    DawPi,
     
    Would it be possible to have another advert between subforums and listed threads?  For those of us who have alot of subforums inside forums ;)

    Thanks.  Meanwhile I'll just wait and use something else.  Really appreciate the mod ;)
  3. Darvil added a post in a topic: Ads in specific forums   

    Hi,
     
    Thanks for the great mod.  Came in handy for me.  My question is, is there a way to show the ads on the TOPIC view like on the forum view.  I don't want the ad to show on the first post but rather just in the same exact spots shown in the forum view (ie top and bottom).  For me ads inside the first post is too intrusive but the normal top and bottom ads are ok.

    Why don't you tell us your level of skill?  Then people can recommend the right options.
     
    IE if you know your hardware and software pretty well, you can colocate a server and manage it all yourself for really cheap.  As low as 40 dollars a month.
     
    If you don't want to deal with the hardware but know your OS, then you can just rent an unmanage server and install a free panel like virtualmin and use that.  Running on bare metal hardware you will get alot of performance.
     
    Of course if all you know is how to use a panel like cpanel then probably you should just get a better VPS deal and make sure its managed.
     
    Honestly my opinion is that with that kind of traffic, you should start digging your nose a bit deeper on how things work underneath.  Alot of better options will open for you and price as well.  As long as you have time I suppose and are willing ;)  Alot of people don't have the time to be nerdier then the minimum requirement.

    Instead of using innodb, I've switched to tokudb as an experiment in a dev environment.  Has anyone tried this?  I ran into some strange behaviors so I was wondering if this was too wild a move.
     
    Ever since tokudb became opensource and after reading about it, I thought it would be an interesting option.

    Its not cookies setting.  Mine is the same as well.
     
    Being unable to login because of cookie issue is different.  This is something else.

    Its a real problem.. I'm having to reset people one by one and its a real hassle.
     
    I also can't create a ticket in the client area even though I paid all the invoices.  Ironically I can't submit a ticket to inform them of that.  Not sure how to go about this.

    Hi,
     
    Since I updated to IPB version 3.4, alot of my members have problems logging in and I have had to manually reset their pass.
     
    I know converge has been discontinued since IPB 3.4.  My question is, could this be part of the problem or is the problem I'm experiencing since the upgrade?  Since I've set it at converge for a long time now.  Now I'm just using the local login.
     
    Thanks

    Hi Michael,
     
    If you click in a thread and you click on Topic Moderation, you will see options such as "Colour Title : Blue" etc..
     
    What I'm saying is, when we use a color option to give the topic title a specific color, the above happens where the page section is broken.  If the color is taken out, it all works fine.

    Hi Michael,
     
    There's no mod.  As far as I checked, only the default (part from a few other well known) hooks are running.
     
    Does 3.4 not support color threads?
  11. Darvil added a post in a topic: Thread Colors in 3.4?   

    Putting color code in threads in 3.4 works but clicking in the thread, the pages views is broken.  
     
    Any way to fix it?
     
    here's an example 
     
    Thanks for the help.
