  1. Bugs should be reported in IPS Resources (Menu) > Bug Tracker.
  2. Have you set a Cron job for background tasks? I did this and things went from turtle speed to warp speed. Very easy to do.
  3. Totally agree plus have the ability to mass delete attachments based on search criteria in the ACP. I have 1500 pages of of attachments that I want to delete. Going to take a while doing it one at a time.
  4. So the one email a day option isn't suitable then? Sounds like you want this option but with a further option of what time of day it gets sent to you so that you get it at a time convenient to you rather than whatever time the forum system does it.
  5. Admins should have the capacity to delete conversations regardless of whether people have left or not. I can think of a number of reasons for wanting to delete a conversation e.g. a new member spams a whole heap of other members via the conversation system. Wouldn't you want to delete all traces of these conversations? Assuming the Admin doesn't delete a conversation (usually because they weren't involved) then the conversation should be deleted from the database after the last person leaves. Then, I would like some sort of mass deletion option to delete conversations where no reply has been posted for x amount of days e.g. 365 days. That then keeps the database size down. I can see some lazy members not deleting conversations. I don't want these redundant conversations wasting database space.
  6. So you don't want an email notification after each new reply but you don't want a daily email notification. When should the email notification be sent? Personally I would have thought if you're around and available to help then just clicking on new content would be a better system to use. That then saves any emails.
  7. My understanding is you can't delete conversations aka personal messages. You can only leave a conversation. Other parties to the conversation still have access to the conversation until they leave. Problem with that is many people are lazy and won't bother. The database is going to end up over time being bloated by old and useless conversations. IPS - correct me if I'm wrong. I as an admin want the ability to delete a conversation so that it's gone completely so that no one has access to it anymore. I also want the ability to mass delete conversations based on search criteria e.g. over 12 months old.
  8. My post count dropped from about 40,000 to 20,000 after upgrading to ver 4. That 40,000 included pruned topics. Have to say I was a little bit miffed that my count went down. I would have expected it to stay the same.
  9. Are you just trying to display custom profile field information in the left hand user pane in a topic? If so then it's just a matter of entering in some code as per my post below. Check out the code I'm using in "Display format". I use similar code to display a number of custom profile fields e.g. software version:
  10. Custom profile fields are still there in version 4. Here's a screengrab from my registration form.
  11. One thing to try after upgrading is to recache things. Bit confusing in version 4 but you go to System > Support as per the attached image and click the radio button like what I have done. Now click on continue. You should end up recaching your forums. BTW has your upgrade finished. It's takes some hours after the upgrade is complete for all of the background tasks to complete. You can check this on the System Dashboard page at the bottom. If all else fails, file a support ticket.
  12. There was a selective quote mod for IPB 3 that worked reasonably well but not as slick as selective quoting with Xenforo. Here's hoping IPS adds this to 4.1 as it's what I would describe as basic functionality.
  13. My downloads and forum attachments were screwed after the upgrade. IPS came to the rescue and fixed things. You'll need to file a support ticket.
  14. You could manually create a page with html and link to it from your forum. I do this for a reviews index page. I then have a "Reviews" link on all of my forum pages.
