Suggest you stick with 3.4.7 as I'm doing until at least IPB version 4.1. I'll then make a decision whether I stick with IPB or move to Xenforo. Now that it has a gallery module I am no longer tied to running IPB to having an integrated forum and gallery.
This is basic forum functionality we're talking about here. All I know is I won't be upgrading to version 4.0. I'll wait until 4.1 is out with the improvements. What we have now is too rough around the edges.
Totally agree with topic starter. I run a 3D / CG forum and we have lots of image attachments. I need total control over things and from what I can see here with IPB 4 there's less control than there is with version 3.
Now you can see why many of us who have been around for a while don't rush to upgrade. In my opinion IPS should have held off releasing version 4 until the speed issues had been addressed. Personally I can't see the point in bringing out a new version of something if it's slower / more resource heavy than the previous version. It should be faster and I would have expected this with version 4 being touted as a major overhaul. No way will I be upgrading until speed issues are addressed.
Better than I expected. Took a 100 pages or so to get into. The hardest thing is remembering the names of the characters from the TV series and trying to match to the same characters in the book. The book fills in a few gaps in the story line. Reading on a Kindle by the way. Now my preferred way of reading books.
Since you've been a member here since 2011 you should know by now that IPS can't give exact dates for when something will be ready. It will be ready when it's ready. Since we're at release candidate stage however, the final release version can't be that far away. Just depends on how well the bug fixing goes. Checking the bug tracker can often give an indication of how many more RC's are coming.
Dumb question but why are some of you diving in an upgrading live forums when the final release version isn't out yet? There's bound to be a few issues. Those of us who have been around a bit longer and or run larger forums wait until at least the .02 or .03 version is out before contemplating upgrading.
Topic titles will also get truncated in IP Content / IP Pages created blocks e.g. New Topic block. If it's good enough to truncate there then it's good enough to give admins the control should they want it to control the length opf titles in regular forums.
I would like a character limit. I just don't want members posting excessively long titles regardless of what screen anyone might have. I'm running a 1920 x 1080 HD monitor which at this point in time is a pretty common resolution and this long title looked awful to me.
