    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.

    I removed it, even though the income was pretty good.
    I removed it because complaints about nude ladies in ads. I did all I could to get rid of that stuff, but I did not manage to remove those ads completely.  Actually seeing my own site through others eyes with those ads just got me mad (users posted clips on my site what they did see).  
    I never looked back after I removed it. Google are still pushing a lot of trafic our way.

    I have the best CPM when showing Google ads only to the guests and fresh registered users. The old users are kind of "blind" for the ads. They produce a lot of impressions but no clicks. I also have paid subscriptions that allow to use the page "ad free". Those users do not see AdSense and do not see any ads from direct advertisers or affiliate links as well. 
    For my experience you cannot use Google on the "serious" websites. Hobbies, gaming, casino, 18+ are OK. The more direct advertisers you can attract the sooner you should get rid of AdSense.

    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.

    "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 .

    I met Dawid 7 years ago when I started my adventure with IPS. At the beginning it was occasional contacts, help with my lack of skills, then more over online meetings, discussions, bugfixes of his applications that I used. We've been writing to each other almost every day for some time. He had a head full of ideas and I helped him achieve something more, or cooled down his enthusiasm in introducing new functions. It hurts the most when I look at the latest (SD) E-CommercePlus application. I persuaded him to introduce integration with wholesalers' price lists (which worked perfectly) and to link the prices of products in Commerce with different rates of product commissions. After all, the very name of the application - CommercePlus- is the result of our joint discussions. We also worked together on the Polish translation pack - we both believe that we had the best translation for our native language, we updated it frequently along with the translations for his applications. I did not know Dawid personally, but I was terribly stunned by the news. What hurts the most - Dawid left two very small children and a wife 😞 Not so long ago, I lost my daughter and I remember how Dawid behaved in this situation. Maybe that's why I was so touched by his passing. Dawid was a very nice guy, even if someone let him down, took advantage of him or made fun of him, he was still a nice and eager guy - he did what he liked and what is rare - he shared his knowledge willingly and selflessly.

    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.

    Kjell Iver Johansen reacted to BOFO in Paypal Smart Payment Buttons   
    Hi,
     
    it would be great if in the next version of the software Paypal Smart Payment Buttons can be integrated instead of the old Paypal Checkout. Link https://developer.paypal.com/docs/checkout/
     
    The very big advantage of using, the now default, Paypal Smart Payment Buttons over the old Paypal Checkout is that with the buttons many local country payment options are integrated in the Paypal checkout.
     
    In the old Paypal Checkout customers can only pay through either their Paypal account or a debit/credit card.
    Credit card payments only take up about 20% of all European online payments, so not offering local payment option to European customers means missing out on a lot of revenue.
     
    With the Paypal Buttons solution you automatically can accept payments for these local payment options:
    Alternative payment method Buyer country Customer transaction limit Bancontact Belgium n/a eps Austria Minimum: 1.00 EUR giropay Germany Minimum: 1.00 EUR iDEAL The Netherlands n/a MyBank Italy n/a Przelewy24 (P24) Poland Minimum: 1 PLN 
    Maximum: 55,000 PLN Sofort Austria, Belgium, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain Minimum: 1.00 EUR  
    Therefore it would be great if this can be a standard payment integration in the next release of Invision Community software.
     
    Thanks and I hope you will integrate it.

    Hey team, wondering...
    Is it possible to have someone who just signed up for a subscription taken to a thank you page?
    Currently... there doesn't appear to be a method to thank them for their support after they've subscribed. They subscribe and then once it processes, it takes them back to the subscriptions page. 
    I'd love to have them immediately sent to a page thanking them. Thoughts?

    Kjell Iver Johansen reacted to Aiwa in Facebook - How Long Will It Live?   
    I used to have hundreds of friends, mostly from school/work. I’m from the generation where you had to have a school .edu account to sign up. I gave up Facebook almost 3 years ago, last electionish timeframe, and haven’t looked back. There is one thing about having a healthy debate on differences. It’s an entirely different story when debates turn into defamation and overall nastiness. Nothing productive. 
    When any of my family members start a sentence with “I read this on Facebook” I instantly tune them out. My mom sends me links to Facebook and/or general social media sites all the time. She doesn’t get the message when I reply to her text “UNSUBSCRIBE”. 
    The only use I have for Facebook/Twitter  are the enabling of social media logins.
