  1. bfarber added a post in a topic: Guest content possible?   

    Yes when posting they can specify their username.
  2. bfarber added a post in a topic: Access to resources forum?   

    In their client area.  They are welcome to submit a ticket for assistance if necessary.
  3. bfarber added a post in a topic: v4?   

    It is under development.  A pre-release has been made available already.
  4. bfarber added a post in a topic: Question about posting editor   

    You go there and supply the regular expression necessary to match a media service URL, and the replacement to use.  If you are not familiar with regular expressions, you will likely need to inquire in the peer help forum for assistance.  You can look at the existing ones that are set up as examples.

  5. bfarber added a post in a topic: What is the process   

    1) Yes
    2) We provide technical support for the converters
  6. bfarber added a post in a topic: Can I hide the thread just allow the author see it ?   

    You can configure forums so that topic submitters can only see their own topics.  This is done at the forum level, not for individual topics.
  7. bfarber added a post in a topic: Need Help   

    There are a few point system addons available in the marketplace .
  8. bfarber added a post in a topic: Guest content possible?   

    Yes you can allow guests to post.
  9. bfarber added a article in Theme and Design   

    Designers Mode
    The 4.0 IPS Community Suite includes a feature called Designers' Mode, allowing designers an advanced capability for building and editing custom themes.  When Designers' Mode is enabled, the software will write all themes to a themes/ folder in the root directory of your forum.  To enable Designers' Mode, visit the ACP -> Customization -> Themes and then click the "Designers' Mode" button to begin.
    The general folder structure that will be written to disk is:
    Underneath the css/ folder, all CSS files for both the front end and the ACP will be written.  All images will be written to the images folder, and all templates will be written to the templates folder with a .phtml extension.  You can then use your favorite code editor or IDE to modify the templates and CSS files.  You can add new images by placing them in the appropriate folder as well.
    When you are finished editing your theme, you can browse back to the Themes page in the ACP and click the same Designers' Mode button to import the changes from disk, in order to export your theme and share.

    You just paste the link in

  11. bfarber added a post in a topic: Fixing LDAP credentials   

    Done.  In the future please report bugs to the bug tracker, however.

  12. bfarber added a post in a topic: Unknow html tag   

    It didn't need the ?.  I've fixed it.
  13. bfarber added a post in a topic: robots.txt   

    You would likely do best to evaluate the 403 errors that you are seeing and adjust your robots.txt (or .htaccess if redirecting is a better solution) based on them specifically.
  14. bfarber added a post in a topic: Would be nice for us skinners   

    Can you provide a specific example so that I can see what you are referring to?
  15. bfarber added a post in a topic: Replies going to hidden?   

    It was approved when I checked it - I just approved the replies to it.

    3. bfarber

  10. gxgEric » bfarber

    Is there any chance we can get a manual fix for the FURL issue with categories?

  11. » bfarber

    You're working too hard and too long!!! ;-)

    1. bfarber

      No rest for the weary.

  14. abdo mohamed » bfarber

    I'm happiest when When I see you online ^_^

  15. realmaverickuk » bfarber

    Sent you a PM, take a look at it ASAP :)

  16. bfarber

    Let us know what you think about 3.2. :)

    1. AndyF

      I shall :)

    2. Hennet

      say its awesome.

    3. Amy T

      I still wish the email for notifying me of this had the link directly to the status update instead of the settings. It would make it easier to find this. Plus the site is going slow.

    4. realmaverickuk

      Love it :)

    5. boboss78

      and what do you think about that

    6. DarkGizmo

      I think you guys really need to skin up the who's online area, it looks too bland as it is now and very un-finished/unprofessional. fix that and 3.2 will be awesome. :-D

    7. GoGators

      I liked it so much, I purchased it a few days ago. It really looks great and responds nicely. :D

    8. bfarber

      Thanks for the feedback everyone!

    9. Amy T

      you are welcome.

    10. Tripp_UK

      Apart from the bugs that's being fixed, fine. Just one major issue that's really bugging me. <-- That

    11. JennB

      We love 3.2 BUT...really would like to see a global sidebar :) Do you have an ETA on when that feature will be released?

  17. DarkGizmo » bfarber

    If you have an IP.Downloads license and are interested in testing the pre-release, please see this topic for more information:

    1. Glumbo

      Link not working?

    2. .Peter

      I thought this was going to be Contributor thing.

    3. TheRevTastic

      I already asked that in a post, it was answered too.

    4. .Ian

      open to all now

    5. AndyF

      '[#10342] We could not determine which forum this topic is in.'

    6. .Ian

      Can see the post, but nothing on the qa page.

    7. AndyF

      My perms are different though ;) , although I should be able to see that topic. Hmmm.

    8. .Ian

      thought perms went out with Dalglish ;)

    9. AndyF


    10. bfarber

      The link will only work for those with an active license. If you can't see the file on the QA page, it means you don't have an IP.Downloads license. So, to summarize...If you have an ACTIVE IP.Downloads license, you may participate in QA testing the IP.Downloads release which is now available.

    11. .Ian

      Downloads - Purchased: 25 Aug 2010; Renewal: 24 Feb 2011 - mind you just realised I cannot open posts in the downloads support forum. Will log a ticket.

    12. bfarber

      Yes, if you can't access the downloads support forum, that is an indication the forums aren't seeing your license. Can always try logging out and back in, as well, since that's when your permissions get resynchronized.

  24. AndyF » bfarber

    He did tell me once, although I've forgot. Refers to Keith iirc.

  25. Joerg-K » bfarber

    i want say only thank you, for your work! I love to work wit the Databases! I hope you have a lot of success with your work in the future!
