  1. Ahhh, I get what you mean now. The oustanding issue then is sending two parcels when customers are expecting just the one, but that’s another matter. But yeah, sod everything I said above. Cheers. Closed.
  2. You're missing something. The GIANT LEAP in shipping costs between 2.00KG and 2.01KG+ So, again taking the example illustration from my first post: Weight of order: 2.00Kg = £10 Weight of order: 2.01+ Kg = £60 Splitting the order into 2 shipments, (both then below 2KG), means £60 => £20 That is the issue.
  3. Commerce would: Recognise that a shopping cart order is over a set critical limit and split the shipment into two (or more) separate shipments, informing the customer inside the shopping cart that this has been done as their order is above a weight limit. This then accounts for costs of the extra packaging necessary as well as factored-in Tare calculations programmed into the shipping costs table (since Commerce does not offer a Tare facility itself).
  4. With our shop it's very expensive to post items over 2Kgs in weight so we don't allow it. Currently there is no way in Commerce to put a warning on a shopping cart saying that the "weight limit" has been exceeded From my point of view, the solution could be as simple as allowing an associated text box in the shipping rates form next to a shipping value entry, that would be displayed in the customer's shopping cart area. Again not the most elegant solution, but perhaps easier to implement in the shorter term. (ideally it would auto-split into two or more packages anyway) The issue from my point of view is: Weight of order: 2Kg = £10 Weight of order: 2.1 Kg = £60 So - it's better to split into 2 parcels that would then cost at maximum £20 rather than a minimum of £60... Thoughts welcome.
  5. Just some feedback received today from one of our customers: I really like it too... Well done Invision!

    override bulk email opt out

    GDPR trumps all. There is an option in ACP to require people to accept new terms/conditions when they've been updated.

    Spam via Contact Us - Call to Arms!

    Because they wouldn't know the answers to the questions on a specialist web site - nor could they look them up. That is why.

    Spam via Contact Us - Call to Arms!

    We get contact form spam. It’s being used by human spammers so they overcome Invisible reCaptcha. Invision Power: Please allow Q&A to be used with the contact form - as that would do the trick. Thanks!
  9. +1 on not requiring Twitter registrations as well.
  10. Are there any known issues to using MySQL 8? Cheers.

    Encrypt Private Messages

    No. Private messages. Encrypt please.
  12. I would like to suggest that the Private Message system be updated so that messages between participants are encrypted, and can only be decrypted by the involved parties. This would mean that even admins could not read those Private Messages and more importantly (heaven forbid) if the database were accessed or downloaded without authority then the meaningful content could not be extracted from the database and used for extortion. Privacy and security are becoming increasingly important, not just for site owners, but also users.

    IPS 4.2+ Encrypted Messages?

    Thank you for the speedy reply. I will do that. Security and privacy is becoming increasingly important - especially after recent developments that have made the news.
  14. I'm looking to upgrade to IPS 4.2 or 4.3 (when out). One of my questions is: * Can messages in the Private Messages facility be encrypted so only the sender and recipient(s) can read them? i.e. not even the admins or anyone who may somehow downloaded a copy of the database? - and yes, I am the admin.
