This is a great addition! A couple of things I noticed: 1. The above mentions an option to turn on embeds in the control panel. I didn't see this - but I also noticed that embeds are now already on. Awesome. 2. Ads. It's great that you added this - but in terms of usability and revenue it should hopefully be tweaked. Perhaps there should be an option to put an ad at the top and at the bottom of the page, similar to how an ad looks currently at the bottom of the page when you turn it on. As...
Hello cdub, You should be able to find the setting to turn off embeds within the control panel at: CP -> Forums -> Master Settings -> Advanced within I believe the "Miscellaneous Settings" section. Should be the top option. We thought about it and decided that this setting should be a all or nothing type deal. Thanks for the recommendations with the Ads. Sounds like a great idea. Regarding the Login Widget. All customization should be done through the CSS. We provide VERY basic CSS...
Let's see... Video embeds: CP -> Forums -> Master Settings -> Advanced -> Miscellaneous Settings -> Enable Video Embed UBBCode Login Widget: Look for this month's newsletter for some basics, and a FAQ to be posted here with more detail. Ads: You can already put an ad on the top or bottom of the page via style settings, these are, as you accurately pointed out, between every X number of posts or forums. You are right, there are conditions where the ad may not appear. If you...
Re the widget - is there a list of all the CSS classes? Can you change the size of the Avatar? I'll take a look at the source of the widget as you suggested as well. Re Dave and putting an ad on the top and bottom. Yes you can - but it is separate from the forum. The inline ads include the ads within the forum and (hopefully) make them more noticeable and attractive to visitors. The other problem I'm running into when figuring out how to use it is that Google Adsense only allows 3 ads to be...
Hello cdub, I cant wait to see what you come up with, so please, link here to your site when you are done. If you have further questions about how to customize the features in this release could you put in question support tickets for them? I think that would help us keep this ticket clean and make it a bit easier for people who may have the same questions to get their answers as well. Thanks, Jonmark
Can you please explain further how to use the embed feature. I cant seem to make it work. On my forum when I click the filmstrip icon all that happens is flash tags drop in my message. On this support forum, when I click the filmstrip I get a popup window to fill in some information. My forum is http://lanceowners.infopop.cc/eve Thanks Eric Dye
When you press the filmstrip icon you get some code that goes into your post that says something like [flash video] [/flash video] All you need to do it post your embed code inbetween those two pieces of code in your post.
When you go to a youtube video, you will see a embed link below the video that when clicked shows a textbox preselected. If you copy that text and paste it between the flash video ubbcode tags the post should include the youtube video. I hope that helps, Jonmark
This is an offtopic post because when I click on "Post" I only get a totally white screen, so replying to a post is the only way I can see to post anything right now. I have a question about how to access my web control panel so how can I post a support ticket? thanks Shaun
Reference: I have a question about how to access my web control panel so how can I post a support ticket? To create a support ticket you have to check Private Topic: Only You And Company Staff Will Have Access To This Topic (at the very bottom, just above Post Now button) while creating a new topic.
Shaun has created a ticket, but just to clarify, you do not have to check the "Pivate Topic" box. You only need to do that if you want to keep your inquiry completely private. We look at all incoming topics and we'll mark them as xsupport tickets as necessary, whether they are private or not.
It is in your Eve Control Panel: Go to Eve>>Members>>Private Messaging. Once there, click the Manage tab, and search for the date range you'd like to act on. Once you have the search results, you can delete them from there.
Does it have to be the "actual link", or will a "relative path" work too? Actual link: http://www.socialstrata.com/images/socialstrata.ico Relative path: /images/socialstrata.ico If I already have mine inserted in the "Custom HTML" of the "Style Editor " Do I need to delete them too? BTW: Excellent addition to this platform!
Bill, I would lean toward the side of caution and go full URL with this. You can remove it from the the Custom HTML as it'll no longer be needed, but if you don't remove it there will be no harm done. The important thing is that by using the control panel setting the default social strata icon is removed from the header.
Also, can the file be bmp or gif? Or must it be .ico ?? And... I've uploaded the file to rotation.org/favicon.ico and put the url in the control panel, but it's not appearing. Is there a lag time for your server on this? If so, that should be noted.
I'm using IE and have cleared the cache several times. Still not appearing. Various web reports about this issue seem to indicate that webpages need some extra code to force it with some browsers, including IE. Here's a guy's blog who used to work for Microsoft. He has an FAQ about how to deal with favicon issues. http://jeffcode.blogspot.com/2...-my-site-appear.html Oother people's fave icons are working in my IE browser. Loaded right up.
