    Kjell Iver Johansen got a reaction from Jordan Invision in Prevent guests from seeing full size image   
    Agree. My single most important plug-in is the one that hides links from guests. When I installed the plug-in several years ago the new users sign-up tripled. But off-course, signing up for a new site is one thing, another is if the will contribute to the community later on.
    But the idea of just showing smaller images or maybe blurred images for guests appealed to me as well.

    Kind of strange that vbulletin has this feature and that it is so diffucult here. Wouldn’t it help if you disable lightbox (or whatever that pop-up with lagre image is called) for guests via a plug-in?

    Kjell Iver Johansen got a reaction from kmk in Mail to topic   
    There is. I used it a few years ago.

    I used a service called email to rss, and then converted the email-rss to topics via rss import. It worked out nice.
    I registred that email adress on a lot of websites to receive bargains, and everytime the shops had a sale email - a topic was created.

    Worked out of the box for me - did not do anything than adding app ID and Secret and oembed. I used the same ID for Instagram and facebook

    I am too waiting for this to work - automatic embed is important for some users. I have some top posters that use Instagram and posts images from that community, and it is very important these days.

    Hi @Fosters ! How do I disable output in files and in the profile tab?
    Can't the design be made a little more attractive using standard IPB classes?
    Move the bookmarks button in messages to the menu that is on the top right of messages?
    Very good app but apart from two switches in editing groups, I didn't find any more settings..
    Do you have time to bring it to its logical end a little?

    Add a few settings to enable and disable everything below, please
    CONTENT ITEMS
    Bookmarks works with the following content items:
    Topic Posts Blog Entries Blog Comments Download Files Download Comments Gallery Images Gallery Comments Gallery Albums Project Manager Items Project Manager Comments Please make the app more flexible
    -----------------


     
     
    P.S.---------------
    If you are interested in this, then let me make you visually all this? A really good module, but the display and navigation leaves much to be desired. I can sponsor you

    Look... it will look very flexible and attractive.
    --------------
    Default category.
    These are the categories that are included in the admin panel.
    from these pages, bookmarks should automatically fall into their own categories and already in this category we can add a subcategory in which we want to place favorites.
    Everything that is disabled is not shown either where, or categories, or the bookmarks button.
     

     
    ------------------
    The main page of bookmarks.
    Categories by default from the right, only what is enabled in the admin panel is shown.
    In the body we will put the text through WYSIWYG editor.

    Adding a Topic to your bookmarks.

    If you add a topic, file, page, gallery, (all except comments and posts) then in the pop-up window bookmarks do not show the Title.

    Boockmark Topic add pop-up - (files. Gallery Albums, Gallery Images, Blog Entries, Pages)

     
    --------------

    You will get very nice and neat.

    3.0.1 has been released on my site and here (waiting approval here). it has fixed these issues and added in the new feature for idle time. 
  12. Thanks
    Kjell Iver Johansen reacted to CodingJungle in [CJ] Babble (Support Topic)   
    added this in for the next version, it will be a group setting. so you can set different times between 1 minute to 60 minutes (like the idler was in 2.x), the message will display showing they have 30 seconds before disconnection (it will also now countdown from 30 :) and the message will change when it hits 0, saying that they have been disconnected).

    Kjell Iver Johansen reacted to Dean_ in Notice of patches to be applied   
    I'm sure I've seen this mentioned before, but can we implement a notice/message notifying us of patches?

    We have the notification feature in AdminCP, is there no way you can use this to push out a notice for us to check for patch updates?

    As of now, the only way we know is by running the support tool, which is what I just did now only to find the new patch regarding Facebook.

    I'll keep 2.x servers running for 30 days after 3.0.0 launch, then i will shut them down.
    a few minutes of this video (its from a much earlier build, but the concepts are still similar), i talk about the mobile for babble 3.0. I'll do a fresh video later today of it, as it think it is a big improvement over 2.x "mobile".

