  1. IPS iCalendar Feed Imports do not support complex recurrence patters yet unfortunately. For example, our Parent Teacher Organization has meetings on the third Tuesday of each month with start and end dates set at the beginning and end of the school year.. We use a Google Calendar for these meetings in addition to our events and fundraisers. Google Calendar allows these sorts of complex repeatable patterns but when importing from our Google Calendar to IPS, our meetings are not imported. We're trying to automate as much as possible to reduce work time. Please, please consider adding this f
  2. That did the trick for both locations. I'll make a note of this so I hopefully don't forget. Thank you!
  3. Thank you for your reply. Unfortunately, I can't find anything like that under "Support". The closest thing I can find is "Cache sidebar, header and footer blocks For x seconds" under "Advanced Configuration" > "Server Environment". Mine is only set for 300 seconds so it should have updated by now but it hasn't. And I still can't find a way to flush the entire cache. My "Caching Method" is set to "- No caching -".
  4. I hope this is a relevant place to post this. I'm using a stock calendar block and a custom Page that show calendar events from an iCalendar feed that I have setup in the back-end. I thought there was a problem with the calendar not syncing with my Google calendar, but Invision's calendar system seems to update. However, the stock calendar block and my custom Page do not. Does anyone have any insights on how to clear the cache for these? Thank you. 🙂 Edit: Opening and resaving the custom Page doesn't seem to push a cache update.
  5. Hello. I'm looking for a way to add a predefined checkbox list of tags in the form for creating a new topic. The tags included in the checkbox list would be dependant on which subforum a member is posting to. Is that possible with this Template System? Thank you.
  6. Some tags we used with the old Topic Descriptions were pretty common, so many of the most common ones I could do that way. Can you use the mass-add tool with text searches of Topic Descriptions, though?
  7. That would be amazing. It looks like I have found someone willing to help me get the old Topic Descriptions converted to Tags but it'll be a mess without an easy way to divide them into separate tags afterwards. Thank you! In the mean time, can you think of any easy-ish alternative ways to accomplish this?
  8. I'm trying to find a way to convert the old IPB Topic Descriptions into tags since that's basically what we used that for. But if I ever do, I'll need to find a way to then change those into multiple tags from single tags since we didn't use commas. I tested splitting a single tag into two tags in your "Manage Tags" tool by adding a comma but it didn't work. Is there a way to add this functionality easily-ish? Thank you!
  9. It looks like CheapAssGamer.com is using a forum wiki system. Does anyone know how they're accomplishing this? They seem to be currently using IPB 3.4.5. Here is an example: https://www.cheapassgamer.com/topic/350835-black-friday-2015-video-game-deals-master-thread/
  10. Thank you. What a bummer. I've looked but I've been unable to find anything that will do this for IPB. Do you know of anything?
  11. I would also love to know the answer to this. More specifically, is there a way for new topics to automatically have a second wiki style post created in select subforums like SlickDeals and FatWallet has?
  12. I would like to do the same thing for a client's site. He wants to be able to see the feedback info from all parts of the site where you get the profile box on hover-over. Thank you. :)
  13. Thank you. :smile: Doh! Kind of saw that as i was going to bed last night. Normally I pay better attention before reading. I was too sleepy, I guess. Sorry. I was looking for something that would integrate into our site a bit more but I appreciate having this option. :) Thank you again! :smile:
