  1. I have a forum where that would actually be the case. How about if you could link the uploads of a forum to a particular category or album in the gallery (as a forum setting), so that you can set the appropriate permissions there? I would like to force the images into the gallery, because I feel that is the appropriate area to have them, so I would disable or hide option to not link the image to the gallery.  By the way, can't a user set the permissions in its gallery itself?
  2. Make using attachments more user friendly

    @chilihead has some nice suggestions in that other topic on how to deal with not having the gallery app.
  3. I think these two posts above summarize quite well and in good detail how I would think the integration would be done elegantly.  +1 (or more if I could give more )
  4. Show us your IPB 4 sites!

    Looks good!
  5. I've just installed the gallery app to see how this could work out for my forums. I have a lot of topics that are 'what did you eat today' or 'show your new purchases' in which members post pictures. Asking them to first upload that to a gallery, then go back to the topic and insert it as an image is just too much hassle if you look at it from a user perspective. Of course as admins, we would want them to do that, but reality is that people are used to post image links or just add a photo from their smart phone and dump it in a topic. I would really like to be able to curate this content (even have a setting that would allow me to download images from external links and add them to my own media database). For instance to be able to display a masonry grid with all images posted in the forum. Showing off this content is a great visual and appealing way to show off forum content, which may then again drive visitors etc. I am not sure whether the gallery app in its current form is the way to go for me (at least, I do not see the use case), now that the forum topics are really used as the content container. I think this is a great topic, looking forward to hear your views on gallery / image content curation and the forum software.
  6. Hashtaging

      For those interested - Simple Tag Management is now available for IPS4
  7. Simple Tag Management

    If you are looking for the IPS4 version, please be referred to the new version here:    
  8. Simple Tag Management 4

    Version 1.0.3


    Let your members help you with tagging your content! The plugin will show a button next to the 'follow' button in the topic view and the gallery image view, so you don't have to edit the first post or the image details for adding tags. Clicking on the 'edit tags' button will show a drop down menu in which you can easily add tags to the topics or images, or delete previously added tags. What others said about this plugin (on version 3.x): "[...] the most useful hook I've encountered so far [...]" "This is exactly what I need, no more,no less.  [...] it [...] is brilliant." Features Works similar to the standard IPS tagging system You can set which member groups may tag and/or prefix Supported apps: Forums (Topics), Gallery (Images) Install Just install the .xml file and it works. If not, just drop me a PM.


  9. bring back old good support

    Yes, that's what I did, and I had excellent support from IPS in doing this.  First, copied the entire database to a separate test environment to test the utf converter, it did break some things and I pointed IPS to it, but with no hurry - which was fine because it was a test environment anyway. Then they fixed the issue, we ran another test on the test environment and when that was good, IPS actually offered to run the conversion for me on the production site, taking away stress and headaches. It took a while (couple of hours) for the conversion to complete, but I was able to announce that, so no surprises for the members, and it is a big board on a VPS with limited CPU availability. Now I'm ready to do the same process for my 3.4 > 4.1 upgrade. But overall, I had great, very responsive support from IPS. Thanks a lot Josh!  
  10. I like this suggestion. Is there a known workaround for this, when you're only editing a part of a Content Item (tags, in my case?)
  11. Hashtaging

    Actually I have been working on it this weekend. So far I have it working so that admins and moderators with the right permissions can add tags easily. If you want, I can release the new version as is (while working on further upgrades).
  12. Mobile view and last post column

    Yes, I think so too.
  13. Simple Tag Management

    I've been waiting with updating any apps, until 4.1, may be that I find some time during the christmas holidays...
  14. Show us your IPB 4 sites!

    That is actually a theme setting:Customization > Themes > Edit (pencil icon) > Custom (tab) > Forum Layout (setting) > Set to grid view
