    fundamental CSS reset missing
    It seems in normalize.css, there are no rules for UL/OL, Firefox and Chrome will impose a 40px padding and varying margins to these two elements (possibly others). I've noticed several of the different UL/OL styles in IPS 4.0 wastefully including:
    margin:0px; padding:0px; when a rule added to normalize.css  like this:
    ul,ol{ margin:0px; padding:0px; } could remove the redundancy in the css, allowing skinners/dev's to apply their own padding/margin if so desired without having to fight the browser. Chrome reports in dev tools that its adding such styling, however in Firefox, it does not, so this small inclusion into the normalize.css could reduce the amount of headaches later on. that is just my two cents however.

    Okay another alpha showing of iMenu. This time i am showing off some of the refinements i've made since the last video and more of the capabilities.
    App menus that have attachment options, you can add menus children menus to it, but they will appear below the attachments. Magic blocks will convert into "mega" menus, having the children to the left, and the block content to the right. Children menus will not be able to be made into magic blocks or have the other two special features app menus can have (include featured and include popular), this might change, we haven't set it in stone yet.

    Showing off attach categories, include featured and include popular.

    Basically what these three things are:

    Attach Categories: This is just a generalized name, for the feature in Promenu 3.x of attach forums and attach categories. There are differences, mainly this will not create "editable" children menus, that will be controlled from the apps that has this feature. It was extremely complex how I had it in promenu 3.x and wish to keep it in iMenu, but make it work a lot better than it use to it. It was insane amount of code to keep the children menu synced with what was being done in the app. there were also numerious problems of extremely weird things happening when they were removed or moved out the parent, so they will only exist in the "cache" for iMenu. for people not familiar with the concept, basically if you have categories in the supported apps, this will attach them to that menu, using the permissions of those categories to determine if the end user can see them or not. with forums, it will list your forums/categories/sub-forums.

    Include Featured: this is simple, IPS 4.0 introduces "featured", if the app will not support this feature, it will still work, just work differently. In the forums, it will look for featured topics, from a starting date range, and return results. if it can not find any results in the specified date range, it will drop the "date range" from its query, and randomly grab the set number of records, regardless if they are featured or not. it will then store them in a cache, the time to keep them in the cache, is by days, after the cache is expired it will pull new ones.

    Include Popular: for forums this will basically, with in a number of days, pull the topics with the highest number of Replies, the cache for this will refresh by default every 30 minutes, or it can be configured, to keep the content fresh, in other apps it will use other criteria.
    ^ there will be an "extension" interface for these features, so apps that we did not include, can be built and included later on with a bit of effort, but nothing to hard (plan on doing up a guide once iMenu launches and I finalize everything involved).

    I'm really happy with how iMenu is shaping up, have not gotten a lot of feedback, a few likes here or there and the "alpha/beta" we are running is still looking for people willing to test. so if you like or dislike something that you've seen so far, let me know or if you want to be in the alpha/beta, Please PM and I will create you an account on our site, and include you into the proper group.

    We have not yet decided how to handle the upgrades from ProMenu to iMenu when it becomes available, we are strongly leaning towards if you agree to the new terms and renewal and have an active subscription to ProMenu, you will be added to iMenu customer list, this will also include basic owners (as there will not be a basic or plus edition, just the one edition as we would need to purposely gimp to make a basic edition and that goes against my ethos).
    There will more than likely not be an actual upgrade path (where iMenu takes ProMenu data, and uses it), but this is not set in stone atm.

    So again, let me know what you all think so far, any features you definitely want to see brought over from ProMenu 3.x to iMenu, or any features that you have in mind that wasn't in ProMenu. thanks.

    Whoops\Exception\ErrorException thrown with message "Use of undefined constant IN_DEV - assumed 'IN_DEV'" Stacktrace: #0 in /home/michael/public_html/402/applications/core/interface/js/jslang.php:22 seems to be needing \IPS\IN_DEV , was wondering why some of my lang strings had disappeared.

    Selects in Firefox version 30+

    This is how select's appear in firefox version 30+

    and this is how they appear in chrome version 38/40.
    it appears firefox is either bugged or they changed it.

    This is partial preview for the featured option, for the forums, since it is the only "app" that is done for it. working on "popular" and the "mobile/responsive" versions, might have a video for them tomorrow. let me know what you all think.
  8. CodingJungle added a post in a topic: ProMenu Plus   

    this is the second alpha showing of what is done so far. decided to drop jqueryUI core effects as they are not included in IPS by default and with promenu being globally loaded (always loaded) didn't want to run into any conflicts, So i've redone the slide effect for the submenus, and added in several of the other options for menu effects, including hover/click/hover then click from promenu 3.x as well as show/hide,fadeIn/Out and slidUp/Down. 
    Lots still do as not everything works (as seen in the video) :).
    Let me know what you guys think so far. btw the arrows are the default, you will be able to define a FontAwesome icon for each group in, i just do not have that configured yet , so if you don't like them, don't worry you can change them later on .
    Haven't worked on the magic block yet, it is why it just sorta expands beyond the width of the window, will have configurable options for it in later versions. again, let me know what you all think, will have a demo of the "responsive" menu in a few days, have learned a lot since the 3.x responsive, so it wont be as it is :). hopefully will also have a demo of what "bw_menu_featured" and "bw_menu_popular" are

    it has its own responsive menu built into it. the only skin we really say it is compatible with is the default skin, it works with a majority of others as long as the hook points are in place. It will more than liking need to be skinned for additional skins as well, as there is very little inheritance ability.

    ​Yep they are just lang string placeholders atm, didn't have them defined yet when i did the video.
    Haven't fully defined the Magic blocks abilities yet, just have it going to the width of the content right now, will probably have a setting in there for it to size and different position options like to the left, center or right.

    No we updated the links in the file listing, as our redirects were not redirecting, there appears to be a problem with our mod_rewrite (or our rules) cause they have stopped working and everything appears to be correct, so we figured it would be simpler to update them.
  15. CodingJungle added a post in a topic: ProMenu Plus   

    Let me be frank.
    You posted in the middle of the night/early morning. I don't start work till 9 AM as i have kids to get off for school.
    Digital downloads are considered services, we rendered said service, support is conditional, we offer it, you asked for support, it was provided in less than 3 hours after your original post. 
    we recently did a site merge of and, you pointed out our redirects links are broken, which we are fixing now (I don't know about you, I don't go around to every post i've ever made to verify that links are still working). So i do apologize that portion is broken.
    The installation instructions for promenu however are posted on our site, so I don't see what the problem is here.
    If you are under that tight of a deadline for work or they gave you unrealistic deadline, that is not my problem to be honest with you. If you waited till the last minute, I can only suggest you plan better as I am a developer and have over 10 years in, so I know how deadlines work. 3 hours is a very good turn around for support, in fact its lower than what we state on our site, of 24 to 48 hours.
    If you have a problem, please contact us on our contact form on our site, or send me a Personal Message here. I will be more than glad to listen to your grievance, and then robert and I will decide if a refund is warranted, cause of right now it is not, as your expectation was serious delusional considering it was posted in the middle of the night, and it was responded to with in 24 hours.
