  1. Vikestart added a post in a topic: IP.Pages - custom fields and loop fields   

    Huh? Custom form helpers?
    How complicated would this be to set up? I have decent knowledge of HTML and also a bit PHP.
    This is absolutely necessary if I am to ditch WordPress  Also considering WordPress is free while IPS is a paid platform.

    ​Ah, I see.... Well, that's kind of a deal breaker for me. I need to be able to select 1 category and at least 4 subcategories.
    Why? So the post can appear in several category listings where it's relevant, and can aslo be accessed with different URLs (redirected to the main one), since there are multiple logical options.

    I know I have another thread about repeater fields (mutli-row), but this will be a list of smaller, but important features that I want to know if can be done with IP.Content in IPS4 or not
    I am currently using both WordPress (with addons) and IPB on my website, but I'd like to step away from WordPress and only use IPS4 if the features below are available somehow.
    This is about the upcoming IP.Pages in IPS4 !
     
    1) Can you manipulate the permalink of pages? To what extent? (such as http://www.website.com/category/subcategory/post_permalink/  ? )
    2) Can you selected multiple categories for a page, and even nested categories?
    3) Can you (or is it at all possible) to modify the editor, to add custom buttons that insert custom predefined HTML?
    4) Is there a review system in place so that you can choose to review your staff's submssions prior to them being published?
    5) Is there support for category pages where you can list the posts from that category on the frond end?
    6) Can you hide and show fields based on which category has been selected?
     
    Thanks

    What @bfarber described might be what I'm looking for, but I need a clear confirmation. I will try to explain it more clearly, sorry.
    Yeah, I mean a loop-field where you can add as many rows as you need (obviously I would define a max limit) 
    To make lists.
    I would predefine the fields (item, description, image), then the editors can add rows and fill them out, and then this information will be output on the front end with all the rows.
    Example of repeater field from WordPress:

    Is that what you meant? Is that possible?

    Will IP.Pages in IPS Community Suite 4 support custom fields, and more specifically looped fields?
    By looped fields, or repeater fields, I mean lists with data where you can add a bunch of rows and print it on the page with a while loop.
  6. Vikestart added a post in a topic: Putting signature box on "Edit Profile" page   

    It does make sense though as the signature does not appear on your profile, but is rather just something account wide
    But yeah, I guess most people would look for it in "Profile Settings", myself included

    Thanks, I've sent an email
    Where would be a suitable place to ask for help in the community?
     
    I really cannot convert unless I can carry that data over. It's way too much data to lose
  8. Vikestart added a post in a topic: WordPress 4 to IPB   

    My website uses both WordPress and IPB at the moment. WordPress is used for most of the website, for articles and pages, while IPB is the forum.
    I don't really like using 2 such big platforms (IPB has IP.Content) if it's not necessary, and so I've had thoughts about converting the WordPress posts and pages to IP.Content in IPB.
     
    However, I have one concern regarding this. A lot of my website is built on Advanced Custom Fields , a plugin for WordPress, to save extra information.
    Is there some way to convert this data as well?

    Skin by: IPBPlanet
    That part is way too visible. It should be in the footer, not in the header, considering it's a paid skin.
     
    Of course, credit should be given where credit is due, but with a paid skin, the copyright notice should not attract that much attention.
  10. Vikestart added a comment on a blog entry: Corex Responsive Skin Presentation   

    It's a really nice skin, but the location of the copyright notice is waaayyy to intrusive. That is a game breaker on my part. It should be in the footer, not at the top.

    Very excited for this release :D
  12. Vikestart added a comment: Not using "remember me" and multiple users from same IP   

    Not sure if related, but if I go my IPB forum in a different browser than the one I'm logged into, I am logged out in the other browser window. Sometimes it logs me in as a user I had previously logged in as (to test permissions). Weird stuff.
  13. Vikestart added a comment on a file: Topic Template System   

    Really nice! :) But it would be nicer if you could have the option to hide certain default feilds like Topic Title and the Post Field so that they could only write in the fields.
  14. Vikestart added a post in a topic: Avatar and Profile pic should be separate in 3.2   

    Avatars are supposed to represent you and be a "recognition". Personal photos can easily be added in the gallery.
  15. Vikestart added a post in a topic: IP.Content quesiton   



    Possible without blocks? As for me, I just want to pull certain information from IP.Board to my site, not any template at all. No blocks. I want to import user avatar, "You have X new messages", sign out link, account management link etc. Just plain info and links.
