    Remove Forums Title

    There are now THREE versions of this plugin!
    For IPS 4.2+
    Remove Forums Title from Index
    Removes the title "Forums" or your translated equivalent no matter if your forums are the default application or not. It is just a CSS change. If you like, just add this to your custom.css and skip the plugin:
    [data-pagemodule="forums"][data-pagecontroller="index"] .cForumHeader h1.ipsType_pageTitle { display: none; } If it is still showing something else might be conflicting in which case change the display: none; to display: none !important;
     
    For IPS 4.1.19.4 and lower:
    (SOS41) Remove 'Forums' from Forums Index 1.0.0 - Adriano Faria's Original Version
    This plugin will remove the title "Forums" from Forums index if the Forums application is the default app of your suite. Tested working on 4.1.14.1 using the default theme. This should still work going forward but consider it unsupported for the most part if it breaks. Give a yell though; I might give it a kick.
    Remove Forums Title - Fk's Version
    This plugin will remove the title "Forums" from the Forums index always; no matter if Forums is your default application or not. Unlike Adriano's version, this version has a single setting you need to toggle on/off to enable. Additionally, where Adriano's version consists of template hooks, this version is exclusively CSS changes.
    My version may work better for you depending upon any template changes you may or may not have made. If you use this version be sure to refresh your page once or twice to get the new CSS calls after enabling it .
    Lastly, the Adriano version will not remove any border a theme author may have added around the div that contains the title. My version *should* over-ride any border that is set.

    Topic Title links to First Unread Post

    Simple plugin that changes the behaviour of a forum topic title link so that it goes to the first unread post rather than the first post in the topic. At the moment this is a global change but it could be done on a per-user basis if there is sufficient interest.

    Who Viewed the Topic

    Who Viewed the Topic
    Track and display members that have viewed topics!
    Pop-up modal and widget options!
    ALERT: Use Version 1 for 4.19.4 and lower. Version 2 onward is only compatible with 4.2+


    This is the long-delayed enhanced update to Topic Viewed by Users. New stuff includes...
    Configurable number-per-page in the pop-up modal. Somewhat limited for now as this is going to get some upgrades in the near-term. Option to not display the pop-up modal button if you are using widgets instead. New widget display! Widget can display avatars, names, or group-formatted names! IPS style widgets (as formatted by your theme) or a "Spartan" option which is just a simple gray box. Avatars configurable to display at three standard IPS sizes: tiny, mini, and small. Configurable limit to the number of members that will display in the widgets. Viewers over the limit get summed up and appended as a count i.e. "and 29 more..." This is a standard IPS widget - stick it on the top, bottom or sidebar.


    Notes:
    This is a re-write of the original plugin. The database tables are different so that data will not be read or written to. Consider this an entirely separate plugin and you are starting from scratch. You should probably uninstall the other plugin as well.
    This is a vanilla cached widget. That means it respects the cache time you have set in the ACP under System - Settings - Advanced Configuration and will only change the display of who viewed based on that. Default is 5 minutes.
    On installation there will be no data for the widget to read until you get people viewing the topics from that point forward. Also, the initial addition of a widget to a page probably kicks off the cache timer on the widget. Give it a few minutes before the widgets begin to display data.
    When you move a widget around on the page, the data in the widget gets "lost". Once you save the widget position, just refresh the page afterwards and you'll be good to go again.
    All Astronauts is Flitterkill. I'm just moving my IPS stuff away from my active community accounts.
     
    Renewals:
    $5 to buy, $5 a year but really you can skip the renews in general. Punch the renew ticket after a year if there are IPS changes that require this to be updated, or I add new features, or you feel like buying me a beer.

