    Tom Christian got a reaction from NiDE in How to Change Background Color of the Header?   
    ​Try #ipsLayout_header > header instead.
    Avoid targeting just 'header' specifically as that can be used for other types of headers within a site.

    - User authentication (login/register/reset password)
    - List categories
    - List forums
    - PM's (CRUD)
    On the subject, better marketplace integration e.g. get account credit. I wrote a bot that scrapes this for my own use but would be nicer to have an endpoint.

    You could apply some css that targets the tabs and adds an image icon as a pseudo element. What's your board url? I'll give you an example

    Tom Christian got a reaction from AlexJ in IPS4 Pages - My experience building a custom homepage   
    I spent a couple of hours today building a completely custom homepage with Pages. The homepage made use of a page template, custom wrapper template, two PHP blocks, custom CSS & JS files. As I went along I recorded a few things:
    Suggestions / Features
    1. From a developer stand point, I was immediately stuck in regards to documentation. There's nothing remotely helpful that tells me how to use pages as an advanced user. I suggest a setup guide on creating a custom homepage that integrates with a PHP block.
    2. When writing custom blocks, the UX is painful. As a first time user of Pages, there was a lot of trial & error when writing my blocks. Being redirected back to the block index every time I clicked save became tiring very quickly. Ideally, I'd like to write these outside of the ACP like a regular IPS4 plugin. Is this possible?
    3. PHP Blocks - At first, I was confused whether this was IPS template syntax or raw PHP. If there were advanced docs, this could be answered pretty easily.
    4. When adding templates, (HTML/CSS/JS), the template should be open and ready to edit after the page refreshes. Adding a template, and then having to search through all the folders to edit it is pretty tedious.
    5. The CSS/JS include process needs improvement. My JS files needed to be in a certain order yet I was restricted to the incorrect order in which the templates were dumped inside the multi-select menu. In the end, I had to merge the two JS files together to solve that.
    6. Global import/export feature. This app is awesome and the potential is huge but as a developer, I have zero interest in building anything for the community due to how messy the setup process is both from a developer & end-user stand point. I could see myself building an awesome homepage package that includes all kinds features. From what I can see, to achieve this at the moment, the user would have to manually create all of this inside their ACP. Manually create the custom blocks, manually add the CSS & JS templates, manually do everything. This complexity needs to be addressed ASAP.
    Bugs
    1. Deleting templates works, but isn't reflected live on the page. It's only gone after a page refresh.
    2. Block page badges (custom,plugin etc) have weird alignment.
    3. Adding a new page, write some content, switch tab to write the title & page description, go back to the content tab and all the content is gone.
    4. "Save and reload" button doesn't work when first adding a page. It just redirects to the index after setting up permissions.

    Tom Christian reacted to NoGi in No Offense but IPS custom Mod community is lacking!   
    I'm just giving my 2c worth in this discussion why perhaps there aren't as many developers as with other platforms. I'm sure that along with the dedicated developers that are doing it as a source of income that there are also a bunch like me where that's not the case. To put simply, I am not going to pay $175 just to get core+forum simply to write apps in my spare time. It doesn't encourage me to develop free or low cost apps either.

    Type IPS Documentation on Google :
    You can see "4.0 Developer Documentation", click it and worth it :
    !!!!
    To understand plugin architecture, I had to read community forum because IPS documentation is related to IPS 3.x architecture
    This is not serious...

    I've spent a lot more time than I wanted researching the 500 error and it turns out it's an issue with IPS4. The breadcrumb template hooks are causing the 500 error. I've submitted a bug report and ticket and will update you all ASAP.
