  3. Get Ready For IPS 4.0!

    when i click the button to start from the read me it just takes me back to my forum index?    and with command line i get    Segmentation fault (core dumped)
  4. 4.0 - Profiles

     im not sure i understand
  5. 4.0 - Q&A Forums

    Rikki   you say there is a toggle for this setting however is this another bitwise setting on the forum like the best answer feature? I hope there will be interface to choose multiple forums in mass to toggle this and to the best answer feature, instead of editing forums one at a time.
  6. 4.0 - IP.Downloads Version Control

    if a version was removed ( corrupt / bad code / whatever ) its ghost should still remain (but not the file) and have a reason why (and when) it was removed - because if I got a notification that a news version was uploaded and i click the link in the email and find that the author made a quick turnaround to fix that prior one and pushed a new one.  -
  7. 4.0 - IP.Downloads Version Control

    it would be nice that the declared version number is prepended or injected in to the file name (before the .zip) so that when the user downloads the zip file that it is apparent.   Is the declared version number Appended to the File Name?   It would be nice to see a version number in the list of files and file date timestamp.
  8. 4.0 - Moderation Part 5: Warnings

    Excellent, can't wait ;)
  9. 4.0 - Messenger

        i know it only affects a small percentage of browsers -    but for instant notifications couldn't you add code to add push notification to the browser?
  10. 4.0 - Messenger

    can you create a new video showing the mobile responsive with iOS 7?
  11. 4.0 - Messenger

    I would really like to know if notifications by email from a message will allow you to respond by email and have it pipe back into the suite? I know nexus has something of this and there was some hook that provide that.   I seem to get half of conversations because the forums e-mails them the message but they reply in their email program and i end up getting it.
  12. 4.0 - Moderation Part 4: Effective Moderation

    Wolfie (13 years ago my form was ubb.threads old habits die hard ;)    )    my ultimate goal would be to choose a Saved Action - say "Approve & Move"  the only prompt I would see is "Select the Target forum".    I would choose it from the drop down, then hit submit.   Based on the settings in the "Saved Actions" it would have moved the "topic" added an automated notification as a new post by me. "This topic was moved." It would have unlocked, the topic.   If I executed this action from a "grid/list" style view I would remain where I was. If I executed it from the actual post I would remain in the post at it's new location, if i desired to make a new reply.
  13. 4.0 - Moderation Part 4: Effective Moderation

    Does the quick edit allow for changing of the Topic Title, Tags, Prefixes?   I am curious how a saved action (stored procedure) will allow for dynamic options at execution. For example I have a locked post (awaiting moderator approval) I want to APPROVE it and MOVE it to a forum dictated by the content of the thread. Currently I can't use multi-mod because it can only store a target forum.   I need it to be smart enough to Prompt you which forum you wish to move the thread to. Ask where you wish to end up stay where you are or the target forum. Ask if you wish to add the "we moved your thread" post to be automated post. Unlock the tread Apply any other options. (pin/feature)   Should I make this a "saved action" I don't want to store the actual target forum – but the process itself, and when used it will perform all the actions and only ask you where you wish to move the thread.     --   When I read the post at first I thought you were choosing the each of options you wish to perform, and then maybe you'd press a PERFORM button which would perform all the actions at once - in one operation -  but watching the video each acton looks to be a one trick pony using ajax for each action.   If I wanted to PIN, LOCK, and FEATURE a post have to make SIX clicks and wait for the action to happen between each operation.   These options are binary - ON or OFF why do you need to display a popup to show a dimmed version of the alternate state. Why not make the icons representative of that current choice ( shaded / outlined / colored / or alternate icon ) a toggle of it's current state.     If it was a single operation I could click PIN, LOCK, FEATURE and a PERFORM button - 4 clicks and they all happen on the thread once. 
  14. 4.0 - Global Sidebar

    There ya go in the latest IPS blog post (reordering) the toggle is down in the footer.   Perhaps here too the Manage Sidebar should be moved to the bottom footer area as a text link vs the > button to the left of the screen
  15. 4.0 - Global Sidebar

    Thats my point Andy, i am the one who would only have permission to edit then i am stuck seeing that button taking up space in the interface - it should be tucked up under a menu and not sitting there all the time.
