  1. .Ian added a comment on a blog entry: IP.Board 3.3.x, 3.4.x Security Update   

    You might want to add this to the news forum?
  2. .Ian added a post in a topic: ProMenu Plus   

    Has there been an update to the latest release?
  3. .Ian added a post in a topic: ProMenu Plus   

    You would need to take it up with IPS, but I can only pass on my understanding of the law as you are not conducting business in the UK. If you spend over £100 abroad, then you are covered by the credit cards as you are in the UK. BTW - there is very limited recourse for software even in the UK, as there is nothing to stop anyone from downloading, cancelling and then continuing to use the software. 
    BTW - Promenu works just fine - I have been running almost since it came out and it is a great product. Give it another try :smile:
    http://www.which.co.uk/consumer-rights/problem/can-i-get-a-refund-on-a-digital-download - is the info you need.

    RMweb - as a fellow UK resident you are wrong. First of all you are purchasing via the USA and secondly you downloaded the software. Unless you can show a fault in the software which the authors refuse or unable to fix and it does not work with IPB, then yes you may be entitled to a refund.
    The 14 day consumer law does not apply here.
  5. .Ian added a post in a topic: Remove -rX from end of URL address   

    That is the record number and is therefore unique and required.
  6. .Ian added a post in a topic: Front Page   

    It sounds like the configuration file - however if you are unsure about FTP etc., I would simply update your ticket and support will sort you out :)
  7. .Ian added a post in a topic: Using IP Content without a page name?   

    Just as a pointer regarding this.
    make sure you type index.html and do not let your browser auto fill the name, otherwise the tick box will not show.
  8. .Ian added a post in a topic: Help with SEO page titles   

    On pages you could use Look & Feel - > Manage Meta tags 
    This will enable you to set both title and description for each page to your exact wishes.
  9. .Ian added a post in a topic: Adding a close or hide (x) to a message box   

    Thanks - but how? LOL
    I have no real idea on where to start.
  10. .Ian added a post in a topic: Change /page/ in URL   

    If you use mod-rewrite via .htaccess and have friendly URL's then you can have whatever folders and page names you like.
    For example I have a page at /leagues/england/cups/fa-trophy/2014/prelim.php where england, cups, fa-trophy & 2014 are all parent folders.
    The only limitation with IP.Content is that you really need a separator in database listings /_/ this can be changed to another character if required, but as far as I know is always required. Apart from that URL's are pretty customisable.
  11. .Ian added a post in a topic: Reactivate license   

    As long as it is released during the time that you have a activated licence, then yes you will be able to download and run IPS4.
    You will also have access to the beta versions.
  12. .Ian added a post in a topic: ProMenu Plus   

    The only irritation for me is the lack of a 'next' to go from the options to the permissions screen when setting up a menu.
    Apart from that, I honestly can't think of too much more.
    I am guessing we will have to purchase again for V4?
  13. .Ian added a post in a topic: Adding a close or hide (x) to a message box   

    Probably pretty simple, but not 100% sure. I guess I would need to set a cookie?
    I would like to add an x to a message box, so people can hide it.
    However I also would like to periodically change the content and so when I do, I would want the box to reappear. This will probably be weekly.
    Maybe I just change the cookie name?
    Thanks for any help.
  14. .Ian added a post in a topic: The New Account Security question   

    Would be nice if these changes could be rolled into Nexus / core including the possible over-ride of emails being sent, although one would think this might be in conflict with any privacy statement or agreement, so they might need updating.
    We would not really benefit, but I am sure some sites would.
    Also maybe it would be a good time to introduce a strength factor on passwords - currently IPB allows the most basic of passwords including ones for admins. Would be nice for admins to be able to say that passwords must be stronger, with perhaps a level for staff that was a level higher.
