  1. Surprised this thread reanimated. Yeah I gave up on this back in 2017, I am doing the same thing I am doing for IP Content Databases. I create .CSV files, and then use AutoHotKey to form fill this information into IPB. Here is some sample code you guys can modify however you see fit. The code example is for IPContent, but you can change it around to click and fill in form data from CSV files for IP Commerce. EDIT: This one is Tab Delimited, because some of my fields had commas in them. Loop, read, C:\Temp\MyData.txt { StringSplit, LineArray, A_LoopReadLine, %A_Tab% name := LineArray1 month := LineArray2 year := LineArray3 Run http://www.mysite.com/magazines?do=add&category=286 Sleep 7000 Click 390, 633 SEND %name% SEND {TAB} SEND %month% SEND {TAB} SEND %year% SEND {ENTER} Sleep 7000 SEND !{F4} Sleep 7000 } You can add variables under the year line to accommodate more fields. just add more LineArrays like LineArray4....etc. The SEND !{F4} sends a close program to Firefox, Chrome, Edge, you can easily modify to just do a backspace or a new click to continue the script. Really powerful for getting info into IPB! Saved me countless hours creating thousands of records.
  2. I have not run IPB Arcade, Casino and Attack system since the 2.x days of IPB. I would also pay to get them back, as I lost them when I went to 3.x
    Seems to work at the level directly above, but not at a level higher up. So for instance...... Parent Category (empty) |___Sub Category (empty) |____Populated Category (full) So the items from Populated will show up to the Empty Sub Cat, but it would be nice if they went up to the top most level, that way you could see everything new that had been submitted below. EDIT: The above is now fixed....and I say......
  3. In the event of my death, my wife has been instructed how to forward my domain to this video.....
  4. I second this, if the default ip fields could be expanded it would be great. Maybe a field to bring forward images out of the IP Gallery, a field to bring download links out of the IP Downloads. I would love a contributor field that would sort of function like "Who's Online" but rather it would show "Who's Contributed" to a IP Database record.
  5. Sorry I should have clarified, I have comments turned off on my IP Databases. I am looking for the last person who has made a edit to a record to show up in the database view. All my databases have the wiki feature turned on, and I want to see all my members who are editing records.
  6. Yeah, I want my members avatars and names to show up in the Databases, rather than my name and avatar just because I created the records. I think its more encouraging for my members to see their names and avatars all across the databases.
  7. I dont think that setting shows the member who last edited a record, I believe that setting only changes what constitutes an updatable action. So do you want new comments to trigger a record popping to the top of the recently changed, or do you want to require an edit to be made to the record to move it to the top. I am talking about giving members credit in the databases.
  8. I love the IP Content Databases, but I am not crazy about how it shows data fields that are less than desirable. So what do I mean, well I created almost 95% of the thousands of records in my IP Content Databases. However I don't want the credit for this. I created stub entries in my database, and when my members add information into those stub entries.......MY AVATAR and NAME show up! Here is an example.... As you can see I created this database record, and it shows my Avatar and Username, however if you drill into the Database record and look at the record...... You can see one of my members was the last person to update that record. If we are already showing the correct "Updated Timestamp", lets also show who actually was the last member in that record. I want my members getting the credit, not me! It gets worse for the Widgets in my IP Content Databases.....lets look at how those are handled..... You can see that just creating a simple feed, its again showing the record authors name and avatar, and it shows the record creation date, which just looks odd. I dont want people thinking the last time that record was updated was 2016.....again if we drill into the record we can see..... Here you can see that record was updated 45 minutes ago and by a different member. If I have to hire someone to fix this, I will do so.....but I really think we should have an option in these areas to give us a bit more control over what data is presented to the public. I want my members to get credit, and I want the updated timestamps to show....not the creation ones. Just my 2 cents 😛
  9. Actually just found a mod that seems to cover this for me 🙂 https://www.devfuse.com/products/88-downloads-ftp-mirror/ Posting in case anyone else was up against the same issue.
  10. What is the IPB recommended method for cleaning up our sites? I know when I look in my database, that I see IPB Arcade, IPB Casino, IPB Battle systems from back when I was running IPB 2.x. Is there a comparison tool that could point out non default tables and fields for us to evaluate? Same with IPB files, is there any tool that could run a comparison and tell me what differences there are between a default install and my file structure?
  11. I wish it were easy too! 😛 Nothing does prevent me from uploading a stray file into my IP Gallery datastore location, but if I do and the software deletes it because of house keeping, I bet I will learn my lesson and create a directory for oddball stuff With the medium and thumb gallery images, I am trying to figure out if I can delete them. I am that IPB end user that has been with you guys for 13 years, I know just enough to be dangerous . So I went into my database to see if I could find where these calls to the ORIG, LARGE, and SMALL versions are being called. I believe I found them in this table and with these fields. I am not sure if this is the ONLY place image locations are defined. SELECT `image_id`,`image_caption`,`image_masked_file_name`,`image_file_name`,`image_original_file_name`,`image_small_file_name` FROM `ibf_gallery_images` So that command gives me back this CSV, and I will just post one line ..... 123 Nintendo Power Issue 010 (January/February 1990) monthly_2018_09/large.gallery_3_81439.jpg.3036d908e052b23282e07556f969f32f.jpg np-9001.jpg 1253818241/gallery_3_81439.jpg monthly_2018_09/small.gallery_3_81439.jpg.20c859a49d9bf00ff7975267ab398e1f.jpg Now here is the kicker, I downloaded my IP Gallery datastore, and I can find only the item in green, not red. So I am confused why I can't find the large.gallery or small.gallery files, even though they are defined, I am wondering if these somehow still point back to the old medium and small versions. I thought that the image_file_name was only in the database to rename the file back when it is downloaded again, but the response I just got from that ticket suggests otherwise. If I could figure out what images are called, I could write a script to tell me exactly what files are not being referenced and delete them from my FTP (after backing up).
  12. Was more or less thinking of a backup data store location, where if IP Downloads could not reach the first datastore, it knew to look to the second one.
