    We run standard LAMP on this site right now. No memcached. Nothing fancy. We want to be sure we get the software running well on a standard environment before going nuts with fancy technology

    I'm a big fan of keeping my setup a very simple LAMP to start off with. Then I like to see how much tuning I can get out of that standard setup. Once I feel I have tuned it as much as I can then I will start introducing memcached and opcache. I just think you cannot overstate the importance of having your base-technology (web server and MySQL) well configured before you start getting all the more advanced things. But that's not really what we're talking about here but I'm a sharer like that

    Just shows you care about your site that you get so worried when things aren't right
  6. Charles added a post in a topic IPS4 Feature Plan   

    The coming soon section is shown to be things truly coming soon as in a month or so. We thought that way more useful for your planning than things that could be way off in the future.

    Sorry about that - we're fixing it. It's a backend problem.

    Sounds like a perfect thing for a Marketplace submission

    There have been handful of posts but compared to other feedback it's not very high on the list.

    Actually it matters very, very much why someone wants a feature. Knowing why someone wants something tells us us how to implement a feature. Otherwise you're just flying blind.

    Quite a few people but I don't listen to them

    I don't blame you for getting annoyed We don't want there to be such a back log either. Thinks are improving though with each release and we are getting ahead of the curve.

    I am sorry you are experiencing problems with your Downloads app.
    Our last support reply was on Friday and it is now Tuesday morning. The reply on Friday did indicate that these sort of issues that require higher level attention can take longer. Unfortunately when we have to get a programmer involved to diagnose issues they do take a bit longer than normal support.
    We of course focus on clients with critical, site-wide issues first. I realize that this probably small comfort to you if the Downloads section of your site is important and I do understand how you could be frustrated. Our staff is working through tickets as I type.

  15. Charles added a post in a topic Who else see the complete page in embedded content?   

    We are looking into it. The issue is specific to the odd scenario we had here where we had a database in a page, moved the database to a new page, then deleted the old page. The system got a bit confused with all that as you can imagine
