I have two forums. One is running on vBulletin 3.6 and the other is running on the latest version of IP Board. I wish to merge the vBulletin 3.6 forum into the forum running on the latest version of IP Board. Both are from completely different domains.
If you're familiar with earlier IP. Board releases or generally any other forums software, you'll be aware of the header that would go with every forums index category that said "Forum, Stats, Last Post info". Ever since the upgrade to IP. Board 3.2.0, the header has been hidden. It's pretty easy to re-enable Minimum knowledge is required.
All you have to do is open up the skin you would like to re-enable this on in the default edit mode, go to the board index template, and then (I suggest using your in-browser search function) search for <tr class='header hide'> and change it to <tr class='header'> then save. It's pretty simple.
I think this is a useful tip for skinners. I know there's a lot of people who miss this detail (myself included).
Thanks for reading! :) I hope this short tutorial is of use to you.
No, it's not for certain people. It's a step forward, but some websites can't support it (design-wise), so being able to set it to a fixed width with a mobile skin is the best solution for them. A lot of people have a website structure that doesn't support a responsive design as I mentioned in my opening post. I use Wordpress on my site with IP. Board being used just as a forums system at /forums.
Thank you for your insights :) I ask this because vBulletin 5 is responsive, but is difficult to set to a fixed width.
Though I was hoping a staff member could confirm this?
The other day I read a staff member state that IP. Board 4.0 will have a responsive design. This is good, though some of us have websites with a design structure that doesn't support a responsive design. I have always found the IP. Board mobile skin a good solution for this.
Will IPB 4.0's responsive design be easy to set to a fixed width? Will IP. Board mobile still be available, or possibly replaced?
Those examples are pretty bad and unneeded. Ditching what is the pinnacle design of message board software is a terrible idea. All they need to do is add a few bells and whistles to the current design, make it responsive, and you have a perfect design for 4.0
Tons of people are fleeing from vBulletin 5x due to trying to follow those examples you listed.
