    Nexus is by far the more superior application, although if you are looking for JUST premium membership managing, I would highly recommend the Subscriptions Manager. It does specifically what you are looking for. Nexus does too, but it is a more wide spread application.

    Here is a link to the Subscriptions Manager:

    That is correct. Paid skins are not available to use on my company's forums due to security reasons, unfortunately, but there are a ton of screenshots on the product page, and if you need to see any other view of the skin, I'll gladly take more screenshots!

    Although there are risks for putting up live boards, I'm sure you lose a lot of sales (like mine) due to not showing a live demo. I like to see exactly what I'm getting, before I get it.

    Couldn't agree more. The new IP.Content is a lot more user friendly, and we have seen a ton of great features turn up in IP.Board 3.3.0. It's almost to the point where I can't suggest anything more.

    Can't wait to see what the rest of the IPS applications have to offer, if anything.

    So many problems would be solved if people knew how to read directions...
  5. Weatherz added a post in a topic: Cool Idea for Upgrading...   

    Then they could add a separate file clearly marking the fact that it is only for upgrading?
  6. Weatherz added a post in a topic: Cool Idea for Upgrading...   

    Well, a lot of us customers already have boards, and want to be able to just simply upload the new files for things such as Beta 1 to Beta 2. It seems pointless to reupload every single file, when it really isn't neccesary.

    I was thinking that there could be two folders in the download, one for first time installing, and one for upgrading so those of us who already have a board and just want to upgrade.

    The first time upload folder would have everything, and the Upgrade folder would just have the specific files that were updated.

    It would make upgrading a lot faster, and take out the hassle of replacing every file and waiting for that to be done.

    Post your thoughts on this, as I would think many would agree with me.

    IP.Content needs to have some sort of receto add to the board index, but not on the sidebar.

    Like this

    Other than that, I love the new changes :D
  8. Weatherz added a post in a topic: A few questions   

    I think you mean memberbase. But yes it should be fast, if it's small. IP.Board is a lot better than SMF in my opinion, and probably everyone elses as well. I would suggest getting a Community Hosted site so that it is set up for you, and you get a license just for paying hosting. There are a few limitations of that, but if you are starting out you will be very pleased. IPS also offers full free support with a license, which you would be getting with your hosted community.
  9. Weatherz added a post in a topic: Restrict Admins by IP Address?   

    You can use something like this:

    <?php $allow = array("", ""); if(!in_array($_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR'], $allow) && !in_array($_SERVER["HTTP_X_FORWARDED_FOR"], $allow)) { header("Location:"); exit(); } ?>

    Replacing the local host IP addresses with your admin's IP Addresses and with the page you would like unauthorized people to see.

    To add more IP Addresses, just follow the pattern already made.

    This is not recommended if your admins have multiple IP addresses or their IP changes very often. Although you can add IP addresses as you wish.

    To use the code, open your index.php file located in your /admin folder and place the code above ALL code.
  10. Weatherz added a post in a topic: Few Questions About IPS Hosting   

    One of the biggest concerns of mine is to be able to have a test board (or two) for myself to test on upgrading, skinning, etc.
  11. Weatherz added a post in a topic: Few Questions About IPS Hosting   

    Yeah I have Nexus, IP Chat (20 User) and a standard license at the moment, so I think I'll just stick with that. I was hoping that you would be able to do a little more than that with a Community hosted site, but then again it is supposed to be for your IP.Board site.

    Thanks for answering :)
  12. Weatherz added a post in a topic: Few Questions About IPS Hosting   

    Well I'm thinking about switching to IPS hosting, so I can pay all at once. My current hosting is Hostgator Level 5 VPS, which is $104 a month, which just includes hosting and obviously a lot more abilities with the server.

    But since I do use IP.Board, and I just think it would be much simpler to go with IPS hosting, I wanted to clarify a few things before I make my decision.

    1. What are the benefits (aside from a license and applications) of being hosted on an IPS hosting package rather than Hostgator? Here is my current plan:

    What my plan would be:

    2. Does the hosting include cPanel?

    3. Is the license completely mine to use and do I have full access to all the applications and downloads to them?

    The package says all applications and a license are included. But what I am wondering is would I have full access to all of these application downloads to say, put a test board up and install all my apps, or would I have to contact support?

    4. Will I have full FTP access to upload and store things as I please?

    5. What are the limitations (if any) of having a Hosted Community?

    Thanks for reading, and if you can answer these questions (preferably staff) I would really appreciate it!

    One small problem with this hook is the minimize/maximize is messed up a bit.

  14. Weatherz added a post in a topic: A few questions before i buy IPB forums   

    1. They will not convert forums as far as I know.
    2. You can buy IP.Blog and that will give you /index.php?/blogs and you can edit that so it is just /blogs.
    3. 1 license is good for one main site, and one test site using TESTINSTALL after the license key.
  15. Weatherz added a comment on a file: (e34) Custom Name Style   

    This is a really great hook, and I'm so happy it's finally been made! Just one suggestion, make an option to somehow disable black color and white color, so members can't make there name basically invisible.

    Another suggestion towards that could be for certain premade colors to be options in the settings, and for administrators to have to enable or add colors via options or make there own in with the color's hex.

    Other than that, this is perfect.

      It's okay, just I really have a thing in for simple re-colors of skins lol.

    2. Marcher Technologies

      Rev, Were Likely to see an influx of these due to the VSE... Quality, Proper skins will always stand apart from these color-swaps though.

  4. Jeuhen » Weatherz

    Keep trugaming for yourself, don't sell it.. i know you've based it entirely off blackstream with a few tweaks.

    1. AndyF

    2. martin-al

      yeah. lol.
      You can always revert the template.
      Secondly, add a new default skin, and copy it from there. :)

    Using PuTTy to manage clients servers got me so excited to use Unix, so I uninstalled windows, and installed Ubuntu. This is SEXY

    1. TeamJesus

      noice Ubuntu is awsum!

    2. The Heff

      I'd do the same, but I am a gamer. Windows is a necessity.

  11. Weatherz

    Realized that running a gaming site is useless, with the 10 new gaming sites a week, as well as the desparate owners who try to spam to get members, I think its time to put my license to better use :)

      If you want to succeed with a gaming forum, your best shot is to be the first to start one about a new console. I think your chances of success are quite positive then. I know my Wii U community's doing pretty well, in any case.

    3. dogpatch

      or a forum for a specific brand new game

    4. Cyril Washbrook

      To add to Feld0's suggestion, I recommend developing your own console. That way you're guaranteed to have the first forum dedicated to it. :P
