  1. Blue Lou added a record in IP.Board   

    User registration date when merging user accounts
    UserName#1 join date: 1/1/2012

    UserName#2 join date: 1/1/2013
     
    If I merge UserName#1 with UserName#2 and intend to keep the name UserName#2 for the account, the join date of UserName#2 is kept.
     
    I beleive that the software should check to find which is the older date and update the merged user account record with it. At present it's possible to have users with a registered join date years after their first post.

    Thanks Michael, most helpful.

    I've been visited by http://ahrefs.com/robot recently, maybe it's worth adding to your own list?
  3. Blue Lou added a post in a topic: Checkbox to remove existing entries on .ics import update   

    Is it possible to include an option to remove the existing entries of the .ics file feed each time the feed import is updated?

    In my particular scenario, the ics file is a fixture list for a football club and when the games are moved, the original date the game was scheduled for remains in the IP Calendar db, the new date is also imported.

    This means that I have two entries for the one event on two seperate dates (sometimes on the same date if the .ics files had a minor change)

    At the moment, I manually remove the feed and re-import it if I find a problem in the hook.

  5. Blue Lou added a comment: Formatting problem with imported ics file (Calendar app)   

    Hi,

    the issue still still appears to be there for me.I am using IP Board 3.2.3.

    The feed url is http://www.evertonfc.com/fixtures/fixtures.ics

    Formatting problem with imported ics file (Calendar app)
    After importing ics files into the calendar, the text after the semi-colon but before the colon appears in the Calendar app's output:

    For example, the line in the ics file would be:
    DESCRIPTION;ENCODING=QUOTED-PRINTABLE: Barclays Premier League - Everton vs Chelsea (A) Sat 15th 17:30

    Displays as the following on the calendar:

    "[b]ENCODING=QUOTED-PRINTABLE: [/b]Barclays Premier League - Everton vs Chelsea (A) Sat 15th 17:30"

    As far as I know the emboldened text shouldn't be there.

    Youtube embed code (still works but dated)
    The embed code for YouTube videos has been changed by YouTube.

    The new version allows videos to be made full screen and contains a button to open the link on YouTube.

    Please see:

  8. Blue Lou added a post in a topic: [BUG]Date problem   

    I'm using IP.Content and have created a custom database. I am using DATE to record date of births but some are before 1/1/1970 and as a result the dates are appearing as Jan 01 1970 00:00. However, when I go to edit the records, the correct dates are displayed.

    Is there anyway to get around this? bfarber has said elsewhere that it is working as intended which leaves me little options.

    In a future edition can the 'Date' entry on the manage fields be renamed to 'Date and time' so that a true date can be introduced that doesn't limit what dates can be entered.

    Also, how can I fix the calendar for inserting dates, it currently treats 11/3/2011 as 3 November 2011 and not 11 March 2011 as it would be in a British format.

    Can't merge topics with FURL enabled
    It does not seem possible to merge topics using the friendly url from search results.

    The error message displayed is:

    [quote][#10389] We could not find one of the topics you were attempting to merge. [/quote]

    The forum software does not seem to recognise the [url="http://www.domain.com/index.php?/topic/[topic id]-[topic title]/page__view__findpost__p__[post id]__hl__[search term]__fromsearch__1"]http://www.domain.com/index.php?/topic/[topic id]-[topic title]/page__view__findpost__p__[post id]__hl__[search term]__fromsearch__1[/url] url format as a valid input for merging the topics.

  10. Blue Lou added a post in a topic: Record titles   

    Please allow for two fields to become titles together.

    I have first name and last name as fields but currently I am only able to choose one or the other. I'd like to set the title as "firstname lastname"

    Can support be added for Spotify URIs ?

    For example spotify:track:3PbsDnKdrZY0ttX7VE9s5R becomes an active link spotify:track:3PbsDnKdrZY0ttX7VE9s5R
  12. Blue Lou added a post in a topic: Files that have not changed in 3.02?   

    It's not excluding a small number of files now though is it? The upgrade documentation says to upload the 'upload' folder. That's over 2,400 files.

    There were 'only' 509 changed files.. nearly 2,000 are being re-uploaded for no reason if you follow the upgrade documentation.

    As of 3.03 can Invision please re-introduce making upgrade downloads with only changed files available?
  13. Blue Lou added a post in a topic: Files that have not changed in 3.02?   

    Why don't Invision release changed files in a separate download to the full IP Board download ?

    CSS Does not save
    When I change ipb_styles.css and click save in the ACP, it will save a blank page.

    I'm having to make changes through PHPMyAdmin at the moment to be able to customise the skin.

    The problem is it won't display any blog that doesn't belong to that blog number...
