  1. I take the size plus padding. So in this case it's 150px plus 15px padding on both side's of the avatar. If you want tighter padding you reduce the second number.
  2. As a person that was a garbage php coder to begin with and needing an upgrade to an old application I am glad I know Esther. First and foremost she doesn't make assumptions based on requests, she asks questions to be sure the functionality meets yours needs, she also makes sure that you get the product you want. Secondly, she is reasonable and patient. Being a match for your dev is hard. Having a dev that matches you is harder. Esther is both for me. She not only understood that I needed something specific but that I also was going to nitpick the templates to match. She didn't question my requests and changes and in the end I got exactly the thing I asked for, and more. I look forward to continuing to collaborate with Esther. She is amazing, diligent and reasonable. If you want the same then I recommend collaborating with her.
  3. Version 1.0.0


    This Mod allows for you to post as multiple personas, characters, alts, etc but not require multiple registrations. Sponsored and continued maintenance and development by Morrigan and the Initiative. Developed by Esther Eisner of Headstand Consulting*. If this is your first install you must create a character group before characters can be created (this is intended). You must also provide your member groups access to create characters. Features are: Per group settings for: Character Accounts Creation Character Account Editing Can delete own characters Can change character group Can moderate characters Can approve characters Can bypass approval Can share characters Can Moderate characters Character accounts are unusable until approved (if approving is enabled). Users are able to change their character without having to edit their post, moderators can change character accounts if they can "moderate characters" as well as reverting to your OOC account. Ability to unapprove a character. Character Groups, no permissions but you can: Create custom group colors and images just like having them in a real separate group Hide Specific Groups from the character list. Ability to globally disable character signatures. Ability to Move characters into a specific character group if they have not been used in X days. Custom Fields with the ability to make most fields mandatory as well as the ability to re-order these fields. Front end Characters list to view characters including the ability to sort by player, group and post count as well as look at your own characters. This displays the mini-profile for the listing. Who's Who list as an alternative to the character list to see which members own which characters easily. Custom Character hover card. Character embeds, link a character and get an embed that gives you all of the data provided in posts as well as their cover photo/avatar. Display characters avatar in the topic list as well as topic widgets. Front End Character profiles that you can edit in the Theme to make look custom with the code "$character->fields('key')" and the key is set when you are creating the profile field. Profiles include: Cover Photos Recent Post Activity Other characters by this member Custom fields set in the admin panel Include characters in Clubs and club icons in the mini-profile. Characters tab in member's profile to see all characters owned by that member. 2 Custom Widgets, one that is recently active characters with the date of their last post as well as a character count widget to show the count of how many characters are in which group. *Our developer is Esther Eisner but all tech support comes through the Initiative. Any support requests sent to Esther will be redirected to the Initiative per our request.


  4. Translation is be a developer of a game (which the whole platform was developed for) and get some special perks for being a dedicated game developer that partners with discord. There is no reading between the lines there. This isn't a "Lets find a random community directory" it's a directory dedicated to game developers that want to work with discord to host a community within discord. You're not hosting a community within discord. If you were, you wouldn't be complaining about it dying ON discord. So what does their gaming community matter to you?
