  1. erosion added a post in a topic: Polling improvements please   

    This has been requested for so long, it's getting hard to understand why nothing is done. Honestly, the option to hide poll results (until a given date or admin action) and guest voting cannot be that hard to implement.

    Polling improvements, please!
  2. erosion added a post in a topic: Calendar Event API   

    I would definitely be interested in any added functionality for the calendar.
  3. erosion added a post in a topic: RSVP Restrictions   

    This would be an extremely useful feature.
  4. erosion added a post in a topic: ability to add transaction fees to payment gateways   

    ...and specifically in Finland, where we reside, the law allows all payment method -based surcharges as long as the customer has been fully informed about them before the payment is processed.

    I don't think that's entirely accurate (allowed in UK only). In the EU version of the user agreement, which is what applies to us, that paragraph has been rephrased as follows:

    The ability to add transaction fees - both fixed and percentual - to payment gateways would be very useful.

    For example, receiving payments via PayPal is much more expensive for us than the other methods we use, so the only viable way to allow Paypal would be introducing an additional transaction fee. Currently this is not possible, at least not without making PayPal-only duplicates of all of our products.
  7. erosion added a post in a topic: better logging of manual account credit changes   

    When an admin manually adjusts a customer's account credit from the ACP, currently all that is logged is that a change was made, and the account credit sum before the change.

    For rather obvious bookkeeping & security reasons, the log entry should definitely include what the actual change was / what the account credit was after the change.

    There seems to be no option to hide poll results while the voting is still ongoing...? I imagine it would be very simple to add such a basic feature.
  9. erosion added a post in a topic: Calendar in mobile skin & mobile apps?   

    I was just wondering why the calendar is not included in the mobile skin? It's understandable that it's not yet in the brand new iOS app, but the mobile skin has been around for a while, right?

    For our community the calendar is the most important part of the suite, after the forum itself. To be honest I feel a little cheated that the calendar is not a 'full member' of the suite, so to speak, as I never would have expected it to be this way when purchasing.
  10. erosion added a post in a topic: Moving from SMF 1.1 & MODx   


    we are planning to migrate our ~100 user sports team site to IPS. We are using SMF 1.1.11 embedded in MODx CMS, which handles news articles, static content and dynamic content such as team/player statistics. We intend to use IP.Content to handle all the articles / blogs.

    We currently use a semi-working bridge between MODx and SMF to sync user accounts and logins, but we should be able to do the conversion just from SMF, discarding the MODx user data, without too much loss of information.

    Our SMF installation is slightly modded, in addition to the MODx bridge there's a shoutbox and a 'who voted what' mod installed.

    Two questions:

    1) Some people seem to have experienced problems recently with the SMF 1.1 conversion, what is the current status? Will the modifications in use cause any problems?

    2) We have approximately 100 hundred news articles in MODx which will need to be moved over into IP.Content. They are in the MODx MySQL database as plain html, just header, paragraph and image tags. CSS (which is to be discarded) in an external file, images on the same server. Besides the actual content, I think only the 'time published'- field within the CMS itself would need to be moved over to IP.Content. Is there any way to ease our manual workload in converting these articles to IP.Content? We would probably want to move all the images into IP.Gallery so I'm guessing we'll have to do that part by hand, but if we could just get the html data converted, it would be fantastic.
