  1. Not sure what happened to the summer season this year, I must of blinked and missed it...

    1. AndyF

      And I like the 'colder' seasons too, just I like them balanced out a bit rather than 'not warm' and 'cold' seasons only hehe...

  2. Price changes to Cloud service

    More info here: Although as has been said if you have any questions just submit a ticket in the Client Area and a member of staff will be pleased to answer any questions you have regarding the packages available.
  3. From Self hosted to Cloud

    Yes this is quite possible. I'd suggest a ticket in the Client Area so a tech can advise you on the transfer itself. I think a tech may do it for you as you're coming to IPS hosting. I'm not sure if there will be any kind of pro-rota discount if you have much time left on your existing licence, again a tech will advise. Note that IPS hosting is for IPS products, this basically means you cannot really have many other scripts or external pages.
  4. I want my credit back - disagree automatic renewal

    I was not aware the $100 'offer' was still in effect. As a sidenote is it a good deal for those who want to 'transfer' to a current licence from a legacy one and gain access to the new versions. Its not always available to all legacy holders afaik. Regarding renews, its easier to just not have any card details on file to stop this if that is what is required.
  5. vb5 cloud to IPB4

    Just to add a little as its the VB 'cloud' they offer you'd need to tell them you wish to have the database and uploads. IIRC in 5 the uploads are stored in the filesystem not the database, which does make things a bit easier conversion wise. They will not give you the core files but you do not need them, all you require is your database backup and the contents of any uploads ie post attachments and profile pictures for example, then you have all you need to 'convert' to IPS. Once you have these from them, you're finished with VB side of it. You may have to as Rhett has said submit a ticket, its also possible you'll need another database temporarily to import the VB database to, so your IPS install can read from it. A tech will explain what is needed in the ticket anyway.
  6. I've been asked a couple of times about legacy version support, the answer is yes but *only* in this forum in a topic not via PM or other method.

      And not lower than 2x please

  7. 3.5.x series

    That sounds a sensible thought. It would be worth asking to see if anyone can assist.  
  8. Resorting as client

    That's great to hear. Welcome
  9. cPanel access is crucial

    A simple usage bar would be an idea I guess, not too dissimilar to what Cpanel has but displayed in the Client Area under that package.
  10. Resorting as client

    Hello, I'm sorry to hear of the delay. Accounts / Billing tends to be Mon-Fri although support is 24/7, just some other departments are not. Having said that there is usually someone around at the weekend to attend to any issues. I'd guess from your current group (you're showing as a 'visitor') your payment has not been approved yet otherwise it would normally say '+Client' One common cause of this is using a different account on here compared to the Client Area (in effect that account) but you say you have already checked that. Unfortunately you just need to wait a little while until a member of staff can check your purchase / ticket and proceed with it for you. Thank you for your continued patience!
  11. Buying Application/Hook without License?

    Welcome! You would of needed a licence to in effect legally obtain the 'core' as such even if you wanted to run say just core + third party app only.
  12. 3.5.x series

    Similar thoughts were also aired when the first 3x versions appeared from those who wanted to stay with 2x... I would say if you wanted to stay with the 3x series to ensure you are running the latest version at least, that's currently 3.4.8 There's no mass hurry to update to 4x as 34x will remain supported for a while yet, it goes EOL 1st April 2017, so that's quite a way away...  
  13. Questions Prior to Purchasing.

    Hello, 1. I'm assuming you mean a cloud purchase. At purchase time you specify a subdomain and have a choice of domains such as (yourchoice) at , there is nothing to stop you having any combo here though for instance qwerty12345 at invisionzone for instance. The URL can be changed to your own domain if you wish. Note this involves a little more than just updating the DNS, basically you would simply submit a ticket to hosting who will make the changes on their end, then you'd update your DNS 2. You can purchase domain names from a lot of companies, including here: 3. I don't (think) you are permitted to have custom code on an IPS server that is outside the allowed framework ie an IPS type application either official or third party (such as from the Marketplace here) although a staff member can answer this with up to date information for you.  
  14. Car Fan Sickness

    I'm not really familiar with weather patterns 'over there' but I'm sure there are other car people here who can assist with the best ideas for preservation.  
  15. The chat app, bad or good for the forum?

    I think a lot of this will depend on the community itself. Chat (like Shoutbox) is good for random smalltalk and suchlike if members want to chat about things and you do not have suitable offtopic areas and / or the community does not have an area for just 'random chat' Having said that a lot of things posted in Shoutbox/Chat are just that ie smalltalk and not in most cases worthy of a topic anyway. Just gives members somewhere for their random ramblings I guess.
