  1. I recently migrated my IPS3 install to a new server where I installed MySQL 8 instead of 5. Trying to get IPS3 working with MySQL 8 proved to be a great challenge, so I just bit the bullet and migrated to IPS4 and wrote off my incompatible apps and hooks. However, I ran into a bug in the IPS4 updater. As per the MySQL manual, MEMBER was added as a reserved keyword in 8.0.17 (will be made non-reserved in 8.0.19, which isn't yet released). applications/core/setup/upg_40000/upgrade.php includes this query: $toRun = \IPS\core\Setup\Upgrade::runManualQueries( array( array( 'table' => 'core_voters', 'query' => "ALTER TABLE " . \IPS\Db::i()->prefix . "core_voters ADD COLUMN poll MEDIUMINT UNSIGNED NOT NULL COMMENT 'The poll ID', ADD INDEX poll (poll), DROP INDEX tid, ADD INDEX member(member_id, poll)" ) ) ); This fails when running MySQL >=8.0.17. The last line of the query should instead be ADD INDEX `member`(member_id, poll) with backticks. Would be great to have this fixed so nobody else gets bitten by this.
  2. I tried disabling native prefixes in IPS' settings as I don't need to use them, but it also hid the advanced prefix menu.
  3. Am I going to need to manually edit the theme to remove/hide that menu?
  4. If I want to require a prefix in a particular forum but only from a closed set, how can I remove the "item prefix" dropdown where the user can select one of their tags to use as a prefix? In practice this doesn't do anything except it hides that tag that the user selects from view, and the prefix they pick in the other box is the one that's used.
