    Ocean West got a reaction from CoffeeCake in ACP Search - Tag Discover New Feature Settings   
    I have gone a few weeks and months when a new toggle switch was introduced for a new feature but failed to find it.
    I was late to enjoy the new settings unless it's obvious a lot find and seek goes on in the acp. 
    Can we get a set of tags or something that when we type some tag specific to the version or something it will list ALL new settings and navigate me there?
    Or if by some magic the content of the release notes appeared in our own ACP and any new or altered 'setting' had a button or link to setting.

    Ocean West reacted to Daniel F in WYSIWYG Editor Block only in pages?   
    It seems that this was a bug in our upgrader.

    The WYSIWYG widget was indeed limited to be used in the pages app in the past, but we changed this 2018 for IPS 4.3.4 (geez, time flies:D ) , but due to a bug in our upgrader, the restriction was never changed, so all instances which were installed before we made the change were unfortunatly not able to use the widget outside of the pages app, while new installations were, hence the problem with reproducing it.
    I have fixed this now for an upcoming release 🙂

    Not sure. But just in case you are not aware: you can create the block in the ACP and then choose it on the front end as “custom block”. I prefer that method anyway. Much safer and easier to organize this way.

    Ocean West got a reaction from Matt in Do you get enough sleep? 😴   
    My watch, when I remember too ware it congratulates me on 8 hours of sleep.
    I use to have a Bed-it (apple purchased them) sleep strip monitor under the sheets but it was tedious you had to remember to open the app on your phone to record the data as it streams.
    However monitors don't really count for quality - especially if you need hydration in the night. 
    I seldom use an alarm if the window is open I have a sense of what time it is by the ebe and flow of traffic from the freeway about a mile away at night it sounds like a distant ocean, around 4:30 it changes to more of a waterfall. I do have Hue lights that turn on gradually too. 
    Mostly I am always acutely aware where my two cats are at all times. Especially when they are on the bed, when I toss and turn I have to move in such a way as not to disturb them; or they may go off with a game of the floor is lava which turns in to lively session kitty parkour.

    Ocean West got a reaction from Goza in Autoedit/Upload via ACP for Constants.php & Robots.txt   
    So in the ACP there are a few settings that require you to download and then ftp SFTP your constants file to the server.
    Could there ever be a way that the ACP could do this automatically? Since upgrading the site we never really have to download and upload any more?!

    Ocean West got a reaction from Unienc in Grid View should work at a category level.   
    When you click a Category you should also be in the same view as the index.
    And these buttons should remain.

    Ocean West got a reaction from CoffeeCake in 'Flag as Spammer' - Does it block use of e-mail address?   
    The issue I have with delete content for spammers is there are no explicit safeguards to prevent this option for members of other groups from being banned. 
    Not that I fear it would happen out of malice or intent but rather by accident or curiosity what happened if a moderator flagged someone as spammer who is a long time member?!
    I would prefer that this option be only allow to work on  specific groups (newbies) not blankly across all groups -
    It seems highly unlikely that a long term member would randomly start spamming a site, this to me indicates their account were compromised and other mitigation should be taken. Such as putting said account in timeout wiping out credentials and putting the last X number of posts in to a queue for review.

    Ocean West got a reaction from Unienc in Profile Field type based on group?   
    Currently a profile field type once set its always of said type.
    It would be so much better that once a member reaches a threshold and promoted to a different group than the type of profile fields could change from a text area to the editor.

    Ocean West reacted to opentype in Profile Field type based on group?   
    It’s probably too much of an edge case when implemented exactly the way you ask for. The clean and obvious solution is the ability to simply assign profile fields to groups. Then you could have the text area field assigned to one group and a separate editor field assigned to the other group. There would be a broad use for that and it always puzzled me that this isn’t possible already. It’s kind of obvious. We probably don’t want people to sign up and set all kinds of advertising links on their profile, but we might be happy to allow it later on when they move up to another member group of active members, paying members and so on.

    Go in to your ACP
    Go to the Support dashboard.
    Refer to this section, once it populates:

    Ocean West got a reaction from crmarks in Spam Defense tuning?   
    So nearly half of the registrants in 2021 were from India/Pakistan ( 226 out of 433 ) In my research none of these have posted anything to the site. Of these 90% had filled in their profile fields and a bio. Typically most real users don't. Many of the bio's have tons of links. or random marketing from weddings, to rentals, industrial supplies, CBD, Tarrot Reading etc. None of them have visited the site after they joined. 205 of them use aol / gmail / yahoo / me / outlook / hotmail email addresses there rest used a custom domain (17 of which were variants of the same domain ) and the one with the custom domain aimstormsolutions.com turns out I have 40 registered members (all of which fall under same issue except they may not be in India or registered before 2021) they've all passed the captcha, questions, spam prevention, and spam defense. So what can be done to better purge these as they happen or increase the Spam Defense. If I go thru and ban all these will this signal to IPS and fortify the system for others?

    If I remember correctly, when you click the (i), it says you can link your privacy policy when it explains how the user data can be deleted. That should be the applicable solution.

    Ocean West reacted to SteveFree in Q&A Forum Type needs comment option   
    I would be using the Q&A Forum type more often however, it's greatly flawed because it lacks the ability to have a conversation around the Question and each answer. Comments are needed.
    More detail:
    Currently you can only post Answers to a Q&A topic. This is a problem when people want to get more information about the question.  Do do this, they will need to post a comment or two and have a mini conversation before posting an Answer. This is normally done on other sites (Stackoverflow etc..).
     
    For example: 

     
    The issue if not being able to comment on a topic is the full discussion is lost with a bunch of "answers" and it makes the entire thing a mess. 
    SO, here's the feature request:
    1 - Allow ability to post multiple comments on the original Question/Post
    2 - Allow ability to post multiple comments on each answer
    3 - Allow Author/Moderator/Board Setting to enable/disable comments at the Topic/Forum/Category Level
    4 - Provide ability for the moderator to promote a comment to an answer and marked best answer.
    Here's another example of helpful comments being used vs. posting answers to have a conversation:

    Ocean West got a reaction from CoffeeCake in User Guides (this site)   
    When you have a section that has many subsections, it is impossible to go thru each section because it will collapse the tree each click and you have to find the section you were in and open in t again.
    it would be most helpful if there was a dynamic previous/next links at the end of the article on the content page
