  1. You can download any old version of an app from the marketplace. Just click on the "changelog" button next to "What's new in version ...", select the version you are looking for, and a "Download" link will appear for it below. (Not my business, but you might want to consider buying the full app, it is a pure diamond, and very cheap for all the features offered ;))
    Works perfectly, simple, bright and clear. Very useful for large communities with a lot of clubs and forums. Very, very, very useful to filter out from staff's streams the activity in clubs they don't belong to. Exactly what I needed! Thank you so much!
  2. Hi, is it still possible to have access to the new plugin for legacy customers? I bought this plugin a long time ago (soon after its first release) when it was a one-shot purchase, so, I don't know if I'm considered as having an "active licence". Thank you!
    Traductions franchement correctes et très complètes, bien sûr chacun peut avoir envie de personnaliser ici ou là, mais le gros du boulot est fait. Et tout ça mis à disposition gratuitement ! Il faudrait vraiment être ingrat pour trouver à y redire. Merci à Invision Board France pour cette mise à jour très attendue !
  3. Indeed, I was a little fast in relating our problems. Mine was solved super fast eventually. Sorry I can't help, subforums are found by search in my ACP. Good luck!
  4. My forums just all "disappeared" after modifying the order of two forums from the ACP. They are in the SQL database but totally invisible when browsing. After discovering that I went to the "Get Support" menu in the ACP and was offered to apply a patch for a "forum reordering bug" (I wish I saw it earlier...) Might be related to your problem I guess. I'm going to open a ticket right now. Let us keep in touch with our respective outcomes!

    Thanks for your offer, I'll send you an admin access with a temporary password by private message. Yes, I'm self-hosted! Thanks again.

    Ever used a Google Form for something related to your IPS community? Stop here, download this great app and forget about Google Forms forever! Forms by Devfuse/Mike John is a very useful, powerful and flexible app to integrate all kind of forms in your suite. The app is totally integrated and works smoothly with your member management, staff management, site look-and-feel, and more. It will allow you to do many things you will never be able to do with external solutions, in place, all in a single app. One month after purchase we already have 6 forms on the way, and counting. We are becoming addicts. Our community is a voluntary association with activities IRL & online. We use forms for registration of paid membership, registration to IRL events, joint purchases, template for classified ads... Our staff has a relatively high turn-over ; permissions through groups ensure everyone has the means to work any time and also protect and preserve data, without painful external links and passwords sharing and changing. Definite ++ : All sorts of actions can be automatically triggered when a form is sent: private message, email, topic creation in a forum, with customizable sender and receivers. Created content include dynamically the form fields content, in whatever formatting you would like. All actions work perfectly as described. A lot of form-by-form customizable possibilities (permissions, actions...) All types of form fields you could dream of, including uploads and rich text editor, with perfectly working toggle on/toggle off possibilities between fields (including perfect management of the "mandatory but toggled off" fields.) Definitely increases engagement of your users, who will feel being taken care of more personnally Reliable and trustworthy developer with longstanding history in IPS Marketplace, open to new feature suggestions, regular updates, good support. By the way, a lot of comments in old reviews here have been addressed inbetween. Robust, with very few (minor) bugs. Things you should be aware of before purchasing : Only users with admin privileges can create a form (from the ACP.) So, this part cannot be delegated to other members of your staff, except if you grant them admin permissions. However, all the rest (log management, follow-up of the requests...) can be! CSV export of form logs is perfectible. For now, the columns of the exported .csv file are all the fields of all the forms, which can become quite large and unpractical. If your data management relies heavily on a csv file or processing an excel-type sheet, you might be disappointed. However, with all the possibles actions and the online logs, it is likely that you won't even need them. For the moment, email automatic confirmation is sent by the creator's (admin) email address, with no possibility of customization. Beware if you don't want your email address to be disclosed. Due to its power and flexibility, the app has a relatively steep learning curve in the very beginning if you are not an experienced user, or familiar with other apps from Mike John. Documentation is somewhat limited and phrasing is not totally self-explaining sometimes. You might need a number of trials and errors before achieving your exact goal (you will in the end, and then, you'll create forms at speed light.) Overall: a must-have, totally worth the price!

    Forms Support

    Sorry to bump the topic, I finished exploring and testing the app and I have a couple more remarks & suggestions! First of all it's really a cool app, I'm very happy of my purchase, I'll let a positive review in the marketplace 🙂 Minor bugs: (Already mentioned) custom furl slug restored to default when editing an existing form Quick tag for a field value of type "number" displays nothing (instead of the digit 0) in mp/mail/topic when the field value is 0 Suggestions (things that would improve even more the app): Displaying avatars in logs Allowing to select which email address will be used to send the confirm mail, or set it to the {board_mail} by default (currently: sent by the {member_email} of the admin who created the form, and not editable) Editable content of the confirm mp/email from the form settings (currently only editable by translation in the Languages menu) Csv export form by form (not including all fields of all existing forms.) (More complicated, but would be really great, and I would be ready to pay for that) When a topic creation is selected to be triggered by the form, I would love to have the ability to add a button in the said forum, next to "Start new topic", and sending directly to the form instead of creating a new topic (something like "Start new topic with help"). Alternatively, it would be almost as nice to replace completely the action triggered by "New topic" (in order to force users to use the form to post a new topic in this particular forum.) (No idea if this is even doable, but would be nice also) Conditional content: content of the mp/mail/topic can be different depending on the field values. First level: don't show empty fields in the {field_list}. Second level: more customization of the content (if field_value_xx==yy write "this", else write "that"...)

