  1. Your customization of CSS3 Mega Drop Down Menu is little short of brilliant. Interested in sharing how you added the feeds into the menu at

  2. Nevermind, figured it out This worked: <if test="cardOnline:|:$post['author']['_online']"> <span>your online stuff</span> <else /> <span>your offline stuff</span> </if>
  3. May you point out where this code is located in the default skin so I can activate it without using hook? I tried this, but it won't work because $members variable isn't on topic view template? <if test="cardOnline:|:$members['_online']"> <span>your online stuff</span> <else /> <span>your offline stuff</span> </if>
  4. Thank you for the replies, I will try these options to see if fix and let you know :)
  5. It seems that ANY font set to bold in IE9 is "too bold" and hard to read. Is this an issue with my browser only, or do you notice the same thing? The problem really seems to stand out when using a white font on a dark background, such as a header. It's frustrating... even using like a size 13 arial with bold font weight looks bad... I don't want to be forced to use font-weight: normal on H1/H2/H3/H4 headers :( Any suggestions?
  6. Glad to help ;)
  7. I want to allow guests to post comments and new forum topics in certain forums...but I can't allow it because there is no "Question & Answer" challenge available for posting/commenting as guests... I'm afraid the spam will be too much. (ReCapcha doesn't stop them) I wish they would add Question & Answer Challenge for Guests posts/comments
  8. Here is an example... I wanted to add a right sidebar to my Topic View, so that when people browse topics in the forums they see my sidebar content. By default, there is no sidebar on topics. You have to add these DIV with the desired CSS Class to your related template. ACP > Look & Feel > Templates > Topic View > TopicViewTemplate I added this: Put this BELOW the stuff that should stay at the top, above the sidebar <div class='ipsLayout ipsLayout_withright ipsLayout_largeright'> <div class='ipsLayout_right'> Your sidebar content goes here </div> The rest of your page, THAT YOU WANT ABOVE THE FOOTER content goes here (topics etc.) </div> Footer stuff here You can change the desired width etc inside ipb_styles.css
  9. You can easily make a global sidebar in IP.Content feed blocks. I have global sidebars on my IPB 3.2 site and it works just fine. For example: - Make some feed blocks you want via IP.Content (ie: Recent Topics, Recent Blog Entries, Recent Images, New Members, Recent Status Updates). - Add a div with the right sidebar CSS class onto the page templates you want the sidebar to appear on (Gallery, Members, Topics, Board Index, Blogs, Content, etc.) - Paste 1 line of code that each feed block gives you Want to add other custom widgets, advertisements, etc. to your global sidebar? - Make custom blocks via IP.Content and put your html, php, java, etc. in your custom block and then just paste the 1 line of code that each custom block gives you Global Sidebar code example: <div class='ipsLayout_right'> {parse block="my_custom_advertisement"} {parse block="my_custom_widget"} {parse block="recent_forum_topics"} {parse block="recent_blog_entries"} {parse block="my_custom_html_php_java_thing"} {parse block="recent_gallery_images"} {parse block="new_members"} {parse block="recent_status_updates"} {parse block="my_custom_advertisement_2"} </div> Now, my sidebar has 5 feed blocks, 2 custom advertisements, 1 custom widget, etc. on it and it will work globally on all your IP applications and pages. Just paste that code into the desired page template and update the CSS class of the main wrapper so that it accounts for the sidebar being there.
  10. Excellent, that worked perfect, thank you for the fast response. This is a great add-on and I recommend it to anyone!
  11. That was fast :) Thanks I'll look for your reply.
  12. Hello, I just purchased this and I'm having an issue I need your help with. I have a forum that I want to force a default prefix to be selected by default (for SEO purposes) I have created the prefix under the "manage prefixes" area of your application, I made it usable to members, admin, moderators and I highlighted the forum I want it to be available in. Now I went inside that forum and chose "Use this prefix as default" and it shows the one I created... But everytime I go to this forum and try to create a topic it is not selecting that prefix by default, it is selecting "None" by default and then listing this prefix as an option below it. How can I fix this to automatically select this prefix by default? (this is the whole reason I bought your app - great for SEO hehe) Appreciate your assistance :)
  13. Ok thank you gentlemen ;o
  14. I am beginning to think that bfarber is a machine... don't think he sleeps
  15. I'm confused why this post was moved out of technical support forum and into this feedback forum? This post is general questions related to the wrap-up and conclusion of a technical support scenario >.> I was hoping tech support could reply lol
