  1. This site. Can’t use browser back button

    I've never had the problem.
  2. What a Horrible Company You Have Become

    I don't disagree with you on this part, but IPS's stated policy is that the forum is strictly for peer-to-peer support. They stick to that. If you didn't open a ticket, it wasn't on their radar. e: I may be mistaken, I see Charles was talking specifically about the pre-sales forum. But I'm pretty sure that's true of the tech support board as well. They don't advertise it very well. Or at all.   @Hitori Bocchi I do ticket support as part of my job duties in a similar context. For technical matters, a ticket system is the only way to go. Phones are far less efficient (I could often fix an urgent problem in less time than it takes to even figure out on the phone what's wrong), and they sap someone's attention for the entire duration of that call, which probably won't even result in immediate resolution. There's a place for a human voice to be sure, but it's a huge drain of resources, which means they'd have to raise their rates a lot if they were going to make a concerted effort toward it. I'm not defending the way they do things, but tickets allow them to cover the most ground with the fewest staff. As for forums, they work great right up until you're dealing with confidential info, at which point you're off to a ticket anyway. Outside of feature questions (how do I do this?), almost everything is going to involve credentials or site info of one kind or another.
  3. Discouraging

    When did that change? That really doesn't sound like a bright idea.
  4. Add tags to topics

    As @BomAle mentioned, you might consider my Advanced Tags app. It adds multimod (stored actions) support for tags and prefixes to 4.0. Nothing of the sort is built in. All the best.
  5. I think they all bill on the same period regardless, but they will not prorate you for the time left in the billing period. They do that to avoid people buying the whole suite, then canceling and only renewing addon products right at the end of the period for cheap updates.That's how it was, anyway. May have changed.
  6. I'm no longer a client?

    I don't think it works that way.There are perks to keeping your license current. The badge, updates, and no nag banner are among them.
  7. Advanced Tags & Prefixes

    It's been available for almost two months now.You can buy the IPS 4.x-compatible version here: https://community.invisionpower.com/files/file/7614-advanced-tags-prefixes/
  8. This is a must have on the modern web. My site is moving to VRBoard if this isn't in 4.1.For 4.2, I'm hoping people can use VR headsets like oculus to browse the forums and "wave" at other users.
  9. Board Testing XAMPP VS WAMP

    I like UniServer, personally. Portable, and easy interfaces.
  10. App. As Kevin said, the app is out, for both 3.x and 4.x. It'll let you do what you want. Thanks guys.
  11. Showcases IPB using prefixes

    My site here is running IP.Board 3.x, plus my 'advanced tags' app for colored prefixes. Functionally, it should be pretty close to what you will get whether you're looking at IPS 4.0 or an older version. We don't use tags heavily, but some are there as well. http://forums.zybez.net/forum/202-questions-money-making/
  12. Version 3.1.2


    Do you feel limited by the tag system or prefixes?   This application enhances IPS 4's built-in tag and prefix system. It adds custom styling and fine-grained control over prefixes, plus new settings, enhancements, and helpful moderation tools. Prefixes are explicitly created through the Admin CP, and can be chosen from a separate prefix dropdown when creating a topic or other prefix-enabled content.   But let's be realistic: You want to be sure before you commit to something, especially like this. You want a complete, tested, proven solution that does exactly what it says. This does. You can trust me. I'm a professional web developer, and I've been working with IP.Board for more than six years. I will always try to make sure you're taken care of. I follow all IPS coding standards and best practices, and I don't encode my resources in any way. You can trust this application. It's been around since July 2010, for IP.Board 3.1. It was the most-purchased resource for IP.Board 3, used on more than a thousand communities like yours, and among the best-rated plugins on the marketplace. You can read the reviews for yourself. This version for 4.x builds on that experience, and it's better than ever. Buy with confidence.   Feature list: Define all prefixes manually through the Prefix Manager--even for open-tag systems. Show common tags and prefixes across your site with the Tag Cloud Widget. Add, fix, merge, and remove tags and prefixes in bulk through the Tag Manager. Choose a prefix when posting any prefix-enabled content, separate from tags. Control where and how tags and prefixes are displayed. Add custom HTML formatting to your prefixes, allowing colors, images, and much more. Limit prefixes by member group and location. Require a prefix in certain forums*. Add tags and prefixes to topics in bulk with Saved Actions or the Mass-Add tool. Apply a prefix to topics imported from RSS. Set a default prefix and tags for all new topics in a forum*. Override the global tag settings by forum*. This lets you enter custom tags in some forums and not others, or change how many tags are required, or have a prefix option without any tags at all. Display topic prefixes in the page title, last post info, and as filters under each forum's description, if you want. ...and more. * These added settings should work for all tag-enabled content types. The focus of this application is Forums and topics, but it also supports Calendar events and any other tag-enabled content. That being said, I cannot guarantee compatibility with all possible applications and circumstances.   This application is regularly maintained and updated. If you have an idea, post it in the support topic for consideration. This version is for IPS 4.x. If you are running IP.Board 3.4 or earlier, try the 3.x-compatible version.   By purchasing, you agree to the software license terms, in addition to any terms imposed by IPS or the IPS Marketplace.   Thanks!


  13. Topic counter bug

    The bug tracker is here: http://community.invisionpower.com/4bugtrack/You're welcome to report it there if it hasn't been already. And if you want help fixing it before then, open a support ticket.
  14. Tagging settings per-forum instead of global

    ​I finished it yesterday, it should be available within two weeks--just waiting on some testing. Feature set is exactly the same as it was for 3.x. You can override tag mode on a per-forum basis.
  15. Prefixes - an add-on

    ​For what it's worth, my app allows you to use prefixes with or without tags (on forums). If you want colored prefixes only, you can do that. A 4.0 version will be released soon.I can't speak for IPS's plans, of course.
