    If you find a way, let us know :)
  2. Jinkler added a post in a topic: IP.Content is little complicated and not friendly using   

    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.


    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.
  6. Jinkler added a post in a topic: Tutorials for IP.Content?   

    Does this tutorial still exist? I tried looking for it a while ago but couldn't find it.
  7. Jinkler added a post in a topic: Client Centre - Please add Community Name to the list of Paid Invoices!   

    Yes please, I keep meaning to mention this myself.
  8. Jinkler added a post in a topic: Suggestion - Resize article image functionality   

    Never mind, fixed, was a folder permission issue :)
  9. 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?
  10. Jinkler added a post in a topic: Be more like Facebook chat   

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


  11. Jinkler added a comment on a blog entry: 4.0 - Introducing the new AdminCP   

    ACP on your mobile, very handy :)
  12. Jinkler added a post in a topic: European Union cookie law. Yes another topic!   

    So you've been to North Korea then? :D
  13. Jinkler added a post in a topic: Linking Multiple Boards' Member Profiles/Post Counts   

    Out of the box, no. It's a commonly requested feature though. A couple of people say they have managed it in a test environment, but that's about it.

    When is Cleancut going to be updated? Gallery is useless until the skin is updated.

      Don't know how Gallery is useless, you have tons of free skins to pick from and the default IPB skin.

    3. AlexJ

      Just remove 'Cleancut' and find some good skin.. It has always been delayed and hence many customers stopped using it. No offense to anyone. I loved that skin... :(

    4. TheRevTastic

      If I had the time I would probably try to keep it updated.

  3. Jinkler

    @ Lyndon - Lyndon - no there isn't (no idea why your status update was locked). If you do find a solution, let me know! I'm after the same thing, without having to use Nexus.

    1. Trix

      It was probably locked because i believe IPB don't like support questions/requests in the status updates. I've seen them say this in others.

    2. Lyndon

      I'd post a support topic but I don't have an active license. Someone did mention an app but I could never find one.

    3. Jinkler

      AFAIK - one doesn't exist. I've looked extensively.
