  1. IPS, or "Invision Power Software," is the software platform that we use to run the forum. Yesterday I upgraded from version 4.2.9 (the latest in a series of small updates) to the feature-filled 4.3 version. This update has been in the works since the start of 2018, and is finally here and in early tests delivers what it says it will. Some of the best features are for admins and mods, but for you folks - the users and members - here are the features you will notice and want to use: Automatic Content Moderation (Link) This feature lets members hide content that's either inappropriate or spam. If enough members report the post as "inappropriate" (i.e. someone calling someone else names and behaving very poorly) or "spam" (obvious), the content will be hidden and moderators will be notified. Members with a reputation of > 72 need more reports for their content to be automatically hidden. Emoji Support (Link) In addition to the emoji we used to have (like and and and ), we now have access to the full range of normal emoji, like 🤦🏼‍♂️ and 🗑️ and ✈️ and anything else. To type an emoji, just type it… or… just type a colon and then start typing the word. For example, for a facepalm, type : and then "face" like this: :face . A list of possible emoji will appear. Or select it from the emoji menu item in the toolbar. Paid Clubs (Link) I won't say much about this now because I don't know that we'll ever use the club, but eventually members can create "paid clubs" that members pay to join. Clubs received some other enhancements as well. Gallery Improvements (Link) Finally, you can create a gallery that anyone can submit to. For example, I've opened up the Animated GIFs gallery to everyone. My Newport Cup 2017 gallery is open to specified members (captains and players). (Though there's seemingly a bug with this right now.) Excluding Groups from the Leaderboard I've finally got the ability to hide myself from the Leaderboard. If you're not familiar with the Leaderboard, check it out. Blog Improvements (Link) Several small improvements to blogs. Check them out. If you don't yet have a blog, and want one… just visit https://thesandtrap.com/blogs/ and start one for yourself. Improved Search (Link) Yay! I'll look into setting up ElasticSearch eventually, but for now, even the MySQL search is improved. This isn't a comprehensive list. There are a number of other small improvements and changes.
  2. Some Server Software Updates Earlier today we updated the site's server software (and accessory software) to PHP 7 from PHP 5. This should yield a faster experience, and will set the site up to handle IPS (the forum software) version 4.2 soon. IPS 4.2 is nice and will offer many features, including Clubs: Staff can see this IPS 4.2 note, which we may move into a public viewing area soon (trust me, nothing in the staff forum is all that secretive, it's just… boring. ) ImageMagick, Apache, MySQL, and a bunch of other really small things were updated as well:
  3. Not a lot of user-facing changes. I doubt we'll implement 2FA here - there's nothing very secure here for regular members to need or require that added protection. Key Changes In addition to bug fixes and performance improvements, this release also includes: Pinterest share link has been added Two Factor Authentication Images embedded in the editor can now have an alternative title set for accessibility Users signing in through social services, such as Facebook, will no longer be required to validate their email address imgur embedded is now supported CKEditor updated to 4.6.2
  4. I made bold the changes that are going to affect regular users. The non-bold are more for moderators. Key Changes In addition to many small bug fixes, this release includes: Added quite a few new embed providers codepen.io coub.com deviantart.com docs.com funnyordie.com gettyimages.com iFixit.com kickstarter.com meetup.com mixcloud.com mix.office.com on.aol.com reddit.com reverbnation.com screencast.com screenr.com slideshare.net smugmug.com ustream.tv Google Maps Auto-saved content in the editor will now expire after 48 hours If you load an editor that has previous auto-saved content you will now be prompted to keep or remove it You can now set pre-filled reasons for Warning actions that will automatically populate the member notes editor when a moderator warns a user Escape key will now cancel quick-edit on titles There are now more "save and reload" options in various places to keep your place when editing content or settings You can now hide posts that are unapproved rather than just approve or delete When a moderator changes the status of a report in the ModCP the system now puts a reply in moderator comments noting the change You can now quickly edit tags when viewing an item without having to edit it if you have permission If you are using multiple devices to login to a site you will be less likely to be logged out Tags can now be quickly edited when viewing an item Enhancements to IP discovery tools for moderators Actions for reports in ModCP now show when status is changed as a comment Password strength rating and requirement option Guest terms of service alert Minimum age requirement Ban Filters are now Word Filters and can set words to automatically moderate Display name history is now available on profile view Leaderboard
  5. https://community.invisionpower.com/release-notes/ As of about an hour ago, I've updated this site to run IPS version 4.1.2. This change (from to 4.1.2 brings with it a lot of impressive updates, and changes the way we do a few things. Very quickly… The menu structure is now customizable. The content discovery system has been greatly enhanced with "streams." Selective quoting of text. Editor updates that make it easier to @mention, embed content, and edit quoted text. Pages application enhancements. Improved typography, buttons, tab bar, FontAwesome 4.4, and more. Browser notifications and Instant notifications. Search changes. Retina emoticons. The full details are here but I wanted to highlight a few of the changes we've made, and how you can use them to your benefit. Content Streams! Whether you realize this or not, you were all using a sort of content stream before: the "New Content" section of the site. This "new content" existed at http://thesandtrap.com/new-content/ but if you go there now, you'll be redirected to a URL with "discover" in it: http://thesandtrap.com/discover/unread/. This is a content stream, and there are a few awesome ways you can customize them to do what you want to do on the site. I want to leave this thread for exploration and discussion, so I'll just point out a few quick things: If you click "Activity" at the top in the menu, you'll see "New Content" which is the stream I've set up that most closely mirrors the old "New Content" stream. It'll show you all of your unread content. If your list is long, you can scroll toward the bottom and load more unread content. IPS gives you some pre-built streams like "Content I Started" (so you can keep tabs on all of your content) and "Search" and "All Activity." I've also set up some default streams in the "My Activity Streams" menu. Currently there's "New Content" (again), "Content I Started," "Content I Follow," "Members I Follow," and "Content I Posted In." Below the Default Streams you'll see a listing for "Custom Streams" and beneath that, a "Create New Stream" button. Click it and start creating your own custom streams that show what you want, the way you want it! Two other quick things: To make a stream your default stream, click the little checkmark. This will add a link with a newspaper icon near the top right corner of every page you visit on the site for quick access back to your customized activity stream. This graphic is in the top right corner of each activity stream. It changes the way the stream looks by toggling the Expanded or Condensed views. The site will remember your view setting, so pick the one you like and enjoy! I prefer the Condensed view. Streams are share-able! http://thesandtrap.com/discover/6/ Here's the one I have set as my default: it is the same as "New Content" but it shows things in reverse order, as I like to work from back to front. Editor Updates Galore! The IPS team made a huge upgrade to the editor in 4.1 with a focus on speed an usability. Much faster and more reliable. Clicking into the editor is now pretty much instant. Auto-linking (YouTube, threads in the forum, etc.) and member mentions far more reliable. Quotes, code boxes, and spoilers can be dragged and moved and there is no more "red line." When cmd/ctrl right-clicking: options to remove or break-out of quotes, edit links and edit image properties. Pasting asks if you want to convert to plain text. Editor is responsive, and ability to have small editor show in areas with less space. Member @mentions in posts can now be selected by tab key. The editor is much faster loading, particularly on mobile devices. It makes the mobile experience much more pleasant. Note: you may have to empty your browser caches if you're having trouble with the editor. Browser Notifications and Instant Notifications IPS has introduced two new notification features: Instant Notifications and HTML5 Browser Notifications. Both work together to provide a great way for you to stay in touch with what's going on here at TST by letting you know - with a little note in your browser or on your desktop - when you've got a reply, a PM, etc. Browser Notifications IPS has built in support for HTML5 browser notifications where they are supported (right now, this includes desktop versions of Firefox, Chrome, Safari and Opera, but not IE, and mobile browser support is spotty). This allows IPS 4.1 to let you know when important things have happened even if you aren’t active in that window at the time. They have enabled browser notifications in three areas, two of which we care about here: When there are new replies to a topic you have currently viewing Instant notifications (more about that below). Instant Notifications Instant notifications has been a long-requested feature, and IPS is pleased to bring them to IPS 4.1. If you are active in the window, Instant Notifications will show as a standard flash message at the bottom of your screen; if you are not active, and your browser supports them, you will get a desktop notification instead, and a chime will sound to alert you. Clicking the notification box will take you to the new item (or open the notification menu if alert is telling you about multiple items). Customizable Menu Structure You can see that at the top of the site. We've added easier ways to get to some of the content you want to get to quickly, and we're going to continue to improve on the menu structure over time. If you have any votes or opinions on what you'd like to see in the menu bar for quick and easy access, please let us know. Selective Quoting of Text and Quote Editing Improvements Simply select the text you want to quote and click the "Quote this" text. This makes quoting selective text much easier. Oh, and you'll also notice that it's now much easier to edit quotes in your reply box as well, including copying and pasting, deleting quotes, etc. They appear just about as they will when you click "Submit," complete with username attribution So, then, this and an almost countless number of other features have been introduced to TST. Though some background tasks are still ongoing (and will be for a few hours or even days), the site is faster, more responsive, and offers some awesome and incredible new features. Let's use this thread to talk about, troubleshoot, share, and discuss!
  6. 2015-10-29 Pre-Defined Topic Fields lets us pre-define the topic field and title for the Member Swings section of the site. I may add it to the Announcements/Tech Support section too.Highlight Authors lets us highlight the Topic Starter for each topic (thread). Currently this makes their entire post brown and gives them the badge on the left side that says "Topic Starter". The developer plans to change the background to a checkbox which I will, at that time, disable.
