    XF 2.2 Reducing the number of records in XF_post

    Thank you @K a M a L & @briansol I'm going with spending the money. If I could do it in a day, i would - but that is highly doubtful. Searching would also explode. How do we mark this resolved?

    XF 2.2 Reducing the number of records in XF_post

    it is really just the provider plan we are on. $$ does fix it. Mostly an angel supported site - everyone on the freemium tier.

    XF 2.2 Reducing the number of records in XF_post

    ...without losing history My hosting provider has a 1,000,000 record soft limit on tables - and we've managed to pass that mark. www.mtbnj.com - it took 14 years, we are not that busy!... I'd hate to lose content - especially some classic rants by members long gone to the ride eternal...

    Ignore Content [Paid]

    If you tell them you are monitoring who ignores which content, i might concede. Good admin does not look at what specific people do "in private." Ever. Unless working a community rules issue. On the flip side, if you look at ignored content (ie rank the most ignored content) that might be useful

    Ignore Content [Paid]

    If you have access to the DB, a simple query would do it. I find it a bit unethical to monitor a user community for content they don't want to see.

    We need to create a mountain bike oriented quick guide to our NJ parks - We came up with a generic template, then all I need to do is invoke it for each park if you look at this one - https://www.mtbnj.com/forum/wiki/syw2r_chimney_rock/ the park specific code looks like (you can see the...

    how old are you?

    58 before vim there was vi, before vi there was ed(it) - it worked great on a silent 700 with acoustic coupler. Yes - i did paper tape and punch cards and MTS (ibm 360/370 terminal environment) but if you say that, people think you are old ;)

    XF 2.1 Links to posts in the same forum are unfurling the wrong post - the first on the page

    Apologies for bringing this back - @Mike Seems I remember clicking on the post number would open the target post on its own page with a single post. (am i wrong?) As an example from my site: https://www.mtbnj.com/forum/threads/january-2022-outside-pic-photo-contest.53361/post-1114254 Is...

    Fixed [2.2.7] Image Copy/Paste from Clipboard Stopped Working

    That paste ^^^ is an attempt to embed the link with the tags from my google photos. This is on a chromebox. I've confirmed it in chrome and edge on my Win 10 machine. Problem is, for the author, they can see the pic, so it appears that it worked. I've confirmed this from other sites, and...

    XF 2.1 XF template "functions"?

    Why not use the regular expression '/\s([.,])/', '\1' on the results of the first call to collapse white space? There is a way to do it all at once, but i tend to go with a couple simple regexs

    I'm more interested in sharing knowledge on using Xencarta so we don't have to call in @Jaxel . He's got to be busy with his other stuff, so if we make the effort - then he just fills in the blanks. Would be better than answering the same Q 100x, which might entice him to answer the hard ones.
