  1. Please can I just clarify.......... Say I set up a new reaction just for Administrators - "Agree" - what will members see? Will they see the "Agree" reaction, but not be able to use it or will it simply not be a visible option for them (this is what I need) Many thanks Bill

    Copyright - Removal Of Content

    Dear All Firstly I am located in the UK. When members post written content, I understand that we, the forum, are entitled to display that content for as long as we see fit. There is no right of the member to demand that we remove his posts. Is this correct? We will always try to work with members in this situation, but deleting content can (and does) cause existing threads to make no sense once some of the posts are removed. We have a clause in our forum rules: Whilst members retain the copyright to the photos they post, ATFOTF reserves the right to display said photos on any part of the site and for as long as we see fit. If a member voluntarily posts a photo that they own the copyright to and subsequently demands it's removal, are we legally or morally obliged to remove it? I've tried Googling the above, but don't get any satisfactory answers. Any guidance would be gratefully received. Many thanks Bill

    Anonymous Browsing Toggle ( Support Topic )

    Can you be a bit more specific please? I've searched the ACP for login and handlers and can't find anything. I've looked through but can't see anything that will do it.

    Anonymous Browsing Toggle ( Support Topic )

    The members don't know I've turned it off 🙂 I just need a way to force them out. Otherwise, how long will they remain anonymous?

    Anonymous Browsing Toggle ( Support Topic )

    I've brought and installed this and turned off anonymous browsing for all members except certain member groups. A couple of hours later some members are still shown as browsing anonymously. Am I right in thinking they need to logout before it will take effect? What if they never logout? Can I force everyone out? Many thanks Bill

    Brilliant app, but unfortunately it conflicted with another of my apps. Dev tried to fix but ended up giving me the choice between the two apps. Bookmarks lost. Dev refunded the price. Pity as I've since found out it's an easy fix!

    Inactive Members

    Unfortunately it doesn't work correctly (at least for me). I set up a rule to move members inactive for 36 months and it moved a member who had only been registered for 2 months (I didn't check further, there may have been more). I reported to the developer on two occasions, but he couldn't/wouldn't fix, he just refunded the price.

    Inactive Members

    I have been trying to clear out my Inactive Members and cannot believe that there is currently NO WAY to achieve this. If a Member logs in anonymously he won't register as active, so could visit daily but never show. I fully understand the purpose of logging in anonymously on the front end, but surely as site Administrator I should be able to know that a member has logged in/visited the site? The way things currently are I CANNOT clear out old accounts because I cannot positively say which are being used. Seems a big gap in the software in my opinion

    Members Tab (Support Topic)

    Sorry to disagree, but I can't see how $12.50 is expensive given the time these things to develop, test and support. I do have an issue though........ Member joined 4/10/17 - With us for 177 days Member joined 29/9/17 - With us for 17444 days Member joined 10/9/17 - With us for MINUS 5 Days (Numerous examples in list) Would also benefit greatly from a search box.

    Images In Posts

    We are a community that is image heavy. For years our members have been posting photos in forum topics. There was a setting limiting the number of attachments and we had this set sensibly and never had an issue. At some point IPS removed this setting - a backward step in my opinion. Unfortunately I was unaware they had removed it until members started posting huge numbers of photos in forum posts - sometimes in excess of 300. These posts caused issues and I had to open a support ticket. I was told that forum posts weren't meant to hold that many photos and that I should be using the Gallery. Point 1 - Why remove the setting to limit the amount of attachments in a post when the number of attachments in a post causes issues? Point 2 - Why wasn't the removal brought to my attention given the critical nature of it and the issues it could cause? We installed and introduced Gallery. I have tried my best to like Gallery, but it is not up to the high standard of the rest of the software suite. I've had to source plugins, even having custom plugins made just to get it to behave reasonably. I've had numerous support tickets open trying to sort bugs and it still isn't up to scratch. Point 3 - Will Gallery ever be brought up to scratch? If so, when can we reasonably expect to see it? Gallery is so far below the standard we've come to expect from IPS that we've abandoned it and returned to forum based photo topics. @All Astronauts has added a setting to the excellent plugin Kitchen Sink to restore the much needed attachment limit. So, our community has come full circle, we're back to where we started and we're happy. We've lost contributors and our forum is worse off for this episode. Please don't take away simple little settings - it has caused us much upheaval and trouble. Point 4 - @All Astronauts is knowledgeable and very helpful. Why doesn't he work at IPS? Many thanks Bill
