  1. +1 for discount on renewals. I have three inactive licences which I was thinking of renewing, only to find out the 15% discount doesn't work
  2. Will these betas be easily upgradeable to to later betas and 3.3 final ? One thing I'd like to see: 1) Import/Export IPBoard settings, so if I do a fresh install of IPB, I can quickly import existing settings, without the need to go through customising the options.
  3. test code tag. Is there an tag parameter or ACP setting where the number of visible lines in code/quote tags can be configured, with a scrollbar also being displayed if the content contains more lines than this ? phpbb 3 shows thirteen lines in a code tag. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0
  4. I've requested this a couple of times in the past, but it would be useful if the user could choose whether they want search results shown as Posts or Topic list from the drop-down menu to the right of the Search box at the top right. Fingers crossed that it can be slipped in for 3.2.0 final (or 3.2.1).
  5. Can you add built-in support for FastSpring payment gateway. I know it can be manually added, but it would be nice if it was built-in.
  6. For the password field hint (ie. the grey text that says "Between 3 and 32 characters"), can you also hint as to whether characters other than letters and numbers are allowed. Many times when joining various sites have I tried to use other characters, like higher ASCII, brackets, symbols like, @!"£$%^&*, only to be told the passwords don't match (as some chars aren't allowed and seem to be silently stripped which affects the validation routine.) - It's very annoying. Alternatively, if most chars are accepted, just list the chars which aren't allowed. Just poticed while typing this reply that no cursor is visible in the reply field. I'm using Firefox 3.6.15 on Winbdows 7. Is this a bug ? Maybe related to the possible bug above, the other thing I'd like to see is the username/e-mail address editbox field automatically become active when signing in (ie. cursor should be flashing, so any input will go to that field).
  7. Following on from my bug report, which wasn't actually a bug (ie. working as intended), I would like to see polls changed so it's possible to view the results without casting a NULL vote when you haven't voted. If there's a need for the current behaviour (which seems odd and un-intuitive IMO), then an extra option is needed during poll creation. Please post a reply if you support this proposed change, as it's more likely to happen if many people want it.
  8. I was checking out the ImgBurn forum at http://forum.imgburn.com/ , and from the main page, did a search for "Ask toolbar" (with surrounding quotes) in the search box at the top right of the page. It said there were 32 results, and indicated there were two pages, but the first page only shows 15 results and the second page has no results. Any idea why ? This is not my site, but as I use IPB I wanted to know if this was a bug in IPB 3.1.1 ?
  9. Couple of suggestions (one which I made a while back): 1) On notification e-mails, have the "The entry can be found here: <URL>" bit at the top of the e-mail rather than the bottom. Often, I will just want to view the entry online, and by having the link at the bottom forces the user to scroll down before they click on it. Given that it's only a couple of lines, whereas the actual entry can be many lines, I think it's prweferable to have it at the top. I know I can hack the source myself to simply move this up myself for my board, but I also subscribe to several IP Board's so would like a more global solution. 2) Similar to vBulletin forums, allow users to login from any page by having a Username and Password edit boxes, Remember me checkbox, and Login button on the top right of every page where the current "Sign In »" bit is, instead of forcing them to go to the login page. To keep the page clean, you could hide it and have a button which, when clicked, would show it without reloading the page.
  10. [quote name='AlexJ' date='22 March 2010 - 02:58 PM'] or "Show new replies to your topics". We really miss those 2 option, because in large forums it's hard to find OP thread back. All users on our forum want is to track their topics easily rather then looking to 50 new post in view new content. or way to save search prefs (preferably on server end with user data, so the user doesn't have to keep changing settings like show as posts/topics if the cookies get cleared). Also, for search box at top right of each page, the ability to specify show as posts or topics by having two radio buttons on a drop-down menu (eg. Search Section) would be useful (with it defaulting to the users saved search prefs - see above)
  11. That's excellent news! I need a simple bug tracker for people to report bugs about my products, but was always wary of using the mod which offered this functionality due to worries about security. Now, IPS will release their official bug tracker I am much more confident adding it to my site :)
