     Rugger, thanks for sharing, this sounds great!

    Posting via an iPad - extremely frustrating experience
    For Admins and Members currently posting and spending time trying to compose forum articles using IPS4 via an iPad, the user experience is sadly often, well, often agonising.
    Reading content works well enough, but when you come to try an compose content, the wheel well and truly comes off.
    I understand that issues with the text editor such as capitalisation or rather the lack of it when starting a new line of text have been put firmly down as waiting to be fixed by CKEditor, but something really needs to be done about it! It's so annoying having to delete a whol word just to be able to get a capital to appear.
    When I click on the option to reply to a topic, I don't expect to have to try a few times before it actually responds and shows me a cursor, or to find I'm suddenly taken to the forum that topic resides is in. Or suddenly whisked off to a completely random topic elsewhere on the site and I've absolutely no idea why because there was no link to it anywhere at the time!
    Similary, when trying to compose a news article, and this is my real concern, why is it that there is no way to scroll the text up so I can see what I'm typing; where are the necessary scroll bars?!
    Why can't I paste multiple times into the paste as plain text option and see the bottom of the content that I've just pasted so I can place the cursor where I want to continue typing?
    why can't I see a setting to always set the editor to paste as plain text when using an iPad?
    why can't I add a link to a forum post without it filling the whole editor and I have no way to scroll down to the bottom of the content?
    sorry about the frustration but it's so time consuming and fiddly when you need to post some news on your website and you have to start trying to use other applications to compose and copy paste content into, so you can eventually paste it into IPS4's text editor and hit save. The purpose of the editor is to be able to compose your content via a WYSYWIG interface so you shouldn't need to find another app to do it.
    thanks for your time.
    why can't I 
    See I've mysteriously ended up with half a sentence that I can't scroll down to remove when I edit the post!
    heres an image showing that post with no scrollbars, trying to move the content up with your finger simply doesn't work either. I have scroll the whole page instead which doesn't fix the issue.

    This site - Client Centre Blank Empty Pop Up
    In the Client Centre, when I look under Manage Your Community there is an option to compare Support Plans.
    It displays an empty pop up, at least on my iPad, haven't checked via a PC.
    It happens on both active and inactive licences.

  5. The Old Man added a comment - Permissions changed allowing Guest to Report Content   

    Hi Andy,
    the issue is that this permission is disabled by default, was disabled before I upgraded and it got changed during the upgrade process, allowing spam to get through. Surely a bug?
    Many thanks.
  6. The Old Man added a bug in Bug Tracker - Permissions changed allowing Guest to Report Content
    I've just updated from 4.0.4 to
    I've had reported content (a gallery image) reported by a guest, with spam inside the reported content message.
    It seems the permissions have changed to enable Guests to Report Content.

  8. The Old Man added a post in a topic Favorite Browser?   

    Firefox on PC, sometimes use Chrome. Safari on iPad, as Chrome kept crashing too much.
    A poll would be good addition to this topic!
  9. The Old Man added a comment [4.0.4] Today's birthday   

    I've never understood this, to rule out uncertainty wouldn't the developer mark it as fixed in the bug tracker after they fixed it?  
  10. The Old Man added a post in a topic Favorite Browser?   

    Netscape? They have that on the Internet now? 
  11. The Old Man added a post in a topic Video Embeds to Gallery   

    There's also this App which you may find of use, has an awesome look and appearance but its quite expensive...

  12. The Old Man added a post in a topic Video Embeds to Gallery   

    Agreed! At the moment your best option is to buy Devfuse's really good Videos System.
    also here in the Marketplace:

    According to the Feature Plan, it will be a by product of improved Storage Partners facility but you would parable have to pay for such storage. I simply can't understand why linking to externally hosted images like on Flickr and Videos on YouTube, Vimeo isn't included in the Gallery as standard.
  13. The Old Man added a post in a topic Pls bring back custom RSS feeds   

    I can't believe they removed this feature either, very frustrating. Please bring it back as a priority.

    Add touch swipe to your featured content on supported devices
    When viewing the Downloads page, there are Highest Rated and Most Downloaded sliders/carousels.
    Please could you improve them by adding touch swipe support for mobile devices and tablets, and it's counter tuitive to look for the arrow left and right buttons. I think it would be a nice improvement if you could quickly swipe to view the next or previous downloads, featured content etc.

    4.0.7 This Site - Fails W3C HTML5 Validation
    Not sure if you know, as I think it used to validate... In case it helps fix any other bugs too.
    I tried the forum index page.
    currently 6 errors and 2 warnings.
