IPB 2.2 Suggestions - Long List


Guest Luke

Recommended Posts

Alot of these ideas are great and should be considered, however I will only vote for one.

I think it would be most beneficial to have a feature on the warn panel to ban the user's ip address from the forums and of course along with their username.

Not sure if this has been mentioned but a lot of my members set a forum to be watched and then either change their e-mail or are never seen again! This results in me received miriads of returned e-mails bah!

I would like an admin option to control members individual settings! :rolleyes:

I forgot to include a suggestion that would help out people using the transaction system on IPB, on the "Manage Transactions", when you have a long list of subscriptions and theres a check box for each, I think you should have a check box at the very top that will select/deselect all of the subscriptions on that page, otherwise it takes awhole lot of time to click each one, especially when I have so many pages.

ban a user via warn panel



I agree 110% :whistle: Moderators should at least be able to set ONLY members ino the banned group via warn panel, same with admins it would make my life much much easier and i'm sure millions of other IPB users as well! Otherwise we will just have idiots deleting their cookies and re-registering to do the same crap all over again >_<

great suggestions!



want to add mine:



Ability to "Star" topics, much like Gmail's system!


Ability to add notes for each member for future reference


+1 just like saving them as your favorite topics or something

-Also, I think IPB should have "Edit Counter" when a user edits a post, count how many times they editted the post and show it :D

Something like

This post has been edited by Me: Today, Yesterday or w/e at 00:00 AM; 3 times in total

or something better?

Actually there is a way to do fast reply with ajax that wouldnt be so bad. When you hit submit it could check to see if your post will be on the same page you're posting, if any posts are before yours (or missing), or if any have changed and make the adjustments. If your post ends up on the next page, redirect the page (the normal way) to the page where your post will be. Basically you use ajax to make the post and update the page ONLY if the change is minute, and if it's big enough just redirect like normal.





Speaking of which I need to update soon. Will be something for me to do once I get things situated at home and work since I just moved...



Brandon you wanna use the mod center :ph34r: ? I can be reasonable ;)


I posted on a vb site not using ajax and it would say it was an invalid topic id, then I simply clicked the back button and reposted it in the same exact place and it worked fine. Also people dont receive some of my PM's on the vb site either.

That sounds like it's more to do with a poorly maintaned database rather than the use of AJAX.

My members, mods and/or I would love the following:

* Integrated spellcheck
* Favorites list (users add threads to their permanent favorites)
* Mods can see invisible members (this one is huge!)
* Not only make year optional for birthdays, but give admin the ability to make year/age invisible forum-wide. On a forum full of women of various ages, this one is important. ;)
* Automated Welcome/Birthday PMs
* Print a single post - one of the most earth-friendly mods I've seen, and very useful for "how to" type forums
* Admin ability to turn off avatar usage by usergroup
* Admin ability to restrict individual user's permission to have signature (for those who abuse it)
* Admin-set restrictions for signature graphic size, number of lines of text allowed w/o a graphic, number of lines of text allowed with a graphic, and a way to limit the number of lines of text based on text size - maybe a way for the admin to say 1 line of text at sizes 1 & 2 = 1 line of text, 1 line of text at sizes 3, 4, & 5 = 2 lines of text, and 1 line of text at text sizes 6 & 7 = 3 lines of text (to stop the smartasses who would have 10 lines of size 7 text)
* Ability to turn on "custom title" for individual users in addition to having it automatically triggered by post count
* Smilies by category (pull down menu) or some other way to organize a large smilie collection

i'm not sure if this was suggested already, but there are a lot of exploits out there that work by using PMs. I think that IPS should implement something in IPB to limit how many PMs can be sent by one person per minute/hour/day/week etc.

To minimize the attempts of hacking attempts, it might be safer to have an option NOT to save the member_login_key in the members table.
Just generate the login-key everytime...

This could be a setting in the CPU-saving option then. Up to the forum owners to decide to use it or not.
