You can transfer all of the forums and member accounts from phpBB to IPB! There is a converter that walks you through everything step by step! I originally converted from phpBB myself and everything transfered over fine!!!
Im using IP Download 2.5.3! I have close to 400 files but they are stored in ftp with .ipb extensions! Is there a way to backup the files in their .zip and .rar formats as they were originally submitted with IP Downloads instead of having to download every single file through the public side on my site just to be able to retireve their original formats?
Latest version of IPB is 3.4.3 not 3.3.4, it just amazes me how people report the file as broken when they just need to upgrade to the latest IPB version!?! I purchased this mod last week and I think you are doing a great job, keeping up on updates recently!!!
To you guys trying to use recent mods on old versions of software, wake up to the real world!!! :)
I would suggest with the next version of this (4.0.9?), you need to replace the thumbshots third party option or add an alternate option to add your own custom thumb screenshot!!!!! This is a bad idea to rely on Thumbshots.com's 5,000 hits cap policy or you have to start paying an additional fee! I already pay enough for my own server host which doesnt limit screenshots by number of hits so I dont completely understand why this is the only option for thumbshots!?!
Cynapz, You won't go wrong with switching from phpbb3 to ipb!! I made the switch from phpbb3 myself and it was the best thing I could do for my forum website! There are many features that ipb has over phpbb3 so you won't be disappointed!! :)
These images are cool, thanks!! There is one issue though! These images do not display the correct size on the categories in the main page of the arcade! Does anyone know how to edit the category images so they are not fixed at a default size!?!
