  1. Vince G. added a comment on a file: (IM) Custom Forum Blocks   

    No trial version available. Sorry.
     
    Mod updated to 2.0.1
  2. Vince G. added a comment on a file: (IM) Custom Forum Blocks   

     
    Yeah, Check this one out:  http://community.invisionpower.com/files/file/3622-v88-custom-forum-blocks/
     
    That's the old version for IPB 3.0, It looks the same with this new version for IPB 3.3, 3.4

    That's right. I haven't even tested this in the forums but i see that they are actually using the mb_* functions

    if( $this->settings['etfilter_shout'] ) { if( function_exists('mb_convert_case') ) { if( in_array( strtolower( $this->settings['gb_char_set'] ), array_map( 'strtolower', mb_list_encodings() ) ) ) { $this->_topicTitle = mb_convert_case( $this->_topicTitle, MB_CASE_TITLE, $this->settings['gb_char_set'] ); } else { $this->_topicTitle = ucwords( strtolower($this->_topicTitle) ); } } else { $this->_topicTitle = ucwords( strtolower($this->_topicTitle) ); } }

    So the reported bug is not actually a bug.
  4. Vince G. added a comment: Bug in the "Stop shouting" setting   

    Ignore.

    Although that can be a nice feature for some boards, That's not going to fix the original bug reported. ucwords does not work well with languages such as Russian, Turkish, Hebrew etc.. Consider the following:

    <?php header('Content-Type: text/html; charset=UTF-8'); $word = "THIS is A TestinG SENTENCE"; echo ucwords($word); echo "nn<br /><br />"; $word = "Ючю эю пожжэ компльыктётюр. Граэки дэфянятйоныс шэа ед"; echo ucwords($word); echo "nn<br /><br />"; $word = "Ючю эю пожжэ компльыктётюр. Граэки дэфянятйоныс шэа ед"; echo mb_convert_case($word, MB_CASE_TITLE, "UTF-8");

    Which will output:

    THIS Is A TestinG SENTENCE Ючю эю пожжэ компльыктётюр. Граэки дэфянятйоныс шэа ед Ючю Эю Пожжэ Компльыктётюр. Граэки Дэфянятйоныс Шэа Ед


    Notice the difference in the 2nd and 3rd lines (last 3 words first letter).

    Would have been much clearer if the actual bug was written.
  11. Vince G. added a comment: RTL: Not Oredred Correctly   

    I think it's a good time to address this issue. We can either use the default ipb_rtl.css file to style the gallery as well, Or use another ipg_rtl.css file to style the gallery.
  12. Vince G. added a comment: Some Problems : Search , NAV , Info Box , Status   

    Could you please rewrite the bugs you have found in plain text rather then an image? Will make it a lost simpler to fix them.
  13. Vince G. added a record in IP.Board   

    RTL - Invalid background image url
    I Noticed in the ipb_rtl.css file that there is a background image attribute looking like this:
    [code]
    #search .choice {
    background:url("{style_images_url}/search_expand.png") no-repeat scroll left center transparent;
    border-left:0 none;
    border-right:1px solid #AFAFAF;
    padding:0 7px 0 9px;
    }[/code]

    The {style_images_url} is not replaced with an actual url so the the search bar arrow key is not displayed.

  14. Vince G. added a comment: Attachment alignment   

    Those are the changes needed done to get this working properly.

    In the rtl.css file we need to add the following:

    [code]#attachments li.complete, #attachments li.in_progress, #attachments li.error {
    background-position:right 12px;
    }[/code]

    Then Find:

    [code]#attachments li .progress_bar {
    left:0;
    right:auto;
    }[/code]

    Replace with:

    [code]#attachments li .progress_bar {
    left:0;
    right:auto;
    margin-right:0px;
    margin-left:15px;
    }[/code]

    Then Find:

    [code]#attach_wrap li {
    float:left;
    margin:5px 6px;
    }[/code]

    Replace with:

    [code]#attach_wrap li {
    float:right;
    margin:5px 6px;
    }[/code]
  15. Vince G. added a comment: rtl status update hook   

    Those are the changes needed done to get this working properly.

    In the rtl.css file we need to add the following:
    [code]
    #statusHook .status_main_content {
    margin-right:0;
    }

    #statusHook .status_main_content p {
    margin-right:28px;
    margin-left:0px;
    }[/code]

    That should fix it.
