  1. rgf100 added a post in a topic: 'Offline' notifications for followed topics   

    I'll give this one, forlorn, bump....
  2. 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?
  3. 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?
  4. rgf100 added a comment on a blog entry: 4.0 - Moderation Part 5: Warnings   

    I'd really love to see the word 'Warning' ditched. Sometimes it's useful to have a tracked method of communication with a member which looks friendlier than this. 
     
    EG If I have some elderly lady sign up and post all in CAPS, I'm going to want to ask her to stop doing that, I want other moderators to see it's been done, and I want to have a record of it. But I don't want to scare her off with big red WARNING messages. 
     
    If we want to get scary, that's quite easily done in the actual message. 
     
    I know I could do this at the language / skin level, but I think it'd be preferable built-in.

    Can't edit long posts in BBCode mode
    I have a long index-type post - maybe a couple of hundred lines, most lines a link. When I try to edit this in BBCode mode I get the error message "you must enter a post". If I switch back to rich text mode, it works fine. Editing smaller posts is fine in both modes. Chrome, if it makes any difference.

    Yeah, not fixed in Chrome I'm afraid.

    Topic Moderation and Delete Options
    Having just upgraded to the latest version from 3.2.something...

    When I'm on the topic moderation panel, eg,
    index.php?app=core&module=modcp&fromapp=forums&tab=unapprovedtopics

    and hit delete, I'm taken to the 'hide' options. There's no way to get to a plain old delete (which, given that most topics getting zapped from the mod queue will be spam, is the one you're most likely to want).

    And while I'm here, topic moderation still leaves a little to be desired. Actual post content should be available so we can rattle down the list making quick decisions, and we should be able to make those en masse - give us 'approve / hide / delete' radio buttons and one 'submit' at the bottom.

    Warn log pop-up skin issue
    The warn log pop-issue is too big to fit on netbook screens and there's no scroll bar. This makes the 'add new warning' button inaccessible. You can reach it by zooming out, but you might want to fix it.

    'You cannot reply' to a pm conversation
    [quote]
    [b] You cannot reply[/b]

    All other recipients have left this conversation
    [/quote]
    Is the message at the bottom of the screen. However, by clicking the 'reply' on each message, I can. That's when logged in as admin, don't know what happens to normal users.

    Mobile blog skin - comment author names
    On the mobile blog skin, comment author names aren't shown - only avatars. However, if a poster doesn't have an avatar you've got no way of knowing who left the comment, and if more than one poster doesn't have an avatar, you've got no way of following the conversation.

    Reputation and Closed topics
    Should users be able to change reputation on closed topics? They currently can, I'd have said no.

    Mod queue - failing to return after deleting topics
    I'd mentioned this [url=http://community.invisionpower.com/topic/345449-the-mod-queue-praise-and-future-improvements/page__fromsearch__1]here[/url] - after deleting a topic you get redirected to the forum the topic was in, rather than to the mod queue. I'd thought this was a lack of a feature, rather than a bug, but I now notice in the delete topic url, eg
    app=forums&module=moderate&section=moderate&do=09&t=34615&f=22&auth_key=fca868c20507a08e4bb0f8bec22b01c4&[b]return=modcp:deleted[/b]

    you have that [b]return=modcp:deleted [/b]at the end - so clearly it's [b]meant [/b]to be coming back to the mod queue. However, it ain't . . .

    Signature line lengths
    When you have the pre-group limit on number of lines in a sig turned on, it seems to set a maximum number of characters per line of about 80. Can we get that specified on the signature edit screen though - it just took me five minutes of trial and error to work out how long a line could be.

    The actual bug - characters in BBCode are getting counted towards that per-line character limit. If I add
    [CODE][url=http://www.reallyreallyreallyreallyreallyreallyreallyreallyreallyreallyreallyreallyreallyreallyreallyreallyreallyreallyreallyreallylonglink.com]My Link[/url][/CODE]
    to my sig it'll tell me I'm over the limit, although it obviously just displays as
    [url="http://www.reallyreallyreallyreallyreallyreallyreallyreallyreallyreallyreallyreallyreallyreallyreallyreallyreallyreallyreallyreallylonglink.com"]My Link[/url]

    Blog editors can no longer view others drafts
    Blog editors can
    a) no longer view drafts written by others
    b) can not set published blog posts to 'draft'
    c) CAN edit others published posts.

    They used to be able to do all of these, and as far as I can see they should be. If you're not going to let them, they need to be contributors or authors, and they shouldn't be able to edit other people's posts.

    FYI, "can moderate own blog" is set to Yes for the member group.

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

    1. Wolfie

      I can only wager a guess, try post.php

    2. rgf100

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

      admin/applications/forums/actions_public/posts/posts.php

    4. rgf100

      Looks like (haven't checked) what I want is in admin/applications/forums/sources/classes/post/postClassForms.php line 597. Haven't tampered with it yet though . . .

    5. rgf100

      Yep, that's it.

    6. Wolfie

      Glad you found it. Good luck. :)

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