  1. Hey peeps,

    How can I contruct an if statement within the Core > Front > Global > Tag template that accomplishes the following:

    IF $member_id is ( x OR y ) AND $tag is ( 'this' OR 'that')

    $tag (displays tag)


    Don't display $tag (I guess just leave this part blank and nothing will be displayed.


    In a nutshell, as the tag template is called, I want to show certain tags only to certain members, all other tags are shown to everyone.

    Thanks for any help!

  2. How does Commerce handle situations where a client purchases say 10 items of the same product at once? I see that I can add the dimensions and weight PER item and Commerce will calculate shipping via EasyPost based on this but it will estimate the same amount of shipping for 1 item vs an order of say 10 items. This obviously would be wrong.

    Is there a setting for this? I checked but nothing really stood out. If combined shipping is not allowed, this would be a deal breaker for me. =(

  3. I see but I also see how convenient it would be. Just like the ability to add forum topics or Pages articles via the +Create menu link, I can see the logical thing to do is to add products to the Commerce Database as well via this route. Oh well, I was just asking if there was a way to do it but I guess not.

  4. Is there an easier way for my wife to add products to her store (Commerce) without having to log in, go to AdminCP and log in once again. Then navigate the menus until she finally gets to the Products section.

    Wouldn't it be much easier, faster and slick to be able to add products via the + Create link on the page's menu?

    Our company blog actually utilizes Pages as it is more from a single source (IPS) rather than our Blogs application is more for community blogging from many users, whom may not be related.

    Our company blog is at: https://invisioncommunity.com/news/

    So is that link a Pages app or Blogs app? I need to see a live Blogs app, so I can see how it looks and works, before I commit to it.

  6. LOL I must be blind but I have searched all over this website looking for the blogs and I just can't find them. I am thinking about adding the blogs app to one of my websites and I want to see how they look on a live server.

    Enable HTML posting for your group. 

    Thanks, @Adriano Faria

    Please ensure that your group that you belong to has permission to post HTML. You can find this in ACP -> Members -> Groups -> edit group -> Can post HTML?

    Please note: it is only recommend to provide this to a group which you have the upmost confidence and trust with and not the whole community. The ability to post HTML can not only cause intentional malicious harm but unintentional as well. Thus, it is usually disabled by default. 

    Thanks, @Jim M... Ok, I will enable it only for admins, who is basically me and a family member. 😁


  8. Would anyone know why would the source button not show up in my toolbar? There is no source button in the toolbar editor page in settings.

    I have another website which does show the source button even though it does not have a source button in the toolbar editor.



    This is the button I'm referring to:



    I just noticed realized that the page that does have a source button is a PAGES app. While the one not showing a source button is from a FORUMS app. Could this be it? Source button does not show up when creating a topic in forums?

    You'll want to make sure error reporting and logging is turned on for php and then review those logs to see what's wrong. Also check your web server logs.

    Common issues may be not having enabled/installed needed PHP extensions.

    I did the above and this is the error I get:

    Fatal error: Uncaught Error: Call to undefined function IPS\mb_internal_encoding() in /home/*****/public_html/init.php:541 Stack trace: #0 /home/******/public_html/init.php(1532): IPS\IPS::init() #1 /home/*****/public_html/index.php(12): require_once('/home/*****...') #2 {main} thrown in /home/*****/public_html/init.php on line 541


  10. Hello all,

    This is what happened:

    1. I initiated the upgrade of my Community from IPS v4.4.10 to the latest version of IPS

    2. During the upgrade process, I received the warning that my PHP 7.2.x was deprecated and I would need to upgrade to 7.3.x+

    3. I continued with the upgrade process and everything went well.

    4. Website was upgraded to IPS while still running PHP 7.2.x and everything was working well.

    5. I upgraded PHP to 7.3 on my server and applied it to my site.

    6. Now when I try to access my website, I get the following error: HTTP Error 500


    The only way I can get my website to work again is by reverting back to PHP 7.2.x on my server.

    How can I remedy this?

    Well, the obvious case would be that patch isn’t required since it was installed before or the latest update that was made already included it. 

    Are you sure the problem you want to patch actually still exists?

    Unless these patches auto-install, which I doubt they do, the latest one has not been installed on the site in question.

    Yes, the problem still exists, which is that the Spotify embeds do not work, and that was supposedly fixed in the latest hotfix. My site's IPS version is 4.4.10 which was installed prior to the latest hotfix and the bug came about when Spotify changed how they process embeds and it broke this feature on 4.4.10.

    The only reason a patch would not show up as available on the other site is because it is already installed. You may have updated to the latest release on that site after the patch was issued.

    Hey BFarber! Do these patches or autofixes install automatically on their own? I'm the sole administrator on this site and I sure haven't installed it. lol


    UPDATE: On the site that I did install the latest patch, I tried embedding a Spotify link and it still gives the error that it's can't embed it.

    I won't bother with patches. I'll just wait until the next version of IPS is released and update both sites then.

  12. Hello all,

    I currently have two websites fully licensed by IPS and on one website, I ran the "Something isn't working correctly" option and it showed there was a patch available, while on my other website, it does not show the patch being available.

    Since the patch addresses the current issues with Spotify embeds not working, I would like to be able to install it.

    Why would it show up as available on one website while not on another website? What should I look for?
