  1. AndyF added a comment: [RC6] Delete Content doesn't delete pms.   

    There used to be an option on 3x to delete all their PM's, I would of thought that either the new 'Delete Content' would do that or perhaps (although this is a sort of suggestion) a new button on that management page to delete all their PM content.

    ​Would be best to post it as a feedback item here
  3. AndyF added a bug in Bug Tracker   

    RC6 Editing Blog
    The ACP side for editing a Blog appears to be broken.
    ACP > Community > Blogs > Blogs >
    Upon clicking edit on a Blog listed here a 2S100/1 error is shown instead (Page does not exist)
    The link *looks* OK though, ie:app=blog&module=blogs&controller=blog&do=edit&id=1

    Try this link
    Not 100% sure that's what you're after though.
  6. AndyF added a post in a topic: Blog and Forum Interaction   

    Hello,
    With 34x you can have a 'Blog This' option under a post where the post can be added as a Blog entry. I belive this is being added to 4x possibly.
    In regard to sharing you could always use RSS export and imports to 'copy' entries between Blog entries and forum topics.
  7. AndyF added a post in a topic: Some questions.   

    Hello,
    If you do not renew you lose access to download and submit support tickets. If you have a 'hosted' community ie Community In The Cloud then that will not function as that is hosted by IPS. If you have your own hosting then your board will carry on as normal. You will also lose the Spam Service and Chat if you let your licence expire though.
    To renew you do not usually have to pay any 'catch up' fee, you simply ask for an invoice and pay the renew fee and that's that.
    There are a lot of free apps/hooks in the Marketplace here you can use. Bear in mind you cannot distribute them yourself without permission from the author(s)
    Nexus is a commercial application from IPS and you cannot use a version you downloaded 'elsewhere'
  8. AndyF added a post in a topic: Upgrade Old Version of Software   

    Hello,
    In the majority of cases you can simply pay the renew fee instead of a full 'new' purchase price to regain access. There are a few (but rare) exceptions to this such as unconverted legacy standard licences that had not been renewed but as I say that's quite rare.
    If you are able to please open a ticket in the Client Area to Accounts Assistance who will be able to lookup your licence specifics and if necessary generate an appropriate invoice for you.
  9. AndyF added a post in a topic: Message on forced login   

    This topic got me thinking.
    Comparing 3.x and 4.x "force login" screens, it does look a little sparse. I was merely thinking perhaps a simple message as to why you're being shown a login page...
    Quick pics to illustrate:

    3x states clearly why the login screen is being shown

    4x although the addition of the 'register' link is helpful there's no real explanation as to why you see this page. A simple change of message or addition here could go a long way I think...
  10. AndyF added a post in a topic: Projects   

    Hello,
    That's done with Pages (formerly IP.Content)
  11. AndyF added a post in a topic: BBCodes don't work   

    If you login to your admin panel are any background tasks (there's a box you cannot miss it) running ? Rebuilding data is part of the processes.
  12. AndyF added a comment: [RC6] Blog issues   

    The 'group Blog' issue aka "guest" is present on this site too.
  13. 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...
  14. AndyF added a post in a topic: Support Team   

    @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.
  15. 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.

    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. community.invision.power.com/community.invisionpower.com


    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.
