  1. I had similar problem. Host changed platform and cron did not work if I used Redis. Switching to MySQL or File System worked well. After trying different things, and turning on igBinary on my main domain (forum is located in subdomain and subdomain is using it's own php settings) I got Redis and cron working again. "Only" 180 pages of error logs 😄 Just for others having similar problems.
  2. Oh those translations... ? I've had to make many funny translations to make sentences seem OK. Back to 3.x.x I even reported some in Bug Tracker but only couple got "fixed". My language problem is that Suite uses same phrases in many places. But in one sentence it sounds good but in other it sounds very weird. Let's take an example: When someone adds images to the gallery I got an email. It says that someone added a new image. In English, you can use "new images" as "new image" but in Estonian theres "uue pildi" and "uued pildid". image=pilt, images=pildid. Phrase image and images are changing when theres multiple but in Estonian changing only one word isn't enough. And I can't translate that "new" with changing phrase because images and image are used in other places as well. Theres many other examples as well. Thats why I think theres should be strings for Activity, Gallery, Topics separately. Second example is English words "on", "in" "at" etc. We have no prepositions in Estonian. There used to be most online counter where were language string "On" and there come date after it. In Estonian you can't replace it with nothing because we don't have anything to replace it with. And word "in" - "in topic", "in album". We change the word topic. Like topic=teema but "in topic" is "teemas". We change the ending of a word not use preposition. But this phrase "topic" is used in many sentences and I cant change it to "teemas" because it will change the meaning of a sentence in somewhere else. Estonia have 14 cases and no prepositions, Finland has 15 cases and no prepositions, English has 2 cases and have prepositions, Germany has 4 cases and have prepositions, Spain has 0 cases and has prepositions. Languages are different. ? But I'm already used with those language differences. Have managed to translate them somehow (only new image email is still weird). But always worried if some upgrades are available, hoping upgrading won't change something.
  3. Yes, my host told that its enabled and running. I’m seeing Redis memory usage and other limits as well. Other tasks seems to run just fine.
  4. How did you fix this? I have the exact same problem but my difference is that I'm using cron. Tier III told that my problem is "Redis extension is not available for PHP". But before 4.3.3 everything was working like it should. How suddenly Redis extension isn't available? I have over 900 pages of error logs about this. Test board have zero error logs but I'm not using "Use Redis to reduce MySQL overhead" option there either.
  5. Right now we have ability in ACP to restrict using statuses and PM-s but would like to block signatures per member as well. This can be helpful if member has abused signatures.
  6. I came across with the same issue. But for me signatures were disabled (set to 0) for that usergroup. I believe they uploaded it from profile completion page. I even added 0x0 px for images but still there was over the screen image.
  7. I had a bad experience with FB submission. When I submitted my app for a review, some hours later my account was locked and I received an email from FB stating that someone may have tried to access my account. They wanted me to send a picture of my government-issued ID. After that they opened my account but in FB Developers page I saw a message saying: "You're restricted from creating apps indefinitely." I managed to have some more information about why I'm being restricted and it said my app is abusing their terms of service. Like WHAT? I did everything a step-by-step from IPS Guides. FB has this nice help center where nobody READS what you write to them, they send you an automated messages, only the sender's name changes... Long story short... I know how you guys feel.
  8. Hello, Would like to see an option where admin can choose forums where highlighted replies are present. Also to choose colour for different groups (example for moderator and administrator). Thanks!
  9. If I'm not wrong, you can choose your group as regular member and secondary group as administrator in ACP.
  10. Hei, I have a suggestion for Moderator Logs. I have allowed 'Edit Logs' but when a user changes topic title also, it won't show up anywhere what was the old title.
  11. I came here with the same exact question.
  12. Yes please! Funny it isn't an option already (without customize). Would like to make user profiles public but lots of them have their phone numbers added and don't want Google (and others) to index them.
  13. Has anybody done ID-card or Mobile-ID logins for IPB before? In Estonia it's common that companies let you authenticate yourself with an ID-card or Mobile-ID. Then you can be certain theres a human behind every account. But it's not an add-on, every company have developed their own system. Have anybody done such system or are familiar with it? So far I have only seen platforms other than IPB using this kind of authentication. Is it hard to achieve in VS? Found some instructions here: http://id.ee/index.php?id=35748 Thanks!
