    SoundCloud and Instagram also automatically embed now - no separate tag needed. I suspect embedding Vine would be a pretty easy thing to set up too.

    ​YouTube videos are now automatically embedded - just paste a link to the video and it'll appear in the post
  3. Rikki added a post in a topic: [Missing] Common Sense   

    Everyone is entitled to offer their feedback; we'll either defend our reasoning or rethink it. As long as people post with some respect and a level head, it's fine.
  4. Rikki added a post in a topic: [Missing] Post Numbering   

    One option is showing the  actual  post number - for example, Charles' post above is post ID #2528363. That number never changes whether you can see that particular post or not. The problem with that is they aren't incremental within a particular topic, so you would have to hunt for it.
  5. Rikki added a post in a topic: [Missing] Post Numbering   

    The reason we decided to remove this is because the post numbers aren't the same for everyone - if you see unapproved posts as a moderator, or you are a member who has a post awaiting moderation (in IPS4 you can see you own unapproved posts), the numbers won't be the same as someone who doesn't. Or, if a post is deleted, then all posts after it end up with a different number. I'm not sure there's a easy way around that unfortunately.
    A better way of referencing posts is to click the little share icon at the top-right of a post and share the permalink to it instead; that way, those who can access it jump right to the post, but nothing happens for those that can't.

  10. Rikki added a comment: [RC3] RTL Editor not shown right.   

    As I said, if you have an RTL language set  and  it's one that CKEditor supports in RTL mode, it shows correctly. Unfortunately it won't go to RTL just because you set your IPS4 language to 'Right to Left'. It has to be one CKEditor supports itself.
  11. Rikki added a post in a topic: Where is the members list ?   

    I think what you're really after is a way for member content to be better recognized, rather than a 'member list'. A member list to most of us is simply an alphabetical (or other sorting) list of everyone in the community, and that's what we're saying isn't very useful. However, you're asking for ways for member contributions to be recognized - show those with the best content (voted on my other members), those with most followers, and so on. I don't think those are solved with a member list, but you'll be pleased to know we already have ideas on how to address those kinds of needs.
    One of my favorite buzzwords is 'gamification' (everyone laughs at me when I use it) - i.e. encouraging people to participate by rewarding them for doing so. We've made some simple steps towards this in 4.0 (such as showing the reputation count next to all of their posts and content), but there's a lot more we can do in future, and we already have some internal discussions about possible approaches.
    So I think we've solved the argument here - most are against a 'member list', but you're asking for better ways to recognize member contributions, which we do agree with

  13. Rikki added a comment: 1password Browser can't access to the IPS Forums   

    Incidentally, 1password's browser is working for me. If it's a problem logging in, as Brandon said it could be that your password was out of sync due to a recent change here.
  14. Rikki added a comment: [RC2] ACP Emoticons: Drag&Drop to another Folder doesn't work   

    This wasn't properly supported, however I spoke to Mark and we decided we should change it to support it (reordering essentially wasn't working properly anyway if you had more than one set, so this is a better way of fixing the issue). I've updated the JS to return emoticons as a JSON object, where the keys are emoticon set IDs, and each set ID contains an array of ordered emoticon IDs. If you could tweak the loop in /applications/core/modules/admin/editor/emoticons.php to support that changed format please
     
  15. Rikki added a post in a topic: Where is the members list ?   

    No-one sat there clicking through hundreds (actually, tens of thousands in our case) of pages of members to find people  in 3.4. The actual 'list' part of the member list was useless on any sizable community. Instead, what people valued was the search capabilities. It makes much more sense to put that in the search engine so that members can be found alongside everything else on the site.
    @superj707  You've been mentioning that a grid looks better, which is fine, but it doesn't address the actual  purpose  of having a member list. Other than what it looks like, how would you imagine using a member list that shows thousands upon thousands of profile photos? What would your goal be when you visit that page? What would you expect to do on that page that our member search system in 4.0 doesn't support? This goes deeper than simply what a page looks like - it can look like anything with the theme system of course (you can make the 4.0 search system look like a grid, if you wish). It's about working out the purpose of a page, and the sole useful purpose of the old member list is now part of the search system.
    I can understand that if you had a close-knit community of a few dozen members, such as on a company intranet, a directory might be useful. But that isn't a common use unfortunately, so it is probably better suited as an addon. Then again, we have the new 'staff directory' functionality which lets you curate a list of important members  and  customize what information is shown, so I'm not even sure that's a popular use case any more.
