  1. mikesound added a post in a topic: windows support ?   

    this is one of the posts that led me to post
     
  2. mikesound added a post in a topic: windows support ?   

    a couple of posts have said that invision no longer offer support for windows installations of the software
    can you please let me know if this is correct
    if so then I obviously do need to consider future plans
    also if so can you let me know when and where this was announced ?
     
     
    thanks
     
  3. mikesound added a bug in Bug Tracker   

    [4.0.0] Adverts only show after first post.if more than one post
    if a single post then it seems 'after first post' adverts will not show after the post
     
    a possible fix
    may be to move
    {{if $postCount == 1 AND $advertisement = \IPS\core\Advertisement::loadByLocation( 'ad_topic_view' )}} {$advertisement|raw} {{endif}}to after the post container template call
     
    appears to fix this

  4. mikesound added a post in a topic: How to speed up the Background Processes?   

    1st april upgraded
    the rebuild background processes has just ended a hour or so ago
     
    that's 7 days....
     
  5. mikesound added a bug in Bug Tracker   

    Themes Dir not removed on IIS
    the option 'remove disk files' doesn't work on a Windows  IIS server when switching off designer mode  - the dirs are still left
     
    adding the below appears to fix this - as in after addiing php now removes all the theme dirs
     
    theme.php at approx line 1057
     
    $handle = opendir($dir); closedir ( $handle ); rmdir( $dir ); 
    more details here

  6. mikesound added a post in a topic: How to speed up the Background Processes?   

    on a test site its taking a long time to re-build content via the background process
    talking a couple of million posts 
    large numbers of gallery images, calendar events etc
     
    do have cron running as well as hitting the manual option 
     
    How can I  speed these 'background process' up as currently can't see how I can upgrade the 'live' site if its going to take days to rebuild?
     
  7. mikesound added a post in a topic: filter by forum should be 'not in' rather than 'in' ?   

    should be easy to do in theory ?
    ​if theres no chance, hopefully there will be a 'easy' way of resetting all members choice in v4 ?
  8. mikesound added a post in a topic: filter by forum should be 'not in' rather than 'in' ?   

    when choosing which forums to use as a filter for the vnc filter it may be better if the choice was to show what forums you do not want results for rather than the current option
     
    that way any 'new' forums started after the member made their choice will  no longer be filtered automatically
    plus members then have to actually make a deliberate choice on which forums they want not to see, instead of the current way which encourages the majority of forums to be filtered by default
     
     
     
     
     
  9. mikesound added a comment on a blog entry: 4.0 - Minor calendar enhancements   

    two requests...
     
    in the listings - can  a thumbnail of the event image be used rather than the profile image  if present?
     
    also if not done already
     
    can you add a noindex meta to the day listingss if no events -as  google currently picks up every empty day (including all in  last century)  - which adds up to lot of 'thin' content

    sorry but dont agree with this pm malwarky
     
    can understand people being busy but how long for ?
     
    got a renewal
    but my thinking is whats the point ?
     
    do i really have to pm sellers to find out plans for  future
    or indeed plans for bringing back features that have been removed - ipcontent etc
  11. mikesound added a post in a topic: ipcontent - new filter method ?   


    Thanks for the reply
    Frustration did get the better off me with my posts as had spent a fair amount of time trying to use this feature which coupled with the lack of any at hand info or staff reply did make me feel less than impressed

    I still feel it was a big ask, expecting members to be aware of a blog entry from July (over 3 months ago) that seemed to be more about the new tracker setup
    I can understand how those involved in the development/testing etc may think all would be aware, but certainly in my case a link to the blog or a brief description in the announcement would have been helpful.

    Anyway after using it do have to say it is a great and very useful addition to ipcontent
    thanks

    you knew what i meant and so would the other person having the same problem

    where was all this info then ?

    why wasn't it linked?

    how is anyone supposed to get to this almost hidden feature off their own back

    as said not impressed
  13. mikesound added a post in a topic: ipcontent - new filter method ?   


    had the same problems
    there's a ajax option that shows up depending on type of field selected

    as in when adding a new field it appears after selecting
    drop-down, multi-select, and check-boxes only

    have to say not impressed by the lack of any info with this release and feature
  14. mikesound added a post in a topic: ipcontent - new filter method ?   



    any words anywhere about how best to put in place and use the "filter by fields"
    as having no joy with using the url structure used in tracker ?
  15. mikesound added a post in a topic: Suggestion: View ALL New Content   



    super news shows the latest forum posts, gallery additions etc
    my take is that all you need to do to reinforce a "new content view" rather than an "activity" one is just change the wording used on the links display and you will have something very similar to the current vnc
