  1. Single Sign On Bridge for WordPress and IPB 4

    Seems Crowdfunding will not be successful, but don't hesitate: As promised, I'll develop the bridge even without crowdfunding help. As all pledgers will get their money refunded by Indiegogo if the campaign fails, I want to support those, who are supporting the project: All pledgers will get a coupon with a discount on retail price to allow them purchasing the software for the same price as in campaign. Again, thanks for your support
  2. Single Sign On Bridge for WordPress and IPB 4

    14 days left and still 5% reached yet. Just want to inform, that I'm currently in discussion with a Major Sponsor for IPBWI API. This would allow me to implement content creation API (topic creation, post creation, topic info, post list) from the start of the IPBWI v4 release. Nevertheless, please note, that my prices for release will depend on success of this crowdfunding project. If I see a too small market for that software, I'll be required to increase prices to make sure my invest makes any profit. I do not consider making any compromise in quality of my software, so reducing effort is not an option. Looking forward to hear more feedback. If you spread the word, this would help getting enough awareness :)

    Of course, that's absolutely understandable :)

    See the current featureset of IPBWI for WordPress 3 and you'll see my targets for IPBWI for WordPress 4. Of course, you can wait, but keep in mind, that once released, the price tag is 179 EUR. If everyone waits, until the perfect feature set is developed (and I don't blame anyone for doing that), it will take longer and be more expensive.

    including 1 year of updates, but unlimited time of use. You are able to use the plugin lifetime without need to update. If pledge goals are achieved, these will be included within the first year, sheduled for release date in fabruary. If not, I may develop them and other features later.

    There is just the third pledge arrived and I feel the social marketing is growing and growing :) I really appreciate the discussions about the software I offer and if you want to join the current discussion about IP.pages vs WordPress, you'll find it here: https://www.facebook.com/IPBWI/photos/a.1215945578421111.1073741825.330108103671534/1215945368421132/?type=3

    I know a very good joomla programmer who may be interested in doing that. You may want to fund the IPBWI API, as this would be the interface for programming SSO plugins for every PHP software you like.  
  8. Single Sign On Bridge for WordPress and IPB 4

    Many have asked me to continue developing and bringing the major update of IPBWI-API and IPBWI for WordPress to support IPB 4. It's now your chance in supporting me. I've started a crowdfunding campaign, so you are invited to pledge, but even your feedback, suggestions or questions are welcome. I'll monitor this topic and will answer asap. Thank you for your support and cross your fingers for reaching the funding goal.   Crowdfunding Site Website Facebook Twitter

  10. Version 1.0


    Redirect Script for vBulletin Album images to IP.gallery images is a script which redirects from old vBulletin Album images to new IP.gallery images. This script will save you hundreds of hours for converting these links manually. It's made for redirecting image-links or image-source-tags, as IP.board converter does not take care for these URLs.   In Short, your benefits: Redirect Script saving you up to hundreds of hours of manual work! No changes on your Database (read only queries)!   Requirements: Currently, vBulletin 4.x is supported only. modrewrite is required for .htaccess redirects. Installation: Copy directory "sv_vb2ipb_images_redirects" into your board's root directory. Open the directory within your browser via http://YOUR_BOARD_URL/sv_vb2ipb_images_redirects/ Add the shown .htaccess code at the top of your .htaccess file in your board's root directory Uninstallation: Revert Changes to .htaccess file Delete directory http://YOUR_BOARD_URL/sv_vb2ipb_images_redirects/ How does it work: The script looks for the old image ID saved by IPB converter script. ID was found? great, redirect to new image URL. If the ID wasn't found (or saved under "you'll never find it"), the script will perform a search based on old filename. If lucky, the first entry found will be used. Known Issues: The script cannot find images which cannot be found even by ID or a search query. Please be aware that there could be a small amount of images which cannot be retrieved. Unfortunately, these cannot be fixed by this script, as this is an issue of improperly converted images from vb albums. Sometimes, other filetypes than images are placed within image tags, this is an issue by the IPB conversion script. If you see broken images, please check first wether e.g. a PDF file is embed within image tags. Just change BBcode in post for that file to solve that issue. At least you don't have to manually search for the new file link.


  11. License Question - sub-directories of one domain

    Hi Ken, thanks for quoting my topics, but in the meanwhile, when reviewing my points, I'd say that there are some specific cases where the master/slave system of IP:connect could be better than the "all master/all sync" way of my plugin. There isn't only one way to reach a target. Thats why I'm going to develop an IP:connect master application in future, allowing to manage and sync the userbase of different boards and maybe additionally WordPress installations. In your specific case I'd strongly recommend using my IPBWI for WordPress plugin with a single IP.board installation. It will be required to enhance IPBWI for WordPress for supporting synced usergroups (maybe incl. secondary groups management, depending on your payment system). Yeah it would cost a few hundred EUR, but on the long run, you'd get a smooth solution for your business. Finally, I'd say Invision Power is providing all tools and API/function-access to allow deep integration, but I would never demand providing out-of-the-box plugins for other systems from IPS. Kind regards, Matthias
  12. Can IP Content really be used in place of WordPress?

    You may try out IPBWI for WordPress allowing fully synced comment section between WordPress and IP.board. Old WP comments are still displayed on WP (without syncing them to IP.board), but new comments will be saved within IP.board and displayed on WordPress. That feature also includes full control of displaying that comment list through admin panel and theme files.
  13. Integration between IPB and a website

    Yeah, of course IPBWI is still maintenanced and I'd say IPBWI is still a popular addon, Brandon. ;) Everything the topic author asked can be done rapidly via IPBWI or through IP.board framework directly. IPBWI actually uses parts of IP.board framework as much as possible to avoid redundant code for tasks already done. There are many users integrating IPBWI within IP.board itself because they are more comfortable with my API than with IP.board's framework - but that's a question of taste, only. See documentation page of IPBWI or live examples for more information about the possibilities.
  14. IP.Content "Databases" vs. "wp-types" (Wordpress)

    That's correct. I'm the author of IPBWI / IPBWI for WordPress and the reason for the high prices actuallky is the effort for keeping up compatibility between IP.board and WP. I'm maintanencing the IP.board bridge since many years and have customers counting on that for their business. I've made many custom development work based on WordPress and IP.board. I'd still say the best combination on a long run would be WordPress <- IPBWI -> IP.board. I'd not recommend buddypress when you want to manage a big community, you'll depend on many third party plugins to get about half of IP.board features by loosing much performance, stability and flexibility. Additionally, IP.board is still one of the best performance and security optimized bulletin softwares on the market - combined with IPBWI containing the most flexible API-bridge. Woocommerce is a great basic shopping plugin for WordPress and with IPBWI for WordPress it is possible to show WordPress widgets in IP.board sidebar. I thought about integration of IP.nexus features into my API to make IP.nexus features (e.g. create new product, cart view, list products, product details, add products to cart, order etc.), because I think that would be a nice benefit for users of IPBWI and IPBWI for WordPress. Unfortunately, there's currently a too small usergroup using IP.nexus asking for that, so I decided spending my development time to more requested features. Additionally, IP.nexus is far away from a user friendly frontend per default, pricing options are very limited and there is a lack of optimization based on different countries. I'd not recommend IP.nexus for a retail shop selling products online. But as small solution for selling digital goods or for member promotion, IP.nexus could be a good decision. Finally, I'd say it makes sense to combine different specialized software through an API. You should make sure that there is ongoing support for all applications you plan to use. Summarized: IP.board is the best choice for your community WordPress is the best choice for your content being published Both, Woocommerce and IP.nexus actually are very limited and far away from an enterprise eCommerce system like oxid eSales or shopware.
