  1. No offence to Kevin, I just don't like relying too much on 3rd party developers
  2. Would be nice if there was a way to alert members automatically when their post has been hidden, either by sending a default PM regardless of their inbox quota or settings. Another option would be a note to be left where their post was that only they and staff can see. Your post was removed by [insert moderators name] because [insert reason], similar size text to when a post is made by a user you have on ignore with a warning sign next to it. Can be time consuming having to contact each member every time a post is removed, if we don't contact members sometimes believe their post didn't go onto the forum for whatever reason and post again. Found it works well to let members know their post was hidden as other times they may not even realise, it's kinda like a reminder of the forum rules.
  3. I know, looked into it, just couldn't find an icon that looked right, everything I tried stood out like a sore thumb and sent my OCD nuts. I'm a master on Microsoft Paint but have a Macbook now so my artistic talents are limited to Google image search
  4. Exactly the same that I have running on my site now, works perfectly, only problem is I'm still forever telling people about it, feel like a trash can icon would be more obvious as to what it does.
  5. I would like to see more options to help us monetize our sites. Custom keys are great but it would be nice to include more default locations to select from. Forum display header and footer, topic header and footer, plus the ability to select which forums the advert will show in. The ability to select which forum the advert shows in should also be added to after first topic and first post. This would allow us to offer companies exclusive advertising to one board on the forum or say you have a electronic forum, you could place targetted affiliate links in each board. Would also be nice to select after 1st, 5th or x number of posts and topics. Within topics and boards are prime locations to display adverts. I'm sure others would love to see this made available, pretty please with a cherry on top x
  6. I have been using both his plugins now since they were made available. For this month I have 2 ads in between posts with a 65.99% active view viewable, I also have the other plugin with 2 ads between topics with 39.35% active view. Compare that to the header which is just using a custom key in the index, forum display and topic templates, no plugins 47.44%.
    Does exactly what it says on the tin. Should be a core option but hey ho.
  7. How do you revert it back? tried switching through themes but nothing and can't see any options to change?
  8. Demo site seems to be messed up a little?
  9. I was looking at adding a sidebar to my theme but knew some members would play up..."don't like change", would be nice to offer the same theme but without the blocks but not possible. Just an idea.
  10. Did the unread content preference make it into this release?
  11. Missed this, Lindy I love you!!!
  12. A suggestion which I think would make things a little easier on moderators, when hiding a post or topic a popup appears asking for the reason for hiding. It would be a great to have an option that alerts the member as to why it was hidden, I have 2 suggestions to do this, one would be a checkbox that could be clicked which would give you the option of automatically sending a PM to the member, including the reason which the moderator gave for hiding the post. Or for the member to acknowledge their post has been hidden the same way they would a warning but a much friendlier screen before they can continue to use the forum. This would stop follow up posts asking why their post was removed or reposting thinking that the post didn't go through to the topic properly. My football forum can be fairly busy on match days, especially when we lose which is quite common these days, emotions run high and it can be time consuming having to PM members whilst keeping up with a topic that can quickly reach 15 pages within a matter of minutes. I do have plenty of mods but there can be times where only one or two are online. This would make things so much easier.
  13. To turn off the popup go to System > Advanced Configuration (under settings) > Turn off Automatic Polling at the bottom. You can switch notifications back on if you like then and they will only appear in the bell icon at the top with no popup
