  2. bfarber added a comment: 3.3 --> 4.0 RC2 Emoticons not installed   

    How were your emoticons set up in 3.3 (you mentioned a non-standard path for CDN)?  The 4.0.0 upgrader routine indeed tries to move the files to the 'correct' location during the upgrade from \IPS\ROOT_PATH . '/public/style_emoticons/'.  It sounds like that is not where your emoticons were located?

    I'm afraid that's not a bug, however please feel free to post feedback in the appropriate suggestions forum.

  6. bfarber added a comment: [RC3] Pages upgrade weirdness   

    Is this happening when upgrading from 3.4.x to 4.0, or from RC2 to RC3 (for instance)?
    Does that disabled page have the database embedded into it, out of curiousity? 4.0 does not allow a database to be embedded into more than one page but 3.4.x did not really stop this.

  8. bfarber added a comment: [RC3][Pages]0 comments after upgrade   

    Were these comments submitted directly, or were they in forums (Pages has the capability to store comments as posts in the forums).

    We blocked AJAX polling from updating location data, which touches the timestamp.

  12. bfarber added a comment: RC3: Incorrect number of guests online   

    On our site, we did some digging and could not find anything wrong.  We did note that one of our internal servers was connecting to the company forums very frequently which we resolved (and partially explained our higher than normal guest count), but otherwise the guest count seems normal.
    It is important to note that a single IP address can in fact trigger multiple sessions.
    If you have any specifics that you feel we should investigate please do clarify.  Unfortunately your report does not give us much to go on right now (although we will continue monitoring our company forums to look for any potential issues on our own as well).

  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 http://community.invisionpower.com/topic/338913-notification-when-someone-add-your-name/page__pid__2117790#entry2117790

    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. http://community.invisionpower.com/topic/342553-32-avatars/ <-- 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: http://community.invisionpower.com/topic/326821-ipdownloads-230-rc-1/

    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

      lol

    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.

      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
