    Just one word will do, got some issues I need to test out. Thanks!

    If you find a way, let us know :)

    IP.Content is a massive uphill learning curve. I've been there, and struggled up the hill. Luckily at the time I had plenty of time to learn. Now that I know what it can do, it is bloody powerful.

    EG:

    It runs my homepage: http://www.talkford.com/page/index.html

    It runs my car reviews: http://www.talkford.com/page/ford_reviews/_/ford-mondeo-reviews/mondeo-mk3/

    It runs my wiki (still being built - but a wiki CAN be done via IP.Content quite easily): http://www.talkford.com/page/fordwiki/fordwiki.html

    It runs my dealership reviews: http://www.talkford.com/page/Dealership%20Reviews/_/east-anglia-ford-dealerships/roy-chapman-limited-berkhamsted-r339

    The biggest problem you'll find, if you're a non-coder like me (i'm a bodger and tinkerer) is actually finding people who are competent enough to create what you want. They are very far and few between, either too busy or too unreliable. A basic database is easy to setup and run, but if you want it customising to make something like my car reviews, that's where it gets a little bit more challenging. Although saying that, after much practise and bodging, it does become quite easy, as the templates are just a mix of HTML and some IPB stuff. The problem being if you're new, is knowing what the IPB stuff is! I've been playing with it for about 3 years now, and I'm still learning stuff every week with it.

    Hmmmm, I could see some really handy uses for this. +1

    Easiest way is to use this hook:

    '?do=embed' frameborder='0' data-embedContent>>

    It over-rides your search engine with a google custom search engine.

    Does this tutorial still exist? I tried looking for it a while ago but couldn't find it.

    Yes please, I keep meaning to mention this myself.

    Never mind, fixed, was a folder permission issue :)
  11. Jinkler added a post in a topic: Suggestion - Resize article image functionality   

    Wish I had come across this topic earlier, have been looking for a solution to this problem for ages!

    Anyway, gone to try this out, and it's not working for me. This is what I'm using:
    <img src="/thumbnails/timthumb.php?src=/uploads/{$record['field_205']}" /> I just get an image not found error.

    Is there something wrong with my code above, or should I be looking elsewhere for the problem?

    Thanks for the link. Members on one of my sites have been requesting something similar. It also integrates with IPB:
