I could have sworn in IP.Board 3.3.x that individual personal messages had a post number that you could then get a link to, just as you can with posts in a regular topic. I recently upgraded to 3.4.5 and this seems to be gone. I'm sure I've copied links to individual PMs before, or am I just smoking crack? And if this was there and was taken out, why??? And finally, I'd really like to put this back in, so if someone can help me there I'd appreciate it.
I just upgraded my forum from 3.3.4 to 3.4.5 a few days ago (yeah, yeah, finally, I know). Well, I'm seeing an odd problem with the Mobile skin in that it's displaying "Array" as the username for each row. This also happens with the Slate mobile skin, which I just purchased and installed today:
I did find some references to this issue in earlier versions of the software, supposedly fixed in earlier versions of 3.4.x:
This is great stuff--I have a ton of European users and would love to have translations for a few different languages (such as German, Polish, French, etc.) I'm sure I can get help from my users translating forum-specific text. :)
This looks fantastic so far, thanks for the preview!
As the first paragraph states, the post editor is damned important since that's how users interact with your forum to post and edit content. Glad to see that time is being spent improving this crucial piece of the forum (and other areas of the IPS Suite). I look forward to learning more as you continue to develop IPS 4.0!
I looked at one of the spammers I banned, and it is marked as above:
Will this also prevent them from posting status updates? The only change I've made is in the "Action to take when a member is flagged for spamming" setting above. If this does the trick, then I'm golden. :) I'll test this shortly.
Marking them as a "SPAMMER" on the ACP Validation page should be sufficient to make sure a spammer can't login, post, update their status, and so forth. If this is not happening by default with the software, it is a failure of the software and should be fixed. Ideally I should be able to choose what group a user goes into when I mark them as "SPAMMER". The forum seems to be putting them into the Members group, which is a big WTF. I did look through the ACP to see if there was a setting for this, but didn't see one at first glance.
