  1. Interferon added a post in a topic: IP.Content is little complicated and not friendly using   

    IP.Content is great for pages and records, but is nothing close to a usable wiki.
    No name-based links means hyperlinks are just too painful to bother adding. The category/record organization is very inflexible and not useful for most applications.
    My users just won't use it, and keep asking for MediaWiki. Unfortunately, the guy who wrote a bridge disappears every 6 months, so good luck with support for that.,
  2. Interferon added a post in a topic: Show pre-coupon subtotal   

    When purchasing multiple products and using a coupon, if you show a bigger price and then a smaller price, it makes the smaller price look like a real bargain. In the example below, if the subtotal $2997 were shown, it would make the final price of $1498.50 seem like less.



    Here's an example:

  3. Interferon added a comment on a blog entry: Mobile Apps Status   

    As a mobile developer myself, I think native > web app. Facebook recently came out and said they made a mistake using HTML5 for their mobile app, and are working on a native app. Web apps are slow and can't match the user experience of web apps.

    Personally, I would like a well-defined Internet API so that I can implement my own native app for mobile. You guys are not software developers, you are PHP scripters. Just give us the API and let the software developers make the native apps.
  4. Interferon added a comment on a blog entry: IP.Board 3.4 Dev Update: Bulk Mail with Mandrill   

    I would like to be able to have pre-made emails set up that go out to a user at set intervals after they create their account, and when changing to a certain user group. I would have it set up so one week after ordering our product (and getting moved into the user group for paid customers) they receive an email reminding them of cool product benefits, etc., to minimize post-purchase dissonance. Another one would go out after six weeks to make sure we keep them as a customer.
  5. Interferon added a post in a topic: Bring back database callbacks   

    I am satisfied with this solution. Thank you.
  6. Interferon added a post in a topic: Bring back database callbacks   

    Please add database callbacks back in the next update of IP.Content. We had some stable reliable code we use that runs on this. With it removed, we now have to find and hire a programmer to rewrite our old code, and we're out an extra $500-$1000 (plus the time spent recruiting, reviewing, and testing) just because IPS decided this wasn't the "right" way to do things.

    This code no longer appears to work with IPB 3.3.3. Not sure why.

  10. Interferon added a post in a topic: I disabled our gallery upon upgrading to IPB 3.2   

    Since there is no reply to this, I am going to commence with hiring someone to transfer all our member gallery images into a custom database, and we will create our own gallery application. This is terrible.
  11. Interferon added a comment on a blog entry: IP.Content 2.3 Dev Update: Nexus Blocks   

    Here's an idea: a wish list for each user, including IP.Downloads items.

    Steam has this:
    http://s567.photobucket.com/albums/ss111/chercabula/Pics%20for%20Blogposts/December%202011/?action=view&current=steam-daily-wishlist-giveaway-001.png

    A lot of people end up buying each other games, especially around Christmas.
  12. Interferon added a post in a topic: IP.Gallery 4.x - Feature request - Youtube, Vimeo, Dailymotion...   

    This is a terrible idea. You should create a custom database for YouTube video IDs like I did, or IPB should create an IP.Videos product. The gallery needs fewer features, not more.
  13. Interferon added a post in a topic: IPB 3.2 feels much faster   

    Is it faster? It feels like all the pages are loading much much faster than the previous version.
  14. Interferon added a post in a topic: I disabled our gallery upon upgrading to IPB 3.2   

    This is so bad, I won't even let this out on our site. I'm looking into migrating all our gallery images into a custom database. IPB 3.2 is a very good upgrade, but what the hell happened with the Gallery?

    This is literally all you have to do. If the user has gallery categories, just display the most recent image in each category, like the old gallery did:


    Instead, what you have is so complicated, I'm not even going to unleash it on my users, because I can't even understand what's going on, and I'm a programmer.

    I didn't even know this existed. That's pretty useful.

Status Feed



  1. Interferon

    Does anyone know how to tell if a sale has a commission (came from a referral link)? I don't actually know if referrals are working or not.

