  1. Bill Edwards added a post in a topic: Package Expiry   

    I've spoken to Technical Support and there is no way to set an expiry on a package unless you set a renewal. I have a need to set a one off subscription package not to be renewed, but cant!

    Please consider the ability to set the expiry of the package!!

    Many Thanks

    I can't afford or justify that. Was a nice idea, but clearly there isn't anything available for us at the moment!

    Thanks for your input but my question was about a Facebook style one to one chat facility, not a video application that costs more than the forum itself. $179? Are you serious??

    $179?? I wish you luck, you're gonna need it!!

    Dear All

    I want to add a date field to my database. I know I can use 'Date Entry', but it doesn't store just the date. It also stores the time and is there subject to the timezone offset.

    This only manifested itself after a member had his timezone set wrongly and saw all 350+ database entries a day out :(

    I know I can use a text field and enter dates as 2012-12-31, but it isn't pretty and isn't nearly as professional as a proper date field.

    Oh, if I sound like I know what I am talking about - I only half do - Tech Support have been very helpful, but suggest I ask here.

    As I only half know what I am talking about, simple answers would be very much appreciated :)

    Regards

    Bill

    A sticking point seems to be that I want to be able to regulate it on a group basis, i.e. just allow our Moderators access until tested, then allow perhaps another group of members.

    Cometchat can do this, but only with a more expensive setup and then only by their staff

    It seems like that product might have fitted the bill. However their support isn't good - if its poor pre-sales, I won't risk buying :(

    Hi

    We've tried chat rooms on our site and they don't work for us - unmoderated we get name calling, insulting and childish behaviour. It isn't worth the aggro.

    However, a member has asked if a one to one chat, similar to Facebook is possible within our forum. Is it??

    Cheers

    Bill

    I have a database that displays photographs. I would like a member to add a comment and attach a better/more recent photo, but it doesn't seem to be possible?? If I've read this topic correctly that is what Mr Hood is asking for??

    Could you help with how please?



    The buttons are in a very user unfriendly place :(
  12. Bill Edwards added a post in a topic: Image Resizing   

    Not wishing to be agumentative, but I ask if I am getting feedback, you say we don't always have time - clearly in this case you DO have time (two of you have answered!), but neither will comment on the merits of my suggestion?

    This is, in my opinion, a massive gap in your software. Lots of people think so. I am actively looking at other software packages with more versatility and no one can give ANY indication as to weather the suggestion has merits?

    I'm disappointed!

    So what happens now in the "IP Board Feedback" forum?

    Does someone from the company:-

    a) acknowledge our request & action it?
    b) acknowledge our request & ignore it?
    c) ignore the post altogether?
    d) none of the above?

    Answers on a postcard.........

    Dear IPS

    A lot of my members access the forum via a mobile connection. We have a lot of images posted. To assist those on slow connections we limit image size to 640x480 in forum topic posts.

    However, a lot of our members don't understand resizing, so we regularly get uploads of 20 lots of 3000x1600 photos.

    PhPBB used to take these photos at upload stage and turn them into 640x480 - BRILLIANT :)

    IPB Doesn't - BOO :(

    I've looked for a hack/mod with no success.

    Please, please, please consider this for a future update. Or can anyone point me in the right direction??

    Many Thanks

    Bill
