  1. ZackL added a post in a topic: Suggestion - Recheck members against IPS Spam Service   

    I posted a question over in the Client Lounge , but got told to re-post here since it's not currently a feature. :)

    Anyway, the idea stems from having my community license inactive for a while. The suggestion would be to allow administrators to force a recheck of all members (batch-processed perhaps for larger boards) against the IPS spam service.

    I realize this probably is a niche request though. Maybe someone else has a less-niche idea to attach to this idea? :)

    Mobile Skin - Link to Full Version doesn't work?
    Might be just me and the server the board's running on, but when I had a complaint today about someone flipping through the available skins and went to the IP.Board Mobile skin, they couldn't switch back.
     
    [quote name="iAmLegion3614" time="1355494465"]I was checking out the other themes for the forum and accidentally selected mobile, and now I'm stuck on that format. The button for 'full version' is greyed out.[/quote]
     
    I reset them back to community default via the ACP, but I went to check it out for myself and found out the button doesn't actually work. When clicking the link and having Chrome's console open, I don't see anything wrong or relating to it.
     
    Thanks,
    -Zack

    XML-RPC fetchTopics not respecting view_as_guest?
    May or not be a bug? Figured this was probably the place to report though.

    I'm a little worried about retrieving the "[u]ip_address[/u]" field from the database when I tell it I want to "view as guest".
     
    Bug or no? :)

    He's talking about updating easier, not necessarily auto-updating .

    Not to mention @Ticket System, I think there's a 3rd party app on the Marketplace that does it?

    edit: Although, it appears it hasn't been updated recently, likely because of IP.Nexus.

    Only explanation I have is a possible permission oversight (it happens) when your board was originally configured. Although, out-of-box I do believe things are secured (meaning html posting is disabled for all groups).

    Personally, I just pretty much setup the "Validating" group to guest permissions and restrict them from posting.

    Owner A would indeed be unhappy :(

    Great idea :)
  8. ZackL added a post in a topic: 3.4.0 beta?   



    I think he meant a downloadable copy from the QA area here. I personally want to take a look at the IPS Connect feature so I can start implementing it on an account system I've been wanting to make.

    Better question is how are your spammers getting through? Or are they human spammers with legitimate emails? If they're not human spammers, as long as you have an active IPB license, the IPS Spam Service should catch them. If it's not, try configuring its actions in: ACP -> System Settings -> Members -> Spam Prevention

    An idea you could do is moderate their posting (this might also moderate status updates for them - I don't use status updates personally).

    Another idea is to "Remove Status Update ability" from the group(s) you so desire.

    ACP -> Members -> Member Groups -> [select group] -> Global [tab] -> "Remove Status Update ability" => yes

    https://www.cometchat.com/ and

    Haven't used them personally, but I'm planning on trying them out in the next month or so. Have to get the money together for them.

    Alright, tried the 3.8 converter and it did the same thing

    -Zack

    [b]p.s.[/b] Side note, also had issues with PM conversions, but I'll submit another report for this when I get the logs from the server administrator (I don't have ftp access).
  12. ZackL added a comment: vB 3.7.2 to IP.Board 3.3.4   

    In my original thread, I was told it would probably be better to use the 3.6 converter as the converter could be expecting things that the forum I'm converting doesn't have.

    Although, that makes sense. I'll try [i]yet-another-conversion[/i] tonight using the 3.8 converter.

    Here's a link to the attachments I tried to link. http://community.invisionpower.com/topic/363286-vb-372-to-ipb-332-converter/#entry2315455

    vB 3.7.2 to IP.Board 3.3.4
    Attachments don't seem to have been converted. Converter says "500+" source rows, and local rows it says it's got none. It doesn't say it converted with errors, although there were tons of missing data shown on the final screen before you are taken back to the conversion screen.

    [b]p.s. [/b]I'm using the 3.6 converter since there isn't a 3.7 converter.
