  1. In most cases, a configuration set will not be needed. It allows you to add a set of defined rules from AWS to your emails that get specified in the email header. These are things that are invisible to the average user. For example, you can have AWS track metrics on your emails sent and then have the metrics published to another AWS service. This is advanced usage case but possible with configuration sets.
  2. I think most of the posts in this topic have covered it. Utilizing the API over SMTP is significantly faster. If your community is sending many emails a day, this will help speed up your site.
  3. Service refers to the software being used in this case. So in AWS, you will have a Wordpress user with their own credentials and a separate IPB user with their own credentials.
  4. As long as the AWS Access Key has the right policies attached, yes you can use the same credentials. It comes down to more user preference. I typically sort my credentials by service so I can rotate them individually. That way if your Wordpress installation is compromised, IPB will remain safe. Also, you may attach different policies for IPB than for Wordpress which helps you keep each credential with the least amount of access as possible.
  5. Good news! Application has been released!
  6. Application has been submitted and is awaiting approval!
  7. Version 1.0.2


    This simple lightweight application allows you to send emails from the Invision Power Board platform through the AWS Simple Email Service API. This application sits on top of your configured email delivery methods and overrides your default settings. With the click of one button, enable and disable the service. The application also features powerful logs to help diagnose delivery issues and improve throughput and deliverability. Amazon SES is one of the most robust and cheapest transactional email service providers on the market. While this application is extremely lightweight and easy to
  8. I just sent @AlexWebsites an updated version with some updates he suggested. I will submit it for review tomorrow and it will be up to @Daniel F and the team to review and release it.
  9. @Chris Anderson, all valid questions. The application is extremely light weight. At this point, we are only overriding 2 functions to introduce the functionality. Having said that, as IPB changes and updates are made, this makes it extremely easy to update alongside IPB. IPB devs has already done the leg work in developing the application to be easily extended. This is how they have already integrated Sendgrid, SMTP, PHPMailer etc. These are all extensions of their base Email class. To be honest, I am surprised they have not included many other email service options as it was very easy to buil
  10. I've developed an integration application that will allow your IPB community to send emails via the AWS SES API. I will release it to the marketplace however looking for some folks to test it. Please send me a PM if interested.

    Integrate Your Community Into The Workplace! Bring together your Invision Power Board community with the ultimate collaboration hub for your team! Slack Notifications leverages the internal notification system of Invision Power Board to relay all your important notifications to your Slack account. Slack Notifications works on the frontend notification system and allows your community members to add as many slack channels as they want, routing all their notifications to multiple channels, all from within Invision Power Board. This application is plug and play and allows your community to c
  14. @StormyWays13, if you are truly going to be basing your business off hosting services, I highly suggest you stay with WHMCS. Commerce does not contain nearly the amount of features or services that WHMCS does. I have used both extensively and I am consistently feeling handicapped by Commerce. As @AlexWebsites, there is very little community discussion and support with Commerce as well. I am personally in the middle of moving my commerce based hosting products to WHMCS!
  15. Version 1.0.3


    This lightweight plugins enables your Invision Power Board (IPB) software to act as a web hosting management platform for Reseller Hosting, similar to WHMCS. Unlike a Dedicated or VPS with root access, Reseller Hosting is a cheap alternative for web designers and administrators to host several websites using cPanel's Web Hosting Manager (WHM). Reseller Hosting is offered by many of the top web hosting companies. IPB does not natively support cPanel/WHM accounts without root access thus making resell hosting through IPB difficult. This plugin allows you the ability specify a package/plan name t
  16. We can forgo this question. I have turned it into an application and will not mess with IPB's native tables.
  17. Quick question - working on developing a frontend notification plugin and adding a new 'type' within the notification preference settings. The column definition for 'preference' within the 'core_notification_preferences' table is set(email,inline). Would my plugin be rejected if on install my plugin changed the column definition to add a 3rd type?
  18. @SJ77 of course! Apparently there’s a discepency in PHP config in my root directory and the directory the checks are being performed in.
  19. IPB is telling me I have the infamous dangerous functions enabled although when looking at my PHP configuration, it's clear I have them disabled. However, when looking at the PHP settings through IPB's support tool, it says they are NOT disabled. How come the difference? http://community.deschutesdesigngroup.com/phpinfo.php
  20. @opentype When they first released it in one of the 4.4.0 Beta's, I was able to get it up and running and had several successful PayPal transactions with reoccurring charges, however several beta's later it **** the bed and completely stopped working for me. Very frustrating.
  21. Is there anyway to fix this in the mean time? I am compiling my application and missing several resources from the set_resources folder. Also, it is effecting my clients. The theme.xml contains all the appropriate resources, but from some reason, they are missing resource in their set_resources folder as well.
  22. That is what I had imagined. Thanks for the clarification.
  23. Quick question, ya'll know which is run first in the upgrade routine? The queries.json file or an upgrade.php file if you have one? In my next version, i'll be adding a table in the queries.json file, then hoping to insert an entry in the upgrade.php file. Is that kosher?
  24. Check out this application which will make your life a lot easier:
