Centering iframe movie

Hey Hoop. Need some centering help... I've attached a .mov to a post and want to CENTER it on the page but all my centering tricks don't work. It centers in the posting window but shows up left aligned after I update the post. <center><p style="text-align: center;"> <iframe width="300" height="415" align="center" allowfullscreen="allowfullscreen" frameborder="0" src="https://www.rotation.org/video-embed/t/0/c/595653434411016213/p/598750592558624827"></iframe> ...

Question about pasting copied images into post (mceclip), image not found

Hey Hoop. Rather than attach some images, for quick posts I will often snip an image from something I've found online and paste it into the post as a reference to what I'm talking about. Of course, this creates an "mceclip" attachment, which is a great feature, thank you very much. So here's the question. After a certain amount of time, if I have not POSTED the post, and then finally go and post it, the mceclip shows up as "Image Not Found" in the completed post. This happens even though the...

Options for New Sticky Header

Following up on now closed discussion of some things you can do to adjust the new sticky header option. I did not want the sticky header to use my default background color, so here's the CSS for adjusting the background color of the new Sticky Header. /*adjusts sticky header to give it white background when not sticky*/ .forum-topic-sticky-header:not(.fixed) { padding: 0 !important; background-color: white; } /*background color of sticky header when sticky*/ .forum-topic-sticky-header.fixed...

Thanks Slaz. Changing the Background color will also help the sticky header stand out from the page's background too. Hoop: When viewing...

Questions about Google Page Speed Insight results

Hey Hoop, I ran our homepage using Google's page speed tool ( https://developers.google.com/speed/pagespeed/insights/ ). Our score was in the "slow" range. Two things popped up as the biggest hogs. Appreciate your feedback. 1. (Need to) "Enable text compression." The lack thereof seems to be the biggest drag. 2. The footer.js is reported at 1.1 mb. Google's notes suggest that's way big and should be reduced by 3/4ths.

How to search for posts by former members?

How can I search for all posts by a former member whose account was deleted but whose posts are still quite visible on our site and useful? The Manage Content search feature requires an active member's name. But because the OP no longer have an account, it won't let me search for the OP's name which continues to be visible with the post. I'd like to be able to create a profile for the original poster so that questions people have about all their formerly posted content will come to my admin...

Change FeePod Emails to Plain Text

It's time to make PLAIN TEXT the default email style for all important admin communications from hoop.la and feepod. For some time, we've been aware that feepod emails (renewal reminders, expiration reminders, and receipts) are being spam-trapped by too many of our premium members' ESPs. This is particularly true of those members using "cable" and "cellphone" company ESPs, such as Verizon and Comcast whose spam filtering is clunky. Over the last two years, it has only gotten worse. We...

Recommendations for Slideshow Script

Hey Hoop, I would like your recommendations for a slideshow script we can run in topic posts, custom pages, and most importantly, on the homepage. I have casually attempted a few and of course, some of the code doesn't play nice with Hoop.la. What's your recommendation for a user-friendly script/code?

Give Admins a way to know who, how many are "following" a forum or topic

It would be very helpful to Admins or Moderators to know who and how many people are "following a topic" or "following a forum." This would allow us to 'see' how popular a forum or topic really was (as opposed to "views"). With that information, we could make sure that forum or topic was getting the attention it deserves. It would also allow us to ping the "followers" for questions, suggestions, and encouragements.

Video Clip Controls

Hey Hoop. Is there, or are you aware of, or are you planning any video player controls that allow folks to "pop out" am MP4 video into a "lightbox-style" window to show it larger than the posting window but less than full screen?

Activity Levels

Brain fart here. When did "activity levels" (points) disappear as an option in the admin menu system? Is it gone or is it buried somewhere? I see activity levels in the Recipes, but I recall another control panel as well. BTW: https://www.socialstrata.com/support/kb-post/hoopla/what-s-the-difference-between-community-rank-and-activity-level-titles-1 still references activity levels and the links go to errors.

Deleting Blog Collection categories & Other Blog Questions

How do you delete a Blog Collection category? If we require membership registration to view Blog content, I assume this means search bots can't see the blog content?? Or can they index the extract? What does the blog menu look like if we implement various collections? Can it be customized/graphics? I'm not seeing blog help in your knowledge base. Is there some?

Specific and Visible On-Site Alert to expired premium members

It would be great to have some sort of on-site EXPIRATION ALERT pop-up for premium members who are about to expire AND who have recently expired. It could be timed to appear once in advance of their expiration date (such as a 30 day notice), and once when they visit after expiration. (I know we have the email alert system, but people don't always read their email.)

SEO! We all need the ability to add Meta Titles and Meta Descriptions for specific pages, forums, and topics

Everyone using Hoop.la should be voting for this --if you want your forums and topics to get better search rankings. To vastly improve search engine ranking, everyone using Hoop could really use a field to add Google-friendly page-specific "meta tags" (both Title and Description) when creating a Forum and topic. Currently, Hoopla only allows the insertion of a SINGLE meta title and meta description for the entire site, but not for specific forums or topics. SEO experience and experts agree...

How to remove a "cross link"

So... I clicked " create a cross-link in another forum " and that was nice. But how now do I UN-cross-link it? I do not see an un-link or "remove cross-link" option in the menus. Other than that, it's been a wonderful day. Hope yours has been too.

Questions about Blog notifications, email, images

Hey Hoop, When I make a post to our blog, I get an email copy of it. Who else in our community gets them? Only those who specifically 'follow' the blog? Or everyone? When I set the blog post to "premium only" do all premium members get a notification that a new blog post has been made? When I receive my email copy of the blog post --it does not show any of the images I attached and inserted into the blog post. Instead, the email copy just shows a placeholder image. Why is that? (I set the...
