  1. I installed the latest version of the plugin and im running the latest version of ips. The options do not show up. Can you please update / fix this?
  2. @DawPi Just installed the latest version of the plugin on the latest version of ips but this: https://dne4i5cb88590.cloudfront.net/invisionpower-com/monthly_2020_05/screen_1.png.cee033078c2aa2f43c6d8d11ad23224d.png Does not show up
  3. The Update fixed it, thanks. 🙂
  4. You submitted the last update on December 29, 2020. I have the latest version 5.5.3 installed but the issue is still there. Edit: Full error message: REPLACE INTO `links_groups` ( `links_g_id`, `links_g_access`, `links_g_contentcount`, `links_g_dontpay` ) VALUES ( 2, true, NULL, NULL ) IPS\Db\Exception: Column 'links_g_contentcount' cannot be null (1048) #0 /home/user/public_html/system/Db/Db.php(979): IPS\_Db->preparedQuery('/*detroitd_detr...', Array) #1 /home/user/public_html/applications/links/sources/Members/Members.php(60): IPS\_Db->replace('links_groups', Array) #2 /home/user/public_html/applications/links/extensions/core/GroupForm/Links.php(74): IPS\links\_Members::setGroupData(2, true, NULL, NULL) #3 /home/user/public_html/applications/core/modules/admin/members/groups.php(224): IPS\links\extensions\core\GroupForm\_Links->save(Array, Object(IPS\Member\Group)) #4 /home/user/public_html/system/Dispatcher/Controller.php(90): IPS\core\modules\admin\members\_groups->form() #5 /home/user/public_html/applications/core/modules/admin/members/groups.php(39): IPS\Dispatcher\_Controller->execute() #6 /home/user/public_html/system/Dispatcher/Dispatcher.php(152): IPS\core\modules\admin\members\_groups->execute() #7 /home/user/public_html/admin/index.php(14): IPS\_Dispatcher->run() #8 {main}
  5. Im getting an error when trying to edit guest usergroup settings. Other usergroups work fine. Part of the error message: Column 'links_g_contentcount' cannot be null Probably just something minor. But i hope you can tell me how to fix it so i do not have to look deeper into this myself. 🙂
  6. https://invisioncommunity.com/files/file/7756-sd-company-directory/ I bought this off the developers website just a few days ago. Unfortunately i realized he passed away soon after the purchase. Well now i know why its not available in the marketplace anymore... Maybe anybody can help me with my problem anyway? After installing there are only entries for countries and not for cities and states. Can someone give me an .sql dump containing the cities and states for import? I do not want to add all states and cities by hand. I need at least states and cities for united states and canada but "worldwide" would be best.
  7. Well i had the same issue. Here is how you can archieve this: Disable check links: # ###################### Open "applications/links/sources/link/link.php" and replace: (appears 2 times, change both) ------------------------------------------------------------ throw new \InvalidArgumentException( 'link_bad_url_url' ); with: ----- //throw new \InvalidArgumentException( 'link_bad_url_url' ); replace: (appears 2 times, change both) ------------------------------ $msg = \IPS\Member::loggedIn()->language()->addToStack( 'link_bad_url', FALSE, array( 'sprintf' => array( $response->httpResponseCode ) ) ); throw new \InvalidArgumentException( $msg ); with: ----- //$msg = \IPS\Member::loggedIn()->language()->addToStack( 'link_bad_url', FALSE, array( 'sprintf' => array( $response->httpResponseCode ) ) ); //throw new \InvalidArgumentException( $msg );
  8. Well you cant stop that anyway. And if you are concerned about "basic users" generating problems you could simply make it so it can be turned on/off by using constants.php for example. (So basic users would not even be able to download plugins.) Just as a suggestion. I would love to see that in a future version. 🙂
  9. Yes i also think everything important has already been said. And this issue aside i still think ips is the best platform available. May i make a suggestion on closing? Why not simply allow downloads parallel to the "idiot install"? This way there would be no tradeoff but even a gain.
  10. There is no good free alternative anymore these days. Back in the days there have been lots of free alternatives which some of them have been pretty good. Mybb 1.6 was the pinnacle. Great free forum software with lots of great plugins, most of them free too. Yeah but it has been going down hill ever since 1.8. 2.0 got cancelled & 1.9 is due for years now. They never added mobile support / responsive templates in 1.8 so out of the box its still not responsive in 2020. I suspect they have been sabotaged or bought out by some bigger company. Simply because 1.6 was so good that there basically was no need to spend money on a paid solution. So it was dangerous for companys like jelsoft, woltlab or invision power services. phpBB is and ever has been a joke. It works but that's about it. Everything else is even worse. But man was mybb 1.6 great. One great thing still true even for 1.8 is that its not bloated with a lot of crap like xenforo or ips is these days. No developer tools bigger than a whole forum package back in the days and stuff like that. Its pretty simple to develop own plugins and it works like a champ. Same is true for vbulletin 3 for example.
