    Rheddy got a reaction from Rikki in IPS Navigation Menu Feedback   
    @Rikki, well, when I scroll down through the topic, the Navigation Menu remains fixed at the top of the browser page. Sort of like a static sidebar that moves with you as you scroll down a website page. It happens on my modified IPS Forum Skin and it does the same on an unmodified forum skin. I haven't been able to explain it. I noticed it when I upgraded to IPS 4.2. I've tried installing various free forum skins and it's the same thing. The only thing I can say is that this "static" floating navigation menu seems to present itself on any forum skin I install.

    Rheddy got a reaction from Durango in 4.2.4 or security patch: Did it just un-happen?   
    It didn't happen to me so I'm clueless as to why it did that for you. When I discovered the patch was released, I logged into my ACP, went to Applications, ran the check for upgrades and discovered a new update was available. I ran the update and it ran perfectly, with no problems. I'm clueless as to why you get the messages on the screenshot you posted. That's the first time I've ever seen that, unless someone within your community ran the patch and it didn't complete the update. That's happen to me once before. But, it was corrected after a ran the update again.

    Rheddy got a reaction from christopher-w in How frequently are breaking changes introduced?   
    From my own personal experience and some limited knowledge where it pertains to IPS' releases, they do not make changes to the code unless it's an upgrade. When I say upgrades, what I mean are releases like 4.1, 4.2, 4.3. Maintenance and security patches that are released do not include any new features or changes to the code that require you to update that plugin, widget, block or application. There are a lot of plugins and widgets that don't require any updating. I noticed that some plugins that I used for IPS 4.1 didn't require an update to work with 4.2. But, that number has been around 25% of the plugins that I currently use.

    @jackflash, Display Name IS Username. LOLS. With the 4.x series, IPS removed the ability for administrators to use username and display names. One of the biggest mistakes I always thought they made because it now makes it easier for hackers to compromise IPS-related communities. If someone were despicable enough, they could target every administrator, moderator, super moderator and forum staff member and just continuously try to access your accounts, locking your accounts in the process.
    This is why I have always thought that IPS made a mistake removing both from the system.

    Ah! I wasn't trying to be offensive. But, when it comes right down to it, I wouldn't be concerned with an influx of Guests to your community. It's a really good thing. Only time I worry is when bots actually manage to break through the registration process.

    Rheddy got a reaction from O9C4 in improve your footer (Rules and Privacy Policy)   
    @O9C4, here's what I can tell you. I've been operating my website and community since 2004 and I have never ran into a problem where my community has been blocked and I have never been contacted by any member, user or government entity regarding my privacy policy nor my site being blocked by a country. It's because I go to extraordinary steps to ensure that no inappropriate content is posted on my site.
    I don't allow any pornography, no warez, no filesharing, no politics, no religion or indecent or potentially illegal content on my website or forums. It's been like this since I created my site and it's a policy that has served me well and my community has actually praised me on that particular issue. Whenever someone has asked me to rescind my policy on that, it's usually with a unanimous "no" from the majority of my members.
    The problem isn't with the privacy policy, although, every website operator is strongly encouraged to have one, the only time websites are actually blocked is for the type of content they host or allow to be posted on their site. But, it's always best, when you're unsure, to ask for advice from a legal professional. I'm sure there are online resource where you can ask an attorney free of charge about privacy policies in your own country for websites. You can also check out some sites for free legal advice such as:
    https://www.avvo.com/
    https://www.quora.com/
    Check out the following link, regarding privacy policies, I think this could help steer you in the right direction as well:

    Rheddy got a reaction from O9C4 in improve your footer (Rules and Privacy Policy)   
    Where your privacy policy is concerned, you don't have to comply with international laws. When creating a privacy policy, you just need to include a privacy policy for your local laws of your country/state/city/province. This is for private websites and communities. However, if your website or community is promoted to anyone under the age of 13, then you also have to include in your privacy policy regarding who your website and community is promoted to.
    This is NOT legal advice. I would advise everyone to check with the laws in your own country/nation regarding privacy policy laws regarding websites and proceed accordingly.
    I do not advise using a default privacy policy for your website. Use it as a boilerplate and modify it to fit the needs of your own community.

    Member Title is a column on core_members table and it has 64 chars length. To change, you need to edit a php file: applications\core\extensions\core\MemberForm\Profile.php. Find:
    $form->add( new \IPS\Helpers\Form\Text( 'member_title', $member->member_title, FALSE, array( 'maxLength' => 64 ) ) ); Change the 64 to whatever you want.
    Tried a quick plugin but no luck.

    2019? We'll be on IPS 7.2 by then! 
    I'm kidding, but 4.3 is underway and we should start talking about it in coming weeks. 
    Without too many spoilers, the focus for 4.3 is largely engineering and refinement. Gallery, clubs, search, etc.

    Rheddy got a reaction from ADKGamers in Whats next on the docket?   
    @Ramsesx, IPS 4.3 has not been released. Don't expect it to be released until late 2019. IPS doesn't even have a copy of it for themselves to use. IPS 4.2 has only recently been released as a final version. I expect that they won't start working on IPS 4.3 until late next year. Don't expect 4.3 until around late Fall of 2019.

    IPS rarely gives updates where it concerns maintenance patches. They give updates when it concerns a new feature or a major change to a feature. I've been a licensed user of IPS products since 2005 and I can tell you that upgrades are the only things that IPS gives updates on, never maintenance patches, until they are ready to be released. Maintenance patches, security releases, I've never seen them given an official update post on the site unless it's to announce that a new patch has been released.
    LOLS. HAHA
