    I would suggest submitting a ticket if you haven't already.

    Profile Sync conflicts
    If you have multiple social networks connected to your account, and you set multiple ones to sync the profile photo / cover photo, then a conflict can come into play where the wrong one is synchronized unintentionally. This is because the profilesync task does not look at what is currently set for pp_photo_type, and just iterates through all linked accounts (which it should, as it needs to also do status updates).
    Ideally, when setting a social network to synchronize these two items, then any others that are already set to true in core_members.profilesync should be set to false. Status Update syncs, however, should allow from all simultaneously.

    Archive - Last Post setting
    The Last Post setting allows you to set a negative value, which then throws a "DateInterval::__construct(): Unknown or bad format (P-13M)" error upon saving.

    Linked URL's no longer opening in new windows when configured
    I can reproduce here and locally - URL's to other sites are not opening in new tabs / windows when the setting is configured to do so. The anchor tags DO have rel="external nofollow" set.

  6. Ryan Ashbrook added a post in a topic: Where did Bugs go in NC?   

    It's a bug which has been fixed for the next version.
  7. Ryan Ashbrook added a post in a topic: Show yourself   

    ​Yes, the very one - it also had upgraded pickups (Active EMG 81-85) when I got it, which were already pre-installed.

    Advertisement "Show To"
    The description for this setting appears to be backwards from what it is actually doing. The setting indicates that the ad will show to people in these specific groups, however at the code level it is actually doing an exemption instead, and NOT showing the ads to the groups selected.

    Language Pack Locales
    If a pre-built language pack is installed, then it will still use the locale compiled with that pack even if it does not work properly on the server its installed on. So, for example, if the pack is compiled using de_DE, and is installed but the server needs the .utf8 prefix, any non-latin characters will not display correctly.
    Of course, if the locale can be set for the server, but doesn't display correctly, I don't think there is much we can do about that... but it should iterate over the .utf8, .UTF8, etc. versions first to see if any of those works rather than the one without a suffix.

  10. Ryan Ashbrook added a post in a topic: A few questions before purchasing IPB   

    1. Yes, this is typically what I recommend for clients converting. Setting up a test site with limited access (trusted members, staff members) will help you get a feel for the software as well as gather feedback on anything you or your userbase may want changed prior to launch.
    2. There should not be any conflict, no (users, for example, would just merge together based on email address).
    3. The converter application comes with a set of tools to redirect old topic, forum, and member URL's to their IP.Board equivalents.
    4. Unfortunately, no - as Joel mentioned, externally embedded images are not cached locally.
    5. In IP.Board 3.x, there is limited advertising functionality with expansion via the IP.Nexus application. In IPS Community Suite 4, that expanded functionality has been merged into the core.
    6. Yes, they can either sign in using their existing username and password, then associate their account with a Social Network, or alternatively sign in with that social network, and they will be prompted to associate it with an account.
    7. Yes, you can use IPS Connect for this - it's a point and click thing if you are just using two suite licenses, however if the site is not using the suite, you can use custom development to integrate with IPS Connect: http://community.invisionpower.com/4docs/advanced-usage/development/ips-connect-r99/

    \IPS\Content\Item::resyncCommentCounts() does not take Archive into account
    As the title says, \IPS\Content\Item::resyncCommentCounts() is not taking into account that topics may be archived in the Forums app. As a result, when recounting from an upgrade, those topics may end up with a comment count of 0.

  14. Ryan Ashbrook added a comment: 4.0.0 Editor Bug   

    This also affects Spoilers, so is likely a general issue with our block-level plugins.

    Weird quote issue with multiple lines
    I can reproduce this here and locally. Basically, if you type out text like so:
    Line 1
    Line 2
    Line 3
    And then highlight those lines, and click Quote in the editor, it flips them around. Video example: http://screencast.com/t/5aPyqa4DL
