when going to the IPS client area it seems like a click-a-thon this process need a bit of work
It's the download manager that IPS sells and is using the option to require someone to agree to a disclaimer before downloading. Being able to 'add to queue' wouldn't be a bad idea to add to IPD, then when someone is going to download, have it show a disclaimer with a list of the relevant packages associated with that disclaimer. On here, one disclaimer for all products. For other sites, could have a few pages of disclaimers to answer to, but once down, download page of all products they should queued (and agreed for). That'd be a request to put in the IPD feedback forum.
And again the files downloaded are decompressed in a folder "board" when I wasn't downloading a 'board' application. So i have just downloaded the blog and the gallery and yet in my download folder it reads board-2 and board-3 because i already had a board folder in there. I have asked many times before but could the folder be named the same as the ZIP file such as app_blog_2_6_0
You should be able to select for each package to use existing folders. As far as I know, it's done this way so that you can extract all the files and then go into one folder, make any changes and then upload everyone at one time, instead of having to go into multiple folders to do the uploads. To me it seems easier that way, though I don't do it that way (I have shell access so I upload the compressed files, then extract and juggle directly on the server instead of uploading files one-at-a-time).
It would be fine if the interstitial pages had more useful information such as release date or change log etc.
A lot of people have been asking for this for many months. Helps to know if you have the latest copy of the newest version of a file. I could download the latest version of IP.Board on the day it's released and then a day before the next release and end up with two files that are different. So seeing the 'last updated' information is something a lot of people would appreciate.
