IP.Board 3.4 Coming Soon

We are nearly ready to release the supported version of IP.Board 3.4 and are very excited to get this great new release out to you.

Beta Testing

We are currently doing a public beta test of IP.Board 3.4. If you are comfortable testing pre-release software please consider testing and letting us know any bugs you might find. You can find the pre-release on our forums but you will need to login as an active IPS Client to access. The more people who test our beta releases the better for everyone!

What's New

Please read these blog entries for a full list and explanation of what's new in this release.


In addition to the specifics in the blog entries we have fixed many issues and made many smaller improvements.

New Backup Service Delayed

We had announced a new Backup Service however this service will be not be available at release time. We want to be sure the service works reliably and would rather delay a bit than give you something that may not work properly. Obviously something as important as backups on your community is something we want to feel confident about offering.


Depending on how our beta testing goes we hope to release IP.Board 3.4 by the end of November. If you are comfortable testing we encourage you to do so so we can be sure this release is as stable as possible. Thank you!

How much tweaking will skins require? I'm not very savvy when it comes to these things.

Glad to see a Best Answer Feature finally included, I've been requesting this for quite awhile and on many other community solutions too.

Skins will need to be updated to reflect the addition of the Best Answer feature. If you have a custom skin and the HTML of the topic view or post bit was modified then it's likely that the Best Answer feature won't work properly for you until you've updated your skin.

 

Aside from that the only change in skins that I know of will be bug fixes. 3.4 was very backend focused.

Is there a section where we can simplify some Moderator functions?  For instance, the merging of unapproved/delete to "hide" now makes Moderators have to click 3 times to hide a post & make the post content viewable to Moderators - the ability to change the default settings to have the post content by default viewable to Moderators would make this a 2-click process.   Not a big deal for small volume Forums, but in Forums where you have thousands of posts a day, and you get dozens of hidden posts, giving these abilities to save steps is a huge help.

 

Will post a Feedback thread, too - just getting the word out.

^^ Nope, just the title, then scroll right past the entry to ask the question raised by the title and answered in the entry in comments. -.-

 

Sometimes it gets annoying, but you learn to live with it and just answer since its inevitable that people will never listen -_-

Please add the buttons social networks for Retina users!
For example this page (sorry, but this is not an advertisement, just a good example), you can clearly see the difference between your buttons, which also is in beta 3.4.0 and those that are available on this site.
