  1. Topic custom fields - possible?

    Thanks Lindy, but I'd rather not use any plugins because most of the time they cause issues which can break the suite, or stop working after an upgrade etc. It also doesn't look like you can limit the size of the thumbnails, and even in the plugins demo you can see that the thumbnails are giant 2-mb images. I hope you actually consider adding this as a native feature.
  2. Topic custom fields - possible?

    With all due respect, I think you're really, really wrong here. People on the Internet are getting lazier and lazier and prefer to have content given to them, rather than looking for it, this is why grabbing a user's attention is so important.  I doubt there will be any more supporters of this because most IPS users hate change and are stuck in 2004. But I was kinda hoping you would see why this is a good idea because you've been doing a lot of great work on improving content discovery and user engagement, such as the Activity Stream (which let's be real -- everybody hated at first).
  3. Topic custom fields - possible?

    What do you think @Lindy?
  4. Not only are empty lines annoying, they are also unwanted from the poster. When they hit enter, they do that to embed media, not not create a new line. So the most logical behavior would be to only turn a link into an embed when Enter is pressed. On top of that, it wouldnt be that big of a problem if such behavior created just one empty line. But because some large images take a while to embed (the editor has to download the entire image before it embeds it, so some large gifs could take over 5 seconds to load), users think hitting Enter would help and some posts end up looking like this:                                                     Please just consider this @Lindy It's frustrating how such issues are often ignored simply because they are not applicable to communities like this one and you guys don't experience them.
  5. Topic custom fields - possible?

    Bump. @Kevin Carwile's app is great, but it doesn't allow creating a file upload field. Please consider this @Lindy I think creating a Topic Image field would be an exteremely good idea. I know it may seem a little "out there" but really I believe it would benefit activity on all IPS forums. One of the biggest problems with the never-changing forum layout is that it simply lists topics and it's just text, which doesn't catch a viewer's attention. Topics with images would bring much more clicks and activity. As an example, take https://www.reddit.com which used to simply list text links as well, but has now added thumbnails and it clearly works for them. 
  6. IPS4 server response time

    I think you guys missed my point here... I understand completely that PageSpeed's recommendations are just recommendations and most of the time they mean nothing. What I'm talking about is the fact that I ran over 10 IPS4 sites through the tool and it mentioned server response time for 100% of them. And then I tested a bunch of non-IPS4 sites, and that recommendation came up for none of them. That's why I'm concerned, it can't be a coincidence.
  7. Yes, this please. I asked for this so many times.                                                    
  8. IPS4 server response time

    This is what it shows for me:
  9. IPS4 server response time

    I was running my site through Google's PageSpeed Insights and one of the recommendations was: Now, I'm not among people who think that the PageSpeed score should be a 100 or anywhere close to that - I completely understand that those are just recommendations. However, as an experiment I ran about 10 other IPS4 sites, including this community, through the test and it suggested reducing server response time for every single one of them.  Could it be that there's some sort of issue with IPS4 that makes the server respond slower?
  10. This site, Activity taking 8-10 seconds to load

    Any stream that's not limited by date is slow by me. Which means that it tries to load all the data for the entire forum probably. As soon as I limit a stream by date it's superfast. That's why Revenge's stream is superfast because it only pulls data from today.
  11. I hate to bump this again, but this is getting so annoying to the point that most of my users are now disabling this feature at all even though it was the one they were most excited about in 4.1. Here's an example that I just personally experienced and I think it illustrates the issue perfectly. So somebody just posted a topic with a 3-minute video on an external site. I opened that site in a new tab to watch the video, and obviously left the tab with my site open so that I could go back to it after. As I was trying to watch the video, the other tab kept sending me browser notifications as other people were replying to it: THERE'S A NEW REPLY!!!....... ONE MORE!!!.... 6 MORE!!! and I couldn't even watch properly until I went back to that tab, closed it and made sure I didn't have any other tabs with my site open. Look I understand that you guys don't experience this issue because topics on this community don't receive that many replies that often, but it's a problem on more active communities. Please do something @Lindy
  12. Content discovery improvements for Pages app

    Perfect, thank you! Although, what if I want to have multiple Database Relationship fields, they would use the same template, right?
  13. Content discovery improvements for Pages app

    By the way, you said you haven't used the field in 4.1 yet, but do you by any chance know how to customize the way it's displayed? For example, show the record image of the linked record?
  14. Content discovery improvements for Pages app

    I think that I'll just report it as a bug because it doesn't make sense at all to only be able to select from a different database. Thanks for letting me know!
  15. Content discovery improvements for Pages app

    Are you sure? I just tried creating a field and I can only select a different database.
