  1. AndyF added a comment: [RC6] Blog issues   

    The 'group Blog' issue aka "guest" is present on this site too.
  2. AndyF added a post in a topic: Support Team   

    You could do it with a source file edit I'm sure (not looked) although that would be a peer to peer type question rather than official...

    @John, for clarification I'm not staff I'm a paying client just like yourself. Perhaps I misread your reply but I sort of read it as though you suspect I am part of IPS.
  4. AndyF added a post in a topic: Support Team   

    I've never been a dev. Support / MP Moderator etc but never a developer.
    With regard to the documentation it can sometimes be difficult to know what area's need documenting and how far to go with it for example creating a category etc. It would be best to compile a list of area's you feel are lacking or what needs more clarification etc, perhaps with a new topic. That way IPS can expand on or write new sections to cover these areas.

    There is some documentation here and its been added to quite frequently.
  6. AndyF added a comment: Security - index.html in subfolders   

    I did mention this quite a while back and the answer was to simply use .htaccess (which I had already done) , I was concerned it might of been a bug though.
    If you do not know how to: Add Options -Indexes to your .htaccess file it should hide them.

    RC6 Core Install
    As its possible to just download Core only (for instance perhaps using Core and a third party app) , however its not possible to install just Core on its own. The 'Apps to install' dropdown box shows an empty entry:

    Attempting to continue without selecting anything results in an EX0:

    Although I guess this is correct, I think it should not throw this "too generic" type error message. Ideally one of the following should happen:
    1. You should be forced to choose an app or it should not allow you to proceed past that point, a suitable error might be "You must choose a default application to continue" or suchlike.
    2. Allow it to proceed, possibly with a warning about there not being a default application. I can sort of see situations where this might be useful as you may wish to install apps later (I realise only the ACP would function until such time however)
    (1) Is more sensible but (2) does offer greater flexibility however I guess.

    I meant the Feature Plan page specifically.
  9. AndyF added a post in a topic: Where is 'Merge member's concurrent posts'   

    From what I recall it was removed as it could cause confusion sometimes. I think the solution for the moment is to use flood control though.
  10. AndyF added a post in a topic: Feature Plan and Open Discussions   

    I thought about this too, perhaps a single topic for each 'item' although I can see the disadvantage of this too as it would easily be derailed or go off topic with non-relevant posts in it.
  11. AndyF added a post in a topic: Current versions   

    ​Not that I'm aware since it changed slightly. You could sometimes click the 'previous versions' link to (for instance) download 345 etc.
  12. AndyF added a post in a topic: Testing IPB 4.0 Blogs   

    From what I recall the reason they were restricted in the first place was mainly spam and silly entries.
    However it does make logical sense to allow Contributor (maybe Clients) to use them too I guess in some ways.
  13. AndyF added a post in a topic: Current versions   

    Currently it is a choice between 347 and 4 RC5 when you choose what version to download.
  14. AndyF added a comment: [RC4] Upgrader stuck with phantom UTF8 conversion   

    Yes its fine now.
  15. AndyF added a bug in Bug Tracker   

    [RC4] Upgrader stuck with phantom UTF8 conversion
    I thought I'd try a different upgrade, a different test board running 347 to 4.
    Upon visiting the upgrader I'm prompted to run the UTF8 conversion:

    Problem is they are already:

    Using the tools to double check:

    The option after this takes me back to /admin/upgrade where it then demands they are converted etc etc
    I've not yet tried just chopping that out to bypass it to see what happens. I've done a fair few upgrade tests and this is the only one that's fallen over at this stage for some reason.
    Bear in mind this is a localhost board (its partly remnants of one of my MP test boards) so its been around a while...

    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...