  14. Once there were a bug redirecting HTTP traffic to HTTPS. I know it's done not by mod_rewrite but when changing site's URL in conf_global.php from HTTP to HTTPS. But now when somebody has an old link to some images to my site it still uses HTTP and theres no redirect. And if I want to correct it with mod_rewrite by adding RewriteCond %{HTTPS} off RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI} [R=301,L] Then I have another problem. If somebody comes to my site from HTTP, it takes them to index.php instead. The thing is that I'd like to add 301 redirect to HTTP links but right now it's not entirely possible (https://redirect.miljonivaade.eu/?url=www.invisionpower.com). Is there any solution?
  15. I tried URL filtering in ACP and blocked some image hosting sites. My suggestion is that if somebody posts a blocked URL, they should get notified about it. For example if member posts an image URL and that domain is blocked by suite, the post will be empty. Suite does not state it was blocked so member will edit post or even do another post with the same content. After that they blame admins that something is broken.
  16. All of these red or gray banners are for your own good. Don't know why's there so much dissatisfaction around it. Only admins see those. Other hand, when something happens to your Suite people are asking "why i didn't get notified about new security release" or something. But it's only my humble opinion
  17. Well, as an Estonian I can say we use Facebook, Twitter and Google for this. Don't know anything about VK. Agree.
  18. Thought to clean up database and some files a bit. But before I delete anything, need some help from smarter ones. Which tables are safe to delete from database? Currently I use only System, Forums, Chat, Gallery and Calendar and not any plugins: ipb_bbcode_mediatag ipb_calendar_calendars ipb_calendar_events ipb_calendar_event_comments ipb_calendar_event_reviews ipb_calendar_event_rsvp ipb_calendar_import_feeds ipb_calendar_import_map ipb_chat_log_archive ipb_conv_apps ipb_conv_link ipb_conv_link_pms ipb_conv_link_posts ipb_conv_link_topics ipb_core_acp_search_index ipb_core_acp_tab_order ipb_core_acronyms ipb_core_admin_login_logs ipb_core_admin_logs ipb_core_admin_permission_rows ipb_core_advertisements ipb_core_announcements ipb_core_api_keys ipb_core_api_logs ipb_core_applications ipb_core_archive_log ipb_core_archive_restore ipb_core_attachments ipb_core_attachments_map ipb_core_banfilters ipb_core_bulk_mail ipb_core_cache ipb_core_dev ipb_core_dnames_change ipb_core_edit_history ipb_core_email_templates ipb_core_emoticons ipb_core_error_logs ipb_core_files ipb_core_files_temp ipb_core_file_logs ipb_core_file_storage ipb_core_follow ipb_core_geoip_cache ipb_core_groups ipb_core_hooks ipb_core_hooks_files ipb_core_ignored_users ipb_core_image_proxy ipb_core_incoming_emails ipb_core_inline_messages ipb_core_ipsconnect_queue ipb_core_ipsconnect_slaves ipb_core_item_markers ipb_core_javascript ipb_core_leaders ipb_core_leaders_groups ipb_core_like_cache ipb_core_login_handlers ipb_core_mail_error_logs ipb_core_members ipb_core_members_warn_actions ipb_core_members_warn_logs ipb_core_members_warn_reasons ipb_core_member_ranks ipb_core_member_status_replies ipb_core_member_status_updates ipb_core_menu ipb_core_message_posts ipb_core_message_topics ipb_core_message_topic_user_map ipb_core_moderators ipb_core_moderator_logs ipb_core_modules ipb_core_notifications ipb_core_notification_defaults ipb_core_notification_preferences ipb_core_permission_index ipb_core_pfields_content ipb_core_pfields_data ipb_core_pfields_groups ipb_core_plugins ipb_core_polls ipb_core_profanity_filters ipb_core_question_and_answer ipb_core_queue ipb_core_ratings ipb_core_rc_comments ipb_core_rc_index ipb_core_rc_reports ipb_core_reputation_index ipb_core_reputation_levels ipb_core_rss_imported ipb_core_search_index ipb_core_search_index_tags ipb_core_seo_meta ipb_core_sessions ipb_core_share_links ipb_core_sitemap ipb_core_soft_delete_log ipb_core_spam_service_log ipb_core_store ipb_core_streams ipb_core_sys_conf_settings ipb_core_sys_cp_sessions ipb_core_sys_lang ipb_core_sys_lang_words ipb_core_sys_login ipb_core_sys_settings_titles ipb_core_sys_social_groups ipb_core_sys_social_group_members ipb_core_tags ipb_core_tags_cache