  5. Quick bug and save for maybe verifying that a user gets registered I think Post Anonymously needs to be completely hidden from guest users (currently I'm getting spammed through this mod). But to explain the issue: Post before register is used. Any of my user groups can post anonymously. I do NOT have enforced post anonymously forums. As it stands the Post Anonymously thing bypasses proper post before Registering options. I have a few posts where the end user was able to post but there is no "Check Anonymous" data. It went through without moderation. Probably because I use an actual account (I use Posts appear as posted by) and that account is a proper user account that can post. So basically, Post Anonymously is bypassing post before register in this situation it appears. I noted the setting "Turn off 'Post Before Register' in forums where anonymous posting is enforced" but this isn't the case here. They are getting the option to choose to post anonymously as a guest which in turn is allowing them to bypass proper registration. I did verify and the IP was exclusive to 4 posts but no registrations. @TSP
  6. So first and foremost I believe if Discord is killing your forum that is a little on the way you run your discord chat. I have been using discord personally since it basically came out. Per my check I've had a site Discord server for my site since June 16th, 2016. The onus is on you to create the separation of site and chat. Having a "chat option" on site is not going to help you with this. It may uptick your registrations because people want to join your chat (but unlikely) but overall you're not going to fix the obvious problem that you are having which is getting people to enjoy or use your site more. First off, you need to make a larger separation. I have things in place for my staff to direct members to post on the site if a topic comes up that is relevant to the site or its topics. I also keep all questions to the site specifically. I have a questions room that exclusively redirects my users back to the site and is non-postable. Additionally, I've made a wall for users that aren't members by forcing new members to the discord to post their profile link to gain full access to the discord server. I also post things from my site into my discord server to get users attention back to the site at hand. By using these methods personally I've lost no sleep over having a discord server because at the end of the day its just another feature of my site (like having a chat that's directly on site) that I use to chat with users off topic and that's all its meant for. If you're looking to integrate discord onto your site to make it feel more like a chat I recommend looking into Titan Embeds or Widgetbot embeds. I personally don't use them as they are unnecessary for me but they may provide you with that "on site" chat feel that you want. It does not, by any means, change that users can join the chat and access your chat from the app though. I'm not sure where I read that you're black listed from search results. For the most part discord chats aren't searchable in a list anywhere, you have to be invited period. That entire post is about game developers.
  7. @DawPi for the "Only users that follow me" option could that please include administrators/moderators like the last option. As an administrator I don't want to have to follow or log in as a user to see their profile/status updates etc and nor should I have to. Otherwise, I love this plugin and so do my users!!
  8. @TheJackal84 I'm getting this issue currently as well. I am running the most recent version (1.2.0).
  9. Would you mind adding a 30-60 second delay to the auto-response? As it stands since it sends the moment they submit the message it appears on page refresh of their PM. This makes the user navigate away from the page and never know there was a reply to the PM until they go to check it again. The delay would at least trigger the notification system.
  10. That must have been it. I assumed it would be on by default.
  11. Actually. Sorry @SoftwareFactory this fixed me attaching my account but username syncing from IPS to Discord isn't working at all (not talking about my account. I had my staff try it after they changed their name and their name isn't synced.
  12. Awesome thank you. Will there be a possible future update to disable name syncing on a per group basis? I want the people that support the site (my subscribers) to have the ability to have custom names.
  13. So the username sync is automatic? There is no setting to turn this on or off even on a per group basis? I want/need it as a thing but I need to allow like my patrons, who pay to be able to have unique names to still get that privilege.
  14. @SoftwareFactory I just purchased and I was hoping it would at least have the role and username syncing. It appears to have role syncing but no nickname syncing? Is that a coming feature? It's sort of a deal breaker for me with a mod like this.
    I wasn't exactly LOOKING for this app but I will say having a trello type thing on my site is such a god-send you have no idea. Instead of having to manage a trello and a site it's all in one and I don't have to make my volunteer staff go to a million places to to deal with my level of crazy. One of my favorite things is that @CodingJungle has been really accepting of feedback and ideas as well as getting bugs fixed in a timely manner. From stats to assignments this is quickly becoming one of my fave 3rd party apps out of the box. My staff love it and I'm able to better organize tasks so that they are easily found instead of a massive (seemingly unending) list in a topic. It gives my staff a sense of accomplishment to see that their card(s) are completed. Heck, I've even moved my bug tracker to this so that it's easier to manage based on my staff groups. If you like to be organized and would prefer people don't leave your site or have people that simply don't like to leave your site this is a great way to coordinate projects, get some of your to-do lists out of a thread and actually get some people completing them. I have to say, since I implemented this I've already seen an increase in completed tasks by my staff just because they can see their progress. Thanks for this!!
  15. Is there any way we can get some filtering on forums, groups and reactions? I have a significant amount of forums and some aren't relevant to the statistics (for example my information forums or my archives) and they take up larger statistics etc. I'd like to be able to exclude or specifically include only certain forums into the statistics. I'd like the same for things like groups. I have a default group everyone is in and a significant amount of members are still in that group however I would like to see more of my patrons instead of the group of people that have never reached a post count to save their life, I'd also like to exclude the bot and admin group. For reactions, since I've had this site for years, before reactions were introduced, I have this massive offset of our main reaction (used to be called Like) and that's only because there were YEARS of it being the only one available. I'd like to exclude it to get a better understanding of the other reactions I use on my site. Unfortunately as it stands the widgets are half useless for me and the only reason I purchased the mod because we have this rainbow plethora of things. I additionally think that maybe having an option of the type of item shown? Instead of leaving it exclusive to pie graphs possibly let the admin choose between a pie graph a bar graph or a line graph? I know those should all be options. Thanks. Just to help you understand why I feel they are a little useless as is for larger sites.
