I'm just ready for my license. I'm very close to having the money for it. Gotta do some more web design work for people first.

Yeah, I'd love to see some implementation of social logins (Facebook/Twitter primarily). If adding Twitter we could even integrate a twitter plugin to relay the users feed to their profile.

SirDude, when will you update the 7.6 changelog thread so we have a look at what has been changed, updated, etc.?

Please put API definition in the first priority.
Please DO NOT build-in any 3rd party login system.

With API , every 3rd party login system is possible.
Everyone can implement his/her FB/twitter login system.

I suggest define an OAuth-like authorization system.



English is not my native language.
I try my best to express my thought precisely.
I hope you understand what I mean.
If any misunderstanding results from culture gaps , I apologize first.

I'm sorry it has taken me so long to start posting where we're headed.

It really takes a lot of just offline brain games for me allow things to settle..

THEN it takes time to distill my thoughts into a cogent post or two or three laugh

for all you people who've asked for beta access, i haven't forgotten you either.

i just want to find the best way to do it.

for example: there are certain features that when done, might even be released HERE / LIVE for everyone to see / play with.

i know for certain, that the search feature as installed here is broken ( try advanced search and see laugh )

so i see no reason to _NOT_ both fix it and release the new version here..

so in a way, you are all guinea pigs for certain features as they are deemed solid...

wink

Something that jumped off the list at me: Adding users to an existing private topic opens a wide gamut of privacy concerns.

I would never ever post to or even read a private topic if I knew that another person could be added afterwards.

I agree 100%, the only way I would think of liking it is if only the person who created the topic can add, a notification in the pm was made that xxxx was added, and the newly added cannot look back through the topic.

by the time 7.7 feature set is solid, this can probably be decided to add or discard.

i was spitballing, based upon requests for it in the past.

so, i guess there needs to be back/forth on the issue, which is fine with me wink

_NOT_ adding it is much easier anyway laugh

edit: i can think of a case that would not present an issue. person creates a PM.. adds 5 users to it.. hits send...

then does a face palm and wants to make it 6 users.. he's screwed.. so there are times when it would be desireable. and not broach any privacy concerns

I'd like to see it added, however only the original author can add to it... Perhaps add a check to see how many posts are in the topic and if more than a few it won't allow?

we're adding other things to 7.6 as well wink

I would certainly welcome finer grained control of the sidebars but I understand that might be a fairly large request.

As far as sidebars I would like to see perms applied for reg and guest to at least active topics and posts. Some communities want people to be registered before displaying certain forums. The active topics and posts ignore perms and there for become useless for sites that need that.

I definately agree that I don't think I like the add a person to a private topic, but I really do like the idea of what gliderdad has said there. It is a pita for me if I want to use that because half of my forums are restricted to all but about 10 people. So I can't really use the active topic discussion one..

Personally, I find the ability to add people very handy at times. You shouldn't be discussing things with someone anyway if you think there is a possibility that person might add the name of someone you're gabbing about. In my opinion it should be left, but changed so that you can disable or enable it to your own likes. Why take something away that another uses all the time? I used it quite frequently to discuss different ideas of what I want to do with the forums and only want a certain few to know about it in the early stages. Much easier than created yet another "admin" or "moderator" type group for only a couple of people. Just my 2 cents worth.

Forums:

A forum can be created that is a LINK forum.

This means that there is no real content inside that forum, but the forum name serves to link to whatever URL has been defined.

Additionally, prior to actually taking the user to the destination, a hit is logged to the DB to count 'redirects' for forum display ( cfrm ) purposes


If I understand you correctly Sirdude, when you click on the defined URL it will take you to that forum page containing the defined website, a kind of implementation of a browser engine which allows you to display the URL within the forum post. If not then could this be something that could be added to your 7.6 list.......

"Searching will allow by topic only or by body only, but not both"

>> Don't see the real reason. If it's speed-related then why not add as info "this will cause a slow search"


"since people rarely change the subject or the posting icon"

>> Indeed, we even edit that feature out. Would it be possible to make these items optional? Also as standard, even when removing ALL icons from the CP, you always have the option of a blank or the book.gif. It'd be nice to actually be able to limit to one single icon (and then not show the choice). (It's just we don't want a christmas tree forum.)


Oh and... good luck executing those plans in the time frame you've set yourselves. I would be extremely impressed.

I would love the opportunity to disable .sigs for newbies, at least until they've had a certain number of posts. Then at least the spammers will have to post actual spam in their posts, not secretly in their .sigs.

That is possible already.

With site permissions you can set the maximum length of the signature, and you can upgrade them to a group when they reach a certain amount of posts that allows a signature.

SD, a few things on the SEO topic which I'm sure you have on your list but I'm going to repeat them anyways are the use of rel canonical tags and missing meta descriptions. I'm not sure how to handle the later on multiple pages. Might need to see how the other modern boards handle this.

I also think that trying to mod_rewrite the urls so they are shorter, maybe sans the ubbthreads.php/topics would be wise too, as a lot of attention is going into shorter semantic urls.

"Previous Management" (ala Groupee) deemed that it had to stay "ubbthreads.php" for "brand awareness"... I'm not sure how current ownership feels about that however...

I'm not sure what the right answer to this is, but I'd like to be able to drilldown pages by forum in GA. Since the forum is neither in either the title or url it's not possible to do this.

I think adding a GA section in the admin would be nice. I believe one way of doing this is with custom variables. You could have the variable change by forum. You could also have a variable for logged in and logged out. Then do all the analysis with custom segments.

I know this seems like a lot of hokus pokus but the reality is for a large forum with a lot of different traffic sources these analysis can be useful.

Maybe I can do this as a plugin. SD?

well, it will probably have to be optioned

some peeps love their perceived SEO, based upon pre-crawled uri's

soooooo... i'm all for hiding it ala the way wordpress and MANY sites now do.. but there may be those who want to hold on to the old way for dear life too
