    Wow, so grasping at straws here. First, people have no problem investing in XF in its current state. Second, are they? Really? Care to wager on how that "suing to the ground" works out?


    As discussed it is ALREADY a part of the core product, not just implemented in the same way, so you are actually arguing against what has already been discussed. It's obvious you know nothing about what you speak when you say, "You can really only put so much into the base framework of a larger application like Invision platform before you start to regress optimizations"

    Yep, or dominator.

    It's not like you are buying a non upgradeable beta. If you think you will be buying at some point, why would you NOT buy a $100 license?

    I would imagine ipb die hards will scoff (as always). I have full confidence in that development team and have trusted my site with that team for most of its 8 year existence.

    Buying.

    No worries. I'm just saying, you want something that works well and looks good, you need to change it, regardless on how it gets done. Are there many IPB driven sites that use what is currently shipped? I haven't looked around.

    The poll in itself used to be a pretty big thing at my site. Now that I use IPB where guests cannot vote in them (unless they are also given permission to post) and I don't feature one on the front page due to previous reasons stated - the polls on my site are dead.

    Just sayin.

    Yes I know. It should be changed to be able to use that OR the latest poll, just to automate things. And it may be the same block, but it's really ugly man.

    Blocks
    As stated in the blog:

    You may want to redesign the default 'Who's Online Block'. The current one is rather fugly. The Welcome block is also rough. Latest Poll block should be redesigned far appearance as well and also be configurable to use just the latest poll or an admin desired url. Be nice to have a decent looking stats block as well.

    Yes, I know--you make them look however blah, blah. Just a default one that functions and looks good would be a nice thing default..

    Sounds good.

  9. glorify added a post in a topic Why I love IP.Content   

    This may sound strange but here goes.

    As much as I don't like the ease of IPC, the video gallery I have added to the site is really a favorite feature of my IPB site. Added this video 6 days ago and it has been viewed almost 1250 times and has been Liked 28 times on Facebook.

    To be frank, IPB is not meeting my expectations as a forum and my daily registered members on the site has dropped about 30-40% per day since switching from vb. I am looking to already switch after about 5 months.

    But

    The thing that I complain loudest about (IPC) may end up being the thing that keeps me with IPB. Hopefully the registered users return.

    I am wondering if you could do something with this Ajax pagination script. Maybe you can call 1-10 in one div, posts 11-20 in the next, etc.

    I could do it but I wouldn't know how to call each set of posts :(
  12. glorify added a post in a topic Caaan we get a tweet button?   



    You may, but the subject matter of my boards is huge on Twitter. Once again, if you DON'T WANT IT DON'T USE IT.

    Damn I swear. Some of you all just b*tch to see yourself b*tch. Such a shame.

    With replies like that, no wonder there isn't as much participation here as there should be.

    I don't think everyone agrees, and you waiting for an easier to use system would say it was failing for you.

    It is not easy to use for noobs. Therein lies the main issue.

    That's fricking funny dude lol.

    1. Looks like there's a strong group of modders from .org already posting there. I wouldn't think there will be a 1 or 2 year catch up time frame for anything. I would assume the mod community will be smaller than vb, but larger than IPB within the early months of gold release.

    2. Being "different" won't cut it, I agree, but being easy to use, mod, style, and backed WILL cut it.

    3. I am not sure an Alpha version of anything is going to blow any established software away anyway. Why not compare when it's gold?


    I switched my VB board to IPB. IPB is miles behind VB in terms of add ons and community support. As far as the direction of future versions between VB and IPB, IPB was the smart choice because of core product, however it still lacks many basic things my members were used to. You get a company with great core software, great support from the company AND the community, plus a great modding community, then that's the software that will win the eventual fight for share.
