I feel bad for anyone translating for this app. There are literally thousands of lang strings! edit: actually, I think "literally" it's somewhere around 1990 of them (in my current version I am working on), so a few more before literally thousands). Very annoying adding so many of those. Many are repeat words or phrases, but I do that to give more ability to use a phrase differently in one area vs. another.
Well, it could be added, but I'm not ever really sure when I will add things in. It all comes down to how many people I think would want a particular feature, otherwise people pay to have something added in or if it's something they need quicker than when I plan to add it in, normally. If I do ever add it in, I guess I would put an extra field on the category add form where you would select groups. The thing is, then someone would probably want more and more permissions per category, so it would end up being more work than it seems. Also, you're talking about on the public side adding them, ACP side, or both?
I did one of those on my reviews app, but if I do one on other apps, I'm not sure whether to just add ip.board's punishment system into it or something else. Technically you could give certain groups bad permissions and move them into those groups. On the reviews app I make it built in where you can take away specific permissions for an individual, though.
I thought of having a setting for teams or clans and then realized it would be a huge amount of code to change just to let it work, so took it out and made that extra file. So it depends on how much I would have to change to get a setting in. Then for ip.board 4 I would probably do a setting for both of them, since I am already having to change so much for 4.0.
It would cot to remove the whole thing, but I don't guess it's a problem to remove the version. I'll have to get back to you on some of those other questions. The way battles was set up was all custom, so I can't remember for sure which list used battle stats. I know at least one of them would, depending on settings. Also, if most people would rather it say players, I would change it. I'm not sure which was is most commonly used. Players sounds like it would be better, personally.
Battles is just considered a whole separate area from ladders and tournaments in general (it wasn't even in at all until recently, when someone had it added custom). They're treated as basically just a one match setup, where you go to a team page or individual page and click a button to request one. In a ladder, I guess it could be considered battles, but is just called challenges instead and you go to the tournament page and click by one of the teams/members in the standings to challenge them. And then in the ACP using 0 for member count makes it a tournament without teams, but would otherwise work the same way. When allowing people to add a tournament form the public end it's less confusing, really, since you don't have t enter a 0 for that, for instance. You or anyone else who thinks some features can be improved can suggest things for the version for ip.board 4.0. There is going to be at least one more version for 3.4, but it's just custom features someone is paying me to add in. He's actually had version 1.5.0 of this app for a while, but now is having me add several more things, which I am still going to put into 1.5.0.
ok, download 1.4.1 and upgrade it tot hat and it should add guests into the browse and bypass flood control ones. The others they intentionally are not allowed to be in. I usually can't add changes this quickly, but it really needs guests allowed to view the app on sites where admins want them to. Marketplace is all messed up on here, so I didn't notice how to put in the changelog, then when trying to edit it, it is all messed up where I didn't bother trying to fix the changelog, so it still ahs the 1.4.0 changelog listed.
I just looked and there is no longer a set of settings titled that, so I guess I must have had it titled that in the past and so it's still showing it, even though no settings are in it. Which version did you install the very first time? When I have time I may check it out and have it remove that group on the next upgrade. You "may" be able to do a search and replace in the lang file to change users to something else, but it depends if it has that word in any of the "keys" because those can't be changed, so I would have to look to see. that clans file is in there because someone paid for custom work so I went through replacing them manually, since the keys did have the word team in them, so those can't be changed, only the ones that will be printed onto the screen can be, so it's tedious. Basically if you wanted to do it yourself, you would have to go through the lang file and use the find feature to keep going to every line that had user in it, and if it's to the right of an arrow, you change it, and if it's to the left of the arrow you don't. Then you have to go into the ACP manage languages area and import the file to overwrite the old one. To actually be in tournaments you have to be a member. But, yes, they should have been in the browse app setting and I guess the bypass flood control one (I don't think I really have much flood control in it, to begin with, though). It's somewhat a bug. I purposely took them out of the other selections, since guests can'[t join teams, tournaments, etc... I can probably fix it today, but I'm not sure of the best way of doing it. I guess I will have to make it a version 1.4.1 even though I have already been working on 1.5.0.
No problem, that is understandable. I also almost mentioned that, but then I started thinking the folder that sometimes gets renamed was a different one than the admin one. I haven't ever gone ahead and changed mine, but yeah it makes sense the whole admin folder is what they would suggest renaming.
