    4) And we're done - lol
    That got fixed fast

    1) Regardless of how many fields your custom db has two of the fields must be flagged special. One as title, the other as content. Once you enter something into what field is marked as the title field the url to the record is displayed and you have the option to edit it. At least the tail of the url. The rest you can take care of with rewrite rules on your server.
    2) Not really but you can add on the tag system and then use predefined tags and achieve the same. There are some other ways around this as well by just creating yes/no fields in the record for each category you would like to have and then filtering on those for display.
    3) Yes, CKEditor plugins and/or write your own. Not as easy as the former bbcode system but it's there.
    4) Locked, pinned, featured, hide/unhide are available and approved/unapproved *should* be available (there is a sorting option for this in the ACP ) but I can't see a way to set that status right now. Front end is the same - you can set pinned/unpin, hide/unhide, and featured - but not approved/unapproved. Either not built out yet or I'm missing it. There is a built in revision system that tracks all record changes and allows for reverting to any previous edit if that was on your list of things you are looking for.
    5) Sounds like a custom page and/or custom block. I would call this super easy. You already can just browse into the categories as is in stock Pages and see the record list for whatever is in that category.
    6) Might need some code for that but it doesn't sound too hard; mainly just a custom page I think. This is for front end display right? Closing off options on record entry would be a different beast.
    Others should be able to confirm/deny or add on to this.

    Spectacular all around!
    IP.Pages could maybe use some of that custom field type love as well (unless I'm missing that functionality somwhere...)
  4. Flitterkill added a comment: [Beta 5a] "Edited by" line hard-coded HTML strong wrapped   

    Thanks - never bothered looking as it appeared on first glance to be internal.
  5. Flitterkill added a bug in IPS4 Bug Tracker   

    [Beta 5a] "Edited by" line hard-coded HTML strong wrapped
    <strong>Edited <time datetime="2015-01-22T06:09:39Z" title="01/22/15 01:09  AM" data-short="14 min">14 minutes ago</time> by member_name</strong> The above is outputted by {$comment->editLine()|raw} in the post template to display the "edited by member_name" line. It kicks out with opening and closing strong html that are added internally as part of the line. If we are trying to style this line the hard coded <strong> html is a bit of a barrier as it isn't part of the template. Can we get the auto-appended strongs pulled from this? For the default IPS skin you can just add a span with a class that bolds the text instead.

    Thanks Andy - very different from the 3 system. Seems better through and through - just would never have looked there at first glance. 
  7. Flitterkill added a post in a topic: Question for devs re: widget permissions   

    Thanks! So it's under staff section. Ok, I can see why I missed that. And I see there is also some granularity for administrators as well. Still, suppose I had a situation where there are some people I want to have access to the ACP . Some to handle the Commerce section. maybe a person or two to wrangle just forums. That's not rolled out for 4.0 yet is it? Admin is all ACP or nothing?
  8. Flitterkill added a post in a topic: Question for devs re: widget permissions   

    ​Can you find it? I can't find anything in the ACP myself...
  9. Flitterkill added a post in a topic: Question for devs re: widget permissions   

    Actually meant this:

    Having people who have permission to deal with some stuff in the ACP is fine but I can see some people going nuts with block manager not realizing they are changing it for everyone.
    We don't have ACP granular permissions do we? It's all or nothing right now I think.
  10. Flitterkill added a post in a topic: Question for devs re: widget permissions   

    Is there a place (or any way at all) to lock down permissions on who has access to the widget configuration/placement flyout tab. You know, the drag and drop thing for sidebar blocks?
    I'm missing something somewhere right? It's not just available to all administrators right? Actually, do we have any ACP controls besides administrators = all access?
  11. Flitterkill added a post in a topic: Theme System - Missing Vital Functionality   

    We brought up the font/js stuff in the alpha site and someone on staff was going to "think on it" - that's not meant as a dig; just to note it's been out there for awhile.
    All we need really is a duplicate of the image system already present in the theming section. The functionality is already there. Dupe it twice. Fonts. JS/misc. Done! (Or conversely change it to a single add-ons pile to handle fonts, images and js, etc. and manage the rest internally)
    Without this though and skin packs are almost certainly going to have to be more than just a single portable xml file unless as Tom pointed out above we start using the image section in an un-intended manner.
  12. Flitterkill added a comment: Designers mode: not enabling (unstyled page)   

    Bump. I've been puttering in other areas of 5a and just got around now to trying to enable designers mode. Exact same behavior. WAMP setup.
    Theme directory is created and files built out in those directories but I get the same no-css page, refresh and dmode is off behavior.
    EDIT: For what it's worth my build was from a day or two ago. Just downloaded a new copy, installed, created a new skin, enable/disable/enable/disable, seems to work fine. Will see how the hours ahead treat me...
  13. Flitterkill added a post in a topic: Possible to enable thread description on hover?   

    Chrome is fine here; stock. The delay before the hover popup used to be almost instantaneous. This drove people nuts on the old Alpha site so it got backed off to 3-4 seconds of hover before firing.
    I'd clear your browser caches for IE and Chrome before trying anything else. But the hovers have worked (and still work) forever.
    Also, try hovering over a user's icon. Should get the popup user profile.
  14. Flitterkill added a comment: Going back in browser can cause two searches   

    This AJAX problem on search is an old one that was fixed before. Might be from the alpha preview site days. I'd link to the report/s (I made them) but I got no clue where that old bug tracker stuff even is any more.
  15. Flitterkill added a post in a topic: Beta 5 soon?   

    Man, ask a simple question get a three page thread out of it
    Checking right now there are only 30 pending bugs in the tracker. Impressive. That's barely more than a page.
    Looking forward to 5, RC (and Chat) can't be far after.
