    Blog categories...again

    I say "again" because I know this has been mentioned before. Can we possibly get Category functionality for blogs?

    I've seen a huge increase in completed profiles since the launch of that feature, however not so much an increase of actual new user participation. Whilst it's great to see more new users taking the time to complete their profiles, this yields little long-term benefit if they don't actually contribute. I'd like to see the ability to prompt contributions included as part of the 'complete your profile' feature. It could include such options as: Make a post Perhaps allow admins to configure a forum for this to go in, such as an introductions area Start a blog Upload an image Comment on something Purchase something Upload a file etc. Thanks

    Modernize the IPS apps for IPS 5

    As much as I would absolutely love IPS to switch to a better language, like Go, the big benefit of PHP is that every webhost supports PHP, but very few will support any compiled languages like Go. While many more technical users are running on a VPS, there are a lot of people still using shared or managed hosting, and I would be quite surprised if IPS dropped support for them any time soon. Perhaps if CiC became much more reasonably priced there could be an argument for it, but it would still cause a lot of complaints I expect. If they did switch language though, and go through the whole process of retraining their staff, I don't see any reason to stick with PHP for any part of it - if you're going to do a service-oriented architecture like that, you might as well do the front end using a framework like react or angular, and just do an API backend. Again, I would really love it if this did happen, but it seems pretty unlikely to me.

    Marketplace Refund Question

    If you're looking for a refund from a third-party developer, unfortunately you're almost certainly out of luck. I don't know of any developers who give refunds if their app doesn't happen to work on your site; it's just a risk you take when you invest in addons for your site. Invision also (understandably) doesn't take any responsibility for any apps purchased in the Marketplace in terms of compatibility with your existing suite. Importantly, the more third-party apps and plugins you have on your site, the higher the statistical risk that some are going to conflict with each other. And yes, unfortunately there are some developers here who don't understand the meaning of "support." Thankfully, there are glowing exceptions to that as well. 🙂

    Database Tickets / Support

    @Heosforo Sorry, I'm not a complete noob but for whatever reason, your templates saved as random numbers so I wasn't actually sure where the template was. For anyone who would like to still show categories for guests and trigger login on Create Ticket button feel free to use the code below. Database Tickets Category -> CategoryRow {{$RecordsClass = $category::$contentItemClass;}} {{$lastPost = $category->lastPost();}} <div class='ipsGrid_span3 ipsBox ipsPad_half ipsSpacer_top ipsSpacer_bottom ipsDataItem ipsDataItem_responsivePhoto ipsClearfix' data-categoryID="{$category->_id}"> <h4 class='ipsType_sectionTitle ipsType_sectionTitle ipsType_center'> <a href="{$category->url()}">{$category->_title}</a> </h4> <div class='ipsSpacer_top ipsClearfix'> <p class='ipsType_center ipsPad'>{$category->_description|raw}</p> </div> {{if $category->can('add')}} <a class="ipsButton ipsButton_medium ipsButton_important ipsButton_fullWidth" href="{$category->url()->setQueryString( array( 'do' => 'form', 'd' => \IPS\cms\Databases\Dispatcher::i()->databaseId ) )}">{lang="cms_add_new_record_button" sprintf="\IPS\cms\Databases::load( $category->database_id )->recordWord( 1 )"}</a> {{else}} <a class="ipsButton ipsButton_medium ipsButton_important ipsButton_fullWidth" href="/login" data-ipsmenu-closeonclick="false" data-ipsmenu="" id="elUserSignIn">{lang="cms_add_new_record_button" sprintf="\IPS\cms\Databases::load( $category->database_id )->recordWord( 1 )"}</a> {{endif}} </div>

    More In-depth thread prefixes

    Lack of prefixes in a definable per forum area is what is one of the major things keeping me from converting a site over from XF to IPS. I have a developers site set up for the XF one and I went from 11 topic nodes to 33 nodes. The added benefit of the prefixes in one node allows users to maybe find another topic they wish to discuss. The nice benefit of the way XF does it is a simple add-on (in the 1.5 line) allows you to sort by the prefix. I believe the 2.0.x line does that natively now.
