    @Jordan Invision It might be nice to alert the entire customer base of these changes instead of putting the marketplace developers in a tough spot having to explain your business decision and deal with the customer angst that's bound to happen in the days ahead.

    ZakRhyno got a reaction from Graphite in Gallery need retouch   
    Gallery has been through many a revisions, some of them good. Then when IPB went back they remade it again and rip out the parts people like. The biggest thing is that for any gallery some type of main image, top of the page has to show pictures within.

    But maybe this may good look into as it been a long while and other parts of IPB have been updated maybe Gallery will be on the list for 2021 to be upgrade. But this is feedback so let me try to list some feedback for them to look at to maybe get an sense of how to improve it.
    - IPS has there own way of getting date and from the time I had a license I think they do listen but I think that can be improve more so. Maybe open a dedicated forums thread and allow members of the community to post there ideas and suggests for a time limited so other peers can see what is being posted and give feedback to what works for them. Make a simple template for users to follow and allow a mod/member/staff whatever monitor the thread and deleted comments that are not part of the template to keep it only to the suggests / ideas for the gallery. I even will commit to monitor the thread to delete comments in till it get closed.
    - Bring the past back and install some of the older version of Gallery to see what members like from the past versions and see if they are worth taking a second look at? There nothing wrong with looking to the past and improve for the further. Whatever Gallery 3, is not what it is today and what it look and run link was totally different. Make a temp install for let say 1 week for users to look and test features out and get a sense of what they like in the past and move the gallery every week to the current install version. Even if doing that is to much with resources or whatever is the problem, why not just do an install and then take screen caps or video of the Gallery(s) and post them to YouTube to do the same thing just in video form.
    - At the end of the day IPB has to make something for personal, company and small business. Maybe having more built in layouts this may assist in this front. Maybe Company/Person (C/P) A will want to have a clean simple layout, while C/P B wants to be a little more fun with scrolling images like was in the version of Gallery that I recall cycle through images on the front page. But my point is at least having say minimal three different layout features, simplistic layout, medium layout with more bells, and advance something that can be more used and play with by the users. Yes, I do know much of this can be done by add-ons but let look at the truth there not many out there and the current style is not really cutting the rug. I seen many other galley systems that are more feature rich but yet simple in design and still make it look nice.
    I hope some of this help to the IPB staff reading it for feedback and readers of this thread. Was trying to be insightful as I can but yet still give constructive ideas to move forward on. Would even be possible to ask if IPB Staff plan to OR they already looking at Gallery to get redone or improve on? The current one even if some improve is done aka little things, the core of it is not well filling the click box of being really friendly to users.

    ZakRhyno reacted to Lindy in Marketplace   
    The Marketplace is a service. While you are of course acquiring third party resources, you are not obtaining them directly from third party authors and it is really no different than other app stores. Your transaction is conducted through IPS and the Marketplace is a remote service. The point here is just to dispel the silly notion that we're in "breach of contract." The EULA makes clear the fact that a renewal is required for all updates, services, etc.
    To provide further clarification, an expired license does not shut off the software and you may continue its use in an "as-is" state (at time of expiration), but it does effectively render both the license and status as a customer as inactive. It is no secret that our company is based on the recurring investment model, so while we don't want anyone to feel held hostage to renewals and we try to reasonably accommodate all customers past and present, our decisions and prioritization of goals will ultimately be in the interest of those continuing along side of us, sharing our overall vision.
    With all of that said, this topic has been discussed several times and ultimately, the Marketplace was moved to the AdminCP for what I hope are obvious reasons. A significantly improved and smooth experience for the majority of customers who want a point-and-click experience, consistent with most non-classic "forum" platforms. We want to take every reasonable measure possible to ensure that when you click to install something from the Marketplace, it will be a successful and safe experience for you. We've tightened the framework around that to ensure you're notified with seamless updates from authors and anything installed through the Marketplace framework has been reasonably reviewed by us. We made the decision to disallow manual downloads from the Marketplace as it is entirely counterproductive to the goal we set out to achieve in the first place.
    I want to stress that you are welcome to contact an author for manual file provisions if you would like and we do not prohibit them from providing it. You may also purchase from some authors directly if you wish. The only caveat for both cases is, you would use the manual (old) framework to install and update these resources manually. A warning will also be generated because these are untested files - similar to Mac and Windows. Beyond that, we're not standing in your way of using the "old school" way - we are just not facilitating it as again, it is counterproductive to our goal of something that resembles more of a proper app store and not just a repository of "files."
    I'm sorry for the disappointment to those find the previous method to work better for them. As you know, we try to take on board as much feedback as we can - after all, there's no point to any of this without customers. Nonetheless, while we've heard the feedback loud and clear, we do not intend on reversing course on downloads or policy changes, so at this juncture, I would very respectfully ask that we move on to other, more actionable feedback items.
    Thank you as always for your continued business.

    In the old interface one could find all the error codes and look them up as to what they mean. Current the new interface don't have the link anymore and I take it that by now all to most of the area codes are final. Could they but listing in the IPS4 Resource link so people can look up what they mean?

