  1. Tell your admin to check out the cityfan rpm repository. It has an updated version of Curl for older Centos installs.
  2. So you want to punish someone without anyone else knowing? If you don't want them to be able to do anything for some period you can simply disable their account from logging in for whatever period of time you specify. Nothing looks to be amiss to anyone else but the user isn't going to be able to do anything on the forum for as long as you've specified. They can still visit your community, but they just can't log in. As for free software that allows for this, I just checked phpBB and MyBB, two fairly popular free forums and I can't find a way to do what you are asking. You can change a pe
  3. When you select a gallery, the interface is a rather large rectangle. Still, there's a lot of empty space around the selection box even so. The overlay box changes size dynamically later in the selection and upload process, so I don't see why the initial box has to be as large as it is.
  4. Are you asking to be able to revoke only some of the features that being in the group or revoke everything in that group? Either way it seems pretty simple to me, but perhaps I'm missing something. It doesn't sound like the user needs to remain in the original group. What's the point of that? What benefits do you or anyone else get in keeping them in a group without the permissions or features that group permits? Remove the user from the group in question. That would remove their ability to access any of the special features or areas that the group permits. Alternately, create a
  5. It was just confirmed as part of v4.4.
  6. It's probably not specifically about the feature set for most people, I'd guess. It's about allowing those of us with an existing Square merchant account to use it here as well. Having to use two different merchants is a serious pain and can be somewhat expensive for those who have paid for infrastructure with Square. Both Square and Stripe are popular with small business and having both would make IPS Commerce more useful out of the box.
  7. This might be a cheaper and better fit if you don't need all of the features of Newsletters and your members are set to receive emails on new PMs:
    This review is currently based on the 1.0 version of the product. It's under active development, so a lot will likely change in future versions. This LMS is off to a good start. It is clean and, as LMSes go, easy to learn (especially if you're already familiar with the IPS Community system). It's been designed well by people who understand the needs of an LMS. For those of you not familiar, a true learning management system (LMS) is something you might use in a school, or more apropos right now, a commercial training site, for reasons detailed in a minute. It manages not only content
  8. While I don't think that IPS needs to make an LMS part of the core offerings, I do think it's a great thing that there will be a third party offering for this. It's not something everyone needs, but those who do typically struggle with existing solutions. An LMS is far more than quizzes and videos and anyone with a need for an LMS knows what I'm talking about. An LMS is about education management, and if you're using IPS for your intranet or a private community where education and training are essential, then having an LMS as part of IPS would be very important to reduce friction and the
  9. You might want to open a ticket about this if you want to contribute code. I can say that I used to work for some large companies and under no circumstances would any of them take ideas or content/code from anyone for fear of legal repercussions later. I'm not sure how IPS would handle this.
  10. And also take a large hit in performance, plus, storing multi-GB files in a database isn't recommended, but is something the file system can handle.
  11. In a number of popular web scripts like Drupal, the software has the ability to specify a non-public location for the software to store and serve files from. IPS doesn't allow this, you can only specify file system locations that are within the web root of the account (meaning that there is direct access to the files via a URL). For security, best practice is to store data outside of your web root location. This stops people from uploading files and then accessing them via direct URL and potentially compromising the account or even the server (particularly on servers where the web server does
  12. I may be wrong about this, because I've never really tried to do this on my forums, but I don't think you can specify the maximum size of an uploaded image in terms of pixels (say 1280x1280), you can only restrict the size of files in terms of KB in the group permissions for Gallery. You can specify the maximum image size to save for posts, but I don't think that affects Gallery. What you may have changed is the thumbnail size (IPS has settings for small and large downsampled images). The pixel dimensions controls the intermediate picture sizes, but the full-sized original remains availab
  13. FZ, I work for a company that supports thousands of WordPress installs (really) and I can tell you from personal experience, WordPress does not update without issues, most especially if you are several versions behind, particularly if you're using plugins or third party themes that haven't been updated either. I can't count the number of installs that ended up at a blank white screen with a 500 error after an upgrade like that. I'm not trying to say IPS software is perfect. No software is, and perhaps they will make improvements to the upgrade progress based on their experience with
  14. There isn't one there in IPS 4. The various security related settings like two factor authentication appear in the Settings section. If you're looking for things like the old setting to allow you to have the web server provide another layer of password security that used to be in 3.x, it's gone. You can easily set web server password authentication for your admin area manually using one of many websites that explain how to do it or in your web hosting control panel, as many of them provide tools to do this very thing. In terms of getting warnings about unsafe server settings and the
