    Fantastic skin!!
  2. rbiss added a post in a topic: Where is the Nexus Storefront?   

    I am considering re-signing up to the Nexus app but until I understand how I can use it it's a little useless.

    Suppose I go through all the setting and create packages etc. Where does the client see it I just don't get where there is a storefront. Can you direct me to some reading material so I can visualize how the end user gets involved?
  3. rbiss added a comment on a blog entry: 4.0 - Advertisements   

    I would like to see the ad system have an IP Content block option: To be able to select the ad and make it into a widget which could be integrated into pages and articles.

    For weighting could you place, for example, 3 that are same adsense code and 1 other and use random to get approximately 75-25 ratio?
  5. rbiss added a post in a topic: Placing pages in root folder?   

    OK thanks!!
  6. rbiss added a post in a topic: Placing pages in root folder?   

    Sorry, I'm trying to understand the process to make that happen.

    1) Could I have forums in the /forum directory and and move an existing IP Content folder to the root directory? What do I need to do to make that happen?

    2) How would I access IP Content admin? Does that mean I would have two admin panels, one in IP Content root and one in forums?

    3) And to clarify, if I have IP Content in root and all other apps in /forums then all of the pages I create won't have an additional extension, like /page?

    4) If I create a number of content pages in IP Content when it is in the /forum directory then move IP Content to the root then all of those page url's won't have /page (or I can alter the urls to delete /page from the IP Content ACP)?
  7. rbiss added a post in a topic: Placing pages in root folder?   

    Yes all of the IP apps and board are in /forums. So if Content is the default app will everything have a /forums/whateveritis.htm extension or can it be without the /forums. How do I make it the default app, by making it the index page?
  8. rbiss added a post in a topic: Placing pages in root folder?   

    So to clarify, everything I now have that has /page/ as an extension would no longer have that once I convert to index.php as the root?
  9. rbiss added a post in a topic: Placing pages in root folder?   

    The IP Content settings give me the choice of something with a /pages/ extension. If /pages/ disappears from the url extension once the forum index page is made root it's news to me.
  10. rbiss added a post in a topic: Placing pages in root folder?   

    One downfall with the IP Content 'pages' format is, at least for some of us, we have very high ranking search engine pages that appear in as root URL's. To switch to IP Content versions the URL must change. This is a huge issue. Considering we can create a primary index page is it possible to add the feature of declaring a URL for all other pages? Surely this can be done. Most CMS's do this so can IP look to do the same in version 4.0?
  11. rbiss added a post in a topic: Compress Image Uploads to less than 2mb   

    OK thanks. How do sites like Facebook do it?
  12. rbiss added a post in a topic: Compress Image Uploads to less than 2mb   

    The biggest reason most members don't use our gallery is because most of their uploads fail, due to raw file size from their camera/device. This isn't user friendly. Is there a way to change things up so that files get compressed to under 2mb when uploading?
  13. rbiss added a post in a topic: IPB vs Facebook   

    The Forum experience isn't much different to the end user than bulletin boards of 15 years ago. Forum software stood still and catered to admin-geekspeak while social networks created something fresh for end users.
  14. rbiss added a comment on a blog entry: IPS 4.0: Editor - Part 1: Content   

    I am totally confused by all this. I do know my community is constantly complaining about editing signatures, and I have to show them how to untoggle HTML and activate bbcode button. Why do we have HTML as the default when it's not something we promote using? We don't allow HTML for the most part. It would be nice to get some clarity on what is happening, what we can do to make it easy for everyone, and why it has to be so complicated.

      me too, was looking forward to this...

  4. rbiss

    submitted a critical error ticket but no way to flag it as critical in my client area

    1. AndyF

      Should mention that in your ticket too. Usually the flag is not present if its a config error OR if its been abused for non critical issues.

    2. cthree

      I submitted 2 critical tickets, one 3 weeks ago that is still not fixed and one a week ago that also isn't fixed.

    3. AndyF

      They must of been escalated to other departments then, ie: beyond normal support scope. If you feel you should have had a response, please submit a new ticket with ATTN: Management explaining :)

    4. Drakior

      I have submitted 2 critical tickets, both of which were addressed in less than 1 hr.

    All too dark

      tap the ON on the light switch xD

    3. 3DKiwi

      I think the member is complaining about skins (again)

    4. Cyrem

      Yes he was complaining about dark skins are only for teenagers.

  6. rbiss

    Needs a professional looking skin and is not aware of any for sale. A very serious downfall with this product.

