  1. AnthonyKinson added a post in a topic: License key warning on localhost   



    I was just directed to this message after requesting a change in my licensed URL. This is really helpful stuff. The only question i have is regarding purchased add-ons. With the "Test Key" i noticed your purchased add-ons are not listed in the service list associated with your license key. Will this effect being able to use for example IP.Gallery on my development installation?

    There ya go, a version with the dot.

    Still waiting for IPS to start producing these so i can have one :lol:
  3. AnthonyKinson added a post in a topic: This sites hosting - load times - server load etc.   

    Im on here almost all day everyday and generally it loads pretty well, however this week there has been the occasional problem. For example, just took me over a minute to load the board index (which is why i'm in this topic) but now everything seems fine again.

    I'm also on a fiber optic 50meg connection and everything else was loading fine so I've excluded my internet being a possible cause. It is very rare that this does happen, but its been a bit more frequent over the last week (frequent being maybe 3 or 4 times this week).
  4. AnthonyKinson added a post in a topic: More complaints about View New Content   

    I'm confused... "Show new content since last visit" does exactly that. Its showing you any new content since you logged out. If you see one topic in the list, then log out, and log back in (as you have done) and it's no longer there, its because it's not had anything new posted in it since you logged out. I thought that was how it was supposed to work, otherwise it should be called "Show Unread Posts / Topic"
  5. AnthonyKinson added a post in a topic: THIS SUCKS! Not getting any help!   

    My advice would be not to keep replying to tickets. If my knowledge is correct each time you reply to a ticket it jumps to the bottom of the list, meaning longer waiting times.

    You can always post in the support forums to to help you get the ball rolling in the right direct to the cause of the problem while your waiting, so at least you don't feel like your sitting around waiting.

    This looks nice, but... where are the App tabs / buttons / navigation.

    didn't think this would be announced so soon, great job so far :D
  8. AnthonyKinson added a post in a topic: What are the advantages of IPB compared to [...]   

    I can't really say anything about vB other than what i've read, but the way i look at it, IPS Applications / products / services just keep getting better and better, there's no debate on if IP.Board 2 is better than IP.Board 3, with each major release of IP.Board there are some major enhancements, improvements and features added. Where as with vB (as you have stated) there are mixed opinions.

    IPS are a great company who have YOUR best interests in mind, they often go way beyond there stated level of support to get you where you need to be, their always developing new ideas to respond to community demand.

    When it comes down to it, IPS have a solid reputation, where as vB's reputation is a little bit shakey shall we say.

    I'm not just taking sides as a IPB user, currently i don't run an active forum, i just develop apps / mods and so on. The reason i've decided not to even bother devloping my apps for vB is simply because their reputation is going no where fast and large majority of vB users are switching over to IP.Board all the time.

    Other than that, it all comes down to your personal taste, if its customization and control your after, IPS works very hard to make everything easy as possible to modify your forum to look and work exactly how you want it to.

    :lol: always best to explain for the people who don't know what it is

    Bouncy Blizzard 1.1.1 Now Available
    Enjoying the snow?

    Well, Bouncy Blizzard v.1.1.1 is now available to download which includes a couple popular feature requests. First of all, Group Permissions. You can now control which groups see the Bouncy Blizzard Hook (great if you have a group dedicated to people who don't love snow) additionally, you can control which groups can control the snow, again, great if you want to force people to see the snow, but not be able to control or disable it.

    Another popular request I had was to add a setting to be able to change the stacking order of the snow. Well, that's now included with v1.1.1 too. The CSS Stacking Order or "zIndex" defines the order in which elements are placed on top of each other. The higher the number, the higher up it's stacked. Some of you who have been using the snow in the banner Area of your forums will have noticed that the snow falls behind the user controls area (on the default skin). Increasing the Stacking Number for Bouncy Blizzard would make the snow fall infront of the user controls. Hopefully you all understand how that works.

    Last of all, there's been a few typo fixes and an improvement to the starting of the snow which should make things a little bit smoother when loading.

    Don't forget, if you have any ideas or suggestions, visit the Support Topic and let me know.

    Stay Frosty

    I can't edit them, a moderator will need to. Usually they update automatically when you edit the file in the marketplace.

