  1. you can add an image there by using the forum description / html as well http://community.invisionpower.com/topic/362059-i-want-to-add-category-advertising-spaces-example-in-post/page__hl__+forum%20+banner#entry2262795
  2. looks like your getting your peppermint in a twist the support is number one its the weekend still so relax help is on the way.
  3. If you have IPC just create a few block feeds for your calendar and run that to a admin only page, then in your categories forums create a admin only section and add a forum that redirects to that page. Once you have done that when you log in just hit the forum and it will redirect and pretty well anything you want is all listed up, you can add other things to the page as well and make it your own update center and you do also have the mod cp updates option as mentioned but this was is faster for most things. I also think there is a mod in downloads that looks after this as well ?

    Looks great thanks guys, I see this as maybe an option to also copy the news letter and create a pdf down loadable file and to put it onto file sharing groups as a way to further attract visitors to the site, not sure if that could work but it should not be to hard to convert.

    I would still love to see any example of this news letter if there is one available ?
  6. not sure if there are better ways but if you have content build a block to find any unapproved posts, then add it to a admin only page, from there finding any unaproved post anywhere on your board takes seconds. or you may need to file a mod request and have something built ?
  7. yes if you do not have many options or forums you will re post to make a multi mod for each one / other than that you would need a hook made to do what you wanted or just use the inbuilt normal move post option but this would not give you a auto reply and that would need to be done manual.
  8. @csm - let me be very clear - I love IP to bits, everywhere I go I preach IP, the people, the staff, the app, the support, everything about IP I love, There is also nothing wrong with saying it as it is unless we live in a state of dictatorship, So as it stands nothing was broken and there are no obvious reasons as to why these changes were made. A few more things to think about is first the bbcode editor, what a pig of a thing to use, it has to be the only bb editor of its type I have ever come across online, so used to flicking to editor mode and then ? o yuk get me out of here, what was that, but the logic of it is that to re implement what was taken away or the ability to add script, we now need to know how to build a bb code to add script back into the system. Once we have done that you need to cut and dissect any script to get it back into the system, and it is very important that you set the b code to admin only ( to prevent bad script being added ) to add the script back to what ever was an admin only area anyway. Same result with a now complicated method, that potentially opens up to more errors than before, I to hope it is just yep OK put back what was not broken we called that one wrong, if not a long way around for the same results and probably paying the first hook writer with a fix to put it back as it was.
  9. Well after discovering that I could no longer add script I was shovelled of here to this thread, while I read the words trying to shoehorn / I think many used this as a way to use an area to allow forum sponsorship or per forum advertising which is not available in any other "advertising system" as it does not exist. So givien the limitations of any exiting options / non third party options to do this, we now are penalised with the removal of a system that hurt no one, nor hurt anything, yet for no reason other than to complicate what was not complicated it has been removed with a unworkable option and is about as handy as buying a bucket with holes. You have to wonder why people fix things that are not broken, before it was a way that worked and allowed people to use it this way should they wish to do so, the whole premis of shoehorn is not justified if it were nobody would make a hook at at all, instead we would just use what we have. So instead of a real asset we now have a system that does not work and is broken / does not work (now until the next upgrade) so you left with banners you can not change or broken banners you need to pull down because of the errors. Lastly you now need to look at getting a hook or something made to put back the functionaboitity that was taken away for no real purpose reason or rhyme. It seems on one hand I am amazed by the sheer brilliance and thinking behind IP and it's direction, then keep slapping my head on other things. @ Michael / the response is in general to the frustrations of this decission not your post / reply.
  10. update for people reading the above <if test="cf_facebookfk:|:$f->raw_data['pf_key'] == 'facebookfk'"> < a class='url' href='hxxp://www.facebook.com/{$f->parsed}'>{$f->parsed}</a> < else /> * note the xx is just to remove the live link so please replace it with tt when adding the updates / locate this line in the middel ( before the </if> ) {$f->parsed} then add the update above and the end if below for the end if for each additional new contact you wish to add example <if test="cf_facebookfk:|:$f->raw_data['pf_key'] == 'facebookfk'"> < a class='url' href='hxxp://www.facebook.com/{$f->parsed}'>{$f->parsed}</a> < else /> {$f->parsed} </if>
