  1. Thanks! I missed that somehow. Interestingly I can find most settings by searching but when I search for “truncate” nothing comes up.
  2. How do you set email notifications to be truncated vs. not truncated? I can't find an option for that anywhere in the AdminCP I'm actually having the opposite problem... i just updated to 4.5 and my notifications are truncated now whereas they were not before.
  3. I would like to see more filters available when sending bulk emails to members. Specifically, I would like the ability to filter by custom profile fields. I have a profile field for country, and another for interests. Both of those are incredibly useful for segmentation. There could be workarounds... for example you can filter by secondary group. If I could search by profile field and bulk add found members to a secondary group, I could then bulk email them. However, there is no bulk add to secondary group option... only a bulk move option, which changes their primary group. In the end, I export my list and use MailChimp. But i'd rather do it in house, and the functionality is all there... just need to add those profile fields to the bulk email filters options.
  4. Can someone please tell me how to add a custom database field to a feed block? I have a home page with a block showing records from my "Articles" database, which includes a field named "teaser". I remember this was pretty easy with IP. Content, but with Pages I can't figure it out. Here is what I've tried so far: I created a new block using Pages > Page Management > Blocks > Create New Block. In the Create New Block dialog I selected Type: Plugin and I tried both "Record Feed" and "Feed from Articles" for the Plugin Type. Then under the Content tab I selected Template: "Default template" and "Use as a base for a custom template". That get's me the following code. I'm placing my block in one column of a 3-column layout, so it uses the first bit of code ($orienation == 'vertical'). I see the foreach bit, so I assume I can access record fields using something starting with $record, but for the life of me I can't figure out what! For my "teaser" field I tried $record->teaser, $record->field_141, $record['teaser'], $record->customFieldDisplayByKey('teaser'). None of these seem to work in a block template, I assume they work only in page templates. So if anyone could help I'd really appreciate it. {{if !empty( $records ) }} <h3 class='ipsWidget_title ipsType_reset'>{$title}</h3> {{if $orientation == 'vertical'}} <div class='ipsPad_half ipsWidget_inner'> <ul class='ipsDataList ipsDataList_reducedSpacing ipsContained_container'> {{foreach $records as $record}} <li class='ipsDataItem'> <div class='ipsDataItem_icon ipsPos_top'> {template="userPhoto" group="global" app="core" params="$record->author(), 'tiny'"} </div> <div class='ipsDataItem_main cWidgetComments'> <div class="ipsCommentCount ipsPos_right {{if ( $record->record_comments ) === 0}}ipsFaded{{endif}}" data-ipsTooltip title='{lang="num_replies" pluralize="$record->record_comments"}'>{expression="$record->record_comments"}</div> <div class='ipsType_break ipsContained'> <a href="{$record->url()->setQueryString( 'do', 'getLastComment' )}" title='{lang="view_this_cmsrecord" sprintf="\IPS\Member::loggedIn()->language()->addToStack( 'content_db_lang_sl_' . $record::$customDatabaseId, FALSE ), $record->_title"}' class='ipsDataItem_title'>{$record->_title}</a> </div> <p class='ipsType_reset ipsType_medium ipsType_blendLinks'> <span>{lang="byline_nodate" htmlsprintf="$record->author()->link()"}</span><br> <span class="ipsType_light">{datetime="$record->mapped('date')"}</span> </p> </div> </li> {{endforeach}} </ul> </div> {{else}} <div class='ipsWidget_inner'> <ul class='ipsDataList ipsContained_container'> {template="recordRow" group="listing" location="database" app="cms" themeClass="IPS\cms\Theme" params="null, null, $records"} </ul> </div> {{endif}} {{endif}} BTW, I have searched every way I know how on these forums for an answer, and gone through the Help Guides several time, with no luck.
  5. And i just submitted my own ticket.
  6. I'm having the same problem with my version 3.4
  7. Holy crap Kevin, this IP Rules application is going to totally transform my site. I can't wait to upgrade to version 4 now.
  8. ​No you are not crazy. I would like to see the same thing.
  9. 8) It's nice to move the user's content to the profile page, but it still LOOKS like the same search engine-type results. In order to see the user's content you have to click each category on the left one at a time. I'd like to see a combined results page. If that's not possible, what about putting a little icon next to each content type with the number of items of that type the user has submitted. That way, you wouldn't waste your time clicking on categories of content that don't have any results.
  10. Fantastic! It would be great if there was a button to allow you to revert a string back to its original non-translated version. How easy will it be to give individual members permission to translate for us? Will we be able to limit their permission to a particular language?
  11. If you don't upload new screenshots, will it keep the old ones? If you do upload new screenshots, will it let you keep or replace the old ones? Or is it possible to have different sets of screenshots for different versions?
  12. Fantastic improvements. I really like the new look so far. I couldn't agree more.
  13. I like it! Now if only members could do the same thing with the site home page (or a "My Home Page", e.g.) that would be awesome!
  14. Thanks, i missed that. I do like Marc_S's suggestion.
  15. Oooh, I really hope the sidebar blocks can be customized per forum (or category, in other parts of the site). This would be a perfect way to link content from various parts of my site. For example, in my forum for discussing upcoming conferences, I could have a feed block from my custom conferences database showing the upcoming conferences, or a block with links to external websites for those conferences. Likewise, in my conferences database, I could have a feed block showing all recent forum topics from my conference discussions forum.
