  1. Hi great work, looking forward to v3 for IPB4.5. I'm currently warming some members up to it on the v2.4.7. Just learning all the new options and making a few minor tweaks. One thing I can't quite seem to get right is the @mentions. That is I can make it right for light, but then dark looks out and vice versa. I'd almost say no colour at all would be better. I did look at the demo which seems to be making use of css vars 🙂 although they are not, or don't seem to be in 2.4.7. Any thoughts on this one?
    As @bluto says, using a transactional processor and getting a failure was a chore to unset preferences and alike. Then the user might just opt back into emails anyway. Note it does not solve the unsubscribing from things, but does suppress sending notifications. Wish I'd found it 2years ago 😄
  2. When this feature was initially released I was excited to use it. As soon as I saw the registration flow for a free subscription I turned it off, it's terrible. As a developer myself, I know you have to release things and get feedback. IT won't always be right and the perfect release is never released. I'd really like to hope to see this feature be useable soon. The most obvious pattern from our perspective as community owners, seems to have completely slipped past the user stories phase. Fingers crossed 🙂
  3. Was following this topic for very similar issues last month and now again. I didn't raise a specific ticket on this, did raise one on curl timeouts. Now had to raise one... Just been told that ES and update of view counters are not related :S with mysql search working, turn ES on, they stop working.... Well gosh darn. Sadly it's still not working, so I've gone back to MySQL search. If I had a setting to turn view counts off I would ... css to the rescue to cover up a bug. Except then the updates table grows and grows like an unseen worm, waiting for you to be in the air over Africa
  4. This would be good to know too. We cant' place subscriptions on the signup or anywhere with a free one forcing you through a checkout process. Which is the wrong journey for a 'free' option. Why offer a free one? I was asked. To create a differentiation, and to inform, essentially, by free you accept promotions/ads etc. By a paid one you get xGb storage, no Ads and so on.
  5. @The Old Man I raised this and offered a fix, it wasn't taken up. It might be something you can do with s3 perms out of the box now.
  6. Just to add to this as I'm sure we're not alone... I've reached the end of the economic line for a single VPS. I count myself lucky the provider is excellent and very few SPOF incidents. I don't wish to move to a single commodity dedicated server, I'm going horizontal. Using any of the leading VPS providers there is a 'private' network which isn't actually 'private'. A couple do offer it. A VPN would be the only solution that works at any host, based on your feedback @Lindywhich is more complex to setup and manage than certificates. I don't think it's unreasonable for us to have a way of
  7. Ben, If you've not already done so, check the cost of serving from S3. Ideally you want to put a cloudfront 'CDN' in front of your S3 assets. You'll need a new IAM user with the right auth to your bucket, then set a policy for access as a logged in user only. Afterwards if you try to access the S3 bucket image, from a unauthenticated session, you should get the error document instead. You'll also need to specify the cloudfront url in the files section of IPB admin. Checkout this post:
  8. This is a problem for me, only on an annual basis. Only this morning I had to go and unlock an expired invoice for a guy who'd been away for 2 years. Ok so you can't keep invoices open for ever, but the only allow one should count 'intelligently' and not include expired purchases. I'd say for every one who gets in touch, three others don't or give up trying. I actually think letting them purchase more and handle the refunds might be better than looking at failed renewal stats The old subscriptions; pre commerce, pre nexus, worked as it does on most other board software like this... b
  9. I hit this trying to convert to git deployments / docker. Bit of mare with the install codes and testing. Also as I code in the cloud, localhost just does not work! Well it can, but who's got time for that. You can only change/reset your urls so often. IIRC it's once every 6 months... hehe deploy a vps, run up docker, update your loadbalancer, that's a new url every 6 minutes. I don't therefore do this with ipb. So I did two things. 1. Converted ( brought ) an old lic which gives me a public testable site. Seems expensive, but < 2hours dev time and you'll get that back later on de
  10. I'm not sure why this is such a lengthy delay though. In development though. One does simply not remove a huge feature without a plan, well ok... Was it really a pain leaving the option in place for those of us with a few million posts or more? Search was never been that good anyway so I'm not upset When we moved to IPB in 200# from vb, most of the early complaints were about search and that continued till recently*. Search maybe isn't that important in social media, maybe that's the influence, error. I've removed the emphasis in guidelines on searching before asking again *I've b
  11. What was present in IPB3 on login handlers which does not appear in 4, so far as I can see is the ability to specify form html and the bank of urls for maintenance, register, log in and out. IF they were there it should work like it does in 3
  12. I was looking at this too, the SSO is red herring, it's SSO for other IPB apps, not a true single sign on multi-platform solution. The outline is to have the forum be a part of a larger eco system of applications. Applications not made in PHP nor even related to forums. Lets say a finance check, or insurance quote; motoring related site, either way, applications or services that are not plugins to the forum code base. So: www.example.com forums.example.com accounts.example.com rubyApp1... nodeApp2... phpApp3... So we wrote a quick ruby 'accounts' app to handle all user registration and
  13. Interesting test results. I was just setting up a redis container and enabled caching. Less scientific, but it felt slower, maybe I'm getting old. It's only me using it between a couple of incognito sessions... I've also got a memcache container waiting. Once I've sorted another issue, I'll probably get to throw some load testing on and see. I suspect, the non-cache response time & load will rocket as we head up the RPS chart.
  14. Hi, Exploring external Db Authentication options in IPB4. My goal to have an external Db, a members suite of apps which handles registration and non forum features. The external Db is managed by non php code, so the "SSO" as IPB think of it via connect, is not suitable. To prove the concept I have a super simple external Db, which IPB is correctly talking to and allowing users to log in via when they exist. In IPB3 there was a external registration url, where to send the user to register etc. That is to say I want the users to register via my other 'members' application, which populates the
