  1. I'd suggest a ticket/bug too, if you are sure the criteria are correctly set. Although unrelated: I was actually having a discussion (on anther site) about something similar a few days ago , generally computers are not *that* good at creating real random numbers, there's nearly always some pseudo randomness even if the seed is reset often but generally it should not really be easily detectable without some kind of detailed pattern search. I'll spare you my findings on this as its off topic and a bit boring too! Back on topic, I had a thought if you're using some kind of external caching that *might* possibly (just) be causing it but that seems unlikely somehow. Ticket is the best option here I think as indicated above. 🙂

    I recall suggesting this (or at least, I thought about it) I'm not sure I actually posted about it though, which does not help! Also, if you change the filtering options, for example filter by size or filename then delete one attachment , upon your redirection to the list of them the ordering has reverted back to the default of "Upload Date" ( 😢 ) , this can be slightly annoying in some cases if you wish to remove several at once, however to be completely fair a checkbox to select all on a page would alleviate this small niggle.

    Any "classic" screen shots of IPB?

    Maybe But... ... that won't show a (decent) selection of the ACP area's, well not easily found ones anyway plus the pics are half setup to try to show each 'area' of both front end and admin side too. Not sure ? Try to find a selection of Nexus pics via that link.

    Please feel completely free to make use of any of the pic's in the .zips or otherwise if you wish. I know some of them could probably do with a tiny bit of a tidy/crop possibly.

    Here are some larger Nexus pics showing the 'core' as such as well as Content and Customer Management Thanks @Matt for assisting with these.

    I know they are too small. There's a reason for that, even though the install was a test localhost one... @Matt has the full sized ones in a PM for the moment...

    99% sure you're correct on that, Client testing etc. Ioncube / time limited etc etc

    No. Do you remember IPSBeyond ? And from that the Resources site aka IPSResources ? That was "Nexus" powered. The ACP is dark gray(grey?) / black. Beta downloads of various elements of it were available at one time, I still have them! I don't have any screenshots of it to hand unfortunately. Think of that 'Nexus' as the 'core' and then you'd add on things like Downloads/CMS/Billing etc. Similar in a way to how the Client Area was in years past. Not related to Commerce/Nexus/Commerce that you see in the 3x and 4x series... There is this info in the News/Blog really anyway with a bit of digging and the wayback machine. EDIT... I have found some screenshots however I want to check first before I post them... 🙂

    Probably best thought of as a CMS , we are talking about 2007 or thereabouts (I think) here though... EDIT... > https://invisioncommunity.com/news/product-updates/2097-nexus-and-dynamic-legacy/

    Classic Blue ? There were at least a couple of versions of it for the 3x series, possibly the early 4x series too (can't remember off hand) It did suit the 2x series very well all in all imo, probably (just my own opinion/guess) why it stayed for so long with minor updates and tweaks, after all "its not broken so why fix it" 🙂 , although the newer design of the 3x series meant a new skin was needed. To balance this out the black 'Pro' skin included in the later 23x releases was slightly easier to tweak if all you wanted was a few colour changes etc etc. This skin did after a few months grow its appeal to me, twas my default. On the other side at 3x there was the VSE to make this even easier.

    Well I may try to get some screenshot's of those too at some near future point. 🙂

    I did at one point have a few "look back" pics of early Gallery (v2 series iirc) / Downloads (v1 series) / Blog (v1 series) but sadly cannot find them, also a few pics of IP.Converge in action and Nexus (with its apps cms/downloads/billing/hosting etc), again I think I've lost those over the years Thankfully just the screen shot's, not the products themselves! Do not appear to have anything older aka IP.Dynamic etc

    @Matt No, I don't have any @Adriano Faria Thanks for the topic link. I am attaching zip's of each version to this reply for anyone's convenience and curiosity. These are not neatly trimmed sadly, unfortunately the neater ones I cannot find. However having said that they are all there and not bad might just need cropping if you intended to re-use them. Inside each zip there's two folders one with a couple of installer progress pics and then a folder covering most area's of the software, topic / forum view , profile view etc etc and so on: 101.zip 131.zip 200.zip 217.zip 220.zip 236.zip 305.zip 314.zip 323.zip 😄 I was once asked why I had not covered "every version", the reasoning was simple: 1. I tried where possible to use the 'last version of that 'line' to get the most up-to-date images 2. There was no visible (or very little visible) differences between say 230 and 236, the changes were mainly code based. Same for say 320 vs 323 etc 3. There is no 33x or 34x set as at the time of creation, these did not really exist or iirc 33x was the newest and current. Having said that they look similar enough to the 32x series to not justify creation of a set. Enjoy. 🙂 Obviously goes without saying the above zips contain images only, there's no products within. I still have them all actually!

    I did think about the copy/paste effect, then thought about some js perhaps (not my area really) to prevent it accepting pasted content in the confirm input box*** but that may annoy the user filling in the page and/or be more bother than gain... *** Just the 'confirm' box should have it disabled , rather than the initial one.
