  1. Would it be against TOS here to collaborate on what all we have, comparing and sharing? I seem to have about 700 games myself.
  2. As someone who had the 2.x Arcade, does this one pick up anything from that older system? Will those old Flash games work, I think I still have them in a folder on my site.
  3. 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 :=
  4. 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......
  5. In the event of my death, my wife has been instructed how to forward my domain to this video.....
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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...... Yo
  11. 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.
  12. 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?
  13. 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
  14. 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.
  15. An annoyance of IP Gallery that my members bring up, is when they upload multiple images, that they have to go image by image to chop off the .jpg or .png. It seems as though this is an unnecessary step for them, and some of my members are uploading 10-80 images at a time. Is there a reason why we just don't stop at the file name?
  16. Maybe I am the only one who wants this, but I recently moved all my IP Downloads to a separate server. This way no matter how hard that server gets hit, the forums will not suffer. The only issue is now when that server is down, no one can download So what I would like to do is bring up a secondary server that would be continuously mirror syncing the first server, and it would be nice if IP Downloads could fail itself over to the second server when the first is unreachable. I know someone will probably point out that I can do this with some premium DNS voodo, but I am trying to save
  17. I am going thru this right now, I feel as though my IP Gallery is bloated. Why? So back in this blog post.....we got this information. Which says the following.... Ok cool, so back a few versions ago we had Thumb, Small, Medium, Large and Original Gallery images. Now we are going to Small, Large, Original. So I should not see Medium or Thumb versions stored in my datastore location that has all my IP Gallery Images......so I download that directory and do a search.... Over 7000+ Thumb versions still exist....Ok lets look for Medium versions.......
  18. Any chance for a Opt in for seeing certain images/categories? I have some images that some might be offended by, but would like to give people the chance to opt in or out to see them
  19. @bfarber - Any chance 4.3 Gallery will tie into other IPB products more cleanly? If an image has been uploaded to the IPGallery, we should be able to use that image in IP Downloads and IPContent. I would really love to see a IP Gallery field type for IPContents Database fields. Right now I have to use the Medium image URL to bring Gallery images into my custom databases. Otherwise I have to ask my users to upload 11,000 duplicate copies of images with the attachment field type.
  20. Gallery Sorting Doesn't Work On Page Load #983081 (June 13, 2017) Gallery Sort by Title/Caption #985616 (July 26, 2017) Gallery Sorting (Third Time) #988619 (August 29, 2017) I have been bringing this up since I first noticed it. The long and short of it is I deal with publications, so Nintendo Power Issue 001 (July-August) 1989 should appear before Nintendo Power Issue 002 (September-October) 1989. This worked just fine before I went to IPB 4.x. Since then I have lost the ability to "DEFAULT" sort by Caption from the AdminCP. This means that when a member/guest goes into my
  21. So I have over 300+ Gallery categories and been smacking my head against the wall since "Sort by Caption" broke in 4.x. You are telling me that I have to sort 15-1000 images per category across 300+ categories with a GUI?
