  1. Hi, Before I complain, I want to start off with a nice note. Since joining IPB my users have loved the website, commented on how nice it works compared to VB & I have loved your support. When ever I have a bug or problem you guys usually reply pretty fast, sometimes during the night! But here is where I am confused, angry & very, seriously sad. I love IPB. I think it is one of the most solid products in the market, I think it is also the most professional both company wise (how you guys release things when it's ready & not before) and also product wise, it's very professional.

  3. Please, please, please, please re-add the ability to export templates without a database. Lack of premade MP templates for the articles database, including feed block templates, is directly related to Pages requiring we export the entire database, which makes absolutely no sense for the database that is preinstalled, and doesn't actually work for it, and that's not even considering the point that block templates cannot be exported via any means. Those of us that can code cannot help those that cannot premade in this area with the way it is now. I cannot even do a custom locally with the way it

  4. In 3.4, additional IP.Content fields are shown as a table below the body field. In Pages though, they are shown as an inline list under the title. While both concepts have their use, the new default is problematic for two cases: Upgrades from 3.4, where a default layout did work, don’t work anymore.New fields which need a lot of space (videos, images, larger text fields) don’t work, because they are all squashed in a tiny inline list.I would propose to add a radio selection with the two choices “Display as List Element” or “Display as Block Element” for each field. The first option creates the

  5. And regarding the grid view for article listings: while that is not a default option, it only needs a small template change, since a responsive grid is already in the CSS. So to have a grid view for articles: 1. Add a custom database template in the Pages’ template manager. Make sure it’s of the type “Featured Records”. Also make sure you assign it to your article database. Also call it “Article Grid” (that name is later used in the code). 2. Open the “index” template of this newly created template group. Replace this part: {{if count($articles)}} {{foreach $articles as $id =>

  6. Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. Pre-made templates are something we'd like to do. We'd also like to release our own work we've done here for examples to use. You may find the improvements being made to Pages in a soon-ish release to be of more help to you. Finally, we have a number of tutorials done and on the way that are being reviewed internally. Hopefully all of these combined will maximize the benefit of the product to you. Thank you again.

  7. I agree that pre-made database templates should be a priority - The pages application is powerful for those with the correct knowledge. It is better than before but the lack of some default templates(minus two) makes it harder to use.

  8. After a lot of trial and error I managed to activate record-specific header elements in Pages based on Marcher’s lead. In the theme templates I added a new css file under CMS --> Front --> Custom. In the Pages record view template I then added: {{\IPS\Output::i()->cssFiles = array_merge(\IPS\Output::i()->cssFiles, \IPS\Theme::i()->css('custom/something.css', 'cms', 'front'));}}Now I can add CSS for just this database view or even for specific data from the individual record. Yeah!

  9. I just feel like every other IPB product works so freaking well, and they are all fairly easy to deal with both front & back end. Then you get to pages & it's a complete mess, it feels like having to code a whole website from scratch... Lets face it, you have to code the template you want, code how you want fields to display... You may as well code the whole thing.... Why need pages. If Pages was made more like Wordpress, Joomla etc... It would make IPB perfect. What annoys me more is that every question I ask in support about pages is replied with... This requires custom code so I can

  11. I agree in some respects to the comments above although we have still seen a reasonable contribution rate but not to where it was before. It is a change that members just really need to become familiar with. I think your comments fully support our view that it would be great to display GC categories as a category on the main board index and integrate better. It really needs the ability to see latest post inancollab on the board index. Currently they are set several layers deep within the suite. It works perfectly but @Kevin Carwile it would really be awesome for you to find a way to integrate

  13. You can add "Remove formatting" button through ACP>Customization>Editor>Toolbars. The icon is little bit different: "Source" button function is little bit messed up. When you click on it all code is displayed in one line and there is no way to scroll back and forth. I hope this will be fixed.

  16. Just wan't to thank you for sharing - because I have been down the same road. First with IP content in the 3.x series and now with Pages. I had to give up pages myselve and hired a programmer to help me (expensive) - because a portalpage and articlesection is something I have really needed for a long time now. I think that InvisionPower tend to forget that many Webmasters are not programmers. I'm not anyway. I would like to spend my time making content - not code stuff. I hope that the improvements promised by Lindy will help. With the history in mind I'm not so sure. The reason for saying t

  19. In my opinion this option should be enabled by default, it will help to prevent overuse of formatting by inexperienced users(big rainbow effect) who even don't know how to paste clean text. Also, in my experience pasting of plain text is more often need than pasting of formated text. What do you think guys? Should be this option enabled by default, or at least should forum admins have option to choose the default state?

I have been lazy the last few days and I didn't really check my notifications....However, I did today(all 42 lol) and I hit the full notification list(that takes me to the multiple notification list) and it showed me notifications I had already seen while others I had not read are bold still. I wonder is this theme specific. (This is on my own forum I am referring to). Good to hear there is some robustness coming <3

  25. Add ipsPad as additional class to whatever you want to show with a default padding. So for example <div class='ipsGrid_span6'> becomes <div class='ipsGrid_span6 ipsPad'>

  26. I had to turn off GC and move the few forums I had back to the main site - Why? I've had a few requests to restore Tapatalk and in their current iteration it ignores the GC (haven't decided yet - not personally fond of that app)it may have been the smaller forums I moved over but there was zero traction in the 3 weeks they were parked there (not one person "joined" them) no one created their own group.My biggest fear that if i moved my intended set of forums over there they would be come a data island.My main goal was to create a means for select few individuals to moderate, and manage ( creat

    Remove "save image as"

    Preventing anything on the web from being saved is virtually impossible, I'm afraid. Just by virtue of it appearing on the user's screen means it has already been downloaded - it doesn't take much skill to make another copy from there. Sorry about that!

  29. The record image is perfect for your “article teaser images” because: a) it’s already in the article templates and therefore easy to activate. b) it has thumbnail settings for faster loading of the list views. c) it’s used as sharer image for sites like Facebook.

  31. Regarding some of the requested options … The sort-bar. That only appears for typical listings, where sorting makes sense. If you switch the database to article mode, it disappears. So you already have the choice. Articles to show: Already an option of course. As well as “categories”, “show only featured articles”, “show pagination” and things like that. Things like ratings also disappear automatically if you turn them off. Thumbnail image: already an option. (“record image”)Styling these things (e.g. the borders and width of the record image) is by default mostly left to the theme and the tem

    Videobox

    Not sure if it's a bug, but if it's not then it's really weird. If search is enabled you'll only find videos when using the search function and it won't find anything else on the forum (like topics). I thought it would include videos in the default search result if there were a video that matched the search criteria, instead of only displaying results for videos.

  33. Thanks for the feedback, Danny. You are certainly right about the documentation. Pages has it’s own structure and logic of modules and without proper documentation it can be be a struggle to understand it and get good results. But I also disagree about some points. Wizards and Template: If you add a page, a database, a field, a menu, … – you will get wizards which guide you through the setup. Templates are now easier than ever, since you just open the page builder and drag & drop everything wherever you want to. That was impossible in 3.4, where the slightest layout change would require

  35. I just have to share this. I am hosting on IPS, working out of town, on the 4th of July weekend, and my debit card is compromise. So I have no choice but to cancel the card, which is what I use to pay my IPS hosting account, and my account is due on July 6th. I had forgotten about my account being due until this morning, July 5th. I set my daughter up as alternate contact with permissions to pay my account, in doing so I did not see a place to create an account for her, just enter and email address. I begin to get a little concerned that my site will go off line before I get the invoice pa

  42. For me the question is not simply rich text or plain text – it’s about WHAT is actually copied. A link within the text? Certainly okay! An IMG tag with an absolute URL? Probably! But what makes rich text pasting such a nightmare in general is all that text styling. If I copy from another website I don’t want or need THEIR font sizes and colors, let alone background colors and so on. I copy content, not styling. So for me the best option would be that the editor accepts rich text content, but strips out anything that is just styling.

  43. One shouldn't generalise. If I'm posting something I copied and pasted from a pdf which has the text in an usual color/font/size, I would want it without formatting. However, if I'm posting a link, I would expect it to retain the link (not just paste the text), or if I'm posting an except from Wikipedia, I would want it to retain links/bolding/etc within the excerpt. That is why we provide both options. Personally, I'd prefer to just let the OS handle pasting because that's its responsibility, but annoyingly both Windows and OS X don't make the ability to paste as plain text terribly well know
