after merging what happens to links/urs imbedded in the body of a topic? are they redirected or will they all break? Since some links may be self referential to other topics on the domain of the site being retired.
I noticed that when an advertisement package is canceled either for non payment or from the end user issuing a cancel via PayPal's the ads are is deleted from the system - I would prefer to have the advertisement be moved to a "CANCELED" tab or added to the inactive ADS so that we have reference to the ads that were run with the impressions / clicks that were served.
Arbitrarily deleting the ads is not a good idea.
Also I had made a change to someones recurring billing from 125 per month down to 90 per month but I hadn't really checked in - Nexus reports the new rate however - PayPal still uses the original rates - so, my question is how do we modify a rate change after the subscription is started, with out having to involve the purchaser - (yes only for a "reduction" in rates)
I tried to even ADD credit to their account so that when the renewal takes place it should use the account credit first then apply the balance due thru paypal but it didn't.
How do some sites do it with live and integrated sites where you have the 'current' operating version and a link to view the new and improved site all the while be able to toggle between the old and new until the site owners mandates the "new way", the end user being able to actually start using the new version, instead of every user all at once.
I'd like to see at some point in the future a way to do this with IPS products by using the 'REAL' site with actual traffic and being able to see users interacting with new features.
In the past over the years i have always made a duplicate of my site and the database and then play around with all the new settings and features till I fully get to know the backend then
invite a few of my mods or members to kick the tires in a system that well - will all be deleted and have to be re-done again when the real upgrade happens.
you say there is a toggle for this setting however is this another bitwise setting on the forum like the best answer feature?
I hope there will be interface to choose multiple forums in mass to toggle this and to the best answer feature, instead of editing forums one at a time.
Fortunately I haven't seen how this would play out yet, but for a few of my advertisers that I have decide to comp them on their advertisement I just increased their account credit. So that when the adds renew it would use that credit to apply towards the ad.
However i happened to be checking something out and logged in as a member and saw that that person could request a payout based on the funds on credit. This kind of scared me as what would happen if they did request the payout - would it blindly just transfer funds form paypal/stripe to them with out my involvement?
What would be a better approach?
I liked the idea of them SEEING the 'value' being deducted - where as a coupon code is not easy to use after the ad is running.
If i were to send them a gift voucher would it too just increase their credit and allow them to do a payout as well?
if a version was removed ( corrupt / bad code / whatever ) its ghost should still remain (but not the file) and have a reason why (and when) it was removed - because if I got a notification that a news version was uploaded and i click the link in the email and find that the author made a quick turnaround to fix that prior one and pushed a new one. -
