Hey i am using the latest 3.4 beta 5 on my localhost install.. I am also running the latest version of IP.Content.. now the "Promote to Article" settings are all set correctly but there is no button / link within forum posts to promote to a article.
I am trying to create a menu (well 2 actually) that would look like this in one centered line / within one primary menu looking / type navigation bar:
Menu #1 | Logo | Menu #2
Now i can manage the CSS on my own.. what i am struggling with is working out how to embed / make these menu's appear within my globalTemplate.. I can create them using your ProMenu Plus menu page.. i just seem to be missing something in regards to transferring these menus into the template :S
I am already a IPS customer but am interested in purchasing further licenses for other projects but would like to know a few things first.
#1) Will the release of 3.4 have any effect on current templates / url's, basically i am wanting to know if updating will have any negative effect on my site if updating to 3.4 and further more to IPS4 / IPB4 once released..
#2) IPS4 / IPB4 is there a rough time frame on this.. also assuming i have IPS 3.3 / 3.4 (after updating) are there going to be massive changes in terms of the overall url structure / articles (IP.Content)..
Sorry for the somewhat confusing questions.. It's just no info on IPS4 / IPB4 is really known and while i think IPB is a solid company i am unsure of the future (like most people lol) but am just a little worried about developing projects on the current releases to find out future updates may possible have massive changes which could have negative effects if updating.
I recently purchased.. IP.B + IP.C for my new project.. My site / project will primarily be used to promote both my free & premium designs, the site will also contain webmaster forums guides and tutorials etc etc.. I still need to purchase IP.Nexus and the IP.Blog addon... but believe i can add this is later without it effecting much... <--- Please advise me if this is not the case.
OK.. My Two Questions:
#1 Am i better of waiting for 3.4 before starting to install / develop my website.
#2 Will i need IP.Downloads since i will be offering digital downloads..
#3 How long (ROUGHLY) until 3.4 is out ?? just a rough time frame please !!
#1)... I have the latest IP.board & IP.content right now.. and am ready to start putting my site together / creating a new design / skin.. will this 3.4 update force me to start my design all over again.. or can i start now and not run into too many problems.. i don't mind if it's just a few template edits.
#2)... I am sure the last time i setup a project like this offering free / premium designs using nexus that we did not have IP.Downloads .... can someone in the know please inform me whether this will be needed or not ?? what advantages will IP.Downloads bring to the table.. please be honest !! i don't want to purchase it right now if it's not going to carry some advantages.
Sorry for what would see simple questions , Ive not used IPB / IPS for about 1 year now. I am just running a little behind for this project and need to do things correctly from the start now... i don't have time to go back and fix things so i thought i best ask and try to get things sorted from the start.
So this is a new service by IPS ? does this support other CDN's ? or will licensed users be forced to use a IPS "CDN" Thanks.. sorry for asking but i read a while ago IPS would add support for the use of a CDN but still unsure if this is a IPS solution or we could use other CDN's without having to manually hack up files to enable other CDN's.
EDIT:... Is there a rough time frame on 3.4 ? Thanks
