I'm really frustrated by the encoding of IP nexus.
Such powerful piece of software is being held down by it is own protection. I made a thread like this in the past and IPS staff explained why they are doing it.
I'm here to urge you guys to reconsider opening up IP nexus. We, your customers, have awesome ideas for IP nexus yet we can't actually translate those ideas into reality with the current limitation. IP Board is popular because it got solid community backing it up, please allow us to back IP nexus with needed features.

Is there easy options for me to set the whole system (if I buy all the addons) to only allow Nexus products buyers to be forum members?
What I want:
1. Any buyer who has a new email that hasn't been registered in our system will be automatically registered upon payment.
2. Only buyers can be registered and thus participate in the forums. No open registrations.
Is it easy for me to do this? How?
When someone want to buy something from nexus, they will fist asked to create an account/log in. After that they enter their personal data in nexus (name, address, etc..). Here is the beauty Nexus allows you to set buyers to be upgraded into a new group when they buy a product and also if it is a subscription it down grade them.
What I did is as follow:
In my forums I renamed members to be Visitors, then adjusted their permissions and only allowed them to post in pre sale forum or test forums while the rest is blocked for them. When they buy my products they are automatically upgraded to a customer rank and gain full access to the forums. If they cancel their subscription or don't renew they get downgraded to ex-customer group which blocks them from most of the forums.
In regards to your question i think I gave you a full answer :).
The best thing about IPB is the adminCP, almost perfect control over your site.
