  1. QOTW: What is your favorite TV show?

    The 100, Madam Secretary, Designated Survivor, Scorpion! Old series - Me and the wife began watching all of The Office from start to finish. Almost done!
  2. New: Copy Topic to Database

    Look at the picture, you can add the posts as comments with a toggle.
  3. Really IPB...THIS SEARCH SxCKS !!!!

    After using the search settings changing to all content (instead of current location only) you get a ton of results. The default is search titles and content, you can narrow the search to topics by choosing "Advanced Search" and changing to search in titles for a more focused search. Also giving access to option like time since posted or author. It seems to work pretty good for me. Try again using suggestions and I think you will be satisfied with the results listed.
  4. New: Reactions

    Gonna have to periodically change the images so the reactions get really confusing on previous posts 😜
  5. It’s Impossible to live with this!

    But, what about the fact that you used -8700% of your storage? That doesn't bother you? Before you explained your problem that is what I thought you posted about.
  6. Some questions about mods

    Where is the info about this promotion?
  7. Month in Review - August 2015

    Did I miss the renewal promotion or is that in a few more days?
  8. When viewing from an iPad, the sections on the left take up too much space. If narrower, it would provide much more space to see the results on the right.
  9. 4.0 - Moderation Part 1: Setting up moderators

    You can already do that by making Primary group members, secondary group mod/admin. Then they still show up as a normal member, and not in the moderating team. On forum posts or in profile.
  10. Documentation?

    On software this expensive it shouldn't need to be the community making the basic documentation. The problem of not keeping the pdf documentation updated is simply unacceptable. The pdf should be just like most other pdf files with a table of contents by subject. Installation Forums Blogs Gallery Chat IP Content Downloads Admin CP Moderation Basic Skinning Basic Hook Creation And subsections for different areas including FAQ in each section. With minor updates you may need to make a couple changes. With major updates, screen shots changed, and descriptions of new features. Best practices section, and optimization guidance. To me this seems like a necessity. Pretty much any time I buy something more complex than a pencil I read all enclosed documentation to make sure I understand the full capabilities. Many could find it useful, and many would find a feature they didn't know about or completely understand and make their lives easier. I made highly customized PDF documentation for new users of different forums I'm administrator on including separate guides for moderators/new admins. This isn't a hard task, and doesn't require enough time to completely disregard the importance of easy documentation.
  11. Documentation?

    Creating and maintaining a PDF version of documentation would be ideal. Possibly 3 different ones for ease of distribution. One for normal members, one for Administrators, and one for programmers/skinners/add-on creators. It sounds like a lot of work, but it would be a heck of a lot easier for the customer trying to navigate these forums and pages that are very scattered around and frequently outdated.
  12. Search in members

    You can create custom profile entries, and have it viewable to only Admin/Global Mods. These can be things listed on the registration page for the person to enter, or periodically entered by Staff later when they have comments on the user.
  13. Search in members

    You can also if you set a member of a different group, such as a moderator or Administrator, and don't want anyone to see it, you can make the members Primary Group "Members", and secondary group(s) the one you want hidden, such as moderator & supporter. When someone looks at their profile it will only show the primary group, but that member will still have the other permissions. This should accomplish what you ask.
  14. Am I getting in too deep with ip board?

    Feel free to take a look around the IPB Demo. http://www.invisionpower.com/suite/demo.php You can take a look at how the Admin portion works with IPB. You will be able to figure it out very quickly. Everything is pretty organized and you can set everything up with minimal effort. Best of luck :) If you get stumped join the chat room within a few minutes normally a few others will join and normally very helpful.
  15. iArcade 1.3

    I would love to be able to see the ability to import 10 games into a category, or be able in the install game screen have a check box and a drop down menu that chooses which category to install the games to. Installing 1700 games one by one, and then manually editing each one to select the category is a bit tedious. Love the look of the games in the view games screens, way nicer and smaller than the ibparcade having absolutely massive boxes to look at each game. Looks terrible on it, lovely on yours.
