  1. I suspect my explanation is over complicated. Try posting a test status update somewhere, with a couple of photo attachments. Edit it and you'll see the attachments are present at the bottom of the edit window. Convert it to a post and go in and look at that version. Edit it and you'll see that the attachments are no longer listed at the bottom of the edit window. You'll find that the thumbnail images are still present in the actual post, but these will get wiped when the housekeeping runs, because the attachments are no longer associated with the post.
  2. I have come across a serious issue when using this plug-in... For info: I use the thumbnails feature in IPS, so images on my Forum show as smaller versions, with the full-sized versions appearing when clicked. It's also worth noting that I host my images using S3. The issue: If a status update contains attachments, when it is converted into a post, the thumbnails are retained but the linked hi-res versions of the images are not. This means that they are available to begin with, but after a few hours they get removed my the system housekeeping. This means that when the thumbnails are clicked on, to display the large versions of the images, they not longer exist and appear broken. This can be verified by editing a converted post containing an attachment. When edited, no attachments are shown as being associated with the post.
  3. Thank you. The hidden group thing is no biggie. I must have dreamt it. I have noticed that the "Allow filtering by this group?" setting, which hides a group from filters such as the online user list and member search is not honoured. I look forward to the marker colours coming back soon. 🙂
  4. I have recently upgraded from Member Map and everything seems to have gone OK (other than a slight interlude dealing with an update from PHP7.1). I now see all my markers but they are all shown as blue pins. They were previously different colours for different member groups. To fix this, I jumped into the group permissions and edited the pin colours back to how they were. However, this hasn't worked. Also, I seem to remember there was a way to hide certain groups from the map, so the pins are not shown. Am I imagining this or is/was it a thing? Any help/advice much appreciated.
  5. Thank you. I'm currently using version 7.1 because the site fails on any version beyond that. Why that should be is currently under investigation.
  6. Just updated my Forum and also the Community Map. I get this error when I click on the 'Map Manager' link in the ACP...
  7. There's the same broken design issue as above (the Admin listing isn't responsive) in version 4.4.1. It happens for the new "Transaction Waiting For Payment" view.

    I'm running Invision version and I'm having an issue (in Snow version 1.3.2) where the snow doesn't stop at the bottom of the page. It continues falling forever and causes the browser window (Chrome) to infinitely extend downwards to accommodate the flakes. This happens on the default theme. Snow version 1.3.1 works fine.
  9. Following the latest IPS update to v4.4.3, the Featured Content slider on my site has developed a bland grey background, whereas before it was transparent. I've reverted back to my previous version (of Featured Content), 4.4.6 for now. Before: After:
  10. @Lindy That is exactly what I'm saying. I've applied the recent interim patches but the issue is still there. Note that I closed the ticket after being informed that the permissions are behaving as they should, so I can't currently respond to you there.
  11. Having submitted a ticket, it seems that this is working as intended: I still feel that this is debatable, given that it completely overrides the specific Forums selected in the whitelist and displays all new posts from everywhere. This is definitely counter intuitive. To have the ability to override the Forum whitelist OR everything (by selecting the 'all' checkbox) would greatly enhance the functionality.
  12. Thanks guys. I've applied the patch but the problem is still there. I'll submit a ticket.
  13. I have a post feed block configured to display content from only selected Forums. This works well and keeps admin chat (in private areas) out of the feed block (even if members without permission wouldn't see it anyway). I've recently been looking at configuring the feed so that general content that isn't available to Guests shows up in the Post Feed, as an incentive for them to register. However, if I disable the 'Honor permissions' toggle, within the Post Feed block editor, then everything recent, from every Forum is displayed within the feed to Guests, even from Forums that are not on the selection list and should be private. That means that the posts from the Admin area (which aren't visible to none admins) show up in the post feed for guests. Is this how it is meant to work, with the 'honor permissions' toggle overriding the Forum list, or is this possibly an issue?
  14. Having recently updated my Forum to the latest version, I'm liking the way that admin notifications are now gathered together in one location, under the little bell icon. However I'd really like to be able to add the validating member alerts to the Dashboard too (where they used to be located). The Dashboard has always been my first port-of-call when accessing the ACP and I think queued members are probably important enough to be allowed the option of being displayed there too, in required. Further to this, I notice that when you navigate to the notifications page and 'view all notifications', validating members do not display correctly on smaller/mobile devices. The cells are jumbled and cover each other, making them difficult to deal with. This is the only place in the ACP that I've come across a page that wasn't mobile friendly. An example screen grab is shown below (email and IP hidden to protect the innocent)...
