Forum software just upgraded to Invision Community 4.5.1, might have some bugs


Recommended Posts

  • Rick Brewster changed the title to Forum software just upgraded to Invision Community 4.5.1, might have some bugs

Our Download Buttons are gone...

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

<- BTW, I just restored the ": after Location"

 

I also restored our css for code syntax highlighting

 

and the button for the crash log trouble shooter.

 

I tried restoring the download button code, but it is a mess now.  Maybe @Ego Eram Reputo can fix?

 

I also put our personal icons back to square instead of round.

On the plus side, the default buttons for attachments are now nice and big.

Can't say I'm a fan of the look of the forum now ...

 

It almost the same; mostly just color and spacing adjustments for consistency. Is there anything specific you don't like?

Some threads, like the Comedy Thread have a big bar on the right hand side of the screen. There doesn't seem to be a way to hide it.

 

Threads used to have an "Edit" button next to the "Quote" button.  Now, you have to go to the "..." menu to edit a post.

Hard to specify, but the top part doesn't look so pleasing. This is what it looks like to me. Also, I would like more contrast on the gray area.

Yeah, that information pane is pretty dumb. It's just useless stats. What was Invision thinking?

 

Apparently you can disable it in the AdminCP. https://invisioncommunity.com/news/product-updates/45-topic-view-summary-and-more-r1191/

I saw a lot of people complaining about that on Invision's website. Hopefully, they'll revert that change.

Thanks for doing the research.  It's gone now.

Just copy and paste the image URL.

 

I did do that in the Content Aware Fill thread but it just displayed the text of the link, so I ended up attaching an image ... will have a test below (I bet it works now) 

 

[url=https://postimages.org/][img]https://i.postimg.cc/90dgjGbq/gold-4-2.png[/img][/url]

That's BBCode. You just need the image URL.

 

Here's the URL in the context of the BBCode:

[url=https://postimages.org/][img]https://i.postimg.cc/90dgjGbq/gold-4-2.png[/img][/url]

 

On the Postimages website, they refer to is as the Direct Link. Just copy and paste that Direct Link into the forum.

1. Many of the plug-in packs hosted on the forum no longer show the number of downloads?
BoltBait's and EER's do. Pyrochild's, toe_head2001's and mine do not?
I believe these packs are all hosted directly on the forum.

 

2. I also notice there are no spaces between the 'sig' competition entries in the voting/winners sections?
Wouldn't a one line gap between images be less visually distracting and more attractive?

I find the notification that appears between posts for large time gaps and topic renames to be visual clutter.

The small increase in performance you get coding in C++ over C# is hardly enough to offset the headache of coding in the C++ language. ~BoltBait

The attachment meta info is only added if you're using the the colored download buttons. It's a forum thing. I've added a couple of buttons to your plugin pack by way of demonstration.

Many thanks Scott!:star:
... however, the zipped version was previously about a third the number of the installer version?🙄

 

I haven't tried editing that thread for years. Is it now possible for non-admin users to add buttons without BB code or html?

Ah, I see it now is, blue or grey! 😊

 

Perhaps the CSS shadow or blur behind the size/downloads text should be removed for readability?

After the Invision update, that information displayed just fine on standard attachment buttons. It stopped displaying when you applied your fix for the Blue buttons.

 

If you can get it working on both, that would be good. If not, no big deal.

I agree. I also suggest removing the gradients and reducing the box shadow on the Blue buttons. I get that you want it to stand out, but It looks old fashion.

I'm listening ;)

 

Functional fixes first. Then I can do beautification. I'll spend some time on the forum CSS this weekend.

Note to self: Home and Top of Page breadcrumbs are missing and need to be restored.

I like the notifications and I find them informative. I'd like one more, if possible: A notification when the first post of a topic is edited (mostly useful for plugin topics and tutorials).

I agree that the images in the competitions voting topics should be separated by a line gap. A poster can always insert a blank line between images, so perhaps the competition hosts can see to that.

BUT, I would not like like a gap to be forced between images. I can think of instances where a member would prefer to have two or more images stacked vertically without a gap between them.

 

 

EDIT:

Just now, on the Saving an enlarged image topic, I found an example where the new forum notifications can be very useful:
