  1. Sam A added a review on a file Display Name History   


    I've added this to my board for all my staff but also as a perk for a a paid member group, but it seems it only shows for groups that have permission to edit a profile. Is this correct? I have selected the paid member group from the dropdown within the plugin settings but they definitely do not have the option when viewing another user's profile.
    I also have forum moderators that do not have the ability to edit a user's profile and they are unable to view the display name history as well, despite being selected within the plugin's settings.
    I have verified this myself.
    Thanks for any assistance!

    I never even noticed it had gone.

    I wonder why they removed it?

    A Compliment
    Thought I'd take a few minutes out to compliment IPS and the technical support staff for some excellent service I've received this past week.

    I've been a license holder for 5 years now and in that time it has been very rare that I've had to use support, I've either had no serious issues or any I have had I've been able to fix myself. However since upgrading to 3.0.x I've had two semi-serious problems, one with converting old PMs into the new personal conversation format and the other to do with my IP.Board skin mysteriously getting b0rked. Both problems were dealt with in a timely manner and one in particular was escalated to tier II in an agreeable timeframe.

    Overall, it's good to know that peace of mind is there if it's ever needed.

    Well done. :)

    I agree with Adam, this is a terrible business decision in my opinion and I'm sure many others would agree. It doesn't say much for IPS' as a software company that after 4 years of development they still can't release the actual product. Not that I was ever going to use Nexus, I'm glad more attention is to be given to IPB.

    Vaporware is a term that springs to mind.

    Yeah, we get the point you don't like it.

    Stewart has left IPS?
  7. Sam A added a comment EX2 Something has gone wrong. Please try again.   

    What I'd like to see is an option to configure whether or not a group should appear on the moderating team page.
  8. Sam A added a comment Can't right click/paste in editor   

    Nothing wrong with both checks, they should just be the other way around:


    CODE/* Check URL */

    if( ! $this->install->ipsclass->input['install_dir'] )
    {
         $errors[] = 'You did not specify a URL';    
    }

    /* Check Directory */
    if( ! ( is_dir( $this->install->ipsclass->input['install_dir'] ) ) )
    {
          $errors[] = 'The specified directory does not exist';
    }

    To break the tables, as I have just done.

    If you upgraded B1 to B2 did you clear your caches to make sure any Javascript changes aren't being emitted?

    You also get no error if you try to upload a file that would push you over your max attachment space setting.

    @bfarber

    But there is no seperate edit permission, this is where the problem lies.

    @Matt

    To answer your question, I have a knowledge base type forum on my site that no one has reply permissions for, but obviously as it is a KB information changes and needs to be updated/removed.

    @bfarber

    You're saying that if I don't give a user group permission to reply in one forum, they shouldn't be allowed to edit their posts globally? o_O


  14. Sam A added a comment Theme's Download Without Templates Changes   

    You do know this is a bug tracker, right?
  15. Sam A added a comment Emoji in topic title - fatal error   

    This is due to the txt_truncate() function in ipsclass, which is used to truncate the topic title to make it fit in the tables. I *think* (going off memory here) that there is a regex in the function to replace broken html entities but it doesn't seem to be working.

    Looking at the source a fix would be to change the regex to check for letters and numbers in entities, although there seems to be an issue with entities that don't have a # as well.
