    I m going to add to this topic because this functionality is crucial for our sites too I was waiting since last october thinking that the reason the search members using custom fields was removed was because IPS was working on a better version but now I realize the option was simply removed. The current system does not allow our members to sort by which ones have a photo only (why was this removed?). I would also for example would like to find all the people living in my city (custom field) but I cant because the search does not allow this. I struggle to understand what could have been the reasons to remove these options in 4. I see that there is a memberlist mod that is being sort of crowdfunded. I may add $100 to it if Adriano can add filtering by custom fields but I really feel that there is no reason why this is not a default option when it had been one for so long. Please add back filtering members search with custom fields
  2. like the previous version was. There is no way to search by members who have a photo or from a custom profile field which is all our community is based on. Is anything being done or what is the reason why the custom profile fields do not show on the members search page? Do I need a custom mod for this? Why was this functionality removed?
  3. (BIM41) Required Info

    Just the plugin I needed. Great support and quick response time. The latest version also support HTML in the Custom Message which is nice  
  4. Activity Stream: make condensed view default?

    For me the analogy is the same as when you click on the Calendar and are shown the whole month...that is a condensed view because you start from a wide amount of data and then can drill down to the smaller. With a stream or timeline this would be similar to having a quick overview of the most amount of data WITHOUT details. This means titles and small attachments easily viewable with less amount of scrolling. Condensed view is more efficient because you go from simplified to detailled and not the opposite. Anyway the option to select which version you prefer should really be TRIVIAL in terms of adding that option to the ACP and I mean trivial in the sense that the functionality is there. You don t need to ask why people need it because if you don t understand that NOT seeing large attachments first is better than a simplified view with smaller attachments then it is difficult to explain the reason for the request. I for one would really like to be able to default as condensed and if IPB can not provide that
  5. A colleague of mine has been reading the IP.Blog page on the homepage and is asking where those features shown in the screenshots are?Will you update the Blogs app or update the promo page to reflect 4.0 instead of IP.Blog?At the moment it looks like the old version could have had multiple users for a single blog and that the current one does not...unless I missed somethingIs this now a permission issue where you need to create a group for that unique blog? Not sure I can do that with hundred of thousands of members wanting to create groups 
  6. instead of having to re upload the same cover every week. This create tons of copies for no reasonIf one cover is used for Italian Restaurant night for example, every week you reupload the same image over and overInstead we should be able to pick it from the uploaded images
  7. Search member based on custom profile field?

    ​yesWe use this for cities or long as the data is not private you can filter for it in the left sidebar when you go to the member page in the search
  8. ACP Design Feedback

    Well spank me silly and call me shirley!! the &*^* did I miss that
  9. ACP Design Feedback

    Any chances you could make an option to ALWAYS display the second level of the ACP menuIt is really really irritating to always have the second menu above the members or other pages...appearing and disapearing when you are going from screens to screensAlso there is no way to tell where you are besides the title of the page...but where is the CALENDAR page I am looking at under? Is it under System? Application? (not a question just an example). With the second menu always there you would be able to tell where you are and in the case of the members page you would not have that menu hover above the names or the content of the right frame/table/pageI would really really love to have and option to make it sticky and not hoverI know you are trying to gain space but it is more annoying than helpingSince the width is 100% it really does not save a lot of space to always have the second menu showing imo
  10. Bitcoins

    Again we are not talking about burning a house or the currency just like we are not talking about dropping bills into acidThe point is that once the money is into a bank account in the US it is insured and guaranteed which gives confidence to people with accounts that their currency is not in dangerThat money is swappable for any other currency or goods anywhere in the world when traveling...bitcoins are not unless you think that you can buy a baguette in south of France in a farmers market with it?Hey if you want to put your savings into bitcoins then go for it, but until banks accept and exchange bitcoins and the 20 different variations and other crypto currencies out there it will remain a fad. A fad that in one year alone the value went from $1000 to $230, and that is a problem because it is completely unstable and uncontrolled.Just look at this that a currency you would want to put your money into? I like the idea of an annonymous currency but I am also a realist

  12. Are web forums in general on the way out?

    If you are asking if online discussions are on the way out then no quite the contraryThe format classic forums may be on the way out and move more towards a reddit style of discussions
  13. Bitcoins

    Is the dollar backed up by anything? yes under $250.000 your money is insured by the government. It is not backed by a physical commodityWhen I said backed I meant insured and protected. You can exchange a dollar bill in any country anywhere in the worldYou can NOT do this with bitcoins as everything is virtual. You have no proof of your ownership of the value if there is no electricityIf the internet was destroyed you could still produce and use dollar bills...that is the problem with bitcoins as it is only virtual
  14. Bitcoins

    I don t get people who still believe in Bitcoins...I just don t get it. It is not backed by anything and is just a virtual crypto currency
  15. Great errors and flawless upgrade
