    You can disable it  http://screencast.com/t/bd9Pji2lt
  2. Andy Millne added a post in a topic: Why aren t permissions for blogs/apps showing here?   

    Blogs that are created by users are not the same as forums and categories set up by the site owner. If Blog had categories you would see those here.
  3. Andy Millne added a post in a topic: Staff or devs know where this function is hiding?   

    It's a method in \IPS\Content\Item, \IPS\Content\Comment, \IPS\Content\Review it can be extended by individual app item/comment classes.

    ​Manual queries will be shown in the upgrader if it is being run on a table exceeding 150k rows
  5. Andy Millne added a post in a topic: Followers notification X real followed 'content' notification   

    The thought process was friends in 3.x didn't actually do anything beyond being a symbolic link. As tera pointed out in this thread it also allowed people to see at a glance people they had close links with which I agree is a valid use. My preference for this would be to separate out the notification options as has been suggested but that's my personal opinion and I can't say if that is what will happen. As I mentioned it's not a straightforward change at this point. Feedback topics like this are useful for us but we need to know why not just what to be able to implement the best solutions. It sounds like most of the points in this topic would be solved by separating out the notification types and the rest is just terminology (friends vs followers) which can be addressed via the language system.

    yes, I understand this may not be a solution for you Adriano but it is a solution for those who believe that followers are sufficiently different from friends.

    If you feel your users will have difficulty with this and the concept of friends is sufficiently different to followers then you can opt to not convert these during the upgrade. Please understand I'm not dismissing the suggestions and I agree there are some valid points here. It is, however, important we understand why the existing solution is not suitable for some customers before deciding if it is sensible to start what amounts to quite a significant refactoring.

    I forgot to add, we also identified an issue with a slow member upgrade using InnoDB specifically and added a fix for this in beta 4. You may wish to alter the table type to MyISAM temporarily to test.
  9. Andy Millne added a post in a topic: Time used on upgrading   

    You're right it's quite difficult to answer questions like this as it is very much dependent on the hardware used as well as how it is set up. An optimised web server will of course be faster than a development setup and 3 hours for the members step wouldn't be completely surprising on this type of environment but it does seem a little on the slow side. It took us around 2-3 hours to upgrade the 400k members here to give you some sort of comparison.
    We've made some further tweaks to this step for beta4 so you should see some improvement but it's also worth noting that the members step is by far the most intensive and the posts aren't even touched during the upgrader. Post rebuilding is run as a background task after the upgrade is complete so you can get the site back online as soon as possible.

    Just to clarify, it's not a forced conversion it is now an upgrade option. Thanks for providing some use cases tera

    ​If it's annoying why can't you just unfollow them? I'm not being awkward I'm just genuinely curious what purpose you are following them for if you don't want updates.

    Friends is also in some way still possible (in gallery at least for now) using restricted albums.  http://screencast.com/t/GKZ5oXr2
    It's likely that this concept will be expanded to other apps over time.
    Arguably the friends feature didn't really do anything in 3.x so you could say we've simply added a more useful followers functionality.
  14. Andy Millne added a comment on a file: Classifieds   

    There is a version for 4.x under development yes. As I hope you can understand though the priority right now is finishing IPS4. Without a complete IPS4 there is no future version of Classifieds. The version for 3.4.7 is fully functional and fully supported via PM.

    data-action skips data-confirm
    I noticed while fixing a polls bug (view results link) that if a link has both a data-confirm attribute and data-action then data-confirm is skipped.
