  1. Lewis P added a comment CSS selectors   

    Running into this "issue" myself now yet again. A great plugin system getting held back by annoying little things like this.....
    I remember mentioning this on the preview site when I was trying to make the privacy policy work as a modal popup. You can't use :first-child, :nth-child etc because you don't know how many links are being shown (Theme/Language), so you're severely limited by what you can do. I believe it was Mark who said they'd look at adding more specific selectors.
    Even a simple data-something attribute on unique elements would help if they didn't want to add id attributes. On blocks, a seo-type key? On links and other strings, the language key? Who knows. Plenty of options. No doubt an annoying undertaking, but one that's necessary imo.
  2. Lewis P added a comment [4.0.3] Mobile view - wrong backspace behavior in editor   

    Yeah, I reported similar to this back on the preview site. Was marked as fixed even though it's still occurring today.
    CKE should really be disabled on mobile full stop. It's not ready.

  3. Lewis P added a post in a topic Custom profile fields have lost their key?   

    ​Seconded. I'd guess that new installs likely wouldn't have the problem since they'd have never experienced the key/vaue system before, but for upgrades...... eh.
    I've managed a workaround with our national flag system, but a key=value pair is invaluable for many implementations of things. Even if it was undocumented, bringing back the = would be fantastic.

    Sorry I'm late replying.
    Pip Popup is likely going to be upgraded, even though pips themselves have been all but removed in IPS4. In general, my intention is to upgrade all my hooks as the platform allows, as soon as possible after final release. I've already got some code ported over, but I'd like to get things tested on the final version of the suite before handing anything out.
  5. Lewis P added a post in a topic What type of computer is your daily driver?   

    Having now "fully" switched back from OSX that I started using in 2008, I've got a custom built Windows 8.1 desktop (21.5" screen - unfortunately the largest I could get onto my desk) and a Surface Pro 3 as my main devices. Also got a 2012 Retina MB Pro (with dodgy trackpad and charger) for any work that still requires a Mac...
    I can give my two cents. ​I've been using one for a couple of months (only bought my own last week, but that's another story) and it is a slight learning curve, what with the keyboard case, but it really is a fantastic device. I wouldn't want to do any proper serious long writing sessions on it (although I have written a 3000 essay on one), but it's more than suitable for the day-to-day stuff. The good thing is as well, you could just use a Bluetooth "normal" keyboard if you needed to as well.
    And FWIW, I have noticed that *most* of the PC World/Currys stores around here have one or two units on display, each with the type cover.

    I think its because attachments are missing right now. l will try to find it again, but no promises!
  7. Lewis P added a comment on a blog entry Get Ready For IPS 4.0!   

    Stupid question (as usual with me, really), but is the memory limit required to be 128MB, or is that again just the advised limit, with anything lower causing issues entirely our fault?
    I only ask because one of the sites I help out with has a host that won't raise this above 64MB for some reason (annoying, but things work fine unless installing a mega language pack), and wondering if I should be on the lookout for some other hosting for them?

    Can we still do manual template merge reports between versions?
  9. Lewis P added a comment on a blog entry 4.0 - Introducing the new AdminCP   

    Oooh, responsive admin panel! In fact, all of this looks really impressive. Especially liking the "flat" look.
    Oh, but it needs some pink.
  10. Lewis P added a post in a topic Hide from Sitemap   

    Yeah, that sounds logical enough to me!
  11. Lewis P added a topic in IP.Content   

    Hide from Sitemap
    Been doing a bit of cleanup on my site this week, and I've noticed in my sitemap files that there are some IP.Content pages listed that I have restricted only to administrators. Not a massive problem, no. But I try to have logical URLs, and if you knew my niche, you'd be able to figure out what was on the "hidden" page just by the URL.

    In short, can we get an option to hide pages from the sitemap generation, just like we have to "do not include" with forums?

    Woo! Anything that shortens my development time. :p

    I can already see it now: "Where are my image buttons? You're taking away my creativity!" :p
  14. Lewis P added a comment on a blog entry 4.0 - Javascript framework   

    I've got a problem - I've got to come up with clever ways to use all this. :p
  15. Lewis P added a post in a topic IPS Connect Feedback   

    If it is an issue though, they'll fix it. I mean, they use IPS Connect on these very forums to connect to the client area. Don't mean to state the obvious - but that clearly works.

    Anyway, I'm out. I just think calling the support useless isn't the best way to go about this.
