And one more question: in client area - where I can check expiration date of my license? So far I only found Purchased: 21 Apr 2012 . But for sure I did renewal few times already... and the point is that I don't remember when I have renewed last time and for which period. So, how I should know expiration date?
I really see too many "INVALID_KEY" entries in spam service error log. Generally it works well, but as this error occurs too often, daily I get few normal users f***d off unfairly and it brings daily workload as they all write emails to admin mailbox like "why I'm inactive?", which I don't want to get, friendly speaking :smile:
Well done! But I wouldn't use this hook as it doesn't look good on my skin with elastic width. 5 images are ok for min. width, but it looks ugly on max. width. It would be great to add an option which will let this hook to define number of images per line according to fact page width using JS. It would be great if I could use some formula in JS like:
var imagesPerLine = Math.ceil( document.body.clientWidth / X );
where X is some ratio predefined in hook settings.
We all have to agree that a new age has already come. Age of social networks. Forums are pretty similar to social networks, but the key difference is how posts are going to appear on page. Twitter, Facebook, whatever... all post are going to be shown from newest to oldest and new posts appear on top of news feed. People get used to this due to very fast growth of social network popularity and this is actually a serious challenge for classic forum engine. You may not believe in my words, but I really get requests from users to switch topics into "from newest to oldest" view mode. And here I'm going to think about the subject - which audience I lose in fact?
My forums are pretty popular, but meanwhile I realize the fact that almost 80% of audience is coming from search engines. And they leave soon after they find content they are looking for. But it's really hard to encourage at least some of them stay on my forum, to post at least some message etc. Meanwhile I see how easy public social network pages/groups encourage their visitors to get started.
5 years ago there was 20% of people who was addicted to use forums and the rest 80% of people had just no idea how to read forums. Now is 2013, during past 5 years I guess all of these 80% moved more and more faraway from forums by addicting to read news feeds in their social networks. Actually it means that forums run the risk of losing even that 20% of potential audience they could had before.
What is your opinion on this, dear IPS? Very interesting to hear exhaustive statement of your teams point of view.
Briefly speaking: what's your plan to stay inline with the wind of changes (trends)?
