    [4.0.13] Error generating invoice in Admin CP
    An issue has been identified where generating an invoice from within the Admin CP may result in an error. This issue is only present when going to the customer page and clicking "Add Invoice" from there - it is not present when going to the main invoice list and clicking "Create Invoice" and then choosing the customer on the first step.
    This issue will be fixed in the next release of IPS Community Suite. In the meantime, to fix this issue, upload the attached file to the folder specified, overwriting the file that is already there:
    Alternatively, since the issue is not present when clicking "Create Invoice" from the main invoice list, you can create an invoice in that way if you are not comfortable with applying the patch.

  2. Mark added a post in a topic Paypal subscriptions 4.0 no longer work, IPS says to cancel them?? Can't you create a legacy gateway?   

    In IP.Nexus for IP.Board 3, there were two PayPal gateways: "PayPal (Website Payments Standard)" (where the user gets redirected to, which does not require an SSL certificate) and "PayPal (Website Payments Pro)" (where the user enters card information directly on your site, which does require an SSL certificate).
    In IPS Community Suite 4, both options are still available, though both are now under a single "PayPal" gateway (and within that, it asks you which method you want) and how recurring payments works has changed if you choose the option for users to be taken to, recurring subscriptions can no longer be created (though ones created before upgrading are still recognised, a feature that was added since this topic was started). This is because when we wrote IPS4, PayPal's API didn't include support for it. It does now, and we intend to add support in a future version. If you choose the option for users to enter their card details directly on your site - the process is similar as it was in 3, though uses PayPal's new "Vault" API - the card details are stored on PayPal's servers, not yours, as is explained on the configuration screen.
    2CheckOut also no longer supports recurring subscriptions.
  3. Mark added a post in a topic Please update version default of bugs when submitting, or remove the default selection, or we end up reporting bugs for older versions, thanks   

    That means "fixed in [version]". We don't really need to know the version it occurred in.
  4. Mark added a post in a topic IPS 4.0: The current state of BBCode and its future. Is BBCODE officially abandoned?   

    Not at all. As I said right at the start of this topic we support BBCode. In the bug report linked to, a simple mistake was made, and, since you pointed it out, I corrected that. You could have just replied to the bug report saying something like "Hey, I think you may have misunderstood" and it would have been reopened too.
    As I said before, if you are experiencing any other issues, please do let us know about them and we will endeavour to resolve them.

    IPS4 supports BBCode and we have no intention to remove that in the foreseeable future. If you see any issues, please open a bug report or file a support request. It looks like that bug report was closed in error, and I've re-opened it - thanks for letting us know about that  
  6. Mark added a post in a topic Edit title in topic list   

    This will be in 4.0.9.

  7. Mark added a post in a topic Annoying - New version news in ACP   

    Even if we made it dismissible you'd have to upgrade to get that  
    But yes, it shouldn't show future versions. They should be gone now.
  8. Mark added a post in a topic Is it possible to run IPS in an intranet?   

    You need to have an external connection for the license check and some features. However, you can still have an installation that does not accept inbound connections, behind a VPN or limited to an internal network for example. Actually, we have this set up ourselves, as do several clients  
  9. Mark added a post in a topic 3.4 Features missing in 4.0   

    We add stuff here once we know we're doing it:  
  10. Mark added a post in a topic IP. Nexus 5.0?   

    It's quite a seamless process though - on the form where you provide your billing details, it will just also ask for your email and a password.
  11. Mark added a post in a topic Syntax highlighting - plain code option please!   

    I'll see if we can get it added  
  12. Mark added a post in a topic Error Code List   

    We don't have a list - the error codes are just so we can do a search of the code and find it easily. We try to make the error messages themselves provide as much information as necessary. If you post the code here though, I can look it up for you.
  13. Mark added a post in a topic 3.4 Features missing in 4.0   

    We rewrote the whole suite. We don't have a list of things we removed because we don't think in those terms. I promise you we didn't sit around a whiteboard one day and brainstorm what should be "removed". We redesigned and reimagined everything, obviously lots of things are done different, we think, and hope you agree, they're done much better. To make a list of every area we changed functionality in some way would not be feasible, and would amount to a list of everything in the whole suite.
    As a random example, one could say we "removed" the "More Reply Options" button from the "Quick Reply" feature, which is how you had to add attachments to posts - but that's because in IPS4, all the options are already there, you can upload attachments from the "quick reply". We think that's a clear improvement, and the same goes for many of the things raised in this topic,
    Now if there is something which you preferred the way 3 did, please let us know (ideally with a new topic). We often change things based on feedback and will continue to do so.

     That's possible, click on the button you want to edit permissions for at Customisation > Editor > Toolbars.

    These are still available by creating a constants.php file (we relegated it here because unless you're using a custom SSO setup, changing them is not only unnecessary but will cause problems).
    These are all present (along with options to configure the storage options for any upload type) at System > Overview > Files > Storage Settings
