  1. I thank you for your positive input BUT, I only ever messaged support 4 times, the very first time I lost all my back ups and needed the last version of software I was running at the time of license, to be belittled by staff, trying to squeeze me for license renewal, I was so frustrated that I needed to pay for the software that I already purchased, I was angry, I tried to keep cool, but support just mugged me off, I lost it a bit and was rude (justified I think) so.... not a good start. I wanted to keep everything above board and not turn to nulled software just to use what I paid IP for
    Still no update, been ages! 28/08/2019 1 Star, trash, no point buying these because every update of IPS will break this template and you'll have to keep having to have it corrected and support isn't all that great, IPS is also very buggy so there's updates coming out all the time where they try and fix one thing which breaks another so a template with slow support isn't worth the effort and you should save the money! (I came today to see if the updated 4.4.5 was avail but it's not which this has bugs in 4.4.4 and 4.4.5) Not renewing, gave it a good go and in the end it wa
  2. I'd bet the only reason for not really having all of this after 4 years (options for dark mode etc) is because they try and get more sales for their 3rd party products (less support to give but still collect the fees from the sale) Otherwise why else leave the default skin to be so basic?? Make no sense after 4 years.. I'll keep ranting till this gets put right, only reason I bought Vuples Dark was to get a dark skin with some options but because its 3rd party, forget help lol, also every upgrade the templates break...... come on, go to be a joke right? Also, when i say put righ
  3. What we need is a community bot, which tests the whole website, collect reports of faults in all areas and aspects of IP Board, like a standalone app which sits on our desktop, logs in with admin user / pass, makes articles, topics, guides, support requests, messaging, template edits etc etc to give us a something like an XML file to give ips and they give us one back for a single solution for all our faults, otherwise I'll expect to be repaid for faulty software! Like make it easy to fault find! That's why we need a bot, we can't be expected to work on faulty software till we discov
  4. Just going through the same here: I was fresh at this a week ago, seems complex but in the end it's just 2 services which are SPF and DKIM which need to be right for DMARK to pass, Black Tiger has added some useful information in this post
  5. After I used your line, I get 7 warnings (mxtoolbox), when I use my line I only get 4 for the SMTP banner, not sure at this point, maybe need to just back off this for a minute and clear my head, I'll leave the settings over night and see tomorrow (though I think the rDNS is my main problem in the end / I'm guessing at this point though)
  6. PS support in all of these establishments are crap 😛 ... anything standardized is a customization 😛 from what supports say, since I'm new to semi control of the whole site workings I'm learning slowly but obviously can't learn a whole internet way in a year
  7. reading many MANY threads, so much conflicting information (for something so simple 🙂 ) https://ph.godaddy.com/community/Managing-Email/What-are-the-correct-GoDaddy-SPF-Settings-For-DNS-to-send-mail/td-p/5645 PS, they removed this to push the Office365 perhaps? Which apparently has this all sorted automatically (PS IM A NOOB so don't take what I say as fact) (because all the threads I read, even godaddy don't know half the time)
  8. Hay, thanks for the reply, I just was doing some messing and though I understand what you're saying about the MX records etc, that's not what godaddy are saying,.... and I'm not saying either of you're wrong as I know each setup has it's own strings, my biggest problem right now is getting my head round how all of these tie up together (other than the DKIM I guess which is just a public / private keys) PS YES SHARED HOSTING Just changed the string to the one you created, I'll wait few hours and look at it again, PS more help from users than support (which is sad) but ni
  9. This is my result for the above code line, sometimes I get a warning but sometimes not ( There's another warning there though about DNS)
  10. Just found the best topic for SPF and Godaddy: https://www.godaddy.com/community/Managing-Email/What-are-the-correct-GoDaddy-SPF-Settings-For-DNS-to-send-mail/td-p/5645 Though there's some serious confusion there (or everywhere) about SPF settings, in my case all I want it to do is Pass mail from my None Dedicated server which is the standard server that comes with cPanel (secureserver.net) (unlike any people that use the extra software like Office 365 etc) to users email accounts, which seems this is the correct setting: TXT @ v=spf1 include:spf.em.secureserver.
  11. Thanks for the reply, I'm using Godaddy Linux Ultimate with cPanel, no options to auto add DKIM but I got access to DNS so adding one isn't a problem (though as I understand it, this is a Encryption key which the email server uses to verify and I could use the public key in bulk mail server / software? Which verifies the sender by accessing and decrypting from the private DKIM in the DNS record? ) Because I use Godaddy email server, which is the only one that will ever be used, I set up the DNS like so: I have the A record pointing mail to IP of server (A @ mail xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx 1080
  12. I've looked at them already (I searched for 6 hours) 🙂 Would I, to test this, create an email and sign up for the site, see if the email goes through or just look at the report saying it's going through?
  13. Just noticed one problem and I'm looking to solve it, I noticed my messages going to spam folders and come across DMARK (Domain-based Message Authentication) Anyone set this up that could share any tips? I've watched and read a few hours and I'm getting it more but all I would like to achieve is to get messages which are sent from my website to users not land in the spam folder which is obviously damaging to user confidence etc which I need to go through as normal, any recommendations or advice would be fab, if I understand this correctly, when interacting with users on the website, a no
  14. 5 bills? Hardly a fine for Facebook, pennies in fact, a joke. Either way it's a ploy to stop others doing what Facebook is doing, following what the Gov been doing since the dawn of time, who is Facebook to act in such a way? Still, the users are the only ones to suffer, they will be paying this debt off, not Mark. The company clearly went against the people so instead of taking it down, they promote it 🙂 .... my favorite scam of all, like the UK expenses scandal or Brexit, to make us believe them! Probably covering something up as we speak.... Yea I know, tin foil at the ready, st
