    Thank you for the PM the patch works great thanks
  2. Videos Support

    Yes I have FTP access so would appreciate the patch.
  3. Videos Support

    Fantastic that works great - maybe this should be added as a setting in a future version rather than being hard coded? To perfect my video system can you help with one thing that you helped me change in 3.4.X. On an individual video page I want the feed block to display the other videos from within that particular category rather than list videos from all categories or videos one or more specific categories? Thanks in anticipation
  4. Videos Support

    My video description text is only approx six lines long so I would like to remove the 'Read more...' and always have the description text full expanded. Can you let me know if this is possible and how to achieve it? Many thanks
  5. Generate profile photos

    HI Adlago Recently I realised just how heavy my Invison Pages based homepage is and was really shocked. I agree with Adlago that the issue of the icon sizes must really be looked at and improved. I consider it so but others may well consider it 'by design'. To further illustrate the issue https://invisioncommunity.com/forums/ weighs in at a hefty 7.46MB .... ouch! Best regards Nick
  6. Hi My organisation has a central administrative postal address and engage a separate dispatch company for commerce goods fulfilment. As a result there is a specific email address shop@ and a separate postal address for shop dispatch and goods returns. One feature I was shocked to see seems to have gone AWOL between 3.4.x and 4.X is the ability to specify a separate outgoing shop email address. The separation of suite/billing/support email addresses was added to IP.Nexus in May 2013 Minor Workflow Enhancements in IP.Nexus 1.5.8 and needs re-implementing in 4.x. In addition it should also be possible to separately define the commerce postal address when one is needed. This should then be used on the invoices and as the footer in shop related email notifications. The currently restrictive implementation is such that: Site name: Used in the site header and email template footer Physical address: Used in the site header and email template footer and privacy statement Copyright: Copyright appears on site footer Outgoing email address: Emails sent from to members will appear as being sent from this address My current workaround is to remove the physical address from the email template footer and suffer the indignity of a no-reply@ email as the outgoing shop email address. I hope commerce can be improved and go from strength to strength. Best regards Nick
  7. Broken images in emails

    Hi Images are included in a range of emails sent by the suite such as a commerce invoice and refund emails (product images) and also general notification emails such as calendar events, followed topics etc (profile photos). When a newer profile image (avatar) or an improved product photo are updated all previously sent emails display the 'broken image symbol' and do not display the new current image. From a user perspective the product has not changed or in the case of the profile photo the person has not changed, just the image has been updated! Overall this provides a really poor user experience as users may frequently check back on recent emails such as recent commerce invoice emails. Currently when you upload a new profile photo (avatar) this is not always going to keep the same filename as the previous one and same with product images, etc... For example an initial email image may be loaded as http://www.yoursite.com/forum/uploads/profile/photo-thumb-401.png but when changed it may become http://www.yoursite.com/forum/uploads/monthly_2017_09/F.png.088b7ed12903c286b9aaa7a28ca6bfb0.png To prove the point in the second screenshot the new image is made to replaces the broken image icon by copying the parachute image to the previous image filename. If fixed filenames were maintained for profile images and product images instead of changing the filename the integrity of the image display in emails could be maintained. I have raised this issue with support and they confirm that 'By the current design when a new image is uploaded the old is removed so any links to that static old URL would no longer work.'. They also suggested as this is a new feature request to change how the system is current designed to suggest this change by posting it here. Please provide feedback on this request and whether the current design should be corrected by IPS suggested? Best regards Nick
  8. Pages: default sort order for categories

    Thank you opentype for your fast response and pointing that out. I had forgotten about that field option and indeed it is evidently why my categories are ordered by title! Is anyone able to show me how to add "by views" to pages categories? As mentioned it is already a sort option in Downloads? Cheers Nick
  9. Hi I am really loving the the Pages app and have created a great website making good use of categories, category listings and per category images. However currently one rather sad IPS4 omission is that there is no ability to define a default sort order within the Pages app for articles listed in a category. Currently it looks to be a hard coded default to sort by title only, whereas I need sort by views so the most popular articles feature at the top of the listing. Unfortunately the only configuration available within Pages is at the database level to sort homepage articles and even then views is not one of the options. Interestingly in the Downloads app the default sort order of each category display can be set to Views/Most reviewed/Highest rated etc. @anyone Can you provide a template edit or even better a plugin to add a per category default sort order to Pages? I would be eternally indebted to you. @Invision Could this improvement be added to the roadmap and consistency provided across the apps so a full set of consistent defaults are available? Thanks in anticipation Nick
  10. Advanced Footer [ Support topic ]

    Hi The advanced footer is great and I have recently added it to my site. One small issue I have found is that when I add staff member in alphabetical order they are displayed the first time correctly, however whenever I change any config in the plugin and save it, the order changes to be on what looks likely to be member_id order. To display them in alphabetical order again it is necessary to delete them all add them all again and save, which works until the next config change. Is it possible to fix this? Many thanks Nick
  11. Change Event Author

    Hi Adriano This little plugin fills a much needed gap but could you enhance it so that a set of specified member groups can also change event authors? In addition to admins I need an editorial group and moderator group to be able to change authors. Many thanks Nick
  12. Hi Invision Version 4.2.4 is slated as a maintenance release however it seems Invision continue to maintain the policy of keeping their customers in the dark with the changes. According to the theme comparison tool there are a number of under the hood theme change and have yet to install the release on my pre-production server to discover what these and any other changes in the release are. It would also be really useful to know what is in each release, rather than having to trawl through blog posts to uncover new features and changes. The 4.x news blogs were excellent but now it is quite hard to see what features were introduced in 4.1 and 4.2 release which really needs from being consolidated somewhere. I understand the resistance to a bug tracker but how about a feature and changes tracker that is linked to the Release notes? I only came across the tool by chance and I am sure a large number of customers may not know about it and it is quite important. I wonder what your usage statistics for the tool tell you on the customer base that has used it? It is not mentioned in the installation and upgrade guide and the only place I believe it is mentioned in an 4.1 upgrade prep article (an this post of course!) but you might like to add it to the relevant documents.. In the current arrangement could the release notes state 'Theme changes' with a link to the tool as this would alert customers to the fact the theme has changed as "4.2.4 is a maintenance release that fixes issues identified in 4.2.3."does not imply theme changes have been made. Keep up the good work Nick
  13. Cookie Notice

    Apologies, I realised 3.0.1 was installed so removed and re-installed 3.0.5 which fixed the issue. Weird I know, might have been an interaction with another plugin or something.
  14. Cookie Notice

    Thank you for picking this up so quickly. I can confirm that the demos at that link all work fine on the ipad
  15. Cookie Notice

    I have noticed that on an iPad (ios 9.3.5) the cookie notice works in Safari but a strange message is displayed in Chrome and Firefox. It continues to appear with Request Desktop Site, although it appears as a footer message. I understand the wording may be that used as a Facebook JavaScript Console Warning? Any assistance with this will be most welcome. Thanks Nick
