    This is a custom .htaccess to use on the IPS Community Suite Forums. It helps to improve your forums Google Page Speed and YSlow scores. The top segment is the same .htaccess that is generated by the IPS Forum software. This segment is Invision Power Services code and I do not claim it as my own. All rights and credit for this segment of the .htaccess are Invision Power Services. The bottom segment is based upon research of several websites and the references listed below. Please be careful when using this file because the contents may be incompatible with your server setup. Preventative measures have been taken to ensure that it should be safe to use in any Apache based environment. Warning: If you have customized your .htaccess file you will want to make the necessary edits to add the code included in the .htaccess file found in this package. When you make updates be sure to remind users to clear their cache. You can also refer them to this URL for instructions on how to do clear their cache: https://wiki.lunarsoft.net/wiki/Clearing_browser_cache Google recommends a minimum of one week: https://developers.google.com/speed/docs/insights/LeverageBrowserCaching GTmetrix recommends a minimum of one month: https://gtmetrix.com/leverage-browser-caching.html Best of luck, Tarun https://www.lunarsoft.net

  2. Once again, we're very sorry for the restoration of your database and the subsequent 12-16hrs of data loss. As you cited this isn't your primary concern, however, I'd like to address your others. Based on your description of interaction from a support standpoint, I was quite surprised to find you've only had 7 total support tickets since you signed up in 2011. All but 2 were resolved within 24 hours, most within a matter of a few hours. The only exception to this that I could find is your upgrade ticket. I assume this is also the ticket you're trying to reply to. The ticket is over a month old and as we didn't receive a reply from you in that time, it auto-resolves. We do not permit you to respond to old tickets as typically, if a ticket is being replied to after that amount of time, it's usually a new issue. While finding an old e-mail and replying may seem more convenient on the surface, it can also lead to lengthy delays and substantial confusion. Your last issue may have been escalated to advanced support or development or even customer service -- the new issue is most likely (from our experience) unrelated so it has to be moved around to the appropriate department. Further, reading through 2 pages of previous correspondence on an issue unrelated to the current one frankly slows us down. It's always best to submit one ticket per incident so it can get routed and organized accordingly. Regarding telephone support - we discontinued phone support long before you were a client, so you would have been aware of the fact we do not provide phone support when you signed up. We offered it for several years in the early to mid 00's and found it to be counterproductive and resource intensive. While less than 5% of our clients phoned in, it consumed the lion share of our support resources with little gain to the client as most issues end up in a support ticket regardless. The upgrade, for example... we can't upgrade your site while you wait on the phone. So, while we could dedicate resources to allowing you to phone in to say "I want to upgrade" - there's still a queue of upgrades and it can't happen while we place you on hold. The same principle applies to live chat as well. It's certainly not unusual for companies these days to provide online only support, but nonetheless, I understand the frustration -- when you have an issue, you want it resolved now and we understand that. While it may be an inconvenience and we apologize for same, it is really best to simply login to www.invisionpower.com/clients - you cannot e-mail into support directly for a multitude of reasons, most importantly security. I don't see any active tickets on your account, so if you're having an issue, you have to let us know about it via the proper medium so we can assist. It's a bit unreasonable to label support atrocious, horrible and destructive when you're not actually using it. If you're not able to login to the client area for whatever reason, or to contact customer service for other reasons, please feel free to e-mail accounts@invisionpower.com. Again, if you're trying to e-mail support@invisionpower.com directly, you're not going to be able to. Support requests must be submitted via the client area. If you have further questions or concerns on your account, please contact customer service or you're welcome to PM or e-mail me directly and I'll do my best to assist.

    Big issues Browser caching (apparently your images are not cached) Combine images into a sprite sheet (in your case, the smilies for chat apparently primarily - which IPS does not natively support easily) You have a 3.4MB resized GIF image being served on the main page. You have a lot of emoticons being displayed on your main page being resized via CSS (some being displayed multiple times with multiple sends since there is no caching - plus having them in sprites would resolve some of this but IPS doesn't support sprites for the smiles easily - YAWP of IPS). Here is your site compared to my landing page (using Pages) and the forums index in GT Metrix https://gtmetrix.com/compare/RFotkAQe/f8JJqmhh/RIK2i2I3

  5. I am very sorry you experienced some data loss on your community. I can certainly understand how frustrating that must be for you and do not blame you for being upset. The issue you are reporting is the first time in years we have had any sort of data issues like that and we are just as frustrated as you over the issues. We host thousands of communities and take pride in what is normally a very reliable service. Telephone support is not something we have offered for many years. Again, I am sorry for your recent problems and understand your frustration. I do hope that this one-time data issue does not impact your overall enjoyment of your community. Please do submit a ticket to customer service if you want to talk about your specific account issues.

  6. Hello, Please show a nicely sized "record image" in the: Listing Template - currently does not show record image. A record image can be used to quickly distinguish between records when all the text is fairly similar, like a directory of names. I personally think an avatar-sized icon would be perfect. Article template - I've submitted a bug report. Vertical images cause deformed layout. If you need justification as to why: The functionality was included in v3.4 Pictures are Pretty

  7. Upgrade from IP. 3.4.x to IPS4.0 I am bringing this back again seeing there are still many that want to know how to upgrade. This is an updated version from my original post where the upgrade is explained from start to finish. So you think you are ready to take the plunge and try a test install / upgrade from your current IP Board to the current IPS4.0 beta and later to the final release. Well we will see. {Comment} The following steps are with the assumption you have already created a test install of your current board and made all the preparations leaving your current live board intact. If Not then see the following article. Creating a Duplicate Local Test board from you Live Board. at the bottom of this article. Step One. 1st, Download and run Get Ready For IPS 4.0 1.0.3 to test your current install to see if it is in fact ready. you can get your copy here. http://community.invisionpower.com/files/file/7046-get-ready-for-ips-40/ OK! all is green and good to go then skip the next step and continue on. But you are showing errors that need to be fixed. OK it's not the end of the world so there is no need to find a cliff or skyscraper to jump from. Download and run IPS UTF8 Database Converter 1.1.13 you can get it here. http://community.invisionpower.com/files/file/6823-ips-utf8-database-converter/ Run the converter and let it do its thing, it will take a while. When this is finished re run Get Ready For IPS 4.0 1.0.3 to make sure all previous errors are fixed. If so we can go forward if not now you can find that cliff or skyscraper. NO Just Kidding!!! But you may want contact support with any errors. Step Two. 1st, Make a backup of your Database call it whatever you like as long as you know where to go if the need comes up. 2nd, Here is a trick I use on my local due to a few corrupt downloads that failed causing me to start a test installs from scratch. 1, Create a _347 folder in your root directory and move all your files into it. Another backup you say? Yep! To go along with the above database backup should something go south on you. 2, Providing you have IP.Downloads copy these files back to your Forum Root Directory from the _347folder. Copy the following folders, downloads, public, screenshots and uploads along with your conf_global.php file. Otherwise only public, uploads and conf_ global.php will due. 3, Copy all the files from the IPS4.0 zip file you downloaded from your clients center to your new test install directory. From your browser go to your test install site http://example.com/admin/upgrade/ and begin the upgrade process.......... Go to Site! If the upgrader asks for your license key, add it but remember to use -TESTINSTALL immediately after the license key. 1234567890-12345-123-12345-1234567890-TESTINSTALL Creating a Duplicate Local Test board from you Live Board. Setting up a test board for upgrade is fairly easy but time consuming. In this section of this Tutorial is a guide for those that have never attempted to create a backup test site of the original live site for upgrade compatibility or other testing purposes. For those of you creating a local test server on your own computer using server software like Wamp, Xampp or Mamp. Follow these easy steps. Make a duplicate copy of your forum site by downloading it via FTP Forum Root to a location on your PC. Now log into your cpanel, PhpMyAdmin and Export the compete associated database. In this example we will be using the Wamp environment. Copy your forum site files into your Wamp - www directory example (C:\wamp\www\test-forum) Go into Wamp via your browser PhpMyAdmin, create a new database and Import the newly saved database into it. In your forum directory C:\wamp\www\test-forum find your conf_global.php. In your conf_global.php settings you need to change these settings. $INFO['sql_database'] = 'original'; to $INFO['sql_database'] = 'new_db_name'; and $INFO['board_url'] = 'http://example.com/forum'; to $INFO['board_url'] = 'http://example.com/test-forum'; And the same with the sql user if needed. $INFO['sql_user'] = 'tester'; Now go to the ACP System Settings - General Configuration make all pertinent changes to Path to 'upload' directory and Upload URL. You can find the hint to these new URL's below the text boxes for example: "IP.Board has detected your uploads path as: D:/wamp/www/test-forum/uploads" and IP.Board has detected your uploads url as: These changes will also need to be made in IP.Blog Settings and IP.Gallery if you have them. Go to System - Server Environment - Settings: Server Environment click on Update Settings. This will Sync your new server location settings in your new database. Next go to Look & Feel - Disable or remove all 3rd party skins. Go to Template Tools in the left side panel check all boxes under - Rebuild Master Skin Data click the Rebuild button. When this is finished click Recache Skin Sets after. Go back to System and Cache Management. Click on Rebuild Global Chaches Cache, Rebuild FURL Cache and then Recache ALL. Though some will say this is not necessary but trust me on this. Your IPS 4 upgrade will love you for doing these. Next back under System - Manage Applications & Modules - Disable all 3rd party Apps then click Recache Apps & Modules. Next step Manage Hooks - Disable all 3rd party hooks then click Reimport Application Hooks... Now lastly before doing the actual upgrade go back to your testboard front end via your browser and test to see if all is working correctly. Making sure it is an exact mirror to your live board. ***NOTE*** As you make these changes in the ACP and save each they are also saved in the new Database. (After creating a 3.4.7 test install and all is working....) ​Create a _347 backup folder move all the existing files into it. Thus creating a complete backup of the board you are working with. Do the same with your database by backing it up to another name like "new347-backup". You can do this in PhpMyAdmin. If you have IP.Downloads, you will want to copy (duplicate) the following folders from your _347 backup directory you just made back to your forum root. downloads, public, screenshots, uploads and conf_global.php. If you do not have IP.Downloads than all you need to copy back to the root is your public and uploads folders with the conf_global.php. So if your new forum root directory for the test upgrade is named "my-testboard" or "my-testboard.com" the above files need to be copied there. After this has been completed copy your latest IPS4 beta files you downloaded from the client center to the forum root "my-testboard" or "my-testboard.com" with the other files you just put there. Start the upgrade if it asks for your license key, add it but remember to use -TESTINSTALL immediately after the license key. 1234567890-12345-123-12345-1234567890-TESTINSTALL.

