  1. The Heff added a post in a topic: So IPB4 deletes users accounts without warning?   

    I tried this on 4.0.5.1 and it took me to a page where it insisted I enter a display name to "create your account".
    The account was not deleted but it refused to let me navigate away from that page until I had corrected it.
    Might she have run out of display name changes at the precise point I reached? I can see how a user might be locked out by then.

    The best thing to do would be to raise a support ticket and have them address your issues that way. They've said openly that most bugs are being fixed through support tickets. Take advantage!

    ​I think that's more than a little harsh. There's probably a lot of thought that goes into prioritisation of issues and perhaps yours just aren't the big hitters at the moment.
    In all my time here I have never seen IPS to care more about sales than about service. Yes, they're a business and they need to make money, but there's no way I'd classify them as you have.
    IPS: Please feel free to close this topic, I wanted to make suggestions about the bug tracker, not instigate bashing about bugs. I think it's run its course.

    For what it's worth, my original post was intended to request a way of knowing what has been fixed in a release. The current use of release notes is satisfying that need rather nicely, so thank you to @Lindy, @Charles, and the rest of the IPS team, for making that happen.

    You should probably check their profiles. These have been on the forum for a while.
    That latest one joined in December 2014.
    That means they registered either on 3.4.7 or during a very early beta of 4. (I can't remember when they upgraded here.)
    This means they're not necessarily getting past the spam controls now.

    Emoticons not parsed properly when typed

    The emote on the left was typed by hand using the code:
    :lol:Whereas the one on the right was selected from the emoticon window.
    The one on the left returns this:
    <img src="emoticons/default_laugh.png" alt=":lol:" title=":lol:">Whereas the one on the right returns this:
    <img title=":lol:" alt=":lol:" src="http://revolucion.co.uk/test_install/uploads/emoticons/default_laugh.png">IPS 4.0.5.1

    https://www.invisionpower.com/support/kb/_/34x-google-mobile-friendly-issues-r75
    Found it.
    It doesn't mention recaching your useragentgroups or useragents under cache management. I had to do that for it to work.
    Seems to have fixed it. Bug can be closed.
    Thanks @Stuart Silvester

    Where can I find that article? I'm going in circles at the moment as everything I can find is related to 4+.

    3.4.8 Users cannot sign in on iPhone devices
    I have two boards that have both been upgraded to 3.4.8. Users on both boards are reporting issues signing in from iPhones.
    I've tested both boards and can reproduce on both. The sign in link works and the user enters their details, but submitting does not sign the user in.
    Tested on an iPhone 4 and two iPhone 6s.
    Tested on the default skin, which is unmodified, to confirm it's not a theme issue.
    I also disabled the Tapatalk hook just in case it was causing an issue, but this had no effect.

    3.4.8 to 4.0.5.1, Call to undefined method IPSUtf8
    PHP Fatal error: Call to undefined method IPSUtf8\\Db::get_charset() in /var/www/vhosts/xxxxxxxxxx.co.uk/httpdocs/xxxxxxxxx/admin/convertutf8/system/Output/Browser/Template.php on line 181
    This occurs when attempting to upgrade a 3.4.8 board to 4.0.5.1. The error occurs when attempting to perform the database conversion to UTF8. The converter fails to load. I've got around it by converting using the standalone converter instead, but only on a test board which means I can delete it and start again to reproduce.

    Thanks @Mark
    I do appreciate the complexity and the challenge, and it's good to know it's being thought about.
  13. The Heff added a post in a topic: Bug Tracker   

    ​Thanks Mark, but this is a problem in general. I wouldn't expect to be able to ask IPS to confirm each time I want to know if a bug is fixed in an upcoming release, but I would like to be able to find out for myself.
    Even a change log that's updated with the relevant bugs resolved would be better than no idea at all.

    Hello,
    Disclaimer: I am a huge advocate of IPS, therefore this is not a gripe just for the sake of it.
    Request: Please, for the love of all things buggy, bring back the 'fixed in' field on the bug tracker. We're now up to 4.0.4 with 4.0.5 imminent and we have absolutely no clarity in which release a fixed bug is actually fixed. If we're holding back an upgrade because of a particular bug, which in my case is themes related, or are otherwise waiting for a bug fix that's affecting a live site, we have no idea which upcoming release contains the fix we're waiting for.
    Thank you.

    I'd be interested in this @Stoff. Any chance of a marketplace mod? (Happy to pay for it as well.)
