  1. The problem with this is that IPS is using an early and very old version of bootstrap beneath their framework. They should update it. While they don't do it, just use an any other library.
  2. 2 Months passed. Is it really IPS staff taking this long to approve it?
  3. HI, does this app allows club admins setting one topics feature (topics) to public and another one to private to club members? mean having one public forum and one private forum at a club?
  4. @Gabriel Torres are you already seeing Google Analytics benefits of these improvements? I mean, how are the several optimizations you are making impacting your search engine traffic? I believe that IPS should implement these improvements built in. Having successful communities is of their best interest, and SEO effectiveness should be a top priority.
  5. Sorry 😞 there is no "non coder" way to do what you want, unless someone does a plugin for this.
  6. You would need more advanced processing inside the template. Remember: article content is in field $record->_content. This field is a String that contains the HTML code that by its turn, contain your article text, images, etc. As an example, if you want to set an ad after the first paragraph and before the second paragraph, then you need to edit the record display template as follows: find the first paragraph end tag (</p>). You can do it with string functions or regex. Split the the string at that position (so you will have one string with the first paragraph, (
  7. Adsense doens't like ads on sticky divs. I've tried some years ago and the ads simply did not appear. Google doesn't like any "tricks" to draw attention to the ads - although imho making them sticky is not properly a "trick".
  8. Try to understand what the error message is trying to tell you: the string "attachment_file_missing - /home/halu/public_html/Yabbse/attachments/32318_t1_ashx_attach1idRgAAAADmmEv9PKKvQ4oBqRQNZomPBwDC2fzi22fpGYTZtymL8wbDrEAADR2fin7AABdHAnbM02eT5ABpTWls3feAAAEk4LJAAAJattid0EADy2fJG2FKMNRrXCQhwtWxz3attcnt15feb5c740bb9f0b99780181b69294c07" is too long to be inserted into the column log_message. This is because... it is too long, really. I mean the column "log_message" data type is probably configured to accept smaller strings, so you have two choices: trim the string to fit the maximum allowe

    Email logo

    If you edit the e-mail templates, you can do it.
  10. 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.
  11. @Morrigan thanks, you were way more helpful 🙂 i didn't know that detail of the menu values.
  12. 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.
  13. 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
  14. To be honest, no i don't. I believe that in order to do that you need to create an app because you need to create an FURL.
  15. If you have IP Pages, just create an HTML page without the Suite HTML wrapper.
  16. This is a complaint/unfulfilled suggestion from several years ago: the possibility of define maximum number of emails per time (minute / hour / day / month). This would allow the email send request peaks to be flattened and bette balanced over time, which has many benefits. It is very different from a spam classification point of view if you send 2000 emails in 2 minutes or 2000 emails in two days. In the first case, you may raise some flags which will then cause your email address and domain to be blacklisted and ignored by many email services. Sorry being down to earth, but the bul
  17. 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
  18. It is only dangerous if the user knows what sql is. And if he knows, surely knows what DELETE FROM query is... Some simple measures could be taken, like forbidding UPDATE or DELETE queries. Allow only SELECT queries, for example.
  19. Nooooooo! Please don't remove it! 🥶 It is actually a great tool despite its simplicity, it saves us the hassle of connecting other dedicated software or to log via ssh and go to mysql command line just to see simple things, such as the raw names of the fields, specially when we are developing Pages templates, for example.
  20. Well, i've submitted the ticket, still no avail yet. I have investigated more, and i've found that there is something wrong when you add your menu items as "external link". In this case, the ipsNavBar_active class to the active <li> element of menu is not added. I like to use the external link to point to internal address as it allows me to customize the name of the menu item (and to insert the code for the Font Awesome Icon). This is currently not working anymore from what i can see, but it worked on previous versions - i have two communities working with that perfectly with t
  21. I have already tried to clear the cache, it didn't solve the problem. I guess i'll open a ticket...
  22. 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
  23. Hi everyone, i am setting up a new community with 4.5.3. For some reason, the default theme is not assigning a ipsNavBar_active class to the active <li> element of menu. Being so, i cannot style it accordingly because it is not known what is the menu item that is active. This happens also with the default theme. While i notice that in IPS site it works ok, other communities that i have (have not yet upgraded to 4.5.3) are working good. Do you have the same problem?
