    [IPS Blog]IP.Board 3.4.9 Released
    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.

    [IPS Blog]PHP7 Compatibility
    There is a lot to be excited about with PHP7 - the performance gains are significant and we are eagerly awaiting mainstream adoption. With that said, IPS4 utilizes several third party libraries to provide functionality across the suite -- one of these libraries is HTMLPurifier. The developers of that library are not yet supporting PHP7 and are specifically recommending PHP5. While we have resolved any known IPS specific issues within the suite for the next release, we too must recommend that you remain with PHP 5.4, 5.5 or PHP 5.6 until which time third party library developers update their libraries with full PHP7 compatibility. We will provide an update as soon as full support for PHP7 is given. 
    Please note that IP.Board 3.x does not work at all on PHP7. There are no plans to release a PHP7 compatible update to IP.Board 3.x at this time.

    [IPS Blog]IP.Board 3.4.x and IP.Gallery 5.0.x Security Update
    We are releasing a patch for IP.Board 3.4.x and IP.Gallery 5.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_12_15_15.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 3.4.8 or IP.Gallery 5.0.5 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.

    [IPS Blog]IP.Board 3.4 End of Support
    The adoption rate of IPS4 has far surpassed our initial expectations. In response to this as well as client feedback, we are refocusing more internal resources on supporting and solidifying the IPS4 platform. As such, we are revising our product cycle dates for IP.Board (3.4.x) as follows: 
    March 1, 2016 - End of advanced technical support and development. Basic / limited technical support will continue. 
    June 1, 2016 - End of all technical support. Only security updates will be provided. 
    April 1, 2017 - Complete product End of Life (EOL)

    [IPS Blog]IPS Community Suite 4.1: Upgrade Prep
    Version 4.1 of IPS Community Suite is nearly ready for its supported release. We have fixed hundreds of issues leftover from the 4.0 versions, introduced dozens of new features, and made the system run much faster.
    Check out the release notes and preview blogs for more information.
    When you upgrade from version 4.0 to 4.1 there are a few things to know and we will touch on the big points here. Be sure to read the release notes for a complete list.
    Theme Changes
    There are quite a few theme changes in 4.1 but most will not destroy 4.0 themes completely. You may need to update some areas though. If you used the custom CSS feature or the easy mode theme editor then most of those settings will be preserved in the upgrade. Note that the globalTemplate did change, specifically to remove the "utilitiesMenu" template bit. The upgrade system will attempt to handle all this for you but if there are any issues you can either update your theme or revert any templates causing issues. The system will show you a warning if there are any problems.
    You can check out out theme difference tool to see all changes. Most 4.0 themes will work just fine on 4.1 and those that do not generally just require small updates. Be sure to do a test upgrade on a backup first to see how it goes.
    Menu Manager
    The new Menu Manager in IPS Community Suite 4.1 is a powerful new feature that gives you much more flexibility in your top level menu structure. When you upgrade, the system will make its best guess on how the menu should be shown. Of course you may not like this layout but you can easily change it in the AdminCP under the Menu Manager. Just drag and drop to whatever menu setup works best for you!
    Activity Streams
    Many older areas like View New Content, My Content, and more are now merged into the new Activity Streams feature. You can still replicate all that those old areas did and we actually ship with some default Streams to get you started. You can also, if you like, set an admin-default stream that shows in the upper right area automatically. Your members can override that with their own defaults if they find they like their own custom streams better.
     
    For example, every morning when I get online I first check a custom Stream I created that I named "Home" which I selected as my default. By checking the default icon, a link always shows in the upper right.

    Admins can also define a selection of available streams and set a global default. Here is an example that creates an unread content stream.

     
    There are tons of new features, fixes, and enhancements in 4.1. We hope you enjoy!

    [IPS Blog]IPS Community Suite 4.1 Update
    We have had IPS Community Suite 4.1 running on our own community site for several weeks now and are very happy with how it's taking shape. All the feedback has been very helpful and we have made many refinements to the new features and are looking forward to seeing what everyone does with them.
    The first two public betas have gone very well with no major bugs - just the normal sort of issues you expect to see in a large update. In fact, the betas have gone so well that we have actually fixed more bugs leftover from 4.0 than have been reported for 4.1!
    We originally planned on releasing 4.1 later this week but have decide to delay the release until the end of October so we have a couple more weeks to do more betas and further refine this release. Version 4.1 not only introduces many features but it also includes many low-level changes to enhance performance and be more robust with error handling. We have been very happy with the pace that we are implementing fixes and enhancements so we want to keep that up and think just a couple weeks of delay is well worth it for all.
    If you are interested in helping to test beta releases they are now available in the client area. Just keep in mind we do not provide support for betas and you cannot upgrade from beta to the final release. They should only be on test copies.
    Thank you for all the feedback! We are excited for 4.1 and know that a lot of you are waiting for it with great anticipation.

