  1. This is the response I got to a ticket I raised querying why EXIF data was being stripped from image thumbnails in IP.Board. I'd like to see Image Magick available throughout the entire suite, not just in the gallery.
  2. I think THL wants what I want - a thumbnail to be generated as a reduced size, separate file - rather than have the thumbnail be the same physical image file, constrained with width and height attributes. If you have 10 or 20 250kb images on the same list page, page loading times suffer a lot...
  3. I am very interested in this app. I run a photography community so images are our main content. Before I buy it, I have some questions: Can I choose to enable or disable thumbnails from URLs, forum by forum (I want this turned on for some forums but not for all)? Are the image pop-ups the full-sized image with a height and/or width setting in CSS, or are they a reduced, scaled version of the image? Is it possible to set a default thumbnail (e.g. my board logo) for when the topic does not contain an image? How do you handle cropping - I love the magazine layout that you have enabled in 1.0.6 but can I control which part of an image is shown as the thumbnail (e.g. I don't want the top of a head to be missing)? Images on my board are 900 pixels on the longest edge and they come in portrait and landscape orientations and can be cropped as 3x2, 1x1 and pretty much any other ratio you can think of, so control over what the thumbnail looks like is really important to me. Ideally, thumbnails should be a 100% quality scaled version of the original image, in the original ratio, padded as necessary to centre them horizontally and vertically.
  4. I prefer it for aesthetic reasons (prettier, larger buttons and less cluttered) - so it depends that you mean by "better"
  5. I don't analyse such things closely so I cannot tell you. I can say that my site runs acceptably fast to me.
  6. First, do this. You may even want to stop at that point. Then sign up with AddThis and choose the buttons you want; when you have them, copy and paste the code they provide you with into the Global Templates > shareLinks template for your skin. I remove all code in this template apart from the first two lines and last line (i.e. the parse code and the if block).
  7. I replaced the default share buttons with the AddThis ones and it all works fine
  8. ...I should have also added that I would like to be able to show more than one message at a time, too, per user/group.
  9. As per the title... I'd love to be able to put up messages that are global to my site but which a member can close or dismiss once they have read them.
  10. The lightbox needs to be tweakable to really round this out well... comments on/off, background colour/opacity, etc..
  11. Ok, thanks for the teaser... I would like to see administrators be provided with precise control over image uploads: I want to be able to set limits for file size (in kb) and image size (in pixels - height, width, both, longest edge... just like Adobe Lightroom does it) in combination or independently of each other. Not just maximums but also minimums and fixed values. This is really important when you run an image-centric site and consistency and quality are your bywords. I also want full control over quotas (max number of images per group, user, album, category, etc.). I would also like to see more options for controlling the number and size of images that are created automatically from the original upload... I should be able to specify (e.g.) 5 different sizes and the dimensions (in pixels) and quality settings for each... and have them used dynamically according to device screen size.
  12. Tom, after doing some reading based on some advice I got in the topic I raised in the IPC support forum, I think this is down to me misunderstanding how IP.Content blocks work.
  13. I am having problems getting my IP.Content sidebar blocks to look the same as the ones created by IP.Board. Should Simplify blend these so that they have the same appearance or is IP.Content not supported? I've posted a more detailed question in the IP.Content support forum, here.
  14. Tom, I really like the simplicity of this skin - good work. I have noticed that if a member changes the background colour of their member profile, there are white backgrounds showing around the social media buttons, menu bar and various panels in the footer... would it be possible to make these transparent so that the background colour they choose bleeds through correctly?
  15. Thanks Tom... I did everything you mention apart from uploading the files to my webhost first... and it worked fine on my dev site (which is a subdomain of the live site). I will try FTPing first next time though, thanks.
