  1. @Makoto - I recently purchased your (Editor) Message Box, it's really something I would like to use but unfortunately, with me wanting to use it as a 'call-to-action' style notification, I simply can't because it doesn't allow links to be added.

    I really would love to be able to add links to the messages.

    Is it possible to tweak it so that links can be added? I think others would find this useful.

    Many thanks. :)

      @Makoto - That could be the reason, for me it happens on chrome (I will test Firefox). When I had a link, it just brings the URL box up - I add the link and the box returns without a URL.

      Hm, it seems to work fine for me in Chrome as well.

      Could you send me a personal message and provide me with a temporary administrator account on your forum so that I can investigate the issue and make sure it's not a bug specific to your forum?

      Yes no problem @Makoto - I couldn't even get it to work with Firefox. :(

  2. Made a typo trying to access the IPS website. Not sure what I discovered in the process.

    1. chilihead

      Shhh, that's the 5.0 test site.

  3. It's a nice idea, but if you're turning the site offline to perform maintenance and relying on a constant to do that, you'll just end up shutting yourself out as well. If you really want to do that, I'd say the best way of going about it is at the web server level. E.g., with Nginx, to bring the site offline for maintenance while still allowing your IP address access, location / { try_files $uri $uri/ /index.php; # Maintenance response allow; deny all; return 503; } # Error pages error_page 500 501 502 503 504 /error/5xx.html; location ^~ /error/ { internal; root /var/www/default; } Write your own custom error page in 5xx.html here and it'll accomplish what you want. I'm sure you can do the same thing with Apache as well.
  4. I believe IPS4's new application and plugin framework presents a great opportunity to implement a marketplace repository system into the suite. What do I mean by a repository? Currently, in order to install an application, plugin, or theme, you have to download it from the marketplace here. However, wouldn't it be great if you could browse and install all the available third party resources right from within your very own Admin Control Panel? For 98% of IPS4 resources, no manual uploading of files is needed outside of the standard application tarball or plugin/theme XML files. All you'd need for an internal repository is an API to remotely download these files from the marketplace here, then build and install them in the users local installation automatically. The added benefit to installing resources from a repository is upgrades for third party modifications can now be processed automatically along with upgrades for the software suite. I believe this would be a great addition for us marketplace contributors as well, as I think this is something that could really spur more client interest and activity in the third party marketplace.
  5. IP.Board 3.3.x, 3.4.x and IP.Nexus 1.5.9 Security Update

    Yes, if you're upgrading to the latest release, it will include all security patches posted to date, you won't need to apply them after upgrading.
  6. IP.Board 3.3.x, 3.4.x and IP.Nexus 1.5.9 Security Update

    Yes, you merge and overwrite everything.
  7. IPS 4.1 is extremely slow

    I'm guessing resources are intentionally not compressed / optimized at this stage since this website is still in development preview (more or less), so I wouldn't take those results seriously right now.
  8. IPS 4.1 is extremely slow

    I believe an update was just pushed through that addressed the performance issues with notifications, it's back to normal for me now after the recent brief maintenance break.
  9. I actually prefer Opera now myself. Which is now built on Blink. So essentially still Chrome. But better!
  10. Annoying notification icon (content already read)

    This is a bug,  
  11. Desktop and e-mail notifications

    I actually have that enabled. It must be a bug then. I'll submit a bug report. Edit: I don't think that's what I really want. I want to be able to stay active on the site without receiving e-mail notifications. The way that is worded, it seems like it just limits the amount of e-mails I will receive while I'm not active, yes? (The above actually seems to have no effect either way, so it's possibly still a bug)
  12. IPS 4.1 is extremely slow

    No, they do it the right way.
  13. This is something that I also wish could just be implemented and configured in the browser API (notification sounds), but not even Chrome's notifications support that I believe. Anyways, I would support that as a toggleable option. I can see it being potentially annoying.
  14. What do you think about adding an option for the user to suspend e-mail notifications for as long as they are active on the forum? In the past, I've utilized both inline and e-mail notifications. E-Mail notifications provide me instant feedback, as I have notifications set up on my desktop for whenever I get a new e-mail. Now, I end up getting a desktop notification and e-mail notification at the same time. But I naturally don't want to disable e-mail notifications for when I'm not active on the forum. If I could simply disable the sending of e-mail notifications for as long as I remain active on the forum (either by performing some kind of action or polling for instant notifications), I think that would be quite useful.
  15. It doesn't, other browsers have desktop notifications, but they're extremely basic implementations. Chrome just has the best support for them by far.
