    If you have not purchased IP.Content (CMS) or Nexus (Commerce) You will  not see them nor be able to download them as a test.
    If you have then they are in your Clients Area under your current active Suite License.

    Local IPS4 Beta 4 Login as 404 error
     After a test upgrade on my local all seems to have installed OK.
    Log in with correct Display name and password I get this 404 error.
    I can log into the ACP just fine no issue.
    Changed Login from Display to Display or Email. Go back to front end. Tried both getting same error.
    Clicked the Site tab in the ACP ... Brings me to the front page again as a visitor. Attempt to log in, Again the 404 error.
    Same in FF, IE11 and Chrome

    While in your ACP Go to Look & Feel - Skin you want to edit - Css tab - ipb_styles.css - under #branding find #logo.
    #logo { display: inline; }
    Change to:
    #logo { text-align: center; }
  6. Woodsman added a post in a topic: Allow users to swtich between exciting secondry groups as primary   

    I am not disagreeing with either of you. Secondary groups could have other useful purposes in the future. We as the administrators can create groups as we deem them necessary for example the group + Clients here on IPS is not an out of the box group setting. Special Interests would have a value as a secondary group down the road, the same could apply for further group setting in the future (Members Choice) where members can pick and choose their secondary group. This could be a valuable feature, but the question here is why can't he switch between Primary and Secondary like VB. At present Secondary groups are a Administrator view/choose only.
    And if memory serves me well, this was a Hot Topic back in 2.2.x, 2.3.X days Where Members (Administrators) were begging for a secondary group just for administrative only purposes implemented in 3.0.
  7. Woodsman added a post in a topic: Friendly URL's   

    Go into the ACP - System - Search Engine Optimization - Rewrite URLs and turn it off... Refresh your browser and try again.
    If this works your .htaccess file is poorly written.
    Via your FTP client...
    Replace the content of your forum root .htaccess file with this
    and reset the Rewrite URLs back to on.
    Are you still able to view your content?
    If so you are good to go...
    But as an added note being this is a test site anyway the search engine optimization feature are not relevant anyway so you can actually leave the Rewrite URLs turned off.
  8. Woodsman added a post in a topic: Allow users to swtich between exciting secondry groups as primary   

    The secondary group is designed for the administrators and their view only. It was never intended for public view.
    I can name off a few good reasons to keep the secondary group as admin view only.
    The biggest most important would be
    (1.)security vulnerability.
    (2.) Most people (admins) will add a member in a secondary group for a test run to see if that member is up to the challenge of handling simple or complex duties. If not no harm done because they will never be seen on the front end as being demoted.
    (3.) Dependability, Fairness and Honesty. Not just with the board duties and product line but membership as well. Will he be able to do his duties first over letting a member slide on destructive  activities or piracy.
    (4.) Animosity among the ranks. as in special treatment doing the same duties. With the secondary as it is you as the Administrator can setup different moderator groups some with other functions an permissions than the normal group where as far as front end view they appear the same. Also keeping the arrogant member from pushing his title in your face.
    ***And lets not forget Administrative choice. The Admin picks and chooses who makes it to a secondary group not the membership.***

    This may help explain.
  10. Woodsman added a post in a topic: Changing the licence subfolder for test site   

    ​Yes for the first test (upgrade) suite but if you attempt to create a 2nd (or more) as in a backup to test other coding in order to prevent total damage to the first test site it is not allowed.
    http://localhost/kmg-test-1 will install with no issue using your "license key-TESTINSTALL"
    but if I were to create a 2nd at
    this is not allowed as you can with 3.4.7 and earlier it will fail.
    On another note what I don't like about Wamp  or Xampp they both have to be added into the Windows firewall.... being a local environment this one still blows me away even though the Wamp virtual server is offline.
  11. Woodsman added a post in a topic: Friendly url work good?   

    Give this one a try. I think it will work better for you.
    This should fix the double forum issue as well as hiding the index.php? from human view.
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
     Options -MultiViews
     RewriteEngine On
     RewriteBase /
     RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
     RewriteRule \.(jpeg|jpg|gif|png)$ /public/404.php [NC,L]
     RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
     RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
     RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
     On a local host environment go to Search Engine Optimization and turn off Rewrite URL's this causes huge 404 page errors in a local environment. Especially if you are using Wamp's latest version like I am...
  12. Woodsman added a post in a topic: Changing the licence subfolder for test site   

    ​On a live domain install internet connected 1 license equals 1 live board and 1 test board off line to the public this true as we all know, no ands ifs or buts about it and I understand IPS's stand on this and I completely agree on their stand, but as far as a localhost Wamp / Xamp environment where it is offline and can only be used or viewed by the developer / designer this is creating an issue while setting up multiple scenarios in development and design. For years we have been doing it this way since as far back as the 1.3 days. This was even brought up in an article around 3.0 - 3.0.5 by an ex staff member / developer while building applications mods and hooks while having a different board for each. I have always ran 3-4 boards while in skin design where I could drop any form of code change to test the out come without total destruction of a primary test board or skin design.
    At present I have no way of doing this even on my local where according to IPS's stand is not considered. But in fact it is. You cannot create a multiple boards due to license call out verifier telling you that you are not allowed because this license is already active...

    This is not an IPS related issue forcing this, but an .htaccess issue for one and/or server settings for another. The .htaccess example I will show here, Server settings at a later time if needed.
    1st, Your .htaccess example: has an issue.
    <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]
    Here you are pointing to "forum" twice.
    The first in line 4 RewriteBase/forum/ (which is correct)
    The 2nd in line 10 RewriteRule ./forum/index.php[L] (This is where you are getting the 2nd forum from)
    Where you can use this example:
    <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 . /index.php [L]
    This example will eliminate the 2nd forum issue.
    As a precaution I would save your original to a clipboard just in case it turns out to be a server setting issue.

    Give 150x200 a shot and see if that will do it for you. This will bring you 50px narrower in width and 50px shorter in height.
    If this makes the images to small then you can try 175x225 still keeping the image proportional.
  15. Woodsman added a post in a topic: Followers - Friends   

    I guess my point in this is this...
    I don't take a back seat to anyone. This is why became a member/client of IPS. Back in the day even when they (IPS) were just getting started we all knew we were getting into something awesome where all others were only 2nd best.
    Twitter, Facebook and the others in my mind are just riding on the Jet stream IPS has created.
