  1. Edward Shephard added a post in a topic: [Calendar] - Custom Fields   

    I repeatedly asked for calendar custom fields prior to and throughout the beta phase, but despite general support the feedback from IPS was that they didn't foresee the need. Shame really as they would be good for all sorts of uses.

    RC6 is now available
  3. Edward Shephard added a post in a topic: The final date of implementation of the IP 4.0   

    ​I think quicker than that.  One or two more RC's at most.  I suspect that most of the website/demo stuff is ready to go; blitz a few more bugs this week and hey presto!

    That looks great.  I have jt started to play with pages yet, how easy is it to make the collapsing columns?
  5. Edward Shephard added a post in a topic: Has anybody upgraded a large site?   

    I once had a slow query issue caused by the indexes of  ibf_reputation_index becoming disabled which interestingly did not show  up in the ACP index checker.  Different version I know but  as @Kirito  suggests   a check of the indexes might be worthwhile.
  6. Edward Shephard added a post in a topic: Disappointed In IPS 4   

    I really like the fact that search in 4 returns all results irrespective of which part of the site you are viewing.  Most of my users at least are looking for any and all info on a topic and to expect them to flit between pages and articles and database records is unreasonable.

    I think you mean:  You are probably lost and have no idea how to get back to the top.

    [quote name="Edward Shephard" timestamp="1402818256"] Turns out the script triggered my host's DDOS system!  Script worked fine - I just got blacklisted!!

    Ticket in for me as well.  Script hung and now neither the script nor the site are working :(

    Mine's all in Swedish too - how did that happen?
  12. Edward Shephard added a comment on a blog entry: 4.0 - Cover photos   

    Looks great.
     
    Can you say a bit more about how this works responsively.  One of the much requested suite features is the ability to automatically re-size images on upload.  Can this system do this and will it automatically resize an image (or serve a different sized cached image) depending on the type of device making the request?

    LOL. AKA  it turned out better than I had originally anticipated and I'm pretty proud of it!
     
    Seriously, good job.
  14. Edward Shephard added a comment on a blog entry: 4.0 - Global Sidebar   

    Looks great.
     
    One question: I'm a little surprised that the sidebar is on the left hand side of the page as this is usually the spot for primary content rather than sidebar stuff. Can the sidebar easily be moved to the right hand side of the page? (I'm sure that you can move it with a template edit, but a nice easy setting would be good please.)
     
    and one thought: An obvious extension of this is to allow registered users to setup their own sidebar in a similar manner to customising their profile area.  Is this something that you're looking at or is it likely to be too resource intensive?

    Okay thanks for coming back to me - I'll look forward to finding out about this. :)
