  1. TSP added a bug in IPS4 Bug Tracker   

    Plugin install: Column 'plugin_version_long' cannot be null
    I tried to install the plugin from the documentation. I downloaded "Global Message.xml":  http://community.invisionpower.com/4docs/advanced-usage/development/plugins-an-example-r72/
    When I try to upload it in the plugin section in the ACP , I get the following error: 
    Seems something needs to be fixed on export or taken into account on import. If you only fix this on export, then please update the documentation with a fixed xml-file.

  2. TSP added a post in a topic: Changing the licence subfolder for test site   

    I agree very much, @kettner . IPS should have better support that kind of setup, it's something we're able to do for all our other sites where I work, but not the communities, due to the way hooks are installed, skins and languages generated from ACP to disk etc.
    It's always so much extra work and tedious than I feel it could be for 3.x when I need a test environment or develop something compared to the other sites that are hosted by the company I work in. So I usually just end up commiting most changes directly to prod and hope for the best, lol.
    I'll likely have a look at how to best setup our git and deploy environment for the IPS 4 communities during christmas. Hopefully I'll at least be abld to figure out a better approach than the way we have it in 3.x.
  3. TSP added a post in a topic: Default advertisment in ip   

    I think most tablet visits will get the mobile skin for ipb 3. Which could explain the drop in ad views. 
    The drop in ad views is likely not "your fault", but the result of changed browsing habits for most people (more mobile and desktop) and a significant increase over the years in adblock usage, do not track me extensions etc.
  4. TSP added a post in a topic: Request for API endpoints, IPConnect and documentation   

    I also need to figure out the IPS 4 equivalent of the XML-RPC API from IPB 3.X.
  5. TSP added a post in a topic: Template variables   

    @opentype : Look at the documentation you're linking too for how to write new if-section  
    Should be something like: {{if $data['key'] == 'something'}} Text {$data['key']} {{endif}}
    You could look at how things are done in the default theme by going into edit mode for it.
    I'm on mobile now, so can't provide any more detailed instructions right now, but do say if you need more guidance on that

    Editor content outside boundary on mobile
    My post here:  http://community.invisionpower.com/topic/405315-developer-documentation/?do=findComment&comment=2514610
    when I was originally writing it (and editing) I have trouble with navigating previous lines, there's no way for me to "scroll" and the only way I have to put a cursor there is to write long enough lines so it'll automatically scroll me sideways. It happens with this bug report too. It's caused by the URL.

  7. TSP added a post in a topic: Go to first and last page on mobile   

    On mobile, the "Next"-button is pretty much useless since you can already click the next page number. You could remove "Prev" too.
    Instead I want go to last and first page buttons. You wouldn't have to write it all out, but could use icons, something like << and >>.
    Because currently I find it to tedious to navigate to the first and last page on a mobile in long topics and I often do this. Before I could just switch to the full version in order to more easily navigate, but I can't do that anymore since design is responsive.
  8. TSP added a post in a topic: Move "Start new topic" above topic listing on mobile   

    Currently I get the impression I can't start new topics when I visit a forum on mobile. I have to first scroll down the entire page, which would not be very likely that new members would understand.
    I mean, shouldn't this button be a "call to action" in any forum?
  9. TSP added a post in a topic: WordPress IPS Connect on IPS 4   

    All apps and plugins will need to be redeveloped for IPS 4. You could try to contact the code author of this integration and check what their plans for IPS 4 are and whether they have an ETA. (For example "within two weeks of final IPS 4.0.0 to be released")
    Please understand that this can be a though question for any developer to answer, and they may not be very sure either.
  10. TSP added a post in a topic: Contributors to blog, amount of entries...   

    I very much agree on this one. 
  11. TSP added a post in a topic: Improvements to follow system (Advanced filtering and activity feed)   

