possible solution if you don't have the funds, try the community hosting they have a variety of packages and pay on a monthly basis. You can always than purchase the ip board at a later date and keep all your data.
I am a senior lady with little or no technical knowledge but I have to take the time to commend IP for the well put together upgrade. It took me some time to adjust to the admin panel and of course there was a learning curve in designing. I am no professional but everything I do is self taught. I didn't try my hand at upgrading but I own 2 boards and both were upgraded for me in 24 hours. Members on my recipe forum really like it and have given me positive feedback. I must say IP and everyone behind it, Charles, Matt and all staff a job well done, thought out for the little person like me with no technical knowledge whatsoever and the expertise. We all have something we don't like and nothing is perfect in this world but this is a far superior piece of software, well worth the price and I can say that from experience as I have used and designed for most every kind of forum software. kudos to all behind the scenes for a job well done and it was worth the wait.
I have a friend who is interested in perhaps using IP board for her family style forum. I see that 3.2 is now available in final. My question is if she purchases a community hosting package what version will she receive. I told her to wait till 3.2 goes final but want to be sure that is the version she will get.
I purchased IP Content for my Designing Forum but I am not using it on that board. I also have a just started community hosted forum and am wondering can I use that on the community hosted board instead of purchasing it again and if I can will support install it for me.
I read the post on the improvements going to be offered for the community hosting. I am interested in the new starter package you will be offering for $5 a month and am wondering when this will be available. I am thinking of opening a small new fun community as right now I only have a skin resource board and I have some friends who would like to have a more fun community board.
