They should direct people to that page when they download the 4.0 RC's. As it currently stands, the link in the client area directs you to the old instructions. After a search, I ended up manually changing folder permissions as per the instructions here: http://community.invisionpower.com/topic/407376-how-to-upgrade-from-347-to-40-rc/ Now I'm not sure if that's correct, because there is no mention of those specific permission changes in your link, and the installer didn't prompt me to make them.
Yup. I noticed that too, unfortunately. Right. But what about the documentation for people who want to install the betas and RC's? I had to search the forum (to no avail) to find out what folders needed permission changes during 4.0 installation. Only by fluke did I stumble upon the instructions in a completely random thread (while looking for something else) that another user had posted - And I have no idea where he got the instructions from. Not gonna lie, wasting time trying to find basic info like that is a tad bit annoying.
Thanks for the link. I had actually set my memory limit to 256, but the article states to avoid going over 128... Maybe that is the root cause of my issue. Will set it down to 128 and see if it resolves the issue.
I'm in the same boat as you and the lightbulb went off as I was reading that exact same thread! I was like ahhhh, now I get it! I think the possibilities with IPS4 are endless. This software is KILLER. Totally excited!
But what about the issue that esquire raises about photos? I don't consider these to be "posts". How much thought and effort goes into uploading photos? Zero effort. Yet they get credit as "posts" in this new scheme.
