  1. Your screenshot is not showing and I'm not able to reproduce this locally but if you send me a PM with an admin login I can investigate that. @jesuralem and @Nathan Explosion There isn't any native support for videos currently. Any file uploaded will show as a downloadable link. I can look into adding video playback however.
  2. It is not enabled by default.
  3. This hasn't been very popular so I wasn't planning to update it but that said it's quite straightforward and doesn't require much in the way of support so I'll see what I can do.
  4. Please send me a PM with access info and I will investigate. Thanks these are some great suggestions. I'll see what I can do for the next version.
  5. Are you logged in as a restricted administrator perhaps? If so you may need to enable the completion restrictions using a different admin user.
  6. Just a momentary thing for the moderator.
  7. For a very long time Invision Community has allowed community owners to choose how open or private their communities should be. Communities could optionally allow guests to post without registering, they could allow the use of pseudonyms or they could require the use of real names. This covers a diverse range of communities but feedback from our clients made us realize that some use cases have not been accounted for. For some types of community, where discussion topics are particularly sensitive, community owners want to make sure that members register with their real details but are
  8. There is a 4.5 compatible version currently submitted and in the review process now. Thanks for your patience.
  9. The app is not officially compatible with 4.5 currently. It may work without issue but I will be reviewing shortly and releasing a confirmed compatibility update in the next couple of weeks.
  10. New Application Extensions Three new application extensions are available; core/RssImport core/MobileNavigation core/OverviewStatistics \IPS\Application::getRootPath() A new \IPS\Application::getRootPath() method is available to return the path to application files regardless of the server environment, which should be used instead of \IPS\ROOT_PATH Stock Photos The WYSIWYG editor now includes an "allowStockPhotos" options array parameter. A boolean value is accepted and will determine whether or not the editor can have images attached
  11. The Invision Community framework is set up with security best practices in mind but there are a few things you should make use of in order to not inadvertently bypass these protections. Validating User Input Where your application or plugins request user data the built in Form handling methods should be used. By default form input is protected against vulnerabilities but you should still ensure the correct form types are used for example using email address, number and radio fields etc. where appropriate. This not only provides the best user experience but also means the input
  12. What it is MobileNavigation extensions are used to add new tabs to the mobile app navigation menu, tying in directly with the menu manager in the AdminCP. How to use Many of the same methods are implemented as the core/FrontNavigation extension so if you are familiar with this extension you already have a head start. Implemented methods in the mobile navigation extension are as follows; /** * Can the currently logged in user access the content this item links to? * * @return bool */ public fun
  13. Ah I see, it's the vertical menu that prevents a sub item. It's not possible to add a link Link as in your screenshot unless you're comfortable making theme edits in which case you would edit the "competitions" template. Alternatively you could edit the "There are no competitions available" language string to include a link. I don't have a date yet but it will likely be inline with the Invision Community 4.5 release or shortly after.
  14. If you still have a primary nav bar for the contest page you could add an external link type as a sub item using the menu manager. Would that work?
  15. Helen took on extra responsibilities in her day job and no longer had the time to commit to it.
  16. We're keeping an eye on it as we do with all new technology announcements but there are no immediate plans right now.
  17. Since the feature was announced at last year’s World Wide Developer Conference (WWDC) we have received lots of requests to implement Sign in with Apple in Invision Community. We’re pleased to announce that as of 4.5 this is now available. You will need a paid Apple developer account to use it but once enabled users will be able to sign in using their Apple ID and all the convenience that brings. Touch ID and Face ID is supported natively where available and works across all your devices. Choose to share or hide your email address Isn’t it just another login button?
  18. Can you please send me a PM with admin control panel access and a link to the issue so I may investigate this?
  19. This is a bug. The rules should only show if any are set. I have fixed this for the next release. This is in interesting idea. I think this could work by blurring images for competitions marked as NSFW until a user toggles a preference. Their preference could be stored per session.
  20. You can allow your members to sign in to your community using their Apple ID with the benefits that brings such as FaceID/Touch ID and Two factor authentication. Using this method, members can also protect their privacy by choosing to hide their real email address. Their account will be created using a relay email address unique to your community. Sign in with Apple requires a paid Apple developer account that can be created at https://developer.apple.com. Creating the Credentials Once you have an Apple developer account you can create the credentials needed.
  21. This is not a feature unfortunately. The app is focussed on connections between users.
  22. Does it happen on the default theme? Could you send me a PM with an admin login so I can look into that for you? I'm not able to reproduce the issue locally.
  23. I have released a new version to address the latest reported bugs. I have also been working hard on 1.4 which has some rather large changes now so I think I will target 4.5 for this. I will still be doing bug fix releases for 1.3 on 4.4 for the foreseeable future. @misfit76 Can you PM me about the horizontal widget issue please? I'm not able to reproduce that locally. Does anybody use the scheduler? I'm thinking of removing it to reduce complexity but will leave it if people say they are using it. You will still be able to create competitions with future dates in a
