  1. Yes but not for the limit; IPS does it out of the box from 4.5 onwards. The limit seems to be around 150 characters without counting spaces. That's the only thing, I doubt you can adjust the limit, as for the rest it works pretty much in the same manner.
  2. I've just realised that adverts on my site are not expiring as supposed to happen according to the package's settings. For example, this package is set up this way: However, when you look at the Commerce part of it, this is what it looks like for any ads: This problem started recently with my upgrade to IPS 4.5 and the latest Classified version. It was working fine on 4.4. No expiry date, no renewal price.
  3. That's great to know. Thanks Matt.
  4. I know I'm repeating myself here, but partly due to the uncertainty of how 4.6 works, and partly because not knowing if those wishing for the custom title to remain would be happy with having to hover over the new icons. So, this is basically a question. I would be okay with users having to hover over the new rank icons to see the titles, would that be okay for others? And if so, why IPS has to remove something that shouldn't alter their 4.6 design? As it is up to 4.5 inclusive, you set one criterion (namely post count but in 4.6 could be others) and give certain members the ability to change a default title that you have there anyway (some change it and others leave it as is). Why can't it be the same in 4.6? (Assuming it works within the whole new ranks system as planned)
  5. I think it's a shame, particularly because such a thing could very well be compatible with the new system, even if you had to hover over the new badges to see the title.
  6. I agree. On my site for example the only perk "ranks" give you is the ability to edit your title after x posts, which without doubt users prefer to any "achievement" I could determine for them (unless it was cash or something like that).
  7. Glad to know. That's exactly how I have the fonts set on my site for the same reasons you mentioned.
  8. @Marcel Iseli you can try this. Add this in your theme's custom.css file /** * Font size for mobile */ @media screen and (max-width: 767px){ .ipsType_normal { font-size: 16px; } .ipsDataItem_title { font-size: 16px; } .ipsType_medium { font-size: 16px; } .ipsStreamItem_title { font-size: 18px; } .ipsStreamItem_titleSmall { font-size: 16px; } .cWidgetPrice { font-size: 11px; } } You can play with the sizes but I wouldn't recommend going larger than that.
  9. Well, I updated my forum to but I did not update this app, and the one that was already installed for 4.4 keeps working without problem.
  10. Great, thanks DawPI. I'll update it when it becomes available.
  11. Thank you guys, I got the paid version as the effort deserves it. Now, off to configure it. 👍
  12. So, anybody has come up with a plugin to warn outdated browsers by any chance? I know it's a big problem with Internet Explorer, but if you have the Safari version for Yosemite (which I have on one computer I don't want to upgrade, so I still have access to Final Cut Pro 7), it also will present problems to a lesser degree (Reactions showing a big grey dot instead). And I imagine that like that, many different older browsers will present problems. I've upgraded my forum to 4.5 a day ago, and it would be nice to have a good way to ask members to update or switch their browsers.
  13. Thanks for that. Yes, it's odd, but you gave me an idea, and that's selecting at least one subforum. In that case, it works correctly. The problem is when I don't have Forums selected at all as an app to be used with this plugin. I will test it a bit further tomorrow, but for the time being I'll use that workaround. I can select a forum where I never upload photos, so that leaves the rest of the forum without the watermark, which is what I want.
  14. Hi @DawPi, I've installed the latest version of this plugin, and even when I don't have "Forums" selected, it ads the watermark to the forum posts anyway. I tried deselecting all forums too (apart from not having the Forums option enabled) but still the same, it ads the watermark anyway. I've only been using this plugin for Pages and Classifieds without problem until now. Cheers.
