    Hey @Makoto, Thanks for providing the 4.4-compliant version for me. Will you still be able to fix the "copy settings" functionality in the ACP for this app? We have hundreds of forums requiring various combinations of styled tags and prefixes. Without this function, it would take hundreds of hours adding it all, and it would no doubt be inconsistent. I'm dead in the water without this functionality. Also, there seems to be no permissions for restricting use of prefixes independent of tags and neither can be restricted to use by specific groups ... unless I'm missing something?

    I would absolutely LOVE the 4.4 version please. No refund necessary if that's the case! I will upgrade to 4.5 eventually, but 4.4 will be just fine if Radical Tags for that version has all of the most meaningful features. Can you PM me a link?

    Thanks for confirming ... I suspected. It looks like we are changing our entire maintenance strategy and forum structure when we move, so I think it works out fine to start from scratch. Will purchase shortly and get back with Qs and feedback if I have any. Thanks again! EDIT: Just purchased and am only seeing a web install option through my ACP. Is it possible for me to obtain the installation package outside of the IPS web install? I prefer to extract the files manually for the upgrade if possible. I need to install this on both my prod and dev instances, so not sure how that is going to work with their licensing scheme. I do not want to have this active in only a single env. EDIT2: I just found that IPS in all of their wisdom made theme-breaking changes to 4.5.x ... why?!?!? I assume that you do not have a 4.4.x compatible version of Radical tags? Any advice on reverting the latest theme-breaking changes? looks like they changed to header elements and added their own themes to the ACP. Anyway, I will not be able to use this plugin until I put in the hundreds of hours required to revert all of their unnecessary layout changes, so I will need a refund and will re-purchase if I ever upgrade IPS again. If you do know how to reapply the 4.4 friendly and CSS-backward-compatible layouts to 4.5, I'd pay you or anyone else for such services. I just don't have the time to troubleshoot it all myself 😞

    I'm finally upgrading my forums from 3.4.6 to We have used AT&P extensively, but will need to disable and remove it prior to upgrade. Does this solution consider existing AT&P DB data and convert it, or will I need to rebuild from the ground up under this solution?
  5. There are a couple of submissions in this forum that touch on this, but I want to address copying ACP settings configurations in its entirety ... a comprehensive XML export / import tool that is available in previous versions and competitor software but not the latest version of IPS. There's something for Themes, but little else is available. The manual labor of upgrading is pretty unnecessary given the lack of this simple solution. Rationale Would allow the admin to export every ACP setting and configuration (some may need to be separate import/export utilities, due to storage diffs, e.g., Menu Manager) Would allow import into another instance Restore settings after messing something up and forgetting how it happened Easily copy settings from TESTINSTALL instance after an upgrade Pretty fundamental IMO, so I hope this gets addressed soon. Thanks
  6. Here's the thing though ... he is correct. One should not need to 'disable' a feature that is technically not compliant with the new world order, nor should one need to be polite about sharing the frustration of the experience described. Jan was venting in frustration, and it wound up prospectively solving the problem. Thus, indeed it was "smart feedback". I for one am quite tired of those "in the know" replying to valid queries in an ambiguous manner and with an air of superiority to boot. I have to agree with @Jan Krohn and @desti ^ Either fix this issue or prominently warn clients so that they can avoid legal non-compliance --and responsibility for which the 'smart' client would ultimately place onto IPS
  7. It's a shame, but it is what it is. Can you or I add formally as a feature request, or is that process just informal via forum post? Thanks for the suggestions. I will probably do #1, but that may require an effective production downgrade and re-upgrade in some situations down the road. Very doable though if the software and license policy will let me do that. EDIT: actually, I will try to update some individual tables controlling the ACP and post back results.
  8. I'm looking for a plugin to allow XML backup of my ACP settings along with an import feature ... somehow this is missing from IPS4 and this package as far as I can tell. I posted about doing this manually, but no bites. Am I the only person that sees any value here?
  9. I have a TESTINSTALL instance of IPS 4.x.x Forums upgraded from my previous IPB 3.4.6 forums and have made many changes to the ACP in terms of almost every setting, including building out new forums labels/structure/mods/perms, Menu Manager, etc. I will be upgrading my production IPB3 instance soon and want to overwrite my ACP settings from TESTINSTALL if possible to avoid the repeat work. Using UPDATE on the core_sys_conf_settings table seems obvious and relatively risk-free ... any gotchas here? What about other settings that likely require additional tables and meta-info like Menu Manager, Forum labels/structure, Member-Forum-Mod perms, Block config, etc? Perhaps it is safer to manually handle all of this, but wondering if anyone has devised a best practice(s) for this piece. Thanks in advance. ------ Edit: The following can possibly be updated using UPDATE ... SET from other instance core_sys_conf_settings core_menu
  10. @beats23 No resolution yet, sorry. I will post back if I do though
  11. "This file is not currently available for purchase" ... I assume it's because you have indicated that you will no longer support IPS upgrades moving forward?
  12. So no way at all to obtain this now?
  13. Thanks for the suggestions everyone. I was able to download and install a Webstorm trial, which should be similar to PHPstorm and RubyMine. Next question: I'd like to work on my test server files directly by syncing to a remote folder rather than download and upload in bulk to test each small change. I've been finding that this is not so easy for some reason, but it makes perfect sense to me and shouldn't require that I configure a bunch of other software to facilitate (i.e., hack). I'd rather not set up a local server or create a Git to sync with my IDE and my server, as that will take more time and pain to configure than just getting into the theme directly without the IDE. Any thoughts?
  14. Thanks ... yes. 4.10 is listed in Credits.txt as well, so I'm not sure why the Enhanced Images plugin isn't working with respect to that version ... and I've confirmed that "ckeditor_extraPlugins":"youtube, images2", breaks everything, and "ckeditor_extraPlugins":"youtube", fixes. The "Add Button" installer deposits the files into plugins and modifies /datastore/settings.dfb3467fc1.php but the editor breaks due to that single bit of code. EDIT: but the images2 plugin install does not add anything to *.json files in /applications/core/interface/ckeditor/ckeditor/plugins ... and the Youtube plugin does.
