  1. Thanks

    Hey @z929669,
    Sorry for missing your message. I do indeed have a 4.4 compatible release, though it doesn't receive feature updates anymore.
    I can either provide you with this version that you can install manually or I can have a refund processed for you if you prefer.

    z929669 reacted to wimg in Importing and exporting configuration settings   
    Over the last few weeks I had to set up a few new user groups, with different permissions and options, a bunch of new forums, new nexus (store) items, menu permissions, you name it. It is a recurring nightmare, uh, feature one goes through managing a board.
    In order to compare the existing and the new ones, I ended up manually copying the details to an excel sheet or 2, 3, ..., 7, or more, so I would have all of the options next to each other and could compare more easily what I was doing.
    It would really be great if it would be possibly to export configuration and permissions to a spreadsheet, and it would be great to reimport it again after making changes. It would essentially make going through a zillion menu options a lot less complicated, easier, and save a lot of arm, hand, shoulder and other fatigue problems, and not to mention RSI. But ease of work is th emain driving factor behind this proposal.
    Ideally the setup of the export should allow for a choice between a member or app specific setup, or both, and have meaningful codes in what essentially would be a bunch of tables in excel.
    In order to facilitate import back into the system, the export probably should include key-identifiers, which could be hidden, and some check that all would still be in place before importing the new settings.
    I would assume that such an add-on would be of the "user be aware of what you are doing, no support, make a backup first, etc." type, but it certainly would make life a lot easier, considering the literally thousands of options one has with say 25 primary and secondary user groups, 40 forums, a store, blogs, and the rest.
    Currently it is just way too easy to overlook stuff when clicking and scrolling through all windows and panes, again and again, just to compare the values, let alone updating them to reflect a proper structure.
    I'll gladly provide a few examples if need be.
    Thank you for considering this.
    Kind regards, Wim

    z929669 reacted to Marcher Technologies in [Pages]More Export/Import options please?   
    I find that I am missing several of the basic tools for getting my work ready for distribution/import to a live site.
    There is no longer the ability to export or import a block, or any templates. The option to download a database replete with all of it's database settings, templates, custom fields and categories is indeed a fine thing, but this very simply does not address the blocks embedded within those templates, the assets included on the page the database is used on that provide a custom style/javascript functionality, or the common need to export just a template for use with an existing generic database like the default articles system, or multiple available templates to choose from for a given database view being added from a given mod, or even the inability to export page templates(from providing more builder templates to custom wrappers this would be useful).
    Could you pretty please possibly review the export/import options present within the pages application and restore the basic tools for distribution where the contents of the database settings and fields are irrelevant?
    As it stands, I'm not going to be able to update several of my mods with it like this, and I've already had to do a manual copy/paste job for a featured articles listing template and a css asset to the live site for a custom, which simply will not fly in distributed works.

    No, it's not like a post!! A post gets distributed to all users who are subscribed to that category, who can unsubscribe from such messages as they like.
    The "share by email" feature on the other hand allows submission of random content to random email addresses.
    I did send two very nice messages to support. If the best they can come up with is suggesting to disable the feature, I don't see how asking nicely for a third time is getting me anywhere.
    (And just a hint: disabling the feature was nothing I couldn't think of myself before getting in touch with support.)
    A feature that allows spamming random email addresses without giving them the option to unsubscribe violates CAN-SPAM, GDPR and probably evey other anti spam regulation in any other legislation too. And this is a feature currently provided by InvisionCommunity.

    Hi,
    I'm really sorry for your bad experience with this feature. We agree about your concerns here and have changed the way how this feature works for IPS 4.5.0

    Invision Community Team: 
    Thousands of emails are sent without control, the site email address is recorded in spam databases and your answer is "sorry, fix in 4.5"? You 've already tired us a little bit with blue message box about the new version, why don't you warn users with a red message box about this security hole?

    z929669 got a reaction from CoffeeCake in ACP - Backup / Restore   
    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

    Your capitalistic prerogative, but ...
    You are going to lose at least one customer with unreasonable pricing like this ... and subscription-based to boot ... and I cannot even try before I buy ... and it 'feels' to me like you are counting on current-user dependency on your plugin to get them past the inner conflict of justifying the subscription-based pricing. This is price gouging in my book.
    You really think that this software is as essential as antivirus protection? You are pricing it like that. This extension is a nice-to-have, not a need-to-have (unless you are counting on existing customers not being able to live without it). It's a plugin. A good one, but still ...
    I use your extension in v3, and it works quite well (with some minor issues/limitations). When I move to IPB v4, I will happily return as a paying customer if you ever decide to price your extension more reasonably. You want 42 bucks? Fine. It hurts, but fine. You want $14/year? No way! I will learn to live without this one under the current conditions.
    :/
    PS: Price increase increases likelihood of piracy, especially when people think the price is unreasonable. IMO, you are effectively making it more of a target for piracy with subscription-based pricing.

    Agree emphatically with the OP.

    Too many features of IPB (that are standard offerings of other free boards software) are only accessible via community plug-ins. Plug-ins are just bad from a maintenance standpoint. Start taking note of the popularity of certain plugins and community feedback and begin integrating these features please.

    Certain features should be bundled with IPB, and this is one of them :

    EDIT: Could the OP-er please add a poll to present IPS admin with a better account of the desirability of this feature?
