I have been shopping around for many new XenForo add-ons to enhance the forum experience here at Admin Forum. And I was curious what are other fellow XenForo webmasters go to add-on selection for the platform?

Here are a few of my favorites:
  • DragonByte Credit and Shop
  • Siropu Ads Manager and Referral System
  • [CV6] Node Icons
  • [OzzMod] Badges
What about yours?

Not sure what awards system we use over at DH actually but that, and the credits/shop system from DragonByte. In terms of the node icons, we just use CSS to add them.

I love the Spotify addon from ThemeHouse as well, fits in very well with a general discussion forum.

I've barely used 70% of the add-ons on this list. I need to check them out. Out of curiosity, why would you be cautious in recommending it to others? Did those add-ons break your site at any point?

Well for me its just a hobby and purchasing them is a large cost, but be careful of who you are dealing with as some Dev's do very bad coding.

For example Classifieds from Nixififty. Guy never responds, barely updates it, bugs present that makes it poor to use.

Yeah, I tend to stick to addons which are highly rated or downloaded just to be sure that the addon doesn't break the site.

For example Classifieds from Nixififty. Guy never responds, barely updates it, bugs present that makes it poor to use.
Oh wow I mean I never used any of Nixfifty's addons but its good to know cause when you pay for an addon you expect there to be proper support of course. It's a part of the price.
I have Bob's Classifieds, and i know he will respond within an hour.
Is this Bob from XenAddons? I have been meaning to buy a few plugins from there.

That's good to know, definitely looking to get a few addons from him. Good to know that people trust his work and support. 😁
