So yeah we got this going thanks to the help of Dmacleo.
It wasn't long before i noticed that videos don't show. We have video URLs from Vimeo / Youtube set to auto-embed.
Thats a big deal because videos are a pretty integral part of our boards. What it does is it leaves posts looking out of context. Where people say obviously "See below" or "look at this" and there's nothing there. The Tapatalk user's gonna be confused with this.
It's really good that you've made allowances for customising height. I would also include an option for width if it wasn't a major headache. It would be very useful. overall I'm very impressed with the number of options in settings you've clearly been tweaking it for years.
It was also reassuring to get support within a couple of hours.
I'm sorry but I've tried very hard to rectify this. For well over an hour.
There is a section somewhere where I can change a theme between Theme 1 (Controls at the side) or theme 2 (settings underneath). I've looked everywhere and can't find anything with these settings in. There is nothing in system settings.
Can you give me a route to get to these settings please?
I'm also going to want to:
Move the Shoutbox to the bottom of the board.
Possibly edit the width because it seems to be knocking the index off.
Ensure that it only shows on the index.
Edit the timeout frequency.
Hopefully they'll all be in there too.
PS - I also read back IRO 7 pages of this thread to no avail. It's a big thread.
Can't even log-in on a mobile skin never mind check messages or navigate around the boards.
Thing is it's all well and good saying "use full version". Naturally I do this. But we can't look at things from our own perspective when thinking about our boards being used in conjunction with a mobile skin. You've got to look at it from the perspective of someone who hasn't a clue about what they're looking at.
It's very worrying to be honest. Because you know that people follow a link to your board on an iPhone and they're thinking "What is this white and blue thing thats meant to be a website on my screen"
Plus, if 'Full version' is the saviour to having your board look weak. Have the button at the top of a page on mobile not at the bottom when someone (if they're even interested enough to read the actual thread on that format) has managed to get all the way to the bottom. In which case they likely close the window and get back to wherever they were on the net before following said link.
It's a dead-end function also, with no options to re-share whatever they're reading. It's open > read > close, or open > scroll a bit > close. Probably the latter.
I'd prefer the ability to delete the mobile skin for good so that it never kicked-in. but I've tried this without success.
We'd need to make some adjustments together. For instance as far as socials go we use Vimeo, Google+ and a couple of others too.
I want to have it..... but one area would be the colour scheme. Not the white the white is excellent, I think you should do 3 or 4 versions. Maybe a dark red instead of the greens, a blues instead of the greens, a GREYS instead of the greens (that's the most likely to win me)
Right the idea behind this is good, because I'm fearful for users who don't know how to upload images to hosts and wrap links in IMG code, but it makes the whole process even more complicated than it would ordinarily be.
I was doubtful on seeing this because i find Imageshack to be an unreliable image host. Too often I see the Imageshack logo on a forum where someone has tried to host an image. But then I was also doubtful because Imageshack is a dirty website.
What it does is it redirects the user away from your site which is precisely what we're trying to avoid here. They're then confronted with a new browser window full of adverts and flashing gifs trying to get the user to sign up to stuff. Frankly, I couldn't make head-nor-tale of it. It said "You've registered, now pick a username" knowing my doubts were justified I tried it anyway and entered a username. It just hung, with a spinning timer, and, well i dunno what it was doing.
But the idea is a good one. I'd be very interested to see if you could do something similar for a proper image host like http://postimage.org
... which is a user friendly, unbloated, no nonsense image uploader.
'postimage' actually links to facilities of this nature, but I've tried them and it didn't seem like IP.Board was catered for unfortunately.
If you could work something like this with PostImage I'd be up for that I think.
