  1. Teddy Rogers added a post in a topic: Client Area - "Update The Access Information"   

    In the Client Area is it possible to have a specific tab in the left hand menu where it then takes you to a list of your "access information" for each board - or at least make it a bit easier to find? Maybe it's just me but a few years ago it took me ages to find where I needed to enter this information as part of a support ticket and today I've experienced the same thing. It's not every year I need to go in there and I don't think it's in the most logical of locations to find it when I need to...

    Now I have high hopes! :smile:
     
    I must admit it is good to see you guys are working on improving and developing it further, its been needing work ever since it was implemented in to IP.Board as it's been my main gripe...

    I think the term feature rich is a bit over used these days, my eyes start glazing over when I read the term being used in the first sentence. It's an editor!
     
    I will be content if this one works correctly. Sick of copying and pasting stuff in to the editor and then posting only to find the formatting and line breaks are all broken. Not truly "what you see is what you get"...

  4. Teddy Rogers added a post in a topic: Remove all reputation given by member   

    I am here because I was searching for a similar thing. My board uses the positive/negative reputation system and I've had some clown give negative reputation scores to another member unnecessarily. It kind of takes away the meaning of the positive/negative reputation system because in its current form it is highly open to abuse.
     
    Possibly an improvement could be considered in IP.Board 4.0 release?

    Feel such a noob with that answer! Thank you for the information...

    The "Is this file broken?" option in Downloads, how are administrators meant to be notified when it has been used; email or highlighted on the board index as an "Active Report" in the Report Center? I don't receive any notification unless I manually go to the "Broken Files" tab in the Moderator Control Panel. What am I missing?

  7. Teddy Rogers added a post in a topic: Collations : utf8_unicode_ci vs utf8_general_ci   

    Today I converted my database from latin1_swedish_ci to  utf8_general_ci using bfarber's  Character Set Converter script. However I am curious to know why he opted to use  utf8_general_ci especially as IP.Board now defaults all collations to utf8_unicode_ci , Isn't utf8_unicode_ci more accurate? Should I worry about needing to convert them again?

  8. Teddy Rogers added a post in a topic: lack of utf-8?   

    Thought I'd follow up on this with some examples. Here is a member using special characters in their display name, "███". When you click on their name to take you to their profile it never loads the page because of the characters, simply times out.
     
    There are also topics which are effected. For example, if the topic title uses the character "#" the page will not load. However if you replace "#" with "%23" it loads the page just fine.
     
    All these special characters need to be converted. Any ideas on how to do this?

  9. Teddy Rogers added a post in a topic: lack of utf-8?   

    I have come across this problem today after converting my database from latin1 to utf8_general_ci. Anyone know the best way to get display names converted and showing up correctly?
     
    Also I noticed links to topics with special characters in the title are not loading the page, they just time out and give a white screen. Would like to get these fixed up to...

    I don't know of any project that does this at least not in the same aspect as Honey Pot and similar services. All I have seen are lists to import in to the ban filter but these often lists become outdated rather quickly.

    Maybe another member here knows something more which could be useful?

  12. Teddy Rogers added a post in a topic: Download: Stop Spammer Registration   

    Is there any way of checking against a database of disposable email addresses and stopping people registering if its on that list? At the moment I check manually and add any disposable email addresses I find to the ban filter. I am hoping there is an easier automated way...
