    Haaa finally able to change my header to something more epic

  2. Christophe added a post in a topic: Mandrill integration question   

    I haven t looked at the details yet but it seems there is integration with Mandrill available so here is my question
    I have a client with about 20.000 subs managed by IPB and usually we sync it with a local mailing app when we want to send emails. Sync are done per event and filtered by custom fields like fodd preferences or age
    If I want to use the mandrill plugin and I have a custom field for lets say food preferences, can I sync all members with the custom field "Food=Pizza" for example and then mail all these people from Mandrill? I m asking because I need a new third party emailing system that s affordable
    EDIT: Not sure if I explained well, basically I need to sync certain subscribers to mandrill with each new mailing...can this be done?

    Wait...I STILL can t change my banner header on my profile? is it also still broken in RC4?

    Its already tomorrow somewhere...
  6. Christophe added a post in a topic: Where is the members list ?   

    I didnt read 8 pages of comments because I am pretty confident that a custom page can be made in "pages" to make any special display of members anyway you want...right?
  7. Christophe added a post in a topic: Can t seem to find how to change color of icons on top bar   

    I found out where the custom css is
    you have to edit the html/css directly without the designer mode then look for custom css and then I pasted what I needed there...much quicker
    thanks
    EDIT: thanks for the !important note
  8. Christophe added a post in a topic: Can t seem to find how to change color of icons on top bar   

    I duplicated the skin and started replacing everything I saw FFFFFF with diffrent colors to mess around in the editor
    I can t seem to find how to change the colors of the Notification icon links
    #elUserNav > li > a {
        font-size: 13px;
        color: #000000;
    }
    For example
    A great way would be to have access to a custom.css that would be loaded last so that you would be able to add quick css
    Anyway, does anybody know where you can set the links colors in the top bar (create, notification, messages, profile link etc...) only asking because I am going to have a white top background and I can t find how to change those colors.
    Thanks in advance
  9. Christophe added a post in a topic: Error codes explanation or listing   

    I couldn t find a list of error codes in the knowledgebase
    Will those only be internal only or are we getting a list of them and what do they pertain to so we can attempt to find the errors?

  12. Christophe added a post in a topic: How do members delete their accounts?   

    ​I responded to a broad statement by pointing out that statement was wrong and false in the case of Facebook.
    There is no need to tell me that I " shows a lack of understanding on the subject. " when it seems you did not read what I said. In the case of Facebook I recommend you read FB's terms of service.
    When you create accounts on those sites, you release your rights and give a perpetual license to those sites to use the content and the data from your usage of the sites. This is exactly why there have been constant and serious privacy issues regarding Facebook and their usage of people's photos associated with their face recognition technology coupled with their behaviors on the site and content posted. And I am not even talking about ads where users profiles photos are used to promote products from third parties where "John Smith from Alabama likes Pepsi so should you" little banner ads.
    " You do not give them automatic ownership of your content. " I said you give a perpetual license to that content for them to use in any form they wish. By giving them a license you can not claim "all rights reserved" anymore. Look, the point I was making is that people should not post anything they don t want to lose control over the content about. Don t post personal pictures on a site where the site may reuse those images. Don't post excerpts from your novel on your friends wall if you want to keep that story plot private until your book is out. The point is be aware of privacy issues and what you do on those sites.
    Anyway...I am not English so you have to pardon the phrasing

    ​lol this is 100% not the case with commercial sites for obvious reasons. Take Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest and the like for example. As you create your account you release ALL rights of absolutely everything you post from text to images to behavior to clicks...everything. That way you can not sue for infringement of © when it is you yourself posting the content. Yes...all the photos you posted on Facebook mean you granted FB a perpetuity license to use them in anyway they want. Anyway, the TOS of the site should cover the issue of content posting. Take Youtube, the content is still © the member but by uploading video you also agree to allow other users to re-use your video/content. This is why you can t DMCA people for tearing down something stupid you may have said in a video
    Anyway, thanks Adriano for that mod
  14. Christophe added a post in a topic: How do members delete their accounts?   

    ​Well I think a solution would be that you do not delete the topics but instead replace the name with a generic or "deleted account" username. That way the contents are still there.
    If the member want to delete his/her posts they still can do that which will still then bring the issues you mentioned but those are fine if the person does it post by post.
    My point was to save the admins from having to delete accounts every day (when you have 100.000+s members there are always people wanting their account deleted) and that takes time...but you bring good points about some topics missing replies. I have seen big boards leave the posts but only remove the account and if people click on the account they get a 404 or a generic deleted message

    ​Thank you so much
    As a sidenote I wanted to hear what people were thinking about this? Why should you not allow members to delete their accounts?
    Besides the marketing reasons and the need for retention etc...
