    Draffi got a reaction from xtech in Old IPB (v3.4.6) Boards closed - only active Clients? WHY?   
    Hello!
    I want to ask, why are all the (old, v3.4.6) Support-Topics are only viewable for user with an active client account?
    When i visit my old IPB 3.4.6 Board, i can read "Licensed to ..."  in the lower right corner - so this meaning, i`m a kind of active- or no?
    Furthermore, why are the v3.4.6 Boards "closed", if v4.2 the new state of the Art and the Team dont support it anymore? But let the user help together...
    Why i need an active account, if i want to stay with IPB 3.4.6?
    MAYBE i can understand, if you gave the old 3.4.6 Board "read-only" permission, but totally closed....Its a kind of strange "pay-or-die" politic!
    I re-newed my license many times....for nothing? Only for to read "I need to be an active client"???
    THANK YOU SO MUCH, FOR ...NOTHING !!!!!

    Version 3 is EOL and does not receive updates (including security updates) and support. Using it is a security risk and you miss out on modern technology. I mean v3 was made before the iPhone existed so something as what is now basic - full mobile support - is not there. You are missing out on what is now required functionality on the modern web. I realize people hate change but as with all software things have to evolve. It does not work on PHP 7 and PHP 5 is also approaching EOL. So you are using a software that we (the makers) no longer support which can only run on a server-platform which is also nearly defunct. It's imperative that you consider an upgrade path for your safety and continued success. I'm not trying to be all "omg scary" it's just the reality of the situation.
    I'm sure Microsoft still gets angry letters about no more Windows XP support too  ... it's sort of the nature of software development.
    The version 3 support forums were archived off to only active license holders as a courtesy for those few left who have not yet upgraded. We plan on completely archiving them in the not too distant future.

    This will display the video thumbnail below the video description.
    Open admin/applications_addon/other/videos/extensions/rssOutput,php
    Find:
    $r['description'] = IPSText::getTextClass( 'bbcode' )->preDisplayParse( $r['description'] ); Add BELOW:
    $thumbImg = ( $r['thumbnail_type'] == '2' ) ? $r['thumbnail'] : str_replace( '{root_path}', $this->settings['board_url'], $this->settings['vs_thumbnail_url'] ) . $r['thumbnail']; $r['description'] .= $r['thumbnail'] ? "<br><img src='{$thumbImg}' />" : ""; Save.

    I haven't tested this but try something like this.
    Open admin/applications_addon/ips/downloads/extensions/rssOutput.php
    Find:
    $r['file_desc'] = IPSText::getTextClass( 'bbcode' )->preDisplayParse( $r['file_desc'] ); Add BELOW:
    $thumbImg = ipsRegistry::getClass('output')->formatUrl( ipsRegistry::$settings['board_url'] . '/index.php?app=downloads&amp;module=display&amp;section=screenshot&amp;id='.$r['file_id'] ); $r['file_desc'] .= $thumbImg ? "<br><img src='{$thumbImg}' />" : ""; Save.

    ​I just uploaded a changed file to correct this, but for those already hitting this issue, edit skin_links->linkView, and find:
    <if test="allowComments:|:$this->settings[ 'l_allow_comments' ] == 1"> <li><strong>{$this->lang->words['Comments']}</strong>{parse format_number="$link['link_comments']"}</li> </if> make it this instead:
    <if test="allowComments:|:$this->settings[ 'l_allow_comments' ] == 1"> <li><strong>{$this->lang->words['f_by_comments']}</strong>{parse format_number="$link['link_comments']"}</li> </if> seems I still am dealing with the language mess here, the rewrite for 4 is vastly needed for that reason alone.... there are dead(unused) language strings in this app.

    Mine works.  I can't stand the default IP.Board 3.4.7 search.  
    You have options:
    1. Contact IPS customer support
    2.  Swallow your pride.  
     
    Also, curious, how did you download a Marketplace file if you're not an active license holder?

    Draffi reacted to Tarun in htaccess for IPS Forums   
    Draffi, yes. However you will need to remove the top segment of IPS 4 .htaccess code. Only use the segment from the ## Begin - Expires caching to the ## End - Expires caching. I use this same code on my Lunarsoft frontpage.

    Draffi reacted to sobrenome in Bring Back Attachments Custom Field Type to Pages   
    I am using IP.Content as CMS. And IP.Content is not the best in image handling.
    Following IPS tips, I have used a attachment type custom field in every database of my site to handle images.
    Now I want to upgrade to 4.0 and I realize the Pages does not accept attachment type as custom field.
    Please, bring it back urgently! 
    I guess that most of IP.Content users have followed IPS suggestion to use attachment type custom field in articles and other databases to handle images and are now unable to upgrade to IPS 4.0 without losing all images related to database records.
    Thanks!!!

    Draffi reacted to Gnuru in SEO: use heading tags where appropiate   
    For SEO Optimization I would suggest to use the headings tags (h1-5) only for titles, categories or db-/forum entries.
    E.g. the related content widget uses h3 for display "block_relatedContent" but not for the listing entries.
    Same with other widgets and the site title....

    Draffi reacted to opentype in Wiki-style editing   
    ​I would even think bigger here. Why just copy the MediaWiki way of doing internal links? It’s not a very good concept anyway. 
    I would rather suggest, that the 4.0 Suite gets a suite-wide linking feature for any content type. There are already the link boxes for forum and files for example. Why not extend that for all content types of all apps?
    And in addition to that, there could be a similar system for links within texts. So the Link button in the editor gets a new option “internal link” where you first choose your app (forum/gallery/pages/blogs/calendar) and then filter down to the content element you want to link to. Then a dynamic link is generated, which will always forward to the correct entry, even if record FURLs change.
