The forum, Gallery and Download areas have all been upgraded to their corresponding latest versions. Please feel free to check out the benifits and features of each, there are some nice new touches in IPB :D

Unfortunately a few issues occured with the Live Chat feature and it has, for now, been disabled until/if the original IBIRC author updates it to support the new IPB version(s). In the meantime there is a substitute in operation, simply click on the redirection link on the main index page and remember like before you will need to have Java installed for it to function correctly.

I omitted two things from the previous forum design; I removed the clock at the top right of the page and I removed the five random images from the Gallery at the bottom of the main index page. Will anyone miss the clock? As for removing the five random images I thought it may help to improve main forum index speed since some people have been saying they have as of late been experiencing reduced page loading speeds. If people want to see it back let me know.

If you come across any issues please post about it here:


Hopefully everything should be running smoothly as before. Happy posting!

I have made some modifications to the forum so that it now allows live linking directly in a topic or post and works via http://anonym.to//?

I will be giving it a trial run before making it final and edit the forum rules appropriately. Please try it out by posting your links as normal and without the code tags or http change. Example:


If you experience any problems please let me know. Happy linking... :)

Fixed the forum IRC client, now the original IBIRC client works again and should now be open for guests to use also... :)

Upgraded to IP.Gallery 2.2.0

New Features and Changes:

Use of IP.Board internal and alternative cache stores to reduce overhead

ACP language abstraction

IP.Gallery has been converted to a component from a module

Redesigned ACP interfaces for managing categories, post form, and groups

Post form fields automatically insert into the post form and image view page without manual skin edits

Import/export of media types to allow sharing of media type codes

Zip import capabilities for members

Latest images honor permissions accurately / Improved recursive latest image and count handling for albums and categories

Image dimensions display on fileview

Slimmed templates, better use of foreach and other html logic to make skinning easier

Added "Forum style" for album listings

Various image listing pages use the global settings (as opposed to hard-coded 9 image display)

Internal code overhaul - reduced queries, reduced number of queries in SQL cache files, less template files loaded

Improved search - search capabilities expanded, search results use image listing format

Improved full image popup options: show in new window, show in popup, use IPB attachment (Gallery 2.1) style, and lightbox integration capabilities

Added ability for members to choose default sorting for albums when creating them, added sort options to album view

Notification option for new comments to an image (with ability to subscribe during image submission)

Notification options for new images in a category or album

Control panel to manage notification options

Ability to view more than last 10 comments (view all, 10 per page, ordered by submission date desc)

Ability for administrators to disable private albums

Added easy bbcode options to image view page

Added ability to set an image as your avatar

Redesigned image view page slightly to clean it up a little

Added ajax controlled photostrip navigation

Added ability to find all images by a user from the Gallery tab in profiles

Ability to moderate albums, including move images to and from albums, hide and unhide images in albums, pin and unpin images in albums, etc.

Plus dozens of small cleanups here and there. Much of the work went into the backend - there was a lot of abstraction of common functions, and a lot of work put into making Gallery run more efficiently. There is now a much stronger base moving forward to work from than before, and adding new features should be much easier than it was previously.

Some forum upgrades and changes took place today:

IP.Board 2.3.2

This release is a bug fix and maintenance release for IP.Board. While there are skin changes to fix skin-related bugs, those changes are not critical. There is no need to revert your custom skin changes on upgrade if you are not experiencing problems.

IP.Gallery 2.2.1

This release is a bug fix and maintenance release for IP.Gallery.

You may also notice that we now have an offical Tuts 4 You skin, formerly IPB Pro skin. Thanks to Ecliptic for creating the nice logo... :D

The forum now has its own Blog page for all Full Members should you wish to use it :)

There are rules to using it but they are common and obvious rules to this board already so no one should have a problem with it. However I would appreciate it if people read up on the rules just in case:


Thank you and happy blogging... :thumbs:
