  1. AndyF added a post in a topic: Disappointed In IPS 4   

    I think Pages will appeal to more people who were possibly slightly worried "where to start" with IP.Content... Having said that (in a positive way) IP.C did greatly improve with each new release (I started with it at a QA stage) and I think Pages is a further step towards user friendliness.
  2. AndyF added a post in a topic: [Missing] Prune/Mass Move   

    I too have seen 'accidents' with this feature.
    I thought about extra protection for it, but thinking again instead of how it was in 3x and 2x ie a global mod option, how about making it only available to those with ACP access and in a global mod group ?
    Another idea would be to request the users password I guess, although I am starting to think this should *only* be available in the ACP itself rather than appear on the front end...
  3. AndyF added a post in a topic: like this   

    ACP > Members > Settings > Reputation System
    You can adjust it there, each option shows a small image of the type selected.
  4. AndyF added a post in a topic: Paid Service for Upgrading   

    I imagine you could submit a ticket to request it the same as any other upgrade.
    Unsure if that is possible now as 4 is only semi supported at its RC stage as far as I'm aware, ie install and upgrade issues only.
  5. AndyF added a post in a topic: Copy, Rename or Relocate... Good Luck!   

    If its your wampserver on your own local machine then you can just drop to the Windows command line and do it.
    Create the new empty database first, then take a backup of the db to move. Lets say its called sitebackup.sql and the database is called newdb
    Now navigate to where your sql directory is (not essential but easier) and copy the db into it then:
    CD wamp CD bin
    CD mysql
    CD mysql5.6.17
    CD bin
    Now you can import it (I'm assuming no root pass on your local)
    mysql.exe -u root newdb < sitebackup.sql If you have a password its -u (username) -p (password)
    There is an example of this in my ' QA Lab: Converting and upgrading InvisionFree to IPS4 ' topic, on 'Step Three: Importing the database'

    How are you copying the database ? You're not copying the raw db files are you ? Would be best to backup and export / import via either phpmyadmin (if its a tiny db) or via command line or a tool such as bigdump perhaps.
    I think a 'change' script might be needed for this, I recall it being mentioned in a topic a week or so ago this might also assist.

  8. AndyF added a bug in Bug Tracker   

    [RC3] Pages: Incorrect message on closed records
    It took a few minutes to figure this out, as they appeared correct then incorrect. The 'issue' here is that when viewing a closed record, the message is unsuitable, its more an IP.D message:
    This file is now closed to further comments Thing is, you * only * see that if you do not have permission to post in a closed record, ie mod perms. Otherwise you see the usual " This is now closed for further comments"
    To duplicate this, I can get it to happen on here as well as my own install:
    1. Find a closed report or close a report (record) in here.
    2. As you'll be viewing with mod perms you'll see an appropriate message with the reply box (no issue with that)
    3. Either view as a standard client / member or as a guest as I see guests can view this and you'll see the message has changed to " This file is now closed to further comments"

  9. AndyF added an answer to a question: What are the largest websites using IP Suite?   

    Neowin too is quite large.
  10. AndyF added a comment: Blog RSS has no limit   

    Power setting maybe ? Or set at max of 100 (if nothing is specified)
  11. AndyF added a post in a topic: issues with login  
  12. AndyF added a post in a topic: IPB 4 Website gone down   

    That's 128mb which should be sufficient.
    Perhaps its caught in an infinite loop (which would run until exec time or memory ran out)
    Its worth submitting a ticket so a tech can take a look at this I suspect. Does your admin panel still function ? (I'd expect so)
  13. AndyF added a post in a topic: RC3?   

    Upgraded (localhost dev board). Quick and painless.
  14. AndyF added a post in a topic: Admin Account Lock   

    Its similar to how it was on 3.x as well.
    You can run a query to remove the lock if its required in a hurry.
    I think if you switch to email login, it will be harder for someone to guess it as they'll need to know the email rather than display/user name...
  15. AndyF added a post in a topic: Profanity Filter
    Might of been fixed in the next release by the looks of that as it was re-investigated.

    Hey Andy, I tried to reach out and help Ryan with his situation. he's using godaddy....which I believe uses some proprietary cpanel vs the standard cpanel most host use. We got the files and stuff moving over but is there any particular reason why it would have his url listed twice.

    I don't think it has anything to do with propagation though. Originally before he changed the configurations, it was displaying properly but when he clicked a link it would redirect him back to the normal url without the forums domain. After he changed the configurations, it has caused him to have those issues.

    Andy wonders why post counts dropped substantially, not that it matters really just curious...