    Spacious ACP

    Spacious ACP


    July 22nd, 2017: 4.2 version released.
    Originally I wanted an ACP theme that would display more options/information on a smaller sized laptop screen (i.e. 1600x900) and provide some customization. With 4.2 IPS has adopted many of the ideas of Spacious into the default ACP  (better tab spacing,  removed extraneous, useless spaces, etc.) so now the focus of Spacious is on customization and adding features to enhance and improve what you do on the admin side of things.
    Animation and hover effects for a smoother, more app-like feel. Header, primary, and secondary menu background colors fully changeable. Header, primary, and secondary menu font colors fully changeable. Change the name of the ACP to whatever you want. Un-sticky the ACP header to gain more screen-estate when scrolling. Latest IPS news and Admins Online widgets have been altered for better display. Optional modern-style dashboard widget format. New widgets! Other under-the-hood changes...  
    New Widgets!
    Spacious ACP comes with new dashboard widgets to fill in the gaps left by the rather lackluster IPS dashboard widgets. Includes:
    System Overview: Real-time server load, IPS installation size, IPS database size, memory available (or free), storage space available, options for Community in the Cloud customers, and more!
    Gallery Overview: Mostly a rework of the default Gallery widget but with better formatting and it now displays the four most popular images in the Gallery.
    Forum Statistics: The most glaring IPS omission. Sparkline trends for both topics created and responses made. Lots more - check it out! 
    Member Statistics: Major upgrade over the default IPS member statistics dashboard widget. Configurable. Google chart bits. Neat!
    System Errors: Lists last five (max) system errors so you can actually see what problems are occurring under the hood. Direct links to error reports and system error page.
    SimilarWeb: A website ranking/tracking service. Two SW default widgets for tracking visitor types and relative rankings, embedded in a single IPS dashboard widget. The rankings widget can have two additional websites added for tracking alongside your own site.
    Alexa: Get your Alexa ranking (for whatever that's worth...) right in your dashboard. Both global and national. Updates daily (though Alexa updates rankings once a week) and flags trending up or down from previous check.
    Database Overview: Just a few basic stats. More on this later.
    Most Active Topics Last 3 Days: As stated. Based on topic responses only. Maximum five listed. Useful for large boards where you are likely to overlook where the action is at any given time.
    These are all under active development. Refinement and new widgets can be expected.
     
    More!
    Login Page Customization: Add a background or just change the color. The login box is totally customizable as well including transparency and the option to add additional text.

     
    Dash Buttons: Add some more quick link buttons to the top of the dashboard - administrator logs, moderator logs, tasks, and a super-convenient clear caches button!

     
    And of course stuff, see the screenshots!
     
    Installation:
    Starting with 4.2 there is only an application to install.
    If you already have the Spacious ACP theme and Spacious Widgets application installed first delete the Spacious ACP theme. It is not compatible with 4.2. Now, you can either upgrade the Spacious Widgets application with this Spacious ACP 7 application (yes, just go ahead and upgrade, do not install as a new app) or you can delete the Spacious Widgets application and then install this new one.  If you upgrade the existing application you'll probably need to hit the support tool to clear the caches before everything starts working with theme changes and so on. This is expected (happened to me during testing)
    The move to just the single application is due to IPS soon to remove the ability for themes to be set for the ACP. 
    All the configuration settings to alter the ACP appearance, add/remove features, configure widgets that require configuring, and changing your ACP login page are all available in under Customization - Spacious ACP : Settings.
    To add the new widgets to your dashboard just click the add button on the dashboard, choose and then drag them where you want them to be. Be aware that both Forum and Member Statistics only support the large display widget area. All the others can be used in the large or small areas.
    Heads Up! Widgets with Google Charts in them will render weird when you first drag them onto the dashboard. Just refresh the page.

    Support:
    In the support topic. This initial release will have some quirks with responsive css on Phone view plus left-to-right language support is pretty much nil right now. Also language bits. I need to add more variables so you can at least translate some stuff in the widgets.
     
    Notes:

    Some of the new widgets give you a sampling of statistical information you probably want about your site and though you can request that I add some things of this nature to Spacious Widgets they will probably NOT be added as that will require storing substantial information in the database. That's well beyond the scope of an ACP theme and some add-on widgets. Better off in a separate application where it can be done right.
    In some server/hosting situations some data I try to read for the System Overview widget may not be accessible. Do not buy this if the Server Overview widget is the only thing you are interested in. No refunds will be approved due to some elements of that widget not working correctly on your site.
    Specifically, you will need allow read access to the /proc directory on Centos/Red Hat/Ubuntu systems and in some cases you may have an Apache setting called open_basedir preventing this. A simple file edit on your server will usually solve this. VestaCP users will need to edit some configuration templates to change this variable.
     
    Cost/Allowed Use:
    $10/$5 every six months. Basically $10 a year once you get going for a customizable ACP and a bunch of new dashboard widgets (with more on the way!). Feel free to skip a renew if you must but if you skip more than one renewal and try to renew more than a year later and I may just have you buy it outright again. Renewals keep us devs going! Licensed for your IPS site bound to your IPS account plus any/all dev boards (localhost or otherwise). Other sites should/need to get their own licensed copy of Spacious ACP.

