  1. 4.0.0 Speed test

    My score:Mobile: 44/100Desktop: 54/100I assume everyone using standard IPB (except themes) would get the same "recommendation" from google to optimize the site.
  2. Downloads List

    In IP Downloads, I want to display a soundcloud-hosted song for each file in the list, but it only shows up as a link until I click on the actual file.  I want the soundcloud stream to be visible for all files shown in list view.  How can I achieve this?Here is an example of how the stream should show up in the list:
  3. Downloads and FTP

    Hmm. Thing is, some of the downloads would be 'paid' items . I want to protect the files by only allowing access from the download button.  So it seems the only way to do that is store on the dedicated server...right?
  4. Downloads and FTP

    In v3, I had an issue with using FTP for the 'Downloads' FTP credentials were shown in the url.   How has this been addressed in v4?My scenario is running the site on a dedicated server, but storing the download content on a shared server via FTP.
  5. Modify 3.4 Now or After 4.0 Is Released?

    I notice Ehren from IPBFocus is offering upgrades to many of his themes. He seems to working very hard. I also own a 3.x license, and decided not to launch my site until 4.0. Its a tough decision, but I'll suffer a while for future sanity. I don't like tinkering on the server side much.
  6. IPB becoming a SimpleScript

    I've tried this upgrader, but I keep getting permission errors even after changing permissions. I also checked the permission in ACP, all looks fine. BTW, there are commercial products in SimpleScript, Fantastico, AMPPS, and other similar script managers.
  7. IPB becoming a SimpleScript

    CPanel and Plesk can be configured with a SimpleScript ( option that seamlessly installs and updates with minimal effort. I've used this for wordperss, Joomla, and other forum software. What are the prospects of IPB getting on that list?
  8. Same File In Multiple Categories

    ip.downloads already needs a huge change to its code...might as well add this functionality along the way.
  9. Browsing the Catalog (currently a pain)

    Perhaps a static category list with a jquery sub list that is scrollable and updates more when reaching the bottom? Selecting a particular product could explode its details rather than loading a new page outside the list. That's a concept tha comes to mind. Anything but flash!
  10. Bulk Management of files

    I just posted a similar thread about the challenges users face when going to large catalogs. It's discouraging to many visitors
  11. I only have 26 files in my downloads app, but it seems to be a pain for visitors to navigate through the catalog. My fear is that when I reach 100 files, no one will bother to explore them all. When I'm in a file (like ), there is no option to got to "next" or "previous" file. More clicks than desired are necessary to display a few files. Has this been a discussion among developers?
  12. I'd like to see this post promoted to a FAQ for iP.Content :thumbsup:
  13. let search include download tags

    Please add this as an option. Here's an example through my challenge:U have music loops for download, and a download file can span multiple styles, so instead of restricting to category, I let users add tags. When someone wants some slow paced loops, they can type "slow" and get all related files. Also there are so many genres I don't want users to get lost in the category list. Instead they can type rock, fusion, jazz, or whatever the author used as a tag. It would be nice to have an option to set the search combination as default.
  14. (M34) Videos System

    This is a great application! I hope to see many new features and skinning options. Great work!
  15. IP.Downloads not so great SEO

    IP.SEO working sweet on my board. But then again my offerings are probably somewhat unique. But some simple searching has my board on all the 1st page results. My board is only a few months old with <90 users. Haven't even marketed the site yet.
