@  Wotsit : (01 July 2015 - 05:45 AM) Unfortunately we can't do anything until Tier II have looked at it. Once it's working on 4.0.8.1 then I'll try upgrading to 4.0.9.1.
@  nylyon : (30 June 2015 - 08:48 PM) I'm running 4.0.9.1 without issue. Looking forward to IBTheme restart and hopefully some porting of the skins to themes!
@  Wotsit : (30 June 2015 - 02:32 PM) oh and 4.0.9.1 is out if anyone's interested :)
@  Wotsit : (30 June 2015 - 02:31 PM) Still waiting :(
@  doctorsexy : (29 June 2015 - 01:40 PM) ive joined the club....im having fun and games with it now
@  Wotsit : (29 June 2015 - 09:27 AM) Our ticket has been referred to Tier II so am only going to do the test site
@  doctorsexy : (29 June 2015 - 06:26 AM) 409 is out
@  doctorsexy : (29 June 2015 - 02:51 AM) Sounds good
@  Wotsit : (28 June 2015 - 04:04 PM) No, nor did I with starting from scratch - just updating I have problems with. Trouble is it's a different problem each time.
@  doctorsexy : (28 June 2015 - 01:51 PM) funny i havent had a problem with it , but i started from scratch
@  Wotsit : (28 June 2015 - 11:28 AM) Every upgrade I've done so far results in different things. Only one was partially my fault for not noticing that their .htaccess didn't have a preceding dot
@  legion : (28 June 2015 - 07:39 AM) Wotsit and Sherri if you need a hand with anything let me know
@  legion : (28 June 2015 - 07:38 AM) WOW glad I have not made that switch to 4.0 yet :(
@  Wotsit : (28 June 2015 - 02:15 AM) Here we go again - ticket submitted. It's telling me I'm using a 3rd party theme when it's theirs :(
@  Wotsit : (27 June 2015 - 05:44 AM) Database exported - anything from here on in won't appear on IBTheme
@  Wotsit : (27 June 2015 - 03:32 AM) Well the nav bar was caused by me missing a dot off of htaccess :( - OK off to try again though none of this recent stuff may come out
@  Wotsit : (27 June 2015 - 03:21 AM) @pete I feel your pain - the last week has been spent uploading the files/database - didn't work / delete start again etc until we finally admitted defeat.
@  Wotsit : (27 June 2015 - 03:19 AM) I could understand it if on the precheck something indicated there wasn't enough memory or something but it all comes up green then doesn't work = so frustrating
@   The Old Man : (27 June 2015 - 01:26 AM) It's kind of funny seeing IBSkin on default mode! Weirds me out, on so many levels!
@  pete : (26 June 2015 - 02:57 PM) Sherri and Wotsit the last few days i been doing lots upgrades from 3.4.x to 4.0.x because IPS staff can't find time i been so busy it killing my time on updating apps/hook etc

Help Topic: Viewing members profile information


To view a member's profile, you can click on their name from nearly anywhere in the board. If you'd like to view your own profile, you can click on your name in the Login bar underneath the board's header.

In the main profile view, there are two semi-static areas, then a tabbed area in the middle.

Personal Information
This area, to the left, contains a variety of the user's profile information. This includes the personal photo (if they have uploaded one), the user's rating, a variety of options (such as finding their posts), the user's personal statement, along with some more details about the individual, such as their age, gender, and location. Further down the left, you'll see their statistics and post count, along with their personal messenger information.

In the center of the profile are a series of tabs. Here, you can find their recent posts, a listing of their comments, and a listing of their friends (you can view the friend's profile information by clicking on their name). Also, if the board has the Invision Power Gallery or Blog components installed, you will see two additional tabs. The Gallery tab will show the last six uploaded images, while the Blog tab will show the last five blog entries.

To the far right, you'll be able to see who recently visited the person's profile, any recent comments left, and a listing of the users recent friends.

Adding Comments
You are able to leave comments about other users. When you bring up their profile, on the far right you will notice a section of recent comments. If you click on the "Add a Comment" button, you will then be able to leave a comment.

Moderating Comments
If a rude or otherwise offensive comment is left to you by another member, you can delete the comment in two ways.

First, you can click on the "Comments" tab, scroll to their comment, place a check in the box, then choose "Delete Selected Comments" from the dropdown list at the bottom. Secondly, you can click on the small "X" button next to the users comment in the Recent Comments area.

You can also approve and un-approve comments in a similar method. Unapproved comments will not be displayed, while approved comments are displayed to the public. Instead of choosing "Delete Selected Comments", choose Approve or Un-Approve selected comments.

Rating a User
The profile supports a user rating system. This will let other users rate down users that cause problems, or value the rating of good users. To edit the rating, bring up the member's profile, then click on the stars to choose the rating.

Editing Your Profile Settings
When viewing your own profile while logged in, you'll see an additional tab in the middle called "Settings". Choosing this tab, you'll see some more information to help edit the settings for your profile. Here, you can upload a personal photo (like you would any other attachment) or choose to remove it. If the remove box is checked, the photo will be removed when you click on Save Settings. Also, you edit your personal statement. This is very similar to your signature, but is tied directly into your profile rather than to your posts. A little bit further down, you can choose how you'd like to be notified of people adding you as a friend or leaving comments. You can choose not to be notified, or notify by email or Personal Message (PM). At the bottom, you can choose to approve comments before they're posted to your profile, and also choose to approve a user adding you as a friend.

On the left hand side of the profile screen, you can edit your personal information. You can set your gender, birth date, location, and also edit your Personal Messenger information.
