  1. 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).

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 Don't use outdated Applications and Plugins on updated script.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.

  2. Yes, I think that's the reason. I changed the notification settings and blocked the option of sending to e-mail. We'll see if it works. Thanks.
  3. @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 */
  4. Hi guys I discovered yesterday that sending emails does not work correctly on my site. It turned out that the limit was exhausted. Hosting provider has already reset the limit and informed me that there is a loop in the script. (IPS) The script tries to send e-mails to non-existent accounts over and over again. they sent me logs: 2018-02-10T05:56:23.434Z [INFO] [0A618AC6-3345-4708-B3A6-B822BC4E0F39.1.1] [outbound] bouncing mail: Some recipients failed: <xxx@gmail.com> 2018-02-10T06:11:35.964Z [NOTICE] [C9460898-564B-4809-91AC-80760E7CC1A9.1] [core] recipient <xxx@gmail.com> code=OK msg="" sender=cms@forum.pl 2018-02-10T06:11:36.379Z [NOTICE] [C9460898-564B-4809-91AC-80760E7CC1A9.1.1] [outbound] recipient <xxx@gmail.com> rejected: 550 5.1.1 The email account that you tried to reach does not exist.

  5. @Nathan Explosion i have over 100 pages of 25 reports per page so it's a tedious job; ( I thought that i find in acp option for automatic deletion after a certain time as it is with the content that has been removed. reported posts. (ie.report)
  6. Maybe it's a stupid question but I can not find an option to delete user reported content. I have over 100 pages of old checked reported content and I don't know how to delete them automatically.
  7. @sadams101 download robots.txt file from the attachment and edit url to sitemap. After editing, add to the main directory (public_html). It works really well for indexing. robots.txt
  8. also check your robots.txt file. Good configuration looks like this:

    Very Cool! Good Job IPS!
  10. I think i found a very simple bug.. So if we register via Login Handler eg. Facebook we can't change own email address or configure account security because we have not created a password.. but field to enter password exist. So question is, how to create password for user who register via Login Handler?
  11. I don't think this is good idea, we have now "reactions".
  12. Thanks for the news. Beta 7 is pretty stable.
  13. IPS Community Suite is one of the most popular engines. It raises MyBB, phpBB and other similar scripts. Like Google among search engines. I have been a customer for a very long time, if not IPB, probably my forum today would not exist. I wanted to thank the whole crew. Thank you for this wonderful CMS :-)
    Working very well on IPS 4.2. Thank You
  14. SeNioR-

    Mark as Sold

    It looks like it does not work on IPS 4.2 (Need to update CSS Selector). I could fix this myself but i wait for you.
  15. Fantastic Feature! Now i use buffer.com for this but i don't have to. I suggest adding google+
  16. Stop words like "cool" "super" I agree.
  17. Please see Release Patches for https://invisionpower.com/release-notes/
  18. Great Scott! Future is coming.
  19. @Adriano Faria There is a bug for me. I have "Company name" field named "Firma" and i can't set display to guest. Allowed Groups - i checked only those who may have access to edit Visible to - i checked all and guests can't see the field.. work only if i check Allowed Groups to all. Can you add "Guests" group ? because it's not on the list
  20. Thanks. I was right. BTW. This release is most buggy for my.
