  1. Found it. This user has some cool add-ons. Some should be in IPS by default.
  2. It would be great to have the ability to choose images inserted/attached in an article/post display as a slideshow (buttons to move to next/prev image and swipe on mobile devices). That way all the images would not be displayed as a bunch of thumbnails but just one image (slideshow). Clicking on the image in the slideshow would open the normal full screen lightbox. I think this shouldn't be a huge task but would be a great solution especially for mobile devices where there is little sense to have many thumbnails taking up space.
  3. I really miss the ability to add a caption to images I insert in articles. Sometimes you want to add a description or comment to a photo you add to an article but there is no such option. It would be great, if there was an option to "attach" some text to the inserted image. The newspapers and most online news outlets have this and it's really something that would add to the Pages appeal.
  4. I prefer not to rely on 3rd party addons for payment gateways. It's too risky. Braintree is a PayPal company which is already supported by IPS so this seems a logical next step. They support Bitcoin too and offer high security level with their 3D secure check (user has to ask to have it turned on). A big advantage is that Braintree charges no fees for first 50.000 in payments.
  5. Are there any plans for implementing Braintree as the payment processor in Commerce? Braintree is a PayPal company which accepts credit card payments as well as PayPal payments. The client doesn't need to have a PayPal account in order to pay with a credit card. There are also some extra security checks available such as 3D secure check to prevent fraudulent payments etc.
  6. Something similar was suggested not long ago but received no feedback from IPS.
  7. There is no way to distinguish which language strings are public and which are only visible in admin CP. It's bad enough everything has to be translated from scratch for IPS 4 but it would be much less work to only translate the public strings which are visible to users. Adding a filter to only show public string would greatly speed up translations.
  8. @Charles , @Lindy could you give some feedback? Handling images in general (option to attach an image by copy/pasting it, lightbox behavior, more integration with gallery so you can insert gallery images/albums in posts etc.) could use some improvement. Do you acknowledge this as an issue and what are your plans?
  9. When you browse the forums as a guest, there isn't a link to encourage you to join the debate and register. Communities can only thrive if new users keep joining. Currently there is nothing helping them do that. Reading a topic is like reading a blog. Commenting should be made easier.
  10. I also don't understand why there is no option to directly link a gallery album or image in a post. It's like IPS doesn't want people to use Gallery. Should I take this as a hint that Gallery doesn't have a future at all as a separate app?
  11. But you didn't pay anything for the first translation. So that wasn't fair either. Did you share your fixed first translation here with others? It was always just the system in English that you get when you pay the updates. Nobody ever said otherwise. It seems to me that you want the community to benefit you for free while you demand something in return for your work. It doesn't work like that.
  12. You can translate it and offer it for free. You probably downloaded the language for free because that translator offered it for free. So you can return the favor.
  13. Why? Under lightbox I mean a way to proceed to the next image. The image can be 100% width and clicking either left/right half of the image would take you to the prev/next image. I can provide examples how other sites solve this perfectly but I didn't think the reason for this not being fixed was that IPS can't simply copy solutions available for years. Is it? I'm not sure we're talking about the same thing in Gallery. I want to move to the next/prev image while viewing the fullscreen version of images. As far as I know there is no way to do this in Gallery. When you open the fullscreen/lightbox size of the image, you can use the left/right arrow keys but this only changes the content behind the lightbox while the lightbox still shows the same image. This is definitely not behavior that would improve the user experience in Gallery if you can't even browse through images. Isn't that the point of having a gallery? There are multiple online services that have this done right. I don't understand how it was overlooked when developing IPS4. I understand it would be a major change in 3.4 but why it wasn't done right for 4.0 is beyond me.
  14. I don't know of any forum software that would include different languages. Which software are you talking about? You knew from 3.4 that you had to translate to your language and now you thought it is included? It only sucks that no strings were carried over from 3.4 to 4.0 but the rest is your responsibility.
