    ​Latest version is 1.0.3. Ignore it here. Lot's and lot's of stuff broke when IPS upgraded the forums to IPS4
  2. Tom Christian added a bug in IPS4 Bug Tracker   

    Changing plugin directory name doesn't update hook path
    1. Edit existing plugin
    2. Change plugin directory name
    3. Manually copy /dev/ folder to new plugin directory (dev files aren't  copied due to existing bug)
    4. Edit hook
    5. Whoops file_get_contents error pointing to old DIR

    Custom form templates don't work for plugins
    \IPS\Output::i()->output = $form->customTemplate( array( \IPS\Theme::i()->getTemplate( 'system', 'core', 'front' ), 'test' ) ); This points to the /applications/ directory. What if I need to create a custom form template for a plugin?

    Plugin Export Missing Files
    I remember that this was being looked into a while back but I'm not sure if it was ever addressed or not so apologies if that's the case still.
    I exported a plugin on a Beta 3 install and installed it on Beta 4. The html/js/css & settings are all missing. The only thing that exported correctly was the hook.

    ​Does the plugin widget appear within the widget list by default like in an app? I can't get it to show.

    Couldn't get list of available blocks
    I've been switching between working with plugins/widgets as well as designer mode in IPS4 and something has gone wrong somewhere. When trying to load the widgets, I now get the following error:

    Console is reporting a missing file:

    To answer my own question:
    1. You can add widgets by creating a new app. I'm not sure if it's possible through just a plugin.
    2. You can add the following code to your template:
    {template="widgetContainer" group="global" app="core" params="'myCustomWidgetArea', 'horizontal'"}

    Issues with widget creation
    1. Create new app
    2. Add new widget
    Issue #1 - After selecting sidebar & pages app for the can ' Can be used in' option - the selected options do not save.
    Issue #2 - When adding the widget to the front-end all it returns is 'error'. Something a little more helpful would be nice here.

    1. Is there any documentation available on adding blocks / widgets?
    I see that it has to be within an app.
    2. Is it possible to create 'widgetized' area within a theme? I'd like add new sections other than the three existing on the forum home page.
    Worked it out.

    Look in the docs .
    {{$foo = array();}}

    Duplicate download tags
    After saving a download that has a lower case tag (such as 'suite') a duplicate entry will appear with the first letter in uppercase.

    The description should be a tooltip and only show when you hover the title. What's the URL to your site? You may have some Javascript conflicts that's breaking my own code.

    selling all my old 3.1.4 skins for virtually nothing -

    1. Tom Christian

      quick previews here:

    2. Breadfan

      You're ripping us off man!


    3. PSNation

      will these be updated to 3.2

    4. Tom Christian


    1. ørret

      Great :) Paid?

    2. Tom Christian

      not decided :p

    3. Angel Knight Phil

      You'd be my best friend if you released it for free, and not just because I'm broke xD

  11. Tom Christian

    is there a setting to enable the breadcrumb on the forum homepage ?

    1. Tom Christian

      (for 3.2)

    2. Stars25

      I sure hope there is!

    3. Rikki

      There's not a setting, but in the skin you can just remove the <if test="count( $items['navigation'] )"> that wraps the breadcrumb list - that'll mean it always shows.

  12. Tom Christian

    Just posted a shot on dribble: Any feedback is appreciated :)

    1. The Heff

      Looking good!

    2. PromoPoker

      Looks great! Lightbox is being very slow though.

    3. Tom Christian

      Thanks :) I need to reduce some of the full screen image sizes. Also going to sprite all the icons. Should help with the slowness.

    4. Stars25

      Not sure if you have already, but you can also compress your Javascript so the JS files are not as large (unless you put the JS in the head).

    5. Tom Christian

      Yes I have already minified the JS :)

  16. Tom Christian

    Does anyone here use "Dribble" ?

    1. Volstate

      I do sometimes...on my pillow :)
