Hello, I am looking to purchase my own today! I do have a question though. Would I be able to import my Demo to full mode if I choose? As of now, I don't have a subscription yet, but think I may want to fool around a little with it first. I was just wondering if I could use my existing that I already have made progress with on the demo to full mode, or would I have to start from scratch?

As far as I'm aware due to the way the demo's are constructed on the demo server it will not be possible to transfer any data out of them to a live community.

Hello and thank you for your quick response. I can see that this will be a long time host for my community already.
I hope I am allowed to ask another question in the same thread so here it goes.

As of right now, I will be footing the bill of this for the community, but in the process of maybe a year, I will be expanding (I hope) and will be open to the idea of a donation button. I have seen these on other IP powered boards.

My question is this.
Is this function included into the bundle? The ability to click on a link and have a donation to PayPal or whatnot work ? Or is it part of a app I have to pay for. Here is an example of what I want.
You will see on the right hand side the donation area, that has the link and current donations.

Thank you in advance for your replies. And if this is another app or package I need to buy, what would that be. Thank you again.

You can go one of two routes:

1) You can simply go to PayPal and generate the appropriate "donate" button HTML, and then insert it into your skin templates

2) If you purchase IP.Nexus, it features a powerful donations manager you can utilize instead (you can put in goals, have multiple donation runs, and so on).

There are few donations applications that you can find on the Marketplace, there is also a great one, called "Donation Tracker" it's great with a variety of advanced settings :)

Totally recommend it!
