A collection of awesome new features for the widely popular XenPorta 2 Featured Threads addon by 8WayRun! Adds a new horizontal list layout, widget enhancements, animations and more.

Feature list:
  • New horizontal list layout
  • New FontAwesome UI controls for the Feature slider
  • You can now set articles-per-row setting (grid) to individual widgets, overriding the default option!
  • Move article titles below thumbnails
  • Show author avatars on articles, lists and widgets
  • Image hover effects (zoom, rotate, or both)!
  • Set max characters (with ellipsis..) for article titles
  • Change the Category and Continue links below articles to plain buttons or inline text style
  • Changes the Categories widget to use the Xenforo accordion menu appearance
  • Display the Featured Banner or first attached image above article content on the article view page! (Similar to Wordpress blogs.) If a Featured Video has been assigned, it will display above the article!
  • ... Set the priority to check first and display the Featured Banner (if assigned), or the first attached image. If the priority image is not found, the remaining option will be used.
  • ... Set full width and alignment to Featured Banner on the article view page
  • ... Set ratio (16:9, etc) for Featured Video on the article view page
  • Numerous handy style properties to customize your layouts!

Q: Do I need to purchase XenPorta before using this addon?
A: Yes! You can purchase XenPorta 2 PRO here. I personally recommend it with all my themes and to any content-centered community.

Q: Will this addon work with ____ theme?
A: This addon should work with any theme, including the Xenforo default theme, and from popular Xenforo theme providers. It uses default Xenforo CSS, and comes with various Style Properties to customize your appearance.

Q: I am already using a Nulumia theme with some of these features - do I need this addon?
A: I will soon be removing all XenPorta customizations from my themes and shipping them in this addon separately. Until then, you may install this addon with a Nulumia theme, though some redundant styling/CSS may be present.

Q: Where do I see the new features and settings?
A: All settings and Style Properties have been added to the two existing Style Property groups added by XenPorta 2 PRO:
Style Properties -> [8WR] XenPorta 2 (Portal) PRO
Style Properties -> [8WR] XenPorta 2 (Portal) PRO > Feature Slider

There is one setting not found in these groups. In order to set the articles-per-row option to widgets, edit (existing) or add a XenPorta > Articles widget from your Admin -> Appearance -> Widgets page. You will find the setting above the "Maximum entries" setting.

Q: I found a bug or have a feature request. Where can I let you know?
A: Please leave a reply here at the addon discussion thread, or at my Nulumia forums.

Q: I installed the addon, and my layout looks a bit different than some of your screenshots. What gives?
A: The appearance of this addon will be determined by the theme you are using. I have tried to show example screenshots from a number of different themes, including some of my own, and the Xenforo default theme.

Q: Will you add more features to this addon?
A: Yes. I will occasionally be adding more features and settings, including from user feedback.

Q: Will you be doing more "Improvements"-addons for other 8WayRun products?
A: I've been using and working with Jaxel's products for many years, since vBulletin. I'd definitely love to design enhancements for addons such as XenMedio, etc, if the author doesn't mind.

Q: "I think ___ should be added to XenPorta!"
A: This is my humble contribution to the fantastic base product. If Jaxel found any of my settings useful I'd be happy if he takes them. It would be less for me to maintain. But if you like my addon, please try not to bug him too much :)
