  1. Jinkler added a post in a topic AdSense Alternatives   

    Over the past 15 years I've been running forums, Adsense beats them all for plain banner advertising. There are some companies in the UK who are nearly competitive for me for over 2.5 million impressions per month across all my sites, but Adsense is still the boss!

    If you find a way, let us know :)
  5. Jinkler added a post in a topic IP.Content is little complicated and not friendly using   

    IP.Content is a massive uphill learning curve. I've been there, and struggled up the hill. Luckily at the time I had plenty of time to learn. Now that I know what it can do, it is bloody powerful.

    EG:

    It runs my homepage: http://www.talkford.com/page/index.html

    It runs my car reviews: http://www.talkford.com/page/ford_reviews/_/ford-mondeo-reviews/mondeo-mk3/

    It runs my wiki (still being built - but a wiki CAN be done via IP.Content quite easily): http://www.talkford.com/page/fordwiki/fordwiki.html

    It runs my dealership reviews: http://www.talkford.com/page/Dealership%20Reviews/_/east-anglia-ford-dealerships/roy-chapman-limited-berkhamsted-r339

    The biggest problem you'll find, if you're a non-coder like me (i'm a bodger and tinkerer) is actually finding people who are competent enough to create what you want. They are very far and few between, either too busy or too unreliable. A basic database is easy to setup and run, but if you want it customising to make something like my car reviews, that's where it gets a little bit more challenging. Although saying that, after much practise and bodging, it does become quite easy, as the templates are just a mix of HTML and some IPB stuff. The problem being if you're new, is knowing what the IPB stuff is! I've been playing with it for about 3 years now, and I'm still learning stuff every week with it.

  8. Jinkler added a post in a topic Please, I'm BEGGING: Better search for non-public hosted forum -- any ideas/suggestions?   

    Easiest way is to use this hook:

    '?do=embed' frameborder='0' data-embedContent>>

    It over-rides your search engine with a google custom search engine.
  9. Jinkler added a post in a topic Tutorials for IP.Content?   

    Does this tutorial still exist? I tried looking for it a while ago but couldn't find it.
  10. Jinkler added a post in a topic Client Centre - Please add Community Name to the list of Paid Invoices!   

    Yes please, I keep meaning to mention this myself.
  11. Jinkler added a post in a topic Suggestion - Resize article image functionality   

    Never mind, fixed, was a folder permission issue :)
  12. Jinkler added a post in a topic Suggestion - Resize article image functionality   

    Wish I had come across this topic earlier, have been looking for a solution to this problem for ages!

    Anyway, gone to try this out, and it's not working for me. This is what I'm using:
    <img src="/thumbnails/timthumb.php?src=/uploads/{$record['field_205']}" /> I just get an image not found error.

    Is there something wrong with my code above, or should I be looking elsewhere for the problem?

    Thanks for the link. Members on one of my sites have been requesting something similar. It also integrates with IPB:
