XPress solves a lot of issues when bridging XenForo and WordPress. If you run content and a forum, subscriptions and benefits, community and information, opinion and organization, one to many and many to many communication channels, and more this product is the perfect way to connect two large sides of your platform.
Many platform directors struggle to keep two distributed software consistent. You have to maintain the theme and template separately which can be quite costly, to not only build but to maintain over time as well. You also need to manage two comment systems, two user accounts, two staff and usergroup levels, two subscription systems, and more. This lets you go choose your preferred tools and bridges them to the other software.
XenForo is regarded as one of the most easily customizable and powerful forum platforms on the market. And WordPress powers roughly 1 in 5 websites on the internet. Pairing them together only made sense. Please do try our demo, and see how seamless this integration truly is.
