Interesting, I wasn’t aware about that – so I assume, that you have observed that behavior yourself and not only read about that?
Yes I have: with a charger plugged in and the flash LED on, the phone does show the charging indicator, but the charge level is still dropping. Ampere also shows that it is in fact draining the battery:
I guess, this would be a hardware limitation, I can’t think about a setting controlling this – however, honestly, I don’t know.
Okay, thanks anyway. Motorola probably had a good reason for this limitation, such as temperature control, and overriding it would thus be risky too, even if it were possible.
Firstly, a big thank you @MSe1969 for keeping my old Moto G (falcon) secure!
My question is about a specific feature: for some reason, Motorola has apparently disabled charging the device when the camera (flash) LED is on (I’ve found at least one Reddit thread confirming this). Do you happen to know if this is a hardware-level limitation, or if there’s any way to override it in the OS/kernel?
I’ve been testing the phone as a security camera, and while it’s otherwise working, in practical use not having the flash LED means having to have a separate light source, adding its own complications (timers and so on).
Happy to see the plugin get a new lease on life from an active and engaged developer. I only use a small portion of the features (suggested local tags), but this features alone makes it one of the most useful plugins for me.
Thanks for keeping Simple Tags alive!
Simple Tags is great in picking exact local tag matches from the post text, but with Finnish (and probably some other languages as well), inflection often causes it to miss relevant suggestions (from Local tags). For instance, when using the inessive case ”Helsingissä” in the post, Simple Tags won’t suggest (previously added local tag) ”Helsinki”.
A fuzzy matching feature would help here.
While Simple Tags’ future was in limbo, I tested some other plugins, and one of them (maybe Smart Tag Insert) had such a feature: it showed related tags using some kind of fuzzy matching. I have no idea how difficult this feature would be to incorporate into Simple Tags though.
I know I can show all tags with the ”Click tags” feature, but with close to 2000 pre-existing tags, the full list is quite unwieldy.
Thank you for the app, it’s surprising that this basic functionality doesn’t come built-in with the device.
Would it be possible to either add an option to autostart tracking when GPS is ready, or to allow the user to start the tracking despite GPS not being ready yet? My problem is that if GPS isn’t ready right away, I forget to manually start the tracking when GPS becomes ready later. (I’m used to ignoring the device buzzing during activities.) I don’t mind missing GPS data at the start of my walks (before satellites are found), tracking the time is more important for me.
Also, for my 735XT at least, the up arrow button has a long-press options menu, which (among other things) allows you to lock the buttons. For some reason this doesn’t seem to work in Simple Walk, as the up arrow button only brings up another data screen. I don’t know if it’s possible to implement (or pass through) the options menu in apps, but I’d like to be able to lock the device for walks too.
It works! Brilliant, thanks a lot!
I’m having a problem adding a custom image when the generated preview has already picked up an image. If I remove the automatically linked image, the ’Remove Image’ button remains as such, so there’s no ’Add Image’ button in its place to add the custom image.
As an example, here’s a recorded gif of my attempt to customize the image when linking to this page on Tukes’ website.
With few hints about preview-suitable content provided by that page, Visual Link Preview picks up an overlay image (magnifying glass), which I’d then like to replace with the actual image (a safety reflector) from that page (after already downloading it). But after I click ’Remove Image’ to remove the overlay image, I have no way to add the correct image, because the ’Add Image’ button is missing.
I’m using the current latest release of the plugin (2.0.1) in WP 5.1.
Sorry for necromancing, but because Google seems to like this thread, I just thought I’d add a mention that a
check_data_directory_permissions option for
config.php has since been implemented (and backported down to NC12), and it allows the admin to turn off the automatic permissions reset (by assigning it false).
This is discouraged however, and ACLs or other means of managing access are still the better option where available.
Thanks for the excellent plugin! I’ve only had one issue so far: the previews are apparently saved encoded, which makes any decoded preview content unsearchable with WordPress’ search function (whereas searching for a piece of the encoded string brings up the matching post). If you could implement searchability of the decoded content, that’d be great.
The shortcode examples on the FAQ page seem to be rendered (”It’s only fair to share…” + sharing icons) by the plugin instead of being shown as code. You should probably escape the shortcodes in those examples.
