    Hi Paul.
     
    I would also suggest to use ProMenu. This is the only addon I use, but for me it is a must-have. You can easily create new entries in the main menu and navigate to your new pages :)

    Hi paulselhi_merged,
     
    I will try to explain to you few of your questions. When I first got in touch with IP.Content I was shocked. Everything look very complex and difficult. But after spending many hours I understood the scheme whats behind IP.Content and know I am very surprised how powerful IP.Content can be!
     
    So here are some answers to your questions:
     
    1) Pages
     
    Pages are good for two things:
    You can create with a page static html content (with or without a forum wrapper) an put normal html stuff in it
      You can create the static "template" for your article page, but for that you need to put the variable for articles and blocks in it  
    2) Templates
     
    Templates are for the design of your blocks, media, databases and articles. Not the whole site, because this is done with pages see above, templates only change the look for the articles, or list of articles
     
     
    3) Articles
     
    Articles are ... just an article with your content. When you have a page with the variable to show articles, they will bw shown on this page using the articles template from point 2
     
     
    That is a little bit confusing at the beginning, but after working some time with IP.Content you will get it :)

    Ok thanks so far :)
     
    Let's see - I think a custiom template shouldn't be a problem. I can use the example temapltes from the media default template to see how to access the datas from the database I. But How do I access any other IP.Content database. Is there some example code snippet for that?
     
    Thanks for your help!

    Hi there,
     
    I started to get in touch with IP.Content. It is a fantastic app, but you need a looooot auf time to get into it :) But hey, I have time so it's not an issue.
     
    Right now I try to build a database in IP.Content (so far so good). No I try to do a simple calculation with data from some database field. Also I think I need more than one database to get what I want :)
     
    I try to give an example:
     
    Database I fields:
    ID - Name - Credit Database II field:
    ID - Database I ID - Date - Action - Comment So in database I I will enter some names and a stard credt for example:
    1 - Benny - 100 In database II I will enter some events like:
    1 - 1 - 1/1/2014 - +50 - Payment 1 - 1 - 2/1/2014 - -50 - purchase No I want to show an chart within IP.Content the credits of my members. For this I should take the start credit (here 100) and subtract / add all events from database II
     
    In this case the final chart should show:
    Name - Credit Benny - 100 (100+50-50) So my question now is:
     
    Is this possible with IP.Content?
     
    Thanks for your help!

  6. pjfry added a post in a topic: Cron for RSS Import   

    Hi,

    I like to to all tasks wihtin ip.Suite with a cron, like the one for generating the sitemap. So I tried this for the RSS Import. My problem is now, that I do not know which file I have to run.

    I tried this one, but this doesn't work:

    /admin/applications/forums/tasks/rssimport.php

    Is there a way to run the Task within IP.Board with a cron?

    Thanks for your help!

  7. pjfry added a post in a topic: Include image in post - size   

    Hi

    thanks for your help. But this isn't what I am looking for. I am looking for a solution when I upload an attachment image within a post to choose then if I like to have the full sized image or just an thumbnail.

    So my questions is with the attachment system attached images and not with "the image button" within this editor.

    Thanks for your help :)

  8. pjfry added a post in a topic: Include image in post - size   

    Hello,

    I just converted my community from XenForo to IP.Board. Everything is great here and works just fine. But I am missing one feature I used a lot on XenForo:

    Is there a possibility that I can choose when adding an image to a post in which size it will be added. So that I can choose to add the thumbnail or add the full sized image (limited to max width of the post container).

    Even better imho is the way vBulletin does it in their newest version. There you can double klick on an inline image an choose what size, which align etc it should have.

    So my quetion, is there an option to do that on IP.Board, too?

    Thanks Benny
