  1. Tonka IPB Skin

    Hi again, im running the skin for 3.2.3 and its fixed (version 1,1 i believe it is), ive tried the new fluid one but it doesn't work on my board and i wont be upgrading for some time yet, so i was just wondering if it was possible to make 1.1 version fluid too. Sorry for posting a support topic in here but i dont know where the support topic is for this. Any help appreciated.

  6. Improved Skin Generator

    [quote name='wingman23' date='08 October 2010 - 02:33 AM'] While i do love the skin generator, ive noticed tonight that while making a skin, telling the skin maker i have blogs added. When i install the skin, it all looks great until you open somebodys blog, and you find it doesnt generate that part of the header in a person blog where the title is, and the green book is (in the default skin) it just falls short and doesnt replace the top left hand part of the banner in a members blog... The rest works lovely, just that bit... Just an Update for anybody with the same problem, you can manually fix this by copying the blank_logo from the resources folder in the new generated template and uploading it to your server folder " Public>style_images> your new template folder>blog... Replace the blank_logo with the new one from the resources folder of the new generated template...

  8. IP.Board 3.1.0 Dev Update: Improved Facebook Integration

    [quote name='.Wolfie' date='10 February 2010 - 02:36 PM'] You mean 400 million users, as of Feb 4th. With 400 million users, if only 1% of 1% (0.0001) of them visit the site, that's 40,000 visitors and if only 1% of those visitors join up, that's 400 new members. With those 400 new members, you might get another 40,000 visitors with some of those joining up. Here is the source of the 400 million users reference... http://blog.facebook...id=183787954620 well i was thinking only in the uk, but i was wrong, there are 19 million users in the uk alone. Wow at 400 million users worldwide though.... :whistle: best start tweaking my server a bit then so i can catch up :thumbsup:
  9. IP.Board 3.1.0 Dev Update: Improved Facebook Integration

    [quote name='Matt' date='09 February 2010 - 04:32 PM'] Ok.. The point of adding Facebook integration was two fold: 1) It lowers the barrier for registration. Some people are put off by filling in a long form and waiting for activation. If they can click a button and log in with their Facebook username and password then they are encouraged to do so and participate in YOUR community. You get more members, more posts and more eyes on your content. This is good for everyone. 2) It helps promote your site via status updates and sharing links. See number #1 for the benefit of doing this. Saying "it's just making the board a Facebook extension" is a little short sighted, as is saying that it is not a forum feature and it will not benefit you. You are welcome to ignore Facebook and continue to have nothing to do with it, but in doing so you are missing out on traffic and promotion. It's your choice as always. We are not pandering to the social networking scene. We are simply adding tools that enable you to make the best use of today's websites. There is no compunction to use them. As for forum only features, the last few blogs have been about ad management, soft delete, SEO and more - all very useful "forum only" enhancements. members who complain about these great facilities of IPB i think dont understand... You simply cant compete with facebook with its 4million users so you may as well use it and be part of it.. On the whole most of the new members you get are lazy and hate to fill in registration forms let alone have to go and sign in to their email to click on the confirmation link, so to give them a one click button is great, remember they have already gone through the confirmation stage on facebook and had their details checked so why worry, and if only one percent of those 4million users find something interesting on your site that they want to take part in, thats a lot of users for your site. :thumbsup:
