Upgraded to version 4 a few days ago. In version 3 when you browsed the member list in the ACP any banned members were highlighted in red. In version 4 they aren't and there's no quick at a glance method as far as I can see to see who is banned and who isn't. For example my other admin person will ban someone because their member name doesn't comply with our rules. I then can see he has banned them and don't need to take any further action. Now, I have no idea whether my other admin person has done anything or not. I've got to go into the new member's profile and check. Bit of a pain on a busy forum with 30 - 40 new registrations every day and a percentage of them get banned for not complying with our various rules on member names and profile content. Please bring back the red highlighting.
Same for me. I only had one smiley make it through the upgrade. I had to upload the image files again and add on the prefix "default_" to the file name. Second problem is any post prior to the upgrade now won't display the emoticon images. The text sort cut is shown instead.
So let me get this straight. I've got several IP Content created pages that use an IP Content database i.e. a plugin database and a benchmark database. If I upgrade to 4.02 today from 4.4.7 then these 2 databases won't work? Is this correct?
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.
