  1. Gearnik added a post in a topic: Do I really have to hardcode social links into the IPB template?   

    That hook doesn't work on later versions of IPB. I can't get it working on 3.4.6.

    Support have replied to my ticket with an answer! 
     
     
    But I have also been fiddling in Feedburner and it definitely looks like a better way to publish your feeds. I may replace the default RSS icon with a link to the modified feed.

    I guess that's true, but it still doesn't stop content pirates from populating a site with content I've developed and which is easily accessible from RSS, which is my main concern.

    Thanks, I will have to investigate feedburner and see what it can offer. I've seen that it is possible to stop the RSS feeds for articles, but that's not exactly what I want to do.

    Anybody know the answer to this?

    I was quite horrified to see that the entire content of articles and posts are being exported from the RSS exports on Invision. This means that people using sites like Feebly don't ever have to visit the site to get the full article, they can just get at it from the RSS reader. This means we get less visitors and obviously less chance of people clicking on our ads. 
     
    How can we set up RSS so that it only exports (say) the first few lines of the content and not the whole thing (especially articles).

    Yes, I have thought of that, but then you have to upload smaller versions for the preview images, which makes it a bit too clunky for commercial use. 
     
    What I'd like to see is simply a link on the display page in Gallery that adds it to a cart and then sends the purchaser to the full image download at checkout. I suppose this could be bridged between all three of the apps (Nexus, Downloads & Gallery) without all that much of a development overhead, surely?

    Thanks. It looks like a nice thing to have, but most of my site members use the hot linking method to show images on the forum, so this won't work for me. If you ever develop it to the point where it will pull either image method and create a thumbnail for use in a block I'd definitely be interested.

    Is anybody working on integrating Gallery with Nexus so that high res images could be added to a cart and sold as a download? 
     
    It would be a very welcome bit of functionality for IPS users to add to their communities or use to develop sites for photographers on the IPS platform.

    Does this hook only show thumbnails for attached images on topics or will it also generate thumbnails for images that are hotlinked in via bbcode? 
  11. Gearnik added a post in a topic: Merging IP.Suites across two domains   

    Thanks Andy. I am still unsure if I want to do this. Do Invision offer a service that can deal with the transition?
     
    Also, my other concern is the Gallery. What will happen to the images on the old gallery? Will they be linked to the correct members on the new site? I am assuming of course that you would have to manually move the folder in the backend to put it on the newer site.

    Anybody?
  13. Gearnik added a post in a topic: Merging IP.Suites across two domains   

    Thanks Andy. Will the convertor bring across all the gallery content and post attachments and how does it deal with IP.Nexus subscriptions? I have a fairly large subscriber base (over 2k paying members). Some of them have bought lifetime subscriptions, but there are still many on 6 or 12 month subscriptions that will obviously expire. 
     
    Are there any Invision users who have done this successfully and without too much stress? Especially the URL conversion thing? How will Invision differentiate between thread ID numbers from the bigger old site and matching ID's on the new site? 
  14. Gearnik added a post in a topic: Merging IP.Suites across two domains   

    I have two websites that both run on IP software. They are on the same version (I think) and I have the following common modules on each installation: 
     
    IP.Board
    IP.Content
    IP.Nexus
    IP.Gallery
     
    I also have IP.Downloads on the newer site, but not on the older one. 
     
    Here's my question and scenario: 
     
    If I wanted to merge these two sites, what would be the easiest way to do it? What would happen to all the URL's contained in threads on the older site once they are brought into the new site? Can they be updated to point to the new URL by running an update script or would that be a mission? 
     
    Second important thing is this, the new site has some members that are on the old site. If they are using the same member name will their profiles be merged or will they have two user ID's that I would have to manually merge in ACP? 
     
    Lastly, if I do decide to proceed with this mission, are there any services from Invision who could help oversee and take technical responsibility for the process? 
     
    TIA
  15. Gearnik added a post in a topic: How do I bulk move members in a secondary group out of that group?   

    I discovered that somehow close to 200 of my members with expired subscriptions are still enjoying full access to my site after their subscriptions had expired. I must have set up the product actions incorrectly. Doh. 
     
    Anyway, now that I have identified these errors in ACP by using the custom filter tool in the members module, I can't see a way of removing them from their secondary group (which is the one that is giving them the access). Using the "Move all members found" tool only moves their first group, which is already correctly set. 
     
    Is there another way of doing this? phpmyadmin command? (I am hopeless with mySQL commands, so any help would be appreciated).
