  1. We can't set a fixed height on images because images need to remain responsive (i.e. scaling with the browser window). For that reason, we set a width and a ratio, and calculate the height using JS. You are correct that on very slow connections, the JS can take a second or two to execute and add the placeholder, but even without lazy-loading, images would also 'jump' as the browser downloads them and inserts them into the page. This is unfortunately a trade-off, but for those on slow connections lazy-loading should ultimately be a benefit since their browser isn't having to load a bunch of images they aren't seeing yet.
  2. Each site can set their own defaults here, so it'd depend on the site you're using. This is already the case (in fact, we're looking at simplifying the process a little bit because there's too much customization, which is confusing).
  3. We actually recently added a review of notification functionality to our internal list, and this is one of the pain points that came up. We'll hopefully be able to address it in the not too distant future.
  4. I've logged a bug report for this so we can take a closer look.
  5. I've submitted a change for 4.4.4 that will disable preloading of this sound file (meaning, it'll just load on demand when it's needed, rather than on page load).
  6. I'm not sure a complete SPA approach will ever be a good fit for our platform. That said, I could imagine that we might have a collection of 'SPAs' for key workflows - e.g., going from a list of topics into a topic, replying etc. might be one seamless process. User profiles might be another. Potentially the whole ACP could be one (or maybe each section of the ACP). GitHub takes this approach and it works well.
  7. Kind of. They have similar-ish approaches. Whereas React deals exclusively with components, Vue can do components but they're optional. There are a lot of benefits to any of the modern JS frameworks though, be it React, Vue or Angular. I'm not sure if IPS5 will have the scope to move all of our JS to a new framework, but we're always keeping an eye on things and we'll make those decisions when the time comes.
  8. .ipsApp_front is also a class on the body element, so you need to remove the space (I've also moved that class to the front of the selector for clarity): body.ipsApp_front[data-pageapp="forums"][data-pagemodule="forums"][data-pagecontroller="index"] .ipsBreadcrumb { display: none !important; } An alternative way is using the data-pagelocation attribute in the same way you've used the others, since that tells you whether it's 'front' or 'admin': body[data-pagelocation="front"][data-pageapp="forums"][data-pagemodule="forums"][data-pagecontroller="index"] .ipsBreadcrumb { display: none !important; } Either of those approaches should work 🙂
  9. We haven't changed any font sizes recently. Check you haven't accidentally zoomed the page out (e.g. Cmd/Ctrl+0 on Chrome).
  10. It's a CSS selector 🙂 .ipsType_richText.ipsType_normal > p:first-child:first-letter { ... }
  11. I agree. We added it in 4.x because users were used to the position of it in 3.x, but these days I think it's probably unnecessary.
  12. That shouldn't be the case - while we only offer US-based regions, it should not be slow even from Europe. We host many European sites without issue. I'd definitely recommend submitting a ticket so we can take a look and see what's going on 🙂
  13. Personally, I don't think that's fair on the person who has quoted you. It could substantially change the meaning of their response. I think the quote needs to show what you had said at the time you were quoted.
  14. We certainly understand that 🙂I'm almost positive v4 will be maintained for a considerable period of time after v5 is available. That said, we of course need to continue to press forward and modernize the platform, especially in terms of UI and taking advantage of more modern approaches to development. We will of course do everything we can to make it as painless as possible when the time comes.
  15. Yeah, I do actually agree with you. But I still love React more.
