I for one am grateful for this hook/mod. I am a code thickie and wouldnt know where to start on creating something like this (and am too lazy to read up on how to do so lol) so I have to rely on people like Duke_ to bring out simple little mods like this. Whilst I fully understand and respect Jombi's opinion, I'm more than happy to pay five bucks for this. :)
I dont know if this is possible or not, but I have a suggestion for a tweak to the "Applications Not Installed" list which appears on the "Other Apps" page.
At the moment, on the right hand side of the screen, there's a sidebar box which lists applications that are not yet installed (shocker!) along with a button for installing the item. It would be great if there could also be a button (or buttons) to allow us to remove that Applications files from the server and/or remove that entry from the list.
I'm not very technically proficient and I don't make a habit of writing down the files I upload to my server with each mod, so I've no idea what files I need to delete for each mod in that list to make sure they are deleted accordingly. Hence having a delete files and/or delete entry button would be fab.
That's my suggestion anyways. I hope it's useful to you. :)
Id been looking for something similar for quite a while, and only last week I made myself a little profile block for admins to make notes in but this is far superior and I've gladly bought it. I love the fact that all group members are/can be notified of the comment being left behind so the main forum admins can keep a check on what is being said by their subordinates.
Excellent work Adriano - yet again. I've lost count of the number add ons I've bought from you now, but keep up the great work! :D
Ryan, you've created yet another fantastic mod. I've been "saving" up for this for a while, no financially, but time wise. I wanted to make sure I had a day to dedicate to the process and in the end I had all the posts on my board tagged and pre-fixed in an hour! It's been a pleasure to use and it's nice to see the tag cloud on my board actually have some tag-words in it! lol
My forums has over 3000 members registered and 80,000+ posts. The Auto Tag & Prefix mod just streaked through them and tagged everything with about 90% accuracy which I was really pleased with, as I had a feeling it might be a lot less accurate than that (hence my leaving a lot of time to correct any inaccuracies over the 80k posts).
So thanks once again for another cracking mod. Easy Pages was great. Mod Notifications was fab. Adv Tags & Prefixes is brilliant.
I have a small suggestion I'd like to make for any future versions of the fab IP.board application.
There are quite a few add-ons/mods installed on my forums (albeit mostly small ones) but they all seem to have their own setup and settings sections under "Other Apps" - so much so that the "other apps" pop up menu on my admin panel is now longer than the screen. At the moment going full screen is helping me bypass the problem, but it would be great if the pink popup menu itself could be scrollable, or goes to two columns if it hits the bottom of the screen. (Unless Im missing something in the options that actually solves this problem already - in which case, whoops, my bad!)
Thanks for listening. I hope I've not repeated other peoples request. Apologies if I have.
I got it free, but I agree, it's well worth $10 and shall be donating after I've sent this review.
This mod gives your boring old forum front page a fantastic face lift (no pun intended, honest, hehe) and gives you an opening page which I'm confident will boost registrations to my forums (and I'll be checking the admin registration graph like a hawk to see if this is true! :D)
Ibragim, if you need another "demo" site to show off your wonderful mod I'm happy to provide screenshots of my forum front page, or the URL.
All I can say is this: if you have an IP.board forum then you NEED this mod!
Now... where's that donation button.... ah! There it is! *click*
I run a medical-based support community. The IP.suite reputation system is a great way for us to measure the support ability of members. By restricting the reputation to support-only forums, rather than also in all the off-topic open chat forums, we get a good idea of which members are most useful/supportive to our community members. However, the "like" button appearing in the photo gallery (another popular part of our community) is totally ruining that idea for us as people see the like button on photos and when they see cute puppies the like button gets spammed.
So, in a future update of gallery I'd love to see the ability to disable reputation in it (Ive searched the current software and have not found a way to do this, apologies if I have missed it and am stating something incorrect).
It would be also great if the IP.board could allow us to specify which forums we want reputation active in via it's native code, rather than us having to rely on a 3rd party mod to do the job for us - one which sadly does not stretch to include the gallery.
Anyways, thats my suggestions. I hope they are useful. I know I've made the forums rep suggestion before, but the gallery side of it is a new suggestion. :D
I love this mod and v2 is a huge jump in functionality over v1. I've only had it running on a test forums so far as I was waiting for IPB3.3 before installing it on my live forums, but now that is out, and SGv2 is so close to being done, I'm going to wait for the release of v2 "proper". I cant wait to see it on my community as I think it's something they are really going to take an interest in and enjoy.