    As for the error message, i have not got a clue about that, probably best contacting one of the staff about it.
  12. AnthonyKinson added a comment on a blog entry: Bouncy Blizzard: Snow For Your Forum   

    Since all of my Paid applications are no longer in the new Marketplace because of integration issues with my licensing system, i had no paid files here. So for me to keep coming here to create resources, it has to be worth my time. Currently, the only file i sell here is Bouncy Blizzard at $5, yet I'm here all day every day working on lots of things for people, such as updates, giving support, answering PM's.

    After commission on sales is taken out, developers don't really earn that much money for being here and creating these resources. I certainly don't anyway.

    I think most prices are fair, considering the amount of people that demand updates, new features and support for these products.

    Bouncy Blizzard: Snow For Your Forum
    Christmas is coming, your forums looking flat. get yourself some snow it will change all that!

    Christmas jingles aside, it's that time of year again, the time when we all wish for snow this Christmas (and usually let down) and hope for all those cool new gadgets and devices that seem to have been sold out everywhere. Luckily, when it comes to the internet and forums, we can change all that. While I can't hand you out a big box of the latest gadgets, I can give you unlimited amounts of snow that's guaranteed never to run out (or your money back).

    Bouncy Blizzard is a cross browser highly customizable hook for IP.Board that gives you ultimate control over the snow storm on your forum. It gives you the ability to localise your snow, meaning you can have it snow full screen across your forum, or simply have it snow in your forums banner. Along with that the speed and direction of the snow will change, and the wind direction will even follow your mouse pointer.

    In addition to all the cool features Bouncy Blizzard offers you, there's also lots of new Christmas themed skins from the talented skin designers, so why not grab yourself a beautiful new holiday skin, and introduce some snow with the Bouncy Blizzard hook, IP.Board has never looked so great!

    For more information about the Bouncy Blizzard hook for IP.board, visit the marketplace listing here: http://community.invisionpower.com/files/file/2806-bouncy-blizzard/

  14. AnthonyKinson added a post in a topic: ACP Comments Manager   

    Not sure if v4.0 has this, but a comments manager in the ACP would be fantastic. Basically a list of all comments and what images they were made on with options to delete, un-approve and so on. Maybe also an option to remove all comments by a certain member.

    EDIT: Sorry, this was supposed to be in the feedback section, if somebody could move it that would be great :)
  15. AnthonyKinson added a post in a topic: Why is Nexus Encoded with Zenguard?   

    I always enjoy these "encoded" topics.

    Most software is encoded these days, the fact that almost all of IPS products are not encoded is pretty good of them. With that in mind, IPS would only encode something if they thought it to be absolutely needed (as they have stated).

    I don't get what the big deal is, most of you would never need to edit or modify any of the files anyway, and zend / ioncube are openly avilable.

    Saying that, since the launch of IP.Board 3, i've never even had to edit a single file with my forums either. They have done a brilliant job with the hook / app system and provides almost everything that is needed to make even the most significant changes.

    I've asked this already, where is the Bouncy Radio support for 3.2?

  2. AnthonyKinson

    I'm going to have to say that my favorite new feature of IP.Board 3.2.0 is the AdminCP button opening in a new window.

  3. Matt Enloe » AnthonyKinson

    Hey, do you not support Bouncy Radio anymore?

  4. AnthonyKinson

    Visual Skin Editor... VERY Impressive. Nice to see Local Storage being used :D

    1. rsyvarth

      Are they using the HTML5 Local Storage? It seems more likely that they will be using cookies..

    2. AnthonyKinson

      i'm certain i heard matt say the visual editor popup was using the browsers Local Storage when navigating between pages. It's the same thing i used for the sticky notes hook.

    3. Rikki

      Yes we use localstorage to keep state between pages :)

    4. AnthonyKinson

      I'm really impressed with the HTML 5 and CSS3 usage in 3.2.0, i've been pushing it in my apps for a while now, it lets you do so much more ^_^

    5. .Peter

      So for people using IE7 they're just S.O.L. on the Visual Editor?

    6. rsyvarth

      They could save the skin in between each page load... or they could upgrade their browser like a sane person.

    7. .time

      @.Peter I don't think anyone competent enough to run a forum still uses IE7.

      (...or IE at all ...*ducks*)

  5. AnthonyKinson

    The new 3.2.0 skin is starting to grow on me :)

    1. Andrej

      Agreed. Also so easy to change which is nice.

