    [4.0.11-4.0.12] Domains to instruct search engines to follow
    An issue has been identified in IPS Community Suite 4.0.11 where the "Domains to instruct search engines to follow" may not save correctly,
    If you are experiencing either of these issues, upload the attached files to the applications/core/modules/admin/settings folder, overwriting the file that is already there. This patch will be included in version 4.0.13.

  3. 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

    [4.0.9-4.0.10] Upgrade stuck at "Preparing your update"
    An issue has been identified in IPS Community Suite through to version 4.0.9.2 where, when attempting to upgrade, the system may display "Preparing your update" and never actually download the update file.
    There are two ways to resolve this issue:
    You can go the client area and download the full package.You can upload this file, overwriting the existing one, after which the update should download without issue: applications/core/modules/admin/overview/dashboard.php 
    After you have upgraded to IPS Community Suite 4.0.10, or applied the patch, subsequent updates should not have an issue.

    This will be in 4.0.9.

    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

    We add stuff here once we know we're doing it: http://community.invisionpower.com/4releasenotes/

    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
