  1. ZackL added a post in a topic What's holding you back from upgrading to IPB 4.x?   

    Mostly politics at my community I'm with - some are questioning "why" we should upgrade. And our theme. We're trying to find a theme we like for 4.0. Mostly though, I don't have download access at the moment to the license because it's held by another community member and he recently left. So I'm trying to get him to transfer the license to me since I do the IPB upgrades over there.

    Thanks!
    What menu is that under?

    Where can I see see what I've bought here?
    Not talking IPS Addons. Those I know are in the client portal.
    But how/where can I find out what addons I've purchased from the marketplace here? Maybe I'm just missing something here.
    Thanks in advance!

    To answer some of your questions:
    1. You would need to purchase separate licenses for each installation.
    3. IPS Connect (this is built-in) does this by sharing accounts between sites. I think the user would have to login once on each site they wish to use as it creates a local "meta" account entry that just tells IPS to the account is stored elsewhere, and it also gives the user a member ID for posting to that community.. For SSO to work, they have to be on the same primary domain (ie: *.domain.ca) There's relevant documentation already here on the forums/website.
    4. IP.Content databases will serve this purpose nicely I think.

    Suggestion - Recheck members against IPS Spam Service
    I posted a question over in the Client Lounge, but got told to re-post here since it's not currently a feature. :)

    Anyway, the idea stems from having my community license inactive for a while. The suggestion would be to allow administrators to force a recheck of all members (batch-processed perhaps for larger boards) against the IPS spam service.

    I realize this probably is a niche request though. Maybe someone else has a less-niche idea to attach to this idea? :)

    He's talking about updating easier, not necessarily auto-updating.

    Not to mention @Ticket System, I think there's a 3rd party app on the Marketplace that does it?

    edit: Although, it appears it hasn't been updated recently, likely because of IP.Nexus.

    Only explanation I have is a possible permission oversight (it happens) when your board was originally configured. Although, out-of-box I do believe things are secured (meaning html posting is disabled for all groups).

    Personally, I just pretty much setup the "Validating" group to guest permissions and restrict them from posting.

    Owner A would indeed be unhappy :(

    Great idea :)
  10. ZackL added a post in a topic 3.4.0 beta?   



    I think he meant a downloadable copy from the QA area here. I personally want to take a look at the IPS Connect feature so I can start implementing it on an account system I've been wanting to make.
  11. ZackL added a post in a topic Suggestion: Stop spammers posting spam links in Status updates   

    Better question is how are your spammers getting through? Or are they human spammers with legitimate emails? If they're not human spammers, as long as you have an active IPB license, the IPS Spam Service should catch them. If it's not, try configuring its actions in: ACP -> System Settings -> Members -> Spam Prevention

    An idea you could do is moderate their posting (this might also moderate status updates for them - I don't use status updates personally).

    Another idea is to "Remove Status Update ability" from the group(s) you so desire.

    ACP -> Members -> Member Groups -> [select group] -> Global [tab] -> "Remove Status Update ability" => yes

    Haven't used them personally, but I'm planning on trying them out in the next month or so. Have to get the money together for them.
  13. ZackL added a post in a topic test-install without live-install   

    If I'm understanding right, you're asking whether you can install a test board without a live board installed. This, to my knowledge, is acceptable as long as you're using the test key and as long as you follow the things outlined in that article you linked. That is:
    Host it on an intranet server; or, Upload it to your website and disable new registrations + turn the community offline
  14. ZackL added a post in a topic Suggestion: Wikiposts - collaborative posts editable by multiple users   

    This idea would be awesome tbh. Something like stackoverflow's pseudo-wiki editing of posts.
  15. ZackL added a post in a topic Wordpress and IP.Board   



    There's nothing wrong with WP. I still find it preferable to IP.Blog myself, except for the lack of integration between IP.Board and WP (I kept having duplicate user accounts being created). However, with the announcement of IPS Connect, I suspect this integration won't be a problem.

    That said, if you're looking for a pure IPS implementation, Brandon's spot on when suggesting IP.Content as a solution to your initial question.