  11. At the end of the day we live in a capitalist society. So customers and there money decide which companys and products survive. That being said xenforo already has the by far biggest market share. I suspect it will go up even more to the disadvantage of the invision power services company, soon. Given your new business practises i would actually like to see that happen.
  12. BTW: That means the 1,5k i spent on IPS right now is like throwing 1,5k out of the window in the long run. Because you basically got nothing in 10 years from now. Yeah nobody would pay much for 10 year old software anyway but you wont even have the 10 year old software by then. 😄 * Yes you can still run your existing installation. But you know the point.
  13. The point is with vbulletin 3 for example i can perform a fresh install today. Then i can go ahead and install the plugins i want. (From packages i downloaded before of sites like vbulletin.org) You cant do such thing with ips 4.5 in 10 years from now. (i assume) The marketplace probably does not exist (at least in this form) anymore by then so you wont be able to install anything from it. And you cant download the full packages anymore since 4.5. So your basically screwed if you want to perform a fresh install of ips and plugins in like 10 years from now. Thats my whole point basically. 🙂
  14. I just dont like planned obsolescence. Im still running forum software (modified) thats 20 years old on some of my other projects. Try installing IPS 4.5 and plugins off the marketplace in 20 years from now. Good luck! (At least without using pirated software) * Same reason why i never liked linux. But there you could at least run your own (offline) repository if you want to. That basically fixes it but is a hassle compared to just downloading one big package which contains everything (including dependencies) needed to install a software (without downloading stuff off the internet) as it was in windows ever since. Bevor they started ing it up by implementing a lot of crap starting with version 8 or 10. Thats why im using Windows 10 LTSC which strips much of that crap + some tweaks. * Yeah i know thats why you guys do it. You want to prevent that from happening. But that stinks. I think the customer should decide what he does with the software he BOUGHT. If he decides to reinstall it in 20 years from now there should be no asking "why would you want to do that?". He bought it. he owns it. His decision. Thats how it should be in my opinion. Think about it. 10 or 20 year old forum software like vbulletin still works like a champ and gets the job done just fine. Add php 7 support & responsive/mobile support and you would be good to go for 2021. There would be absolutely no need to buy modern software in most cases. BUT unfortunately there is no php 7 and mobile support (at least out of the box and up to snuff with ips 4) cause its EOL. Why? So the developers can charge big for new versions and updates. Good thing is i probably wont be using ips 4.5 in 20 years from now. (I'd rather still use vb3 and wbb2 by then) So i guess i can live with whats going one here. I still dont like the direction in that you guys are heading (basically already headed), though BTW: My car is 50 years old too... Still running like a champ. No need to upgrade. Its actually better than the new crap you can buy today. Its got a big v8 putting out 200hp to the wheels, automatic transmission, ac, cruise control... You name it. Why would you want to upgrade to an electric vehicle where you have to lease the batteries and where recharging takes HOURS? These electric vehicles also got no power when going higher speeds.
  15. Where do i find the TAR or XML files? There are no TAR or XML files in these folders Just the plugin files. But thats not the complete package you would need for installing without using marketplace.
  16. Does these files contain the unencrypted source? But i cant reinstall the plugins at another ips installation by downloading and reuploading the files from the plugins or applications folder right? Im pretty sure this wont work, otherwise it would be a workaround for the marketplace feature and need to contain the install routine, which i guess they delete at the end of the installation so you dont get it. Im selfhosted. Can you explain how to do this? Where are the tar and xml files stored?
  17. Well i bought my license just a few days ago, spent the time until now to research which addons i want to buy just to find out i wont even get the source of the plugins i PAY for. This is really great. Anybody know if xenforo still gives you the source of the plugins you buy? lol sorry but i dont like to get treated like a fool Need to seriously give my decision to use ips a second thought under this unexpected circumstances Its a shame as i think ips is way superior to xenforo and other alternatives Edit: With a new license it seems like i cant download 4.4 and older versions of plugins (for 4.4), right?
  18. You telling me there is no way to download plugins / bypass marketplace anymore? I have not used IP.Board/IPS for quite some time. When did they come up with that GORGEOUS idea?
  19. I just bought a plugin but when i click on "Download this file" i only get a popup telling me the following: Yeah im oldschool. I want to download my plugin and save it on my hdd. I then want to manually upload it through the acp to install as i always did for decades. So question is how do i download plugins to my local hdd? I do not want to use that app store crap.
