  1. Of course that a newsletter (to a large mailing list) will require an external email provider such as SparkPost, I don't see a problem with that.. Pretty obvious IMO. True, however Discourse does seem to handle this without any issues. In addition to that, please note Optic14's reply - this feature is actually already pretty much exist - all that needs to be done is basically just add popular topics from the community (instead of just new topics from followed sections) to this (unique per member) "notifications email" function, and allow to schedule it separately from the normal "notifications email" (so users could, for example, keep their notifications in-site only, but still get a daily/weekly summary emails of popular topics they might have missed). Thank you
  2. You are right, this means that the core support for this feature is basically available (daily/weekly email with list of topics), all they need is to allow it to show popular topics from all the community, instead of just new topics from followed sections, and then of course allow us to send it globally to all users like a newsletter (all users will get the same topics because the popular topics are not user-specific and are not related to the user's followed content).
  3. almost doubled = make sure you are not having the GA code twice on the same page. This might cause double pageviews.
  4. "When I want it" ? This thread is one YEAR old.
  5. Not even RESPONDING to a topic in the Feedback and Ideas forum DOES MEAN they're ignoring the idea. How exactly do you know what the broader customer base wants more/less? Actually the replies here says otherwise.
  6. UP Just received an even better version of this feature from a discourse forum I'm registered at. While they keep improving this amazingly engagementing feature, the IPS team keeps ignoring this suggestion.
  7. Yes, after using it for some time, I realized that actually being able to completely collapse/hide the entire widget - will be nice...
  8. (is there a better place to report bugs on beta versions?) After upgrading to the new 4.2.2 Beta 2, all my users that do not have a custom avatar showed a broken image. The img code had an empty src: <img src="" alt="maimon_y"> When I changed the 'Default Profile Photos' setting to 'Generate profile photos from first letter of the member's display name' instead of 'Use the theme's default profile photo' - it worked fine. So it seems that something is wrong with the theme's default profile photo. To clarify: I checked with the default theme, unmodified and unchanged, all default settings. Also, in 'managing resources', the default photo - {resource="default_photo.png" app="core" location="global"} - does indeed exist. I also tried to delete the default photo, then upload it again - didn't help.
  9. +1 (or +2....) for this idea. One of the first things I did after upgrading to 4.2.0 was to enter the reactions settings page in order to set "like" to +1 and "Thanks" to +2 ..... I was actually very surprised to find out that it's not currently possible.
  10. I'm not here to argue with you... This setting WILL show you the upgrade to the FINAL release of 4.2.0, right now, instead of waiting for it to show up without this setting. Take it or leave it
  11. While I agree that customisation is the best option for everyone, I do honestly think that for 99% of the users the notifications is the first thing they want to check out - and I believe it MUST be right there on the header. Not hidden inside the hamburger menu. You can put the almost-never-used Search button in there, if you don't want to have too many icons at the same time.
  12. I would love a way to see how many users uses each display mode (table, grid, fluid) - is it possible? I'm curious because I still keep the 'table' mode as default, but I consider changing the default mode to 'fluid' - but before I do that I wish to know how many users, if at all, even noticed that this option exist - and how many users uses it. If I'll see that a lot of people are using it already - it will make me more confident about setting it as default.
  13. Add to your constants.php file: define( 'USE_DEVELOPMENT_BUILDS', TRUE ); This will show you the 4.2.0 upgrade. (Don't worry, this is the final version)
  14. Yes please. I would much prefer have the notifications icon on the first view, rather than anything else. Search button for example? it's nice but Notifications are MUCH MORE frequently used than search.
