    Ensure the hook is installed and enabled.

    Hi kaare_t,

    Go to ACP > System Settings > Skins > 4Real and add the following to Extra CSS:
    #branding { min-height: 50px !important; } html { background: #FFFFFF url(INSERT IMAGE URL) repeat; background: url(INSERT IMAGE URL) repeat, #FFFFFF !important; } Replace INSERT IMAGE URL with the desired background image, and modify 50px to change the height of the space if desired. Then save the settings.

    Thanks,
    Con

    That normally happens if the hook file hasn't been installed and enabled (see the README file, which contains the installation instructions). If you've done that, please feel free to provide further details and/or a temporary admin cp account so that I can investigate further.

    Add this to the skin settings extra css and replace IMAGE with the image url:

    html { background: url(IMAGE) !important; }

  7. Con added a post in a topic: Google Webmaster Tools: 'Increase in soft 404 errors'   

    Over the past few weeks, Google Webmaster Tools has reported an increasing number of soft 404 errors for pages they say do not exist. However, the urls they listed are viewable by guests. The issue seems to apply mostly to calendar pages, user pages, and tags pages. Any idea on what to do about this?
  8. Con added a post in a topic: tables crash after IPB 3.4.5 upgrade   

    After upgrading to IPB 3.4.5 without upgrading the other apps, these tables crashed when attempting to edit an IPC article:

    ibf_ccs_custom_database_1
    ibf_posts

    Things seem to be fine after repairing the tables, but I'll keep a lookout. Just thought that I should let other upgraders know.
  9. Con added a post in a topic: all apps should throw 404s for nonexistent pages   

    If Use .htaccess mod_rewrite is on and the default app is NOT forums , 404 redirection may not work. Example .
     
    If the default app is forums , nonexistent pages throw 404 errors. The same should apply to other apps.
  10. Con added a post in a topic: .htaccess mod_rewrite preventing redirection to a 404 page   

    I found out that if the default app is set as the Forums, like it is out of the box, then it goes to a 404 page, like at  http://community.invisionpower.com/adasdas .
     
    However, such an option is seemingly unavailable if the default app is set as something else, like Downloads: in that case, a custom 404 page appears to be required, but there is an issue redirecting to it if 'Use .htaccess mod_rewrite' is on.
     
    If anyone knows how to get proper 404 redirection in these cases, your input is appreciated.
  11. Con added a post in a topic: .htaccess mod_rewrite preventing redirection to a 404 page   

    If the following code, suggested by IPS under the setting 'Use .htaccess mod_rewrite', is in .htaccess, it prevents redirection to a 404 page whether or not the setting is enabled.

    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c> Options -MultiViews RewriteEngine On RewriteBase / RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f RewriteRule .(jpeg|jpg|gif|png)$ /public/404.php [NC,L] RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d RewriteRule . /index.php [L] </IfModule>  
    Basically, if the above is existent in .htaccess, the following code used for 404 redirection does not work, and all that happens when accessing a non-existent page is that the page is reloaded.
    ErrorDocument 404 /404.php  
    I wish to use the mod_rewrite code for friendlier URLs, but I also need 404 redirection for optimization. How can I make these compatible? Thanks.
  12. Con added a post in a topic: 404 not working   

    The setting "Default 404 error page" in IP.Content is set to 404.html, and I have created a 404.html page in IP.Content that is accessible to everyone. However, the 404 is only being redirected to in IP.Content. For example, if visiting a non-existent page on the Forums or other apps, it just reloads the page. I had this in .htaccess:
     

    ErrorDocument 404 http://xr3x.com/page/404.html  
    I then uploaded a 404.html to the root and tried the following for .htaccess:
     

    ErrorDocument 404 http://xr3x.com/404.html
    ErrorDocument 404 /404.html  
    But same issue! Anyone know what the problem is?
  13. Con added a comment on a blog entry: 25% OFF SALE AT IBSkin! Plus ALL IBSkin 3.4.4 Upgrades Released!   

    There always seem to be at least two people/users that vote 1 star on Marketplace blog entries by certain authors, particularly select skinners. Very peculiar indeed.

    Hi there,
     
    Add this to 'Extra CSS' in the skin system settings:
    #board_statistics { background: transparent !important; }  
    You can also replace 'transparent' with another color.
  15. Con added a post in a topic: Clearing out database. Is it safe to empty these?   

    I need to reduce the size of a database. Is it safe to clear out all of the rows in the following (i.e. so it won't cause any site issues)?
     
    ibf_skin_cache
    ibf_spider_logs
    ibf_error_logs
    ibf_backup_queue
     
    Thanks.

    Why do CKEditor and IPB play with each other if they can't get along?

    Talk about updating en masse. :P

      Hopefully I didn't flood you with notifications, did I? I thought it only did that when I actually clicked the 'upload new version' option.

    IP.Tracker 2.1 Beta 3 is virtually unusable in IPB 3.2.3! Please help when you can. It's a great mod and it's a shame if it isn't made more compatible with the latest version of IPB.

      Looks like my comment got cut off. Here's the final part of the comment again: "However I didn't see any change in version number for these with the exception of the Shoutbox which went from 1.2.1 to 1.2.2. Is it advisable to re-download any of the others mentioned? Thanks."

    2. Michael

      They were just changes to the title to indicate the support IP.Board version, with the exception of the Shoutbox and DB Customization Manager, which were upgraded.
