    Have you fixed the “no token found” error when posting on the blog? This bug has been there for quite a while.

    Upgrade went well, there’s a slight speed bump to so I’m looking forward to the next update (4.3 or something) – I do hope existing features would also be improved for convenience.

    Still love SE and will prefer it over the competition! :)

    Hello, have you fixed Chat Module and IM Chat Module? We had lot of issues with them, showing absolutely wrong and wierd informations (like showing everyone in comunity online when there is none, or getting chat messages minute after sending and so on).. Anyone else with the same problem?

    when are you going to ad proximity search in member search and make it ads only show to the location they are meant for… i hate that all my members in texas complane every day that they see ads for california business’s this is more important than most upgrades you have done over the last couple of years… people want to find people with in 30 or 40 miles from them they do not want to see the entire state and selling advertisement space is a real pain because business’s do not want ads from another state popping up before their ad in their state… these are must fix issues biggest complaints i get and i get them every day

    Right now your VPS has plenty of free memory, though load is fairly high. You’re averaging about 50% CPU utilization, so I could easily see that creating problems if your site got busy. index.php are both processes that are consistently using significant CPU.

    is your page completely unavailable when you’re having these problems, or is it slow/throwing errors?

    Well, the new changes are good, but still needs some improvements, more especially to add pages option as well as ability to change a tab name directly. I tried this on my site, but it gives me some bugs, so I bypass and create a new tab and named it after the desired tab.

    Yes, this is wasted 60$ because modules do NOT work!

    We wanted to use SE for a CBBC site for the bbc. However the awful chat faclities made us turn them down…..Three years later and they still haven’t made it better. Lacks all the moderator features that all chat modules have, Looks like a live chat for a support site.

    SE have there default user online/offline set at 20mins. Its crazy but true. you will have to get a code change to set the user online to 1min. It is the only way to change this setting. Took me weeks to get that answer from SE. good luck there paid support is very time consuming to say the lest.

    I totally agree with this post. People want to see ads that are in their area.

    When I download this I get a folder rather than the normal .tar file. Where do I drag the folder to?

    Why is this a zip file and not a tar file like all previous upgrades??

  28. Posted July 14, 2012 at 12:13 pm | Permalink

    I tried clicking on the videos to install but they come up “Private” and are inaccessible.

    Posted July 20, 2012 at 1:51 am | Permalink

    would seem that there is no point asking for help here with a file that should be a tar file….a ploy to get people to sign up for their $35 support? which is useless if your social engine site is modified in anyway what so ever. Come on SE team, why is it a zip file instead of your normal tar file update??
