    James25 got a reaction from IP-Gamers in Renewal every year instead of every 6 months   
    Would you please make it possible to renew every year instead of every 6 months?
    There's literally no case I can think of where we'd want our forum subscription to expire any time soon, and making it every 6 months just adds extra work for us and for you.
    Thanks,

    James25 got a reaction from CoffeeCake in Support caching URL for database-stored files   
    It's actually useful in cases you might not expect. Take a look: https://themes.evolvapor.com/
    When a new .ecigtheme is uploaded, I have a background task that checks for new uploads, generates preview images using our software, and inserts the new images in the database. If I were doing this with the filesystem, I'd need to give this task write permission, and the ability to reach, the directory on the server hosting IPB.
    Regarding S3... Being in the vaping industry -- and really, this is true for anyone in an industry entrenched, wealthy interests would like to be rid of -- we try to be self-reliant where we can. You never know that you won't wake up the next day and be disconnected for some reason invented the day before. For us, and many others, "better solutions like S3" effectively do /not/ exist today.
    If I were able to cache these, the hit rate would be 99%+.

    James25 got a reaction from SeNioR- in Support caching URL for database-stored files   
    Hello,
    It would be very helpful if database-stored files could be assigned a caching URL. Right now, they are at /index.php?file=xyz
    I am using a CDN for file-based storage, which covers JavaScript, CSS and emoticons, but there are still database-stored files such as user profile pictures etc. At this point I'd say this is the bulk of my data transfer. They don't seem to cache for very long in the user's browser either, despite barely ever changing.
    I do recognize this would require the user's setup to support friendly URLs. Most do, though.
    Thank you!

    James25 got a reaction from bfarber in referrerpolicy for Google Fonts   
    Hello,
    Please consider adding referrerpolicy="origin" or referrerpolicy="no-referrer" to the Google Fonts CSS <link> tag. Right now, if one uses a Google Font (the default on IPB 4.2 when I upgraded, certainly), it gives away the full URL the user is browsing to Google. Google claims they are only keeping track of font popularity, so there is no harm in doing this that I can see. If not having a referrer is an issue, referrerpolicy="origin" would solve the 'giving the entire browsing history of all IPB users away to Google' problem while still providing the requesting site.
    Thanks!
