  1. ptprog added a comment: Smileys stored as images   

    This issue is still present in IPS4.  If we change the smileys URL, existing posts with smileys will show broken images.

    Because you may be making dozens of requests to gravatar.com for the default image, i.e. a single image that could be obtained directly with a single request.

    I know the solution has its disadvantages, still I think it would be nice to have that option.

    There should be only one image being loaded for all users without avatar, so only one request would be sent to my server.
    (Even if there were more, it would still be faster to load the avatars, as there are actually two requests for each avatar that has no gravatar.)

    By making gravatar opt-in, lots of useless requests to gravatar.com, all returning the same image, would be avoid.
    So, I guess that would be a good option.

    Smileys stored as images
    If we are using a CDN, and we make a post with a smiley using the "More Reply Option" (i.e., without using fast reply) and RTE, the smiley is saved as [i]<img ...>[/i] in the database.
     
    This will cause problems if we stop using the CDN (or change its URL for some reason).
     
    (There are also some cases where the image is converted to the BBcode IMG tag, shown if we use the basic editor, but I've been unable to figure out the steps to reproduce the problem.)

    You can specify a different URL for the uploads folder, which should solve the problem for avatars (and maybe for attachments?).
  7. ptprog added a comment: Guests and the Time   

    Isn't the timezone for guests always the same?
    Isn't the DST associated with timezones?
     
    If this is the case, I don't understand why DST is not detected for guests.

    BTW, there were some bugs fixed in the rebuild posts tool.  Try updating the files:  http://community.invisionpower.com/resources/bugs.html/_/ip-board/post-content-rebuild-malforms-lists-and-code-boxes-r42384

    You have here an example of a bug that would be solved rebuilding post content (in case the rebuilding tool was working, of course).
    I used to run this tool in my test install when an upgrade caused formatting problems in old posts.  However, I quickly realized that this tool is not reliable.

  11. ptprog added a comment: Huge amount of follows causes extreme posting delays.   

    I just mentioned that setting because you don't need to set up cron jobs to prune notifications.
     
    Regarding the scalability problem, I agree with you, something needs to be done to address it.
  12. ptprog added a comment: Huge amount of follows causes extreme posting delays.   

     
    I think you need to look at this setting: "System Settings  >  Members  >  User Profiles > Keep user notifications for".
    (The only limitation I see is that you cannot choose a period shorter than 1 month.)
  13. ptprog added a comment: code blocks from pre 3.4 posts   

    Ok, I assumed the parser was prepared to deal with legacy content automatically.
    So, we have to rebuild posts after upgrading from 3.3?  If that's the case, I guess you may mark this report as "Not a bug".
     
    Thanks for the clarification.
