  1. TestingSomething added a post in a topic: Some doubts   

    For that last question he may be wondering if he can upgrade without renewing the license. Basically you do have to renew the license in order to upgrade. You can wait however long you want to renew and your next renewal date would be in relation to the date you renewed on.
  2. TestingSomething added a record in IP.Board   

    Calendar Still
    This has happened forever. Click on a calendar recurring event for Christmas and it says December 25th. But on the board index it says December 24th in the tooltip. I thought someone said it was fixed long ago. Maybe it's because it was added before the fix. Or maybe the fix didn't fix it. Who knows.

  3. TestingSomething added a post in a topic: Starting a sports betting community   

    I made a sports betting system where you can bet points, make picks in contests, etc... I never quite decided on certain things and also could never 100% be clear on legality (even with it not using money) so haven't released it still. Of course a lot of things you want aren't in it or any other app I know of at this point. I'm always looking into making new things though.

    On the system I made I'm about to run a contest for the upcoming NCAA football bowl games. My site is sod ead I may have trouble finding people to even join it though. I really never get any feedback from anyone on how to make various things better. If someone wants to try it for the upcoming games they can join it. I've been using it myself for like 3 years, but it's still sloppy in some areas. I get too undecided on various features and I really ened to redo some things. And the contest for bowl picks is one area that needs to be redone even more than other areas.

    Updating status to: [b]Fixed[/b]
    Issue fixed in: [b]3.1.4[/b]

    The packages are rebuild.


    The "group by" query on the posts table used by this hook causes way too many headaches.

    I'll check with Matt if we can upload the hook here in the marketplace as a free download for who wants it.

    But something of that sort (a leaderboard type of feature) is commonplace throughout much software, so it seems odd that it would be a problem. Usually when I ask about such thigns as group by, acceptable number of queries, doing various things with queries vs. the php, etc... I'm told that you've got to be doing somethign really drastic for it to even be noticed.
  6. TestingSomething added a post in a topic: Quote Forcing   

    I think it would be good to have an option to froce post quoting to leave the quoted post in tact. That way people can't manipulate it to look like someone said something he didn't. Only for quote types which list a nameas being from. It's good to be able to manipulate it by emphacizing words, but I'm not so sure that convenience is worth the ease of manipulation left behind.


  7. TestingSomething added a comment: No Lang In Hooks   

    Well I reproduced it many times so not sure what's up. I've had a lot of weird hook issues on any hooks I've made really.
  8. TestingSomething added a comment: No Lang In Hooks   

    It does in that part, but not the <lang></lang> section below.
  9. TestingSomething added a post in a topic: My Posts   

    That doesn't show all content though as for some reason they limit it to 1 year of content. I assume to cut back on how much content is retrieved. But that's why to have a separate area for posts because there has to eb SOME way to egt everything and not just the past year.
  10. TestingSomething added a comment: modernProfile Data   

    Well all I know is on mine even totally reverted it's still that way.

    edit: it's definitely a bug. I don't know why you didn't find it but I just confirmed on a second installation it's the same way. In the members xml file it's properly setup, but something is happening or it wouldn't have happened on two installs, both even when reverted and i never changed those variables myself whatsoever.
  11. TestingSomething added a post in a topic: My Posts   

    I think there should be a quick link on every page (possibly even outside of the dropdown rather than in) which goes right to all of your content. On another site I'm always posting on you can easily get right to a listing of all of your past posts. With IPB first off you can't even get a listing of ALL posts as it cuts it off. Secondly, you can't click a link on any page and be right at all of your posts. Finding someone's past posts is so important that I think it should be separate from the other content and just be listing in a regular table filling the screen rather than in tabs. After posting on a site where it's easy to get one's past posts quickly (and thoroughly) it's more noticable how much better it is and that wth IPB it's not as accessible and obvious.
  12. TestingSomething added a post in a topic: Better Profile Integration   

    On every type of forum site I've gone to that didn't use Invision their software had good picture integration on their profile. To have to click a tab to see any pics isn't very good for sites which place more emphasis on meeting members and seeing pics and whatnot. On most other software types a few pics will be on the profile and then you can click to view all and the page it then takes you to is still part of the profile and has the same background.

    I suggest that IPS think of something that would beter integrate them with the profile. Maybe have pics from a profile album all be viewable right on the profile and a few shown by default. Or maybe have thecurrent member photo shown on the profile as it is now and have a link under it to "view more" or something.

    I'm considering making a new site and it won't be very ideal with pics not right there on the default profile and also as far as board goes there really needs to be age requirement control for joining, posting, etc.
  13. TestingSomething added a comment: modernProfile Data   

    In the ACP for profileModern if you click variables:
    [code]$tabs=array(), $member=array(), $comments='", $friends=array(), $visitors=array(), $default_tab='status', $default_tab_content='', $fields=null[/code]
    the $comments part. even when reverted it has that and it won't allow a save of the variables as it gives a "not an object" error. I had to change it to '' to even save it.
  14. TestingSomething added a comment: Upgrade failure   

    I haven't noticed it either and also one of my custom apps has no tables inserted. Unless I'm misunderstanding this.
