Posted by Mark , 24 October 2014 - * * * * - · 584 views

IPS Community Suite 4.0 is nearly here, and we'll be distributing betas very soon. But 4.0 is really just the beginning; with the new tightly integrated, one-version suite of applications, we're already starting to think about all of the features we'd like to add in the future. This brings us nicely to the final 4.0 feature we'd like to talk about: the up...

4.0 - Cover photos

Posted by Rikki , 09 June 2014 - * * * - - · 8,425 views

I want to briefly show our new cover photo support. Cover photos allow users to upload an image to represent something in the community; we currently support them in profiles and calendar events and may roll out support to other areas later.
 
Here's a video of it in action for a calendar event.
 

 
It's really simple to use, and of cour...

4.0 - Front-end Responsiveness Round-up

Posted by Rikki , 19 May 2014 - * * * * * · 11,278 views
Suite
We've previously shown how responsiveness works in the AdminCP, but I'd like to briefly introduce responsiveness on the front end, and pick a few views to show you as examples (this will be a screenshot-heavy entry!)
 
What is responsiveness?
 
Before we get to that, allow me to recap what responsiveness is. Responsive design is a method by wh...

4.0 - Profiles

Posted by Rikki , 16 May 2014 - * * * * * · 11,045 views

Profiles are one of the key sections of a community, as everyone knows. They are what represent your users; where their information is shown and their content is gathered. When users contribute quality content to your community, their profile is where other users go to find it in one place. In short, it's an important area.
 
In IPS4, profiles have h...

4.0: Quick Translating

Posted by Mark , 15 May 2014 - * * * * * · 5,894 views

A while ago I blogged about some of the internationalization and localization changes in 4.0. One of the things I mentioned is a "Visual Language Editor" which allows you to quickly change any of the verbiage used throughout the suite just by clicking on a word of phrase.
 
Not only is the really useful for those who want to translate the IPS Commun...

IP.Board 3.x supports "My Media", which enables you to share other content from within the community by using the "My Media" button on the editor. This results in: 
 

 
While this works, it has a few shortcomings:
 
The styling of the block isn't really designed for each type of content it might show
Users have to click the My Media...

4.0 - Q&A Forums

Posted by Rikki , 12 May 2014 - * * * * * · 10,991 views
Board
One of the most distinctive uses for a forum is that of a 'knowledge community', where users visit in order to get help with a problem or question. Our own Pre-sales forum uses this model, but we also have many customers who run forums that are almost exclusively knowledge-based (such as Roxio and Evernote).
 
IP.Board 3.x introduced the concept of a...
