    Same for tablets? I have a rooted Samsung I could give a whirl if you post a link.

    Improved New Version Announcement v1.0.0
    Quick and dirty improvement of the default IPS new version announcement that gets parked in the ACP dashboard. This is just something to tie us over until IPS reconfigures the new version announcement so as to not be full text all-the-time. I recommend a tightly-formatted auto-added side widget but that's just me...
    Smaller text but capitalized throughout. IPS logo in front. The most recent new version available is now indicated.Click anywhere on that text to display the full text announcement. If you have skipped a version or two those announcements are displayed as well. Click anywhere in the announcement text to hide again.

  3. Flitterkill added a comment [] Download theme with plugin installed pulls plugin resourcecs   

    Skip the next bug report. Once the resources are mixed up it will break any affected plugins. You can delete the plugin but attempting to reinstall will only partially load the plugin until it gives a "you don't have permission to do that" red error bar.
    I've replicated the above on a new install to confirm. 
    Strongly suspect it is designers mode mixing things up but have not confirmed by just uploading a theme and plugin and then downloading a theme without flipping designers on/off.
    Note the possibility this could be affecting more than plugins, i.e. no plugins installed but more than one theme installed and then after designers mode on/off downloading a theme pulls in resources from other themes breaking those themes and so on.

    Fresh install of
    Installed Spacious ACP.  All good.
    Installed SuperScroll. All good.
    Designers Mode On
    One alteration to Spacious ACP css.
    Designers Mode Off
    Export Spacious ACP to XML
    FIle size is double the usual.
    Inspect XML and see that it has pulled in SuperScroll resources by mistake.
    Once there are there they have to be manually pulled out.

  5. Flitterkill added a comment [4.0.9] custom.css does not affect the AdminCP anymore   

    This has become a giant un-announced pain in the ass @Matt, @bfarber, @Lindy 
    Short version is getting a css file to load last and be respected without getting messed with or template variables wrecked is really annoying now when targeting the admin side. Doubly so when I wasn't expecting to have to re-write Spacious on negative notice (plus the hours I wasted yesterday trying to figure out what the hell was going on only to find out today it's "by design". BTW - I have a bug report or two you need to close on this...)  
    Regardless, after spending too much time on this I gave up and am just if-else'ing the problem away around the "fix" for Spacious ACP. For the future though how about this?
    {{if \IPS\Dispatcher::i()->controllerLocation === 'front'}} {{$customCss = \IPS\Theme::i()->css( 'custom.css', 'core', 'front' );}} {{foreach $customCss as $css}} <link rel='stylesheet' href='{expression="\IPS\Http\Url::external( $css )->setQueryString( 'v', \IPS\SUITE_UNIQUE_KEY )"}' media='all'> {{endforeach}} {{elseif \IPS\Dispatcher::i()->controllerLocation === 'admin'}} {{$customCss = \IPS\Theme::i()->css( 'customACP.css', 'core', 'admin' );}} {{foreach $customCss as $css}} <link rel='stylesheet' href='{expression="\IPS\Http\Url::external( $css )->setQueryString( 'v', \IPS\SUITE_UNIQUE_KEY )"}' media='all'> {{endforeach}} {{endif}}Toss us this bone, make hitting the ACP CSS that much easier. Please? Or maybe let us register our own css files to load last? There seems to be more to it than just dropping a css call as the last in the chain as stuff still get over-ridden.
    And maybe give people a heads up before making a change of this scope?

    You can make a copy of a theme easily enough. Then rename it, and assign it as available to only ADministrators. Then choose it from the drop down (your name in the ACP).
    As for changing the actual CSS you can hack at the individual files themselves if you want or just create another CSS file. Open up designers mode to get the directories built out and then manually (file explorer in whatever your operating system is) drop in whateveryouwant.css in the theme directory. I'm using css/admin/core. When you turn off designers mode that file will get built in.   I guess you have to use the resource system. The above works fine local but once you build out and then export/import it's no dice.
    I'm more annoyed that this happened without any warning. No great shakes but a heads up would have been nice rather than spending my time chasing shadows.

