  1. Planetby added a post in a topic: IPS cloud hosting   

    I recently moved my forum from a vps over to IPS and I would highly recommend it
    IF you exceed usage you do not get "cut off" as with most host's, IPS will inform you and automatically move you up to the next hosting package to ensure you stay online. The difference in cost wise with the packages is not a lot so probably worth getting one slightly higher but support will keep you right on that.
    You will have full ftp access
    Support moved my site for me and were absolutely brilliant in doing so, cleaned up old un-needed files and tidied up a few problems for me.
    Personally I have no regrets and wish I had moved to IPS years ago, hope this helps

    Same here informed bfarber about it
  3. Planetby added a post in a topic: I own 3 (three) lifetime licences, Please explain?   

    Can only speak for myself but it sounds very fair to be offered $100 "cashback" instead of like with many companies it just becomes "end of life" and that's it.
    Personally I have a licenece which in honestly is now surplus since I recently made the move to IPS hosting, so why would I want or need to keep a seperate licence ?
    Good idea on IPS's part i'd say :)
  4. Planetby added a post in a topic: Customer support   

    Over the years of having IPB I have not had a lot of contact with the support team, more through luck really than of me having any skills lol
    Well the host my forum was on were gradually getting more expensive and the server seemed to constantly be running worse and worse, I had previously thought about moving over to IPS hosting a couple of times but since I had been with the present host a long time I kept putting it off.
    Well this week I took the plunge and was dealt with by Rhett Buck
    I cannot praise him enough and nothing seemed to be too much trouble for him, though some of my scottish slang terms did not translate well to the states lol
    Truthfuly though it was a shining example how all companies should deal with customers and has left me very excited for our small forum based around scottish fly fishing to be a part of the IPS hosted family.
    Many thanks to all the team,

    hmmm stumped then sorry, you might need to put in a ticket or contact the skin author
  6. Planetby added a post in a topic: Need help with skin error! Urgent!   

    ok, go into ftp to the skin folder and make certain the skin images have actually imported, if they are there change the skin folder permissions to 0777 and see if that works

    look above trev, just added it as you posted lol

    Looks like your in safe mode maybe
    System Settings   >   System   >   Server Environment  
    Use safe mode skins & languages, make sure it is set to no
  9. Planetby added a post in a topic: Ip4 Release date?   

    The release date is : 2014 other than that no-one knows and no specific date is EVER put on a release which involves a MASSIVE amount of work before hand, read the blogs and you will realise just how much work is going into it :)

  11. Planetby added a post in a topic: [IF] IPB Shoutbox   

    And very grateful we all are of the work you put in Pete :D
  12. Planetby added a post in a topic: [IF] IPB Shoutbox   

    IF you used some common sense you would create an admin account for someone who is going to help you out and once they have you can very easily disable or delete it !
    I have done so many times and others have done so for me to access their admin to help them out, there are many people here who can be trusted 1000% and PeteT is most certainly one of them!
  13. Planetby added a post in a topic: [IF] IPB Shoutbox   

    Could it possibly be a browser issue rather than your forum ? IF I remember correctly a long time back I had some members with a similar issue and it turned out to be "Chrome" not displaying it may not be this but it is worth checking into :)
  14. Planetby added a post in a topic: Easy Topic Moderation   

    Adriano, any chance of perhaps doing this for posts ? So we could copy individual posts rather than the entire topic would be extremely useful :)

    Marketplace went gaga, i've paid twice for the same thing and haven't recieved it yet lol

    1. ()Achilles()

      That's IPB. :D Haha, maybe the processors wasn't able to confirm the payment or they're evaluating it for fraud (?). :)

    2. TheRevTastic

      They manually verify your payment.

    3. Paranormalis

      Yea, and they are closed over the weekends and holidays. Except for some support.

    4. Stars25

      They manually verify the payments for license/addon purchases. I don't know if they do for the Marketplace since it is with Nexus.

    5. Mat B

      We do inform you. On the last page of the payment process, a message clearly states your order is on hold pending approval.
