  1. IPS 4.3 - Elasticsearch

    Any thoughts of using ES's Percolate function so users can setup notifications for new content that matches their criteria?
  2. 4.0 - Messenger

    What prevents the person you are messaging with in a private conversation from adding someone else you do not approve of being added? I appreciate the effort you have put into this, and I know this is how email works, but email is not called private email, whereas this is called personal/private messages/conversations.
  3. IP.Board 3.4 Dev Update: "Best Answer" Feature

    As a user of QA sites like stackoverflow I appreciate their existence, but I think in some genres (like anything computer related) they threaten forums immensely. Do you guys have a strategy beyond this feature that addresses the above, where people can get similar QA functionality (specific answers) but in a forum type of way (discussion) so it's the best of both worlds? This seems like a great start. Nice work!
  4. Migrating to IP.Gallery

    Thanks Brandon. It's not the links to images I'm worried about, it's image tags that I'm worried about. Are there any current method to convert the ubb image tags to the appropriate IPB ones and correct the src paths to the Gallery5 images?
  5. Migrating to IP.Gallery

    Has anyone migrated both their forum and gallery to IPB? What did you do about your imbedded links? I know I'm not the first :)
  6. Migrating to IP.Gallery

    I forgot to add. We are on Photopost 7.1. Will the converter work on this version?
  7. Migrating to IP.Gallery

    We are migrating our forum (UBB) and gallery (PhotoPost) software to IPB. We have been on this platform for almost 12 years and have a board with over 23k registered users and 1 million posts. Of the many issues that we face in this migration, images from PhotoPost that are embedded in posts is one of the largest. The simplest solution to this is leaving the old photopost data folder in it current location to maintain the image paths. Ideally, I'd like to take advantage of the all the Gallery functionality including the new lightbox functionality. So my question is are there any solutions out there that will scan the database and correct the src paths and add the correct tags to convert inline PhotoPost images to Gallery 5? Thanks!
  8. IP.Board 3.4 Dev Update: VigLink

    I'd love to hear some VigLink success stories because for us the returns sucked, and we've done pretty well monetizing our site. The worst part of their service is they track every click leaving your site, whether it is affiliate or not. So they gain a lot of analytics insight that I suspect they could sell. Sorry just not a fan of this Google back venture.
