  1. I can't find the devtools for 4.5.2. Did IPS change where they are downloaded?
  2. I suggest that IPS require all Marketplace downloads have the dev files for maintaining the download should the developer disappear available as a separate download. You can charge extra to download the dev files (say a fixed fee of $10 per Marketplace purchase) if you want to generate a little more revenue for the developers. I certainly have been very hesitant to install a Marketplace app/plugin if I am not sure I can easily take over maintaining the software myself (or hire someone else). Having the DEV files for the all software I deploy on my site is a requirement for me, and I would
  3. I'm starting a new community shortly and I just don't want my users to use deprecated features. Not a big deal, but if a feature is deprecated, I don't want to have someone use it and then react negatively when it goes away. Users don't like change (especially feature removals), in my experience.
  4. Is there an ACP setting to prevent any BBCode being parsed in user posts? I like to disable deprecated features for users before an update removes them permanently.
  5. Simply allow us as admins to set an attribute on each installed theme that designates the modes the theme supports, either light, dark, or both. Next, have the ACP Themes section support setting a default theme for light mode users and a default theme for dark mode users. Admins can then choose a third party theme for users in dark mode and the default IPS theme for users in light mode. IPS could even provide a separate dark default theme to be used by those of us that don't use third party themes. Finally, when a theme is loaded, it should be very simple to have a JS check for current mo
  6. Have you looked at Cloudflare Stream? It is relatively inexpensive at $1 per thousand minutes viewed and $5 per thousand minutes stored (per month). ?
  7. I keep checking this site for a blog post that describes first class support for video attachments in 4.5... I hope 4.5 does indeed add much better support for uploading and attaching videos to posts. Video hosting is very easy these days with cheap video streaming services like Cloudflare Stream. In addition to video hosting, I hope 4.5 comes with a better uploader for videos. The current uploader is miserable for uploading large files like videos. Fortunately, there is a very good open source uploader called Uppy that handles uploading both large and small files (and wa
  8. I need to add a "Copy to Clipboard" button to a couple of Text and TextArea form fields. Please add an option to do this to the Text & TextArea form helpers. Without this button, it is very hard for my users to select text and copy it to the clipboard on mobile. See the Javascript Selection and execCommand APIs that seem to be well supported by most browsers these days.
  9. On desktop, the new email shows as full screen, while the previous digest email was centered and fixed width. Before: After: Someone might have changed an email template at IPS?
  10. This is how digest emails looked on Saturday and now on Sunday: The font-size is incredibly small for me to read on my iPhone now. Something must have changed recently and it is a step backwards. Could you change the template so Digest emails are easier to read on the iPhone? Specifically, showing the photos in a column all by themselves is not good for small screens. The text should span the entire width of the screen and large enough to see. See this Twitter email that I get which doesn't waste so much space for the main text:
  11. Why are you so focused on what is missing in iOS for PWAs, like Web Push Api? Have you looked at the Twitter PWA on iOS? It is pretty indistinguishable from their native app and a great mobile experience for Twitter users. As for push notifications, I don't view this as a "must have" feature for a PWA or native app. Email notifications are just fine for many communities. In fact, as an iOS user, I don't want more push notifications from apps that aren't important that I be notified immediately of new content on the site. I can't even think of one forum that I want push notifications
  12. If you have no plans to release source code as a product, I suggest you release a proper PWA for the rest of us that can't work with a white-labeled, un-customized native app for our sites Also, the fact that iOS doesn't support Web Push API (but a different service for Push Notifications) doesn't affect me much in a PWA. I greatly prefer Email Notifications for my website since my users don't want a bunch of intrusive notifications on their devices any way, especially from a forum. I understand that many need to have intrusive push notifications to help drive engagement, but this isn't t
  13. My site uses all custom apps. I am in need for good mobile experience like true native apps can give. Any chance you will make the source code for this new app available for download so sites like mine can use as a starting point to building a custom app for our highly customized sites? Open sourcing the new app would be much appreciated. I'm willing to pay for the source code if it means I can build native apps for my site. I was planning on building a PWA for my site, but a native app (in addition to the PWA) would be great. I still need the PWA app for other platforms like De
  14. I don't mind doing ACP upgrades in the staging servers (for pre-deployment testing), but don't want to manually upgrade the production servers. Automating this process seems like a good thing to do to eliminate any downtime and to minimize the chance of error.
  15. Please consider providing a command line PHP script to perform installs/upgrades in a cronjob (or as single interactive command). I can handle automating updating the PHP files, but it is a problem to upgrade the database (which resides on multiple servers in multiple datacenters) in a production environment. I need to be able to perform upgrades of the database and the php files with minimal downtime, perhaps in the early mornings unattended. Ideally, upgrades could be performed in a rolling update to multiply PHP servers/MySQL databases. These services run in containers and rolling upda
