  1. So we have this problem in our community where we developed a "dark mode" template for members who just prefer things that way, whether it is easy on the eyes or to save battery on their mobile devices. However, we've run into this conundrum and cannot seem to fix it.... We have "Paste behavior" set to Rich Text with giving the members the option to paste as Plan Text instead. If a member copies text that was originally designated as black and pastes it into the his post, the black text color attribute carries over into the post as part of that Rich Text. Members who use our dark mode template, in which the content area is black, will not see any quoted text, because it matches the background. Obviously, we could change "Past as Rich Text" always to "Paste as Plain Text" always, and we did that, then got a fair amount of complaints, so we switched it back. It's now an issue of a small amount of dark theme lovers vs the small amount of paste-as-rich-text lovers. If we could retain the Rich Text but strip away the text color attribute that would be perfect. We just need all text to be "default" so that it shows up dark on the white background and as light on the dark background. It there a way to make this happen by modifying something in the Invision code or the CK Editor code?
  2. Is there any way to make it so that my members can choose between Public or Registered Members Only? By allowing the Administrators only option, my regular members cannot respond to status updates because these take you to the profile page.
  3. Apparently @Fosters had abandoned this project.
  4. Our site is jwtalk.net but the 4 blocks containing the feeds (topics, articles, files, and gallery [25 images]) are not displaying - as I've changed the permissions so that no membergroup at all can see them. When they are enabled, the site is crazy slow. When I disable them, it goes back to being fast loading. No. Okay, that's interesting. Do you get a lot of traffic? Are the feeds created on the fly on each page load? Do you have a large database? My database is large and I get significant traffic. What I didn't do was try to isolate which of the 4 blocks were causing the problem. I can play with that this weekend and report back. @TAMAN
  5. So I purchased this app and took a great deal of time designing my footer and was really impressed with it's visual appeal, however, upon making it visible to everyone my site become unbearably slow, sLoW, SLOW! I actually contacted my host because it seemed like a connection problem (connection timed out) and we tweaked a few things, blocked all bots besides Google, Bing, Yahoo, and DuckDuckGo, etc, and nothing would improve the sudden sluggishness of the site. I finally isolated it to the Advance Footer. Row 1 had 3 blocks, a topic feed, a files feed, and an articles feed. Row 2 was a gallery feed with 25 images, and then rows 3 and 4 were just textual information and quick links. I removed all the feeds, and now my site is lightning fast in comparison. I'm assuming with each page view, the footer would have to check and see if all the feeds were up to date, and maybe even load the full size images and scale them down (probably not working with the new lazy-loading feature of IPS 4.4 either). Would it be possible to just have the footer refresh that information, say once an hour, and then cache it? The feeds gave my footer some meat. Now it's just text that I could have handcoded myself instead of paying $20 for the app.
  6. This is interesting. I too think it would be beneficial to have push notifications. I would think that a simple app that could display push notifications and then open links in a browser would be fairly easy to accomplish. However, I have never got my feet wet with Android or iOS.
  7. This is already something you can do natively within IPS. Go to AdminCP -> Site Features -> Applications -> System -> Profiles.... click the lock icon, and uncheck the group that should not be able to see profiles (like "Guests" for instance). In the meantime, I should be able to accomplish this with a template edit, right? I want a member to be able to select between "All" and "Members Only" but leave off the "Admin only" option.
  8. Sweet! Thank you. I'll update my plugin later today and check it out.
  9. After some more investigating, coupled with your answer, there is a conflict between your plugin and the new 'Post before registering' feature of IPS 4.4 I've been having a problem with Guests being able to post, even though Guest posting is disabled on all my forums. The 'Post before registering' field asks for a Display Name instead of an email address, like so.... (I originally filed a support ticket with Invision and provided them with this image) SO.... I just disabled all customizations, plugins, and applications and re-enabled them one by one and found that "Dead Topic Protection" is indeed where the bug is. Dead Topic Protection is allowing guests to post without registering at all, bypassing the new "Post before registering" feature. (Your plugin changes "Enter an email address" into "Enter a Display Name" instead) Dead Topic Protection prevents logged in members from resurrecting old topics, but guests, who shouldn't be able to post anyway, can reply to old topics that should be locked (apparently because Guest hasn't been an option since 3.2, but now with 4.4 maybe it should be). I don't know if adding Guest as an option would be the easy solution, or if they would still see the 'Join the conversation and post now' message but see no editor, lol. I hope this was clear enough. Sincerely, - Bob
  10. This seems to be either incompatible with the new "Post before registering" feature of IPS 4.4, OR there is a glaring oversight in that you cannot choose the Guest membergroup in the plugin's settings.
  11. Tapatalk is compatible with our forums. I have several members who use it. In reality, all we need out of an Android or iOS app is something that would sync notifications. Clicking on the notification would open up the browser for all I care.
  12. Ah I get it. And I should have paid better attention to the screencap he provided as well. Yes, it would be practical for quotes to go to the posting being edited while editing is enabled. That would save time over copy and pasting things manually.
  13. You can edit the quote once it appears in the Editor (i.e. "reply field").
  14. Then edit your template and put the button in the header or the user menu. I actually really like this idea. When our community is done developing our dark theme, I'll look at placing it in a more convenient area instead of in the footer.
  15. I snagged that. Thank you. The Editor Toolbar was giving me trouble. I kept trying to change the color of the icons but wasn't happy with the results. Then I tried uploading other CKEditor Skins and they weren't all that great either. My approach to the above has been to create my own CKEditor Skin and edit the CSS of those, then Import it. The icons will really help.
