We have a set list of countries.. What looks to be the US, Canada and Portugal(?) that have their states hard coded in..
Since state is a required field and can't be hidden if shipping/tax is involved.. And, most countries do have states/provinces/whatever they call them.. Having that hard coded into a file seems.. restrictive.
Would it be possible for that class, the list of states, to be somewhat more user editable?
My idea.. Put a file like states.php in the /extensions directory.. If it's there.. Then the info in it is used.. if not, then we use the defaults in the file. That way, we could include a states.dist.php file with an example setup, people could rename it, add their country in and the states/provinces?
It was mentioned that a hook might be able to accomplish this, but.. Seems this method might be easier?
I brought this up not an hour before on changes that should be made to the ACP.
Any ideas? Only one I could come up with was having a specific section for local moderators and controlling them rather than piggybacking them on the forums. It is... Clunky. But I didn't really have any suggestions on where to go with it.
Well, this is more once users get through.. Which, is going to happen. I don't care what or how many blocks you have.. If you allow registrations, spam will get through at least from time to time.. There is no foolproof way to do it.. There's only mitigation.
Turning off registration will pretty much stop it. But, an account could be hijacked and it get through that way..
If you trust a mod to be a mod.. My opinion is that you should trust them to block spammers anywhere on the site. And, if they abuse the power, then they probably shouldn't be mods in the first place.
I get a fair number of tickets about this.. When local mods have permission to report spammers, flag as, I mean.. The only get the little 'flag as spammer' icon in the mini profile.
When it comes to spam.. Even with local mods.. If they have permission to flag.. Shouldn't they be able to do it globally? I mean, if I'm mod of forum A, and I see an obvious spam post in Forum B...
I don't know.. WE might get tickets if it works the other way.. Might be best as is.. But, I'd think if you want someone to be able to flag as spammer, they could flag them, whether they've posted in the forum you're a mod of or not..
Gone. Search bug reports that I started, I asked about this INSIDE one legit report... There's several things removed.. Being able to upload 10 images in a go kinda replaces the ZIP.. But, I think the bulk import from ACP will be returning.
Someone set this up on their site, and.. It was such a good idea, I thought, I should mention it here.
When you click on "Store", you have the featured item in the middle, and your categories on the left, cart on the right.
What if you don't want a featured item, you just want a "Welcome" message to display when they click on the store?
This user actually created a 'free' item, set it as featured, so that they could have a welcome message show. Just seems like it'd look better if we could give the option where they could code in a welcome message, and it would look in the same style as the featured entry..
