    Yep! This is a soft launch to a smaller number of customers so we can iron out any issues we find (and we have found some 🤣)

    There is an open bug report related to compiling themes using the visual theme editor not working correctly. We will investigate it for an upcoming maintenance release.

    Yes, the application will be updated for 4.5!
    There's one maintenance release going out with some minor bug fixes for 4.4.x, then after that I will start releasing a new branch with 4.5 compatibility

    abobader reacted to Morrigan in When installing mobile app it should AUTO ADD your community   
    This is just a UX thing. If you're prompted to or you install the app it should automatically add the community that you're adding it from. This could be just because I've installed it from the ACP but that shouldn't change the design here. Having to search for the community after the fact is just a step people won't enjoy taking.

    abobader got a reaction from ibaker in How can I merge 2 users   
    It can be done, either from the sql or best to use plugin like this as example (I used it in past when it was made for 3.4.x)
     
    also at the marketplace many plugin to change like join date .. etc.

    There is no easy way
    1. Go to PMA
    2. Run sql-query 
    SELECT * FROM core_javascript WHERE javascript_name='ips.utils.cookie.js'; If the tables have a prefix add it
    3. Click on javascript_content field
    4. Find 
    1 Jan 2020 change 2020 to 2021
    5. Save changes
    You can skip steps 2-5 and run sql-query 
    UPDATE core_javascript SET javascript_content=REPLACE(javascript_content,'2020','2021') WHERE javascript_name='ips.utils.cookie.js'; 6. Clear the cache. ACP - System - Support - Something isn't working correctly
  19. Thanks

    I'm sorry this has occurred. As cookies require expiration dates, a developer seemingly just picked 2020 as an arbitrary date as that javascript code was written several years ago and at that point, it seemed far enough in the future; unfortunately, it was just overlooked. Unfortunately, it happens; even the giants like Apple have had to push updates to fix date issues. The issue has of course been fixed and that expiration date is now generated and inserted based on current date + 1 year, which is standard practice now. We have also ensured there were no other "hardcoded" dates (there weren't.) 
    @ibaker - I can appreciate your frustration and once again, I offer my sincerest apologies. With that said, I do respectfully think it's a leap to say the software (or even a portion there-of) "self-destructs" or has an "end-date" because a cookie has expired that simply controls a UI/stream preference. We certainly didn't do: if( date('Y') == '2020') { exit; } You are absolutely correct it shouldn't have occurred - but this is unfortunately no different than any other bug. 
    The issue cannot be simply patched, unfortunately, as it requires an actual upgrade process to rebuild the javascript (v4.5 should allow us to correct JS issues without a full release.) We will, however, be releasing 4.4.9.2 to specifically address this first thing tomorrow (Thursday) morning. We never recommend manually manipulating the database, but if you are unable to upgrade for whatever reason, @newbie LAC's fix is suitable. 
    An unfortunate way to ring in the New Year, but we appreciate your understanding.

    abobader reacted to Lindy in After every update I REALLY hate IPS   
    These types of topics can be disconcerting and even misleading. 
    1. Some of what's claimed to be bugs are simply not liking the way something functions -- like the inability to delete gallery images because it's a global permission (which is being addressed.) Those are valid concerns and may even be high impact for your particular site, but are nonetheless not bugs and certainly no indication of product stability.
    2. Some claim to experience *.bug, yet when you look at support history expecting pages of recent support requests, you find barely any. One of the posters here is claiming instability and an epic amount of bugs, but hasn't had a single ticket in 4 months and not a single bug report has been filed ever. So, either one is suffering in silence or is just jumping on the proverbial bandwagon. Regardless, I admittedly get a little edgy when someone attempts to shake customer confidence and is not providing the full picture. 
    3. Those that experience issue after issue are very typically in a substandard hosting environment - you'll note time and again our cloud clients rarely have issues. Unfortunately, IPS4 has really highlighted imperfect and outdated hosting arrangements for various reasons. IPS4 is going to perform and function better under modern and proper environments with proper setups (innodb instead of myisam, etc.) It's not going to be stable or perform well on bargain basement servers using desktop processors instead of server processors, VPSs with overloaded parents, etc. It's a bit like installing Windows 7 on a Pentium III -- it will technically work, but it's likely going to be an overall poor experience for you. 
     
    Now, while I completely disagree with the assessment that releases cause more issues than they fix, I don't want to imply there's been absolutely no concern here and we're perfect... we're certainly not. There have unfortunately been several embarrassingly poor releases and I'll definitely own that. We've very recently took strong notice on a higher management level and have been incorporating many, many changes internally to deliver rock solid releases. We've expanded our testing, both internally and externally. Everyone at IPS, from sales to support, are required to conduct a QA review of each release and sign off on the release board. Impacted areas are given even more attention. We have also brought back an internal QA team comprised of clients from the community that are willing to upgrade live sites with beta releases in exchange for one-on-one live support from our developers and technicians. We've also completely overhauled advanced support and development policies and procedures to improve interdepartmental communication and eliminate repeat issues falling through the cracks. Automated testing is also in the process of being incorporated. 
    All of these things have already had a tremendous impact on stability just in the past 2 releases. We of course cannot rewrite history, but I am deeply sorry that we've not done these things sooner. I know it seems like we're forever asking for your patience, but I would again ask that you hang tight. Throughout the speed bumps and niggles along the IPS4 journey, there's one consistency: we're in a constant state of progress. We've recognized where we've gone right, where we've gone wrong and we're forging ahead a smarter, stronger company with a stronger product line. 
    In regards to bugs vs features - this is also a concern we've recently had. Moving forward, virtually every release will have a balance of minor features and fixes. Major releases (i.e.: 4.2) will be a themed release. For example, the next major release will have an engagement theme. We'll focus, across the suite, on things that engage your users and keep them on the site -- such as better media handling, reputation enhancements, etc. So, you should not see many releases that are all bug fixes or just feature additions. This should keep the product stable while still keeping it fresh and progressing. 
    Finally, if you are experiencing issues - it's imperative you let us know. Keeping things to yourself and letting them fester to later surface in a topic like this is not productive for anyone. If you have a concern, the best way to get it addressed is via the client area. I assure you - you're not bothering us and we want to hear from you before it reaches the level of topic frustration.
    Thank you.

    Good day,

    I just need to add one thing, I been with IPS since day one, and also I hold lifetime license as well.

    The thing bother me most of that ,why we cut off from the beta download? We force now if we need to test the IPS 4 beta, to agree to convert our license "today", since as I look to it, we are not customer anymore, for that, we can not test the beta.

    Sorry for my words.
