    Since v3.4.x is still being supported, perhaps IPS could release a responsive skin or upgrade? Or too much work?
  2. The Old Man added a comment: Page 1 of topic keeps reloading every time it loads - iPad   

    Hi, I know this bug was quickly dismissed but I'm finding it happening more and more on this site (a problem occurred with this webpage so it was reloaded) when I browse it on my iPad 3 iOS 8.2 Safari browser. It's getting worse!
    Just now I was just browsing the Chit Chat forum, clicked on the topic called "Show Yourself", and the page immediately kept trying to load but saying the that same message over, and over again. Sometimes I see perhaps the first few posts before the rest of the page was white and then it would reload again. Eventually I saw a new page with an error message reportedly haven given up reloading.
    Screenshots attached. 
    Thank you.

    Happening on iPad ios 8.2 for me too. About 30 seconds and 3 presses on text editor area before the ipad keyboard appears and I can type.

    I was using an iPad with IOS8.2 if it helps.

    Editing profile removes existing Location and Interests
    I just entered some text in the Location and Interests fields in my profile, they saved okay and were visible in my profile.
    i then went back to Edit and they fields in the Edit pop-up were blank. I entered some text in the About Me field and saved, and it wiped out the existing text in the location and interests fields.

    Error when opting to follow member
    Hi, (sorry about the messed up layout, I'm using an iPad 3 iOS 8.2 and it's so buggy in the RTE it won't let me insert uploaded image attachments where the cursor is using the + symbol on the thumbnail, they keep appearing at the top of my post and I can't drag and drop them!)
    I just went to follow a member from their profile.
    I clicked on follow, it took me to this page, then I clicked on Update Preferences not knowing if I had to complete this next step, it then showed me an error message about raw data?

  7. The Old Man added a post in a topic: Please add option to follow the Knowledgebase   

    The Knowledgebase is really useful to keep up to date with, for example Rhett's guidance on dealing with the non-responsive mobile skin and changes to Google's bot , or the updated Media BBCode which many site Admins will miss. However there is no way to keep up to date with new content other than visiting the page which seems odd. Please can you add a 'Follow or Subscribe' option so we can receive an email notification of new articles?
    Many thanks!

    Gallery - Upload image then get a message saying I have to upload at least 1 image
    Just went to the Gallery here on this website in the Members Gallery to test. I uploaded an jpeg, it appears under the upload box as a thumbnail, so I click on Done and it says "You must upload at least one image or one movie".

    Understood, thanks Rikki.
  10. The Old Man added a post in a topic: Two step verification option   

    Great idea.
  11. The Old Man added a post in a topic: Status Updates   

    Plus one for me. At one time status updates were a huge feature, then they got hidden away so my members stopped using the facility. Messing about with this block is a further step backwards.
  12. The Old Man added a post in a topic: Selection and delete mass for emoticons   

    Excellent idea! Much needed!

    Digest email notification unreadable
    l just received a digest email and I use an iPad. The text and graphics are very small, worse in landscape than portrait mode.

  14. The Old Man added a comment on a file: [IF] IPB Shoutbox   

    Yes me too! I'd be hung, drawn and quartered if I upgraded to v4 before Shoutbox was compatible! 
  15. The Old Man added a post in a topic: Please restore date format editing ability in IPS4   

    I found this topic via search because Ive just come across this issue with having a UK and separate US calendars. It's visible in the Upcoming Calendar Events Hook. I'm in the UK but both calendars entries show as US style. The format for Calendar is in the main Calendar management settings and not in the settings for individual calendars, which may be resolved in v4.

    V4? Just release it already!

  2. The Old Man

    looking forward to IPB4!

    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.

    Feeling very Autumnal! :)

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

  7. The Old Man

    profile photo cropping is driving me nuts - sweet jesus.

  8. The Old Man

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

  9. 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 ;)

  10. The Old Man

    wonders what happened to my avatar! Its been cropped!

    1. .Ian

      Probably depends upon the original dimensions

  11. The Old Man

    is enjoying the UK Spring weather which will no doubt be our Summer!
