One of the main reasons I want to be able to have paste as plain text the default is we have had numerous times where someone will copy and paste content from another site that has add links in them. 95% of users don't know the difference and the 5% that do can format it after it is pasted.
I replied to your other thread about the variables. I do agree that not enough thanks are mentioned for the improvements that have been made. The positives far outweigh any negatives and the few items that I could consider to be negative will more than likely be addressed in future releases.
I am really hoping some of the features like the variables available come back. We had all custom blocks using a primarily cached index page for the live site. Now on the test upgrade I am going to have to basically start completely over which is fine but there is a lot of stuff missing. Seems like a lot of settings we used to have are not there anymore site wide also. I like where 4.0 is going but wish we still had some of those setting options.
One question I have is we currently have our forums under the domain.com/forums/ directory and ip.content in the root folder and have had it this way since we switched to IPB. If we were to switch to having everything in the root folder would I need to do any nginx redirects or will IPB automatically take care of the 301's?
I did a search and didn't see anything. Would really be nice to have the ability to create proxy urls for images posted on the site from other urls. Xenforo I believe implemented something like this about a year ago. I would like to eventually switch over to https but images from other sources is one of the things holding us back.
