  1. I thought that was an option but I'm not able to find it in the Admin CP. Nevermind, I figured it out. Had to toggle the content type in the stream, and then set the exclusions.
  2. Oh. I really need to be able to mark a forum as "ignored" and then allow the users to decide if they want to see it in their activity streams or not.
  3. @Adriano Faria, Am I understanding correctly that the admin can set certain forums to be ignored, by default, for everyone? If so, I'll order immediately. Thanks!
  4. Correct. I know that sounds odd, but here's some context: On my community we have a Vendor program wherein commercial entities can post to promote their goods and services. When someone signs up as that, we have them create an account just for their business. So, Joe Smith might have a member account called JSMITH1972 or something like that, but we create a separate account called WHIZBANG GIZMOS that he posts all of his Vendor activities under. When Whizbang Gizmos advertising campaign expires, I want to be able to cut off its ability to respond to posts, create new posts, send PMs, etc. The only thing I want to give that account access to is the ability to renew its advertising through our Commerce section. JSMITH1972 can continue using the community as a member, as he always has, but under our Terms of Service cannot post commercially. Hope that makes sense. 🙂
  5. It would be very useful in the Commerce section of IPBoard, you could define which group you want to "return" the member to when their purchase benefits expire. Here's a scenario: Member is default member of Group ID 3, our registered members group. They decide to become an advertiser and purchase a package through our Commerce section. Purchasing the package places them in Group ID 4, which has certain elevated permissions and allows them to upload a banner advertisement. When the package expires, rather than IPBoard returning them back to Group ID 3 which can still reply to threads, send PMs, and otherwise carry on business behind the scenes without being an advertiser, I want to be able to send them to Group ID 5 which I've locked down from those abilities and which has reduced permissions on the community. The reason for this? Incentive to renew and expiration of their old content if they choose not to renew. A picture is worth a thousand words, right?
  6. I had purchased this add-on a while ago but held off implementing it until now. I am having a problem, though, where I cannot seem to get the application to display a map of the entry's location. Google Maps is enabled on my forum and works just fine for other things. I have added the extra "Address" field to Links Directory, but still nothing. What am I doing wrong?
  7. It sounds like they are hoping for API integration via Nexus? https://patreon.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/206525646-Does-Patreon-have-an-API-
  8. No, what I was asking is if you can look around in my IPB config and make sure that I didn't screw something up in the way that I have the Classifieds app configured.
  9. My users are still not receiving any email alerts from Classifieds and I switched to SendGrid and can confirm that it is delivering with a good degree of success for all other forum emails. Adriano, could I open a trouble-ticket and provide AdminCP access to allow you to look at my settings for me?
  10. Very good possibility. Thank you for bringing that up. I've toggled over to Send Grid based on other feedback I've received from some of my forum-hosting colleagues and so far it seems to be sending emails. I think you're right that the Classifieds emails were getting sent into an anti-spam black hole of some sort.
  11. My users claim that they aren't receiving email notifications about anything related to their Classifieds ads but that they are receiving other forum emails. I've checked and the Notification settings in the AdminCP are set to allow them to choose email as an option, and the ability to edit their settings is enabled as well. Email on my community is distributed through SparkPost. Any ideas?
  12. Thanks for adding the Guidelines feature to the current release!
  13. @Adriano Faria, as a possible suggestion: It would be nice if we could define a text block of "Guidelines" per category that are shown when a member opens the form to submit a new advertisement. Perhaps something like this, just a text block that the forum admin could enter the contents of.
    I began using the Classifieds app about two weeks ago on my community and the members really seem to love it. We're about 27,000 members strong and this app replaced several special-interest sub forums that we have used for the past 10 years allowing members to buy/sell/trade privately.
