  1. What about sites that have years of embedded images already? Some of us have been storing those images on our servers for years now. wool old/existing image proxy images we already have saved continue to work, or will all of those stored proxy image break on upgrade?
  2. The default streams created by ips already use nice furls stream id furls are fine for streams created by members, but system streams created via admin should have more control when adding new default streams to the ACP , there should be an option to set the url for that stream.
  3. We've needed this for SO LONG. Prior to the 4.x series, you could customize the content spy app to get a semi-custom home page for users. And activity streams are decent, but very manual for the users. It would be so great if IPS ripped off a page from tapatalk, and provided a main "stream" homepage, that intelligently updated based on the user (what they reply to, what they search for, etc).
  4. Chrome and FF both support it. MS edge chromium engine will release on Jan 15th'ish. So about 60% of all web traffic is covered with loading=lazy right there (until safari adapts it). In addition, loading=lazy works intelligently in combination with traditional lazy loading scripts (they built it into the browser engine). You actually get even better performance when using BOTH. There's zero downside to including that attribute on all images and iframes in addition to the javascript version. You get the best of both worlds.
  5. This is the weirdest thing. I think we've narrowed it down to a conflict between Google tag manager (used to load Google analytics) and this app. But we're still trying to figure out why the issue only shows up when this app is installed AND Google tag manager is enabled. But doesn't seem to affect Firefox at all while affecting every other browser. Will report back if we can figure out what the exact issue is
  6. I've only installed in my my sandbox at this point because of the issue, so if you like I can give you access (or @teraßyte can as well). P.S. I have replicated the issue on Safari/Mac as well as Safari on iOS. The only browser I've been able to get it to work on is Firefox/Windows/Desktop (even firefox iOS app has the same bug). Anyway, just let me know if you don't want to look into it so we can arrange a refund. The app is a useful utility, but I'm not going to be upset if you'd rather just cancel out the purchase instead of looking into it.
  7. Are there any known issues with the latest version of this app on IPS 4.3.6 and chrome? I just bought this app, and it works 100% on firefox. But on chrome, after installing the app, the main navigation doesn't work as intended. The app installs fine, I'm able to go to my account settings and link an account fine but here's where I go wrong For example on mobile - once the app is installed - simply opening the main mobile nav menu causes you to instantly be logged out of the site. On desktop with the full desktop nav - trying to click on the "linked accounts" icon opens the modal for a split second, before it redirects to an error page for the app <board url>/linkedaccounts/accounts/ But this redirect only happens if you've linked an account. If no accounts are linked, clicking the icon opens the modal correctly. The "create" menu and the user menu both open and work, but the notification, PM and report center icons all end up instantly redirecting to the corresponding page for each feature instead of opening the modal. So whatever is causing the linked accounts icon to not properly open the modal without triggering a page navigation, is also affecting the other 3 icons i mentioned. No JS errors thrown. Running support tool and flushing the browser cache have no affect either.
  8. There's no iOS support because apple refuses to add support to iOS for native notifications. The only way to do it is with an iOS app. We have one for our own use, but it wouldn't be practical for most sites to maintain an iOS app (or pay a 3rd party for one) to get notifications working on iOS. You'd be talking something like $2500-5000 just for the apps, plus another $500 a year or so to keep them updated for new versions of iOS/Android. Hopefully some day apple will come around and get with every other device on the planet. Hell, even MacOS can support the notifications without an app, so it's not like apple doesn't know there's a need for this. I think they are just holding out because they make so much revenue from the app store that they want to force everyone to publish an app.
  9. The announcement improvements made last year are wonderful. They are so much more useful than in the past. A small extra feature can take them even further with very little code. With the current system, the user clicks on the title to open the announcement in a modal. That's great when the announcement body can contain all the info you need your members to see. But it would be even better if there was an optional "URL" field when creating an announcement. When the URL field is filled in, then the body field is left blank. Clicking on the title would take the user directly to the specified URL instead of opening the announcement modaL It's quite common that an announcement is introducing members to a new site feature or a promotion, or an event. So we end up creating an announcement that is mostly just a link to the page we really want them to see/visit. The extra click saved from not having to open the modal just to click the link in that modal would make announcements more user friendly with very minor code changes.
