  1. There should also be the option of $0. People may not want to pay anything for the application, and developers could look at that and know straight away to avoid it if they don't want to do work for free, rather than taking the time to contact the person only to find they won't get any money for it.

    "Requesting free project" exists as an option already.

  2. If you put 0 in the setting "Prune all topics with this number of replies or fewer", it will prune topics only with 0 replies. You would enter -1 in that setting if you wanted to prune all topics.

    If you don't want the topics to be deleted completely, you'd just set the setting "Delete the topics from the database completely?" to No.

  3. Until the status of that report changes from Under Consideration to something else, you can be assured that it is still Under Consideration.

    Again, I've stated in that particular report, and in the post you just quoted, if and when the status of that report changes, the report will indicate that change. So you need to be keeping your eyes on that report if you want to know what's going on with it.

  4. They have to have that 'Add Comments' permission to access the comments section at all. You can then refine their specific comment permissions in their group settings to let them only view and not actually add comments. Sorry, that does appear to be confusing.

  5. If it was related to these acronyms then you likely would have had these issues other places in your site. The plugin for this app for IP.Content feed blocks does not do anything special with acronyms, but it does load the standard IP.Board parsing routines which will load custom bbcodes. So you may have had similar issues anywhere any parsing is done.

  6. I don't know what I could tell you about that. If it's timing out, and not just returning a database error, then that's more of an issue you need to discuss with your host.

  7. I can't reproduce this problem on my site.

    Try to see if you can go to the Other Apps -> Tutorials -> Categories page, edit a category, and set the permissions there. Another thing you may want to try is to switch to the English language and see if that changes anything, there was someone earlier who had an issue that I believe I'd narrowed down to it being something with the Russian translation of this app they were using.

  8. That should work for most of the Friendly URLs, yes, but there will still be times where the URLs come up as ...app=tutorials&module=..., that's not something that can be changed.

    Note that easier changing of these Friendly URLs is a feature I plan on putting into the update of this app for 4.0 (provided IPS doesn't already have a way they'll do that for all apps).

  9. If it's not giving you the popup, then the Russian translation is not OK, not for this text that it is failing to popup for you, anyway. If you are able to delete a category when your language is English, but not Russian, then you need to address this issue with the maker of the Russian translation of this app.

  10. Again, I need to know if there are any javascript errors on the page. When you try and delete a category, it should be popping up a message box asking you to confirm, are you not getting that?

    It looks like you are using a Russian translation of the application, do you get this problem when you use English instead? My guess is that this is actually a problem with the language string it is trying to load on that message box popup. If this works for you when your language is English, but not when it is Russian, then you need to report this issue to whoever created that Russian translation for you.

  11. Are there any javascript errors on the page?

    You don't need to PM me pointing me to this post, I reply to support questions here without additional prompting.

  12. This is directly an IPB issue. MySQL may have limitations but there are tons of things IPB could do to resolve this issue as starting with developing an advanced Sphinx or other Search Engine integrations.

    If the issue is that you can't search for something with three letters, and the Sphinx search IP.Board provides fixes that, then what is the need for some 'advanced' Sphinx search? And even without Sphinx in the picture at all, this can be taken care of with the same MySQL tweak that's been around for years.

    OK, if there are other search engine integrations that could be added, great, every other new option helps, but there are already two readily workable options now. Perhaps you could share some other examples of these other search engines that could be integrated? But I doubt there are too many folks who need three letter searching and can't use one of the existing options.

  13. Make sure you uploaded all of the files that were included in this app, I'm not sure which plugin the message is referring to, I don't believe that's my app generating that message.

  14. They are many steps to reduce piracy.

    As you say it's impossible to stop it at all, as they do for IPS products, they reverse the license verification engine.

    I'am agree with BomAle too, you can slow down piracy, for exemple by using IonCube or Zend encoding engine.

    But, it will be difficult to mod these products, it's a choice.

    Yes, doing those are things we as developers can do to our products to help reduce piracy. But customers hate that. It gives them extra hoops they need to jump through to install such products, as they need to ensure their server has the capacity to run such encoded scripts. If it is encoded to protect some licensing system that runs a call back to the developer's site and that developer's site is down then the user is stuck and can't complete the installation process. And lots of customers are just downright distrustful of installing something that gives them no way to tinker with the code or check for malicious code.

    Piracy sucks, but it's inevitable. It's better to make products that are as user-friendly as possible for all legitimate clients and accept that some people are just never going to use them legitimately, rather than make them hard for everyone to use.

  15. No, both are built-in. Announcements are called just that, and can be created in the ModeratorCP. Important topics are called Pinned topics, and are created just like normal topics but you then have to choose to Pin the topic when you create it (or afterwards). Any announcements active in a given forum will show up first, followed by any pinned topics, then all of the other standard topics.