    Ground Control

    Ground Control
    Set custom background images across almost your entire IPS Community!
    Default Background (used all areas not customized)
    Forum Categories
    Forum Forums (carries over into the topics within!)
    Calendars
    Pages Database Index Pages
    Pages Database Categories (carries over to the content items within!)
    Gallery Categories (carries over into albums and images within)
    Commerce Product Groups (carries over to products within)
    Downloads Categories (carries over to download items within)
    Blogs (each individual blog can have their own)
    Clubs Supported!
    Club home page and members roster can have their own (shared) custom background.
    Each node type added to a club (forum, gallery, files, calendar) can have their own backgrounds too!
     
    1) How are these backgrounds set in the theme/HTML?
    You have three options currently (available in Ground Control settings):
    On Body Element: Will over-ride the background set on the body element in your theme or custom css. If a Ground Control background (default or otherwise) is not present it will fall back to the body background already specified by your theme/custom css (if any).
    On HTML element: Will over-ride the background set on the HTML element in your theme or custom css. If a Ground Control background (default or otherwise) is not present it will fall back to the HTML background already specified by your theme/custom css (if any). If you have a body element background you will probably need to remove it otherwise it will display over top the html background.
    On a Special Background Element: This is a separate, new, HTML element placed underneath HTML > Body but before the header and remainder of the IPS HTML template code. This element is set to span the entire page with absolute positioning, given a z-index of -10, and a CSS 3D transition call that does nothing itself but will tell your browser to use your video card when rendering this element. Provided as an advanced option for users with more advanced thematic needs and also as a bullet-proof solution that will usually work no matter what your theme is doing.

     
    2) Do I have to change anything with my theme?
    That depends on your theme. If your theme has a background picker available to members there might be some conflict depending upon how it does its thing. If the picker is setting a cookie that is then read GC should work fine, and the special background element option will 99.9% of the time do the job no matter what if there is somehow a conflict. If the picker is using Javascript to rewrite the element after page load is complete then the special background element is probably your only option unless you can disable the picker. 
     
    3) I'd rather have this image used somewhere else...
    Ask. Trivial to add in other CSS locations. Just understand that like the HTML, Body, and Special Background locations this would be a global setting - you won't be able to set forums to have the backgrounds on the Body element and the Gallery to have the background on the Header or something like that.
     
    4) Where am I adding these backgrounds?
    Forum categories/forums: ACP Forum categories/forums add/edit form.
    Calendar: ACP Calendar add/edit form.
    Pages Database: ACP database add/edit form.
    Pages Database Categories: ACP database category add/edit form.
    Gallery Categories: ACP Gallery category add/edit form.
    Commerce Product Group: ACP Commerce product group add/edit form.
    Downloads Categories: ACP Downloads category add/edit form.
    Blogs: Front End - Manage Blog -> Manage Background.
    Clubs Index/Members: Front End - Manage Club -> Manage Background.
    Clubs Topic/Gallery/Blog/Download/Calendar nodes: Front End, after these nodes are created, Manage Club -> Edit this (Topic/Gallery?etc...).

     
    5) What about profile pages and the streams pages and... 
    Nope. Not right now. They will use whatever you have set as the GC default image (if any). 
     
    6) So what conditions do they display on?
    Application Index Pages and Misc Core Features (Profiles, Leaderboard, etc.): The GC default background will display if you have one set, falls back to whatever you have set in your theme/css settings otherwise.

    Application Nodes: These are things like Forum Categories, Forum Forums, Gallery Categories, Calendars, Downloads Categories, Commerce Product Groups, etc. Whatever you set on each of these individual nodes - every Forum category - every Forum Forum - every Commerce Product Group, and so on, can have a GC background of it's own.

    Content Items: Things like topics in a forum, images and albums (and album images) in a Gallery category, a product for purchase in a Commerce Product Group, etc. These will inherit the container background. That means if a Forum has a GC custom background, the topics within get that background too. An item for sale will have the page background from the Commerce Product Group it is in. And so on... If the container has no GC background applied, the content item will use the GC default background, and if that isn't there it falls back to whatever you have set in your theme/css.
     
    7) So what happens when I have a category and then categories inside that category?
    If the parent category has a GC background, and the categories inside it do not have a GC background, those children categories will fall back to the GC default (if set) or the theme/css background (if set). I might look into parent/child fallback for application nodes later on but the solution to this is stunningly simple: just add backgrounds to those children categories - that is what this mod is for after all!
     
    8) Anything quirky?
    Two exceptions, kind of. Pages and Clubs.
    Pages: Right now, a plain custom page of some sort is not supported. This is a page that just has whatever on it, no database attached to it. If you have a page that has a database attached to it then that database index page can have its own background. If that database has categories, those categories get their own backgrounds (and will not inherit the database background - they get their own or fallback) and items within a pages database category will inherit the category background. Non-database page support is something I'll have to look into later on. Keep in mind that all Pages pages can have custom css applied to them so this isn't really a problem for these custom non-database pages - just add what you need there.
    Clubs: Although it seems a little different, it really isn't all that much. Individual clubs themselves can have custom GC backgrounds set for the club index page and the member roster (same background). Then, since the club features such as topics, images, files, calendar, etc. are all just specially segregated versions of those IPS applications, the same Ground Control options apply to them as well. For each of those you can specify a custom GC background. Have 3 topics tabs and two files tabs? No problem! Every one can have their own GC background. Clubs is brand new and a little rough around the edges (also uses PHP Traits which isn't exactly hookable in IPS...) so I'm supporting Clubs with this but also treading really carefully. The only real quirk is I'm only allowing the add/edit of GC backgrounds AFTER a club node (topic, gallery, etc.) is created, not during.

    NOTES:
    1) For the initial release of Ground Control, backgrounds are set to display in cover mode, fixed, centered. 
    2) A good practice for all background images is trying to keep the file size down. 500kb or less is a good idea. Giant 1-3 MB files will only further slow down your user's browsing speed. Even when user browsers cache these images they are still large and need time to draw in.
    3) Adding GC background images to the Club or Club nodes (topics, images, etc.) is available after the club and/or club node is created. Once created, just edit/manage the club/club node and the GC background image option will display.
    4) For this initial release of GC the fall back for Club nodes if you do not set a background on them is your the GC default (if set), then theme/css default (if set), not the club default. Solve this by setting custom backgrounds on those nodes!
     
    NOTES FOR ADVANCED USERS:
    1) Images are stored with each individual node, not in a separate db, and so are available with the requisite $node->gcbgimage nomenclature (inspect database table structure for exact variable to call)
    2) Every node background image has its own File Extension.

    FUTURE:
    Possible efficiency improvements. 
    Manage the Ground Control background-image css.
    Possibly allow you to specify application top-level backgrounds. So the forum index page would have a background, the gallery index page would have its own, and so on.
    This is the initial release, it's just getting started, expect Ground Control to get more options as we go along. 
     
    Compatible: 4.2 - Not sure if this will work on 4.19 or lower given the Clubs stuff. Untested but I'll take a look in a day or two.
    License: One buy, one live site (dev/test sites are fine). 
    Support available for the time being in the IPS Marketplace topic. You are allowed to use this, after purchasing a license and downloading this from the IPS Marketplace, on one live site and any test/dev sites you have. Additional live sites require additional license purchases. Renewals (per purchase) entitle you to updated versions and ongoing support. All rights reserved.

    Kitchen Sink

    Kitchen Sink
    All the things you want changed or restored in one single plugin! Everything including as they say...
    Restores topic stats! Topic authors can always edit first posts! Customize the breadcrumb! Remove the Create menu! Better IPS update notifications! Change the lightbox! More!
    Why?
    There are many small things with the IPS suite that need to be customize-able or restored from the 3x series. I could write a bajillion single-use plugins or I can put some effort into it, pile them all into one plugin, and make a few bucks for the work (and she is wrapping up her second cancer in three years so yes, money good...)
     
    New in KS 13
    4.2 compatible. Do not use with 4.19.x or lower! New feature to adjust the suite-wide animation speeds. New less-noisy stream view option (applies to club view too). Toggle off Clubs pseudo-sidebar to reclaim a ton of space on a Club index page. Option to allow forum index categories to display the category description as well (this was added in KS 12) Option to remove the forum name from the topic author line in topics. Forum post controls now consistently formatted like the multi-quote button. Add the last post datetime to the section title on topic view has been removed for now. Follow button formatting has been removed in this version while this undergoes revision for 4.2.
      So this includes...?
    Global:
    Customize the breadcrumb! Remove the last element, swap out the home icon, etc. Control appearance of Mark Site Read and Unread Content (just words, just icons, or move them out of the breadcrumb to the user menu). Square up the appearance of the search entry area. Customize the light box! Full screen effect? White instead of black? Yes! Customize the error page. Change the FA icon, swap it out  for an image, more! Enable a compact star rating display! Userbar:
    Disable the Create menu. Replace the Create menu appearance with just a FontAwesome icon. I recommend fa-pencil. Remove all horizontal separators in the userbar. Change the member menu dropdown link. Leave it as the default avatar and member name, just member name, or just avatar. Calendar:
    When you scroll down, the view title (day, month, week, etc.) is pinned to the very top edge of the browser. Adds padding to make it look much better. Square up those calendar and event tags from those rounded monstrosities. Make the cover photo header area for events much bigger (larger event title font too). Forums and Topics:
    Restores the 3x series topic count statistic on forum index views. Yes, it's back! Can choose to display post count, topic count or both on forum index views. Add a locked icon badge in front of topic titles in topic view when a topic is locked (similar to pinned and featured posts). Change start new topic, moderator option, etc. links in topic view to appear as buttons instead of text links. Disable reply to topic button if you like (no one really uses it anymore...) Fully customize-able new posts separator in topic view. Set some basic info in custom.css and then use the full editor here to add content!  Change number of topics listed per page on forum view (same as one of my free plugins). Disable both the quote and multi-quote buttons in post view to force users to select specific text to quote instead of entire posts. First posts:
    Allow all topic authors to edit their first posts regardless of any edit time restrictions in the ACP. You can even configure this on a per-forum basis! Post view:
    A bunch of structural options. Hide the multi-quote button. Move the quote and/or edit buttons under the options menu. Change the options menu to a single gear icon. IPS Upgrades:
    For admins with permissions to view upgrade announcements this replaces the full page width upgrade announcement header with a pulsing download icon in the userbar. Clicking it displays a popup with the complete upgrade information.
    (The pulse is sped up for the gif. It's slower on normal upgrades; security upgrades will pulse faster but not this fast (and they pulse red!)
    I've probably forgotten some stuff. And there is more to come too!
     
