  1. If that was a valid argument, one could just remove almost every other frontend block, too, because... people can just check out the activities page. (Sarcasm aside, of course I understand what you are saying. And I see, you also understand what I propose to implement.)
  2. There is, however, one huge downside to using the Pages App as a blog: It is not possible (at least not by default/without custom coding) to display article comments in a block in the frontend. Also, I did not find any way to realize this via custom blocks in the backend (I am no programer/coding expert). So how can I draw the users' attention to article comments when there is no way to display those comments anywhere on the site? I really do not know why a block for article comments is missing, but I'd really like to see this being added to the software.
  3. In this case I am pretty sure it is no svg letter photo. 🎉😋
  4. Some people forget things within an hour. A whole day can be very helpful! 😎 (Sarcasm off. You are right.)
  5. While I totally agree with you (and I hope IPS will add an option to definitly dismiss all of these notices), I think the argument was: "Those are important notices and we want to make sure that no one dismisses them and then simply forgets about this serious issue." Yeah... 🙄 The same goes for the notice about an expired license. Yes, it is good advertisement to nag about this, but I do not like it at all.
  6. Post before register and lazy loading.
  7. Whenever I discovered a bug, I simply opened a support ticket in the client area. That is what IPS staff is recommending, too.
  8. This is not correct. You can create a feed from articles in the AdminCP. However then the block only displays articles in the frontend. Check out what is available for the other apps under AdminCP > Pages > Blocks > Create New Block: Post Feed (Forums), Blog Comments (Blogs), Recent Comments (Gallery). These are also available as default blocks in the Block Manager in the frontend. A similar block for article comments is missing, hence my suggestion.
  9. Oh my, I just noticed that there is a link at the very top ("Support"). 😮 I though everything was greyed out, like in the Manage Purchases > [Site Name] area.
  10. When I open the Block Manager in the frontend of my IPS installation, I can create a Post Feed block (Forums), a Blog Comments block (Blogs) etc. With that I can display the latest comments/answers within the respective application. What is missing though is a block that allowes to display the latest comments of Pages articles. Most likely this can be done via a custom block in the AdminCP, but I have no idea how to achieve this. 😥 And since we have such blocks for the other apps, I think Pages should get this too. Right now I cannot display the latest article comments on my site, so I cannot help my users to recognize article comments.
  11. Right now my account is placed in the members group and not in the clients group. Thus I cannot create a ticket, even if I just want to report a possible bug that I have found. So here is my suggestion as well as a question: Suggestion: Please allow any registered user to report bugs. Question: How can I report bugs, even if I am currently not part of the clients group?
  12. The answer to that is "No". Version 4.4 will use CKEditor 4.11.0 (see this post).
  13. I know and I highly appreciate that. 🙂 By now I have created a German translation of IPS 4.3.6, which I consider to be "very good". However it took me almost a year to get there (not working full-time on this of course) and many phrases have been heavily modified in order to achieve a high quality translation regarding grammar, punctuation, overall good wording, correct declensions and whatnot. I know it is not very likely to see huge improvements to the translation tools in the 4.x series, but I have to admit I strongly hope that 5.0 will pay more attention to this area.
  14. I think it would actually be helpful to have a description wherever image uploads are possible in the AdminCP, saying something like: "Recommended: 250 px x 100 px or higher." This might become obsolete though if we are able to upload .svg files in the future...
  15. Creating translations of the Invision Community is not that easy... and IPS, at least so far, does not really do anything to improve in this field. My guess is that translations are not very important to them because they sell most licenses to English-speaking customers. Here are some examples of issues that I have with translations: Cost-intensive I: You need to own all apps to be able to create a complete translation. Cost-intensive II: You need to have an active license to stay up-to-date and to release files in the marketplace. Lack of comfort I: The options in the AdminCP regarding translations are very limited (e.g. no tracking of language string changes across versions, no export of certain language strings only... there are tons of suggestions in this feedback forum) Lack of comfort II: For some reason I do not know IPS decided to "shred" their language strings into pieces. Many strings are a combination of placeholders plus text plus more placeholders and text. And the worst part: a complete sentence in the frontend can consist of 3, 4, maybe 5 of these cobinations. While this seems to work with the English version, you have a serious problem to create good translations in other languages, especially those where rules regarding grammar, cases, declension etc. are more complex.
