IPS Community Suite 4.1.9 Available

General Configuration 2016-03-23 ztpzu.pngWe have released version 4.1.9 with many bug fixes, performance improvements, and feature enhancements. Our thanks to the QA team and all our clients who participated in the beta release.

This is also a security release so please upgrade as soon as possible. All Suites will see the red alert banner show.

To be notified of updates as soon as they are available you can add an email address in your AdminCP under General Configuration.

 

New or Changed Features

  • When your link auto-embeds in a post such as with an image, YouTube video, Twitter link, etc. an option will now display to revert the embed back to a plain text link if you do not want the embed.
  • New setting to disable embedding.
  • Facebook/Twitter integration improvements
  • If you are an administrator and encounter a system error, additional debug output will now display. Regular members will see the normal error message.
  • Custom Fields for Support Requests in Commerce now show on the front-end.
  • If an advertisement is set up with a main image, but not smaller images for tablets/mobiles, the ad would not show at all on tablets/mobiles. This has changed so the main image will display on all devices unless smaller images are provided.
  • Topics scheduled to automatically lock or unlock will now reflect this in the topic listing and when viewing the topic.
  • Placing a link to a Facebook status will embed when possible.
  • When viewing a report, the container (for example, the forum) the content is from is displayed.
  • Three character searches are now allowed in the Admin CP Live Search.
  • The Account Settings page now uses vertical rather than horizontal tabs to prevent overflow.
  • If Gravatar is enabled, and a user has not defined an profile photo, then their email address will be used to fetch from Gravatar unless explicitly set not to.
  • Gfycat embeds now use their oEmbed endpoint rather than their JS API.
  • Using Amazon CloudFront as https provider will now be recognized as valid secure connection.
  • The member REST API endpoint will now return custom fields.
  • The Developer Center for Plugins now shows the filename in the list of hooks, and when editing a hook, a breadcrumb includes a link back to the list.
  • Inline notifications can now be dismissed
  • Efficiency improvements to the search index
  • You can now close a poll independently of the topic

And Activity Stream improvements:

We are well into development on version 4.1.10 which will follow along soon. Keep an eye on our Release Notes for updates on what will be coming in that release.

If you have any issues please open a support ticket. You can also submit reports to our bug tracker. Thank you!

If you get a fatal error and are an administrator it shows the full output of the error rather than just "An error occurred" which is useful for our support staff to assist you more quickly.

If you use custom fields on Commerce support desk feature they will now also show to the front-end user if you choose.

Oh!! You mean than extra fields we can make in ticket to add details to them that are not part of the product. NICE!

I like the update. Unfortunately I have not been given the option to do it -- on CitC, does the banner always appear immediately or does it take some time to get out to everybody?

It takes time, but you can force check it via your Admin CP > System > Applications > Check for Updates

Can we have an update on official php7 support?

Stories like these are only too common with big platforms swapping, and I'm sure IPS are wanting to do this for your own cloud based communities, just wondering what priority this is being given? Last update it was more that you were waiting on a third party library that you use to provide support? Is that still the case?

The Suite generally works fine on PHP 7 and we fix issues that are reported but we cannot really "certify" it until the third party library we use officially supports it as well.

Thank you! This will help in troubleshooting app/plugin errors as well.

Untranslatable "Yesterday" bug in Streams is still here. I can't believe you guys missed such an obvious thing. I even had a ticket regarding this bug and your colleague said it would be fixed in the future.

A few of my members are telling me of browser crashes with the new activity features

"The native web browser on my Android phone crashes about 2 out 5 times when I refresh my activity screen"

"Can't really use mobile version of activity feed, it keeps crashing"
