    I do not seem to be able to find the enom class in the documentation whereas the cpanel class is there:
    http://community.invisionpower.com/resources/doxygen/classserver__cpanel.html
    Could you link it to me please
  2. Rugger added a post in a topic: enom integration   

    I know I am an existing client, but as this is leading on to another license purchase and I want a good reply I am posting here.
    This query concerns enom integration (as the name suggests), I have a reseller account with them and am wanting to get a store up and running. I was going to set this up with a different website package but then I thought, well I like IPS and I like the software so I will try and stay with it. 
    So. I currently understand that there is existing enom integration but only linked with hosting packages.. I have yet been unable to test this properly though - is there a page detailing the limitations of this? After purchase are there domain management facilities such as contact information and DNS management built in? Are domains purchased through this setup for subscriptions and renewals?
    Now I would like to use the above as I have spare dedicated server space that I would like to use for hosting. However I would also like to supply the ability to purchase a domain as a singular product. The first thing I thought would be to have a single domain product and then have the option to enter the domain name and the TLD. The problems I have come across are that I cannot figure out how to have a 'custom package field' change the price of the product, so different domains have different costs. The second problem is validating the domain is available for purchase, I see how I can do the renewals using  http://www.invisionpower.com/support/guides/_/advanced-and-developers/ipnexus/ipnexus-custom-actions-r55  As an additional question, would I need to have my own task to warn clients of an upcoming renewal needed or does IP.Nexus do this?
    So, I think I am ok setting up a 'domain' package if I have those questions answered. Although, would it be possible that rather than I create this that I could "hook" into the domain package that is used in the default facility when purchasing a domain with a hosting package?.. As I imagine that If I do that I would also not have to worry about doing the renewals myself (depending if the default does that) 
    Apart from that, are their any other hurdles I may encounter when selling domains through IP.Nexus? 
    Are their any API expansions of the enom integration from IP.Nexus 3.4 to 4?
    Thanks

    If you want the same content on multiple forums can't you just have an RSS Import? Isn't that what it's for?

    This already exists. It's the same thing as the Test forum on this website. Use the 'Allow posters to view other member's topics' setting.

    There is an applications system on the marketplace that would probably suit you - has all the features you are asking for with the ability to customise the recruitment questions etc. Can't find the link at the moment but you can search for it. I think it costs a little though.

    In my community we use a contact form which posts the application to a forum so our admins can vote on it.

    For the shoutbox you can use: '?do=embed' frameborder='0' data-embedContent>>

    and the donations: '?do=embed' frameborder='0' data-embedContent>> or

    and.. someone has just posted this before me.. which makes this post a little redundant but as I have written it I'm gonna post it..
  8. Rugger added a post in a topic: Donate   

    Donations is how my gaming community pays for everything. We are completely reliant on donations and have been for many years now. Our running costs are around $650 a month for all the servers - the donation tracker brings the money in and we route it to the service providers.

  9. Rugger added a post in a topic: profile privacy in IPB 4   

    Wow.. 7 pages worth! I have to thank you all for providing me with some great procrastination material, it is very much appreciated.

    One of the things that has become apparent to me is that everyone here is running different forums for different topics (some so large they just have to mention it). I personally run the largest website on the internet! (ok i'm lying).

    We are all using this platform because it is the best for our needs as a base however there are many changes we have made to make it our own and our websites unique - IPS (correct me if i'm wrong) is interested in producing software that is good for the majority whilst providing the means via configuration to change the most common settings. For changes that cannot be made by a simple configuration change there are applications and hooks with a great community driving them - the minority can use these features to make additional changes.

    In my opinion IPS has done a great job (yeah I get we pay them but no harm with a pat on the back) with not only providing features but also providing the means to get non-standard features.

    Now to this privacy/profile topic. My understanding is we have several parties here interested in similar yet different features, some wanting more 'social style' privacy options where the user is in control of their entire profile, some wanting privacy for specific fields, others.. well not sure they know themselves. I think some of the people that have made suggestions are looking for something fairly specialised and may need custom applications or hooks.

    I like how it has been suggested that users could select whether certain fields (dictated by the site admin) are shown in their profile or not. This I think would suit the majority of websites. The whole 'friends' viewing this and that option.. starts to complicate it for what I would think is the majority - that's people that are using the software for discussion of topic where the main focus is on the forums (correct me if i'm wrong (i'm not talking individually here, only the majority)).

    That's it really just wanted to put my thoughts in and that I like that (single) suggestion, the rest wouldn't affect me to be honest.

    Thanks for reading :smile:

    EDIT:

    Until then tapatalk could prove useful. Works well for my forum.

    I swear I didn't post my reply on this thread - meant to post it on a different one. oops :P

    As far as CloudFlare here is my two cents.

    I implemented it to help with loading the site faster and for DDOS protection - we are a gaming community and the most we get is script kiddies DOS'ing us, although it doesn't take us down it does cause slow loading speeds. CloudFlare has neutralised that for us so a big plus there.

    The caching of images works great, a couple of days after implementation the Gallery page was loading in a second rather than the 5 it used to take. Another big plus.

    I unlike most people posting here have not had downtime issues at all - the service has been constant. Medium plus.

    Now. The problems I have had are issues uploading, people double posting, double shouting (shoutbox). Essentially something is up with the Javascript and it's not loading correctly. Sometimes it doesn't load at all. I have disabled all of their optimisation which helped but I still get double posting.

    I will still use CloudFlare but will work on ironing out the issues - for what they give free or the $20pm subscription they are a great service. From comments here and around I do not think they are viable for larger websites.

    Yeah I have been looking at that. I will research what available libraries there are and see if I can build it in. If the game does not support querying itself then it can default back to the banners. 
     
    If there is a open source library then I don't see why it wouldn't be too hard to add. 
     
    Thanks for your comments.
