  1. shamil added a post in a topic: HTTPS   

    I should add that HTTPS communication doesn't automatically mean that the connection is secure. Since a lot of object on vBulletin's pages are not secured by SSL, the connection and data transmission can be eavesdropped by malicious bytes.

    What's the PDF file about?
  3. shamil added a post in a topic: The worst thing about 3.2   

    The other end isn't clean either.
  4. shamil added a post in a topic: GTmetrix Score   

    Did they? oh well.

    A lot of the images can be optimised with Smufaeces, and sprites made. The software is in early beta, so give it some time.
  6. shamil added a post in a topic: I am impressed   

    The Twitter application is my personal coding. I'm debating whether to release it as a full product, though I don't know how to :/

    No problem, more screenshots to come - just created a second large portion of the intranet with IP.Content.

  7. shamil added a post in a topic: I am impressed   

    I use IPS within a different operating environment to many, a social intranet. I needed to make the software more versatile, and rely on a business to continue the model and commit to the future of the software I was going to choose.
    When I first migrated to IPS products from a competitor, there was a steep learning curve. In attempt to maintain the parity of features between the former and the current software deployed, I invested in purchasing IPS addon products, one of which was the IP.Content addon.

    When I installed IP.Content, I was flummoxed at the options I was given, with pages, articles etc. I quickly copied the articles over from the former system, but I was not sure how to utilise the software fully.

    In search of trying to make everything centralised for my employees, I wanted to integrate either, the forum into the intranet, or the intranet into IP.B+C. Evidently, the latter would be easier, given the capabilities of IP.Content. I required a Twitter account management system incorporated into the software, so I started doing research, using the resources available about using IP.Content.

    Earlier this week, I started on creating the Twitter "hub". Today, I have completed a big portion of it, and my company will begin to use Twitter more effectively than before; and have the ability to collaborate simultaneously. Here is what I've done in a week. The system uses Ajax to post the update, and refreshes divs automatically to gain new content.

    I am very impressed with the capabilities of the software and look forward to further moving the intranet to IP.Conent.

    Actually, I wouldn't say vBulletin is not secure. I'm going through the code myself, and not seeing many more places where security could be a risk in the software. I personally, think that the vBulletin community is much stronger than any product I've ever seen, that includes Apple.
  9. shamil added a comment on a blog entry: IP.Board 3.2.0 Dev Update: UserCP and Misc. Interface Updates   

    These frequent bursts of updates could mean that we're going to be a public beta soon, or something.
  10. shamil added a post in a topic: Talk Me Out of vbulletin4   

    I should add that vBulletin is rewriting everything to an MVC architecture, following OOP and modern paradigms.
  11. shamil added a post in a topic: When 3.2?   

    When it's ready, or Soon.
  12. shamil added a post in a topic: Ability to control a Twitter Account   

    I don't know how I posted this here, it was meant to be posted on my intranet :/

    I don't think IPS would implement this, since the idea may be too specialised.

    It's probably more of a feature for business and the like.

    Basically, it would give specific user groups or users the ability to post and see tweets from a Twitter account. It's more like an integrated Twitter client.
  13. shamil added a post in a topic: Ability to control a Twitter Account   

    I think a good social networking feature would be to allow users or a user group have posting abilities etc, to a, or several Twitter account(s).

    Not sure where this came from though.
  14. shamil added a post in a topic: IPS Portal (End of Life), Mark, Not a Good Idea   

    Personally, I've been trying to move away and deprecate my use of IP.Portal, it practically duplicates IP.Content.

    As a software developer, and a senior business manager, I completely agree with the method IPS has chosen to proceed with the development of the newer platform, but can understand the frustration at the lack of ease and documentation to contribute to the customisation of IP.Content pages. Practically, supporting two applications, which offer the same, yet distinct, solutions, is not going to be financially viable, and will lead to further constraints down the line.

    All that I can suggest is that we continue to support IPS, and learn basic HTML/CSS. For a website that changes dynamically, such as a forum, I feel that it is imperative that its owners have at least some understand in the technologies employed; you never know when you'll need them.

    IPB 3.2 might have touch capabilities

    1. Olivier Turbis

      Haha... I enjoyed your status.

  2. shamil

    A thread's gone missing.... one with criticism in it.

    1. ørret

      Thats how IPS ROLL!

    2. Charles

      What topic are you referring to?

    3. Connor T

      I think I started that, and I didn't intend to.

    4. shamil

      Charles, your thread with a sample of the 3.2 first impressions. :( I was trying to read it. ørret , IPS know better than to censor... I think... I haven't been here long.

    5. Charles

      Oh we weren't censoring. You and Enkidu hijacked what was meant to be a fun topic so I deleted it rather than raise a fuss.

    6. shamil

      My intention was not to hijack. I genuinely don't believe something until it is proven, or I have seen it for myself. The thread was a valuable asset and testimony to 3.2 to some people, but not all.

    7. Charles

      But you and the other guy felt the need to be all cynical and grumpy in the topic so, rather than arguing about it, it was just easier to delete it :)

    8. shamil

      I do apologise if I seemed that way, it certainly wasn't my intention to do so.

    Hi shamil

  4. shamil

    Really wants to upgrade his IPB-based intranet to 3.2. It looks great.
