  1. That's exactly where you're supposed to find the settings plugin. There are two files to install. The other file is for the templates.
  2. Correct. And the support team often offers courtesy changes, particularly if you don't have a history of often changing your URL, or the change is on the same domain, such as moving to a subdomain.
  3. The fees and renewal costs pay people's salaries. In return, we get top-class software with frequent updates, plus easy access to support. I don't expect anybody at the firm to work voluntarily, and don't view the renewal costs as unreasonable.
  4. It's nothing to do with robbery and everything to do with disincentivising people who run several licenses but keep all but one inactive, and then change their licensed URL frequently so that they can get support and upgrades without paying for them.
  5. You and others, yep. It would also be helpful if there were some attribute in the body tag which we could target with a CSS selector to hide the "no files uploaded" message.
  6. Woohoo! I love the little messages it gives when you toggle Dark Mode!
  7. It's not that I know much about your language (I'm afraid I don't know anything, although I've been there before), it's just that I'm familiar with languages in general. I haven't often found solutions for my own language, so the mistakes are still in there on my site. I did have the thought that what I could do was to write a plugin to change some of the templates into using new language strings (word_acc, word_gen, word_dat etc) for the various cases. I suppose that might work but it would take a long time to do, especially for someone like me who isn't an experienced coder.
  8. I know what you're saying but it's not going to work if you just list individual language strings every time you find one. It needs to be something much more systematic. The problem you're describing there is a result of our having to define individual words for things like a blog entry, a post, a topic, a file. Those words are then dropped into other strings such as "%s added %s", "%s replied to %s", "%s reacted to %s", and so on. In English, you can just insert those words, which is why the system works. But for our languages, the grammatical role of the thing being inserted changes depending on the construction, and so the word is modified. Several of us have raised these thing in the past but realistically, we're such a small part of the market and the changes would be so intensive, that I think we're not likely to get them in 4.x. Our best bet is probably to hope that IPS in 5.x is open to dropping the approach of inserting a string into various scenarios if English permits this, even though it makes it look inefficient to people looking at the code and thinking that the other approach is better, because they only have English as a reference point.
  9. I know that @Mark is extremely keen on internationalization and that @Matt is the Pages guru, so it probably makes sense to draw their eyes to your suggestion. I think it could solve a lot of persistent problems faced by those of us using different languages.
  10. I initially thought to myself that this couldn't work (we have different numbers of cases and don't all use the same one in the same construction) but having reread your comment, I see now that it doesn't need to be complicated. In your design, each user can add rows and columns as required. I'm fortunate in that I only have two cases, so I would have a small matrix, whereas Russian has several so your grid would be larger. And then we adjust language strings to be something like "User added [x,y]", which would pick out from the grid, in my instance, a singular accusative, and English "a record/an entry" etc. Yes, I really think that could work.
  11. That's not actually an attempt to facilitate internationalisation but something required for English! You can't just add an s to create a plural in English (sheep > sheep, child > children, fly > flies), and the entry for indefinite article is there so that we can indicate whether the word should be preceded by a or an.
  12. He acknowledged that it's possible to do this within Pages Databases, which is what you've shown. He's referring to a standalone Page built with Pages, though. (The names can make life very unclear, unfortunately, so I don't blame you for not quite understanding what he's referring to.)
  13. Thank you for following up on this long-time request, Andy 🙂
  14. The app allows moderators to include or exclude items ...
  15. As though it's any other (external) URL.
