    Fantastic plugin, oddly, I only just realised I had this as I have been using a different plugin which isn't supported with 4.5 - this works flawlessly. ūüĎć

    Joey_M reacted to MMXII in [4.5] Improvements for badges   
    With 4.5 we got those nice and shiny badges:

    However there is not much we can do with these. No way to edit the icon (I know it can be done manually, I am talking about AdminCP options...), to way to change the inverval for how long a "recently joined" member is getting a badge, no option to display badges based on usergroups (not just if someone has moderator permissions) etc.
    Also the "hand icon" for recently joined members has received quite some negative feedback. It is misinterpreted for restrictions being in place instead of a waving hand (what I suppose it should be taken for).
    Please add a usergroup-based options: Display profile badge YES|NO (If YES, then 2nd option:) Edit profile badge: Background color (color picker) Icon Remove badge from moderator permissions (not needed anymore with the above option based on usergroups) For recently joined members, please add an option to choose for how many days the joined-recently-badge will be displayed.

    This was released, it unofficially works with 4.5 as I use it and it's flawless with 4.4

    This is probably best as a plugin (if it's possible).
    I'd highly recommend you requested.

    I'd love to see this implemented!
    Also, I think the leaderboard should be a widget! I've seen this suggested more times than I have had chicken dinners.

    Have you tried sending him a PM here?
    Sometimes e-mails can get lost, I'm self hosted with Google services and an issue caused at their end temporarily interfered with my exchange with a developer I was working with. Then again, he might have personal issues or, as many finding things difficult with the COVID-19 pandemic.
    I don't see why he wouldn't update his themes, I'd imagine it's a good revenue stream for him.
    Try to reach out again, I am sure he wouldn't mind.
    Best wishes to you bud.

    Yes! He’s actually amazing and I looove his work. But I’m not sure if he has plans to update to 4.5 or not. Usually he emails me back but it’s been a little while and nada so figured I’d start planning what I may need to do if he doesn’t respond.
    Brian, if you‚Äôre reading this, my topic was in no way meant to shade you. You‚Äôre awesomely brilliant and talented! ūüôŹūüôŹ

    This is because most designers haven't released updates to their skins for 4.5.0, since it's only in beta [12th version] as I write this post.
    It's a risk on us if we choose to upgrade when apps/themes aren't ready.
    You could switch to the default theme for a short time?
    PS. @Brian A. is a good egg, I doubt he would have abandoned his clients without good reason (if he hasn't replied).
    It might not mean to come across like it, but this could be taken the wrong way.
    Brian has been around for ages - probably longer than most people in this topic itself. I have worked a few times with him and, he's a great designer. Very prompt, I can't help but feel patience is the best word to describe this all.

    Joey_M got a reaction from Davyc in IPS vs Xenforo - For Australians   
    I haven't used Xenforo for a site myself, although the impression I have is similar those that buy Apple products and, state that it's better because of x, y, z (without naming anything of importance).
    I realise that people will mention every brand has some form of "fanboy", but I do feel Xenforo has this wrapped up as a gimmick.
    I do own a vBulletin, which I purchased because it fitted that project better and, the help I had was also more experienced with the software. I wasn't the biggest fan, I thought the ACP to navigate was a nightmare but on the front it was simple enough. Without waffling on to much, I feel IPS are moving forward whereas vBulletin looks dated now (quite badly) - Xenforo looks similar, somewhere in-between but it's never appealed.
    The sites that I frequent that use the software, always feel well designed but somewhat clunky.
    I would rather use SMF or MYBB and, figure out a way to make them responsive better within a CMS than use anything outside of IPS.

    Joey_M got a reaction from Losha1989 in [Question] What are your plans if you (or your admin) dies?   
    I have no plans as of now, however, I have been thinking about it a lot since I first read this topic.
    I'm hopeful my family would continue my work, I own two fantastic sites and a few minor ones which use Wordpress. However, I am very proud of the IPS ones I have and I feel the content produced is by far above the typical standard of a hobbyist such as myself.
    Since the age of 30, my health has rapidly declined. I look healthy to the eye, but I'm in a lot of pain.
    I suffer from a condition called Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, which causes me to dislocate my joints very easily, among pain (related to my joints), fibromyalgia (parts of my body), arthritis, irriatablebowl syndrome and other things.
    I'm now going through a stage whereby I might have kidney failure, so I am thinking a lot about what if.
    My son has seen me do my sites from a very young age, he knows what it takes and he does have some interest in them. I'm hoping as he becomes a teenager, he will get more and more interested, as he's recently decided he wants to become a graphic designer. He's actually spoken about learning to design sites and code so I think one day he might be messaging @ehren. and@newbie LAC for advice.
    It's a grim topic, but something that should be considered, our time spent on the things we do shouldn't stop when we die.

