  1. Woodsman added a bug in IPS4 Bug Tracker   

    IPS4.0 Beta 2 to board Upgrade
    After a few tries upgrading my test site. I get the same issue of an empty Block Manager.
    Looking through the databases I have found that the core_widget table is empty.
    I tried with no luck rebuilding, exporting and importing the tables from another test install and failed due to lack of permissions.

    Seems I did another later on... I will see what I can find and repost it

    This is going tgo sound stupid but...
    Are the apps showing at the boards front end and not the ACP?

    Back on the preview the documents were removed for a short period then convinced to be reinstated.
    Since then I converted them to a PDF format. I sent them off to Lindy but didn't hear anymore about them, but here they are.
    Now remember... Things have changed a bit from the preview these were made from to the beta version we are working with today. So any changes you make to your board always have a backup.

    Are you trying this on a local board? As in using Wamp or Xampp?
  6. Woodsman added a post in a topic: Lost Apps in IPS 4.0 Beta 2   

    As far as the first question about lost apps, found the issue and fixed it. All apps and settings showing in the control panel again.
    Including the mysterious gray bar in forum settings. All settings seem to be back as before.

    Has this happened to you?
    After setting up a full test board with forum and download categories all seems to work fine in the front.
    But going back in the acp to make a few corrections I seem to have lost all apps with the exception of the forum.
    The Blog, Downloads and Gallery are now gone... While under Forum, Settings produces a heavy line rather than settings themselves.
    If this happened to others and you were able to find the problem chime in I have spent a day trying to figure this one out....
    Another question while I am at it.
    Has anyone successfully made a test upgrade?

    It has alway been the best practice to upgrade a live board after the final version comes out and not during a beta. The first and biggest reason is no support for this. The 2nd reason is for testing and reporting bugs much like the previews.
    If on the other hand you are looking to upgrade a closed (hidden) test site to see how it is going to work this is fine but also remember upgrading a live site being a beta you are do so at your own risk.

    I see...
    Right off the top of my head I know you can do this in the Calendar, but there may possibly be a mod of this type in the marketplace.

    A poorly written .htaccess can surly make for a bad day.
    If you find that you need it copy the code example under System Settings > System > Search Engine Optimization.
    Scroll to Friendly URL Features > Use .htaccess mod_rewrite question.
    Via FTP go to the root directory of your forum create a new .htaccess file and paste the code you copied into it
    Your issue should be fixed.

    Unless I am misunderstanding your question, this is already built in. Example look above your post to the top right of your avatar... Posted date and time stamp is in lite gray.
  12. Woodsman added a post in a topic: Ops image on left side instead of right?   

    Yes it makes sense but the answer is not so simple.... This will need to be coded into the skin or skins you want this to show in....
  13. Woodsman added a post in a topic: Mark original post as best answer?   

    In your ACP Forum Tab, Forums > Manage Forums > Edit Forum you want to apply Best Answer to.
    Scroll to Permission Settings. Enable 'Best Answer' Feature? tick yes.
    Also tick the next box below. Enable topic starter to toggle best answer.
  14. Woodsman added a post in a topic: how can i fix ERROR 500 - INTERNAL SERVER ERROR   

    There are 2 other things to look  at as I have fixed this same error on a few other boards
    one has to do with poorly written .htaccess which was the biggest culprit on their boards.
    To test this go into your ACP - System Settings > System > Search Engine Optimization.
    Scroll down to Friendly URL Features - Use .htaccess mod_rewrite and tick no then save.
    Go back to your forum and refresh. If this fixes the issue then your .htaccess in your forum root is the culprit... Which in this case copy and paste to your forum root directory via FTP.
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c> Options -MultiViews RewriteEngine On RewriteBase /forum/ RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f RewriteRule .(jpeg|jpg|gif|png)$ /forum/public/404.php [NC,L] RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d RewriteRule . /forum/index.php [L] < /IfModule> This also can be found beneath Use .htaccess mod_rewrite question
    After resubmitting this file to the root come back to this tick yes and re save.
    Go back and refresh your board. Does it still work?
    If Yes then the issue is resolved.
    Another issue (rare)
    System Settings > System > Server Environment.
    Scroll down to Cookies
    Make sure Cookie Domain is written this way with the preceding (dot) example .testboard.com 
    Cookie Prefix should also be written this way -forum-
    Here as well just leaving out the dot or hash marks can make for a bad day.

    I think you are meaning 200x300 rather than 200+300?
