    Extremely useful and provided for free? Truly incredible. Great work.
  1. Ah, the old system let anyone opt-in. I have a large community, but shy of 150k members (we're more post heavy). I would appreciate still being able to run the queries manually.
  2. Previous upgraders did, but I've never seen the option when testing upgrades from v3 to v4.
  3. ​Are there any plans to add a CLI? Or at least the previous option for large communities that listed the queries to run?
  4. ​As @jhutch pointed out, it happens even when installed to the root of the domain. With a clean install of IPS4 to the root of the domain, if you set Pages as the default app, then forums are given the url x.com/forums/forum/xxx-name. I would also appreciate clarification on the questions I asked... ​This site has the forums set as the default app. That's the difference.
  5. This is related to which app you have set as the default. The issue doesn't appear on this community because forums is the default app, so the forum URLs are x.com/forum/xxx-name and x.com/topic/xxxxxx-name. If you set any other app as the default, then the forum URLs are prefixed by /forums/, and you end up with x.com/forums/forum/xx-name and x.com/forums/topic/xxxxxx-name. This is a change from v3. My community is set to have IPC as the homepage, but the forum urls remain x.com/forum/xx-name and x.com/topic/xxxxx-name. To me, this makes more sense than the redundant /forums/forum/ structure. v4 does have a nice interface to manually edit how your URLs appear, but it's also accompanied by a warning. So, if I change the URLs to /forum/xxx-name, the software is unable to 301 the /forums/forum/xxx-name URLs? Well, that would really devastate my community's indexing. Okay, I can write an nginx rewrite (or .htaccess if that's your flavor), but this is way above an average user's ability just to restore v3 behavior. If I upgrade my community, will the old /forum/xx-name URLs be properly forwarded to /forums/forum-xxx-name? I can't test the upgrade until the next beta (all the bugs I've encountered have been fixed), but based on my clean install /forum/xxx-name URLs get 303 forwarded to /forums/forum/xxx-name... which I had to look up (303- See Other) and seems less preferable to a 301. Off topic, but I just noticed: is there really no way to preview your post's output before posting it? Is that a gear icon to insert a quote?
  6. I can help. I have purchased products of yours from both the IPS Marketplace and your former site.
  7. Question: Will moderators be able to see tracked members from the ModCP even if the moderators' usergroup is not selected in "Can Track Users"?
  8. Thank you. It's amazing how responsive you are to requests.
  9. Great mod, wish the built-in logging could be this in depth. Does this mod show when tracked members edit a post?
  10. Thanks for the quick response. There's still an issue with the images. Uploading the election images into the folder for the master theme means they're not called from custom themes. The path /public/style_images/{theme}/elections/*.jpg) replaces {theme} with the current theme. I see two solutions. I could (and will) manually upload the images into each theme folder. However, since you're using the exact same images as stock IPB, might as well just call the default images at /public/style_images/{theme}/*.jpg. This solution also means that custom themes have their specialized images used, which looks better. I also edited my first post while you responded, I just had one other feature request. When electing to run for a position, candidates should be allowed to make a statement about their candidacy. A text box on the nomination form, displayed on the final ballot.
  11. Great app. I wrote a similar app for my community, but this is much more polished and feature-full. Two bug reports: 1) When adding a position to a ballot, if you don't select a joined date requirement it defaults to the beginning of Unix time (Jan 1, 1970). If this field is left blank, it should either default to off or maybe the beginning of the nomination process. 2) When viewing ballots/nomination screens, image files are called from /public/style_images/{theme}/elections/(accept.jpg and delete.jpg). I assume you're trying to use the default theme images, so need to leave off the last /elections/ I also have a few feature requests. 1) Candidate statements: when electing to run for a position, candidates should be allowed to make a statement about their candidacy. A text box on the nomination form, displayed on the final ballot. 2) Can you add a column in the "Manage Positions" view that displays the number of candidates? That way it's possible to get a quick view of whether there are enough candidates to have an election. 3) On my community we do per-forum moderator elections. Members run for one specific forum, and they must meet the minimum post requirements for that forum. Can you add a feature to link positions to specific forums, then calculate minimum posts for that forum only? It would also be great (although I imagine much more difficult) if after elections it could automatically remove the old moderators and add the new ones.
  12. What qualifies as a big board? How many posts? How many members? How much daily activity? If there's going to be a closed forum, there should at least be publicly known standards to qualify for admittance.
  13. I understand the desire to wait, but I think 5.4 is actually pretty stable, especially for a PHP release. The betas were smooth and 5.4.1 quashed most lingering bugs. Nope, sorry.
  14. Actually, Ioncube recently released loaders for 5.4. I just upgraded my community to 5.4 with Nexus (Ioncube encoded) and haven't had any problems yet.
