  1. SkimPappa added a comment on a blog entry: 4.0 - Moderation Part 1: Setting up moderators   

     
    You can already do that by making Primary group members, secondary group mod/admin. Then they still show up as a normal member, and not in the moderating team. On forum posts or in profile.

    Thats the problem, the already finished version 5.0, they put all their time in to that and fell behind on 4.0. I don't we are ready yet for what comes out in 5.0. Its compatable with the new apple iWatch, and Apple Glasses, and we don't know about those yet

    You have me all excited waiting on the gallery answer. Its one part of the software I haven't fallen in love with yet....
    Just give me a couple days heads up, so I can renew, and have all that pay delay stuff finish, so that the second the download is available I can click the DOWNLOAD ME NOW!! button, (or better yet an update automatically button in the admin CP)

    I always change them to start on Monday. Starting the week on a Sunday seems odd.
     
     
    PS I look forward to this weeks blog(s) :) :)

    Looks kind of bad on iPad. Forum descriptions squished to the side
  6. SkimPappa added a post in a topic: Documentation?   

    On software this expensive it shouldn't need to be the community making the basic documentation. The problem of not keeping the pdf documentation updated is simply unacceptable. The pdf should be just like most other pdf files with a table of contents by subject. 
     
    Installation Forums Blogs Gallery Chat IP Content Downloads Admin CP Moderation Basic Skinning Basic Hook Creation And subsections for different areas including FAQ in each section. With minor updates you may need to make a couple changes. With major updates, screen shots changed, and descriptions of new features. Best practices section, and optimization guidance. To me this seems like a necessity. Pretty much any time I buy something more complex than a pencil I read all enclosed documentation to make sure I understand the full capabilities. Many could find it useful, and many would find a feature they didn't know about or completely understand and make their lives easier. I made highly customized PDF documentation for new users of different forums I'm administrator on including separate guides for moderators/new admins. This isn't a hard task, and doesn't require enough time to completely disregard the importance of easy documentation.

    Creating and maintaining a PDF version of documentation would be ideal. Possibly 3 different ones for ease of distribution. One for normal members, one for Administrators, and one for programmers/skinners/add-on creators. It sounds like a lot of work, but it would be a heck of a lot easier for the customer trying to navigate these forums and pages that are very scattered around and frequently outdated.

    You can create custom profile entries, and have it viewable to only Admin/Global Mods. These can be things listed on the registration page for the person to enter, or periodically entered by Staff later when they have comments on the user.
  9. SkimPappa added a post in a topic: Search in members   

    You can also if you set a member of a different group, such as a moderator or Administrator, and don't want anyone to see it, you can make the members Primary Group "Members", and secondary group(s) the one you want hidden, such as moderator & supporter. When someone looks at their profile it will only show the primary group, but that member will still have the other permissions.
     
    This should accomplish what you ask.

    Wish we had good documentation in PDF format. Including how to skin and make minor changes. I can't load this site while my ship is out.

    1. Collin S.

      Skim, I'll be focusing hard on updating and cleaning up all of our documentation for 3.2. Please feel free to drop me a PM with some feedback and ideas!

    2. SkimPappa

      Please at least think about making a PDF file :) Screen Shots, brief explanations about exactly what the option changes, and common configuration ideas, & security ideas. I would make one for members, one for moderators, one for admin. It would make things very easy that way.

  2. SkimPappa

    Wish client center downloads made it easy to figure out when the patches have been integrated in the main download files. I would like to know I have the current file on my drive. Maybe a time Stamp? Or 3.1.3b changing after each patch integrated

  3. SkimPappa

    So happy ubuntu/kubuntu/xubuntu/edubuntu 10.10 is out :) Much love for free software!

    1. Shadow82x

      Your 1 day late.

    2. SkimPappa

      I was on duty (24hours at work) sheesh, give me a break :)

    3. Shadow82x

      =P

    4. Amy T

      I prefer absolute linux my self.

      I had a terrible time getting my graphics card to work on ubuntu.

  4. SkimPappa

    So happy the gallery is finally getting updated!

  5. SkimPappa

    I got my halo reach today Yeah walmart :)

    1. Stars25

      You live in the U.S? How did Walmart get away with selling it when it comes out on the 14th?

    2. SkimPappa

      They mailed it to me in the US, pre-order showed up a day early. The invoice said 39.96, and they gave me a $20.00 gift card.(they didn't charge my credit card yet either, bonus)

    3. SkimPappa

      They pretty much paid me $20 bucks to buy it as of right now

    4. Stars25

      that's bull! I pre-ordered from gamestop and I chose to pick it up :(

    5. scottlawson15

      Nice on ladd... check out my gaming site.. were looking for a few reach players www.zerolegit.com/community

    6. Kyanar

      Yeah, most places will send out the day before it's due out so that it will arrive on your doorstep on release day. Sometimes the courier is faster than the day though!

  6. SkimPappa

    I remember

  7. SkimPappa

    I just realized the IPB fan base may be crazier than the Apple fan base. Some crazy dedicated people here!

    1. Collin1000

      You are missing the vital connection = Almost the entire IPB fan base is made up of the Apple fan base. The insanity carries over.

