    Storage Partners
    IPS4 has the built in ability to store files uploaded to your Suite in alternative locations. You can still store them on your local file system but you can also store them on remote FTP servers or even on Amazon Web Services S3 system. The AWS S3 is a remote file storage and delivery system that allows for very cheap storage along with an included CDN capability. A CDN is a content delivery network that allows your files to "live" all around the world for faster deliver.y
    The advantage to AWS S3 is that it is cheap and well supported on many systems. The disadvantage is that it can be a bit confusing to setup especially if you have never used AWS before. While IPS4 only expects an access key and the name of your S3 "bucket" on AWS, getting that information can be a bit confusing.
    So we will be keeping AWS S3 for those who like it but also partnering with some other vetted providers who are more user friendly and provide other alternative services. We think many of our clients will enjoy the choice and ease of use of having alternative providers.
    Also, as an added bonus, some other providers offer additional features like video hosting and even encoding services. Imagine our Gallery app connected to a system that can encode and serve videos...

    I assume IPS staff are excluded? I have some great ideas for a name like "Place to Find Recent and/or Unread Stuff"

    ​I think you hit the big point that distinguishes our Suite from competitors: the fact that it's a Suite. It's not just a forum, just a blog, just a CMS, etc. but it's a true Suite of apps that can talk to each other and share data.

    ​You discovered my evil plan.

    We have not posted blog entries on them so at this point we are just going to explain them when we publish our new site.

    ​Yes further up this topic I posted the custom templates and such we created to make this.

    IP.Content is now called Pages and IP.Nexus is now called Commerce. They are different in their features sets and options but their core focuses are the same.

    I have a feeling an enterprising Marketplace contributor could make dozens of dollars if they submitted a member list app.

    You can easily add a link in the template if that fits your site's goals. Most clients wouldn't consider it a "store" as such though.

    You can get to that page from the user's profile under Activity or by visiting any file they have and clicking the link to view author's other files.

    ​Oh good I was worried we had not fully explored this topic.

    ​Yes. This is exactly what the IPS Marketplace does.
    ​Yes: AdminCP -> Members -> Profiles
