  3. The Old Man added a post in a topic: IPS4 - add Custom Profile Field clickable links?   

    Hi,
    IPS4 - can you now add Custom Profile Fields that are clickable links? 
    For example, a CPF that is a live URL to a social media profile that is clickable rather than an appearing as unclickable text?
    Many thanks.

    +1 from me! Strip that unnecessary code!

    Calendar - tablet mobile device suggestion more than bug
    When viewing the Calendar by Month or Week views, you have to click on the exact URL hyperlink to view a specific day, would be a more user friendly experience for tablets or mobile devices if you could just press/click anywhere on the whole Day 'square' like it was a button. It has the shape of a button after all.

    Page 1 of topic keeps reloading every time it loads - iPad
    Hi,
    Was reading page 2 of this topic:

    ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣http://community.invisionpower.com/topic/371223-self-hosted-mp4-files-in-ipboard/?page=2#comment-2519036 then when I clicked on page 1 after the first post loaded my iPad kept reloading the page saying "there was an error with this website so it was reloaded". Every time it displayed 1st post of page 1 then went blank and reloaded again. Something is triggering it, its a topic with code examples  so may be connected or something to do with the editor?

    Awesome, thanks everyone.
  8. The Old Man added a post in a topic: Will IPS4 support Google Account log-in?   

    Hi,
    IPS supports Facebook and Twitter Log-in out of the box. Any plans to support Logging in via a Google account and/or Google+ sync?
     
    Many thanks.

    I don't IPS would want their software to be associated with a website of this nature, possible criminal activity etc. there's probably something in the IPS License about use for such things.

    Oops, I did get one today advising bfarber had changed it to fixed. Must have sorted it! Thanks

    I'm following this bug according to what it says above but no email with bfarber's comment notification, only TSP's.

    Downloads - Description Details corrupted
    I've spent 30 mins checking this hasn't been reported already, but on many of the Downloads (old Marketplace files), the text description seems to be corrupted, with broken/missing text and BBCode. Very worrying! 
     
    Example:-

    Yes +1
    perhaps it's linked to member group, as I got email notifications re comments from other members but not bfarber too,

    Happy Halloween!

    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.

  4. The Old Man

    Feeling very Autumnal! :)

  5. The Old Man » IBSkin

    Thanks for the awesome Christmas skins Sherri - brilliant as always!

  6. The Old Man

    profile photo cropping is driving me nuts - sweet jesus.

  7. The Old Man

    thinks 3.2.0 is the most controversial IPB release yet. IPB Marmite is a good nickname for it!

  8. The Old Man

    The profiles looks awfully boring in 3.2, which feels too corporate in places or too Facebook in others - weird. Member photos and member avatars merged is a big no-no. Cropped my photo correctly and top of my head is still missing! Early days I guess but so far 3.2 is Marmite. Folks will love or hate it.

    1. Breadfan

      Checked your profile and your photo looks ok.I guess they're a bit cut off in mini view..(board index, status updates). Not a big deal to me.

    2. invisiblex_merged

      your profile looks good .. but yeah boring due to crap colors IPB use ..1980 style.

    3. Booth

      Some unfair comments on here. 1980'style? If you're going to make stuff up at least make it up well ;)

  9. The Old Man

    wonders what happened to my avatar! Its been cropped!

    1. .Ian

      Probably depends upon the original dimensions