  6. AnthonyKinson

    cant get used to this new skin, just feels bulky :(

    1. ash somers

      yeah i'm not overly wrapped, i think they got it right with the last one; why fix what wasn't broken?

    2. ørret

      That's why we got skinners.

    3. Michael

      I rather like it myself. Lots of people said the old skin *was* broken. Just goes to show you that you can't please everyone.

    4. ash somers

      i tried to like it, honest :p

    5. AnthonyKinson

      theres some parts of it i like, but it feels like a step backwards, doesn't look or feel as professional as before

  7. AnthonyKinson

    4. AnthonyKinson

      Yeah it's Bouncy Xbox Live, was a message for BXBL users who all pretty much know the abbreviation :)

    5. ørret

      Ah OK. Thanks.

  8. AnthonyKinson

    BXBL 2.3.0 FINAL finished! w00p! just building the installer and running upgrade tests :D

    £77.50 for a new passport, £20 for replacement driving license... my week just gets better and better -_-

    1. ørret

      I wish you good sales! ;)

    2. AnthonyKinson

      it's just the fact it's bad enough when your wallet is stolen, let alone having to pay ridiculous amounts of money to have your cards replaced :( bank wanted £10 per stolen card off me too.

    3. Olivier Turbis

      Wow, driving licenses are cheap where you live.

    4. Planetby

      :O £77.50 for a passport now, jeez i best put mine in the bank to be safe then lol......Bad luck Anthony, hope the thievin gits rot in hell

    5. AnthonyKinson

      Olivier, thats just the price for a replacement, its £50 otherwise.

    6. AnthonyKinson

      driving license - http://www.direct.gov.uk/en/Motoring/DriverLicensing/NeedANewOrUpdatedLicence/DG_4022089
      uk passport - http://www.direct.gov.uk/en/TravelAndTransport/Passports/Applyingforyourfirstadultpassport/DG_174100

    7. Mat B

      It's $350 or so to go through the full driver licensing system here Anthony, so I'd still call it cheap.

    8. AnthonyKinson

      oh thats just for the license card, we still have to pay to do the theory test as well, and then the practical test, as well as around £500 for a 1 week "crash course" driving lessons.

  13. AnthonyKinson

    Can't believe i've had my wallet stolen -_-

    1. Olivier Turbis

      Oh crap :s

    2. Ryan Ashbrook

      Been there, done that. Have a messed up wrist to prove it too. :P

    3. .Peter

      @Ryan ???
      @Anthony Sorry to hear that :(

    4. Ryan Ashbrook

      .Peter: I was robbed a year ago, they took my wallet. I punched a lot of stuff. :P

    5. AnthonyKinson

      it's a horible feeling. Had about £300 in there too, but all i care about is my cards and stuff. It had my driving license and everything in it. :(

    6. Olivier Turbis

      Ryan: Are you proud of the action you've taken?

    7. Ryan Ashbrook

      That's an odd question, Olivier. But no, I'm not. I'd rather the entire thing not happened but, alas, people do stupid things when they're angry.

    8. media

      @Olivier Turbis +1!

    9. Wolfie

      AK, dude, that totally sucks. Hope karma pays that person back for what they did.

    10. .Peter

      @Wolfie wouldn't that be something if it worked out that way.

    11. AnthonyKinson

      Only reason i had that much on me was because i was meant to be buying an iPad. It was in my front jeans pocket too and was quite snug, i should of deffo noticed if it had fallen out or tried to of been taken. :(

      Were you working on it?

    3. AnthonyKinson

      yup, there was no front end but most of the back end stuff was done.

    4. emm1

      Cool, I'd definately buy it.

    5. Ryan Ashbrook

      Why not just wait until it's back up?

    6. .Peter

      Because they say it's going down indefinitely

    7. Ryan Ashbrook

      *sigh* Read the FAQ from Playstation itself. They specifically said it's temporary. The media are only saying "indefinite" because it's a buzzword that generates readers.

      http://us.playstation.com/support/answer/index.htm?a_id=2356

    8. c0bra

      Carry on with it!