    1. Olivier Turbis

      hi

  2. Interferon

    Anyone know how to output RFC-822 format in a feed block? If I figure this out I can show you how to make a feed for all recent activity on your site.

  3. Interferon

    Only the latest Gallery 4.x is shown in the client area. Where can I download the last version of 3.x.x??

    1. TheRevTastic

      Ask in a support ticket.

    2. Interferon

      Done.

  4. Interferon

    Where can I download the last version of IP.Gallery 3.x.x?

    1. media

      Stable version: in Client area... But if you are looking for pre-release-testin 4.0.3 beta1 testing here it goes: http://community.invisionpower.com/topic/336207-ipgallery-403-beta-1/

    2. Interferon

      Only the latest 4.x is shown. Where can I download older versions?

    3. media

      I do not think you can find this right now... Client section used to have previous version but not anymore... Contact IPS.... :)

  5. Interferon

    When is IPB 3.2 coming out? A month from now? A year from now?

    2. Connor T

      tomorrow

    3. Gerry 5039

      The famous IPB saying "When it's ready" lol

    4. CDMS

      At this rate (referring to the continuous blog entries) I'd guess probably around a month, maybe two?

  6. Interferon

    Is it possible to have page folders appear in the breadcrumb nav links?

    1. Mat B

      Status updates are not a support channel. Please post in the appropriate areas or log a ticket.

  7. Interferon

    Anyone else have trouble with SSL + paid downloads?

  8. Interferon

    How do I change "Downloads" to "Marketplace" like this site has done? There are a ton of language items called "Downloads". Which one is the title that gets shown in the tab and breadcrumb links?

    1. Michael

      You should just need to change the Public Title value for the app in the Manage Applications & Modules page.

    2. Interferon

      Nice! What about the title in the breadcrumb nav links at the top?

  9. B_U_R_I » Interferon

    Check you PM :)

  10. Interferon

    Where do I post a tutorial for a content block?

    1. Planetby

      http://community.invisionpower.com/resources/articles.html in there m8

  11. Interferon

    I was right. print_r() no longer works in a block: http://bit.ly/hwHxOp

    1. .Peter

      Thats really weird.. I don't see why they would disable the print_r feature.

  12. Interferon

    Does print_r() no longer work?

    1. .Peter

      Yes?

    2. Alex

      It will only output something if the variable you pass to it as actually an array or object. If it's a string for example, nothing will be shown.

  13. Interferon

    Ten new spam members every day. reCAPTCHA is enabled. What to do? It's embarrassing when my newest member is always "GetQuickRatesNow" or "LoseWeightFast37".

    1. NiftyWolfie

      add a question and answer to your registration

    2. Alex K.

      Have you also enabled the Spam Monitor Service?

    3. Zhana

      admin approval of new registrations.

  14. Interferon

    Has anyone successfully added the new status updates plugin block to a page? When I add it, nothing appears.

    1. VioAdmin

      Try to clean your skin cache/rebuild skin(especially where it says replacements) It should then show up.

      Of course, I assume you activated the plugin after installation. PM me or open up a topic and I/others will assist if it still doesn't show.

  15. Interferon

    IPB has too many features sometimes. It can be chaotic when there are multiple ways of doing the same thing.

    2. VioAdmin

      Hmm, can you give us some examples?

    3. Ocean West

      would be nice if ALL a mods/app features and functions hooks (settings) are self contained and you don't have to visit different areas.

    I can make a set of wiki-like database template if I can figure out how to access records in a category template: http://community.invisionpower.com/topic/325287-trying-to-display-all-record-in-the-category-template

  17. Interferon

    How can you recursively display records and subcategories in a database template?: http://community.invisionpower.com/topic/325287-trying-to-display-all-record-in-the-category-template

      ouch

    3. Interferon

      I know how to fix it, but I can't log into the admin account to make the fix.

    4. Alex K.

      -> support ticket if you haven't already.

      I got it so I don't know what you talk about.
