  1. Have you tried clearing the cache for the download itself via Cloudflare''s clear file from cache mechanism?
  2. FYI, if you haven't run across it, there's also this: I don't use it, and the description sounds like it uses Wordpress as the main authentication mechanism. We do use OAuth for backend systems integrated with IPS similarly to how is described in what you linked. You receive a prompt asking you to authorize the login and approve the scopes, and it's not quite streamlined, but it works. We don't use it in a public facing capacity, yet for backend things it works just fine.
  3. I think, but am not sure, that you need a plugin. Fortunately, there's one here: From the description, it works so long as you use one domain (with subdomains). It also prevents duplicate logins. I've never used it, but it seems rather popular. Apologies though... I see that it is only compatible up until 4.4. @stoo2000 may be able to assist.
  4. Though, the text seems to suggest it's for external links. Not at a place to test this. Are you sure it doesn't work that way? "to other websites"
  5. Absolutely agree. /summon @Jordan Invision
  6. @Morrigan screenshot shows a much clearer badge view than I see. Have these been reviewed on a Windows machine? They are blurry as all get out for me.
  7. No idea. The logs should help reveal what's going on.
  8. I won't be satisfied until I earn another red brick.
  9. I would not use a payments processor that does not allow for standard testing practices. Can you change your "live" domain with the processor, such that you set your domain to test.example.com and then once your testing is complete put it back?
  10. Are you using gd or imagemagick? You should enable logging for PHP and see what errors you get from whichever extension you're using.
  11. Yes, find reputable and recognized places for knowledge, just as you'd search for any other product or service online. 🙂 Depending on your learning style, seek out paid or free training/courses from reputable providers (consider looking into MOOCs) or go straight to the source for documentation: PHP: https://www.php.net/docs.php MySQL: https://dev.mysql.com/doc/ Javascript: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/JavaScript HTML/CSS: https://www.w3.org/standards/webdesign/htmlcss
  12. I would urge caution at using w3schools. I have found that they frequently show bad practice behaviors in their examples.
  13. Invision (broadly) uses five languages: Front End - things that run in the context of a user's browser: JavaScript (often in the form of reusable libraries) CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) HTML (HyperText Markup Language) - all web sites use this, and Backend - things that run on a server: PHP -- what actually runs on the server In addition, SQL is used through extraction layers in PHP via MySQL (or its swap in, MariaDB). You will also find some use of JSON and XML. And you will find interactions with other technologies via PHP such as elasticsearch and Redis. Your ability to establish working proficiency in any of these and then to develop an understanding of the existing codebase is an exercise we can only speculate about. I'd recommend looking for open, free courses that touch on the basics of PHP and front-end web development and see for yourself your ability to pick things up. Many of us have no formal education on these things and have largely taught ourselves. Many of us have formal education in one or more of these areas. If you have the desire and drive, you're most of the way there.
  14. ... Analytics solutions aren't intrusion detection systems. If you need something that's looking for suspicious behavior, that solution should be ingesting your web server's logs or, more ideally, sit in front of your web server via something like a firewall and use things like inspection. Matomo and Google Analytics are simply tools that help you understand your audience. You can only control the software running on your services and cannot force any user or robot to run software client side.
  15. Looks like the same behavior happens here. You should encourage whoever administers that site to consider a hyphen instead of an underscore. In other words, dev-tc instead of dev_tc.
  16. The hostname of the link you posted contains an underscore. Underscores are not supposed to be used in hostnames and violate the RFCs for valid hostnames. My guess would be that CKEditor is doing something with this link. Posting it here as a test. Test link
  17. Practically every allocated resource and configuration on your server(s), your community's usage of various features, resources allocated/consumed by the various services and tools powering your community, your community's guest to member ratio, and the design and architecture of your server(s) setup.
  18. These are decisions that require a technical understanding and cannot be realistically answered within the scope of a post here. Depending on a multitude of factors, the best choice may vary and IPS gives flexibility in that regard. If you don't understand something, don't use it until you do. If you do not have the personal time or skillset to seek out and obtain an understanding of these things, then consider hiring someone who does: https://invisioncommunity.com/third-party/providers/
