  1. Ah okay. So basically, you removed the marketplace store front and embedded it into the suite to install, but left the functionality for manual installs if people so choose of their own resources or from people who offer resources on their own personal sites instead of the marketplace (hardly anyone does that these days, except for themes like Ehrens)
  2. @Stuart Silvester I’m behind by sometime, so I’m sure it was answered elsewhere, but will there still be an option for manual installs? Or will everything be housed in the ‘cloud’ basically?
  3. What about actually adjusting the fields and or record views with little coding? For example, I want to create a quick custom form for 'incidents'. Below is the default view in the record with fields displayed. So for me to make this look like a proper form, I have to go and edit the entire record template to get it to properly look like a form. My suggestion still stands since day one where I was pretty savvy with IP.Content is that IPS should probably offer some out of the box templates. Right now, for 90% of users, it's too much work and requires too much coding knowledge to
  4. I didn't classify it as an issue, just ideas/suggestions. I don't want to spam suggestions and get them entangled with actual issues.
  5. Where can we send mobile/UI suggestions/improvements? For example, adding swipe in from left or right for extended functionality/features or minor things such as when you click on your icon, it opens from left despite icon being on the right (should probably open from right side like it does on IPS main page as well)
  6. Looks good. Nice work for a free theme! Better than anything Design Shopz puts out and his are all mostly 'paid' themes and can mostly be achieved with the inline theme editor buttons. 😂
  7. I'm not too happy with Samsung right now. I recently lost my NAS and moved all my most important files onto a 512gb Samsung 850 evo and it randomly failed. I literally lost everything important to me. Soo, I'm going to boycott Samsung because of it. Just a personal opinion. I do have a 970 pro that's running like a champ. But I think I'm going to invest in a higher state raid array of slow discs with a nightly image backup I can deploy if my M2 drive fails on me. Just so odd that an SSD failed and I only had it for a little over a year. Sure, I can get the drive replaced, but I still lost
  8. I like the idea. In our case, we have 2 big groups with a lot of granular control. One group is essentially posting advertisements, the other group is essentially following said people posting the ads. We can convert the follow feature into a paid/vip only feature rather than making it site wide which is only useful to one specific group anyways.
  9. All of this can be done with the custom fields. The ones listed are just examples out of the box. Discord profile can simply be a custom field with the icon and the information.
  10. If I had my pick, which we can discuss offline as well. I like discourse as a well rounded option out of the box. What features were taken away from desktop viewers that you can’t get added back in? Node is something that’s out of the box, powerful in design, but basic in feature set. It’s economy is developer friendly and works well in other applications that have a great approach to mobile first while keeping the footprint small. Here are a couple of my 0.02c IPS is a great ‘forum’ but that’s about all. Anything else added on top are cherries. I have no complaints about the forum aspect
  11. Yes, this This is why I actually like Node and a reason I do like nodebb in many cases to clients. It definitely doesn't have all the features that IPS has, but it's much easier to build said features that are missing in node, and much easier to find developers if you need to. It's 'mostly' designed as a mobile designed with keeping more support for mobile devices than what IPS has as the software was designed for more or less phones and scaled up. It's also much much faster out of the box. Though, again - like anything else we pick... has its pro's and con's.
  12. It'll be less than even that. However, it's still the most 'optimal' for the 3xxx series. Your 3200 should be just fine. Have you thought about just overclocking it to 3600? You will have to increase your latency, but should be easy to pull off.
