  1. Marcher Technologies added a comment: Pages upgrades to not update upload and attachment fields properly   

    In regards to the second issue I'd recommend the latter option. While an editor field is commonly the content field, I'm aware of at least a dozen databases using attachments I configured personally for clients where this is not the case, so updating to an upload field would avoid issues.

    content count not formatted
    for example, Charles has over 10k:
    That should be formatted according to locale for display, it looks odd as it is.

    ​If you are speaking of 4, your argument for it is invalid. There is no separate user name in 4. It served so little actual purpose IPS removed it.

    cannot embed review link
    as you can see above, it is neither displaying the review, nor retaining the link as given.... Either this should support reviews as well as comments, or review url's should not embed.

    [This Site] PM view exploded.
    Not sure how to even better describe that. PM id# 182325, we ended up starting a new one because neither of us can reply. The last reply seems to have triggered the issue, 'comment' id# 398493. Providing id's so you can review what is actually in the database...

    I realized that after I started getting errors indicating files were being overwritten, but had already reported it by then. Thanks for confirming.

    From the board index, active users hovercards:
    I caught it doing this with Daniel F's card first, refreshed, Daniel F had moved on to reading a topic, but was able to reproduce again on that same page load with Millne's card. Not sure if is just an issue on this site or within the suite itself.

  8. Marcher Technologies added a post in a topic: Favourite Option for Posts   

    Umm... ok, i could maybe see the point of a bookmark feature in the acp like there was in 3.4.x due to the unique admin session invalidating links.... but for the front end, isn't that what your browser bookmarks are for? Most web developers are not inclined to want or attempt to duplicate browser functionality in a web software. The browser can do far better a job due to being a native program than any web app could anyway.

    Emoji is within the supplementary multilingual plane . The MySql charset utf8 only supports the basic multilingual plane. utf8mb4 is required for emoji to be saved to the database correctly.

    ​It honestly shouldn't be as hard to draw as it is in this community.
    I've learned to choose what I release a lot more carefully, oftentimes the greatest clamor for xyz functionality will have little to no actual interest upon and long after release.
    A few can make a lot of noise here. At one time, I was one of those few, even playing champion of the people. XD I tend to think with a more level head now, thankfully.

    ​Make a feedback topic about this directly then?
    ​Oh, let's see shall we? Of my own 3.x offerings, I can name at least 2 that are made irrelevant, superseded or very reduced in functionality due to 4.
    Database Forms and Widget Kit both did something that is now core functionality, proof in whole that the above is very much not the case.
    Please note, I am not at all bitter about that, I was filling a void in functionality, to see that void filled allows me to get on with doing what I needed said mod for in the first place. If the sales from the addon weren't enough to cover my development time on it, I would assume I am doing something wrong... No 'buyout' is needed for IPS to implement it better in their own way, they provided me the opportunity to make money off of such in the first place and that is enough.
  12. Marcher Technologies added a post in a topic: Crowdfunding Approach to Integrating Existing Plugins/Add-ons Into Core Product?   

    You do understand 4 was all about stripping the bloat, right? They didn't need our help to make 3 bloated. As a result, there is a critical eye on what is truly needed by the majority, and the resulting software is based on literally years of feedback. I think you seem frustrated by advanced tags and prefixes not being core. Most people don't need all that. Some would take it even further than he does as a custom thing. Core is not supposed to grow up and out into some sort of monster. It is supposed to serve the majority of needs while allowing the modifications to serve the rest. You want a monster with everything under the sun baked in, go use wordpress or something, I like having a clean base to dev off of, which we have in 4.
  13. Marcher Technologies added a post in a topic: Crowdfunding Approach to Integrating Existing Plugins/Add-ons Into Core Product?   

