@  Wotsit : (29 June 2015 - 09:27 AM) Our ticket has been referred to Tier II so am only going to do the test site
@  doctorsexy : (29 June 2015 - 06:26 AM) 409 is out
@  doctorsexy : (29 June 2015 - 02:51 AM) Sounds good
@  Wotsit : (28 June 2015 - 04:04 PM) No, nor did I with starting from scratch - just updating I have problems with. Trouble is it's a different problem each time.
@  doctorsexy : (28 June 2015 - 01:51 PM) funny i havent had a problem with it , but i started from scratch
@  Wotsit : (28 June 2015 - 11:28 AM) Every upgrade I've done so far results in different things. Only one was partially my fault for not noticing that their .htaccess didn't have a preceding dot
@  legion : (28 June 2015 - 07:39 AM) Wotsit and Sherri if you need a hand with anything let me know
@  legion : (28 June 2015 - 07:38 AM) WOW glad I have not made that switch to 4.0 yet :(
@  Wotsit : (28 June 2015 - 02:15 AM) Here we go again - ticket submitted. It's telling me I'm using a 3rd party theme when it's theirs :(
@  Wotsit : (27 June 2015 - 05:44 AM) Database exported - anything from here on in won't appear on IBTheme
@  Wotsit : (27 June 2015 - 03:32 AM) Well the nav bar was caused by me missing a dot off of htaccess :( - OK off to try again though none of this recent stuff may come out
@  Wotsit : (27 June 2015 - 03:21 AM) @pete I feel your pain - the last week has been spent uploading the files/database - didn't work / delete start again etc until we finally admitted defeat.
@  Wotsit : (27 June 2015 - 03:19 AM) I could understand it if on the precheck something indicated there wasn't enough memory or something but it all comes up green then doesn't work = so frustrating
@   The Old Man : (27 June 2015 - 01:26 AM) It's kind of funny seeing IBSkin on default mode! Weirds me out, on so many levels!
@  pete : (26 June 2015 - 02:57 PM) Sherri and Wotsit the last few days i been doing lots upgrades from 3.4.x to 4.0.x because IPS staff can't find time i been so busy it killing my time on updating apps/hook etc
@   The Old Man : (26 June 2015 - 01:53 PM) Sorry to hear of your frustration, have to admit it's been a nightmare experience for me too. IPS4 has become the Windows Vista of IPS products.
@  Sherri : (25 June 2015 - 04:54 PM) I'm right there hating it with you. I'm excited about what it CAN be, but it's not there yet. This is a total disaster, and IPS is evidently far too understaffed to handle the stressful workload that comes with all these issues. It wasn't ready for release yet, that's for sure. :(
@  Wotsit : (25 June 2015 - 02:38 PM) I'm beginning to hate 4.0 :(
@  Wotsit : (25 June 2015 - 02:32 PM) As you all know, we've been shut down for several days now trying to move IBSkin.com over to IBTheme.com and upgrade to IPB 4.0. After several attempts to get this accomplished, we have failed on each account and run into some pretty bad technical difficulties. For this reason, we have re-opened IBSkin.com and we have asked IPS to see if they can get us moved successfully. We'll keep everyone posted on the updates as we receive them, but for now, we will conduct business here on IBSkin as usual. IPS is really backed up right now and they are super busy so I don't expect them to be able to help us out as quickly as we would like, so we'll be patient and hope for the best. Meanwhile, I'm going to be working to get the new Red Pro 4.0 updated and then start pushing out new themes for IPB 4.0 Thank you all for your patience and understanding while we get this all sorted, and we are truly sorry for those that were inconvenienced by our closing this past week. Kindest Regards, Sherri & Wotsit IBSkin / IBTheme Management

Help Topic: Gallery


The gallery can be used to upload images you wish to share with the community. To access it, click the "Gallery" tab at the top of any page.

Gallery Home Page
The gallery has two areas: Categories and albums. Administrators will create the categories that you can upload images into, or create albums within. If you have permission to create albums, you will be able to create them within the categories that administrators designate as accepting new albums. The homepage may show a feed of recent images, featured images, categories and/or recently updated albums, depending upon the administrator's configuration selections.


Viewing Categories and Albums

Image Listing
You will see a tiled layout of images that the album contains. You can click on any thumbnail to see the full-size image. The information will initially display inline, allowing you to navigate the images without leaving the page, however you can view more details about the image by clicking on the image caption within the window.
If the category has any sub-categories or albums, you will see these listed.


Slide Shows
You may be able to see a slide show of all images in that category or album by pressing the slide show link when viewing the list of images. Click on the Slidehow link to enter the slideshow mode.



Viewing Images

Information, ratings and options
To the side of the image, you will see more information about the image such as who uploaded it, when they uploaded it, how many views and comments the image has, and how big it is.

You may see a number of stars which show the image's rating. You may also be able to rate the image yourself by selecting one of the stars. If you are able to rate an image, the stars will change color as you move your pointer over them.


To the side of the image you will see a photostrip of other images in the category or album, which you can use to quickly jump to those images. You can cycle through these images by clicking the < and > buttons to the left and right of the photostrip.

Sharing Images

Adding your Images

Clicking an upload link or button will take you to the media upload page. This is a two step process.
The first step is to select or create an album (or category) to upload the images into. Once the album or category has been set, you can upload images right away when the upload form reveals itself.
When you have uploaded the images you wish, you click the 'Review & Publish' button which will allow you to rotate the image or edit the image's details.
