Thanks, I appreciate knowing that IP4 will be released sometime "this year." @.Ian - the reason why it's important is that V4 is, by all accounts, a massive rewrite of IP's systems, including the front-end design theming system, the back-end administration, and the database schemas itself (at least, this is what has been discussed on Big Board Admin forums).
I'd rather not invest a substantial amount of time on a platform that will require me to invest even more time later on; I'd rather wait until the next version comes out and then spend time developing on that platform, if that makes sense.
I am looking to purchase an IPSuite license(s), but I'd obviously like to hold off until version 4.0 is released, given the substantial rewrite that has been taking place. Is there a timeline for release that I can be planning on for my clients?
Thanks for the reply. I understand that Subscriptions transfer fine - but does that also mean that recurring payments sent to PayPal for subscriptions previously created in vB will continue to be updated in IPB?
After years of considering a move to IPS, our Big Board is crossing off one of the final items on our checklist. Can you please help answer this question?
Premise: On our vBulletin 3.8.x forum, we have a number of Paid Subscriptions, recurring payments handled by PayPal and the Payments API at payments.php; thousands of our members have long-standing recurring subscriptions and each time a payment is made, the system updates their subscription with a new expiration date reflecting that payment. Missed payments, or cancellations, result in automatic cancellations. I understand the IP.Nexus offers much of the same functionality.
Question: Is there currently a working importer that will (a) successfully import all vBulletin 3.8.x paid subscriptions; and (b) ensure uninterrupted, continuous recognition of payments sent via the Payments API and other payments calls from PayPal?
Please let me know if this question doesn't make sense. For us, this is the last real major barrier in our potential move over to IPS.