    The slug is OK if set at creation, before the first "save", indeed. But it cannot be changed afterwards, when editing an already existing form. (Maybe just works as expected eventually? There could be some logic into not allowing to change the url of an existing form.)

    Forms Support

    Hi ! Thanks for this very useful and powerful plugin! I have trouble using the custom fURL slug. If I change it and save, it is not taken into account, and the default url (full name of the form) is back as soon as I reload the configuration page. Am I missing something or is there a bug? Thank you for your answer.
    💕Just awesome! 💕 Very complete chat app for your community: easy to configure (although it has a large number of features and customization options) very stable (even what's announced as "in beta testing") - no bug or crash in 1 month of intense usage floating popup: all your public and private conversations follow you when you're browsing the site 1-to-1 floating chat: users love it!! club chats are a great working tool for communities which use clubs the online list makes everyone more trustful and comfortable to chat in rooms works as fine on mobile devices and desktop very reasonable price! I have been a happy user of the Chatbox Free for two years, which is a already a very good app (especially considering it is free). At the time, I discussed a couple features I wished could be added but the (nice and reactive) developer had no plan to invest worktime on it, which is totally legit. I'm glad he changed his mind! This new version has 99% of the features I dreamt of, for a very competitive price. It would be nice if club chats could be added in the "rooms" tab of the global (popup) chat, and/or if the floating popup could stay even when on a full page chatroom (but I understand there are technical difficulties for this one.) Very minor flaw compared to all it brings! Don't wait to add this great app to your community, it is 200% worth the price! And many thanks to @onlyME for his great job!
  10. Hi, I'd like to use the "Record Feed" widget on a page of my site, but with records from multiple databases. I have several Pages database, let's say database A with categories A1 and A2 and database B with categories B1, B2 and B3. I'd like to have a widget block showing the latest entries of only some categories of several databases, like for instance the latest entries of a A1+B2+B3. For forums, the Topic Feed widget allows to do that by freely selecting which (sub)forums will be taken into account. As far as I could observe, the default Record Feed widget does not allow for a similar mixed content. Are you aware of documented ways to have the same functionality for databases feeds? I could not find anything neither in the marketplace (I'd be happy to pay for a plugin) nor on the forum here or in the dev resources, but maybe I missed some related topics. I guess coding a Custom Block from scratch would be a solution, but I'd prefer avoiding too much code - I'm not a seasoned developer, although I'm not a complete noob and I'm ready to learn, I would need some kickstarting help. So, any pointer to useful resources to attack the problem will be very much welcome and appreciated. Many thanks for your help!
  11. I get some of these also, even on the default template. When I display the screenshot of the crawled page it appears that the loading of the template failed, resulting in poor display (content larger than screen, clickable elements too close together etc.) If I ask the google console to "live test", most of the times the error disappears. Are you self-hosted? In my case, my guess is that I get a lot of these because of my hosting provider limitations.
  12. Hi, I have a pre-sales question (sorry if it isn't the right place.) I have several Pages databases, each of them with several categories. Let's say database A with categories A1 and A2 and database B with categories B1, B2 and B3. Can I set up a single SuperBlock to include only some categories of several databases, like the latest entries of a A1+B2+B3, for instance? Thank you for your answer! Edit. Nevermind, I figured it out by myself. Since SuperBlocks is a set of templates for existing blocks, I understand this is an IPS related question, not a question related to your product. Great product anyway!
  13. Thanks for the Chrome console trick! It invalidates the browser cache hypothesis indeed. But anyway you are right, even if the quick-and-dirty route was seducing, a proper plugin will be safer.
  14. Hi, I am trying to use a piece of javascript to insert dynamically a button in the CKEditor toolbar. (Based on the Chevereto popup upload plugin.) After adding the html code in the global template before the </head> and refreshing all caches, when I go back to the front site, the button does appear at the first loading of the editor. However, it is not added on any other page loaded after that (at least for some time. Long inactivity acts as a kind of reset.) This made me suspect some cache issues. I did a couple of trials : the place of the script (before </head> or before </body>), the place of the includeJS as well (I noticed it changed in a recent version), and the browser/device, seem to make the behaviour kind of fluctuate. But as my trials may interfere with different levels of cache, it is pretty difficult to diagnose. All in all, I never managed to have the button stay. My guess is that some caching of CKEditor (possibly browser caching) prevents my script to "intercept" the editor toolbar, the editor being served from a cache instead of my site. I tried to play around with the cache buster key thing without success. I did all the basic sanity checks (turning off all other customizations & so) but it does not solve the issue. Only complete cache refresh +/- patience brings it back. I also investigated other solutions based on CKE plugins / custom buttons from the ACP, but these do not fit my needs. So, my questions are: 1) How can I totally prevent browser caching of the CKEditor, and not only on IPS-managed cachebust key refresh -- at least in order to test my hypothesis? 2) If it solves the problem: are there other workarounds, to avoid the loss of performance induced by never caching the CKEditor? 3) If not, are there other known causes for this problem and can they be circumvented? Many thanks for your help!
