Re: Photo Album - increase photo upload size

Dave Dreezer ·
In your control panel, under forums/master settings/advanced/photo albums. Will it affect the running of the board? Well, it'll make your photo albums feel slower and seem to load slower if they are all made of larger sized images. You'll also use up your disc space quicker with larger images.

Was this an offer to be a Community mgr? Lil FYI, the main page video does not show up in IE 9. It's just a red x, unless you hit compatibility mode.

That was a generous offer in my email Rosemary, of "one of the coolest, most challenging jobs on earth".(In the email that was sent to everyone who has a watch on Social Strata I would guess). Not sure I can fit in the post of 'community manager' in as I am a full time grandparent these days and looking after my kids is far and away more preferable than a similar job on the UK Big Brother forum.......... Good luck though

Thanks JC, we'll look into that bug... Little did I know that the way I chose to start this blog entry would confuse so many people! Sorry about that... We're also dealing with a possible notification glitch that sent email notices to a much larger group than it should have. If you received the email notice of this post and didn't want it, we apologize!

Re: photos and videosand profile pics

Hello- You cannot use MySpace themes. You can customize or create your own Hoop.la themes in the Themes section of our site's control panel (Manage > Admin Control Panel > Themes). In terms of upload issues you are having... I am not sure what the problem might be. We have no other reports of file upload issues and I have tested and see no issues. My best guess is that if you uploaded some bad CSS on your site it might be conflicting with Hoop.la in some way. Try using a stock theme...

Hi Nancy! You can go to the control panel use the "Manage Content" search to come up with the list of clips you want to delete. Then use the drop down menu to delete them. Hope that helps! Rosemary

Re: The Miscellaneous UI Release

I'm glad we can now add members in the backend. In the past I've attempted to do this refreshing obsolete accounts with new personage to take over the account, but when I'd open a dialog with them, the system wouldn't allow me to message the member due to the same IP I guess. So I'm wondering, will I have the same problem under the new release if I register people.

Re: The Miscellaneous UI Release

Brian Lenz ·
Hi Lhisa, Hoop.la doesn't do any checks based on IP address that would prevent you from sending a dialog to another user. Users can choose to prevent others from sending them dialogs, however (assuming you are talking about dialogs). Thus, the new feature that allows you to register users through the control panel should behave the same way. The only difference is that you will not be logged in as the new user (as you would have previously). Without knowing exactly what error you're getting,...

No, I wasn't blocked. I just noticed that in the past if I signed up as a new member under my IP address on my hoop.la site using a different email address as a test member, I could not send a dialog to that test member & I attributed that to having the same IP since I was also the Admin because the system shows the registration IP & the last IP used to login. If the system however is not wired to see that as a conflict, then something else was blocking my ability to receive a dialog...

Is there a way to disable the " Unified Posting Button on Home Page"?
Comment

Re: The Miscellaneous UI Release

Brian Lenz ·
Hi jpmfan, Yep, you can do that with custom CSS. Just add this code to the Custom CSS section on the Display Settings page in your control panel: #overviewPostingOptionsButtonWrapper {display:none;} Hope that helps, Brian

How many clients did this go out to? How many suggestions did you have to do this? I refer to the slide show.

Re: The Miscellaneous UI Release

Hi Jon, This release went out to all Hoop.la, UBB Forum, and QuestionShark customers. We've had numerous requests for slideshow functionality over the past year or so (I don't have an exact figure to give). We support slideshows now via the Clips widget Ted mentioned as well as on the Clips page itself. Hope that helps, Brian

Re: The Miscellaneous UI Release

Always appreciate your releases but disappointed you've stopped giving them creative names. We implemented your suggested CSS code to suppress the new Post Content button. Our Reason: at our site it would likely invite too many improperly located or duplicate topics. I do like the idea of encouraging posts, however, so I'm wondering about a widget that features the current "hot topic" (as determined by activity/views/whatever) and has a 'reply now' button to catch interest on the home page.

Photo Album - increase photo upload size

John ·
Is there an automatic maximum upload size for photos in the Photo Album? How do you increase this size? If the size is increased, will this have any negative effect on the running of the Board (i.e if a lot of large files are uploaded?) Many thanks
