I've been using IPB products since 2003 and I'm very satisfied with it (except for IPContent which is impossible to use for me without losing a lot of time, since you have to code everything, if you can code...).
My community is about education in primary schools and it is free. It is used by primary school teachers, students who want to become primary school teachers and parents, and it is a success, so far...
I wonder today how I can use IPB products to turn my community into an e-learning system, like Moodle for instance...
What do you think of this ? Is it possible, in your opinion ?
As for me, there was no performance problem in the past regarding validating members and showing all awaiting validation accounts...
Anyway, now, it's slower...
We also have this nice "effect" of a vanishing page when clicking on a button, etc. Is this effect a possible cause of performance problems ?
If this is the case, as for me, I don't need these effects in the ACP. I need a fast and easy to use ACP with plenty of functionnalities which make my work easier and faster (like it was before, speaking about the account validation system).
So, I need :
- ability to show only account awaiting email change validation (because now these accounts are a little lost in my 16 pages).
- ability to show only accounts awaiting admin validation or user validation,... and validate these accounts in one click.
well, efficient like it was before. :smile:
It's true that I check each account awaiting for email validation, but if there are certainly not many admins doing this, It was very easy and fast to do before. Now, I have between 50 and 150 account creations each day, and the new system makes things very difficult.
In my opinion there is a big problem with validating accounts in IPB 3.2.3.
=> It seems like there is a bug : if I validate accounts on the first page, then navigate to other pages and go back to the first page, accounts I've already validated still appear as not validated. Same thing when you delete accounts : I delete a few accounts on page 12, go to page 11, go back to page 12 and the deleted accounts still appear.
=> I don't notice accounts waiting for email change.
=> I'm losing a lot of time validating accounts wich can last 20 minutes instead of the 4/5 minutes before.
I've talked about it here : http://community.inv...__fromsearch__1
Is it possible to have the same functionnalities as before (with IPB 3.1.4), regarding accounts validation ?
- the possibility to only show accounts waiting for admin validation.
- showing more than 10 accounts on each page ?
so that we don't have to go through a dozen of pages to check the accounts according to their type (admin validation, user validation, email change).
I have an old server (I began renting it in 2006) working with a Gentoo streaming distribution and Flash Media Server 2. I never upgraded this server because if I did so it would have stopped working and I wouldn't have been able to fix the problems. In fact, it has a special/custom setup designed for streaming only (no mysql database, no http, only rtmp).
So I've decided to rent a new server, with a normal distribution (CEntos 5.5) and without any administration panel (like CPAnel/WHM, etc.) because it's not a very powerful server and I want it to stream videos only (no mails, no website, etc.).
Can you advise me about the steps for setting up the streaming server ?
Centos 5.5 is installed...
So I believe, I now only need to :
1- secure the server (installiing software like Shorewall, Fail2Ban, etc. , changing SSH port, etc.).
2- install and setup Red5.
I've never done this before. So, are these the correct steps ?
Do you know about tutorials which would help me doing this ?
Same opinion here : I have hundreds of new posts everyday on my board, so options such as "new items in the last 6 months" and even "last month" don't appear very useful. :)
What I would have liked is the possibility to exclude from the "View New Content" forums which I have no insterests in (I don't know if this can be easily done).
I'm really really really unhappy with the new "Find my content" in a member's profile : when you click on the button, it returns all the topics where the member has posted... This is nearly useless... Now I have to go through each topic to find his posts... This is an incredible loss of time.
In the past, "Find my content" used to return all the posts a member had posted, not the topics where he had posted.
Finding a member's posts can be important, for moderation for instance. Now, I need to find posts made by a member who often posts racial insults, and I can't.
Is this something which can be configured, and if not, is there a solution ?
I was going to post a topic about this. It's very difficult to find something in the blogs and you don't feel like reading the blogs when you see the blogs page which gives an impression of mess... Having the ability to create categories would put some order and understanding in all this... :)
I was thinking about something similar to the Galleries : blogs being ordered by topics. On my board, members need to gather and work together on a specific topic and so far, they prefer using facebook... :(
