  1. I'm 100% in favor for this. I would prefer an IPS made app. Just because I think it can be polished and would like IPS support, but since it's not something in the works I'll probably jump for one of the custom apps. FACT: New members don't like navigating forums. I can understand that. It's a hassle, especially with multiple apps. Most people like to scroll brainlessly until something catches their eye - just like watching TV. That's the way it works. The way users find new information to interact with currently is far inferior to the vast majority of users. Most of my members have never seen, used, or understand the View New Content button. If it isn't intuitive within three seconds and one page load, your potential new members are probably going back into their facebook groups to discuss your topic. Not that I believe we should cater to everyone, but I think it's something that should be thought about in these times. Some communities have different needs, and a feed among other social-y things would broaden the IPS customer base quite a bit I imagine. edit: Just to be clear, I think users should be able to directly reply to threads on the feed, blog entries, and possibly create new topics from this feed. Expanding divs "See more" to accommodate long content, the option to set the feed as the default community / log-in page, and the whole enchilada. I'll pre-pay for mine. :D
  2. IPS 4.0: Editor - Part 4: Special Features

    I'm hoping the @mention feature will work across all apps. 
  3. Black Friday and Cyber Monday Promotion

    I just received my invoice today. :(
  4. Black Friday and Cyber Monday Promotion

      Thanks m@t. That's my problem, finding the renew option. :D
  5. Black Friday and Cyber Monday Promotion

      Sorry if this is a silly question, but how can I renew IP Board using the code. I do not have a pending invoice in my client area, and don't see where else to renew.    Thanks!
  6. I notice when I import a blog through RSS I am not automatically following the blog, and entries. But, when I create a local blog I am automatically following the blog and all entries. This causes an issue with notifications. I never receive any notifications when a comment is placed on one of my RSS blog entries. My suggestion is to mimic the settings and notifications of a local blog for the RSS imported blogs.
  7. The Future Of IPB Blog ( 4.0 )

    Another feature that would be nice is allowing admin to make certain blog categories through ACP. This way members could select what category their blog should be place in when creating it and editing their settings. And then a sidebar hook on the blogs page to allow members to sort blogs by a specific category. I believe IP gallery has something similar, but i'm not 100% positive as I do not use it. And as far as I know IP Blog does not have this feature, but I may have missed it, so please let me know if I did.
  8. The Future Of IPB Blog ( 4.0 )

    I am not an SEO expert, so I do not have any opinion on that specifically. But, I do notice my Wordpress blog gets better rankings than IP. Like I said I'm not an SEO expert, so I do not know how to improve, but based on personal findings, Wordpress seems to rank better. I did have a difficult time finding where to add a meta title and description in ACP for IP Blog, though. Maybe this could be a little easier?
  9. The Future Of IPB Blog ( 4.0 )

    I agree, SEO could be improved. My main suggestions for IP Blog Better notifications Auto follow blogs I've replied to Easy customization SEO

    Awesome, thanks surferboy!
  11. IP Blog Suggestions

    Another: Adding announcements to the IP Blog homepage like you can do with the forum. This may be possible already, and I may have just missed it. If so, please let me know how to accomplish this. I've only had IP Blog for a few days.
  12. The Future Of IPB Blog ( 4.0 )

    I agree, this would be nice. If we are throwing suggestions out, I have a thread >here where I have outlined some suggestions.
  13. The Future Of IPB Blog ( 4.0 )

    Not sure what kind of features you are looking for. If you're looking for more notifications, there are a couple hooks in the marketplace. Notifications for likes: '?do=embed' frameborder='0' data-embedContent>> Notifications for comments/replies: '?do=embed' frameborder='0' data-embedContent>>
  14. IP Blog Suggestions

    Adding to the suggestions above: 1. Have a setting to disallow blog entry edits and deletions after a specific time. Similar to the setting in IP Board for forum topics. 2. Have a timeframe for featured entries. For example - an entry that is selected as "featured" will be featured for x amount of days.
