    ​No, on this site.
  3. 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).
  4. Tom Christian added a comment: Follow button tooltip issue   

    ​What was it, out of interest?
  5. 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.

    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?

    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.

    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?

  15. Tom Christian added a comment: Loading Spinner limitations   

    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?

    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 :)
