  1. Marcher Technologies added a post in a topic: How would I insert both JavaScript Code and a JavaScript link (to Google) in the Header of a Page Template?   

    ​swap the order of the addtohead calls..... maybe?(not sure, this is into the realm of your custom js code)
    Uncaught ReferenceError: google is not defined this is in the console output, and is coming from the js code within your custom 'weather.js' content page.... seems to be wanting the google js loaded first.
  2. Marcher Technologies added a bug in IPS4 Bug Tracker   

    [Pages]Incorrect "I Posted" status
    If you log in to my account(you have my permission to do so if needed to reproduce), this bug report shows a star in the bug report listing, indicating I posted it:
    The problem is that I did not post it, nor have I commented on it, thus that would appear to be marked incorrectly?

  3. Marcher Technologies added a post in a topic: Change Title Tag - which php file?   

    define( 'CCS_PAGE_TITLE_RECORD', '{record_name}' ); I may be confused, but that in your constants file should do what you ask?

    Read status in 'Test Posting Messages' forum
    Appears to be accounting for new posts and topics I cannot see. All of the topics I can see in this forum  I have read, and are marked so, yet the forum's indicator on the index still shows there are unread topics.

    Content rebuild?
    It's been almost a week, and there are still many instances of unformatted quotes/code/lists from content posted before the upgrade on this site.
    Could this get another look please? Maybe the task is stuck? That seems rather inordinate.

    [Pages]"Categories I follow" for database without categories This menu option should not be present when a given database uses no categories.

  7. Marcher Technologies added a post in a topic: Back to top option   

    #ipsLayout_header { position: fixed; top: 0; } Is easily achieved with very minimal CSS. Having needed to do exactly that in 3.x before, quite an improvement in ease to implement. 
  8. Marcher Technologies added a post in a topic: Facebook Video   

    I do not provide or maintain the player. The media tag simply uses an iframe to a specific url on facebook that provides the player for a given linked video. I have literally no control of that unfortunately.
  9. Marcher Technologies added a post in a topic: Similar Topics   

    Yes, you can. :smile:
    Please let me know if you hit any issues. While I know it to work well in these conditions, a mismatch between locale and db character set(for example latin1 database and utf-8 character set/locale) can cause trouble, if present.
  10. Marcher Technologies added a post in a topic: Similar Topics   

    Option to show similar topics collapsed by default for users not having the cookie set.
    Tis an option. It does not behave like that at default, I simply prefer it out of the way on initial load on my demo.
    Think what you will, but that actually has nothing to do with the price of the modification. I doubled the price when I updated it with relevancy support. That took a lot of work, but was very much needed to give the best 'Similar topics' results possible, and requested by clientele.
    Your mention of Sphinx likely denotes you have tried free alternatives. Please rest assured, you will not be disappointed if you make the purchase. This modification was created on client request for a better similar topics modification, and I do strive to keep it ahead of the pack, relevancy being the latest addition to improve the result set.
  11. Marcher Technologies added a post in a topic: [RESOLVED] URL Search parameter?{search_term_string} Using the same example domain given for reference. At most basic, omitting the search_app and such sees it default to a forums search.
    That said, this looks like it would only work if searching is enabled for guests. Something to consider.
  12. Marcher Technologies added a post in a topic: Similar Topics   

    File Name : Similar Topics
    File Submitter : Marcher Technologies
    File Submitted : 15 Nov 2012
    File Category : User and Social Engagement
    Supported Versions : IP.Board 3.2.x, IP.Board 3.3.x, IP.Board 3.4.x

    This Hook Adds a display of similar Topics in one of three positions while viewing a topic, under the first post of every page, in a depreciating js-powered flyout, or under the topic, with user-customization options.
    The flyout shows on the bottom right of the page when the end of the first post of the page has been reached or after, and hidden when the end of the first post of the page is below the viewport.
    As a result of an implementation detail, this modification also adds relevancy sort support for the forums application search.
    Features Include:
    • Sphinx Support.
    • User Preferences, including minimization, number of topics, forums to display similar topics in, and position.
    • Configure the default position and number of topics to show for members, and the same for guests and crawlers separately.
    • Configure what groups may not view/use similar topics.
    • Configure what groups may not customize the position, number, and forums displayed in of similar topics and thus are forced to use default.
    • Configure what forums may not display similar topics by default.
    • Configure "Stop Phrases" words, characters, and phrases to be stripped from the topic title used for searching for similar topics.
    • Configure the minimum length of a word in the topic title to be included in the search for similar topics.
    • Option to Override the main search setting to force searching for similar topics into SQL mode.
    • Option to show similar topics collapsed by default for users not having the cookie set.

