    Editing topic through warning
    Not sure why, but when I posted a topic, then edited the topic title immediately, it through this warning on a white screen:[code=auto:0] Warning: Illegal string offset 'edit_topic' in /var/www/html/admin/applications/forums/sources/classes/post/classPost.php on line 2239[/code]
    Thought it was worth noting?

    4 Ways to Kickstart your Website this Summer
    1). Make your Articles Beautiful to Read, not Dull.
    Create short and catchy headlines. Always write your own unique content. Never directly copy from someone else and claim it as your own. Include images that are of high quality. Make sure they are relevant and interesting to your content. Finally, feature your most popular/best/recent articles by incorporating a slider into your website.

    IPC Slider has impressed and delivered to well over 100+ clients, rising to one of the most popular hooks for a good reason: It makes you and your Articles look fantastic!

    2). Change up your theme and make a homepage with Content .

    No-one will wants to see the same 'out of the box' design. Purchase a theme that you think will most suit your community. Consider "Responsive themes" or "Responsive Hooks" to accommodate your mobile/tablet audience. Create a homepage with Content, and utilise Content Layouts to design an effortless page.

    Content Layouts will allow you to create the perfect homepage without touching a line of code. Simple yet effective settings to create a three, two, or single column layout in one page only. Its an ideal hook for someone wanting to create an easy, no hassle page.

    3). Transform those Bad Topic Titles into a Clickthrough
    On almost any site you will see a 'Recent something' panel. Unless your community are a bunch of copywriters the chances are your Topic Titles are never quite as good as you would like them to be. Could it be effecting how your visitors view and engage with the rest of your site? Create a new way of making your Topics more engaging by including images of the topic within the sidebar.

    Recent Topics is the perfect solution for any IP Content powered site wanting to feature a list of Recent Topics, with attachments. (It also integrates with the IP Board sidebar)

    4). Feature those all important Topics, not just Articles!
    Featuring Topics with a Slider was almost unheard of in the IPS community until recently. The newest addition to the IPC Slider family, is Topic Slider. Set a bunch of parameters, and watch your community topics fly into a slider with images, without lifting a finger.

    "Followed by", has profile urls when viewing as guest, yet profile URL's are not linked in the download listing or detail pages.

    Pre selected category wipes description/download data.
    Latest version that is used here in the IPS marketplace.
    Just experienced what I think is a bug:
    [*]Was in the look and feel category, clicked upload file.
    [*]Entered all of my download data, including the upload of images, and entering of descriptions etc.
    [*]Realised it was the wrong category, clicked change category - updated it.
    [*]Clicked continue, to find nothing had saved.
    Really annoying!

    Export block - block_cache_output still exists?
    Just curious to see if this was intended or not actually. I don't see why it should be left in if its being exported?  I have to clear the cache manually when submitting blocks to the market.

    Content layouts will allow you to set a multiple layouts for your page, including three, two, or single column, and being able to set their sizes, all with the click of a few settings.  That certainly isn't shipped with IP Content 2 as default. ;)

    Featured download - description cut off
    If you resize your browser to half the size whilst in the marketplace, featured files with particularly long descriptions will fall to the next line, and that line of text ends up getting cutting in half. 
    Think it just needs an extra 10px (110px to 120px) [code=auto:0] #featured_pane .featured_file_panel { height: 120px; }[/code]

    Just noticed some strange accounts viewing my [url=""]profile[/url]
    Particularly these, as they all have numbers for a web/aim field.  Seems they've bypassed spam protection.

    Your add-on the slides not move on their own? And would I need IP Content to use this. What i am looking for is a add-on that allows me to showcase threads and what not on my forum that are popular.

    1. Grant B

      Slides move on their own. Showcasing threads isn't possible with IPC Slider, its purely for IP Content. Topic slider that will be releasing soon will accommodate this however.

    2. Dorian Gray

      oh okay thank you! I will keep my eye open for topic slider!
