  1. Machsterdaemon added a post in a topic "New Content" link/lookup not available for guests?   

    I have the Activity stream disabled for all users.


  2. Machsterdaemon added a post in a topic Finding posts by member from date   

    Yes, but I need to find posts by member and using custom date, and this worked in 3.4 without using any other search term.

    What did you search for, and have you tried this custom date search?
    It hasn't been working so therefore I asked.

    Finding posts by member from date
    This seems to be missing from IPS4 (4.0.8.1).
    I found this useful in IP.Board 3.4 when finding posts by member from date as the search was much more quicker.
    I used the advanced search and I think I just needed to write the name of the member in the author field and choose the date.

  5. Machsterdaemon added a post in a topic 3.4 Features missing in 4.0   

    This 3.4 feature seems to be missing:
    Time option, but not just date when using advanced search.
  6. Machsterdaemon added a post in a topic Favorite Browser?   

    Firefox because of the bookmark manager.
  7. Machsterdaemon added a post in a topic Tutorial for making a test install?   

    Remember to change some General Configuration settings like:
    Path to 'upload' directory
    Upload URL
    Images URL
    and perhaps?:
    Community name:
    Website name:

  9. Machsterdaemon added a post in a topic Version upgrade and download permission in the AdminCP   

    ​Yes, I can do that in my own client area for my own licensed site, but not in the client area for the alternate contact, as the alternate contact has no permission to download packages.
    So, as an admin on another ones licensed site, I depend on his staff to download packages and make them available to me. The upgrade option in the IPS 4.0 beta AdminCP is also not usable to me as the admin if I have to submit the owner IPS account password.

    Version upgrade and download permission in the AdminCP
    When upgrading to a new version in the 4.0 beta AdminCP you require the IPS account username and password, but that is not always a practical solution to keep the community software up to date.
    In my own case I not only have my own license but I'm also an administrator on another license owner site, with full admin permission, and I do all the site management on my own.
    When a new version is available I have to contact the staff of the owner to ask them to download new version and make it available to me. This is very impractical in my own case.
    I'm in the process of testing IPS 4.0 beta versions and you have now made a new version available, so now I need to contact the owner staff again to make them download the new version and make it available to me. There will come more test releases and maintenance releases when the final version has been released so this is very impractical in my own case.
    What I want to suggest is that:
    You make the upgrade available to the admin that has permission to use it and not just the IPS account.That a new package is downloaded and made available at a later useIf this is not acceptable to you, then please consider to give upgrade and download permission to the alternative contact too.

    What about the folder with the smileys? It is needed if you have custom smileys?

    Using the standalone utf8 converter script vs. the built in 4.0 upgrade
    Is it possible under normal circumstances to use the built in utf8 converter in the 4.0 upgrade script when upgrading from 3.4.6 to 4.0 on a medium sized community database with more than million posts?

    Support tickets and alternative contact
    I've been made as alternative contact for one license owner and I have been responding to ticket which the license owner or his staff submitted.

    What I don't like is that my own tickets for my own board through the years are not separated from the tickets that the other license owner has submitted.

    I would like to see that these tickets from these two different license owner being separated and have their own section.

    Exportable or sortable File Checker and Deep Scan results feature request
    What I would like to see improved is the ability to either sort the File Checker and Deep Scan result by date, or to export the result so it can be managed more easily.
