  1. Possibilities for 'First Click Free' paywall

    This got put on a back burner but I turned up the gas to boil again. I'm about to order IP.Content (for a number of reasons) but I'm now cooking up this First Click Free system. Can this be easily made to work on the core forum too?Another question (unrelated to the above). Can IP content be made to put custom links on the main forum navigation, with the nice javascript drop-down extended menu (like the IPS Resources link here) AND be made to apply rel="nofollow" to specific links (e.g. for advertiser links)???
  2. Who's Online cut off time

    This appears to have changed in the latest version. There now appears to be only one place to make the edit. The 'PT30M'. Is this a safe edit, are there any gotchas I may have missed?. . ./applications/core/widgets. . . /* Do we have permission? */ if ( !\IPS\Member::loggedIn()->canAccessModule( \IPS\Application\Module::get( 'core', 'online' ) ) ) { return ""; } $where = array( array( 'core_sessions.running_time>' . \IPS\DateTime::create()->sub( new \DateInterval( 'PT30M' ) )->getTimeStamp() ), array( 'core_groups.g_hide_online_list=0' ) );

    You and me both. I feel like a seven year old on Christmas Eve.

  5. European Union cookie law. Yes another topic!

    Next you'll be asking IPS to come up with interesting topics for your forum, fully localised of course.
  6. European Union cookie law. Yes another topic!

    I just read this: http://barker.co.uk/cookielawIt seems to me that unless you're operating one if the top 200 sites in the UK you've got little to worry about no matter what you choose to do, and even if you are top 200, no one is being fined anyway.So, it looks like an excuse for rinky dink forum site owners to talk about lofty legal talk. I guarantee none of you visitors give a hoot.But remaining on topic, being compliant appears as straightforward as inserting a line of code to your global template (like you would with an additional meta tag). . . so I conclude IPS already provides the necessary functionality and you can all quit your Euroweeny whining.
  7. European Union cookie law. Yes another topic!

    It sure finances mine, because no matter how much the unelected EU lawmakers bleat on about everyone having to comply, nobody outside the EU has to give a crap. What are they going to do to us in Singapore, throw stones? All this absurd legislation does is advantage non-EU entities. Even so, I don't think anyone has yet been prosecuted, all they've apparently done is send out letters. Farce at the expense of EU tax payers.Anecdotally, the only sites I've seen complying are British ones (BBC et al). Perversely, the British seem to do more than most EU states to comply with the blizzard of legislation that comes out of the EU. Probably why they're so sick of it.In summary, I have a fatter breakfast lunch and dinner on my table for ignoring the above and nobody is ever going to penalise us for that.
  8. European Union cookie law. Yes another topic!

    ​Well I believe bad law SHOULD be disobeyed. Regarding this '5 page' topic, quod erat demonstrandum. Even the lawyers (i.e. the people most likely to profit from it) are groaning at this kind of legislative diarrhea.
  9. European Union cookie law. Yes another topic!

    Honestly I couldn't give a crap and I don't think any of my users in the EU give a crap either.
  10. European Union cookie law. Yes another topic!

    I looked at this a few years ago when it became an issue. I'm British, but I live in Thailand and my server is in Singapore. So, I shrugged my shoulders I decided to ignore it, and wish Europeans all the best with their schizophrenic social controls.That may not be the right attitude but I'm a closet anarchist.

    ​The thing is, having a sense of humour tends not to go hand in hand with being an intolerable pedant.

    ​I'm not reading anything in this topic but expressions of love for the shoutbox. 'Bring it back ASAP' = 'We love the Shoutbox'.
  14. IPS slow response times

    Personally I'm happy to take the early upgrade issues on the chin. I'm of the mind that early adopters are needed, at the end of the day someone has got to find the inevitable bugs, it helps the community of customers as a whole. I've been experiencing some significant upgrade issues that lead me to believe the move to RC stage was premature and it should have stayed in Beta a while longer. Having said that, I accept what comes with being an early adopter. Everyone needs Beta/RC testers, there are just too many environment variables in the real world to reliably predict the outcome on a test server.
  15. IPS slow response times

    ​This is something I'm struggling to comprehend. Why would this only be happening on my forum directory?​
