  1. I resolved the concern by simply recreating the page and then switching that to be my home page. But I do thank you for offering help.
  2. I set my home page to use the Page Builder for content. I just put an embed code in a text widget and it broke the page - some content won't load, sidebar is gone but most importantly the page builder button is missing so I cannot see the box to determine if the code is partially missing or to delete the content outright. If I go to the control panel I am only given the option of going to the page to edit. Is there a workaround for this? I don't mind diving into the database but I don't know where to look. I suppose if all fails I could delete the page and create anew one if all else fails. The rest of the site is not affected.
  3. I love this widget and rely on it but what is with the 15 video limit? Can this be bypassed?
  4. So I just upgraded from IPS v4.4.9 to IPS v4.5.4.2 and I expected some plugins to no longer function or require updating. I removed this plugin and reinstalled the latest available download. The widget boxes show up and I can place them in a page and edit them... once all is saved and the page is refreshed - the output is missing. Any suggestions? I really find this plugin useful and kinda need it not... I'm hooked!
  5. Fixed it, but I still would like to know if there is a setting or back-end workaround for situations like this one. What I did was to add "NoScript" plugin to Firefox and then disabled the script that was causing the issue... it helped to know what script it was but the plugin enabled you to disable all scripts it detects so if you are not sure, that capability gives you the power to eliminate them one by one until identified. Hope this helps someone that finds them self in the same predicament. 😉
  6. I was playing around with some YouTube embedding and locked up my home page Page Builder and now I cannot edit blocks. I assume this is because of the code I entered or a script that it calls and only affects the Home page I inserted it into as I can edit all other pages normally. There has to be a way to either turn off the page builder or manually edit the page. Any suggestions?
  7. Which I think stinks. I have been wanting to run a poll on the front page of my site and allow anyone to view and participate in it. I can make a poll and put it put it there but the only people that can vote... are members. So not I am checking out 3rd party poll scripts that I can run and embed. I would think that this functionality would be simple to employ with IPS or even a plug-in for crying out loud. 😞
  8. I am trying to update to version 4.4.4 but step 2 fails. Asks me to manually enter Invision Client Area Email Address and password and it fails every time. Yes, I went to the client area and logged in with the same credentials so I know it's not me! Anyone experience this or should I just ignore this and wait for 4.4.5?
  9. I have quite a few forums and I want to change some permissions settings for groups. For example I want to change the Guests group permission to be able to read all forums. I do not see any way to to do this or am I not seeing it? It looks as though I have to go into each forum individually and change and save the permissions one at a time.
  10. Yes, you are confused and you are over thinking this. I have easily accomplished my goal and it is working properly.
  11. The short of it is I have several websites and I want ALL OF THEM in their own sub-directories for simplicity. Call me OCD. With anything substantial like IPS in the root along with other sites in sub directories it can become confusing and make backing up a little more difficult. It is working with the redirect my host provided just fine and my URL is no different than if IPS was in the root. Like any other time you set up your IPS installation, you have to set the URL and the path's correctly. In this case the redirect also takes care of the URL and setting the path keeps it all working. The instructions for this are the top question in their (host's) FAQ's which leads me to think I am not alone on this however we don't know what reason others have for doing this are. 😉
  12. New host says use redirect in the .htaccess in the root.
  13. Yes, I read the guide and I made a practice move without any issues. I get the moving into the sub directory and editing my paths in the configuration file but my domain, being the main domain for my host points to the root directory. That is what needs the workaround as for most hosts do not let you configure where the domain points to as is possible with all of my sub-domains.
  14. I will be moving to a new host. I want to install my entire IPS suite into a sub-directory. How is this done?
