Introducing the new Downloads Portal


Sam

As the modifications for Grand Theft Auto V keep rolling in, we've been hard at work developing a brand new downloads section to better host, categorize and display the masses of new content on offer.

Featuring two entirely homepages, the new Downloads Portal creates the perfect distinction between GTA IV and GTA V content - this makes finding all of the latest files for your chosen game that much easier.  

Among the other changes are the reintroduction our advanced filtering system, allowing for downloads throughout all categories to be filtered by attributes specific to that category, and a much friendlier interface which emphasises content over clutter.

First time I seen it, thought I was on an entirely different forum. Looks nice

So it is a requirement to login before even VIEWING the downloads section? Because I am unable to at least view them from my phone or work computer without logging in

Not intentionally, but looks like there's a bug that means you have to. I'll probably iron this out on Monday.

This is definitely not from IPS, I'm interested who made it and I had admins from other website, including me that are definitely interested in having the same layout. looks 10x better than the ipdownload default layout. also seems the site increased amount of allowed featured files so it can showcase more on slideshow.

So are you guys willing to post on community.invisionpower.com and share your content? damn great job :smile:

Plus! to update you all including the owners (sam) IPS will be releasing IPS Community Suite 4.1 Read me here https://community.invisionpower.com/blogs/entry/9737-ips-community-suite-41-preview-available/  Yes I can't wait to install the new 4.1 there is so much options and I had fun with the preview

This is custom, I think. As for 4.1: IPS updates now make me nervous.

I agree with you on that (nervous), where custom made pages or side widgets might not support with 4.1 or after upgraded might be lost. However no need if you have backups. But who care! right! after playing around with the preview of 4.1 we all going to love it :smile:

So much options.

It has been made internally to suit our needs. It is our first big project on IPS4. 

I'm unsure about making it available for purchase, it's currently pretty specific to LCPDFR.com.

All I have to say is, (More) featured downloads! A lot of mods on that, also, the featured downloads bit in the forums was removed (it was broken)

Properly still got allot of errors to fix up or improvements. Hope you guys are ready for PHP7 It be released in November 2015, I'm definitely looking forward to the new change. PHP7 has backwards Incompatible changes with new features. My personal favorite addition to PHP 7 is the addition of the combined comparison operator, otherwise known as the spaceship operator.

I don't think we'll be using PHP7 for at least 2 or 3 years, I trust PHP as much as I trust IPS on new version releases; not much.

Looks good. Less using Google with site: intitle: inurl: etc, just to find stuff.

Another version bump... *looks into IPS' crystal ball* I see... 10 times less features than 4.0. I see... more moving away from a forum, towards yet another terrible social networking site. I see... a swarm of bugs that makes all recent AAA video game releases look stable.

Hey! If PHP developers worked the way IPS does with IPBv4, PHP 7 would have only two functions, echo() and php_info(), and only php_info() would work!

PHP 5.3 & 5.4 are PHP 6. The 6 features were backported and they skipped to 7. Think of it like Windows 9. Except there was a reason for skipping the number other than major version inadequacies. *looks at Google Chrome*

Invision power has released 4.0.13.1 with more little fixes. I updated then a hour later the theme got messed up with allot of 404 errors. that sucks. Easy fix!. Just do a fresh install of the theme, then taken 20mins to decode it all again for my needs.
