    The future of forums... let's talk!

    Couldn't agree more with your description of FB and your statement re: people needing something more fulfilling. But I think the challenge is reconceiving or re-presenting the medium to acommodate that desire for added depth. My fear is that, just as McDonalds restaurants deliberately style their sit-down areas so that you spend as little time as possible eating and then leave, most of the Internet has become subsumed into the quick-fix surface-play psychology which now defines so much of the quotidian (with the irony that, unlike McDs, they want people to stay as long as possible, especially on clickbait sites). Whether deliberate or not, Google enables this with their shift to privilege mobile pages in search results. Most people will simply take the word of the Google that be because, well, they want customers and money. But that won't do anything to stifle the trend.

    Although I have a VPS, and every price I've seen for a managed VPS is cheaper than an analogous cloud storage account. PS #OhNoNotAnotherForumsAreDeadThread 😊
  5. Most people are consumers not creators (of even forum posts). "Me too"/ "That's good/bad" comments are easy. For FB that's great. Those comments will all be lost in the timeline in a few days anyway. FB/Twitter/Instagram is all about "the now". Not legacy, or ongoing resource. Proper discussion, thought and composition require more effort than many want to give. Fair enough. It's a personal choice many online have made (and are obviously happy with). I've been running the same site for over 20 years. Sadly what seems to work is exclusivity, not inclusivity. Lots of free stuff for people to access, then additional regular content and facilities for direct supporters. That works - but you do need to be established enough and have enough content to make it viable. Simple discussion forums don't cut it any more I'm afraid. Commerce is a really useful part of the IP Suite.

    IPS Rules Application

    I got it working through a sort of work-around 🙂 (Using the topic being accepted/not accepted as the event trigger). I have another rule I'm working on....would it be possible with this app to notify members the day of/day before a Calendar Event about the event itself? I was looking at conditions for an "Event was created" trigger and the best thing I saw was that you could do a "compare dates" condition and compare the current time to some aspect about the event--whether it's creation date/update date/last post date. There's nothing I can find in any of the triggers or conditions about the event taking place/finishing itself....am I missing something or is this correct?

    Ok, I will do so :). The same is true for the others I posted a reply to. Kind regards, Wim

    I don’t test each and every plugin at every release. You can test yourself and post here if you have any issue.

    Thank you, Adriano, that would be great indeed. We can wait. With all the stuff we have to upgrade we will be busy for a bit anyway :). The only reason for asking is that we found that some add-ons, which were fine with 4.3.4, no longer work with 4.3.5. Kind regards, Wim

    Hi Adriano, Is 4.3.5 supported yet? Question from a long time user on 3.4.x who is preparing to upgrade to 4.3.5. Thank you very much in advance. Kind regards, Wim

    I don’t see why not. If want to wait for a test, I’ll let you know today later or tomorrow in the morning.

    Hi Adriano, Does this work with 4.3.5? Thank you in advance! Kind regards, Wim (your original user :))
  15. I was just hoping to get the url, wildcard would be a total bonus. I was just asking because I was curious. Honestly, I really can't think of a time when I'd need to make sure a specific url wasn't embedded. Maybe in the most extreme case. Anyway, thanks again for the addition! 👍
  16. For now, you've to enter full url, I'l consider wildcards in the next version.
  17. Thanks for the exclude urls! Can I enter specific urls like https://goo.gl/somethinghere or just the root url https://goo.gl?

    IPS Rules Application

    A quick FYI. 1.4.4 does not fix the prefix problem. I've tried various timings, immediately, after page load, 1 minute after etc. And in each case prefix is removed when a tag is added using a rule.

    I'll save money and time buying the plugin if sitting down and having beers is what it takes to pass time until it's a core feature. Thanks anyway.

    Hello, I just released a new version that fixed this.

    Reordering of Saved Actions

    Yes, and you are no required to buy any. You made the right thing: made a suggestion. Now just sit down, open a beer and wait. Btw, you can make your own resources and save some money: https://invisioncommunity.com/developers

    There's a paid plugin for everything it seems. Even for small features that should be core functions..
  26. Very soon, they said. That mean 1 or 2 months, I guess

    Discord Integration

    Giving this a 3star rating, only because it worked on my previous ipb version. With the new version, it is not working and therefore been a waste of renewal. It's too bad that the developer does not care about this application anymore. I would have continued to support him.
