  1. Nice work, this is already looking amazing! Hope you get the indent sorted, I think someone above had a similar issue (might be wrong though)

    Thank you very much Mike John!

    @Mike John I firstly want to thank you for being so generous & providing this product for free, just like in 3.4. Until I get my pages sorted I will be using this. One problem I am having is the colour scheme is differen't from the rest of my website. Is there an area where I can change the bar colour etc easily? Also is there a way to change the menu name from Portal, to something else?
  4. @Ralf Herrmann Would it be possible to change the title of this thread? Perhaps to something that shows this thread is informative. I didn't expect so much information to be provided on how to improve the look of pages.
  5. Hi, I finally got enough courage to start playing around with some new things in IPB & I activated Twitter for Login. I noticed a few bugs & I am sorry if you already know about them, I also thought about some improvements. 1. When you connect your account in the profile settings & allow it to grab your photo & banner... It grabs a really low quality Display photo & Instead of grabbing my banner, it grabbed my twitter background. 2. When you allow it to grab your latest status updates & post them as status updates on the forum, it would be nice if it ignored tweets
  6. I second this, it is much needed. I don't want to display all custom fields above the content, I would like to display some above & some below.
  7. So now I am using a record image & have the text in the main content, the listings page looks great. The only problem now, is that the article page looks worse. I have the Link fields I created below the Content field, and yet the content field displays below instead of the links... I would love the Links to be displayed beneath the Image and Content at the bottom. I have the fields in the correct order (links at the bottom) so not sure why they display at the top.
  8. I took your advice and put the listing page into Article mode and it already has started looking better. I just have some weird align issue on the one with a record image. Edit: It was because I had the text in a teaser paragraph that was not defaulted as "set record as content field". Once I set it to content field, it worked.
  9. Yay! OMG, I am gonna have to try this later. This looks amazing, thanks so much for your help. I am guessing that it also includes the record image below the title and above the content, if you have a record image? Here is why I didn't use Record Image, because I couldn't figure out how to change it's position. I didn't want it displayed at the bottom like this, I wanted it displayed to the top right. Also everytime I edit an article, I click off the 'show this was edited' and it still showed "edited just now by xert77". Why am I unable to position the Record Image field in the list like
  10. ah ok awesome. I will check that out then. Thank you
  11. Thanks for the reply, I will definitely be looking at these settings later on. At the moment I added my own image field and disabled the record image, is this the wrong thing to do? I wasn't sure if I could position the record image where I wanted. i I hope you guys don't think I am attacking IPB. I love IPB and I think you guys do an amazing job on releases and support. I just feel like Pages could be easier for casual web masters, and if it already is easy, have better documentation and examples. Documentation on how to create a news category with news articles & then display those on
  12. I appreciate you responding Lindy. I am just struggling with Pages, all of your other products are easy & pages is really difficult. it took me ages to create even this: And the problem is, because I had to format all this myself I worry about how it will look or work on mobiles. I also have this weird bar that I can't get rid of without 'custom code' apparently. It's like the content is being displayed like it would be in a forum instead of a website. Literally if I made forum posts it would look exactly the same as it did in the pages listing, before I added customizations. I d
  13. I just feel like every other IPB product works so freaking well, and they are all fairly easy to deal with both front & back end. Then you get to pages & it's a complete mess, it feels like having to code a whole website from scratch... Lets face it, you have to code the template you want, code how you want fields to display... You may as well code the whole thing.... Why need pages. If Pages was made more like Wordpress, Joomla etc... It would make IPB perfect. What annoys me more is that every question I ask in support about pages is replied with... This requires custom code so I can
  14. Hi, Before I complain, I want to start off with a nice note. Since joining IPB my users have loved the website, commented on how nice it works compared to VB & I have loved your support. When ever I have a bug or problem you guys usually reply pretty fast, sometimes during the night! But here is where I am confused, angry & very, seriously sad. I love IPB. I think it is one of the most solid products in the market, I think it is also the most professional both company wise (how you guys release things when it's ready & not before) and also product wise, it's very professional.

    ​Awesome thanks for the reply.

    ​I second this question, I checked the product page & didn't see anything about 4.0 so sorry if it's been asked multiple times. (Loved this product & the support on 3.4)
  17. Hey, I just want to say what a great job the IPS team are doing at the moment. Not only are you always here on the forums interacting with people, but you have always been very, very, very speedy when I have requested support lately. Since updgrading to the RC I have had so many support tickets & the team have responded within a few hours usually for each, they have also fixed any issues in future RC releases & applied temporary fixes for anything major. As someone who doesn't know much about software development etc. You have made my life a lot easier by providing so much help and ass
  18. ​ahaha I know how you feel. I felt so stupid reading all these people saying how easy everything was, when to me it all seemed like Rocket Science. Thanks to the pro community users informing those in need we are beginning to learn XD
  19. Hi, Today I was involved in a discussion with several members of the community in this thread: http://community.invisionpower.com/topic/408095-ips4-feature-plan/?page=2 I am making this thread to show my excitement for what I have learned today & hopefully encourage some pros here in the IPB community to offer more advice or share what they have created already & the steps they took to do it. 1. What is a Database? I learned the difference between Databases, Pages & Categories. ​ 2. SIMPLE Page Builder I learned that there is a SIMPLE page builder if you click 'add
  20. ​Oh wow. That video Database page is nice man. Was it easy to do? Are the photo previews automatically grabbed from the video. Or did you add them to a field manually. It looks really nice, I might try and replicate something similar for our youtube videos.
  21. ​Oooh nice there is actually a YouTube field, so if you input a Youtube URL it auto embeds it in the article?
  22. ​So to add a preview image on the left of each listing: http://xeraingaming.com/articles.html/mod-videos/ I would edit the Teaser Paragaraph Field? TBH I need to probably start from scratch with Categories, Databases & articles. When we converted from VBulletin everything was messed up & all over the place. Will probably delete all Articles & categories and start from scratch eventually.
  23. ​Ah ok. Thanks for explaining this, it makes more sence now. I will have to play around with it a bit more on our website. Currently on our Mods page: http://xeraingaming.com/articles.html/mod-videos/ We have it displaying a database: <div class='ipsLayout ipsLayout_withright ipsLayout_largeright'> <div class='ipsLayout_content'> {database="1"} </div> </div>And it is displaying a list of all mod articles. I am guessing if I want to make each preview also display a preview photo, I would have to edit the Database?
  24. ​What I don't understand is what Databases are. They seem like Categories? But there is also a categories section in the backend as well. So what is the difference between the two? (sorry to ask questions which are probably stupid) I was just used to Joomla. You would create a category 'News'. Set a page to display a preview list of the category 'news' and that would be it. You could then add modules down the sides to display extra blocks. There was never anything called Databases.
  25. ​I have seen some great websites make awesome frontpages & website articles pages with cool layouts and features. I would love if there was documentations or step by step guides on how to create nice Pages. I honestly bought Pages last year thinking it would be simple like Joomla, but then I realised I had been niave & had no idea how to actually make the post of pages. We now have the forums as the homepage instead of using it's full benefit - Which seems like a waste.
