  1. David_B added a comment on a file: (DP34) Custom Links   

    This does not work correctly on 3.4. I keep getting 504 errors.
  2. David_B added a post in a topic: meta image   

    Agreed. This is the logical approach and seems odd it isn't the default.
  3. David_B added a post in a topic: Flag As Spammer   

    Clicking Flag as Spammer does not unapprove posts/comments in IPContent. Any spam I get is IPC comment spam, it's like they know the weak spot! The "Unapprove" actions should extend to the whole suite, but firstly IPC ;)

    I would really like to see this in a future release if possible.
  4. David_B added a comment: Viewing pages sometimes redirecting to homepage   

    I can confirm this works. Took me a while to figure out why it was redirecting, but this patch fixed the problem!

    Looking forward to the gold release. Well done. Some nice features in this round of updates.

    I can confirm the same issues with Blog on my end. vB4.1.9

    Depends on what you are doing really. So long as you are not changing content like post or articles then the answer is probably yes.

    If your making custom mods, styles, etc then you can just prune all posts,topics etc, and reimport.


    1. Import
    2. Make your changes
    3. Prune everything and delete forums
    4. Backup you clean, but modded database
    5. Reimport

    In that case, I'll have a lot of manual merging to do. I would have expected an option on how to deal with duplicate users.

    I am converting 2 forums to 1 IPB install. I have ran though some test conversions and seem to be having problems with Users Merging.

    Both forums I own have a lot of the same members, but they don't always merge and I end up with 2 users. E.g Username and Username12345675

    I'm assuming merges work off of email addresses? If so, any way I can change this to merge on username?

    I have a NePHP database I want to import articles from. I know this convertor doesn't exist, but are there any documents on the syntax so I can write my own one?

    Super excited about IPC 2.3

    It's going to be perfect fro my vB conversion in the new year. I just hope it comes soon!
  12. David_B added a post in a topic: Password options - IPB vs VB vs Other?   

    I believe it remembers by using cookies.

    If say a user enters the password on there home computer, they will need to enter again at work. Or even if they change browser.

    I'm not totally sure this is correct for the latest version but it is at least how I have experienced the password protected forum feature in older versions of the software.

    Awesome idea. Looking forward to this!

    Well done guys.
  14. David_B added a post in a topic: Convert & Redirect Question   

    Hi guys,

    I'm looking into my options of converting and merging some sites to IPB. Here is what I have.

    domain1.com - Running Xenforo
    domain2.com - Running vB4 and vBseo
    domain3.com - Running IPB 3.2

    I want domain1.com to run IPB 3.2 and have the other sites merged into it AND their old urls redirected to the new ones. The sites a fair amount of traffic and it is imperitive I retain it.

    I would appreciate some suggestions on the best way to go about this. I know we have redirection scripts, I'm just not sure they will all work simultanously or how they will work with the domain changes.
