  1. Snagit..

    Not sure I'll get any answer to this but here goes. I am testing Snagit by Techsmith. There is no way I can copy or reproduce an image into the forum using google. FF, Safari, I.E are no problem but google is a no go. Has anybody used this and been successful ? strange question I know but just maybe.....
  2. Where's a good website to find themes?

    http://www.ibthemes.com a wide selection of pre made themes, also themes to order.
  3. IPS hosting

    Thanks Rhett, I am not aiming for a large membership and this seems ideal. I do have a dormant (although paid) license extra if I need to start another so this seems ideal. I 'll use the weekend to make a list of any questions (if any) One does spring to mind though, as I have mentioned my present domain is on a shared hosting, I take it I have to renew the domain annually ? would that be to the present hosting ? Many thanks..
  4. IPS hosting

    I am thinking of changing to IPB hosting. I have done some searching but although it may be there cannot get the right question/answer. I already have the community suite ie board,blog,gallery chat and really is all I need (does not really matter if others are there). What restrictions would I have placed on an IPB hosted board. Can I still use addons from the market place and add new themes ? Would I still have to pay for 6 month support. I have a domain on a shared hosting, can I transfer that domain (did not purchase it outright) It will be a fresh install so nothing to transfer. What restrictions is important. Thats all I can think of at present. I do not want a " big board" so this seems a 'maybe' better option. I know the sales office opens Monday but would be nice if I could get some info before then to mull over the weekend. Thanks in anticipation
  5. [HQ] Forum Icons

    I can understand what you are saying but I can assure you that no editing was done on either the IPboard or the many other skins I have and they work perfectly. I'll do a skin edit shortly.
  6. [HQ] Forum Icons

    This works perfectly on my test forum (without any edits and on all skins), just opening another forum using the same settings. The Icon appears in the ACP but not on the forum..strange (and pity) BTW both on 3.4.5 :sad:
  7. IP.Board 4.0 Wishlist

    Bit of an unusual request. :smile: Some talented orators to create a video guide for the absolute beginners (potential members) in the basic operations of the IPB board and core applications.
  8. [HQ] Forum Icons

    I'll just ignore the screens folder. Uploaded everything else and used your attachments to update the skin edits (great job) my stupid computer will not highlight one or ? lines, it just highlights the lot !! so your attachments solved that problem. Thanks very much for your help :thumbsup: all appears well now.
  9. [HQ] Forum Icons

    Thanks for the reply, not had time yet to try this out (apart from a limited amount of time last night.) So basically you have to do skin edits whatever to appear on the forum ? this is what confused me Just one other point..what do we do with the screen folder Thanks again :thumbsup:
  10. [HQ] Forum Icons

    Only just seen this and is what I am after. On a quick look in the ACP it states that if you want the photo next to the icon then no file edits required, is this still correct ? Short of time at present but loaded a photo that appears in the ACP but not on forum (hence my question) one other point is what are we required to do with the screens folder ? It's 2 am here so will have another try tomorrow.
  11. Just for info, With 3.4 all you need is the key (once you have registered) Check with /ips_kernel/classcaptchaplugin to make sure that keycaptcha php is installed.
  12. Quiz System

    .....You must have moved to Spain to :lol: Even the dial up in the bad old days were quicker than here
  13. Quiz System

    (not showing quiz questions untill ready) Mikey, I have tried your code change on page 5 (this forum) and the code is slightly different, have you changed it ? I changed to what you suggested and it still shows the questions. I just cancelled your code and inserted the suggested code..hope that was right :sad: (This is all i can find now) <ol> <foreach loop="$questions as $question"> <li><h4 class="rounded">{$question['question_name']}</h4><li> </foreach> </ol> ........................................................................................................................................................................................... (your suggestion) <ol> <foreach loop="$questions as $question"> <h4 class="rounded">{$question['question_name']}</h4> <foreach loop="$question['answers'] as $answer"> <li><input type="radio" name="answer_{$answer['question_id']}" id="answer_{$answer['question_id']}" class="input_radio" value="{$answer['question_id']}"> <label for="answer_{$answer['question_id']}">{$answer['question_name']}</label></li> </foreach> </foreach> </ol> Replace that with whatever you want. For example: <p>To view the questions, please take this quiz</p>
  14. IPB vs Facebook

    For your topic my first impression you have a very impressive forum. My dealings in the past have been with much older and less 'savvy' members. IMO IPB is a first class forum board, but as mentioned above FB and the likes are simplicity itself. I spent a lot of time with "how to" guides, even made videos to help guests and members to understand the the layout, use the message board, gallery (quite complicated to beginners) and the various apps that are available for members. I'm sure that when peeps understand, you become a more attractive alternative to FB. I love sport but because I did not understand the rules of some, I gave them a miss. Cricket was a good example. I took time to understand and now am glued to most TV games. I have an adopted (very large) Mexican family. I know of only one who uses FB for anything else other than family and friends, so although only a small example I am not sure that FB will/or does stop those from joining a well thought out and easily explained forum. I do notice that you have quite a few protected forums, there may be a good reason for that, however personally I would open the help desk, let guests begin to understand how the forum operates and (they may be there) add guides on how to use the forum. Hasta luego :thumbsup:
  15. First spam PM - next steps?

    Same here ! Not sure how it works here but would assume that the spammer must be a registered member to PM members ? Just deleted it but interested in the answer.
