  1. 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.

    ​It says you are following this in the upper right corner.

    mine upgraded perfectly and super quick
    now, I'm doing it again for Beta4A

    ​yeah, that was my impression as well

    Maybe I'm slow or blind, but are there upgrade instructions?   Do I not use the TAR upload and install?

    I love the new responsiveness on IPS4, but I'll still be looking to make Apps versions of my site after I upgrade. My competition has white label apps in the various app stores, so I must do so as well.

    I think I'm going to stop doing any installs on my test site until commerce, chat, and pages enter beta... or at least enter a phase where I can upgrade from one release to the next without needing a rebuild.  Pages is by far the most important app for me.

    Here's how I did it:
    Go to your master skin template
    scroll down to skin_newsletter
    Add this line in the appropriate spot:
    <img src='http://www.YOURDOMAIN.com/uploads/{$r['field_8']}' width="150" height="100" /> and adjust the width and height to your liking.

    Well I'm making progress.  Any idea how to strip the formatting from text?
  12. CheersnGears added a post in a topic: Pages Pre-release 3   

    So what is the difference between a pre-release and a beta?  And how come this isn't part of the Beta pack for the other applications?
    Just curious as to the reasoning behind it.

    Update: I have one newsletter sending through mandrill.... however the template updates are not held in the email even though they post in the topic properly.

    I'm having difficulty getting this running.  
    I have my templates set up the way I like, but it doesn't want to send via the Mandrill service.  
    Other outbound emails are being handled by Mandrill just fine.  If I turn off Mandrill, it will send the newsletter, though improperly formatted.
    From my Mandrill console, it looks like it is never even receiving the e-mail to handle it.
    It does create the topic properly and formatted properly.

    Profile Details Won't Save
    I'm trying to add my profile details here on the IPS site and they don't save.
    Additionally, entering a website where the H in Http is capitalized gives a "That type of url is not allowed" error.   If I put it in all lowercase, it just doesn't save, but no error message.

    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....
