    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: Widening + Condensing Topic View   

    Okay, after playing around with things, I believed I figured out how to do what I want. 
     
    By removing the 9px padding from .ipsBox , it will widen the container of posted messages to match that of the header row above. However, this creates a new problem: it also causes the pop-up menu to also lose all of its padding. 
     
    Before: 
     
    After: 
     
    The "after" image is ultimately what I want to do, but how can I fix the padding issue? Is there some way to change the padding independent of .ipsBox , which seems to control both?

    Perfect! That did it. Thanks so much for your help.
  5. 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.
  6. Quillz added a post in a topic: Getting an error every time a guest posts...   

    I did some test posting as a guest and noticed that this shows up on the topic view...
    Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /Applications/XAMPP/xamppfiles/htdocs/forums/cache/skin_cache/cacheid_7/skin_global.php on line 1889 Here is said line...
    foreach( $author['custom_fields'] as $group => $data ) This error occurs only if a guest posts in a topic. If I don't allow guests to post, this error does not occur. Normally I wouldn't care since I don't plan to allow guest posting on my actual board, but I'm curious why this error might be happening. I allow for "Gender" and "Location" custom fields on my topic view, could that be causing a problem for when guests post?
     
    Here's a topic view page that contains the error. The guest post is the second one...
     

     
    The error also affects the search field. Compare the two screenshots (left is good, right is bad):
     

  7. Quillz added a post in a topic: How do I make these two small edits to topic view?   

    I did something very similar to that, actually. Ultimately, I was able to figure out what I wanted to do. Thanks for the help.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. Quillz added a post in a topic: How do I make these two small edits to topic view?   

    I ended up figuring out how to do it... I had to put the info I wanted into a list, and then set the border color to whatever I wanted, like so:
     

     
    Thanks for your advice, though, it was a good starting point.
     
     
  11. Quillz added a post in a topic: Post Rank & Group Ranks   

    If I understand this correctly, you want two sets of pips to be displayed... One for regular members, and one for, say, something like staff members? If so, I believe that is going to require some kind of hook or skin mod, since, by default, the higher and/or primary member group is the one that will have their pips displayed.
     
    IE, if an administrator posts, his or her admin-colored pips will be shown, even if he has enough posts to generate regular member pips.
     
    Oh, seems it is possible to do this after all. See the above reply.
  12. Quillz added a post in a topic: How to remove time stamp from quote?   

    I followed the edits suggested in this topic, updated the .js files, and the quotes do not appear to be any different on the board. They continue to show a time stamp as if they weren't modified at all.
     
    For the record, I don't want to remove time stamps, I just wanted to reorder the formatting from D/M/Y to M/D/Y. I merely moved some of the _date fields around, but no dice.
     
    Here's what I altered:
    date      = _date['monthName'] + ' ' + _date['date'] + ',' + ' ' + _date['year'] + ' at ' + _date['hour'] + ':' + _date['min'] + _ampm; I just rearranged how it's being displayed, and yet the topic view is showing no change at all.
  13. Quillz added a post in a topic: Widening + Condensing Topic View   

    Not sure if I worded my issue the best way, but there are two things I'm looking to do.
     
    1) I want to widen the portion of topic view that actually contains the posted messages so that it is the same width as the topic view header. By default, the former is a bit narrower than the latter.
     

     
    As you can see, the posted message content is just a bit narrower than I'd like. I suspect I'd have to make some alteration to ipbwrapper (or anything that controls forum width), but I'm not sure.
     
    2) I also want to have the first posted message of each topic "attached" to the topic header.
     

     
    By default, there is a space between the topic view header and the first posted message, but this screenshot demonstrates they can be condensed or attached.
     
    Thanks for any help!
     
  14. 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?