  13. Marcher Technologies added a post in a topic: [RESOLVED] Topic Tags in IP.Content Block   

    Ack, my apologies, I had forgotten feeds do not grab the tag data in the query for results, as such, it needs pulled from the database manually.

    <php> // Make an ID for this template instance $tmpID = preg_replace('/[0-9]/i', '', md5( uniqid( microtime(), true ) ) ); if(count($records) && is_array($records)) { $tids = array(); $tags = array(); foreach( $records as &$record ) { $record['forum_data'] = $this->registry->class_forums->forum_by_id[ $record['forum_id'] ]; $tids[] = intval($record['tid']); } if ( ! $this->registry->isClassLoaded('tags') ) { require_once( IPS_ROOT_PATH . 'sources/classes/tags/bootstrap.php' ); $this->registry->setClass( 'tags', classes_tags_bootstrap::run( 'forums', 'topics' ) ); } $tids = IPSLib::cleanIntArray($tids); $this->DB->build( array( 'select' => 'xrr.tid', 'from' => array( 'topics' => 'xrr' ), 'where' => "xrr.tid IN(".IPSText::cleanPermString(implode(',', $tids)).")", 'add_join' => array( $this->registry->tags->getCacheJoin( array( 'meta_id_field' => 'xrr.tid' ) ) ) ) ); $data = $this->DB->execute(); while($re = $this->DB->fetch($data)) { if ( ! empty( $re['tag_cache_key'] ) ) { $tags[$re['tid']] = $this->registry->tags->formatCacheJoinData( $re ); } } foreach( $records as &$record ) { if(isset($tags[$record['tid']])) { $record['tags'] = $tags[$record['tid']]; } } } </php> As the <php> block at block top should do what you are asking.
  14. Marcher Technologies added a post in a topic: [RESOLVED] Topic Tags in IP.Content Block   

    That would explain much, the code provided by yourself was for a posts feed. :smile:
    <php> foreach( $records as &$record ) { $record = $this->registry->topics->parseTopicForLineEntry( $record ); } </php> <foreach loop="$records as $record"> <span>{$record['tags']['formatted']['parsedWithoutComma']}</span> </foreach> That should do it in a topics feed.
  15. Marcher Technologies added a post in a topic: [RESOLVED] Topic Tags in IP.Content Block   

    <php> foreach( $records as &$record ) { $record['topic_data'] = $this->registry->topics->parseTopicForLineEntry($this->registry->topics->getTopicById( $record['topic_id'] )); } </php> <foreach loop="$records as $record"> <span>{$record['topic_data']['tags']['formatted']['parsedWithoutComma']}</span> </foreach> Should do the trick. :smile:

  2. PHP_Paul » Marcher Technologies

    Hey Marcher, can I get your help in the Tagged Data plugin thread? :)

  3. Marcher Technologies

    Away This weekend seeking new living arrangements. To those awaiting a PM reply I apologize, this takes precedence, will be back Monday evening.

    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.

  5. Marcher Technologies

    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:

  6. Marcher Technologies

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

  7. 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.

  8. 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" ;)

  9. 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 :)

  10. 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.

  11. Marcher Technologies

    Well this is neatish.

    1. Mikey B

      What is? :)

    2. Marcher Technologies

      If I can stay logged in, the iOS IPS app.

    3. Mikey B

      Ah yes, it's great! Love how it looks the most. :)

    4. Marcher Technologies

      that, and that drag-down refresh :)

  12. chilihead » Marcher Technologies

  18. Saurabh Jain » Marcher Technologies

    I wrote a long pm - and your inbox is full - how can we contact u

    1. Marcher Technologies

      I have listed Contact methods here on my profile.... i get way too many PM's here, direct contact through IM/Email is the best certainty.

  19. Joerg.K » Marcher Technologies

    your pm box is full. i want send you a message,with a request for a job

    1. surferboy

      yeah, I found that too

    2. surferboy

      just the mark of a super busy coder, no?

  20. AlexJ » Marcher Technologies

    Thanks for helping with IP.Content!! Cheers!

  21. Marcher Technologies

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

    1. 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?

    2. 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.

    3. 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!!!!

    4. Marcher Technologies

      -.- My Inbox here's shelf life is about 3 days..... try to keep room... but they keep flooding in ;)

    5. Graeme S.

      Please ignore this comment. I'm doing it to see if there is a bug with the "My Content > Members" search thing. :)

  22. Marcher Technologies

    pushing out updates... standby :) 1-by-1 they tumble past... not enough hours in the day round here.
