Awesome Forum Icons
Have you ever wanted to spice up your forum icons, but don't want to deal with the hassle and drawbacks of using static images?
Then Font Awesome icons may be for you!
This application allows you to use any of Font Awesome 4.7's 675 icons as custom icons for your own IPS forums.
These icons will seamlessly replace the traditional speech balloon/comments icon that you see on your board index. Other than the icon changing, they will still look, function, and be styled exactly the same!
This can also be utilized with custom themes, light or dark.
Say, for example, you have a forum for general conversation, sharing artwork, authors, bug reports, or so on. Chances are, there's an icon for you.
Boring. Let's spice it up a bit!
That's better! See how much more life you can give your forums just by giving them their own unique icons?
How does it work?
Simple! Just install the application, edit the forum you wish to customize, and select the icon you wish to use.
You'll see a new option for Font Awesome icons appear just below the traditional Icon upload form,
That's all there is to it!
McAtze reacted to Makoto for a file, Makoto's Gallery Enhancements
This plugin contains various tweaks and adjustments I have made to the IP.Gallery application to make it more suitable for my own personal use.
After losing the original code for this plugin and having to reverse engineer the last build I made of it in order to apply a minor bugfix with the latest IPS release, I have decided to go ahead and open source my modifications here to submit as a general suggestion to IPS in regards to changes I'd like to see to the IP.Gallery platform.
What this plugin does
1. Changes the scaling of images in the gallery. I find the default gallery window way too small for most use cases. This plugin, by default, modifies the gallery window to utilize up to 65% of the browser window.
Here is a before and after demonstrating this:
16x9 aspect ratios can cleanly fill the entire box with this setup, while other images still are able to be viewed at much more reasonable resolutions.
2. Allows you to disable the gallery lightbox.
The gallery lightbox is neat. It's nice to have in certain areas of the site, like when clicking on a gallery image linked in a forum post.
It is not, however, nice to have literally everywhere you go in the gallery. It does not replace traditional gallery navigation for me, and based on the vast amount of user feedback I've seen, most members I've interacted with do not like this system either.
This is anecdotal, but shares my personal experience.
This plugin will let you disable having the lighbox open when you click on images in category and album overview pages. You will instead be directed to the normal image overview page.
3. (Or more 2.1), disables the gallery lightbox when loading an image link directly.
Why is the lightbox being forced here? It's redundant and not any more user friendly than just looking at the page that's already been loaded. It's just an annoyance. So I've disabled it.
4. View full image actually opens the full image.
This I consider more of a bug. The "view full image" link does not, as its name implies, open the full image. It opens the large, scaled down image in a new tab instead.
This plugin fixes it so that it links to the original image instead.
5. Adds a download button to the lightbox
After bashing the lightbox overuse so much, I decided to wrap up by adding something to it. This includes a simple tweak that adds a "download image" button to the lightbox.
6. Adds two new options to control the number of albums and images displayed
By default, the gallery displays 25 albums and 50 images per page. If you utilize categories that make heavy use of both albums and direct image uploads, you may wish to tweak this like me. Personally, I prefer limiting the gallery to 10 albums per page.
McAtze reacted to Adriano Faria for a file, Mark Message As Unread
This quick plugin will mark a private message as unread so you can get back to it later or in a proper time. The plugin will not re-enable the total unread messages (rthe number in red circle in the message icon); it will only mark unread so you can find it faster in the messages list.

Create pools where members on your forums will predict who will win sports games. The member(s) with the most correct pociks by the end of the contest will be declared the winner.
How It Works
Customize basic settings in the ACP. Create categories (from the ACP) and set permissions for which member groups can view and join pools in them. Add pools (from the ACP) into categories. If breaking your pool down into separate weeks, you can add new weeks to your pool in the ACP. In the Teams area in the ACP, add teams and optional logos. Members with permissions go to the pool's page on the front end and click a Join Pool button to join. Once games are added (done on the front end by groups who have been given permission within the ACP settings), a Make Picks button will appear and allow for members to select who will win each game. Each individual game's kickoff time is the deadline for making a choice for that game. The game winners are entered on the front end by those with permissions. The member(s) with the highest number of correct picks at the time of the ending of the pool is the winner and is congratulated in a messabe above the standings! Additional Features
Enter a deadline for members to join the pool by. If you want them to be able to join even after it starts, make it a far off time. Set up a tiebreaker question if you want ties in the final standings broken. the question will then show on every Make Picks form. You do not have to add the tiebreaker at the beginning. You can add it near the end and then it will start showing on their late round forms. Use weeks or don't. You can change from not using them to using them at any time or you cans witch from using them to not if you have not gone past week 1 yet. You can enable the ability for members to select tie/draw for a game prediction. The term to be used can be set in the ACP. If enabled and a game ends in a tie, those who predicted a tie will be marked as a correct pick. If not enabled, nobody gets marked as correct or incorrect if it ended in a tie. You can enter a game result as Canceled and nobody will be marked as correct or incorrect for the game. The Pick Form tells which team, if any, has received the most selections so far. There is a sidebar widget, which shows the overall standings and the current week's standings (if weeks are enabled). Like other widgets within the forum software, you can add it or remove it from various pages within your site. When a pool's current week is about to have its first kickoff within 24-48 hours, a notification will be sent to all members in the pool, reminding them to review their picks and also letting them know if they forgot to make any picks. The default method is email, but like other notifications in the forum software, members can disable it or select inline notifications. Notes
Categories do not show on the front end. The pools are listed right on the front page of the app and there are currently no subcategories used. You can add weeks at any time during the pool, but only the current week's games can be picked. Once you are ready to move on to the enxt week, simply click the End Week button in the ACP. Once the pool is completed, click the End Pool button in the ACP. If you wish for the pool to stop showing, click the Close Pool button in the ACP. This will remove the pool from the front page of the app and from the widget. There are currently strict requirements for being able to delete pools, delete weeks, etc... Once there are entries, games, etc.... some delete features will be unavailable. Also there is currently no undo button for games, so be careful when submitting results! This can work in 4.3, You will only need to upload a different FURL file and use the support tool in the acp to rebuild and then it works in 4.3. Terms
There is no branding shown on the app's pages. If you upload a logo for a team, it will show to the right of the team's name on the Pick Form. It is up to you to know which logos you are legally allowed to use on your sites. My inclusion of the feature is not an endorsement for using trademarked or copyrighted logos. I am leaving it up to you to know what you can use. 🙂 Obviously, the app and code within it cannot be redistributed. I hope you enjoy the app. There are some similarities to the contests area of my betting app I created for 3.x, with some new features added in.
