  1. Why not add a css style to convert the case from lower to upper?
  2. TDB Posts is a Topic Feed Block with a lot of options to help display your Topics the way you want and... it's free. Just updated the Plug-in to version v1.04. This version has a lot of bug fixes, changes and new options. Changes from the previous version. 1. Change: Re-wrote most of the widget coding. Being new to IPS I used wrong functions that dealt with the plugin settings. 2. Change: Removed admin settings, all the plug-in settings are not done via the front end for easier management. 3. Fix: There was a missing file that prevented the plug-in from working correctly. 4. Fix: There was a caching issue that slowed the forum down with large databases. The plug-in now caches correctly. 5. Added: Honour Permissions: IPS forum hides posts that members do not have permission to see, toggling this will allow your members to see these posts. Same behaviour as the Default Topic Feed options. 6. Added: Group filtering, posts can be displayed from selected groups. 7. Added: Status, Pinned, Featured, Visibility and Approval options. Plug-in can now filter Topics/Posts via these different options. 8. Added: Authors: Topics/Posts can be filtered by multiple Authors. 9. Added: Minimum Posts, Topics can be filtered to show by the amount of replies. 10. Added: Filter Topics by a set amount of days or from the beginning. 11. Added: Sort by pull down menu. You can now sort by Default, Recently Updated, Title, Most Commented, Start Date and Most Viewed. 12. Added: By Default, IPS Topic Feed only displays the first Topic information regardless of how many replies the Topic has. With this option, you can elect to use the last posters information and comment. 13. Added: Display Hidden Files Only. You can now filter the block feed to only display Hidden files. Excellent for your moderation team. 14. Added: Post Dates, enable to disable the post date from being displaying in the block. 15. Added: Topic Forum, enable or disable the Topic Forum from being displayed. 16. Added: Mini Pagination, enable or disable Pagination from being displaced with the block. 17. Added: Best Answers, enable or disable the ability to display Questions that have been answered or requiring an answer on your forum. 18. Added: Polls, you can now filter the block to only display Topics that have Polls on your forum. 19. Added: Preview Post on hover. When hovering over the topic link in the block a preview will be displayed of the first and last post. 20. Bugs Fixes. Loads of little bug fixes and changes. Please let me know if you find any bugs, issue or would like to see any new features in the next version. Thanks.
  3. I have already sent you a private message over this matter, but you do deserve a public apology over this matter. I am sorry regarding my remarks that I made without first actually checking for myself and just presuming from a few comments in the reviews section. I should have contact you myself and been informed from first hand experience. I apologise for doubting your sincerity or your character on here. My bad.
  4. The problem with this plug-in is the lack of caching and the amount of time it takes to fully load. Our members complained that it took up to two minutes and we had to remove it. We were going to report this to the developer but noticed in the reviews section that people tried to contact the developer without success but he is quick willing to take his $10 though.
  5. TDB Posts

    There was an issue when I updated this plugin. Hopefully I will have a fix asap for this.
  6. Hi Kevin, Thanks, I had already thought about using your plug-in, but changed my mind as I felt it overkill for this. In the end I wrote a Task Hook to allow me to get what I wanted. Thanks again,
  7. Hence the reason why I was asking if we could have the ability to create custom Tasks via the Acp
  8. Is there any chance that Admins can have the ability to create custom 'Tasks' in the ACP please? I would like to be able to have Records in Pages have their 'Featured' switch removed after x amount of days, and this would seem the best way to approach this.
  9. Is there anyway to create a Poll on a Topic that has already been posted?
  10. Template System The script seems to be this one here, I have no who wrote it. Seems to be for Video's?
  11. Dear Developers, Can you please implement a proper File caching system instead of this store() pish! I would like to be able to store static content, which I know will not be wiped out every-time that the cache is cleared. Store() is NO USE for the job of storing static cache for the long term and to be quite frank... it's a PITA! You guys had a working file cache in version 3.1, and I cannot for the life of me understand why you removed this in v4? Can you please put it back and save us so much hassle of having to implement our own caching solutions. As with all other requests, I am sure this one will have as much success as my last few...... but here is hoping! Many Thanks,
  12. Let's try that from a end user point of view and someone who doesn't have an idea about development, creating widgets or turning on Dev mode. What you are saying isn't user friendly at all. The end user should just be able to go into admin/Block Manager, click new custom block and enter what they want and save. Without having to buy Pages or a custom block to do it.
  13. Creating custom blocks should be as standard with IPB and shouldn't need Pages. Most CMS's I have coded for, worked on and tinkered about with have had this for countless years.
  14. Support for this small plug-in. Questions, fixes, or changes please feel free to ask.
  15. Version 1.0.0


    What does it do? This plug-in prevents your members from trying to steal attention, by entering a title in purely uppercasing with lots of punctuation. The Plug-in will try and strip the text to a more readable format that is constant with your board posting guidelines. Plug-in Settings: Case Types: There are 5 different types of casing that you can use. No Modification, Sentence Case, Upper Case, Lower Case and Title Case. Excessive Punctuation: This tries to reduce excessive punctuation from the title. This will turn ??????? to ? and !!!!!! to !. Exception Words: These are word of your choosing that will never have their casing changed, regardless of your plug-in settings. If the word is upper case, all of these words in the title will be forced Upper case for example. Remove Characters: These are characters that will be removed regardless of how many there are in the title text. Names that begin with O', Mc or Mac will be processed automatically from o'neill to O'Neill or mcneill to McNeill. At the moment, only the Forum Topics and Pages Applications will have their titles changed. Please note: This is a RC version and use on a production site at your own risk.
