    Joey_M got a reaction from Michael R in IPB & Podcasting   
    I have asked @Adriano Faria to make a podcast manager, there's a lot of room for communities to deliver a podcast straight to their audience and it's a very popular feature for sites to have. I think once things get into a position whereby there's an app for this, it will fit the needs of quite a few on here.

    Joey_M got a reaction from Linux-Is-Best in SVG for logos and icons and WebP for images.   
    From what I've read it makes a lot of sense, the positives could see a large improvement for those that utilizes it - especially if .webp is used in conjunction.
    Most people don't have overcomplicated graphics or logos.

    We already know that in 4.6 we will be able to use the WebP format.
    We need webp NOW (.webp) images support But will SVG support also be added? Why? Because SVG format is intended for logos and icons. Assets load in lightning speed, much faster than in PNG.
    Please consider the suggestion 🙂

    Put up a patch here so you don't have to wait until the next update to fix this.
    Unfortunately I do rely on the internal embed support of IPB 4, so if it's not processing the embeds properly, it doesn't give the Videos app anything to work with.
    Have you tried using different urls to the same video?
    Hmmm, full embed video or thumbnail? I honestly haven't looked into this yet. I'd be a little concern about it loading multiple embeds if a lot of new videos were posted at once.

    I'd love to say soon but it's more medium term then short term unfortunately. IPB 4.5 really did take a lot of effort at the same time as when I was busy with real life. I won't go into the full details but there was a lot of surprises in there that developers weren't aware of. It's not easy when you've got nearly 100 apps and plugins and you have to make large changes to lots of them.

    COVID is really kicking my sites, I started gaining ways to fund my communities from within and even some third-party work.
    Last month, I lost an incredibly kind donator who chipped £10 for the last 2+ a few months.
    I've been ever do grateful for the support, donation drives go well but you can't always repeatedly ask for hand outs or hand ups - people soon become tired of it. However, there's still people out there willing to lend support.
    Unfortunately, this concern has impacted my enjoyment of what I do and I've taken time away from my main site.
    It's a community within the real world, without those live interactions there's little I can do. I'm trying to move into other avenues such as merch and emails (the latter I've neglected) but on those past occasions where the community got together I often had donations given to me in person.
    I've never known a feature to be requested so much, by many different people.
    As a long-standing user of IPS, Michael is someone who's shaped our communities through his apps (plus custom work). I value his time, effort and dedication highly.
    I'm just hopeful that Stripe might be added soon, with 4.6 it could be longer and I do understand. It's not easy to balance time with life and more important demands (I mean this with the utmost respect).
    It feels like the last roll of the dice for me, without the issues caused by COVID - I'd be just fine but everyone is in some form of Limbo. I would hate to be unable to keep something I care so much about. This application has helped me several times when I've really needed it, so I'm not complaining. I know Stripe will be handed at some stage. Take me back to the early 00s when things didn't cost so much. 👍🏻

    @breatheheavy: I am trying to find a dev that will create a widget/plugin that works with SendGrid mailing lists, this would allow members to unsubscribe directly from e-mails. I have previously used a script called Sendy which is very good, but I have moved to use SendGrid since my emails started to bounce. Hopefully, other IPS community users that use SendGrid would find this plugin/widget to be useful.

    I'm a bit busy with IPB 4.5 still, so it will be a while before I can add this. You might want to check with other developers who are available.
    Thank you, should have a reply up.

    I appreciate it.  Let me reach out.  Would be cool if you sold this app.  I'm sure it would sell more now a days than ever before.  It seems its pretty big demand for podcasting a vlogging and it doesn't seem very difficult.  Biggest piece is to have a decent player on the site (which you already have) and the ability to store files and then RSS feeds for playlists.  So close...  🙂. Thanks again, I'll reach out Joey_M

    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. 👍

    You can't update reviews?
    Unless I'm missing something, I find this a bit disappointing.
    Devs like @newbie LAC, @Mike John, @CodingJungle, @Adriano, @onlyME and others work hard on improving their plugin and applications, this can mean reviews quickly become redundant. I see the review as a way to say thank you, I try to review all of the items I enjoy and, that I believe would help other IPS customers in deciding if the purchase is worthwhile for them (as I try to be in-depth about my own usage).
    Can IPS please consider allowing us to update our reviews?
    I think sometimes it would help to make things clearer, as I have seen extremely harsh reviews and ratings requesting everything under the sun.
    That stays there as things stand, which seems a little one sided.
    Would every disgruntled buyer update their review? Probably not, but it could give developers a chance see their work more fairly accessed.
    In my case, I could speak more about the newer features, how often updates and bug fixes are released - which goes along way towards trusting people. As some just don't bother, or are busier with things that they feel deserves their focus, which is fair enough but if something changes for the better or worst, I would like to address it in my review.
    That said, I don't leave harsh or overly critical reviews.
    It's more me vouching that whatever the product is, is well worth your investment and time in using for your community.
    Please consider this... @Matt @Charles @Lindy

    I respect this, as it's only fair to those waiting for the updates for 4.5.
    Will be happy to offer this once you've finished, as it would make a huge difference for me. It's a struggle dealing with people who want to donate and help [which I am incredibly thankful for] but have no means or simply don't want to use PayPal.
    Thanks, Michael.

    I use a plugin on my browser (Firefox) to convert back to Jpeg when downloading. I know it exists for Chrome too. I serve .webp files on my site via Cloudflare. Only the cached versions from Cloudflare are .webp, while on my server they remain the original format they have.

    Everywhere seems to be using .webp files these days, except Facebook.
    It makes using images (which I have permission for) a little difficult when they're downloaded as .webp files and, I then need to convert them to usable images.
