  1. Hello, I was asked to post this in the feedback section in response to my support ticket... Please could you update the Redis configuration settings in Advanced Configuration, to include a USERNAME field for compatibility with the latest stable release of Redis (currently v6.2.5). https://redis.io/download IPS needs to be able to pass the username as part of the configuration, whereas previous it was just an optional password (due to changes that came about with the improved security and ACL feature). https://redis.io/topics/acl Many thanks.

  2. This is what scrolling topics with images in IPB looks like: (Tested with 1gbit/s internet connection <10ms latency) Why is this bad? Text + Images + Scrolling = Forum And this affects 3/3 of your product. (quickmath 😛) What i'm trying to say is that, new features are cool, we love them. But don't forget your roots, they need some love too. Reason for the scrolling/loading issues: IPB preloads the spacer.png file instead of the actual image, then it goes for the image itself. This blocks all content from being rendered, because that's how browsers handle it, which results in a truly awful scrolling experience. It's normal for community members to sometimes come up with a great piece of topic or post, which consists of many images to make it look nice and clean. So it's not uncommon, i see this problem on my board all the time. Todays browsers all feature native lazy loading. Spacers' death shall be imminent.

  3. Getting school flashbacks where you have to wait to move on because the stupid kids still don't get 1 + 1. Fallback like @13. mentioned please. Your product's main feature should be prioritzed above 2 bad browsers that form a minority. Altough yes, safari is the 2nd most used browser, it's still only 18% of the world market (and declining). So a fallback for these should do until it can be removed eventualy. https://gs.statcounter.com/ It's not just a simple scrolling issue but an overall performance killer.

  6. I would not recommend enabling lazy loading for all the images. It makes the forum way slower in my experience.

  7. It would be better to use the native method everywhere and fallback to the JS-based method only when needed, so the majority of users of modern browsers won't experience problems just because of a minority of technically backward Apple browsers. It's very easy because native lazy loading works perfectly fine when used with JS-based method at the same time.

  8. We added it to profile photos. We can't completely replace the Javascript solution yet, Safari & iOS do not support the native method. It is on our radar though and we're keeping an eye on support.

  9. It's your community, and you know it best, yet I'd suggest this is a slippery slope and offers a false sense of security. How do you know that another trusted long term member won't get into a situation with another member, necessitating you to intervene between those two? Or, that this person's ISP will randomly allocate them a new address? Or that this person has a new address every few weeks through no action of their own? Perhaps the IP space they are connected from blocks a large segment of others interested in your community. I would argue that IP blocks are antiquated and should not be used via IPS software, yet in CIC, it may be your only tool available. This type of blocking should be happening at the firewall. Making spaces for more closed-knit interaction and giving members tools that empower them to be responsible for their online safety are far better directions to head. Consider using forums that are only available to long-term members, or clubs that members can decide who gets in and who does not. Give members the ability to change their display names. Link to resources that help users understand their role in being safe online.

  11. The issue I have with delete content for spammers is there are no explicit safeguards to prevent this option for members of other groups from being banned. Not that I fear it would happen out of malice or intent but rather by accident or curiosity what happened if a moderator flagged someone as spammer who is a long time member?! I would prefer that this option be only allow to work on specific groups (newbies) not blankly across all groups - It seems highly unlikely that a long term member would randomly start spamming a site, this to me indicates their account were compromised and other mitigation should be taken. Such as putting said account in timeout wiping out credentials and putting the last X number of posts in to a queue for review.

    Badges look dated

    Badges are important in the sense that they allow a quick visual to know a little about the credibility of the writer of the message if I may say so. Maybe a simple registration date and a number of messages on a profile would be enough for some like you. If not more widely, they also allow to integrate a gamification system in order to encourage participation especially towards new registrants and to make the profile system more informative and evolving. This is the very first version and like very first version it is not the best but it will surely be improved over time just like IPS 1.0 was. Whatever thing we're dealing with, whether it's writing an article or setting up a web page, I have learned over time that the best I think is not to render them. heavy things with lots of written or visual repetition by seeing the user as a person who does not understand anything at all and that must be repeated as many times as possible or make things that are immediately obvious with lots of colors or big visuals with the goal that he can not miss anything that we want to convey to him. Rather, it may make things difficult to assimilate and to scare away because it is too tiring. Badges are a good thing but are not part of the main message for regular (and majority) users when opening a page. Therefore, it should be less intrusive. Maximum a single icon can be on the main page of the message and with a maximum of discretion. Because the goal is not to convey the main message of the page but to bring information to a new reader on a question which he asks himself "who am I in front?". He will have to search and he will find even if the information is discreet. Regular users know that such is the moderator, credibility in his posts etc. The gamification system is also becoming less useful for regular writers I think. unlike instagram and other social networks, i don't think the old editors here are looking to have as many likes and badges as possible but rather to have their post read and accepted.

  20. Yeah, your HTML is broken and it forces the text to be transparent in areas where it shouldn’t be transparent. I would try to turn off all 3rd-party plugins/apps and check the group formatting. Where does the coloring of the groups come from? Maybe that’s it.

