    Real Hal9000 got a reaction from SUBRTX in Idea: Community Wrapped   
    Happy new year,
    I really like some posts I get from services like Spotify and Hootsuite which shows my use of the service during the year. For example I'm sure you know Spotify shows you every December (it's calling it Wrapped 2020) which songs were your favorites one, which genre you liked more, how many minutes you heard music and so many other interesting stats. 
    It will be interesting to have a similar feature where a user of our community could visit a page and see specific stats about him and his presence in the site. Some examples could be "how many posts/topic you've creates", "how many reactions you've used", "how many pm's you've send", "which forum category you posted most of your messages", "which file you downloaded more", "your most popular message" etc. It could also be nice if the feature could be expanded in order to support 3rd party apps.
    Just my 2 cents.

    Real Hal9000 got a reaction from Ryan M in GDPR Consent Banner and IPS   
    Hello,
    I feel we should revisit the platform’s compliance with GDPR, in light of the latest developments and clarifications issued by the EU. Had some discussions, read a lot about this and it's clear to me that the classic Cookie strip with one button (I accept) simply doesn't cut it anymore and would make the website owner liable for not fully following the current regulations.

    It's been brought to my attention from the ad network we use, that we should provide a full Consent message to every visitor of our site, and give them the option to choose which cookies, if any, they would want to be used during their visit. There are already many services out there like Cookiebot, Quantcast and OneTrust which can scan one’s site and automate the process by creating this banner. Of course even if they have limited free packages, my main concern is that there are limitations to styling, speed, translation, etc. I feel that such features must be provided from the platform itself, which must integrate the IAB Consent Framework. 
    A valid cookie consent banner has to look like the one Cookiebot provides, offering the ability to choose the type of cookies the visitor wants. If you’d like to see a live example, visit this page.

    Real Hal9000 reacted to All Astronauts in Request Proper File Storage Handler Extension   
    @Martin A., after getting the low-down from me on this hitch, suggested this should be brought up to you guys before 4.5 is feature locked. I suspect this deadline may have already passed but this still would be nice to get fixed up.
    PROBLEM: Alternative storage handlers (e.g. non-Amazon S3 providers, Azure, etc.) when added via 3rd party applications will crash routine IPS upgrades.
    If you add a new file storage service (S3 alternative, whatever), such that it really is there, existing as a source file in your app, and correctly listed in core_file_storage (method field) and you hook onto \IPS\File\storageHandlers, you have no problems - everything works seamlessly - until you upgrade. During the upgrade process, that method is hit, minus any hooks, and the upgrade fails at that point as it tries to understand why there are files with a storageHandler that doesn't exist. 
    That method is locked down to only providing the built-in IPS options of FileSystem, Amazon (S3), Database, and the depreciated FTP. When hooked by your application, again, everything is fine. During upgrades however, that hook will not be used, leaving only those IPS default options as valid.
    It's easy to skip around this by directly altering the upgrade url to skip to the next step, but it's a show-stopper for a Marketplace or production release (unless you have a direct hand on the upgrade process for the site in question)
    The "easy" solution would be to adjust the hard-coded array the \IPS\File\storageHandler method returns somehow. You could change the core_file_storage database method field to store the entire class name instead of just the end bit - that is, store\IPS\File\FileSystem instead of just FileSystem - 3rd party apps would end up in there as \IPS\MyApp\MyStorageHandler, and then just read that out for that storageHandler method BUT you'd still have to muck about in many other places to account for this and the more I think about it it's likely too messy in the end.
    Given that, an extension seems to be the much better option. 
    For the few of us who are running customs on these, this isn't the end of the world (it's just skipping the upgrade step), but if allowing more file storage services to be available to end-users to appear via the Marketplace is going to happen, this will need to be addressed eventually.

    Will Invision Community 4.4 include CKEditor 5? If not, then I would like the font size button and text alignment button to be like in CKEditor 5.
    1. Font size:

    This button looks better on the toolbar. The list of options is simple, concise and convenient. In addition, it will not allow users to make the font size too small or too large.
    2. Text alignment:

    This button takes up less space on the toolbar, and it is more convenient to use it in the editor on a smartphone, for example.

    @Mark has indicated you can just hook on \IPS\Content\Search\Elastic\Index::indexData() and throw in whatever data you want. You don't need to predefine the fields in the index like we do.

    Real Hal9000 reacted to Martin A. in Add custom data to Elastic index   
    In an app I'm developing I have the need to do a number range filtering on search results, for showing items where the price is between 100 and 200, for instance.
    Due to the insanely improved relevancy sorting you get by using Elastic over MySQL, we have to use Elastic. But how can I add my own data to the index? Looking at IPS\Content\Search\Elastic\Index::init(), that (as with the rest of the search classes) method does not offer an easy way to modify, only way is to duplicate the whole method in a hook.
    May I suggest two new indexes there? "index_extra_number" and "index_extra_string". Both for cases where 3rd party apps have a need to index additional data.
    I don't see any other way of doing this. Doing the filtering post-search, in the Results class, could cause a whole lot of other issues.

    I hope IPS will take a look to Progressive Web Apps and Credentials API. If this will be supported then all users be able to create their own apps (via webview) just in a few clicks if they need to (and even if they don't need to have separate app, Progressive Web App still will be available for all visitors).
    It's easy enough to implemet but gives very huge advantages comparable to classic(native) apps.

    It is entirely possible, for what it's worth, to modify your skin template so that if the user has ignored the poster the post doesn't show up at all. Granted, it could make for some confusion (i.e. post #1, post #2, post #4) but that would only be a minor thing.

    The REST API is a great feature that allows you to easily interface with the functions of IPS Community Suite programmatically from an external system.
    We are adding more endpoints in 4.2 to the REST API so please let us know any functions you would like to see.

    Real Hal9000 reacted to Colonel_mortis in IPS, please specify the app in {template} tags   
    In the {template} template tags, it would help massively if you could specify the app except where there is a specific reason not to, so that the templates can be reused in other apps. The one that's bothering me specifically at the moment is on line 2 of core/html/front/system/settings.phtml, where you include the pageHeader without specifying that it needs to be in core. This means that, without requiring everyone who will use my app to modify that template to add the app in there, there is no way to reuse that template in my own app. The reason I want this is that I am adding a new item to the settings page (which is a painful experience btw), but I need the URLs to be handled by my own app rather than all in a settings hook, because I need a whole controller for it, and I have some extra authentication checks in execute.
    For now, can you please add that particular app specifier so that my app will work, and in future can you try to include them where possible. In future, it might make sense (though it would be a breaking change) to make the app default to app that the current template is from (so anything inside a template from core would be assumed to be in core), with maybe a special specifier like "@current" to use the current app that the user is viewing.

    Then I got a file with this field filled:

     
     But when I search for something or here, I got nothing:

     
    Also tried to search for:
    here "something here" something here something+ here+  
    How it should be?
    Exactly like PROFILE FIELDS on Members search:

     
    Those two (yelllow) fields are profile fields, so the user can search for them.
    That doesn't happen on Extra Fields model. My Extra Field do not appear in the Advanced Search form:

    No sign of the Extra Field there.
    What's the point in allow the user to add a bunch of extra fields and do not retrieve records based on them?
    I would like to request the addition of Extra Fields in the Advanced Search form, when the app uses it.
    Thank you.
