  1. CheersnGears added a post in a topic: Fix Comments after topic merge?   

    I had an IP content article that I had written.  A user posted a topic in the forums on the same subject while I was writing my piece and had gotten a number of comments on it.  I (foolishly) merged the threads thinking that new comments from the IP.Content article would go into the new merged thread.  This isn't the case, if someone leaves a comment, it just goes to the great beyond.
    Is there any way to fix this so that comments on that article go to the proper thread?

    Keep in mind that it is the holiday time and a weekend.  IPS staff are on a much needed and deserved break.

    Smoothness, speed, ease of use, being bug-free and add-on availability are all far more important than the default look.  Default look can always be changed. 
     
    The default look isn't even a consideration for me since I will be changing it anyway.

    This is a great app, but may I make a suggestion that would make it even more killer?
    Have the app move users who bounce and meet certain criteria (0 approved posts / Not logged in/active in X days) to another group for easy pruning.
    My suggestion come from this: My user database is close to 12 years old.  I just sent out a holiday card to my entire user base.  Aside from spreading tidings of comfort and joy, I had ulterior motives.... it would be a great indicator of defunct users.

    haven't you opened a ticket yet?

    ​I don't know about in IPS4, but in IPS3.4 you can modify the user profile template so that a user's website would be dofollow.  It would be for ALL users with URLs in that field though, not just certain users.

    ​Does your current board run on the default skin?  You'll be able to get other skins and layouts.
    Personally, 3.4.7 is reliable, but feels very old in terms of how things work. Even with some of the more modern skins that are available, we can only do so much with the current software.  I really feel that IPS let 3.4 live too long before starting 4.0.
    The framework that IPS4 is a launchpad for many more expansions.

    ​That pointed me in the right direction, thanks.  Here's what I did
    I changed in ipbstyles.css 
    #ipbwrapper { margin: 0 auto; /* Uncomment for fixed */ /*width: 980px;*/ /* Fluid */ width: 70% ; min-width: 960px; } #empty { min-height: 60px; to
    #ipbwrapper { margin: 0 auto; /* Uncomment for fixed */ /*width: 980px;*/ /* Fluid */ width: 70% ; min-width: 960px; } #empty { min-height: 0px;

    Get the IP addresses 
    Block at the firewall or at .htaccess.  If you have cpanel, you should be able to block by IP in there.

    When my page loads, I want my Logo banner to be as close to the top of the browser window as possible.  Eventually I want to even remove the admin and user menu bar down below the logo as well, but that's not what this request is for.
    ​I want to go from this:

     
    To this:

    What bit would I need to adjust if I wanted to chop all of the top padding off of my site?

  13. CheersnGears added a post in a topic: Pages question regarding fields   

    When we upgrade our existing 3.4.x sites to 4.0, will existing fields in our databases be preserved?  The reason I ask is because I notice in the articles system inside of Pages 4.0, the Teaser Paragraph field seems to be absent. I use this field often on my site and don't want to lose it.  I've also added a few other fields to my default articles database that I would like to have preserved.   I don't mind having to redo my blocks and pages, but I do want to keep the data in those fields.

    The Bug tracker above is an example of Pages 4.0.

    You guys are clearly in the middle of a very busy time with the release of the IPS4 Betas. I've had three issues on my 3.4.x install that came up and required placing tickets for support. None were critical, yet you came through and addressed them faster than I'd even expect in a normal time.   Cheers and kudos to you!
    I have been publicly critical of the support team in the past,  so it's only fair to also point out when you exceed expectations.

    If standing outside the entrance to the building smoking a giant cigar is going to be the new "thing", then me carrying a fire extinguisher to lunch is going to be a new thing too....
