  1. opentype's post in Missing Text Field was marked as the answer   
    Clear the caches. (ACP/Browser)
  2. opentype's post in Adding New Quote When Editing a Previous Post was marked as the answer   
    Certainly “working as intended”. The quote function is linked to the reply form, not any inline editing form one might be able to open as well. If what is described as “expected behaviour”, one could edit earlier posts and quote texts from posts which were made later on the page. Now that would be weird and only cause confusion. 
  3. opentype's post in Setting up a scroll lock was marked as the answer   
    Wrap the ad code with:
    <div data-ipssticky data-ipssticky-relativeto="#ipsLayout_sidebar"> //the ad </div>  
  4. opentype's post in New User registration - custom message was marked as the answer   
    You could add the language string “username_desc”. It will appear automatically below the choice for the username on the registration form. 
  5. opentype's post in How to display or hide content based on user groups was marked as the answer   
    For an image, I would probably just check the user group with PHP and then load an image with that user group as file name. 
    {{if \IPS\Member::loggedIn()->member_group_id}} {{$group_id = \IPS\Member::loggedIn()->member_group_id}} <img src="https://myserver.com/assets/group_{$group_id}}.jpg"> {{endif}} Then just upload the images: group_5.jpg, group_6.jpg, group_7.jpg. 
    Pay attention to caching as well. If the block is cached for all user groups, users would see the wrong images regardless of the PHP check. 
    The same method could be used to load different blocks based on user groups. It doesn’t have be separate pages. 
  6. opentype's post in Background processing after conversion horrible, horrible slow was marked as the answer   
    You could always run it from the ACP in the browser. 
  7. opentype's post in Is there a under construction option under IPB Pages (partial) was marked as the answer   
    I am not really sure what you are asking. There is no dedicated “under construction” function. But by definition, Pages allows you to put arbitrary content on a page, and that would include “under construction messages” you might want to show. You can also use the permission system for this. So, you could work on content you hide from everyone but your admin group, while every group other than “admins” would see your “under construction” message. 
  8. opentype's post in How to enable topic overview inside topic was marked as the answer   
    ACP → Community → Forums → Settings → Forum Settings → Topic Summary Settings
  9. opentype's post in Editing forum posts that are duplicates of page articles was marked as the answer   
    That from a Yes/No field which shows for everyone except the premium group. I have a detailed description but that is part of my own premium offers. 😉
  10. opentype's post in Can I add content below my profile picture to the left of my posts? was marked as the answer   
    Yeah, this can be done. Put the new field to “Member can edit”. Go to your profile and put something in that field. It can be anything. Like the word “Something”. It just needs to register content. 
    Then turn off “Member can edit” again, so no one will have access that field. 
    Now set the forum output to “custom” and just put your HTML in the box for “Custom topic formatting”. 
    You also need to deal with the profile output. Either put your banner in there too or just put in a space or something so it overrides the regular output. Otherwise it will show the “something”. 
  11. opentype's post in Commerce Help - zero in stock was marked as the answer   
    The number relates to the current selection, even if it is the default selection. 
  12. opentype's post in Similar Content Box Not Showing At Bottom Of Topics was marked as the answer   
    It might simply not have content to show. The old method to feed this widget is tags. So when there are no matching tags, nothing shows. 
  13. opentype's post in Record Publish Date in Pages Database Table - can't understand was marked as the answer   
  14. opentype's post in How to customise the registration form was marked as the answer   
    It’s a setting in the ACP. Put “newsletter” in the ACP search to get to it. 
  15. opentype's post in EU VAT validation doesn't work anymore was marked as the answer   
    There was a patch for that this week.

  17. opentype's post in Login to Backend does not work after I activated https was marked as the answer   
    You need to force it within the IPS software, not from the hosting setup.

  19. opentype's post in Promoted content language strings was marked as the answer   
    Thanks. That helped. 
    It turned out to be “promote_metadescription_container_nolink”
  20. opentype's post in Pages as default, articles I don't want as default was marked as the answer   
    You choose a default page under ACP → Pages → Pages

  21. opentype's post in Cant edit database records "Oops! No permission" Error code: 2T252/D was marked as the answer   
    Who’s records should they edit? Because for other people’s records, there are just two choices:
    you make those members admins you turn on the Wiki functionality Otherwise members will only be able to edit their own records, if the permissions are granted and it is turned on for the database:

    This might also be of interest:
  22. opentype's post in Is it possible to move the block positions? was marked as the answer   
    You can’t change the default block position this way. Those are containers with templates executed within them. Moving the containers couldn’t do anything to stuff inside them. 
    But if you create what you need in those slots as a Pages block, you can then inject it at any place you want in the theme templates. 
  23. opentype's post in How to upload required file to Apple Pay was marked as the answer   
    I wrote an article about it a while ago. 
  24. opentype's post in Lost page after "Could not save block data" was marked as the answer   
    Tip: Create the block in the ACP as Pages block. That way, nothing you do on the front-end can kill it. 
  25. opentype's post in Bypass "Select a forum" when clicking Start New Topic button on home page? was marked as the answer   
    Only by customizing your theme templates. The link for the button is generated in the index -> index template.
