Being a long time user of IPS software over the past couple of years I have become increasingly dissapointed with it and the service from some IPS staff. Not much point trying to give constructive feedback anymore or mentioning bugs and/or overlooked features as the topics are simply closed or removed when it all gets too much I guess for some of the IPS staff on board now days.
Imo IPS has gone too big and forgotten its original motto of loyal customers over numbers. Also where is the IP.Chat on the 4.0 preview site??
I Apologise for my frustration but it is just coming down the line as our community members are increasingly dissapointed with IPS software and IP.Chat in particular with its failure to support SSL, which is just absurd in this day and age but apparently cannot be fixed with any patch update and going on over a year later now we SSL folk are still waiting for a truely secure chat service.
Not soon enough IMO we need a patch now. This is ridiculous I watch dozens of potentially new chatters try to access the chat everyday without any luck, due to the latest browser upgrades and IP.Chats insecurity and the patience with some of our members is wearing thin which is perfectly understandable. There isn't even a release date for 4.0.
You provide patches for other security issues why is this one being ignored and put off till whenever... ?
This topic may well be less than a year old bfarber but there have been plenty of other topics regarding the same issue... We live in hope i guess that one day IP.Chat will actually be a useful decent chat rather than nothing much more than a shoutbox as it currently is...
I can read perfectly well ADK. Most of us asking here aren't using the free chat service and have been asking for more than a year. I'm sure anyone else suffering it will agree their chat room is being damaged because of it and the recent upgrades to browsers regarding insecure content.
If you don't care for your members privacy and aren't running your forums through SSL or using the chat room paid licenses you shouldn't even be a part of the topic, and I'm all ears for any alternative chat that's properly compatible with the current version of IPB I have been looking for the past several years and even tried several but all had compatibility issues.
Fact is IP.Chat hasn't had much done to it since it was first created a decade ago and needs some more love (it looks exactly the same as it did back then and has exactly the same settings available for it, it doesn't even have a liquid layout for the full screen option.) I don't care if it means the free license is scrapped altogether after all there isn't many of us I'm sure who hasn't passed that 5 person chat room limit a long time ago and have been paying ever since. I mean lets be realistic the 5 room chat limit is only there to entice people to set up the chat room and begin using it with the expectation that they will soon be paying for it as the limit of 5 is quickly reached. You currently can't even create more than one room in IP.Chat...
When is this happening??? Meanwhile any of us who care about our members privacy and use SSL continue to lose chat members... Surely you could fix this with a simple update. Its gone beyond unacceptable the time we've all had to wait for this to be rectified. :mad:
Currently you can restrict payment methods when adding or editing any products and/or subscriptions etc. However we have a lot more products than we do payment gateways and the current system seems a little backward as you have to go through every product in your shop when adding a payment gateway or wanting to restrict any to certain products.
It would be a lot more logical to have the payment methods on the payment gateway settings instead imo, allowing one to easily add or remove items to gateways without the need to go through and edit every item in their shop.
There appears to be an issue with your VNC page here as I have been searching by content I have not read but it's acting like new since my last visit with no listings after a d/c from my ISP even though I have marked none as read yet.
Excellent I and obviously plenty of others hope SSL is a part of the next chat update and look forward to it, in the meantime however I continue to look for a decent alternative that integrates with Invision and allows the chat to connect via SSL.
This issue has increased lately due to recent browser updates which now automatically block insecure page elements and as in the case of firefox don't make it obvious to the user leaving them to hunt out a shield in the address bar. >
Having read only the opening post of this topic unfortunately I couldn't agree more having been using invision forum software since before it had any apps and every modification was basically a manual hack.
Ah back with invision prided itself on loyal customers and its software instead of just numbers. In fact if I remember correctly that was the main mantra back then for invision, being more for loyalty than numbers (one the main reasons stuck with it when went completely commercial). Obviously this mantra has long been lost and numbers have become more important than quality software and the QOS to go with them, and as such so has my respect for invision been dramatically reduced and I'm sure plenty of others feel the same way I do who have been using invision for just as long.
Take a step back guys because the software and service was hundreds of times better when you took real pride in your software and it wasn't just all about the dollars...
