    How can you disagree that nobody forced you to upgrade? As far as I'm aware Lindy and Charles aren't going around threatening people to upgrade.
    It's not difficult to grasp the fact that new software - especially software that has been re-written from scratch is going to experience a lot of issues early on. Why do you think none of the major clients (Neowin, Evernote, NHL etc) aren't immediately upgrading to IPS4? There's probably a ton of other reasons but I bet you a major one is the huge risk involved in upgrading to new software that hasn't had any time to mature.

    Nobody forced you to upgrade. Comments like this are ridiculous.

    [4.0.9.2] Child theme not inheriting parent changes ?
    I have a child theme that has inherited all of the templates from my parent theme. I want to change a template in the parent theme so that it automatically applies to my child themes. This doesn't happen with designers mode on.

    Widgets break if the key contains an underscore
    I just started working with widgets for the first time since the alphas. I can't quite remember but I may have submitted a report on this in the past so apologies if there was a reason given back then. However, in 4.0.9.2 - if a widget key contains an underscore, the widget will just output "error" when added to the page.

    Plugin css not compiled in admin section
    I have a theme hook that adds some functionality to the admin login screen. My CSS inside the /plugins/x/dev/css/ folder is not compiled on this page. It is however, compiled with the rest of the css when browsing the front-end.

    [4.0.8] Font face doesn't work with resource system
    @font-face { font-family: 'talldeco'; src: url('{resource="fonts/talldeco/talldeco-webfont.eot" app="core" location="_base"}'); url('{resource="fonts/talldeco/talldeco-webfont.woff" app="core" location="_base"}') format('woff'), url('{resource="fonts/talldeco/talldeco-webfont.ttf" app="core" location="_base"}') format('truetype'), url('{resource="fonts/talldeco/talldeco-webfont.svg" app="core" location="_base"}') format('svg'); font-weight: normal; font-style: normal; }This outputs:
    @font-face { font-family: 'talldeco'; src: url('http://dev/ips4/uploads/set_resources_5/35279bc47c446ac544fb88a6ffbbb47f_talldeco-webfont_eot.15f5ec135efc8a3f44b0fbff094582dc'); url('http://dev/ips4/uploads/set_resources_5/35279bc47c446ac544fb88a6ffbbb47f_talldeco-webfont_woff.074c04f9037f71e300588ee7d68e3d83') format('woff'), url('http://dev/ips4/uploads/set_resources_5/35279bc47c446ac544fb88a6ffbbb47f_talldeco-webfont_ttf.d31a785d9cb996cf89dbef8007c34fff') format('truetype'), url('http://dev/ips4/uploads/set_resources_5/35279bc47c446ac544fb88a6ffbbb47f_talldeco-webfont_svg.979e54219ed5259caff646af7070998c') format('svg'); font-weight: normal; font-style: normal; }This seemingly isn't valid and is rejected by the browser.

  7. Tom Christian added a comment [4.0.8] Can't add resources whilst in designers mode   

    I see that clicking "Advanced: sync from file system" does what I need. It seems a little counter productive doing it that way given the purpose of designers mode.

    [4.0.8] Can't add resources whilst in designers mode
    - Copied a file to my theme (whilst designers mode is enabled) 
    - Added the resource template tag to my CSS
    - Outputs an empty string.

  9. Tom Christian added a comment [4.0.8] Revert button doesn't appear correctly   

    I'd say yes to be honest. My themes are extremely customizable so it's beneficial to my customers to be able to revert all values in case they mess something up. Something for the future perhaps?

    I have a DB dump ready if needed also.

    Hello, Category Tabs for IPS Suite 4 is already available. You can find it here.
  12. Tom Christian added a comment [4.0.7] duplicate key error when disabling designers_mode   

    This issue is now blocking me from theme development. I'm unable to synchronise my changes to the database because of this.
    I tried going through support but understandably they cannot help as I work locally. @Matt - sorry to tag but I was hoping you could take a look at this. I've just lost another weekend of development due to this.

    [4.0.8] target=_blank automatically being appended to links?
    If I put a link inside my "Editor" theme setting, it's outputted with target="_blank" and opens that link in a new window. This should definitely not be the default behaviour.

    [4.0.8] Revert button doesn't appear correctly
    Various settings which have modified values do not have a "revert" button.
    See attached.
