  1. Dude, love your profile pic!  Takes me back to the days of Adventure, Yar's Revenge, and the Imagic cartridge games like Demon Attack! :lol:

  2. He wants to be able to perform the search without having to enter a search term or tag. In IP.Board 3.4, you can view a member's posts in this fashion, while applying additional criteria if need be. Without having to enter a search term. This is extremely useful, and I perform searches like this routinely on my forum. ..Al
  3. @AndyF, thanks for the history lesson. You're correct, there is an "Archive Conversation" link wedged between the conversation and quick reply windows on my 3.4.x forum. I don't believe I've ever used it. Just tried it, and sure enough it emailed an HTML version of a conversation to me. Could use some nicer styling, but something similar to that functionality would be nice to have built into 4.x. A third-party plugin could offer a more advanced archive feature (for instance, choosing the type of file that's generated, maybe some style options, etc.) Funny that I still get asked about this even though it's right there.
  4. Doesn't have to be a PDF, per se, even a nicely formatted HTML/CSS version you could open up in your browser directly (and then print if you'd like) would be nice. It's been some time since I've looked at PDF-generation libraries, so I have no idea how mature they are. Although at this point I'd hope they have evolved into something useful. ..Al
  5. I get requests for this all the time on my forum. Even though I have a pretty fair limit on PMs (I think 500 conversations? and considerably more if you're a subscriber), people still want to save important conversations. Especially larger conversations that might run for a year or more, with many participants. And we have many programmers on our forum developing projects through PMs, so there's often a need to save these conversations because they contain considerable technical information. Being able to archive conversations (such as downloading a nicely formatted PDF) would be ideal and a very welcome feature. I'd upvote this more than once if I could. ..Al I don't see any way to do this in my 3.4.x forum. I think I did have a third-party hook installed at one time that allowed you to download an HTML version of a conversation, which saved you from having to save each page separately, but I no longer have that installed. Probably was abandoned and broke in some newer version of IP.Board. At any rate, should be a built-in feature, in my opinion. ..Al Man, I really hate the "auto merge posts together" feature.
  6. Seconded, I get frequent requests from members asking how they can save a conversation. People setup large conversations with many people that can run for a long time, and there's no way way archive those conversations. ..Al
  7. This is an important feature for my site as well, as I regularly need to look through someone's posting history without having to enter a specific tag or keyword.
  8. This is a critical feature for my forum. We have three million posts spanning 15 years, and I often need to see all of a member's posts without a specific keyword or tag. Please remove the requirement of a keyword or tag in order to perform the search by Author. I'm not yet on 4.x, although I'm slowing marching towards it. I didn't realize this functionality had changed. Thanks!
  9. Really IPB...THIS SEARCH SxCKS !!!!

    I'm with you 100%, poor search results have always been a pet peeve of mine. I'm running Sphinx on my 3.x forum, and I've been holding off on upgrading to 4.x until this issue is resolved. It's bad enough on this forum that I often have to go to resort to Google to try and find topics. I don't want members to have to do the same on my forum.
  10. Video: 4.2 So Far

    Interesting, thanks Adriano! I hadn't seen that before.
  11. Video: 4.2 So Far

    Thanks for the video. I'm curious, what is the "Copy to Database" item in the topic moderation menu?
  12. New: Device Management

    I feel that given all the other work already done, a page to detail users sharing devices (as described in my first comment) should be built into IP.Board, versus a third-party add-on.
  13. New: Device Management

    Please read my first comment -- I hope Invision adds an Admin page that shows all devices being used with multiple accounts, as that'll be extremely useful. Otherwise the only way you're going to see if someone is using multiple accounts on the same device is if you happen to look at their account in the admin panel for some reason.
  14. New: Device Management

    The last bit about showing multiple users sharing the same device is very important to me as an admin. Very nice addition! If you can take this one step further and create a page that shows ALL devices with multiple users, that would be an extremely useful report. This allows you to more easily catch people creating multiple accounts, especially handy to help catch trolls who are trying to evade a ban. Thank you!
  15. New: Delayed Deletes

    Yes, that's extremely useful on Facebook pages, so I'd love to see that as a feature in the forum.
