    I think on this note I think I agree. I allow moderators to have limited access to the ACP so they will likely see this notification as they are added via the "Administrators" under the core members app but they aren't necessarily administrators.
  2. Morrigan added a post in a topic Calendar event end time - revisited   

    Couldn't this be achieved (for your community) by changing the verbiage to "estimated end time" with a clear indication that it may go long or shorter? It's seems counter intuitive to define something that has a start time to not have an end time. 
    All standard calendar apps require that you put an end time. Unless you're more looking for a "reminder" like in the iPhone reminders app. But that's not technically an event or an appointment.
    i mean even in your example "eye doctors" appointments have an estimated end time. Normally thirty minutes. While they can go over you are still provided with a window....

    Are you talking about an all day event? (I'm mobile else this would be full screen) but no end time is already a thing. 

  4. Morrigan added a post in a topic Automated support response   

    While I understand your plight I also understand this from the IPS standpoint as well. While it may seem disrespectful to advanced administrators such as you or myself it is not redundant to help you it's redundant to assist with people that may not know these things exist and clicked through to create a ticket.
    Working in tech support myself, I know that redundancy is key. I have had to explain the same exact thing to 1 person in 15 different ways in the course of a twenty minute call because the "Have you done this" or "this is your problem" didn't make sense or get through to them the first time. Or things like "I can't access this one site so it must be my internet" is the answer to all questions instead of troubleshooting and determining it's an issue with the host/server.
    Not all administrators that submit tickets are like you or I and know to run all of the troubleshooting and make sure that things are done before we submit that ticket. I'm sure that they are inundated with people that didn't know to run the support tool or "forgot".
  5. Morrigan added a post in a topic can you seperate forum posts and content count   

    Per @Lindy this will be something in a future release as they are stored but currently they are all combined.

    Overlooked feature: Albums Only
    In gallery there used to be an option that required members to upload images to a personally made album only and I believe this one was forgotten.
    I have a few categories that I want only collections of images added to them via an album and allowing direct uploads sort of confuses people.
    Thank you.

  7. Morrigan added a post in a topic Why apps user different user panes and how to use forum style for all (or other) apps? The vertical has 0 info with mini avatar, the side has more info, can we enable this for all apps?   

    Then add it yourself?
    Making yourself a custom hovercard or a customer template makes your forum unique and it will also include the information that you want. It's not practical to have all of that information all over the site. It becomes a mess of clutter and whatnot when you can easily just go to the profile.
    Yeah the hovercard takes a second to load but you add all of that data, all of those pictures, all of those calls to the page you're adding that load into the initial load of the page.
    To add insult to injury I normally don't see long comments, I see long posts. If this information was the same across the board you are now adding white space that is unnecessary because you want "extra stuff" just to sit there and take up space.
    The only way I would honestly support this is if you could come up with a practical way to do it without causing undo-terrible looking comments because "there isn't enough stuffs there".

    Then ask for that to be there? I mean a "scaled down version" the scaled down version is in the hovercard. I don't understand why you need such redundancy with information? It seems a moot point.
    I would personally prefer that usernames were formatted everywhere over showing the user group everywhere. But guess what? There's a mod for that.

    I think that this is relatively easy to gain by making your own templates and not to shove it down everyone else's throat because it's good for "you". Adding an option such as this just adds to server resources because it has more information to call.
    I also don't believe it's as simple as a "light switch" like toggling as you seem to imagine. That would require an entirely different template to be made specific for comments (on top of the one already there) and I think that would likely potentially botch other templates which would be a mess.
    My recommendation, if you need it then why don't you adjust your own "Comment" template?

    While I'm neither for or against improving the mini profile for comments I am completely, totally and utterly against using the author pane from forums anywhere but for forums. Just closing my eyes and imagining it I would totally rage quit a site that had that look everywhere. It would be overwhelming and redundant.
    I like that the information is in a hovercard.

    Woo! Improvements in August! Best birthday gifts ever. Keep up the great work everyone!

    To speed up the background processes you can manually run them but it's intense on your server and it can lengthen you downtime because you will have to wait until all of the background processes are complete before you can do other things. I have a smaller community so I was able to do this and it worked out fine.
    Under fixable issues:
    Birthdays is a widget and you can add it using the sidebar editor. There is a bug with caching at the moment but you do not need something extra. I currently have the birthdays widget on the front page of my site at the bottom.Recent images is also a widget. It doesn't have the same slider that it did before but this may come with future versions.For the notify of replies you need to check the setting in your settings. Check your notifications settings.Just the way it is:
    Same as with the above widgets just add the online users widget. 
    That's from looking over the stuff. To get to the sidebar editor just click the arrow on the left side of the screen on your test board.

    Default statistics date range
    It would be awesome if the statistics had a default range of like the last 12 months or maybe just this year (so starting January to date).
    Currently the functionality gives you all of the data from the start of your community which is awesome to see but not particularly useful in it's default use.

  14. Morrigan added a post in a topic Is there an ETA on when replying to statuses in widget will be implemented?   

    Okay, I have no issues with you wanting it @craigf136 that's your prerogative. It is my prerogative to keep the functionality that my members enjoy. I'm in no way deterring that. I'm asking that I be able to opt out of this because it's not a necessary feature.
  15. Morrigan added a post in a topic Is there an ETA on when replying to statuses in widget will be implemented?   

    Eep. No I mean if it won't be formatted I don't want my members to be able to reply from the index. That's all I mean. My members are pretty settled on the "click and reply" method so if it sacks formatting I don't want it. 
     
    Thats all all I mean @Lindy
