  1. That looks very good πŸ™‚
  2. I may or may not have been studying the roles to see if I can hop "back onboard" πŸ˜‰
  3. Oh I'll admit I don't think I'd checked the ACP out, the front end was completely blank and in the logs themselves I'd found said error and it sprung to mind what the likely cause was, so I stopped looking elsewhere. Tested on localhost dev with display_errors enabled (purposely at php7.0.3) and it displayed said error but that was expected.
  4. Maybe to the init.php file, I'm not sure. Although it did not catch me out, one site I was looking at had by some chance switched back to php7.0 , this turned out to be due to replacing the 'use version x' in a .htaccess file being lost. Anyway, currently if you attempt to run (run not install) the suite on say php7.0.x or lower, you tend to end up with a blank page or if you are lucky an error such as... Parse Error : Unexpected '?', expecting variable (T_VARIABLE) init.php on line 1413 ... or something quite similar to that. This may be very confusing to some,
  5. If its a huge quantity being purchased then I'd suggest a ticket first to see what the situation is , say for instance you wanted like 50+ licences etc I'd fire off a ticket first πŸ™‚ I could not (I only did a cursory search) find anything immediately relevant for "bulk" , "multiple" or "volume" purchases (that would be relevant) however there is absolutely -nothing- to lose by asking even if its like your 3rd etc etc. I could just about remember what the situation was but I don't want to post that as 1. I don't have the authority really and 2. It may of changed so I'd not want to give
  6. Bump for Matt ;) You know, I can half-sense some Blog / Downloads / Gallery screeenshot's appearing here soon πŸ˜‰ possibly this weekend or shortly thereafter.
  7. Usually the case, prices drop until it becomes obsolete then after a couple of years when stocks have dried up the price can rise. That RD-Ram might now fall into this category if its the one I'm thinking of, where you needed a 'blank' if you did not have a mirrored pair. Its not that long ago (well it was really I suppose) I was paying Β£1 or Β£2 per MB (yes megabyte) for PC-66 sticks... :D
  8. πŸ˜„ , I just put in the "as you know" after I saw your reg date so figured there was no need/point to go into specifics or a screenshot of that section. πŸ™‚ Oh OK. πŸ™‚ I can understand that. It did look not far off from how its done in "other software" back then, in particular the one you mention and that version, it looks very similar. 'Folders' of images in effect for the end user to pick from. I do think this would likely be a lot more suitable for a third party application though somehow. Might even be a small $ / € / Β£ (pick your currency as appropriate or otherwise) in it if ther
  9. I have had this at least once, a few years back when trying to find suitable server ram (ECC stuff) , cut a long story short I did end up eventually hunting down some listed ram which worked properly rather than the usual "compatible with" used stuff found elsewhere.
  10. There is that, although I thought in a way it was in the past as most would prefer to choose their own. IPB2x as you know had built in galleries for them, I just mention this last point given your reg date πŸ™‚ I know you've been here erm "a while" much like me! πŸ˜„ Having said that, I just looked at the highest content contribution from my membership. The top five here (including me) only two others have uploaded an image of their own. Looking generally it seems to be roughly about 50/50 on if they have added their own or not. I do have a non-standard 'by default' one though. I'm not on the
  11. 34x had an option to just show or hide them , nothing more than that a simple yes/no binary choice. Previous versions I think just had an option to remove it from the jumplist dropdown rather than a depth setting, but I obviously don't have access (and can't remember for sure that far back, it was years ago to be fair) the exact specific details. Point here being some form of 'control' for this in IPS4 would be an excellent idea / feedback hence my reply. :)
  12. I'd like to see the return of the option to display them or not on the forum index or perhaps even better some numerical input where you could specify the depth (for want of a better word) to show, such as 1 , 2 or 3 perhaps. By that I mean if you have subforums within subforums how "far down" to show. :)
    Another excellent idea from the author. This really is something that should be built in I think or perhaps an option offered for it at least. πŸ™‚ Does what it "says on the tin" so to speak.
  13. The above used to be the case where there was a separate checkbox for upload and download for each group. This is from the last of the 3x series, 349: I can see why it was removed however it did have some merit. I can tell you one quite common source of confusion for new admins (I used to see it a fair bit in the Peer to Peer support forums) was the fact that uploaded images are attachments and if you disable 'download' for an attached image you are in effect saying "can view it" (or not) , there was actually a third party tweak at the time to exempt images from this behaviour,
  14. All the 2.0.x series have that coloured sidebar. It went awol at 2.1.x although the main 'panel' area gained a bit more colour, increased a bit more with sensible warnings/hints etc with the later 2.2. and then the 2.3.x series. All the 2.x series had a scrollbar unless you had a mass screen resolution (at that time when I think 1024x768 was normal and 1280x1024 for those with a slightly bigger wallet for a monitor perhaps) :) Not sure really what you mean by "changed much" , unless I answered to your satisfaction in my two sentences above. πŸ˜€