    I'm feeling the follow feature is currently quite useless, because of the way it's setup as being focused on delivering notifications for example. 
    Issue 1: It notifies me of EVERYTHING, no filtering
    It notifies me of any comment, reply and content items that these members publish. Which is not what I would really want to see in the follow feature. 
    For example, I may want to follow the developers on here. But since I read every bug report and every comment on them, I wouldn't be interested in notifications every time they comment on bug reports. But I would be interested in knowing about their replies to topics or blog entries. For other members I may only be interested in activity in the gallery and so on. 
    I may also only be interested in knowing about new content items from them and NOT replies or comments on every existing content item. So I may want to only receive notifications when bfarber started a new topic, a new blog entry or a new bug report. 
    Currently I would be swamped in notifications if I used this feature, with no way to filter the incoming solutions. 
    Some suggested solutions:
    Go back to how it was in earlier pre-releases. Then I would just receive a new notification when new content items were started and not on every comment etc. they make Alternatively make that a choice I can do for each individual member I follow (with a default option if no choice is made) Go for a "digest"-option approach. Like: "This is the content bfarber posted the previous day". This would likely the least popular and useful solution Add advanced filtering options. When I follow bfarber I would get the option to also configure to filter away content from the apps I choose. I would also be able to decide whether I would only want new content items or also new comments / replies Make it more clear you receive the notification because you follow them.  
    Issue 2: The only focus is on notifications, rather than voluntary content discovery
    Notifications are cool and I wouldn't want you to take it away from the follow feature, but I would prefer that you improve it by solving issue 1 in some manner. The second issue ties in a bit with issue 1, because this issue becomes apparent by the amount of notifications you would receive if you started to follow a decent amount of relatively active members.
    When I follow people on Twitter, I don't get a new notification in my email every time someone posts something, that would obviously swamp it. What  Twitter does instead is to provide  a feed that only contains tweets from the people you follow and it usually requires your active  decision how much you wish to follow along on this feed. Another thing it does is to provide the option to create secondary lists, so you'll be able to just display tweets from the people you've placed in a "Developers"-list and so on.   
    The core of the issue is this:  There is no feed I can go to in order to get a quick overview of content I'm interested in. Essentially what I want would be for example a tab in the activity feed to only display content posted by the people I follow. Likewise there could be a similar option in "New Content" to only display content items where members I follow have posted in. 
    Integrate the follow members feature into content discovery areas, like "Activity Feed", "New Content" and "Status Updates".  
  12. TSP added a post in a topic: My problem or a bug?   

    Are you using the download of beta 4a, released yesterday? 
    I haven't seen this issue, but there are other translate issues in it:  http://community.invisionpower.com/4bugtrack/translate-issues-r927/
  13. TSP added a post in a topic: Lack of indication in mobile menu on who I am   

    I think the display name (and maybe a small avatar) should come back in the mobile menu. 
    I find myself unsure on which account I'm logged on with now. Someone else may have logged in without me knowing, it may be a tablet or mobile that someone else borrowed etc. Now it seems I'll have to post something or go to the messenger area to try and figure out which account I'm logged in on. 
    This insecurity on which account I'm in may be seen as weird, but it really makes me unsure and wants me to log out and then in again, just to be sure... Which would be a waste in 90% of cases probably...  
  14. TSP added a bug in IPS4 Bug Tracker   

    Can't set an existing language as default language, only new one
    When I edit the setting for a language pack that is not default, the option to make it default is not visible. That setting is only available when creating a new language pack.
    I can't find any option in the action menu / dropdown menu either.

    Translate issues
    Clean install of IPS 4. I'm not getting the translation to work. 
    I created a new language pack that I made the default language. 
    Then I enabled Quick Translating. 
    From the front end it seemingly works, I translated "New Content" and "Mark site as read" for example. After I refresh the page, it's still translated, so values are saved. 
    Now I wanted to check on whether this translated the proper language pack (since I saw no language choice option on the front end). So I went back to AdminCP and disabled quick translating. Then I went into editing the language pack I had created (and set as default) and searched both "Mark site as read" (original) and "Merk side som lest" (translated). I found the original string as expected, but the input field displayed nothing. Then I chose the tab "Translated" which also displayed no results. 
    So issue 1: It did not update the default language pack (which I had created). And there was no option for me to switch language pack on the front end (even though I have two languages, the default and mine). UPDATE: See this report for more information:  http://community.invisionpower.com/4bugtrack/cant-set-an-existing-language-as-default-language-only-new-one-r931/  
    Then I went into the edit for default language pack. I searched for both the original string and the translated one. It didn't display anything in the translation field here either! BUT, if I go into "Translated"-tab, it shows the string as one that has been translated, but the input value is not displayed. 

    So issue 2: The translated value is not displaying in input field. Even though it's translated and displayed as translated on the front end. 
    Now I started to try and update strings from this AdminCP-section instead. 
    Issue 3: Nothing happens when I press tab on my keyboard in this edit section. The language string have been automatically saved whenever I've tabbed in the previous versions and then moved on to the next string. But that no longer happens. Instead I'm seeing a small "Save"-button I have to press with my mouse. Clicking it just empties the input field in the ACP but updates the string on the front end.
