  2. IPBWI.com Matthias Reuter added a post in a topic: SV Auto Meta Description   

    Hi Draffi,

    okay, let me go in detail to answer:

    1. Meta Keywords
    Example: <meta name="keywords" content="keyword1,keyword2,keyword3,keyword4">
    Result: Completely useless, just avoid this output, as it never will help, but could result in a minimal decrease in ranking.

    Using Meta Tags with <h1> Tags could be a good idea, if content has a bad existing <h1> tag content. Replacing the bad content with the tags content, could result in a better ranking, but there should be no more than one <h1> tags.

    2. Meta Description
    Example: <meta name="description" content="This could be a well optimized teaser, rough limit: max 157 chars.">
    Result: No affect in ranking. Google always looks for what's inside <body>- and <title>-Tags, to determine the ranking of a site for specific content/keywords.
    BUT: If google has issues finding a good teaser text for search results, sometimes google will decide using meta description instead. This could increase the Click-Through-Rate.

    Using Meta Description within <h1> Tags isn't a good ídea. Each page should already have a h1 tag with good content. Google does not honor multiple h1 tags. Sometimes, it could work using <h2> tags additionally for such meta description, to highlight to google AND users, that it's actually important content.

    It would be possible to see whole topic even as guest through meta description. just want to make sure, that permissions are respected by plugin.


    sorry, could you explain that request further?

    Hi,

    thank you for your questions. On some IPB installations, I've seen global meta description only, so all topics and forums had identical meta description. This could be a theme issue, but my Hook will help there, providing a unique meta description again. With default theme, the meta description will be optimized (e.g. limiting descriptions to max 157 chars and having ... for showing there is more content). If you have no issues with your meta description, this plugin isn't that urgent or valuable for you, nevertheless, if you want to further optimize your meta descriptions, this hook could help.

    Kind regards,

    Matthias

    Redirect Script for vBulletin Album images to IP.gallery images is a script which redirects from old vBulletin Album images to new IP.gallery images.  This script will save you hundreds of hours for converting these links manually.  It's made for redirecting image-links or image-source-tags, as IP.board converter does not take care for these URLs.
     
    In Short, your benefits:
    Redirect Script saving you up to hundreds of hours of manual work! No changes on your Database (read only queries)!  
    Requirements:
    Currently, vBulletin 4.x is supported only. modrewrite is required for .htaccess redirects. Installation:
    Copy directory "sv_vb2ipb_images_redirects" into your board's root directory. Open the directory within your browser via http:// YOUR_BOARD_URL /sv_vb2ipb_images_redirects/ Add the shown .htaccess code at the top of your .htaccess file in your board's root directory Uninstallation:
    Revert Changes to .htaccess file Delete directory http:// YOUR_BOARD_URL /sv_vb2ipb_images_redirects/ How does it work:
    The script looks for the old image ID saved by IPB converter script. ID was found? great, redirect to new image URL. If the ID wasn't found (or saved under "you'll never find it"), the script will perform a search based on old filename. If lucky, the first entry found will be used. Known Issues:
    The script cannot find images which cannot be found even by ID or a search query. Please be aware that there could be a small amount of images which cannot be retrieved. Unfortunately, these cannot be fixed by this script, as this is an issue of improperly converted images from vb albums. Sometimes, other filetypes than images are placed within image tags, this is an issue by the IPB conversion script. If you see broken images, please check first wether e.g. a PDF file is embed within image tags. Just change BBcode in post for that file to solve that issue. At least you don't have to manually search for the new file link.

  11. IPBWI.com Matthias Reuter added a post in a topic: License Question - sub-directories of one domain   

    Hi Ken,

    thanks for quoting my topics, but in the meanwhile, when reviewing my points, I'd say that there are some specific cases where the master/slave system of IP:connect could be better than the "all master/all sync" way of my plugin. There isn't only one way to reach a target. Thats why I'm going to develop an IP:connect master application in future, allowing to manage and sync the userbase of different boards and maybe additionally WordPress installations.

    In your specific case I'd strongly recommend using my IPBWI for WordPress plugin with a single IP.board installation. It will be required to enhance IPBWI for WordPress for supporting synced usergroups (maybe incl. secondary groups management, depending on your payment system).

    Yeah it would cost a few hundred EUR, but on the long run, you'd get a smooth solution for your business.

    Finally, I'd say Invision Power is providing all tools and API/function-access to allow deep integration, but I would never demand providing out-of-the-box plugins for other systems from IPS.

    Kind regards,

    Matthias
  12. IPBWI.com Matthias Reuter added a post in a topic: Can IP Content really be used in place of WordPress?   


    You may try out IPBWI for WordPress allowing fully synced comment section between WordPress and IP.board. Old WP comments are still displayed on WP (without syncing them to IP.board), but new comments will be saved within IP.board and displayed on WordPress. That feature also includes full control of displaying that comment list through admin panel and theme files.
  13. IPBWI.com Matthias Reuter added a post in a topic: Integration between IPB and a website   

    Yeah, of course IPBWI is still maintenanced and I'd say IPBWI is still a popular addon, Brandon. ;) Everything the topic author asked can be done rapidly via IPBWI or through IP.board framework directly. IPBWI actually uses parts of IP.board framework as much as possible to avoid redundant code for tasks already done. There are many users integrating IPBWI within IP.board itself because they are more comfortable with my API than with IP.board's framework - but that's a question of taste, only. See documentation page of IPBWI or live examples for more information about the possibilities.
  14. IPBWI.com Matthias Reuter added a post in a topic: IP.Content "Databases" vs. "wp-types" (Wordpress)   


    That's correct. I'm the author of IPBWI / IPBWI for WordPress and the reason for the high prices actuallky is the effort for keeping up compatibility between IP.board and WP. I'm maintanencing the IP.board bridge since many years and have customers counting on that for their business.

    I've made many custom development work based on WordPress and IP.board. I'd still say the best combination on a long run would be WordPress <- IPBWI -> IP.board. I'd not recommend buddypress when you want to manage a big community, you'll depend on many third party plugins to get about half of IP.board features by loosing much performance, stability and flexibility. Additionally, IP.board is still one of the best performance and security optimized bulletin softwares on the market - combined with IPBWI containing the most flexible API-bridge.

    Woocommerce is a great basic shopping plugin for WordPress and with IPBWI for WordPress it is possible to show WordPress widgets in IP.board sidebar. I thought about integration of IP.nexus features into my API to make IP.nexus features (e.g. create new product, cart view, list products, product details, add products to cart, order etc.), because I think that would be a nice benefit for users of IPBWI and IPBWI for WordPress. Unfortunately, there's currently a too small usergroup using IP.nexus asking for that, so I decided spending my development time to more requested features. Additionally, IP.nexus is far away from a user friendly frontend per default, pricing options are very limited and there is a lack of optimization based on different countries. I'd not recommend IP.nexus for a retail shop selling products online. But as small solution for selling digital goods or for member promotion, IP.nexus could be a good decision.

    Finally, I'd say it makes sense to combine different specialized software through an API. You should make sure that there is ongoing support for all applications you plan to use. Summarized:
    IP.board is the best choice for your community WordPress is the best choice for your content being published Both, Woocommerce and IP.nexus actually are very limited and far away from an enterprise eCommerce system like oxid eSales or shopware.
