    I hate to be the bearer of bad news but I just had this issue happen to me, though this has been the first time in quite some time. I have the patch installed.

    Here's the URL I was given when clicking on a link in an e-mail notification for new posts to a thread I'm watching:


    Interestingly I've noticed that when this does happen (even before the patch was installed) a white bar appears at the top of the page, but ONLY when this problem occurs. Here is a screenshot of that:

    Thanks for the clarification.

    It looks like the patch was never applied to my install (that has been taken care of). The patch conflicted with an issue I was having with APC enabled and in the midst of things the session ID patch never got re-applied.
  4. dyelton added a post in a topic: [Feature request] Make header image optional so entire background can be tiled   

    The header feature of the blog would be MUCH more useful in customization if the header field was optional and only the tile field required. I would also like to see the ability for users to upload their own custom header tile image for the background and choose the color of the text (with a pre-designated default font that can't be changed by the user).

    As it stands right now, you have to make sure that the right of the header image matches perfectly with the left side of the tiled image, otherwise it looks terrible. Is there any hope for having this small change added in a later release?

    You should probably submit a ticket then.
    Already done. I had a ticket opened regarding the issue already, but somehow it got marked resolved so I opened a new ticket referencing the old one.

    The patch still doesn't resolve the issue unfortunately...at least not for my installation.
  7. dyelton added a post in a topic: bbCode in Text Input/Text Area?   

    I could have sworn you (or another staff member) posted the db template you used for the link section a while back...but after doing a search I can't seem to find it.

    Nevermind, I found it...it wasn't in the forum, it was in the resources section (of course!): http://community.invisionpower.com/resources/official.html?record=180

    Makes your coding much easier I'm sure! :P

    Sheer space IMO. For example, I have a field that I only want a website URL placed in. The WYSIWYG editor takes up a tremendous amount of space on the screen, way too much for such a simple thing like inserting a URL.

    Perhaps an even better option would be to create custom fields? Something where I could say anything in this text input box, parse as bold, or as a URL, etc (chosen from a list in the ACP). Just a thought.

    I have tried this and it didn't work, so I'm just assuming that we can't use bbCode in text input/text area fields? I don't want to use the WYSIWYG for a simple entry like a single URL. Would love the ability to just have the user wrap it in linkgoeshere

    Gah! In playing around with it trying to do this I did figure this out...apparently I just didn't try hard enough before.

    Scratch my suggestion. :)
  12. dyelton added a post in a topic: [Suggestion] Sorting of categories...   

    I have a database I'm working on that really needs to have static sorting for categories. It would be great if we could have the choice in the ACP to sort A-Z / Z-A or have the ability to drag categories up/down to position them manually like we do with forums.
  13. dyelton added a post in a topic: Choice of avatar only instead of avatar/photo   

    It would be absolutely exceptional if we were given a choice in the ACP to have a user's avatar be the global representation of that user instead of the current method which is having avatar and personal photos in parallel. I, along with many others from what I gather in various posts I've found, feel that having both separated is slightly confusing to the user and really doesn't give good representation to that user. Sure, it may work better in a business environment like you guys have here, but it doesn't work well with many of our forum setups and the way they have organically grown.

    This post has a solution, but obviously requires editing the source code...something that would likely be overwritten in the next minor release and every release afterward. Seems like it would be a great choice to give admins a choice of how their board is setup. Allow personal photos and avatars, or only allow avatars globally. Please find it in your hearts to make this a reality in a future release. :)

    This was using Firefox 3.5.

    Post needs minimum height?
    The issue is obvious when you see the attached image, but the user information block is having information cut off on very short posts with extra options like signatures being disabled. This is using the default IPB skin.