  12. Okay, I just found out the hard way that there is no way to UN-delete a post. I thought I was deleting a REPORT but apparently I deleted the POST. Uggh. If there any way to recover the post? I'm being accused of censorship and it was an honest mistake.

  13. You're last response further confirms why I'm running to another company. So now you engage in spin and tell half the story? What in the world does having 7 tickets since 2011 prove? What does resolving 5 of them within 24 hours have to do with taking days to even respond to others? You know, like me responding to a ticket on September the 8th and getting a response back on September the 14th?! Your response here is a classic example of how to further outrage a customer. If you had any semblance of customer service the first thing you would have done was contact me offline and ask how you could help. Instead you engage in spin.

Anyway I like the look of the two columns from @Afternowa and I hope some of the Coders will bring out an Addon like the known Sub-forum Managers for vB where you can set the number of columns, for which forum the sub-forums should be displayed or not etc. pp.

    Yes, the tier one automated reply "gate keepers" are extremely irritating when you're trying to get through to a developer. I'm in contact with Matt so if you compile as much information into a bug report as possible, I'll send it over to him so he can take a look. As this is (seemingly) out of my control, I feel quite helpless so I apologize for that.

    You will get some variance... depending on some factors involved. I'm betting your site is running under Apache. If you are on a shared hosting, it should be a simple matter of some .htaccess entries. I use nginx myself and run my own server. Something like ## EXPIRES CACHING ## <IfModule mod_expires.c> ExpiresActive On ExpiresByType image/jpg "access 1 year" ExpiresByType image/jpeg "access 1 year" ExpiresByType image/gif "access 1 year" ExpiresByType image/png "access 1 year" ExpiresByType text/css "access 1 month" ExpiresByType text/x-javascript "access 1 month" ExpiresDefault "access 2 days" </IfModule> ## EXPIRES CACHING ## in your htaccess will help with the expires/caching issue. The upgrading had nothing really to do with it... other than probably some display differences. The caching is a server (HTTP) issue.

  34. It would be an awesome feature to be able to select avatars and profile images that way that things don't have to be double uploaded if they are uploaded to the gallery. With this it would be awesome to have the option to "Only allow own images" or "Allow all" with a category option on whether the images can be used for avatars or profile headers. Just a consideration for the future. These options could be done universally with things like the Blog and the calendar as well.
