    I too am very eager and excited for it. I've been wanting something like this for a very long time. I hope it's as good as it sounds.

    Only problem I've ever had with Filezilla that I can recall was the sourceforge crap. But since they opted into that I'm sure they won't be moving to github any time soon. :\

    I wonder if it's changing the member's group.

    An absolutely fantastic product, used the one from the 3.x series and it worked perfectly. Once again using this on IPS4 and plan to look into the paid version. This is a very beneficial product that helps your community say thank you and contribute a little something back when they can.

    htaccess for IPS Forums v1.0.1
    This is a custom .htaccess to use on the IPS Community Suite Forums. It helps to improve your forums Google Page Speed and YSlow scores.
    The top segment is the same .htaccess that is generated by the IPS Forum software. This segment is Invision Power Services code and I do not claim it as my own. All rights and credit for this segment of the .htaccess are Invision Power Services.
    The bottom segment is based upon research of several websites and the references listed below. Please be careful when using this file because the contents may be incompatible with your server setup. Preventative measures have been taken to ensure that it should be safe to use in any Apache based environment.

    ​Dragonbrand here. Our community used to be an IP.Board too.
    Perhaps we should make a new tpic for us GW2 players so not to derail this one.

    ​Hey, Guild Wars 2 WvW! A fellow GW2 player?
  8. Tarun added a post in a topic I own 3 (three) lifetime licences, Please explain?   

    The Upgrades for life is what appealed to me as well and was the key selling point on getting the Perpetual License. While the $30 a year for support was not something we had to do, I chose to renew every year as a way to say thanks for the Perpetual License, to help support IPS because of how it could risk hurting their company in the long run, and just in case support was needed, it would be there. Thankfully there were only a few times where I needed support to look at my forums.

    I do hope there will be a blog post for this outlying things. This is a lot to think about and will surely add pressure to many webmasters. Stay on IP.Board 3.4.x forever, or continue to move forward.

    Another question for you, if you don't mind. But if we change the license over now will that alter the old renewals? I'm asking because mine tend to come in October and I'd prefer to keep them that way; over the years I've gotten it locked in my mind that's the timeframe (month) to re-up for another year for support.

    I will say the loss of a Lifetime/Perpetual license is a bit of a buzzkill for IPS4. I rather liked having my Perpetual license and knowing that should there ever be a time I could not pay for support for any such reason, that I would still be able to keep my forums up-to-date and not worry about security vulnerabilities, etc. That was a huge appeal to me when I got the Perpetual license was the lifetime ability to download the forum software any time it was necessary.

    I understand from the perspective of the business and everything, though I wish there was a better way to still honor your legacy license holders into the new system. I admit, I always wondered why renewing for support didn't allow the extra features such as IPS Anti-Spam, etc. to be a part of features those with legacy licenses could enjoy. Is no better way to honor/grandfather those who are on the legacy licenses while still allowing yourselves to move forward?

    I was under the impression that Lifetime/Perpetual License holders would have access to the forum software downloads no matter what the license structure was. Part of being grandfathered in and all.

    What about pricing for those who had Lifetime or Perpetual Licenses? How much per year would need to be paid?
    I have a Perpetual License and I pay $30 per year to IPS just in case I need support. Would that price stay the same or is it going to increase?
    If someone only needs IP.Board are they not able to retain their Lifetime/Perpetual license and utilize IP.Board 4?
    Is there an ETA for this change to take place?

    After reviewing this thread it sounds like the price would go up from $30 to $50 a year, which is a bit unfortunate. But, I can discuss this in PM rather than here on the forums.

    Now, what about people who use the automatic field entry software, like this addon, etc - https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/autofill-forms/

    Can still register extremely fast (when compared to average joe user) with that sort of software since all they'd have to do is the captcha and any additional questions.
  12. Tarun added a post in a topic IPB 4.0 Forum   

    Is there any problem with using an email address that is not used here on IPS? I used one of my more disposable addresses. I hope that's alright.
  13. Tarun added a post in a topic The Mandrill integration is excellent, time for search to be improved with Algolia   

    I see nowhere that the service is free.

    30 day free trial != free.

    Shame though. It does look interesting.
  14. Tarun added a post in a topic Stop the Spam: Guide to stopping spammers   

    If you have a Legacy (Lifetime or Perpetual) License you don't get to use the Anti-Spam features though, even if you do pay the renewal for support/etc to my knowledge. (If this is incorrect I'd love to know!)

    Worthwhile additions:

    I assume this is different if you're under a Legacy Lifetime/Perpetual License; is that correct?
