  1. I simply do not understand how this can be true. It looks like many others can't understand it either since this question keeps popping up. Surely that should tell you something isn't being communicated as it should be. If my server is idling (CPU, RAM and disk read/write usage are low) then how can the tasks be running as much as they can? I and many others have stated our servers' hardware could handle more. What resource on the server is the bottleneck? If you had told me that my server's CPU was at 100%, I would understand but I am yet to find out what exactly is slowing down the background task execution.
  2. Lightbox Problem

    My theme on this board doesn't look anything like your screenshot.
  3. Update on Invision Community 4.2

    So by August 3rd (4 weeks since this announcement) we should have a stable release. Let the countdown begin. 25 days to go...
  4. I finally realised why I dislike the expanded activity stream so much. It's because it's cluttered with too much trivial information. All it needs is something to break the information into more managable chunks. This is what I came up with with a few CSS tweaks and I really like it. As a reader I'm interested in the content but it doesn't stand out and my eyes wonder around. With this simple fix, I can see the posted content (text) immediately. What do you guys think?
  5. I noticed that bugs get removed from 4.2 bug tracker eventhough they haven't been resolved (bug is still present on this website). I assume this is to keep the bug list shorter but doesn't this cause confussion and more duplicate bug reports since you can't see someone else has already reported the same thing?
  6. New: Gallery Lightbox Navigation

    I really like that feature @Maxxius and the fact that it's an endless looping lightbox not like IPS Gallery where you have to go left/back (not intuitive), if you open the last image in the set.
  7. Is there a plugin that could bring this feature back? Let's say a user is searching for something on my community and the search results take him to page 50 of 100 of a topic. There are unread posts in that topic on page 89. How does the user even realize there are unread posts?
  8. When you view the gallery and the latest albums/images, you see tha newset images. When you click on them you visit the last image in that album. To view other images in that album you have to go left/back. Same thing in lightbox. I think this is bad UX. The images should loop endlessly. If I enter through the last added image, I should be able to continue to the first image (loop). I hope I have made this clear. I haven't seen any online gallery that works like IPS Gallery where you are taken to a dead end and have to go back go see more images.
  9. Currently we have a dot before item title to tell us if there is unread content in that item. In order to go to first unread post you have to click that dot. It's not very intuitive and kind of hard to do on a mobile device since the dot is small. I suggest the dot is replaced by an item that would say NEW and would look like a tag (in lack of a better word). It would be easier to click and it would be more intuitive. See attached image to get a better idea.
  10. New: Gallery Lightbox Navigation

    Does this mean attached images in posts will open in a lightbox when viewed on mobile devices or do these changes only apply to Gallery?
  11. New: Gallery Lightbox Navigation

    Finally! Two thumbs up.
  12. New: Delayed Deletes

    Had this in vBulletin years ago. Nothing ground breaking but a useful feature. I'm still waiting for some news about improvements like viewing images on mobile devices, lightbox behavior in Gallery (going to next/prev image straight from the lightbox), image upload being more user friendly etc. Are those even planned for 4.2?
  13. Pages is a great app but if you use it as a news portal, you're likely going to use tags to mark articles. Here comes the problem. When you want to see all articles marked with a certain tag, you get forwarded to a search result page that also displays topics, gallery images etc. with that tag. On top of that you also get duplicate content, if you store your comments in a topic. Both the article and topic for that article are displayed since they both share the same tags. I wish there was a similar display like there is for articles from the same category. This way you could only display articles with the same tag.
  14. Can you please post a link? I can't find it among his files.
  15. Since IPS is ignoring this issue, does anyone know how to bring back the lightbox for mobile view? It used to be there but according to @Rikki it was removed/disabled due to negative feedback yet negative feedback in this topic has been ignored for over a year now...
