    ​Once you disable designers_mode it will write those files to the database and you will not be able to edit them unless editing through the ACP . Just re-enable designers_mode if you want to edit the actual files again.

    [Beta 6] Theme settings tab position
    When creating a new tab for the theme settings, it gets prepended before the final default tab 'Text Colors'. It should get appended to the end of this list.
    The ability to re-order these tabs in a future version would also be brilliant

    ​What error? Can I see the bug report?
    I've made fresh installs for every beta and it's been working fine for me. Did you upgrade between betas?
  4. Tom Christian added a post in a topic: Beta 6 worse than Beta 5   

    ​It's really not that confusing
    Edit HTML/CSS
    This is if you want to build your theme within the admin panel like in IPB3 .
    Designers Mode
    This is if you want to build your theme through your computers file system using a code editor / IDE.
    You can't use both methods simultaneously so if you want to edit within the admin cp (I don't know why anyone would want this unless it was a 2 second small code change) then you must have designers mode disabled.

    ​You shouldn't be editing anything inside the 'uploads' folder. Enable designers_mode and edit your theme inside the 'themes' folder.

    ​Why would you want them in a later version?
    As Mark already said, they'll mostly be in Beta 6.

    One word: awesome.

    ​The plugin system allows Javascript / jQuery to be written and packaged within the hook.

    ​Mark, when creating an invoice, is it possible for me to store some additional data? Before creating the invoice, my plugin sends the invoice data to Freshbooks which responds with an invoice_id. I need to store that ID so that any future invoice updates within Commerce can also be applied over to freshbooks.

    Setting Editor Redirect
    Whilst editing settings in a plugin, it's seriously tedious that after saving we're redirected back to the plugin list every time.
    I always open the settings page into a new window rather than inside a dialog/modal so perhaps if the settings page is not in a modal, it could just reload the same page?
    Maybe, this could also just be applied when in_dev is enabled?

    Out of interest, what did you implement to solve this issue?
    I was thinking a little more about it and specifying an order position when creating/editing a setting as well as drag & drop would be awesome (like in IPB3).

    For my home setup, I just finished building a 3.5ghz i5, 16gb ram, geforce 740, Dual 250gb SSD Hackintosh / Windows 10 machine which is running awesomely.

    For my day job, I bring in my Macbook Air every day and work from that.

    ​ This is the library I'm using. Should that work alright?
  14. Tom Christian added a post in a topic: Theme System - Missing Vital Functionality   

    ​You should submit a bug report regarding this then. This thread is focused on feedback .
  15. Tom Christian added a post in a topic: 4.0 Marketplace API Information   

    In fact, the example I gave in the live chat was almost identical to how Envato (ThemeForest) verify purchases. Eg: Which returns:
    {"verify-purchase":{ "item_id":"00000", "licence":"Regular Licence", "created_at":"Sat Dec 11 06:00:00 +1100 2010", "buyer":"JohnDoe", "item_name":"Wizard Pro" } } I don't see how this is possible with what we currently have unless I queried for every purchase of every single one of my files and looked for matching e-mail addresses / purchase codes.

    2. Breadfan

    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!

    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 :)
