  1. foodie added a post in a topic: Classifieds vs IP.Downloads - Why limiting IP.Downloads to selling just files... why not adapt IP.Downloads to sell anything virtual?   

    This is my point...it's developers that are better suited to add Mods,plugins, applications or whatever to add to your site.
    Same with WordPress...it's not WordPress that adds an estore or classifieds..it's the 3rd party developers.
    IPS has already stated IPDownloads is a file sharing application.
    And there is already a Classifieds Mod that integrates with IPNexus.
    So if you going to pay for a custom job..and if you already have the classifieds mod and it's not suited to your purpose..I would think there is the place to customize.
    This is the better solution for you...certainly in the short time.
    IPS has enough on their plate with trying to include a better editor, keeping up with security issues and a few other things I'm sure.
    You definitely have the right to ask and suggest your idea..
    But the reality is I doubt that IPS is considering adding a classifieds function with IPDownloads in the near future.
    But this is just my opinion!  :smile:

    Just bought News System the other day..
    Works great just as the features advertised ..
    I have a separate News Page to add News that also automatically goes into the forums as a thread.
    A sidebar widget also on my forums page with Latest News posts.
    DevFuse did the install included in the price.
    Support appears very good too.

    My apologies to you advance users for being ridiculous.....
     
    But with my limited knowledge I don't think IP Downloads will be used with a classifieds capability....
     
    But who knows...I have been wrong many times before.

    Then you would know there is a difference between a classifieds plugin and  IP Download ..I'm glad we agree  :smile:

    Well actually..WordPress does not offer what you are suggesting...
     
    it's developers separate from WordPress that make downloads,estore, classifieds or whatever available..and they are called Plugins...added to the WordPress core.
     
    Gravityforms is not part of WordPress or the other plugins you are suggesting.
     
    Not to be disrespectful...but you are not listening to what people here are saying and you think no one has read and agreed with your solution.

  9. foodie added a post in a topic: IPBoard needs a useful member feedback system (not just stars)   

    Website CMS software is like vehicles......
     
    Difficult to find one to suit all needs...you might need a pickup truck to get firewood but then you want a small car for commuting to work and everything inbetween.
     
    So comparing WordPress to a forums software is sort of the same...Depends what you want.
     
    No question WordPress is successful at what they do...something like 20% of all new websites are using Wordpress.
     
    But to build a social community ...or a forums community...WordPress doesn't need to go there, but it does in a half hearted way.
     
    Also Wordpress is a free CMS.
     
    That's what plugins or addons are for...
     
    A friend the other day suggested to me that Facebook has a social sharing plugin for WordPress and must be good because they can afford the best developers in the world...
     
    But Facebook's plugin is weak...why?...because other developers make it their business to offer a better product and I'm sure Facebook couldn't really care less about their plugin for WordPress with what they have already.
     
    The best website, in the end will be custom coded but for most of us on a limited budget.....
     
    We will go the cheaper way...as it is way easier to create a website than just 5 years ago...let alone trying to create a blog 500 years ago!
     
    Although I would like IPS to be everything to me...for the couple hundred dollar investment...it's great value .
     
    Up to me to make it worth something more...and along the way I enjoy doing it.
  10. foodie added a post in a topic: A Suggestion to IPS Marketing Department.   

    As I have searched around looking for tutorial videos about IPS, mainly on Youtube I noticed there is a general lack of good videos on how to set up a website using IPS.
    Although there are many written tutorials and of course the forums here is a good place to find info, I find my brain works better when I can see it.
    I also believe that people looking to buy IPS would like to see videos first before they buy, so the return of creating good tutorial videos would come back many times over.
    Looking on Youtube I see vBulletin has many of their own videos.
    I know IPS is better than vBulletin but really in this age of Youtube marketing I would think IPS must have thought before that this is a good idea, so I am guessing it's on the back burner somewhere.
    So if there is a IPS marketing department and they are wondering how to increase sales or get better exposure..........I am thinking  :unsure:
    What are you guys doing? lol
    More people go to Youtube than any site on the net every minute of the each day.
     
    It's a no brainer and can only help the IPS community and your sales.....unless you have enough sales .......
    then forget my suggestion!  :tongue:  
  11. foodie added a post in a topic: How long is it normal to wait for support to answer?   

    I put a support ticket on Sunday and was answered and issue fixed on Monday...
     
    Considering this was Easter weekend..I wasn't expecting anyone to fix until Tuesday...( I'm in SE Asia at the moment so my Sunday is USA's Saturday)
     
    I have licenses with other software  and their support doesn't work weekends or holidays..
     
    I am really satisfied with support here ....
     
    maybe the best I have seen from the many software package plans I have.
  12. foodie added a post in a topic: Best forum support ever!   

    Thxs to support they installed IP Gallery on my website within 24 hours I put my support ticket in...

    All I can is "Wow"
     
    oh ...and Thanks alot!
  13. foodie added a post in a topic: Users complaining it's complicated to include images   

     
    Does this addon work with current IPS version?
     
    I too am looking for a better image upload ....sort of got spoiled working with WordPress   :lol:
  14. foodie added a post in a topic: Invision Going Downhill   

    My problem with IPS Support ..and I can say quite honestly...after wanting to update my software to current release ...and was reading that would take I think 5 days maybe....
    I put my Ticket in....and planning a holiday to Laos for a week...and it would be ready for me when I got back....was..
    Within 2 hours I was updated and they did more than I asked for...
    What Gives..
