  1. Woodsman added a post in a topic Upgrade from IP. 3.4.x to IPS4.0 (updated)   

    We have been doing it all along so you are welcome to join in.
    I am not a staff member here at IPS and I wrote this to be more of a Member's 1 on 1 help article.

    I don't believe they will work on another's 3rd party app though. Having to do with stepping on toes, copyright and if it does not work as expected then it is their problem now.

    Are you lookig to upgrade your live board or a test board?
    IPS will upgrade your licensed live board for free as far as the core and official apps you hold license to. Just go to your clients center and submit a ticket.
    Unfortunatly they will not be able to upgrade your 3rd party apps. These you will need to contact the app authors.

    If I had the time I would, but you can go here https://community.invisionpower.com/third-party/providers and talk to these fine people.
    As for me I am in preparation to spend a week in a boat with nothing more than a fishing pole on my mind.

    First Part
    Again - The framework IPS 4.0 is built on is not compatible with any part of the older 3.4.x or earlier structures. This has been stated a number of times in this topic as many other topics. Skin Themes, Mods, apps and hooks from the previous versions can not be used with 4.0's new frame work. All of these have to be rebuilt from the ground up using the new framework.
    2nd Part
    Yes  it is possible for the coder (understanding the 4.0 framework) to rewrite a hook compatible to IPS 4.0.

    In most cases it will be up to the 3rd party App author to do the upgrade. As for IPS created apps, they have already been upgraded.
  7. Woodsman added a post in a topic Upgrade from IP. 3.4.x to IPS4.0 (updated)   

    No, Due to 4.0 being a totally rewritten framework 3.4.x apps and skins will not be compatable

    If you are getting reminants of IPS4 then you are trying to run the upgraded version of your backup. Try another fresh copy of the board backup and database.
  9. Woodsman added a post in a topic can members can still lock/close topics ...?   

    Even with this said, I'd find it hard to believe that many potential members / customers would stick around seeing a forum loaded with topics that have been closed. For me personally a forum like this would appear disorganized and out of control.
  10. Woodsman added a post in a topic can members can still lock/close topics ...?   

    Hmmm, It appears that you are correct with 3.4.x.
    I suppose I was just automatically disabling it without really noticing it and actually I am glad to see this fixed in 4.0. Closing topics or posts should be a moderated feature set by Administration anyway. Can you imagine a forum filled with closed topics by members rather than staff?
  11. Woodsman added a post in a topic can members can still lock/close topics ...?   

    This has never been an option. Administrators and those moderators given lock/close abilities by administration are able to do this.

    Maybe not with IPS4 itself, but if you are attempting to convert 3.4.7 or 3.4.8 to UTF8 or UTF8mb4 prior to any upgrade they should.

    ​You may want to submit a ticket for this one. Sounds like a possibility of a corrupt file

    ​m@t I got what you are saying right from the start and I do feel the pain you are expressing because it has happened to me as well not all that long ago. But the facts still remain. We as clients and clients removed all read and agreed to the same terms of service. As for lack of customer care I have to disagree. During my down time as a member the staff still worked with me on issues as well as keeping a professional mindset with my timing issue as far as renewals were concerned. People need to remember Professionalism bigots Professionalism. Rants will only bigot a bandwagon of other rants. You yourself agreed to the same terms as the rest of us knowing full well that if you choose not to renew, by IPS policy the last upgrades will be removed and all client access and privileges temporarily suspended.
    Let me ask you this. Is it fair for a licensed driver to get fined for driving on an expired license?  The driver knows he or she driving without a legitimate license. It comes down to Policy and licensee responsibility. It is our responsibility to keep these licenses active.
    When I lost my privileges as with many others we knew what the outcome would be. So there was no reason to complain. It is nothing personal against you (us) from IPS's point of view just business.
    Have you ever purchased a software where a couple of months later the site was closed and no way of getting support or your money back? Better yet.... Have you ever purchased a software where in the next upgrade they forced you to pay full price again?
  15. Woodsman added a post in a topic I have 3 that's not renewed. If I renew, do I get 4?   

    ​The short answer is Yes. Once you renew your license and it has been validated you will then see the latest IPS 4 version for download.
