  1. Time to cleanup the root directory. A long time ago I upgraded from 2.3.6 to 3.0 and I think there are some folders left from 2.3.6 that should be safe to remove by now. Any pointers on which folders can be safe to remove?
  2. So all my tables are utf8_general_ci and need to be modified using the UTF8 converter script to utf8_unicode_ci. Two questions: 1. How lonq will i typically take to change collation on all tables? 2. Will it create new tables or will it just modify the existing tables?
  3. To make it clear for users there should be a "Solved" tag/indication in the View New Content for the topics that have a "best answer" as well as in the Recent Topics hook in the sidebar, or preferably ACP options for activating this.
  4. Here is the solution to IE10 problems: http://community.invisionpower.com/topic/367648-fix-for-ie10-compatibility-issues/
  5. Cannot agree more. I hit this issue today. Un-archiving hundreds of topics manually is not an option, as is un-archiving all topics then move the topics only to enable archiving once again when the move is done. I cannot delete a forum section either without un-archiving all. 3.4.0 must contain a remedy for this.
  6. Nice, this is really good!
  7. Using the tags system with prefixes does not work 100% well. Say you add 5 tags to a topic and when the topic is solved you want to mark it as "SOLVED" by using "Set the first tag as prefix". To achieve this one must delete all tags and add "SOLVED" first, then add all tags back. Having a solution to edit the first tag or add a tag first would be very nice.
  8. Yesterday morning I upgraded my 3.2.3 board to 3.3.2 with all the latest addons. Even though I waited for a couple of maintenance releases before upgrading to a new major version there were some issues and questions raised. This resulted in 7 support tickets which in turn resulted in a couple of problems solved by IPS, three resulting bug reports in the Tracker and the rest I could solve myself after getting the solution from IPS and/or being pointed.in the right direction. So what I am saying is that after less than 24 hours I have been able to get not only quick but also very precise support which has made my board the way I want it to be. Many thanks for the great support and also the great product upgrades. Looking forward to what's coming next :)
  9. Looking forward to 3.3.0!

  10. Many of my reported forum topics result in that they have been posted in the wrong forum section. This information should be prominent in the center for reports in moderation tools.
  11. [quote name='ExoPaul' timestamp='1325716580'] The Login as Member feature.... would you be able to make posts as that member or is it purely to see how they would view the site regarding permissions, etc. Yeah, could be an interesting point of view. Member trust... It seems to me you could impersonate any user on your forums?
  12. LinkedIn connectivity would be great!
  13. [quote name='markopolo2002' timestamp='1325170939'] Really like the direction IPContent, and IPBoard in general is going :) Could not agree more, IP.Board 3.3 plus IP.Content 2.3 will be awesome!
  14. MySQLDumper sounds like a SQL only database dump. That does not help me if my provider drops dead. I want a full IP.Board backup which means SQL plus files. One solution that is the key :)
  15. Maybe so but I prefer features that are builtin to the product so that I do not have to rely on thirdparty software for one reason; Not having to rely on third parties to fix support for new versions of IP.Board, i.e. meaning I cannot upgrade to a new version because of a thirdparty source/application is not there. I have been there so many times and having features built in to the product is superior in terms of support.
  16. A nice feature for 3.3 would be to have automatic backup. For my Wordpress site I have a plugin that dumps database and gathers all files to create a backup which can be emailed and/or stored on the server in a zip file. As I guess most sites will have files rather large (larger than being emailed) it would be sweet if a backup could be created and stored locally which I then could script being backed up somewhere else. Even better would be to have it backed up to a third party source like Windows Live SkyDrive automatically.
  17. Yes I have posted this to IP.Board feedback forum earlier on as stated. The problem with the tags cloud today is that frequently used tags are shown in bold text (in some browsers, in some you cannot tell the difference at all). The text is never larger as I have seen it and in my forum the most frequent ones happen to end up at the very end which is no good.
  18. Please fix so that the sorting in the tags cloud is sorted and showing the most frequently used tags first! Already submitted this to the appropriate forum but would like to emphasize this.
  19. Doing translations in the ACP is really hard. The word search can result in 60 pages of words so i would really suggest a way to filter between public/admin language strings but also do a search for within a particular application.
  20. So using the tags sidebar hook and I would expect the most frequently used tags to appear first in the tags cloud. Now the ordering is random it seems....
  21. Lovely to see that "similar topics" are coming to the official IPB forum. IP.Board 3.3.0 will be nothing but outstanding judging by what already has been uncovered!
