  1. ptprog added a post in a topic: Instant Notification Floods Followers   

    It would be nice if admins were allowed to select the available notification options, otherwise it's difficult to control the volume of emails generated by the community.
     
    Also, I think the options provided are not particularly good.  On one hand, the instant notifications send to many mails (it may be useful if we want to follow a topic from the email).  On the other hand, the offline notifications makes me miss some updates, as it does not send me an email when I'm online.
     
    What is the reason to not send emails when the user is online?
     
    Anyway, I think an  intermediate  option, similar to offline, but that sends notifications even if the user is online, is needed.  AFAIK, this option is present in other software such as vB, SMF, or phpBB (but more important, this option makes sense to me).
  2. ptprog added a comment on a blog entry: IPS 4.0: Editor - Part 1: Content   

     
    This feature would be really nice...
    Give people the ability to choose the editor and the markup language used.  You could provide an editor that just uses HTML (and forget about BBCode conversions).  Those who want to use BBCode would only have to create an editor and a BBCode to HTML converter.  The same would happen for Markdown, Textile, or any other markup language people want to use in their forums.
  3. ptprog added a post in a topic: Format URL custom field as a link (security issue)   

    One of the custom fields I use with IP.Downloads is an URL, and I would like to have it displayed as a link (like the "Demo" field in the IPS Marketplace).
     
    A possible solution for that is to use the value
    <a href="{value}">{value}</a> for  Field Formatting .
     
    I'm not a security expert, but I guess this is not a secure solution.  For example, if the user puts in the field the value
    javascript:alert(123); we get a link that calls a Javascript function:
    <a href="javascript:alert(123);">javascript:alert(123);</a>  
    Is there any way to avoid this?
    How serious is this kind of issue.
  4. ptprog added a post in a topic: FEATURE REQUEST - remove reputation points   

     
    We can remove reputation points when using the like system.  I don't see any reason to not allow users to remove reputation points.
  5. ptprog added a post in a topic: Feature Request: E-mail Validation   

    I always assumed that before the validation a user could not login...  I believe most of users if do not receive the validation email either register another account or go away.
    So, I think this feature request makes sense.

    Nice work! :)
  7. ptprog added a post in a topic: Lazy Loader   

     
    I have user(s) that use my forums with Javascript disabled.  (But I'm aware that IPB has limitation when Javascript is disabled.)
  8. ptprog added a post in a topic: Lazy Loader   

    It seems that if we disable Javascript, images are not loaded at all.
    Is there any way to change this behavior, so that images are all loaded (as if the mod was not installed) when Javascript is disabled?
  9. ptprog added a post in a topic: GeSHi drop-in replacement for Codeboxes   

    I would like to try it.
  10. ptprog added a post in a topic: Can Geshi be integrated with IPB?   

    MisterPhilip, have you successfully implemented GeSHi in 3.4?
  11. ptprog added a comment on a file: (Wolfie) Disable URL Truncating in posts   

    Thanks for this modification!
    It seems to be working perfectly (IPB 3.3.2).
