  1. Ryan H. added a post in a topic: After Upgrade - Any clue what's happened?   

    URLs aren't correct. It's trying to load all resources (CSS, JS) from your old (real) site. I ran into the same thing.
    How to fix it? Not a clue. I'd like to know.
  2. Ryan H. added a post in a topic: IP4 application development tutorials   

    No, you're not missing anything. More is on the way. If you need to start anyway, though, enable developer mode, then go to applications, create your app, then options > developer center.
  3. Ryan H. added a post in a topic: Commerce Plugin - Integrating 3rd-Party Class Wrapper   

    There's a brief section on libraries at the bottom of the autoloader doc: http://community.invisionpower.com/4docs/advanced-usage/development/the-autoloader-r75/
  4. Ryan H. added a post in a topic: REALLY need the rebuild button back   

    This is far from a clean interface, but a tip: You can go to Advanced Config, then at the end of one of the descriptions there's a link 'View all tasks'. On that page is a list of tasks and a manual 'run' button. The generic 'Queue' task is what triggers the rebuilds. You can click that repeatedly to help the rebuild along.
    Alternatively, what interval is your cron running on? The queue task will run as fast as once a minute, I think.

    [Beta 5a] Can't export application with hook
    I have a custom application. It includes one code hook on \IPS\Output.
    Without the hook, the app builds and downloads fine. With the hook, after build and download, attempting to open the archive gives me 'Cannot open file ... as an archive.' Installing gives 1C133/K. Corrupt tar. I attached hook.json and the hook itself. I can provide the full app folder privately if needed.

  6. Ryan H. added a post in a topic: New design is too much white space...   

    When properly applied, whitespace is a highly effective design element.
    To me, the Xenforo page you linked looks cluttered at best.
  7. Ryan H. added a post in a topic: Lack of navigation, breadcrumbs is unsettling   

    ​Yeah. Smartphones already handle this cleanly. Unless you tell them otherwise, they'll render everything as if it were ~320px wide (varies slightly). If they displayed everything at physical resolution and desktop DPIs, phones would be unusable. The physical pixels are used for subpixel rendering and making everything really crisp.
    If it were my call I'd put another responsive breakpoint at 480px so phones can render more detail in landscape vs. portrait mode--but all in all, I think it collapses quite well.
  8. Ryan H. added a post in a topic: Would be nice for us skinners   

    That would be an inline CSS style. As I understand it, their style guide for 4.0 prohibits inline styles. If you don't want that class in your skin, you'll either need to override it for that element or skin it out.
    The one item is read (hence ipsItemStatus_read), while the other two are not. That in itself lets you style unread and read items differently. I can't speak to why there's no indicator for redirects, if that's true.
  9. Ryan H. added a comment on a file: Advanced Tags & Prefixes   

    nook86: Probably never. I would have to make some fairly extensive changes for it to be possible.

    Ryan - how about a mass association. For example, let's say I want to get rid of a forum and prefix every topic. So to get rid of mymovies forum i create a mymovies prefix and want to select all and assign a prefix? The problem I'm having is that it seems that prefixes must be created individually and there isn't any import mechanism to mass assign posts to a prefix. Not to take away anything from this essential modificaition. :smile:

    There are two ways of doing this within the application, actually. One is to create a topic multi-mod that sets the desired prefix, then check the topics you want and apply it. The second is to use the 'Mass-add tags/prefixes' tool in the admin panel to search for topics (by forum, keyword, or both) and add a prefix to all results.
  11. Ryan H. added a comment on a file: Advanced Tags & Prefixes   


    You could certainly set up similar functionality with topic prefixes by creating a prefix for each image. There is nothing to convert those icons or the topics they're associated with, though.
  12. Ryan H. added a comment on a file: Advanced Tags & Prefixes   

    fly1: You have a couple options. You can move it to a forum with prefixes temporarily to remove it through the 'edit topic title' screen. Or, you can create a topic multimod that removes any prefix, and apply that to the topic.

    EROAN: IP.Board 3.3 is indeed supported. There are a couple minor compatibility bugs, but I'll be releasing an update to fix them within several days.
  13. Ryan H. added a comment on a file: Advanced Tags & Prefixes   

    No, that's not currently a feature of the application. You can choose any number of tags per topic, but only one prefix.
  14. Ryan H. added a file in Security   

    Image Whitelist v1.0.0
    This hook adds a separate whitelist and extra settings specifically for the bbcode. The whitelist allows you to pick and choose which image hosts and domains you want to allow images to be posted from.

    Use this to enhance security, prevent bad content or spam, or simply to ensure quality for your users.

    Blocked images can be replaced by: [*]A link to the image [with or without 'blocked' text] [*]A short message [*]A default image of your choosing

  15. Ryan H. added a comment on a file: Advanced Tags & Prefixes   

    As answered in the support/discussion topic: You can't have both predefined and open tags in a single forum, but you can let users choose a predefined prefix and enter tags at will. That is probably your best option. Yes, prefixes are included in the tag cloud.

    clear your PM's dude! :)

  2. Roogle » Ryan H.

    Having a weird issue with Easy Pages, I posted in your support topic for when you get a chance ;)

  3. Rainbow Dash » Ryan H.

    Hi! Are you planing to release Thoreau and Thoreau Dark for 3.2? :)

    1. Ryan H.

      When I get the chance. At this point I'm waiting on 3.2.1.

  4. Ryan H.

    I like when I can look at something I did a year ago and be impressed. I wish it happened more often.