    [IPS Blog]IPS Community in the Cloud
    We are thrilled with the response to the latest generation of our community platform, IPS4 and hope you have been following the exciting progress and enhancements with IPS4.1.    I’d like to take this opportunity to highlight IPS’ Community in the Cloud service. IPS provides hosted/cloud service to thousands of communities and because we built the software and we limit our service exclusively to our software, we’re able to tailor and optimize our environment specifically for our products. This leads to an efficient, well supported, turnkey solution with a one-stop provider. There’s no waiting as you ask your host to review error logs, make potential configuration changes, repair database tables because a server was improperly shut down or the database ran out of room to expand or update outdated software to comply with the latest requirements. In the unlikely event you have an issue with your community and we don’t already know about it, we will have all of the tools and access required to take care of it with minimal, if any inconvenience to you.    If you’ve previously considered our CiC packages but have hesitated due to disk space constraints, we’re pleased to announce that we have made significant enhancements to our offerings, including doubling the storage capacity on most packages. Whether you’re an existing or prospective client, please take a few minutes to review our offerings on our website.   Here are a few of our more Frequently Asked Questions regarding our CiC service:    Do I have to pay for each application separately?  On all but our Standard 25 package, all IPS applications are included. Starting at $30/mo., you get nearly $500 worth of software wrapped up in a turnkey cloud-based solution.    What happens if I exceed my “online visitor” allotment?  Online visitors are determined based on the number of people simultaneously active on your community within a 15 minute window. This is not a hard limit, so if you are on, for example, the Super 65 package and you have 100 online visitors for an hour, there will be no change or overage. If, however, your average online visitor count exceeds the package amount for several days consistently within a billing cycle, you would be automatically upgraded to the next package. You can then downgrade after the next billing cycle if your activity levels have decreased.    Can I install modifications and themes?  Yes! You may install virtually all applications, plugins and themes from the IPS Marketplace.    I’m already an IPS self-hosted client, can I move to your CiC service? We’re asked this daily and the answer is, absolutely. In fact, we will move your entire community to our CiC service at no charge to you and will work to make the transition as smooth as possible for you and your users. We can then deactivate your self-hosted license so you’re no longer paying renewals and should you decide to make use of it in the future, it will be as simple as reactivating.    What happens if I want to leave the CiC service and self-host?  That doesn’t happen often, but your data is just that - yours. We do not charge you to provide a copy of your database and attachments upon request. You would need to purchase a self-hosted license to obtain the files that power the community in a self-hosted environment.    Can I use my own domain name?  Yes. Initially, you will need to choose an IPS provided subdomain (eg. my community.invisionzone.com) - after your community is activated, we can switch it to your own domain.     As always, please don’t hesitate to contact sales@invisionpower.com with any questions.    No matter how you choose to use IPS4, we appreciate your business!  [url={url}]Kompletten Blogeintrag lesen[/url]

    [IPS Blog]IPS Community Suite 4.1: Editor Update
    We have made a huge upgrade to our editor in IPS Community Suite 4.1 with a focus on speed an usability. I made a video overview of the new editor to point out some of the key changes. Before viewing, here are the release notes about the editor for your reference:
    Uses div-mode which is much faster and more reliable. Clicking into the editor is now pretty much instant. Auto-linking and member mentions to use new APIs for better reliability Quotes, code boxes, and spoilers can be dragged and moved and there is no more "red line" When cmd/ctrl right-clicking: options to remove or break-out of quotes, edit links and edit image properties Pasting asks if you want to convert to plain text Totally new code plugin with syntax highlighting as you type Option to make enter behave as a new line rather than with spacing Editor is responsive, and ability to have small editor show in areas with less space Member @mentions in posts can now be selected by tab key The major things to note are that the editor is much faster loading, particularly on mobile devices. It makes the mobile experience much more pleasant. Check out the video for some more information or register on our site here and post a topic in our test area. We are really happy with the editor upgrades and early feedback has been great. We hope you enjoy it!
     
    We are still on track to release 4.1 in early October. Expect beta release soon.

    [IPS] IP.Board 3.3.x, 3.4.x Security Update
    We are releasing patches for IP.Board 3.3.x and IP.Board 3.4.x to address two issues recently reported to us.
     
    It has been brought to our attention that certain PHP configurations allow for a potential SQL injection vulnerability. Although this exploit requires some knowledge of your configuration and for certain files to be web-readable, we felt it important to release an update.
     
    Additionally, it has been brought to our attention that it may be possible to send attachments via the email classes which would ordinarily be removed.

    To apply the patch
    Simply download the attached zip for your IP.Board version and upload the files to your forum server. You do not need to run any scripts or the upgrade system.
     
    IP.Board 3.3.x

    [IPS] Active Security Exploit
    IPS is investigating a possible security exploit reported to us a few hours ago.
     
    We are developing a fix for this issue now and anticipate its release tomorrow. Until the fix is released, clients are advised to delete the following file from their community:
    interface/ipsconnect/ipsconnect.phpThis will disable the IPS Connect service which is our system to allow for multiple sites to share one login. Most clients will not need this service but if you do use it then we still suggest you temporarily disable until a fix is released tomorrow.
     
    IPS Community in the Cloud clients: we have already disabled this feature for you so you are not impacted by this exploit.
