  1. I have a test instance of 4.5.1 inaccessible to the web, requiring HTTP Basic Auth for everything except /api. When I try to use the new "Sign into Marketplace" feature, I get this error message: This is most likely a result of the basic auth, but I'm unable to find what specific endpoint the marketplace server is hitting. Anyone know if there's an endpoint I can exclude from basic auth to make this work?
  2. Found the issue. \IPS\Content::searchResultSummaryLanguage is what adds that text, and the core system template "searchResult" only displays that if there's a container. So I need a container. After doing the bare minimum to get containers implemented, rebuilding the search index because the lack of containers was cached, and after fixing some undefined language stuff, it works:
  3. I have a \IPS\Content\Item class that implements \IPS\Content\Searchable. I've successfully gotten it to display arbitrary content in the search snippet in expanded view: I have not, however, succeeded in getting anything in condensed view. Other content items have a "user posted a ___ in ___", but mine shows nothing: When I look at the other applications shown in this picture, this isn't stored in the snippet template. As far as I can tell, something's displaying the language item "x_created_(class)" or "x_created_(class)_in" here, but I don't know how to tell the system to do so for my content item. Simply making sure those language items exist isn't enough, and based on other parts of the site, I'd expect to see the placeholder if it was. Does anyone know what I need to do for this specific behavior? In case it's relevant, my content class does not have a container. Occasionally this results a quirk I can work around, and I don't know if this is another one.
  4. That's what I needed. Nginx wasn't routing calls to .php urls to index.php. If anyone else has this issue, my nginx config looks something like this now. location /home/ { index index.php index.html; try_files $uri $uri/ /home/index.php; location ~ \.php$ { try_files $uri /home/index.php; # THIS is the part I was missing include our_fastcgi_params.conf; # Stores fastcg_pass and friends } # (Other stuff for uploads and ACP) } This post also has some useful stuff if the above doesn't fix any future reader's issue:
  5. One of my site's members alerted me to some broken links, all of which are old URLs from when we used to run vBulletin. Turns out the converter app got updated while the redirect pages didn't (i.e. showthread.php and friends). I'm seeing this in the system logs: I found this thread saying that apparently these redirect files haven't been needed for quite a while, but it's still broken for me: When I use the redirect file, I get the error "Something went wrong. Please try again.". When I remove it, I get "File not found." thrown from php-fpm because the file doesn't exist. Does anyone know how redirects are supposed to work in the current version and/or how to get them working again?
  6. I would only like lazy loading if it didn't distract from viewing the site. If not done properly, like what I've seen on this site so far (looking forward to trying the fix), images telegraph themselves as they pop in, making the user notice the lazy loading rather than the content on the page. I do see your point about bandwidth usage though. That's one of the reasons why I haven't moved my site to the cloud: the bandwidth usage costs more than all the other resources combined. For now, I stick to my dedicated server that doesn't charge for bandwidth usage while simultaneously providing 25x the speed I actually need. How did we get here, bandwidth potentially costing hundreds more per month than a physical server? I blame ISPs, but the root cause is probably capitalism.
  7. Lazy loading seems like a neat idea, but after scrolling through this thread, it distracts from the normal experience of scrolling down a webpage. I reloaded and hit F12 to watched the network traffic on that page. It didn't seem to matter how long I sat at the top of the page; the images didn't load until I scrolled down. Is it possible to trigger the image loads before the user scrolls down? If a user spends a lot of time reading the first post, the browser could be using that time to download the images that will be needed when scrolling down. Another thing that results from the lazy loading is that images just pop into place, changing the vertical page size. Is it possible to save some sort of size information, so that the initial page load reserves the visible area of the image before loading the real image*? This might not be needed if my first suggestion is implemented, since this is how images already work most places on the internet. * The first image in this blog post implies that might already be intended. If it is, then it's not working for me.
  8. I whipped something up on my site using forum sidebars, but this is a manual process, and I too would like a specialized option. There used to be a local moderators plugin, but it was removed the day I was about to buy it. That probably means it was far too outdated.
  9. This would be helpful from time to time. Just last week (or maybe the week before that) I had to make a manual DB edit to tweak something. For anything bigger than an edit of the warn message, however, I'd still opt for revoking and reissuing.
  10. It's currectly not a feature it seems. See this feedback thread for opinions similar to yours:
  11. I think it's a bug in the default theme. The submit file button is visible to everyone who can upload a file in any category, and clicking it gives the user this error. I opened a low priority ticket earlier for today after identifying what I think is the culprit. I'd post it here, but it's not showing in the client area (since it's low priority I guess).
  12. Our site has a lot of nested categories to organize our vast number of similar-but-distinct files and could really benefit from this, being able to view all of the top category or any combination of the subcategories.
  13. I got another email from this guy asking to be unsubscribed. Turns out that once you follow a thread and opt-in to email notifications, this overrides all other notification settings, including unchecking all Email options in the notification settings, and the only way to make it stop is to change the settings for that particular piece of followed content... which is hidden in a list of various types of content that the average user won't want to look through.
  14. He set these settings, a year or two after following a thread: This appears to apply only to new content and not previously-followed content, which was hidden in one of the sidebar links in the first post.
  15. I got an email from a user who's been receiving digest emails and would like them to stop. Seeing that he already unsubscribed from newsletters, I checked the unsubscribe link at the bottom of the email, which led to https://(our IPS install)/followed/?filter=digest. This is what I see: At a glance, it looks like he's not following anything. However, after clicking all the links on the side, I found that he's following a single forum topic. It would be nice if there was an aggregate view of all followed content to improve the UX of unsubscribing from notification emails.
