  1. There are so many important issues IPS hasn't fixed for many years that bringing up something like this... especially with the mess that is 4.0 is pointless. You are using a super high resolution display that the average person still does not use. Factor in Mobile Devices and there really is nothing you can do. All Browsers display these images this way because of the CSS Styling... which you are always welcome to change.
  2. ​Looks like you'll be forced to deal with Mobile since they developed the 4.0 skin this way. Your only other option is submit a bug report and have them fix this because that resolution while being low shouldn't be Mobile, even if there are Mobile Devices that have that resolution or higher!
  3. Just tested it with content 2.3.6 with board 3.4.7 and it works so far no problems! :thumbsup:
  4. The Welcome Message doesn't work because it displays itself to members who are logged in offering sign and registration links...
  5. Life is very interesting... in the end, some of your greatest pains, become your greatest strengths.

  6. Heres an interesting suggestion..... If the main administrator of the board wants to setup an Admin CP for certain Staff then said administrator would find more use if these menus could be customized per staff group depending on how the main administrator would see fit. This would be much better than what this feature is currently offering because simply put, this is like bookmarks and staff groups should have their own admin control panel dedicated to their tasks because at the end of the day... explaining to each staff member to reorganize their menu is just silly. Cmon Invision Power Services, think outside the box!
  7. At the very bottom there is an UP Arrow to scroll up the page. With some modification, you can have this button/link float at the bottom of the page. As far as the search functionality, It's been a mess for years. Until they completely revise how it works, It's going to continue to be useless.
  8. The point is to have Profile Privacy. We understand that information is public in other areas of the site and that does not matter. If members wanted something like that, it'd be called Member Privacy, not Profile Privacy! Invision Power Services should Implement these features, Facebook is the perfect example in comparison and 3rd party modifications to this are simply not the answer, especially not long term!
  9. +1 to this suggestion, would be very comfortable to give restricted admins specific hook settings.
  10. Please take as long as required. :)
  11. You can safely upgrade your Subscriptions Application to the latest version because Michael is no longer updating this application and has given it over to another author.
  12. Something to think about... if you have any kind of Donation Application or Modification or even have Nexus... your secondary group can be updated and maintained based on your activity on the site (donation or purchase).
  13. That is exactly the confusion new members get when they don't validate, login, and go... "huh, I can't do anything." They obviously don't see the red resend validation link and only a few clue in to check their mailbox and actually validate. The best way is to not offer them any type of access if they are validating and force them to complete the process. You can always put up introduction text where needed to direct them properly and explain validation. There is a really modification to help with Validation: (IPT33) Validating Message 1.0.0
  14. It's found on the top right corner (if you are using the default skin) followed by a green box background. You can create a pretty picture, center it on your homepage and link to your registration page so people who refuse to look at the top corner will easily find the registration link. Theres also the option of moving the current link/box but the first option would be easiest.
  15. I've confirmed that this feature hasn't been changed and still redirects via login.
  16. When it comes to Skin Templates, the fact that you can get highly customized IPB Skins for prices under $50 are all a steal! Your complaining that once a new version is released, the upgrade for that should also be free since you've paid for it... however the reality is, the amount of effort and time that actually goes into the development of said skin hardly covers the asking price, or even a renewal price. Obviously my idea of skins and other developers are different and there are lots of customizations and features most aren't even aware of. When 4.0 is going to be released, a lot of time and effort will be put into creating and converting the older skin and all of that should be given out for free? There is a reason why the skin market is not popular. They don't get rewarded for nearly half the work they do and when you really think about it, half of the best skins are pirated so where does that leave the author! The pricing for skins is ridiculously low for the amount of time, inspiration and effort really needed to develop a skin. Paying the same $50 or lower price for a renewal that will work with a totally new version of IPB is more than fair. The bottom line is, 4.0 is something noone can guarantee because they don't know what the changes will be exactly, will their be new bugs, and will the conversion process go smoothly... so they don't want to shoot themselves in the foot and promise an upgrade, especially for free. Every time a new series version of IPB comes out, its always the same discussion on the forums and once things settle down, people continue to move on. I still have IP.Boards I manage that are running on the 2.3 Series and have had no reason to upgrade!
  17. Basically, the code shown in the forum listings of the IP.Board skin will have to be modified to have an IF Statement to not display anything if value is set to "0". Or... you could just put eight zeros and call it a day? I doubt any thread will have that many replies.... and if it does, make it ten digits.
  18. Although Arrow Chat is extremely different. I've been using it for a long time and I can say, its definitely an amazing alternative and works well. I still use Shoutbox because the original author has been long time gone and the product still works as it should. I haven't been upgrading to the latest version (dont know whos managing it now or what they've done to it, don't really care), What I know is it works and I'm surprised to see people not using it anymore just because there is no official support. FYI, I've never needed support for that Application since day one and if you know how long that thing has existed... then you know if it works, you can use it. :P

    [IF] IPB Shoutbox

    Probably lack of settings and permissions... make sure everything is configured.

    I don't see how anyone can whine because of what price they paid for this. Also, I still use my Paid version which for my own reasons I think is better.
  21. Residing in the United States is the biggest disappointment to this position and unfortunately would be the reason why I would never be able to apply.
  22. I've been reading so much about all this new stuff that apparently is supposed to help make everything easier that seeing at-least one picture would give me something to actually look at. I know from previous times, people have always argued that things should be better and there are always proper responses to that.. All I'd like is to see what they've been talking about.
  23. Less people are paying Google for their bullfaeces service, that's number 1, which clearly isn't mentioned in that topic...
