  1. I am testing it. I would prefer not to disable image cache as i have these pictures in blocks at the home page and it would slow it down. Let's see what happens in the next days. Thank you! I didn't know i could select the image... I've done it and for now it is working, but i'll wait a couple of days to see if the image is kept working.
  2. @Morrigan thanks, you were way more helpful 🙂 i didn't know that detail of the menu values.
  3. Be careful with that. If you do that, you don't get the "active" css class assigned that formats the menu differently when the menu is active. I've submitted a ticket but @Marc Stridgen refused to validate that as something that needed to be corrected. He says that is a "feature" and there's nothing wrong with that. Which i, with all respect, disagree. The only remedy in the face of the refusal of IPS to solve this is to develop a javascript snippet to insert icons for each particular menu.
  4. There is some kind of bug when you have IP pages creating forum topic when new article is posted. The article photo will also be present at the first topic post, with a link to the article. Topic Thumbnail detects it and shows it for some time. But for some reason, after some time it starts pointing to a non-existent photo, throwing a 404 error as the picture doesn't exist. If i try to manualy edit the thumbnail at Topic Thumbnail (the dialog where you choose if you want to upload an image or use the topic thumb) it automatically shows the photo of the topic: Yet if
  5. Sorry i couldnt pass the difficult CAPTCHA challenge twice so i cant visit your site 😞 Why so many barriers to Access a site? Do you have that many users that you can afford to lose them by boring them with dificult CAPTCHA callenges?
  6. Very nice visuals and programming. I can see you have put a lot of effort and skills, congrats! I find the advertisement a bit over the top (ex: two stacked horizontals??), even if the adblocker dialog promises it is not that intrusive.
  7. I will be launching a new community in a couple of weeks. It is highly reliant on Pages, and it is still pretty much work in progress: https://artofsmart.com
  8. Hi, i was suprised as it is now possible to get a thumb image from an entry from the blog. The DB contains the ENTRY_COVER_PHOTO field but it is for the full image. If i want to create a block for the blog entries, my only option is to set as the src of the <img> tag the full image: {file="$entry->cover_photo" extension="blog_Entries"}" This, obviously is not effective for, let's say, front page blocks, because i get the full images to fit in small divs (100px or so). Efficiency achievements could be achieved by generating thumbs for the images, as you already do in Pages
  9. Hi, i am thinking on buying Stratagem. I have some questions, as for the screenshots i can't still understand how exactly the app works: What is exactly the relationship with the clubs app? Can a project be created inside a club and appear as new tab in it? Or it is the other way around, i.e., you can create a club inside of a project? Are there plans for an integration with MS Teams? I know it supports slack, but Teams is now the king in the field... Can the sockets be implemented in my own server, or it is a remote service only? Regards
  10. I am onboard with IPS for long, and here is my positive feedback on the current state of the nation: - I love the strategy of moving from Pure forum to communities, with a tightly integrantes set of apps. This was a crucial move that allowed IPS to escape from the fierce competitivo on a shrinking market. As everybody knows, fóruns are disappearing, yet people are still getting together. This is why i prefer IPS package Over XF ir VB because there is a whole set of tightly packed tools to get my people collaborating. - I love the new theme. "Oh it's too white" "oh só much whit
  11. I do not know how you can be so sure... i am always a man full of doubts, i am always amazed when someone makes such bold assertions. I can't agree with you here, sorry. When i look at XF, it is only good at classic forum software. But classic forums are "no more" and they are dying. IPS has followed a different strategy, and imho, a right strategy, of putting a set of tighly coupled apps for community management. The other company that has been following that approach (but they have always taken that direction is Wolt Lab with corporate customers, still, they are lagging behind IPS in
  12. They can do what they like except for violating the conditions which they and their useds abode when buying the license.
  13. That is true for the cloud version, but not to the on premise version.
  14. Totally agree. You buy an APP, you retain the right to use it, regardless of having an active IPS licence.
  15. I would start by overriding the CSS custom properties at the custom.css (ex: divide their value by 4)
  16. Good point. I agree, it can, but this is not an undeniable statement... so they used "can" to express possibility. Sey have reviewed their stance on it. It really depends on each case, and that has also to be balanced with aesthethics, text clearness, element organization and placement. And if you have a big screen, too much content can be really overwhelming. Still, you can always customize the theme to reduce the spacing if you want.
  17. Of course everyone is allowed. Opinions are the source of a good discussion, specially when they oppose each other. You don't like the white spacing as it is, it is a perfectly reasonable opinion. I like it and i think this theme is a nice improvement over the previous one - also a perfecly reasonable opinion. Now, i wouldn't like the white spacing to be reversed or shrunk. First, because i my opinion is exactly opposite (fair enough, i guess 😄 ), and second, because there is not any objective data to support the opinion that shrinking the white space would improve the interaction.
  18. I see too much criticism here for the theme and the white space. UX is always a matter of discussion, and everyone has its personal tastes. Now try to put personal tastes aside, because everyone has his own ones. Do you have any UX test metrics other than "i don't like it" to present to support your views? My opinion is, this new theme is great improvement over the previous one. Is it perfect? No, specially mobile-wise topic page navigation (you have to completely scroll down or up to move to next page, which is not user friendly, for example - surely this can be measured) but regar
  19. This is a prevalent issue since 4.0 was launched. IPS needs to fix this.
  20. It is awesome to know that there are people who are doing great and making good Money with their work on communities. It means that, it is possible to get rewarded by your work and there are business models which are effective.
  21. Google ads is also not a very good option for me... maybe for high CPC countries like USA, UK, Canada and Germany may be an option, but i just make about 20€ per month out of it. I have more success with affiliate links in my niche market: much less intrusive and a bit better.
  22. Out of curiosity, i would like to have a picture on how profitable communities are nowadays. I believe that everyone share the same curiosity. Please vote (i seems that answers are anonymous) I am in the 0 to 500USD range (yearly), considering all the costs (license and server). Very far from making a life out of it 😄
  23. I believe it says nothing at all. It is just messing up with the css variables. From browser-side it is everything fine, so i would dismiss that report.
  24. Looks good! Where did you get these category icons?
