  1. Rick L added a post in a topic: 3.4.6 => 3.4.7 while all apps are 'deactivated' in IPS AC   

    Since my account shows all applications have been deactivated and cannot be downloaded, and the latest two security updates {appear} to be rolled into 3.4.7

    Will the applications be deactivated on the site side if I apply 3.4.7

    Sorry I do not have time to read through the plethora of threads, and I cannot ask this in support with no paid fee, or 'package'

    Getting more interesting. 
     
    I noticed I did not get notifications of you two replying to this topic, going into my profile, all notifications were turned off here at IPB
     
    I might have a much larger problem than first glance.

    hadn't thought about the logs being pruned, so it would be fruitless. I've dug through ssh logs as well access logs and find nothing that looks out of the ordinary.  
    Looks like I'll have to dig into the database between yesterday and this morning, between the backup and the current. Digging through firewall logs would be a daunting likely fruitless task. 
     
    Seems whatever occurred (from what I've seen thus far), does not appear to be malicious as in an attempt to destroy. 
     
    Strange, as I find no content missing, just password changed and all RSS feeds deleted. 
  4. Rick L added a post in a topic: View successful Admin logins   

    We have failed logins, and Admin activity. Is there any way to track successful admin logins. 
     
    I ask since recently the admin password needed to be changed, as it was not authenticating, and all news feeds from my other sites were deleted, though this does not show in the activity. 
     
    otherwise, how could this have happened, and why does this not show in the admin activity, if someone was able to crack the admin password ? 
     
    Putting the htpasswd back on APC btw
     
    Thanks
  5. Rick L added a post in a topic: Adding a 'Skin by' area in footer?   

    This option will work. However generally anymore this is done in the CSS file you are using. This option is likely the most simple solution for those not familiar. 
     
    ACP > Look and Feel > Manage Skin and Templates > (the skin you want to edit)  > click the drop-down menu to the right of said skin > ManageTemplates & CSS > on the left you will see 'Global Templates' a few lines down you'll notice 'global Template'  
     
    Now scroll about three quarters the way down and find --
    {$footer_items['copyright']} Then just above this line type / copy-paste in --
    <div style="text-align: right">Skin By - </div> And edit the 'Skin By -' area
     
    This is the most simple working solution, others will have many other options for you. 
     
  6. Rick L added a post in a topic: main index.html to index.php?   

    You could try making the page itself .php - which would require the php tags properly formatted. This means you'll need to know a little about the basic php page structure with html content. You cannot simply change the extension of the page. 
     

    <html> <head></head> <body> Your HTML content  <?php echo “Your php content - if any”; ?> </body> </html>  
    You might also want to use the following within your htaccess

    AddType application/x-httpd-php5 .php .html  
    Or you could use a rewrite to simply get rid of the 'index.html' (which imo for what your issues is , this might be the best solution) - placed in your htaccess file

    RewriteEngine On RewriteRule ^index.html$ / [R=301,L] RewriteRule ^(.*)/index.html$ /$1/ [R=301,L]  
    You might need to tweak this a bit depending on the location of your page(s)

    System > Community Enhancements > Viglink
     
    Is supposed to function with the API key, in my instance it's never worked this way. At the same time I have several things that don't seem to function as they should.

    Is it possible to setup nexus to check out using paypal standard, without forcing the user to fill in personal data?
     
    Thanks
  9. Rick L added a comment on a blog entry: 4.0 - Q&A Forums   

    This will likely bring in quite a few new IPB subscribers. Many people want to good QnA platform in itself. 
     
    Fantastic insight IPB team!
  10. Rick L added a post in a topic: When is IPB 4.0 ?   

    This!
     
    Has been the causation for a twitchy eye - and is by far strict to adsense. 
     
    Along with the rest of the post, looking forward to the great changes coming in 4.0 IP.Content and IP.Nexus - specifically in hopes of breaking away from the current requirements for domain sales and server settings. 
  11. Rick L added a post in a topic: [RESOLVED] VPS host question. Cannot open web page   

    Just repeating this.
     
    Would you be able to tell us the host ?
  12. Rick L added a post in a topic: When is IPB 4.0 ?   

    Assumption is rarely realistic. Of course this all depends on your business plan as well. Are we looking at our goals or someone els's ? Interesting question is it not ?
     
    Only in an afforadble product such as IPB do we see people pushing for someone to develop for them. If the costs were 10x what they are, or should be , just imagine what SMF or Vanilla would be today. Before letting emotions get in the way think about that for a moment.
     
    What I would like to see is a massive expansion to nexus, bringing IPB into the eCommerce field. As sales aside ad revinue is what fuels possible longevity of a site. That said I could care less what the 'skin' or backend looks like, I'll deal with this on my own. Sure my opinion there is one sided yet my point remains, take a proven product that they have worked diligently on, and jam something completely new over it , just to realize nothing they stood on others shoulders for ( mods - hooks ect.. ) work, and they must rework everything.

    I'll stick with what I have , work on that, when 4.0.1 is released I'll toss up a dev site and begin migrating my idea's into the new format. This way I'm not ignoring what's in front of me and chasing my tail.
  13. Rick L added a post in a topic: Oh Dam. Why are simple things missed?   

    Sorry Garrett but I believe you missed the main part of the post.
     
    Sure example demo articles should really be an option - none the less, I've run into this issue myself. Where you must delete 'content' (where at times you cannot call it content) one by one.
  14. Rick L added a post in a topic: When is IPB 4.0 ?   

    I've got it !
     
    Hey IPB -- just release it already - who cares if its finished, so the net can be cluttered with posts about how terrible a release was. Duh-me ?