    Joey_M got a reaction from Jon Erickson in Spare a moment to discuss our lord and savior, Tapatalk?   
    @Pavel Chernitsky: I stopped using Tapatalk.
    Why? Updates seemed very buggy and rushed.
    They tended to take their time with releasing them, some was quick and others took quite some time. Neither made much difference, as it became a joke and I started having to put in support e-mails. I eventually called it "it" when the script caused issues with my VPS server.
    I am now using a webview app developed by @Jon Erickson.
    As he's also created a application which works with Firebase, so my users now get whatever notifications they would like and I can even send manual ones if I so wish.
    It might be worth reaching out.

    Just to mention, but @Jon Erickson has created an app to link IPS and Firebase together.
    I don't know what his plans are with regards to releasing it, however, it works flawlessly and Jon is a very good coder.
    Only reason I am mentioning this is due to knowing a few others who wanted exactly this solution, I'm looking forward to seeing the app released, as others should be able to take their IPS site more seriously with handheld devices.
    And, no disrespect to IPS - I feel their app is quite far from perfect for a site heavily built around IPS and third-party applications.
    Look out for the release folks. ūüĎć

    Joey_M reacted to Jon Erickson in [Tutorial] WHMCS OAuth2.0 SSO Integration   
    Greetings, with the industry standard of Single Sign-On (SSO) continually increasing, the need to provided authentication and authorization across your independent software systems is paramount for system administrators and web development engineers. For those who run WHMCS, a popular web hosting control platform, here is a quick tutorial to use your installation of IPB as an OAuth2.0 client and WHMCS as the OAuth2.0 server to provide SSO capabilities for your IPB and WHMCS systems.
    Step 1: Make sure your IP is whitelisted within the WHMCS control panel. We will be using the WHMCS API to manage and create our OAuth2.0 credentials. You can add your IP to the whitelisted IP's under Setup -> General Settings -> Security Tab -> "API IP Access Restriction".
    Step 2: Create a set of API credentials that we will use to access the WHMCS API that will allow us to create our OAuth2.0 credentials. You can add your API credentials within WHMCS control panel by going to Setup -> Staff Management -> Manage API Credentials. Create a new API credential - making sure to copy the identifier and secret. Your API credential will need access to an API role that has all "Authentication" permissions.
    Step 3: Download an application you can use to run REST API requests. I use Postman which is free and provides everything you will need. You can also use cURL.
    Step 4: Create an OAuth2.0 credential that will be used by IPB to obtain an authorization code my making a POST request to the WHMCS API. Make sure to fill in 'username' and 'password' with your API identifier and secret, respectively. You can obtain your IPB_OAUTH_REDIRECT_URI by logging into the IPB admin control panel, visit Login & Registration -> Create New -> Other OAuth2.0 -> Application Settings. 
    cURL Request
    $ch = curl_init(); curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, 'https://www.example.com/includes/api.php'); curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POST, 1); curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, http_build_query( array( 'action' => 'CreateOAuthCredential', 'username' => 'WHMCS_API_IDENTIFIER', 'password' => 'WHMCS_API_SECRET', 'granttype' => 'authorization_code', 'scope' => 'clientarea:sso clientarea:profile clientarea:billing_info clientarea:emails clientarea:announcements clientarea:downloads clientarea:knowledgebase clientarea:network_status clientarea:product_details clientarea:invoices clientarea:tickets clientarea:submit_ticket clientarea:shopping_cart_domain_register clientarea:shopping_cart_domain_transfer clientarea:upgrade', 'description' => 'OAuth2.0 credentials for IPB SSO.', 'responsetype' => 'json', 'redirectUri' => 'IPB_OAUTH_REDIRECT_URI', 'name' => 'IPB SSO' ) ) ); curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, 1); $response = curl_exec($ch); curl_close($ch); Postman

    Step 5: Copy the clientIdentifier and clientSecret you received.
    Step 6: Fill out IPB OAuth2.0 form with your known settings.
    Grant Type: Authorization Code Client Identifier: Your copied clientIdentifier Client Secret: Your copied clientSecret Client Authentication: Request Body Scopes to Request: openid, email, profile (Each one as a new line) Authorization Endpoint: https://www.linktowhmcsinstallation.com/oauth/authorize.php Authorization for AdminCP: Use the same endpoint as normal logins Token Endpoint: https://www.linktowhmcsinstallation.com/oauth/token.php User Information Endpoint: https://www.linktowhmcsinstallation.com/oauth/userinfo.php User ID Parameter: sub Display Name Parameter: name Email Address Parameter: email Step 7: Try it out!

    It's starting to cause trouble with obtaining groceries. some people in the UK are panic buying and others are just acting selfish/greedy.
    That said, it's not something I believe will impact my family much as we can adapt to eating differently if there's something we can't get. For example, I haven't been able to get pasta for the last two weeks, but having worked as a chef I realise I can make other things. Toad in the hole is a popular one with my family, no fuss. Just a massive Yorkshire pudding with several sausages - jobs a good one.
