    Can't change sort direction
    The 'sort by' drop down gives urls such as ...sortby=last_real_post&sortdirection=desc&page=1
    However, I can't see any way to change sortdirection. Normally I'd expect clicking again on the same parameter (ie, click again on 'last reply' or whatever) would reverse sort direction, but this doesn't happen.

  2. rgf100 added a post in a topic: Please provide a list of all of the features that were in 3.X, but have now been removed in 4.0   

    There are fewer options for new-reply email notifications, a decision I don't understand. Have posted about it, but distinct lack of interest, so maybe it's just me. 
    I find it kind of odd that features people may rely on can apparently be 'forgotten', and given the amount of time spent telling us about new features, it doesn't seem unreasonable to ask a little time is taken to tell us about the missing ones. I remember cries of distress when topic sub-titles were done away with some years back. Sure, we might be able to reinstate our particular pet features, but it'd be preferable to know what's coming so we can prepare for it - or opt not to upgrade yet. 
    Yes, it's possible for us to do a full 3.4 vs 4.0 audit and see what's there and what's not, but surely this can be more efficiently done at the IPS end. There's also the issue that (and correct me if I'm wrong - I think I've read this, but it's hard to search for) that some features have been removed for 4.0 but are planned to be reinstated in 4.1. Do we wait for 4.1, stay with 3.4, pay for a mod?
    To take my own example linked to above - previously there were four options, now there are three. Where do I even look to find out how those four 3.4 options will map onto the three in 4.0. Do thousands of us test it individually (or more likely, not notice and deal with confused members) or do you tell us once?

    It's a shot from this site, which is running V4, no?

    Editor is parsing links even in BB code
    This is a screen shot from this site - same issue is present on mine, but that's on Beta 7 or something. 
    The editor is parsing links, even when they're part of well-formed BB Code. I'm assuming we're still meant to be able to type links in BBCode if we want?
    Also note this still happens when the link button has been removed from the editor bar, meaning that there's no way at all to provide linked text in that case.

    Better documentation = less time spent on support tickets...

    ACP inaccessible after uninstalling pages
    Tried to uninstall pages (was looking for a 'disable' option, but couldn't see one). 
    Got the error: A configuration or server error has occurred EX0 Something went wrong. Please try again.
    'Pages' has been replaced with _app_cms in the navbar
    /admin now returns the above error, so no ACP access at all 
    possibly relevant: I was logged into the site and the admin panel with different accounts.

    Posts can be submitted while attachments are still being uploaded
    As title, results in the attachment being lost. Should either disable post submitting while attachments are in progress, or delay posting until it's finished?

    Getting this on Beta 6 sending to Gmail. SMTP is affected, PHP is not. 
  12. rgf100 added a post in a topic: 'Offline' notifications for followed topics   

    I'll give this one, forlorn, bump....
  13. rgf100 added a post in a topic: 'Offline' notifications for followed topics   

    In 3.4.x, we have four options for notifications
    Immediate - you get an email for every reply
    Offline - you get an email for the first reply, but then no more until you log in again
    Daily digest
    Weekly digest
    4.0 seems to have removed the second, offline option. I struggle to see why, as for heavy users it provides a necessary halfway option between 'fill up my inbox' and 'hide everything in one long email'. 
    I might not want to wait 24 hours to know a topic's been updated. But similarly, I don't want 20 emails about it. 
    Am I missing something here?
  14. rgf100 added a post in a topic: Regular Releases. Could you please start doing them again?   

    ​Because you know it also contains tonnes of fixes that the people running test sites are eagerly waiting for?
  15. rgf100 added a post in a topic: Bulk mailings: unsubscribe-link as variable   

    Oh man, now I'm irritated. I opened a support topic on this exact issue months ago (#879068) and got told this:

    Spent hours (am not a coder) hacking something ugly up myself. And all the time it was in the HTML version automatically.

    Looks like the {unsubscribe} tag doesn't work in plain text - you just get the word 'unsubscribe' with no link. Would have taken significantly less time to fix that than start from scratch though.

    I like IPB, but a lot of the time it feels like I'm working against you guys, not with you...

    Quoted text is inserted into the editor as $initial_content. Where is $initial_content set? I want to customize it

      I can only wager a guess, try post.php

      There are several of them, and I can't find it in any of them. I must be doing something stupid.

    time spent banging head against wall: 3 hours. Time to submit ticket: 5 minutes. Time for IPB to fix my dumb mistake: 45 minutes.
