ive tried to buy ip.content but i cant buy it.
i am clicking on this: http://www.invisionpower.com/store/index.php?product=content and cant remove ip.board standard.
i already bought ip.board and now i want only ip.content.
as second question: my ipboard is in mydomain .com /forum/ folder,
can i use ip.content as home page, like this: www . mydomain .com /index.php ?
Josh, i know it is hard work for the team and i know it is not easy decision for the product.
Please dont understand me wrong because i am not trying to teach you guys how to do business ..etc. I am just trying to tell what i think and I will switch from vb to ipb when 3.1 comes out.
In my opinion, vbulletin's success relies on mods (vb.org). And i believe ipb should work on this more. No doubt jquery gives us a huge flexibility to create mods. As a prospective customer, i am trying to create my own unique design and i wanted to change the sidebar animation in forum home (copied the html and js to my comp to work on it). I think i spent around 3-4 hours lastnight to make slide-right and left fx with scriptaculous, without any success! I found custom blind-left and right effects functions but they werent what i was looking for. My aim was to change the sidebar effect (fade-morph one to a kind of accordion like effect). I could do what i want with jquery in few seconds.
Look at http://www.ajaxrain.com/ ; jquery (495) - scriptaculous(45) tells everything.
JS library is very very important and it would be great to have jquery on ipb . It may be hassle to rewrite all the js stuff but at the end boost everything up for us. IPB is very cute company and listens the customers. I hope you guys do your bests for this :)
Hi, I am not a customer yet but I suggest you IPB because it has free wordpress integration, please research more about "IP.Converge". I dont know about wiki and ticketing system but i am sure IPB has solutions for them too.
I am analyzing IPB for past few weeks and I must admit that at the beginning i didnt like the default skin. But after saving the pages into my computer i played with the skin and noticed that it is so easy to change the design. I think thats why IPB put a simple skin as default.
I am still a VB customer, and using it for more than 5 years. VB4 is a complete mess and i dont believe it deserve any cent. If it was opensource free application, then i might want to play it in my local network, but thats all. Vbulletin was a very good software and was running by a good company. But IB bought it and ruined everything. Just take a look at their forums now, there is no any developer that answering worried customer.
Theres a company developer here, name Bfarber , he is very active and helping people when they need technical help. I am sure he can help you about your wordpress/wiki/ticketing system integrations.
Thats perfect Brandon, cant wait to play with the toys.
I am not yet ipb customer but i have decided to move already,
my vbs forum is still little bit hot nowadays and i will switch in february.
to play with the codes, i may buy ipb sooner for my another website tho.
