    Set Article Image as og:image
    When liking an article from the facebook like button on the article page, Facebook does not grab the article image. Please set the article image as the og:image in the Open Graph meta for the page. Thanks!

  3. gxgEric added a post in a topic Allow to choose a search result template for databases   

    Yes! If anything, at least allow us to hide the content from being displayed and allow us to simply display the title with published date for each result.

    Alright, that is great to read. However, I would still like to see the category names removed from the record URL and to allow the article URL to remain the same when changing the title. Please consider these ideas. Thanks!

    I believe it does, but if you rename it a second time then that original redirect is lost. Regardless of any redirect, the social share counts are lost when the URL changes.

    Article Title and URL
    When changing the article title, please do not change the article's URL by default. Instead of automatically changing the article URL when the title is updated, please give us the option to have it updated.

    As is, changing the article's URL for a page that has built up incoming link juice and share counts can all be lost when simply changing the title of the article. This sucks. =/

    User Block Customization
    This might be a wild suggestion, but I thought about an idea where the user could reposition blocks and create their own blocks within the IP.Content system (non-admins, standard users). I imagine a system where users could customize their own IP.Content views - such as the homepage for example.

    Is this a practical idea?

    Regarding the URL issue, why just remove the categorizing from the URL? Forum threads dont have the forum title in the URL, just the topic. This is great too when you need to move a topic from one forum to another, as the URL does not change and all the juice it built up doesn't get lost (facebook likes, google +1, backlinks, etc). At least give us the option to do this.

    Regarding tags, you cant template tags results pages. Maybe add this feature too?

    I don't want to use tags, I want the ability to put an article in multiple categories. There is a big difference.

    Here is a real example:
    A group called Swedish House Mafia just announced their final performance will be at Ultra Music Festival in 2013. We organize all articles regarding Swedish House Mafia in our 'Progressive House' category. But we also have a 'Ultra Music Festival' sub category under the parent 'Festivals' category. For this news to be easily discoverable and properly organized, I need to be able to organize it under both 'Progressive House' and 'Ultra Music Festival' categories.

    Unfortuantely, I run into this scenario on almost a daily basis. I really need to be able to organize an article within multiple categories.

    Yes, we need this!
  13. gxgEric added a post in a topic Suggestion: Article Publishing Workflows   

    At this point, a user has to have moderation permissions in order to access unpublished articles they have already submitted. This is extremely frustrating for a multi-author IP.Content setup.
  14. gxgEric added a post in a topic Mobile skin?   

    This really seems old fashioned. Why not just make the entire default template responsive?

    I am assuming this is for transactional emails only right?
