  1. The example I showed is actually using a different IPS app to community map. Sorry if that wasn't clear
  2. Interested in this. I now sell hosting on 3 separate servers so was looking for a billing option also, and noticed invision have stopped this.
  3. @DawPi has a very nice little plugin that I use that will also change any amazon affiliate links posted to use your own amazon affiliate code.
  4. Ive just done more or less the same thing on my site with user based permissions. Regular guests and members get to see a map at a fixed location which is of no real use. To be able to zoom right in they need to upgrade. Image below is what regular members see. Enough to see theres something in their area but not enough to present any security issues.
  5. The answers simple. Restrict the map zoom. Is there any real need for people to be able to zoom right in to see the very street someones on?
  6. Yellow pages does say it comes with support for google maps though, so must be possible for search functionality to be added?
  7. No proximity search function with this app?
  8. by city, postcode would be even better
  9. I see theres map locations on here. Is there a facility to search links by geographical location? If not would you consider adding this function either as core or as a private job?
  10. Actually you might be able to ignore this. It doesn't appear to be linked, but I could swear when I looked 10 minutes ago one of the words was autolinked. Will screenshot if it happens to reappear
  11. Is there a way to override this on only certain pages? I have a series of pages databases that i want to hyperlink words from the forum topics to, but i dont want the same word on the database page to be hyperlinked to itself
  12. Slightly confused over this. Apparently theres no longer any need to get a site submitted for approval That being the case, what exactly am I supposed to put on this field?
  13. I have been given a quote by a developer to make an app that will get populate data from an IPS database or application. He is not an IPS dev but seems to think its not a problem. My question is, has anyone done similar, and if so are there any hurdles to overcome? I have had previous experience with apple and android apps and they would constantly break everytime iOS was updated. I am concerned a combination of that along with IPS updates might cause a lot of problems. I have in mind a couple of different apps. One of them would require a member to belong to a premium usergroup to access the data. This would obviously mean having to log into the app with their IPS username and password, and i'm hoping that it will also be doable to accomplish having this all sync up together. Look forward to your replies.
  14. I'm looking to add a new feature to my site that shows where freelancers/subcontractors are in the country. I would want it to be quite simple whereby the member can set their map and also include a couple fields showing their skillset. Would this app acheive this out of the box? If not, would you be able to do some private custom work to make it so?
  15. Thats a massive shame, you were mostly there already werent you?
  16. What method would you recommend please
  17. Thanks for this. The second part for the files, is this images etc? If so do I need to back these up beings as i'm using AWS for these anyway?
  18. Looking for a solution for automatic backups. Im moving my site across to a new VPS which only takes daily backups and only stores for one day. Would like to set something up where automatic backups can be made and preferably sent to a destination. Is this possible?
  19. Possible to remove the option for adding photos in the editor or will this affect the text editor globally? I get quite a high proportion of advertisers insert the images there instead of using the featured image button.
  20. Is there an easy way to pull this figure from the dashboard and have it automatically update the figure on the front end? Getting bored having to do it manually every few weeks.
  21. True, it would render lots of things meaningless. Still it would be funny to change the c word to babe, and seeing members calling each other a total babe This is actually a good idea, thanks
  22. Swearings getting a bit out of hand on my forum lately, probably due to everyone being bored out of their minds, frustrated, skint etc etc because of Covid. Haven't activated the swear filter up till now, but as the forum is for professionals and is widely visited by the public I think I need to do something. Rather than just replace words with ***** I thought it might be fun to replace them with alternatives, might make the posted second guess trying to beat the filter, specially if I cover all bases. Anyone care to put forward some suggestions? Needs to be subtle enough as to not make a mockery of the place Example: c word - awesome guy
