I've been talking about this since the first day of IP3 previews in 2008. My hunch is now supported by feedback from my membership.

View New Posts and Today's Active Posts.

View New Content is a step down from View New Posts. Not sure what prompted it but it makes no sense. People want to follow their own threads through that feature. Was it that difficult to keep their own read posts in it? I'm trying to understand the logic for making that change.

Both of the above also need reference to the original posters in threads.

Without reverting back to those features it doesn't matter how much better the rest of the board is. They immediately detract from what should be a huge leap forward.

Many people found the old method confusing, and we used to receive many tickets about it. That is why it was changed, and I can't imagine it being changed back.
There is an article on IPS Resources to revert it back to the old behaviour if you're so inclined.

I'm getting the feeling Patrick wants RSS feed URLs using the FURL system.

Long before IP3 was introduced I surveyed my members on surfing habits. 56% used view new posts as there sole method for using the board. All the hard work of the development team is overshadowed by this issue. Very misguided change. Both unfortunate and unnecessary.

The ability in 3.0.1 to edit the hook access point without enabling IN_DEV mode would be perfect, so I won't need to release 5 different hooks for the shoutbox <_<

I tried what the article said and it created errors. Perhaps someone on the development team can volunteer to make the change for me on my board.

When I use the code noted in that article this is the result I get when using the function:

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_ELSE, expecting T_FUNCTION in /home/home/public_html/forums/admin/applications/forums/extensions/searchPlugin.php on line 443

Certainly, if you're having problems: by all means, submit a ticket :)

Gee Charles, where ever did you get that idea from? :whistle:

I notice the modified version only finds posts from the homepage. What code would go in to work on all forum pages.

Fix view new posts. (not content)
Fix search.
Provide us with a decent skin.

Those are three huge flaws and you may find not many big sites upgrading unless they are sorted.

Out of interest, is there a mod out there to get the stats on board index and forum index in two columns as in every other version of IB. I don't like them in the same column underneath each other.

Works fine for me.

Fix search.


Again, works fine for me.

Provide us with a decent skin.


Ummm.... not sure what you mean "decent". If you don't like the look/feel then by all means... design one you think is better or grab one from the various resource sites.

Um, big sites pay big money and can afford to hire people to update the skin to match their site. If there's that much of an issue with the search, then they can submit a ticket to IPS and being a $pecial ˘lient I'm sure they'll whip up something rather quick to suit their needs. There's already a mod on how to change the new content behavior and that's all of your listed issues.

Anything else? :)

I'm on what I would regard as a big site. I won't be upgrading until a few issues are sorted out e.g. view new posts.

The skin issue one is nonsense. Just a matter buying a good skin from the likes of Dragonfly who make professional looking skins for a very modest price. The new IPB3 skin for me is about as boring as the previous default skins were and I would never contemplate using it.

I would like to have a chat with the people who apparently had an issue with the old view new posts. How many went to IP asking for this existing conversion on 2.3.6 and exactly which planet are they from? Lets bring it on ... turn this into a UFC match.
