    If you had asked the question two months from now, I'd be the only one responding in the "60+" group.
  2. Mark H added a post in a topic: IPB 4.0 BETA DOWNLOAD   

    There is no publicly available "demo" for version 4.
    It's not released yet, but there is a Release Candidate available to Customers with active support.
    Your account shows as a visitor (non-customer), however. In order to download anything from the Marketplace, or to access the Release Candidate, you'd need to login with your customer account email and password.
    Thank you.

    [RC6] Manual task rebuild has fatal errors again.
    Manual rebuild of tasks, after successful upgrade, throws a fatal error again after running for a few minutes.
    That worked fine in previous RC's on this particular test install, but looks like the problem has returned.
    Pinning in case this is endemic.

    [UTF-8 Converter] says external archive DB is already at UTF-8, but it isn't.
    Have a separate archive database.
    The stand-alone converter "sees" it, but says it's already using UTF-8.
    However, the table is actually latin1_swedish_ci.
    (Possibly related to the other two reports I filed today about an external archive database?)

    [UTF-8 Converter] Browser method, Archive tab, error after first step
    In the stand-alone converter, browser method, if there's an external database defined in conf_global, a new tab "Archive" shows.
    Use that and it does start the conversion on the external DB, but after finishing the first step (which does convert the tables correctly), it throws an error about a duplicate table name when finishing, and appears to be looping back to itself. Manual check of the DB shows the table was converted, and the orig_table is there as well.
    If a table prefix is in the mix, there are more issues. Filed that as separate bug report.

    [UTF-8 Converter] Doesn't account for table prefix on archive DB
    Using the stand-along UTF-8 converter, browser method.
    It does not account for a table prefix correctly on an external archive database. If you do have a prefix, the script throws an error saying it can't find table xxxx, but the error text shows no prefix on the table.
    If I manually rename the table to have no prefix, then it throws error saying it's looking for a table with a prefix. Acts as though there's an extraneous or missing != or ! somewhere.

    Apologies for the confusion, I've replaced the patches, and they can now be downloaded.
  8. Mark H added a post in a topic: What video game system do you own?   

    ​I had a VIC-20, C-64, and Amiga 1000 (still have it).
    C-64 had 64K total memory, but only ~48K of that was available to programs. Graphics were incredible for the day.
    And to this day, no one has matched what SubLogic Flight Simulator achieved. A functional Flight Sim..... in 48K of memory.

    You must be a customer to download anything from our Marketplace. The account you're using is a Visitor though, not a customer account.
    Please login with the same email address and password you used to make purchase, and you should have access.

    [RC5] Blog - cannot add entry - maybe RC4 as well
    Upgraded RC4 to RC 5.
    Not sure if this was happening in RC4 as I had not made a Blog yet.
    Try to add an entry to a Blog and get EX1048
    Thu, 12 Mar 2015 19:45:05 +0000 (Severity: 0) - Command line
    Column 'entry_poll_state' cannot be null
    INSERT INTO `ibf_blog_entries` ( `entry_date`, `entry_last_update`, `entry_author_id`, `entry_author_name`, `entry_ip_address`, `entry_last_comment_mid`, `entry_blog_id`, `entry_hidden`, `entry_locked`, `entry_views`, `entry_pinned`, `entry_featured`, `entry_future_date`, `entry_name`, `entry_name_seo`, `entry_poll_state` ) VALUES ( ?, ?, ?, ?, ?, ?, ?, ?, ?, ?, ?, ?, ?, ?, ?, NULL )
    And going back to that Blog shows it has one entry, though it actually doesn't.
    Verified on two test installs.

    [RC4] Cannot add icon image to an existing forum Category, only at creation
    You can add an icon image to a forum Category, and it does show the option when you create a new Category.
    However, if you edit an existing Category, the option to add one is not there.
