  1. Nils added a post in a topic: Reporting Status Updates   

    Imagine the user has been reported before. Now if you report him again, the original report will be bumped with the new report message. But if you don't read very closely, you might not actually notice the new message, so you will get confused about why this old report is showing up again.
     
    Also, when people comment on this report it becomes very hard to see which comments are talking about the new report and which ones are talking about the old one. Depending on the amount of discussion before one might even have to browse through several pages of comments to find it.
     
    And now imagine the chaos if this happens multiple times for a single user.
     
    I am speaking from experience here...
  2. Nils added a post in a topic: Reporting Status Updates   

    Would it be possible to add a separate reporting system for status updates (like for posts, blogs and so on)? At the moment the only way to report these is by reporting the user, which gets very confusing over time, since when there are multiple status update reports for a user they all end up getting combined into one giant report thread.
  3. Nils added a post in a topic: Detect Mobile Skin in Hook?   

    Is there any way I can detect whether the mobile skin or the normal skin is active from within a hook? I want to display different content based on which skin is active. If there is no function for this, is there maybe at least one where I can get the current skin ID?
  4. Nils added a post in a topic: Highlight recent post times with HTML   

    For a long time I have been highlighting the posting time of recent posts by adding HTML in the relative time format, putting <b> Tags around the text like this {--} -> <b>{--}</b>. This has worked fine so far, but as of version 3.4.5 the HTML gets escaped and I end up with <b>Today</b> being displayed instead of a bold Today . How can I fix this?

    Is the $this->request array in ipsCommand guaranteed to be sanitized? In particular, is HTML guaranteed to have been escaped already?
  6. Nils added a post in a topic: PLEASE provide a change log   

    I am not talking about diff reports or anything like that. Having the list of fixed bugs but with some priorities assigned would already be a lot more helpful. Ideally new features would also get tracked through the bug tracker and would show up in that list as well.

    For the templates, yes, but not for the software itself.
  8. Nils added a post in a topic: PLEASE provide a change log   

    I would just like to bring this topic back, as I still think a change log would be essential. An unsorted 7-page list of bug reports just doesn't cut it. It doesn't tell me what is important and what is just a minor fix, it doesn't tell me what the breaking changes are, it doesn't tell me where the known issues lie and it doesn't tell me what areas have been changed at all.
     
    So instead I have to either install the update and hope for the best or manually diff the files to see what has been changed, both of which I would not call good solutions.
     
    I really don't understand why this is such a problem.
  9. Nils added a post in a topic: Editor Feedback   

    So what is the verdict on this now? Will 3.4.2 include an improved non-RTE editor? If not, will a later version? And what about making the editor pluggable in general?
  10. Nils added a post in a topic: This website is offline   

    I don't think Cloudflare is the problem here. The reason that IPS activated Cloudflare in the first place was probably that they were being targeted by DDoS attacks that they could not cope with on their own. So the site would probably be down a lot more without it...
  11. Nils added a post in a topic: Filter "Recent Blog Entries" Hook   

    Is there a list of all these settings somewhere? I never knew they existed, so maybe there are some more things I would like to use...
  12. Nils added a post in a topic: Filter "Recent Blog Entries" Hook   

    Great, thank you! Maybe this should be a setting in the ACP to make it a bit easier to find?
  13. Nils added a post in a topic: Filter "Recent Blog Entries" Hook   

    Is there any way I can filter the list of blogs that are displayed with the "Recent Blog Entries" hook? Either by excluding certain blogs, or by only displaying certain blogs?
