    [interface] consistent strings...
    each menu item should have its own independent string from that of the text that appears above the content and below the ad.
    (like the forums) you are able to change the text of the string from "Forums" to "Community Forums" or what ever with out it affecting the tab menu.
    this is not the case with all other apps. The other apps seem to use the same string for both the menu navigation and the title

    tagging or hash tagging is best served when its community driven - where others can easily assign on the fly a tag that best describes the thread. sometimes the original poster has no idea what they are posting about - especially on technical sites vs social based sites.

    this need a new "sound" and or ajax notification  because its not obvious that a new private chat was initiated

    Banners Maximum Size Not Saved
    When entering the values of the dimensions of the banner the values never save. 
    Also there are no Labels on the fields for the dimensions so its unclear which is height and which is width.
    I can't confirm this but once the field values are stored - then i assume that these dimensions are presented to the user on the layout before - they upload the image?.

    Just wanted to say thank you for making commerce a easier to have one Product - or store item but allow for different payment terms. I can see this much easier to maintain!

    [4.0] Blog RSS Import Feed wrong author
    I've been having an issue - for a while in 3.47 had someone who's blog imported from word press - and it was all sorts of ugly - a ton of random html.
    Hoping 4 would solve it. 
    So i turned on rss import feeds and edited her Atom/RSS import and pasted the url from her blog.
    A second later it imported her most recent entries but ME as the author?!  - And not her as the author.
    So I deleted all the posts and then logged in as her and tried to add the URL in her feed but every time it rejects the same URL saying it was invalid.
    DO people who have RSS imports be in a group that allows HTML She is in a group that does.
    So i just now (while typing this) loved back in as me and added the url to her blog but again the every entry has me as the author.
    I had also had to delete about 600 duplicate entries on another blog as they were all posted as "guest"

  9. Ocean West added a post in a topic: File Path Consistency...   

    just leaving this here to hopefully have the core system be consistent in paths for uploads. 

    The system generated these directories, the monthly_MM_YYYY is the old style of file naming and still being used. The system also generated monthly_YYYY_MM and oddly it seems this is some 'cache' file because its a mixed bag of different files (attachments user photos etc - even attachments from support system )
    Ideally i would like to see
    its not really necessary to have "monthly" in the directory path.

    i recommend not to install the sample global message plugin  http://community.invisionpower.com/4docs/advanced-usage/development/plugins-an-example-r72/
    for me it caused all sorts of grief -
  11. Ocean West added a post in a topic: No Adds when offline.   

    I think it would be prudent to be able to turn OFF advertisements when a site is offline.
  12. Ocean West added a comment: Site offline message... can't edit until site is offline...   

    this is true for all apps too you can't even see or prepare the "offline message" until after you turn it off.
    it would be nice to be able to compose and preview the default offline message before you flip the switch. 
  13. Ocean West added a post in a topic: PopOut chat window Resize Dynamically   

    can someone pretty please tell me how to fix the heigh of the pop out chat window i have tried every variant of hard coded height attributes and auto or percentage and just can't get the window to fill the chat with the content properly and maintain the tabs at the top.
    just spent 2 hours on a chat and it's frustrating.

    when will the previous generation learn not to put two spaces after periods in a sentence.

      I regularly find classmates who do it too... I don't think it'll go quickly.

      In scotland it's still taught as a fairly common thing to do.