ipb_core_tags_perms ipb_core_tasks ipb_core_tasks_log ipb_core_themes ipb_core_theme_conflict ipb_core_theme_content_history ipb_core_theme_css ipb_core_theme_resources ipb_core_theme_settings_fields ipb_core_theme_settings_values ipb_core_theme_templates ipb_core_upgrade_history ipb_core_validating ipb_core_view_updates ipb_core_voters ipb_core_widgets ipb_core_widget_areas ipb_core_widget_trash ipb_custom_bbcode ipb_forums_answer_ratings ipb_forums_archive_posts ipb_forums_archive_rules ipb_forums_forums ipb_forums_posts ipb_forums_question_ratings ipb_forums_rss_import ipb_forums_rss_imported ipb_forums_topics ipb_forums_topic_mmod ipb_gallery_albums ipb_gallery_bandwidth ipb_gallery_categories ipb_gallery_comments ipb_gallery_images ipb_gallery_images_uploads ipb_gallery_reviews ipb_rc_reports_index x_utf_ipb_convert_session x_utf_ipb_convert_session_tables And then conf_global.php file. It looks a bit old. I know a clean install looks a bit different. <?php define( 'SKIP_UPGRADE_CHECK', true ); $INFO['post_order_column'] = 'post_date'; $INFO['sql_driver'] = 'mysql'; $INFO['sql_host'] = 'XXX'; $INFO['sql_database'] = 'XXX'; $INFO['sql_user'] = 'XXX'; $INFO['sql_pass'] = 'XXX'; $INFO['sql_tbl_prefix'] = 'ipb_'; $INFO['sql_debug'] = '0'; $INFO['sql_charset'] = 'utf8mb4'; $INFO['sql_utf8mb4'] = true; $INFO['board_start'] = 'XXX'; $INFO['installed'] = '1'; $INFO['php_ext'] = 'php'; $INFO['safe_mode'] = '0'; $INFO['board_url'] = 'XXX'; $INFO['banned_group'] = '5'; $INFO['admin_group'] = '4'; $INFO['guest_group'] = '2'; $INFO['member_group'] = '3'; $INFO['auth_group'] = '1'; $INFO['use_friendly_urls'] = '1'; $INFO['_jsDebug'] = '0'; $INFO['mysql_tbl_type'] = 'InnoDB'; define('IN_DEV', 0); /* Remote archive DB - complete these details if you\'re using a remote DB for the post archive.

So I could delete old files which is not used. Thanks in advance!
  19. When I first saw Activity Stream here, I was thinking like "Oh God whyyyy?". I believed my members will never be OK with it. At first I was against it myself. My members are from 16 - 70 y.o but most active users are mid 30's so I was ready for a battle. But... What turned out - they haven't had any questions or problems with it. Not any! I was like... "It has to be a conspiracy or something". Now I'm used to it myself.
  20. I had a very similar problem. Randomly, I saw a blank page. Sometimes twice or even more times a day. After running "Something isn't working correctly" site went back online again (ACP worked as intended). IPS Support suggested to switch data storage from file system to MySQL. After that haven't got any issues. On my case, I did not use Memcached or any other method. Nice to hear I'm not the only one with similar problem (having a problem isn't nice).
  21. As much as I know IPB have stored original gallery files in previous versions also. They are useful if you want to rebuild gallery images. I see your concern about disk space. You may change the Maximum Image Size in Group Settings to reduce original image size for future uploads. It won't apply to your old files tho. Speaking about myself, I once found original gallery files useful when I wanted to remove watermark on images. But I'm not worried about disk space either
  22. No, post author did not change but topic author changed from mine to someone elses. My common sense thought that first post will not change and others will sorted by topic date after first post. This kind of topic hijacking is a bit funny My first reaction was cmd+z
  23. Hey! I have some questions about topic splitting. I'm a bit confused and should it work this way after all. I made a topic on my forums and needed to transfer some posts into that topic. I used "split" in old topic but the result was that my post in new topic went to last position and topic starter changed to person who made the earlyest post from splitted posts. Should it work that way? Or is it a bug?
  24. Would like to know that as well?! One of the hosts I know stated on their FB page that they will not offer PHP7 anytime soon because they have their own control panel and upgrading it would be too much work ? It's some cheap (and unreliable for me) host anyway. My own host has made a rule that they will make PHP versions upgrade on first monday of every month if any of them have come out.