    Questions
    Can I ask for something to be changed or included?
    Yes, absolutely! That's kind of the whole point of this. There are some basic rules though. If I think it is too involved, or I think that once I start it that it would be better off as it's own plugin I'll pass. Just ask in the support topic and we'll go from there. I decide in the end, you may or may not like my decisions...
    What if IPS changes something and...
    If they add something into the suite that I fixed/added here then it will probably be removed from Kitchen Sink. No need to duplicate functionality. If something in this plugin breaks due to a change in the IPS Suite I'll of course try to fix it if it is fixable. Or I might remove it until it can be fixed; I expect things to change over the years - you should too.
    Seems to be forums heavy...
    Yep. I can only target what I'm most familiar with. If you need something with the other applications speak up! The focus of this plugin is on the Core, Calendar, and Forums. I can fold in some stuff from the other apps if they are small things but otherwise I've got something else in the works for Gallery, Commerce, and Downloads (yes, another all in one...probably).
    Anything on the ACP side?
    No but... Spacious ACP! Get that! 
    This <feature> isn't working on my site!
    If you have custom.css that conflicts, or your custom theme has moved elements around, and so on, there is not a lot I can do. I can give you some help in the support topic but the further you (or theme authors) move away from the default IPS structure the harder it will be for plugins to work. Most of Kitchen Sink should work for everyone. I do not support modified themes but I'll lend a hand as I can time permitting. This plugin has been tested on a fresh 4.2 installation of the IPS suite with no other plugins loaded and no custom.css. 
    What's next for 14 and onward?
    Follow button reworking will eventually get done. A few other ideas cooking...
     
    Cost
    $15 to buy, $5 every six months. That's $13.00 and $4.50 to me after IPS fees. Regular renewals keep me perky enough to want to support this wonderful monster. Your renewals get you support, bug fixes, and new features too! You don't have to renew of course but if you lapse too long I might make you just buy it outright again.
     
    Terms
    One buy, one site. Feel free to use on your test site if you have one of course. If you lapse on renewals so long that I tell you to buy it again that does NOT mean you now have licenses to two separate copies. All rights reserved, etc...
     
    AFTER INSTALLATION
    Be sure to drag KS to the top of your list of plugins in the ACP. The order of the plugins in that list is the order in which they are built out into the IPS system and given that KS does so much stuff, to avoid conflicts with other plugins, drag it all the way to the top!
    Thank You!

    TDB Stop Shouting

    What does it do?
    This plug-in prevents your members from trying to steal attention, by entering a title in purely uppercasing with lots of punctuation. The Plug-in will try and strip the text to a more readable format that is constant with your board posting guidelines.
    Plug-in Settings:
    Case Types: There are 5 different types of casing that you can use. No Modification, Sentence Case, Upper Case, Lower Case and Title Case. Excessive Punctuation: This tries to reduce excessive punctuation from the title. This will turn ??????? to ? and !!!!!! to !. Exception Words: These are word of your choosing that will never have their casing changed, regardless of your plug-in settings. If the word is upper case, all of these words in the title will be forced Upper case for example. Remove Characters: These are characters that will be removed regardless of how many there are in the title text. Names that begin with O', Mc or Mac will be processed automatically from o'neill to O'Neill or mcneill to McNeill.
