  1. That's true. I always appreciate the little courtesies. I think it's probably worth remembering that policies are often what they are to preclude wrongdoers. For example, you have to pay $15 to change your URL if you've already done so within six months. Why? So that people can't costlessly switch domains every time an update comes out and they want to upgrade their several expired sites using their one good license. I suspect something similar is the case here and that IPS, recognising the cases when they're speaking with reputable customers, might be welcoming.
  2. Fewer updates is great. It means there's far greater stability, which means a) we have fewer updates to carry out across our sites and b) the devs get more time to develop new features, such as 4.4, which is coming soon.
  3. He's already made several threads in the past about not knowing how to make his own stylised landing page. I presume this is more of the same.
  4. Yeah, this is a silly complaint. If you have a pre-existing logo, do you really want IPS telling you that you can't use it because it doesn't fit some arbitrary dimensions? Design an appropriate logo and use it. Easy. And I don't see why there's any justification for complaining that they haven't told you what the favicon dimensions are. If you have a favicon (a .ico file), then it's already in appropriate dimensions.
  5. A day off would be nice. I'm supposed to already have stopped work last Tuesday but you know how it is ... I'll be happy with lots of things to read. We'll be going to Lapland with my nephew a couple of days after Christmas, so there'll be lots of downtime because of the four hours of daylight. (The laptop will be coming with me too. There's always work to do!) I enjoy everything about Christmas Day now. Getting up early and just sitting looking at the tree over a cuppa, looking forward to what's coming ahead. There's a novelty breakfast (probably pork pie and port, prawns for the cats), taking my better half to church, then the fun of unwrapping and seeing the surprise on her face when I get something just right. The food's great, the inevitable afternoon nap as a result of eating too much is great, as is being surrounded by books to dip into. I'm looking forward to more of the same.
  6. I remember a couple of years back when @Mark kindly added some new language strings to reflect the fact that many languages don't spell their days or months with capitals. He introduced some strings (they end _c) to force capitals in situations where they would be needed, such as at the start of a sentence. I've noticed on one of my sites that the strings to force uppercase are definitely there: However, the days are still being shown in their lowercase forms: I don't know whether there's anything you could do to pull the relevant data from the locale and then display it as a capital. Or maybe you could decouple it from the locale anyway and use language strings? (I'd love to see the locale cast into oblivion one day, since mine's an uncommon language and uploading the locale causes no end of frustration.)
  7. Thank you, Brandon 🙂 I did submit the same text and graphics as a bug initially but Support politely suggested it might be better as feedback where the devs would see it. I understand from their side this is beyond messing around in the ACP, so absolutely nothing wrong from my side with their suggestion. Thank you for responding so promptly.
  8. Hello! The purchase page indicates that you're working on extending this to Pages. That's potentially great news for me because I'm looking at preventing overly lengthy comments to articles built using Pages. How near do you think you might be to providing a Pages-ready version?
  9. This is all quite topical for us because we've just passed one year of a five-year plan to get our affairs in order such that we can move to the hills of Slovenia. We need to feel that we'in the middle of nowhere and the fact that Slovenia is a mini Europe (Alpine mountains, lakes, coast on the Adriatic) means that we can always drive to a "holiday destination". And it snows in winter, which is perfect! This is the house we saw which made us think "let's do it!" OK, it will have sold by the time we're ready to move but it's more than whetted the appetite! Look at all that isolation! We did a bit more searching on a holiday last summer between Slovakia, Hungary, Croatia and Slovenia and realised that property on the Croatian side of the border seems ridiculously cheap. Since my better half is already very good at Croatian (she watches Croatian comedies and laughs at all the right parts), we may revise the plan and go to the north of Croatia instead. We're on course with all the goals we've set ourselves to make it possible. The one important thing is that I need to have a job where I can work remotely once we go there, since she'll be giving up work after 20 years of stress, so if you're looking to expand the support team ... 😉
  10. Yup. I mean YUP. You come across a lot better in your video. I dare say that all the shouting in your post means that most people won't watch it though. Good luck to you in finding a solution. I haven't had a single spammer but I'm sure it'd drive me up the wall if I did too.
