    Wow, lots of great information and an awesome post to cover it all!

    Man that was genius!
  2. ApertureForums added a post in a topic: Considering purchase   

    IPB is just better all around, how about speed, performance, and even though you handle security with a few extra measures in place, IPB is secure as they come. Not to mention the fast bug fixes, and if security holes are found they get patched almost as soon as they're found.
  3. ApertureForums added a post in a topic: Login page full of errors   

    When trying to "sign in" here at IPB the login page is littered with a few errors

    Warning : in_array() [ function.in-array ]: Wrong datatype for second argument in /home/forumsi/public_html/admin/sources/classes/output/publicOutput.php(1380) : eval()'d code on line 58

    the blogs logo looks absolutely horrible.
  5. ApertureForums added a post in a topic: 3.0.3 - Please make IPB 3 more lighter and faster   

    why not upgrade to a VPS?

    Expecting to run any forum software on shared hosting once it hits over 20 users online at a time is really pushing it. Especially these days the way hosting companies oversell and the features that most modern forum solutions offer.

    Software development shouldn't be retarded due to limitations of a host.
  6. ApertureForums added a post in a topic: Integration of WordPress to IP.Board 3   

    Depends on how far you want the integration to go. If its just a basic, sharing users than yes. If you want one thats more complex that can share posts/replies then I dont think there is
  7. ApertureForums added a post in a topic: Problem with install   

    You can try to reupload the files, particularly the one that is named in the error message.

    does your FTP program offer a log of incomplete transfers that may occur?
  8. ApertureForums added a post in a topic: MediaWiki to CCS?   

    Yea, but converting 2000 pages would take forever! And i doubt CCS will ever have the ability/option for users to modify/post/edit content on CCS pages, I just don't think it was the intended (or unintended) scope of the program.
  9. ApertureForums added a post in a topic: 6 Quick Suggestions for future CCS versions   

    These features would help transform CCS into a full fledge CMS system that couldn't be beat. Its already a great product and easy to use but hopefully with a few minor additions it can become even better.

    1. Better integration of uploads/media. Making this like the default attachments that is in every post would be fantastic. Having to go to a separate page, to upload CCS media is troublesome most of the time and just adds extra steps.

    2. Enable use of the lightbox, with the said attachments from above. I use a fixed width style (and sure many others do to) but love posting large detailed images for everyone to see, but the lightbox for some reason, won't work from CCS pages (using IPB wrapper as to include javascript for it). Or at least it doesn't work in an easy, time efficient manner.

    3. Posting pages to a forum. Whenever a new CCS page is created, it should be able to get posted to a specified forum. The ability to post each article to a different forum would be awesome, but to start with, having them all posted to one forum would be grand as well. Of course, having it so its just a snippet of the article (say first 500 characters) would be outstanding!

    4. Better integration with the forums. Having the CCS pages open for comments where a user can comment on the article (conversely if a forum thread is created from above suggestion and a user replies to that it shows up in the article as well).

    5. And last, an option to send a thread to CCS. Some users post really great threads that are full of information and need better exposure to help promote your community. Having the ability to easily transport a thread from the forums, out into the CCS would make this product really stand out from others.

    6. A navigation module, that listed the categories/folders from your CCS installation (I'd imagine it would have to allow for selection of what folders to display) and then listing the contents of those folders underneath it. IE a user has 4 folders, "assets, Folder 1, Folder B, Folder <3" they could select to show "Folder 1, Folder B and Folder <3" in the navigation module, then the pages they have in each folder.


    Thats all my suggestions for IP.CCS Its a great product and I look forward to future versions ;)
  10. ApertureForums added a post in a topic: IPB 3.0.2 vs VBulletin with VBSEO Installed   

    You'll never get the exact replica of your URL's from vBSEO to any IPB product without countless hours of testing, and help. However there are a few SEO modules for IPB, and so far from what I've seen most IPB templates are more SEO friendly to begin with.

    You're best bet is to make the switch, and setup a 301 redirect from the old URL format into the new format, and all you'll have is a short term hit. (I also made the switch from vB+vBSEO to IPB, and I dont regret it for one second)
  11. ApertureForums added a post in a topic: aMember Professional Membership Software 3.1.6   

    I used aMember with vBulletin and it was awesome then. I haven't used it with IPB but as long as it integrates I wouldn't see why it wouldn't be equally awesome.
  12. ApertureForums added a post in a topic: Something is not working properly here   

    But its more settings to screw with. I made the switch from vBulletin in part because of the ease of use of IPB. When you start adding 3 more options for each setting you'll end up with bloated software, unmanageable code, and a lot of other useless trash (See vBulletin for reference)
  13. ApertureForums added a comment on a blog entry: CCS Pricing   

    How long is this discounted price going to be around?
  14. ApertureForums added a post in a topic: IPB track record.   

    thats from a leaked screen shot my man!

    I'd list it as a good source, but probably not 100% set in stone. (Though, I do expect them to increase the price there :)
  15. ApertureForums added a post in a topic: IPB track record.   

    I dont think Jelsoft has released anything official in regards to pricing yet.

  2. Xtr3me » ApertureForums

    Yeh, Ive seen a good amount of demo sites now and checked out what Calypso is up to for points mods and also gone over to IB pro Arcade who are working on an Arcade version which will work with 3.0 - The battle mod system might also be coming along with the casino, which can be merged with Calypsos points mod and make the forum pretty fun to be on, as I run a gaming community. :)

    You'll love it once you've bought IPB!
