This response was unexpected and I was happy to hear this.
But I am stuck with vB4 due to some features of my site and the time required to re-configure eyerything in the way I want.
I was astonished today when I read your blog post here . JUST WOW!!
vB is not listening to anyone at all and here you are thinking of features which cloud be useful and including them. I started this topic only two months ago.How can you be this fast? And that speed limiting feature is more than a great addition.
I just wanted to say that even though I am not using IPB for my site, I have become a BIG fan of IPS. I remember how I compared IPB with vB six years ago and started my site with vB BUT now IPB has left vB FAR behind. I am not a customer of IPS (not yet) BUT I am a member of a lot forums powered by IPB and I like the efforts of everyone at IPS.
May be coming from me (customer of another software) it doesnt mean much BUT I said what I have in my mind. :)
OK. One more query: Is IP,Downloads have following two types of download delay or any one of these as a feature?
Download DELAY based on usergroups - Type 1: This is the time that the user must wait to download another file after his first download.
e.g; some free file hosting sites like rapidshare, etc require free users to wait 10-15 minutes for the download of another file.
Download DELAY based on usergroups - Type 2: This is the time that the user must wait to download the file after clicking on that file's download button.
e.g; some free file hosting sites like rapidshare, etc require free users to wait 60-120 seconds for the download of file.
I have some questions about downloads. There are some features which should be present whenever the word download is mentioned.
Is IPB Attachment System and IP Downloads have following features: Download Resume [like vBulletin Forum Script have in its attachments download system]
Permissions Per Usergroup: Number of downloads per day/week/month/etc [like a vBulletin Addon vBDownloads have in its features]
Permissions Per Usergroup: Download size limit per day/week/month/etc (e.g; 800MB Per Day) [like a vBulletin Addon vBDownloads have in its features]
These features should be present because I dont want a user to overload my server by tying to download all of my forum attachments within a day.
Oh! Sorry, IPB3.1.4 also have it. Its just that I am NOT familiar with IPB admin-panel since I was using vB for many years. I am going to move my sites from vB to XF or IPB. I just cant decide between them as both are excellent.
From your post it seems possible BUT I am still unable to figure-out how you have added it. I dont know where to upload media; I tried gallery option but it requires to create a album while you dont have any album (http://community.invisionpower.com/user/146868-ian/page__tab__gallery). So, how you have added this full image?
Leaving SEO aside; there is one more thing I want to ask: Is it possible to add a Full Image in post? I am trying to add Full Image after attaching it BUT it only add its thumbnail. How can I attach and add Full Image in a post?
One more thing; if I purchase IPB 3.1 now, will I get IPB 3.2 if it comes within 6 months ?
I am testing IPB demo and I am unable to find how I can enable "Sign in with Windows Live ID". I am sure in some older version IPB had its options just like Facebook and Twitter and I was hoping to see google and yahoo as well before I would convert my forum from vB to IPB BUT it seems rather than adding more, IPB have removed one option. Is it really removed or its me who cant find it and admin-panel ???
Second and the most important thing due to which I am not choosing IPB is its SEO. XF and vB with vBSEO have Thread\Topic URL like http://www.vbseo.com...ay-brian-49442/ and replies to it are like http://www.vbseo.com...ay-brian-49442/ #post309705 which is best for SEO otherwise each reply is considered as a duplicate of the original topic because of same title and are shown as error duplicate pages in Google Webmaster Tools and of course its not good for search engine optimization.
I am unable to find a plugin like vBSEO for IPB which can do what is required. IPB have Thread\Topic URL like http://community.inv...38681-basic-10/ and replies to it are like http://community.inv...38681-basic-10/ page__view__findpost__p__2116167 which should be http://community.inv...38681-basic-10/ #page__view__findpost__p__2116167 because # tells search engine that its a comment/reply to original Thread\Topic.
Can someone from IPB Staff tell me about "Windows Live Sign-in option" and "SEO URLs Structure".
