  1. Hi Adriano, Just installed the latest version (1.5.1) and immediately noticed two very small issues... 1. Under the ACP, there are two entries for "Raffles". One which has the settings menu, etc. and another that just has an entry for "new raffles by time period" which should probably be under the statics section with the other raffle statistics. Image attached. This might really confuse users of the raffles app if they come across the group without the settings menu... as in my case these two groups were far apart until I moved them one on-top of the other in the list. 2. The title for the app shown to users of the site is "sosRafflesTitle" which seems really odd. This of course can be changed through the translation features under the ACP; but I figured you probably meant it to simply be "Raffles". Like I said, very small issues... Thanks for all your hard work!
  2. Am I missing something or is there no way to add a club member through the AdminCP, ModeratorCP or some other way? I know how to easily "remove" club members but I see no way to easily "add" them without forcing them through 'invite' process. This presents a workflow problem with some types of clubs, that are not open to everybody. Like in the case where a closed club requires an application, a fee, or some other hurdle and once you get all of that done... then you wind up doing the 'invite' process because the admin simply can't "add a member" but conversely, can remove any he or she pleases. This seems odd to me. I must be missing something...
  3. All's good with my install as well.
  4. Hi Adriano, This is not a big deal, just a pesky cosmetic thing... but I thought I'd let you know. On the landing page for tutorials (v2.5.2) if you hover your mouse over the description of any tutorial (not the picture) you get a link balloon popup that repeats the words of the description including the html code. See attached.
  5. I am trying to update to latest version released today (from 1.4.0 to 1.4.1) through the marketplace using IPB v4.5 and the update fails with: Sorry, you do not have permission for that! 1S111/1 Column 'cg_crowdfundingspertime_period' cannot be null any thoughts? I am signed into the Marketplace as well as running as a full admin. Just to test, I siged out of Marketplace and back in again, but still the update continues to fail.
  6. Yeah... I've done a complete reversal on this after thinking on it for several hours. I should have paused and given it some more thought before only seeing it as a negative. This new change will work just fine. Thanks for the positive reinforcement, it's appreciated.
  7. Thanks! I'll keep an eye out for the new version.
  8. Ok.... I've played with it some and I see the setting is "persistent" and that's a little better. At first, I was thinking you'd have to login in publicly each and every time and then go to account settings... yada yada yada... Which would have been a nightmare. I guess this is the end of switching visibility around as I know I'll never remember to turn visibility back on under this new scheme.
  9. So... they have to login "publicly" and fully visible to all; then navigate to account settings and hide themselves? I am sorry, but that makes zero since to me. Granted.... having the ability in the account settings is nice for those that need to switch to annoyance while already signed in.... but, for those of us who like to just log in quickly to do or check something and then leave without anyone noticing we are there... that option is now gone. And, people will see us before we ever make it to account settings to hide ourselves. One step forward... three steps back.
  10. Maybe I missed an announcement somewhere.... but, what happened to the "login anonymously" check box on the default login form? In version 4.5 (using default template it's completely gone after upgrade. Yet, that very option still remains under the group settings in the ACP (to give user groups permission to login anonymously). How can they login anonymously... if you strip the option from the login form?
  11. Hi Adriano, Just an FYI.... On the latest version of Quizzes available through the Marketplace, 1.5.0 there seems to be a minor appearance issue with the buttons on the quiz result page using the default Invision template. Perhaps the buttons are not uniform for another reason that I am not aware of just yet. Not sure, but I thought I'd give you a heads up anyways in case you did not mean for it to be that way. I fixed it on my install by editing the Quizzes > front > view > resultQuiz template.
  12. So does this mean that "self hosted server licenses" will be phased out at some point? It sure seems like that's very much on the table.
  13. Thanks... I keep an eye open for the 4.5 version.
  14. Hi, I just wanted to point out that this is still an issue in version 3.1.0. Are there any recommended workarounds besides turning off image links? The above quote seems to reference actions that can be performed in the ACP and then fails to list any. I temporarily removed the {{if $table and $table->canModerate()}} code from the recordRow template, which eliminates the checkbox that does not work properly. But that seems a little counter productive. It's true that it's not critical, but it's one of those little things that with time... becomes increasingly annoying.
