  1. ehren. added a comment: 4.0.1 > 4.0.2: "Inherited" template files are now "modified"   

    Further note, the "inherited" template files are changed to "modified" whenever Designers Mode is enabled and then disabled - so this bug isn't only caused by the upgrade. No files are edited while DM is enabled, but if the "sync changes" box is ticked, it incorrectly changes inherited files to modified for child themes.

    ​If I didn't have thousands of my own customers to cater for, I'd be happy to chillax - however I always aim to provide fast support and upgrades for my paying customers, and this is one of the main hurdles preventing me from doing that. This feature is needed sooner rather than later, hence the reason for this feedback topic.
  3. ehren. added a comment: [RC3] Custom theme settings tab language bit not displaying   

    I can confirm I've had this same bug ever since RC's and it's never worked correctly for me. Theme settings work fine, but theme tabs don't.

  4. ehren. added a comment: 4.0.1 > 4.0.2: "Inherited" template files are now "modified"   

    To further add to this bug:
    My parent theme had a custom HTML template file, which was inherited by the child theme. Due to the bug above, the inherited template file in the child theme was incorrectly referred to as "Modified". So I opened it, pressed the Revert button, and the template file was deleted from both the child theme AND the parent theme (causing my frontend to break completely).
    Luckily I had a backup of the template file, but Revert buttons should not delete custom template files from both child and parent themes. It should simply revert the child template file so it matches the parent.

    4.0.1 > 4.0.2: "Inherited" template files are now "modified"
    After the 4.0.1 > 4.0.2 upgrade, all "inherited" template files in child themes have become "modified".
    1. On 4.0.1, I had:
    - A parent theme which contained modified template files, ie. They all have the maroon (M) icon.
    -- A child theme, which inherited the above changes. Therefore the template files had the green (i) icon. The same applied for css files.
    So far, so good.
    2. I upgraded my board from 4.0.1 to 4.0.2. This affected my child theme. All of it's files which were previously inherited (green "i" icon), are now "modified" files and have a maroon "m" icon. This means that if I apply a change to my parent theme, the child theme doesn't inherit that same code change. If I revert the modified child files, they return to inherited, and they correctly inherit the parent code.
    For reference, this is the area I'm talking about (the screenshot shows my child theme). In 4.0.1, the logo and navBar template files were both green (inherited), which was correct. After the upgrade, both turned maroon (modified). I reverted the logo template file, and it correctly turned back to inherited.

    Additionally, all modified css files in both the parent and child themes are now "unique to this set" (yellow 'c' icon) instead of being "modified" (for the parent theme), or "inherited" (for the child theme). Since they are "unique", they also now incorrectly have a Delete button instead of a Revert button.

    ​Please link me if 'difference reports' already exist. I'm aware of the Documentation, Bug Tracker, Release Notes and Feature Plan - but I'm not aware of any areas with difference reports for themes.

    4.0.2 was released 2 days ago and there are still no announcements on theme updates. I feel like this is something that needs to be addressed asap. We're not in beta anymore - these are "fully supported releases" according to the release notes, yet there hasn't been any documentation or replies from staff regarding theme updates. Version 4.0.3 is currently in development and this is something which needs to be included with the next release notes, it's not something that can be added down the track.
    This is not only vital for myself, but for all serious designers. We can't release themes for 4.x if they already contain outdated code.. @Tom Christian, @Pete T, @IBTheme, @steve00, @Sinistra

    [4.0.1] Child theme: custom files have Delete instead of Revert
    Child themes with custom css/html templates have a "Delete" button instead of "Revert"
    I have a parent theme, which has a custom css file called ipsfocus_fixes.css as well as the standard custom.css file. I created a child theme, so it has naturally inherited these same two files. So far, so good.
    I'm unsure how to reproduce this bug since I've only just noticed it, but instead of having a Revert button for these files (in the child theme), there is a delete button. I don't want to press it just incase it ruins the structure of my theme. I'm not sure if it'll revert my files so they match the parent theme (ie. the correct outcome), or if it'll delete them entirely (the incorrect outcome).

    IPS dev's recently enabled Designers Mode to try and fix another bug I've been having.. I noticed this bug this morning after DM was disabled, so it may be a side effect of that since the Revert button was available yesterday at some point.
    In fact, I've just checked the parent theme and it also has a Delete button for the custom.css file, (which should technically be a Revert button so it's reverted back to the default "empty" comment code), like the default IPS theme.
    I have an open ticket in the client area already which has my development board details if it needs to be checked.

    Are you planning on releasing reports which outline what code has been changed in themes when new versions are released? It's understandable that they weren't released for beta's and RC's, however they're pretty vital now that we've reached final, and there has never been a proper answer despite being asked a few times.
    There were code changes between 4.0.0 and 4.0.1 which weren't announced and had to be found manually.. I'm sure a "difference report" like those available in 3.x would be greatly appreciated by many theme designers like myself..

    This is still happening in 4.0.1.

    Ignore the above comment, the error is still happening this morning.

    [4.0.0] Theme settings: Text Area truncating text
    Text Area's in theme settings truncate text after the setting is saved.
    Eg. This text area controls a guest message in a theme of mine. I filled it with a small paragraph, like so:

    I save the setting, and the paragraph works correctly on the front-end. However, if I return to the settings page, some of the text is removed:

    If I resave, the text is obviously also removed from the front-end.

    Theme settings not working on frontend after DM disable.
    This is fairly tricky to describe but I'll do my best.
    I'm creating a theme, and I've used theme settings to create a guest message which can be configured.
    The "guest message" text is customized using a Text Area (ipsf_guestText) in the theme settings.
    The box also uses settings to assign a class (ipsf_guestStyle). One class is a yellow box, the other is a darker design. The classes are selected using a "Select box" in the theme settings.
    A simplified version of the HTML is:
    <div class='ipsfocus_{theme="ipsf_guestStyle"}'> <div class='header'>Welcome to IPSFocus</div> <div class='ipsfocus_guestText'>{theme="ipsf_guestText"}</div> </div>
    With DM enabled, it works as intended. The guess message appears, and the box has the "yellow" class assigned to it:

    The source code looks something like this:
    <div class="ipsfocus_guestAlert"> <div class='header'>Welcome to IPSFocus</div> <div class="ipsfocus_guestText">Register now to gain access to all of our features. Once registered and logged in, you will be able to create topics, post replies to existing threads, give reputation to your fellow members, get your own private messenger, post status updates, manage you</div> </div> 
    Up until now, everything is working correctly - however, if I disable Designers Mode and return to the front end, the setting values are removed and the box looks like this:

    The source code becomes:
    <div class="ipsfocus_"> <div class='header'>Welcome to IPSFocus</div> <div class="ipsfocus_guestText"></div> </div>
    To fix this, I need to load up any template file and simply press the Save button. No code changes are necessary, but once that is done, the box loads correctly like in the first screenshot.

    Not sure if you've fixed this, but the error is no longer happening.
