  1. IPS Navigation Menu Feedback

    To me a fixed navbar at the top of a page should not get in the way if coded properly. That must have been just a bad plugin, as you say Are we talking about the same thing? https://cloud.google.com/ What's wrong with how they have done it?
  2. IPS Navigation Menu Feedback

    May I ask Why? Just out of curiosity.
  3. I don't believe the Commerce app has been properly optimised to manage membership subscriptions. It works adequately but on closer inspection many flaws can be found. It seems crazy to me as I would expect many users to have a subscription model in place. I must be wrong as IPS don't seem to prioritise that app at all. Sometimes I feel I'm the only person using the app
  4. Here is a scenario: Step 1. A new user clicks "sign up". Step 2. They are shown items they can purchase. They add one to the cart and click "continue to registration". (ok so far) Step 3. They are taken to a page displaying the cart with the selection they just made and are shown two options: "continue shopping" & "check out" . We went from "continue to registration" to this page? Ok, I guess this step can be useful if they change their mind about what they want in the cart. However, it would be far more practical to deal with this during the previous step. (Let's assume the user then clicks "check out") Step 4: Next, they are taken to this page: WHAT? We have already established they are a new member! So, now they have to click on "Continue as New Member". In summary (current process): Sign up -> Add to cart -> continue to registration -> check out -> continue as new member -> complete forms When it could (should) be: Sign up -> Add to cart -> continue to registration -> complete forms New users should be able to see and manage the cart on the opening sign up page where they make their store item selections. Then when they click "continue to registration", we know they are ready and just go straight to the form! Sorry to go on a bit, but to me a new users sign up experience is so important this needs to be looked at. I hope you take these suggestions on board. Thank you.
  5. I want to sell two membership options. Currently, I can't prevent someone from adding both to the cart and purchasing them at the same time. Of course, It's unlikely a user will do that, but why not allow for that setting. I'm sure there may be other scenarios where you might want a user to purchase either one product or another. (especially ones that move users to a new member group)
  6. When all the items inside a group are hidden from a user in the store, the group itself should be hidden as well. Or at the very least give me the option to hide the group from the user. So, if I have a group called "t-shirts"" and I hide all the items inside that group from guests. They still see the "t-shirt" group in the store, but if they click it, it's empty. An alternative is to enable us to leave a custom message such as "Register to see our t-shirts".
  7. Notification button on mobile

    Putting the search button there wouldn't work well with how it's currently designed. As the search interface appears outside the "hamburger" menu.
  8. Notification button on mobile

    I suppose, ultimately, making it customisable might be the best option. Offer the ability to decide what icons are show on the from and which are shown in the nav pane. For instance, someone might feel that "unread content" is less important than "notifications" and might want them swapped. I imagine adding that functionality is easier said than done. Tough job trying to please everyone
  9. Custom Notifications

    Fantastic app! And with the new internal API functionality you can create custom notifications for practically any situation. Highly recommend.
  10. That does seem like a big flaw.
  11. I would like to suggest two aesthetic improvements to the Commerce checkout page. 1. The first one is when a card is already saved to a member's account. Currently, when a customer hits the checkout page this is what they see: In my opinion, it would be better if a) the saved card was ticked by default and b) the form to input the card details is hidden until the customer selects "Use new card". Then the form should appear. Like this: I think this would be better because, a) the customer should be encouraged to use the saved card (you see this on sites like amazon, where they assume you want to use your saved card) and more importantly b) if a customer has selected the saved card, it can be a bit confusing why a form is showing. 2. My second suggestion relates to the mobile view. Currently the 'order review' segment appears below the "place your order" segment: This order doesn't make sense logically. You review and then place your order. I would like to finish by saying what a great job you have done with the Commerce app in general. Keep up the good work! I hope you take these suggestions on board
  12. It would be nice to have the option of creating support departments, which only certain member groups can have access to. So for example, if a member upgrades his membership to premium, he then has access to the premium support department when making a ticket.
  13. Why don't we have this?

    XenForo are like a VCR company. Great for people who want to use outdated technology.
  14. I've been asking for this for a while now. My advice is don't hold your breath.
  15. IP.Board 3.4 End of Support

    Let's hope they manage to finish publishing guides for IPS4 before IPB3 EOL.
