  1. To be honest it's mainly a styling reason why I don't want to upgrade to 4.5.... plus it would be hassle because I have lots of plugins and I don't know exactly what changes have been made as to how compatible things are now. But I don't really like a lot of the new changes that have been made style-wise and prefer the older 4.4 style. I think some of the new features are great (though not too keen about removing the Admin CP session from the URL) and I'd love to have them... it's just things like in topic where it states "X months later" and the way that some post actions etc are hidden to name a few things offhand.
  2. Has this been implemented yet? If so are you able to let me know where abouts in thev PHP this has been done? I've checked the latest version but the login cofde still seems the same... I'm trying to integrate it with my SSO.
  3. Does this work on regular topics as well as pages? And do you still have a 4.4 version to download?
  4. I'm not really sure where this question belongs to be honest, so this may well be the wrong forum. However, I'm interested in adding custom emoticons to my IPS board. Problem is, I don't have the graphical skills to create them myself and I'm not sure where to look for them (the x2 size thing really confuses me). Does anyone know where I can find a list or pack of emotions that are compatible with IPS anywhere? Thanks!
  5. Fantastic! What sort of timeframe are we looking at? Any way I could fix this now ready in advance of when it's released?
  6. So as part of my site integration that I've done, I've added a custom HTML form on my site which will submit login details to the login form on my IPS forum. This works fine, and the user is logged in great. Except when they get logged in, they get redirected back to the forum index, rather than the page they were previously on, on my main site. I've tried adding a base64 encoded 'ref' query string to the URL to provide a redirect URL (i.e. the URL they are on), but this isn't working. It's not so much that it's not working, but just rather by design from what I can gather. I understand why this security measure is in place, to prevent CSRF attacks etc and to prevent redirect to malicious websites. My question really, is, is there some way I can allow IPS to redirect back to my own domain from the login form & the page they were previously on, while keeping this protection in place? It isn't on a seperate subdomain or anything, both the forum and my site are running off the main domain. The only difference is that my forum is in a 'forums' subfolder, and it's redirecting back out of there that I can't currently do. Is this possible? I don't really want to have to modify the core IPS files, so an extension would be better if I have to do any development, but I'd appreciate any advice and guidance on this issue. Thanks guys
  7. You’re correct, I do use it for browsing privately. I like it personally, I never really understood what all the fuss was about. The simple fact is that I feel it resonates with me in a way that I just don’t with other browsers, I just don’t like them, particularly Chrome which I think is awful. I don’t mind Safari on my iPhone, I do kind of like that, but not on a desktop computer.
  8. As someone who uses IE 11 I can confirm that I noticed an immediate and massive degrade in my performance even just using the official IPS site as soon as they switched over to 4.5. I can virtually use nothing on this site now unless I use Firefox.. I can't even post topics, dismiss cookie banners or anything. Now I can handle it for one site if I actually need support on here, and occasionally having to switch over to Firefox, but if IPS have curbed support for IE 11 (that's what I'm assuming this means) then it means there's no way I can upgrade my own forum knowing these issues exist. If it wasn't for the sake that I needed to use this site already, I'd just avoid it altogether.
  9. Hmm thanks. Must have been that which I looked at then, but I genuinely thought it was 4.x. For those who are interested I managed to solve my problem by just using this simple class here, which does all of the work for you: Mobile Detect - lightweight PHP class for detecting mobile devices (including tablets
  10. Thanks for this. I'm not sure where I thought I'd seen that method then, but I genuinely could have sworn it was in IPS.
  11. I know there's a way to do this, because I distinctly remember seeing a method named something like IsMobile in one of the files while I was creating my site integration several months back. But I can't for the life of me remember where I saw it and I can't find it anywhere now having checked in the places you'd expect, such as Sessions, Members and Request. Does anyone know where the code for this is so I can look at it?
  12. I've tried to setup Facebook login for my IPS forum and honestly, I don't really know what to say other than imagine my shock, Facebook have made things incredibly complicated yet again for no apparent reason. All of the IPS end is configured correctly. I haven't really got a clue what I'm doing with the Facebook developer app end, what I'm really looking for and how to get this thing approved. I've followed the IPS tutorial guide and ALL I want is to have the login. No status updates, publishing posts or anything else. Literally just the login. I've tested this on my own account, and it appears to be working. But I don't know whether it works on any other account yet because I read somewhere that it will only work on your own account until approved. Does it work without approval if you just use the login??? I've tried searching for the "additional permissions" or whatever they are called, to try and submit an app review, but I don't want any of the additional permissions which are listed, and it won't let me go to app review unless I select additional permissions. I've also noticed that I need to verify my business or individual account before I get certain things. But again this is ambiguous as well and I'm still not really sure whether what it's telling me I need, is what I actually need. Will the simple login integration work without verifying either a business (which is impossible because it's just a simple community website that has no legal basis) or individual account? Any help is appreciated ....
  13. Thanks for you reply. Sadly, I actually tried it without the dot first- this wouldn't even allow me to login at all, even on the forums subdomain. It's only with the dot that I could login on the forum. Or totally blank.
  14. After some more debugging: These are two print_r() occurences of $_COOKIE. The first is from my forums subdomain, and the second is from the main domain. The cookies seem to be setting fine accross both parts of my site. I don't understand why it's not registering I'm logged in. Forums subdomain: Array ( [IPSSessionFront] => b52ab2e2beb6179bee5fc2932a01c720 [guestTime] => 1593960120 [ipsTimezone] => Europe/London [__cfduid] => ** [_ga] => ** [_gid] => ** [hasJS] => true [device_key] => 498c56281eb73e32f70f12b96b98d1e2 [member_id] => 2 [login_key] => 98a7496953476166f62f2636bb7de45c [loggedIn] => 1 [cpsession] => ** ) Main domain: Array ( [__cfduid] => ** [_ga] => GA1.3.211408320.1593959883 [_gid] => ** [_gat_gtag_UA_58106165_1] => * [hasJS] => true [device_key] => 498c56281eb73e32f70f12b96b98d1e2 [member_id] => 2 [login_key] => 98a7496953476166f62f2636bb7de45c [loggedIn] => 1 [IPSSessionFront] => b52ab2e2beb6179bee5fc2932a01c720 [guestTime] => 1593959947 [ipsTimezone] => Europe/London ) It seems to be an issue with $_SESSION. I've used print_r() on the SESSION variable on both the forums subdomain and my main domain using this code (amending the directory path for each location): <?php define('IPS_ROOT', __DIR__.'/include/subdomains/community/'); require IPS_ROOT.'init.php'; \IPS\Session\Front::i(); print_r($_SESSION); echo \IPS\Member::loggedIn()->name; The forums subdomain will display the data fine, but as soon as I go to the main domain it wipes the member name and starts displaying hashed again, as I was getting in this topic: https://invisioncommunity.com/forums/topic/457157-integrate-ips-with-my-own-website/ After I've visited the main domain page, I'm logged out of the forums entirely and have to log back out again. This is such a weird glitch ........
  15. Turns out the issue is due to cookie settings that I specified in constants.php to try and get the cookie accross the whole domain. IPS now won't assist me. If a mod is reading this topic, it's possibly a good idea to merge it with my other topic here:
