  2. Almost every time I try to click these arrows, instead of switching to the next/previous image, a new tab opens with the current image. This is really annoying, especially on mobile.

  4. I am thoroughly disappointed and totally disgusted in the actions of IPS 😝. They could have been so much more clever in their company response back to @ibaker. I want to immediately lodge a Y2K20 formal complaint. Some better responses, in no particular order: 1. The ethics and morals are currently in the Condensed view, not the Expanded view kkthx nobbq. 2. IPS follows the Mayan calendar. End of the world will happen in 2036. Or maybe 2012. Give them a break, they were using stone tablets and sun rays. 3. 5c AUD is a few cents shy of a license renewal and certainly not enough for righteous self-indignation. We're still working off our champagne hangover. 4. The only thing self-destructing is family time of IPS devs, who had to push out a bug on New Year's day. 5. Yesterday was 01/01/2020, not 01/01/2020 as the Europeans put it. (Shakes my fist). If only the Mayans had sacrificed a few more non-renewing clients, they could have built us a more accurate calendar for the rest of us. Happy New Years to everyone (but only to the renewing clients). Non-renewing clients won't find this unread messages in their Activity Streams, suckers! 😀

  5. Here is an example that I’m talking about. Right now, I’m posting this reply from my phone. this paragraph did not auto capitalize. I had to swipe up on my iPhone about 8x to reach the bottom of the page to click the reply button. even though I read the entire thread except your last post, Sonya I was taken to the very top of the page, which caused uncesessary scrolling. as I’m typing, I have to scroll down more to click the post reply button. some easy improvements: take you to last reply. It is hit or miss. Add a feature similar to how flarum has it, where you can drag a bar to scroll through posts in real time, much faster than swiping 8 plus times for every 2 posts. None of this changes the functionality of the software, just the theme being more “modern” for mobile use and just more intuitive. Didn’t gain any features, didn’t lose any features. But there is 2 to 4 ideas or fixes to make the responsiveness feel better and more intuitive to use. not the best of examples, since I don’t like to type on mobile either, but still.... there you go

  6. We have a forum with 2-3,000 people online during the afternoons. We are 55% mobile, 43% desktop, 2% tablet. Invision is mostly desktop here IMO because we are all developers and do content creation from a desk/laptop. Content ingestion on the other hand is mostly mobile. Which is where the pageviews and monetization are from ads. I'm against mobile apps that do not monetize as good or better than a responsive design that caters to mobile and desktop. We HEAVILY leverage Google DFP w/ prebid and a large stack of media companies. Mobile app usage may be good for view-ability but if it doesn't monetize as well -- then why would people ultimately convert...

    Linked Accounts allows your members to link one or more accounts then quickly switch between them. You have a full range of options about which usergroups can use the Linked Accounts system and which usergroups cannot be linked to. The POST AS feature allows the user with linked accounts to create/reply to a topic using a Linked Account. Each action is logged so you can keep a track of what linked account users do. The Linked Accounts system could be useful for fan fiction forums, roleplaying forums, or just those of you with multiple accounts (e.g, John Doe, Administrator, Forum News). Notes: Linked Accounts is integrated to Login system of IPS4, so to control the number of failed logins, Reset failed login count (minutes) on ACP -> Login Handlers -> Login Settings. This version contains an upgrader, so you can keep on using accounts created on this app for IP.Board 3.4.

  10. Version 6.0.1

    3,540 downloads

    Show a legend of your groups in the Who's Online and Recently Browsing widgets, sorted in the order you specify and linked to the search system. Handy so that people know what those group prefixes and suffixes mean. You choose which groups appear in the legend, and the order they will appear in, with the plugin settings in the ACP. Group links will carry any group formatting (colors, etc.) you may have set. Clicking the entries in the legend takes users to a list of all members with that group designation. Version 6 is for Invision Community 4.5 and above. Tweaks the &q appendage slightly - this is tested but environments vary, give a yell if there are problems. Version 5 is for IPS 4.4.5 and above. Untested on earlier versions. Version 5 addresses changes within the IPS search subsystem that now REQUIRES a query parameter to be passed through. GNI urls now append a "&q= " - and yes, the space after equals sign is intentional and necessary. If you edit the plugin template files, do keep this in mind.

  11. After upgrading my local test / dev installation (I hadn't touched it in over a year), I ran into some errors that were solved only by updating the dev files. During the upgrade process, there is a screen that asks to disable IN_DEV mode. It may be worthwhile to add a note in the footer to remind users to upgrade the dev files as well once the upgrade is complete! (Or any other notification elsewhere, for that matter)

  12. There really wasn't any conspiracy here. The file that had 2020 hardcoded into it was last touched in 2017 so it was largely forgotten about until stuff stopped working, and then we released a patch to sort it.