    IPB just came out with 4.4.0 less than a month ago sorry wrong version of what I said early.  I wanted to see if Keyword Tooltips 3.1.5 will be updated to work with the newest release due to some structure changes because of the update IPB did. Current it only supports Compatibility 4.3.

    ZakRhyno got a reaction from sabrond in Community & Client Area   
    Signing in to the community then I have to sign in to Client Area. It just a little pain to do both all the time. I thought IPB had a Master Slave thing that allows for to installs to talk to each other so that they can be not connected but still have the same sign in or share the same allow signin so thus I don't have to signin twice. Hope that made sense. I just got to keep signing in twice all the time just a bane. Could this be fix to allow one signin for both one time?

    ZakRhyno got a reaction from Azhar Shahzad in IPS should improve the suite documentation   
    I have an open ticket with this issue with management and was waiting for a reply from them, but when I check this morning it look like it was going to be close because I didn't reply. But I did reply, so my ticket got move from waiting on IPB to waiting on me, which can only be done on back end by a user, as I can only resolved the ticket for my options. I documented this issue with some pictures and stuff and hope not to get brush under the table with trying to get some answer to questions that have been for me at least side stepped are phase a already old term, "were working on it."  I have no issues with IPB, I enjoy working with the software and when I have issues they replays to my tickets are within the range they said they answer. Over all my experiences have been "B" grade level, but when trying to work with Commerce AKA Nexus 4.0 (which sounds better IMHO) were working with money and stuff that should be layout. I would think IPB would agree with me there, so I just sit and wait to see what happens next.   
    So far from what there in guides to get you understanding and knowing of the software it coming along. I just wish the release of content is extra slow than the release of the software. If they improve on that and not just say they going to do it but do it than they (IPB) is holding up the the customer to vendor relationship.

    This was in the Client Lounge, if you don't have an active licence it will be hard to see this. Not the best place to post news don't you think as everybody don't visit the forums. As I visit a few times are it goes on a dry spell, it being posted in places where I do see it RSS feeds, news announcements and IPS News Block on the IPB Admin Control panel would have been a better way to get it out to people. A forums section only for paying members to see would be not the best idea to share something that is important to all members paying are not.

    ZakRhyno reacted to Smaugtd in Sometimes you feel that a thank you is just not enough   
    Hello IPS community,
    I rarely visit this site, or in general had any communication with the IPS team between 2014 (when I bought the IPB 3.4.6) and today. I renewed my license once during this period , but in general since my forum was working and performing well (according to my criteria), I did not really care.
    Some of you may have noticed the post that I opened today in another section of this forum (please see below). I immediately sent another email to the technical team asking for help. Rhett from the support team spend a good 1.5h trying to help me by identifying the cause of the error and possibly fixing it. The only thing he asked was to renew my license (should have been renewed June 2016 if I am not mistaken). Bear in mind that the 3.4.x stopped being supported 1st April 2017.
    We did not manage to solve the issue, as it has been an error cause from my hosting provider and he could nothning for it. But he tried without asking for any additional fees and it personally felt like during that time he really cared to solve this. For a customer this experience is invaluable. 
    Next steps agreed are that the team will help me upgrade the board at the new version, when the error has been solved and take it from there. From my side I promise guys that for as long as my forum is up and running, it will be running using your platform and my license will never be expired again.
    Huge thanks,
    Christos

    That's a fabulous story to hear! I am a huge fan of IPS, the developers and staff here! They are really awesome and to hear about this just helps in confirming that.
    I think I inflate their ego (like VBs code) too much sometimes but then people like @Lindy and @Charles (and I'm not going to list the whole team sorry, I love you all and you know it) just make my day and I don't feel like I say I love them enough.
    So Huzzah IPS! <3333

    ZakRhyno got a reaction from Cyboman in Idea - Improve Communications WithIn - ACP & MCP   
    So here what I'm seeing. If I want to communicate with an Admin, I would use 3 ways.
    1 - Admin Notes (Problem All Admin See it - No way to really directly to a specifically Admin within the ACP.)
    2 - PM Admin - In the from end. (I think the front end PM's are best for other things than Admin stuff when you have to switch between front and back ends)
    3. Admin Only Forum - Post stuff for Admins but it sort of weird when trying to work on the back end when there a front end forum.
    If 4.2 could have a way to maybe access PM with in the back end within the ACP are if the Admin Notes Box can be allow to send notes to other Admins with in the back end ACP are some way to give it specifically to a Admin than all of them.
    This goes similar for Moderators, having some type of Mod Notes for all Mods to see when with in the Mod Control Panel area as well as a way to sent quick notes to Mods that can see them while with in the MCP area would be helpfully. 
    Communication has grown a bunch from IPB 3, but this small problem about going to another system to access a message than going back to the respected area is than trying to remember what was said are noted to you. If something like this to added are just improve to see items with in each respected area that would help communities I think.
