    Sorry I'm late replying.
     
    Pip Popup is likely going to be upgraded, even though pips themselves have been all but removed in IPS4. In general, my intention is to upgrade all my hooks as the platform allows, as soon as possible after final release. I've already got some code ported over, but I'd like to get things tested on the final version of the suite before handing anything out.
  2. Lewis P added a post in a topic: What type of computer is your daily driver?   

    Having now "fully" switched back from OSX that I started using in 2008, I've got a custom built Windows 8.1 desktop (21.5" screen - unfortunately the largest I could get onto my desk) and a Surface Pro 3 as my main devices. Also got a 2012 Retina MB Pro (with dodgy trackpad and charger) for any work that still requires a Mac...
     
    I can give my two cents. ​I've been using one for a couple of months (only bought my own last week, but that's another story) and it is a slight learning curve, what with the keyboard case, but it really is a fantastic device. I wouldn't want to do any proper serious long writing sessions on it (although  I have written a 3 000 essay on one) , but it's more than suitable for the day-to-day stuff. The good thing is as well, you could just use a Bluetooth "normal" keyboard if you needed to as well.
    And FWIW, I have noticed that *most* of the PC World/Currys stores around here have one or two units on display, each with the type cover.

    I think its because attachments are missing right now. l will try to find it again, but no promises!
  4. Lewis P added a comment on a blog entry: Get Ready For IPS 4.0!   

    Stupid question (as usual with me, really), but is the memory limit required to be 128MB, or is that again just the advised limit, with anything lower causing issues entirely our fault?
     
     
    I only ask because one of the sites I help out with has a host that won't raise this above 64MB for some reason (annoying, but things work fine unless installing a mega language pack), and wondering if I should be on the lookout for some other hosting for them?
  5. Lewis P added a comment on a blog entry: 4.0 - Introducing Themes   

    Can we still do manual template merge reports between versions?
  6. Lewis P added a comment on a blog entry: 4.0 - Introducing the new AdminCP   

    Oooh, responsive admin panel! In fact, all of this looks really impressive. Especially liking the "flat" look.
     
     
     
    Oh, but it needs some pink.
  7. Lewis P added a post in a topic: Hide from Sitemap   

    Yeah, that sounds logical enough to me!
  8. Lewis P added a post in a topic: Hide from Sitemap   

    Been doing a bit of cleanup on my site this week, and I've noticed in my sitemap files that there are some IP.Content pages listed that I have restricted only to administrators. Not a massive problem, no. But I try to have logical URLs, and if you knew my niche, you'd be able to figure out what was on the "hidden" page just by the URL.


    In short, can we get an option to hide pages from the sitemap generation, just like we have to "do not include" with forums?
  9. Lewis P added a post in a topic: Suggestion: Using CSS Sprites for Icons   


    Woo! Anything that shortens my development time. :p
  10. Lewis P added a post in a topic: Suggestion: Using CSS Sprites for Icons   


    I can already see it now: "Where are my image buttons? You're taking away my creativity!" :p
  11. Lewis P added a comment on a blog entry: 4.0 - Javascript framework   

    I've got a problem - I've got to come up with clever ways to use all this. :p
  12. Lewis P added a post in a topic: IPS Connect Feedback   



    If it is an issue though, they'll fix it. I mean, they use IPS Connect on these very forums to connect to the client area. Don't mean to state the obvious - but that clearly works.

    Anyway, I'm out. I just think calling the support useless isn't the best way to go about this.
  13. Lewis P added a post in a topic: IPS Connect Feedback   


    You just said it - an offline board and an online board. The offline board is for development, and IPS don't support development boards.
  14. Lewis P added a comment on a blog entry: IPS 4.0: Editor - Part 3: Customisation and BBCode   

    From a non-official standpoint, I don't see why this wouldn't be possible under the new system.... Store it like normal, then on display, parse out the tag with the members' name.
  15. Lewis P added a comment on a blog entry: IPS 4.0: Editor - Part 3: Customisation and BBCode   

    Love it!
     
    Question about the skins (sorry!) - can you "include" a CKEditor skin in with your community skin or does it have to be a separate import?
     
    I understand if you can't answer. :p

      Hello! Enjoying my upgrader bug finding right about now..... :p

    2. AndyF

      hehe :)

  1. Lee » Lewis P

    Still alive there Lewis? :P

    1. Lewis P

      Just. College = cry worthy. :(

      How've you been?

  2. Connor T » Lewis P

    sweet new avatar

    1. Lewis P

      Haha! Thanks :D

  3. Lewis P

    Come up with an amazing skin idea. I don't know if it's already been done though....

    1. ♥ Adam ♠

      Maybe interested in what that is

  4. Lewis P

    Right... will get my skinning board updated tonight, forget my modding board. :D

    1. Jamie.

      i have a server hosted test board and localhost .. i think i will do my localhost :P

    2. Lewis P

      I have about 20 test boards on 3 servers and localhost using versions from 2.3.6 to Beta 3.

      Don't ask.

    3. skindev

      Why don't you have IPB 1.3? The best one..

    4. Lewis P

      I wasn't around then.

  5. Lewis P

    *cough* Nothing to see here... http://twitpic.com/5m4uhz

    1. AndyF

      :D , I'm sure that will be excellent.

    2. Lewis P

      Will be my proper first 'from scratch' app. Not sure whether to charge for it or not, but hey! :)

    3. AlexJ

      Can i extract emails from yahoo, gmail, etc?

    4. Lewis P

      It'll be something I add, yeah. Right now I'm just getting the 'basic' linking working before I do import/exports

  6. Lewis P

    Upgrading an IN_DEV board is a pain. :D

    1. Marcher Technologies

      Good to know>.<

    2. Lewis P

      It's not too bad really - you upgrade like normal, then you have to rebuild the master templates, css and languages. Only takes 10 minutes, but when you want to 'get to work' - eurgh!

