    Hexsplosions reacted to tonyv in ACP suggestion   
    When deleting a member, a small screen pops up and reads, "Are you sure you want to permanently delete this member? This action cannot be undone." It would be beneficial if the message was more specific, if it read, "Are you sure you want to permanently delete aloppibra? This action cannot be undone." Whenever I see the small screen asking me if I'm sure, I always hesitate and sometimes wonder, second guess myself, as to whether I'm actually deleting the correct user.

    In my case, I noticed the PayPal errors before the patch was available. I ran the support tool to no avail. This means, of course, that having already run the support tool I wouldn't go and run it again, so the patches remained an unknown. My timing meant that I literally missed them.
    I'm hoping the calls in this thread result in something more proactive, even if we have to opt in to it.

    Attn: @Invision Community - Please add "Nodes" to the admin cp search index. FWIW when i search for anything using a search tool my expectations are for it to return results relating to my search terms, i don't care if its a language translation. I search because i'm looking for something ...
    it is because of my own ignorance of not knowing correct location.... like when i yell at my wife and ask where my socks are if they are not where i think they should be , she does not say "socks don't exist"

    The issue is that we may not know we're affected until something goes wrong, which could result in a lost registration, loss of content, loss of revenue, etc.
    I'd certainly advocate a more proactive approach to patching since I want to know if there is a possibility that an issue affects my community, rather than find out later when it could be too late. Even if it's just a banner or email notification, that'd be much better.

    Merry Christmas IPS team! 🎅🤶🎄
    I have some feedback on the user of forum specific rules to improve the display of them, particularly in ensuring that users posting in forums are aware of forum-specific rules.
    I use a set of rules for our sales area of our community. It is a dedicated forum space for our users to advertise their property for sale to others. In doing so, we expect them to abide by a set of rules:

    As you can see, these are clearly displayed as soon as a user enters the specific forum. These are set in the ACP in the area specifically provided for this purpose:

    If a user follows a fairly traditional workflow, by navigating to the specific forum to create a new post, the rules are seen. However, we now have a different workflow available to users where this will not be the case. There is, on the forum index, a 'Start new topic' button:

    Clicking this button requires you to select a forum to create the new topic in:

    A user's workflow may instead therefore be to:
    visit the index; click on the 'Start new topic' button; and select a forum to post this in. When this workflow is followed, the user in question never sees the forum-specific rules. They are taken to the editor on which the forum specific rules are not displayed:

    This means that, in the event of a dispute, the user can validly claim to have been unaware of any specific rules they may have breached.
    Although this can be remedied on a case-by-case basis through tactful moderation, it would be better and more efficient to simply ensure the forum specific rules are visible to users using this workflow to create new topics.
    Thanks for reading. 🙂

    Hexsplosions reacted to Charles in Sorting posts by reverse   
    What your "expert" misses is that our platform is designed for conversation. Social media is designed for you to post some thought, someone leaves a comment, and never looks at it again. Look at this very topic: it was posted in 2018 and now you are bringing it back to life. That does not happen on social media.
    That is fine for social media as that is the point. It's not the point of a platform like we make and the fact that we are not trying to do that is a huge selling point to our clients.

    This assumes it would show differently in the editor, which is not necessarily the case. The CSS could apply there as well.

    It should use whatever your browser has it's region set to, and if there is nothing there, not select anything as the default. Look here and see what your browser is reporting for "Language": https://www.whatsmybrowser.org
    Or, if you enable Google Maps autocomplete information and the user grants access, it will use your real location and autocomplete favouring addresses that are in the same city/etc as you

    Hexsplosions got a reaction from Mesharsky | H2K in Different theme for Mobile   
    I believe IPS is adopting a mobile first approach to IPS 5, which may alleviate the issues you're seeing. That's obviously some way off though.

    I can, however, see the benefit of this capability. It would allow responsive themes to be developed for specific user agents and for the theme to be tailored to that device. Instead of, for example, hiding an element on a smaller screen it could instead simply be removed entirely.
    What I'd really like to see is the ability to select different layouts based on device used. As it stands, responsiveness simply pushes the sidebar down on smaller devices. I'd like the ability to have a sidebar on screens with the real-estate to display it and the ability to define a completely different layout for other screen sizes. In this way a block at the top of the sidebar could, for a mobile device, be given the prominence the admin desires, rather than having it pushed down with the sidebar.

    Keep in mind that amending the group formatting will affect the formatting of the group everywhere, which can have unintended consequences. That's why I didn't suggest it. (I made that mistake once.)
