    Yes it is.

     I have resumed development for the app. You can track the progress here: 
    The current "beta" is actually reasonably stable which is one of the reasons why the app hasn't been updated (school/work are demanding my time). 
    I am guessing the final version of the app should be done in like a week, then it is just getting some people to test it so I can ensure everything works properly.

    Looks great, but I read that "the application is limited in its ability to be translated". I run a brazilian board. Is it possible to translate Social Groups in AdminCP (or externally)?

    The front end of the application should be fully translatable. If you find any strings which cannot be translated then you can report them and I will make them translatable.

    It's auwful. It uses non SEO friendly http redirect and cookies to get into group forums, so that search engines have difficulties to index the topics.

    This is resolved in 2.0. It now checks permissions on the back end and bypasses IPB's cookie requirements for forum passwords.

    This feature is built into my Social Groups application. It can be found here:

    You could encode the file although that seems a bit over the top.

    Well then can't you generate a unique function each time a board is installed. Maybe a random string to map the characters in the alphabet to? This would definitely make ipb the most secure forum software password hashing wise.

    What I think the ideal solution would to be having a function that "translates" the salt into something else before the hash is created. By default just do a rot13 or something but allow admins to define their own unique function so the hash will be of a string that isn't stored in the database but it will still be easily generated.

    We installed this and it works great except when the group forums are created, nobody has permission to post in them. Is there a setting somewhere that we can fix this?

    Yes, you need to make sure that you configure the permission grid in ACP -> Social Groups -> Settings -> Forum Permissions. You should fill this out like you would any other public forum.

    In the future if you would post your support requests in the support topic ( you will get much more timely responses.
  10. rsyvarth added a post in a topic: bring the TAB back   

    I personally like tab to indent text... that is how it works generally. I get annoyed when it moved my cursor out of the input box unless I am filling out a form.
  11. rsyvarth added a post in a topic: Do developers get a free version of IPB?   

    No, at least I haven't ever heard of this happening.
  12. rsyvarth added a post in a topic: Group Enhancements Requests   

    My app Social Groups has some of these features.. may be worth looking into.
  13. rsyvarth added a post in a topic: Few suggestions   

    IPB posts security patches for all major security issues. Having a forum where all security issues are posted would be horrible since it would only take 1 user handing out that information for 1,000s of websites to be compromised.

    They are releasing new mobile applications along with 3.3. I am pretty sure one of the reasons they reworked the application was so they they could reintroduce white-labeled applications. I would think that information about this will be coming out in the near future.

  2. Dorian Gray » rsyvarth

    With your Social groups add-on do post made in the groups count towards the Members post count and overall forum post count?

  3. Eric Allione » rsyvarth

    That upgrade fixed all those errors I was having with the sound alerts... consider me a slave for life if you ever need anything. You can hold me to that.

    2. rsyvarth

      Send me a PM and we can discuss a refund since it wasn't clearly stated on the application description that it only is compatible with 3.1.4.

    3. Oyabun2012

      OR you could update it and give me a backup^^ Or ain't that so easy to update?

    4. rsyvarth

      I would have to completely rewrite it in order to make it work in 3.2. I only released the application because I already coded it for someone else, I don't really have any plans on upgrading it, sorry.

  5. rsyvarth

    Social Groups are slowly making their way to 3.2!!

    We're really having a great day thanks to your Social Groups, even though it's only a beta version. Keep up the good work!

    Just got an iPad 2, unfortunately iTunes' servers are down, so I can't activate it, so I am stuck with a "Connect to iTunes" screen. *FRUSTRATED*

    1. Brian Guerra

    2. rsyvarth

      Not much, basically a camera for face time.

    3. dogpatch

      ive got a galaxy tab. love it. ipad2 is cool, just a bit too big to be portable in my opinion. might get one for couch use though..

  13. rsyvarth
