    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)

    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.

    Need Date uploaded for Downloads
    when you have multiple files attached to a Download its' not obvious which file is the most "current" and there isn't much to prevent the filename to being identical of different attachments.
    What we need is a highlight on the CURRENT file at the top and then a list of "older files" all of these files need to include the Date Uploaded and the "version number" if provided.

    New Settings ( post updates )
    It would be nice that if there was a "dynamic section" in the ACP that would contain any new settings ( until you set them or dismiss them )

    Suggestion... File Upload / Download terms
    I like the new feature of 4.0.9. that has ability to limit file types. 
    In Downloads - when you submit a file you have a set of terms that the user must agree to - the same when downloading the file they are presented terms each time files are downloaded.
    I would like to see these things added to the rest of the suite with regards to Upload and Download Terms... with two other settings - days & downloads.
    ON or Off  - and Group Override0 | 0 would require every file download or upload to require user to agree to terms.# | # would be the less of the two Example every 5 downloads or if i haven't downloaded anything in 3 days.

  13. Ocean West added a post in a topic - Where list of members?   

    There is no front facing "Member List" in 4.0

    Admin login as user from user profile.
    There is just too many steps needed to login as user, I am on their page and then have to login to ACP then then find them again just to login as them.
