  1. Loren added a comment 4.0.7. Pages. Articles pick up wrong attachments   

    I think I am seeing the same - mostly on older articles in my case.Seems like it has added every attachment on my site to all older articles. Including 0 byte (deleted) attachments. It can be corrected by editing each individual article and deleting the several hundred erroneous attachments.

  2. Loren added a bug in Bug Tracker

    This is good information and a fairly easy workaround (for those sites that do not provide RSS).
    Thank you!

    Done - thanks!

    UTF8 Converter
    Converter stops after 4-5 tables (tried on 3 different db's -- one running Windows 7 OS and one running Linux (live) server).
    Chrome Browser: Version 35.0.1916.153 m (I also tried Mozilla and IE 11)
    Tools report:
    IP.Board Character Set: utf-8
    Database Character Set: utf8
    Original table prefix: ibf_
    Converted table prefix: x_utf_ibf_
    203 tables are latin1
    2 tables are utf8
    192 tables have incorrect collations
    Can use 'dump' method: true

    Sorry UTF8 converter still stops after 4 or 5 tables (I did download the latest version).
  7. Loren added a post in a topic The Future Of IPB Blog ( 4.0 )   

    I let my IP.Blog license expire as no one was using it.
    78,000 plus members and only 3 or 4 updated their blogs monthly.

    Not sure if there is a better solution out there but I am open to new ideas...
  8. Loren added a comment on a file Keyword Tooltips   

    Bought this from Michael's site yesterday - great idea with great implementation and, easy to use.
  9. Loren added a post in a topic Security improvement idea   

    I think Two Step Authentication makes good sense.

    Go to the IPS pricing page (http://www.invisionpower.com/buy/)
    Click on "Multiple License Discounts"

    Archiving and consolidation
    An unfortunate by-product of using the Archiving system is inability to later consolidate forums (or sub-forums).

    Basically I want to merge some of older hardly used sub-forums into one (parent) forum. Under normal forum operation this works fine and you are asked which forum you want to move topics into.
    But if you have archiving turned on and have archived topics in that forum it will not allow you delete or (or move?) topics.

    Seems like it somewhat defeats some of the purpose of archiving.

    Hopefully there might be a solution or work-around in the future (other than un-archiving - make the changes - then re-archive everything again).

    3.4.2 Editor - Great improvments - Thank you
    I just want to thank Matt & company for fixing the issues in the editor.
    Much improved - and I for one thank you all your hard work (amid lots of demands and opinions).

    Just another reason I've stuck with IPS for 10 years!

    If you go to the "Manage Your Community" tab in your client area it gives a break down of each addon you are paying for.
    I also have Copyright Removal on one of my sites and it shows no cost in my client area.
  14. Loren added a post in a topic Editor Feedback   

    The WYSIWYG editor has made great advances in the past few years. You folks have done a great job of getting us lots of great features.

    - I think the editor needs to work the same (at least to the end user) in all the Suite apps - especially IP.Content. Inconsistent operation drives users crazy (as well as admins).
    - For those will special needs - allow compatible plug-ins. Not everyone wants or needs some plug-ins -- so make them option if you can. (for example unlike the previous poster no one on any of my 3 site has ever used the programmers BBcode except in error).
    - I think the toughest thing is likely converting old posts, articles, comments, etc. I have one site that is ten years old and formatting from older posts gets whacked when editing (i.e. updating tutorials). If you can create a tool that can run a good clean-up that would be great.

    Thanks for all the great work so far!

    At the risk of becoming what I seem to think is a flame war...
    Everyone is entitled to their opinion.
    You do not have to agree or disagree - it is "their" opinion.

    So let's just get this topic back on track to feedback that can improve the "Best Answer" feature.
