  1. bfarber added a post in a topic: CKeditor developers?   

    Depending on the media type, you may not need to create a ckeditor plugin.  You can write a Suite plugin that extends the text parser class to add more oembed and other embeddable media checks.
  2. bfarber added a post in a topic: Spanish / English compatibility? Facebook log-ins? Twitter? Gmail? Ymail? Jfusion?   

    You can allow anyone to edit, and you can restrict editing to a certain number of hours as well if you wish (which is how we have it set up).
  3. bfarber added a post in a topic: Number of users online   

    The count includes both registered and unregistered (guest) users.  It is a rolling 15-minute window average, so a spike won't cause you to go over your limit, but an average number of users online above your plan limit would require you to upgrade.
    You are able to move to your own hosting down the road should you wish to do so, however you would need to purchase a self-hosted license at that time.  YOu are able to modify templates and apply addons with the Community in the Cloud package, however the files are encoded so you will not be able to modify them (addons in our marketplace do not require file edits).

    Viewing queued posts bad pagination

    I clicked in to view queued posts, and the pagination was generated using the total topic post count.

    Why would such tools be needed?
  6. bfarber added a post in a topic: Rebuild the old posts on here?   

    We did upgrade a backup of our company forums before upgrading the live server.  We shook at as many bugs as we could there, and then upgraded here to help us along the path to stabilizing the software for wider release.
    We encourage you not to upgrade your site until the software has gone "final" and is in a stable supported release, definitely.
  7. bfarber added a post in a topic: Breadcrumb improvement   

    Yes, you are looking at the mobile view in your screenshot, not the desktop view.  This could be caused by your monitor resolution if you are viewing maximized browser window on a desktop.
  8. bfarber added a post in a topic: Reply to email   

    This is not a built in feature, however it is possible to create an addon which does this.
  9. bfarber added a post in a topic: Spanish / English compatibility? Facebook log-ins? Twitter? Gmail? Ymail? Jfusion?   

    There is no word on when 4.0 will go "final" yet.
    You can default the notify me of replies to on and users can set their own personal account preferences in their notification settings area.
    You can move threads from one forum to another and leave a redirect link in the process.
  10. bfarber added a post in a topic: PHP Fatal error   

    A bug was reported to the tracker yesterday related to this error.
  11. bfarber added a post in a topic: Keyboard Shortcut for saving in ACP?   

    Most forms can be submitted (saved) using the standard browser access key modifier + S (so on Windows Firefox it is ATL+Shift+S for instance).

About Me

I'm a 31 year old Zend-certified PHP developer working for Invision Power Services, Inc. I've been here since 2005 and every year just gets better and better.

When I'm not working I like to travel, play video games, watch movies, read, and spend time with my family (pets included). I live in central Virginia and have 3 wonderful children I dedicate my whole life to.  I am currently engaged to the love of my life and we are planning to marry next year.

    3. bfarber

      I have 4 cups of coffee every morning (and afternoon for that matter).. :x

  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

    Hey Brandon just noticed you're in management now! congrats! :)

  18. Michael » 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!
