    Driver Error in tagged content
    On this site, when clicking a tag within a marketplace entry (example: [url="http://community.invisionpower.com/tags/downloads/nexus/"]http://community.invisionpower.com/tags/downloads/nexus/[/url]), a driver error is displayed.  This is consistently reproducable.

    PayPal would only do that if you have Nexus set up as the IPN URL in your PayPal preferences, which you should [u]not[/u] do. You need to remove it from the PayPal IPN preferences (once you've set it the first time, Nexus can send the URL with the request and it will work).

    Invoice notification contains "contact us" even if support module not in use
    If you are not using the support module (say you use an external service desk tool), usually the support options vanish off the front end (because a ticket cannot be submitted anyway) - however invoice notification emails still contain "Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns" which links to the inactive support module, through which you cannot submit a ticket as there are no departments. Although I realise this is a template controllable by the admin, it should really honour the disabled support module the same as the frontend does.

    Sphinx Template Error
    When building a Sphinx.conf from the ACP, the generated config file refers to "downloads_ccontent.field_1" in the IP.Downloads comment queries, but the downloads_ccontent table doesn't have a field_1 in it. This causes downloads comments not to get indexed at all (and spams up the Sphinx logs).

  5. Kyanar added a comment on a blog entry: Introducing IPS CDN Service   

    [quote name='Mark' timestamp='1345939027']
    There's nothing to integrate with... IP.Board already supports any CDN service - we're creating a new one :smile:


    Well, there is the fact that the CDN service built in will notify the provider when the content has changed (skin recache, etc) to force an update - it'd be good if this was able to be hooked into for other services (CloudFront, MaxCDN etc).

    Query strings containing / character cause page not found
    Using latest IP.Content.

    If you have a query string parameter which contains a / character, IPB redirects to the "Not Found" page configured for content. URLencoding the value before IPB gets it makes it work correctly.

    Repro steps:

    1. Configure IP.Content with friendly URLs, using the external index.php (not tested with IPS_DEFAULT_APP or /page/ friendly URL methods)
    2. Create page, example /test.html
    3. Browse to page with a query string containing a / character, example http://www.example.com/test.html?test=/test/

    Expected Result: /test.html loads correctly
    Actual Result: IP.Board redirects to the 404 page configured in IP.Content settings.

    Real life example: http://www.invisionpower.com/support/status/ (working), http://www.invisionpower.com/support/status/?test=/test/ (404)

  7. Kyanar added a comment on a blog entry: Nominated Charities   

    Just to clarify, you're probably looking for US charities I suppose (tax write-off and all that - and donating across borders might be an accounting nightmare)?

    I heard Lindy mention Ronald McDonald House - I could support that (working for a hospital board which happens to run one of the three children's hospitals in our country, we see the work they do quite personally).

    Also, erm, how in blazes have you raised NEGATIVE $973.48? Are you billing them? (I kid, it's probably a mistake. Still, might wanna fix it).
  8. Kyanar added a comment on a blog entry: IP.Board 3.4 Dev Update: IPS Connect   

    Still with the requirement for it to be a PHP script though. Many applications within my network are not PHP, but are actually mostly ASP.NET - certainly at least the ones I'd rather designate as a master are. The connector script should really be language agnostic - if it can talk "IPS Connect" it should be able to be pointed at and used.
  9. Kyanar added a comment: More button bug?   

    [quote name='Marcher Technologies' timestamp='1344401914']
    .... I would like to know how under any circumstances and in any way a conflict between a third-party modification and a third-party skin is an IPB bug?
    You read through that, I'm certain you will realize the futility of this 'bug report'.
    [/quote]

    Actually, it's nothing to do with add-ons at all - perhaps you should read Ryan's thread here (including the responses from Ryan H and Wolfie) rather than getting antagonistic towards another member reporting something he sees as a bug.

    Now, you're only going to notice this bug if you have a very specific number of apps installed (i.e. enough that you will have precisely enough tabs to fit into the space[i], [/i]but not enough so that a More button cannot fit). This seems to jive with my own experiences, even using the IP.Content navigation. It is pretty minor but a tad annoying, and I'd rather not have to introduce kludgy hacks again (previously, my own application would prevent the more button appearing by overriding ips.global.activateMainMenu and replacing it with an empty function. At least I think that's the function off the top of my head).

