  1. Newsletters

      Agreed...bounce management is the biggest issue in sending our bulk mails.  I'd be all over this if it could handle bounces.  I would recommend this logic:  If they have no posts and haven't purchased anything from your store, simply delete them.  If they've posted or purchased and then bounced, flag them in a report for review.
  2. Please, Make the Reputation System stand out!

    I love the sound of what you've done with the rep system. Can you share the details of how to implement? I'm running the latest ipb version.
  3. Mobile skin needs some improvement

    Hopefully a IP.Content mobile skin is as well.
  4. Users Forum Posts in My Media Button

    Yes, even if you could search for your own topics from within the "My Media" button while composing a new topic....that would indeed be nice. Versus, new tab or browser window...go find my post I want to reference, grab the link.
  5. Wouldn't it be nice to include a user's list of forum posts to the "My Media" button for easy reference to questions that they've answered before? Seems like a natural fit for the purpose of the "My Media" button.
  6. Enabling CK Editor Features

    Matt, I'm not sure I understand this part. I use CSS to style tables inserted with HTML in IP.Content. Wouldn't the CKEditor just generate the HTML for me? I can style the table via CSS. I tend to work more in HTML mode, so if I can activate tables and have it work.....please tell me how. Did you see my topic in the first post? What am I missing?
  7. Enabling CK Editor Features

    I want to post a link to a discussion in hopes that one of the developers will take this on: http://community.invisionpower.com/topic/344798-just-want-to-add-tables-to-ckeditor We've got a full featured editor available in IPB....but we'd like to be able to enable some advanced features while keeping the IPB modifications. Anyone solved this yet? Anyone willing to take this on? You can see what we've done and I think that we're close. We just need some help getting over the hump. Thanks, Chris
  8. [REQ] Email bounce management

    Brandon, As IPS has become software that folks can use to run their entire website (like I'll be doing), I think that this issue is becoming more and more important. I've been processing bouncing emails manually for some time using an excel spreadsheet to build SQL to remove the users from the two tables where the member data is stored. I used to use a script called ListMail Pro which was really good. It had the user set up an email account to receive bounces and then the bounces were processed via cron daily. I know that this issue has come up several times and I think that it's likely to continue. With the text editor being upgraded in 3.2, my climbing up the IP.Content learning curve, and getting IP.Downloads set up, this is really the last major piece of the puzzle in making IPS a great product to manage an entire website. Like IPS did with the text editor, is there a third party solution that could be made to bolt onto IPS?
  9. Emailed Attachments

    I've been thinking for some time about any way to make it easier for my forum members to get drawings and photos attached to posts. Now, with most people having a smartphone, wouldn't it be cool if people could snap a picture of a sketch or anything else and easily attach it to their posts? I love the way I can take a photo on my phone and email it to Picasa for example. Is there a reasonable way to implement something like this? It seems complicated for a system installed on many different servers (every member would have to have a custom email address that piped to a IP php script?) Seems like as long as the attachments have to obey the allowed attachments rules, any security risks could be managed well enough. I really wouldn't want the attachments hosted somewhere else with link though...I don't want to be managing broken links forever. Thoughts?
  10. IP.Content Block Inserts

    O.K., now I've actually tried to do this. I have some ad code that has to be placed in the body of articles on a per article basis (sometimes there are images to work around, so I can't drop it into the template). The code that I need to insert contains a javascript inside a simple HTML table. I tried to make a BBCode and have it call a php file which I properly located. I used a simple "Print" statement in the php file and escaped all of the other quotations in the code that I supplied. When I checked the parser, I just got the name of the bbcode. I put the bbcode in an article and it showed the name of the bbcode,BUT is also threw some header errors at the top of the page. Any further advice. Previous I was using simple virtual includes on shtml pages, but now I'm having problems getting around the parsing in IP.Content. Sample file anyone? The PHP file would be structured like this: HTML (define and opens a table) Multiline javascript HTML (closes table) Is it possible to do this with a BBCode and I'm just not getting the file right? The ad code is good as I've been using it for several years, I just need to get it out to the HTML on the page (exactly where I call it) and be able to edit it in one place. Any help would be appreciated.
  11. IP.Content Block Inserts

    Ah, set up a BB Code! That's easy enough! Thanks.
  12. IP.Content Block Inserts

    O.K., so is there another way to accomplish what I'm after? Can I put the block into the template and have the article contents wrap around it? You can see an example of what I'd like to do here: http://www.cheresources.com/compressor_surging_under_control.shtml See the ad just to the right of "Understanding Surge". That's an important location for ads (at least on my site).
  13. IP.Content Block Inserts

    I'm considering IP.Contet, but I have a question. In addition to all of the places that you place blocks in a template, can you also place a block inside the body of an article. My best performing ads on my site are those within the article content themselves. So, if I'm entering an article into the editor, will IP.Content read the {parse} tag and insert a block and wrap the content around it?
