  1. I had a user note that they had spent a good deal of part of a day working on a post before submitting, and discovered that after submitting they were unable to take advantage of the 60 minute edit window we provide. They “tested” and seem to suggest that perhaps the window is being calculated from when the post draft is first started, and not when posted. I can’t seem to reproduce, but wanted to check with the community here to see if anyone has more specific technical knowledge of how the edit time is calculated and what triggers it.
  2. Latest version of IPS? I haven’t personally benchmarked, but I’m going off what most the trusted PHP experts (and the PHP development team) have said about 8. Expect performance gains from JIT in certain specific calculation tasks and long running php apps. Most web apps (which aren’t either of those things) aren’t not expected to specifically benefit from the initial release of 8. If IPS is seeing a x2 performance gain, I would be shocked and that goes against everything written about the purpose and expectations for 8, but would obviously be a welcome surprise.
  3. PHP 8 is not faster than PHP 7.4 for the vast majority of web applications. There are many great new features and language improvements, but speed improvements for web apps was not the focus of PHP 8. There will be limited reasons for IPS to officially support PHP 8 until it's baked a few versions, minimum.
  4. Yeah sorry! Horrible reply on my part. @Ryan Ashbrook covered one of the big issues I had which was that ckeditor would randomly fail to load or would load improperly so certain functions were disabled. I don’t know how to characterize it other than very weird and annoying bugs that didn’t happen every time so were hard to replicate, but always related to JavaScript. There were also times the entire site would just stop loading about halfway through initial paint so you were left with broken stylesheets etc. As soon as rocket loader was disabled, all of that went away
  5. Cloudflare Rocket Loader usually breaks IPS, as a heads up.
  6. Going to be an issue if iOS9 is the latest the device supports. Your users are on nearly decade old hardware at this point
  7. Thanks for the update! Looks great.
  8. The comment Matt made was in reference to push via web, which isn't supported in iOS without using native apps. They now have a native app.
  9. It’s easy, but man, I would never recommend to anyone who values their time and having a secure server to run their own mailserver. It is not low maintenance.
  10. I love this feature. Agree with @Paul E. above that forcing OP to be anon would be helpful. An alternative would be to ensure that moderators can go the other direction as well, i.e. in addition to revealing who the OP was and de-anonymizing, it would be great if there was a setting for mods to edit a post and change to anonymous. We often have members who join to post a question that can sometimes reveal highly personal info and it’s fine when they think it’s a one off question, then they decide to stay (because our community is so great) and become a long time member. That usually prompts a
  11. What’s the need for plug-in toggles or specific settings for when to enable/disable? Shouldn't this be as simple as the ACP specifying the default dark theme and then just relying on @media prefers-color-scheme? If no dark theme set as default, nothing happens? I’m not exactly in the running for developer of the year but even to me this seems like a pretty easy solution that utilizes OS features re night/dark mode and not have to reinvent the wheel in Invision.
  12. Could open source this with a git repository that anyone inclined to assist could contribute to. I have none of the skills required to do anything technical and all I can do is cheerlead. Frankly I also like the default skin save for some decisions about how big text and other elements are on mobile/tablet which is why I run at 75% zoom on mobile, so not a huge vested interest either. But clearly there are a lot of people who want a default skin that is far more flexible for their needs, and there is absolutely the talent here to help. Doesn’t seem like a candidate for a paid exercise, but som
  13. I don’t pay IPS nearly enough for what I get from this software and the support. I suspect self hosting is not exactly a profit centre, per say!
  14. That’s right - I think you also had directed me how to use the media query or viewport check or whatever to ensure this was only applicable if it was a phone size device, as I was trying to do it by targeting the responsive classes which was the wrong approach.
  15. Hey @Rikki - you had provided me the css to insert into custom.css to achieve this. Unfortunately, I had asked this on the invisionalpha site and I neglectfully didn’t copy your answer to somewhere safe in case I ever lost it. I reset my custom.css in anticipation of 4.5 upgrade, and have subsequently lost it. When you have time, obviously not urgent, any chance if you still have access to that board you could repost here, or alternatively if you know this off the top of your head you could retype it here? Thanks!
  16. Thanks @christopher-w. I've much appreciated your input here over the last few years so would love to see what you've cooked up. Will watch for that post!
  17. If you ever want to share any of this back (appreciating for strategic reasons you may not want to) it would be welcomed by many. Love seeing the small adjustments others make.
  18. This means they are on an OG iPad, ipad2, iPad 3rd gen, or iPad mini 1. Basically, hardware released at latest in 2012 (and possibly earlier) where Apple only supports up to iOS 9. iOS 9 has been out of security support for a few years now This also means the hardware is at least 8 years old. That’s a long time for mobile/tablet device compatibility, especially given how much changed over the last decade. Can’t support everything forever. For the software to improve, it’s gotta look ahead. I’m sympathetic given how expensive it is to update what otherwise “works”, but also selfishl
  19. This thread is a good reminder of the diversity of users. I haven’t thought about post numbers in decades. Would never have thought some people are so passionate about this topic. Certainly a curiosity to me as to why people are so hung up on them, but that’s what makes this community interesting!
  20. There is no legitimate reason anyone or any organization should be using IE. If you have users stuck on it, that sucks, but it’s akin to having users tell you they unfortunately are stuck on 14.4k dialup and find the site loads too slowly. IE is dead. Let it Rest In Peace.
  21. Oh never mind you were just using what he was trying. Either way...
  22. +100 for testing with a great album
  23. My mods have asked if it is possible to have a line of text added above or below the submit post / submit topic button to remind users of the amount of time they have to edit a post before it is no longer editable or removable and a general warning about posting personally identifiable information. We are getting a lot of new users who expect us to operate like Reddit with an ability to delete content at any time. Without getting into the rationale, our community doesn’t operate that way (and we’re not bound by any of the regulations that would require us to make that an option). Is this
  24. To piggyback, the one quality of life improvement I would like to see if the “trust computer for 30 days” option that has become somewhat standard.
  25. Click the time of post. Similar to twitter etc. in that regard.
