  1. Thanks
    Mark got a reaction from SJ77 in 'tasks' on -TESTINSTALL installation   
    Yes. To put Stripe into test mode you need to use the test mode API keys from your Stripe account.

    Just to note on the test gateways one: some providers (off the top of my head, I think Stripe is the only one) don't use that constant but give you different keys for test/live environments.
    Those two (emails and gateways) are the big ones, but there are probably quite a few others. For example, every now and again we get people who have managed to block themselves in our Spam Defense service by registering several accounts on a test site. Really you should avoid using any live data (like real people's emails) and disable all integrations with external sites/services on a test install.

    It should use whatever your browser has it's region set to, and if there is nothing there, not select anything as the default. Look here and see what your browser is reporting for "Language": https://www.whatsmybrowser.org
    Or, if you enable Google Maps autocomplete information and the user grants access, it will use your real location and autocomplete favouring addresses that are in the same city/etc as you

    The user's timezone automatically matches their device, and will update if it changes. So if you have your computer/phone/etc set to set its time zone automatically, you don't need to do anything when travelling.

    Mark got a reaction from opentype in Bulk email speed   
    Unfortunately that will not do what @Philooo is looking for. That constant is for reducing the amount of emails done per batch, but doesn't control how frequently batches are done (each task run does as many batches as it can before timing out) - if you reduce it, it will just run more batches in the same amount of time. 
    All of the constants are explained in init.php:
    // Maximum number of emails per batch // Note: changing this will have very little practical effect because the batches will just // get processed quicker - turning it down won't allow you to workaround server limitation // about how many emails can get sent. It's just to prevent sending more data to the email // server than it can handle in one go. // Has no effect on some email handlers (Sendgrid and IPS Cloud Email) which override this // with their own specific limits.

    Weird flex, but ok. Lots of people also like and enjoy the instant notifications. You do you, but as a forum admin, I’m not sure why you’d not want features that people can selectively enable to increase their engagement with your community.

    You are focused on what you do and what works for you. Broader user trends are different. As @opentype noted above, it is true that anecdotally there’s lots of people who actually prefer to not have push notifications enabled, or who maybe prefer email. However, it’s obtuse to not recognize that the broader market has moved to a place where engagement is massively increased with native push notifications. Facebook, Twitter, WhatsApp, Instagram, snapchat, etc etc have all essentially built their broader advertisement based business model around keeping eyeballs in the app and on the screen to increase advertising metrics. There is no better method to increase eyeball time than native notifications. They’ve already figured this out, shockingly around the same time that traditional forums started their engagement and retention decline. 🧐

    I suspect most of us like having users who keep our communities viable. >50% of mine use iOS to access via mobile browser. I don’t give a sh*t about android vs iOS or people’s inane fanboyism, I just want to service my users.

    It took a lot of careful consideration and elaborate engineering to come up with the sophisticated solution for keeping track of the entries. But I think it was worth the blood, sweat and tears I poured into it.
