  1. Chatbox disconnecting

    No, the same happened to me with the IPS theme. Since this is on a test site yet I haven't wanted to bother the author at this stage.
  2. Kitchen Sink

    A great feature would be for stream forums selection (for admins) to be able to exclude rather than include. Those of us with heaps of subforums find the default solution extremely cumbersome. In fact IPS should provide the alternative, but until and if they do it, that's an idea.
  3. Apart from several and diverse individual needs to do this people may have, it occurs to me that this shortcoming is also holding Pages from achieving its best potential. I really need this badly for a third app I have on the forums; however, I run IPB for my forums, blogs, etc (still 3.4 and waiting on this precisely so I can upgrade), then I run a directory on Joomla (using SobiPro), and a splash page on Wordpress matching the look of the Joomla one, but giving me a bit more flexibility for SEO purposes. (Maybe a bit overkill when my forums subdomain cannibalize any SEO attempts as it is the most popular one, but never mind that) My wish is not having to run a website that consists of 3 completely different pieces of software any longer, and I'd be happy happy to do the whole lot with IPS (and maybe move all just to the top domain). However, while I'm sure that you must be able to build a directory using Pages (or maybe Pages and other apps too), you cannot have a directory where users can search by attributes if you cannot search custom fields (yes, you have tags, but I think it's not quite the same). So, I really hope this functionality is back with IPS 4.3.
  4. Approve Followers?

    Cool, please take that as a suggestion then. Another one I thought just by looking at the screen captures, is a little one regarding language. Instead of "Add As Friend" to use "Follow User" or simply "Follow".
  5. Approve Followers?

    Great work, Dawpi. Just a question, can the user select whether approval in general is needed or not to follow him/her? I ask because while I imagine many wanting to approve all followers requests, others may not want to be bothered and let everyone follow them instead. Either way, the day I upgrade to 4.x I'll get this.
  6. [EN34] Ajax Thanks

    It works fine for me and I'm using Cloudflare. Have you tested it in Development Mode? I'm on a free plan so I don't use Railgun, Mirage nor Rocket Loader for that matter (as it always causes problems). I don't use the new Argo either.
  7. Chat closes - how many of you have found a solution?

    I first installed Blab! and while the support was great and I was happy with it, many users saw it as something from decades ago. So, I went with Arrowchat which has the same look everything has today, but that aside, also hoping that the push server would be a big bonus. To be honest I don't know if it makes a difference at all. At peak time it becomes a bit of a burden. With IP.Chat at least whoever was in chat at peak time didn't have to suffer the sluggishness of the forum, they really were on a different server, but the AC push server doesn't seem to work in the same way.
  8. [EN34] Ajax Thanks

    It would be great if someone did. Or at least find a way to transform all thanks into IPS native Likes/Thanks.
  9. Chat closes - how many of you have found a solution?

    Thank you very much, fantastic effort. I guess that's a big point for Blab! I reckon I'll go with it to start with and only if I see any system's struggles I'll change to Arrowchat or something else. I'm yet to upgrade to IPS 4, so the day that happens I may look into other alternatives too. Thanks again, much appreciated.
  10. Chat closes - how many of you have found a solution?

    Hmm, in second thoughts I wonder if the result would be the same by disallowing groups. Basically many members on my site have a primary and secondary group. So, imagine I'd like to create a room for users who share a secondary group only. If so, I'll have to disallow the primary groups and maybe this prevents a user from accessing even if he/she has the right secondary group.
  11. Chat closes - how many of you have found a solution?

    Okay, I see. Thank you very much for your help, much appreciated.
  12. Chat closes - how many of you have found a solution?

    Great, and if you don't mind checking if it's possible with AC that would be fantastic.
  13. Chat closes - how many of you have found a solution?

    Cool, it's so I can create a room for particular usergroups.
  14. Chat closes - how many of you have found a solution?

    Thanks it's just one thing that may make me go for Arrowchat. I hope you don't mind another question since you use both Blab! and Arrowchat. I have seen their demos but obviously those are not integrated with IPS. Both are meant to recognise the user groups when integrated. Do you know if they recognise secondary groups among the whole lot of them?
  15. Chat closes - how many of you have found a solution?

    @TheSonic do you know if Blab! has any way of indicating how many people are in chat before actually accessing it? If not, do your users miss such an indication? As it is until now with IP.Chat on my site, they do see a number on the Chat link itself, and who's in chat at the bottom of the forum index.
