    ​Yep, me too
  2. Tom Christian added a post in a topic: Theme updates (code changes)   

    ​That's irrelevant. 4.0 is readily available to the public which means we are already under huge pressure to release our themes. I receive several e-mails a day regarding this. In fact, I've had people that are angry with me that my themes aren't available yet (which of course is completely insane).
    Waiting for bugs to be fixed before worrying about the re-implementation of a completely missing key feature of the 3x series is not practical for me whatsoever. I'm not even sure how we've got this far without this feature being added back. I'm sure @ehren. even reminded IPS all the way back during the BETAs.
  3. Tom Christian added a comment: [RC] Designers mode sync causing GIT issues   

    ​Just a reminder in case this issue has been lost. Without the template difference report feature or version control working as it should, upgrading themes with lot's of modified templates is pretty much impossible.
  4. Tom Christian added a post in a topic: Theme updates (code changes)   

    I'm still working on RC7 due to this.
    It is possible to manually generate our own difference reports using version control. However, there's currently a horrible issue whereby enabling / disabling designers mode will change the date modified of every single file therefore rendering version control useless along with the ability to generate our own reports.
    @Charles - Is it possible to get some official confirmation on whether IPS intends on doing anything regarding this?

    [Pages] [4.0] Database theme selection issues
    I've created a custom database and added it to a page. The "Select which theme to use for this page. The theme is used for default widgets and the global template." option causes odd results.
    1. Option 1 "Default Theme": Works as intended whether my default theme is the IPS standard OR my custom theme.
    2. Option 2 "Default" (IPS standard theme): Fails to load any CSS / assets.

    3. Option 3 "Custom Theme" (my custom theme): Works as intended but all of my custom CSS and JS is not loaded.

    Ignored users design improvements
    The ignored users page could do with some touch-ups. I thought I broke some stuff in my theme but it's just the default layout.

    ​No, on this site.
  9. Tom Christian added a post in a topic: Comments on Reviews?   

    I couldn't agree more. I had a bad review on a product of mine from someone that is almost definitely experiencing issues with IPS4 and not my plugin. I have no way of replying and now my product appears broken to every single person that visits it and reads the reviews (which is most, I'm assuming).
  10. Tom Christian added a comment: Follow button tooltip issue   

    ​What was it, out of interest?
  11. Tom Christian added a bug in Bug Tracker   

    Follow button tooltip issue
    1. hover over follow content button and see the tooltip works fine
    2. click the button to follow/unfollow the content
    3. button will reload and display the unfollow/follow version.
    4. tooltips across the entire page don't work unless you refresh the page.

  12. Tom Christian added a post in a topic: Feature request - staff posts   

    Sounds like a cool plugin.
    - Do you have a live example?
    - Where would this button go?
    - What happens if there is no next staff reply?
  13. Tom Christian added a bug in Bug Tracker   

    Downloads: support info URL's not parsed
    Current Issue:
    URL's are not parsing in this custom field.
    Future Suggestion:
    Have a support button separate from these custom fields. If MP topics are being generated, have the button go there, if the user supplies their own support url, the button goes there. If neither, no button.

    4. PSNation

      will these be updated to 3.2

    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 :)
