    @Michael.J can you just acknowledge this so we know whether to wait or move on. I can see you have been online multiple times but not read my PM yet, or responded in here. Can you give us a heads up please?

    My submission has been rejected for something that has been part of the widget since day one. That's me done with development on this platform, I'm sorry, but I won't be reuploading any more version of this or my other plugins.

    svit got a reaction from Adam.M in Community Map   
    We find the Community Map application very important for our sites (expats living abroad) and we are exploring ways how to 'project/promote' it more on the main page so that it is more obvious to first-time visitors that the map is available. While we have created a 'block' via pages (just a simple png file as shown below), we think there is a great potential of having it interactive as a 'hook', so that we could position it on top of the forums etc. Would it be possible/practical? I think introducing hooks for the app users would open doors to further use of this great application.

    svit reacted to SMen in Member's Country   
    I don't know if this helps or not, but I find that no matter what country is assigned/changed, it will revert back to the country of the registration IP address.  We haven't allowed registration when using an active VPN for some time, but some older members had used one. I manually changed their registration IP to the appropriate country to correct.

    As someone else mentioned, we too don't get countries saved as per members' choices, instead, other countries are getting assigned, which makes the app unusable for us, unfortunately. If you could have a look at it would be appreciated.

    Sorry for the time it has taken to get this done. I had lots of issues with my test install and required help from support.
    Finally got the new version upload and waiting approval from the moderators.
    This new version has a ton of new features, changes and many bug fixes from the previous version.

    I don't understand how the previous unsupported version worked? 😂

    This is nothing against Michael but I thought IPS are meant to check these things before being released, with this new stringent Marketplace?

    It appears the Community Map has been made public in the Marketplace! I managed to purchase it and upgrade the old Member Map app already and everything went smoothly! Thanks to Martin for supporting us and having the application 4.5 ready! To all admins, please note the note regarding upgrade in the file description.

    The issue is that core_members is a table that no third-party plugin or application should touch. Auto Welcome likely was using this prior to 4.5 and is now expected to move it elsewhere. The part that moves it elsewhere is likely what died on us, but all a big guess.

    svit reacted to xtech in Show us your IPB 4 sites!   
    I have a forum since 2002, running IPB since the beginning, 18 straight years running.
    https://forumusica.com, it's a community of portuguese musicians. It became, and still is, the largest musician community online in the country.
    It has been quite a journey, with many bumps on the road, including members leaving in disagreement with the rules and creating competing foruns (most of them already died after some time) and flame wars between musicians and bands. There was a funny story when in 2007 someone created a precisely equal forum! In 2013 the forum was 1 month down due to "admin team problems". Quite a journey, i would said.
    It had a boom from 2005 till 2009, then facebook started killing everything around and it suffered a lot. Since 2018 facebook privacy crisis it had gradually rebounded. The forum was always geared towards rock musicians, unfortunately now hip hop is trending, so we don't get as many new members as we used to get in the past. I could "switch" the focus hip hop to get more users, but then i would loose the rock user niche. As i am also geared towards rock, is also a personal preference. In 2013 i've decided to use IP Pages (IP Content) at the time and create some features to allow people to sell stuff and find other musicians. That helped greatly the forum to survive, because it provided additional value to users.
    You need a lot of passion to get a "pure" forum running, an interested community and... keep your feet on the ground, because this is a very challenging
    From 1000 people that visit your forum, 100 will get registered,  From these 100, 10 will post From these 10, 1 will become regular poster for years People's interests change with time and after some time they will just quit posting This means means you should focus on acquiring users, because it allows continuous renewal of the user base.
    Besides that: 
    People seldom care about creating content for others, the great majority just want to satisfy their own interests. Everyone is like that, including myself. It's just human nature and you can't change human nature. If you have something valuable to offer them, they will get it and go away. They will keep visiting if you continuously offer value to them. The question for forum longevity is how you get them giving back value to you and other users. Nowadays i am planning another community, yet 18 years later, it will surely be very different, because things changed a lot... content is now the king, as visuals are. Presenting an empty forum expecting that people join it and create content is just not realistic anymore.

    I'm sure you are able to export an entire folder as a KML or KMZ file. Most of the files I've tested with contains thousands of markers. 
    Yes. But I'll have to make quite a few changes in order to comply with the marketplace guidelines.

    I find it would be very interesting to have a live webinars provided IPS on dedicated topics (say 4.5 themes, 4.5 Pages etc.) including a space for Q/As. I would really benefit form being taken through various hidden corners of the IPS apps. The resulting videos could be made available here for offline watching and for technical support reference. Great for team bonding too :) What do you think?

    It would be nice if when looking at online users IPS had a library of known IP address ranges that belong to likes of Google / AWS or any such bots and include that other then 'Guest' 
    or at the very least include the country flag and prephas the country where the "guests" are from.

    That’s how it is. If you use any API different than UPLOAD, then you’ll have an option in the Link Actions menu in link view to upload manually the image. 
    You don’t need to change the API. 👍

    Since IPS are already in 4.5B10, some of us have it installed on our live sites (I know it generally was not recommended, but in real world that's what admins were doing after series of Betas released in order to implement or test the new functionality on their sites) Some application authors have already updated their apps and had them approved in the official 4.5 marketplace. I myself have several of the newly approved apps installed on my live sites. I am mentioning this as I think it is really safe to update the apps  being a developer and that the admins/clients would greatly benefit from apps being upgraded. I am afraid that it may more than another month to have the final 4.5 released, which could be far to long for many admins.
     
    Thanks for your consideration.