  15. And... bumping this because I think it's a nice idea + it's 2017 already and some things changed: Most sites today use OpenGraph tags (for the same reason - so when sharing links from their website on Facebook it will be able to embed correctly). IPS could very easily use an API service like: http://www.opengraph.io/ in order to get the OpenGraph data of a link, with a small AJAX request. Not sure about licensing though, they have a free plan up to 100 requests/hour, 5,000 requests/month, but of course each user will have to set up its own account. $.ajax('http://opengraph.io/api/1.0/site/http%3A%2F%2Fwww.washingtontimes.com%2F') .done(function(data){ console.log(data); }); Will return: { "hybridGraph": { "title": "Washington Times - Politics, Breaking News, US and World News", "description": "The Washington Times delivers breaking news and commentary on the issues that affect the future of our nation.", "image": "http://twt-assets.washtimes.com/v4/images/logo-twt.4b20fb5d7b29.svg", "url": "http://www.washingtontimes.com/", "type": "site", "site_name": "Washington Times " }, "openGraph": {...}, "htmlInferred": {...}, "requestInfo": {...} } source: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/19312942/how-can-i-retrieve-og-meta-attributes-of-a-resource http://www.opengraph.io/examples/php-open-graph-example/ http://www.opengraph.io/examples/jquery-opengraph-example/
  16. I created 2 banner ads with the "Fluid view topic listing, between topic rows" setting. First banner: after every 10 topic rows (Repeated: 1 time) Second banner: after every 20 topic rows (Repeated: 1 time) But this causes only the second banner to appear. The first banner was ignored. Changing the number of rows didn't have any affect. Setting "Repeated" to 0 times causes both banners to be ignored so I guess 1 means "display 1 time" and not "repeat 1 (more) time". Only way to display 2 banners was to set the first one to "repeated: 2 times" and completely disable the second banner. If I kept the second banner on (even if it was set to 21 rows (so it doesn't overwrite the first banner's 2nd-repeat loop), I got only the second banner (instead of: banner #1 after 10 rows, banner #1 again after 20 rows, banner #2 after 21 rows). It is important for me to have separate banners because they have separate codes, I can't just repeat the first banner twice. How can I create 2 different banners on the Fluid view? Thanks
  17. Hi, I have quite a few old forums that I keep as an administrative "archive", and I have the entire category collapsed. However in the Fluid view, I see all the forums in a large expanded list, and apparently there is no way to change this / hide these forums / collapse them. This takes up a lot of wasted space in the sidebar. Is there a way to fix this?
  18. Not sure if the "print topic" feature exists on IPS 4... but if not then you can simply temporarily change the number of posts per page to 999999, and open it. Then, just print the page from your browser to a pdf-printer.
  19. This is what I did but there's no way to mass-do anything with the search results... Oh, I just noticed the 2 links to prune / move all of them. But... the search results does have some legitimate users that I want to exclude from the mass-delete, I was looking for a way to "select all", unselect a few members manually, and then do some actions with the selected members. This is the "manage members" page - why there is no checkboxes next to each member that will allow the admin to mass-manage multiple members at once? that's too bad... Also an option to choose how many members per page to display would be nice. I guess I can mas move all of them to a new group, then remove the specific members away from this group, and then do a search for this group and prune all of them.
  20. Hi, Those are LIVE viewing members, right? Is there a way to see the full list of members who viewed this topic, ever? So if a topic says "50 views, 2 replies" I'll be able to see WHO made these 50 views? Pretty much like the same feature from Facebook (in groups) where you can see who viewed a certain post.
  21. Hello, I have many spammers that have registered using mail.ru / inbox.ru email addresses, and have 0 posts (they use their account to access other sections of the website, that doesn't affect the posts count). I have created a ban-filter for this, but I already have existing fake users that are still active. I want to mark all of them as spammers - all users with ".ru" emails with 0 posts. I can see all of them in the admin panel (members section), but I have more than 500 users and there's no way (as far as I can see) to mass "mark as spammer" all of them. Doing this one by one is a nightmare. Is there a way to overcome this? Otherwise I might just do a direct DELETE from the sql table for these users... Is this going to create problems? Thanks
  22. OK, I was able to overcome this by removing the "tags" parameter from the "forums/topics" call, and then adding it by another, second call, to "forums/topics/$id". The actual issue still exists though.
  23. This error also occurs when I try to use "prefix" instead of "tags".
