  1. I just did it here: https://invisionpower.com/forums/topic/417428-html/?do=findComment&comment=2654347 (You can see that I used the HTML tag "code", which is not available through the editor.) This example is even more interesting: https://invisionpower.com/forums/topic/417428-html/?do=findComment&comment=2654348 (In this case I was able to use custom formatting through the "style" attribute.)
  2. As far as I know, you just need to disable Javascript to be able to use raw HTML in certain areas (using the browser developer tools is another option). So, even here you allow us to post raw HTML. I still don't understand why we can't have a "source" button in the editor that allows users to use raw HTML without compromising security.
  3. I don't know if there are still CDNs that are origin push only, but those would no be supported by IPS. In this particular case, the Google Cloud CDN imposes restrictions on the origin. Not sure whether Google Cloud Storage is among the acceptable origins, though.
  4. Try putting the following line in your "constants.php" file: define( 'BULK_MAILS_PER_CYCLE', 20 ); You can decrease the value "20", in case it is not working yet. In case it works, you can try to increase the value. (The default value is 500, I believe. I set it to "1", as IPS was sending emails too fast, and even after setting it to "1", I had to send bulk mails in multiple batches, based on registration date. Otherwise I would hit the limit rate for receiving emails at certain ISPs.)
  5. The login page is now using a CSRF key, so I guess this will make it impossible to automate the login.
  6. There was a solution for v3.x, but that does not seem to work on v4.x. I'm still trying to figure out the right parameters for the new version...
  7. I notice that after editing some blog entries in my community, those entries were marked as unread for all users. I this supposed to happen, or am I doing something wrong?
  8. The KeepAlive issue can be "solved" editing the file "system/Output/Output.php", and removing the line "$this->sendHeader( "Connection: close" );". @Matt, is there any reason for IPS to disable the Keep Alive?
  9. Does anybody know how to fix this issue?
  10. I believe this is how IPB 3.x used to work. If you clink on the topic title, you will go to the first post. If you wanted to go to the new replies, you would have to click on the left bullet. If you wanted to go to the latest post, you would have to click on the date of the latest post.
  11. The problem is not just having the inbox full of emails. It is also the "costs" that community owners may have to support for sending the huge amount of emails that instant notifications may require. After switching to IPB, I had for the first time emails dropped because the hourly quota of my old hosting was exceeded. Using services such as Mandrill, this may have a significant impact on the monthly bill. Moreover, if we keep sending emails to people that do not visit the community, we increase the chances of having them marking the emails as spam. Good to hear
  12. Even if IPS does not provide the "final" solution for this problem, it could include similar functionalities to those provided by plugins or the tools Google suggested, which admins would customize to their needs.
  13. With this Google request, this is not just a problem for european communities anymore. So I guess there are new reasons for IPS to reconsider their position regarding this topic.
  14. You should probably be able to store those files on your own server.
  15. No, it's not like a new post. It takes much less space, particularly when the posts have one or two lines (which is likely to happen when two posts were created in a short period of time). And I assume it does not send a new notification, it does not increase post count, it does not show two entries in the activity stream, etc. Even though I think this is not a critical issue, a separator would be helpful to avoid some confusions.
  16. I got the same feeling after reporting BBCode bugs. rgf100 is right, this is not how it currently works in IPS. In this forum it is enough to disable Javascript to be able to post HTML (and to use tags the editor does not provide as buttons). You can also get around the limitation using the browser's developer tools, using C&P, etc. Thus, regular users do have HTML access. As far as I can tell, IPS correctly filter HTML posted in such ways, removing dangerous HTML. Therefore, I don't understand why we can't have a "source" button in the editor, and still limit the allowed HTML. If there are security issues, the people that knows such security issues will certainly also know these hacks to post HTML. On the other hand, not having such button to allow HTML input makes it more difficult for a regular user to get around the editor limitations.
  17. ​It's not exactly equivalent. A lot of people were already using links before, but the BBCode was more "abstract", and it would allow you to change the URL format of your community (or even change the domain) without getting broken links, for example. Unfortunately, it seems the trend is for IPB to move away from abstract markup to HTML, without understanding the downsides of the move. PS: And I think the link Morpheus NS provided discusses the removal of the posts numbers, which means people cannot refer to a post by its number. But this number has nothing to do with the post id. (Actually, I never liked to use post numbers because they change when we delete posts, which means they are not a reliable identifier.)
  18. ​I don't think that topic is related to the issue raised by AutoItScript. He is talking about the BBCode tags that we had in IPB 3.x.x to generate links to other posts and topics from their ids.
  19. Pressing the TAB key also takes me to outside the editor sometimes. Not sure this is a bug though.
  20. It is supposed to be used by crawlers, so that they can easily find the (new) pages of your site. More info: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Site_maphttps://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/156184?hl=enAlso, IPS uses a sitemap index, which links to the sitemaps with the links from different areas of the suite.
  21. I agree that the post number may sometimes be an easy way to identify a post. However, those are a little bit "fragile" to be used as identifiers: if you hide/delete a post, the posts numbers won't refer to the correct post anymore. In any case, an easy way to copy the post ID could be useful. It shouldn't be difficult to change the "Share this post" modal to show this information though.
  22. I had a similar problem. I think it was caused by bad folder permissions.
  23. I prefer Apache Worker (with PHP-FPM) over Apache Prefork (with mod_php), as it usually makes a better use of RAM. However, I think Event provides even better performances. AFAIK, both Worker and Event do not work with mod_php, which imply some additional configurations to use PHP-FPM.
  24. It would be nice if admins were allowed to select the available notification options, otherwise it's difficult to control the volume of emails generated by the community. Also, I think the options provided are not particularly good. On one hand, the instant notifications send to many mails (it may be useful if we want to follow a topic from the email). On the other hand, the offline notifications makes me miss some updates, as it does not send me an email when I'm online. What is the reason to not send emails when the user is online? Anyway, I think an intermediate option, similar to offline, but that sends notifications even if the user is online, is needed. AFAIK, this option is present in other software such as vB, SMF, or phpBB (but more important, this option makes sense to me).
  25. This feature would be really nice... Give people the ability to choose the editor and the markup language used. You could provide an editor that just uses HTML (and forget about BBCode conversions). Those who want to use BBCode would only have to create an editor and a BBCode to HTML converter. The same would happen for Markdown, Textile, or any other markup language people want to use in their forums.
