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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