Now I'm really confused! I just went in with my other computer to try to administrate the situation; and I could do the functions which I cannot do on this laptop. Why are my admistrator functions working on one computer and not on my other computer (my laptop, which I'm using for this message reply. wrb
Hi, Bill: Is it possible that you have more than one user? I know that I have one with administrator permissions, and one without, so I can mimic the user experience if necessary. If that's not the issue, try logging out on the machine that doesn't recognize you, and logging back in. If that doesn't work, try clearing the browser cache.
Hey guys, I'm the other person with admin rights / permission for Battleplanministries.org. I just worked with Bill to resolve the issue with no positive results. Here is what we did: 1. Using Windows Expolore Browser, cleared temp files, and history. 2. Re-accessed the forums, I was able to post my own reply, edit that reply. Edit Bills post on a topic, also access the control panel. 3. Bill was only able to access the forum, he was able access the control panel and post a topic. He is not...
I thank my Co-Administrator and friend, Dave, for his help and for the two, obviously knowledgeable folks who've tried to help. It is very curious to me that the system recognizes my ID/password; and when I'm our Forum community - battleplanministries.org/eve - it allows me to pull up the control panel or to enter the Moderator's Forum, which says to me that the system recognizes me as an Administrator with Moderator Permissions. Yet, I cannot do what any forum member can do on my laptop ...
April ... thanks for caring enough to provide a very good suggestion. Sometimes the best thing to do is the most obvious. But I did think of that; and I've also rebooted the laptop (where I'm having the problem) as well. What I can't figure out is why the system recognizes me as having Administrator permissions, because it lets me into the Control Panel (which only forum administrators can do); and then once in our Eve Community, it lets me into the Moderator Forum, which I established for...
Hello Bill, I seem to remember earlier in the thread you mentioned that you could do all of those things when you were signed in as the same user on a different machine? Is that correct? Before we really start digging into permissions I just want to make sure I have the full scope of this issue.
Yes, Jonmark, when I sign-in to our Eve Community on my Dell PC, I can do all the things which my Administrator permissions allow me ...  go to the Control Panel, to manage members,  edit/delete posts (my own and others, and  to enter our Moderator's Forum (for our battleplanministries.org/eve community. However when I sign on (with the same email ID/password) on my Vaio Laptop, I can do 1, 2, and 4 above (and some other functions); but I can't enter the "Edit" icon or even open...
It should be noted that Bill, was able to complete any tasks he wanted to, using his laptop, up until this past week. Bill correct me if I'm wrong, but you didn't download or update any software on your laptop, prior to this issues start, correct.
Hey David and Bill, Finally, to confirm one more thing: David, you logged into your account on Bill's laptop and were able to do all of the things that bill is for some reason prevented from doing? Is that correct? Do the functions that you are prevented from doing even show up on the page, or are they missing entirely? If they do display do you get an error when trying to do them or something else?
Jonmark, Oops, no didn't try that yet. I will provide Bill with the necessary information so he can try it, We are not located in the same offices. Will advise results. Thanks so much for the reminder (can't believe I forgot that simple diagnostic).
Jonmark ... My friend David is right. He has Administrator privileges in our community as a Co-Administrator. And he has been able to do all the things I'm having trouble with. ... Now ... no, I have not added or changed any software prior to this problem cropping up on my laptop. ... When I try to hit the edit icon or the reply key, I get a little clicking noise and an indicator that an error is blocking what I'm trying to do; and I simply am blocked in trying to edit/delete a message or to...
Oh now we're getting somewhere. Thanks for that last bit of info, Rev. Bill. Do you happen to know what browser version you're using? David mentioned you are using internet explorer. It could be version 6, 7, or 8.
The good news is that you will be able to use your laptop for administering your forums. It could be an issue with the browser (we'll figure out what's causing this issue). In the mean time, a possible solution is to use an alternate web browser. You could try downloading firefox and see if that'll get you the immediate access that you would like. http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/switch.html
WEll, my friends ... my problem seems to be solved ... I've tried the pop-up blocker settings change ... even turned them off ... to no avail; but I just downloaded Mozilla Firefox; and when I use that browser in in lieu of IE ... bingo! Works fine. So, as soon as I can discover how to make Firefox my default browser it will be Sayonnara IE on my laptop ... Thanks to all of you for your help ... Bill
