  1. Issue Preamble This issue seems very minor, but it creates unforeseen, difficult-to-fix issues down the road for the owner of IPS. What Is It? Hovering the mouse over tabs has different effects in different browsers and even different machines. Here is an example of how hovering the cursor over menu tabs has different effects in Firefox and Edge: - No tabs were clicked in this GIF. Double The Inconsistency! I know for a fact that the inconsistency does not show up on all computers. I have the issue on my desktop, but I didn't have it last time I checked on my laptop (using the same browser with the same update). So this isn't just inconsistent between browsers but also users/computers. This makes the issue extremely hard to fix, prevent or work around for IPS owners and skin creators. And it WILL frustrate users, as I'll explain below. When Is It Worst? This little inconsistency or bug will create issues for an unknown percentage of our users, when the forum is using different skins than the original. As an example, it means that I have to click twice on any menu item with the skin I am using, when I use my desktop with Firefox or Chrome (such an insult that it only works as intended on Edge, haha). With the skin I am using, a drop down menu appears when I hover. But in Chrome/Firefox, I have to click twice for it to react in Chrome/FF, because of this seemingly harmless inconsistency in the default theme. New users experiencing this issue will most likely just go away and not come back, without reporting the (for them) glaringly obvious issue. And if they do report it but you as an owner don't have the same issue, what can you really do if you can't reproduce it? If you feel like it, you can check out if you have the same issue or not on my site, www.uniforum.dk - that is where I've done all my testing and had any issues. However, I've seen other IPS owners on other forums than mine have the same issue. Closing Thoughts You could say that this is a skin-creator issue, but really it is not, IMHO. They can't take into account issues that they cannot necessarily reproduce. I hope someone here has the experience needed and can take a look into something as inconsistent as this. Cheers!

    I've just encountered a bug. I have a bunch of categories, each with a default collab that I've made invisible and flagged as Model. This way, users can make their own collabs and they are all made to specifications in advance. Great! However, I decided to make a new, updated default model. I deleted the old default collab from each category, moved in the new and flagged it as Model instead. However, now two models pop up when a user wants to make a new collab - the old and the new - and I cannot unflag the old Model because... I've deleted it. I'm seemingly stuck with it forever as an option to confuse my users. Options looks like this: I'll work around it by creating new categories and move everything over. Just thought I'd you all know to look out for it and maybe @Kevin Carwile can find a fix at some time, if it is reproduce-able by others. Cheers.

    No, it sounds like you might've got this wrong. Of course I may be mistaken somehow, but then I hope someone will correct me. Users cannot create Pages. With GC they can create their own forums with their own, local moderators. Me, I'm making a default collab which will be how every new collab is. This includes permissions for their local moderators. BTW, if you do that, be careful not to include posts in the flagged default collab - on my board, that seems to create some issues. Even if you create a post and delete it again, that collab is "infected" and can no longer be used as the default. Dunno why. GC is awesome and as soon as I've actually used it with members and such, I'll be sure to leave some feedback and a rating

    I have this minor bug for guests as well.
  6. Hej Claus

    Der opstår en mærkelig fejl i ACP når jeg bruger oversættelsen. Når jeg prøver at lave en kategori i databaser kan den ikke gemmes, og Forum-fanen er helt hen i vejret og viser "Overblik" (Dashboard).

    Fejlen forsvinder igen, når jeg deaktiverer dansk som sprog.

    I think I've got it figured out now, so the GC & Chameleon theme doesn't annoy each other. Editing the theme html customization, under: collab > front > components > categoryTable Line 78 I added the ipsBox to the class like this. <ol class='ipsBox ipsDataList ipsDataList_zebra ipsClear collabListTable I haven't had time to see if it happens to mess with anything else yet, but if it does, I promise I'll post it here. I believe this needs to be redone with every upgrade.

    Because I don't know the first thing about modding templates or anything theme-related in IPS4 - that piece of code pasted was just copied from Ehren's site. I don't know how many places it needs doing, don't know where, even how to fix mistakes I make. I can spend time trying to figure it out, but having a solution anyone buying yours and Ehrens products can follow, searchable right here on IPS' website, would be a benefit to all. Anyways, I take your meaning.

    Hi @Kevin Carwile I've just bought GC after testing it a while back and I'm running into a single but very visible bug with it (and I'm not alone, it seems). You've probably already heard of it. But before I go on, I just want to say I don't want to start a blame-game, I'm just looking for an idea of how to get my forum to work GC and @ehren.'s themes (in this instance Chameleon Light) unfortunately do not always play nice together. This becomes apparent when I go to a Collaboration Category with Collabs listed below. The collabs are all transparent with indistinguishable text floating over the background image. It just doesn't work. Here's someone else's example: https://www.ipsfocus.com/forums/uploads/monthly_11_2015/post-19877-0-69854900-1448368448.jpg Searching Ehren's support-forums, other are having the same problem (these forums are closed to non-customers AFAIK). It seems that the collabs listed under Collab Categories are missing a div wrapper like this: <div class='ipsBox'> xxx </div> Do you think that is indeed the issue? I know GC works fine with the default IPS4 theme and that Ehren's themes can be very demanding on the framework. Can you think of a way for me - and others - to fix this issue, even haphazardly (while keeping Ehren's theme, of course )? GC and Ehren's popular themes are both awesome additions to the IPS4 product, it'd be a shame if they just couldn't work together.

    It's not every day, entering an internet forum, that I immediately hit that "full screen" button. Good job.
