  1. Wow, what a spectacularly good memory! Yes, I tweak content to so that English text is shown in Pages if English is selected but Esperanto when the user changes language. There are a couple of different techniques. The one I've used most often is to add some code within the article itself: <h1 class="longer-text"><span>{{if member.language()->id === 1 }}We’re a charity which has the aim of providing education to people in and about Esperanto.{{else}}Ni estas bonfara asocio, kiu celas eduki homojn en Britio, kiuj volas lerni Esperanton.{{endif}}</span></h1&
  2. Yes, but you need to know what the tags are, which makes things a bit challenging. {member_name} doesn't mean anything in this software, which is why it's not working for you. If you want to display a member's name, then you need: {expression="\IPS\Member::loggedIn()->name"} or its shorthand version: {expression="member.name"} I'm afraid I don't know where you can find a list of these expressions. My technique is to look for similar expressions in the templates and then experiment.
  3. I think he's suggesting that the site isn't actually offline but it will appear to be for an affected user. Whilst everyone else is using the site, the unlucky user will occasionally see an offline screen as though the site were genuinely unavailable. It would be offline for him only at that particular time.
  4. Or I suppose you could expect people to track down your blog instead of providing a link to it ... Try .ipsBadge.ipsBadge_style1.ipsPos_right.cBlogCategoryCount { display: none; } in your custom.css.
  5. Most of us can't because we don't have the Blog app. If you post a link to your blog, it should be easy for people to check for you.
  6. There are two approaches which I think you could take: 1) Purchase the Pages app and make that the default app for the suite. Replicate your HTML page there. Your forums will be found at site.com/forums. 2) Move your installation of Invision Community from site.com to site.com/forums. That leaves site.com free for whatever you want to put there. Bear in mind that if you purchase further apps, they'll also be at site.com/forums, so you'll get site.com/forums/gallery, etc, rather than site.com/gallery if you take this approach.
  7. Have you tried clearing the cache? That's the usual solution when this happens. (Support > Something isn't working correctly.)
  8. That's normal: There's a margin-left on the block so that the text doesn't sit underneath the club icon. But the consequence is that when the width is narrow, sometimes the text sits with a margin even though the club icon is not in the space.
  9. I'm disappointed that there was no deadline presented, jair101's request about what it was went unanswered, and now applications aren't being accepted. I suspect that I'm not the only person who would've worked on putting together a CV over the holidays instead of starting it this past weekend had it been made clear that applications would be closing today. A notification of some kind (announcement, comment, edit within the article...) that there was one day remaining to get applications in would've been helpful compared to just closing applications. Perhaps you might consider welcoming a
  10. No, it's outside of Invision Community. A locale is a file stored on your server and accessed by the software.
  11. Lovely: that's sorted out how to set out the joins. Thank you for that. For anybody who is looking to do the same, you preprend the JOIN aliases to the field word_custom in the SELECT part to disambiguate: SELECT p_id AS ID, titleEn.word_custom AS Title, descEn.word_custom AS Description, p_group AS Category, categories.pg_id, categories.pg_parent, catName.word_custom AS Category, parentCat.word_custom AS 'Category Parent', p_stock AS Stock, p_store AS 'On Sale', GBP AS Price, p_discounts AS Discounts, titleEo.word_custom AS Titolo, descEo.word_custom AS Priskribo, from_unixtime(p_dat
  12. I don't know whether there's a way to build conditional logic into the string. It's possible with numbers but the relevant template files know that a logic check is coming and are written differently accordingly. You do have the option here of changing the order of elements, so you could have: %2$s antwortete auf %1$s von/des %3$s in if that sounds fairly natural. That just passes a problem on, though, I think because you'd need to choose between articles depending on the gender of topic/blog post/file etc of whatever %1$s is going to be in a situation. You're probably bes
  13. I'm trying to create a query which will display the items we have for sale, the descriptions, the stock count, and so on. One of the challenges I have is that the site has two languages, so if I want the name of a product, I have to look in core_sys_lang_words: SELECT p_id AS ID, word_custom AS Title, word_custom AS Description, p_group AS Category, p_stock AS Stock, p_store AS 'In Store', GBP AS Price, p_discounts AS Discounts, from_unixtime(p_date_added, '%Y-%d-%m') AS Added, from_unixtime(p_date_updated, '%Y-%d-%m') AS Updated FROM nexus_packages as np LEFT JOIN core_sys_lang_word
  14. It means that only your account will see the strings presented like that. But that's the wrong function anyway: you need the Visual Language Editor, which will allow you to change the string by clicking and holding over it.
