  1. I see there is a member shop extension by @TheJackal84 - but I wonder if anyone knows whether that can be used with commerce to accept real payments? Or is the official downloads app the best workaround for members selling their own items for cash? Thanks!
  2. I am assuming this still doesn't exist then? For some reason I thought it did, but I can't seem to find it (which led me to this thread).
  3. Thanks for the reply. I'm not sure how complicated the features I mentioned are, but I'd be interested in financially contributing to their development if you were open to it once the craziness of the 4.5 update is over with? (either as a separate application or for this application if you were happy to expand its features to be more friendly to uploaded videos). I have spoken with several people here who were eagerly hoping for something like this.
  4. Thank you very much! 🙂 Could you please confirm which of these features are included or not before I purchase: Auto generate thumbnail for uploaded files? Can set permissions for who can access gallery and who can upload videos? Can compress uploaded videos? Can use S3 as storage for uploaded videos? Videos have an inbuilt video player as opposed to relying on the user's browser? Thanks again.
  5. Hi @Michael.J, Just curious, would you be open to the idea of allowing user uploaded videos to your application (i.e. upload direct to the site) as opposed to simply linking to media from youtube, vimeo etc? I realise this can be done in the IPS gallery, but it's very clunky. Videos are called images. There's no automatic thumbnail generation. There's no compression. It relies on user's own video player rather than a standard one. Etc Lots of features are missing from it that make it very usable as a video gallery, whereas your application seems like it would be ideal for this.
  6. Hi all, are there any settings that need to be changed from the default when it comes to using IPS with cloudflare? I am not talking about optimisation, but instead from a perspective of ensuring everything runs as it should without any issues. Thanks a lot.
  7. I was so disappointed to see 4.5 seems to have no video improvements at all. I appreciate there's only so many things that can be prioritised, but I just feel like video content is so fundamental now, and yet video support still feels so far behind with ips. I mean the gallery feature literally still calls a video an 'image'. Would love to see some kind of video encoding, ability to generate thumbnails, and a custom/standard video player etc. Would totally transform the gallery (and forum) experience.
  8. Hi everyone, sorry for an incredibly simple question, but once paid for an app on the marketplace (on this website) if it has 'reoccuring payments' do these automatically bill via PayPal? I cannot find any trace of them on my paypal account, so does that mean at the renewal term I would check out once again if I wish to continue getting support/updates for the app? Confirmation would be very appreciated. Thanks.
  9. Fingers cross for invision community 5.0 maybe? 😁 I just feel like the videos in the gallery right now feel tacked on the end (perhaps highlighted best by the fact that videos are still referred to as an 'image' when editing them in the gallery). As the internet becomes more and more driven by video content, I would love to see Invision adapt.
  10. A long shot I know, but I'd love to see the gallery become a truly video-friendly place. > Automatic thumbnail option (generated from midway point in video perhaps) > Video compression options > Inbuilt video player, rather than relying on users browser's video player. Would be willing to pay for anyone who developed these features too.
  11. Oh, I would have thought the: "Conversations allowed to start per day" and "Conversations allowed to start per minute" settings would be for preventing spam. What I'm talking about is "Conversation storage quota". If this is in place to prevent new users signing up and sending messages it's very inefficient, as a user can simply delete the conversations once they've sent them and send more, so it doesn't pose any real restriction on spam like the above two options do. What I'm proposing is an option of "Message storage quota". I appreciate it's not something every community need
  12. Apologies for the wrong terminology. I don't mean limit the number of replies per specific conversation, I mean limit the total replies that can be stored within a user's inbox. I would assume the reason for the current setting of 'max conversations allowed' per user-group is for: a) saving storage space b) providing an incentive to upgrade your account to get more inbox space The current system doesn't fully do either of these things. Whereas, if there were also a per-usergroup setting of 'total messages/replies' (not just total conversations allowed), I beli
  13. Just want to bump this. Is there an add-on for it or something? I don't understand the current system at all. Surely it defeats the whole point of 'limiting' the amount of saved private conversations if each conversation can be of endless length. There could be a single conversation with 10GB of files and a million messages.
  14. I realise you can't give a set date, but is 4.5 reasonably close (i.e. within the next few months)? 🙂
  15. The current system seems very limiting, as although you can restrict the number of conversations per user group, there is nothing to stop a conversation going on for a million messages in theory. Surely it would make sense to be able to specify the total message capacity of a user's inbox, not just the conversation capacity. Thanks.
