    If you are trying to use the 3.4.x themes they wont work. Nor will any of the mods & apps. 4.0 is a totally different animal.  You would have known this by fully reading the topic not to mention it has been stated many of times in this topic and others. Now if I misread your comment as a wise ass I apologize. But that's the way I am reading it.
     
    All the pertinent files and directories that need to be edited and copied over are mentioned.

    Group Icon Image Please consider
    This theme design issue has been plaguing me for some time now and it is turning into an obsession.

    In 3.x We could call up a team icon per skin theme as so.


    How do I go about creating a field in 4.0.x?

    As of this moment it can't be done.

    Yes I can add this to the phtml template as so.
    html - forums - front - topics - postContainer.phtml
    Add after
    <li class='ipsResponsive_hidePhone'><img src='{file="$comment->author()->group['g_icon']" extension="core_Theme"}' alt='' class='cAuthorGroupIcon'></li>
    {{endif}}
    at or near line 39.

    <li class='{expression="\IPS\Member\Group::load( $comment->author()->member_group_id )" raw="true"}'></li>
    But I have discovered that this is an impractical method and not the way to go for production themes.
    I have tried this also as a profile field as



    background-image: url( {resource="team_icons/admin.png" app="core" location="custom"} );But for every attempt I get an error that it is invalid.

    So please bring this back....
    For this I promise not to pick on Lindy's love for Chevy's....
    OK that may be stretching it a bit on keeping that one. But I did type it without laughing.............................................................(much)
    Thanks-

    Nice-
    I am sure those having trouble converting or issues with the converter itself will find that there is another alternative to getting it to play nice.

    When you have the chance post your method here for those having the same issue. I think it will save a few strands of hair being ripped out
    Though the converter did a great job for a number of us there are still those like yourself getting frustrated with it not working for them.
  5. Woodsman added a post in a topic Automated support response   

    Understanding what you are saying and feeling I have to agree with Morrigan. Even with a tick system you will still have those that will tick it in panic or expect tech support to jump for them at the drop of the hat. Then fold the proverbial page thinking it will be the shortest path from A to Z. Not everyone knows how to trouble shoot like those of us that have been around for some time. This method geared for those with less experience and patients while the rest get caught in the shuffle. As we can remember from the past with 3.0 the support tickets rose to a point where the tickets were gotten to much later than the intended 2 business days max. So I don't believe this automated system is really designed to be disrespectful but more of a sane method to weed out the easily fixed issues using the support tool leaving tech support the more in-depth issues.

    I have used the converter both ways on a few of test sites on my local without issue. Both are working fine on my local. My live 3.4.8 site is also utf-8mb4 and it too is working as expected.
    Remember that the utf-8 is more of a common character standard as where utf-8mb4 is more complex for other applications.

    You need to be a client to download.
    If you are a client then logout and login with your client credentials.

    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.
  14. 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.
