  1. IPS 4 Stability

    I'll not disagree with you guys it just seems that this release is particularly bad!
  2. IPS 4 Stability

    Understand what @Lindy has said, but with 4.1.12 look at the amount of quick patches / fixes that have been issued, a heck of a lot and that to me speaks of not enough testing prior to release.
  3. I'd rather not, no use for it here.
  4. Ditto here, no corruption.
  5. The issues I have are: Lack of pagination (slight annoyance) 'Load more activity' being displayed at the 'end' of the stream, when you hit it you get 'There's no more activity to display ', if at the end of a loop with less that the loop internal quantity to display surely it should display that immediately at the end of that data segment without the user having to click on the button again only to display the message? (feels unfinished) [This site] Charles posted a blog entry.... (major annoyance which seems to be being overlooked) Unread Content links take you to the first page of the thread instead of the last read or new comment of the thread. (major annoyance - which I know is under investigation / consideration ) You did ask.....
  6. A lot of us are in the same boat, I've lost a high percentage of my subscribers.
  7. Basic Points (Support)

    For me the features should include: Be able to rename the points, i.e. 'beer' Be able to buy points via PayPal, e.g one point = £3.00 Able to give points to other users
  8. That is very good new @Lindy thanks for the update.
  9. Subscription payments can be made but they will have to manually pay an invoice which is generated each month.
  10. No work around for new subscriptions yet (IPS have advised they are going to revisit this - Q1 next year?). In the interim the PayPal legacy gateway which IPS have made available allows existent Subscriptions to be processed. However if a user breaks or cancels that subscription you can't restart it. There are other options like Stripe for handling credit cards, but that means going for the expense of using SSL and persuading users that credit card payments can be trusted via the forum software. So far I've lost around 30% of my subscribers and no new take ups have been forthcoming. The users do not trust Stripe so that and SSL (which we can't afford) are not options for us.
  11. It does not support automatic renewing PayPal subscriptions at this time. I've been through this loop twice now with IPS and PayPal and it MAY work if you use a paid business class PayPal account. PayPal tell me that a 'Pro' account is needed to handle subscriptions, that is repeat payments. IPS are supposedly looking into supporting repeat PayPal processing in the future.
  12. Show us your IPB 4 sites!

    Here we go with mine: http://www.smartphonegurus.com/forums/index.html/ Just about happy with it now
  13. I thought you could use any SSL cert? Unless you are IPS hosted.
  14. That is what my investigations turned up. Others seem to have more luck with PayPal.
