  1. I was missing the exact same thing and left feedback about it during the 4.0 beta period, but I didn't get any response either. Perhaps it was missed out, but it seems it is not missed by many. EDIT: I didn't see the date of the topic. Need more coffee.
  2. CLI-Converter

    I second that. A command-line importer would certainly be of benefit, especially for big forum conversions. Running off command line is generally more "stable" and quicker, out from experience with other forum scripts. I have personally witnessed a five million post forum converting in about 10 to 11 hours, and that is far from perfect, and I believe improvements could be made here.
  3. What happened to the menu?

    Perhaps, move "Our Community" to where "Forums" is, so you can free up some valuable space? At the same time, moving the secondary navigation more left would make it look a bit odd if the first-level navigation is still at the same place. So I dont know.
  4. Expired license reactivation

    Hi, Your license is not version specific, that means if you reactivate (renew) the license, you will have access to the latest version of the IP. Suite, and any further releases as long as they are within your active license period.
  5. Conversion tools

    Hi, You don't need to wait for an IPS 4.x converter - you can convert from phpBB 2.x to IPS 3.x using the existing free converter tool for 3.x. It is well-tested and stable meaning your conversion should be issue-free. After the conversion, you simply upload the IPS 4.x files and upgrade your installation to 4.x. You can check what data can be converted by following this link: https://www.invisionpower.com/services/migrate?platform=phpbb2. OR you could certainly wait for a 4.x converter. According to Rhett it is coming out "soon".
  6. From phpBB to IP board

    Hi, At this moment, if you want to convert form phpBB 3 to IPB, you would need first to convert to the 3.x series using the free converter app, and then upgrade to IPS4 which is the newest version of the IP. Suite. The conversion is mostly straightforward, involving installing the converter app, connecting to the source database, running the conversion through the converter UI and setting up redirections scripts to redirect users from the old phpBB links to the IPB links. If you wish to read about this process in more detail, please visit the documentation article located here: https://www.invisionpower.com/support/guides/_/importing-and-conversion/convert-to-ips-community-suite-r37. Additionaly, you can check what is converted by visiting https://www.invisionpower.com/services/migrate?platform=phpbb3. Regarding licensing, one license is valid only for one live forum, meaning if you wish to convert three forums to IPB, you would need 3 licenses. You cannot use a single license for multiple forums. This is a standard practice for most paid forum solutions out there.
  7. Search

    In 4.0 and downwards Sphinx has been supported. However, as announced in the 4.1 preview blog entry (https://community.invisionpower.com/blogs/entry/9737-ips-community-suite-41-preview-available/), Sphinx support is being dropped in 4.1 and IPS is evaluating other solutions.

  9. more than one Chatrooms

    There was a 'Feature Plan' page previously which outlined the IPS plans to release an updated IP.Chat with multiple rooms:
  10. Where is the bug tracker?
