  1. The software will function even without a license key entered, so it's pointless to steal a license key. If someone were to hack your account, I would be more worried about losing the account and everything associated with it. But barring that, as I said, it's pointless to use a stolen key because there would be nothing to gain by it. The software will function without a key and the only reason to enter a key is to gain the benefits of having an active license, such as the chat and the SMS, neither of which would work since the URL wouldn't match with the key being used. So as mentioned before, I wouldn't worry about it. If someone does steal your license key, then they've basically stolen something that is useless to them.
  2. In addition to what Ian said. If you would like to convert one or more of your legacy licenses to a Standard license, we will do that for you for free. When the license is converted, we would set an expiration on the license for when you would need to renew it. During that time, you would get the benefits of having a Standard license at no additional cost. Lifetime license converted to Standard, the license would expire a year after it was converted. Perpetual license converted to Standard, we would add 6 months to it's current expiration. Keep in mind that once converted, the licenses would reach a point of expiring and would need to be renewed, $25 for 6 months. So if you purchase a new Standard license and decide you like the benefits of it (Spam Monitoring Service, free 5 user chat, Visual Skin Editor, etc), then you can convert your other licenses to get the benefits with those as well.
  3. Try this link: Store If you're not seeing it listed in the Purchases tab in the Client Area, then please submit a ticket to billing.
  4. As mentioned, IPB doesn't integrate with PHPnuke on it's own. You would need to have someone design a script that would make this possible. You could try asking on the PHPnuke site for support for this, as someone else may have already done the same thing you are wanting to do. You mention about a new front end, is this just for the forums or for other parts of your site as well? Perhaps if we knew your goals, we could provide you with a better response. If you're looking to replace PHPnuke altogether, you can certainly do that with our IP.Content add-on app, although to be honest, as you mentioned you're not a web designer nor a coder, it's likely not for you. Again though, if we knew more about your plans, we may be better able to assist you.
  5. There's really not much to worry about. If someone steals your license key, it wouldn't do them any good even if your license is active, especially if you have your license key associated with your community's URL. They would not benefit from support or any other services from having the key. In essence, the key is useless to everyone except the owner.
  6. In addition to what AndyF said... If you purchase or sell a used license, you do run the risk of being scammed out of money. If you send someone money for it and they don't give you the details for the account, then you're out of the money you sent. If you accept money and send someone the account details only to later lose the funds because they used a stolen card or account, then again, you're out of the money. Even if nothing bad happens, we discourage such transactions. If you proceed with such a transaction and something bad happens, we will not be able to help you in the matter. It's also important to keep in mind that we don't transfer licenses from one account to another. If someone isn't offering their entire account for sale, but instead an individual license from it, then that won't even be possible. It's all or nothing. So that's another thing to be careful about.
  7. When you sign up here, your email address also becomes your account for making purchases and vice-versa. Sign into the client area (link at top of this page, on the far left) using the email address and password that you created for this community. After you've done that, click on this link and you can make your purchase.
  8. We offer a Cyber deal. When you buy IP.Board and then one or more of the add-on apps, you get a discount ranging from 5% to 25%, depending on how many different apps you purchase. Better hurry while the getting is good. ;)

  10. You would simply submit a ticket to billing and they will generate an invoice for the difference for the upgrade. Once that's paid and you reply back to the ticket, they'll update your plan. There are no service charges for upgrading your plan.
  11. With that many successful sites, you might consider writing a tutorial/guide for other members to use for being able to improve the success of their sites. You might also consider sharing a list of your sites so that others can see what you've accomplished.
  12. When you feel the need or want to upgrade your plan, simply submit a ticket to the billing department and they'll take care of it for you.
  13. The benefit of the demo system is that you can get a feel for the ACP and what options are available, as well as being able to test things out before deciding if you are going to make a purchase or not. It's not like software that you download where it gives you full options for X days and then you have to purchase a license to continue. The thing about the Starter 5 plan is that it doesn't provide you with the chat service. If that doesn't bother you, then it's a good place to start.
  14. The development/testing site can be publicly accessible, just it cannot turn into another active community. Sometimes you need to do this, for example when you're planning to perform an upgrade need help testing out settings or a new mod/app, you might invite some select members from the live site to help you out. I do recommend using .htaccess to password protect the development install, so that you can better control who can access it. Otherwise you might check on it one day and find that half your community is active on your development site. For passwords, I suggest getting it set up ahead of time. Have one 'master' ID/password that you would use of course. Then have one for your staff and then have about 12 random ID's and passwords that you can give out as needed. Then once a month, remove the one currently being used and give out the new one for your 'testers' to use. Helps to prevent unwanted people from sneaking in because of the ID/password being leaked.
  15. I believe you're talking about this post. It's the post I thought of when I saw the title of this topic. http://community.inv...ost__p__2122066
