    Nevermind, it fixed itself!

    Hello! I really like this hook, and it looks great, but, for some reason, enabling it causes some of my skins to give the following error instead of loading the page:

    HTTP Error 500 (Internal Server Error): An unexpected condition was encountered while the server was attempting to fulfill the request.

    Any idea what could be wrong? Thanks in advance for any help!

    Done that already; it's rarely, if ever, used.
  4. Angel Knight Phil added a post in a topic: Download: [HQ] Awards (Free)   

    I'd love to, but my community is nonprofit; nearly all of the revenue from our advertisements go towards hosting costs. And then I have to pay a yearly fee to keep using this one feature if I decide to update my board; I really don't care about the others. I might be forced to buy it, but I don't appreciate being forced to pay for a product because an update took away features that I previously received for free. The only reason I upgraded at all was because I saw in this support topic that JLogica promised that the paid version would only offer extra features, and not take away any functionality. Paying for it would just give him justification for this decision.

    Don't get me wrong; I very much appreciate the work on the mod; it truly is top-notch. But public awarding has been a free feature since before JLogica took it over; I'm very disappointed for it to have been monetized after I had so tightly integrated it into my community.

    I hope you reconsider; this is the sort of business move that companies get tons of backlash for (imagine if Facebook started charging a fee for you to use their chat system).

    So any word on whether or not awarding outside of the ACP will reappear in the free version? In my opinion, this should not be a "feature" but standard functionality within the application; without it, the application is extraordinarly cumbersome and borderline useless.

    If I had known that, I wouldn't have upgraded to the new version to begin with. It's one thing to release a paid version with extra features, but it's another entirely to take some of the features that were once free (and were once half the reason we began using this system) and then start charging for them.

    Hello! I've been using your Awards application for quite some time and am finding it very easy to use. However, ever since I upgraded JAwards from version 3.0.6 to 3.0.17, all buttons for public awarding have disappeared. All other Awards screens show up fine, and I can still award things manually through the ACP, but the buttons within peoples' profiles for giving them awards are gone entirely. I have the hook for it enabled, and I've correctly configured my permissions, but it still doesn't work. Any idea what's up?

    I've just installed this skin on my forum, and it looks great! However, it doesn't appear as if you've correctly skinned it for the newest versions of IP.Chat. Do you have any plans to do so?
  9. Angel Knight Phil added a post in a topic: Emotion Management is absolutely horrible   

    As the webmaster of a community that is focused around its emoticon system (it's a gaming-focused community that has many of said game's images as emoticons so they can be easily called), I totally agree. IP.Board 3.0 and 3.1 at least had okay emoticon management; the grid layout made it easy to scroll through everything, and you could add emoticons in bulk all at once (not upload, actually add). The new management screen is overly space-consuming, extremely difficult to use for forums with large amounts of emoticons, and painstakingly time consuming to add emoticons in bulk. My current plan is to keep upgrading my forum until our current six-month support cycle runs out and then go with that, but a revamped emoticon manager would earn another renewal purchase from us.

    Just to chime in, awards are not showing in the userpane on my 3.3 test board either (they worked perfectly fine on my 3.2 board with Awards version 2.2.4).

    This hook works great, thank you! Out of curiosity, is it possible to style the pinned post differently at all, and if not, would it be possible to add that in a future version? No worries if it's not, I'm just curious.
  12. Angel Knight Phil added a post in a topic: Suggestion: Breadcrumbs   

    All of the skins I've purchased look terrible with that option enabled, and even then, I still have to go into each skin template and add the IP.Content home as the breadcrumb root. It's all a messy and time-consuming solution for what should be a built-in feature.
  13. Angel Knight Phil added a post in a topic: Emoticon Management Screen   

    Sorry to bump this again, but I really want to make sure it was noticed because i just had to add a few new emoticons today and the experience was terrible . In addition to the one-emoticon-a-line display (in which the option to move them up and down means nothing because refreshing the page randomizes the order again anyway), a number of unassigned emoticons in reality are assigned, and removing emoticons seems to randomly remove different ones from the one you selected. This system is terrible . What was wrong with the old one?
  14. Angel Knight Phil added a post in a topic: Suggestion: Breadcrumbs   

    Really? We have everything installed in one subdirectory,, with the IP.Content index page set to use as its index and the forums set to use /forums, and the breadcrumbs are as I described.

    That's a pretty messy fix, though; when you go to the forum home, it only shows Home instead of Home -> Forums.
  15. Angel Knight Phil added a post in a topic: Suggestion: Breadcrumbs   

    I've built a rather complex IP.Content website with pages, pages within pages, subdirectories, the whole spiel. I even use an IP.Content page as my website's homepage, rather than the forum index. Despite this, the forum index remains the root of the breadcrumbs, and IP.Content breadcrumbs never go deeper than this:

    Forum Home -> IP.Content Home -> Current IP.Content page

    This is true even if I'm on an IP.Content page that has multiple viewable levels above it (ex:, the Articles system allows a little more depth, but even then, it doesn't recognize subcategories in the breadcrumb. Would it be possible for a future version of IP.Content to:

    1. Set the default IP.Content page as the first breadcrumb link when the software is set to use IP.Content as the homepage?
    2. Automatically display parent directories in the breadcrumb when visiting a subdirectory? or:
    3. Allow us to manually define a breadcrumb for each page we create?

    Wishes he had the money to renew his IPB subscription, or at least a way to go back in time and tell himself to buy it a month later so he could download this hook...

    I found out how to do the collapsible boxes on forum home. I will test on Content. Think it will work. I'll post it when I am at home.

    wants to find someone who would code a custom skin for very cheap because his site is non-profit, but doubts that it's going to happen.

    1. Tony.M

      What kind of skin... Lol I am no pro but I can see what I could do

    2. Angel Knight Phil

      Nothing very complicated, but something a little more substantial than a recolor of the default skin, I think.

    3. Tony.M

      Do you have an idea of what?
      Maybe a rough copy

    4. Angel Knight Phil

      Well the dominant colors should be a navyish blue and orange. I guess sort of like Ehren's Splat skin? My community is transferring over from a free-hosted ZetaBoard, and I could show you the custom skin from there, but my members aren't a big fan of it, so I'm trying to stay away from it for now.

    5. Tony.M

      If you can pull a scrap copy together on photoshop or something, that would be great

    6. Fishfish0001

      If you like splat why not buy it? Its only $25 :D

    7. Angel Knight Phil

      I like Splat, a lot! However, it doesn't quite suit my board, and some of my members aren't too fond of aspects of it. Even $25 is quite a bit of money to my community, so I can't go throwing it around xD

      And Tony, I can try, but no promises. I'm not very good at skin design, haha.

    8. Fishfish0001

      True. I don't think you'll find a good custom skin maker for under $200ish. I suggest invisionskinning too, or ipbforumskins, they are both nice. Not sure what you're looking for though :P

    9. Angel Knight Phil

      Yeah, that's what I figured. I was hoping to find someone for much cheaper, but I really doubt it will happen.

    10. Tony.M

      I will make it if I could get a rough copy..

    11. Angel Knight Phil

      I'll try to get you one, but you have to give me time to make it, haha.

    12. Tony.M

      Ok no problem.

    13. Angel Knight Phil

      I thought I knew this already, but I rediscovered my epic lack of skill at making theme prints in Photobucket. Would me linking to a few themes that I want it to look like suffice?
