Noni added a topic in IP.BlogBlog this not parsing images from topics as thumbnailsI have a blog and a topic where i posted some text with images.
Here is the exact post:
Here is the exact blog entry
I used the 'blog this' feature, removed the tags and published the entry. I was expecting the blog entry to look similar to the topic entry but the images are not showing as thumbnails but as download links.
From a ticket a member of the ips staff said that this is actually the intended way for he blog to work..
I don't really agree to this as it's something that makes me put away the blog and use the forum instead.
Maybe you could reconsider the functionality so that the blog this button copies the content exactly as it is shown in the forum topic.
Here is the ticket i opened in the tracker:

Noni added a topic in Product FeedbackInvite members to topics!Here it goes, a great idea which might have been discussed already
Right now, the forum is great to meet new people, to talk about everything.
The thing is, i want to talk to already known people which may or may not visit the forum daily, which also may or may not follow any topcis/sections/forums (they actually don;t follow anything unfortunately)
Now, the easiest way to meet with them and talk about anything (for example a motorcycle ride in the weekend) is as it follows:
- the last option would be the forum
I want to make the forum the first option. Although me and my friends are all motorcycle passionates, it's only me that actually plans and discusses things over the forum. They could do that too, share their experience with others... etc.
The only thing that drives them away from writing on the forum is that they cannot invite their already known friends to talk over on the forum.
If i could create a topic, and invite them to the discussion (via email, or member names) i believe the forum could be a lot more popular than facebook, group email and stuff like that.
They could also get notified automatically whenever a new post is made in the topic they were invited. Also, they should have the ability to stop notifications from that topic from one link in the email they get.
What do you think?

Noni added a topic in Product FeedbackReply to PM directly from email notifications and Unsubscribe link1st
Although members get an email notification in which a text is written with CAPS LOCK something like this: "Please do not reply to this email directly, but login on the board and respond to the pm"... etc. they still respond directly to the email.
Now, as i have all IPS apps installed including Nexus, i get these member replies as support tickets. This is not bothering me, but i do think it would be a great thing to let members respond directly to messages from email.
Members might get notifications for various reasons as well as newsletters (bulk email)
I think that 2 kind of links should be added to the emails sent from the board:
a) when sending newsletters (bulk email) an unsubscribe link should be automatically included. This link should automatically unsubscribe members from further bulk email automatically. Now they have to login, find that box in their notification panel and uncheck it. Now that's something that none of my mebers seems to like. They rather report the email as spam if they cannot unsubscribe with one click.
b) When it comes to notifications, 2 more links should be included in the email: Stop all notifications or stop notifications from this topic, gallery album.. whatever.
Maybe just adding "Stop ALL notifications from from" would do it.
