  1. Is it possible to have the original date as shown in the screenshot above DISABLED by default ? We use this a lot for various post templates and when we copy the template from our editorial forum to the main one the person editing this often forgets to uncheck this value and its a lot of steps to go into the database and set a new post date .... If not possible to make it an option, is there a manual edit we can make to turn this flag off ?
  2. We were the first site for our team in the early days where the upstart world wide web was taking over from Fidonet and Usenet so that helped. We were also part of the rivals.net network of sports sites which got us publicity (and funding) during the so-called (first) dot-com bubble, and we also have longevity compared to other sites which came and went. For a while we were also the official site for our club and have a long history of working with them so we get traffic by association too. It was a slow process though and we worked hard on it. Our first influx of members came from out of
  3. We earn just about enough each year through Google Ads and a few donations to pay for our hosting and software renewals and maybe the odd mod or two. That's the aim each year. Never going to get rich doing it but its satisfying that the community has a stable core of members with others coming and going over the years. Been doing this site for 26 years (1994) and using Invision since 2007. Like others, its a passion project (my favourite football [soccer] team) with a secondary pull that it keeps me connected to my home city after moving away from there in 2003.
  4. I just bought this plugin yesterday and thought to bash ahead and do some conversions without brain engaged .... end result is that I made a mistake on our live forum converting a forum to a club and accidentally deleted the forum content for that new club. so its basically lost as far as I can see as its no longer in the forum area and now deleted from the clubs. Luckily I chose to try this out on a smaller, less used area of my site so the damage is limited ! I currently have a DEV copy of the same forum up and running which uses a copy of the original database, and as this particular
  5. Add me to that list too. We have a bunch of housekeeping to do on our site as its approaching the end of the football (soccer) season in the UK and we tidy things up once a year at that time. We are also looking to update to 4.3 between now and July/August and may have a bit more re-arranging to do so re-instating this feature would be desirable.
  6. How do I enable this ? I dont seem to have this available as an option for moderators or admins ?
  7. Does that mean an administrator cannot ? I dont see it at all ... but thats not really an issue as I prefer to keep using your plugin. its plain and simple and does all that i need . I know, thats what i mean .... he is used to using your plugin to promote to article and that was it .... his editing was finished .... now I am asking him to promote to article then go back to the newly promoted article and use the internal system to promote to social media and to 'our picks' if we want it there too. (no big deal and off topic for the functionality of the plugin).
  8. Where do you enable it ? I cant see the option to do so in the member groups or in forum permissions anywhere. It is probably staring me in the face but I cannot find it in ACP I like your plugin as its quite simple and puts a link there right on the actual post. no extra clicks or hidden in menus anywhere .... more importantly, my editor finds it easy to use ! He just has to get his head round the new promote to social media and to 'our picks' option in 4.2
  9. I can promote to Facebook, Twitter or 'Our Picks' and all of these are welcome additions, but have I missed the option to promote an individual post to an actual article ? I did not see that and thats what this plugin does.
  10. Thanks for the rapid response and new version. This is an essential plugin for my non-tech savvy guy who manages our editorial team.
  11. Having the same issue in 4.2. cannot see the option to promote to article. will send a PM if thats ok.
  12. I have the opposite issue ... the old URL was flagged by Webmarshal as malicious but this one now loads fine
  13. Having the same issue and thought it was related to something else. Response from IPS was as follows : The OutOfRangeException errors in the ACP system logs are not related to polls they are caused by a plugin attempting to load a content item that does not exist. Specifically the problem is caused by the "Ban From Topic" Plugin. Please disable this plugin or contact the modification author for assistance. These are some examples from the logs : OutOfRangeException: (0) #0 /home/site/public_html/init.php(447) : eval()'d code(73): IPS\_Content::loadAndCheckPerms('29634') #1 /ho
  14. thanks Adriano - v1.0.2 fixed the problem. awesome turnaround time in getting it fixed.
  15. this is what I see (minus the part that shows the poll content itself). Let me know if you want to see it on the site itself Wed, 13 Jan 2016 19:35:00 +0000 (Severity: 0) xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx - http://caleythistleonline.com/topic/27267-poy-template/?do=copy&id=27267 Unknown column 'tid' in 'field list' INSERT INTO `ibf_core_polls` ( `tid`, `start_date`, `choices`, `starter_id`, `votes`, `forum_id`, `poll_question`, `poll_only`, `poll_view_voters` ) VALUES ( ?, ?, ?, ?, ?, ?, ?, ?, ? ) | File | Function
