    Joy Rex got a reaction from stu_m in Fluid View Forum Sidebar - Hide/Unhide?   
    I really like the Fluid view, but it would be great if there was a way to hide the forum selection sidebar once you've made your selections so the other sidebar items aren't pushed down because of it being at the top, or maybe move it to a modal when you activate Fluid view?

    I came across this neat article on how to have an SVG favicon that will honour a user's browser/OS light/dark mode using CSS: https://codyhouse.co/nuggets/svg-favicon-dark-mode
    As you can see, modern browser support is pretty good: https://caniuse.com/#feat=link-icon-svg
    I notice that one of the allowed file types for favicons isn't SVG - would that be something we can add in ourselves (it would be better if IPS officially supported it though)?

    Joy Rex got a reaction from Interferon in Everybody is choosing "Night Mode" nowadays....   
    I think the fact that IPS is themable negates the need for a "dark mode" which is popular with apps today. Perhaps if IPS provided a dark version of the default theme...
    If an application-level dark mode was implemented, then theme creators would have to support it with dark mode CSS for their themes - which raises the question - would an already dark theme go reverse in dark mode (e.g., light mode)? 😀

    Protect Your Forum With D.M.C.A Safe Harbor
    I post this once a year or when I see a proliferation of copyright lawsuits against web publishers - here's some novel (not legal) advice.
    It seems that the safest way to protect your community from copyright law firms is to claim D.M.C.A Safe Harbor protection.  By registering your sites on Copyright.Gov you might save yourself a lot of headache and big $$ money from content posted on your site without the copyright holder's permission - if one of your users posts someone else's content on your site without their permission, you might be liable.   Safe Harbor was designed by congress to protect web publishers from such liability.
    As I have been involved in several copyright / trademark lawsuits at the federal level, registering your site on Copyright.gov for $6.00 may provide a layer or protection for you and it's super easy to do.
    1. Go to the DMCA page on Copyright.gov HERE and register an account/agent (you or whoever you designate to receive legal notices).  After you register an account, simply add all of your websites and pay the $6.00 fee.  Note that each time you add or edit your sites, a $6.00 fee will apply each time.  One important note is that ( 37 C.F.R. § 201.38) requires you to use a physical street address and not a P.O. Box.  I have found generally that once a law firm understands that you have Safe Harbor, they might not even bother you because there's nothing in it for them ($ damages).
    2. Add a DMCA safe harbor statement on your website - this site is an excellent resource to help you frame it - please read it.
    3. On your forum, in an easy to find place, create a page/post to your DMCA statement and create a menu link to it.
    If you have any questions, I will try to assist.

    Joy Rex got a reaction from supernal in When plugin/application upgrades fail in 4.5   
    First off - my apologies for my rude assumption - guess I was in a bad mood when I wrote that...
    Second, I hear what you're saying - but how many IPS customers are like yourself and @Paul E. that do know what they are doing - probably not that many. So from a business perspective, it makes sense for IPS to move towards a framework or methodology that allows them more flexibility in software development since any support requests are likely to come though the ticketing system anyway.

    Joy Rex got a reaction from supernal in When plugin/application upgrades fail in 4.5   
    Against 1M records? IPS should give you a free license for massively optimizing their script!
    I see what you mean - so how they've changed the upgrade/install process has made it more difficult for users like yourself with the knowledge and understanding to be able to tinker under the hood so to speak - well, you can't say they didn't deliver the Apple Experience™ you were wanting!
    Hopefully IPS' support can help you out, especially when it seems you've done most of the heavy lifting for them.

    You've never done software development, have you?
    I cannot think of the hundreds, nay, thousands of hours IPS must have put into 4.5 - all the testing, planning, trying to make things as smooth as possible for their customers to upgrade their sites, etc.
    If the connection between the host and client is terminated, there's usually no way to tell the host process "hang on, something's wrong" and stop whatever processes are running, and record a stopping point (can you imagine if it was inside a query - I suppose a rollback is possible, but again, a lot of overhead for something that isn't likely going to occur).
    The absolute safest way is to run the upgrade via a RDP or similar process, so that way if the client connection is cut, the VM running the upgrade can continue uninterrupted (because presumably the host machine is on a solid connection with redundancies for power, etc.).
    This was unfortunately a case of bad luck on @Paul E. part, but I take exception blaming or insinuating that IPS is somehow "not determined enough".

    Joy Rex reacted to Mr 13 in Implement better compression for pasted images   
    Squoosh is an image compression web app made by Google Chrome Labs. It allows you to dive into the advanced options provided by various image compressors.

    Squoosh is open source. and it could be integrated into IPS.

    Here is why it's important:

    1. The image below was pasted directly into editor using CTRL+V, and it's size is 875 kb.

    2. The image below was pasted into squoosh.app using CTRL+V, saved with default settings and then uploaded to the post. Its size is just 42kb (x20.8 times better).
    *If IPS supported webp, then it could be just 32 kb, x27.4 times better.


    My suggestion is to give us an ability to save pasted images in the most efficient format instead of PNG.

    Don't you mean "customize my logo"?
    Have you considered creating a logo that would work on any theme (e.g., a treatment of your logo that generally works against both light and dark themes)?
    The biggest issue with what you're asking is lining up (presumably) HTML text with a graphic - maybe what they should do (or an addon creator) is create an editable area (using the CKEditor) for the logo, and that way people can use the controls in the editor to position their logo graphic (if they have one) and/or text of the site name (possibly as a variable so it changes as the site name changes).

    Joy Rex got a reaction from sobrenome in Font awesome 5.0   
    As @Upgradeovec mentioned, libraries like FA are (relatively) massive and you're probably using 1-5% of FA's library for IPS. If you created an icon set with just the icons needed for IPS and nothing more, it would be drastically smaller.
    And you wouldn't need an in-house designer; just contract with a designer on an as-needed basis to create the initial icons, and reach out as needed when more are required or a visual refresh is in order.
    Hopefully FontAwesome will have as @Upgradeovec suggested a "custom build" so only the icons needed would be included to reduce the overall footprint of FA, then it could be configured to exactly each person's needs.

    I think IPS should have its own SVG-based (or custom icon font) icon set for the default forum theme, and allow theme creators to specify their own or a library like FontAwesome (again, either SVG or icon font).

    The biggest issue with using FA5 is which method to use - SVG+JS will render (in my opinion) cleaner icons than the other (older) method, which is using the webfont. One important thing to consider when using the SVG+JS method is performance - if you have dozens of icons on screen, the JS has to find all the <i> elements and replace them, and using ::before and ::after pseudo elements can degrade performance even further.
