    The 4.6 release now moves all existing custom titles to a new custom field.

    jair101 reacted to SeNioR- in Has member title been removed?   
    I just moved the members' titles to the custom field.
    Just create a new text field with a maximum length of 65 characters.

    My field has the ID 7. In the query, change the field ID to yours.
    Additionally, add a prefix before the tables, if you have one.
    Make an SQL query
    UPDATE core_pfields_content t1 INNER JOIN core_members t2 ON t1.member_id = t2.member_id SET t1.field_7 = t2.member_title; Caution.
    You do everything on your own accountability.
    Before executing the SQL query, make a backup copy of the database just in case.

    Custom member titles are part of the profile identify, please make sure there is an option we can preserve them somehow. I guess the query to copy them from member title to profile field shouldn't be overly complicated, can someone from the expirienced devs advise on that?

    Going a step further, the invoice pdf can be sent as attachment via email, this is becoming a standard as it can be easily forwarded to the relevant department or event automated:

    We have a very tight anti spam defense. Almost all the new registrations are legit. Out of 46 people who registered today, two were flagged in one way or another, and maybe one or two others have a slightly iffy email address.

    jair101 got a reaction from liquidfractal in IPB native Points System (IP.Subeconomies? IP.Points?)   
    Just check the popularity on the point systems. There are a few on the marketplace (you hardly see any competition with multiple mods with the same purpose) and the one linked above has close to 300 purchases (very high for a paid addon) and its price tag is not insignificant.
    Seriously, you can hardly expect more definite proof on "generated enough interest". Now, if you are looking for a way to politely deny the request for the time being as the priorities are different, thats fine. But there is enough interest and it is proven, IPS don't need to wait for that.

    jair101 got a reaction from Joel R in Translating the community without translating the ACP ?   
    As you are English native it is understandable to have these questions, probably the reason IPS decided to "simplify" it by merging everything together. But for all users with translated communities the effect on this is huge. The main reasons are:
    1. Much less effort in translating. Translating the software takes a lot of time and is mindbogglingly boring. Like really. Trust me. As most communities have only 1 or 2 people with ACP access and usually technically apt people have also reasonable English, it is not necessary to have the English in the backend as well. So reason number 1 - having the strings separate saves you a lot from translating strings that no end user will ever see. 
    2. Not sure how it is for other languages, but for mine, it is much easier to communicate technical terms in English. Sure, we do have localization on windows, android, all major pieces of software, but it is much easier for me to keep it in English as I have learned what this button does and what this label actually means in English. This brings two benefits:
    - first I know what IPS is talking about when they say for example "Admin control panel notifications are improved", if I have "admin control panel" and "notifications" in my language, it is more difficult for me to realize what they are saying. 
    - I can easily communicate back to them using the same terms. If I have ACP translated, I will have to translate back when asking for support and the back translation won't always be accurate. For example "notifications" can be translated in my language and when I translate it back it might be "news" or something like that. If I raise a support ticket "My news are not working", you can see there will be tons of confusion and my example is extremely simple. 
    Really, even with simple and mundane buttons like copy/paste/cancel, you might have issues once they are localized. Even if I had a free professional ACP translation provided to me for free, I would still prefer to keep it in English. 
    Hope this clarifies it.

    jair101 reacted to Morrigan in Translating the community without translating the ACP ?   
    That's totally fair. I was just curious, I figure some people prefer that they have their stuff in their native language so translating everything is better for them overall.
    Your reasoning is equally as fair.
    Biggest thing is to avoid anything that says "ACP" in it. that will eliminate 20 pages for you to translate.

    jair101 got a reaction from sobrenome in Pages in Clubs?   
    I think most of the discussion here is focused around Pages as an app, not pages as landing, ad, etc. I.e. most people hope for full IPS.Pages app functionality - databases, custom fields, view templates, etc. I think this clarification needs to be made to avoid someone purchasing your app and in result not receive what he is expecting.

    jair101 reacted to Nathan Explosion in (NE) Topic Summary - Images Controls   
    For reference, the Topic Summary itself fetches an array containing ALL the information about the images in a topic (not the images themselves, just the information about them) and then they slice the top 4 (the first 4) out of that array to then process for display. I randomise the array that they initially fetch, and I've written it in a way that shouldn't cause any major issues (you can see the method I've used here) - however I haven't tested with thousands of images (just a few hundred, at this time).
    Keep in mind: if the number of images to display is increased from the default 4, then obviously that increases the content that then has to be displayed in the browser.

    jair101 got a reaction from AlexJ in IPS Rules Application   
    While Zapier will help, it will probably replace not more then 5% of the functionality of this app, at least in the beginning. 
    - Can't mass message/notify your memberbase, zapier pricing skyrockets after 2k tasks
    - Doesn't have the custom data fields that Rules has. 
    - It will be at least few years until it can even remotely match the available in Rules trigger/conditions/actions. 

    So yeah, it is the next best thing, but it is very far from being able to challenge it.

    jair101 reacted to Runar in Highlight featured topics in Activity streams   
    There might be plugins providing this functionality, but it's quite easy to achieve yourself by simply editing your theme.
    In your theme, find the file forums > front > forums > topicRow and add the following inside the class attribute on line 50 (the <li> element):
    {{if $row->mapped('featured')}}customFeatured{{endif}} Then, edit your custom.css file to set a background color for the new customFeatured class:
    .customFeatured { background-color: pink; } This should give all featured topics a nice background color.

    jair101 got a reaction from Silnei L Andrade in User lost followers after upgrading to 4.5   
    I assume it has to do with a question asked during the upgrade. Followers and followed content takes a lot of db space, so the question was whether you want to prune some of the data based on IPS defaults or you want to set the settings yourself. I assume you clicked through to do it the IPS way.
    If it is any consolation, the removed followers were probably inactive for very long on your board.

    jair101 reacted to Makoto in Radical Tags   
    As far as I'm aware AT&P has been abandoned and still has a number of compatibility issues and bugs with 4.4 that were never addressed after being taken over by another developer, so I wouldn't advise even trying to upgrade to 4.5 with it enabled.
    You can perform a migration from AT&P to RT on IPS 4.4 and then uninstall AT&P once you confirm everything has been migrated properly. If you'd like me to do this for you, I can do so free of charge as a one-time service, just send me a PM here to set up a time to have that done.

    jair101 got a reaction from Derzhis in 4.5 stock images need to be more prominent   
    One of the new features I am most excited about is the ability to attach free stock images to the post. It took me a while to find that this is buried deep in "Other Media->Insert a stock photo". There is absolutely no way I can communicate that properly to my members and you know the saying (rephrasing/butchering it probably): "If you need to explain your user interface, you have a bad user interface".
    For all years since 4.x is live I never ever looked and used this menu and I believe neither most of my members. Can the options be spread throughout the upload bar instead:
