    Maxxius reacted to AlexWebsites in Google May 2020 Algorithm Update   
    I saw significant traffic increases from March to April and then after April 21st a steep decline. Below is quantcast data from two of my IPS sites on monthly uniques where you can see the decline. Almost as if the pandemic spiked traffic and now its going back to pre-pandemic levels or lower.

    I believe that the art of conversation has diminished substantially since the inception of Social Media.  All people seem to want to do is share a photo or video and reap the rewards for doing so with likes, etc.  The comments seen on Social Media are banal, trite and completely inconsequential.  "I had bacon and eggs for breakfast" and 2 million likes flood in.  "Night, night all" and 600,000 likes appear out of nowhere.  "This is an image of my plant" and 500,000 likes come flooding in.
    Where is the conversation?  Where is the engagement of a number of people debating a topic?  It's gone down the tube because people have been dumbed down to accept the banalities of Social Media - it's quick, instant puerile gratification that deludes people into thinking hundred or thousands of people they have never met (and will probably never meet) actually like them and call them friend.
    At least in a forum you have the space and facilities to give a reasoned and thoughtful response to a question or opinion and thereafter a possible deep and meaningful (as well as rewarding) conversation.  It affords people to form more worthwhile bonds that could progress into 'real' friendships.  Forums have been left behind for minutia contacts without substance and those who have never used a forum (and probably never will) will never know just how amazing they can be.

    My site is dead as flip, it is really dead. Yet 5 years it's still online and running. So that's something right 😛

    Maxxius reacted to GTServices in Google Tag Manager   
    I agree, it should be part of IPS.
    For those unaware, Google Tag Manager requires code in HEAD and a noscript tag in BODY (immediately after the body tag).
    Most big boards use Tag Manager. I've seen a lot of smaller boards using Tag Manager.
    (Google Analytics is part of Tag Manager. If you have an Analytics account than you have access to Tag Manager.)
    Tag Manager is the BETTER option as it provides admins with more tools without the need to add more code to the site.
     eg. event tracking, conversions, remarketing, facebook pixel, etc
    I use Tag Manager for a number of things.
    It allows me to modify how a Bounce is counted in Analytics. 
    Analytics now counts a bounce if USER leaves the page quickly (less than 1 minute). If more than 1 minute it doesn't count as a bounce.
    So instead of seeing bounce rates as high as 70% I see 10-29% bounce rates. This metric is now more useful to me.
    Why the change?
    Because most Users land on a page from Google or some other channel just to read the content on the page. Once they finish reading - they EXIT. 
    It's only a problem if the content doesn't grab their attention. If they spend more than 1 minute on the page I know that they are actually reading (consuming information). This is a good thing. It tells me they are likely to come back.
    Now, when I see a high bounce rate I know the contents of the page needs attention, shouldn't be promoted, etc.
    eg. I use Bounce Rate to tell me if my homepage layout is working. At 10% Bounce rate with millions of sessions per week, I can say with confidence that it is.

    @AlexWright thank you so much for this post! It helped me make the IDENTICAL fURLs I had customized back in the day on 3.4.x to be the same in 4.4!
    BTW my default app will be Pages.
    What you did not mention that you have to translate is
    "topLevel": "forums", to your language. Thus I was able to translate this toplevel fURL and translated the rest in ACP and in the end I got results such as:
    Basically you have to do this for every app you want to translate, go to its folder, find furl.json file and edit it.
    Today IPS support told me this can't be done, but there it is. 🙂

    Hey team, I had an idea for an application...
    I would love for when a member logs in for the first time, or something is launched on your forum, to visually show some cues - literally pointing to important parts of the website.
    For example, a member logs in, and most of the screen darkens except for the "Create" button at the top and a message pops up saying "This is how to create a new topic." 
    Or "This is where to view your profile" or "This is where to leave a comment," that kind of thing. They can click "Got it" and the mini tutorial disappears. 
    It would be useful for current members when rolling out a new feature, too. 
    I find that new members are overwhelmed with the amount that can be done. I want to make it very easy and clear for them.

    Hi 🙂

    Great Plugin, first of all 🙂 I'm using the opt out option. Is it possible to add a city search option? From example, I'm from city "A". I see people near me. I would like to see people near another city ("B" , "C", "D" ) without change my location. "People Near Me" Site:

    And a second request. To add compatibility with the "Friends" application made by @onlyME. It's about the "People you may know" option. It does not consider "Friends" and shows in the "People you may know" section those Users who are already Friends.

    No this is not possible now. I think you can translate / rename "condition" with ACP translation tools.
    you talk about the front end or the adverts listing in the ACP?
    Yes, if you disable transactions buyer and seller will independently manage the transaction without passing through paypal (or the forum)
    This is something which is currently not among the development priorities of this app.
    For this request I can add a setting in the next release.
    That should be it, if you don't send the notification, maybe there's a bug. I'll check and get back to you.
    I'll continue to assist you for this issue with a PM.
    Working on a fix. 
    I think I'll be able to release a new version of the app within the week.

    Hello. I am noticing that the new change to modify notifications that are received from a person you follow does not seem to actually save. It seems once you exit the page you are on, it reverts back to following all content. Not sure if others have noticed, but I just thought I would let you know
    confirmed. Settings aren’t sticking! 
    Any ideas?
    EDIT: let me try clearing the cache with the support tool.

    Maxxius reacted to Pavel Chernitsky in Spare a moment to discuss our lord and savior, Tapatalk?   
    I want to make it perfectly clear, I don't mind my users preferring to use Tapatalk. I told them multiple time that we DO NOT support anything in the app outside of integration. And so, any problem they have with that p.o.s, they're more than welcome to submit a ticket to Tapatalk themselves.
    I honestly don't give half a crock of poo If they want to use that buggy and insecure excuse for an app (talking from experience), it's totally their prerogative. And if they want it, I'm happy to provide the option. Up until it comes to bite us in the ass. So if it hurts our income in any way (we're completely free and are barely keeping our heads above water), I'm kicking it out so fast it'll cause a sonic boom. 
    So I'm looking for any data on whether it does or doesn't "leech" our traffic and ad clicks.