    I have the same issue as TS. I have tested all the code suggestions here, but none of them seems to work. 
    I think it is the size of the Header bar that causes this, but I might be wrong.

    Kjell Iver Johansen reacted to sadams101 in Recommendation to Turn Off Post Before Registering   
    In the last few months I've noticed a sharp uptick in my spam reports from Comcast and other large email providers. When I view the spam reports, 90%+ of them contain this auto-response:
    The number of these reports has been steadily increasing over time, so the risk is that my site/domain/server will be blocked from sending email to many large providers like Comcast.
    What is clearly happening here is that bots are trying to post, and are inserting either random email addresses from a spam list, or simply generating fake email addresses. 
    They are being reported as spam by those who receive them because they are spam...these emails were not generated by the users who are reporting them as spam, they are created by bots who are simply using their emails in an automated attempt to spam using my forum.
    Due to this I've turned off the Post Before Registering feature in the admin CP, and recommend that everyone else do the same, unless they want to be blocked from sending email to large email providers.

    Kjell Iver Johansen reacted to Martin A. in Member Map   
    That is correct. I have thought about making this a paid app many times before, both for the 4.4 and 4.3 version. And the price I'm placing on this now is the same I planned to put on it back then. (It is also the same price Michael (InvisionModding) had on his Tutorials app 10 years ago in the 3.x series, so I would say it's about time the overall prices increase in this market)
    Having this generate a bit of income will of course increase the motivation of keeping this updated and adding new features a great lot. The first version of this will not come with many new features, mainly just the IPS 4.5 compatibility.

    Kjell Iver Johansen reacted to Ptilly in Removal of $15 Domain Change   
    "Popular drummers forum". While I'm here running a forum for a small Garry's Mod gaming community. I spend $2500.00 on Garry's Mod Server Add-ons and $1000+ on XenForo add-ons and themes. Want to know what the cool thing about that is? I own every single bit of it and I can download it at any time I please.
    So don't come 'Barneys Girlfriend'ing at me about what forums software I should and shouldn't use; I've ran my community model with the mindset of being able to survive without donations, but with Invision Power Board's team being greedy, and being laid off from work due to COVID, that possiblity has just now become alot slimmer. Unless you have the money to give me to spend on $200 a month for both the Garry's Mod Server, web server, and license divided up into the six month period on a month-per-month basis, I suggest you stick to your little drummers forum.

    My IPhone Xr are on repair again (terrible phone!), so at the moment I use my sons IPhone SE. I think that is a standard screensize for many members also.
    How many users need Condensed/Expanded and how many need to alter Stream Options. There must be better way of doing this. I think it is a setback from the version we are on now, and I hope there will be a setting so that we easily can skip that stuff. Most of my members don't care about this functionality - they just need to see activity.

    Will there be an option to remove unuseful information (For us)from top of that page when next version are here? On one of my sites members check new content all the time and this new look is not userfriendly in my opinion . 
    attach views from new and old version...I know what I prefer 🙂

    I 100% agree, which is why I privately commissioned a plug-in "Compact Streams" from @Spanner over a year ago. He can probably privately sell for a very modest price.  
    I killed all of that junk on mobile.  No stream title, no stream description, no stream option, no stream filter, no condensed or expanded. Five lines of junk, junk, junk.  
     
    Communities that are 50%+ mobile should be auditing all of their top pages on mobile to evaluate the user experience.

    Kjell Iver Johansen reacted to Fast Lane! in Mobile App, Progressive Web App (PWA) For IPB   
    My biggest fear with an app (and why I won't offer it to my users) is as follows:
    - it breaks the site wide experience since I have many elements of our site beyond the forums. I want them to have the full experience. Not just chat. If they used the app they would probably not use the mobile site much (which has tons of other content) and when they did click on links to those areas of the site it would be a jarring experience swapping to the browser and back. 
    - there is no way to monetize the app well.  Def not as well as the web. 
    My expectation is that I'll stick with the mobile responsive view of the site which works just fine.
