  1. Mat B added a post in a topic: IPS IPhone App - Does it support the IPS Calendar and IP.Content   



    That's what I'd ideally like, but that sounds awfully like feedback, so I'd suggest posting it in the correct forum :)

    It's supported in that it will render your IP.Content pages as they are in a web view, but it's still currently your responsibility to ensure they're rendered correctly for mobile. I'd like to at some point work on improving IP.Content's mobile capabilities. Calendar is not currently supported but it may be at some point in the future.


    You've pretty much got it there. We'll still call out to the regular web pages for IP.Content data etc, but everything else will be displayed using a native view on the device.

    No, you most assuredly don't have to create a new template for each product. When using IP.Content, you probably already have a page template- simply create your new pages and assign them to this template.

    Unfortunately no, I don't believe you can do this in Articles, as they are merely database entries and from memory are not passed through the templating engine.

    Unless I'm misunderstanding you, which is entirely possible, I don't think white label hosted forums embedded via iframe with different themes is within the spirit of the license agreement. I wouldn't really see that as a valid use case, personally.

  5. Mat B added a post in a topic: Marketplace - suggestions for regulating price vs quality   



    Your idea strikes me as being considerably more flawed, unfortunately. If you provide people some anonymous way to indicate that they are not willing to pay and to "suggest a price", it's highly likely that rather than buying products, some individuals (I dare say, many individuals) will just run around "downvoting" prices in the expectation that they can get it cheaper.

    If you don't like the price of something, do not buy it, and tell the author why not. Authors will value personally written, well thought out feedback considerably more than they will an anonymous click on a "too expensive" button. And frankly, if they respond to a suggestion that they rethink their pricing with public flaming or personal insults, you probably don't want to purchase off that person anyway. It's not hard to simply respond that they have considered your opinion but unfortunately will not be considering price changes at the time.

    (Again, opinions do not represent IPS, so on so forth).

    Regulating pricing is price fixing. And I also do not agree that there need to be more ways to influence pricing - you can choose to influence pricing by not buying the product, or you can contact the seller and let them know that you aren't happy with the price. These are the same options available to you if you were to walk into a WalMart or Target, neither of which offer an Establishment Fee or Retainer type system, or even ratings and feedback. Here at IPS, you can review a product if you buy it, peruse the support topic, contact the author directly, and rate the product. What more can be done?

    Do let us know if you experience funny behaviour though :) Mine does some weird stuff but then it's probably because it's developer unlocked.
  8. Mat B added a post in a topic: Feature reg: tell user if he doesnt exist ;)   

    It is widely considered to be very poor security practice to indicate for a failed login which aspect of the details is incorrect. As a general rule, no properly secured application will ever tell you whether it was the user name or password which is incorrect.

    My personal opinion is that it is unlikely you'll ever see this.
  9. Mat B added a post in a topic: IP. Chat should be using the 3.2 text editor.   


    Images aren't supported in chat, nor are text size or colour options. IP.Chat is intended to be a fast, lightweight chat solution with the bare minimum of formatting to keep chatting sleek and clean. A WYSIWYG editor would be kind of pointless if the only options supported are bold, italic and underline.
  10. Mat B added a post in a topic: Any chance to extract license key from forum board?   


    Actually, you do not enter your URL in the client area. In fact, the URL there is updated automatically when the license key is entered into a board. I would encourage you to keep your key safe.


    You can not regenerate license keys.
  11. Mat B added a post in a topic: Android App   

    As Brandon said, not dead at all. I am currently waiting on some of the chaos from the 3.2 release to die down (every major release is somewhat chaotic, it's the nature of software development :)) and once that has flattened out then I'm looking to get through some rapidfire testing cycles, and release it at the same time as the new version of the iPhone app (which is already done, just waiting for Android to catch up).
  12. Mat B added a post in a topic: Problem with IPS Site and Peerblock   

    It sounds like Peerblock has the Content Delivery Network that the CSS and Images are on blocked. You would probably need to take that up with the maintainers of the Peerblock list.
  13. Mat B added a post in a topic: Blog Comment Pagnation Problem   

    Oh. I'll move this thread to the correct location for you then.
  14. Mat B added a post in a topic: Blog Comment Pagnation Problem   

    I don't understand the question - and I'm not sure you're even asking for support. Is this feedback or a support question?
  15. Mat B added a comment on a blog entry: White Label Mobile Apps and Android App Beta   

    [quote name='Psionmark' timestamp='1309512845'] Should I be able to download the beta? It says I don't have access permissions when clicking the link above.

    You need to have an active board support service. I apologise for failing to mention that.
