    Eric Allione reacted to TheRevTastic in Turn board offline automatically when uploading/upgrading to new version   
    This is a feature I would love to see taken from XenForo, it turns your bored off when it sees that there are new files for an upgrade to the next version then it automatically comes back online when done upgrading.

    If this is done, it would also be cool to have a feature when upgrading to either select when the board comes back online, as in say you need to configure some stuff before the board goes back online so you can have a box to check that makes it stay offline until you manually turn it back on.

    3.3.4 requires a free addon IP.SEO to generate sitemaps. 3.4 will have this addon built in.

    With new versions, there are always going to be skin changes, the price of advancement.

    Yes, you CAN test it. If you have a self hosted license you can have a test board with your skin on it and see what you need to do to make it compatible with the next version. There is even a tool built into the ACP that tells you the changes.

    If you have a hosted community, I'm pretty sure you can get a demo and install your current skin on it and see what happens.

    There is a width adjuster where you can type in any pixel or % value, and you don't even have to open the HTML/CSS. It's under System > System Settings.



    That being said, it seems a bit odd to go over 90% since the side banners have the potential to look very nice, especially since you can customize them (this does require opening the HTML and CSS). I personally swapped out the 4 custom backgrounds in there with 1920*1080 backgrounds I liked more, and change them throughout the day based on what I feel like looking at. You would lose this option with width at 100%:




    While I'm here, I'd like to add that last night I ran a large sample (about 100 site speed tests) on all the major 3.4.4 skins, and this one came in second place (to Pulse), which means that this skin isn't slowed down by the fact that it requires a hook to function. Also, that it consistently ranked faster than the default blue IP.Board skin, even with a giant custom background being implemented.

    Hi, a few questions.

    1) How do I remove the banner with the "Ask an Expert" banner at the top?

    2) Would it work if I just upload more backgrounds and name them Custom5, Custom6 etc?

    3) My message bar in the Shoutbox is a really strange solid green. I have my message in green because I can only use that one color for all my skins, and it is readable with all of my backgrounds. But on Maxx it forces there to be that solid green background for the text. Is there a way to change that background color in the shoutbox block without affecting my other skins?





    I don't think this skin is really what I wanted, but I was impressed by how much detail you put into it, so I guess I'll buy your Nacht skin and see how that goes.

    Great, thank you. After removing the extra features and taking care of this, the Maxx skin is working well for me.

    It's the Nacht skin that's giving me problems now since I'm having trouble setting a default texture, but this one's looking great now. I'm not worried about the Nacht one though since it's similar enough. I'll just keep the Maxx visible.

    Overall, great skin! It just was overwhelming at first with all the features.

    Hi ,
    you can force custom message color per skin by adding this css code to ipb_styles.css or any css file

    div#shoutbox-announcement-text.message span { color:#fff !important ; }
    here #fff white ,
    for each skin you can choose suitable color code

    this is in the template called sub header , if you want to remove it just delete this template contents

    You need to preserve the default directory structure that came with the shoutbox.

    For example, if popup.png was stored in:

    public/style_images/master/shoutbox/

    Then you'll need to upload it to:

    public/style_images/tctc91_pulse/shoutbox/

    File Submitted: 12 Sep 2012
    File Category: User and Social Engagement
    Supported Versions: IP.Board 3.3.x, IP.Board 3.4.x



    Here it is ladies and gentlemen, the application that will change your life. With this application you will no longer need other third party apps, or even other IPS products to handle a media system, this turns the forum application already default with your IPB purchase into a media system, to display latest videos on board index and to go through pages and pages of previous videos, so what are you waiting for? want to know more, keep reading:

    Features:
    follows forums permissions group based submissions allowance select what forums to grab videos from creates new video from topic or reply or both (enable or disable in the settings) grabs title, description, and thumbnail directly from service of the media file (will resize thumbnail using GD library so that is a must, and saves resized image) supports all default IPB media tags (also supports the blip.tv media tag found in the market, as I myself like blip). easy modal window pop up to view video, size of modal setting in acp settings easy link to the discussion forum for video displays X amount of latest video submissions on board index (amount can be changed in settings). display more videos (displays X amount of videos based on per page setting in acp, also pagination to go back further) delete topic or post, deletes video as well (so it no longer displays on board index or more videos). moves topic or post? will move video discussion url to match. made a new topic forgot video? don't worry, will also grab videos from an edit if the forum and user group are allowed decide to remove video from a topic or post? still no worries, will remove video as well. this system will continue to work as intended, with any text above or below the video, it only seeks out the media links in the topic/post data supports own3d.tv media tags, you can find them in the market, http://community.inv...-own3dtv-video/ (please update to the latest version as somethings have change in it). own3d.tv has shut down. now supports twitch.tv media tags, can be found in zip file. includes content block.

    Please if you have a question to ask, do not ask it in the comments. ask in the support thread or go to the discussion url register and post there, or use my contact->other form. Thankyou. (reason being, I do not recieve notifications on comments for some reason) . If you have the previous hook version installed, DO NOT UNINSTALL it, this application can import its data, and then remove the unneeded files for it.

    Any additional mediatags that are not listed here, or not default with IPB, will not be supported in the official release, if you need a specific mediatag that is not listed or supported by IPB default, then you will need to contact me for it to be added and will require an additional fee. I feel I have Included the majority of the most popular video host out there to be included in this system. If there is a popular demand for a specific tag, I include it in the main release.

    Ah, forgot to suggest something... Would be great to have a Delete Shout button in shout row of global shoutbox or something like that. Right now to delete a certain shout you have to click Moderating Options button, then you'll be redirected to main chat window and only there you'll be able to delete the shout. Too much actions if you want to just delete some stupid message or spam.

    Hi, your app is great and yes it is working on 3.3.4.

    However, I changed its name to 'Activity Stream' and so I would like to rename the header 'News Feed' above where it says "See the latest activity around the community".

    I dug through every skin file in "Look and Feel" and could not find these words. To change this, would I have to uninstall the app, remove the files, and then take a look at the files? Is there an easier way to do that?





    PS. I was the one who reported it as broken but I had Aiwa cancel the report a few minutes later when I realized it was actually working. Sorry about that.

    I was confused because the instructions about adding code into the skeleton template contradicted what was actually in the template. However, it still worked even thought that step was impossible, so you might want to remove that part of your instructions.

    Your instructions said:



    Added this line to the skeleton template of each skin: <!--::newsfeed_getFeedData::--> underneath: <!--::recent_topics_discussions_last_x::--> However, the skeleton template had no such line and didn't even have any tags with <!--:: ::-->

    But like I said, it worked fine without taking any such action.