    1. Amy T

      The wording of that makes it sound like you are saying you are getting worse at what ever you did a year ago. Basically like saying you were better a year ago then you are now. However I do not think that is what you mean.

    2. Ryan H.

      Quite the opposite. I often look at what I did in years past and find it to be naive or poorly done. Very rarely impressive. There was one technique I'd used and forgotten about, though, which I quite like.

    3. Mikey B

      A year later, how do you feel when looking back at this status? ;)

    4. Ryan H.

      Still pretty impressed by what I was referring to. It was brilliant, man. ;)

    5. Ryan H.

      In all seriousness, though, I've found that my coding style isn't evolving nearly as much as it used to. I'm not sure if that means I've matured as a developer, or that I'm stubbornly set in my ways now.

    6. Mikey B

      Probably a bit of both :)

  5. Ryan H.

    New to apps... is there any way to run a script on install in the manner of version_upgrade.php?

  6. Ryan H.

    Trying to decipher the new tags implementation... fun fun.

  7. Ryan H.

    Topic Prefixes 1.1.3 is up with a couple fixes and additions, for anyone who's interested.

    1. ørret


    2. Ryan H.

      They're listen on the download page.

      - Added the ability to display prefixes like subforums below a forum's description [along with a per-forum setting]
      - Fixed prefixes to be sorted alphabetically throughout the plugin

    I don't see how anyone can stand programming in vi.

    1. dogpatch

      how does anybody even use vi to begin with?

    2. AlexJ

      vi is editor.

    3. Ryan H.

      I mean, I guess it's something you get used to, but there are just SO MANY quirks and things that don't work the way they should. Give me my Visual Studio, or, hell, Notepad2 for that matter.

    4. Ryan H.

      It has some nice features, and is apparently incredibly extensible, but it seems to me anyone who considers it the end-all of editors is incredibly disillusioned.

    5. Planetby

      Find Designer7 nice and easy to use, even highlights my many F*** ups lol

    6. Ryan H.

      Linux and C... but thanks. :P

    7. Connor T

      Doesn't VI stand for VImproved? I wonder how the first one was :o

    8. Ryan H.

      That's VIM., and it's hardly better.

    9. Matt Campbell

      Neckbeard material there. TextMate is what I use.

  9. Ryan H.

    Headed back to school tomorrow... don't expect too much of me this week.

    1. media

      Well, Good luck... :)

    2. Herofiles ★

      School.. ooh..im glad im DONE with school :p

    3. ørret

      I'm so glad I only have 2.5 years left to my masters degree LUL :P sucks big time.

  10. Ryan H.

    Running through a crash course on Win32 programming... woo.

    1. Ryan H.

      I can do GUIs now. I am no longer slave to the console.


    2. TheRevTastic


    3. Planetby

      Congrats Ryan :)

    4. .Peter

      what language?

    5. Ryan H.

      The guide I'm using is in C... I need to find one in C++; there are a few things that don't seem to work in both.

  11. Ryan H.

    A quarter of my project ended up being bugs and half of it was untouchable [private], so I guess that one's on hold until 3.2.

  12. Ryan H.

    It would be awful nice if there were a way to add a single user setting beside creating an entire application...

    1. mat206

      What would the setting do? Hooks were made for this purpose btw. =) You don't have to create entire apps just for some type of extension.

    2. Ryan H.

      I would be using a hook if I could, believe me. It's simply not possible to add a setting to the User CP area using a hook.

  13. Ryan H.

    30% off all my resources until Christmas, including Topic Prefixes! http://bit.ly/eohoIc

  14. Ryan H.

    People who use Topic Prefixes--what neat things have you done? I'm looking for a showcase.

  15. Glumbo » Ryan H.

    You have quite a successful product on the IPS marketplace

  16. Ryan H.

    Put together a list of hook points I need, but I think at this point I might as well just wait until Monday...

  17. Glumbo » Ryan H.

    Don't worry about it then. Thanks anyways :)

  18. Ryan H. » Glumbo

    I wasn't aware anyone even used the skin, to be honest. It's a damn hard skin to update because of how much it was changed from the default skin. The dates are easy enough to fix, but if you want anything new from 3.0-3.1, well.
    Either way, I'm frightfully busy with classes right now; don't really have time at the moment.

  19. Glumbo » Ryan H.

    Could you update Minima please :)

  20. Ryan H.

    Settled into the new dorm... now if only our ethernet ports worked.

  21. Ryan H.

    My revamped site is live! I think everything is finally finished and working.

    1. Ryan H.


    2. .Peter

      That's slick. Very impressive.

    3. Zhana

      Wow that's a big change bro. BTW site seems to be a bit slow.

    4. Ryan H.

      What exactly is slow? Everything seems to load <2 sec for me.

    5. Fishfish0001

      It is a bit slow for me 3-5 seconds, wasn't normally that slow. Also the dropdown changes to black when on the products page instead of white Not sure if thats intended.

  22. Ryan H.

    I am really, really bad at the whole design thing.

    1. Fishfish0001

      You'll get the hang of it :)

    2. Ryan H.

      No, I don't think I will. I'm great at skinning; give me something to do, and I'll figure out how to do it. But I can't do anything remotely good trying to come up with it myself.

    3. Fishfish0001

      Oh gotcha. I have the same problem... :| But I can find good colors that go together, just not make them look good : (Try http://www.0to255.com if you need color matches and stuff)