  21. Honestly Invision, this is really poor form. Why didn't you include a message during the "upgrade" to say EXACTLY what would happen if you opted into the new system. Geez.

  24. The thing is, unless the image sizes are specified on the page, it doesn't matter which method you use, the page will still jump around as it loads. So, instead of height: auto, as it seems to be at the moment, the height of image thumbnails really should be set to the correct number of pixels.

  25. Testing shows there are no existing compatibility issues with PHP 8.0, but there are a couple minor/non-breaking bugs that will be addressed for IPS 4.6 in the next release. This update has already been submitted to the marketplace, but at the moment updates are taking up to 1-3 weeks to be approved by IPS, so there may be a bit of a delay before the update is officially available.

  26. You're so welcome! Glad to help after receiving so much help here myself. Am posting these instructions, just in case someone else ends up with this problem. If you go into AdminCP/Community/Forums/Forums . . . Find the forum board where this member posted, and click the small Edit/Pencil icon at the right. Click the "Posting Settings" tab. Under the "Posts" settings, be sure that the "Increase content counts" button is toggled to the on position.

  27. I didn't like the badges from when I first saw them. Now that they've been in place for a while, they look even worse. Plus, I have no idea what their purpose is. I have not updated my sites yet, probably in a few weeks. I will definitely not be using the new badge system.

  29. IPS are looking at compatibility. It looks like a workaround by switching back to using a port and IP address instead of my usual Unix Socket. IPS 4.5.4.2 still reports caching isn't working but it seems to be according to the increasing keys. Perhaps the red banner goes away after a while.

  30. !!! This is great news. My anxiety is kicking in anyway 😆 . Perhaps @kRSB can take a look and possibly update the file page to reflect that it's compatible with 4.6? 🙏

  31. I see why. They changed it. Before it was redirected to a page and the error was there. Now it shows a JS alert. Anyway, the error is now logged: } catch ( \Exception $e ) { \IPS\Log::debug( $e, 'content_debug' ); \IPS\Output::i()->error( 'edit_no_perm_err', '2S136/E', 404, '' ); } See the debug there. So go to ACP -> System -> Support -> System Log and the error has to be there. I, for example, renamed the column forums_posts.post to forums_posts.postX then I got the alert but the error is in the log: Check your logs.

  32. Found it: https://invisioncommunity.com/forums/topic/431279-suggestion-content-controller-edit/ You will download the file. Change 'edit_no_perm_err' to $e->getMessage(). Save. Upload. Edit the post. The “real” error will be there. Revert the edit. Save. Upload the file.

  33. I'm working on this app. Should be available in a couple of days then it's up to the marketplace moderators. I really don't promise achievements now. I haven't even tried that yet and I still have others resources to update. First will be a compatibility version with a couple of fixes for issues reported. New features will come in a future version.

    WebP everywhere in ACP

    Even on "Posting -> Attachments -> Allowed File Extensions" there is no WebP so we could not upload a webp if we do not have choose the "No restriction" option.

  36. I went to edit someone's post and I was met with this error: I've noticed this has happened on a few random posts but not all. Nothing in the content of the post seems out of the ordinary, it's just basic text. Any insight on how to fix this? May be worth noting that we don't have the time limit for post edits enabled, it's set to unlimited.

    Forms Support

    Thank you for reporting. This is a big more complex and I will need time to look into this bug. Unfortunately the only other work around right now would be to disable the Forms app while copying groups.

    Blog Suggestions

    Some, hopefully easy to implement blog suggestions: Select existing blogs and assign them a new category. I would think that would be pretty straight forward to do. I mean, I can feature, move, hide, etc. Why can't I set a category for selected blogs? Feature Blog Image. Before we had categories back, I was using the feature image to visually categorize. That means the same image gets uploaded dozens of times. It sure would be a great quality of life thing to set one per category as a default. It would be a nice speed improvement too to cache a handful of images instead of all of them being unique. Being able to set Feature image on multiple blogs at once would be great too for modernizing older content. Or changing things if you want to refresh images.

  45. @Makoto It's been a while since I last checked the list of members with disposable emails in our community. Right now we have 29 pages of users with disposable emails. My suggestions: In the "Members with disposable e-mails list, add a new column: number of posts An option to bulk prune all users with disposable e-mails, ideally with an option to set the number of posts, so, for example, we can safely purge all accounts with 0 posts. This could be added either in the screen mentioned above or at the main Member > Members > [gear icon] path In the list mentioned above, the links to the users' profile is incorrect. Where it is "&do=edit" should be "&do=view". Thanks!

  47. It won't be any time soon, if ever - the {theme} tag is still used for non-color settings for example. It'd be preferred to use the CSS variable approach for consistency and potentially future compatibility with new features, but it isn't a huge deal right now. That said, converting them should be easy in most cases. We did our entire framework in a few steps using find/replace in a text editor.
