  1. Sign In Anonymously Never Worked?

    There's no more indicator for being signed in anonymously in IPS4 I believe, so you'll see yourself as normal, whereas in IPB3.4 your name would be prefixed with an asterisk. Or are you saying when viewing this site in an incognito tab (while signed out), you still see yourself on the member list?
  2. @Makoto - I recently purchased your (Editor) Message Box, it's really something I would like to use but unfortunately, with me wanting to use it as a 'call-to-action' style notification, I simply can't because it doesn't allow links to be added.

    I really would love to be able to add links to the messages.

    Is it possible to tweak it so that links can be added? I think others would find this useful.

    Many thanks. :)

      @Makoto - That could be the reason, for me it happens on chrome (I will test Firefox). When I had a link, it just brings the URL box up - I add the link and the box returns without a URL.

      Hm, it seems to work fine for me in Chrome as well.

      Could you send me a personal message and provide me with a temporary administrator account on your forum so that I can investigate the issue and make sure it's not a bug specific to your forum?

    4. Joey_M

      Yes no problem @Makoto - I couldn't even get it to work with Firefox. :(

  3. Version 0.3.1


    Introduction ipsv is an unofficial Vagrant box utility designed specifically for Invision Power Suite third party developers. It aims to make developing IPS applications and plugins a more enjoyable experience by eliminating the headache of having to manage and manually configure a local development environment using WAMP or similar means. Whenever you normally want to make a new test install of IPS, you have to.. Download the most recent IPS release Extract the setup files to a new web directory Apply proper permissions to those files and folders Update the configuration files for your web server Create a new MySQL database Go through the process of running the web installer and filling in all your server information again Download the most recent developer tools from the marketplace Extract those developer tools to your IPS installation Create a new constants.php file to finally put the installation into IN_DEV mode. That's quite a headache to go through every time you want to create a new IPS test installation. Wouldn't it be nice if you could automate doing all of the above in a single command? Meet IPS Vagrant. What is Vagrant? Vagrant is software for managing virtual development environments. It allows you to easily create and destroy virtual machines on the fly. What is IPS Vagrant? IPSV is a custom server and configuration file management application that comes pre-installed on the FujiMakoto/ipsv Vagrant box.   For more information (including installation instructions), please check out the Getting Started section of the projects README page.


  4. Made a typo trying to access the IPS website. Not sure what I discovered in the process.

    1. chilihead

      Shhh, that's the 5.0 test site.

  5. It's a nice idea, but if you're turning the site offline to perform maintenance and relying on a constant to do that, you'll just end up shutting yourself out as well. If you really want to do that, I'd say the best way of going about it is at the web server level. E.g., with Nginx, to bring the site offline for maintenance while still allowing your IP address access, location / { try_files $uri $uri/ /index.php; # Maintenance response allow; deny all; return 503; } # Error pages error_page 500 501 502 503 504 /error/5xx.html; location ^~ /error/ { internal; root /var/www/default; } Write your own custom error page in 5xx.html here and it'll accomplish what you want. I'm sure you can do the same thing with Apache as well.
  6. I believe IPS4's new application and plugin framework presents a great opportunity to implement a marketplace repository system into the suite. What do I mean by a repository? Currently, in order to install an application, plugin, or theme, you have to download it from the marketplace here. However, wouldn't it be great if you could browse and install all the available third party resources right from within your very own Admin Control Panel? For 98% of IPS4 resources, no manual uploading of files is needed outside of the standard application tarball or plugin/theme XML files. All you'd need for an internal repository is an API to remotely download these files from the marketplace here, then build and install them in the users local installation automatically. The added benefit to installing resources from a repository is upgrades for third party modifications can now be processed automatically along with upgrades for the software suite. I believe this would be a great addition for us marketplace contributors as well, as I think this is something that could really spur more client interest and activity in the third party marketplace.
  7. IP.Board 3.3.x, 3.4.x and IP.Nexus 1.5.9 Security Update

    Yes, if you're upgrading to the latest release, it will include all security patches posted to date, you won't need to apply them after upgrading.
  8. IP.Board 3.3.x, 3.4.x and IP.Nexus 1.5.9 Security Update

    Yes, you merge and overwrite everything.
  9. IPS 4.1 is extremely slow

    I'm guessing resources are intentionally not compressed / optimized at this stage since this website is still in development preview (more or less), so I wouldn't take those results seriously right now.
  10. IPS 4.1 is extremely slow

    I believe an update was just pushed through that addressed the performance issues with notifications, it's back to normal for me now after the recent brief maintenance break.
  11. I actually prefer Opera now myself. Which is now built on Blink. So essentially still Chrome. But better!
  12. Annoying notification icon (content already read)

    This is a bug,  
  13. Desktop and e-mail notifications

    I actually have that enabled. It must be a bug then. I'll submit a bug report. Edit: I don't think that's what I really want. I want to be able to stay active on the site without receiving e-mail notifications. The way that is worded, it seems like it just limits the amount of e-mails I will receive while I'm not active, yes? (The above actually seems to have no effect either way, so it's possibly still a bug)
  14. IPS 4.1 is extremely slow

    No, they do it the right way.
  15. This is something that I also wish could just be implemented and configured in the browser API (notification sounds), but not even Chrome's notifications support that I believe. Anyways, I would support that as a toggleable option. I can see it being potentially annoying.