    2. realmaverickuk

      I hate Apple.

    3. Nityananda

      I'll take ur apple and raise u an android LOL

    4. AndyF

      Probably™ :)

    iLife '11: Introducing AppEase. Make an app in a snap.

    1. Lewis P

      Now now, it'll be called iApp. ;P

    2. Fishfish0001

      AppAttack sounds like a good one :)

  9. SkimPappa

    I used to reboot just for WAMP, now I figure out there is a MAMP! Love it!

    1. Graeme Leighfield

      MAMP?

    2. SkimPappa

      www.mamp.info Mac, Apache, MySQL, PHP

    3. SkimPappa

      Allows me to run dev boards on my mac easily.

    4. Fishfish0001

      Late.

    5. SkimPappa

      Must ftp into my localhost, macs don't like to folder merge I guess

    6. Olivier Turbis

      They better be fixing that in the next OSX release. Or I might kill them

    1. Abomination

      Thanks!

  10. SkimPappa

    Where is "archive personal conversations" located

    1. SkimPappa

  11. SkimPappa

    Has the 3.1.2 download been changed at all today with the fixes to bugs as they appear? If so, is where is it noted with last updated time/date.

    1. TrixieTang

      It doesn't work that way. 3.1.2 is 3.1.2, further bug fixes will be in 3.1.3 or will be released as patches.

    2. TCattitude

      Sadly. Incomplete members looks great, but... i cannot access there (bug already reported and, apparently, confirmed)

    3. .Ian

      They usually release a patch if it affects many people before waiting for a new version

    4. sunrisecc

      Time stamps are identical inside the zip - hence no change as yet.

    5. Collin1000

      Patch is here: http://community.invisionpower.com/resources/documentation/index.html/_/knowledge-base/312-validating-registration-php-warning-malformed-merge-center-exports-more-r490

  12. SkimPappa

    Whoa, now i'm a snowman

  13. SkimPappa

    Can't decide on whether or not I would benefit from ip.downloads, or if attaching a file to a post will be good enough. Any thoughts?

    1. Collin1000

      If you need the management features of downloads, such as download limits and bandwidth control, go with downloads. If you just need to attach files, you should be fine without it.

  14. SkimPappa

    Is it done, is it done, is it done :)

  15. SkimPappa

    IP.Nexus & IPB 3.1.2 will not be released until the donation goal is met :)

    1. Wolfie

      Hey, didn't you say you would donate $140? :O Get to donating dude!

    2. SkimPappa

      I wish I had a billion dollars so freakin bad

    3. Glumbo

      NOOO!!!

    4. DarkGizmo

      lol

    5. Robulosity2

      worst song.. ever

  16. SkimPappa

    No recall, free bumpers, you can still return the phone if you don't like it http://www.macworld.com/article/152732/2010/07/iphone4.html?lsrc=rss_main

    1. SkimPappa

      If you don't like it don't buy it. If you did and don't like it return it http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VKIcaejkpD4

    2. SkimPappa

      Proximity sensor software update in the works. Thats all I ever wanted :)

  17. SkimPappa

    The only recall you'll get on your iPhone is from pressing redial.

    1. aeharding

      lol xD

  18. SkimPappa

    iPhone 4 software update is out today, and tomorrow is the iphone press conference. I smell recall? Free bumpers?

    1. AnthonyKinson

      should be interesting, i'm going to enjoy watchin jobs squirm haha

    2. Wolfie

      Free bumpers? You must be thinking of a company that knows good PR...

    3. AnthonyKinson

      there's absolutly no way they are going to be giving away free bumpers. if the issue is absolutly hardware, i think they will offer a fix in apple stores, and the techs at the genius bar will apply it or something. Total product recall i doubt will happen.

    4. alex.1096@yahoo.com

      whats a bumper? o.O

    5. AnthonyKinson

      rubber thing you put on your iPhone to stop damage to steve jobs head when you throw your iPhone 4 back at him :P

    6. alex.1096@yahoo.com

      i see lol thanks

  19. SkimPappa

    iPhone 4 is a revolutionary, magical product. Why? It can make your reception disappear like never before.

  20. SkimPappa » Wolfie

    Birthday today??

  21. SkimPappa

    Dang, no torrent trackers for ipb 3.x

    1. DamianSharpe

      um...

    2. Fishfish0001

      o.O

    3. SkimPappa

      what? I like sharing large home videos between family members. torrents are a very easy way to do this.

    4. Fishfish0001

      Valid point.

    5. ᴡᴅツ

      Yes that's true. It would be nice to have security features embedded so non-members can't gain access.

      Im want this too ._.

  22. alex.1096@yahoo.com » SkimPappa

    What the...bugs almighty over here.

  23. SkimPappa

    What is wrong with search? why can't I search for two words (name & color) in the community downloads section. It only finds words with name.

    1. Collin1000

      Use quotes to make it a single query, or use a plus sign to indicate duplicates.

    2. Collin1000

      nevermind. it looks like something is wrong. it seems like search is putting strings in quotes by default instead of searching each word. best to open a topic.
