  1. 3DKiwi added a post in a topic: Content - relational database fields   

    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?

    VDSL here in New Zealand for me. Cabinet in street is about 20m away from house so speed very good for VDSL. Waiting for fibre to come to my street.

    Renews - ​That would be a minefield for them.

    How can they have special pricing when active licence holders get version 4 for free?

    ​Not that I'm aware of and certainly not for version 4. Stay on 3.4.7 like I'm going to do and then see what happens with 4.1.

    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.
  11. 3DKiwi added a post in a topic: What are you reading right now?   

    Game of Thrones book 1.

    So have you set up notifications / follow this?

    I agree. Things look very messy.
  14. 3DKiwi added a post in a topic: The final date of implementation of the IP 4.0   

    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.

    I agree and that's why I use the Geolocation mod. With that you can deny access and or registration from countries that you specify.
