First of all, I think it really sucks that folks who don't have active licences (expired) can't post replies in IPS blogs and ask or comment on the stuff posted. Second, (I wanted to ask this in the IPS blog but couldn't), how do I renew any of my licences in the new system? I went to the Client Area but couldn't figure out how to renew any of the apps? Am I missing something?

Thanks.

Just pay the expired invoice, or if one doesn't exist, submit a ticket to have one generated for what you want to renew.

You have to re-purchase
$65 for the Gallery after all those years.

Really starting to think ....its time for something else
This is no way of treating a customer

I have a 'cancelled' blog license... Just click it, and on the right 'reactivate'... It only tries to charge me the standard renewal, not the full sale price...

I have the full suite of Board/Gallery/Blog paid up to July 2013. Now it shows both Gallery and Blog as cancelled.

Where did you hear this? If you purchased our software, we don't make you repurchase a brand new license simply to renew it. :blink:

I STRONGLY suggest anyone with questions about their license contact the account assistance department (accounts@invisionpower.com) to get clear and accurate answers. :) I fear posting your "but with my account..." type questions here are going to pull out inaccurate responses, such as the one above.

^^Aiwa, I am 110% sure there was no "Reactivate" link on the right 15 minutes ago when I was trying! Now it's there.
Weird..

If you purchased a suite when it was just Board+Blog+Gallery, then yes that is all you would get. We honor the terms of the license agreement at the time. If IP.Content wasn't even available then, surely you don't expect to get that application for free 5 years later? :unsure:

A mistake meant it wasn't showing for some people - should be sorted now :)

For future reference: Just take a quick moment to pause and ask before you jump to conclusions as you did earlier in this topic. It was just a mistake we weren't trying to make you pay anything again :) ... Posting things like that is dangerous as people will read it and just assume it's true when it's very much not.

So, in summary, IPS isn't a bunch of theives! :tongue: They are humans that can say whoops and fix an issue if you submit a ticket and tell them about it.

As flawless as Mark wishes he was....it's a big changeover and some loose ends may not have been caught prior to the updates. He's been tackling hiccups as they come up so far pretty quickly however. :)

maybe we should start a new topic: how to cure hiccups at IPS

for me, several small sips of water always does the trick ...
