Please Read Carefully Before Purchasing:
[*]Turn block on/off
[*]I can't promise that every single feature request will be added to the next release so keep that in mind. But i will try to do my best.
[*]If you bought a modification from be before you will get the product in less then 24 hours (usually less then that). If you are a premium member here you will also get it in less then 24 hours. If you are a new customer and a regular member you will need to wait for at least 48 hours before receiving the modification. That's just a precaution i have to take in order to reduce the fraud to as low as i can.
[*]If more then 48 hours have passed and you did not receive anything yet then PM me with your email addressed you used when purchasing it and i will look into your case.
[*]Since this is a premium modification redistribution and transfers are not allowed! If you would like to resell the modifications then contact me by a PM and we will see what we can do.
[*]Each purchase represents a license, Each licenses is valid for one domain so if you need this modification on several sites you will need to purchase several licenses for the usage or purchase a multi license at a lower cost.
[*]All sales are final. There will be no refunds after the mod was shipped.
Actually using the include/exclude feature will not work for displaying content only on the board index. so use this code in the block content and enter what you want to show instead of the 'BOARDS ONLY' and make sure the checkbox for Enable PHP is on.
As stated in the support topic above the custom blocks available for the IPB 3.3/3.4 version are the following:
As seen here: http://vadimg.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/12/index.html#sample
Nothing was promised more than that, anything else i do is a bonus. If you are actually using the older version that you should have the default blocks listed in the older version support topic, really simple. all you need to do is read and understand which one you are using and what that comes with.
The $30 you paid is not going to make me richer, and you've definitely got what you paid for and probably beyond that. at this point i am probably just willing to refund the money. you've emailed me directly multiple times even though i asked you not to and to post the questions in the support topic (which you posted in the wrong one), you are asking for something that was never listed under the modification description for this version of the modification. it's not my fault that you misread things or thought what you wanted to think.
I can see how this is frustrating and misleading and i should've removed that comment from the new topic so i'll try to add more samples of pre made blocks to the above link this week/weekend from the list you quoted above. I'll also take a look at the status update block to see what's wrong with it and if it shows any errors.
What IPB version are you using?
Again, sorry about the inconvenience and confusion.
