  1. I recently moved my forum from a vps over to IPS and I would highly recommend it IF you exceed usage you do not get "cut off" as with most host's, IPS will inform you and automatically move you up to the next hosting package to ensure you stay online. The difference in cost wise with the packages is not a lot so probably worth getting one slightly higher but support will keep you right on that. You will have full ftp access Support moved my site for me and were absolutely brilliant in doing so, cleaned up old un-needed files and tidied up a few problems for me. Personally I have no regrets and wish I had moved to IPS years ago, hope this helps
  2. Can only speak for myself but it sounds very fair to be offered $100 "cashback" instead of like with many companies it just becomes "end of life" and that's it. Personally I have a licenece which in honestly is now surplus since I recently made the move to IPS hosting, so why would I want or need to keep a seperate licence ? Good idea on IPS's part i'd say :)
  3. Over the years of having IPB I have not had a lot of contact with the support team, more through luck really than of me having any skills lol Well the host my forum was on were gradually getting more expensive and the server seemed to constantly be running worse and worse, I had previously thought about moving over to IPS hosting a couple of times but since I had been with the present host a long time I kept putting it off. Well this week I took the plunge and was dealt with by Rhett Buck I cannot praise him enough and nothing seemed to be too much trouble for him, though some of my scottish slang terms did not translate well to the states lol Truthfuly though it was a shining example how all companies should deal with customers and has left me very excited for our small forum based around scottish fly fishing to be a part of the IPS hosted family. Many thanks to all the team, John
  4. The release date is : 2014 other than that no-one knows and no specific date is EVER put on a release which involves a MASSIVE amount of work before hand, read the blogs and you will realise just how much work is going into it :)
  5. And very grateful we all are of the work you put in Pete :D
  6. IF you used some common sense you would create an admin account for someone who is going to help you out and once they have you can very easily disable or delete it ! I have done so many times and others have done so for me to access their admin to help them out, there are many people here who can be trusted 1000% and PeteT is most certainly one of them!
  7. Could it possibly be a browser issue rather than your forum ? IF I remember correctly a long time back I had some members with a similar issue and it turned out to be "Chrome" not displaying it may not be this but it is worth checking into :)
  8. Seriously ! If it is rushed too much because customers keep nagging it means cutting corners which I know IPB will not do. Personally I never upgrade to the new version until at least the x.1 comes out and the main glitches are sorted out and can never understand why people "dive in" and upgrade immediately and then moan about these glitches which come to light on live boards that are modified. Really folks, sit back and relax it will come when it is FULLY ready for the public :)
  9. Nice liitle hook, thank you Alex :)
  10. Simply awesome, many thanks for your work :P
  11. Thank you, this has been badly needed for a long time on IPB :)
  12. There used to be an app that did what you want but it was given up by the developer, I did this simply as a work around for my own site but threw it on here because others had been asking for "something" that would show the info.......Anyone can use it as a basis to improve upon if the want :)
  13. Still works on my own board using 3.4.5 so I don't see why it wouldn't If you read the post and looked at the pics, it says that it pulls the info in and contains it within an iframe to keep it all nice and neat :)
  14. Dumb Question time lol IF say I made my website by "invite only" and a non member wanted an invite is there a way for them to "request" say via a button to perhaps a form to complete ? Hope this makes sense, I am trying to find a way to stop a nuisance making 100's of accounts just to be a pain in the butt
  15. I can't imagine it will, to my knowledge IPB 4 is going to carry major changes which I imagine will hold big skin changes with it so you may want to ensure your designer is going to fully upgrade the skin for you as part of the deal or be prepared to do the edits yourself :) Hope that helps a little
