    We're not offering "just a plugin." You can't compare "responsive" web design to mobile (iOS and Android) apps. It’s a difficult choice to make since both options present advantages and disadvantages that must be taken into consideration. Responsive Web design is certainly the most "affordable" option for some business's as compared to the development of a mobile app. That's where we come in and level the playing field by making inexpensive yet custom, white label apps based around IPB. A mobile app will provide users with unique functionality and speed that can’t be achieved with a responsive website.

    Still have a few more spots available for free iOS and Android app beta testing. Please PM me if you're interested.

    Really appreciate all the responses. We still have a few more spots available for beta testing. 
    To clarify a few things that were mentioned privately.......You're able to run TapaTalk simultaneously while testing our iOS and Android app.  Additionally, immediately after public release we plan on getting out more of the IPB components (starting with Blog and then Articles).

    I'm happy to finally announce the (beta) launch of ForumMob!
    Welcome to Forum Mob, the white label mobile app solution for IPB forum owners. Get your forum up and running within minutes to promote your active community. These are just some of the features you can expect.
    Customization – Customize the look of your forum with themes of your choice, and choose your preferred settings such as user profile visibility.
    User engagement – Keep users coming back with options such as automatic notifications of new posts, organization of unseen content for each user, and recognition of active users.
    Communication – Users can post discussions, polls, and videos effortlessly from their mobile devices.
    The administrative options in ForumMob make it easy to keep your forum running smoothly.

    Ability to track troublesome users and impose sanctions such as moderator approval before posting or banning from the boards.
    Simple one-step option for users to report objectionable content to moderators.
    Automatic logs of site errors.
    Standard security protections.We're looking for a few beta testers. Please PM me if you're interested in being part of our beta launch! We would prefer to work with active forums.
     
    If you're accepted into the beta phase, please go through the following steps and requirements so you can get your forum customized and running as soon as possible.
    You must be running v3.4 of IPB. We do not currently support v4.
    Send the following information about the forum:


    Forum Name



    Forum URL




    Send us icons for the app and for the splash screen.





    For iOS, see https://developer.apple.com/library/ios/documentation/userexperience/conceptual/mobilehig/IconMatrix.html. We need the first 3 rows for the first 3 columns on that table (app icon and launch file for the iPhone 4s, iPhone 6, iPhon 6 Plus)






    For Android, see http://developer.android.com/design/style/iconography.html (just the "launcher" section)







    There is a good guide to creating a splash screen here: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/10574363/android-splash-screen-image-sizes-to-fit-all-devices. Another helpful site to look at: http://www.gieson.com/Library/projects/utilities/icon_slayer/#.VHzawTHF81I, which can help generate the images in all the required sizes.








    Since this is a beta version, we are still ironing out the wrinkles. We ask that you set up a designated forum (on your site) where users can post their feedback on the app. This way, we can monitor the forum and handle issues more efficiently.









    Beta testers must take care of their own app store accounts. 










    Before you get your Forum Mob app, we will send you the server component, which you will install on the server. We can't make the build until that piece is done.

    Thanks for trying Forum Mob!

    We've been working with Esther since 2011.  She's hands down the best IPB dev we've ever worked with. I've worked with hundreds of developers over the years on hundreds of projects.  She gets the job done professionally and in a timely fashion, yet she's still very reasonably priced.

    The member was using windows 8.1 on a laptop and was trying to sign up using Internet Explorer 11. The message they kept getting was: "An error occurred while reading the recaptcha server" or something of that sort. They tried 5 times on IE with the same message until they gave up and installed Chrome  I don't know if it was a cookies problem or certificate issue. Maybe antivirus set up or proxy. I couldn't tell you why it wasn't working their end, but it did work with Chrome. Maybe it's possible the recaptcha server was down and it had nothing to do with the browser. Not sure if this is possible but maybe you should look at adding a check to see if the recaptcha server is up or down and only show the recaptcha if it's up.

    This plugin is a MUST HAVE! It's stopped almost 100% of spam signups. I received a few complaints about it not working on IE 11. I tested (via BrowserStack) and had no issues.
  9. BariatricPal added a post in a topic: Tip for getting images to display correct way round   

    We see this issue quite often. There should be a simple feature built in to IPB that allows members to flip uploaded photos. That would solve issues across the board.
  10. BariatricPal added a post in a topic: IPB vs Facebook   

    FaceBook is hands down our biggest competitor. Thankfully our members are looking for anonymity and many aren't willing to "share" on FaceBook. We've harnessed that power thus far but it's going to be difficult moving forward as long as we're not ahead of FaceBook technologically and intuitively!!!!
  11. BariatricPal added a post in a topic: Scheduled Threads/Posts?   

    This is a great idea! We use this with Articles in IP.Content. I hope this feature is standard for forum posts at some point.
  12. BariatricPal added a post in a topic: IPB 4.0 - Theme/Release   

    I'm not positive I'd wait. IPB will release the public beta in a few weeks? How long will it take for a truly stable release? 6-9 months - at a minimum ? Guess it really depends on your budget and launch timeline.

    w00t!!!
  14. BariatricPal added a comment on a blog entry: 4.0: Quick Translating   

    I'm really psyched about this feature! It'll save tons of time and make things so much easier to update.

    Very nifty!
