    No. The rating values are shown as summary and for the reviews shown with text there are two settings: Number to Show and ordering as Latest Reviews or Random Reviews.

    I use it for manual medals only and it works fine for that purpose. But people seem to have issues with the automatic awarding of trophies.

    Just a quick note that this method does not prevent the ad from loading, but loads it and hides it. Which is a big nono for every advertiser and might get you banned.

    No, restrictions on specific reactions do not apply. All restrictions are based on the total number of all reactions, as well as separately negative ones among them. This is the basic mechanism. In order to take into account the individual reactions will have to create additional fields in the database, which can greatly complicate the structure, especially taking into account the set of reactions / groups. I wondered if this could be done less painfully, but I promise nothing.
    Sorry, I missed some dialogs)

    If you create HTML banner, you can put anything you like.
     
    You put "zone" JS into IPB ad system+ one js code in to template. You need to do that only once.

    Example
    1. Create "Just below the page header" -zone in Revive. It gives you js-code for that (or iframe code)
    2. Go to IPB ACP - >"Create new advertisement" -> paste Revive JS, choose "Show the advertisement Just below the page header" (with unlimited impressions)

    Now you have installed Revive in your header section. Now you can run differend campaings and banners in that zone from Revive. You dont have to do anything in IPB side anymore.

    Yeah, I figured this will be the answer when I read that the counter is very basic. I think this counter functionality should be removed, because it can give you stats that no advertiser in his right mind would pay and is misleading at best.
    Not that I am complaining getting money for providing ads to Bing, Google, Baidu and Alexa, but this is not fair - providers pay for their ads to be seen by humans, not bots.

    Your issue starts before the image field display - there is ipsPos_right before the code pasted by you:

    I am far from CSS expert, but I think this is where part of your issue is. Resizing the window also brings some strange things, for exampe the avatar goes to the left of the picture:

     
    For the bottom row, the image floats to the left of the block:

     
    As this also happens with the default theme, it is pretty much caused by the modifications you or your developer made. I would reupload the SG templates with the latest version and start from scratch.

    I am just starting exploring the advertisement options offered by IPS and I have stumbled upon a possible issue, maybe bug. I do have Google Analytics to count my page impressions. So far I haven't investigated how many of my users use adblocks. I've read there are options with Google Tag Manager, but I decided that it is much more elegant and representing real life use case to setup one 1x1 white pixel footer advert and count how many ad impressions IPS will register and compare it with the google analytics stats. I've read that IPS uses ipsAdvertisement class, which is blocked by the most popular adblock plugin, so my experiment should have been pretty reliable. 
    Much to my surprise, IPS actually registers more then 2x ad impressions then GA registers page impressions. Any idea what is causing this? Maybe GA filters search robots, which happily crawl my empty ad and register an ad view? Anyone else experience similar behavior with the ad impressions count by IPS?
    Issue here is that there is no way I can sell these stats to ad providers, which kinda makes them meaningless. I am sure most of them will accuse of me of cheating and will be not willing to work with me ever again. Many of them provide ad script with their own tracking, which is fair enough, but I also want to have a reliable method for ad impressions count to cross check with their info as well.

    Keep in mind that switching the storage settings does not move the files, but does copy+delete. Hence, make sure you have enough disk space for 2x the current upload folder. Otherwise it will get VERY unpleasant. 
    That was my experience when I tried the same move on my dev board.

    I can't, in good faith, recommend Group Collaboration by Kevin anymore.  It was a nice run while it lasted, and it's far more powerful in terms of its functionality, but I started catching template errors when I needed something solid to offer to my Club Leader.  At least with Clubs Enhancements, you can disable without any noticeable front-end impact besides the homepage.  The plugin's main benefit is in its backend utility, such as deleting / reordering / converting nodes.  
    It's a choice between two very distasteful futures and I'm swallowing it because Clubs will be professionally supported. 
     With Club Enhancements ... yes.  You can convert a community node into a club node, and vice-versa.  That saved me.   
    With IPS default ... no way.

    jair101 reacted to Joel R in Delete original images - option needed   
    So here's my ultimate gripe: I'm paying Amazon every month for storage.  Like, literally for the rest of time for as long as my website is up.  
    To save even $1 per month can make a difference when you multiple that by the rest of time.  
    Here are some real back-of-the-envelope calculations for my site:
    In my case, I have 250,000 images in my gallery.  I have slightly less than 150,000 regular attachments. So we have:
    250,000 original gallery
    250,000 reduced gallery
    150,000 original attachments
    150,000 reduced attachments
    We're going to assume all of these files are the same size, even though originals are in reality much much larger.  
    If I delete just the original images of my gallery, I'm saving ~30% of my Amazon bill, which is about $40 / mo.  That's $12 /mo.  I maintain a 3 to 5 year outlook on my site, which means I'm going to save $432 to $720.  That's a substantial sum of savings for a website thats broke poor.  
    From a technical and user perspective, I can see how there's a possibility of accessing the original image though.  That's why I really like the above suggestions of making a new filestorage option for originals, where we can move them to something like Amazon Glacier that's infrequently accessed.