    1. rbiss

      I would rather pay a couple hundred dollars on a mass marketed professional looking skin than the $10 or $20 stuff that overwhelms this market.

    2. Shadow82x


    3. rbiss

      Been to all of them.

    4. Cyrem

      Downfall of this product? Skins that people produce have nothing to do with IP.B. Why not get a custom skin made? www.ipbforumskins.com and skinbox.net both do custom skins for around $300-500.

    5. Shadow82x

      What's wrong with them?

    6. rbiss

      Yes, a downfall of this product. By a long shot. Designers make nice skins for their sites but create $25 skins. The last time i tried to work with a skinner I bailed out on a junky product and paid for nothing. Wish some of the designers put as much into what they sell as what they create for their own sites. IP skinners need to bring out better products and at higher prices for the many who need them and will pay for it.

    7. Cyrem

      Some of those skinners have made skins for some globally recognized forums... So I'd hate to know what your view of 'professional' is. In your situation, where you can't find anyone to meet your needs, you should make the skin yourself.

    8. rbiss

      Too bad they aren't for sale, which is my point.

    9. Stars25

      In all honesty, you are complaining that there are no professional skins yet you keep refusing to answer people who have suggested to get a custom skin created. And you are wrong, people will not pay more for a premade skin. People will hardly pay $20 as it is for a premade skin because people think creating a skin is a simple and short process.

    10. rbiss

      They will pay more. I'd drop a couple hundred on a great skin (off the shelf). Hell, I dropped that on someone who was making me a custom skin and the design was crap (money I flushed). Problem is everyone makes dark grungy stuff that teenagers like. There are professional organizations that want clean light and quality, and will pay for it. The market is there for someone willing to make the product.

    11. Stars25

      I respectfully disagree. You are talking like paying hundreds of dollars for a custom skin is something not heard of. Your generalization about dark skins is also incorrect. There are plenty of well designed, light skins out there. There is a reason all the skins on the market are around $20-$25, it's because that is what people WILL pay. And like I said before, if you don't anything you like, there is no need to criticize the market, just order a custom skin like many other people.

    12. Matt Enloe

      I paid $50 for my custom skin from FinalPrestige and while it's not light like you're talking about, it looks absolutely marvelous. I get plenty of comments about it. If you're looking for something, I'm sure they can help.

    13. Shadow82x

      I also disagree with the statement that all dark themes are "stuff teenagers like" and are unprofessional. There are plenty of "professional" sites out there using dark themes. Take a look at steam or half of the gaming sites. Heck even hp.com. I guess this also makes my theme at avatarprime.net an unprofessional theme too.

      I think this is just another case of "My heads up my arse, so I can't see the wisdom of anyones words" on the Ops part ;)

    16. Cyrem

      Since when are dark skins unprofessional? It depends on your forum's theme. I prefer dark skins to light(especially at night) so your monitor is not a spotlight lighting up the rest of your house.

      FYI,I'm not a teenager.

    17. Cyrem

      Hows this for you: http://www.finalprestige.net/index.php?p=3&product=123 ... wait no it's $10.00 far far to cheap to be professional... kiddies must have made it.

    18. Herofiles ★


      I really dont think u get any one that are so professional than those three!

  7. rbiss

      Even after translating I can't decipher the process.

    7. rbiss

      Step 7 and 8 is where I'm stuck. Am I creating a folder? If so where what and how?

    8. chebmatrix

    Can I get some ticket assistance on a catastrophic upgrade failure?

    1. Collin S.

      As noted in the Gallery release announcement - support may be a bit slower due to high request rates. We'll get to everyone ASAP. :)

    2. rbiss

      It's been 11 hours hours and my board doesn't function. I could really careless at this point if I ever have gallery, I just need a forum.

    3. Collin S.

      If your site is totally down - you should mark the ticket as critical. Send me a PM with the ticket ID and I will escalate it for you.

  9. rbiss

    Gallerry upgrade has screwed up my board completely

    1. Matt

      I would recommend that you submit a ticket. It's why you purchase support. :)

      Now you know why I never upgrade straight after a new release. I'll be waiting for 4.0.1 before upgrading.

    6. Breadfan

      Always use backups and copy of your board on which you can test stuff before installing it on a live site.

  10. rbiss

    Any skinners do high end skins and web template packages.

    Can a staff member help us understand the process for getting a chat key found and installed?

    1. Olivier Turbis

      Try to click on your "IP.Board" package and use the global key. It'll work.

    2. rbiss

      It doesn't give me a global key. The page is dead links for me.
