Trix added a topic in General Chit ChatIPB and a Mac server?Hey all, two questions really.
Last weekend, we had our dedicated server attacked and taken down. We had 4 sites worth of data damaged.
It's been a painful process getting them back and brought up lots of questions too. We basically realised we were completely at the mercy of our provider. They fixed everything for us, including building a new server and moving everything over, but we was warned it should have cost us thousands in charges, which they skipped this time.
That's not good.
We want complete control over these sites. See we have about 4 sites running on this dedicated server, one of which is a large ipb forum. All the sites are ours, and are all to do with our business. We don't want to rent server space to anyone else, etc etc.
So, after this all happened we booked in a meeting with Apple Business support, who sat for over an hour explaining the Mac Server to us, and the possibilities and options etc. We are looking at getting a mac mini server, with lots of addon options such as (i think this is right) something to do with RAID and extra hard drives, and also upgrading our internet connection to a business line..
It all sounds good, one thing we was not sure about, was can you run an ipb installation on a Mac Mini Server? (Lion i believe)
Also, does anyone have any advice/tips on running a mac server and things we should be aware of? Running a server our selves is completely new territory for us, but also an exciting prospect, for our business.

Trix added a topic in IP.NexusNexus and AdvertisingJust wondering if i am missing something. I can create my own advertisement banner, and set it to expire in X days, but i cannot create an advertising package for people to buy, that expires in X days? Only with X impressions or clicks.
Is this right or am i missing something somewhere?

Trix added a topic in Product FeedbackHaving two issues on this siteFirstly, whenever loading a page on this site (using Chrome) i always get a blank page saying
No data received
Unable to load the web page because the server sent no data.<p id="suggestions" jsdisplay="suggestionsHeading" jstcache="2" style="-webkit-margin-start: 3px; margin-top: 15px; ">
Here are some suggestions:
Reload this web page later.
Error 324 (net::ERR_EMPTY_RESPONSE): The server closed the connection without sending any data.
Not sure if this is my computer, or the site causing this issue?
Second problem i am having is the 'Find Content' option when viewing a members profile. I tried using the button in my profile, and it showed me a list of posts/threads i had made, but there are a few missing.
For example i found this thread here
Which does not show up at all when viewing my content, here
Am i missing something or doing something wrong?

Trix added a topic in Product FeedbackMarketplace - Board version as filter/search option?Just been browsing the Marketplace and i couldnt see this option, or maybe it does not exist?
Is it not possible to filter items on there based on what version they are compatible with? It would make it a lot easier if you could click on 'Board' on the left and then choose from a list of board version such as 3.1 or 3.2 and then be shown mods for that version, rather than finding something you are interested in, and then discovering it's not compatible yet.

Trix added a topic in IP.BlogDatabase errors on this sites blogHi there, i'm not 100% on how to duplicate the error, but i went into the blog section, and used the search function to search for ip.content.
It brought up a list fine, but when i tried to open the first one on the list i got a database error. Here is a link to the blog i was trying to open, which still gives the error too :)
Wow, i made that really complicated huh?!

Trix added a topic in Pre-Sales QuestionsAnother IP.Content questionHello everyone, obviously I have some questions regarding IP.content so please bear with me whilst I try to explain them!
1) I've read a lot about how google loves Wordpress because of it being dynamic and the page constantly updating (With new blogs/replies etc). This lead me down the route of creating a Wordpress homepage, which in the links went to my forum.
Now, re-thinking this, would it do the same thing if I was to use ip.content as my homepage, and a block or section of the homepage would populate with recent posts/threads. For example 5 recent threads, or 5 recent posts. Would this cause google to keep checking the page because it is constantly updated?
2) The popular wiki debate I've seen on the forums! I want to create a wiki(ish) styled section. I don't want regular users to be able to edit it, just moderators and admins. It would have categories, and inside these categories would be items. For example... Wood -> Brown Wood................ Then inside the Brown Wood would be a page or a few lines explaining what brown wood is. Hope that makes sense.
3) If i can do this, is it searchable? So a user can type a word into the search box and if we have a definition for it, it will appear.
4) Custom HTML/CSS. Is it simple to take a html/css website design, and move it over to ip.content? I know basic/average html and css
5) That's all I can think of for now, thanks :)

Trix added a topic in IP.NexusLoyalty Discount: Extra OptionHey there, i've just installed Nexus on a test board and am thrilled with it. It has every option i need....apart from one tiny thing!
There is an option to add a 'Loyalty Discount' but it only lets you select other packages from the drop down. so if they own x amount of other packages they get a discount.
It would be nice (for me) to have an option in there aswell for post count, or registered since.
So if the user has more than X amount, they get a loyalty discount. Or if they have been registered X amount of days they get a discount.
Or is this already there somewhere and i've missed it?

Trix added a topic in Pre-Sales QuestionsExpired License and recent promotion questionHey there, i purchased my board, blog, gallery and chat licenses this year. My time has run out on all of them except the chatroom, and i am due to renew them in the next few days when i get paid.
My question is regarding the promotion on right now. Will the renewal prices be lower also, or are they the same as normal? And if i renew my board license, will i be able to get the Nexus at the promotional price?

Trix added a topic in Company FeedbackFew problems whilst trying to purchase!Hey there, i'm trying to purchase the board, gallery and blog package but keep hitting a few problems.
On the main page i choose Our Suite and then select the board. Then i click to add the gallery and blog and click the checkout button.
It will take me to the next page where i enter my details. If i click the header image here (I opened in a new tab to check something) the start of the url is https which takes you to an error page. (Only a small problem but thought it was worth a mention!)
I enter in my details and click to confirm, and i was told that my email already existed on the system ( I assume because i'm signed up on the forums ) So it asked me to login which i did ok. However on the page it took me too all i could find was the option to buy the board, and no additional items (I wanted to purchase it all at once)
So, i went back to the main page again and restarted the whole process. Chose my board, gallery, blog and clicked to go to the checkout. Then i was presented with an error saying
If you feel you have reached this page in error please contact us or submit a report to our bug tracker and let us know how you got here.
Also on this page, a fair few of the links are also https which results in error pages.
I'm going to hunt around and see if i can figure out how to purchase!!! :)
Please don't take this post as a grumble at all, i'm in love with IPB! I just wanted to point out some of these errors i encountered in case it is happening to other people too, and putting them off a purchase!
Oh, Can it be possible to have an option to change the currency on the purchase page to UK GBP also? I have to keep loading external sites to see how much it will cost me in GBP not Dollars!
