  1. Mike John added a bug in IPS4 Bug Tracker   

    Plugin widget won't display
    Although it will display in the block list, when I drag it to the widget areas the ajax loads and then displays the message "Error". The widget still doesn't display when reloading the page despite there being data in the core_widget_areas table.
    If I move the very same widget into an app it works fine without any problems. Only seems to be an issue when associated with a plugin.

  2. Mike John added a comment: Error: Unknown column 'session_has_archive'   

    Confirmed as well.
    I was testing the converter before so my "x_utf_convert_session" database table wasn't up to date (session_has_archive, session_processing_archive and session_is_ipb fields missing). I removed the old table, ran the converter again and it ran.

    The hook will continue to function without renewal. Renewing and keeping your subscription active, does give you free updates. e.g. When IPB4 is released or if a bug fixing update is released.
    For future reference, I don't check the reviews section of my mods. I would recommend posting support questions to the discussion topic here .

  12. Mike John added a record in IP.Board   

    Optimize task and db prefixes
    The code that checks if tables name matches your $charlesTables array doesn't take database prefixes into account.
     [code=auto:0] if ( ! empty($tbl['Name']) && in_array( $tbl['Name'], $tables ) && strtolower($tbl['Engine']) != 'innodb' ) [/code]
    My database tables have the prefix ibf_ in them, so there never being optimized.

    Timeslip System v2 Update
    The Timeslip System has just been updated to v2, this version is a complete rewrite of the entire Timeslip code with a few new major features introduced. The code and layout has been improved to IPB 3.4.x standards.


    Major Changes: Better garage integration now included, when adding a timeslip you just need to select the garage vehicle and that vehicle name will be used. Timeslip Events have been introduced. This will allow you to have members add timeslips to certain events if desired and for timeslips to be filtered by events if needed. Custom fields are now included with timeslips. These fields can be displayed optionally on the main page or just left to the timeslip page. Permissions and some settings are now per group user options. This includes new timeslip moderation and timeslips allowed per member.

    Additional Changes: Complete overhaul of the main page, my submissions and old control panel. This pages are now combined into 1 page with better filter options. New disable fields option to disable fields that your community may not use. Fields will be completely removed from view if disabled. Enhanced advanced statistics, with options for more fields. Automatic resize of timeslip or dyno images that exceed maximum height or width settings. Sidebar hook improvements that allow you to choose which field will be used for display and how they will be ordered. e.g. Display newest timeslips or fastest 1/4 mile et.

    Introducing Form Manager
    I am pleased to introduce my latest application, the Form Manager. The idea for a form manager first came about during the early days of development for Contact System. With each update to the Contact System came the ability to setup different alerts per subject and eventually the ability to add custom fields. The Form Manager is the next step in this development.

    What is the Form Manager?
    The Form Manager is a new application that has been completely rewritten but the idea and features are based on the Contact System. Instead of just the 1 contact form that was present with the Contact System, with the ability to add subjects and custom fields. The Form Manager allows you to setup multiple forms, with each form still allowing email, pm and topic alerts. And the ability to add custom fields to that form.

    Why make a Form Manager?
    Since starting the Contact System in 2005 more and more interest has occurred around using the Contact System for different type of forms. Subsequent updates have allowed the Contact System to be more then a simple feedback form. But to meet the demand of multiple forms, I decide the best way would be a complete re-write of everything was needed in a new application. And a converter tool that would convert the Contact System data to the Form Manager. This allows the transition from the Contact System to Form Manager to be done more slowly and not forced upon customers with an update.

    What about the Contact System?
    All Contact System customers will automatically be upgraded to the Form Manager for free. But to fulfill my obligations to those who purchased before today, the Contact System will still be offered as an extra download to the Form Manager. I will still offer support, issue bug fixes and updates for new versions of IPB. Updates will continue like normal.

    As it's been in development for the last several years, I am very much aware a lot of long term customers are still using it. For this reason I will not have a fixed date on when the Contact System will become EOL (End of life). Obviously I won't be supporting both indefinitely but the transition will be slow and allow time for everyone.

    What are the differences with the Contact System?
    You can view the products page of the Form Manager to view the differences between the latest version of the Contact System and Form Manager. There are a few minor changes due to technical and coding reasons. But subsequent updates to the Form Manager will close that gap. The Form Manager does however have several new features that are not present in the Contact System. There has also been a price increase for the Form Manager. This is in part due to the major increase in features and ability of the Form Manager and also reflects that the Contact System price hasn't changed for some years now.
