  1. I second that. A command-line importer would certainly be of benefit, especially for big forum conversions. Running off command line is generally more "stable" and quicker, out from experience with other forum scripts. I have personally witnessed a five million post forum converting in about 10 to 11 hours, and that is far from perfect, and I believe improvements could be made here.
  2. Hehehehehe. Its been a while.

  3. Perhaps, move "Our Community" to where "Forums" is, so you can free up some valuable space? At the same time, moving the secondary navigation more left would make it look a bit odd if the first-level navigation is still at the same place. So I dont know.
  4. Hi, Your license is not version specific, that means if you reactivate (renew) the license, you will have access to the latest version of the IP. Suite, and any further releases as long as they are within your active license period.
  5. Hi, You don't need to wait for an IPS 4.x converter - you can convert from phpBB 2.x to IPS 3.x using the existing free converter tool for 3.x. It is well-tested and stable meaning your conversion should be issue-free. After the conversion, you simply upload the IPS 4.x files and upgrade your installation to 4.x. You can check what data can be converted by following this link: OR you could certainly wait for a 4.x converter. According to Rhett it is coming out "soon".

Suite. The conversion is mostly straightforward, involving installing the converter app, connecting to the source database, running the conversion through the converter UI and setting up redirections scripts to redirect users from the old phpBB links to the IPB links. If you wish to read about this process in more detail, please visit the documentation article located here: Additionaly, you can check what is converted by visiting Regarding licensing, one license is valid only for one live forum, meaning if you wish to convert three forums to IPB, you would need 3 licenses. You cannot use a single license for multiple forums. This is a standard practice for most paid forum solutions out there.
  7. In 4.0 and downwards Sphinx has been supported. However, as announced in the 4.1 preview blog entry (, Sphinx support is being dropped in 4.1 and IPS is evaluating other solutions.

  11. Keywords: individual topics.
  12. You can decide in the Admin CP.
  14. Seems like this is now implemented (the arrows).
  15. Hi, I believe if you use your self-hosted license on your cloud plan, you will have the source code editing limit lifted. Other restrictions, such as online users, space given, etc are intact.
