  1. I was brainstorming I thought it might be possible to use the HTML logic to say : if (setting allow empty content = true) <--some html style to display: none --> {{if settings.auto_polling_enabled}} <!-- Shows if the 'auto_polling_enabled' setting is true (i.e. enabled) --> {{endif}} Update: I did a template edit and managed to get the text box to display: none with this code. It works for my purposes, but I think it would be better to use the settings logic so I don't have to update the forums in the code when I decide to use multiple forums. The problem with this is when the user edits it - it shows the text box. {{if request.app == 'forums' && request.module == 'forums' && request.id == 32}} <div class='ipsComposeArea_editor' data-role="editor" style="display: none;"> {{endif}}
  2. Right, sorry I'm using the wrong terminology. I understand the topic needs to be "empty" - I just want to hide the box from the user so that they don't have to see it during input.
  3. I am wondering if there is a conditional statement I can use based on a URL? I want to tell IPS to show some HTML IF it's on a specific URL Is this possible?
  4. Hi @HeadStand, I bought the app today. I really like it so far. I was curious if there was a way to disable the default text box if a forum is using a set and the " Allow Empty Content " check box is turned on. Perhaps there is a way to have an option to disable the text box input from showing up when a user clicks on "Star New Topic" ?
  5. That's what I meant. I saw it in your file change notes. It can be left blank and I am guessing when you make the custom template - you can just now show that in the template. I also took a look at some of the users websites in your support thread and this seems to be the exact thing I'm looking for to customize my forums individually like I did with mybb Xthreads. Thanks for your attention and replies. I really appreciate it.
  6. I have one more question If I wanted to create my own forum style/look and I set up the fields I'd like to include in the submission, is it possible to have a blank submission in the default forum field? (hope I explained that correctly) So basically I wouldn't want to use the default forum input text box - I'd like to have that set to "blank" and not use it in the custom template design. Scratch that. I just see the answer to this on your file version changes: Allow Empty Content - allows users to populate your template and skip the main content (e.g. create topics with empty posts)
  7. Oh sorry, I think I misunderstood. I was looking for documentation on the Template System to make individual forum templates. Is that also included in the application?
  8. Is there any documentation on how to make these sets anywhere?
  9. Does this allow a "per forum" customisation? Example : i want Forum A to look like a review system i want Forum B to look like standard forum
  10. Right. I guess my question is can the topic template be customized on a "per forum" basis. I wouldn't want every forum topic view to look like that just one forum.
  11. Correct. And be able to add custom fields to that display. So I could create a "Support" forum but have the display look totally different than a normal thread look and use custom fields with it. Hope that makes sense. So with MyBB Xthread - you could take a standard forum and it's input and turn it into something like this: In this example - it's a "Review Thread" Input would look like this when you hit "New Thread" Display would look like this
  12. @Adriano Faria, Thanks for the fast response. I saw this plugin but I wasn't sure if it can accomplish what I'm looking for. My understanding is this can just add custom fields to any part of the suite - not customize the actual forum thread display look.
  13. Hi community friends! I was searching for a way to make custom fields in a thread. Years ago, I used MyBB and they have a nice plugin called "Xthreads". With Xthreads I could totally change the way a forum display looked. (See url below for examples) http://mybbhacks.zingaburga.com/showthread.php?tid=559 Is there a way to accomplish the same with IPS? I know that IPS utilizes databases - and I think this is something I can do with databases but I'm not 100% sure. As far as I understand, databases are separate to the forums and in the Xthread case - it was part of the forums just heavily customized.
  14. Yes so I run a site that has posting services. I would like to create a shop item that the user can buy with activity credits for those services. When they buy that service, I want it to make a forum post for my staff to respond to and get the service started. When the user buys that item I would like it to make a post in a forum I choose as well as have a predefined message I can make for each item. Also, if I could then put a time restriction on that item (example. User buys Package A - Package A has a 30 day cooldown before User can repurchase) Hope this makes sense or that I've explained it well.
  15. @TheJackal84, Thanks again for helping me with the database issue. I was wondering if there was a way too add an item into the shop that , once purchased, will automatically make a post that I can predefine for that item in a specific forum notifying the community that said item was purchased?
