  1. Problem: Users are returning to older posts and adding YouTube videos that are against community standards/policies. This tactic is being used by spammers as well. Currently, you cannot search for, or filter search results by, posts with embedded youtube videos. there is not a current avenue to search for posts with YouTube embed videos in them. Embeds, images, and other media get removed from the search index. I've searched multiple ways for "youtube.com" and "youtu.be", but all I find are posts with LINKS to youtube pages/videos, not post with the videos embedded in them. Therefore, it's impossible to find these inappropriate and/or spam videos unless a member brings it to our attention. Solution: Provide a way in advanced search to include embedded media and/or filter search results to include/exclude posts with embedded Youtube videos. Even better: allow the ability to search for posts that ONLY contain embedded YouTube videos. Perhaps make this feature available only to admins and moderators (group permissions)? This would allow us to find and remove spam and inappropriate videos.
  2. Been using IPS on a dedicated server for 10 years now. Your responses are nothing short of insulting.
  3. It's absurd that the ONLY caching method Invision utilizes doesn't offer ANY support for it in any way whatsoever. Absolutely ludicris. There's absolutely no way for most people to use it. My host provider doesn't know how to install it, and therefore won't support it. I tried Redis support but they are 100% unresponsive (8 tickets submitted with zero responses). I even had a friend of mine who knows Apache try without luck. So, unless you're an experienced server admin, you're screwed. You simply cannot use Redis. Major, major flaw with Invision!
  4. Well, I see "Community Map" was installed separately from"Member Map". When I went into "Community Map" in the ACP, I was prompted to transfer all the markers from "Member Map" into "Communty Map", which I did. It ran the process, and then gave the same error again about not having a default value (the same one you said you fixed). I then went the public /communitymap/ URL and got this lovely error: Sorry, there is a problem Something went wrong. Please try again. Error code: EX1364 This error was probably caused by application Community Map. If the issue persists, disable it and contact the author for further assistance
  5. Just tried installing it again, and got this error: btw, I've been using this for years, so this is an upgrade.
  6. Just tried installing it on 4.5, and got the following error: So it failed. Thoughts?
  7. Unique, unidentifiable/untraceable email addresses PER FORUM. Sounds like a spammer's dream.
  8. For new members, I'd like to prohibit them from posting links until they have at least (variable number) posts. This will help discourage spammers. I thought IPS had that feature a few years ago, but it seems to have been dropped. Please bring it back. Yep, I'm fully aware of the other anti-spam features in IPS, and I use them. But there's nothing at all like this. Think of it as a "backstop" in case a spammer slips by the other features, which seems to be happening with increasing regularity, despite changing the QA response often.
  9. The article does a decent job of outlining what you should measure and why, it falls short of explaining how. First it says, "Invision Community ships with a powerful set of Statistics in the ACP that cover every application." followed by "The ACP won't have all of the fine-grained filtering or data reporting that you may need. " without explaining how to bridge that gap. Not too helpful there.
  10. Sooo, the powers-that-be decided to disable it without any way to turn it on without adding a 3rd party plug-in? How lame is that?
  11. Looks like I stumped the band. Nobody knows.
