  1. Using Font Icons

    Ive been trying to change all of my icons in my theme to font icons and I keep running into situations where the image files are nearly hard coded into IPS. A suggestion I have for IPS4 is the ability to use font icons for anything and everything. Speaking of, Ive spent a couple hours trying to get the rating stars as a font icon and I can get it all working except for the blue stars. The javascript for this is over my head.
  2. Introducing IPS CDN Service

    This looked so promising! I went to enable it but now it says "The IPS CDN service has been suspended". Hopefully you can get it running again in the future. Great work!
  3. 4.0 - Advertisements

    Although the fad is dying, I would still like to see support for flash banners. http://community.invisionpower.com/topic/352828-feature-request-allow-swf-advertisements/?p=2439696
  4. Feature Request: Allow SWF Advertisements

    Another good idea if you want to use flash banners is to provide an image fallback if the user doesnt have flash installed or is on a mobile device. This is the html code I used when creating my flash banner: <object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" data="http://site.com/public/banners/banner.swf" width="728" height="90" id="ad"><param name="allowScriptAccess" value="sameDomain"><param name="allowFullScreen" value="false"><param name="movie" value="http://site.com/public/banners/banner.swf"><param name="quality" value="high"><param name="wmode" value="opaque"><param name="bgcolor" value=""><param name="flashvars" value="clickTAG=http://site.com/index.php?app=nexus&module=promotion&section=adclick&id=2"><a href="http://site.com/index.php?app=nexus&module=promotion&section=adclick&id=2" target="_blank"><img src=" " width="728" height="90" alt="NoFlash" /></a></object> Its not a bad workflow since you really should have an image fallback anyway, to create a separate banner that is an image to count the clicks.
  5. Feature Request: Allow SWF Advertisements

    I also think this needs to be supported. There is a way you can work around it and still count all of the clicks from the swf file. Its a simple solution but all you need to do is create 2 banners of the same thing, one being swf (id1) and the other being an image (id2). Inside the swf file you just create a normal link but point to the id2 ad and each click will be registered there. Mark, this should be easy to ad to nexus, just allow us to embed the flash file as if it were an image and we can put the appropriate link embedded in the flash file. This should count both impressions and clicks! :) Here is the swf file code: button.onRelease = function() { getURL("http://site.com/index.php?app=nexus&module=promotion&section=adclick&id=2", "_blank"); };

  14. IP.Content 2.3 Dev Update: Nexus Blocks

    [quote name='bfarber' timestamp='1326809522'] I would think you could do this now by simply putting the appropriate HTML into your page. This is not something the feed block would facilitate in any event. Thanks, currently you cant put a direct link to add 1 or multiple items to the cart without having the link generated with php to include the "key".
  15. IP.Content 2.3 Dev Update: Nexus Blocks

    Wow, this sounds interesting. I have a question related to this. Will we be able to embed "add to cart" buttons inside our IP-Content pages now? This way we can put a link inside our article that will take them straight to their cart, instead of to the product page.
