Changes to IPS Marketplace

Recommended Posts

Today i been made aware that IPS Community site is making changes in the way files are uploaded to the Marketplace one main items is any purchase made here can't not be applied to Marketplace this will mean if buy any files here we can't not be marked as paid over there. Also the way files are uploaded has changed we can no longer upload read me files we must provide this in different form and i waiting see if this includes any PSD or font files see how much needs be changed.

With the above coming into force soon or later i will need see what going on with Sherri make her aware of all the changes that could effect her account there and then i will sort out what is need here once IPS have enforced the new rules.

Any question about the above feel free post back i here to help and here to provide any information i can when i have all

So its been confirmed IPS will not longer allow us zip up all files as one so the themes must be on its own .xml file and any PSD and extra item must be standalone so i will start slowly doing this, also i feel the time could be right start doing little moving around so from end the month the store will be turn offline, i will moving everyone to Invision Focus and redirect the domain to there.

The move might not go down well with Sherri but its time to get items sorted and i just take you on as full time customers as for items over IPS Marketplace i no idea what i going do there might have word with Lindy and see if have any issues that no aware off but as i am funding my own time, i feel only right clients get what should be getting eg full support + updates little better, also issues here database that causing problems so again feedback is welcome on how you feel about this.

If the files have all got to be uploaded separately to ips that's going to be a lot of work not only for the developer but for the customer downloading all the separate files. I always prefer a zip file to keep everything together. if I download anything from ips in the future I will have to create a folder so the files are kept together.

I will go with anything you decide to do with regards to future support and updates etc

Thanks for keeping us updated 😀

@bearback it does seem IPS looking at issue that people getting confused with files so example would be themes,plugins and application normal all come in zip file like you said makes easy to developer to upload. This is making people unsure what there doing with the file so guessing IPS get lots support tickets on how do install a theme or plugin when, its asking for .xml when i have .zip file etc but way i look at this issue i been doing this from 2005 and never any problems with files being zipped up, but become problem with IPS that guideline on how we pack the documents coming slowly into force.

As for the big plan i believe this correct way moving everyone to one site and this database is big but also has lots inactive people plus issues that making harder to fix without breaking the site, the plan was move username/emails and any purchase over to Invision Focus but any address and payment options would NOT be moved and new password would be sent via email.

I can see that there could be some confusion with some people new to IPB forums due to theme and plugin files being XML and applications TAR files,  I suppose it simplifies things by downloading and then uploading/installing through your admin cp without having to unzip files. 

Pete you have been around IPB for as long as I have, I started back in 2005 also.  seen many changes over the years. How time flies

Yes lots changes have been made remember 2.0.0 where first started out as just forum and later on 2.3.6 I started as coder after doing many manual hook installs now look we can click and we installed a plugin to application.

Yep, I remember these days, I started with 2.3.6 I believe. A lot more work then but somehow more straight forward in my humble opinion.

Pete, thanks so much for continueing to take care of this site, Sherri shoud be very thankful to have you!
