Hi, I'm looking for a nice drop down menu for my website. I've used chrome menu but it had issues on IE6 (which most users use...). Does anyone know of a good cross browser, cross platform dropdown menu that is SEO friendly and actually works. I just looked at my site on the new ipad and it doesn't support flash and wondered what the best option was for a nice, dynamic menu moving forward. I'd like one that supported older browsers and also looked good on newer browsers or mobile devices like the ipad and iphone. Not sure what you all use, but any help is appreciated.
Hi, I'm looking for good ecommerce suite. Currently I'm using zen-cart.com which is a good free open source ecommerce solution, but I'm looking for a more pro-quality option. Not sure what you all have used or what ecommerce solutuions are available. I noticed Magneto.com has a migration pack for zen-cart and have a 'community' and 'enterprise' eddition. Magneto communtiy edition is free and the enterprise edition starts at $8900/yr which looks like it mainly includes support and customization. Deployments and Customizations aren't too much of an issue for me and a moderen scalable, secure software solution for sales would be super. :rolleyes:
So, which one works best, is least buggy and cheapest to run/support.... Would rather not have to pay a yearly subscription fee, but don't mind a one time payment including downloads and support for a good quality ecommerce package.
+1 on calendar updates. I like how the calendar is layed out and how it looks, but think it could be a more central feature to IPB3. Post could be automated based on calendar dates, or users could comment on events. I'm wondering if the calendar could be used to schedule content triggers, emailers, PMs, Blogs, etc.
----> Ideas 'from the web'
"aggregation service for time-based updates from your social sites and for those of your friends. For example, 'the calendar' will put your blog updates, Twitter messages, Upcoming.org calendar items, and Flickr photos on your calendar, as well as those from your friends. Facebook integration is coming soon." .... from a socail networking calendar
"For example, it puts appointments on the calendar but other items (such as RSS feeds and Flickr updates) show up only when your mouse hovers over the dates the items are associated with. That keeps your calendar from becoming a visual assault"
"People are going to need services that aggregate personal data the same way RSS readers aggregate blogs and news stories."
--- just some ideas for Future.IP.Calendar.... :cool:
+1 on comments and reviews. Looks like some nice upgrades and I'd also be interested in any new sample templates, blocks, etc that use data from IP.Board, IP.Gallery, IP.Blog. It will help out us copy/paster-coders. :D
+1 would be helpful for clents that want to have sections of content that they can edit themselves. Wiki-style editing would be cool to in order for users to colaborate on topics and create articles or content as a group. Could be as intuative as when a user who has edit permissions come accross a page with content a simple edit button is displayed and the user can use the WYSIWYG editor to change or add content. Sort of an IP.wordpress app....
