    [4.0.2] Creating new block - Missing Feed Categories
    So I am trying to create a block to feed from specific categories in my Articles database.  A number of my article sub-categories are missing from the drop-down box even though they are listed in the category list in Pages.
    When creating a block I see this: (note, nothing under Auto Shows, only one option under Opinion)

    But, my Pages category list is this

    ​OOooo... I like this!

    ​It seems to me that what they've done is a base for people to modify from and the Marketplace will be the solution to those difference in application.

    ​I hadn't heard of them before your post, but found a thread for them on TheAdminZone.com   I posted there and will give a look over.

    I just ran an upgrade on my test site.  It worked better than last time, but still not right.
     
    However, it seems much faster to complete the upgrade.

    [4.0.2] Error during Upgrade - getimagesize
    getimagesize(): Filename cannot be empty
    /home/ddowdell/public_html/4dot/applications/gallery/setup/upg_60000/upgrade.php::243
    getimagesize(/home/ddowdell/public_html/cheersandgears.com/uploads/1269887413//home/ddowdell/public_html/cheersandgears.com/uploads/1269887413/gallery_253_2_51861.jpg): failed to open stream: No such file or directory
    /home/ddowdell/public_html/4dot/applications/gallery/setup/upg_60000/upgrade.php::243
    the file path in the second error is clearly wrong though.

    My big worry once I move to 4.0 is how to get an app.
    I strongly disagree with IPS's policy of pushing the "Mobile Responsive Website" as the solution.  Having your site listed in the Apple AppStore, Google Play, and Microsoft Store is a big big big deal. It is one of the few chances I have to be listed next to the big names in automotive reporting since I will never rank there SEO wise.   
    I am using forum software, but I am moving away from the forum as the primary focus of my site.  I have been very IP.Content heavy for a few years now and I only see that increasing.  I need to get an app that will work with all of the aspects of IPS. Tapatalk is not the answer either (unless they do a complete re-design).

    I've had these exact same errors (and reported them) since RC5

    We can do that, but I'm hoping you'll be able to include a more permanent fix rather than just holding my hand through an upgrade process.  This is just for a test install so I can see how well the upgrade process runs. 
  10. CheersnGears added a comment: [RC7] Errors during 3.4.7 -> 4.0 RC7 upgrade 3/31/2015   

    I've tried this again with RC7a.   I still can't get a successful upgrade.  Same exact errors as above.
    I start with a blank folder and a blank SQL DB.
    I copy my existing folder structure to the blank folder and copy my existing DB to the new blank DB
    I modify my global config file
    I upload the RCx files, overwriting everything.
    I run the upgrade.
    I execute the Drop table command in the upgrade process
    I get the errors above
    The upgrade process claims complete, but none of the CSS is loading 
  11. CheersnGears added a post in a topic: How to speed up the Background Processes?   

    ​A while back you (or Charles, not sure) mentioned a script that IPS was going to provide to allow those of us who are power users to run the processes at a much faster rate (aside from the already provided cron task).  Any update on that?

    and again my CSS doesn't seem to install properly so there is no skin on the site.

    It was there, but it looks like an old version.  For some reason that file didn't get overwritten during the upload even though all of the other files did.  I've uploaded the file from the Zip and kicked off the upgrade process again
  15. CheersnGears added a post in a topic: Idea towards storage spaces..   

    Well, I signed up, but I can't make the website work.  I created a container but the container doesn't appear in my control panel.  I tried to create the container again and it says that a container with that name already exists.  I tried to create an SSH key, the page just refreshes and nothing happens.
    Pretty website that looks promising... but it needs to work.

    Hello,

    I would like to take a look at your website, can you tell me where can I see it?

    Thanks

    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....
