  1. Hello, Can you tell me what are the differences between Feature Topics and Pin Topics. What are the benefits between and the other?
  2. Okay, maybe I had better try updating to latest version of IPS, first. I do not want to waste your time. I will let you know how it goes. I will have to wait to do that tomorrow, got to go for now. Thanks
  3. Hello, It appeared everything was going to work fine but when I clicked on Change Author and typed in the new authors name and saved. The author did not change. Any ideas what went wrong?
  4. To date, I would say "oh-wow" with what you have produced in IPS4, in my opinion excellent job!. However, it would be nice to see a focus on pushing out some of the guides, so clients can make the best use of IPS4 products on their site. I know there are a lot of smart tech folks out there, using IPS4, who catch on quickly. I am guessing there are an equal number, perhaps more, who are not so tech savvy, who have full time careers, who would desire to put the full technology of IPS4 to use on their site, without have to go through so much trial and error, before learning. I would also venture to say, once those users have a full set of guides to implement the full power of understanding IPS4 on their site, it would help sells go up. Of course this is only one supportive client's opinion. But, how better to put the polished touch on transparency for the end of the year? Thank you.
  5. Thank you, I appreciate it.
  6. No body knows? There must be someone.
  7. How do I add or place the separator in the Toolbar? I know that clicking the button adds the separator, but it appears on the extreme left side of the toolbar. I can not move it to the location to the location where I want it.
  8. Hmm... this raises a good question, since IPS is still having quite a few upgrades, fixing bugs and/or issues with 4.0, If I pay to have widgets or work done, then upgrade to a new version, say every two weeks, each time, I will risk the work I paid for does not work. I would remind everyone, I am a fan, supporter of IPS 4.0, and I know, introducing totally news systems takes a while to work out, what I am going to call a stable environment. Any thoughts on this?
  9. Yes- specify exact polls that will be places in rotation, probably 5. But it would also be nice, say on my index page, a poll widget is placed, which displays 5 rotation polls. In other areas on my site, another poll widgets could be place, which displays 1-5 different rotation polls. My site has specific reasons to rely heavily on polls, so it would be nice to use this poll widget to entice non-members to join up. In that sense, I would want to use/specify the juiciest polls.
  10. Can modification be made so a forum topic feed is added and rotation of the feed? I would like to be able to select which forum polls are added, so when the widget is placed in the sidebar it rotates between the selected polls, or perhaps create a new widget that works this way. I would be willing to pay for the changes, make donation or purchase new, whatever works for you. P.S. In the copy write area, I would like to use this area to add a message ,which allows for a link to a url. Thanks
  11. I just have to share this. I am hosting on IPS, working out of town, on the 4th of July weekend, and my debit card is compromise. So I have no choice but to cancel the card, which is what I use to pay my IPS hosting account, and my account is due on July 6th. I had forgotten about my account being due until this morning, July 5th. I set my daughter up as alternate contact with permissions to pay my account, in doing so I did not see a place to create an account for her, just enter and email address. I begin to get a little concerned that my site will go off line before I get the invoice paid. So to save time and make sure everything is processed okay, I created a ticket, requesting instruction, on how my daughter will be able to pay my invoice. Rhett Buck, responds back in about 5 minute, possibly less. Now That Is Service! Thanks a lot Rhett! Rhett response is below: Rhett Buck has replied to your support request. Hi Rick, it looks like you have this setup properly, she would log into the client area with the email (I removed her email address for security) at this url https://www.invisionpower.com/clients If she hasn't setup the account yet for her email she can request a password reset on the login screen as well. Then she should be able to process this for you
  12. I noticed that my ICalendars are off by a day or two, can not remember which one it was. Though, I have not reported it yet, because I am just learning how to set up icalendars and thought it might be my fault. I guess I should look into it more and report it.

    ​Was it there by default, meaning is that where I can expect to see mine?
  14. ​Hmm, I never tried it in Blogs, only forums. I trust you are correct.
  15. Works and looks great in 4.0.3.!
  16. Hello,

    I would like to take a look at your website, can you tell me where can I see it?


  17. This is how I set it up. Name Required Provided name FURL Slug Provided furl slug Description Provided Parent Select or No Parent Show Records in Listing? On If you select 'no', only subcategories will be displayed in this category. If you select 'yes', subcategories and records will both be displayed. Allow Rating? Off Set Custom Permissions Off When enabled, you can select member group permissions independently of the parent database Display Listing Template I tried both Use database selected template or list Display Template I tried both use database selected template or displayThat is really all there is to the configuration.
  18. I created a new database and set up category. But when I try to create a new article in the database and select new, I receive a pop-up for Select Category, but will not allow me to select a category and it will not allow it to remain blank. The category shows up but it is grayed out and can not be selected. Can you tell me what I might of set up wrong?
  19. ​Hopefully, I can follow your notes, I messed with this for the longest time yesterday and never did get to where I wanted to be. Strange thing is, I set it up in 3.4 and thought it was pretty simple at the time. Of course that was more then a year ago, I was thinking, has my memory gotten that bad. I really struggled with it yesterday. Guess I'll try, try again.
  20. ​I assumed Weekly was a modified form of gallery. Never the less, I think I will continue pursuing the idea of using gallery to present some topics on history. You have a couple of really nice looking and informative sites. I read a couple of the articles, and I might join in the future and ask a few questions about font, using the correct time period font for history articles. I am pretty busy right now and do not have a lot of extra time, but when I am a little more focused on that, I might just join.
  21. ​You know I must say, I originally followed you because I enjoyed reading your informative content. I am feeling pretty dumb, because up until now I missed your signature. What an excellent way to use gallery. I hope you do not mind if I use the idea. It is excellent and solved a problem for something I wanted on my site and did not know how to exactly present it, in a good way. I use to think what am I going to do with gallery. Gallery will work perfect for a history section I want to publish. I just saw gallery as a place to publish pictures, not as an area for publishing a topic article. It is so perfect for publishing history articles. Thank you!
