Hi Rosemary! Is there a way to create a collection for forum posts in this manner so it can be pulled into a widget like you suggest with the blog posts?

Re: Attaching pictures to posts using Iphone or Ipad

Hi Imad, The iPhone and iPad don't have traditional file systems available for storing and accessing files. As a result, there is no way to upload files in the mobile Safari web browser from those devices. This is a limitation of those devices, not of our site. I hope this helps! Brian

Re: Report a posting

Yes, there is: On each post, in the lower right-hand corner, is a small yellow triangle. If a member clicks this, they'll be taken to a page where they can explain why they are reporting the post. Then they'll click the "Submit" button, and the notification is sent. As the Admin, you'll want to make sure that you are alerted when a post is reported. Go to the control panel, to Forums>>Content Management, and select the Approval Queue tab. You can view all reported or moderated content...

Hello, There is actually a option within the forum settings that controls whether the "Report a Post" icon is displayed. You may not have it enabled within your forums settings. Here is how to check. Goto: CP -> Forums -> Specific Forums Click in the "forum details" link for the forum you want to enable this icon for, once that page loads click on the "Display" tab, and then look within the "Topic Page Display Options" within that tab. You should see a checkbox option labeled 'Enable...

Sorry--should have addressed that, as well! It should go to the email address you are using for your Admin. Each admin or moderator who has chosen to receive the notifications by clicking the "On" button mentioned above will get an email to their account email address. Make sense?

Re: Can't share to Facebook from Firefox 50.0.2 in Windows 10

Brian Lenz ·
Hi ST, Thanks for the detailed report with video! Unfortunately, there's nothing within our control that would impact that popup. If you look at the address bar of that popup, it's running on a facebook.com domain, completely outside of Hoop.la's control. The only thing Hoop.la provides to that "share" popup is the URL of the page being shared. Beyond that, there's nothing within our control to modify that popup. In other words, that popup resizing behavior must be coming from either...

Hi Brian, I didn't notice the URL. When I get some time I'll set up a machine with a fresh instance of Firefox and see if that helps. I hope that the issue isn't widespread among our users. Thanks for your ideas. ST

Re: Posting window

Ted O'Neill ·
Hey Paul- I'm not seeing the problem. Those reply popup windows are easily dragged around. I think I may see one issue, and perhaps that is what you are getting at... if you have a lot of text in the box it will auto-resize to get bigger so you can see your entire post. I could see if you post a large post there that the box could get too big. Is that what you are referring to? The solution there would be to not auto-resize the posting box in the reply popup window, which probably makes...

Re: Forum name included in the "RECENT POSTS" list?

Rosemary O'Neill ·
Hi RIch! Are you talking about inside the widget? How would you handle long forum names? Perhaps truncate after a certain number of characters? Also, one workaround (not perfect) would be to set up multiple widgets and specify the forum (then customize the widget title to say the forum name).
Reply

Re: Forum name included in the "RECENT POSTS" list?

Rich Melvin ·
Yes, I'm talking about putting the forum name within the Recent Posts widget. I agree that longer forum names would have to be truncated at some point, but even that would be better than nothing at all there. I'll look into setting up separate widgets for each forum, but we have so many forums I think that would get a bit unwieldy. There's not enough screen real estate on the home page to make that work.

Well, that sure sounds like a bug, especially if you are sure the non admin user has permission to post in the forum. If the user did not have permission, then the behavior would be correct. Let me see if I can replicate the issue, though. Thanks, ST!

Ouch. But thanks for the answer. If this is a permissions thing,... Do you think I could put everyone in a permission circle and give them access to whatever it is that they need to make this work, (without giving away the keys to the kingdom?) ST

Re: New post does not pre-populate the Forum

Hi ST, It's not a permission issue. The link in the dropdown works properly, which is why it's working for you. Regular users don't have the ability to post any other content types, so there is no dropdown. That's where the discrepancy lies and the bug comes from. Hope that helps, Brian

Re: Like and Follow buttons

Brian Lenz ·
Hi Wiekus, Hoop.la does already support following and liking individual blog posts, but just not from the full blog list. To do like or follow a blog post, you must visit the blog content page (vs. the blog list that shows multiple blog posts). For example, on your blog: http://wire.hoop.la/blog You can't like or follow individual posts, but if you drill down into a specific blog post: http://wire.hoop.la/blog/433365571499814471 then you can like and follow the blog post. Does that help...

Hi ST, Those are actually images. If you look in the images section for your theme you will see ubbcode - bold, ubbcode - italic, etc. You would have to make custom white versions of the images you want to update and update the url for those images to point to them. Jeff

Re: Posting Images from Photobucket

Rosemary O'Neill ·
Hi Rich, I "dove on the grenade" and signed up for Photobucket (egads). After some testing, I discovered that you have to use the "HTML" option in Photobucket to get the code for the photo, and then toggle our WYSIWYG box to HTML mode, paste it in, and then it works. I don't know if Photobucket changed their code, or if one of our updates changed something, but that's the only method that works. Hope that helps!

Re: How to keep a keen eye on newbie posts

Great idea, Ted! We occasionally have spammers register and then try to promote products that have nothing to do with our site. The posts get reported by other members and we zap 'em, but by using this recipe the posts would never be seen by anyone in the first place. Nice.

Re: How to keep a keen eye on newbie posts

Frenz Webmistress Deb ·
Is there a recipe for what we deal with? I have posting from email on. Our forum email gets heaps of spam. Hoop.la treats each spam email like a new member trying to register. The post is in the moderation queue so at least nobody sees the spam. But I wish that we could allow "posting via email" but auto decline any registration that appears to come from a first email. Any recipe for that? That would save me daily time in manually declining obvious spammers. Thanks.

Re: How to keep a keen eye on newbie posts

Ted O'Neill ·
Hi Deb- Your scenario is not supported in that we would need to have a condition that checks to see if the content is submitted by email. I think that is a great idea, though, so we will consider adding that for a future release. Once we support that, you can just create a 'moderate content' recipe and set a condition for content posted by email. You may want to post this as an idea in our support site , if you want to be notified when that is added a feature.

Re: First Post Recipe appears not to work if the first post gets moderated

Jonmark Weber ·
Hello ST, Could you give more details about what you are trying to do as part of the first post recipe? When a post goes into moderation the only action from a recipe that will be triggered is the "Moderate Content" action. Once its approved the recipes will be processed again, this time all actions except for the "Moderate Content" action will be processed. So as long as you have your first post recipe setup properly, it should moderate the content, and then any other actions associated...

Re: First Post Recipe appears not to work if the first post gets moderated

Good afternoon ST, The recipe has a "Applies To" condition that you can set, which will allow you to have the recipe apply to Content and/or Replies. The key with this recipe is that it if its set to apply to the first Content, or the first Reply then it will trigger the first time a member posts a content of that type, and then it will also trigger when the member posts their first Reply to a content of that type. We will never add the two values together and only trigger when its the first...

Hi Emma- Removing something from the menu does not disable its functionality. To disable a module, you need to go the Structure part of your admin control panel (either for your main site or for a particular group) and disable the module(s) there by unchecking the box for the module(s).