    3. Marcher Technologies

      Query... ACP IN_DEV or full-on?

    4. Lewis P

      Full on. I've never tried ACP only

    5. stoo2000

      Don't you use the inDev shell script ?

    6. Lewis P

      No.... Didn't even know there was one.

    7. stoo2000

      look in the _tools directory.

    8. Lewis P

      That'll make my job 10x easier....

    9. stoo2000

      Apart from I don't think it works, doesn't do anything here..

    10. Lewis P

      I would try it, but I haven't got anymore dev boards to upgrade. :p

    11. stoo2000

      buildInDev just creates the correct directory and exports skin & css. Looks like it may be a windows issue, posted it to the tracker.

    12. .Peter

      I don't think inDev.php works for the beta versions yet. Also ACP only IN_DEV causes me TON's of problems.

    13. stoo2000

      You think wrong :P

  7. Lewis P

    Need to get some IP.Board applications written. Must come up with some ideas!

    1. iFMF

      a app that makes skinning easy :)

    2. Lewis P

      Seems a bit out of scope for an app, especially with the new skin creator in Beta 2

    3. Echelon One

      Perhaps an arcade app for Mochigames, installing games via their JSON feed.. just an idea! :)

    4. Lewis P

      Seems like something that could be integrated into iArcade rather than a separate app. Nice idea though! :)

    5. Jamie.

      A revamp of the warning system

    6. Lewis P

      That's more hook based than application based. I also personally have no problems with the warning system. ;)

    7. Jamie.

      ok :(

      Clan CMS

    10. Lewis P

      Not even sure what you mean with that one. Surely you could make use of IP.Content for that and use Member groups on the forum?

    11. TheRevTastic

      Affiliates system, like the mod from back in 2.3.6.

    12. AlexJ

      Referral system so you can even invite users from yahoo, gmail, etc.

    13. dogpatch

      better social sharing of forum content. the little tiny sharing icons at the bottom of threads are a joke. nobody uses digg anymore or reddit or stumbleapon, its all on twitter and facebook now. huffingtonpost.com has a nice, clean, big, sharing box, somebody needs to make an app (acually its more like a hook really) to copy that box and put that at the bottom of every thread.

      Copy the sharing box on HuffingtonPost.com articles and replace the lame sharing icons at the botton of threads with something like that, that uses the big 3 sharing sites.

    16. Lewis P

      That sounds more like something skinning based. Why create a hook when it can be skinned that way?

    17. Lewis P

      I started on the referral system this evening. Will post some blogs soon. :)

      haha. Well I suppose that's better than 666 or 999 (for us 'over here' at least)

    2. Lewis P

      Can't argue with that :p

  9. Lewis P

    Anyone else noticed that the mobile skin doesnt work on Android on this forum?

    1. xCurlyx

      yes hmm wonder whyy

    ProStripe 3.2 All coded up.... http://i56.tinypic.com/zyj29x.png #ipb

  11. Lewis P

    Going to update ProStripe to IPB 3.2 as my first release. It's due an update: http://putzy.net/storage/prostripe_preview.png

    1. Tom Christian

      nice. The pm / notifications text alongside the icons works really well tbh

  12. Lewis P

    So much to do but so little time!

  13. Lewis P

    ANOTHER 3.2 hook submitted to the marketplace.

    1. nitt

      great:-)

  14. PSNation » Lewis P

    Excellent Work On The 3.2 Hooks ;)

    1. Lewis P

      Hehe! Thanks a lot. They still need a bit of work though. :)

  15. Lewis P

    Just finished my first IPB 3.2 skin. No, no screenshots - it's remaining hidden for now. ;)

    1. Stars25

      How do you plan on getting it ready for final? Just doing the edits for each Beta?

    2. Lewis P

      Template edits I'll manually remake (I've got a .txt file with the changes list), for the CSS I've made a new one: custom_styles.css and I override the default styles in there. It means I haven't got to redo my CSS edits. :)

    3. Stars25

      Good idea! Mind sending me the .txt of the changes? :)

    4. Lewis P

      Eh? For my skin changes? That's what I mean - a list of templates I've edited and what I've changed.

    5. Stars25

      Ah oh nevermind. For some reason I was thinking there was a previous version that you have the template changes from haha.

  16. Lewis P

    This is... weird. Only happens on every xth refresh: http://putzy.net/storage/strange_header.png

    1. Ryan H.

      Browser bug most likely; looks like it failed to obey or apply the min-width.

    2. Lewis P

      Yeah, most probably.

      The strange thing is, the rest of the page renders correctly. :/

    4. Lewis P

      Yeah, fixed that now. Was doing some work behind the scenes on my server ;)

  17. Lewis P

    My second IPB 3.2 hook submitted. I'm on a roll! :D

    1. AndyF

      You have a quick PM :)

    2. Lewis P

      And you have a reply, and a fixed file. :)

    3. JPavey

      Who is this kid!

    4. Lewis P

      An extremely bored one. :D

    5. AndyF

      Thanks! :)

  18. Lewis P

    Is $post['author']['_online'] not available in the post template anymore? I'm always getting '1', even if the member is offline.....

  19. Lewis P

    Profile Rep/Liked Posts Tab in progress - http://twitpic.com/596ws6 - so far so good...

    1. .Peter

      new hook?

    2. Lewis P

      Not really new.. There is a version for 3.1 that I made, but it's buggy as hell. Patching it up for 3.2. :)

  20. Lewis P

    I've forgotten how to make hooks. :s

    1. Lewis P

      Ha! I was just hooking into the wrong place....

  21. Lewis P

    Lets get these hooks written and released!
