  1. I know there is an option to allow albums in certain gallery categories, however, would be nice if there was an option to force members to create an album within the category or give them the option of uploading to one of their existing albums. I can see it now, the gallery categories are going to be a mix of albums and individual photos. Also, in the previous version to this one (3.4.6), when you uploaded a picture to the gallery did it not either have a BB link you could share in a topic or when you posted that topic, gave you the option to choose gallery photos to display? The way it is currently, you would have to upload it into a topic as well as upload it in the gallery, you are then storing two versions of the same picture on your server, seems like a waste of resources. Am I missing something?
  2. I am attempting to install, however, it is telling me that my PHP mem limit is only 32mb...When I check as well as have the Host check, they confirm it is 128mb. Any ideas? Thanks!
  3. WOOHOO I have been asking for this forever!!!
  4. Ugh, cannot come up with a decent domain name!

      SWEET. Did you design the skin yourself, or have it custom made?

      @BrianGarcia, thanks very much!

      @openfire, thank you...no I had it made some time ago, it was never finished so I am trying to get it all done.

  6. Not sure what you mean? Not a good idea to put the forum ID or a good idea to put it? Not that I have found...would be really nice though!
  7. The URLs are quite close to the vbSEO URLs, except that ipb puts a forum number id in the url.
  8. Yeah Panupat, I tried playing with it and was like, what in the word am I doing...I still have no idea, I have it, but it is not installed for fear I will break something, lol.
  9. I would think that if non-validated members are unable to view profiles or post comments, that it would be reasonable to make it so that members, admins, mods, that do have access to post comments cannot post on those profiles. In other words, if you require members to validate their e mails prior to becoming a member, receiving PMs, restrict status updates, why let them receive profile comments? Just a suggestion :)
  10. My avatar picture was actually taken in the Alamo Lake, AZ area.

  11. Right there with you Nidoking. When it comes to the ipb vs vb discussion, ask 100 people get 100 different answers, lol. Now go buy ipb, cause I think I have more faith in their development plans.
  12. But what can I do with that but delete them? If I go into a topic or post and want to add one of those images again, I need to re-upload, yes? Or maybe I am missing something, which would be great! I do really like the flash uploaded though! For example, in vb if I attach an image to a thread and 6 months later want to attach that image to another thread, I do not need to reattach, I simply go into the asset manager (the same window that comes up when you attach an image) and select that image. No need to upload again. Dont get me wrong, I really like IPB and prefer it now to vb, just trying to give info on either side :)
  13. Oh one thing to consider also is the support. You have to renew your license every six months here in order to get support (even in the forums) whereas it is not like that with vb. With vb, even if you license runs out, you can still get support on the forums. Take it for what its worth, now go buy the ipb software :) In regards to the spam service, I have only used it shortly, however, it banned one of my sponsors...so not sure how much I like that, lol.
  14. Really? I have found quite a few, several within the blog as well as one in the notification options on IPB.
  15. I am going to play devils advocate for a second...I am not a fanboy of either, so do not take it that way. While yes it is true that vb 4.X has bugs, so does IPB 3.1.4...most of the bugs I have found in IPB 3.1.4 are missing phrases, however, they are very visible to the end user. Ok devils advocate complete. Now between vb 4.X and IPB 3.1.4, I feel that IPB is much more tightly integrated...this was a big one for me. I think that vb is easier to design skins for, atleast that is the impression I get from my designer. I look forward to a new IPB layout with 3.5 as well as the new gallery system...vb needs to come up with a gallery system, the album system just is not going to cut it. I do like the new vb attachment system where it stores all your attachments so if you ever want to attach the image to another post, you can just go into the asset manager and select the image. No looking around on your computer for it, it is already there. Not to mention, it is not a duplicate image on the server taking up space. For the vbCMS vs the IP Content, lol well can't give much input as I have NO idea how IP Content works...not sure, maybe I am not smart enough to figure it out. As I said, they are both good...I am looking forward to building my new site with the IPB Suite.
