  1. Likely your web host has those ports blocked. You'll need to ask them. If you're IPS hosted, this app doesn't work on their servers.
  2. Generally, polarizing topics such as politics bring out the worst in people. Thus creating an admin nightmare. Sure, you can make all the rules you want governing conduct in such topics... But you still have to admin / moderate those discussions and deal with the fallout when things to awry. If you have enough admins / moderators online / available, you can curb how quickly it gets out of hand. But if it's just you and one or two others that are admin / moderating, probably not a good idea. My $0.02.
  3. I can't speak for all devs, but they may not want to support older versions. If it doesn't work on the latest IPS version, upgrade. But you can't upgrade unless you have an active license. Simply put, expired licenses = communities that aren't upgrading = potential issues with 3rd party apps that are designed to work with the latest IPS version. Many devs, myself included, try to maintain backwards compatibility where possible, but it isn't guaranteed.
  4. It is the file submitters choice if the previous version is maintained. Therefore it is not guaranteed.
  5. It annoys me too, but their playground, their rules...
  6. I'm sure part of the idea here is to have two concurrent actions to delete something. Check-Delete. Web interfaces are different than a native app/client. There will be functional / usability differences.
  7. Google for it. There are a few github projects you can use that manage the interface with the google API. It's not too difficult to do, hooking into the login handler is the tricky part. I've been half working on Google Auth for a while now, just never put my head down and finished it. More power to you if you get to it first.
  8. It's a ways back on the to-do list. I'll look into shuffling it around.
  9. No, this only works on IP.Board 3.4.x. It has not yet been upgraded to IPS4. Per the note at the top of the file.
  10. This site used to be 'stock' look and feel to serve as a type of demo. That philosophy changed many months ago whereby IPS has stated this community now showcases some of the customization that can be done easily with their software. I can't find the post at the moment, but it's likely in this forum somewhere either posted by Charles or Lindy. Many of the aspects of this community are done with the Pages app. The News section, the Bug Tracker, Release Notes, and Guides are all done with Pages. In fact, within the Guides is a section that details how to build some of the IPS pages. The bug tracker has this in the sidebar, and I can confirm that it's a very basic usage of a Pages database. I've created one myself, for my own software, and it uses many of the same features and filters as the IPS Bug Tracker.
  11. Still a good ways from release. Here's a screenshot of some of the data that's been thrown on the page for a starting point. Still more data to come and then to make it purdy.
  12. ACP > Customization > Languages. Select 'translate' on your language and search for the English text you see on the page (minus the username) and it will find the string for you. I've done the hard part for you, it's status__update_placeholder_other I'm not sure about whether or not it's overwritten on upgrade.
  13. You can do this yourself by editing the language bit.
  14. This has pestered me too.
  15. @RevengeFNF Don't get me wrong, I use GA. I am simply explaining some of the issues I've run into that others will likely hit at some point. And I have a GA mod on my development roadmap for IPS4 if IPS doesn't do it first. If given the option of token vs SMS, personally, I would choose token every time. Like you've pointed out, it's 100% guarantee of code being available vs potential SMS delivery delay issues. Look at Steam, they've built their token into their own app rather than allowing GA or SMS service. Don't confuse my discussion with not liking GA and preferring SMS. I'm just pointing out the issues with GA that I, personally, have run into. I'd call myself technically apt, I have 2 Engineering degrees, but there are issues with any soft-token, including the ENTRUST soft-token I use at my day job.
