  1. " In 4.6, we’ve completely revamped our Ranks system to communicate with Achievements. Achievements’ Ranks system will replace our previous Ranks system*" Can we keep the existing Ranks system?
  2. That won't work across time zones though. I'm in Australia and see times in my time zone. Many of our members are in the UK which is 9 or 10 hours behind. What I see as September 13 19:00 would show as September 13 10:00 in the UK. Our members liked the Post Number plug-in but if doesn't return I won't be upset. I see how the numbers change after deleting, hiding, splitting posts. The PostID idea is interesting but I can't see too many members quoting numbers like this - 2931519 (a real post number from a few minutes ago on my Forum) With collapsed quotes, we'll just keep educating people on linking rather than saying "post 1234" Now, about the old Automatically hide/delete inactive posts feature......😮
  3. No Unsplash in 4.5.0. Hopefully it won't be long once all the upgrade bugs are squashed.
  4. Unless it is the first post in a thread, the Share link DOES link to an individual poat.
  5. I agree. Unsplash will work for us while Pixabay won't.
  6. We considered something like that a while ago. Once we reaslised that nearly all the swearing was in the off topic forum, we thought itwould only encourage posters to have a competition for the most ridiculous sentence possible and there's alreay enough rubbish in that forum. In the end we just used 16 *s for all words we replaced. That destroys any chance of people inferring the meaning and thus it is impossible for members to get the context or get offended. IT has virtually stopped it now apart from 'jokes' copied over from other sources.
  7. "to reduce the chance that a confused member will attempt to post a reply via the email! " Thank you! I'm sure many of our members (older and not very tech literate) will still hit Reply, this should help. Much appreciated.
  8. Sometimes I wonder if Amazon does either. 🤣 Anyway, this subject intrigued me enough to have a look at our usage for the first time in a while. We are a CiC site and use S3 for storing attachments and gallery images and our latest invoice shows 70Gb of storage. The total cost is USD13/month. That breaks down to roughly $2 tax, $2 for storage and $8 for bandwidth (data in and out of S3) So storage is very cheap and bandwidth is very slightly higher. I probably wouldn't recommend putting high traffic data such as user profile images on there but for us, moving the bulky images and gallery onto S3 has been a life saver. Depending on your site traffic and what your host charges for storage and bandwidth then you may well save money using it. There has been a lot of discussion and several Help Guides about S3 so a search for "amazon s3" (including the quotes) will provide more information. I did taht many times when setting up our S3 and it all went smoothly.
  9. They are different settings. If you search the ACP for non-registrable you can add an IP address in there. That will remain even if you delete an account and all the personal data including IP addresses used.
  10. What a great site. Thank you for highlighting it. Pixabay looks quite limited for our area of interest but that site is very good for us.
  11. From the article Availability We intend to release the app alongside the next significant point release of Invision Community, expected to be 4.5. Communities will need to upgrade to this version to allow their users to use the app.
  12. That looks like the Table Tools Toolbar plugin. You could try Table Tools which adds most of those features via a (I think) Ctl+Right Click to show extra functionality in the pop up.
  13. That's a different issue. This link still works on my 4.4.4 site i.e. it lists all members but doesn't work here (assuming IPS is running 4.4.5) It just returns the default Advanced Search page.
  14. I haven't upgraded yet but this happens on this site using the link posted by Brandon.
  15. If you want to use Font Awesome icons, there's this help guide
