@  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
@   The Old Man : (26 June 2015 - 01:53 PM) Sorry to hear of your frustration, have to admit it's been a nightmare experience for me too. IPS4 has become the Windows Vista of IPS products.
@  Sherri : (25 June 2015 - 04:54 PM) I'm right there hating it with you. I'm excited about what it CAN be, but it's not there yet. This is a total disaster, and IPS is evidently far too understaffed to handle the stressful workload that comes with all these issues. It wasn't ready for release yet, that's for sure. :(
@  Wotsit : (25 June 2015 - 02:38 PM) I'm beginning to hate 4.0 :(
@  Wotsit : (25 June 2015 - 02:32 PM) As you all know, we've been shut down for several days now trying to move IBSkin.com over to IBTheme.com and upgrade to IPB 4.0. After several attempts to get this accomplished, we have failed on each account and run into some pretty bad technical difficulties. For this reason, we have re-opened IBSkin.com and we have asked IPS to see if they can get us moved successfully. We'll keep everyone posted on the updates as we receive them, but for now, we will conduct business here on IBSkin as usual. IPS is really backed up right now and they are super busy so I don't expect them to be able to help us out as quickly as we would like, so we'll be patient and hope for the best. Meanwhile, I'm going to be working to get the new Red Pro 4.0 updated and then start pushing out new themes for IPB 4.0 Thank you all for your patience and understanding while we get this all sorted, and we are truly sorry for those that were inconvenienced by our closing this past week. Kindest Regards, Sherri & Wotsit IBSkin / IBTheme Management

Image import problems?

If you can not get your images to import, this means that your server will not allow you to import .xml files larger than 2mb.

If this happens, simply upload your "images-xmas-magik.xml.gz" file to your forum's admin root folder via FTP.

The Old Man

Here's a useful tip which I obtained from Jason at IPS in response to a support ticket a while back, when I was having problems with IP.Gallery running out of memory (displaying a blank screen) when resizing large uploaded images taken from member's digital cameras (big files!).

Increasing the amount of memory...
