    I would imagine it is for us to make the case that X feature is needed.   IF it was something from 3.4.x that seems to be missing, then we need to point that out.

    This is Absolutely Fabulous Charles! Thank you very much for providing it!

    Probably related to mine.  One of the bug reports I submitted was that reputation did not carry over from 3.4.7 and if you try to upvote or downvote a comment, you get an error.

    ​I was just trying to get the topic title into a consistent format.  It's not theatrics.  Could you add the prefix to this topic so it is easier to find a report like this in future?

    ​Here is an example of how bad search is.
    I was searching for all topics with the title prefix [Missing]... I tried it inside of quotes and without and the results appear the same.

    The first time one of the topics with the [Missing] prefix appears in search results?
    Page 7... and that's only if I filter it to Content Type of Topics.

    ​Because it is bad for SEO regardless of where it is on your site.  Page titles should not be longer than about 75 Char... 150 char is really pushing it.   You'll start getting dinged by Google in Webmaster tools for having page titles that are too long.

    It's been asked for for at least 10 years.   January 2005

    It looks like the birthday field carries over from an upgrade from 3.4.7, but there is no way to make it required or even available during registration.

    Say's it isn't a bug.... to which I'm like:

    You'll give us the option to make Location available/required during registration.
    You'll give us the option to make Gender available/required during registration.
    You'll give us the option to make Interests available/required during registration.
    You'll give us the option to make bloody obsolete ICQ available/required during registration!!!
    I mean.... it's only been begged for by customers for  years . 2009 , 2010 ,  2010  again, 2011 ,  2013 ,  2014
    It is resolved with a very simple hook in 3.4.7.... so why can't it be basic functionality in 4.0?!  It's not like making this one field available in the registration screen is going to breach every server's warp core! 
    I really REALLY want to hear the tap dance on THIS one why we can't have the same options for birthday during registration!!

    ​Congrats. Me too. We'll be celebrating 15 years next year.

    That is a rather pedantic/semantic way to look at it.  Yes is was made from scratch. Yes there is certain functionality we expect to carry over from the previous version even if the code itself is all new!

    They may be minor for those starting a new website from scratch, however they aren't minor for those of us that have been around for a decade building our websites on this software and finding functionality that we've come to rely on to be removed or forgotten.
  13. CheersnGears added a post in a topic: [Missing] !! Pages - Article Meta fields   

    ​Make that it's own [Missing] post.  I didn't use it and found it trouble prone, so I'm not sad nor surprised by its demise.

    If standing outside the entrance to the building smoking a giant cigar is going to be the new "thing", then me carrying a fire extinguisher to lunch is going to be a new thing too....
