    Davyc got a reaction from sobrenome in Online Users doesn't always show correctly   
    Thanks for that @opentype
    Took a little finding as the ACP search returned Zero results for it, but like @Dexter_X I eventually found it.  As I don't use many blocks on my site, I reduced the time to a 1 minute interval and will see how it goes.  I do agree that some additional controls would be good to have that could be set for individual blocks so they can be prioritised and perhaps be less of a hit on performance 🙂
    Thanks again for the info - much appreciated.

    Which means it's practically useless now as it will always be giving false readings - I understand the performance impact issue, but how much of an issue is it if it wasn't an immediately obvious noticeable impact before it was introduced.  If it's cached then how often is the cache updated and would be an idea to give admins an option as to how often it gets updated and allow them to decide what impact on performance it has 🙂

    For some reason or other the Online Users widget is not always showing correctly who is online.  For example I just visited my site and although I'm permanently logged in I'm not showing in the Online Users list.  See below:
    I'm logged in:

    But in the Online User list another member is showing but not me.

    Now, if I click the (See full list) link I can see my username and when I go back to the home screen I'm showing in the list.
    There is also another issue that has been around for a long while that's never been addressed.  On the rare occasion that the Online User list is working I can see that I'm logged in and there is one guest showing, but that guest is me; how can I be a guest and logged in at the same time?
    Looking for help and answers with thanks 🙂

    Davyc reacted to Nathan Explosion in Support phraseology   
    In your communications, you are referring to "Community Support" - if someone comes on to this site looking for support then they are likely to be looking for 'Community Support' as a result, which will end up with them finding this:
    https://invisioncommunity.com/forums/forum/406-community-support/
    And has the description:
    I'd suggest a rename of that forum to remove that confusion, and maybe a rename of the actual support forum to something like "Official Invision Community Help & Support"

    My guilty pleasure… 
    After finding out about Graces Perfect Blend (KFC Recipe in Ireland). I revisited my childhood go to meal. Chicken Burgers, but with cheese and hashbrowns.
    For those from the UK, will know about Morley’s Chicken, Chick Cottage, etc (basically the cheap chicken shops).



    I’m not ashamed. 😌

    Trust me, no one missed that point. You just seem to brush over the fact that there can be reasons to force a person to register DESPITE them “likely not returning”. 
    So? Because others do it, it must be the right approach? Are you really not seeing the objective logical flaw in that reasoning?
    And should we point you to a few of the hundreds of thousands of websites that DO require a registration? Do THOSE sites then equally prove that it is the right decision to force a registration? See how this type of reasoning doesn’t work?
    Good for you. Others have different goals. Yet, you want to paint it as if their approach must be based on “bad decisions”. And you assert questionable reasons like “inflating registration numbers”. Who said that was a reason? No one. So why do you assert it and put it out there? It’s dishonest! You ignore the reasons that people are actually giving you and make up your own reason for them, which you can then dismiss as bad. And you assert that forcing a registration cannot “serve a purpose”. Sorry, but that is either arrogance or ignorance. You assert that your approach and your opinion must be the only valid one – despite the millions of websites and apps requiring registrations who’s owners all apparently do not see what you see. 
    Oh, that is simple: Because you might want the file.
    It’s just another trade offer. For commercial offers, it’s product traded for money. In the freemium field on the internet, it can also be file or service traded for registration. You decide if it’s worth it to you. If not, just move on. 
    Just because the offer doesn’t work for you, doesn’t mean that the one making the offer has made a mistake. It just means you are not the right “customer” for their offer. If I walk through a mall, there are thousands of offers that don’t work for me. Yet, I don’t approach the store owners telling them they are doing it wrong, because their offers don’t match what the products would be worth it to me. That would be kind of ridiculous. Yet, it’s exactly what you are doing here.

    There are many reasons as to why a developer uploads files to his/her website. Drawing traffic might be one of them. You say it as it is a bad thing, but it is not bad at all. The file in question is free and the dev put some time and effort in coding it and if they draw some traffic from it, then that is their reward for their hard work.  If you want to download it, then you will have to register at the dev 's site. Otherwise you can either a) request one to be developed for you, or b) learn how to code and code it yourself.
    I am sorry to say this, but the way you are complaining about this, it is very irritating.  You can get something for free, but you do not want to lift a finger. Perhaps the developer can come to your home and install the plugin for you as well while he is at it? 😄

    Davyc reacted to Darth Vortex in no update for lastest ipb   
    You can't compare this to those download portals. Every dev here that runs his own site and offers software and support (free or paid) does this for members only.
    That's exactly the same as you are writing only one line above that. The only difference is, you don't even have to pay

    Here's an example of an accordion panels using Pages and a custom block - using CSS and JS functions - you can add as many panels as you want and style them as you want.  You may need an HTML editor (such as Dreamweaver) but if you're happy to hand code then it should not be an issue.
    https://moviebuffs.org/test-page/
    I'll just leave this page up for a while as it's only a test - you must you the above URL to access the page as it's not in any of the menus.
    🙂
    EDIT:  After some thought I decided to go to the CKEditor site and found a FAQ plugin that will allow you to add all manner of different types of FAQ right from within the editor.  I've attached the file here if you want to give it a try and I've added an example to the above page.

    Davyc reacted to opentype in Favicon is using wrong image   
    Sure, but even then it’s also connected to IPS’ implementation. I upload an “application icon”, which is fine for this very purpose, but this is also downscaled and suggested as generic image. But that image might not work at all at tiny sizes. At least in this case, it would be necessary to force a dedicated small image. And in fact, that’s what happening for the ACP where you don’t output the full line of images. 

    In other words: the problem is that the application icon is not just suggested as application icon in the generated code.  
    If I remove the application icon, I get the desired result for the favicons, but then I do not have an application icon for when the website is saved to the homescreen.
