  1. flaregun added a post in a topic: 3.2 Suggestion - Google Analytics Goal Set up   

    I would love this as well.
  2. flaregun added a post in a topic: Download: (Our VQ) Google Ads   

    How do you setup a "register to remove ads" link like you have on your site?
  3. flaregun added a post in a topic: Download: VigLink IP.Board Integration   

    Not yet, and it's puzzling to me, I can't find the reference to viglink anywhere - it must be buried in the core code somewhere now.
  4. flaregun added a post in a topic: Enhanced Bulk Mail: Make IPB a Better Marketing Solution   

    There really should be an option to tie in with the major marketing providers. At least Aweber, it's one of the most popular and has an API - https://labs.aweber.com/
  5. flaregun added a post in a topic: Custom Database with user submission?   

    I want to create a custom database with matching display template - that part I can do it IP.content. But can you enable user-submissions for the custom database like the articles do? I'd want several fields, image upload, permissions, approval, etc.

    Is that possible with IP.content without having to use the articles db?

    There's no reason IPB shouldn't have guest voting as an option.

    I understand the cookie issue for serious voting, but for asking people questions like "What's your favorite color", voting fraud shouldn't be an issue. We aren't electing the president.

    Let's be honest, there are 20 lurkers for every member and getting them to vote helps build a relationship with the site. I really think you should look at adding guest voting (with the caveat that the results may be manipulated).

    I had this hook installed and decided to remove it since we don't get alot of external product links.

    However, even after removal of the hook via the admin panel, I'm still seeing a call to the viglink server:

    Host: api.viglink.com
    Location: Seattle, WA*
    Error/Status Code: 200
    Start Offset: 4.045 s
    DNS Lookup: 48 ms
    Initial Connection: 62 ms
    Time to First Byte: 74 ms
    Content Download: 0 ms
    Bytes In (downloaded): 0.5 KB
    Bytes Out (uploaded): 0.6 KB

    I can't find any reference to it in the JS code or templates, can you tell me where I can find the call?

    I'm building a marketplace of various files (mostly PDFs). I want to the user to be able to do the following:

    would be nice to see a before and after speed report when using your hook and MaxCDN..
  10. flaregun added a post in a topic: Ip.nexus as marketpace question   

    I'm setting up a marketplace for users to browse, sort, etc. Some products would be purchased from us, while others would be affiliate programs that would need to compete purchase elsewhere.

    Can Nexus do this?

    I also would prefer to show this content in a specific directory structure/url, so I also wonder how that works with nexus

    Yeah, I don't run view-only forums, so I could hack the thread view code. I may try it later.
  12. flaregun added a post in a topic: Motivating guests to register   

    That's my point - guests don't have the permissions, but instead of giving them a brick wall, the buttons should motivate them to register...

    Basically, guest should be shown buttons to register, members get the reply and start discussion buttons.
  13. flaregun added a post in a topic: Download: Topic Preview on Hover   

    Is there a template that I can change the color/CSS to match my board?
  14. flaregun added a post in a topic: Motivating guests to register   

    Right now guests get the "You cannot reply to this topic" button when viewing the forum, but I think that is pointless - they don't know what to do.

    A better solution would be to have a button that says "Register to reply to this topic" with a link to registration page. That would drive more user registrations.

    How hard is this to implement?

    I'm interested in this as well, a way to reward the "super users".
