  1. Just a quick update that after a month of third-party resources being blamed, it turns out (yet again) that it was an Invision issue. That's okay. I don't have any problem with any bugs or issues discovered in any application or Invision, but I have to say that I think this could have been resolved much sooner if there wasn't this uncomfortable bias against 3rd Party resources. I am just happy that the issue is being resolved, but after going through this so many times, it can get very frustrating. I say that with great affection because I am in awe of all of you who do this kind of work. I just don't want to go through this again.
  2. Thanks for the response and encouragement. Yes, my community would suffer a blow if we remove some of these vital additions. Plus, I love supporting developers and creators. And The canned responses are expected. They are annoying, but expected. It's the additional commentary along the way that tells me that using plugins and applications will always be a problem (even though they rarely have been). My community hasn't been able to register any new members for about a month. The blame has been on an application that I disabled. I disabled all plugins, all applications, and the issue remains, yet it is somehow still third-party to blame, so I am just left with nothing but a broken site. I don't know what to do. For now, I'm patiently waiting for a solution. I am very excited about this and I hope it works soon. So far, I've had more issues than ever recently. I've been with invision for years, so I trust all of this will be sorted out.
  3. Yeah, if there was an update to something and it broke and no indication that it was broken during the upgrade, I don't know what I'm expected to do. I'm not a developer and when the issue remains after disabling all plugins and applications, it seems like something more is involved than third-party, no?
  4. I always disable and update before asking for support. I always expect that this will be their first assumption. I always tell them I did so, but I often get a canned response that asks me to do exactly what I already explained I did. Often the issue remains even after everything is disabled. We continue troubleshooting and find the issue. Support is fantastic! But... there is ALWAYS a comment of discouragement and scolding for using third-party resources, so that's what this post is asking: 1. I wonder if others are as discouraged from using them as I have experienced, and 2. if we are going to be discouraged from using third-party tools, it seems like a good idea to stop buying them and using them. I am always up to date based on what information is available to me, and I always reach out to the developers for support if it's related to their application and everyone responds with amazing support. Many of the plugins, themes, and applications are just incredibly useful things that make our communities so much better. I really don't like that I may have to remove all of them.
  5. To be fair, I am not talking about the current ticket. We were still troubleshooting. I was talking about a general tone and discouragement from using third-party resources. My main question is: should we consider disabling and removing all of them to avoid issues? Not to bring discussion of this ticket to this thread, but since it's here... why does the issue remain even with all plugins/applications disabled?
  6. I love Invision and their support is top-notch and I have been with them for years, but almost every time there is an issue, I am scolded and sometimes shamed for using plugins, applications, and themes. Almost always. There is rarely a reply of support that doesn't include a comment that is basically, "well, what did you expect since you are using plugins, applications, themes?" And often the support takes longer because the issue is immediately dismissed as a third-party issue. The irony is that in almost every case, it turns out it was not an issue with an application, plugin, or theme. I totally get that we have to troubleshoot and that it is practical to start with the assumption that it might be a third-party issue, but why are we even using these third-party resources if we are just going to be scolded for using them? I've asked the team the same question and they assure me that they are not scolding me, lol, but blaming third-parties over and over and telling me that I wouldn't have issues if I didn't use them, etc. just makes me wonder why we even have them. I am on the brink of disabling all themes and third party resources.
  7. This application keeps getting blamed for issues in login and registration. Invision keeps telling me it is incompatible and to disable it. What should I do?
  8. I was JUST coming to check on this. Because it is out of date, it is blocking all new registrations for some reason, causing EXO errors. Thank you for your hard work!
  9. Good lord... I was half-asleep and missed that. I am so sorry. You are awesome.
  10. Hey Taman! I'm not sure what is happening here, but I logged in today to find this happening... https://www.awesomescreenshot.com/video/328632?key=2f540a49ef1a3ce3867c9da68e6a7220 I updated the theme, but nothing changed.
  11. Ohhh where would I put this? Inside the previous code?
  12. Oh shoot, I see now. Thanks! Do you know of any other options that can be added for more intuitive use, like with a button and in-browser view? Thanks!
  13. I added all of this in Custom but it did not show up anywhere. Any suggestions for what I may have done wrong?
  14. I think you cracked the case!!! Thank you so much!!! Big gigantic hugs to you!!
  15. I got this error when I tried to publish: But since it has not been distributed since December of 2019, I'm not sure what this means.
