    Advanced Footer

    I am happy with how this turned out after some tinkering and gracious help from Taman. I liked how the red arrow icons turned out. I did that with: <ul class="ipsDataList"> <h3>Site Links</h3> <li><a href="Example.com"><i class="fa fa-caret-right" aria-hidden="true"></i><strong>Link Title</strong></a></li> </ul> What specifically gave the red arrows was. Not sure if 'aria-hidden="true"' is necessary or not: <i class="fa fa-caret-right" aria-hidden="true"></i> Also, using a trick that I dug out of the support thread, the default dotted lines was replaced by adding this to custom.css: .af_Container .linksBlo .ipsDataList li, .af_Container .articlesBlo li {border-bottom: 1px solid;} This was the final outcome: I initially had problems getting this plugin to work at all for reasons that I can't explain (was told that the fields were empty by default) but Taman was quick to help me get it fixed. This plugin works with all themes. As a note, I disabled the footer on my site's theme which is Magnum (also by Taman and highly recommended).

    I dropped that into custom.css and it worked beautifully. You're a genius.

    Thanks Taman. Much easier to see with a darker color. However, the logo text is still pretty hard to see with thin letters. I tried putting <strong > </strong > tags into various parts of the global template but that did not work. Is the template to complicated for a simple fix like that to implement bold logo text? Perhaps it would just be better to use a transparent text logo

    Hello, Does anyone know what Front-End Color represents the site title on the default white palette? I'm trying to making my site title a little bit darker so it can be seen. This is what it looked like with the default colors. Also, I could not find which color is under "create" and the notifications in the upper right. Trying to make that much darker because on mobile it takes up the whole row and does not look good to have two rows with the same dark blue like that. I tried to go down almost the whole palette changing everything to bright pink and back to figure out what is what, but that proved to be a difficult task.

    No luck on getting the Twitter feed to work. Any suggestions? I will leave my ACP credentials the same as yesterday if there is something you might think would help to check. The Twitter url I'm trying to connect to the feed is: https://twitter.com/vnetworking Input: Output (No tweets):

    T.I.T License Copyright Removal

    I was happy to buy this to show my support. Taman is the best thing to happen to IPB since IPS 4.0.

    This is still working on IPS 4.2.5. Awesome! This is a wonderful feature. It's a shame that it's not built into IP.Board but it's great that a plugin still works for it. Had to enable it for all users for it to work initially. Not sure if that was necessary but gave me some trouble at first until I did that.

    Thank you for responding. I re-installed the plugin and it is working now. Would have given up otherwise so I'm sorry for jumping to conclusions. *Confirmed working on 4.2.5*

    (NB40) Reorder Pinned Topics

    I installed this, enabled it for all groups, yet there is no "Pinned Topics" button available. This does not appear to work on 4.2. Edit: Found an alternative solution and confirmed it to work on 4.2: Still would have been nice just to be able to sort the topics but I had to uninstall newbie LAC's app. It has not been supported in two years but is a useful concept so had to give it a try.

    Magnum Theme [ support topic ]

    Hello, new fan here. About how difficult would it be to make a footer look like this? If I try to more than two columns of "Site Links" then it pushes it down into another row rather than cutting across the right half of the page. This example below is from a different theme in which the footer was the only part that I liked. It would also be desirable to be able to remove the ".........." separators in between the footer links on your theme or to use visuals similar to what's above. This is what the ACP in the footer section looks like in the them pictured above: I tried to copy those setting values over but it didn't work. Edit: Below is a screenshot of the best I could do using the parameters in the footer section on Magnum. Too much space under and above the headers and can only make those two columns. I also believe it would look much more professional with the divider style in the screenshot at the top of this post. Those columns also afforded this same text just enough space not to force anything on two lines. The column on the right also is a bit bigger (a better width). My target would be to have four columns with the same width of column two, with the discretion to use one of them as an "About me" but not in BB code.

    Magnum Theme

    I loved this so much that I bought the copyright-removal as a thank you. I was about to give up on IPB after many years of waiting for theme which could accomplish my goals and not be a complete headache. I was about to delete my hosted IPB account and change my content concept to WordPress, but downloaded this theme to give IPB one last chance. Not only is this headache-free, but it is getting scores on WebPageTest like I've never seen before: If I added an Amazon S3 bucket that B could probably turn into an A and I would get a perfect score. Load times are also under 3 seconds, and with a large image in my slider! The attention to detail you must have paid in order to accomplish out-of-box speed test scores like this is staggering. Going to keep this as my site's exclusive theme. Great work and please keep this updated.

    IPS 4 Integration: Promote and Sweep

    Yes indeed, I remember literally waiting 3-4 years for 4.0 to come out in the first place and planning my life around that. Not complaining, but literally that's what happened and I waited a few more years longer than I expected. By then I had a different career entirely and the plans needed to change. But just using logic and common sense, I imagine nothing would really be lost or missing, especially since 4.x has such a solid text editor (which is part of why I was waiting so long). It's just kind of funny to walk up to my forum finally and get started only to see that I'm still "waiting for 4.0". However, I'm glad that doing a good job is important to them rather than use artificial deadlines where they release ready or not. I do worry about inconsistencies though, if promoted blog posts come out in a significantly different format.

    IPS 4 Integration: Promote and Sweep

    @Lindy (or anyone who can answer): If we just copy-pasted forum posts into blogs, how similar would that effect be to promoting a forum post into a blog with blog integration? I ask because I'm torn between waiting for the feature and just doing it manually. I do not mind the extra manual work, however I don't want somehow to be missing something critical and bloggy with the cut/paste method. Thanks. Serious question by the way.

    Anyone have any idea how to get a social media button working with this theme please? I keep buying other themes with social media buttons, but none seem to look as good as this one. Thanks in advance if anyone's out there.
