    How can I put a space between icons (see attachment)? Thanks for your help, --E.
  4. Makoto

    Recently I found myself without my former tech-help guy, because I had let him go due to him becoming very busy with his real job. So I was eager to get someone new to help with the occasional tech issue, upgrading, etc. After studying some of the support threads in this forum, I noticed that Makoto was not only often helpful on the boards, but also detailed and thorough. I contacted him and after a couple of back and forths, we agreed he could help me with my forum search situation. I found Makoto to be very knowledgeable and quick to respond to requests and questions. I was most impressed with how he was willing to briefly explain the how's and why's about the work he would do for me -- this is so helpful if you're like me who is not exactly an expert at IPS and server issues. I felt very comfortable that Makoto knew his craft and could handle issues that presented themselves. I would definitely recommend this services to other forum admins. --E.
  5. I can't download IPB anymore as the download button is cut off, was going to report but saw it was already reported: http://community.invisionpower.com/bugs.html/ips-web-site-and-client-area-not-for-software-issues/download-window-cut-off-r49091/ Fix?
  6. I would love to be able to individually "protect" a post/thread/attachment so that the post/thread/attachment will not be deleted even when a member (or admin) removes all of a member's posts/threads/attachments. Reasoning: There are special and valuable threads that members post that you don't want altered ever, and to be able to lock in (protect) the content contained in those special threads would be very handy indeed. That way if a member or admin deletes that member's posts (for any reason... mass prunning, banning, etc.), at least the very special threads/posts/attachments won't be lost. If there is a way to do this already available, please excuse and direct me to the info, if possible. Thanks!
  7. Just to make sure we are all on the same page: Please note as stated in my original post, I'm referring to a forum where you set the settings as shown below, so that a given group can see the topic titles, but not the content of those topics. So what I'm saying is: Members who are allowed to see both the topic titles and the topic content, still see the "Protected forum" sign.
  8. At least in IPB 3.3.4, that is incorrect. Here is a screenshot of what a member with access sees when looking at one of my protected subforums: In the latest version of IPB has this been updated? If so, please excuse.
  9. Hi Raz, I don't know if understand your question, but... The access is not the issue, it's the wording that appears next to a forum title that a member sees even when he/she has access. When a member who has access sees "Protected forum", he/she may assume that access is not granted and move on, when in fact they can access the forum. For those who have access, it should read, "Protected forum, you have access." If you are new to IPB, then this special permission might be confusing.
  10. Adriano, I had this hook installed on my board. However, after doing a lot of testing, members who have access to a forum where no one can see each other's posts, still cannot see the posts of the forum moderator. I have checked everything, and can't figure it out. Permissions are set correctly for the member wanting to see the forum moderator's posts, but still cannot get past the topic list. When he clicks on the topic list to see a moderator's post, permission is denied. Thoughts? --Eddie.
  11. Hi, Suggestion: When a forum is set up so that open members can see the topic titles, but not the topic content, it is appropriate that they see the "Protected Forum" in place of the last post info. However, on that same type of forum, those who DO have access, should see that sign (so they are reassured it is protected), BUT, they should also be told they have access. I have members who don't click on the protected forum even when they have access to it... they hesitate to click on something that says protected. So my suggestion is that for those who have access, the sign be changed to: Protected Forum. You Have Access. Or something similar. Possible? Thanks! --Eddie.
  12. I'm not sure how to inquire about a ticket that hasn't received a reply in almost 48 hours, so I'll try here. Could I get someone to look at Ticket #: 735757 please? I understand it's a more complicated issue to do with Nexus, but I feel where it has been sitting in general support without a reply for almost 2 days that there hasn't been a tech familiar enough with the issue to look into it. If that's the case, a bump to T2 by now may have been appropriate, or some kind of response at least would be appreciated :) Thanks.
  13. Watched Items / VNC List Serious Bug

    I too run a very large forum. This feature is absolutely essential. I'm posting to advance the notion that this needs to be fixed quickly. --E.
