  1. Rhett added a post in a topic: Skin import not working   

    Check your ticket.  It's a chrome bug, uncompress the gz file then import and it will work.
  2. Rhett added a post in a topic: Facebook Connect - Blank Page after Update 3.4.6 -> 3.4.7   

    I believe we resolved this in a ticket for you, in case others need this info, the new API for Facebook requires curl in php, if you are seeing this issue, enable/install curl and you should be all set.
    If not please file a support ticket and we can help you.

    No they won't, you can upgrade from 346 to 347 board and it won't effect any other apps.
  4. Rhett added a post in a topic: What's the recommended system requirements of 4.0?   

    Here are my recommendations
    mysql 5.5 or higher
    php 5.4 or higher
    apache or other web server
    xcache or others
    zend and ioncube are not needed for the board

    Just for info the answers are not case sensitive, that will save some work in the future.

    There is no way to see this I'm afraid, this could have also been a targeted attack, humans also register and then pass the login details off to bot engines to post etc.
    I would tighten up your question and answer maybe, make sure it's not a color or math question, and base it on the topic of your community.

    There is flood control if you have it set, but it sounds like the issue in your case is you don't have the ips Spam service setup properly to block accounts with high ratings (block on level 3 & 4) , nor the question and answer validation setup on registration?  If you have those items in place, spam is nor normally an issue.
    To clean this up, set your spam service settings to ban, and delete all content when flagged as a spammer, then mark the users as a spammer, it will delete the items, and ban the user etc.

    ​No this only applied to 4.0 I'm afraid. 3.4.6 does not support this. 
  9. Rhett added a post in a topic: Upgrade from 3.4.0   

    I would wait for the next beta or RC  release before upgrading there are still several bugs that have been found in this process with the current beta.
  10. Rhett added a post in a topic: Better SEO values in the IPB template   


    We do, we have, and we will always improve on SEO as things change.  
    What most don't understand is google and other search engines are an always changing item, their goal is to find what you are looking for , as site owners often hack their way around into fooling/tricking/seo'ing google and others to list their site higher without actual valid "high rated" content, google and others are always looking for methods to rank content properly, and see their way past the tricks people play, they will in time find a way to de-value the bad content and rank appropriately.
    If you want to rank high for something, you better have high value content on your site, that is the bottom line, if you do, you will never worry about SEO again.
     
     
     
  11. Rhett added a post in a topic: Why new v4 bug tracker? Do we have to repost?   

    House cleaning    All bugs in the old tracker will still be fixed normally and marked as such. New post go in the new section is all. 
  12. Rhett added a post in a topic: What should be the upgrade path from 2.1.7?   

    Upgrade to 3.4.7, then 4.0, the utf8 converter is built into 4.0. (No need to do that as an extra step. )
  13. Rhett added a post in a topic: Converters   

    You would need to convert to 3.4.7 then upgrade currently. 
  14. Rhett added a post in a topic: IPB 3.4.x - What data is kept when two members are merged   

    No you can't chose, the account you keep is the one with the join dates etc... (merge too) 
  15. Rhett added a post in a topic: Server Load Higher than Usual?   

    If you are on shared hosting, ignore your server load as it's not related to your site, but all of the hundreds of sites on the server.