  11. You can see the templates in the page source: https://dne4i5cb88590.cloudfront.net/invisionpower-com/page_objects/buy.css.cd2e119a754fd7c9dfba34e7e66ea0b5.css?v=96374f20bf https://dne4i5cb88590.cloudfront.net/invisionpower-com/page_objects/cloudfaq.js.7dc1fd59301a64654653762568140f58.js
  12. Like most of your clients, I'm not a dev and have no need to play around with theme templates. The only changes I should need to make are by adding things to my custom CSS file. Getting to it is a little bit of a trek, though: click on the "Edit HTML and CSS" icon for my theme, wait for it to load, dismiss globalTemplate, click on the CSS tab, wait for it to load etc. It might be helpful to people if a direct link to that custom CSS file were presented to them. Maybe it could be in the dropdown which starts with Manage Resources. I liken amending my custom CSS to adding something to resources etc, so it doesn't seem to be entirely unrelated. That presents far fewer clicks for the user who receives a tip on this community to "add X to your custom CSS".
  13. I just tested it and it deleted as it should. Hasn't come back after reloading the page. It might be worth you giving details of your browser and OS if it's not working to help the team with their troubleshooting. I'm on Chrome, Windows 10. Edit: But it's not working for me on Android.
  14. Mega! We sell books and Commerce prior to 4.4 is a little bit limiting, certainly compared to what seems plausible soon 🙂
  15. Zao mi je ali ne mislim da ... and that's where I have to stop 😞 If you can't find a translation in the Marketplace then I'm afraid you'll have to create your own, which takes a very long time (as I know from experience!)
  16. Join the, ehem, club. This has been requested over and over again pretty much since the first day that we got to play with Clubs.
  17. On my site I use the Downloads app to upload files which may be relatively large. These include MP3 files of conversations for language learners, scans of old magazines and so on. In order to be able to upload these, I've set a fairly generous upload_max_filesize and post_max_size. Unfortunately for me, that's resulted in users posting images into Forum and Calendar posts which are far larger than they need to be. I understand that I could start users off in member groups with maximum storage limitations imposed or attempt to be very hands-on with messaging people concerned (/removing their attachments and replacing them with appropriate ones) but none of this is ideal. What would be better would be something along the lines of one of the following: An attachment to Downloads can be X mB but in Forums is Y mB Users in group 1 can upload attachments up to X mB but group 2 can only do Y mB. Filetype .pdf can be uploaded up to X mB, .mp3 up to Y mB, and all other files Z mB. Is there scope for introducing something along these lines in a future version rather than the one-size-fits-all approach?
  18. This site is actually two installations of IC. I wonder whether the main page is installation 1 (which has the client area) and not part of the community site (installation 2) which shows notifications.
  19. It seems that @MMXII has the same thoughts that I do: If this were the Forums app or a Pages database, there wouldn't be any problem with a parent category being used as a container. If we do this in Downloads, we end up with an undesirable outcome: In my scenario, I won't be uploading to the parent category. I don't want an invitation to submit the first file and I don't want other people to be informed that I haven't yet submitted a file into the parent category: I've thought about using CSS to hide .cDownloadsCategoryTable but as best I can tell, there's no way to target a specific category so it would be an all or nothing approach:
  20. I'll give that a +1. Such a frustrating part of Downloads and inconsistent with how other apps in the suite are.
  21. ^^ And more feedback. I'd logged out of my alternative account (which uses a different card than my other sites) and back in as this one (the one I actually use) and it nonetheless posted for the earlier session.
  22. He originally mentioned sending emails to billing in an earlier thread. IPS responded that there isn't an email address for billing and asked him which address he'd sent to. He didn't respond to that question. He later claimed to have sent in several support requests but IPS could only find one, from a whopping 13 minutes before.