  15. No worries, like I said I found a work around for the issue.... I just create it as a paid raffle, assign it to a quiz and then convert the raffle to a giveaway and the quiz function still works. It would just be easier to not have to go through the extra conversion process. But I do think you missed something in my earlier point.... You are correct it would not make any sense if they could just click the "participate" button in the raffle section - which is why I "lock" the giveaway / raffle tied to the quiz as I mentioned before. With the giveaway raffle locked, they cannot just go to the raffle page and click "participate". It won't let them. In the locked raffle description, I tell them they must play the quiz (with a link) and they must score a 100% to be entered in the raffle. Easy. And, yes... playing the quiz tied to locked raffle still gives them a ticket and everything works just fine. It even shows them on the main raffle page as being entered into the raffle if they get the 100% score on the quiz. That might not be how you envisioned the "locked" raffles to work, but it does and I am very thankful for that. So, It's just how I am using the two apps together and my way of forcing members to take a quiz (in hopes that they learn something) and if they get 100% they are entered into the raffle and I don't have to worry about "selling" tickets and they can't just click "participate" without getting 100% on the quiz.
  16. Possible bug.... if you add a raffle to a quiz, you can't then remove it (like when the raffle is over). When editing the quiz and selecting the "x" next to the raffle name, it goes away until you save your changes and then it comes right back again. Also... it appears you can't add a "giveaway" directly to a quiz and only a paid raffle. The raffle field under the quiz just can't seem to find "givaways". I have found a way around this, it's just a pain. It might seem odd, to want to use givaways, but in my local I can't legally sell raffles without a mountain of headaches... So, I am using "givaways" tied to making people take a quiz to enter (and locking said givaway) so the only way to enter is to "play the quiz". And, it's working that way just fine. It would just be easier if the raffle field under quizzes accepted "giveaways"
  17. I was thinking... this app is great and could also be used for members to apply to become members of a "closed" club. Right now, if you have a closed club you have to "contact" the club owner and request access - which probably, leads to a lot of back an fourth, etc. Giving people the ability to apply to join a closed club seems far more professional to me (if the club owner wants to go that route, not mandatory or anything). It can actually be used for that purpose already without any changes. But what would make using it that way better, would be an option to auto allow a member to a club if their application is accepted - much like the existing promote member feature. Just a suggestion.
    A great addition to any site! Adriano does great work and this app is proof of that. Plus, Adriano is quick to respond to any questions and support needs. When I see his name on something, I automatically trust it will work and if something goes wrong, I know he'll address the issue quickly. He does not make you wait forever for a response and that's worth it's wait in gold. You can't go wrong with supporting Adriano's work.
    Another great app by Adrino Faria! This is a perfect way for those of us who have setup different accounts to manage certain aspects of our community but are stuck doing such work ourselves (until, we can hire other's to take over said roles). It's just perfect. It also provides a way for "allowed users" to toggle between their separate accounts to help further protect their privacy (a public vs. masked identity). Sadly, we do still live in times were such things are necessary no matter where you live (if not becoming even more important to do so once again). So, thanks and great work Adrino! I should also mention that I currently use like 12 of Adrino's apps/plugins (11 paid / 1 free) and I love them all! He does good work. I must apologize to Adrino as I've been very poor about writing reviews. I promise, I will try to correct that! ... and there's more of his apps I want to purchase and use, but I can't keep up with him and ironically... I can think of a ton of things I'd love to see him bring fourth as he's the man that could get it done. So much to do and so little time. Thanks again!
  18. It's just a thought... But, wouldn't that open up a whole can of potential legal and administrative problems.... publicly labeling people cheaters? Especially, considering this is not a strict testing environment where we could control the entire environment. There are things outside a users control that could take them away from the "active" tab and cause them to fail (besides actually cheating). For example those annoying pop-ups from other running programs that may require the user to close such things just to get back to viewing the quiz itself. Irregardless... labeling people cheaters (even when it's deserved) seems more problematic than good.
  19. Thanks for checking into this Adriano! I'll look for the new version in the coming days.
  20. The last thing I noticed with my testing is notifications... not sure if this is one of those IPS by design things, a bug or whatever.... If I am the creator of a quiz, when I log in... I only receive a notification for the very last member to have taken the quiz. If 5 people have taken the quiz while I am logged out, when I log in I am only notified of the very last person to have taken the quiz. It seems odd, as it kinda gives the impression that only one person has played and that can be misleading.
  21. I noticed a typo in one of the answers of my simple 5 question quiz and when I click "edit question" I get the message "you've reached the maximum number of questions" and it won't let me edit anything. I've read the limit far exceeds my 5 question quiz, so I am assuming this must just be a bug somewhere.
