    Runar reacted to Paul E. in Links in forum descriptions pointing to old domain   
    I agree, @Runar.
    Support ticket was #67332. I noted that it may be a load balancing thing then. I don't permanently accept security warnings to bypass them, and when they told me they couldn't reproduce, I tried again then and the links worked without any errors.
    These links are everywhere in older posts, and I provided this link in the ticket:

    @Michael.J can you just acknowledge this so we know whether to wait or move on. I can see you have been online multiple times but not read my PM yet, or responded in here. Can you give us a heads up please?

    For everyone else, I'm currently working on a huge update with support for 4.5. The new version will be an application instead of a plugin, as this makes it far easier to provide new functionality.
    In addition to official support for 4.5, I'm working on the following new features:
    Choose between multiple markers when marking a topic. Set custom background color and text color on the marker badges. Choose marker badge position (before or after topic title). Send notifications to topic starters when their topics are marked and/or unmarked. Support for "Questions" forums. I hope to release the new version later this week or early next week.
    Suggestions for more features are always welcome!

    You don't need a plugin to show the number of views in the topic summary. Simply add the following four lines to the theme file forums > topics > activity:
    <li class='cTopicOverview__statItem ipsType_center'> <span class='cTopicOverview__statTitle ipsType_light ipsTruncate ipsTruncate_line'>{lang="views"}</span> <span class='cTopicOverview__statValue'>{number="$topic->views" format="short"}</span> </li> Insert the code on line 18, and the number of views will be shown next to the number of replies:

    Deprecation of the interface directory
    In order to ensure Invision Community is compatible with modern cloud infrastructures we are deprecating the use of the interface directory in favour of a proper front loader system.
    We're working on a new solution which will allow HTTP requests to the interface directory.
    This means, any JS, HTML, GIF files uploaded there will work, even PHP will work, BUT you'll have no access to the IPS framework there.
     
    Last months common submission issues:
    All in all the quality increased, but there are still 2 common issues which are worth to be mentioned.
    Versions (again) 😉 
    Please try to pay more attention to this. We're thinking about including an check for this to forbid any submissions where the new version is lower than the previous, but until this happens, please, please pay more attention to this.  It's one of the really unnecessary reasons for a approval delay.. Editors
    Please keep in mind that you can't just use any of the existing EditorLocations in your 3rd party applications and plugins.
    There's a lot going on in the background and there's a lot logic related to the specific area used in the EditorLocation Extension, so one can't just use e.g. the Admin EditorLocation for the editor field in his custom form. Last but not least, please try to install your application or plugin on a local test instance and also run the upgrade from the stable last release before you submit it to the marketplace. You'll be surprised how often we get submissions which result in an error while the installation.

    Plugins are not always available for what you need done or updated quickly.   If you code your own (cloud users don't have that option anymore) you still have to spend time developing it and maintaining it.  For cloud users you can't test plugins on a demo cloud site, so you have to go live and see what happens after each upgrade.  
    A reasonable number of template edits seems no worse than a similar number of plugins to deal with.  You are told if there is a difference directly and can quickly fix only those that need it.  I use my own template "bits" if more than a single line of code so the edit is simply a single line easy to recognize using a template insert {template=""....}.
    At one time I rolled my own plugin for template changes, but found maintaining it more difficult than just modifying the templates and had to carry a source license, even though main site is cloud hosted, to keep it up to date.

    If you only plan to host a blog, not use the forum or any of the other applications, then there are far better options.
    But if you really want to use Invision Community, have you considered their cloud option? If not, it should be easily installed on every serious hosting provider.

    Runar reacted to Makoto in We need webp NOW   
    My stance is if you want WebP support, just use a good CDN service like CloudFlare.
    It's a much more sensible solution. CloudFlare converts images to WebP, optionally performing only lossless or lossy compression, ensures WebP images are only served to clients that support it, and requires absolutely no additional processing power or storage on your end.
    The same can be done with other reputable CDN services I believe.
    If you are bare metal and absolutely don't want to use Cloudflare or so on, there is also mod_pagespeed as mentioned above.

    I don't think you can do it automatically without using third-party plugins, but you can use Promotion to share topics and posts to your Facebook group.
    Edit: I've never used IFTTT in combination with Invision Community, and the Zapier integration is not yet available.

    Runar reacted to ahc in SendGrid pathetic service and ratings!   
    @breatheheavy  SparkPost is compatible via SMTP only, but it used to be fully integrated just like SendGrid until Invision removed it.  It's cheaper and more reliable in a lot of ways than SendGrid ever has been.
    I haven't looked too much into other options outside of SparkPost because we switched back to using our server which is doing okay for now.
    I forgot to also note that when I first created my SendGrid account, they suspended it a few hours later because they thought I stole someone's registered business information to sign up for an account without giving me the option to verify.  It took several weeks for me to prove that I owned the business.  SendGrid can shove it where the sun doesn't shine for all I care.

    We stopped using SendGrid for this reason.  More than half of our emails were not being delivered because we kept being assigned IP addresses that were blocked by most of the top providers.  When I sent in a ticket, they told me I would need to pay more money or just deal with it because they don't try to get their IPs unblocked.
    I dealt with it by deleting my SendGrid account.  They got rid of SparkPost integration because of numerous issues and terrible customer service, but I actually had zero issues using SparkPost where I've always had those issues with SendGrid.

    A very alarming situation. SendGrid has gone nose down from 10/10 to 0/10.
    Trust Pilot Review: https://www.trustpilot.com/review/sendgrid.com
    Would someone from IPS can elaborate why you guys are still providing SendGrid integration despite its poor service and ratings?
    This is end of 2020, we need some good email provider(s) API integration to the IPS software, like AWS SES API etc.

    Yes, that's something we have considered. It's just an intensive operation to do a search and replace across a database. Imagine a site with millions of posts.

    There might be plugins providing this functionality, but it's quite easy to achieve yourself by simply editing your theme.
    In your theme, find the file forums > front > forums > topicRow and add the following inside the class attribute on line 50 (the <li> element):
    {{if $row->mapped('featured')}}customFeatured{{endif}} Then, edit your custom.css file to set a background color for the new customFeatured class:
    .customFeatured { background-color: pink; } This should give all featured topics a nice background color.

    It is recommended to output webp files in a <picture> tag instead of an <img> tag, which supports specifying multiple versions. That's something we'd have to take into account.
    Also, ios14 added support apparently: https://css-tricks.com/webp-image-support-coming-to-ios-14/

    Runar reacted to Matt in So much empty space...   
    We were in beta for months, alpha for about a month before that. We've been talking about 4.5 since last year, and announced the new front end theme in April. We've been running a beta version on our own community here for months.

    I understand your point that you can't be expected to obsessively follow every bit of news we release, but with a major upgrade you should take a short time to investigate the changes before pressing the button.

    I appreciate the feedback but I think it's a little unfair to state that you didn't know what was coming and now regret it.
    We also have to design for a wide variety of screen sizes, so the layout has to be consistent and modular.

    It's easy to see a lot of whitespace on a single screen with a short topic title and few logged in actions at full screen on a 24" monitor, but when you consider this:


    I don't feel that there's much space to save here without cramming it into two lines and accepting some buttons will overflow.

    I appreciate the feedback here. We're listening as always.

    My only request is that we keep it polite. We don't need to scream in each other's faces to be heard. If we don't reply or action the feedback immediately, it isn't because we disagree, or are ignoring what you're saying; it's more likely that we need to consider every change as a team and this takes time.
