  1. The comment you quoted says more or less the opposite and explains it.
  2. Personally, I wouldn’t call uploaded files directly with the image URL from the uploads folder. That doesn’t count as an actual use in the system and the file might get deleted later. It is better to make it a theme resource and then call it like {resource= …} Also, make sure to not call http images, since your site is using https. At the moment, the page tries to load an http image, which by the way doesn’t even exist.
  3. I don’t follow. What action specifically are you performing where? What can be seen in the screenshot wouldn’t require any actions at all. Those accounts will be deleted automatically.
  4. We’ll see. At the moment, I bet 9 out of 10 people in my communities haven’t even heard of Discord. And the 10th person probably knows it but doesn’t use it. 😉
  5. So the problem is that you or your users don’t know they need to hit Enter twice? Is that what it is about? The description is not really clear. Not really sure how to solve this. An editor button would probably cause more confusion, since it’s a context-specific action, that requires the cursor to sit at a very specific spot. I also wouldn’t want to have an inline button pop out all the time I have the cursor in a quote.
  6. Just want to say thanks for supporting us who struggle a bit with Pages. I think you alone answer 90% of all my questions 🙂

  7. Your browser’s developer tools to “inspect“ the page source allow you to find the items to target (e.g. for removal).
  8. I’m not sure everyone would want to hide the stuff you want to hide. But if you need it, it’s like two lines of code in your custom.css. @media print { #ipsLayout_sidebar { display:none; } #ipsLayout_header {display:none; } }
  9. Which is surprising, since I would expect the vast majority of events being put on IPS calendars being local events with a local start time.
  10. Based on my 18 years as community admin, I completely disagree. Every busy community needs moderation and moderation needs a foundation in proper rules that members have a chance to know upfront – otherwise people will feel the moderator actions are arbitrary and unfair. And then the smallest action can make people leave the community angrily forever. And vague rules are identical to non-existing rules. It’s pointless to state “we reserve the right to delete posts at any time”. I need to know specifically what could cause a deletion. Otherwise I might spend hours crafting elaborate responses and then have them deleted after seconds. Of course I would get very angry with that. On my sites, I even take this further. Not only have I specific rules, I even have escalation steps for rule violation. So a user first gets a small warning with a link to the rules. Then if they brake the rules again, it’s clearly their fault. The ball is in their corner and they can’t blame the admin anymore or say “but I didn’t know this rule”. I also don’t buy the argument of possibly misreading rules. If that would come up, I would just fix it by clearing up the misunderstanding. And even if that would be impossible, this problem wouldn’t outweigh the benefits of having detailed rules. Just as I wouldn’t say: people something misread traffic signs and that can cause problems. So let’s tear down all traffic signs to avoid that and tell drivers or cops to use their best judgement. That clearly wouldn’t work. In addition: I simply prevent arguing over rules and moderation actions by having another rule about that. 😉 I explain that admin decisions are final and that you cannot open a closed topic again or open a topic to complaining about a moderation action. That prevents any such debates.
  11. You could use the group promotion feature to demote a member from a regular group to a group which can’t do anything after 2 years.
  12. The change on the site in the code is instant. I can’t influence what the social media sites are doing. If you see the regular sharer image, it was either cached by the social media site, or the plugin couldn’t find a proper attachment to use.
  13. The structural problem in Pages is that a record is not only virtually tied to the category, but also in the URL, e.g. page/category/record-r1 With this setup, you can’t easily assign multiple categories, since that would creative different URLs for the same record. Or you need some kind of alias forwarding hack, which might not be very user friendly.
