  1. What’s the question? You can’t force Google to index it. It’s best to spread pages that are important to you on the internet and that will be a signal for search engines to treat is as more important. Having the majority of community pages not indexed is actually normal these days. And if you have a sitemap registered with Google, just let it do its thing. You don’t have to ask for individual pages to be indexed. That’s what that “no sitemap detected” is telling you.
  2. I tested it and can confirm it. It’s hitting “save” that kills the EXIF data. Doesn’t really matter what is changed or if anything is changed at all. It’s just clicking Edit → Save.
  3. It never really was. Google just follows the user. If a site offers the most relevant content for a search query, then it’s what the user wants to see, whether it takes 500 milliseconds longer to load or not. Only if different sites have exactly the same ranking otherwise, then maybe your ranking position changes a bit. But in general, search results are not ordered by speed. That would be ridiculous. Optimizations are still useful of course, but there is no reason to obsess about them. There are much more impactful changes to be made on the site itself, e.g. how to name pages/forums/topics, how to structure a menu and so on.
  4. It’s usually faulty html in one of the blocks. Impossible to say where exactly from just a screenshot. Could be ad code, theming issues, user-group styling or even individual forum topics with problematic code. I would first try to login as that user to see if you can replicate it. If yes, you can investigate it directly. If not, it might also be a problem on the user’s site. Like ad-blockers interfering with the page and things like that.
  5. From what I read in that topic, it sound more like browser behaviour than server behaviour. Like those users have the old page still open in their mobile browser in the background and it is not actually reloaded but just put into focus again. Or something like that. But either way, I would reconsider the entire setup. Blocks aren’t meant to be used by active members to see new content. That’s what the /discover/ page is for. I would always put the latter in the main menu to get my active users to open that page as the default entry point.
  6. It can go absolutely everywhere. You just need to activate the Community Hive connection the ACP first. (under Integrations)
  7. What you want to see is this after pasting: That’s all I can say. If that doesn’t happen automatically on your site, something with access to that site needs to investigate it.
  8. Those are just remote images. That’s why it shows the remote URL after posting. The fact that you see the image briefly in the editor is irrelevant. An attachment (which is what you want) would instantly show in the attachment section. That’s what you need to look out for.
  9. That’s how an IPS community works out of the box. But the system doesn’t treat free memberships as a “tier”. The members are just in the default user group without a subscription. And then they optionally choose to buy subscriptions. So you don’t have a free subscription or a paid subscription, you have no subscription or you have a subscription. Trying to add a free tier (i.e. actual subscription) might complicate things unnecessarily. If you don’t need it, don’t do it. The only downside I can think of is that you don’t get that view of having the free membership next to the actual subscriptions.
  10. It’s the same green “Download Invision Community” button under ☞ https://invisioncommunity.com/clientarea/ ☞ Manage Purchase You don’t download Blogs specifically. You download the entire suite which now contains Blogs.
  11. Those templates are fine. I can change the cache rules to exclude all /index.php URLs. That saves the cookies. But I actually found another issue that happens independent of the browser and Cloudflare: When the cookies are accepted on the homepage, it doesn’t forward to the original page but stays at an empty page. I tested it on all my sites and it consistently happens on the ones who have the Discover Feeds as the homepage. The browser URL looks like this and stays on this page: …index.php?app=core&module=system&controller=cookies&do=cookieConsentToggle&ref=aHR0cHM6Ly9zaW5nLnNhbG9u&csrfKey=1303e7ac90e8001c72… It doesn’t happen on my sites that have the Forums or Pages as the homepage. It also doesn’t happen for a specific subfeed like /discover/6, but only if I am on /. You can test this easily on my sites with the .guru and .salon domains. I keep Cloudlare page rules off for the time being.
  12. Yes. My Cloudflare cache rules look like this: (not http.cookie contains "ips4_member_id" and not http.request.uri contains "journal" and not http.request.uri contains "store" and not http.request.uri contains "weekly/?rss" and not http.request.uri contains "rss/" and not http.request.uri contains "login" and not http.request.uri contains "register" and not http.request.uri contains "admin" and not http.request.uri contains "modcp" and not http.request.uri contains "contact" and not http.cookie contains "ips4_IPSSessionAdmin" and not http.request.uri contains "terms")
  13. Your only choice would be to remove the entire byline.
  14. Still the same reason. I doubt IPS will touch that behaviour after having it for the entire 4.x line and with 5.x around the corner. I would “fix” that by not having main menu entries without sub-menus.
  15. There is no hover function on these devices, so you have to click. I wouldn’t expect it any other way.
  16. Yes. If you have 20 articles on the listing page and all use the full-size image, it will load much slower than using thumbnail images of say 600 by 600 pixels.
  17. Even better: Increase the thumbnail size in the database settings. The default is rather small (200x200 pixels). Note: This change only affects new uploads.
  18. Moving between categories is an admin option both on the front- and the back-end. You just click “move”. Changing the publishing date depends on the field “publishing date” being activated in the field settings.
  19. I used the same method. I guess the problem is that those mail providers can just add new domains every week and the block list is never up to date. But I still appreciate the feature. It certainly helps to reduce those registrations.
  20. I had the same experience. It was actually hard to find a temporary email domain that was successfully blocked. But it does work.
  21. I thought so too, but I just tried it here, pasting an image selection from Photoshop and it is actually turned into an attachment as requested. Might not work with every clipboard content, OS and browser though. Don’t know.
  22. You can ignore the modification indication and the default state. That refers to IPS’ default templates, which are irrelevant for custom templates. If you do anything on these screens, you replace the SuperGrid code with the default IPS code. You will hardly ever want that. If you never touched the templates, you can always just upgrade the plugin (carrying the templates) and the templates are updated when needed. You only need to deal with these code comparisons if you manually made change to the templates. In this case, the upgrade will prompt a code comparison where you would need to decide if you want to keep your own lines or have them replaced with the templates in the plugins.
  23. There is a Deleted Content section in the ModCP to do this. However, it only works if the “Permanently delete content” setting in the ACP ist not set to “immediately”.