    9. .Peter

      14. What personally identifying information do you suspect has been compromised?
      Although we are still investigating the details of this incident, we believe that an unauthorized person has obtained the following information provided by PlayStation Network/Qriocity account holders: name, address (city, state, zip), country, email address, birth date, PlayStation Network/Qriocity password, login, and handle/PSN online ID. Other profile data may also have been obtained, including purchase ...

    10. AnthonyKinson

      ahhh i only read the story from the wall street journal blog. supose i'll just wait and see how it plays out.

    11. dogpatch

      tey are rebuilding the psn from scratch with better security (duh!). they said it will take another week or so before its back online.

    12. emm1

      Hehe Sony will definately be fixing PSN, it's probably going to take a few days but it's coming back. :)

  16. AnthonyKinson

    Anybody have any thoughts on mod_mono for apache? is it worth using when .NET support is needed??

    1. Wolfie

      The mod has mono? Dude, how'd that happen? :O

    2. Connor T

      I used it for awhile, as I was testing asp stuff, but then I had to switch to Windows as there are random bugs that aren't worth fixing.

    3. AnthonyKinson

      well basically i just want to run an API service on the server, but the service is written in asp. as this is the only thing needed i dont want to fork out for a windows server just to run the one API. also heard there was a few bugs and some limitations with mod_mono. chillisoft asp doesnt seem to exist anymore either :(

    4. Andy Rixon

      Why not just purchase a VPS, and then expand if needed onto a dedicated server if it calls for more power.

    5. AnthonyKinson

      The API is just for personal use so theres no use in wasting a whole server just to run it. :(

    6. Andy Rixon

      fair enough, but wouldn't the use of the API cause any lag on the "shared" server where your customers are.

    7. AnthonyKinson

      nah theres a cluster of servers, plus it would be installed on my own website.

    8. Andy Rixon

      Oh right.

  17. AnthonyKinson

    Bouncy PSN? Oh yeah!

    1. Mat B

      You know, I distinctly recall you scoffing at the mere suggestion last year.

    2. AnthonyKinson

      i did indeed, limited the amount of external work i've done since Christmas so had more time to explore, and it's looking pretty good :)

    3. ørret

  20. AnthonyKinson

    Honestly cannot believe how expensive things have become in the UK.

    1. JahLion

      Same in canada

    2. Herofiles ★

      lol, dont even mention Norway, we had some stats folks on tv; Norway are the most expensive country in the world! Its freaking sick!

    3. AnthonyKinson

      well the national minimum wage here in the UK is (or being raised to) £6.08 (over 20) £4.98 (18-20) £3.68 (16-17) per hour. The average price of a packet of ciggy's here is £7 / £8... so after tax and national insurance, people have to pretty much work for 2 hours to buy a packet of cig's, young smokers are pretty much screwed lol

  21. AnthonyKinson

    92% of statistics are made up on the spot.

    1. Herofiles ★

      everyone knew that :P

    2. AnthonyKinson

      24% of people were skeptical lol

    3. Ryan Ashbrook

      10% of people still don't get it.

    4. Herofiles ★

      1% have no idea what ya talking about xD

      That doesn't seem physically possible, unless you're living in a fridge or something.

    3. Jake Sully

    4. AnthonyKinson

      got the NZXT Phantom case. in total it has 2 x 120mm + 1 x 200mm fan on the side, 1 x 140mm fan on the from, 2 x 200mm fans on the top, and a 120mm fan on the back (7 case fans in total) rear fan and one 200mm top fan are exhausts. Then got the Arctic Cooler Freezer 13 CPU Heatsink, mounted with the fan blowing air upwards, through heatsink and out the 200mm exhaust fan lol it's icey cold, so much airflow!

    5. Ryan H.

      But it's still not possible for any conventional cooling system [even water cooling] to reach temperatures below ambient. O.o Unless you just have a really cold room.

    6. AnthonyKinson

      weird, my bio's reports the same temps too.. hmm...

    7. AnthonyKinson

      just checked with AMD Overdrive aswell, giving the same reading, although now it's settled at around 18c after being on for a couple of hours.

    8. Ryan H.

      18c is a little closer to what you might expect. How about CoreTemp?

    9. AnthonyKinson

      That was the core temp... at least thats what the screenshot shows. AMD Overdrive shows the same on each processor core.

    10. Ryan H.

      Oh, silly me. I have no idea what's going on, then.
