  1. Alex added a post in a topic: European Union cookie law. Yes another topic!   

    I am of the opinion that it's up to you as a site owner to make sure you comply to local laws. If IP.Board implements this cookie law for example, what would stop some customers from another country demanding that their laws are adhered to? Things like this, and COPPA (which is another silly law) compliance are definitely up to the site owner :smile:

    Just do what the BBC and the majority of major UK sites I have seen use, put a small banner at the top that says along the lines of "By using this site you agree to us storing cookies, leave now if you do not wish to". IP.Board wouldn't have stored anything by that point.
  2. Alex added a post in a topic: Big Board Conversion   

    Yes it is, though that specific change only applies to vBulletin conversions at this stage, we can roll it out to others with ease if requested but vBulletin is where we see the bulk of the very large forums coming from.
  3. Alex added a post in a topic: Conversion from phpBB3 to IPBoard   


    You can setup the forums to how you wish before rolling out, however at roll out you will need to reconvert any area which has changed (so usually members, topics, posts, pms, and attachments.. in that order). You won't need to create a new install of IP.Board.

    You would also have to visit the recount and rebuild areas after your second conversion to make sure all the caches are up to date :)
  4. Alex added a post in a topic: Big Board Conversion   

    The new converters are available for testing only. If you have a large forum, or you're converting and finding the converters are too slow please submit a ticket for my attention and I will send you the download so you can try out the new improvements. All being well they'll be available for everyone shortly :)
  5. Alex added a post in a topic: Problem with upgrade support tickets?   


    I'm sorry for your frustration, could you PM me the ticket ID please and I can look into what's happened here?
  6. Alex added a comment on a blog entry: New Bug Tracker, powered by IP.Content   

    Wolfie - where as you could recreate a bug tracker in IP.Content (as we have done), it was done to suit us better. If you want a bug tracker on your forums, Tracker is still being developed.

    I think you're reading way too much into a number which just gives a bit of credit to the contributors. You make a change to a language string, you get a 'commit' added to your account. People that have more have worked on more than one language pack. As for why yours isn't showing 7000 I don't know, but I don't think its the best use of anyones time to see why you don't have 7000 showing under your account?

    The language pack is complete, and you have credit on 99.9999999% of that pack, that's all that matters surely? :)

    With all due respect, I have been working on other things as well, and the bug you are reporting is hardly show stopping, it doesn't stop you being able to translate or download packs, it just marks a few strings as updated due to the symbols - on the grand scale of things I'd say that was a pretty low priority bug.

    I'll look at these, but these are all relatively minor problems.

    Search is working for me - it may have been fixed by me sorting the other things out though.

    Not a bug, if someone comes along and updates all the translations we don't want peoples previous contributions to be forgotten about, seems wrong to remove them.

    Cannot reproduce.


    Not too sure what you mean here, special characters seem to be displaying fine for me.
  10. Alex added a post in a topic: Bugs in the Translations-feature   

    Just to keep you updated on this, we are working on these issues you have pointed out and will let you know when the system is updated here. :)
  11. Alex added a post in a topic: Bugs in the Translations-feature   

    The issues that are being pointed to are issues within IP.Board itself though (such as not being able to upload a language pack), I'm not sure what news to give really.. :unsure:
  12. Alex added a post in a topic: Bugs in the Translations-feature   

    This was fixed, the reason it happened was because the main progress bar looked at *all* language strings, and there were 800 strings that hadn't been translated into Hebrew - turns out this was due to IP.Tracker, sorted that and you now show at 100%.
  13. Alex added a post in a topic: Bugs in the Translations-feature   

    92% is correct then, 92% is an average with System having the biggest effect on that percentage because it has the most strings. Seems the Gallery import went a bit iffy if it's saying they're out of date. I'll see why Gallery is playing up.

    As for the 98% completion issue - there are several untranslated strings, we'll get that area sorted ASAP though.

    My post is directed to Jean's bug report which is a high priority due to the export function not working. Your concerns will be looked at shortly.

    You visited but forgot to leave me a message :(

    IP.Tracker 2.1 Beta 3 is virtually unusable in IPB 3.2.3! Please help when you can. It's a great mod and it's a shame if it isn't made more compatible with the latest version of IPB.

  4. Alex

  19. AndyF » Alex

    Tracker's looking good now its on here :) , 'real world' test is best as it was quite stable. I am not aware of a bigger tracker db than here.
