You could just install IPB in a different folder than vB (eg: vB is in /forums and IPB is in /ipb), do the conversion, work on your style & settings, and then either leave IPB in /ipb or move the contents of /ipb to where you really want it to be.
It is what I am currently doing with a vB4 site that I'm using for testing... I have vB & IPB installed in two different sub-folders and I can freely work on the IPB copy without losing my vB files until I'm ready.
with that and I just found out about this files/ folder, I'm going to be busy for a while :ph34r:
btw.. I was told on Twitter that I can get to that files area through the customer resources link in the header, this is what I've always seen clicking that link.
so I never looked deeper :ermm:
is there a way I can sort these mods by paid or free downloads?
It's rather annoying that I finally find a few useful mods and 90% are paid.
I don't have a problem paying for a mod, but I just bought the thanks mod for 10$ and it's a waste of money in its current state.
It's VERY plain, no stats, you don't get an alert when your "thanked"
please say there is a way to sort these mods from paid/free, also do devs not put screenshots or live demos?
This is something I miss with vbulletin, vb.org is a great resource, I only hope IPB has something like this one day.
The IPB modifications area is nothing compared to what vB offers.
I see that the title doesn't change in my gallery
and this finally adds something
what I would like is to...
a. remove the site name from all these pages
b. have all pages with a unique title pulled from the categories, albums and images
