Ryan Ashbrook's Activity

  1. Ryan Ashbrook added a comment on a blog entry: IP.Board 3.3.x, 3.4.x Security Update   

    The announcement will remain until we manually remove it (which we typically do after about a week or two).
  2. Ryan Ashbrook added a comment on a blog entry: IP.Board 3.3.x, 3.4.x Security Update   

    The main entry has been updated for IP.Board 3.3.x installations. My apologies for the inconvenience.
    ​While I can't see or think of any particular reason as to why the patch will not work on 3.4.5, keep in mind that it is built against the latest version in the branch. Our general recommendation is that if you are running less than 3.4.7, then you should upgrade.
  3. Ryan Ashbrook added a post in a topic: Why aren t permissions for blogs/apps showing here?   

    There aren't really permissions for Blogs, exactly. The end user defines who can view and comment on their blog, and who can't (as was the case in 3.x), and if limited, is defined on a per user basis rather than per group.
  4. Ryan Ashbrook added a post in a topic: More info about Pages aka IP.Content 4.0?   

    All of the videos that were available on the preview site were posted via the IPSTutorials YouTube account, and they are all still there: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC80gCB6MKMZ2OqMNG3Fh6nA
  5. Ryan Ashbrook added a bug in IPS4 Bug Tracker   

    Blog RSS
    Seems to be backwards, aside from the first entry (which is still incorrect): http://community.invisionpower.com/blogs/blog/rss/1174-news-and-announcements/

  6. Ryan Ashbrook added a post in a topic: Where do you find the version number of your instal?   

    System > Applications > Click the magnifying glass icon for System.

  7. Ryan Ashbrook added a post in a topic: Announcement box on mobile   

    That's not the "default" position, so to speak. That is just where we have placed the block on this site, and when viewing via mobile, it just so happens that the sidebar gets moved underneath the main content (which, if I recall, was done based on feedback).
    On your own sites, you have the option to place the block directly above the main content, and it will display in the same location on mobile as well, in that particular instance.
  8. Ryan Ashbrook added a post in a topic: Page views for blog entries, ip.gallery images   

    Unless I'm missing something, they are still there.

    Images have view counts as well, but I can see they are not displayed anywhere. I've filed a bug report for that: http://community.invisionpower.com/4bugtrack/gallery-image-view-counts-r26/

    Gallery Image View Counts
    Are not displayed anywhere, it seems, though they are recorded.

  10. Ryan Ashbrook added a post in a topic: Client Link Gone?   

    There is always a link to the Client Area in the header of the main site.
  11. Ryan Ashbrook added a post in a topic: Keep database IDs with converter/import script   

    ​More people merge than you would think.
  12. Ryan Ashbrook added a post in a topic: Migrating from Wordpress and other platforms to 4.0?   

    We will review all currently available converters and determine which ones we need to keep. I'm fairly certain that WordPress to Pages will be one of them.
  13. Ryan Ashbrook added a post in a topic: Get user information ?   

    <?php // Initialize IPS4 Framework require_once( './init.php' ); // Indicate that we should consider this a front-end session so we can obtain the currently logged in users information. \IPS\Session\Front::i(); // Grab the currently Logged In user. $member = \IPS\Member::loggedIn(); // Output their username print $member->name;  
  14. Ryan Ashbrook added a post in a topic: Using the standalone utf8 converter script vs. the built in 4.0 upgrade   

    Yes. There are very few technical differences between the two, actually, and the underlying codebase for both is pretty much identical (save for a few concessions for the IPS4 upgrader).
  15. Ryan Ashbrook added a post in a topic: Keep database IDs with converter/import script   

    We did try this at one point, however it caused more issues than it solved. A lot of content can be converted over to IP.Board, so it is not always just a straight 1-1 import. Preserving ID's also removes the ability to merge multiple communities into one.
    That being said, it's something we can explore again for the 4.0 Converters, which can be built with this in mind from the start.

  6. Ryan Ashbrook » Creation Nation

    Wow. 8 Million posts. I just did a 5 million post forum the other day and it took 30 hours.
    Also, thanks. I've not yet gotten the 8-string monster, but I will someday. :)

  7. Creation Nation » Ryan Ashbrook

    (Oops. Just saw "Conversions specialist" in your About Me - maybe we'll tackle Ultimate Metal one day...scary thought (huge!) )

  8. Creation Nation » Ryan Ashbrook

    Hey dude! Just saw your recent pics in the gallery (8 string insanity!), thought I would say hello :)
    I run UltimateMetal.com - am buying IPB to start another community to see how it rolls. What do you do at IPB?

  13. Ryan Ashbrook

    No. I left IBB several months ago to join IPS.

  14. Joey_M » Ryan Ashbrook

    Ryan I didn't know you was also a member of the IPS Staff, are you still involved with iBB?

  15. AndyF » Ryan Ashbrook

    Happy Birthday ;)

  16. .Brian » Ryan Ashbrook

    Your picture scares me.

  17. Ryan Ashbrook

    Amazing how four hours of sleep can catch up to you so quickly.

    1. AndyF

      I know only too well ><

    2. Stars25

      It might be abnormal, but I run perfectly well on 4-5 hours of sleep. Whenever I sleep for longer than that I always am too tired.
