Disappointed the gallery home page is changing. I liked it and don't really want to have to mod it to get it the same as how it was before. It should be optional, I thought you'd got it just right with the current implementation.
The way I look at IP.Content is that it's like those flatpack wardrobes that you can get at superstores. It looks great on the box, but when you get it home you realize you have to be some DIY expert to get it moving.
The problem I have with this is that DIY experts will probably just make their own wardrobe from scratch anyway so would have no use for a flatpacked product. And those that aren't end up with either something cobbled together, the doors falling off, or they get fed up and don't ever use it.
I've had to hire someone to make sense of IP.Content and even they are tearing their hair out. And they have a long history of working with IP Board.
I'm currently away from home in France so I'm not getting onto our forum as often as I usually do. One frustrating thing that I'm finding with our IPB3 powered board which I haven't noticed until now is that View New Posts and Active Topics are nowhere near as good as VB3's View New Posts feature.
At the moment there are about five posts/updated topics that I haven't read. However when I click View New Posts, or Active Topics they aren't appearing. If I hadn't have manually searched, which is impractical for most users, I would have missed these posts.
Is there any way to set this up better in admin, or failing that could it be considered to fix this. At least have a look at VB3's View New Posts and include the same thing.
I think this is the only thing that's making me miss VB3 as I know that the forum would be more active was it not for people missing out on seeing new posts >_<
