I'm still using board version 3.3.4, I won't be upgrading until 4.0 (RWD is an important upgrade for me), so it appears I don't have access to all the above mentioned features. The ad system I have doesn't appear to be able to limit ads from displaying on error/stub pages.
I'm recently accepted to Adsense and I'm planning on being very careful not to violate the terms. I want to put an ad code directly into the global template but it will show on error pages and stub pages (violation of Adsense terms). Can someone dream up some kind of if/else statement that might work for this?
I suspected it was the case that the second replacement/tag was unnecessary. In my version of the board, the replacement code doesn't look like that, I guess that was improved in later board versions. I have replaced the regex in my media tag replacement as you describe above and it works perfectly. Many thanks for your assistance.
Thanks, that pointed me in the right direction. What I actually needed to do was create a seconf youtube media tag/replacement for youtube i.e. one to catch all the old HTTP links and match/replace them with HTTPS in the actual post, and a second youtune media replacement for the HTTPS links.
My site has become fully HTTPS. Unfortunately that means all existing youtube videos embedded in media tags are fubared. I wonder if some kindly person could tell me how I might run an SQL command to update all existing yourtube videos that are HTTP to HTTPS to make them all instantly work again? My board version is currently 3.3.4.
Exactly the answer I was hoping for, thanks.
Yes, I take it you read the Google guidelines on the concept i.e. search engines must have untrestricted crawl access. In order to continue benefiting from search engine traffic, real human users must have the first one (or more) page views without the need to log in... thereafter, they must register.
Sounds goood. I'll mull it over some more and then come back to pick your brains on the technical aspect. Many thanks.
I'm posting this in the pre sales forum, even though I'm a long time IPB customer, as I may be tempted into relinquishing my perpetual license depending on what information is yielded from this topic...
I'm so sick of content scrapers and theives, I'm considering putting my entire site behind a free paywall i.e. a paywall but only registration is required for viewing. In order to continue benefiting from considerable search engine traffic, I wish to implement the 'First Click Free' concept. Currently, all of my static content is on a basic CMS I developed myself and there is no integration with that and my forum. However, I may be interested to purchase IP Content if it will simplify some kind of First Click Free system.
So, is there any such system already in place with this software (I've not followed IPB development for a couple of years as I've been so busy) and if not, is it a simple hack to get it to work on my LAMP stack?
Sorry I thought I made it clear, I just want to prevent them seeing removed (i.e. deleted) content in the moderatorCP.
In my case, I want a last final protection against the risk of a moderator going crazy and deleting loads of topics in order to cause damage. If they can't see removed content, they can't permanently delete it, and so it can be restored after a moderator rampage.
I trust my moderators, but there's no reason at all not to have that last protection in place.
I still can't see if this is possible, but it looks as though moderators that were added as individuals to a forum rather than as a group, can't see removed content... but I'm not sure, I'll have to experiement. Thanks.
