  1. I'm trying to setup Cloudflare Teams to authenticate against my IPB's database. Cloudflare is asking for the following info: Client ID - In IPB, this is the Client Identifier Client secret - In IPB, this is the Client Secret Auth URL: In IPB, this is the Authorization Endpoint Token URL: In IPB, this is the Token Endpoint Certificate URL: UNKNOWN From their help docs, it says: "The jwks_uri endpoint of your IdP to allow the IdP keys to sign the tokens. You can find these values on your identity provider’s OIDC discovery endpoint. Some providers call this the well-known URL." Can you help me figure out what I should be entering as the certificate URL?
  2. If the plugin could be extended to allow more than just canned replies, it would absolutely make sense for my communities. Unfortunately I need a little more flexibility than just pre-selected templates.
  3. AMP is not directly supported by IPS. Charles made a comment about this at:
  4. Just an FYI so that someone can file a bug report... ACP > System > Integrations > VigLink When you choose the option to create a new account, it tries to launch a window taking the user to: https://www.viglink.com/users/convertAccount?subId=109411&key=79bd9386a12d9ac58a81d42672c87dc4&expiration=1636082093&signature=72e2b61779d9c3e894ca8affd3e08a9a I assume that is now supposed to be somewhere under "meridian.sovrn.com" now.
  5. Have you run that search as a guest? It’s possible it is an unauthenticated bot making the search.
  6. Cookies are used as part of banning. However they MUST be associated to the domain to be accessed so you can’t truly “hide” them. Just popping cache would remove them. Banning the username is typically much more effective than banning an IP, especially in the days of iCloud Private Relay, VPNs, mobile networks etc. In this case it does sound like an evasive member but instead a situation where existing tools would have been more simple to use and work effectively.
  7. You can link to the object itself simply by pasting the URL. For example, the above image was taken from the IPS homepage (https://sitecontent.invisioncommunity.com/client-logos/evernote.png). However it would not be an "attachment", meaning you find it in the "Other Media" section. If you have the Gallery product, you could add each of the images to a gallery and link to those potentially as well.
  8. There are times where things where capitalization or punctuation, or having a plural version could be in play. For example: "an IP address" "the IP addresses" The challenge is that the BASE language is English... meaning there are multiple strings to handle situations like the above. Different languages may not need all 20 of the variations, but because English is the base, you could end up with the same entry multiple times. English is the most backwards language in the world and breaks almost all of its own rules.
  9. When entering your key, did you add -TESTINSTALL at the end of the license number? See the following for details:
  10. IPS writes software. They don’t provide support for the underlying services that it runs on. If someone is not comfortable doing those sorts of things themselves, it is better to consider a hosted version of the software. Just because something technically works without going out of their way does not mean they have resources to support it when people need support around it Regarding nginx itself… the staff don’t use that as a development platform. That means they don’t know it to the same degree they do their primary environment. If they figure out how to do it, people will expect them to support other things related to it as well. They would also be expected to support it if someone can’t get it to work or it needs to be changed in a future version. It’s never “one and done”. Instead they are sticking with what they know. If someone wants to do something else and it works… great. But if you run into problems with it, you’re on your own getting your custom setup working.
  11. It’s funny how much people will complain until you offer them a solution. Then they just go silent. 😆
  12. There are a number of things you could do... Require the use of 2FA for any account that can access the admin area. Rename the admin directory to something more obscure. (/ugaboogatest) Use a separate .htaccess password for the admin folder. Limit access to the admin folder to only known/trusted IP addresses. Use a Zero Trust solution to limit access to the admin folder (such as Cloudflare Teams)
  13. I did not see a setting to disable forums themselves, but I did find where to disable topics, which might disable forums if no topics are allowed. ACP > System > Site Promotion > Search Engine Optimization > Sitemap UNCHECK "Use Recommended Settings". Scroll down to "Topics". UNCHECK "Include In Sitemap" Scroll to the bottom of the page and click "Save". Scroll to the top of the page and click "Rebuild Site Map". It should create a task to rebuild the site map. Once the task is complete, you should see the new results. Hopefully in addition to disabling indexing topics it would also disable the forums themselves as well with it.
  14. An AV software program is not going to protect against malicious scripts. Those don’t necessarily hurt the server itself. Instead look at a cloud based Web Application Firewall (WAF). Those are designed to look for layer 7 attacks such as SQL injection, XSS, LFI etc. There are several out there. One of the more popular ones is Cloudflare but they are not the only game in town. https://geekflare.com/cloud-waf-to-stop-website-attacks/
  15. When creating the CNAME, you want: Name: friendshipforums CNAME: o316083.invisionservice.com. I believe with cPanel you will need to add the the extra period at the end of the domain name (meaning "o316083.invisionservice.com." not "o316083.invisionservice.com").
  16. @Marc Stridgen would he need to rebuild system cache as well after this? I seem to recall needing to do that on my own board after changing the file system details. (But when I was doing it, I was moving from local file storage to an S3 bucket so not sure if it was just more related from that.)
  17. Sure. You will need to run the upgrade system to catch your board up to the current changes. Be aware that certain things like your uploads folder and certain other files like custom emoticons, themes, etc would need to be manually replaced as those would be on the local file system most likely. It might be helpful to also preserve your conf_global.php file which has certain important details for connecting to your database etc.
  18. Once you clear the system cache, try clearing your browser cache as well. You might have something still caught in it. Do you mind sharing your board URL? We might be able to see what's going on by looking at the site.
  19. In the upper right hand side of the ACP (next to your name) is a link that says "Support". It should be a link to https://www.yourdomain.com/admin/?app=core&module=support&controller=support&_new=1 Click that. Once there... on the right hand side of the page... there is a section for "Tools & Diagnostics". One of the options in that area will be link that will let you clear the system cache. Once you do it, reload the Admin CP (close the browser and re-login again).
  20. Have you cleared your system cache? From your ACP, go to Support and then click on "Clear system caches".
  21. Yes. Sorry, I was testing the actual sub-generated URLs... https://www.mydomain.com/forum/id-?? https://www.mydomain.com/index.php?app=forums&module=forums&controller=forums&id=123 In the above, change the forum reference on the left to board. At that point, as I navigate the site, I can browse like normal for /board/id-forum-name. In order to handle /board itself, .htaccess could be leveraged to create the redirect. Sorry... did not think that fully through.
  22. Correct. That's why I suggested the root be left in the root of the site. According to the OP, the forums themselves are what are in the special path, which can be modified via the FURL edit. 🙂 The others would match what he has today and not need to be changed.
  23. Instead of having all of the files under /board/ you would move everything to /. Once there, that will have all the pages, databases, etc all show up correctly. By default, forums would change to /forums/ path instead of /board/. It's easy to edit that however. If you want it to be /board/, from the AdminCP, just search for "Customize Friendly URLs". Search for any mentions of forums/ and change it to board/. (There are 2-3, so it's a simple quick edit.)
