    IPS does not involve itself in politics. We serve, work with and employ people all over the world and of course want to see everyone treated fairly and appropriately. Personally speaking, my ban list would be short and sweet: - Brits - Joel I'm just kidding, brits. In all seriousness, there's such anger, hatred and divisiveness in every corner of the web at present -- let's keep this community relatively friendly.

    GLAD you asked. Personal Store Link > https://invisionpower.com/files/114025-adriano-faria ^^^THIS, more than anything!!! PLEASEEEEEEEEEE Imagine if that link worked as you think it should, It would be the marketplace with all the normal, whats new, highest rated etc.. only the query to load the files would have a WHERE USERID=114025. IE: Only Adrianos stuff. Why have that you ask? Well, Adriano can then advertise his "store" on other sites such as facebook, tumblr, and other forums. It empowers users to advertise for YOUR site!. Might not be so good for downloads specific to IPS but what if someone was using marketplace for stock photos. users don't want to advertise for everyone's stuff. They need a URL they can hand out that leads back to just THEIR OWN stuff. Some personal ownership empowers sellers. (don't even bother telling me about the profile page) An easy button for sellers that copies a link and lets them socialize their "store".... Goodness that would be like magic, so much potential to gain traffic by turning sellers into an army of advertisers!!!!! Clean up app to work for other types of files beyond hooks and mods. I sell photos. Why do I need to see "Ver 1.0.0" on every photo in the marketplace? Want to hide version options all together for both sides of isle. Way for marketplace "sellers" to bulk mail customers. (without knowing who the customers are) My sellers would like to thank their customers. If I let them see who the buyers are they will make side deals outside of my site. Can't allow this but would like a way for sellers to market to buyers and thank buyers without knowing who they are. Improved metrics and data feedback For sellers it would be nice if they had some stats. Like sales, and number of transactions (count) this is at a minimum. Right now they have nothing! For Admin, would be nice to have many more ways to see what is going on. Sales, Transaction (count) and Profit would be nice to chart over time. For now there is "income" which is near meaningless. How am I supposed to run a real business with that? Seriously? I am not being sarcastic. How? Stats per user for admin , aka By user stats for ADMIN - per tax requirements etc. When it's time to do taxes it's going to be hell trying to figure out who needs a 1099 need by user amounts paid for a specific time period at a minimum. Some way to be notified when a new file, file comment or file review needs approved!!! It's been harder than hell for me to try and figure out what is waiting on approval. I am constantly checking the marketplace, the files, the reviews. This is unmanageable. Some sort of process allowing users to become sellers. Sometimes we don't want ALL users to be sellers. Shouldn't there be some kind of process that can glue this together. Like an application that can, if approved, change groups for the user so members can then be sellers? I am just getting started.. there is soooooooo much potential I couldn't possibly list it all. We could get into geographic tools and all kinds of stuff that I have seen in other places on the web. The app does what it's supposed to do, here on IPB main site but just doesn't feel robust enough to run a serious business and monetize ones site in other cases (I know, that's just my opinion man). I would love to see it get some attention and grow into something powerful. Thank you

    This plugin will disable the updating of advertisement impressions within the Invision Power Suite. Most third-party advertisement integrations already handles impressions counting. This plugin will remove one database query from each page load where advertisement spots defined in the advertisement setup in Invision Power Suite are present. Features: No settings. One language string. One informative message in the Advertisement area. Plug and play. Install it by simply uploading the .xml in the Plugins-section of your admin panel. No bugs. (Faults in grammar or spelling does not count) Please note: This plugin does not disable form options related to impressions or the display of "Impressions" in the advertisement list or any other areas (for example in Commerce) where it may display. There is however a message reminding you about the presence of the plugin in the Advertisement setup area in the admin control panel.

    I think they're referring to scope. What they see as something small should be free. Wether the OP understands this or not, the IPS Marketplace is not the size of the Apple or Google Play App Stores. Developers here don't build small ad-supported apps that can be sold for free, but still generate a small amount of revenue. As small as the IPS Marketplace is, and it's small compared to the stores noted above, free just isn't sustainable if you're trying to keep your hobby funded. While the initial download is free, it did take someones time to create. And what most don't consider, is the fact that most developers don't want to see their plugins fall into disrepair due to an upgrade, so continuous development is required to support it, or dozens of requests from those that downloaded it asking for help on how to install the plugin. That development and/or support time isn't free and if you have a lot of free items can consume you. You can't compare prices here to that of a larger App Store, simply not the same market and the business models are quite different. While it's free to you from an App Store, most are ad-supported, which still generate some revenue for a developer. That's how they can make it free.

