    PHP Libraries in plugin not exported
    This plugin here (which you can download to replicate) produces an error due to a PHP library which I'm importing like so:
    \IPS\IPS::$PSR0Namespaces['MailChimp'] = \IPS\ROOT_PATH . '/plugins/ipsthemesMailchimp/MailChimp'; This works fine on my dev board but doesn't work on boards that have installed the XML file.
    Should this not work? It sounds like the Mailchimp folder is being stripped on export?

    For what it's worth, I ended up removing the font from my theme and now use an animated SVG instead.
    I'm assuming that icomoon font only contained the one loading icon?

  7. Tom Christian added a comment: [RC4/RC5] custom css only loaded from 1 out of 4 plugins   

    ​How can I apply this fix, Matt? If I edit the default includeCSS whilst in_dev is enabled, no changes take effect (In fact, changes to any template whilst in_dev do nothing...Is this correct?). 
  8. Tom Christian added a comment: RC6 - Invalid default value for 'event_start_date'   

    ​Will the DL package be updated with this or are you able to post the fix.

    Loading Spinner limitations
    I'm trying to change the loading spinner seen throughout the suite (opening dialogs, menus etc) but I can see that it's an icomoon font. The font itself, is stored outside of the theme system which is obviously not ideal for theme devs.
    Could this be stored within the theme along with the icomoon app file so that we can import the font into Icomoon and replace the necessary icon with our own? This will save me from having to either import an entirely new font just for one spinner icon OR re-code those sections to use a GIF / CSS.

    @Mark , is this fix included in 5a? Not working for me still.
  11. Tom Christian added a comment: [RC4/RC5] custom css only loaded from 1 out of 4 plugins   

    ​Perhaps the issue has always been present then. I started only my 2nd plugin that required CSS when RC5 was released which is why I noticed this.
  12. Tom Christian added a comment: [RC4/RC5] custom css only loaded from 1 out of 4 plugins   

    Does nobody else see this? @Adriano Faria   @Marcher Technologies   @Kevin Carwile  Any of you guys?
    This issue has completely stopped my plugin development since RC5.
  13. Tom Christian added a comment: [RC4/RC5] custom css only loaded from 1 out of 4 plugins   

    Still happening on a fresh install of RC5a. The most simple way I can explain for you guys to reproduce this:
    1. Create 2 blank plugins
    2. Create a css file in both plugins that style an element with a different color
    3. One of them or none of them apply on the front-end.

    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 :)

    2. 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.

    3. 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).

    4. Tom Christian

      Yes I have already minified the JS :)

  16. Tom Christian

    Does anyone here use "Dribble" ?

    1. Volstate
