  1. erosion added a post in a topic: Polling improvements please   

    This has been requested for so long, it's getting hard to understand why nothing is done. Honestly, the option to hide poll results (until a given date or admin action) and guest voting cannot be that hard to implement.

    Polling improvements, please!
  2. erosion added a post in a topic: Calendar Event API   

    I would definitely be interested in any added functionality for the calendar.
  3. erosion added a post in a topic: RSVP Restrictions   

    This would be an extremely useful feature.
  4. erosion added a post in a topic: ability to add transaction fees to payment gateways   

    ...and specifically in Finland, where we reside, the law allows all payment method -based surcharges as long as the customer has been fully informed about them before the payment is processed.
  5. erosion added a post in a topic: ability to add transaction fees to payment gateways   

    I don't think that's entirely accurate (allowed in UK only). In the EU version of the user agreement, which is what applies to us, that paragraph has been rephrased as follows:

    The ability to add transaction fees - both fixed and percentual - to payment gateways would be very useful.

    For example, receiving payments via PayPal is much more expensive for us than the other methods we use, so the only viable way to allow Paypal would be introducing an additional transaction fee. Currently this is not possible, at least not without making PayPal-only duplicates of all of our products.
  7. erosion added a post in a topic: better logging of manual account credit changes   

    When an admin manually adjusts a customer's account credit from the ACP, currently all that is logged is that a change was made, and the account credit sum before the change.

    For rather obvious bookkeeping & security reasons, the log entry should definitely include what the actual change was / what the account credit was after the change.
  8. erosion added a comment: Upcoming Calendar Events sidebar applies timezone difference two times   

    The bug can be reproduced just as well with a completely unmodified hooks.php :

    By setting my user accounts timezone to something that makes an event take place near midnight (eg. 23:30) for me, the sidebar will show the event taking place on the following day, hence proving that the 'doubling' of the timezone difference takes place regardless of the strftime string.

    [color=#282828][font=helvetica, arial, sans-serif][size=3]To be more precise, the only modification I have made is to the strftime string on line 358 of hooks.php:[/size][/font][/color]

    [color=#282828][font=helvetica, arial, sans-serif][size=3]FROM[/size][/font][/color]

    $c_time = gmstrftime( '%x', $event['_start_time'] );

    [color=#282828][font=helvetica, arial, sans-serif][size=3]TO[/size][/font][/color]

    $c_time = gmstrftime( '%A %d.%m. %H:%M', $event['_start_time'] );

    Upcoming Calendar Events sidebar applies timezone difference two times
    I have modified the hooks.php to display the start time of events in the sidebar and it has worked ok for us so far.

    After updating both the forum and the calendar to the most recent versions, the sidebar now displays the times wrong.

    By modifying the users own timezone setting it becomes apparent that the timezone difference is applied two times to the sidebar list of events.

    -all of our users have GMT+2 in their own settings
    -sidebar start times are +2 hrs off
    -changing the users timezone setting to, for example, GMT+3, results in sidebar times being +3 hrs off.

    There seems to be no option to hide poll results while the voting is still ongoing...? I imagine it would be very simple to add such a basic feature.
  12. erosion added a post in a topic: Calendar in mobile skin & mobile apps?   

    I was just wondering why the calendar is not included in the mobile skin? It's understandable that it's not yet in the brand new iOS app, but the mobile skin has been around for a while, right?

    For our community the calendar is the most important part of the suite, after the forum itself. To be honest I feel a little cheated that the calendar is not a 'full member' of the suite, so to speak, as I never would have expected it to be this way when purchasing.
  13. erosion added a comment: Switching to mobile skin on desktop, users unable to get back to full version.   

    Same experience in 3.3, how is this classified "not a bug", beats me. I'm using IPB default skins. If users choose mobile skin, they can't get back to the full version on the mobile device. One user account got stuck in the mobile skin even on desktop computers, this can be manually fixed from ACP->Template Tools->Reset Skin Set Usage.

    I had to disable the mobile skin altogether because there are so many issues, it's basically unusable now.
  14. erosion added a post in a topic: Moving from SMF 1.1 & MODx   


    we are planning to migrate our ~100 user sports team site to IPS. We are using SMF 1.1.11 embedded in MODx CMS, which handles news articles, static content and dynamic content such as team/player statistics. We intend to use IP.Content to handle all the articles / blogs.

    We currently use a semi-working bridge between MODx and SMF to sync user accounts and logins, but we should be able to do the conversion just from SMF, discarding the MODx user data, without too much loss of information.

    Our SMF installation is slightly modded, in addition to the MODx bridge there's a shoutbox and a 'who voted what' mod installed.

    Two questions:

    1) Some people seem to have experienced problems recently with the SMF 1.1 conversion, what is the current status? Will the modifications in use cause any problems?

    2) We have approximately 100 hundred news articles in MODx which will need to be moved over into IP.Content. They are in the MODx MySQL database as plain html, just header, paragraph and image tags. CSS (which is to be discarded) in an external file, images on the same server. Besides the actual content, I think only the 'time published'- field within the CMS itself would need to be moved over to IP.Content. Is there any way to ease our manual workload in converting these articles to IP.Content? We would probably want to move all the images into IP.Gallery so I'm guessing we'll have to do that part by hand, but if we could just get the html data converted, it would be fantastic.
