  1. Have run the latest update and would like to thank you for fixing the floating bar announcement issue. 🙂 However, I am seeing that if I want to change the colour of the text in that bar using the Frontend Colors tab in theme settings, it doesn't work - just stays white. I need to make it black to stand out on the yellow colour I have chosen for the "warning" message background. Tried custom CSS and that isn't working either. .ipsMessage, .ipsAnnouncement { border-radius:var(--radius-1); position:relative; margin-bottom:var(--sp-3); color: #000; border:1px solid r
  2. I think that if we are going to be asking for money back it should be from IPS who have made the life of the webmaster using their system incredibly difficult in the move from 4.4 to 4.5. I have lost so many days to this "upgrade" and honestly, I just can't see anything that is so radically different between those two versions that justifies the move. I have 2 licenses and there is no way I will be moving the other one up to this 4.5 notch.
  3. I can report that something else is definitely going on, because that copy of the theme got completely screwed up when adding the code and nothing I could do would revert it back to where it was. I tried clearing Safari cache, I ran the support wizard and got that to clear cache too. When doing that there was a patch that IPS asked me to install because of something to do with CSS, which I duly did, but nothing will restore that copy of the theme back to where it was. As I said before - I am over this stuff. It is the very last time I take an IPS upgrade on good faith as being functional
  4. Seriously tired of this now. I can't understand how a move from 4.4 to 4.5 can cause webmasters so much unnecessary stress. I don't have time to constantly fix these stuff ups, man!
  5. @TAMAN that code has completely screwed up my theme. I removed it but it is still doing the same thing - completely messed up everything. I'm going to send you a PM now.
  6. Sticky nav bar is still having issues after the update. If you set it to "fixed to top" all message pop-ups and tooltips are appearing underneath it - see screen grab. Also the announcement that used to float on top of the navigation now sits on the top of the page. It sticks underneath the navigation when scrolled, but not sure I like this if it is supposed to do that.
  7. Found another glitch. When using the sticky menu the flash message appears underneath that.
  8. Aha! Thank you. I will check it out.
  9. Where is the "Stock Photos" button in my 4.5? Is this something you have to purchase?
  10. I have just noticed that the button to join a club (when shown to guests) is truncating with ellipses. Is this normal? It shouldn't be.
  11. OK, will send you link via PM shortly.
  12. I've found something else I am battling to figure out. On the User Nav I am seeing this strange connector. Is this something in the color settings of the theme?
  13. Thank you for the fix! Regarding the other issue, I can see now that this is happening on the default theme too, so must be an IPS bug.
  14. I do receive the newsletters (I avoid corporate social media as far as possible). Nothing I had read thus far indicated such dramatic under the hood changes to me. Bottom line for me right now is that I am stuck here on 4.5 and having to use a default theme that I personally think looks awful and I can't find an easy way to change it. Even my premium theme doesn't let me easily make the changes I was used to making. Just really disappointed in the design aesthetic and the fact that it's so hard to change now. I suggest that in future it might be advisable to split your commun
  15. I'm coming to this discussion from the viewpoint of a webmaster who is used to making minor tweaks in Custom CSS. I truly wasn't expecting the entire framework of the CSS to change from 4.4 to 4.5 to the point where I am now quite seriously contemplating alternative options as far as the platform I run my community on is concerned. Anyway, I don't want to argue. I have said what I want to say and I can only hope that IPS management will understand that not every customer of theirs is a develop or wants to be one. That's why we buy expensive software; to make our lives easier, not harder.
