    This is great. Now members can see files in subcategories on my site instead of them appearing empty. A definite improvement. Thanks.
  1. Same problem here. I was able to work around it for now by editing this file: /applications/portal/extensions/core/FrontNavigation/Portal.php changed line reading: class _Portal to class _Portal extends \IPS\core\FrontNavigation\FrontNavigationAbstract I assume it has to do with some menu issue in 4.1 like is shown in one of the patches to 4.1.7 that refers to this type of error. I'm not sure if this workaround causes any other problems, but this at least got me going on 4.1.7 and easier than restoring back to 4.1.6.1. If you haven't upgraded yet, I would hold off until it's fixed though.
  2. I've worked in the server IT departments of some very large companies before. There's no way we would jump on a major release like this until probably 6-12 months at the earliest. There would be a vocal set of internal customers who would want it immediately for whatever new features it has. But as the 'server guys' we have to support it. Once we put it out, and it breaks, we own it now. There are also a hundred and one unintended consequences that nobody foresaw - we have support tools, customers have third party apps they use, etc. I don't think it's unreasonable at all to expect at least a several month delay before anything like this should even be on the radar. At the end of the day, the software needs to be stable and reliable.
    Very nice. Good to see moods back.
    Thumbs up. Very cool. Working great.
    Working good. Nice to let members customize their profile a little bit more.
    Very nice layout for a more visual look rather than the traditional text based layout.
  3. Thanks for the suggestion. I tried it before but search is lost on archived topics. Generally it would be a good idea except for the functionality loss. The load times now are fine while not losing the functionality when archiving. It was just the size of an individual forum that was the problem. Hence, moving topics could be a decent solution for this and other problems, maintenance, or many other reasons why one might want to bulk move. I've worked around it for now doing my best with SQL scripting to move older topics out of the main forum each night while updating the various related counters. Most likely I'm missing something though. So it would be nice to have an official routine.
  4. This should really move up the priority list. I have a forum with nearly 4 million posts and 600k topics. In IPB3, the size of the forums didn't seem to matter. In IPB 4, the site chokes up and delays about 2-3 seconds every time someone would click on a forum with a large number of topics in it. By large, I mean several hundred thousand topics and millions of posts. Clicking on a smaller forum is no problem and happens fast. This is a 12 core server with 32 GB of RAM running at 3.2 GHz, MariaDB, etc. and various optimizations, CDN, etc. The only way I could even use IPB4 without reverting back to IPB 3 and reconsidering my alternatives, was to chop up the forums into smaller ones. The main forum being about 50k topics max. Most likely the way I do it is not the best through various SQL statements. But to keep the site moving with sub second load times, I push out topics over 90 days old into an annual forum. I know there's an archive option, but the last time I tried that I didn't like that it took those topics out of searches and member's history. I'd rather just have an option to move topics to another forum after X days without the archiving.
    Great job. Sometimes it's good to just get a second look at something before posting it.
    Great. Members love this design over the default forum look.
  5. With IPB 4.1.4 the sort order of portal topics does not seem to work if selecting to sort by topic start time. Rather, it sorts by default of last updated topic no matter what the setting. It worked correctly with IPB 4.1.3.2 . I had to change the sortBy line in portal.php from start_date to forums_topics.start_date and it then works as expected. Edit: Seems to be IPB bug with fix attached at following URL. After reversing my edit and applying the patch it works as expected again.
    One of the most popular plugins on our board for a long time. Glad to see it with 4.X.

    Very good. Seems to catch almost everything. Been using it almost a year.
