    Deleting group doesn't update members in the group
    If you delete a group any members who had that group assigned don't get moved / cleaned up properly. In this case it just shows the members group as per the screenshot below after the group was deleted.

  3. Alan added an answer to a question: Do you guys feel like a family?   

    ​Although we obviously have a management structure in place it really doesn't feel like that when working here, everyone is just "part of the team", there is no "us and them" situation when it comes to managers / non-managers. We all hang out in the same chat room, we all chat to each other constantly throughout the day, etc. I've worked in a lot of offices in my life and nothing compares to working at IPS, it really is the first place I've actually felt was more like a family than just a bunch of colleagues

    Problem with cyrillic names in URL when using ACP member search
    Ticket 907676
    In the Admin CP if you use the member list quick search box to search for a cyrillic name such as Жичкаджията the URL gets updated automatically but it doesn't seem to encode the name correctly, see screenshot below.  Searching still finds the members though so just looks like a cosmetic issue in the URL.

    Started re-watching Breaking Bad today but am only up to episode 2 so might take me a while to get to the Tuco episodes

    Support tool and white space
    Running through the support tool in the Admin CP and it complains about white space in the following files:
    C:\wamp\www\ipslatest4\applications\core\interface\ckeditor\ckeditor\samples\sample_posteddata.php C:\wamp\www\ipslatest4\system\3rd_party\pop3\pop3_test.php C:\wamp\www\ipslatest4\system\3rd_party\pop3\pop3_test.php5.php Clicking "The problem is not resolved" just takes you back to the white space warning and clicking "Continue Anyway" takes you back to the start of the support tool.

    ​I didn't know that was Tuco until Matt mentioned it this morning. I think I need to re-watch Breaking Bad to remind myself of what happened.
    Also, episode 2 just went up on Netflix UK

    Any of you guys watched this yet? If not, consider the rest of this topic to be massive spoilers and stop reading now  First episode was on Netflix this morning in the UK, not sure about the US / rest of the world.
    I loved it myself, first 5 minutes were a bit odd but glad I stuck with it as it gets much better. Should be fun to watch Saul evolve in to the scumbag lawyer we all knew and loved in Breaking Bad
  10. Alan added a post in a topic: Introduction Thread   

    As you may have guessed from my username, my name is Alan and I'm an alcoho... wait, wrong group.
    I started with forum software back in the day, the first forum I remember setting up was a phpBB site and that was in 2001 or 2002. Before then I was all about the BBS's, RA, Proboard and then QuickBBS being my software of choice. Over the years I've used all of the popular PHP-based forum software until I settled on IP.Board about 6 years ago. Liked it so much that I joined the IPS team in 2012 and I've been here ever since, quietly working away in the background
  11. Alan added a post in a topic: What video game system do you own?   

    I'm a PC Gamer through and through. I did buy a 360 a while back, basically just for GTA5 but haven't played it for ages.
  12. Alan added a post in a topic: What type of computer is your daily driver?   

    ​Do you use it as a laptop replacement and if so, how are you finding it? I've been thinking about getting a Surface for a while now as a replacement for my laptop, particularly with the keyboard-case. Haven't had much luck finding a local store that has one in stock and set-up with the keyboard to try it out though.
  13. Alan added a post in a topic: What phone do you use?   

    I'm using a Nexus 6 but I'm giving serious thought to changing for a smaller one. The Nexus 6 is so large that it's nearly impossible (at least for me and my tiny hands) to use it one-handed which comes up surprisingly often when walking the dog, carrying something, on the train, etc. Will wait for this years new phones to be released then decide what to do about it then.
  14. Alan added a post in a topic: Moba Games   

    Thanks for the offer Dylan, that sounds almost as bad as my WoW addiction. I dread to think how much of my life that game has sucked up
  15. Alan added a post in a topic: Favorite Movie(s)   

    Same here, pretty much all of my favorite movies revolve around superheros. Reservoir Dogs and the Usual Suspects are also near the top of my list.