    IPC not taking into account setting for using Google JS or not
    Further to http://community.invisionpower.com/tracker/issue-36570-suggestion-use-cdn-for-injection-of-compiledjs/ - it seems to correctly use the CDN path now, but it still seems to assume that everyone wants to use Google Libs for their jQuery files. I don't, so I'd like it to take this into account - especially as I already load jQuery into my template, so I don't need (or want) to load it again.

  11. Kyanar added a comment: wrong insertion on </head>   

    I can also confirm this - except that in my case the IP.Content code is being inserted literally right into the middle of all my other script and link tags.

    Notifications, part deux
    I've not been receiving notifications for a while, and just started receiving them again. However, the notifications are showing someone else's user details. The notification is definitely correct for a commission payout for my product, but addressed to someone called "Neuro".

    The menus sit in the same spot really, but when I get back to my office I'll get a couple of screenshots of the front end, certainly.
  14. Kyanar added a comment on a blog entry: Fusion Menu 1.2 for IP.Board 3.2 Available   

    That's wonderful. Just FYI though, I only support legally purchased copies. Pirated copies are on their own.

    Where did you download your copy from? I've not seen any missing images.

    I just found out about your ibContact mod today & it sounds amazing! I signed up for your newsletter to receive updates as I'll definitely buy it when it's released. ^_^

  2. flaregun » Kyanar

    any word on the ibContact mod? It's the last piece of the puzzle for my site...

    Happy Birthday!!!

    IPB? Missing feature? There's an app for that.

    1. shamil

      I agree. Now, I need one :P

    Java update is beginning to hack me off. The CONSTANT UAC approval requests, every fricking day!

    1. Hennet

      disable uac :p

    2. Kyanar

      Oh hay-el no. I tried to disable Java Update, but it wouldn't have a bar of that. I know if it updates Java, Eclipse will break.

  7. alex.1096@yahoo.com » Kyanar

    Submitted a ticket on your site, very disappointed I can't use my paid application. :(

  8. Kyanar

    Aaaaand... there's your pre-sale.

    Just got Starcraft II, and realised I can't activate it becuase I don't know where my b.net keytag is. Grr.

    Six copyright links on a single skin. How NOT to market yourself.

    1. Olivier Turbis

      Always been the same thing. Only new thing is the credit box thingy. The skins are cheap, and you can remove the copyright for 30 bucks.

    2. Olivier Turbis

      just replied on Skinbox, Mat.

    3. AnthonyKinson

      what skins have 6 copyright links?

    4. Olivier Turbis

      Ours by default, but you can actually remove the half of them.

    5. Wolfie

      Why so many? o.O

    6. Olivier Turbis

      Always been the same thing. Only new thing is the credit box thingy which you can REMOVE.

    7. AnthonyKinson

      ahhh, cool, i'm not to fussed aslong as they aint all bunched together in one big area.

    8. Fishfish0001

      Its not really annoying. 2 are hidden in a popup, which is cool looking. I only know of 4, but Im probably just not looking :P

    9. DarkGizmo

      What skin is this?

    10. Fishfish0001

      Orb. And all of them.

    11. Wolfie

      One at the bottom, somewhere near the IPB copyright is plenty. More than that is excessive.

    12. Collin1000

      Screenshot or something? Im curious...

    13. Kyanar

      Thanks Olivier, all's well that ends well :). I just seemed a bit cheezy that in paid skins there was a big popup (yeah, I know you had to click on it) - and I did *not* like Sebastien's responses to legitimate concerns from lots of customers.

  11. Kyanar

    This place has more drama than Desperate Housewives today.

    @loyalpk: noone will switch to 2co for IPB mods and skins. The chargeback fees would bankrupt us and it costs more.

  17. Collin1000 » Kyanar

    I love your staff post color mod! Keep up the great work! Thanks for being so helpful in the community. :)

    Act. As always. Not like I relish the thought, working in government as I do.

  20. CTerry » Kyanar

    So what do you reckon? National/Maori coalition? National/ACT coalition? National minority government?

    Quite an eye for detail, this one.

    I love all of your responses regarding point systems being integrated into IPB. It amazes me how so many people beg IPS to put in a feature that they want that isn't even useful to the majority of the IPB community.
