  1. realmaverickuk added a comment on a blog entry: IPS Social Suite (4.0)   

     
    So out of the box, the suite will all still live under /forum/? 
     
    Usability and good architecture are both lacking in the 3.x suite and I really hope these are improved in 4.0. /blogs/ /galleries/ and everything else should be independent from the forum. The fact "Forum" shows up in titles etc of unrelated sections really pains me. 
     
    A focus group dedicated to SEO and another to UI should be setup if they haven't already been.

    If your users are able to create blogs for any topic, it will most certainly dilute the theme of your website. I'd personally add a noindex tag to all of the blogs and perhaps even bar Google from indexing them in the first place. If the blogs all shared a common theme, it wouldn't be an issue.

    No word on what's changed?!

    Shame this has a recurring fee. I would have happily paid for the mod, but never a fan of recurring fees.
  5. realmaverickuk added a post in a topic: Removing forum name, from topic titles   

    Nobody any ideas? I'm guessing it's gonna need a hook of some kind.
     
    @IPB could we at least have the option to configure the titles?
  6. realmaverickuk added a post in a topic: Removing forum name, from topic titles   

    Hi, I want to remove the forum name from the titles of a topic. 
     
    For example: /topic/324669-example-topic-name/
     
    The title is: example topic name - Example forum name - Site name
     
    I want it to be: example topic name - Site name
     
    I cannot fathom why the forum name, is in the title of the thread. If you look at VBSEO, they don't do this, why would they. And we all know VBSEO forums perform exceptionally in the search engines.
     
    Can you please point me in the right direction of achieving this?
     
    @matt why this decision was made? Sometimes there's method to the madness but I cannot see any benefit at all.
     
    Anyhow, this isn't meant to become a debate about whether to have it or not, more that I dont want it and would love some help.
     
    Thanks

    Thanks I'll give that a go.
  8. realmaverickuk added a post in a topic: Setting a non-standard IPB Mobile skin?   

    I created a new mobile skin, hid the default mobile skin, removed the user agent mappings for the old mobile skin and added them to the new one.
     
    However the old mobile skin shows still, via mobile. I can manually select the new mobile skin, but that's it. 
     
    Any ideas how I fix this?
     
    Thanks
  9. realmaverickuk added a post in a topic: Allow moderators to change users display name   

    Is there a mod for this? I cannot find one.

    Moderators can alter everything but a users display name, which often contains profanity, so this ability would be useful. It's frustrating for moderators to have to keep sending PM's to admin and it's frustrating for admin, having to deal with what should be a moderators role.

    Cheers
  10. realmaverickuk added a post in a topic: SQL query to delete status updates   

    Hi guys, I'd like to delete status updates older than 30 days.

    Do any of you happen to know an SQL query I can use, to achieve this?

    Thanks a lot.
  11. realmaverickuk added a comment on a file: [HQ] Badges   

    Little bit disappointed that it's limited to 5 badges.

    It means I cannot give each of the groups a badge. Which is a shame.

    Are blocks on blogs broke?! Cant add or delete them. Annoying!

  2. realmaverickuk

    So frustrated with IPS :(

  3. realmaverickuk

    Loves IPB 3.2

  4. realmaverickuk

    is dying here! 3.2 Beta, PLEASE :)

    1. xChris777

      Agreed, I literally have this site open all day waiting for it. I would almost take an unstable version :)

    2. Charles

      I have a beta.

    3. Fishfish0001

      I have one too.... (a fish that is)

    4. realmaverickuk

      Charles, that's mean. Seriously, I refresh the page about 100 times per day, waiting for the beta. I have 2 devs on standby to start the conversion and to build several new apps.

    5. xChris777

      So .. Charles, um .. give it to us?

  5. realmaverickuk

    3.2 really does crap all over VB. Can't wait for Beta!

    1. Jamie.

      like button is needed again :P

  6. realmaverickuk » bfarber

    Sent you a PM, take a look at it ASAP :)

  7. realmaverickuk

    RELEASE 3.2 BETA ALREADY!! ARGHHHHHHH

    1. Amfidiusz-PL

      Arghhhh!

    2. mat206

      I think the first step is to see it on this site first

    3. Amy T

      Do not make them release it too soon it needs to have bugs fixed first.

    4. DarkGizmo

      Jeez, be patient. Cuz if they released it tomorrow everyone would be 'Barneys Girlfriend'ing and moaning that there's so many bugs in it. IT'S A BETA and not mean't for a live environment anyway so who cares if they take longer to FIX MORE BUGS before releasing it?

    5. Amy T

      I am with Gizmo here.

    6. realmaverickuk

      Gizmo, because some of us, have bigger sites than others. We have a couple months development once beta is released. So we're anxious to get hold of the beta, to start development.

    7. Amy T

      I want it out too but I also do not want it to be buggy like the gallery 4 is.

    8. Collin S.

      We have to take both types of customers into account. While we want to put out a polished, great product, we also understand the needs for development reasons to get their hands on it early. As the old saying goes: "It will be released when it is ready."

    9. Amy T

      Oh and collin you need to get your butt working on the Arcade.

    10. d33j4y

      If they released it tomorrow or whenever, Id still wait because most of the mods Ive added to my forum probably wont be compatible with the new version..

    11. TeamJesus

      yea i'd wait too, prolly play with new 3.2 on localhost and yea learn its ways so then i'd be one with the IB force LOL! :)

  8. realmaverickuk
