    Desk: (Main PC is in tower on left) backup PC is sat under the monitor.


  2. AndyF added a post in a topic: What phone do you use?   

    Only a cheap / nasty basic phone for me , still it does the job.
  3. AndyF added a post in a topic: What type of computer is your daily driver?   

    Nothing terribly special here. Main PC:
    AMD Phenom II X6 3.4 / 8GB Ram / 2x 1TB Drives (Mirror) / Radeon HD5450 GFX Card (as I wanted a silent fanless card) / 24" Monitor / 7 Pro (tried 8 / 8.1 did not like it lol)
    Had it about 3 years now.
  4. AndyF added a post in a topic: MAMP Pro/localhost Error Uploading Images   

    Can you temporary disable ImageMagik (and choose GD) then try it again ? What error do you get this time ? As the current error appears to be biased towards IMagik...
  5. AndyF added a post in a topic: After Upgrade - Any clue what's happened?   

    You would change said details on the 34x installation before upgrading it (or move the 34x to the 'temp' location, update it then upgrade)
    I seem to recall reading yesterday iirc there's a script that could rectify this a rebuild that may be available. I cannot find the topic at the moment and limited connectivity limits my time online. Perhaps it may come with B6 when that appears. A member of the dev team will have to answer really.

    Mobile notifications persist until desktop skin used
    Source: [url=""][/url]
     [quote name="markymids" post="2505234" timestamp="1413834854"]
    Wanted to add this to the bug tracker but I can't see version 3.4.7 there.
    Since upgrading from 3.4.6 to 3.4.7 if I view any notifications on the mobile skin, they remain there until I've viewed the notifications on the desktop skin.
    It's annoying - I check the forum for reports etc more often on mobile than anything else, and I keep thinking I've had loads of reports when in fact they're notifications I've already read. :sad:

    I just realised I submitted this entry on the 13th August, this was actually the day I started one of my communities on IP.Board (in 2005) it was 2.0.x something from what I recall back then.
    Site is still going too even now, nine years later ( no, its not on 2.0.x still )

    Status update power setting still has a missing area
    I recall we fixed the /all and the quicknav a while back (I reported them)
    However its been noted that the popup card does not honour this power setting to disable status updates it seems, with them off it still showing the last status update.
    Source post [url=""]here[/url] , they are disabled via the usual su_enabled flag.

    Question / Answer Math Challenge Questions v
    A simple pack of twenty five math questions for the Question / Answer Challenge.
    These have been put together both to make them easy for humans but difficult for bots as both questions and answers are given in words only not any numerics. Certain variations 'forty' vs 'fourty' are also taken into account as well as three spelling variations of each answer: All capitals, all lower-case and first letter capitalized.
    Note to import this list you'll likely need to have Import/Export Spider List installed as this permits QA imports / exports.

    I wanted to take a couple of minutes to highlight my small contributions to the community although I hope they prove useful.

    These are two simple 'blank' images I made expanded out to the correct sizes for the logo (358x64) and meta image (208x70)

    The main reason was for anyone who did not have any software capable of dealing with .psd's as these are just simple .png images that any image editor should be able to cope with. The official GDK .psd will obviously provide a 'nicer' result however I wanted something that was very simple for everyone to be able to use too even if its just for a temporary logo while a 'nicer' one is being created.

    This is a simple package of nine different coloured 'highlight' bbcodes: Black, Blue, Cyan, Green, Magenta, Orange, Red, White, Yellow , these can be very useful for highlighting or drawing attention to a specific area of a post.

    This script allows you to import an InvisionFree database to then be upgraded to the latest IP.Board version. The reason this is required is the database dump usually provided when requested from IF does not include any 'CREATE' statements, it expects an already existent 1.3 database to be there and empty. This file circumvents this 'catch22' by providing the appropriate empty tables for you.

    I've taken a lot of time with the readme with a very detailed 'hand holding' slow step by step approach to ensure that new admins are capable of using it. I should point out official support will be able to assist with an IF 'import' but I wanted this for those who would like to "do it themselves"

    This I created after a support topic I noted quite a while back now, if by some reason all the IDM mime types have been lost you can simply use this to 'restore' them back to default which would be a lot quicker than manually entering them one by one. It does not restore the permissions for them ie "file" or "screenshot" however these are easily and quickly manually edited in as required.

    This is a quick way to restore the default emoticons. You can use the xml provided to replace them back to normal. Note you may have to adjust the /style_emoticon/default directory too. This is provided as the installer on a new installation does not use a normal xml for them, they are inserted via the installer usually hence the need for this file to restore them if required.

    Enjoy. :)

    There's no forced requirement to have them, although having them is a benefit to the author too as it may attract more sales as clients can see what they are buying, rather than "buying blind" :)
