  1. AtariAge added a post in a topic: Back to top option   

    LOL, this topic.
    First time I visit the Invision community forum in several weeks, see these forums have been switched over to 4.0, and this is the first topic I see.
  2. AtariAge added a post in a topic: No way to link to individual PMs?   

     
    Would be nice--one of my users pointed it out to me this morning.  I know it's something I've used at various times in the past, but obviously not since updating my forum.  :)

    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. 
     
    Thanks,

    Being able to use the ACP on my phone is a huge win.  Look forward to more revelations down the road!
  5. AtariAge added a post in a topic: Invision Power Software Can't Properly Link to Wikipedia and other sites?   

    This issue amuses me, as someone just posted a message on my forum stating apostrophes in URLs don't work when making links.  And they cited a link to Wikipedia as an example..  Here's the post:

    Would be nice to see this fixed, even if apostrophes aren't technically valid characters in URLs.

    Will do, thanks.

    The stock Mobile skin does the same thing, and I don't have very many hooks installed. I don't have any Group Formatting hooks. I imagine if it was a hook, it would be affecting all the skins.

  8. AtariAge added a post in a topic: "View New Content" shows "Array" as username   

    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:

    I have done absolutely zero customizations to either the default Mobile skin or the Slate skin.  I don't see this issue on any of the seven desktop skins I have installed on my forum. 
     
    What can I do to resolve this? 
     
    Thanks,

  9. AtariAge added a post in a topic: Mobile Skin Last Poster is Array?   

    I'm seeing this in 3.4.5 and came here looking for an answer.  Did you ever solve this issue?  I see this with both the default mobile skin, as well as the Slate mobile skin I purchased.

  10. AtariAge added a comment on a blog entry: IPS 4.0: Internationalization and Localization   

    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.  :)
  11. AtariAge added a comment on a blog entry: IPS 4.0: Editor - Part 1: Content   

    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!
  12. AtariAge added a post in a topic: Spammers posting Status Updates after being marked as Spammer   

    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.
     
    Thanks,

    This is what I have in my conf_global.php as far as group IDs: 

    $INFO['admin_group']                    =       '4'; $INFO['guest_group']                    =       '2'; $INFO['member_group']                   =       '3'; $INFO['auth_group']                     =       '1';  ..Al
  14. AtariAge added a post in a topic: Spammers posting Status Updates after being marked as Spammer   

    So, I found this setting:
     

     
    I changed it to, "Unapprove posts, empty profile and ban account".  I then went and banned a whole slew of accounts marked as "Spammers".  These accounts STILL show up in the "Members" group, though. 
     
    I'm running 3.3.4.  Is this something that's changed in 3.4.x?

  15. AtariAge added a post in a topic: Spammers posting Status Updates after being marked as Spammer   

    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.
