    Is it possible to display the "note to moderator"??
     
    Many thanks

  2. Bill Edwards added a post in a topic: Limiting Photo Sizes - kb size   

    Thanks for the suggestion, but it doesn't appear to be what we are after, although it's difficult to tell from the documentation :(
     
    There is no description of what it does on the linked page (although there is a typo (always worrying!))
     
    The link to a site gives details, but they don't fit in with what it does on IPB
     
    It appears that it only removes a small percentage from photos - that is, we have 1/2mb photos that really should be 100kb. If I understand correctly this will make them smaller, but not significantly.
     
    Thanks anyway.
     
     
    I am after something like http://community.invisionpower.com/files/file/3546-redenzian-resize-uploaded-images-100/
     
    Where we set the kb size and the hook does it. Unfortunately that hook isn't compatible with our software version as it also edits pixel size - something IPB software eventually took on itself.

    Further to the above, we also get an error when deleting members:
     

     
    Disabling Duplicate Member Logger gets rid of the error message

    Suddenly this evening we got an error:-

    Gets rid of the error, but how do we fix??

  5. Bill Edwards added a post in a topic: Limiting Photo Sizes - kb size   

    Dear All
     
    Our forum is photo intensive. We have a size limit on photos of 800x600.
     
    However we are getting members uploading 800x600 photos which are over 1/2mb each in size. I want to limit the kb size as well as the pixel size.
     
    It seems the software will limit the total kb size per post, but not per photo.
     
    I've found a hook (only compatible with 3.1 & 3.2) that resizes pixel and kb, but the software now takes care of pixel size.
     
    Any suggestions?
     
    Many thanks

    Many thanks, I've taken
    <li class='group_title'> {$author['_group_formatted']} </li> Out of userinfopane
     
    and it's given me the desired result.
     
    Many thanks!!

    Using the default skin, but have a couple of hooks that may be putting the extra info in.
  9. Bill Edwards added a post in a topic: Member Group on Topic View   

    Dear All
     
    On the left hand side of a post is the members details:-
     
    Photo
    Member Group
    Group Icon
    Number of Posts
    Join Date
    Points
    Reputation etc etc
     
    I presume if I wanted to take out the text that specified the member group I would edit a template?
     
    Can anyone say which template and which bit? Or am I completely wrong ? :)
     
    Cheers

  10. Bill Edwards added a post in a topic: MySQL Search   

    Dear All
     
    I have a number of links within my forum that I need to alter after a move from my own server to cloud hosting.
     
    I want to write a MySQL script that will:-
     
    Search the ibf_posts for /forum/index and export a list of topic numbers that contain that text so I can open the list of topics in say, Excel
     
    I will then edit the topics from within the forum (I do not want to alter the raw database!)
     
    Can anyone help please?
     
    Cheers

    Andy's support is superb. Stick with it!!

    Many thanks - that would add the two together?
     
    I assumed it would be complicated :)
  14. Bill Edwards added a post in a topic: Reputation / Thanks & Script Writing   

    Dear All
     
    I would appreciate some advice.....
     
    We currently use the "Reputation" system on our forum. Some time ago we installed the "Thanks" system. We have now decided that the two are very similar and we want to remove the "Thanks system.
     
    However, we will have a revolt on our hands if we remove the "Thanks" without adjusting everyone's "Reputation"
     
    I could make a list of everyone's "Thanks" total, add it to the "Reputation" and MANUALLY update everyone's "Reputation" total in the ACP - but that would take some considerable time.
     
    I'm asking - in THEORY ONLY at the moment - would it be POSSIBLE to write a script that would do this automatically for me? I'm not asking for anyone to do it for nothing (unless you want to :) ). If what I am asking for is possible, then I will ask again and offer payment and see if it is something within my budget :)
     
    Thanks is stored in the table "ibf_profile_portal" in a field called "thanked"
     
    If a script isn't possible is it possible to save a list of all the thanks showing member name and thanks so I could open it in an Excel sheet??
     
    Many Thanks

  15. Bill Edwards added a post in a topic: Package Expiry   

    I've spoken to Technical Support and there is no way to set an expiry on a package unless you set a renewal. I have a need to set a one off subscription package not to be renewed, but cant!
     
    Please consider the ability to set the expiry of the package!!
     
    Many Thanks