    Change the Number of Rows Displayed v1.0.0
    Do you hate the number 25?
    Do you hate even more that you can't change the number of forum topics displayed when viewing a forum?
    Well here you go!
    This plugin has two options. It will let you change the number of forum topics displayed when viewing a forum and it will let you set the number of files displayed when viewing an IPS.Downloads category listing. 
    If there are other apps you would like to see hooked onto besides Forums and Downloads let me know. Those two seemed the most in need of this setting.
    Feel free to toss some stars on this!


    The default set by IPS is 25. I've tested plenty of times less than 25. Not so much more than 25. This is just a warning that setting this to some insanely high number might (???) break things what with the Ajax loading who knows what else is going on. If someone wants to give this a run with 50 per page or some such number I'd love a note back so I can confirm how high we can go before (if) anything breaks.
    When table data is grabbed and is destined to be displayed as table/tabular data such as when you are viewing the list of topics in a forum or the files available in a downloads category, a single method is called to handle this for the entire suite minus an exception or two (I know the Pages application seems to use something else as a setting exists there to handle this). This means no matter the section in the suite, if some table data is being grabbed and displayed in a row-like fashion, it hits this method and the rows-per-page variable is hard coded at 25. I fully expect IPS to add specific app settings for this back in eventually but for now you can use this. I would just let you set the number once but this method touches a lot of places, even in the ACP, so I felt it best to just lock it down on an app to app basis.

  9. Flitterkill added a comment [4.0.9] Theme Import - CSS totally ignored?   

    Also should note the skin was already installed prior to upgrade. Post-upgrade the CSS wasn't being displayed so I then uninstalled and reinstalled the skin and discovered it might not be the upgrade process that borked it.

    [4.0.9] Theme Import - CSS totally ignored?
    Language file import is fixed! Love it! I can change my user title here now However...
    Upgraded a install to 4.0.9. 
    Installed Spacious ACP 3.0 (built out with
    As stated, all the language stuff is there, all the template stuff is there including custom setting vars.
    The CSS file, when inspecting in designers mode is there. All the changes I just leave in custom.css for this skin.
    Nothing in custom.css is being read however; it's like it doesn't exist. I've flipped designers on and off, hit the support cache rebuilt a couple times. Nothing.
    The skin is correctly chosen in the drop down and it is being applied. I can see the custom template changes clearly, but all CSS changes are missing. Bit of a show stopper so I'll throw in an @Mark to maybe get this pinned/fixed.
    I'll do some replication with other dev installs once I get them over to 4.0.9

  11. Flitterkill added a bug in Bug Tracker   

    [] Downloads - Unable to unset or change prefix when editing file description without adding or deleting tags.
    As stated. The tags box exists when editing a file description but the choose a prefix dropdown doesn't appear until/unless you delete an existing tag or create a new one. 
    Create a file, add three tags, set the second one as a prefix. Save.
    Now edit the file description. All three tags appear in the tag box. The formerly second one is now first in line, but remains the same color as the other tags. There is no choose a prefix box. If you kill any of the tags or add another one the choose a prefix box appears.
    When editing, it is not initially clear which tag is the prefix. You can assume (correctly) that it is the first in the list but having the prefix correctly color-coded would be better. If the choose a prefix box fires upon editing the file instead of messing with the tags you could see which was designated as prefix without needing to have the prefix color coded in the tag box.
    Regardless of knowing which tag (if any) are set as the prefix, unless you delete or add a tag you can't choose one of the pre-existing tags as the new prefix.

  12. Flitterkill added a comment [] Downloads - Screenshot doesn't parse on view if name has parentheses   

    Ran this through to confirm:
    And then removed the parenthesis after the dollar sign and everything then worked.
    To be specific, this bug is no screenshot preview image in both the specific file view AND in category list view (if the screenshot is the primary screenshot). Missed that in the initial submission.

    This will upload as a screenshot and be displayed in the upload form just fine. Upon submission and then when viewing the file submission it isn't shown - only a whitish square where the actual image should be. When you click this "blank" image the lightbox does fire and brings up the screenshot correctly.

    Alter the name to remove the parentheses section and everything works fine including in file view.
    I guess it's the parentheses that's breaking the parse in the view template (or whatever sub-code is called to fire it)
