Introduced in IPB 4.4 is a new DesignzShop feature called Topix Plus. Topix Plus is an extended enhancement to our other new 4.4 feature, Topix. Topix Plus extends what Topix does but in a different area for more control over your forum categories. Simply put, you can add a background color or image to a total of 5 forum categories.
As with Topix, you can elect to use just a background hex color with the automated picker or also use a background image. Topix Plus background images use css3 cover. Using automated settings in your themes acp you can adjust the background color, image, image position.
This feature is perfect for sponsored forums where you can give a sponsor a personalized background or you can use it to make a specific forum stand out. It's your choice. We will also consider in the future adding more options for more forums to be added, right now we have 5 open options for you to utilize.
Both Topix and Topix Plus takes priority/over-rides over a specific theme being used for a forum.
Pm me at IPB if you have any questions about this great new feature or just let us know what you think. We love hearing from you.
