  1. Pages SuperGrid support

    Would there be any scope for allowing different Hero image aspect ratios for larger and small screens? Mine's set to 40%, which is great for most screen sizes. But on mobile, that has the effect of using most of my better half's head. If I could set a default of 40% but have the option of something else for small screens, then that would be great. (Typical example here: http://timeofftakeoff.com/holidays/2017/italy-south-2017/day-5-procida/ Watch what happens once viewed on mobile.) I'm looking into hacking it so as not to cause you any trouble but it doesn't look possible because you're testing for the presence of the setting in the record template. It's not something written to CSS which I could override with a media query.
  2. Black Friday Sale!

    Bingo! Been waiting for this. Will be buying on Monday, once the deposit for a car I'm hiring this weekend has been returned
  3. Portal or Similar layout?

    It's worth doing, buddy. Pages is my favourite app. You were saying the other day that you liked my holidays site. That's all done with Pages
  4. It's not possible in Clubs. There aren't any translatable fields for club name and description, unfortunately (and frustratingly).
  5. Here's what Amazon looks like when you're reviewing your order prior to purchase: It would be very handy for us for our customers to have a way of communicating this sort of information to us prior to dispatch, please.
  6. Pages SuperGrid support

    No, it's not normal, unless you're talking about articles which you've posted yourself. Have you looked at somebody else's article? I can leave reputation on my wife's articles but not on my own (because I can't leave myself reputation), so it's worth checking.
  7. Pages SuperTopics (Support Topic)

    That's the forums app set to grid view.
  8. Page Authors - Supporttopic

    I was about to leave you a 5-star review (I'm seriously very happy with this) but I thought rather than make a suggestion in the review, I'd do so here. That way, if you adapt the product to my suggestion, I can mention that in the review too. I love this, I really do. But I've spotted where there might be room for improvement. Let's say I introduce a category with subcategories: - My restricted category - - A subcategory If I don't fill in the names of authors who can write to the subcategory, it assumes that I want to honour the database's specific permissions. So every time I add a subcategory, I'll have to manually add the names of people who can write to its parents. If it were possible, I think a better solution might be that we can either add authors as we currently do, or if it's left blank, the parent's permissions are honoured rather than the database's. Maybe there could even be a toggle to switch between parent or database permissions, though I think the probably scenario is that if you have a restricted parent, you probably don't want to honour the database's general permissions in its children.
  9. Individual Permissions over Databases

    Great! Categories are even better, since I intend to make use of this a lot and don't want to have a billion databases on the site ☺
  10. Individual Permissions over Databases

    Excellent! And just to double-check: it's not limited to just a single member, is it? I could add you, me, my mum etc to a database, rather than be limited to only one of us? (I'm asking because Blogs has a "one member or whole group" approach, unfortunately.)
  11. Individual Permissions over Databases

    You mean you've done a plugin? I'm looking for the same thing.
  12. Move to Slovenia or Croatia. I've lived abroad before (two periods in France, one in Germany) but my much better half has never had that opportunity. Instead she's knuckled down, worked hard, and looks set to be mortgage-free by the time she's 37. She's also very good at Croatian, having started to learn it four or five years ago. She watches their news programmes, laughs at all the right points in the comedy programmes she watches, and reads novels in the language quicker than I can in English. What we've been speaking about recently is paying the mortgage off as soon as possible and then planning to have moved to either Croatia or Slovenia by the time she's 40. I'll be hoping to telecommute, she'll have earned the right to do anything she wants (even if that's nothing at all) after 20 years' doing a job she hates to provide for us, and we'll hopefully be able to make a bit of money renting out rooms, since we're planning on living in total isolation on top of a mountain or by a lake. She was mad keen on writing until she moved in with me, so I'm hoping she'll use her free time over there to give it a go once more and see about potentially getting published. And I'm sure there would be local publishers interested in a native English speaker who could translate from Croatian or Slovenian. The one catch is me finding a job where I can earn a bit of money by telecommuting. I've got six years to work on it Edit: From a purely personal point of view it probably would've been "get published" but I'm currently dealing with that one; the final manuscript is due in in December
  13. Can we get some love for Commerce?

    I had it explained to me by one of the team (I don't remember who) that they don't allow user-submitted content to be translatable because it opens up to problems, which is why I can't create blogs with translated titles any more. I don't know the specifics of the problem (I'm not a techie) but that's what I was informed was the thinking behind the decision. (They seem consistent with it too; if it can be created through the front end (blogs, clubs), it's not translatable. It seems to be only stuff that is created uniquely through the ACP which is.)
  14. QOTW: Let's talk about music

    I don't think you have to be an oldie to think that, @Mark H
  15. Can we get some love for Commerce?

    I don't think you'll get that since IPS don't allow translatable fields on the front end because of associated security risks. What I'm going to do in my case is grant our employee access to the ACP but only for Commerce.
