Simon Culshaw added a topic in Product FeedbackAuto-Upgrader FeedbackI'd set aside a considerable amount of time today to perform an upgrade but was pleasantly surprised by the simplicity and speed with which the auto-upgrade worked.
I normally spend a hugh amount of time uploading the files to my server because I've got a constrained upload speed.
Thank you for the improvements to the Auto-Upgrader - It's working fantastic!

Simon Culshaw added a post in a topic Invision Power Board using multiple Active Directory Domains?
Simon Culshaw added a topic in Pre-Sales QuestionsInvision Power Board using multiple Active Directory Domains?I'm considering whether or not Invision Power Board would be suitable for use in the organisation where I work.
Unfortunately one of the problems we have is that as a result of mergers and takeovers we don't currently have "one" source of Colleague Authentication
Does anyone or has anyone integrated Invision Power Board to use multiple Active Directories (e.g. 3) for authentication purposes
We wouldn't want solely guest access and we'd want to avoid the need to for people to register etc on what will be an intranet based solution.
Apologies if there isn't enough information here to provide an appropriate answer, please let me know if you want more detail.

Simon Culshaw added a topic in Product FeedbackSearchI'd like to see the removal of this:
"One or all of your search keywords were below 3 characters or you searched for words which are not allowed, such as 'html', 'img', etc, please increase the length of these search keywords or choose different keywords."
I appreciate that you might want a filter such as this for performance reasons / to reduce the number of answers back but wouldn't it be better to:-
Drop the keywords that were below 3 characters
Use the remaining keywords (if there are any)
Return the results
Tell the user you didn't include these words...
Hope that makes sense
My primary reason for this request is that I quite often like to search on a particular error message to find a solution and always come unstuck.

Simon Culshaw added a topic in Product FeedbackVery Happy IPS CustomerI have been an IPS Customer for about 6 years and I don't recollect ever taking the time to say "Thank You!" so here is a long overdue...
I've put together a short list of things that I think make IPS and the IPS Community stand out:-
The 3.2 product set is quite simply amazing, it was difficult to think back when I was installing version 1.2 that things would come along so
far in such a short time. Great Team, Great Product Set, Keep up the hard work!
- Always timely - I don't recollect having to wait long for an informed response
- Excellent Knowledge - It's always a pleasure to deal with someone who knows what they are talking about!
- Excellent Value for Money - In all honesty I believe the support received for the cost is market leading
- It's great to see a community of so many people who devote their time and expertise to IPS related products whilst not getting paid for their services!
- I'm really glad to see a Marketplace full of so many great add-ons, I've always found something to meet my requirements, I'm currently implementing
Social Groups, Classifieds and Links but I do have some other plugins too! Thank you to those authors!
I'm sure I can think of more things to add here, anyone want to point out anything I might have missed? :laugh:

Simon Culshaw added a topic in Company FeedbackIPhone ApplicationJust thought I would throw an idea into the mix!
How about making custom versions of your IPhone application?
e.g. I am thinking along the lines of having a version of the IPhone Application that is branded as per the community it is locked to rather than allowing the user to select the community.
It's good to be able say you can use an IPhone application to access the site but its even better to say you can use MY IPhone application to access the site.
I know this has many drawbacks from a code management perspective etc but I always figure If you don't ask then you won't get!
