Can someone explain this to me please.

"5- Disqus Comments Integration[Not possible Due to API Limitations]"

Why do you need to use the API. Just use the javascript embed code that you would use on any webpage to display the comments.

I'm not understanding why you need to use the api?

I don't but you should just be able to add this code to the article page.


<div id="disqus_thread"></div>
<script type="text/javascript">
/* * * CONFIGURATION VARIABLES: EDIT BEFORE PASTING INTO YOUR WEBPAGE * * */
var disqus_shortname = 'DISQUSSHORTNAME'; // required: replace example with your forum shortname
var disqus_url = 'http://example.com/helloworld.html';

/* * * DON'T EDIT BELOW THIS LINE * * */
(function() {
var dsq = document.createElement('script'); dsq.type = 'text/javascript'; dsq.async = true;
dsq.src = '//' + disqus_shortname + '.disqus.com/embed.js';
(document.getElementsByTagName('head')[0] || document.getElementsByTagName('body')[0]).appendChild(dsq);
})();
</script>
<noscript>Please enable JavaScript to view the <a href="https://disqus.com/?ref_noscript">comments powered by Disqus.</a></noscript>

In the Appyet Dashboard you just need to get the app owner to enter in the DISQUSSHORTNAME and use that in the above code. You already have the URL of the article.

You would also need to set the following JS variable so that it pulls the comments for that article. You already have that link as that is the link for the "visit website" link that appears at the bottom of each article in appyet.

var disqus_url = 'http://example.com/helloworld.html';

Have you tried disqus under Feed setting? We already supported web based integration. But the problem is we can not get disqus short code in order to keep comment in sync with website's comment.

Maybe I'm missing something obvious here :)

1) This is my site, so I know the Disqus Shortname
2) Can a field/input form not be added to appyet dashboard where the owner of the app can enter in their Disqus shortname manually for the app.

Then if the app owner has enabled disqus, then the above disqus code is simply appended to the bottom of each article and the shortname and url set onload.

This is exactly what I do with our mobile version here m.spoilertv.com

You don't need to sync the comments as they are done real-time.

Fantastic work on the new version of AppYet. I've really been looking forward to Material Design and I'm very happy you integrated it.

I think this is a fantastic idea, to be keeping track of requested features and changes and tracking when they are implemented into AppYet. I have a few ideas I wanted to share here as well. I will add some more later.

Ideas
- Create the ability to have folders and sub-folders in the sidebar and have different modules within these folders. This would allow for collections of feeds, forum or web modules and keep sidebar content from getting really long at times
- Make the design of the sidebar more in line with the design guidelines of material design
- I agree with the idea raised about interstitial ads but as these are often quite annoying for users I think there should be an option to have them only show when you are closing the application, or other similar options
- If there is only a notification for a single article, clicking on the notification takes you directly to that notification
- It's been mentioned before, but I highly support having in-app purchases to remove ads
- I think that "Explore" feature could be expanded as well, having in app-purchases to unlock new streams of content, would be very powerful

There's a big problem! All of my apps just updated to AppYet 3.1.1 and it was nice to have a look at them on the new version. But there's a problem, it's automatically hiding the read articles and displaying a notice "Read articles are hidden".

This is really bad for some apps that are more or less content databases and there really should be an option to change this. I look forward to hearing your thoughts.

Very strange, when I tried to recreate the error so I could take a screenshot, I couldn't get it to do the error again. If it shows up again I will capture it. By the way, all my apps as set to Never clean up articles.

Did you set an article's limit inside the feed module settings ? 100 or 200...etc ?

5- Set Notification Bar color for the "Settings" - "Explore" - "Downloads" - "Webview New window".

Do you mean customize action bar color per module?

Yes... The notification bar is black on these modules, doesn't even follow the App accent color.
Adding different colors to each module would be great... if possible.

If not possible, at least make it follow the App accent color.

I think thats what he means, is that possible to add?

For my app, the color for explore and settings is my custom color that i set in theme settings.
Its not black for me, it matches. but I do hope we get that option added in the module settings

-- I think that "Explore" feature could be expanded as well, having in app-purchases to unlock new streams of content, would be very powerful

- In addition to group the modules under one menu with the same title,
would group the menu, or ensure that the menus are expandable and reclosable.

1. Add "Loading" option while loading websites in app.
2. Add share app option to share app.
3. add ability to add custom background image for splash screen.
4. Fix notification icon issue.
5. Add option to fix image size on feed module.
