  1. While 3.1 may have been released in late 2010, 3.2 wasn't released until late July, 2011. Meaning less than 2 years to EOL. And it's not like it's recommended procedure to upgrade immediately whenever a new version is released either. In my mind the keyword here is CRITICAL. It's confirmed, it's dangerous and it's known. No one's asking for unlimited support of older software. To bring up 2.x is irrelevant. I've been with you guys since '04 so I pretty well know I'm whizzin' into the wind here. Just sayin'. Ignoring a critical patch for software that is not terribly old, with a somewhat intensive upgrade path, is gonna leave a lot of people vulnerable.
  2. Since this is a CRITICAL update, IPS is basically leaving untold sites twisting in the wind. I understand the need to put old software to rest, but since the 3.x series is still current, it is not unreasonable to expect some will wait to update until the 4.x release. If the update process from 3.1 software wasn't daunting, I would say you are being realistic to expect people to upgrade to a newer version. But since it will entail quite a bit of work, this policy will leave a LOT of customers AT RISK. I have been waiting to see what 4.0 brings to the table before deciding whether IPS is still the best solution for my needs. I currently turned my board off and will have to make this determination based on the current software. I simply am unwilling to renew all my third party apps and hooks at this time. I updated my other board (3.2) promptly. Since IPS hasn't said otherwise, I must assume this security hole puts me at risk.
  3. No More Post Link Popups?

    Do you have any idea how many people have no idea such a thing as "right click" even exists? I have tried for years to get my wife to use right click to no avail. If she can't find a button, she loses a feature, pure and simple.
  4. This. is. awesome.........

    Yea, if it's just something with my browser (FF7) I can live with that. If it's an issue with FF itself, then I can't set it as a default skin. It works fine in Chrome except for the jitters, fine in IE. It's a very nice skin, reasonably priced. Thank you.

    No, that's the font I have specified in FF. It's properly centered in Chrome, but the scrollbar jumps, which I believe is an issue with the js snow effect as reported here.
  8. It needs to go; Look and Feel>Manage Skin Sets & Templates>Skin>Global Templates>globalTemplate>add after Also, make sure you upload the file to the correct directory. I couldn't get it to work and went to check if the file uploaded correctly and found I had uploaded the 'upload' folder instead of its contents. <doh> Works nicely even in my custom skin. ;)</doh> Edit: Just tested in Chrome and also get the jittery scrollbar.

    Nice skin, however. For some reason the user profile box is in the middle of their post, like so;
  10. Try this; Media Replacement Match http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid={1} Media Replacement HTML <embed style="width:400px; height:326px;" id="VideoPlayback" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" src="http://video.google.com/googleplayer.swf?docId=$1&hl=en" flashvars=""> </embed> BTW, what seems to be messed up? I have been using this on all versions of 3.2 without issue.
  11. Why do people love to hate Apple?

    Thanks. Don't pay much attention to Apple stuff since I don't use it. But this thread got me wondering. Seems the web would be a different place without flash. :)
  12. Why do people love to hate Apple?

    Thanks, but that would be the iPhone and iPad, correct? I'm not bashing, just curious. How do they handle flash content?
  13. Why do people love to hate Apple?

    I have a question, as a person who has never used an Apple product; How does Apple handle flash? I understand it's not supported, but what does this mean in use? Is it somehow emulated by something else? Or is flash stuff just ignored and missing? I've always wondered about this when hearing Apple doesn't support flash.
  14. Just delete it and replace with original code.
  15. Our behavior on IP Board

    I have my browser set to land on the forum index. From there I scroll down the sidebar checking the blogs and then down to newest files. Then I hit VNC. Sometimes I'll check my content for new posts. Never browse the forum index.