  15. Over 2500 by now to be exact. :) Well, it's review forum (reviews of certain services), set up well before IPS released their own reviews, so it works with a third party app. So, once a service provider receives an x number of reviews gets their own folder (subforum) with contact details, etc. If they advertise on our site, those reviews are accessible to everyone, even guests. For the rest of reviews, they can be accessed by paying a cheap subscription (or posting x number of reviews over a period of time). On one hand I admit that the idea is crazy from a logistical point of view and I know it puzzles IPS tech support every time they need to deal with an issue. On the other hand it has contributed to the commercial success of the site, and its survival as well. So, one day I may restructure and simplify the whole thing, but it's easier said than done. From the admin practical side of things, IPB 3's interface was much more helpful to deal with that amount of subforums. From a performance pov though, IPS 4 has been much better, light years better. In reality my site is not too different to this one when it comes to speed these days. The only problem was introduced by 4.4, as any forum created or edited after that upgrade can't be found using the Ajax search in the ACP. They can be found any other ways though. As I'm not creating/editing forums everyday, it's just a small annoyance. Not sure if IPS hardcoded a limit from 4.4 onwards, but as I said I get around the problem. But you don't need to have 1000s of subforums, imagine you have 80 or so, then including rather than excluding becomes a pain too. While for whoever has just from 6 to 8 subforums for example, including or excluding becomes practically the same. So, that's why I think that excluding is much better than including as a default. That third party app I screenshot above (which is not for streams but for something else) has the capability of switching between including or excluding, so it gives you the best of both worlds. But if only one is possible for IPS, I repeat that excluding would be much more helpful in general terms.
  16. I found this suggestions area. I'm not sure if existed before but I've just noticed it. I simply quote myself from a previous thread, as I've been requesting these things since the beginning of IPS 4. To the above, I add the request of tickable boxes (or any way to select multiple topics) to move them at once following a search. At present you can't move topics delivered by a search. You need to open the topic and move it. Last, it would be very handy to have Pages (and other apps) widgets that show items in a random order (I understand this is possible but at present it takes a big toll on performance, or so I've been told). Let's say you have a directory, and nobody would want to pay for being at the bottom of the list all the time if his/her name starts with "Z". The first three things I suggest above were present in IPB 3 but despite some talks on the forums, they've never been reintegrated. Cheers.
  17. Has anyone got this app working on 4.5? I'm ready to upgrade from 4.4 but this app remains my only doubt as I have read comments from people experiencing problems. It works fine for me on 4.4 but I'd need it to keep working on 4.5. I only have it installed on my live site, not on my dev one so I can't test it before upgrading. So, does anyone know? @OctoDev?
  18. Maybe not exactly on topic, but today I noticed that I have become a "newbie" (And not just me, even some IPS staff too) :) Not that I care, but I find it a bit odd. I've been a member since 2010 and have near 700 posts. I'm certainly not here everyday, and only post when I need to ask something or when I bump across a question I can answer. But "newbie" doesn't seem to capture the situation very accurately.
  19. Okay, thanks. It would be good if there was one. Maybe if @Fosters has stopped developing this app, there's still room to release a plugin to add functionality to IPS own function.
  20. Thanks, good to know. Do you know the default limit? It doesn't seem to have a way of controlling this (or I haven't found it yet).

    Any plans in the future for adding subcategories? With them it may help to reduce the number of forums and subforums that some of us have. Just thinking aloud though. 😊
  22. On a bit of an unrelated note, using 4.4 and PHP 7.3 gives me a Error code: 1S160/2 when I click on the groups permissions. Reverting PHP to 7.2 works fine. (Before I confuse anyone, I'm talking of the padlocks in the Member Groups area only).
  23. By the way, just for the benefit of anyone using this plugin and also reading this topic. Do not uninstall, because you will lose the descriptions. I guess it's just waiting until the author is able to help. Cheers.
  24. Not sure if you are asking me as well. I'm still using an older version (1.0.1) of the plugin that still works with 4.4 at least (I don't know about 4.5). It was pretty simple back then and doesn't include some features like Clubs compatibility, but since I don't use Clubs, it's not a problem for me. This is the way it worked before the selection option was moved to each individual forum. You just edited it from the plugins page and could tick all forums. I understand Alexxis' problem because I have heaps of forums and it would be impractical to select one by one. Now, it looks like his version is throwing an error on top of that.
  25. That's the reason why I'm still running version 1.0.1 on 4.4. I have some faint optimism that maybe even works on 4.5 (for when I upgrade), but maybe not and in that case me too will need to think of a MySQL query. It's a pity this aspect changed after version 1.0.1 of the plugin.
