Portal

2 Things really of which one I don't think you can do anything about,

1) I think if you have the portal as the default app and try to use the new ip community app it renders the app unusable will there be a way to get around this?


2) Is there a way to remove avatars from the ipb mobile skin portal look.

1. Could you elaborate on what you mean by "new ip community app"
2. ACP > Look & Feel Tab > IP.Board Mobile > Portal > articles.

Find and Remove:

<a href='{parse url="showuser={$topic['member_id']}" seotitle="{$topic['members_seo_name']}" template="showuser" base="public"}' class='ipsUserPhotoLink left ipsPad_half'><img src='{$topic['pp_small_photo']}' alt='{$r['members_display_name']} {$this->lang->words['photo']}' class='ipsUserPhoto ipsUserPhoto_medium' /></a>



Save. Next version, I'll be looking at a mobile specific skin.

Thanks for the edit,

As for the mobile app, IPB launched and new Iphone/Android application to view communities with only if you have the portal as the default app it says "The forum is trying to redirect you to an external page, would you like to open this page?" Which doesn't actually work anyway. I'm thinking now there wouldn't actually be a way to fix this unless maybe it would ignore the portal and go directly to the forums if you were using the app or a mobile device.

Mike, is there anyway to use this in a specific forum and only that forum? I would like one of my forum areas to be this portal, and the rest of the forums to be the normal thread based areas. I have a specific category that it is going to go into if that helps.

How do you add the article listing form IP.Content in the portal? Is there documentation on how the portal can be used or how the blocks can be created?




IP.Content blocks can still be added into IPB templates. If you open ACP > Look & Feel Tab > select skin > Portal > skeletonTemplate. You'll still be able to add your ip.content created blocks in there.

I really haven't had a chance to looking into the mobile app in great detail but will look at this for the next version. If you set the default app to an IPS app that supports the mobile app, does it still produce that error?

Have you considered a redirect forum? Could redirect to the portal when ever your preferred forum is viewed.

Hi hoping you can help.

I managed to add the portal but because there were some errors i thought it may be because i had not followed Step 2: If you've upgraded from IPB 3.0 or 3.1 and this is not a fresh install of IPB 3.3, you will need to remove the previous portal files and plugins

So I removed them.....then it couldnt find the portal....so I uninstalled it all and reinstalled it but now it cannot find the portal at all when I upload it

I am thinking maybe I have made a big mistake by removing the files mentioned in step 2?

custom blocks werent showing at all and anything i added just stayed to the left.....



also some of the existng blocks were just showing up as text




I'll need to take a look on your end, no idea what could be.


I'd like to know something, is there a way to convert all WordPress Posts + Pages to this Portal?


It's because we have thousands of Posts and hundreds of Pages on WordPress.




The Portal doesn't really have posts of it's own, it displays posts and topics from the forums. You'll probably have more luck looking for a Wordpress to IPB converter of some sort. And then in the Portal just select the forums you want to show in the portal.

I completely removed it and cant seem to re-add it at all now.



Do you want me to message you the info so you can access the site?




Yeah if you can pm me your ftp/acp login details I'll take a look.


Nice and easy to install, and easy to use. But I only have it on its own page. Is there a setting to integrate it so it appears on my forum and blog pages, and not just on its own tab?




The Portal mostly brings other areas of the forum into 1 page but what kind of integration would you like to see in?

I'm after something that will let me add sidebars/blocks that will appear on EVERY page on my site, like this:
http://www.amaranthia.com/modules/newbb/

No matter where you go on the site, the contents on the left and right are always visible.

I also need something that will let you set permissions on what groups can view blocks, and it doesn't look like that functionality is here.

Just completed the transition from our shared hosting provider to our vps provider. Nameservers were redirected exactly 24 hours ago. Everything seems to have propogated.

Keep in mind that I had been locally testing the board on my browser by changing the settings on my desktop 'notes' to include the ip address and the domain name ... so I have been carefully looking at the new installation for 2 weeks.

Now that the propogation is complete and the view is 'live' the portal is completely vanished. All you see is Michael's Global Message above and nothing else. I have clicked on rebuild furl cache and also rebuild applications and module cache.

No luck.

Any ideas? I submitted a support ticket.

Thanks,

Brian

By default app, I meant your visit yoursite.com/forums/ and it loads the portal by default instead of the forums.

How's your skin cache, tried rebuilding skin cache? Do you have portal template bits in acp > look & feel tab > select skin. Either the Portal template group or any template bits below?

oh, okay, yes, the portal is set as the default landing page for our ip board.

got this from Alan:

Hello,



Unfortunately the Portal product is no longer developed or supported by IPS. It was discontinued some time ago and replaced by our

IP.Content add-on

which now does all the functions that Portal used to handle.



All development and support of Portal were taken over by a 3rd-party developer so I'm afraid that you will need to

speak with them

for further support with this.



Many thanks,


Alan.



You would think they would help if it was still a legacy product on 3.14 ....! :sad:

Yes, tried rebuilding skin cache on all skin sets. No luck.

Yes, I do have the Portal template group - see attached.
