You can currently download 347 or 4. , I expect it will stay that way for quite a while as (from what I recall) IPS would allow downloads of all previous versions provided they were officially supported and given that 34x is likely to remain in support for quite a while I can see it will remain available for that time too. In regards to the converter, I would expect to see an IPS4 converter appear soon too, although you can for the moment convert your board to 347 then upgrade after if you wish.
I'm not sure it counts as a product as such as its a 'service addon' , I've asked for clarification as I sort of feel it is the 225 to renew it, as priority / premium support clients gain extra's as per the listing on the main page.
If its hidden (and I would guess it still is there just out of sight) then the data in Followed Content should not appear if you do not have permission to view it. Its a bit like say a topic being moved somewhere "out of sight" after you've followed it but you still see it in your Followed Content, should not.
Hello. You only *need* the database that's the only really essential element. Bear in mind the filesystem contains items such as profile pictures / post attachments / gallery images / download submissions (as appropriate) so without any files you'll not have these.
Hello, If memory serves me correctly you'll usually receive another email when the community is installed. You can check that by visiting the URL you chose during initial sign up to see if the site is up and operational yet.
Hello, As Rhett has indicated the only legal way is to purchase it. The ;ast 'free' versions were the 1.x series and they were EOL many many years ago. If the cost of a self hosted licence is too much then please consider a 'Community In The Cloud' option as you can pay this monthly and the hosting is included, leaving you free to simply run your community.
There should be a check to stop this, I've not looked at the code but it should have a conditional both in the skin and in the code (if they attempt to try it via a direct URL) basically if the member has ACP access they cannot be 'flagged' as a spammer.