  10. I've added this to my site (supports Android plus every major desktop browser) It's been a huge engagement tool for us. The only reason I don't offer it in the market is I'd have to charge as much as an IPS license to justify the cost of maintaining and supporting it.
  11. @Mark I'm also curious about how you handled this scenario. We actually wrote our own mod that does almost exactly what you've announced in this topic (create a temp account as soon as they submit the post, and leave it un-approved until they confirm/complete registration). It worked as intended (increase registration and engagement - but we ran into issue with existing members posting while logged out, and ended up shutting off the mod until we could get back in and address a way to merge the "temp" account created with the new post to the pre-existing account the member already had (but wasn't logged into at the time they made the post). Once we started running it live, we ran into the issue of members existing accounts, and ended up turning it back off until we could address the issue. After that, life happens and we never got a chance to go back in and work out a solution for that situation. I'm crossing my fingers that you accounted for this in your system already?
  12. I was looking closer at the mod. Would it be possible to just make a copy of each reaction and have the copies have different point values, and enable in different forums Example Like +1 (standard "like" enabled everywhere but the off topic forums Like +0 ( a copy of "like", but worth zero points and only enabled in the off topic forums? Visually to the user they would look identical, but depending on the forum selected the +1 or +0 would be enabled. This might be a PIA to manage the ever evolving list of which forums each reputation type is enabled/disabled for, but if there's no other option..could that work?
  13. I've read through the download page, and also through this topic and I'm still not sure if this plugin can do what I'm looking for. My use case is rather simple, I need a way to make reactions in specific forums (off-topic for example)....so that no points are ever awarded in the selected "off-topic" forums. I don't want to disable reactions entirely in those forums (users love the getting their "likes")...but I don't want the "off-topic" reactions increasing member reputation scores, so this way the leader board would be based only on reputation given in forums that earn points. Is it possible with this add-on to have reputation enabled globally, but in selected forums have all reputation given worth 0 points while still allowing reputation points to be awarded in the regular "on topic" forums?
  14. Recently (about 2 months ago) finally upgraded to the 4.3 series (from 4.1). One of the most anticipated features for our site was clubs. Now that it's been live for 2 months and have been receiving feedback from members. I thought I'd share what I feel (from member feedback) is a major missing feature. 1) IPS markets clubs as a "micro-site" within your community. 2) Clubs are the forum answer to facebook groups Engagement is everything. We're fighting against massive social platforms, all screaming for users attention. Does it suck? sure...but that's the reality of a mobile web. You have a tiny screen that gives limited space to put info in front of users, and we live in a "push" generation. i.e. users consume the info put in front of them, they don't go seeking out that info. So if we're not putting the info in front of them, we're losing those eyeballs to other social engagements. With that being said...why when someone joins a club, are they not added to "follow" that club? When a member registers on a website, they expect to receive notifications for the website they just registered on. When someone joins a Facebook group, they are joining because they want to be notified of what that "group" is doing (events, discussions, etc.). If a member makes the conscious decision to "join" a club...isn't that clear indication that member wants to know what is going on in that club? For example - our clubs are very much location driven in our segment. When someone is joining a "local" club - that member wants, in-fact they expect that being a member means they will be notified about the activities of that club. But right now, a member must first "join"...once their join request is approved, they have to know to come back and "follow" that club in a total separate action. At the very least, this should be a setting similar to the "auto-follow topic on reply" setting. Where the board admin can set a default option, and members can change that setting in their notification settings. Another option would be to simply ask the member at the time they Join if they'd like to "follow" the club (but honestly, IMO..the simple fact that they are making a conscious decision to "join" the club in the first place is 99% confidence that member is telling you right then they want to know what is going on in that club. Looking through the list of members that have joined clubs, almost none of them have realized they have to follow the club. I've had numerous complaints in just 2 months from members not receiving notifications for a club they joined, the member never realizing that they had to "follow" the club in an entirely separate action. I can already see club owners on my site losing interest with clubs they've created because they are not getting engagement back from the members that joined. And the primary reason they aren't getting any engagement from club members, is the system doesn't notify those members of what is going on in the clubs they are a member of. Is it really reasonable to manually contact every member that joins any club and let them know they have to also "follow" the club they just joined or else they miss out on what is happening in the club?
