Many websites including slions.net do decorate links with favicons from their target. To achieve this on XenForo I've been using that Favicon For Links AddOn. It is simply using a Google service to fetch said favicon. However I grew frustrated at the amount of prominent sites whose...

Here we comment on some of the XenForo settings adjustment we find appropriate.
Increase maximum messages length as needed.
Increase maximum image per message as needed.
Disable inline editing if desired.
If like me you want to prevent newly registered users on your XenForo forum to post new threads here is how you do it.

Some web browsers, notably on smartphones, let web developers specify a colour that will be used to decline the tints of the web browser header and title bar as well as the smartphone status bar. The following StackOverflow comment provides code samples on how to achieve that.
