    Warning about post from years ago
    Hi. I havent posted in several years, though I have visited the site off and on since my last post. Today when I visited there was a large red warning box telling me that Ive been "warned by Lindy."
    The reason Im reporting this as a bug is because:
    1) This warning is from 2013 and as far as I know, Ive never seen this before and Ive been here, logged in, multiple times since 2013 so I assume that I should have seen this message in the past?!
    2) When you click on the 'view warning details' button, there is an error, "something went wrong".

    Automatically sort marketplace by members IPB version
    I sometimes find it hard to find skins or apps for my particular version of IPB in the marketplace, its often hard to tell just from the search page what version things will work with. I would like to suggest that as part of the client-side of the IPB system that we could 'register' the version of IPB (and add-on apps) that were using so that the marketplace would display only things that were compatible with the version your using.

    This will work even better when the 4.0 suite comes out and all the apps are on the same version number system.

    I just want to say one thing: PLEASE DONT PULL A VBULLETIN with the Suite 4.0 release. Make absolutely sure everything is done, make sure its all compatible with all its components and that it all works before you release it. I cant go through drama like that again.

    Its like any job, if the employee wants to cheat the system their going to find a way.

    But I think the sessions thing is a good way of automatically tracking it. There is going to have to be some manual clock-ins and outs though of course.

    Feature Suggestion: Time-Clock for Paid Moderators in Admin Panel
    I would like to make a suggestion for future versions:

    ADMIN OPTION --

    I would love to see a time-clock option in the admin pannel for moderators so people who have paid staff who get an hourly wage can be properly tracked for the time they spend working on the site. It would really make my life easier if there was a better way to know how many hours my moderators are spending online and how much work they are actually doing on the site.

    Thanks!!!

    that would be cool if this could replace or enhance the existing twitter features.

    Bugs aren't fixed. Apps arent supported. The marketplace is a joke. Straight up.

    Here is how the marketplace actually works: I make a crappy app, I charge $10 for it, you buy it, then I dont support it nor will I fix it and by the time anybody has noticed Ive already made a few grand. Repeat.

    Im so over it. A few bad apples have ruined it for the rest of you. Im sure some of you support your apps and are decent coders, but the majority suck and its really too bad. because it hurts IPBoards reputation when you dont support your products or update them.

    Marketplace App quality and support
    I have noticed that many of the apps I have purchased lately from the marketplace dont work as described. They are not kept up to date, are missing features and files and the support is lack luster at best, if you can even get anybody to reply. I have realized that it might cost more to do it yourself, but at least youll know its going to work. I will not be buying anything from the mafrketplace on this site ever again. Im done with bad coders and cheap products.

    Facebook Share (to page, not just personal timeline)
    In future versions can the Facebook share button at the bottom of post be set to allow posting to pages or your own timeline. Id like to post things to my page not my timeline.

  10. dogpatch added a post in a topic Gallery 5 Desperately Needs Better Gallery Management Tools   



    Wrong screen. If you click on the pencil to edit, the album owner is not listed in the next screen in the box that says 'album owner.'

    Gallery 5 Desperately Needs Better Gallery Management Tools
    Gallery 5 is nice on the front-end and a nightmare on the back end. You have absolutely no admin options on how to move photos around.

    Album Manager is a joke. You can barely manage the album, all you can really do is move it or change its permissions. You cant actually do anything with the photos in that album. If you try and delete the album and move the photos somewhere else that way, it just deletes the photos regardless of the options checked. On most galleries it doesn't even say who the album owner is.

    Category Manager is even worse. You cant actually manage any albums within any categories. Again, about all you can do is edit the name and change permissions. Its a total waste of time.

    You might as well not even have an admin section if you not going to be able to do any actual admin stuff beyond editing a galleries name or changing its category.

  12. dogpatch added a post in a topic Why is there no description for a category?   

    Yeah but people are dumb and sometimes cant even figure out all the obvious things youve mentioned.

    But also, what if you dont want to have forum descriptions for sub-forums in a category but would rather have a top level description describing all the forums found in that section? Than what do you do?

    Why is there no description for a category?
    Is there a reason why you cant put a description for a category? If you can describe a forum, why not be able to describe a category as well?

    I think it would be useful sometimes, especially if your using the category as a container for subforums to be able to put a description at the top as if it were a forum.
