AndyF's Activity

  1. AndyF added a post in a topic: Setting to allow image attachments?   

    OK edit a group via Members > Groups >
    On the 'Content' tab, ensure that 'Can upload files' is enabled ie its green. Note this is not the same as the messages setting on the Social tab.
    Repeat for other groups as required.
  2. AndyF added a post in a topic: Banning IP Address from Posting   

    ​Its not that bad
    If you are having any issues working out how to do xyz etc simply post and someone will be able to point you in the right direction.
  3. AndyF added a post in a topic: Setting to allow image attachments?   

    You have no upload permissions going from the screenshot.
    To fix go to ACP > Forums and on the right hand side of the forum in question, choose 'Permissions' from the dropdown on the right. Ensure you check 'upload' for the group(s) who are permitted to upload.
    Note: You'll likely want to check 'download' for them as well (and maybe other groups) as for images 'download' means 'can view'
  4. AndyF added a post in a topic: Banning IP Address from Posting   

    Not without a modification no. If you ban an IP its banned from anything on the board they only see the "you are banned" type error message.
    However it does not sound *that* difficult to possibly work around it. You may wish to post in Modification Requests about this.
  5. AndyF added a post in a topic: Per-forum rules   

    ​You're welcome. It is a bit 'out of sight' unless you know about it I'll admit but I guess its not used that often.
  6. AndyF added a post in a topic: Can't 'undo' the password protection on root   

    You have pass protected the webroot by the looks of it.
    Look in the public_html directory for a htpass file or suchlike and remove it. You cannot do this in your ACP, you have to do it in the file system.
    If you're not sure just submit a ticket in the Client Area and a support tech will be able to assist.
    Client Area
  7. AndyF added a post in a topic: Replies going to hidden?   

    That's normal for the Presales area. All replies (not new topics) are under moderation queue until a member of staff can review and approve them. This is simply so that prospective clients get accurate information.
  8. AndyF added a post in a topic: Location of Support Ticket Area?   

    I've asked to see if we can have a link added to the header for it.
  9. AndyF added a post in a topic: Posts with links failing after move from Windows to Linux   

    Is it a shared or VPS/Dedi ?
    Can you see anything in the apache logs ?
  10. AndyF added a post in a topic: Urgent help needed - Badwordfilter   

    You're welcome.
    No I don't (think) it will effect the title's but you can easily just manually edit those as you say.
  11. AndyF added a post in a topic: Urgent help needed - Badwordfilter   

    Do not worry it does not delete any data ( ! ) its just the cached copies of the posts.
    I bet a new post made now after you made the badword filter change would work OK, its just the cached ones will not be effected until you clear the cache (or it eventually clears itself)
  12. AndyF added a post in a topic: Upgrades not bringing across avatars   

    Has the path (the upload path) been set correctly before you did the upgrade ?
    Doing a 'real' upgrade it should be OK as the path would be the same but if you mirror your live board to another directory it will be different. The way to 'test' this is to use a complete functioning copy of the live board ie get 347 'alive' on the test URL and verify via Settings > General Config that the upload path is correct (check the suggestion as its right 99% of the time)
    Once that's OK then do the upgrade.
  13. AndyF added a post in a topic: Urgent help needed - Badwordfilter   

    The posts might be cached so it will not effect them. To check and fix this go to Cache Management on the System tab and delete the cached posts at the top of the page.
    Now view a post / topic of that member again, has it this time 'changed' ?
  14. AndyF added a post in a topic: vBulletin 3.8 to IP.Board 2.3.6 Converters   

    It *is* possible as the structure is not likely changed between 36 and 38 however you will need the file to do this, there is no other easy practical way. I've not seen it for a few years certainly not since the 2x series became EOL.
  15. AndyF added a post in a topic: Any large community in the cloud clients?   

    There are larger or custom packages usually available if required too. It may be worthwhile submitting a ticket to sales to speak to a sales tech about any specific requirements etc, I'm sure you can be accommodated with ease however large the community.

    Andy wonders why post counts dropped substantially, not that it matters really just curious...