    Joel has it right.
    Proof in point, common request in 3.x was to easily add any content block to the board index sidebar. While a few mods were made to serve this need(including one of my own creation), that did do the job, they are as nothing compared to the inbuilt widgets and block manager of 4. IPS does incorporate critical functionality into the core, and they do listen, but they are not going to just adhoc re-release an existing modification. For one thing, they can do it better, cleaner, than we can hooking in. For another, it'd be unethical.
  14. Marcher Technologies added a comment: Odd issue with notification count   

    ​It was on this site, and considering the very specific steps to reproduce, it was fixed already(I haven't seen it happen again since reporting).  this was rc6 IIRC.
  15. Marcher Technologies added a comment: widgets added via plugin do not work at all within the pages app   

    ​Mostly....seeing this in rc7a only on the initial add of a widget into any hot zone on a Pages page from the sidebar manager. refreshing the page and reopening it has them appearing/working correctly, again, only plugin widgets.

    oddly, this is what they mean by profile comment, the functionality to disable it still works. ;)

    1. The Old Man

      Hi thanks Marcher. I understand now, I've never noticed the ability to use the Status Update/Profile Feed on other members before. Just viewed your profile and the input message changes appropriately.

    Easter Weekend. :) Bye! Be back Monday.

    1. surferboy

      Danger - alert! Easter vacation intrusion. Subject member has infiltrated IPS in violation of his self-proclaimed Easter weekend hiatus. Security to sector 6.

    2. Mikey B

      Have fun!

    3. sobrenome

      Could please take a look at this post:

  8. Marcher Technologies

    Free mod issues? Not my problem! Sorry, I have more rewarding things to do with my time.

  9. Marcher Technologies

    Demo site: Upgraded to 3.4.1, 2000 spammers pruned, 198 members left, If i nuked you, apologies.

    1. Mikey B

      wow, 2000?

    2. Marcher Technologies

      yeah... I've been unable to mass-prune spammers for a long time.... bug fixed in 3.4.

  10. surferboy » Marcher Technologies

    Are you at the 2013 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas this weekend?

    1. Marcher Technologies

      0.o umm.... no? Think about 3,000 miles north.

    2. surferboy

      Wait, you're in Alaska? Brrrrrrrrrrrr

    1. Ryan Ashbrook

      I wanted to conform and be like the rest of the staff. Lol.

      Unfortunately, "Ryan" was taken. By a former IPS Staffer no less.

    2. Mikey B

      When will we see "Marcher T" ? ;)

    3. Marcher Technologies

      Would likely end up being just "Marcher" ;)

  11. Mikey B » Marcher Technologies

    Which OS do you use? Is it Ubuntu? :)

    1. Marcher Technologies

      yes... used win for years, got really really tired of win7 sucking up >2gb of ram for basically nothing... tried Ubuntu 12 Precise and thoroughly enjoyed it... not going back. :)

    2. Mikey B

      Ahh I used to use Ubuntu, looked at some of your screenshots of mods, I wanna go back now :D

    3. Marcher Technologies

      I had last tried at I believe Ubuntu Mandriva 8 which was just .... nasty.
      12 Precise is.... extremely usable... to me, at this point, less extraneous RAM usage, multiple desktops, easy localhost setup, and a sane terminal with copy/paste says it all :)

  12. Marcher Technologies » Aiwa

    well, that was a quick nuke of a topic... suppose I am not allowed to call them like I see them.

    1. Aiwa

      haha. Yeah. That was funny.

  13. Marcher Technologies

    Well this is neatish.

    1. surferboy

      yeah, I found that too

    2. surferboy

      just the mark of a super busy coder, no?

  21. AlexJ » Marcher Technologies

    Thanks for helping with IP.Content!! Cheers!

  22. Marcher Technologies

    Fail.... IPS Gives us the ability to change version on bugs... and it is abused within the week...

    1. Show previous comments  2 more
    2. surferboy

      I'm confused. Who has failed or what has failed? Is it the ability the change version on bugs that has failed? Who or what has been abused, the change version, or how people have used it the change version?

    3. Marcher Technologies

      The change version is being abused, the people doing so are the fail.... The only reason for US to change a version is to correct our submission with a wrong version... not going around changing reports to no version assigned that are marked as fixed.

    4. surferboy

      only way to reach you I guess .... "The member Marcher Technologies cannot receive any new messages" is your mailbox full? Yikes, you are a busy coder!!!!
