  1. Our site has been with Invision since 2004. From the days of IPB 1.x and free! We host local history discussions for The City of Nottingham UK. Many members have hosted their images with PB over the year, sadly some of those members are no longer with us. IPB are we any closer to a solution?
  2. We have been using Invision since November 2004. Since the free version. IPB4 is absolutely dreadful. We have members who no longer return to the site and others that state they are getting so frustrated that they intend to leave. One admin has resigned because it is now so complex. We have member leaving that have previously supported the board for ten+ years! Would be interested in any info on migrating to another system.
  3. Thanks are you saying that you need to restore the files from the forum version at the time of the SQL backup?
  4. We upgrade to IPB4 soon, Hope to see this excellent ap continue
  5. I want to restore an earlier database backup from 6 years ago to recover and copy some now deleted posts. This will be temporary and It wont be public. I want to install it either in a new forum directory on original domain hosting, www.originaldomain.com/forums2 Or under a new domain name which is an add on domain under my shared hosting plan. www.newdomain.com/forums. Can this be done, if so how and which is the best way to do it?
  6. Thanks Looks like a great tool but after installing I can resolve your address as above. Our local city URL is more complex: https://maps.google.co.uk/maps?safe=off&q=Long+Row+West,+Nottingham&ie=UTF-8&hq=&hnear=0x4879c22aa35d7679:0x560bfdf39b9014ce,Long+Row+W,+Nottingham&gl=uk&ei=J53KUZGJHMSZ0AWo_oDwCg&ved=0CC8Q8gEwAA will not resolve in post, Google maps test any advice?
  7. Working great. Any image for 'Google Mobile' bot? 'Bing' shows on visitors but there is no image showing? Image in upload is 'MSNBing.png'
  8. Tried to paste it at portal skeleton location. Where to paste. Top of template? Did not work. Still inside the Admin CP, visit the My Apps -> Portal page. Look for the row named Upcoming Birthdays and click the Options button to the right. From there you can view the Exportable Tag for it. That Exportable Tag, like all Portal Plugins, can be pasted into the Portal -> skeletonTemplate skin template or configured as a Custom Block to make the plugin appear on your Portal.
  9. I installed it and when enabled, and displayng the main index I get the folowing error. Fatal error: Call to undefined method IPSLib::makeNameFormatted() in /public_html/forums/cache/skin_cache/cacheid_1/skin_global.php on line 1293
  10. Download Duplicate Members Logger Duplicate Members Logger v1.0.0 - Invision Power Services http://community.invisionpower.com/files/file/2847-duplicate-members-logger-v100/ It works
  11. I have now disabled this App I tried to log in with duplicate accounts of ordinary members And only then got an error. It appears that possibly only duplicate members will see the following error? when they try to log on thus allerting them to the App? Warning: Missing argument 2 for reportLibrary::loadPlugin(), called in /home/*********/public_html/forums/admin/sources/classes/member/mudd_functions.php on line 528 and defined in /home/*******/public_html/forums/admin/applications/core/sources/classes/reportLibrary.php on line 267 Strict Standards: Creating default object from empty value in /home/*******/public_html/forums/admin/sources/classes/member/mudd_functions.php on line 533 Fatal error: Call to undefined method stdClass::processReport() in /home/********/public_html/forums/admin/sources/classes/member/mudd_functions.php on line 545
  12. Installed I logged in as different users, It did not show the connection? Maybe because I am an admin, I am already whitelisted?
  13. Surely this should be set as a default in the board design, to prevent every member of every forum in having to do it. Currently quite nasty trolls are exploiting this and other IPB loopholes to post foul information and abuse on our board.
  14. Currently the board has automatic acceptance of friend requests. By default this should be set that members approve all friend requests, and can choose to automatically approve friendships if they wish. I have some banned members who added me as a friend before they got themselves banned. This is a security issue and current default setting should be changed.
  15. It should be written into the code that Banned/validating members should by default not be visible anywhere? That would save everyone having to reset these values in ACP. Many will only find the need to do this when they are targeted like we are being targeted. These people have found a weakness in the code and are exploiting it to great effect! Currently even admins cant see who is online.
  16. Dealing with the Trolls

    1. Zhana


      Same here.

  17. Can confirm that some admins have seen the obscene validating names and moved them to the banned group. We do not delete these users as the IP addresses are evidential. I have removed 'new members' from display as advised above. Suggestion Banned members and validating members should not be visible in the normal members list.
  18. Support Ticket response, posted in this area on IPB support request. We have a problem with persons registering dozens of obscene names to disrupt the board. These names show on the bottom of the board in the area 'Newest Member' and are visible to all site visitors, even thought they have not verified their email address and been Admin approved. Can it be set that new members only show in that area once approved by admin? Today, 08:00 AM Staff: Andy Hello, After checking this myself on my test board validating members will not show in the newest member section by default but will if you move them to the banned group apparantly. Validating members do, however, show in the member list unless you specifically edit the group to alter this setting. I see you have already done this so am I right in thinking that currently the only public viewable location of these members is in the "newest member" field at the bottom of your board? If that is the case this is not strictly a bug in the software. However, I think it would make sense to also hide the group from that field if you have set the group to hide from the member list. I would advise you post this as a feature suggestion in the company forums at http://community.invisionpower.com/forum/298-ipboard/ where it will get the attention it deserves from the board developers. I note somebody else has also made such a suggestion here... http://community.invisionpower.com/topic/3...ed-individuals/ In the meantime while you wait for an inbuilt feature you could remove that field from your skin by performing the following edit... In ACP > Look & Feel > Your Skin > Templates > Board Index > boardIndexTemplate find and delete... <dt>{$this->lang->words['newest_member']}</dt> <dd><a href='{$stats['info']['last_mem_link']}' title='{$this->lang->words['view_profile']}'>{$stats['info']['last_mem_name']}</a>{parse template="user_popup" group="global" params="$stats['info']['last_mem_id'],$stats['info']['last_mem_seo']"}&nbsp;</dd> Regards, Technical Support Invision Power Services
  19. Cant get Mudd to work? After installing, I tried this and just get a blank page or page not found error? I am using latest version of IPB
  20. Change the label on the Quote Button from 'Reply' to 'Quote' We get loads of unnecessary quotes due to this.
  21. Topics and posts awaiting moderation? Having a direct link via ACP, As have: Awaiting Validation Locked Accounts COPPA Accounts Etc
  22. Its good that there are several ways of viewing new posts. I hope you will be grouping those in the same area of the page. A drop down menu is good if it contains all related links such as differnt types of view in latest topic views. (Show all new content since my last visit or Show me all new content I have not read) The problem our members had before one member found it was that the choice of view were located via another menu on their settings, Both should be on a primary menu which could also include 'view new post' day/week/month?
  23. The posts on my forum have dropped to an absolute minimum since the upgrade to 3.0.1 Feedback from members, they dont like not being able to view recent posts by day/week. The new registrations we have seldom post? The two settings hidden away under Member drop down menu and My setting, are not a good substitute?
  24. This is what our members say: We need this facility back as soon as possible.
  25. Just upgraded 3.0.0 to 3.0.1 Had hoped that the absence of being able to see recent posts older than 24 hours, would be reinstated. But am disappointed that it has not. , 3.0.1 has tidied up some issues nicely, but the feature of being able to catch up with posts when you have been away from the board for more than 24 hours, is a major omission, and complaints from member are being received. Lack of this feature is costing us posts and members! Since upgrade to 3.0.0 new registrations have also dropped. If this feature is not going to be included in future updates, will probably return to 2.3
