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)
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.
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a lot easier for the customer trying to navigate these forums and pages that are very scattered around and frequently outdated.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.
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.
Feel free to take a look around the IPB Demo. http://www.invisionpower.com/suite/demo.php
You can take a look at how the Admin portion works with IPB.
You will be able to figure it out very quickly. Everything is pretty organized and you can set everything up with minimal effort.
Best of luck :) If you get stumped join the chat room within a few minutes normally a few others will join and normally very helpful.
It would be a nice feature to have an easy logo maker, similar to how the skin generator works. Type a site name, and maybe upload a small picture, to have a logo made. Thanks for your time.
These two features could possibly be combined.
Why is this documentation limited to developers? So Are there documents/guides I'm missing because I'm not a "developer"? What does it take to get access to this info? I don't release stuff to the community yet because I'm trying to learn it first.
works for me, click options, edit title. (allows you to edit title and description)
This is under group permissions, choose user group, then change gallery permissions, select, Can edit own images and comments?
If you make them a gallery mod, they can move images, using the setting
Can moderate albums?
Group can view private albums, move, edit, delete, approve, and unapprove images in albums
