  1. csm added a post in a topic: Dark choice IPB Style editor   

    Many users have dark themes (maybe as many as light theme users) and for one reason or another they use the default (light) editor, it would be good imo to have a default dark colored editor from IPB. Not the moono style but IPB style.
     
    Thanks

    Yes  craigf136
    and yes  steve00

    Thank you both of you. There's a few more areas to report but I want to see what happens here first because a issue may get resolved by itself possibly. Believe it or not I've beaten almost everyone of these box areas and got a awesome looking theme,, just a few I can't seem to break the box on  maybe a deeper change is needed possibly too because I had to work my rear off to get where I did. lol..

    Other than the issues above I personally think what's been done in 4.0 is just awesome, Get these small tweaks like this worked out and watch out

    Sticking the ipsBox outside of everything does make it a nightmare. You either dig into the html and start renaming ipsBox or leave many corners squared. We shouldn't need to dig into any templates as far as I am concerned. Box also over rides section title which really makes things tough. Designing a dark theme tells all these issues. I tried to let staff know of this but well... 
     
    And some things are classed ipsBox only so you have to use it or leave it entirely. An example of that would be the users new content box then select events.

    Add the new header to beta 2 so skinners can get some completed work done please
  5. csm added a post in a topic: Header Image   

    Ok, my last edit didn't stick so I believe in whole the code would look like this ... I think
    #ipsLayout_header > header { padding: 10px 0 125px 0; margin-bottom: -115px; background: #3d5e78 url({image="MyImage.png" app="core" location="front"}); }

    Each theme in 4.0 has it's own set of folders. After you create your theme you can use the "Manage Images" feature from your specific theme drop down then call the image with the given image output information, for example..

    Edit.. There may be a bug right now that prevents this from working, I think it got fixed for round 3? Also, adding to your Manage images folder allows you to export your theme whole.

     
    {image="MyImage.png" app="core" location="front"}  
  7. csm added a post in a topic: IPC Blocks in default pages   

    I noticed when dropping some blocks into a page a data-list is used which in turn creates a situation when designing separating blocks (Yes, it can be solved   ) however... imo... the blocks need to be separate in the page using the default page forum inner colors for ipc blocks. I can understand why the blocks are in where they are but in general this may be a hard hurdle also for the beginner to overcome and understand and especially someone new to IPC. Besides that, it just looks plain better imo. Just my thoughts
     
    Haven't played around enough with ipc yet and may be able to use the ipc wrapper without templates?
  8. csm added a post in a topic: Remove underscores from content menu items   

    Words here should not have underscores for separation imo.
    thank you

    Look under system settings > Classifieds > Hook Latest Ads

    The rest is self explanatory
  10. csm added a post in a topic: YouTube videos are getting stretched   

    I may be mistaken but I think YouTube made some changes to their code a few weeks ago, Marcher corrected one issue I had due to their change with his add-on.
  11. csm added a post in a topic: Building a tabbed content block   

    You may just want to check into the marketplace for Marchers add on that does this. Does a LOT more than this too and well worth the money. Not sure about 4.0 but Marchers pretty good about updating his work.
  12. csm added a post in a topic: 4.0 "Like This" button   

    :D
     
    Love is so much stronger of a word :D For me I tend to "like" what people say more than I "love" what they say most of the time :D
  13. csm added a post in a topic: 4.0 "Like This" button   

    Not trying to be nit picky here just found this odd for myself.. Seen the new "Like This"  button in a screen and seen there's a heart next to the words "Like This", The heart to me implies "Love This" not "Like This" :D Just sayin :D

    Very nice...  
  15. csm added a post in a topic: IPB 4.0 Beta Released for Active Licenses only?   

     
    I take this as 4.0 being released for action, doesn't say betas, etc... a release is a release. Look forward to it now.

    Glad someone had the smarts to post in the SEO thread. I'm beginning to feel the majority of people saying IPB SEO isn't bad are just idiots and think all of us that want to improve it just want to do so for money. For me...it's so I can get the right information to people (FREE TOO!). I know my content is better than the sites I compete with yet...since converting, we appear under them or not at all.

    Skinbox has best IPB Skins :)

    1. ørret

      When it comes to complex and good looking skins with a lot of extra features, yes. I'm out of words when I'm talking about skinbox. They use a long time making their skins perfect, unlike other providers just dumping skins to the market. I f*ing dreamt of Joie tonight, that explains how good Skinbox is :P

    2. Glumbo

      If you dreamt of joie you may bigger issues than trying to find a good ipb skin

    3. Connor T

      Their skins are great. I'm using Orb :p

      Zaz, what do you mean?!

    5. ørret

      Yeah didn't quite get Zaz either :S. He must have been smoking some faeces :P. I can see it's pretty good stuff!
