  1. Marcher Technologies added a post in a topic: Versions -> Add SQL Query   

    Please change this to a textarea. You are asking us to provide a query using \IPS\Db in an input not large enough to show all of it. This results in massive time wastes just writing it to be sure the code is valid.
  2. Marcher Technologies added a post in a topic: IP.Connect group syncing PLEASE, so our premium groups can be cross-site   

    I would like to see this for no other reason than the fact the group synch on this site is still a custom hook means it is still prone to breakage on major versions. It is something that would see heavy use, and.... IPS themselves would use it.

    @Ocean West Please submit a ticket.
    ​It would likely be easier to just make a new payment gateway versus trying to 'hack' a gateway using an incompatible API.....
  4. Marcher Technologies added a post in a topic: Redactor jQuery editor instead of CKEditor   

    ​I've actually seen and used a redactor replacing the cke in 3.x(seems to have been a very custom task by the look of it).... I'd argue that would be the software's implementation causing these issues, I've not experienced any such issues with it.
  5. Marcher Technologies added a post in a topic: Enhanced Reputation/Warning System   

    I myself was one of the above on this very site. It's usually worth a pm to the given user. They may not realize the disruption they are causing to the community at large. I didn't.
    The functionality described is far more likely to have such people cause more of a disruption leading to a ban instead of realizing a little tact goes a long way.

    ​Please look at the screenshot. 'Allow Multiple Uploads' is an option, not a requirement. Yes you can still do that...
  7. Marcher Technologies added a post in a topic: Change the editor   

    ​It doesn't help the CKE devs don't seem to understand the 'cascading' in CSS and just redefine *everything* per browser instead of using browser-specific stylesheets to *only* fix quirks. -.-
    You don't end up just making 'a' CKE theme, you end up making at least 3 (webkit, gecko, IE) due to that, or you end up completely ripping apart the base CSS to bring cascading sanity into play. Either is as much work as the other.
  8. Marcher Technologies added a post in a topic: Keep database IDs with converter/import script   

    If I may be so bold.... Isn't 'merge' a bit out of scope for a converter application? There is a fair amount of additional logic there that has nothing to do with converting from another software(much less the fact the ability to 'convert' an IPB to an IPB seems very much against the grain of the application's purpose).
     I'd argue 'merge' should likely be a separate app and need not be provided by IPS directly.... My 2 cents.
  9. Marcher Technologies added a post in a topic: Messenger - Edited time byline   

    It would be extremely beneficial to have the edited time on personal conversation messages as 3.x had, as it stands the other participants may not even be able to see any edits have been made, or that the message post might be undergoing heavy edits even though a good portion of said edits have been submitted before the participant viewed. It is a little thing, but it was extremely helpful when working with clients on 3.x here.
  10. Marcher Technologies added a post in a topic: Bring Back Attachments Custom Field Type to Pages   

    ​That is not actually something I can say for certain, I wouldn't wish to give any false impressions, I am not staff, such is not my decision.
    I just see no point to a dedicated 'attachments' field when the new upload field covers all the bases the 'attachments' field used to....

    It is both of them near as I can tell.... The upload field got a massive upgrade. It can handle either being a single-file upload field as was present in 3.x, or multi-file attachments.

    http://community.invisionpower.com/4bugtrack/pages-upgrades-to-not-update-upload-and-attachment-fields-properly-r5242/
    I would advise anyone actually using attachments within content databases on 3.x to wait for that to be fixed before upgrading.
  13. 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: http://community.invisionpower.com/profile/49-charles/
    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.
