    How can you tell whether a registration came in via Facebook or regular?

    Thanks for listening to all our complaining about the iOS app.  Making it available for free is a good start; however, the app needs a lot of work.  Have you considered acquiring a small company that is proficient in this area?

    Javascript error because of a hard coded path which uses /forums/
    While in the process of upgrading our forums to a new version we used the directory ~/forums_new/  IPB 3.3.4 for our new installation in order to keep our old forums working until ready to cutover.  We also installed the latest version of the app Fusion Menu.
     
    We found that after the upgrade none of the drop down boxes would operate - they could not be clicked, ie:  Your Profile drop down
     
    When viewing the Javascript Console we noted the following errors, specifically the "no method measure" was repeated each time we attempted to click a drop down
     
     
    Uncaught TypeError: Object [url="http://dev.ibsgroup.org/forums_new/index.php?app=members&module=messaging"]http://dev.ibsgroup.org/forums_new/index.php?app=members&module=messaging[/url] has no method 'on' [url="http://dev.ibsgroup.org/forums_new/public/min/index.php?ipbv=f23d25d1cb160af035ca39ca13630177&g=js"]index.php:96[/url]

          Uncaught TypeError: Object #<HTMLDivElement> has no method 'measure' [url="http://dev.ibsgroup.org/forums_new/public/min/index.php?ipbv=f23d25d1cb160af035ca39ca13630177&charset=iso-8859-1&f=public/js/ipb.js,cache/lang_cache/1/ipb.lang.js,public/js/ips.hovercard.js,public/js/ips.quickpm.js,public/js/ips.board.js"]index.php:554[/url]
     
    We resolved this peculiar problem by moving the IPB 3.3.4 installation to ~/forums/ and everything worked as it should.
     
    We gather there must be a hardcoded /forums/ path in a Javascript file somewhere.

    In a test environment, how can you test some of the features that require a Licence Key, if you are already using the License Key in your production environment?
  6. Jeffrey Roberts added a post in a topic: IP.Board & The Forum Will Be Dead Within 5 Years   

    There will undoubtably be exceptions in the prevailing winds.

    I wasn't referring to Google or Facebook apps. I meant Apps in general that you might find in the Apple or Google stores by a 3rd party. Something that you run on your smart phone or tablet.



  7. Jeffrey Roberts added a post in a topic: IP.Board & The Forum Will Be Dead Within 5 Years   

    I apologize, I haven't read all 6 pages of postings made here.

    I personally do agree that IP.Board will be dead within some period of time. I actually give it 2 years.

    For me, this isn't about Facebook, Twitter or Google+. Rather, it is about the App. The web as we know it is dying, a very very quick death. Google knows and and so does Facebook, ie: spending $1B on Instagram is proof that the $$ is in the App business.

    I have been running forums since 1996 and I have seen lots of ups and downs. This time is very different. Yes, I am getting very good traffic today. Yes, I am making very good revenue. But, that's going to change rather quickly.

    Unless IP.Board can become a *real* App where we can monetize our forums, we're doomed. Plain and simple. The end is near. Using a browser on a computer or tablet is no longer enough.

    I'm personally continuing to pay my IP.Board renewal license fees and trusting that the good folks at IPS are using the income they make from me to come up with a solution. Otherwise, In my humble opinion, theirs and our livelihoods are doomed.
  8. Jeffrey Roberts added a post in a topic: Lacking a mobile app under IP.Board 3.3.0   

    Thanks for the status on the iOS app. I'm encouraged though I believe in my humble opinion, iP.Board 3.3.0 would have had even more impact if you waited for the iOS app to be ready to ship with it.
  9. Jeffrey Roberts added a post in a topic: Lacking a mobile app under IP.Board 3.3.0   

    My 2 cents about mobile apps:

    I am really puzzled as to how a major release of IP.Board can be made available without an accompanying mobile app. I appreciate that there is something in the works in the mobile app department; however, in this day in age where we are losing so many of our visitors to apps, I truly hope that an iOS app is on its way.

    Also, a mobile app is not an extra, where the forum for it currently resides. It should be part of the core platform.
  10. Jeffrey Roberts added a post in a topic: ACP login under 3.1.2 will not take an email address   

    Oddly, once we upgraded our 3.1.1 dev forums to 3.1.2 we cannot seem to login to ACP with an email address. It only seems to take the username.

    Loginauth is set to IPB Internal with Username or Email Address.

    Is there some other setting we should be making?

    UPDATE: I see this was already in the bugtracker and will be fixed in 3.1.3, http://community.invisionpower.com/tracker/issue-24363-username-and-email-login-acp-only/
  11. Jeffrey Roberts added a post in a topic: Reputation System   

    Is there an explanation somewhere that can be given to Endusers as to what the Reputation System is and how do Endusers use it? I have reviewed the ACP Manage Member Reputation docs page; however, I am looking for something that explains more at an Enduser level.

    What do I add to my skin to add an additional ad spot on the page?
