No to hijack your thread, Oz, but I have to say I am very pleased with the service I have received from IPS staff. I certainly haven't seen it degrade.
Granted, I don't use IP.Chat - nor will I ever. (Nothing against their chat. I just figure if people want to chat, they can go elsewhere. I run an online forum. They can post there if they have something to say.) But, concerning any issues I have had come up, IPS staff has been on the ball. I'm glad to be able to help support the team, even though I am only a two license holder.
I am having issues with my banners not showing on the footer, although I have it enabled and the ads set to do so. They used to, but I just noticed they don't now. Perhaps at the last upgrade? I don't know. Anyway, I can't sort out why they are not working. Can you take a look, please? I am a long time purchaser of this mod. It's been great!
I have cleared my cache, and have done tons of things that I knew had nothing to do with it.
As I have stated, the only way I can continually access the site currently, is if I go through my proxy server. When I set Firefox to automatically sort it, I can load only one page. That's it - one. Anything after simply will not load.
Now, where did I put that "I don't know" smiley? :)
When I visit this forum using Firefox (I have not tried other browsers), I notice the first page loads fine, regardless which page I load. However, any IPS page I attempt to visit afterward will not load. This, to my knowledge, is the only site I am having these issues with.
Now, while visiting the site through my proxy server, it loads fine. I can visit any number of pages I wish, on this site. It is only when I am going through the default settings on Firefox, that this occurs. By the way, I recently updated Firefox, by the way, to v17.0.1. This problem did not occur before the upgrade.
Would it be possible for you to add a tools tab, and an option to truncate (empty) the " _sfs_blocked " table? I just realized I had 163 pages of blocked attempts at registering. I went in and emptied the table, rather than going through and deleting all entries one page at a time.
Just a thought.
A second issue that I just noticed. If I do NOT select any blocked items, but click "Remove Selected", the following error comes up:
(I found it by accidentally clicking on "remove selected" without selecting any listed entries.)
Warning: implode() [function.implode]: Invalid arguments passed in /home/my_username/public_html/ipb/admin_folder_name/applications_addon/other/sfs/modules_admin/settings/blockedlist.php on line 134
Well, I pay a considerable amount of money to IPS already, and do so every year. My intention was to see a basic running version that I could modify myself, first. I have no problems paying the $50 USD if it what I need.
Touché. I wasn't thinking at the time I actually posted the topic. But, I am looking for a basic version that I can start fresh with, to have full admin access rights to.
