    Morgin reacted to Woodsman in Upgrade from IP. 3.4.x to IPS4.0 (updated)   
    @Morgin and @Jordan Invision believe it or not people are still using this topic to setup home test sites. A few of these unfortunately, are looking for a quicker response and are still driving me nuts via email.

    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.

    Morgin reacted to CoffeeCake in Smudgy logo   
    Cloudflare Polish is activated for your site, and your logo is being served from Cloudflare's cache. Your image is being converted into a webp file for those browsers that support webp, and the original format you used was a JPEG image. JPEG is really only good for things like photographs and is rarely an appropriate format for something like a logo. You'd want to use a transparent PNG file or similar until something svg or webp is supported natively by IPS.
    You have some options. You can turn off the Polish feature entirely on Cloudflare or use a page rule to make an exception for your logo. You will need to clear the cache for your image from Cloudflare though to see any changes. Documentation: https://support.cloudflare.com/hc/en-us/articles/360000607372-Using-Cloudflare-Polish-to-compress-images
    See the headers associated with your logo image, as served from carnity.com:
    cf-bgj: imgq:100,h2pri cf-cache-status: HIT cf-polished: origFmt=jpeg, origSize=13060 content-disposition: inline; filename="1802184490_Carnitylogoapr2021.webp" content-length: 9220 content-type: image/webp

    Morgin got a reaction from Ryan Ashbrook in Back to Top button   
    The only reason I would say this is redundant is that both iOS and Android have built in capability to do a quick scroll to top. In iOS it’s universally just tapping the top of the screen. Android has a few different implementations but you can set it up with a gesture in any event. I understand that a button is super easy, but in this case it does seem like replication of native OS behavior.

    Morgin got a reaction from OptimusBain in Support PHP 8.0?   
    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.

    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

    Morgin reacted to Nathan Explosion in Edit time: when is it calculated from?   
    A suggestion..I recently wasted 30 minutes of my time looking into a similar issue on my site. Couldn't reproduce.
    The report from the user was 'The site doesn't allow me to edit the post' - the actual issue was 'i don't know where the edit option is'

    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.

    Morgin reacted to Makoto in We need webp NOW   
    That's great for you, but to quote your own words, what works for you doesn't necessarily work for others. It doesn't matter what works for you. If this ever got an official implementation, this is the way it would work without any debate. Period.
    Sure, in that case just adding webp as a supported image format for manual upload would be all you need/want? Then you can manually compress and upload images however you want. That's fine. I support that.
    You're welcome.

    Morgin got a reaction from Interferon in So much empty space...   
    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 something the community will need to figure out on its own. Ultimately, maybe providing a working framework that can be compared to what Invision provides and makes the case for certain changes. Would love to see that sort of collaboration. Can also happily assist with any grunt work lower skilled tasks if they are needed.

    Come on guys, Invision is never going to please us all. And even if they adopted granular ACP theme adjustment tools same as Xenforo has, we'd still need to sit back and adjust dozens and dozens of margin, padding, line height and similar parameters to suit all of our individual tastes. And then you have the menu, which in my view should be docked in an object that can be bound to the DOM either on the server or in a CSOM. But, even if Invision did that, we'd still need to position it ourselves, and move it around depending on the app currently in use. So I say, be careful what you wish for as even though I'd like to see pages that are rendered a little more tightly and menus that break from the current paradigm, you can bet if Invision did that, we'd still be back with another set of demands next month.
    So how about we get together, put our hands in our pockets and see if we can find a designer come dev to create a configurable theme for us - and I mean a theme, not a (wanit in green, blue, red?) skinning exercise. It could include all sorts of presets including spacing, fonts, menu positions and so on, including specifics for desktop and mobile. Won't be cheap, but at least at the end of it we will have something we can use to give us what we want, rather than assuming Invision can pull a theme styling rabbit out of the hat which is going to miraculously please us all. I just don't see it.
    Of course, Invision are more than capable of doing this themselves. But a bit a string only goes so far, and if they do this, then all the other stuff we need like video transcoding (ok I need that 🙂 ) will get pushed to the back of the queue.
    So how how about it? Put our energies into something creative?

    In 4.5 we've tried to keep headers consistent, so that buttons are where you expect them to be, there's space for additional buttons as each page/app might require, and so that each page/app can extend the data shown in the header without the whole thing breaking down. In 4.4, this was a problem - sure, on perfect example pages, the follow button worked well in the top right. But using a different app where more buttons need to be shown, or even just having a long topic title, suddenly it wasn't so pretty and usable. The new header is designed to be flexible and extensible according to requirements.
    It's pretty easy to take one particular page and find criticisms - but remember we are designing a suite where each page might have some shared functionality and some unique functionality. We have to design components that can work well in more than one perfect scenario.
