  1. A lot of the page speed insights require server-side configuration changes and aren't controllable at the software level, however having said that, I'm actually in the process of reviewing page speed reports for an upcoming release incidentally to see where we can make improvements.
  2. My post that you quoted is almost 4 years old and is no longer relevant really. With the latest version I would probably create a block (which could be embedded externally) that shows the forum search bar template.
  3. When the IPS Community Suite creates new files and folders, by default it uses the following permissions or "chmod" mask: Folders that the software will write to: 0777 Folders that the software will not write to: 0755 Files that the software may overwrite: 0666 Files that the software will not overwrite: 0644 While these permissions work in most environments, you may find that the permissions are not appropriate in your particular hosting environment. You have the ability to override these options if necessary. Warning Only your webhost can advise you as to what the most appropriate permissions are in your hosting environment. If you believe file and folder permissions are not being set appropriately, please contact your host to inquire as to the best values to use in your hosting environment. To override the default permission levels used, you must create (or modify) the constants.php file in your Community Suite root directory, and then add the following lines, adjusting the masks accordingly. /* Folders that will be written to later */ define( 'IPS_FOLDER_PERMISSION', 0777 ); /* Folders that will be created and not written to later */ define( 'FOLDER_PERMISSION_NO_WRITE', 0755 ); /* Files that will be written, and then later deleted or overwritten */ define( 'IPS_FILE_PERMISSION', 0666 ); /* Files that will be written once, and would not later be updated or deleted */ define( 'FILE_PERMISSION_NO_WRITE', 0644 ); Be advised that the values defined are in octal notation and the leading 0 is required. Additionally, these should be defined as you see above without enclosing the values in quotes.
  4. Hi, any way to make the PGN Chess BBCode v1.1.0 plugin work for Invision Power Board v4.x.x.x? It would really be useful for my forum.

  5. We are releasing a patch for IP.Board 3.4.x and IP.Nexus 1.5.x to address two potential security issues brought to our attention. It has been brought to our attention that an open redirect exists within IP.Nexus which might allow a user to redirect other users to a remote site of their choosing through IP.Nexus. Additionally, an issue has been brought to our attention where-by sensitive user data may be exposed in certain circumstances. To apply the patch Simply download the attached zip and upload the files to your server. This single zip file includes the patch files for both IP.Board as well as IP.Nexus. patch-34x-05252016.zip If you are an IPS Community in the Cloud client running IP.Board 3.4 or above, no further action is necessary as we have already automatically patched your account. If you are using a version older than IP.Board 3.4, you should contact support to upgrade. If you install or upgrade to IP.Board 3.4.9 after the date and time of this post, no further action is necessary as we have already updated the main download zips.
  6. There are no settings specific to adsense crawlers in 4.x.
  7. do you know if there is any login bridges for moodle? 

  8. Good morning.

    Maybe you can answer for this question: https://community.invisionpower.com/topic/427313-how-can-i-run-plugin-db-updates/#comment-2622710

    I can find info on this forum how I can debug updates(installation) of the plugins.

    Thanks. 

  9. Actually, once you "create" the plugin in the ACP, you can turn developer mode off and continue modifying the plugin PHP files and that takes effect without building or toggling developer mode or anything like that. The only caveat is that things like importing templates, language strings and javascript does require you to turn IN_DEV on and then "build" the plugin again and reimport it (just click to update the existing plugin). Generally speaking, it is expected you will create the plugin in a development environment with IN_DEV enabled, and then once you are finished you will export it and import it into the live site.
  10. We are releasing a patch for IP.Board 3.4.x to address a potential cross-site scripting (XSS) issue. It has been brought to our attention that specifically crafted posted content followed by specific user actions can cause a scenario where untrusted javascript can execute. A patch is being released to address this potential issue. This download also includes a patch for an email issue previously reported to us. To apply the patch Simply download the attached zip and upload the files to your forum server. This single zip file includes the patch files for both IP.Board as well as IP.Gallery. patch_2016_1_21.zip If you are an IPS Community in the Cloud client running IP.Board 3.4 or above, no further action is necessary as we have already automatically patched your account. If you are using a version older than IP.Board 3.4, you should contact support to upgrade. If you install or upgrade to IP.Board 3.4.9 after the date and time of this post, no further action is necessary as we have already updated the main download zips. We would like to thank @newbie LAC for responsibly disclosing this issue to us.
  11. Hello, As Charlie mentioned, our software downloads require logging in to the client area first, and subsequently are not publicly available. We do not distribute open source software, after all. Subsequently, yes you cannot distribute our software (this is expressly forbidden by our license agreement). Your best bet would be to get the client to upload the zip to their server and then let your automation tools take over from there.
  12. IP.Board 3.4.9 is now available in the client area This is a maintenance release to consolidate security updates released since 3.4.8, release additional security updates, and fix some minor bugs impacting many clients. We recommend you upgrade to ensure you have all security updates in place. You can download in the client area and upgrade as normal. We would like to thank newbie LAC for responsibly reporting a potential CSRF (cross-site request forgery) issue related to warnings resolved with the release of 3.4.9. Support Notes IPS will no longer provide upgrade services for self-hosted licenses on the 3.x series. You can do the upgrade yourself (it's very easy) but our support will only do upgrades for you to IPS Community Suite 4. If you are a IPS Cloud client we will still do the upgrades for you. IP.Board 3.4.x will reach "End of Support" status soon and we strongly encourage all clients to upgrade to the 4.x Community Suite.

We would like to thank @newbie LAC for responsibly disclosing this issue to us.
  14. Fixes a security issue when importing statuses from Facebook, Twitter or Google Plus. Introduces support for PayPal Billing Agreements in Commerce. Introduces new REST API for developers. Changes the behaviour of media embedding in the editor so links that can be embedded no longer need to be on their own line. General bug fixes and improvements.
  15. I don't hate the idea but I also haven't researched it yet. It's something we can probably look into, but won't likely be for the next release.
