  1. Meddysong's post in How to remove top navigation bar...? was marked as the answer   
    .ipsBreadcrumb_top { display: none; } to your custom CSS should be enough.
  2. Meddysong's post in Forum icon images appear faded and washed out was marked as the answer   
    That's by design. It indicates that there isn't any unread content in that category. It's a visual hint to say "Look here!" if something's been added so that you don't have to check each category just in case. Are you sure you want to disable it?
  3. Meddysong's post in [This Site] Logging in from another account was marked as the answer   
    Got it: sign out here, then go to the Client Area and sign out there too. This will bring up a pop-up for you to log in. Once you've done this, return to the Community, click "Sign in with email", and it will use the details that you logged into the Client Area with.
    There's probably some room for improvement in this process. That was a frustrating few minutes wasted.
  4. Meddysong's post in Move apps from one license to another? was marked as the answer   
    It can't be done automatically but Lindy has very kindly done exactly this for me once as a courtesy. You're a polite, helpful man and a regular contributor here, so I imagine he'd extend the same grace to you too if you submitted a ticket with the request for his attention.
  5. Meddysong's post in Is it possible to use tags on .Pages was marked as the answer   
    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.
  6. Meddysong's post in Any alternative to 'Global Header Message' App for 4.5? was marked as the answer   
    The plugin is defunct now that there is built-in functionality to create announcements, which you can access from the Create menu and the Moderator Control Panel:
  7. Meddysong's post in Font sizes on mobile was marked as the answer   
    That's not quite correct; you're missing { }:
    @media screen and (max-width: 767px) { .ipsType_normal, .ipsType_medium, body { font-size: 17px; } }

  9. Meddysong's post in URL collision with an address from my pre-IPS site was marked as the answer   
    Unfortunately, it's not possible to do this. Reserved words are reserved and stay so. The best work-around is to create a new URL, and then set the htaccess file to redirect from the long-time one to the new one.
  10. Meddysong's post in Customization within the basic IPB interface question was marked as the answer   
    The Guide on the CSS framework is probably the best tool for this:
    It's not possible really to list everything like that. Fortunately, browsers have built-in inspectors which allow you to navigate through your page and see the CSS classes. You can even change elements to see what the result would be if you were to save the change on your site. Here are instructions for Chrome's tools, so that you get an idea: https://developers.google.com/web/tools/chrome-devtools/iterate/inspect-styles/
  11. Meddysong's post in Adding my own variable to every page was marked as the answer   
    Answering my own question, since Marcher explained it to me:
    Adding the variable to globalTemplate is the solution but it needs to have global scope, otherwise it won't be picked up when used in other templates. To do this, the code in globalTemplate should be adjusted to
    {{\IPS\Settings::i()->lingvo = substr(\IPS\Member::loggedIn()->language()->short, 0, 2);}} Then if you want to call, say, a language-specific image in the footer (which is a separate template), it works perfectly.