  11. buddy the images are not helping me at all, if you do not want to post your url send a pm / other than that it is just guessing in the wind, sorry
  12. do you have a link as i am not really following this ? where is it showing the url twice ? are you adding just the name or the full url to the input field / it should be just the name / or extension so to speak ?
  13. Could you explain a little more the ic really does not tell me what or where any problem is
  14. Just adding the twiiter options as above field title > Twitter > fieldkey = twitterfk <if test="cf_twitterfk:|:$f->raw_data['pf_key'] == 'twitterfk'"> <a class='url' href='hxxp://twitter.com/#!/{$f->parsed}'>{$f->parsed}</a> <else /> </if> style_extra/cprofile_icons/twitter.gif -
  15. for you and those that follow first go to your acp / members / custom profile and you can one or more of the following fields field title > facebook > fieldkey = facebookfk field title > youtube > fieldkey = youtubefk and i also ran a email / message connection as well field title > email > fieldkey = emailfk once that is sorted follow the guide above to edit the ACP / "Profiles" -> customFieldGroup__contact once there you can add the following <if test="cf_youtubefk:|:$f->raw_data['pf_key'] == 'youtubefk'"> <a class='url' href='hxxp://www.youtube.com/{$f->parsed}'>{$f->parsed}</a> <else /> <if test="cf_facebookfk:|:$f->raw_data['pf_key'] == 'facebookfk'"> <a class='url' href='hxxp://www.facebook.com/{$f->parsed}'>{$f->parsed}</a> <else /> <if test="cf_emailfk:|:$f->raw_data['pf_key'] == 'emailfk'"> <a class='url' href=' hxxp://yoururl.com/index.php?app=members&module=messaging&section=send&do=form&from{$f->parsed}'>{$f->parsed}</a> <else /> * note with the email url replace yoururl.com with your url ** it is also important to add 3 ( or the required amount depemdant an how many fields were placed ) end if statements below (just add them before the others there) </if> </if> </if> then save and your done. lastly you can go into your cpanel and upload the images (supplied below) to this path > public_html/public/style_extra/cprofile_icons (check your image path and adjust if need be) go back into your ACP members / custom profile fields and add these image lines to profile icon field style_extra/cprofile_icons/facebook.gif style_extra/cprofile_icons/youtube.gif style_extra/cprofile_icons/Email.png save and yur done. (if you change the image name then edit the image path to match * NOTE with the email / message option this runs straight from the built in message / mail system that if thier alerts are set correct they will get an email and or message. to stop a long url being diplayed all they need to do is add thier Member ID number which is shown in the url bar at the top when they are logged into their profile and would be entered like this example > MemberID=21 This option keeps email / contact details private. you can visit an example here > ok enjoy. edit, will add a twitter one later tonight / sorry missed that one
  16. I am muddle fussing here trying to get one of these to work, and I have copied the url one and renamed it for youtube (only because i have no ideas fr the different codes that would be needed, but they are still coming up as dead links ? is there something else i need to do ? re cache something ? also if people know the codes needed for other options / skype youtube etc that would be great thanks Pete
  17. ? I think your over thinking it, before this feature I had a user called crash, the crash test dummy for testing the site, with the log in feature crash is now even more versatile, it takes 2 seconds to set crash's permission settings then log in / and you have what you want as above. wham, bam and thank you mam

    ? OK so I understand then, the permissions on this hook are broken and or are not set correct and do not work as they should ? is that correct or am I not understanding how things work ? and the only way I can allow people who are over 18 bypass this hook (as they are not selected as affected) is to build out a second option for every other group and now make them a master adult group so thay can avoid having to see this hook ? rather than just add them as a adult member in secondary permissions. I suppose I am more confused about how the correct function of the permissions should work. my understanding of permissions is that, regardless of primary or secondary permissions a higher level takes authority, which would seem to say if a person is not affected then that should take hold regardless of primary or secondary group settings. If I am wrong and the hook is working as it should then I need to build out and try and get 4 or 5 groups to all work on 2 levels just to make this hook work ? which I do not mind doing i suppose if thats the case but if the hook is not working as intended thats a big work around. Please clarify