  13. You can go ahead and call me out as if I don't know what a mobile first approach is. Here: https://www.uxpin.com/studio/blog/a-hands-on-guide-to-mobile-first-design/ Read it. Over and over again. This approach doesn't matter if it's a mobile theme or a responsive site - it is simply DESIGNING your site, approaching how to display the content etc while scaling up. Not the other way around. This is irrelevant to HOW you get to it. IPS is using the graceful degredation method in UI/UX design. I can't take you anymore, I've only ever blocked one person from here. Now you make #2 - you la
  14. Yes. Exactly. Now you take those 2 highlighted bullets and lets focus on the 2nd one. This one: How would you approach the responsive design? IPS is responsive, any widely adopted somewhat modern post 2011-2012 sites following 'responsive' design do this. The question is. Do you design your UI/UX for the lowest common denominator for your feature set, or do you scale down removing features as you go? Or do you find a balance? In 2014ish or whenever IPS 4 was released and released a responsive framework, it focused on Desktop class browsing and then the smaller your screen g
  15. That's because you edit or I don't care to go back and finding it. You mentioned something "about my past here" along the lines of "Given your past here" something like that. Look, I'm done - no point in debating with you. You're not worth my time. 🙂
  16. Chris, feel free to PM me and I'll discuss with you competitive ideas. As it really depends on what your community is geared for and what you're trying to do. In many cases depending on the niche, I will recommend IPS depending on needs. Like I said, it's not that I don't like IPS - but when someone comes to me asking for something more mobile specific for their users and want to extend the functionality. It's hard to do so in many cases.
  17. I promise, I have no beef with him. I don't even know who he is. Somehow he knows me, or something. And talks about my past here, which was never bad. I was always up for debates and I'm passionate about my work, but hey it is what it is. I've said all I need to say in regards to what proof I have to offer. Do with it and what happens. I'm not losing any sleep on it lol. Trust me, I understand. I only offered suggestions in my original thread. It kind of got derailed debating about what is and isn't a mobile device. Lindy is a smart man - I have faith that IPS will hopefully m
  18. Here, let me break this down for you, simpleton and then I'll be done replying to you. I have said all I need to say. We're not getting any feedback with the debating. And you still fail to comprehend what the suggestions are for anyways as you keep focusing on something that is irrelevant here. 1. Yes I do - What this meant is when you browse MOST "optimized" websites, they have a MOBILE theme, are responsive or they just don't have any support. MOBILE devices will be selected for the mobile theme. Hence why you can open a page and then "Request desktop view" in all browsers in or
  19. I think you should research that much more. It wasn’t until iPad OS where desktop views were standard eg, last 5 months. Android tablets (which makes up only 25% of tablets for web consumption ) were still “mobile” in browsing experiences. This means that when a tablet went to site abc.com they were prioritized with a mobile experience. In fact they still are, even with latest tablets that have the technology to run sites fine. Most sites will detect the OS and then render the site base on the experience. If it’s just a responsive site cough like IPS cough. Then it’s just a respon
  20. So roughly 76% for mobile use, if you lump mobile with tablet and phablet?
  21. Not sure about the application aspect. What I did with one community is wrap IPS inside a mobile framework (I think it was ionic) and then redesigned the front-end to be mobile first approached. So really, the end user couldn’t tell if it was an application or a website. That’s the best of both worlds. I have a feeling that this is somewhat similar to the approach IPS will take for the communities here. Provide an application that users can download and then ‘load’ a website into it or something. I’m not sure. I have not looked into anything IPS in the past several years, really. Not too
  22. Apps just open the door for niche markets and unique branding. I don’t personally care for it, I may or may not use it. The point of apps is that it’s still what a vast majority of users have access too, familiar with and can introduce unique features that even mobile views don’t support. really, deeper integration. I’m excited to see that, but I would still like enhanced mobile views to hold over.
  23. Here is an example that I’m talking about. Right now, I’m posting this reply from my phone. this paragraph did not auto capitalize. I had to swipe up on my iPhone about 8x to reach the bottom of the page to click the reply button. even though I read the entire thread except your last post, Sonya I was taken to the very top of the page, which caused uncesessary scrolling. as I’m typing, I have to scroll down more to click the post reply button. some easy improvements: take you to last reply. It is hit or miss. Add a feature similar to how flarum has it, where y
