The best statistics add-on out there. I had a lot of problems with my old statistics add-on and now with this new one, I'm really happy. It looks good, it works the intended way and my users like it.
Also this developer team is the best I've ever seen. From now on, I'll try to buy their add-ons only, cause they really build some quality stuff. I highly recommend AddonFlare!
The perfect add-on for showing forum stats in a sleek, clean and organized way without taking significant space in your forums.

The support and communication is outstanding. I had an issue (on my end) with the add-on which got quickly solved by AddonFlare. In-depth explanation of the issue and how they solved it with their solution.

Recommend this add-on and their service.
Glad we were able to help, Jul! We appreciate your review :)
A bit hefty price tag but well worth the money. Sometimes when you want quality you have to pay for quality. That's what you'll get with AddonFlares add-ons. He is always ready to implement new features as well. Something you don't often find with many developers. The forum stats add-on is perfect to replace widgets as a true content discovery solution
Thank you for your review, Brad! We’re glad you’re enjoying it and see the value in quality code :)
The add-on is great itself but had issues when I installed a new theme by themehouse. The advanced forum stats css became broken due to conflicting css properties created by the theme. After reaching out to support, I was met with slow replies, which led to me figuring out the issue myself. I asked for help to code it to have it work with the theme., but was met with “thatll cost $90 for custom development” when in my point of view I paid a lot for this add on and should get the help to repair it. Wasn’t asking for help coding just asking for a direction.
Thank you for your feedback! We take care of bugs without an issue. However, further customization specific to 1 site isn't part of the license cost.
This addon is very good, and would be five stars except that the licensing is really expensive. The $35 price tag is only for 3 months, and according to the website, that's 40% off! Otherwise, the support is really great, the author is quick to make updates and really takes into account customer input. I would definitely recommend this addon for anyone that missed having this feature from xf1.
We appreciate your feedback! The prices help keep the great support and updates coming :)
It is an essential addon, it works fantastic, and the support is very fast and prteciso, thanks for the great work guys
Gracias :) Disfruta!
Been waiting for an add-on like this ever since XenForo 2.x came out, I used to use one similar to it on XenForo 1.x. But this is much better and their support is amazing.

Fantastic job guys, a must buy for any forum owner - Great for keeping track of Posts, Threads and your valued Members.
Thank you! We?re glad you?re enjoying it :D
A must have add-on, clean design, works for the new XenForo 2.x and offers great functionality every forum owner should consider.
We appreciate your support and review, enjoy! :)
