    Yes we will start new categories in the next week or so.

    I am sure you enable AWS integration for CDN that would improve more. Not to mention memcache and such.
  3. Charles added a post in a topic: Beta 6 worse than Beta 5   

    ​Can you link us to the bug you reported about that?

    Please post bugs in the bug tracker. Thank you.
  5. Charles added a post in a topic: Still no "Only search in titles" option   

    ​As usual we are looking at a whole lot more than this
    While the focus in this topic is all about one very specific, very narrow item there is a whole lot more going on. We are not going to just slap a change in without considering a broader scope.
    The search system in 4.0 is much more technically proficient than in 3.x. It also works very differently: so step 1 was to implement the new technology and now step 2 is to evaluate how we are using it. Obviously it has taken some real-world use to learn how best to implement things. As you can imagine, searching for "test" over and over on a staging site doesn't really give you a good feel for the best way to handle search .

    We are certainly willing to add a "only search in titles" option. Some of you seem to think we are dead-set against it

    Yes you are having issues because you are not doing what you want to do as the system intends it.

    IPS Community Suite 4.0.0 Beta 6 Available
    We are happy to release the sixth beta of IPS Community Suite 4.0!
     
    IPS welcomes any clients who enjoy testing beta software to participate and post bugs in our  bug tracker . These beta releases help us to provide a more stable final release and the more people who participate in testing the better it is for all.
     
    This release makes available:
    Forums Blog Gallery Downloads Calendar Commerce Pages  
    The upgrade system is now available and you can upgrade from IP.Board 3.4.7 to test this system  However:   do not upgrade your live community!  IPS does  not  provide technical support or services for beta releases. You can append "-TESTINSTALL" on to the end of your license key to allow to a separate install for test purposes.  More information on license keys...
     
    Downloading
     
    You can download IPS Community Suite 4.0.0 Beta 6 in the  client area . Go to your Purchases section, select your license, and click the download link. IPS Community in the Cloud clients do not yet have access to the beta.
     
    You will be able to upgrade from Beta 6 to the first supported release of IPS Community Suite 4.0 when it is released. Unless major issues present themselves, we anticipate that Beta 6 is the final beta and next release will be supported. Please do help us test and report bugs. Thank you!
      
    Note:  If you are already running Beta 5 you can upgrade in your AdminCP. You will see a notice on your Dashboard. If you do not see it: go to Applications and click check for update.

    We will have Beta 6 today/tomorrow and from there it just depends on how that goes. We do hope that Beta 6 will be the last beta release and we will begin supported releases next.

    If people were to go through the drama of converting their software over a tiny tiny thing like topic title search limiting then I'm sure they could find bigger things to worry about
    If users really do find it difficult we will certainly implement a solution.
  12. Charles added a post in a topic: Still no "Only search in titles" option   

    ​That is not how software development works
    If we find that, in real world usage, people are missing the ability to search in titles only we will certainly add that option.

    ​We just truncated our search index here actually so you won't get good results on this site for a couple hours.
    ​The big difference with 3.4 is whatever section you are in, it changes the default search to that application. Now you need to select the application you are searching or it searches the whole suite by default.
    ​These are preferences.

    You can tell Google to only search page titles?
  15. Charles added a post in a topic: Disappointed In IPS 4   

    I am very confused about the "downgraded" comments about search in 4.0 vs 3.4.
    In 4.0 you can search throughout the entire suite at once. You could not do this at all in 3.4 as you had to toggle between each app. The underlying technology on 4.0's search is way better.
    I saw some talking about lack of "Search in topic titles" but that does not exist as we automatically weight the title of a content item more than the body of a content item. We can certainly add an option to limit to content item titles but we want to see how real-world use is first. No other search system lets you limit but the title of an item so it seems like an odd option.
