  1. Woodsman added a comment: IPB4 Installing chat   

    A simple work around....

    I downloaded the 4.0 version and saw chat was not included in the applications.

    I download a 2nd copy toggling off all the applications with the exception of chat.

    I then copied this copy of the download into the 4.0 original set of files. (Now Chat appears in the application directory)

    I then copied this new set of files to my 3.4.7 upgrade. Started the upgrade and completed with no errors.

    Went to new upgrade site, All working including chat....

    The only issue is it is on my local and I really hate talking to myself.... Even More afraid of the answers I may get. Like "This Topic has been Closed!"

    ​Yes I should have said something on how to remove any lanuage packs and keeping the default. Sorry about that!
    Setting up a 3.4.7 and earlier yes there are 3 areas where URL's that need to be modified to point to the correct uploads path.  The 1st is found in System - System Settings - General configuration. There are 2 elements that need to be changed. Path to 'upload' directory and Upload URL These apply also to the blog and gallery setting if you have them. The both of these are found here. System - System Settings - IPS APPS.

    ​I have been using this method of upgradeing testboards from the previews (pre-beta) to now with no issues.... These same rules should apply to the final.

    ​So lets Spam unrelated topics because you can't find what you are looking for.... Makes perfect sense to me.
    And if Marcher's reply didn't help try this.

    ​Which is also a good point... ‌@Ocean West so far I would say I am one of the few lucky ones who have not needed that option (((YET))). But now that I said it... (((Jinx))). Watch now it will happen sure as the sun will rise in the morning...

    ​Blizzard does have the same TOS I have an account here. Ryan is correct. I'd think twice on this one. I  don't think you are going to get very many takers jumping on this one.
  8. Woodsman added a post in a topic: Followers Are Superior To Friends   

    ​@CheersnGears Thank you.
    This is where I was heading until I let my personal views over ride my train of thought.... There are more than a few here that @Lindy speaks of that would rather keep quiet and not take a chance getting mocked or upsetting the apple cart where they have posted their preferences in other topics. Instead they got the "Show Me a reason" line from non IPS personnel. And in other cases  their views were called "Rants" So they backed down. But those I got the biggest kick out of were those who turned when the boat started to rock a little. Stopping here personal views are trying to take over again.
    As far as Development goes Friends feature was already in place there was nothing to add. And again worked awesome for those who knew how to make it work. For those who didn't take the time to understand it, sure it was added bloat. Now you have something new called Followers not even nearly the same in in context or functionality let alone security. What may be great for every 10 people may be a downfall for the next 2 or 3.... Personally I think those odds suck crab water.
     Damn here I am thinking personal gain.

    ​I get the same in Fire Fox.... In IE the pages just time out giving me the "Page Can't be found" page... This has been going on the last 2 or so weeks...
  10. Woodsman added a post in a topic: My Cable Provider finally admits a problem...   

    This is where it is nice for me at the moment. One of the TWC offices is one block behind me as the crow flies. When I would lose internet I also lost my phone.... It got to the point where now they jump when they see me coming. Though I try to keep things quiet there are always other customers standing around that overhear whats going on.... TWC don't like that part. Now they have me on 2 modems. 1 for internet and the other for phone service.
  11. Woodsman added a post in a topic: My Cable Provider finally admits a problem...   

    Good for you!
    Had simular issues a few years ago with AT&T Uverse.... Rain and wind would knock everything out.... Kept telling them it was aerial and the still insisted on looking at my interface, inside wiring and their interface up at my driveway. Finally after blowing a gasket on one of their supervisors they sent a team out with a line supervisor... I told her to quit looking for the problem in the house or any other contained unit the issue is Aerial. Here again I blew... Told her my credentials as an electrician and hers and the rest of their theory didn't cut the mustard.... Finally she sent a guy up to the boot that I said was the problem. She was hell bent to prove me wrong. Well 3 cans of hornet spray later the line tech came down to have her order a new block. The one in the boot had been destroyed. They temped in what they could at that point and the following week they were up replacing everyones line that came from that boot that had no issues.... But like you they kept replacing crap and I kept telling them to quit wasting my time.... Go to the boot.... Again Key Words Rain and Wind. Come to think of it. I don't think I was the one eating crow that day.... Now I am having issues with my cable provider.... They also have a cable mess to figure out with business and residential getting mixed up... So they say. Personally I think it is an overload. To many subscribers sharing one line.

    ​A farmrer up north may have agreed with you 2 years ago when I went to pass him..... snapped the crank clean right behind the harmonic ballancer.... Not a pretty site.... Front journal was sitting here... here... and there on the road... Had a mechanic up there find and replace the engine.... But after Dennis's uncle dropped the pan to make sure it was a good one. No crud, no grime but most of all no metal or weak chevy parts....

    ​I hate to admit it but I think I like this as well. And hell, ‌@superj707 be real careful here... I may start to like you and that ain't easy to say out loud for a grumpy orn'ry old man like me... (((Was easy to type though)))
    BTW Tell ‌@Lindy that I need to add rotate my tires to that list....

    ​Will now be hunting ‌@Lindy now with my Ram.... right after I rebuild the transmission, replace the cooler, change the oil, Wash & wax and, and, and
  15. Woodsman added a post in a topic: Shirley we'll have a release soon?   

    I have been getting slow reaction and time outs as well. But upon other investigation and factors involved with other websites related to forums as well as non related. My personal issues seem to occure at certain times of the day and days of the week. The issues I experience have been brought to my cable provider. It seems they have a few business and residential lines flipped. Now could this be another possibility for some? This would depend on a single site vs the multiple. Another thing to concsider if you are a cable subscriber is time of day and community in which you live because that also will factor in as load. Another way to test this is to take speed tests using a few different test sites durring your good, better and bad times of the day or week. If they show any consistancy again report it to your cable provider...
