    Preset tags are not checked on submit
    If you require users select from a list of preset tags in a forum, you can still force custom tags by manipulating the form. /

    Shift + Enter + Image link glitch (Pagebreak parsing bug)
    This works (Enter text, press enter, paste link to image):
    Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing.

    This does not (Enter text, press shift+enter (pagebreak instead of new paragraph), paste link to image):

    The text above the image is removed once the image link is parsed.

    Unable to insert attachments in bug tracker

    Also, attachments that are not inserted into the bug report don't display anywhere, even though they remain "attached" to the bug report when editing it.

    HTML entities in the subject of notification e-mails
    E-mail notification for a reply from Jυra.

    Also, her name appears to break user mentions. If you try and copy and paste the "υ" in her name for mentioning, it just returns blank

  8. Kirito added a post in a topic: How to trace a spike in page views?   

    ​That actually just crossed my mind, I believe I remember Rhett mentioning Baidu being blocked on IPS hosting before.
    I use Piwik personally, but that's primarily a self-hosted analytics solution. You could set up Google Analytics to get a general idea of where you're traffic is coming from, but I don't believe you'll get any IP logs or anything of the sort. I haven't used Google Analytics in years, so I don't know what all you can do with it today.
    Once you create a Google Analytics account, you'll just need to copy and paste the tracking code into the  Google Analytics code setting. You can find it in Settings » System » Search Engine Optimization .
    It may or may not provide you with useful information. If you're receiving a spike in legitimate traffic from a website referral or something, it can show that. But if it's a misbehaving bot or scraper, it may not be able to provide you with anything useful.
    How big is the traffic spike to start with? (What is your normal 15 minute online average, and what is it during a traffic spike?)

    ​Yes, that's fair enough, it depends what kind of forum you're running mainly. A business forum or just a small hobby forum. You wouldn't upgrade a production corporate/business website to an unstable beta release, but for small hobby forums as long as you're well aware of the risks and maintain backups it's your own decision. I'm just saying if you do use beta software you have to expect bugs and can't really expect rapid release fixes, you just have to deal and live with them.
    I plan on offering a public preview on a beta subdomain of my production forums probably when the first RC is posted.

    My first guess would be Baidu. The only real way to know for sure would be to monitor the online list during a traffic spike, or set monitoring using some type of third party analytics tool.

    It will take 3 video uploads that violate YouTube's terms of service to permanently terminate your websites YouTube account. One (or two, I can't remember) just to temporarily restrict your upload privileges.
    But yes, YouTube has an API you can use. You could actually have users link their YouTube accounts and possibly make this work. It would probably be complex to implement as a plugin/hook but I'm sure it can (probably) be done.
    The YouTube idea actually doesn't sound that bad to me.

    What kind of hosting plan do you have, John_C?
    Because if you just have any type of standard shared hosting plan, you almost certainly won't even be able to use this feature you want. Extremely few shared hosts offer ffmpeg support on their servers, because video encoding is a  very  resource intensive process. The storage and bandwidth requirements are also equally massive.
    Looking at the website in your signature, I actually see that you appear to be hosting with GoDaddy of all providers. You can absolutely  forget  about utilizing a feature like this there.
    I've worked on developing platforms for video hosting before. I can do this because I spend hundreds of dollars a month investing in dedicated hardware that I lease from a datacenter to be able to run web applications like this. One of my servers has a ~6TB RAID array for storage and can easily consume terabytes worth of bandwidth a  day  and needs a dedicated 1Gbps connection line to sustain its peak traffic. Are you willing to pay that much for hosting? Can you manage a server on your own? Are you willing to hire a competent Systems Administrator to do it for you? Can you properly configure and tune your system for efficient media streaming?
    You have to realize that you're not Facebook. You can't be Facebook no matter how hard you try. If you want to offer highly complex and advanced features like this, you're going to have to invest significantly more time and money into implementing them, significantly more time and money than the average client is willing to put forth. This is a very niche and very complex feature that 99%+ of clients wouldn't even be able to use even if they wanted to, likely including you as well.
    Don't get me wrong, it would be awesome to have something like this, but this isn't some simple plug-and-play feature IPS can just throw in as an optional thing. Video streaming/hosting is huge and complex issue to deal with, both on the software and hosting side. It's simply not something that would be even remotely realistic for IPS to offer.

    It's not CSS, it should be in the headers HTML template. Look for this,
    <i class="fa fa-bell"></i>
  14. Kirito added a post in a topic: How do I replace the bell and message icons in the theme header?   

    I'd imagine you'd just need to edit your template and replace the fa-bell icon with any other Fontawesome icon you want.
    I don't have an active install of IPB4 running right now, otherwise I'd tell you where to specifically apply the edit, but it shouldn't be hard to find.
  15. Kirito added a post in a topic: Regular Releases. Could you please start doing them again?   

    Yeah, IPS has stated that they've gathered a lot of valuable data from upgrading the community here. So it's expected that they have a  lot  to work with and improve on now, so the delay in the next beta release is fully understandable.
    I don't think it will be much longer before we start seeing RC releases though (which is of course just my speculation).

    Out of curiosity, could you tell me who it is IPS recently hired?

    this again is just meant as a friendly correction since I've seen you do it a lot in the jobs board.*

    As a friendly correction (since I don't think English is your primary language), when you want to tell someone you'd like to take up a project for them, you generally say you're "interested in it", not "interesting in it". Interesting just describes a specific something. "This is interesting" vs "I'm interested in this", as an example. I hope that makes sense, and I don't mean to insult you or anything, this again is just meant as a friendly...

      My bad, I'll do it :)
