    Profile Privacy

    There may be a alternative solution here.. Your only choice as the software is now is to move the users into a moderator group and individually assign each one permissions as to what they can or can not do in that group. If you didn't have a lot of users this would work, if you had a lot of requests for memberships, it may be tedious to say the least, but it is a solution. How this would work also is you'd create a new profile field and chose not to turn on "Show publicly on member's profile". That way this only shows to the moderator group or staff. That's the only option now as I see it unless someone creates a specific plug-in for you. You could hide each custom field you create doing this but not the entire page. Kind Regards

    Attention: * Come One, Come All *

    I'll drop a pm by Monday .. On a side note, a co-worker tells me 50 is old 😄 .. I like your answer better 😄 I also agree, both Adriano and Mike are very reputable devs here at IPB and have been for many many years. Their success is obvious from the time they've successfully released products for the community. Kind regards

    If I may ask, at what age is considered old? 😄 Maybe when one gets their first aarp notice 😄 ?

    My compliments to the team

    No I haven't! Didn't know it existed yet... Your accusation is completely, utterly false. On top of this I've had literally not one reason yet to use something like that. Keep in mind I didn't know this tool was available as of yet, so very plausibly, The information was created because someone purchased something and it's coming from that purchase / sale. Did that person agree to any clause from IPB saying that information would be divulged to any third party from the sale? Not sure ... This isn't a general statistics number like how many sales did we have this year, it's a direct way to see purchase / renewal purchase information for a specific site that was derived from a sale. This isn't a content issue either. Whatever the scenario it's no reason to throw out accusations and get your panties in a bunch! IPB will surely come in and answer this, calm down.. Please put me back on ignore too.. So where's that check tool located?

    More than likely GDPR is playing a part in this due to the release of private information. Is verifying someones website a violation of personal information? Possibly because it's combined with their purchase and it's a third party verifying that information.

    Copyright - Removal Of Content

    Why not just purchase an hours worth of legal advice from a pro instead of depending on others with no legal background? As a bonus for getting real legal advice you may not get sued 🙂

    Outdated IPS CSS Framework

    Wait till Lindy sees you sneaked a screen of that!! 😄

    my grief

    Not sure if this will help Chris but when issues like this arise I've found it about a 100 times more productive to drop @Lindy a line or two or three 😄 Keep in mind there's a person that deals with issues or concerns that should be dealt with outside the scope of what this forum was really designed for. And TBH, he's really a pretty fair person, when he's not driving a gm product around anyhow. GM guys and their bloated egos you know 😄

    Your GDPR questions answered

    In many instances one could come up with many many reasons to retain data from "forgotten" users. https://www.mycustomer.com/marketing/data/gdpr-and-the-right-to-be-forgotten-can-you-reject-a-request-for-erasure

    Not really called for here. No reason to resort to this. You may want to consider using your own advice here. @Adriano Faria is exactly right here. Instead of tongue lashing this person, just turn the submission in and let IPB decide if it needs to be available or not.

    Theme system: Feedback and issues

    These 2 issues are one in the same. If you run designers mode all your changes need to be done in that specific 1st time. If you come back and run designers mode again, that changes which files was edited last. That's where the issue is. If you get it all right the first run, your customers will be able to use the up-grader but if you didn't and needed to go back, your customers changed files will then read it was not edited because it was not edited the last designers mode run. I've explained this several times. Unless IPB can figure out a way for designers mode to remember the changes in that specific version then we'd be good to go but DM is not remembering by version but by designers mode run. Yep.... tried to get someone to hear me on this also. I have a blazing very powerful local server, I can run through themes pretty quick, but not quick enough imo and now the converter has been added into the file dump and replace during designers mode runs adding more to the time yet. As far as the parent child theme issue, that's a real issue and here's why imo. This is the way I want to go however, I like to install a new local version every time one comes out and transfer my themes all to that new version. I do not upgrade my local versions. That means I will lose all my parent child permissions and they no longer exist. When you transfer the themes into a new local version, they all act independent at that point instead of having a parent and the last time I tried this I couldn't even edit any custom html files because the theme was not the parent. As far as time consumption, this is a very big issue for me. Waiting time and time gain to run my themes and wait is a pita to be honest.

    Categories for clubs

    IPB already sells a forums application, why be redundant? Clubs wasn't designed or meant to have a replication of the full blown forums application. I've belonged to a few clubs myself over the years and really none of them were big clubs (car clubs). So when clubs or groups meet they usually do it in one location. The one location here fits perfect the way I feel about the single club forum and personifies what a club is all about. I also feel a single forum in the clubs case is best because it really does encourage posting. There's no rules or worries about where to post specific comments / topics , no searching for comments through countless amounts of forums and more, it's just quick, easy and convenient and filled with most current topics. Most clubs I've ever belonged too usually didn't have a geek like me in it and certainly most were pc illiterate unfortunately for the most part but... if they had a phone that was another issue which brings me to my next point - mobile. In mobile we want to make it easier for users to get what they want to interact as quick as possible without requirements / extra time of posting to a specific forum. I open my phone, find my club, hit the forum tab and walla, everything I need without the need to do more. My post is just my opinion on my past club experiences so what I say may not apply to every situation but I feel would apply to most. Just my 2 cents here. Regards

    Is it worth it to upgrade?

    @sotrix Choice 1. For a test install, download a IPB copy and install it to a local application like WAMP etc... Test and develop.. Choice 2. You can also use a live server site to test 1 copy with. Upload IPB to a test url, install it, test and develop :)
