  1. chilihead added a post in a topic Suggestion: Can edit window time and lock status please lock attachment? Thanks   

    Yeah, being able to remove content from the backend of something locked seems more like a loophole or bug, though I know it's not a bug. But I'd really love if that loophole was sealed up.
    It also helps us maintain the integrity of posts. I've had members mass delete for space and then wonder why their posts have missing images. It can even serve as an upgrade incentive when they need room.
    Of course if anyone disagrees, it could be an admin setting.

    Suggestion: Can edit window time and lock status please lock attachment? Thanks
    If a content item is locked for editing (or item is locked), do not allow that attachment to be removed. Please show an error in attachment management that the content item is locked and it cannot be removed.
    When an item is locked nothing should be able to be edited or removed and that includes attachments.
    Or at least a setting for admins, that would be great. Thank you.

    I wish this could be addressed. There's constant flooding with album uploads on image heavy sites, for pages and pages in NC. Even on this site where people barely use it. Why can't it say:
     
    John has uploaded 108 images to Album 3.
    (Show a few mini-thumbs)

    True they are quick relies, but in 4 the editor was upgraded to the full. Directly from the member page you can post and reply with full, so from the widget, it's more of a continuity thing. Members will be used to the full features. Smaller of course, which is why I suggested the mobile editor. And "Insert media" seems important to me here, think how status updates are used on social media. Memes, images, etc. Bold, italic, and underline are way less important if space is an issue in the widget reply box. Parsing of links, mentions, emoticons, and a media upload, a lot more important.

    What would be nice is when you are typing it and it is at the top hit Enter and it activates. No clicking needed.
    Also would be nice if they parsed if you typed it and the box was too slow. 
    Maybe it can bring up your most tagged members and members in the topic you are in for speed as it looks for the rest. As you keep typing it narrows so speeds up and gets it, if not familiar.

    Weird, that pic (image error above) was there yesterday. I even checked back and it was there. Some bug in IPS, I had removed an image and added a new one, and it saved fine. Then I went to post a new topic and the image was in it. Weird! So I clicked edit and removed it. I see today removing it from the other post removed it from here. How it was posted to another topic no idea.
    Well here is the mobile editor, notifications field removed. That would work perfectly in status widget replies imo.

    Not possible in 4.

    @Lindy Wait, I've got it! Use the mobile editor. It's a simple box until clicked into and then has very limited toolbar options but everything parses per usual.
    How obstructive is that? And to boot, the programming is done on the actual editor. Remove notifications option making it even smaller, match width to widget.

    LOL.
    On emoticons I wouldn't need to see the list of them, just to have them parse if using the code would be ideal, especially since they work from the member page directly. Seeing a wink code looks like a bug, especially since they can be viewed directly from the member page where they work if posted from there. Continuity, really.
    A paperclip to allow attachments/images from URL there too would be nice since a lot of people like to reply with an image or meme these days!
    Yes I see what you mean about piling on options this and that.  
    Excellent. Thanks

    Oops one more thing; mentions!
    So if replying in the widget is just a text box I would like to see:
    hyperlinks workemoticons workmentions workI believe that is all for now lol.
    Thanks

    Thanks @Lindy if I could make one request it would be, if just a text field, at least make links turn to hyperlinks please.  The way replies work in 3.4 is fine, but members often ask questions and the person posts a link that is text only and then they ask why it didn't link. Cutting and pasting is annoying. If that could be a hyperlink it would be a great leap ahead imo.
    Thanks for the reply as well.
    PS. Oh and emoticons should parse imo.
    The two annoyances from the 3.4 reply box.

    Is it possible to get official word on this? Thanks!

  14. chilihead added a post in a topic Why aren't comments enabled for Downloads here? No way to comment if no topic was made.   

    Don't need support at this point, just a question. So if I had a question for that author I should PM him I guess. Okay thanks.
    I think IPS has them off globally though, not an author choice. I've never seen comments used here. The comments tab next to reviews. One could ask pre-download questions and also add suggestions if that was enabled.

    Why aren't comments enabled for Downloads here? No way to comment if no topic was made.
    Just curious, why are reviews, but not comments enabled on downloads here? If no topic was created, there is no place to comment on the file with a question or issue.
    Below file for example. Where do we ask the author questions if comments are disabled? Was a topic created but there is no link in the file? I know there use to be a Get Support button that took you there for some. It is not in the files I am following though. I think enabling comments would be a good idea imo. Keep it all on the same page. Thanks
