  1. Is there anyway to create a better award stream content block than the small "Top Awarded" block?

    So something that's a list of the last X awards awarded that says per line, "User W was awarded award X on Y date for Z action(s)."

    I'd love to have a feed like that and if it could push to rss even better.

  2. I recently upgraded from IPBoard 3 and had an older version Awards System.  Now I'm in the current IPBoard 4 version with the current iAwards.  I'm getting some odd behavior.

    When I installed the app in IP4 the awards from the previous install automatically populated inside of the admincp.  If I click on "manage award" for a specific award it'll show everyone who has been awarded correctly.  I also checked the "Awards System" upgrade page and it says "Awards System is already upgraded."

    However, the actual "awards" page on the front end is completely blank and shows no awards.  Additionally, all individual members profiles' awards tabs are also completely empty.  

    Why is stuff showing up inside of the admincp but nothing is populating in the front end?

    UPDATE: Got it figured out.  It was the individual award permissions.  Would be REALLY nice if the category permissions overrode the individual permissions.  Now I have around 40 awards I need to set permissions for.

  3. Have a small feature request for some day down the line but if you set a form to create a topic it would be nice if approving a form through the admin CP would auto-post a reply in that topic.

    I run a gaming guild and am using the app for our membership application.  We have about half a dozen officers who can process apps but it would be nice if approving an app would submit a reply to the original thread created saying the app was processed on this date by this user.

    Awesome app, though.  Thanks a bunch :)

  4. Another quick question, how long does an application benefit take to process?  I set up a form that, when submitted, is supposed to move a user into a specific usergroup but it does not appear to happen instantaneously.

    UPDATE: Two hours later, still no joy.  Had two forum members test this and neither of them had their usergroup updated.

    DOUBLE UPDATE:  Ah, it's not automatic.  Needs to be approved in admincp.  Got it.

  5. Hi,

    I recently installed this plugin and it works great!  Except one small hitch.  I have a form set viewable by guests but not submittable.  However, when a guest arrives at the form they are met with this error:


    Sorry, there is a problem
    You are not allowed to submit this form
    Error code: 2app_cant_apply

    How can I have this form viewable by guests but not submittable?

  6. When I go to a profile field I don't get any way to select usergroups. Instead I see this:

    Allowed Groups 22,26,4,5,11,18,10,12,2,20,3,8,9,6,25,17,21,7,14,16,23,19,13,1,15
    Only users from selected groups will can fill this field

    Visible to 22,26,4,5,11,18,10,12,2,20,3,8,9,6,25,17,21,7,14,16,23,19,13,1,15
    Only users from selected groups will can see this field


    EDIT: Argh, and this app is also completely broken. Great.

    Refund, please. You should really take this app down until you fix it. It's messed up that you still have it for sale when you know it's junk.

  7. I'm having a bit of an issue. For a lot of members HTML code isn't parsing. I'm not sure if it's a usergroup permissions issue or not as I've been pouring over the permissions sets trying to find what would be the culprit.

    For my admin account all HTML is parsed perfectly fine when I view it on someone's profile page. For others, they're seeing stuff like this:

    <p style="text-align: center;"><img alt="Posted Image" class="bbc_img" src="		" /><img alt="Posted Image" class="bbc_img" src="		" /></p>

    And obviously I have both "Enable BBCode" and "Enable HTML" positively checked for this particular profile field.

    Any ideas?

  8. Where is the xml file for the blocks that come premade?

    What I meant to say that in your previews you have a minicalender, recent blog entries, et cetera. Where's all this stuff?

    Premade Blocks

    In addition to the entire system there are dozens of pre made blocks that come with this modification for you to just impor them with a click of a button and you will have all the blocks you had before and more.

    A quick list of the avilable blocks that come with the modification

    • MetaCafe Videos - Example of using the metacafe videos inside a block
    • Youtube Video - Example of using the youtube videos inside a block
    • Who's Chatting - Display who is chatting block (Parachat, etc...)
    • Top Posters - Display top posters
    • Mini Calendar - Display a mini calendar
    • Displayed Only inside forums - A custom block that uses the include exception to be displayed only inside any forum
    • Custom Block - A custom block that uses IPB Editor
    • Watched Items - Watched items (Forum, Topics)
    • Latest Status Updates - Latest members status updates
    • Recent Topic - Recent topics
    • Google ads - An example on using google ads
    In order to install them just import the XML file that came with this modification using the import tool in the custom forum blocks application.

    Also, the "status update" sample box code doesn't appear to work. I get massive DB errors when I try to use it.

    Specifically, I'd really like a working status updates box and, most importantly, a mini-calender.
