    Great! The nav menu link is working and the new description feature is great. Thanks so much!

    Note: I did have to fully remove and reinstall the app, otherwise it would give me an error...which is not entirely unexpected in this situation.
    INSERT INTO `videodirectory_videos` ( `title`, `video_url`, `video_description`, `author`, `entry_date`, `c_id` )...

    So if anyone else had already installed the 1.0 version, keep in mind you'll need to uninstall it from what I can tell.

    You are welcome sir.

    Regarding the error, it looks like the description field was not added by the upgrader. That can be fixed with running a simple sql query should anyone else run into this problem.

    One more thing...this should hopefully be it!!! 🙂

    It looks like the "Categories" sidebar does not display properly on a mobile view/mobile-width sized device.

    On a normal desktop browser view, of course it is fine, but when you shrink the window width to go into mobile-nav mode, things are still good at "tablet"-ish width...but shrink it down further to the minimum "phone"-ish width the specific categories disappear.

    This was tested on the default IPS theme as well. And as you can see, my categories are not particularly long or anything either. I verified this on an actual mobile device as well, just to be sure.

    This is definitely an important bug I hope gets corrected soon.

    Also, I would suggest that the categories list be put above the video content in mobile-menu view, if at all possible. With a lot of videos on a mobile, before you can select the category you would have to go down through a huge amount of videos first to choose the category. I think even if you have to do this for both desktop+mobile view instead of leaving the sidebar categories in desktop view, it would be worth it. It's great if you can have the desktop/sidebar categories and a separate "above the videos" area for mobile, but if not...it's better they both be up there if you cannot easily make it desktop/mobile view specific.



    I will look into this as well. Thank you for reporting it. It will be included in the next version, which will include some new major features as well.

    In meanwhile, I have released a new version that fixed the issue with the breadcrumb that you reported and also added the description field, which can be anbled/desabled from the Settings page of the app,

    To whoever "replied" to my review, note that it reviews can be edited. Although, it wouldn't hurt if the developer had actual instructions. And the permissions are indeed set, but the problem still remains.


    The screenshots I have uploaded say all really. Anyways, this is not the permission for the app. You have to go to the groups tab. Please see the 4 th screenshot.

    And if you run into any difficulty with the app, posting at the support topic and giving the author a chance to reply would be the way to go and not run to the reviews and leave a bad one for something that it is not the author 's fault. Just saying.

    Thanks so much! Obviously everyone has a laundry list of ideas, but the description will help a lot. There is one more thing I wanted to point out specifically. It only took me 5 minutes to run into this, and 2 minutes for the other admin to run into this:


    If you click on the Nav link you get a "page not found" error, which looks really bad from the user experience perspective.

    So the main menu goes to:

    mysite.com/index.php?app=videodirectory&amp;module=videos&amp;controller=videos              <-- (works as expected via menu tab)

    mysite/index.php?app=videodirectory&amp;module=videos&amp;controller=                                    <---- (page not found using the nav menu)


    Good catch sir. I had missed it, thank you for bringing it to my attention. I will look into fixing it for the next version.

    I think something right below would work well for most people, and have it be something entirely optional.

    And I could not resist and had to add rating stars as well. 🙂 My understanding though is that would take some work to add as there is a whole system for programming in rating-ability I think? But maybe for a future release I hope you will consider that!!!

     For now, the descriptions alone would be very helpful!!!

    Yes, the rating system and the user comment system would take some work to implement. And right now I am a bit tight on free time. But I will see what I can do to add the description field though.

    I would like user-comments, video descriptions and star-ratings as well! 

    And of these, I assume that adding a description feature would be really easy to implement?


    Yes, the description feature would be rather easy to implement. Can you please post a screenshot as to where you want it to be shown?

    Can members comment on posted videos with this plugin?

    If not, i would like to request that as a feature, along with the option to add a video description to posted videos.



    No, members can not comment on posted videos in the current version. Anyways, I will add it on the to do list.

    I want to delete all topics that are older than 2555 days. What im doing wrong here?



    The plugin does not work for topics that are older than x days, but for topics that have not had any reply in more than x days. It is a big difference.

    Anyways, the plugin will not delete them immediately after it has been enabled. It adds a task that runs daily and then it will perform the tasks that it has been set to.

    What do you mean by lock setting? The first option which says close/prune old topics is enabled. Sorry if I am confusing.

    Are the old topics still not locked? They are not closed immediately after you enable the settings as the plugin adds a task that runs daily.

    Thank you for verifying my issue.

    What issues are you having with my plugin? The one that I quoted below?

    On 9/16/2018 at 12:36 AM, Christforums said:

    Seems this plugin doesn't work with the OP. I was able to create a thread with just one character when the minimum words were set at 10. However, the warning does show up in responses which require 10 words in "responses" to the OP.

    Recommendation: It would be also nice if one could set a global forum requirement instead of having to set each forum and sub forum independently. This was excruciating on a forum with lots of forums and sub-forums.

    It is stated clearly at the overview/description, that the plugin works with posts only and not for topics. So your issue is non existant.

    True, we can't provide access to our forum or ftp, and that's on us; our problem.

    But every other support requested in private form have always the same response: extra payment or others. We already (and rightly) spent money for the plugin, and even an extra for adding the limit to Topics too (first post).

    We asked the creator support the first time: he said that may one of the plugins that we have installed may interfere and causing conflicts. For that, he would have to recode a good portion of the plugin and that would take some time and it falls under extras. But he wanted to charge not money for it, but 15 posts/topics at his forum (?). We obviusly rejected.

    Then we asked a TeamViewer session to find this problem on ftp: he rejected.

    At the end, on the third request for support, Faqole says that he can try to istall the complete list of plugins and apps that we have at his test forum and work there. But this will cost another extra, 25 euro. We rejected.

    End of story.

    The issues that you are claiming to have can not be reproduced by me. I gave you access to my forum as well where you checked it out and admited that it worked fine.

    The plugins are developed to work on a vanilla version of the forum and not to be compatible with any plugins that you have installed. You have quite a lot of plugins installed, some of them downloaded from warez sites. One of them might cause a conflict, and all they had to be checked to see if it interefers with my plugin, and all that cost time. I asked you for access to your forum to check the issue there, you refused. I asked you to send me all custom plugins/apps that you have installed so I could install them at my test forum and see if I could fine which one causes the conflict. And of course I charge extra for this as it takes quite some time. You refused again. That is fine, but unless I develop psychic powers or consult the magic 8 ball, there is nothing that I can do.

    Sorry, that's not correct:) 

     We check in accordance with our guidelines, but it is not certifying that the resource is bug free. We ensure that it won't break anything in the core, we ensure that it moves uploaded files if the file storage changes, we ensure that it follows the rules from our guides like that you have to call the parent method and such stuff, but it's not our responsibility to test the functionality of MP submissions. We stopped this a while ago because some people abused the MP and the MP moderators as their free testers.

    I did not claim that it was bug free, only that it has been tested/checked by you guys. And I am sure that you would not leave items in MP if they did not work or broke the forum in some way or other.

    So this does not work and he doesn't offer support? 😐

    I was interested in purchasing this but if there is no support and it doesn't work then it's kinda pointless. I just need the minimum char count to work. Can anyone confirm that's working?


    The plugin works fine. It has been tested by the MP moderators before being approved.

    And I do provide support, but the user in question does not give me access to his forum and without access there is not much that I can do.
