    Wow, so grasping at straws here. First, people have no problem investing in XF in its current state. Second, are they? Really? Care to wager on how that "suing to the ground" works out?


    As discussed it is ALREADY a part of the core product, not just implemented in the same way, so you are actually arguing against what has already been discussed. It's obvious you know nothing about what you speak when you say, "You can really only put so much into the base framework of a larger application like Invision platform before you start to regress optimizations"

    No worries. I'm just saying, you want something that works well and looks good, you need to change it, regardless on how it gets done. Are there many IPB driven sites that use what is currently shipped? I haven't looked around.

    The poll in itself used to be a pretty big thing at my site. Now that I use IPB where guests cannot vote in them (unless they are also given permission to post) and I don't feature one on the front page due to previous reasons stated - the polls on my site are dead.

    Just sayin.

    Yes I know. It should be changed to be able to use that OR the latest poll, just to automate things. And it may be the same block, but it's really ugly man.

    As stated in the blog:

    You may want to redesign the default 'Who's Online Block'. The current one is rather fugly. The Welcome block is also rough. Latest Poll block should be redesigned far appearance as well and also be configurable to use just the latest poll or an admin desired url. Be nice to have a decent looking stats block as well.

    Yes, I know--you make them look however blah, blah. Just a default one that functions and looks good would be a nice thing default..

    Sounds good.

    This may sound strange but here goes.

    As much as I don't like the ease of IPC, the video gallery I have added to the site is really a favorite feature of my IPB site. Added this video 6 days ago and it has been viewed almost 1250 times and has been Liked 28 times on Facebook.

    To be frank, IPB is not meeting my expectations as a forum and my daily registered members on the site has dropped about 30-40% per day since switching from vb. I am looking to already switch after about 5 months.

    But

    The thing that I complain loudest about (IPC) may end up being the thing that keeps me with IPB. Hopefully the registered users return.

    THANK YOU!

    I am wondering if you could do something with this Ajax pagination script . Maybe you can call 1-10 in one div, posts 11-20 in the next, etc.

    I could do it but I wouldn't know how to call each set of posts :(
  9. glorify added a post in a topic: Caaan we get a tweet button?   



    You may, but the subject matter of my boards is huge on Twitter. Once again, if you DON'T WANT IT DON'T USE IT.

    Damn I swear. Some of you all just b*tch to see yourself b*tch. Such a shame.

    With replies like that, no wonder there isn't as much participation here as there should be.

    I don't think everyone agrees, and you waiting for an easier to use system would say it was failing for you.

    It is not easy to use for noobs. Therein lies the main issue.

    That's fricking funny dude lol.
  12. glorify added a post in a topic: Any news on better Gallery video media support?   


    Check the ip.content mods. I did a mod for this but you still have to add thumbs manually.
  13. glorify added a post in a topic: IP.Content in the future   


    But still you don't get it. Take an average IPB site, then try and use those templates within the wrapper.

    Then after spending a couple hours going thru two different ip.c css templates, three if you have to also figure out why your ipb_style css is conflicting, then also figure out how to delete the ip.c navbar, and the extra js calls that are now in your header, you may have something that semi looks like your style.

    I think what the poster wants is not to have to do that. I don't even want to do that.
  14. glorify added a post in a topic: More indepth profile customisation   

    My users weren't complaining when we switched from vb about profile customization, but they are complaining about the lack of BB code in profile comments, which I have already requested a couple times.

    My profile messages look great with all the unparsed bbcode throughout them that were imported from vb. NOT .



    Then why are so many people here requesting the useless Social Group feature (which, by the way, my community could care less about when I used vb)?

    Before you answer that--

    You'll probably say people think they will be able to use them, etc, etc.

    But what cheat and CallieJo are requesting has been a feature set that has been used at their sites in the past and it was successful.

    My point is--just because there is a request out there, the feature may not work for you, but may work for others.

    No need to have an elitist attitude.
