  1. Although basic, this does work. 1 > Start with the calendar. (ACP > My Apps > Calendar > Edit Calendar) 2 > Under "RSS Options" , set "RSS: Enable" to YES. 3> Set "RSS: Forthcoming Days" to the same as you have set for displaying on the board view (Tools / Settings > Calendar And Birthdays) "Show forthcoming events from today to [x] days ahead". It is important that these two match. In my case I have them set both at 14 days. 3 > Back to the calendar settings again and set "RSS: Update Frequency" to 1440 (1 day) 4 > Next set "Permission: Show Events" to make sure Guests can view events. This is needed for the exporter to work properly. 5 > Go back to the main calendar management screen and click on the options to rebuild the calendars RSS export. 6 > Visit your boards index page and click on the orange RSS icon. View the RSS and save the URL for later. This will be something like http://{Board URL}/forum/index.php?/rss/calendar/1-community-calendar/ 7 > Now visit the RSS import manager. (Forums > RSS Management > RSS Import Manager) 8 > Validate your URL feed in the validate box. Make a note of the character set (in my case this was ISO-8859-1) 9 > Next create a new RSS import. Fill in the information putting a description in and the saved URL and character set from earlier. Pick a forum / username for the import too. 10 > Leave the "RSS Import Refresh" at 200 as the events will only be exported daily, x days in advance, depending on what you set. I also chose to set the "RSS Import Topic Prefix" to "[Calendar] " (note the space afterwards) 11 > That's it! Be patient and do not run the calendar RSS cache or the RSS cache tools unnecessarily. It took it 14 days in my case (as that's what the events were set at) to begin to work but it does the job well. This was created by AndyF on various IPS modding sites

    Navigation Menu

    IP.Content 2.3 includes a new feature designed to help you build your forums and website out the way you want to: control over your primary navigational menu. The primary navigation menu is the the "tab" bar across the top of the page that includes links to each major section of your site. IP.Board builds this automatically based on the applications you have installed, but when you use IP.Content, you will likely find yourself creating new pages that you wish you could quickly link to in that same bar. It is possible to edit your skin templates manually to accomplish this, but this presents a few problems: Your template edits may need to be reverted when upgrading in the future in order to inherit updates in the skin in future releases. You will have to determine the logic necessary to show the tab as "lit up" when someone is viewing that page (and to ensure other tabs do not appear to be lit up). It is inconvenient repeating this process each time a new page is created. This is no longer a problem with IP.Content 2.3. You can now visit the "Navigation Menu" page available under the Settings module in the IP.Content ACP area and build tabs through an easy to use interface. You can control what order your tabs display in, and even put them before or in between default application tabs. You can control almost every aspect of the tab from the title, the textual tooltip, any additional non-default attributes (for instance, including a javascript click handler that will log the click in an analytics program) and more. You can even create submenus that will display on click or on hover, including many links underneath one tab. You can also modify many aspects of your default application tabs as well, going beyond what IP.Board offers by default. For instance, using this tool you can add additional attributes to your application tabs, change the title, and modify the textual tooltip shown when a user hovers over the tab. The best part about this new feature - IP.Content automatically figures out which tab to light up without any extra work on your part! We hope this new feature in IP.Content 2.3 helps you better control your site the way you want it to be.

    Sharing Links

    IP.Board 3.1 introduces a new feature that is available for any application to make use of: sharing links. IP.Content makes use of this feature in the custom databases (and articles) modules to allow you to more easily expose your content to a wider audience. Along with supporting sharing of your content with third party services such as Facebook and Twitter, you can now also send an article via email, print the article, and download the article easily by clicking the appropriate icon under the article body. The additional printing and downloading features allow the content to be shared, online as well as offline. Within the articles module specifically, the article image that you upload when posting the article (optionally) will automatically be flagged for use with Facebook when someone uses Facebook to share the link. This ensures that the correct image is the one Facebook displays to other users. Similarly, we pull out an appropriate extract of textual content for Facebook to use as well. If the user is logged in to Twitter or Facebook, sharing the content becomes even easier, not requiring you to even leave the site. We hope that by providing tools to make it easier to share content on your site, your content will be exposed to a wider audience, bringing you more traffic and making your content more easily and readily available to the world.
