  1. 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...
  2. 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.
  3. AndyF added a post in a topic: IPS4 Demo   

    Hello,
    Thank you for your interest in IPS4.
    I would expect the official demo to be updated to this version shortly after its release as it is still currently at a beta stage. Existing clients can however download a beta (similar to as you see here) for testing if they wish.
    In regards testing 'as is' it is as you see here, you are obviously welcome to use the 'Testing' forum to make test posts / polls etc.
  4. AndyF added a post in a topic: Kinda questionable IPB   

    I've not seen the message since a very early build so I'm unsure if its changed.
    Having said that, as it seems some are unhappy with it on the "front end" how about a small compromise ?
    Keep it on the front end but allow it to be minimized or dismissed. In either case it should then always re-appear / be expanded upon each new session / login. That way its not intrusive but its also not permanently out of sight either.
    Just a random idea to try to find a compromise to keep everyone happy.
  5. AndyF added a post in a topic: Compliments to IPS Support team   

    Agree. Its always nice when someone takes time to post positive feedback and its always nice to read too.
  6. AndyF added a post in a topic: Upgrade from 3.4.3 to 4.0.0.b4 possible?   

    As far as I know it should work with any 3.x version. Special measures are required for those upgrading from 2.x or 1.x (rare I guess though) , having said that it may be easier to do a quick 3x to 347 upgrade first if in any doubt.
  7. AndyF added a post in a topic: System scheduler on IPS4?   

    I made a suggestion a while ago it was a bit hidden, if you search for task or cron it should bring up an advanced config link which will take you to the task manager / scheduler. This was added in B4 iirc.
  8. AndyF added a post in a topic: address of server protocol   

    You're welcome.

    Your host may have tutorials / guides available to assist.
    Generally you might find you do not need sftp. If your site was www.example.com, for the host just enter site.com , the username / password are the FTP ones provided by your host. Try leaving the port box empty at this stage too, FileZilla will attempt in most cases to fill this in for you.
  10. AndyF added a post in a topic: address of server protocol   

    These are FTP details ? It would be best to ask your host what to use if you are not sure. They are (sometimes) the same as your web control panel (Cpanel etc) but not always.

    You're welcome.
    No, they do not need to say that. The only requirement really is the copyright in the footer area. I think you may have seen a 'hosted' community which may have a url such as sitename.invisionzone.com or suchlike ? , A 'hosted' community initially comes with a URL such as that however you can very easily use your own domain name so its not possible to tell if its 'IPS Hosted' or not. This is not something to be concerned about.
    Seasons Greets to you too. *inserts appropriate seasonal smilie*

    You're welcome.
    Yes I do prefer it here although I've not really used the 'other' as anything other than a user or occasional moderator rather than administrator.
    I note from your join date you're new so I should point out I was a Marketplace Moderator here for about six maybe seven years and also did a period of being official support staff answering and solving client issues in the Client Area too.
    EDIT... Regarding help, we did have a 3rd party dev database etc but that's on hold now we upgraded to 4x here. I would suggest asking in the mod request forum for assistance if you wanted to hire someone or just ask for specifics > http://community.invisionpower.com/forum/420-request-modifications/ about a conversion etc, if you wanted it doing via a third party that is. :)

    You're welcome.
    I don;t think the converters have been upgraded to 4x yet, although as its still in beta its not officially supported. So you'd 'convert' to 347 (supported) and then upgrade to 4x if / when you wanted to, once it comes out of beta. You can actually upgrade 34x to 4x now although as mentioned its not supported until its out of beta.
    I would suggest a 'test run' if possible using a backup, nothing is difficult in 95% of cases however having a test run on a copy/mirror of your live data will let you see how the conversion process works and what cleanup is required afterwards etc, usually the converter will tell you what needs doing (can just be a simple case of running some built in ACP tools ie resync forum/topics etc) but you would likely want to spend a few minutes checking group and forum permissions anyway.

    Ah that may help. I've requested your topic be moved to the Presales forum where you are likely to get a more definitive answer on this. Going "around the houses" (so to speak) via another software would be one way although if it can be converted directly I would naturally recommend that as its far easier and less messy as IPS converters are very easy to use. I'm merely thinking here of you having issues with Impex etc if you did go that "around the houses" route.

    Hello,
    I do not see it listed on the Migrate page, however that's not to say it could not be done either by IPS themselves or possibly via a third party coder.
