    kmk reacted to Pavel Chernitsky in Can we have modular/resizable widgets?   
    I LOVE(!!!!) IPS's widgets/blocks thing. They're so easy to use, intuitive, give you the ability to show flexible information literally within three clicks, and all that. I'm sure everyone is well aware of how freakin' awesome they are.
    BUT, and that's avery big but, at the same time, they are so stupendously limited. if you want a block on top, it has to be full width and predetermined height. you can have it either on the left or right - not both. you can't change the height, whether it's in the side bar or the the main body.
    And it drives me mad. I mean, you can change the Pages app layout to two of three columns, you can make a WYSIWYG block, a text one, and even an image carousel. why not have the ability to add two or three blocks in the same row? or even allow to just drop more and more block and have the ones already there automatically get narrower? and maybe even manually adjust the height of a block/row of blocks? This will give community managers SO MUCH more power to be able to "push" things they want to their members without having to push other important things to far down the page.

    Hi, please consider add audio player support to ips core features. As content manager tools, we can embed youtube and videos displayed in our topics or records, but missing audio player, we need upload audio files have it show to members as player...I think this is not so much as a content suite platform.

    Nathan, do you see the 4.5 update any time soon?
    I have an audio database section which depends on this player and I'm stuck to 4.4 because of it.

    There is. I used it a few years ago.

    I used a service called email to rss, and then converted the email-rss to topics via rss import. It worked out nice.
    I registred that email adress on a lot of websites to receive bargains, and everytime the shops had a sale email - a topic was created.

    That sounds reasonable - but if you want an actual instance then my own issue is one to view.  Uploaded a theme, works great, then for some reason it starts acting funny and there is no apparent reason for it doing so.  Uninstalling the theme and reinstalling it resolved the issue, however I lost all my customisations in the process and had to redo them, not a major incident but one which could have been resolved with a simple reinstall of the files. I'm not sure if you're aware of this issue, but it basically meant I could not see a database in the pages app and when trying to add, remove or reposition blocks on the front page I got this error:

    I understand that these irregularities may not be something that occurs frequently, but just having that little button that says 'Reapply Files' would be a boon and it would potentially cut down tickets and having to contact app authors, many of whom take a long time to respond and many are often in different time zones making any useful dialogue difficult. But thanks for offering an olive branch of hope 🙂

    We're not talking about forums or any of the IPS apps, it's about third-party apps and you don't always have to start with a clean slate.  I'm not talking about reinstalling database tables, etc, I'm on about the actual files that get installed on the server - this is generally where corruption or other issues can take place.  If the issue is with the database, then you may be stuck unless you know how to analyse and manipulate databases.  There are some situations where a reinstall will not work, but in general I have always found that reuploading the files of an app works.  I run a movies site and if I uninstall the app, I lose everything, if I can reinstall the files without uninstalling, I may have a lucky escape - this is what I am on about and why it was useful to have a hard copy of third-party apps.  
    Not everyone knows about backups and where to find files, etc.  I'm lucky in that I can do these things (having done this and learned over the last 20 years), but not everyone can and not everyone will.  Now, if third-party apps had a backup option when they use database tables, which would change the landscape, it would be a bonus, but I can't see them doing that.  The idea I'm pressing for is to make it as simple as possible for users to fix things themselves without raising tickets or contacting authors who may take days or even weeks to respond.
    It's like a lot of things in life, you fix an issue and potentially create more issues - which is why there are a lot of topics related to this subject.  The system, in principle, is good but as it stands it lacks a lot in terms of self-support.  Running the support tool will find issues with any IPS system files that may be out of order, but not third-party apps 🙂

    This would be like taking a jack hammer to crack a nut as opposed to a simple 'reinstall' link.  I wouldn't want to take my site offline, download my database, uninstall the app, reinstall the app and then overwrite the database, make sure all was OK and then put my site back online.  Hitting reinstall to overwrite potentially corrupted files (not necessarily the database) would be so much simpler 🙂
     
    You do now, that's exactly what I had to do with my theme.  I contacted the author, he didn't know what the issue could be - puzzled he was.  I did the only other thing I could think of, uninstall, and reinstall - that fixed it.

    The only thing I would ask is to be able to reinstall an app without having to delete it first and thereby losing all of the data associated with the app.  This ability to reinstall could be for a multitude of reasons, but mostly if something untoward happens and the app files are corrupted.  At present this is not possible, so the ability to 'reinstall' over the top of the existing installation to correct any mishaps, errors or corruption would be a boon.  This is what we were able to do when we had a hard copy of the app files.  So, I would put this forward as a suggestion to @Charles @Lindy @Matt @bfarber as a future update to the marketplace.
    I'm bringing this to the attention of staff, because recently one of my themes was throwing a wobbler and would not allow me to save block positions or to access a database in Pages.  My only resolution to this was to uninstall the theme and reinstall it, losing all of my customisations.  It wasn't something fatal to me, but it was a damned inconvenience to have to go in and redo all those changes.  A simple reinstall would have solved the issue.
    So, under Installed have a link to reinstall.  This would save a lot of heartache 🙂

    Sure, you first setup your departments, and give the department a unique e-mail address:
    All of these e-mail addresses need to point to the same input. This is piped via the server, SendGrid, or POP3. I'd recommend using the piping option or SendGrid. POP3 really should be the method of last resort.

    I think you're asking if you could have multiple e-mail accounts handled by the Support module of the Commerce application? If so, you can do that now out of the box.
    If not, could you try rewording this and give some examples? Do you mean instead that you'd like to check your e-mail through the support tool IPS uses to ask for help (Zendesk)?

    kmk reacted to Meddysong in How to know if it is fine?   
    That's normal:

    There's a margin-left on the block so that the text doesn't sit underneath the club icon. But the consequence is that when the width is narrow, sometimes the text sits with a margin even though the club icon is not in the space.

    The support tool only requires giving access to the ACP to staff. And even then, you can limit their access to the support request section only.
    Members interact via the front end at yoursite.com/support
    For clubs, you could give those club people access only to a support queue relevant to their club.

    kmk got a reaction from SUBRTX in Widget improvement with "More" button   
    The Recent updated is one of my most visited widget, but in case more than 10 updated apps I will lose the rest of them. 
    Example for recent topics widget by default with 10 topics, I would like have a "more" button in the end, each time I use the button it will show 5 items more, so I can use it to enlist to more topics. 
    By each enlist more action, it should be show a "condensed last action" Button, if the "More" button enlisted more than one time, then show "back to default" button too. If I just want to go back last time "More", use "Condensed last enlist action", if I want to go back to the default widget status, use "Back to default". 
    For widget that can not show more items than the unique content, the "More" button can be use as redirect button, so we can place a redirect link where we like the member discover easier. Or just to show rules something like announcements.

    Right click on the header or the footer, select 'Inspect element' and determine what the ID of the widget is.
    Then target it in CSS (you've been given loads of example previously) and do display:none
