  1. Weekly digest summary?

    I guess w/out this feature, establishing a new community, is extremely impossible. I have one discourse install, and it's hella active, whereas I had to IP for another community that was based on Pro Membership so I ditched discourse for it.. as it's in initial development and does not have 'subscription' model as yet ..... However we might switch to discourse as well for this community, solely because of Summary feature., I meant with SES it dirt cheap to send emails, w/out this Summary Feature we may be soon ditching IP board, Please pardon me for this brutal feedback, however please understand the need for it.... you do have marketplace and it won't accept credit card, and paypal is not supported by our country. on a side note, if you get this feature, we might ditch Discourse for the other community and gladly pay for another license? deal?
  2. I can not believe there are only a dozen of CSS classes, to control the zillions of blocks and elements. Even worse, each group or type of page does not has its own css class. If you have ever used 'wordpress' you would know what I meant. wordpress has CSS built-in even for the tinest element in a document. And It's hell easy even for a beginner level web designer to customize the way they can., Only because extremely specific CSS classes. For instance, If I am viewing single post, (topic view in IPB, or article view in IP content, where I needed it most) wordpress would add .single css class to body element among others. Likewise to other type of different public view templates. There is no way you can style a different template or page without messing with the core files. I have little to no knowledge of XML, since I have pretty good understanding of HTML, I was able to pull this trick off where I could. But as a general rule, 'never ever be general with css'., be as much specific as you can. It would result in adding more classes and one time hard work. But it would save zillions of hours for many of us. Thanks for consideration.
  3. But on the other hand, you should see a customer like me from Pakistan. Who has never used VB and even loath it. I am your product evangelist too. Over the facebook, twitter, Google+, and other site whereever I go. IPB is my first recommendation to them. - I have been your customer for the past 3 years. So customers have good track record, can be given a favor to charge their credit card through other gateway, (which in my case did happen, and support charged the card through the alternative gateway). So the sole point is, before the support denies someone upfront, they should look at customer history too. or ask them for additional proof. like ID Card or Passport copy from customers then denying the customers. Who wants to lose legit customers in this age ;) and I hope you consider it.
  4. The issue was resolved. because I was not willing to accept the reason the support had offered. 1. It's not issue of fraudulent transactions from Pakistan. there are more than 30 or more country where paypal accept CC which are lower in rank than Pakistan and have more fraud. 2. Problem is, Our Govt denied the favors paypal was looking to operate here. They wanted to operate like a bank without being a bank. And our central bank had serious issue with that. So they were not granted the permission to operate like that. 3. Pakistan is nation of 190 Million people. any startup like this one can barely ignore it. 4. I still don't buy the reason as support laid out, that Pakistan has higher rate of credit card frauds. It's invalid. If someone is looking to credit card fraud, he would simply download this software from Warze sites instead. I don't see any point that a fraudster want to download original.
  5. There is more credit card fraud in US/UK than here in Pakistan. I am sick of all this bullfaeces. I can easily download this piece of faeces from any warez forum. than getting myself treated like this. return my money or enable the download.
  6. Still no response from Support. :(
  7. I just logged into my client area after a while, and tried to renew my license. And found now you have changed the payment method to 'paypal' whereas previously it was a card processor. Sadly, paypal does not accept credit cards from Pakistan. and I can't find a way to renew my license. I had raised a support ticket but there is no response in the past 30 hours +
  8. @charles I need to buy a hook that costs $5 and you can see i am stuck here... hook is HSC Links to titles.... I find myself quite helpless.... do you have anything to help me out? or just leave me at the mercy of warez portals?
  9. Featured Content for IPS 3.4.x

    Yep that's what it's missing. it should be your top priority.. because thumbs really don't look professional w/out timthumb.
  10. it's actually quite pain in the ass for me... I am either requesting devs to give me mods as a gift or accept moneybookers/alertpay - some dev would agree to 'create' an account on alternative service while some would just not reply or some would be just kind enough to gift me. but this whole thing drives me nuts.. esp., when you have money to buy and you don't choose piracy and want to support developers too.
  11. But I am rather curious, when IP does have its own credit card processor why do they need paypal for marketplace?
  12. I love to support developers, however I can't buy any of the paid mods or themes in the Marketplace due to the fact that paypal doesn't accept payment from Pakistan. I can easily grab these themes or mods from warez sites or torrents, But I hate it. Therefore I am requesting, kindly sort this out. I am already an active customer of IPB and I can't figure why can't IPB just charge my credit card on files than redirecting me to paypal site... it's really uncool and unprofessional when you already have your very own credit card charge system. please consider it.
  13. Are official award coming to IPB?

    ^ Currently I guess inv awards that works on the latest release... other guy seems to have abandoned the project. I was talking from the community point of view... this is something IPB should invest in.. as i guess a large number of sites will love to have it even though they don't have awards at the moment.
