  1. HeadStand added a post in a topic: Introducing ForumMob! - White label mobile apps for IPB   

    Well, it's geared specifically toward IPB, as opposed to IPB AND vBulletin AND xenforo and a whole bunch of other platforms. That means that it's designed with the IPB forum admin (and user) in mind. We've also done our best to keep 3rd-party hooks intact, and we've also implemented various hook points so that other contributors can work with our API (although it should be noted that they would only be able to affect the data going back and forth and would not be able to actually change anything on the app itself).
    Additionally, as mentioned previously, we intend to support all of the IPS applications, whereas Tapatalk only supports the forums.

    ​We haven't finalized pricing for that, but most likely yes. It will be minimal, though.

    ​Yes, we intend to support all IPS apps, although we will not begin work on that until we are fully released, AND we support v4.

    ​It's the same pricing as Tapatalk, which makes it market value.
    Yes.No. The only data that gets sent to us your license key (for validation). Also, if the app crashes with some unknown error, we send ourselves the stack trace so we can troubleshoot. But that only includes technical mumbo-jumbo and nothing personal about your server or users.Push notifications are still in development, but they will be in place when we release to the public.No more of a strain than someone using the desktop version. (Note: this does not relate to push notifications. We haven't finished implementing them and therefore I can't give you a concrete answer on that yet.)It's the API that allows your mobile app to talk to your IPB installation. It's a regular IPB application, just like anything you would get off the marketplace. It will be encoded.

    I have never once received email notifications about a new PM. I only get notified of replies to existing ones. I reported that a month ago.

    [4.0.4] Nav Items not highlighting properly
    I've set up a menu through the Pages app.
    When "Type" is set to "URL", the tab is never highlighted when I actually click on it.
    It appears that \IPS\cms\extensions\core\FrontNavigation\Cms only handles the active property when you are inside the Pages app. Any menu item that points to another location is always false.

    ​We are still not officially released, although we are taking customers. I'll PM you shortly.

    [4.0.2] New plugin version does not properly update templates
    Uploaded a new version of a plugin to a server. The server was not in dev and was not in Designer's Mode.
    After the upload, the plugin was properly updated, but the associated HTML templates were not. I checked in the ACP, and the templates had an "M" (for modified) next to them, even though no manual changes were made.
    I had to hit "Revert" in order to force the correct version to load.

    Yay! In which version can we expect this fix? .3 or .4?
  12. HeadStand added a comment: [4.0.1] Plugin templates not updated in Designers Mode   

    Update: same issue with applications. When I install a custom app on a site with Designers Mode enabled, the new templates are not written to disk.

    [4.0.1] Plugin templates not updated in Designers Mode
    Put community in Designers ModeInstall a plugin that includes templates. Templates will be written to themes/#/html/core/global/pluginsInstall new version of plugin with template changes. Templates created in step #2 will not be updated.The only way (that I can see) to pick up the new changes is to disable Designers Mode and sync the files, reinstall the plugin, then re-enable Designers Mode.

  15. HeadStand added a post in a topic: Are web forums in general on the way out?   

    I (and a couple of other people) have been working on an alternative. (http://community.invisionpower.com/topic/409475-introducing-forummob-white-label-mobile-apps-for-ipb/). Tapatalk has gone down the tubes, Forum Runner has become so awful, it's barely even an option anymore. The goal here is to provide a GOOD mobile experience for those who need it.
    I'm not looking to derail this topic, though, so my personal thoughts on this subject.... I don't have my own forums (although I used to, back in the day), but I do have quite a few clients with active communities. I believe that more than just being a niche forum, you need to offer something more than just discussions. Blogs/Articles are good and important, but not enough. Custom development really is one of the things that can make a site successful, if done properly. You need to think about what your community is about, and then build something your members NEED. A good example (shameless plug) - http://bariatricpal.com/. This is a community for people who have or are considering undergoing weight loss surgery. The site has a directory of all bariatric surgeons in the country, complete with reviews by actual patients (who are members of the community), and a LOT of information for each surgeon. And that's just one example of the features that are available here. I have worked with the owner of this site for 4 years now, and I can tell you that there is a lot of time and effort and thought invested into what the members of the community need and appreciate. Yes, there are some features that are created "because they're cool" but for the most part, it's not just a collection of every mod in the marketplace. The goal of this site is to be THE place to go for information, help, and support for everything related to bariatric surgery, and it works. 
    This is a big difference between a successful community and a Facebook group. If all you offer is a place to chat and share your thoughts, then Facebook will beat you every time. Growing a community means making an investment - in your time, and in development of features that will make you unique and give your members a reason to come back.
