  1. The Heff added a post in a topic: 4.0.1!!!   

    ​I don't think it's clear enough. I may see a bug shown as fixed but I don't know for sure if it's fixed in the version I am downloading. You may have a bug marked as fixed which is fixed in 4.0.2 and I download 4.0.1 thinking it'll contain it.
    It can't hurt for clients to know in which release an issue is fixed.

    I'd prefer they support at least the mainstream ones. Photography and art forums are quite common so I don't think I would consider this a niche.
  3. The Heff added a post in a topic: Allow users to add Flickr (+others) images to gallery   

    I've previously run photography forums on which we loved to host our own galleries, but this presented a problem around storage cost when there are already cheap and free storage solutions available.
    Similar to the request around putting YouTube videos in the gallery, I'd like the ability to make use of some of the available third party photo storage services already available. Photography wise there's:
    Flickr - https://www.flickr.com/ 500px - https://500px.com/ There are more but the two above would probably represent the most prominent services available for photographers.
    There's also sites like DeviantArt (http://www.deviantart.com/) that would be equally beneficial to be able to link to.

    You need to ask the plugin author. The best place would be in their support thread.
  5. The Heff added a post in a topic: Moderation Controls - Hide Post   

    It is hidden though, so only staff can see it. I personally find that to be better as my staff previously got confused between toggle content and unhide. 
  6. The Heff added a post in a topic: PLEASE add youtube and other media ability to GALLERY   

    Yep, this would be perfect.
    We were going to use Gallery for our Battlefield 4 gaming clan so we can show our battle exploits and stroke our e-peen, but without the ability to embed YouTube/Vimeo/Twitch it's a non-starter.
    It's literally, and I'm using that word correctly in this sense, the only thing holding us back from using gallery.

    Don't do it @Lindy, you'll kill us all! 
     
  8. The Heff added a post in a topic: 4.0 GOLD!! WOOOOOOOOOOOO! How about a promotion?   

    I love the over simplistic debate over whether you should wait or not. It's quite true that if everybody did wait then no bugs would be found or fixed. Instead, you should probably put yourself into an appropriate category of user:
    I'm a power user and I'm comfortable with dealing with bugs and/or restoring from backups - gold is here!I'm not a power user and I'm not comfortable dealing with bugs or restoring from backups - you should wait.Coming to the IPS forums and claiming this is not a gold release is asking for others to challenge you. It is a gold release. It will have bugs. Power users will find them. They will be fixed.
    Congratulations to IPS. I would say I am a glasses half full kind of guy, but in truth the glass is always full whether it's with a volume or water, air or a mixture of both.

    ​It's about fairness and organisations like IPS have to consider that when offering bundles and deals. I too would feel pretty hard done by if my loyalty for continually renewing disadvantaged me in some way. It's particularly annoying when organisations reward new/infrequent customers over their loyal ones.
  10. The Heff added a post in a topic: Recent Entries - blog...   

    I'd like to suggest the Recent Entries widget/block has the dates of the entries added to it.
    Regularly when I load this site I see "IP.Board 3.3.x, 3.4.x Security Update" which immediately causes me to check the blog entry, only to find I've already read it and didn't need to worry.
    A simple date element on this widget/block would let me know it's an older entry that I can ignore.
  11. The Heff added a bug in Bug Tracker   

    Editor requires multiple 'taps' on mobile browsers
    I've tested Chrome and Safari, the latest version of both, in an iPhone 6 on this website.

    In both browsers there is odd behaviour when attempting to select the editor, requiring multiple taps of the editor to get it working.

    I've just tested on Safari as well and that's similar, but it manifests itself quite differently.
    On Chrome I have to tap the editor twice. The first time the keyboard shows none of the characters will register. The second time I tap the editor they will.
    On Safari the first time I tap the editor it focuses on it and the editor expands, but no keyboard loads. The second tap then deselects the editor entirely. A third tap then loads the keyboard and I can type.
    I also noticed that in portrait orientation tapping the editor seemed to "zoom" the display and I needed to pinch to resize. Not ideal on a responsive skin.

    I've just been able to reproduce on the latest version of Chrome on iOS. I'll try Safari now. 
  14. The Heff added a post in a topic: Anyone else struggling with mobile Chrome?   

    I believe there are certain restrictions on web browsers on iOS which means they have to use Safari's rendering engine. If so, it would probably stand to reason it would affect both browsers.
    I'll test on my iPhone 6 again and report back.