  13. It should only throw a E_DEPRECATED error now, which can be suppressed in php.ini. Based on the path in your error stack I'm going to assume you have access to that. error_reporting = E_COMPILE_ERROR|E_RECOVERABLE_ERROR|E_ERROR|E_CORE_ERROR PHP will only die on errors after you change error_reporting to this. The other option is to go back to PHP 7.3.

    This is by far the most important plugin on the marketplace for me, and its existence is the reason why I purchased an Invision Community license. I was searching for a new forum software for my community, and due to the specific nature of that community we really -- really -- needed to utilize a Linked Accounts / Post As plugin. For me, it was basically make or break. Finding this, along with the support that the creator has provided with keeping it working after upgrades and fixing bugs drove it home. Honestly? If the author asked for it, I would even pay a renewal every 6 months to support the plugin creator. Thank you for this!

  18. Coming from the software industry, if this is the worst of their bugs (per Lindy's scope of it), IPS is well ahead of the game! 🙂 Good due diligence in looking through the code to see if the scope of the bug didn't go beyond just what we see today, that's a sign of a thorough code review before pushing out the fix. 👍

  19. Again, vanilla is not the forum solution I am talking about. I'm talking about IPS out of the box, with no modifications/themes etc. You have to understand that Discourse/Flarum are mobile first approaches, but Flarum is not even a released software and IPS has been around for how long? At least 15 years, right? All I'm trying to tell you is, IPS needs to put more emphasis at making Mobile more of a game player when most of the entire WEB is mobile instead of focusing specifically for desktop use and supporting mobile, but not making an emphasis. The end goal is to provide the feature set IPS provides, but also making it much more intuitive to use on mobile. You're in the minority if you think IPS works "perfectly fine" on mobile. There MANY improvements to be had, I can tell you that. If you can't agree with that, then that's fine. I have nothing more to add.

  20. I should think that the existing experience will influence the desktop/mobile split. For example I prefer to use Discourse on mobile because the desktop experience is so bland. So perhaps, immaterial of the current metrics, if the IPS mobile experience improves, so will mobile usage.

    Push for Mobile first

    Absolutely. This site, notably visited by individuals developing communities, will be disproportionately skewed toward the desktop side. The subject matter and audience will be large factors into that split. Our community is at 85-90% mobile.

  23. Personally, I think this comes down to more than just the issue itself. It shows that there is a date that is hard stored in the IPS product. Now this is all well and good for those that have active licenses and thus the support that comes with it (like myself) but what about those who do not have active licenses? Perhaps they have refrained from renewing their licenses till a major update or perhaps they are just happy with what they already have as a site solution? However, their solution now has an end date in the effective use of some of its functionality which was not disclosed to them at the time of install. It is stated that they are allowed to use the solution without an active license but they are not advised that part(s) of the solution will self destruct at set dates. Did we not learn anything from Y2K? So now we come down to the ethics and morals of IPS management and staff? If they knew they had hard stored dates in their solution and did nothing to rectify this as it will force users to renew their licenses thus financial greed then we have a company that is extremely unethical providing us with a solution. However, this can not be proven from the outside looking in so a benefit of doubt must be given but doubt all the same. Now where morals come into and whether the company is morally fit I think will come down to how they address this hard stored date in their solution with all those that are still using IPS without a current active license. If IPS was to advise a solution to this issue with all previous license holders then it would be considered that IPS is morally fit and sound, if they don't then not only would they be seen as an immoral company but more strength is given to the doubt of whether they are an ethical company. You could in theory set up a server and install a version of IPS and leave it working as it was at the time of install in the same manner that it was intended to work at that time for years, that is what IPS provides for in its licensing agreement whether you have a current license or not, and as stipulated many times "You can continue to use IPS without a current license". Hard stored dates in a solution causing it to diminish in its capability and functionality is not acceptable and this type of 20thy century coding should not be tolerated in this 21st century unless it is clearly stated at the time of acquisition (i.e. 60 day trial etc). My 5c worth (that's 5c AUD inclusive of gst)

  26. We could have even more privacy if we would have categories for clubs. E. g. by setting permission to category of who can view it and clubs inside the category.

    Excellent addition to Videobox. Developer is one of the best IPS developers. He responds to requests quickly and is always a joy to have discussions with. I'd rate both the developer and the app 10 stars if I could.