    https://simpletractors.com/ Now 18+ year old site for antique Simplicity & Allis-Chalmers garden tractors. Using all the apps, plus several add-ons and plug-ins. Restricted access, but this will get you in (at mid-level access) to get a better sense: User: Josh PW: tester Still chasing some bugs, but it's getting close, and good enough to disclose. Though I don't have all (~1500 pages) of the old content republished yet, there's enough to give a sense of it all. Pages databases for that content, plus Artices and Mike John's Collections app for a "tractor Garage" or Registry. Must give some shout-outs for all the help: @onlyME for a few custom plug-ins, some Marketplace plug-ins, data conversion of the Registry and a LOT of help with the whole post-conversion actions @opentype for a custom theme that captured the clean "antique" look I wanted @Adriano Faria for patiently helping me with plug-ins and apps @Mike John for more apps/plug-ins, guidance and patience, before, after and still... And to the whole IPS Support staff for their patience, especially Stuart Silvester who did the initial custom conversion, and the whole gang for dealing with my "newbie" reports, panics, questions and issues.

    A lot of the page speed insights require server-side configuration changes and aren't controllable at the software level, however having said that, I'm actually in the process of reviewing page speed reports for an upcoming release incidentally to see where we can make improvements.

    Google has recently been stressing that sites should use secure connections (served via HTTPS) whenever possible. They have recently also started warning sites that collect password on non-secure pages and will also be updating Google Chrome to warn users when a password is being entered on a non-secure page. You can read more information at Google and a good article on Ars Technica. There are two ways on IPS Community Suite to avoid these alerts. Keep in mind that doing nothing will not cause you any problems, your site will still work, but users will get warnings and this may impact how people perceive joining your community. Make your Community 100% Secure The easiest option is to make every page on your IPS Community Suite use a secure connection. To do this you would need to ensure your web host has HTTPS support enabled on your site and then simply edit conf_global.php and change the URL field to https:// and that's it. One thing to keep in mind is that your users, if you allow it, can still paste in links to externally hosted images which might not be secure. This does not impact the security of your site but it may generate a browser warning indicating your site has "mixed content" meaning some is secure and some is not. You can optionally enable the Image Proxy feature to make externally linked images route through a proxy on your local server to maintain 100% secure content. Image Proxy Options Only Login/Registration Forms and AdminCP Secure If you prefer not to use HTTPS for your entire site, we do have a setting to only use secure connections for login, registration, and AdminCP. Use HTTPS for Logins and AdminCP When the login-only secure option is enabled the quick login drop down is also disabled and instead users are sent to a full page to login. This is a small change required to avoid browser warnings. Although the quick login menu submits to a secure connection, the form field itself may show on a non-secure page which would generate a warning. Quick Login not Available when Login-Only HTTPS Setting Enabled IPS Community in the Cloud Those using IPS CiC can get secure connections for a $15 setup fee plus $5 month on our 40, 65 and 100 user Cloud plans. You can either bring your own certificate or we can provide one for you. On the 200, 450 and 750 plans, SSL is completely free - again, either your own or we can provide one.

    I would speculate this is because not all admins are moderators. For an example if you hired a designer to work on your live site and gave them admin access to do their work for you, you'd probably not want them to have any moderator control on the front end...

    The way most use a "VPN" is more as a proxy server. It's protecting you in terms of anonymity, but it also essentially shows you're trying to be anonymous and you're not connecting via a "proper" ISP... in the world of e-commerce, that's a huge red flag, even if the billing location and physical location match as it's very common for a fraudster to use a proxy in a nearby location In short: it keeps you anonymous, but also tells us, via MaxMind, that you want to be anonymous. Hope that helps.

    I was digging through some old photos recently, and came across this: This was two house moves ago, in 2002. I had not long purchased the snow iMac. The green and white iMac was my first iMac, and I remember saving for months to get it. I loved that machine and I've owned iMacs ever since then, right up until a week ago when I replaced my 27" iMac for a MacBook Pro / 27" monitor set up. If you look closely, you can see IPB 1.something on the green/blue iMac. Surely you guys must have old photos of your desks and computer set ups? If you've got them, share them!

    This has nothing to do with a resource being properly supported. My last visit date, for example, is October 20, 2016 and I fully support all my resources every single day. In the other hand, there are people with this date updated daily and do not support their stuff as it should. What a user must do is read file reviews, read The entire support topic to see how the dev handles with bugs and suggestions. THIS is important. Update alast visit date, don't. And btw, I'm a single person.

