    Rheddy got a reaction from AndyF in Best forum support ever!   
    What you should also remember is that IPS Customer Support's response also depends on how many requests are in the queue. Chances are that there weren't many customer support tickets and you happened to be at the top of the list. :thumbsup:

    I would suggest we use the feedback section for any new ideas, this topic has seemed to drift to an off topic discussion lol (thanks wolfie) ;)

    I have to admit that the attached profile card to each post does look like crap. Prior to IPB 3, the profile card used to be better organized. It's one of the biggest complaints that I have with the IPB 3 series. It would be nice if the profile card were better aligned, instead of just centering everything that appears in that mini profile.

    With the proliferation of topics regarding how to combat spammers, I thought to create a guide for members on how to fight this phenomenon. The one thing everyone should be aware of is that you cannot stop spammers from registering. The only thing you can do is put roadblocks that slow down their activity. I've decided to put together this list on what you can do to prevent spammers from finishing their registration. I decided to create this guide since so many clients are asking for how to prevent spammers from breaking through registration (and because I simply got tired of answering the same question). :lol:
    enable reCaptcha use the IPS anti-spam feature enable the Question and Answer challenge and customize the challenge for your community; don't use simplified Q&As like 'what is 2+2" enable "user email validation" or user email validation and admin validation" install the plugin, Stop Spammer Registration (requires API key from the Stop Forum Spam website, free registration) install the plugin, >Miserable Users (premiuim plugin, can be configured to block spammers from accessing your forums if they manage to complete registration) Please note that I have used these methods, with the exception of Miserable Users, and I have had a 100% success rate in preventing spammers from completing their registration. While I can't guarantee you that 100%, it has been very effective to me in using these methods in halting spammers on my community. Oh, and I don't use "User and Admin Validation" because I found these other options to be most effective.

    I hope this guide helps you in fighting against spammer registrations.

    Thanks, Andy. Marketplace sellers should really keep their code updated. Simply adding a descriptor that says "compatible with 3.4.3" is just cheating. While I had this skin installed prior to the upgrade to the IPB 3.4 upgrade, the skin simply will have problems if you do a fresh install after you upgrade.

    Ths skin should be properly updated within the skin, not simply be relabeled within the marketplace description as "3.4.3 compatible". While it may work for you if it was already installed prior to 3.4.3 before you upgraded, it might not be for others who are attempting to inistall it. It's just cheating when all you're doing is changing the marketplace description for it without updating the skin code for 3.4.3. lols

    I'm a firm supporter of IPS. While IPS has a lot of clients, I've been using the IPB forum software since version 1.3 (final) was released, back when it was still offered as a free software option with webhosting services through Fantastico. I just find these topics to be negative and they don't fall under feedback when you have a topic title like "Invision Going Downhill". Unless you have access to their sales data and other financial information, it's all just speculation and guesswork.

    Rheddy got a reaction from GroovyMotion in Custom Block Creation in Hooks Management   
    I've been trying to figure this one out but I've been wondering why IPS hasn't added custom block create for IPB, much like how you can create custom blocks in IP.Content. After trying to figure out the Custom Sidebar Block plugin, and discovering that the plugin doesn't allow for exported blocks to work wtithin the hook management center, I had fiddled around and realized that "parse block" commands created through IP.Content, can be added in the skin code and IPB will import IP.Content blocks.

    However, the lack of of the ability to create custom blocks for the sidebar in IPB hooks/plugin management doesn't allow for this.

    When you go into hooks management, it should be simple to be able to create a custom block (similar to how blocks are created in IP.Content) and then that would allow you to move or place your new block wherever you want to within the sidebar.

    Rheddy got a reaction from Liz K. in IPB Support Forums keep Crashing?   
    Lindy is correct. There is nothing that IPS can do about this and contrary to the belief, HARRY POTTER does not exist and I doubt even he could stop a DDoS attack.

    It's a fact that "internet traffic", no matter how it's used, often takes down a multitude of sites. I've experienced this myself with my own webhost as they conduct periodic maintenance. But, rather than piss and moan about it, all I can do is open up a support ticket so that they are aware of the problem. Complaining about it won't help and neither will blaming the IPS staff for something that is out of their control.
