  1. "Requesting free project" exists as an option already.
  2. 4.0 Advanced Theming

      Just so folks are aware, there's an app I created in the Marketplace that makes it very easy for developers to do this, and will be updated for 4.0 as soon as possible:     I just wanted to throw this out there so as to prevent people from being discouraged that providing this update URL would be a complicated process for them.  With this app, you just enter in the details of your product in a UI in the Admin CP and it generates an update URL for you which you can provide with your product.  You can then update the info about your product in your site's Admin CP as needed and the URL will automatically return that there's an update available if necessary.
  3. AdSense Crawler

    More of an AdSense issue as opposed to an IP.Board issue: https://support.google.com/adsense/answer/161351?ctx=as2&rd=1
  4. Seems like overkill to me personally, I've never had an issue where I needed to limit the number of videos on a page though.
  5. The memberSync extensions already do all of this stuff. Every IPS app has one with the exception of Chat, which has no use for it. When you delete a member's account, the onDelete function in every application's memberSync file will execute and either delete the associated content or mark it unapproved, or something similar.
  6. File archive - is thar possible ?

    Do you mean like the Downloads app? http://www.invisionpower.com/apps/downloads/
  7. Searching on Forums is totally unreliable

    If the issue is that you can't search for something with three letters, and the Sphinx search IP.Board provides fixes that, then what is the need for some 'advanced' Sphinx search? And even without Sphinx in the picture at all, this can be taken care of with the same MySQL tweak that's been around for years. OK, if there are other search engine integrations that could be added, great, every other new option helps, but there are already two readily workable options now. Perhaps you could share some other examples of these other search engines that could be integrated? But I doubt there are too many folks who need three letter searching and can't use one of the existing options.
  8. Searching on Forums is totally unreliable

    As most folks said in this topic, it's not an issue that's due to IP.Board, it is a MySQL limitation. Thus, there's not much of anything IPS can do to 'fix' this for 4.0 apart from providing clear instructions on how to do things like tweak your MySQL configuration or how to use alternate search engines like Sphinx (both of which they already do).
  9. Marketplace access to prevent piracy...

    Yes, doing those are things we as developers can do to our products to help reduce piracy. But customers hate that. It gives them extra hoops they need to jump through to install such products, as they need to ensure their server has the capacity to run such encoded scripts. If it is encoded to protect some licensing system that runs a call back to the developer's site and that developer's site is down then the user is stuck and can't complete the installation process. And lots of customers are just downright distrustful of installing something that gives them no way to tinker with the code or check for malicious code. Piracy sucks, but it's inevitable. It's better to make products that are as user-friendly as possible for all legitimate clients and accept that some people are just never going to use them legitimately, rather than make them hard for everyone to use.
  10. 4.0 - Introducing the new AdminCP

      This has already been discussed here: http://community.invisionpower.com/blog/4445/entry-9557-40-rethinking-xml-handling/
  11. Important Topics & Announcements

    No, both are built-in. Announcements are called just that, and can be created in the ModeratorCP. Important topics are called Pinned topics, and are created just like normal topics but you then have to choose to Pin the topic when you create it (or afterwards). Any announcements active in a given forum will show up first, followed by any pinned topics, then all of the other standard topics.
  12. IP.Board 4.0 Wishlist

    There have been a ton of updates about what's coming in 4.0 here: '?do=embed' frameborder='0' data-embedContent>>
  13. Report Piracy For Apniworld.com

    You can report piracy to IPS using this form: http://www.invisionpower.com/legal/piracy For any other issues about other sites hacking you, you should address them to IPS through a ticket in your client area rather than posting such accusations publicly.
  14. Option to center root category heading text

    You can already skin it that way if you want. The purpose of the Look & Feel section of the Admin CP is to give you the ability to re-style the things you want so that they'll look the way you want them to.
  15. Auto-Link of terms
