  1. Sorry to bother you. I just updated Tutorials on version 4.6 of the community and it's throwing this error. What is that support tool it is referring to? How could I fix this problem? Thanks a lot
  2. Good morning, I was wondering if this Tutorials is compatible with 4.6. I am using it, so I wanted to make sure that it is before upgrading from 4.5 to 4.6. Thanks a lot
  3. Good morning, I was wondering if this Member's country is compatible with 4.6. I am using it, so I wanted to make sure that it is before upgrading from 4.5 to 4.6. Thanks a lot
  4. I would like to propose a feature that would prevent users from a certain user group from writing on other users statuses. Statues updates can be used to send contact information or spam other members. Some forums like mine do not allow private messages or spamming other users with messages. Still, I can see that users can post on other user's statuses. Thanks a lot
  5. Good morning, Sorry if I ask a question that is already answered in the plugin's description or the support topic. I want to hide the replies of certain forums to certain user groups, not just guests...Is that possible? Is it possible to display maybe the first post of a topic and then hide the other replies to specific user groups? Thanks a lot
  6. I second this future. I need the schedule option for posts and topics.
  7. So will the achievements have the group promotion built-int when it's launched? I mean, if a certain user has accomplished X, his user group can be upgraded/promoted to user group B? Thanks
    Great tool! I love it. It's saving me so many hours, I wouldn't be able to change the date of many articles if it were not for you. It works like a charm!
  8. Good morning, I was wondering if it could be possible to add the possibility of editing the date of "articles" as well. Thanks a lot
  9. I am interested in this application. Is there a demo somewhere? I would love to see how it looks like on a live site. Is it installed somewhere? Thanks
  10. Quick question. A member from China sees his profile is displaying an American flag. Are flags calculated only his the IP? If the member edits his profile and changes his country, will the country's flag be displayed regardless of the IP? Users might use a VPN different from his original country and the flag would not match his country and nationality Thanks
  11. That would be awesome. Thanks
  12. I've just purchased the plugin. I can't make it work as expected. I see the flags on a very reduced number of users. I logged in ACP and made sure that the IPs corresponded to their countries. See below. Aren't the IPs detected and the flag will be added based on the IPs? Most users won't show the flag, the majority of them. I've edited the user whose IP is below, added address, etc. Saved. Still, no flag. Same with most of the users. It's not about the country, because I can I am the only user from Spain that displays the flag, no other user has it. What could be wrong? Is it the IP that is detected and the flag added based on it?
  13. IPS is hosted in my own server and I have an active IPS license. I guess it should work then
  14. Sorry for this dummy question. I wanted to buy the plugin but I am confused after reading the GeoLocation statement in the plugin's description. IPS Geolocation is an active license perk so you need to have an active license to countries get picked by IP Address. What does it mean exactly? I need to have an active license of what? I have searched IPS for geolocation, location, and I can't see anything. Thanks
  15. Interesting addition. What would the forum tab navigation look like if there are too many categories? How would that be displayed if there is not enough room to fit all the category named in the tab view? Thanks
  16. Thanks a lot. I will send a PM with my credentials. Thanks so much. Have a good day
  17. I've done exactly as you show in the video. I had two sticky notes work the day that I purchased the application, but no more. I see you are also experiencing the same problem on the frontend. I cleared cache again now, tried to create a note in ACP and it didn't work either. Did exactly as you explain, it's what I've done the day that I purchased it and it worked. But it stopped working on ACP, and that's when I decided to do it in the frontend and detected that problem that you could replicate. I uninstalled Sticky Notes, installed it again and it won't work either. The only change I've done recently is setting the forum to fluid 85%. I disabled it and revert it to default. I thought that maybe the notes were being printed but not visible on the screen because of the fluid setting, but I tried it and the result is the same.
  18. I don't know whether I am doing something wrong, but I've only managed to create two sticky notes the day that I purchased the application. I've tried to create new global sticky notes from the frontend and ACP, and it will never be displayed. Not only that, when I click on CREATE in the frontend, I chose Create Global Note. I see a popup, fill it with what I need and it will not be published. I will be taken to another screen in the frontend where all fields were empty and I had to type everything again. I published the note but it doesn't appear. I tried it from ACP and no success, it's just not working. I also tried to send a personal note to another user and it won't work. I checked the permissions and all seems to be fine. I don't know what I might be doing wrong or what has changed. Anyone can help?
  19. Hello everyone, Today I learned something about IPS blocks and widgets that really surprised me. I've been using vBulletin for years (I hated it), and it was very easy to create a sidebar widget that would display the last topics/posts feed for a specific category. It even had the option to display the latest posts for the category on which the widget had been dragged on. On IPS, it's just impossible. Not only that, block locations and widgets work with templates. So, whenever I drag the default topic/post feed widget to a category, or a subcategory, or even a topic. All the cats, subcats and topics will inherit it 😞 I was shocked when I saw this today. Why? Because if you have a series of categories and you want to display the latest feed on the sidebar of each of them, it's just impossible. There is no way that you can control that. Its funny, because you are allowed to select the categories you want the topic feed to display but it won't care about it. It will use all the categories and subcategories for that specific template. The typical category structure of a forum would be something like this: ------- Parent Category 1 - Subcat 1 - Subcat 2 - Subcat 3 - Nested subcat 1 Topic Parent Category 2 Parent Category 3 ------- Well, if you want to have a sidebar widget displaying the topic feed of only the Nested Subcat 1, you won't be able to do it. Why? Because once you drag the block widget on the sidebar, topics from subcat 1 subcat 2 and subcat 1 and its parent category 1 will be filtered. You have an option to select the categories you want the topic feeds from, but it will just ignore it and display all the topics from all the categories down to the depth of the topic itself 😞 There is no way to individually display the posts/topics for each category on a sidebar. All the categories pull the data from the same source resulting in the impossibility ofindividualizing post and topic feeds. I would love to suggest that this changes in the future. Have a great day!
  20. I can wait. I am not in a hurry. I just wanted to know if that was a possibility. Thanks
  21. Quick question about the Tutorials Feed Widget. Is there a setting to change the style of the Tutorial title? At least in Bold text by default. See the attachment. At the bottom sidebar you can see IPS default post widget. The title is in bold. The tutorials is at the top, and the titles are in simple regular style. Is there a setting to change it that I am missing? Could this be something that could be added to the Tutorials app? Adding the time when the tutorial was added would also be a good idea. The post widget does it by default as well. Thanks a lot
  22. Quick question about signature option. I just purchased it and I don't understand what this is for When I start writing in the signature field, it will query the members database, prompting me to choose one as it auto completes. What's the use of this functionality? How does it work?. Thanks
    Awesome plugin. It's just perfect. It does what IPS should do by default. It's incomprehensible why IPS doesn't have this funciont built-in. Thanks a lot for creating this plugin. I love it. Good job.