  16. The only thing I've ever used Advanced tags/prefixes for was the prefixes advancements. I like having a set of prefixes for a forum that I can color coordinate and require or suggest for my users. I liked the fact that you could sort of set them as categories on forums but they didn't filter by forum when you clicked on them so if the tag spanned multiple categories it showed all from that tag instead of all of that tag in that category/forum. Plus it never worked on grid view if you modified the span of the grid which was horribly annoying.
  17. Hey @TheJackal84 I just recently purchased this, trying to setup shop items and I keep getting a similar error to the above people where it says it can't locate it. Could you let me know how to fix it? Like this one:
  18. So I figured I'd chime in here as far as a mechanical keyboard user as well as an avid gamer. First and foremost the only reason why gamers prefer mechanical keyboards over membrane keyboards is because most membrane based keyboards are not able to register key presses in the same way and in fact ignore anything after the first 5 key presses until one is executed and also because a membrane keyboard cannot recognize two key presses at the same time. (You want proof play or read reviews on the game ALEA... The game is literally unplayable without a mechanical keyboard). That being said it's all about preference. ALL mechanical keyboards have the nice physical response that you would want. Think old age typewriter and that satisfying feel of the key hitting where it's supposed to. The "color" as it were is more for how loud it is less for the way it works. It does also mean how hard you have to press it etc but it's still a preference thing here. As a gamer I use the Razer Black Widow. They have custom mechanical keyboard key colors colors. I use Razer Greens which are basically Cherry MX Blue's (from my understanding). I'll be honest. I had went from a laptop to a desktop using a membrane keyboard and I swore to my boyfriend that I would hate a mechanical keyboard because 'Whoa is me' it would be so horrible. Once I got into my groove? No issues. In fact I type more accurately, faster and more happily. I have to look at my keyboard far less and I am happily annoying anyone else in the room. In fact my BF has to ask me to stop typing a lot of the times just to stop hearing the clickety clack. I definitely think their are advantages to mechanical keyboards. Namely: Physical key press response (and audible depending on the color you use/get). Ability for it to register all key presses, not a set amount. Ability to recognize 2+ key presses as being simultaneous. Are they for everyone? No. Will they help you in typing? Maybe.... To you @Midnight Modding as far as relearning how to type. I don't know if there is an instructional course. Really you just need to set your fingers over the four keys and start working on changing your standard methods. I recognize where my fingers go by the way they feel on my mechanical. I don't know of a course in the world that can teach you to go from two fingers to ten fingers without active thought put into it.
  19. @MikeChristopher I suggested that too:
  20. I'll be honest I don't have a preference either way. My site is too large for fluid view to really work (at least my main site). I doubt for my smaller site that it will be necessary either as I don't plan to have that many pinned topics.
  21. Similar to the new update to blogs I think that there should be a way for club owners to add a few of the mentioned widgets in my other post to their sidebar themselves that should above the existing sidebar for the section the person is in.
  22. So I find the club widgets lacking! I feel to really engage someone to participate in their club these widgets should be implemented. SO here I go to start to explain widgets that I think are needed: The Club activity should be a widget that you can drag and drop anywhere so you can have that on more than the club page. Who's online in my clubs. Similar to the who's online list but has a list of members online that are in the members clubs only. Possibly with the number of clubs they have in common in parenthesis afterward so they can know how many clubs they have in common. Gallery, blog, downloads etc widgets that will only show recent club items. With this I think that the member should have options on what clubs show up in these feeds from some clubs settings in their account settings. So if I'm a part of 30 clubs (for an example) but I really need to see what's new in 1-3 of them I can control that is all I see in these widgets. Yes I'm aware we can use an activity stream (which is fabulous) but I'm looking for something more in your face and (for images and whatnot) more visually appealing than an activity stream.
  23. It doesn't show the notifications of linked accounts on a parent account as there is no official parent child relationship as the person is looking for.
