  1. Nathan Explosion added a post in a topic: Upgrade from IP. 3.4.x to IPS4.0 (updated)   

    A little tip regarding the setting up of the CRON job to handle the tasks for rebuilding - I upgraded my 3.4.7 test site, containing ~56,000 topics/2,600,000 posts, to RC3 on Wednesday and calculated out that the rebuilding tasks would take close to 72 hours to complete even with the CRON job set to every 1 minute (was seeing only a .02% increase every minute for the posts rebuild)
     
    The smallest interval that a CRON job can run at is every 1 minute - but there is a way to go lower: sleep xx; (where xx is the number of seconds to wait before running the command after the ; )
    I have 3 CRON jobs now set up to run the tasks, each every minute - first one is as presented by IPS when viewing the CRON options within the ACP , but the other two have sleep 20; and sleep 40; added prior to the same command.
    Result: the task processing was down to every 20 seconds, and I started seeing a .05%/.06% increase every minute for the posts rebuild as a result. So if you are in a position to know that running faster than a minute will not impact your hosting, then give it a try.
    Note: once the rebuild is complete, no real need to keep the extra 2 so just revert back to having the 1 running every minute.

    In 3.4 (and earlier) you get a "Your post is empty" prompt, and it is not possible to post an empty post - so, yep you can prevent users posting blank posts (and it presents this if only a space is entered too)
    Good news - when I was implementing CKEDITOR in another site, this was an issue and it is possible to check upon submission using the getText() function in the ckeditor API. It strips the html from the content and checks if it does contain actual text. So away with the issue of a blank post as the <p></p> is covered. But what if someone enters a space - simple use jquery .trim function.

    Previous discussion on this one:

    The most important bit in the thread - open a support ticket and explain the situation. I did the other day and they were indeed very nice and helped out.

    Here is a picture of your forum after I've made it possible for my laptop to resolve the non-working url (added www.prueba.invisionhispano.com to my local hosts file)
     

  9. Nathan Explosion added a post in a topic: Problem with theme   

    Ok - if you think that's not a problem with the theme, which is handled by CSS/JS files which are being served from a URL that doesn't work, then fair enough. Good luck.
  10. Nathan Explosion added a post in a topic: Problem with theme   

    Not just the BETA but also the WWW in the url - you aren't serving a site on http://www.prueba.invisionhispano.com

    Here is the reason the site is displayed as it is - in your page source code:

    There you go - explained your confusion much clearer. Nice one.
  13. Nathan Explosion added a post in a topic: Where is the Feedback and Suggestions forum for IPBoard?   

    Don't take this the wrong way but try wording your feedback in a less obtuse way - it would be understood and accepted better than the way you are doing it right now.
    Stuart has linked you to the "Suggestions and Ideas" forum, which has 2 subforums but is also a forum in itself. You, for some reason, are saying that "Company Feedback" is for IPBoard? It's not, and Stuart hasn't said that either.. And I can see that the "Community Suite Feedback" forum has subforums for other products in the suite other than the board.
    So, here's a better way of providing the feedback: I can see that there is a subforum for other products in the suite, so will there be a specific subforum for the board at any point?
