As usual, life's been busy as usual for me since my move down to Texas. New job, new house blah blah excuses whatever who cares. Anyway, I'm trying to set aside a couple days to just fix everything that's broken on this site. I'm shooting for this weekend, but please don't shoot me if I can't.

I am aware of the attachments issue. Is there anything else? Anything you guys want added? Give me a nice laundry list of stuff to do and order it by priority.

Things to note:
- I don't have access to the old stuff, Mike does. This means that any missing files are out of my reach.
- The site might be down at times if I need to replace something. Expect outages.
- I would love to upgrade to the latest IPB, but I need to find the files and I dont have access to our customer portal. I'll do my best on that end.
- Texas is much hotter than back home.

I contacted IPB's sales team to see how much it'd cost to upgrade. Hopefully it's not too expensive or anything. It seems like a standard license is $150 bucks. If that's all it takes to get us to the latest version of IPB and fix that damn attachments issue, I'll shell out the money and get us upgraded.

As well, I've started researching upgrading our MediaWiki. It would be a beautiful thing if I could integrate the two software's account systems, but I'm doubting that. Either way, both upgrades will give us much better anti-spam capabilities.

Anyway, I'll let ya'll (there's the Texas side of me) know what they say and what our options are. I really don't want to leave IPB since I know we're all used to it and for the most part it's been running great. Hopefully they come back with a reasonable response and we can get all these things sorted out.

Edit: They also seem to have IP.Downloads which is some plugin that can handle all our files for another $50 bucks. I hate to marry us to one main company, but from looking at the feature set it looks like it might be a good idea.

Check them out and let me know what you think.

IPB 2.3x: http://www.invisionpower.com/community/board/index.html
IP.Downloads: http://www.invisionpower.com/community/downloads/index.html

I dont think we need the Gallery or Blog plugins, but if someone can make a reasonable argument for them I'll consider it.

Edit #2: Check out all the features of IPB 2.3. I think it's def worth upgrading.

http://forums.invisionpower.com/index.php?showtopic=226814

Wait that's for 2.2.. 2.3 has even more stuff. I blame that on Monday morning..

Edit #3: Don't mean to keep editing, but I found some more beautiful news.

http://www.ipbwiki.com/Ipb_Wiki:Integratio..._with_MediaWiki

Integrates IPB and MediaWiki. That's pretty much exactly what I was looking for and now I dont have to write any code.