  15. I have exactly the same problem! I don't use emojis (my database is not yet converted to utf8mb4), I only have various categories of custom emojis. I checked the emo_set_position column in core_emoticons table of my database, and the values are totally in line with the category order as displayed in the ACP. However on the site (when loading emoticons from the selector list in editor), it is all randomly messed up. I'll let you know if I find a workaround.
  16. Thanks for your answer Jaymez. My code essentially looks like: <div class="ipsBox"> <h3 class="ipsType_reset ipsWidget_title"> .: ADH&Eacute;SION :. </h3> <div class="ipsWidget_inner ipsPad"> <p> (some text) </p> </div> </div> Your solution would probably work with a -5px negative margin, wouldn't it? however I'd prefer to manage this at a more systematic level, to avoid editing all blocks one by one.
    Extremely useful app to encourage your new members to feel welcome and engage rapidly in your community. It really makes a difference! We were "deprived" from this app after IPS4 upgrade, due to some technical trouble on our side, although we used it for years on the previous version, and we really missed it. Mike was really helpful and patient to assist in troubleshooting (100% my fault, the app is working perfectly with a clean IPS 4.2.6 install). Nice possibilities of customizations, easy to use. Top app and top contributor!
  17. Hi Mike! In the end it had nothing to do with the PHP/MySQL version. But I wanted to let you know that I finally solved the problem! I feel reaaaaally stupid and just don't know how I could miss that, but there were, indeed, old entries prefixed by aw_ in the sys_conf_settings tables. Probably inherited from an previous version (our database has a long and troubled history). I had checked 10 times yet but... had simply missed the "next page" button in phpmyadmin... and finally had an epiphany by accessing the tables through the ACP instead of phpmyadmin (a fresh look on things!) These entries were probably locked (considered as belonging to another app?), and were then preventing the new version of the app to write its information properly. I manually deleted all these entries before re-installing the app, and everything works perfectly now. Many, many thanks again for your help, patience, and your great app
  18. Update about trials: the problem is solved by adding this code in the custom CSS .ipsWidget_inner.ipsPad.ipsType_richText { padding: 0px !important; background: transparent; border: none; } However, I'm not 100% confident that this doesn't impact negatively the look and feel of other elements (I'm pretty sure it does :/)
  19. Hi, I recently upgraded my community from 4.2.5 to 4.2.6 and this upgrade apparently brought a template change in sidebars (I understood that this was done for better advertisements management.) My sidebars do not include any ads, but do include custom blocks which I created from the Pages app, and added in the pages by using the "easy" block manager editor. The code of my custom block simply starts with an ipsBox wrapper and an <h3> title, which previously was as large as the whole sidebar. Now, they are wrapped in an additional ipsBox and ipsPad which creates a white padding around my custom block. I can edit my custom block code to remove the ipsBox I added myself, but this doesn't remove the ipsPad white margin. The block title then doesn't span the whole width, and isn't visually coherent with how h3 titles show in the main area (such as announcements, forum titles...) Below, a screenshot of the appearance before and after the upgrade (the custom block code is strictly the same.) I tried editing manual the widgetContainer template but I couldn't find any trace of this added ipsPad (which I identified with Chrome code inspector - removing it from there locally works perfectly.) My feeling is that it is now included in the $widgetHtml variable, which is generated by a call to some IPS::Output class function. Shouldn't there be a proper mean (through templates or CSS) to remove this ipsPad, without editing IPS core functions (I'm very reluctant to do so!). Any idea about how removing this bothering ipsPad around custom blocks by satisfying means? Many thanks for your help!
  20. Was skin tone the actual priority to improve emoji management? I don't say it's not cool (it is), but I hope it comes with deeper improvements, on the ACP side especially! ^^ I really love 4.2 and am excited to see the new features, but really, ACP emoji panel is a pet peeve.
  21. Thanks again for your answers and your time, I tried that, no change. I also checked on my test install coming back to Forums as default app and I can confirm to you that it's unrelated. While trying to investigate it came to my mind that I'm not running yet the recommended versions of PHP and SQL (PHP version 5.6.30-0+deb8u1, MySQL version 5.5.55-0+deb8u1-log, utf8mb4 is not enabled). I planned to upgrade anyway, so, I think it's the right time to try; I'll let you know if it brings any changes before you lose more time on my problem. Many, many thanks again for your patience
