  1. I came up with the idea to add an e-mail domain check using e.g checkdnsrr What do you think about it? It would reduce the number of bots and users who type email address with a domain that does not exist.
  2. @bfarber thank you for reply. You have right. I use @opentype suggestion.
  3. @Jim M I don't have a "Clients" group anymore. I must renew the license I can't see the page
  4. If we click on "Sign in anonymously" at Sign In page, the "Remember me" checkbox becomes unchecked and "Sign in anonymously" is still unchecked
  5. Missing margin space. Register: Login:
  6. Heyo My users often use special characters in the display name. My forum is in Polish, so letters with litte tails like "ąśłćżźłęęąźćłę" are normal. I know there is a setting called "Allowed characters in display names" but it is too restrictive. Is there a chance to add a "Disallowed characters in display names" field? That would make things easier.
  7. Required functionality: "Image Lazy Load"

    @Matt Is there still a chance?
  8. Letter avatar is not generated if user name starts by number "0" Is this deliberate action or a bug?
  9. Happy 16th Birthday To Us!

    Happy B-Day! Best CMS of all!

  12. Hi, I didn't find a similar topic so I decided to create one. These are ideas and seo tips that will speed up your community. First, thanks to @Adlago for your effort and contribution to improve IPS. Topic will be updated on a regular basis. 1. Images a). keep your images on subdomain; use CDN (Content Delivery Network) if you can. Explanation: https://www.semrush.com/blog/must-know-seo-practices-for-content-delivery-networks-cdns/ b). change size of default letter avatars to 80x80 (max 150x150) - the default size is set to 500 pixels (sic!) Explanation: https://invisioncommunity.com/forums/topic/441642-generate-profile-photos/ 2. Sitemap a). add your sitemap to Google Webmaster Tools and Bing - Webmaster Tools. (Optional: Yandex, Baidu) Explanation: https://invisioncommunity.com/forums/topic/442742-large-community-you-have-a-problems-with-sitemap/ 3. Robots.txt file a). Make sure you have this file. b). Add link to your sitemap file and disable subfolders that you don't want to be indexed. c). Check out my optimized robots.txt file for IPS 4.2 Explanation: https://invisioncommunity.com/forums/topic/438911-robotstxt-ipboard-4x/?do=findComment&comment=2699582 https://invisioncommunity.com/forums/topic/428706-when-google-index-topic/ https://invisioncommunity.com/forums/topic/423233-i-advise-you-to-remove-share-by-email/ https://invisioncommunity.com/files/file/8608-robotstxt/ 3. PHP Version a). change PHP version to the latest one if you can. (IPS work well on PHP 7.1. I am not convinced to 7.2) Explanation: https://invisioncommunity.com/forums/topic/442321-php-720-released/ 4. Updates a). Update your Applications, Plugins, Themes, Script on a regular basis. b). Don't use outdated Applications and Plugins on updated script. This leads to many system errors. 5. Archiving Tool a). reduce the size of the database table storing posts. Archive topics with a lot of posts that are not used. Explanation: https://invisioncommunity.com/forums/topic/437997-mass-remove-topics-for-better-performance-bad-idea/ 6. Bots a).

  13. Generate profile photos

    @Adlago i fully agree. I discovered that avatars have 500 pixels just yesterday. I have blank avatar in ACP too. I was shocked after testing site on GTmatrix Resizing in constants.php works only for new register members. <?php define( 'THUMBNAIL_SIZE', '100x100' ); /* size of letter avatar default size is 500x500 */
