    This is in a completely different league to 1.x 2.x and 3.x
  2. AcneOrg added a post in a topic: Blog SEO problem   

    Clicking archives didn't work, it led to /blogs/?section=archive&blogid=7123

    I found that upgrading the blogs fixed the issue, great.

    However, /blogs/?section=archive&blogid=7123 still exists as a completely duplicate page of the blog, there are thousands of them.

    How do I fix it?

    Considering this was an IPB bug, the fix should have included a solution for handling these duplicate URL's, it seems nobody cares about the implications of these things.

    Ideally, this will either 301 redirect to the users blog page, be a canonical of the users blog page OR simply return a 404. WORST case, a noindex, follow?
  3. AcneOrg added a post in a topic: No default member group?   

    I cannot find where to set the default member group. At the moment, it's "Members" but I want it to be "New Members" so that we can follow the guidelines here: '?do=embed' frameborder='0' data-embedContent>>

    I can find a setting for default group for Twitter and Facebook signups but not the regular signups. Where can I find this? I've looked through the entire ACP a few times. I have a feeling it doesn't exist, at least not in my install!

    It appears they're coming from Twitter. When trying to signup via Twitter I got the following when redirected to the board:

    Sorry, you don't have permission for that! [#1090094] An error occurred while trying to authorize this Twitter connection

    We have many records in the log each day for unsuccessful registrations. Accounts that have no display name and a weird @12345 email address. I can only guess they're coming from Twitter or Facebook? This person had attempted 9 times, all unsuccessfully. 211791 @1372278995 | ipb 0 26 June 211790 @1372278947 | ipb 0 26 June 211789 @1372278925143.215.17.201 | ipb 0 26 June 211788 @1372278917 | ipb 0 26 June 211787 @1372278894 | ipb 0 26 June 211786 @1372278870 | ipb 0 26 June 211785 @1372278842 | ipb 0 26 June 211784 @1372278821143.215.17.201 | ipb 0 26 June 211783 @1372278809 | ipb 0 26 June And this person twice, before creating an account the usual way. 211763 hoos**** keri.***** | ipb 1 26 June 211762 @1372255332 | ipb 0 26 June 211761 @137225529375.75.16.53 | ipb 0 26 June Any idea what the issue might be or what scenario this may happen? I've tried signing up with Facebook and it works fine. I'm wondering if people are getting confused that once they've gone through the Facebook connect process they are then asked to either create a new account or connect to an existing one. As they've just connected via FB they may well be thinking HUH?! Either way the UI at this stage is rather lacking. Thanks
  6. AcneOrg added a post in a topic: Multi-moderation of gallery albums   

    I'm in the process of reorganising our gallery, we have 4,000+ albums that need to be organised. When I search the forums I have the ability to mass moderate the results, but I don't have the same option in the gallery.

    Is there a mod or anything else available that provides multi-moderation for the gallery?

    The biggest selling point of this hook, is that it provides fully functioning profiles, something the IP.Board mobile skin doesn't offer. 
    Great job!
  8. AcneOrg added a post in a topic: IP.Gallery usability flaws   

    Facebook A/B test a lot and despite users complaining every time something changes, Facebook is very user friendly and logical.

    If I were in charge of remodelling the gallery app, I'd certainly be looking at Facebook.
  9. AcneOrg added a post in a topic: IP.Gallery usability flaws   

    Hi guys, we have a rather large gallery that over the years has become a little messy. I've been working on cleaning it up and in the process found what I consider to be some usability issues.

    The biggest issue is with private/public folders.

    On the folder creation screen, there is a radio button that specifies " Public album: Checking this box will allow other users to view your album ."

    However, it's not possible to uncheck it. I then realised, there is only a single category that allows members to create private folders. Though it's not clear to the user at this point in the process, that the members category offers private folder functionality.

    Even if the user selects the special category, the Public album radio button is still not functional, it still cannot be turned off. So the only way a member can then make a folder private is to edit it. This is assuming they've even figured out private folders are even possible.

    The topic of our website is acne, and so many users like to keep their pictures private or between their friends. This has resulted in literally everything being dumped in to that one folder. So whether its pictures of scars, acne, progress logs, it's all dumped in that one category because it offers privacy options.

    The obvious and logical way for this to work, would be for the user to be able to select the privacy level of the folder upon creation, regardless of the category they want to upload to.

    There are many more usability problems aside from this, but I'd like to focus on a single problem for now.

  10. AcneOrg added a post in a topic: Follow this topic checked by default   

    If I create a topic, it's pretty much a given that I'd like to be notified of replies. But I always forget to check the "follow this topic".

    Is there a hook, mod or setting that can have this auto checked by default?
