  1. Quillz added a comment on a blog entry: Corex Responsive Skin Presentation   

    I don't have the Ubuntu font on my Mac... How is it showing up? Are you using something like Google Webfont?
  2. Quillz added a comment on a blog entry: Introducing Agile by IPS Themes   

    The live demo isn't working for me. Looks like a really nice theme, though.
  3. Quillz added a post in a topic: Regarding customer support.   

    You're going to hear from vB customers that IPS and XenForo support is arrogant. You're going to hear from IPS customers that vB and XenForo support is arrogant. You're going to hear from XenForo customers that vB and IPS support is arrogant. You often get back from support what you put in. If you submit a topic full of anger, shouting and threats, yes, you might not get a support member in the best mood. But this has never been the case for me. I've not dealt with support a lot, but when I have, they've been quite friendly and helpful.
  4. Quillz added a post in a topic: Mass replacement of word strings   

    I know I can do that, but it's still a case-by-case basis. There is no way to specifically isolate and select all instances of any particular word or word string and then have it mass replaced with something else.

    It's nothing particular critical, but I often make many minor edits within the various word packs, and being able to mass alter certain spellings of words has its uses, at least for me.
  5. Quillz added a post in a topic: Mass replacement of word strings   

    Unless I can't find it, I'm kind of surprised there is no way to be able to select all instances of a word or word string, and then replace it with something else in one easy step.

    For example, in vBulletin, I can search for all textual instances of "e-mail" and then, in one step, change them all to "email" or anything else I want. I cannot seem to do this in IPB at the moment and think such a feature would be useful.
  6. Quillz added a post in a topic: Sell me on IPS hosting.   

    Okay, that's good news.

    Thanks for the info, I may consider cloud hosting in the future.

    Hmm... Not really a fan of encoded files. Will that limit me to any potential mods I might want to add?
  8. Quillz added a post in a topic: Sell me on IPS hosting.   

    I've been getting the urge to try my hand at running a very small forum again. In the past, I've used third-party hosting, which has always been fine, no problems at all. But ultimately, all I need is space for my forum, since I have no plans to run a full-scale website.

    Anyway, what does IPS hosting offer in terms of space and future-proofing? As long as I pay for hosting, is that the same thing as my license being auto-renewed? Are there any content limitations on what IPS will and will not host? If I buy a domain name, can I get it pointed to the forum?

    Thanks for any info.
  9. Quillz added a post in a topic: No editing controls when using iPad to post   

    The editor is ckEditor, which I do believe uses Flash and/or JavaScript. When that doesn't load, the software falls back to a plaintext input console like the one you're seeing.
  10. Quillz added a post in a topic: Usernames: why?   

    Because I don't want to be forced one way or another into using just usernames or e-mails. There are some message boards that I prefer to use an e-mail address on, others that I use a username for. I like having the choice.
  11. Quillz added a post in a topic: Possible to have an Avatar set for users to pick from?   

    I would guess one could add images into the folder that presently contains a very barren selection of Avatars (which haven't changed since the 1.x days, IIRC.) Beyond that, no, I believe an Avatar gallery of sorts requires some kind of modification.
  12. Quillz added a post in a topic: Usernames: why?   

    I don't want IPB to switch to e-mail only. You can already use an e-mail address to log in if you prefer, that's how it should remain: an option.
  13. Quillz added a comment on a blog entry: Some development decisions made prior to 4.0   

    Will the visual editor still be retained? I find it's the only way I can easily customize the skin. (I usually like to keep the default theme but alter the colors.)
  14. Quillz added a post in a topic: IPB 3.2 SLOWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW   



    The same here. For those having issues, I suggest clearing your cache.
