    States/Provinces
    We have a set list of countries.. What looks to be the US, Canada and Portugal(?) that have their states hard coded in..

    Since state is a required field and can't be hidden if shipping/tax is involved.. And, most countries do have states/provinces/whatever they call them.. Having that hard coded into a file seems.. restrictive.

    Would it be possible for that class, the list of states, to be somewhat more user editable?

    My idea.. Put a file like states.php in the /extensions directory.. If it's there.. Then the info in it is used.. if not, then we use the defaults in the file. That way, we could include a states.dist.php file with an example setup, people could rename it, add their country in and the states/provinces?

    It was mentioned that a hook might be able to accomplish this, but.. Seems this method might be easier?

    I brought this up not an hour before on changes that should be made to the ACP.

    Any ideas? Only one I could come up with was having a specific section for local moderators and controlling them rather than piggybacking them on the forums. It is... Clunky. But I didn't really have any suggestions on where to go with it.

    No... No.. I'm pretty confident in saying the numbers are at least equal.

    Thanks. But.. No.. For every one of you.. There's someone wanting to call me an ass.. So.. I take both equally. You'd both be right..
  7. Jason H added a post in a topic Topic descriptions no more   

    How about this?

    In ACP->Look and Feel->Manage Templates & CSS->Forum View->topics



    <if test="hasTags:|:isset($data['tags']) AND $data['tags']"> <img src='{$this->settings['img_url']}/icon_tag.png' /> {$data['tags']['formatted']['truncatedWithLinks']} </if> If you change that to

    <if test="hasTags:|:isset($data['tags']) AND $data['tags']"> <img src='{$this->settings['img_url']}/icon_tag.png' /> {$data['tags']['formatted']['truncatedWithLinks']} <else /> {$data['description']} </if>

    That way, it shows tags, but, if the topic is a legacy topic and has a description, that would be displayed instead?

    That seem like a happy middle ground? You get to keep the legacy descriptions, they will show on the list of topics, and no new ones can be added.

    Well, this is more once users get through.. Which, is going to happen. I don't care what or how many blocks you have.. If you allow registrations, spam will get through at least from time to time.. There is no foolproof way to do it.. There's only mitigation.

    Turning off registration will pretty much stop it. But, an account could be hijacked and it get through that way..

    If you trust a mod to be a mod.. My opinion is that you should trust them to block spammers anywhere on the site. And, if they abuse the power, then they probably shouldn't be mods in the first place.

    Spam Prevention
    I get a fair number of tickets about this.. When local mods have permission to report spammers, flag as, I mean.. The only get the little 'flag as spammer' icon in the mini profile.

    When it comes to spam.. Even with local mods.. If they have permission to flag.. Shouldn't they be able to do it globally? I mean, if I'm mod of forum A, and I see an obvious spam post in Forum B...

    I don't know.. WE might get tickets if it works the other way.. Might be best as is.. But, I'd think if you want someone to be able to flag as spammer, they could flag them, whether they've posted in the forum you're a mod of or not..

    I know you can still do it.. Just saying..

    Orphaned Files requests
    Two user requests..

    1) Automatically have checkboxes de-selected.. In a way, I see this.. Prevents an accidental deletion. Maybe off by default with a select all?

    2) Sort the orphaned files. If you're checking them, it's easier to check a directory at a time.

    View All User Images
    Had a number of people asking about the old Gallery 3 option to view all users images.

    We have the option to view all their albums, but what about images they post in Public Albums?

    Similar to but.. More in depth. On Gallery 3, there was the link to see all images the user had posted.

    Allowing albums anywhere.
    Had several people in tickets mention this..

    Anyone can create an album in root now.. What if someone wanted all personal albums to go into a "Members Albums" album?

    Then have a "Screenshots" album that everyone could post in, and a "Fluffernutter" album the same..

    Seems we need a way to say "Don't allow new albums in root" and in global albums, a way to prevent creating of albums in them?

  13. Jason H added a post in a topic Bulk upload from zip   

    Gone. Search bug reports that I started, I asked about this INSIDE one legit report... There's several things removed.. Being able to upload 10 images in a go kinda replaces the ZIP.. But, I think the bulk import from ACP will be returning.

    "splash" page
    Someone set this up on their site, and.. It was such a good idea, I thought, I should mention it here.

    When you click on "Store", you have the featured item in the middle, and your categories on the left, cart on the right.

    What if you don't want a featured item, you just want a "Welcome" message to display when they click on the store?

    This user actually created a 'free' item, set it as featured, so that they could have a welcome message show. Just seems like it'd look better if we could give the option where they could code in a welcome message, and it would look in the same style as the featured entry..

  15. Jason H added a post in a topic Ability to override pay-for-download on category basis   



    Don't think you're thinking quite as far out as I am on it.. Though.. Your way is good as well.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think you're thinking a "Can Download without paying (where allowed)" in the group settings..

    Then in the download category, a "Allow users to download without paying (where enabled)"


    My idea was more along the lines of setting what groups in each category could download without paying.

    Imagine you had 2 subscription groups, and 3 categories.. Basic Member and Advanced Member are the two sub groups, along with just Member for a group that has no subscription.

    3 categories are A, B and C

    Category A, Members pay, but Basic and Advanced do not

    Category B, Members and Basic Members pay, Advanced does not

    Category C, everyone pays

    If you allow a selection of what groups.. It gives you much more flexibility.. This is in no way as EASY to program (You're welcome, Mark) as the basic on/off.. But.. Much more control.

    Now, in this instance.. Do you really need the Member group level option? No.. Nice for a 'kill switch', but, it's really not needed.
