    Marketplace Side Bar - My Purchases
    It would be nice if there was a Widget on the right side of the Marketplace that showed me a listing of My Purchases and ranked by last update ( version not comments ) so that you don't have to hunt them down. - Since none of the apps i've purchased seem to work with the Update check via the ACP, and some like themes most likely won't ever have update notifications this way.

    Correct and this has been a long time suggestion and find it sad that its still not native since this functionality already exists in the blogs and in the pages CMS. - I have never wanted to create a post and have it "locked" and then "unlock" at a given time - however I have always wanted a way for people to post things that perhaps embargoed for a certain go live date. I hate having to get up at 6am because something has to publish at 9AM Eastern time.

    don't use the "Global" ads just use a custom location then use a block to assign what pages you want ads to display.
    search my post history I had made a comment on what I did.

    Notification Mute?
    is there a quick way to MUTE notifications (via email) without flipping a bunch of switches and just MUTE these notices when on vacation or (in the hospital) and a quick link in the EMAIL to quickly mute the post until some date. 
    it never fails when I am away from normal schedule some topics that I follow gets very chatty.

    Install / Upload interface
    It's a subtle thing but it would be nice if there was a bit of consistency. 
    Like when instilling an app/plugin/theme to use the drag and drop interface ( probably with out the file size limitations )

    vs the old school "choose file" button.

    Paid File Settings should be a Category Level Setting
    It would be nice if the payouts could be different each category

    ooh also - block management staging area. 
    so you can prepare different block arrangements and see how they look before making live, or set them go live (or expire) at a certain date & time.

    Commerce > Ads by keyword: please make a widget - (currently have to create a block in pages tied to the keyword )
    (options: max number of ads to display - orientation: stacked / racked / random )In fact I would love to see Blocks (widgets) be decoupled from Pages and be its stand alone 1st class citizen app. 
    At the very least allow custom blocks to show up at the first level hierarchy when using block management, not buried under Pages. - If you spent  time to add a descriptive blurb about the block - it was a waste of time because that is not currently visible from the block manager, nor informative to select users who may have rights to modify blocks but have to guess what they do (because there is no description) 
  10. Ocean West added a post in a topic IPB version on this site   

    I think it's a better security measure not to list the version number on the site footer for just anyone to see - as security patches are released a site admin may be traveling and can't instantly update the site. It's an open invitation to exploit vulnerabilities to a site that has not been updated / patched.

    Start New Topic Button (IOS / Responsive)
    When on IOS in a forum or on a computer with the screen small mobile device the "Start New Topic" button is at the bottom of the screen. 
    That button should be at the top (and bottom) when responsive. 
    Just Like the Start New Topic Button when looking at the forum index.

    Alternative to Redirect Links as Forums
    They are kind of a relic and had their purpose; in a pinch to redirect someone to another page / internally or externally. I am feeling that there needs to be a better alternative to forum as links.
    they take up a lot of space (especially if you have more then one )they break continuity in the index as a sub forum they take up a lot of spaceWhen a forum has been marked as read their icon never dims.They don't open in new window/tab without a hook/plugin Pros:
    they count clicksobserve permission matrixWould like some way to add one or more "links" to a url that is tied to a specific forum / category - That visually appears as a link / button or something that doesn't waste a lot of space, and provides the ability to track counts and allow the target link to open in the same window or a new tab/window. Also be included in the permission matrix as to who will see the links.
