    Hello Everyone,
    CodingJungle here (posting from roberts account due the fact permissions seem to have been screwed up on the upgrade and non-active licenses holders can not post here, but has 3 active licenses!), so any way. I want to let you guys know i've begun work on a new menu for IPS 4.0, I said in previous post we would begin work when IPS 4.0 entered into beta, and so we have.
    If you are interested in being a beta tester, let robert or myself know here or in PM and we will get you account setup on our site with the beta group. Right now its not much to look at, as been messing with the back end, got some of it done already. You can create groups and menu items...thats about it.
    This new menu is not called ProMenu as the Pro part was in reference to Provisionists and since we moved to for the development aspect, it no longer fits. The working name right now is iMenu (corny i know), will probably change it to CJ Menu or something along those lines before the alpha.
    We will be dropping the various block types we have now, and going with one called "magic block". It didn't make much sense to have them seperated, when IPS has a internal Template Engine that can handle PHP and the various template plugins (like content blocks), and with IPS 4.0 having the ability to autoload with namespacing, php blocks seem redundant as you can just use a FQN to point to a class and build your PHP in a class file.
    I know some of you have been wondering how we will be handling the 3.x purchases of Promenu Plus and Basic to the new menu for IPS 4.0. Robert and I still haven't decided. It is sorta a tough decision to make. As this is a completely new code, a new product and a new company, we will continue to figure out the best way to handle ProMenu to the new menu.
    Thanks Everyone,

With the ability to export custom groups as hooks and use raw html, php, and/or to parse content/easypages blocks (if installed), the possibilities of what can be done with this application are limited only by ones imagination...proud to present you with Promenu Plus series.

    If you had taken 2 minutes to look around the site, you would have located the instructions with ease. These instructions are available for guest so there is no excuse for your failure to locate them. So considing the fact the we provided proper support to you in a timely manner (well within normal support paramaters on a thread that is not even the proper location for support of said product) and the instructions are clearly present on our site, I am washing my hands of this issue. I am reporting this issue to the IPS staff and they can deal with it accordingly.

    Thank you .Ian for the Kudos. We do our best to provide quality products and services.

    I have no control over the marketplace and how they handle refunds, but considering you just made the purchase today and proper support was provided within hours of you making the purchase/post for assistance, if asked I would decline your request.

    steve00 is correct. Promenu installs like IPS applications. Appologies on the link. We are reconstructing our tutorials and we changed the location for the promenu installation link. I have setup a 301 to redirect everyone too the link steve00 posted.

    We wont be upgrading to 4.0 right away, we have already decided that 4.1 will be our next major update to IPS, and we figure that might be a year or two away (maybe longer), so a 3.4.x skin is needed :)
    thanks for your concern however.

    there is a bug report already on this, it will be fixed in the next version. topics make poor bug trackers it is why we implemented one and moved  over support to our site. It is why there are times "support" questions aren't always answered here.

    You don't upload the actual folder. This folder is provided so you can have the unmodified images used in the master theme. If you just wish to use what is already available, just make a copy of the promenu folder in the public/style_images/master folder and add it to the themes you already have installed.

    It will (or should) update your current menus. Of course always do a backup before upgrading any application.
  11. Robert Simons added a post in a topic: ProMenu Plus   

    Well you did say ..

    To me "board" implies forums, but ProMenu can also do IP.Content databases in this same fashion if desired.

  12. Robert Simons added a post in a topic: ProMenu Plus   

    Use the " Attach Forums? " option at the bottom of the menu item. This option will appear when choosing forums for the application to link the menu item too.

    We had a client who managed to actually reach the IPS cache limit. This setting was added to resolve the issue of reaching this limit from adding menu data to the cache. Mike also reduced the amount of data being added to the cache by one third, to help reduce the risk of reaching the cache limit.
  14. Robert Simons added a post in a topic: ProMenu Plus   

    If set to yes, you will be using the file for storage versus the cache.
  15. Robert Simons added a post in a topic: ProMenu Plus   

    It allows the end user to use a flat file instead of using the IPS cache for the menu data.
