    I seem to be getting a lot of white space in  short posts with not much text any ideas. Thanks.

    Ok managed to fix this eventually. It was something to do with the skin not loading properly and creating a new default skin fixed it.

    Just upgraded my test site to Beta 3 and the text editor is just greyed out with no tool bar showing and not letting me enter any text. Have I overlooked something simple?

    Image size has always been a confusing issue with IPB. I would like a simplistic way of setting maximum image sizes per members group by file size. This combined with the ability for members to upload any size images and the images will be automatically reduced to the maximum limit. I know this is just about currently achievable but it is not straightforward to set up and the size reduction is rather random.

    Fast work cheers !

    OK I see so the default thumbnail size in the post regulates the image size. It would be nice if there was an independent method of image resizing for the hook or block.

    How do you control the size of the images, as although I can control the width of the text I cant control the images?

    Cheers really appreciated
     
    If only there was some basic guidance for Ip Content it would be so much easier....

    A good point. The default article template allows for only one image to be uploaded. Can this be managed to allow for multiple images to be posted, like within forum posts?

    Nice hook. Works well.
  12. GMIC added a post in a topic: VPS Needed?   

    My view is don't underestimate the effect a slow server has on membership. I lost members through not upgrading my server quick enough as they got tired of waiting for pages to load or images to upload. It is not only IP board to consider, what other IP add ons are you using Ip Gallery or IP blog, how many hooks etc ?? All impact on performance.
     
    I have 500,000 post and about 8500 members and I have to run on a dedicated server. Overkill some might say, but the reality is if you want to keep your forum alive in a competitive market then you need to ensure the basics such as a quick loading forum is essential, especially as broadband speeds get faster. I switched to two different managed VPS servers and neither could cope with the demand of my board. I would consider an upgrade sooner rather than later. 
     
    As mentioned if you are not that adept with managing a server, then a managed VPS is absolutely essential. That slightly extra monthly cost is worth its weight in gold and will make your life a lot more trouble free !

    You are right this issue seems to have been sorted. Originally limiting pixel size worked in resizing in dimensions but I originally found this did not significantly reduce memory footprint. This is now not the case as reducing pixel size now also seems to vastly reduce memory size. 
     
    Thanks sorted !

    Cheers will have a play around to see what works.