    You do need to look at reviews for an app / plugin before you purchase, make sure it's something the author is maintaining... You need to do that with any App Store. With something that's a paid file, especially with renewals, there's a larger incentive for the developer to keep it up to date and add features as they are getting a return on their investment of time. Things that are free are typically the first to become broken and will eventually need to be disabled / uninstalled from your community. They become broken because the hobby developer moved on, or they simply don't want to invest more time into something they will not get an return from...

    I have a community of currently ~1,500,000 members, ~1,000,000 daily pageviews, and a 9gb database for the forums. I really want to upgrade, and I've tried twice now to upgrade my community; first to a midlife 4.0, and again to a midlife 4.1. They both ran like complete and utter crap. When not crashing the servers, they were ideally pushing 25% of the load times I got using 3.4. Even after optimizing them to the best of my knowledge. Using the same server environment that runs perfectly smooth with 3.4 with power to spare. It has been a complete and utter farce with 4.0+ to the point that I've been forced to apologize and revert the community back to the pre-"upgrade" backups both times after trying 4.0 and 4.1 for a full month of sheer stress. I've had to reverse engineer crap design and code both in hopes of making them work as expected. I had hoped 4.2 would finally get there with performance, but now I'm being shamed in the 3.4 admin panel that I'll stop getting security updates for the version that actually consistently works. Nothing irritates me more than using out of date in software and/or security... So I'm starting to look at alternatives at this point as I get flashbacks to my horrible experience with vB3... Or more likely just start replacing it all with something of my own...

    Absolutely. You must have a social media strategy and ensure your forum is as enticing as possible for casual visitors. Show as much as you can to guests, and ensure you have Facebook, at least, set up as a log in handler. The easier it is for casual visitors to add a reply, the better. Make sure you set up a Facebook page for your community and keep it updated. Share cool topics and news from your site to drive traffic back. You can't pretend Facebook doesn't exist any more. But you can leverage it to drive traffic to your site and keep your audience engaged while they are out and about.

    The largest complaint I get from members (and a constant source of my servers getting on RBL lists) is that IPS has no way to stop all emails for followed content. A user can adjust these settings : https://invisionpower.com/notifications/options/ This page is GREAT...it's crystal clear, and users can quickly understand what they need to do to set their preferences how they would like them. However, these settings only apply to new items they follow going forward from the time they change that setting. Where the problem comes in, is users don't always understand how to change their preferences that are already set on OLD items they've followed. For example...If you are following 30 topics, and 3 forums with a variety of settings for each item you've followed. The emails you receive had a variety of different links (depending on the type of email it is, instant topic, daily digest, etc). One of the common unsubscribe links that cause the most confusion are ones like "Adjust your digest preferences" which lands you here: https://invisionpower.com/followed/?filter=digest Once a user lands on that page...they then have to do several things to stop all emails for everything they follow: they must realize it's a per-item setting they need to adjust if they follow enough items to cause it to pagenate, they have to then realize they must use the multi-select on page one..apply a setting, then go to page 2,3,4, etc and repeat If they've made it this far without getting pissed off and just hitting the "spam" button on their email client, they must not also realize that not only were there pages to go through, but they must also go through every single content type sub-tab (downloads, categories, bugs, articles, forums, topics, galleries, etc etc etc). Depending on how many things a user has followed over the years, they could literally have dozens of clicks to go through and update the settings of everything they have ever followed and change all of them to "do not send me any notifications". The "managed followed content' page needs a short message at the top of the page that explains to users how the page works - and a big button to "unsubscribe from all" which just sets every single thing they follow, in every content item type to "no notification" all at once, without the user having to select each item/page/type one by one. Clicking the "unsubscribe all" button wouldn't remove the content from their followed list, it would just set every single thing they follow to the "no notification" option.

    Please accept our apologies, this has actually been included in 4.1.19. The icon will show in the ACP member edit page just as it did in 3.x. It's important to note that this icon doesn't and has never shown that the user registered using this method, only that the profiles are being synced. We will be adding how the member registered in a future release however.

    As far as I can tell, at the moment there is only one setting to determine whether a group can delete content and it is a global setting to control all content type. i think it would be preferable if this could be set by content type. For example I don't want users to be able to delete forum posts, but don't have any difficulty if they want to delete one of their gallery images or a calendar event that may have been cancelled. could we have a bit more control over which content types groups are allowed to delete please.
