The Old Man's Activity

  1. The Old Man added a comment: Digest email notification unreadable   

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

    Great idea.
  3. 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.
  4. The Old Man added a post in a topic: Selection and delete mass for emoticons   

    Excellent idea! Much needed!
  5. The Old Man added a bug in Bug Tracker   

    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.

  6. 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! 
  7. 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.

  8. The Old Man added a post in a topic: List of sites / pages done using CCS   

    Your website looks absolutely gorgeous, well done. IP content is so cumbersome, painful to use and so dated looking, seeing Pages in operation has given me hope and a desire to keep it. 
  9. The Old Man added a comment: About Me text editor doesn't fit page   

    Hi Andy, I don't have access to a v4 ACP but that's interesting. Not sure why I as an everyday Admin would be expected to change this setting though, shouldn't it automatically wrap if there's not enough room? Accept that the editor behaves oddly on an iPad though.

    Awesome, thank you!

    About Me text editor doesn't fit page
    When using an ipad3 at least, the text editor is partially hidden...

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

    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.
  13. The Old Man added a post in a topic: "Paste as plain text by default". Should be enabled by default?   

    +1 from me! Strip that unnecessary code!
  14. The Old Man added a bug in Bug Tracker   

    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
    Was reading page 2 of this topic:

    ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ 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?

    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.

  5. The Old Man

    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!
