  1. flaregun added a post in a topic 3.2 Suggestion - Google Analytics Goal Set up   

    I would love this as well.

    There really should be an option to tie in with the major marketing providers. At least Aweber, it's one of the most popular and has an API - https://labs.aweber.com/

    Custom Database with user submission?
    I want to create a custom database with matching display template - that part I can do it IP.content. But can you enable user-submissions for the custom database like the articles do? I'd want several fields, image upload, permissions, approval, etc.

    Is that possible with IP.content without having to use the articles db?

    Suggestion: Guest Polls
    There's no reason IPB shouldn't have guest voting as an option.

    I understand the cookie issue for serious voting, but for asking people questions like "What's your favorite color", voting fraud shouldn't be an issue. We aren't electing the president.

    Let's be honest, there are 20 lurkers for every member and getting them to vote helps build a relationship with the site. I really think you should look at adding guest voting (with the caveat that the results may be manipulated).

    Will downloads/Nexus let me do this?
    I'm building a marketplace of various files (mostly PDFs). I want to the user to be able to do the following:

    Ip.nexus as marketpace question
    I'm setting up a marketplace for users to browse, sort, etc. Some products would be purchased from us, while others would be affiliate programs that would need to compete purchase elsewhere.

    Can Nexus do this?

    I also would prefer to show this content in a specific directory structure/url, so I also wonder how that works with nexus

    Yeah, I don't run view-only forums, so I could hack the thread view code. I may try it later.

    That's my point - guests don't have the permissions, but instead of giving them a brick wall, the buttons should motivate them to register...

    Basically, guest should be shown buttons to register, members get the reply and start discussion buttons.

    Motivating guests to register
    Right now guests get the "You cannot reply to this topic" button when viewing the forum, but I think that is pointless - they don't know what to do.

    A better solution would be to have a button that says "Register to reply to this topic" with a link to registration page. That would drive more user registrations.

    How hard is this to implement?

    I'm interested in this as well, a way to reward the "super users".
  11. flaregun added a post in a topic Suggestion - Calendar event should have forum type reply topic structure   

    I too would love the ability for users to RSVP, have the event show on their profile, and publish the event comments in a forum. I also need the ability to import ical or XML into the calendar. If anybody finds a mod for these, please let me know.
  12. flaregun added a post in a topic My IP.content website   

    I like the site alot, you certainly pushed the integration.

    I'm looking to build out a CMS/content site built on IP.content. Did you code it all yourself? Did you get any freelance help?
    As I'm starting my project, I'd love any help on finding expert resources. I can code CSS/PHP/HTML, but still struggling with IP.content.
