    I hear what you're saying. But, if someone makes the decision that they are disabling/removing Gallery/Content/Blogs from their community, then they should be able to just renew their license for the Forums. IPS just doesn't give that option or state anywhere that they could request just a renewal for Forums, etc. I think that IPS bunched them altogether to make it less work for them to worry about. I know that it was never lumped altogether like that until 4.x was released. Back when 3.x was around, you were able to renew your licenses separately for each app/addon. Clients were already aware that they couldn't run their older version of Gallery on a newer version of the forums.

    There used to be a third party addon for this feature I'm about to ask for but I think that IPS should add the option for administrators to restrict PM messages for usergroups until they reach a certain number of posted messages or responses on the forums. Sometimes you run into the problem where someone new to your community will register for an account and instead of posting on the forums, they send a barrage of personal messages to forum staff or the general members in some weird advertising campaign. I actually had this happen before where someone signed up for an account and sent unsolicited PMs to members on my site without posting a single message.
    It's a problem that I think I'm not the only one who has experienced this.

    Rheddy got a reaction from Cannabis Connect in Everybody is choosing "Night Mode" nowadays....   
    Personally, I like the idea of a "dark mode" and it's something that IPS should consider. Why? Because, like a lot of people out there, I suffer from eye strain. My eyes are sensitive to bright light so having a dark mode is much easier and more relaxing on my eyes. Many people suffer from this. But, I also think that this is something that should be offered on the front end where the end user can select the option through their user account.
    Keep in mind that I don't think it should be added just because "everyone else is using it". But, only from the perspective that it would make for a more comfortable experience for the end users. Eye strain is a major problem in just about every country out there whose people surf the internet these days. I look at it more as an "accessibility" issue rather than "just because everyone else doing it".

    Going off what Jim M said, once you remove a license for an addon, but you only retain the license for Forums, then you wouldn't be able to use those addons that you removed from your license once you upgrade Forums simply because the previous installed versions would not be compatible with the new version of the forum software. Uninstalling it from your community would be the only option you could have available to you. This is because you wouldn't be able to use Forums 4.4.1 while still having Gallery 4.2.x installed, it would be akin to pouring sugar into your gas tank ... you wouldn't like the end result. 😂

    I hear you. But, the way I understand it now, once you have initially purchase a license for, say, Forums, Gallery, and Content ... that IPS' renewal system no longer allows you to renew your license for only those apps or addons that you want. That ever since IPS 4.x was released, that the "suite" is simply lumped into a single download. Far as I'm aware, there's no way to separate the individual IPS apps. I know you used to be able to select and choose which IPS apps you wanted to renew but it's no longer that way.
    I wasn't aware that you could simply contact Support and tell them you just want to renew "Forums". Oh, and once you let your license lapse, then renew it at a later date, IPS' client portal doesn't allow you to send a support ticket for any inquiry, you actually have to renew first, before you can send a support ticket inquiry. It's one thing I discovered a few days ago when I renewed after my last renewal period in 2018 went by. I typically renew about once per year since my expenses are limited due to my disability.

    Rheddy got a reaction from SJ77 in Why you don't collect data on configurations used on our ins   
    Well, when it comes to the IPS software, as long as it's not too intrusive, it doesn't matter with me what IPS does, providing that they aren't violating any privacy laws in the process. It's one reason why I refuse to use Cloudflare services. When signing up for their services, they actually require you to allow them to investigate any person involved with your website and I found their Terms of Service to go far beyond what an online service should be able to do. While I'd love to use their services, I found their Terms of Service to be very unacceptable behavior for an online service.
    Thankfully, IPS' Terms of Service isn't THAT restrictive because Cloudflare represents how bad ideas can corrupt a business entity.

    Rheddy got a reaction from orp in IPS Navigation Menu (IPS 4.1.9) Question   
    I noticed that the new navigation menu that IPS uses, and I assume that it's for IPS 4.1.9, doesn't feature the annoying mouse-over menu (which has become an increased annoyance for my community). I recently upgraded to IPS 4.1.9 but my upgrade is still using the same "mouse-over" navigation menu from 4.1.8. I'm wondering if this was included with the IPB 4.1.9 upgrade or if it's customized just for the IPS support forums.

    Beta testing is actually publicly done
    You can already do this, disable the module for the groups you don't want access to (Applications > System > Messaging) I assume this is based on the same setting for post editing > Can Edit Own Content You can limit it on a per day or per minute basis, this is under the group settings. A little more settings wouldn't hurt though.

    Rheddy got a reaction from Rikki in IPS Navigation Menu Feedback   
    @Rikki, well, when I scroll down through the topic, the Navigation Menu remains fixed at the top of the browser page. Sort of like a static sidebar that moves with you as you scroll down a website page. It happens on my modified IPS Forum Skin and it does the same on an unmodified forum skin. I haven't been able to explain it. I noticed it when I upgraded to IPS 4.2. I've tried installing various free forum skins and it's the same thing. The only thing I can say is that this "static" floating navigation menu seems to present itself on any forum skin I install.

    2019? We'll be on IPS 7.2 by then! 
    I'm kidding, but 4.3 is underway and we should start talking about it in coming weeks. 
    Without too many spoilers, the focus for 4.3 is largely engineering and refinement. Gallery, clubs, search, etc.

    @Ramsesx, IPS 4.3 has not been released. Don't expect it to be released until late 2019. IPS doesn't even have a copy of it for themselves to use. IPS 4.2 has only recently been released as a final version. I expect that they won't start working on IPS 4.3 until late next year. Don't expect 4.3 until around late Fall of 2019.

    IPS rarely gives updates where it concerns maintenance patches. They give updates when it concerns a new feature or a major change to a feature. I've been a licensed user of IPS products since 2005 and I can tell you that upgrades are the only things that IPS gives updates on, never maintenance patches, until they are ready to be released. Maintenance patches, security releases, I've never seen them given an official update post on the site unless it's to announce that a new patch has been released.
    LOLS. HAHA
