    Create Menu for Topic should check for single post-able forum
    I plan to have only 1 forum on my site (for support). When I select Topic in the Create Top Menu, it pops up a forum selection form where I am forced to select the only post-able forum in the list. The forum should be auto-selected and the user should not ever see the forum select list popup. Choosing Create -> Topic should go directly to the Create New Topic page for the single forum available for posting.

    Unexpected ACP sign outs
    I installed a fresh copy of beta4b. I have been using the ACP , but there have been a few operations that have caused the ACP sign in page to appear unexpectedly.
    One place this has happened if when using the Search ACP box. As I type a few characters, the search results are briefly updated and then the ACP sign in page appears and I have to re-sign into the ACP . It also has happened when I saved a new File Storage Method of Database. The Method was created, but saving it caused the ACP sign in page to appear.

    Underflow Exception in ACP edit member
    I installed a fresh copy of beta4b. I changed the storage method for all files to "Database" instead of the default File System. When I try to edit the admin member (my only member), I get an exception. This might be caused by the move of the files to the database as there has been very little activity on my test site, but this shouldn't cause an unhandled exception regardless.

    Padding issue with Pinned Icon
    Seems to me that a bit of padding-left is needed for the Pinned Icon:

    Upgrade from Beta3 to Beta3a failed
    I upgraded my Beta3 test install to Beta3a, but after the upgrade, the CSS and JS files are now empty. Even though the pages are unstyled, I was able to log into the ACP and go to the Support section and Start a rebuild of the theme (at least I think this is what this section does). But the action resulted in an EX4096 fatal error:
    A configuration or server error has occurred EX4096 exception 'ErrorException' with message 'Method IPS\Helpers\MultipleRedirect::__toString() must return a string value' in /data/www/walri.com/root/us/system/Theme/Theme.php(558) : eval()'d code:2484 Stack trace: #0 /data/www/walri.com/root/us/system/Theme/Theme.php(558) : eval()'d code(2484): IPS\IPS::errorHandler(4096, 'Method IPS\\Help...', '/data/www/walri...', 2484, Array) #1 [internal function]: IPS\Theme\class_core_global_global->wizard(Array, 'self_service', Object(IPS\Helpers\MultipleRedirect), Object(IPS\Http\Url), true) #2 /data/www/walri.com/root/us/system/Helpers/Wizard/Wizard.php(177): call_user_func(Array, Array, 'self_service', Object(IPS\Helpers\MultipleRedirect), Object(IPS\Http\Url), true) #3 /data/www/walri.com/root/us/system/Theme/Theme.php(558) : eval()'d code(1386): IPS\Helpers\_Wizard->__toString() #4 /data/www/walri.com/root/us/system/Dispatcher/Dispatcher.php(144): IPS\Theme\class_core_admin_global->globalTemplate('eefcfb3987d88a1...', Object(IPS\Helpers\Wizard), Array) #5 /data/www/walri.com/root/us/system/Dispatcher/Standard.php(95): IPS\_Dispatcher->finish() #6 /data/www/walri.com/root/us/system/Dispatcher/Dispatcher.php(126): IPS\Dispatcher\_Standard->finish() #7 /data/www/walri.com/root/us/admin/index.php(13): IPS\_Dispatcher->run() #8 {main} I removed the @ in Theme.php line 558 and see that I'm getting the following fatal error:
    Fatal error: Cannot redeclare class IPS\Theme\class_core_admin_global in /data/www/walri.com/root/us/system/Theme/Theme.php(558) : eval()'d code on line 3 So, I commented out the @eval and enabled the debug file_put_contents above and got the following error:
    A configuration or server error has occurred EX4096 exception 'ErrorException' with message 'Method IPS\Helpers\MultipleRedirect::__toString() must return a string value' in /data/www/walri.com/root/us/uploads/1870456874.php:2485 Stack trace: #0 /data/www/walri.com/root/us/uploads/1870456874.php(2485): IPS\IPS::errorHandler(4096, 'Method IPS\\Help...', '/data/www/walri...', 2485, Array) #1 [internal function]: IPS\Theme\class_core_global_global->wizard(Array, 'self_service', Object(IPS\Helpers\MultipleRedirect), Object(IPS\Http\Url), true) #2 /data/www/walri.com/root/us/system/Helpers/Wizard/Wizard.php(177): call_user_func(Array, Array, 'self_service', Object(IPS\Helpers\MultipleRedirect), Object(IPS\Http\Url), true) #3 /data/www/walri.com/root/us/uploads/133627459.php(1387): IPS\Helpers\_Wizard->__toString() #4 /data/www/walri.com/root/us/system/Dispatcher/Dispatcher.php(144): IPS\Theme\class_core_admin_global->globalTemplate('331352ced81b902...', Object(IPS\Helpers\Wizard), Array) #5 /data/www/walri.com/root/us/system/Dispatcher/Standard.php(95): IPS\_Dispatcher->finish() #6 /data/www/walri.com/root/us/system/Dispatcher/Dispatcher.php(126): IPS\Dispatcher\_Standard->finish() #7 /data/www/walri.com/root/us/admin/index.php(13): IPS\_Dispatcher->run() #8 {main} I kept trying to work around the error, but in no case, was anything in the uploads/css_built_1 rebuilt so I don't think I understand yet how all this is supposed to work.
    Since I am going in circles trying to rebuild the Theme, I've stopped trying. I didn't do a backup of my test db so I guess I'm out of luck trying to get my test install back (which had a number of customizations done to it to represent the site I'm hoping to build with IPS4) and will probably start over this afternoon, unless you can suggest a work around I can try to get the Theme rebuilt.

  8. KT Walrus added a post in a topic: Would be nice for us skinners   

    You should report any misused CSS styles as a bug, I would think... The default theme should use consistent styles to make sure the suite looks the same throughout...
     
  9. KT Walrus added a post in a topic: Bug Tracker page would look better if statuses were color coded tags   

    The current Bug Tracker page looks awful with the blotchy grey Statuses:

    I suggest you change the Statuses into Tags that are Color Coded. The Tags would be "Cannot Reproduce", "Awaiting Feedback", "Unconfirmed", "Confirmed - Matt", etc and would be pre-defined. The "Unconfirmed" tag could be shown in Grey. The "Fixed" tag could be shown in Green. The "Confirmed" tags could be shown in Red and other tags having appropriate colors to make them stand out or fade into the background. It also might work better to have the tag shown as a prefix to the "By" line instead of a suffix to this line. That way, the status of the report will be shown as a column just under the Report Title.
    No need for the text "Status:" to be repeated in each tag too.
    Just a suggestion...
  10. KT Walrus added a post in a topic: I own 3 (three) lifetime licences, Please explain?   

    I did submit a Support Ticket to get access to the Pre-Release download for working with the IN_DEV mode this weekend, but no response from IPS and I fear that I won't get access to the download tonight since it is 6:30pm ET on a Friday here and I bet all customer service people have taken off for the weekend. My current 1.0.12 install had some reported issues with IN_DEV and Designer's Mode which I believe might now be fixed in 1.0.16.
     
    I think IPS could have handled this better. My suggestion is to automatically add a free 6 month IPS4 Suite license to all "legacy" license holders. This would have smoothly transitioned us to IPS4 and then IPS could offer to "convert" existing Lifetime/Perpetual licenses to IPS4 licenses for a further $75 account credit (or whatever $100 minus 6 month IPS4 license is). That way, we wouldn't be inconvenienced by the new license policy and would have the time to decide whether we want to keep an IPS4 license active.
  11. KT Walrus added a post in a topic: I own 3 (three) lifetime licences, Please explain?   

    How do I "convert" my Lifetime license to IPS4? I can't download the latest Pre-Release anymore since you require "active" licenses to do so.
     
    Also, what happens to my Copyright Removals that is on my Lifetime license? Does this "convert"?
     
