  1. m3rk0rd added a comment on a blog entry: 4.0 - Profiles   

    8) It's nice to move the user's content to the profile page, but it still LOOKS like the same search engine-type results.  In order to see the user's content you have to click each category on the left one at a time. I'd like to see a combined results page.  If that's not possible, what about putting a little icon next to each content type with the number of items of that type the user has submitted.  That way, you wouldn't waste your time clicking on categories of content that don't have any results.

    It would be great if there was a button to allow you to revert a string back to its original non-translated version.
    How easy will it be to give individual members permission to translate for us?  
    Will we be able to limit their permission to a particular language?

    If you don't upload new screenshots, will it keep the old ones?  If you do upload new screenshots, will it let you keep or replace the old ones?  Or is it possible to have different sets of screenshots for different versions?
  4. m3rk0rd added a post in a topic: accommodate commas in titles for database relationship type-ahead fields   

    In a custom database, when you create a database relationship type-ahead field, you can specify multiple records in the related database by a comma-separated list of record "titles". Unfortunately this doesn't work if the "title" field of the related database record contains a comma. That's unfortunate, because some of my "titles" must contain commas.

    I don't know how I would suggest fixing it... the only I can think of is to have a generic IP.Content option that the admin can edit that defines the separation character.

    Fantastic improvements.  I really like the new look so far.
    I couldn't agree more.

    I like it!  Now if only members could do the same thing with the site home page (or a "My Home Page", e.g.) that would be awesome!

    Thanks, i missed that.  I do like Marc_S's suggestion.

    Oooh, I really hope the sidebar blocks can be customized per forum (or category, in other parts of the site).  This would be a perfect way to link content from various parts of my site.  For example, in my forum for discussing upcoming conferences, I could have a feed block from my custom conferences database showing the upcoming conferences, or a block with links to external websites for those conferences.  Likewise, in my conferences database, I could have a feed block showing all recent forum topics from my conference discussions forum.
  9. m3rk0rd added a comment on a blog entry: 4.0 - Calendar Stream   

    I read this in the original blog entry, but assumed I had misinterpreted because the example screenshot had events from both February and March.  Or perhaps it displays the events in the forthcoming month-long period, i.e. until the same day of the month next month.  Either way, I hope that is an option and not required.  I typically have 20 events per year, but some months may have only 1 or 0.  For me the whole point of a "list view" is that my users don't have to scroll through page after page to see what events are coming up in the future.  Plus I've got a few events that are years away.  Nobody's going to scroll through dozens of pages just to see if there happens to be an event in the future.
    As I said, I really enjoy the idea , and I suppose I could even get to like the layout as presented if I could understand the order it puts events in.  But I really hope events aren't limited to just a month-long period.  Please say it ain't so!

    Thanks for giving this idea some thought. I've been asking for this for a while!  It's nice to see it being implemented.  Although I do agree with other's comments about the confusing layout.
    Does this view only work with upcoming events? What about past events? I don't want my past events lost because my users like to go back and comment on them (or "review" them), etc.  If the answer is that you can view either upcoming or past events (i.e. two different pages), then it might make more sense for past events to be in reverse chronological order. Or even better, let the admin specify a default order and/or let users save their own preference (on a per-calendar basis).

    This will make my life much easier!
  12. m3rk0rd added a comment on a blog entry: 4.0 - Logging in as Members   

    When you sign in as a member, does that member show up in the list of online members?
    Also, what happens if you sign in as a member when that member is already signed in?

    Currently, child records are shown in a comma-separated list using whichever field in the child database is identified as the "Title" field.

    I think what Phillyman was getting at was replace comma-separated list with the option to design a template for child records. Sort of like a block, but filtered so only matching records are displayed. Or maybe I'm just projecting my own wants!
  14. m3rk0rd added a comment on a blog entry: 4.0 - Staff Directory   

    Will we be able to set permissions for groups on this page so that, for example, guests could not see the list of forum moderators?
    ADKGamers and Wolfie... Rikki already answered your questions about having the lists stay in sync... you can add member groups as well as individuals.
  15. m3rk0rd added a comment on a blog entry: 4.0 - Follow System   

    Great improvements!!!!  I can't wait to take advantage of the new features.
    Will there be any way to follow a container and get notified of both new submissions and new replies/comments?  This isn't possible now, unless I've missed something.  I'd really love to see this feature added.
    Related to that, in the image above, it says "Send me: An email when new content is posted".  I think of replies/comments as content too.  If the answer to my first question is no, maybe it would be better to have the text in the follow pop-up use the word that matches the type of content being followed.  E.g. "when new articles are posted" or "when new topics are posted".
