    I have an issue with LED panels in a Christmas light show

    ACL Members personal websites

There are a few ways that personal (lighting display) websites and social media pages are presented around the site (e.g. your display location page), but not in a single list like the OP in this thread.

    Discussion and feedback for XenForo 2.1 upgrade

    Unfortunately not. However, XenForo 2.1 does improve on the mobile experience compared to the existing site. Other than multi-site content aggregation, is there any Tapatalk feature that you'd like to see? While there is a XenForo 2 version of Tapatalk out there, it has been reported by admins...
