  1. Thanks iacas. Are you referring to using the block manager, then dragging the empty block over to the sidebar? If so, how/where do I make an empty block? Thanks for your help. --E.
  2. I have the same question. ssequin613, did you figure out how to do this? --E.
  3. How can I put a space between icons (see attachment)? Thanks for your help, --E.

    Recently I found myself without my former tech-help guy, because I had let him go due to him becoming very busy with his real job. So I was eager to get someone new to help with the occasional tech issue, upgrading, etc. After studying some of the support threads in this forum, I noticed that Makoto was not only often helpful on the boards, but also detailed and thorough. I contacted him and after a couple of back and forths, we agreed he could help me with my forum search situation. I found Makoto to be very knowledgeable and quick to respond to requests and questions. I was most impressed with how he was willing to briefly explain the how's and why's about the work he would do for me -- this is so helpful if you're like me who is not exactly an expert at IPS and server issues. I felt very comfortable that Makoto knew his craft and could handle issues that presented themselves. I would definitely recommend this services to other forum admins. --E.
  5. One way is to use the advertisements settings. System>advertisements --E.
  6. I tried to search for a thread about this here, but couldn't find anything. When a guest or any other member uses my regular search feature, the results they get show them an overly generous excerpt of each post on the results list, even if those posts are from forums the searcher does not have permission to access. This is not good, because upper permissions are being violated by the searcher being able to read up to 3 lines of text in those excerpts. How can I make it so that only the titles (without excerpt) will show for results? Or, how can I make it so that posts from a subforum one does not have permission to view don't show on the search results at all? Thanks for any clue, --E.
  7. I can't download IPB anymore as the download button is cut off, was going to report but saw it was already reported: http://community.invisionpower.com/bugs.html/ips-web-site-and-client-area-not-for-software-issues/download-window-cut-off-r49091/ Fix?
  8. I would love to be able to individually "protect" a post/thread/attachment so that the post/thread/attachment will not be deleted even when a member (or admin) removes all of a member's posts/threads/attachments. Reasoning: There are special and valuable threads that members post that you don't want altered ever, and to be able to lock in (protect) the content contained in those special threads would be very handy indeed. That way if a member or admin deletes that member's posts (for any reason... mass prunning, banning, etc.), at least the very special threads/posts/attachments won't be lost. If there is a way to do this already available, please excuse and direct me to the info, if possible. Thanks!
  9. Just to make sure we are all on the same page: Please note as stated in my original post, I'm referring to a forum where you set the settings as shown below, so that a given group can see the topic titles, but not the content of those topics. So what I'm saying is: Members who are allowed to see both the topic titles and the topic content, still see the "Protected forum" sign.
  10. At least in IPB 3.3.4, that is incorrect. Here is a screenshot of what a member with access sees when looking at one of my protected subforums: In the latest version of IPB has this been updated? If so, please excuse.
  11. Hi Raz, I don't know if understand your question, but... The access is not the issue, it's the wording that appears next to a forum title that a member sees even when he/she has access. When a member who has access sees "Protected forum", he/she may assume that access is not granted and move on, when in fact they can access the forum. For those who have access, it should read, "Protected forum, you have access." If you are new to IPB, then this special permission might be confusing.
