  3. What happened to Members List?

    How does the user know?
  4. Member Map

    Was hoping to see a 4.x version by now. My members keep asking for it. We used it extensively on my 3.4 site. I am willing to help pay for development if that will help!
  5. We do not approve every validation on our site. But we get a lot of registrations. I would like to be able to select multiple members for deletion or approval. It seems this was much easier on 3.4. Also, please give us more control over members in Validation status. I do not want members not yet approved to have the same permissions as "newbies". It would also be nice if I could bulk mail validating members.

    True. Our community is very tight. Many of us get together to meet in person. We have local, regional, and national get togethers. So the map is pretty helpful! :)

    My members liked it. But I agree it took up a lot of space. I've gotten a few requests to bring it back but not that many. I get way more requests for a members map ;)
  8. Feature Request - Better link formatting

    MMC uses WordPress for the front end newspages and XenForo for discussion forums. He moved from vB. I tried talking him into IPS.  
  9. Feature Request - Better link formatting

    Too much because? On my site (and others I have moderated) we have whole forums dedicated to news articles. We have specific news moderators that find, format, and post articles just like that. It generates a lot of discussion. Conversely, members will post a single link in the news forum and very rarely do members reply to those posts. The idea is to engage your audience. Pull them in. Make it as easy as possible for them to participate in discussion.
  10. Feature Request - Better link formatting

    That's what I want to do. Post a link to a news article like this: http://abcnews.go.com/Entertainment/wireStory/maureen-ohara-spirited-movie-star-dies-95-34703112 and get something like this: Maureen O'Hara, Spirited Movie Star, Dies at 95 By robert jablon, associated press LOS ANGELES — Oct 24, 2015, 3:46 PM ET Fiery-haired and feisty, Maureen O'Hara could handle anything the world and Hollywood threw at her. Director John Ford punched her in the jaw at a party and John Wayne dragged her through sheep dung — real sheep dung — in "The Quiet Man." In "Miracle on 34th Street" she learned to believe in Santa Claus. But first and foremost, she always believed in herself. "I do like to get my own way," she said in a 1991 interview with The Associated Press. "There have been crushing disappointments. But when that happens...

  11. Feature Request - Better link formatting

    Why would this be a bad thing? Most social sites do this now. On my site we post a lot of news articles for discussion. I would much rather post a link and have it excerpt some content and let the user reply to the post rather than click on a link and not come back. I am not necessarily suggesting it becomes part of the core application, but I would be willing to pay $30-$40 (possibly even more) for an application that enables this.
  12. Feature Request - Better link formatting

    Is it much different than when posting links like this? Technically this is a title, image, and excerpt  
  13. When posting links from web sources is it possible to pull and format additional information from the source? We post a lot of news articles on our site. Rather than just pasting the link, I would like it to pull in linked image and an excerpt of the text like what happens on FB and G+. I would be more than willing to pay for this functionality as an application.  
  14. Save Article as Draft

    Ahh, okay. In case anyone else was as dim as me... After you ENABLE it, make sure you set YOUR permissions to SEE it... haha
  15. Save Article as Draft

    That's what I was asking. I don't see anything in settings like that.
