    Me too, I was thinking maybe a starter area for new sign-ups, or a guides section?

    Create a new theme using default settings and this will create a new default theme for you.

    @Michael.J Could you add 'groups' to the top point's widget, or have a separate one. I need a way to see how many points each group has so I can sort out prizes for the group the works at earning the most points.
    A global stats page would be even better that one can view on the front end or in ACP.
    Also, I need a way to disable points for certain groups, one being the admins/staff. Having an option in ACP to disable/select would be desirable.

    Please, please, please! I've been asking for a good couple of years now! 🥰

    Dean_ got a reaction from bfarber in IOS photos are uploaded upside down   
    I'm not sure if the soft does actually fix the above issue but, the main reason this happens is that people don't allow the camera to change its orientation before taking a picture.

    It's something I've had to explain to my members time and time again. Let's say you're in portrait mode and then quickly turn the phone to landscape and take a picture. If you look at the screen you'll notice the words/details on the screen are not at the right orientation. I still get caught out by this on my iPhone 8 and iPhone XS Max at times.
    So, if I have taken the picture and I've noticed it's sideways when uploading, I simply go to Photo's, edit the picture and rotate it once, save it and then rotate it again until it's in the correct orientation and then save it. Now when I go to upload it, the photo is facing the correct way. This issue has been around a very long time. It's even worse when the phone is actually upside down (buttons on the bottom of the phone) as you don't realise you've turned it this way and go to take a picture.

    I hope this helps others who face this issue as it's not IPS's software that is at fault. ☺️

    As recommended, I'm creating this topic to reinstate the option to download files manually from the Marketplace.
    It's bad enough you don't allow the download of apps we purchased when our licence has expired. But, to completely change the way file downloads are handle is a little much.

    Please don't get me wrong, I love the idea that we can now do it all with ACP, but you shouldn't disable/change the way that a lot of us download files for localhost setups to test our sites before going live.

    Please, please, please allow the option to download files manually like we've done for so many years!

    Dean_ got a reaction from Jordan Invision in Our Picks menu is extremely confusing   
    When you promote a topic or post, it should auto detect any images and give you a choice to select one or more to be the main image on the forums or for social media links (or, upload your own image). The show original content will be the original post or topic text. The next box down (green +) will be a preview text of the post or topic. I usually keep this to two lines and no more, so it shows on the forum. If you have Twitter or/and Facebook then these too will be populated with the post. Again keep to no more than two lines, the links to the original post will also be in the box.
    So you really shouldn't have to do much, but trim down the text as you don't want half a page of text on your promoted page.

    Dean_ got a reaction from theipsguy in IPB native Points System (IP.Subeconomies? IP.Points?)   
    It's certainly something a lot of us have been asking over the years, we had IP Points, then iAwards, etc for v2.x and I think even 3.x. It would certainly be welcomed, but I can't see it getting much traction within the team. But it would be something I'd use. I've had to stop using Jackals and gone back to Michaels point system, but both are very basic and doesn't suit my needs.

    This might only be an option for me as I can't see many people using this, but the option to not use any main or secondary titles? I wish to just show a picture and then have the posts/topics underneath (would make the sidebar neater in my eye).

    I also see this a security concern personally. When I log out, I've logged out for a reason and I expect to input my conditionals again and not be automatically logged in. Unless I've ticked 'remained signed in' I expect to be logged out.

    You can use one of the built in widgets for this. Click the arrow on the left hand side of the screen to open the widgets and select forum posts/topics and from there you can set it to how you want/need.

    Application which allows you to apply random 'annoyances' to your annoying users. Options are:
    Show a blank page Show site as offline Show page not found error Delay page loading Redirect to another url Each of the above has a % chance of happening, configured by you - and you can configure different behaviour on a per-user basis.

    Dean_ got a reaction from xtech in How do i download plugins?   
    I see it pretty simple now.

    For years, we've asked for some sort of Wordpress like feature, drag and drop, auto update within acp, plugins within acp. We now have it and realise we don't like it much after being used to IP.Board/IPB/IPS for years. But, we're now stuck with it.

    If you want addons without being tied to ACP, then ask the developer for the files, so you can keep a copy. This is what IPS suggest doing, and they have no intension of taking that feature away from us.

    Happy New Year by the way!!
