My co-owner and I have had to shut down our Xenforo forum because it’s been costing him too much with all the add-ons and stuff. He couldn’t afford it after all. Do you personally find it too expensive for you?
I always thought that if you wanna have a nice forums you will have to invest a lot of money in it. Having a clunky forum software makes your users experience very bad so they might end up leaving..I will admit that yes it is expensive.On top of the software hosting, domain and renewal fees, many addons are charged for. I don't have any problem with that and its good to see coders get compensated but it can add up. Especially if you add on branding removal costs.
