  1. Count me in too. Just saw your app and it's gorgeous!
  2. Woah! Does anyone received this message? I still not yet launched my Babble solution. I agree with you on this @Simon Woods The actual reason behind the persue of IPS Chat alternative for me is not because my community can't live without it, but to ensure that my member's experience would not be disrupted by the absence of this feature. Because, as a community owner, I know that my members are always have plenty of "Good standard" instant messaging choices in today's world. But when my members are joining into the community and would like to have casual conversations, it would be more difficult for them to grab smartphone or login to Facebook Messenger and start chatting than just go to Of course this perspective would be change when IPS community suite 5 has came out with a native smartphone app or something like this happened in the near future:
  3. Sorry for digging this topic but hey, I owned the Nintendo Switch for a month now and I really love it!
  4. My apologies for unclear explanation. I was considered ArrowChat option and I understand that it is a standalone system which you need to install on your server once purchased the license. But as it requires to change the footer of the website to add the ArrowChat bar, so it does not met my requirement in "layout changes on the webpage". Anyway, I know that ArrowChat is a very professional chat system and a lot of positive feedback was given by its client, including many one in here as well. And I would use it if it not charged me $295 for SSL support and a native chat page without footer change. This is just my humble opinion after all.
  5. I was voted "No" in this poll. Like you, I and my members are perferred the simplicity of alternative chat solution, the tightly integration with the IPS system (no messy Popup and any layout changes on the webpage) and also the dependency from external services. (So Discord, ArrowChat or BlaB are all not met my requirements) I also lose a lot of core member who used the current IPS Chat regularly for their off-topic conversation. I saw that you already bought Babble from @CodingJungle and you are a self-hosting community. If you can fully manage your server (Dedicated or VPS), why not give Babble a try? Considering that the license price is not cheap. (Mine was US$140 - Software and Copyright Removal) I just purchased it yesterday (from CodingJungle website) and followed the setup instruction on his website. Even I have not much knowledge about server administration (My server contains CentOS + Directadmin + NGINX + SSL + CSF Firewall + blahblahblah), I managed to get things works pretty fine and perfectly replaced the current IPS Chat in just less than 1 hour (it shoud not take much fewer time if you are not clumsy like me, haha). And you know that, in addition to it simplicity, this chat solution has much more capability under the hood. And of course, CJ is working on the next version, which would bring addition functions too. As of now, I think that Babble is the best replacement of the current IPS Chat. You will not need to connect to the external services. You will not need to add new application namespace and modify your website code and layout. It is perfectly integrated to the IPS community. Plus, it was developed by a well-known IPS Marketplace Developer and will receive a major update soon. Despite the pricey license price compare with the other more powerful chat services you mentioned in the poll options, it is actually a one-time cost (you can choose to renew the license yearly to receive future version updates and supports but for the simplicity sake, it is optional) and if IPS Community 5 is not going to release anytime sonn, you can stay with this chat solution for a very long time. For me, I will let my member use a Voice, Video call and whatever they on their own Facebook or their preference services. But on my community, it must be simple, fast and reliable. Babble is my recommendation choice and I will start launching it to my members after the IPS Chat closure. P.S. If you are not comfortable to setup Node.js, configuring and maintaining it on your server, I heard that CodingJungle is currently working on a SaaS options for Babble, which should be working just like the current IPS chat. (CJ will host Babble servers and provide you a client application to install as the IPS application on your own community) Stay tune with him for more update.
  6. It works! Thanks for your quick help!
  7. Hello TAMAN, On the recent updates, I found that line truncate option on the article slider did not work for unknown reason. The previous theme version (2.0.0) works fine. I even tried to delete and freshly install the current theme version and also its pages_templates.xml with no success. Please help.
  8. Hello @TAMAN, On the latest theme version (2.0.1) and IPS, at the staff directory page. The "edit information" button went missing. It was appeared before upgrade. I already discussed with IPS staff and they indicide your theme as the root cause of this issue. Please help.
  9. Many thanks! The cover photo issue on mobile is also fixed now.
  10. Hello, I just updated your plugin but I found that the dual avatar display bug still exist. I have to comment this line on core>front>global>userBar of the Theme's HTML and CSS template in order to fix it. <li id='cUserLink'> <!-- {template="userPhoto" group="global" app="core" params="\IPS\Member::loggedIn(), 'tiny'"} --> <a href='#elUserLink_menu' id='elUserLink' data-ipsMenu> {{if isset( $_SESSION['logged_in_as_key'] )}}{lang="front_logged_in_as" sprintf="$_SESSION['logged_in_from']['name']"} {{endif}}{member="name"} <i class='fa fa-caret-down'></i> </a> Also, my previous reported issue on the member profile's cover picture is not working on mobile still occurring on this new version. Thank you.
  11. Hello, I just updated to V 2.0.0. Very nice slider! However, I found that the social icon went missing. Did I forgot anything on these new configurations? Thank you.
  12. Sure. Here are the template list I have. EDIT: This database configuration works for me at this moment. Article Template: S1 Two Column Listing Template: S1 Two Column First Featured Display Template S1 Two Column First Featured If I attempt to changed the article template to S1 Two Column First Featured, the homepage will crash.
  13. Of course, I tried and reinstalling it many time with no luck. What could be a cause of this issue? It worked pretty fine on your previous theme version.
  14. Hello Taman, I noticed that you added the different article styles license to my account after the new Magnum theme update (thanks!), so I will use this thread to report issue related to the article style instead. After Magnum theme 2.0.0, I reinstalled this article style using the instruction provided in the application download page. (on my IPS of course) After template and plug-in installation went successful, I found that on "S1 Two Column First Featured" template, it shows a fatal error on the article template (home page) like this: However, on the other templates, such as "S1 Two Column" or "S1 Three Column First Featured", it has no issue. Am I do anything wrong during the upgrade process? Thank you in advance for your support.
  15. At first, I thought that I violated the IPS community rule at some sort. (and have to open service ticket after that)
