  1. bfarber added a comment: Many images in the same container with the same date   

    I've taken this from Andy.  We came up with a gameplan.  We'll grab a count of the images with the same timestamp in the same container and in most cases this will be 0, in which case we will act as we do now.  When it is not 0 we can do it the hard way: grab all images with the same date, ordered by date, and exclude up until we hit the current image.  Capture any after up to our limit, and if that doesn't populate our limit then we can grab images greater than our date.  I'm working on this now with a data set locally I can reproduce with.

    Did that start in RC7?  Can you reproduce in RC6?  This was an issue happening in RC6 that should have been resolved in RC7.  If you can reproduce in RC7 but not RC6, please send me the application you are installing so I can test it.

    The first issue I can't reproduce, but it could be specific to the content on your site.  Please submit a ticket and reference this report.
    The second issue is a duplicate that was already fixed for the next release (which is why I'll mark this one fixed).

    Can you submit a ticket, ATTN: Brandon, and provide access to your environment?  There was a change because in testing application files were being extracted directly to /applications instead of the custom folder, but I'm assuming if you are having trouble now that the applications are being put into two-level deep folders in your case.  I'll need to test any changes against an environment that is having trouble now and that was previously having trouble.

  10. bfarber added a post in a topic: BBCodes don't work   

    We upgraded to the earliest alphas and there were many bugs with the rebuild tools that have since been resolved.
    If you upgrade from 3.4.x to the latest release, many background tasks are kicked off to get content ready for 4.0 once the upgrade is complete.  Some of these tasks include rebuilding bbcode and building the search index.  Any content on this site that is not rebuilt is not indicative of a current problem in the 4.0 upgrade or rebuild routines, but simply a problem in earlier alphas with regards to rebuilding content.
    You likely have background tasks in your ACP that will run (based on activity on the board), but you can either (1) set up a cron job to run them quicker, or (2) manually run the background tasks from the ACP dashboard.
  11. bfarber added a post in a topic: First Impressions - IPS 4 Suite (extensive)   

    We defaulted to 301 as a temporary solution but are going to review all redirects in the software and explicitly specify the appropriate code.  The original issue mentioned above has already been resolved at this time however.
  12. bfarber added a post in a topic: IP.Nexus - Inventory by size (clothing)   

    While this is a little hidden, I do believe this is the answer you are looking for if I'm reading your inquiry correctly.
  13. bfarber added a post in a topic: IP.Nexus 4.0 | IP.Board 4.0 - Contact Us Form   

    You could create a hook to override how the contact form is made or how the link is created.  Just post in the appropriate forum for help creating the hook.
  14. bfarber added a post in a topic: IPB Chat Client   

    Please login with your client account and post in the appropriate peer help forum.  This forum is a good candidate for instance.   Thanks!
  15. bfarber added a bug in Bug Tracker   

    Many images in the same container with the same date
    In earlier versions of Gallery you could bulk import images and the process occurred fast enough that many images can be imported with the same exact time stamp.
    This creates a problem with the next and previous images in the current version of Gallery.  If you have a container that has 20 images with the same time (for example) and you view one, the slider underneath the main image reflects that there are 20 images in the set, but if you try to slide next or previous to view all of the images the same images are repeatedly shown.
    An example is in ticket 909738 but it is easy to reproduce locally by adding several images to a single album and then updating them in phpmyadmin to all have the same timestamp.

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

      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.

    4. 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.

  25. AndyF » bfarber

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