    Dear customers,

    As XenForo 2 is on the verge of being released of closing to a stable release, many of you may wondering what is our policy of updates and pricing for that new version and you are absolutely right to do so.

    Now that we are ready to start releasing some xF2 products, it's time for us to answer some of the questions you may have.


    Question
    Xen-Factory, are you going to update your add-ons to XenForo 2 ?

    Answer
    Absolutely ! Though this will require some work as you may know since XenForo developers changed drastically the core code. But we have no intention to let you down !

    However, we have performed a detailed review of our products policy and we have decided that not all of our add-ons were going to be ported to XenForo 2, either because they are now core features or because we feel these products raised low interests among our customers. Anyhow, if one of the abandoned product is of interest for you and you want to fund its portage don't hesitate to contact us.

    Here below is the list of our add-ons with the information on wether or not each of them is going to be ported:

    Question
    Xen-Factory, are you going to continue supporting the XenForo 1 version of your add-ons ?

    Answer
    Of course we will ! Once again, as I said we are not going to let you down. We are going to provide continuing support to our XenForo 1 add-ons as long as XenForo is supporting the 1.X branch.

    However, as XenForo 2 is going to be the new standard, we may drop over time implementation of new features on the XenForo 1 version and only focus on bug fixes releases. As of now, this may be the case for some of our add-ons were the suggestions list was almost - if not entirely - empty.


    Question
    Xen-Factory, I am the happy owner of a license from one of the products you are going to port to XenForo 2, what will happen with my license ?

    Answer
    Fair point ! Well, as you may know, due to the significant changes done to the XenForo core code, add-ons need to be fully rewritten. Per consequence, we have decided that license upgrade from the XenForo 1 version to the XenForo 2 version of our add-ons won't be free.

    But don't worry, we have of course reserving a special offer to our existing customers. Mostly for all of our XenForo 2 add-ons, if you had an active license of the XenForo 1 add-on version in the 6 month preceding the release, we will be offering a 50% discount on the purchase price. I said "mostly" on purpose as we can't provide such a discount on our low cost add-ons.

    • Custom Username Icons: No discount (license will be changed to lifetime)
    • Default Editor Format: No discount
    • Document Manager: 50% discount will apply
    • Enhanced Thread Creation Restrictions: No discount
    • Extended Cover: 50% discount will apply
    • Extended Moderation and Banning: 50% discount will apply
    • Forum Sales: 50% discount will apply
    • Forum Statistics: 50% discount will apply
    • Image Slider: 50% discount will apply
    • Media Of The Month: 50% discount will apply
    • Members Map: 50% discount will apply
    • Multiple Countdown: No discount
    • Nodes Icon Tweak: No discount (license will be changed to lifetime)
    • RM Download From List: Free add-on
    • Roster: 50% discount will apply
    • Tags Generator: 50% discount will apply
    • Thread Automation: 50% discount will apply
    • Thread Footer Blocks/Widgets: 50% discount will apply
    • Thread Print: Free add-on
    • Thread Tabs: 50% discount will apply
    • Thread Template: Free add-on
    • Tournament: 50% discount will apply
    • Votings System: 50% discount will apply
    • XFMG Daily Upload Limit: Free add-on

    You may have noticed that not all of our add-ons are contained in the above list. The four add-ons which are concerned are RM Marketplace, Background Chooser, Nodes Background Image Customization and Profile Background Image Customization, and there is a good reason for that.

    While for RM Marketplace, we are still deep in thought on the policy we are going to apply as we have some big plans for it. For the 3 others, they are not going to stay in that form and will most certainly be merged into a single add-on, thus leading us to consider a no discount policy.


    Question
    Understood. But Xen-Factory, how can I benefit from this discount ?

    Answer
    Unfortunately, we have to process these requests manually. So you just need to go here and create a new thread with your purchase request and don't forget to state your PayPal email address so that we can send you the payment request.

    Once we have received your payment, we will add the license to your account and you will be able to download it from your licenses area.



    This is the end of our Q&A thread related to our XenForo 2 policy, if you have any question on the points here above or about any other topic related to this migration to XenForo 2, don't hesitate to ask.

    Best Regards,
    The Xen-Factory staff
