    Question of curiosity.... why is the News & Information forum littered with posts that have broken links and broken images? Nearly everything you click on regarding Version 4.0 has issues. The dev site is dead, all the attached images are broken in the posts, etc. What gives? Seems a little unprofessional?

    Amen! The forum developers left us in the dark. I jumped ship from UBB, then VB, and now I am with IPB and planning to ditch it too. These companies just don't get it apparently. It's all about user experience and all they want to do is take us backwards.

    It's sad! :(

    I've been saying it for years... the software needs to be easier to use - NOT more complex. People love Facebook because its simple. Forums are NOT. We ditched Vbulletin for this reason and now IPB is doing it too.

    We're going in the wrong direction and it will only get worse if IPB doesn't listen to us.

    Suddenly I cannot update my sidebars or add new ones. The link in admin just takes me to a blank page.

    Any ideas?
  5. cmiller added a post in a topic: New 3.4 quote..   

    I've got members reporting that quotes dont show up for them now. Just one big continuous post apparently.

    Why fix stuff that doesn't need fixing when there are a million other things to worry about?

    I swear.... 14 years and i've gone from UBB > VB > IPS and I feel I need to be looking again.

    FOCUS..... for pete's sake. :(

    Clearing cache did it. I am in safari on a mac.

    Thanks!

    PS Cant create a new ticket either. Same error.

    I cannot reply to ticket 828175 or 828079 for some reason. Your system just keeps saying I did not enter a message. So I am replying here. Per ticket 828175 and also ticket 828079 I acknowledge your standard disclaimer and would like xxxx.com and xxxx.com both upgraded to the latest version of everything. Thank you

    I am on 3.2.2 with 3 boards and it does not work on any of them. Here is the response from support:

    For the record....

    If you choose to show the topic list as "teasers" and for SEO purposes, your custom forum message does NOT show up when users click on the topic titles. Just the ugly default error that would run anyone off.

    I don't recommend trying this until IPS gives us a real option.

    Is there anything keeping this from working in 3.2.2? We are setting custom error messages per forum, but only get the default: " [#10340] You do not have permission to view this topic."

    Any thoughts?

    I just tried this for the first time, and for some odd reason, google ads do not appear at the top of the results the first time you search. BUT if you click around on the tabs (ie, to web, and then back to custom search) they magically appear. How can we make sure they appear the first time? Otherwise we're missing out on all adsense money.

    Thanks!

    Point updates make me sick... I am done with them. I have faced so many problems. How about a little QC?!

    Totally impressed with this product. What is stopping it from becoming an OFFICIAL IPS product? As a customer I am becoming very weary of products that are not supported officially by IPS. I have already been burned HARD by IPS.Links and I am now to the point that I wont be adding any core products that are not official IPS products. I went down this path with vbulletin and after 7 years of running a VB site, it went from full featured, to core code more times than I care to admit. It makes no sense to run a community where you constantly give and take away features. That destroyed a great site for us.

    Are there ads built into this? I watched a floating ad come across my member map today and there is nothing on my end that would have caused that???

    Waiting on IP to have a built in sidebar. How much longer!
