Just an update for you all.
I have been able to expand upon the xml plugins for xenforo.
Now there is an option panel for all photopost settings needed in xenforo which also now includes whether or not to show a block of photos on the forum home. You can set how many to show turn the block on or off as well where to show and what type of photos to show.
A community photo gallery - My Photo Gallery
I will release that soon just going to go investigate if I can figure out how to add profile stuff to the xenforo profile page.