    I also have inactive IP.Blog, IP.Gallery, IP.Nexus, and IP.Content licenses that are "attached" to my Lifetime license. Do these inactive licenses "convert" also so I only have to pay a small fee to activate these for IPS4?
     
    I also have 2 Permanent inactive licenses that don't have Copyright Removals attached. I have never successfully established a community based on the IPB licenses I hold (I tried several times, but all were failures). I want to give IPS4 a try basically because I can implement my own custom app rather easily to build the type of community that I think will be successful.
     
    If you don't mind, could you briefly describe the fees (both initially and ongoing) that I am going to incur to deploy a community based on IPS4 under the new license structure assuming I get credits applied for my old Lifetime license (and 2 Perpetual licenses and the inactive other licenses I hold) and I will be using Copyright Removal, IPS4 Forums, Blog, Gallery, Nexus, and Content on my new site.
  12. KT Walrus added a post in a topic: Ipb 4 Preview acceptance   

    Its an "early preview" site now and they only approved the first 906 people that registered.  You would have been approved if you registered earlier.  When they open it up to many more people, they will put out a public notification so more people know about the site and can contribute to making IPS4 the best release ever.  Previously, you only really found out about the site by reading Charles' signature or seeing someone else discuss the site here.
  13. KT Walrus added a post in a topic: Add a Contests section here (like Custom Projects)   

    As I've been playing on the IPS4 preview site now for a few days, it appears to me that not all the features I had hoped would be implemented made it into the suite.  I would like to encourage third party developers to implement my desired features, but I really don't have the budget to post a Custom Project and pay for the whole implementation.
     
    So, I was thinking that if IPS had a Contests section here, that I could run a Contest and get some developers to compete for implementing the hook/module/app for a lower price than doing a Custom Project.  The rules of the Contest could be that all Contests have at least 1 prize ($100 minimum) and that all hooks/modules/apps submitted be able to be sold by the developers in the marketplace.   And, that the Contest holder get a royalty-free copyright-free perpetual license for the Contest winning mod to use on their site.
     
    For example, if I would like a Reviews forum type (that works a bit like the Questions forum type in IPS4, only for Reviews with Ratings), I would post a $250 Contest and describe the feature I want implemented.  Various developers who think it is worth an afternoon or so to implement their take on the feature and submit their completed work to the Contest.  Only the Contest holder would be able to download and test these developer submissions.  The Contest would be kept open for maybe up to 30 days at which time, if the Contest holder hasn't picked a winner, IPS would.  To make sure that winners get their winnings, IPS could require the Contest holder to pay the winning prize money to IPS before opening the contest and IPS would handle paying the winner when one is picked.  The prize money would be refundable to the Contest holder only if the Contest holder or IPS don't think any developer has submitted a solution that is acceptable.
     
    I'm willing to bet that there are lots of us IPS4 customers out here that would love to sponsor various Contests for their favorite missing features of IPS4.  Developers will be incentivized to work on lots of different add on products by entering the Contests that feature a high enough prize for them to spend the effort to win the Contest even though the likelihood is that they might not win the prize.  And, all Developers, regardless of whether they won the prize, can try to sell their submission in the MarketPlace.  This might really jump start the MarketPlace with higher quality third party add ons than the current MarketPlace.
  14. KT Walrus added a post in a topic: IPB 4 will support MySQL master/slave replication?   

    I'm hoping that the new IPB 4 will not only support Master/Slave setups out of the box, but that the software is transaction oriented.  For example, when creating a new topic, all the inserts and updates should be in a single MySQL transaction that is applied to the Master and replicated to the Slaves as a single transaction.  SELECT FOR UPDATEs that are input to a subsequent UPDATE should be applied to the Master connection and other normal SELECTs should be redirected to a Slave connection. And It would be nice if the software handled COMMIT failures to a Galera Cluster so that temporary locking issues on one of the nodes is handled properly.
     
    Anyway, I'm hoping that IPS took advantage of the code rewrite to implement enterprise quality SQL view of the database.
