  1. Exactly this. Well I hope so! Have IPB mentioned the future for mobile support?
  2. I've had an IPB forum for 15+ years, the largest community in Europe of its niche, 45,000 members, 2million+ posts thousands active daily in its peak. This was awesome in the desktop era but my forum has taken a decline and I'm not going to point fingers at social media here because I feel I can genuinely compete against them. It's the mobile compatibility that's killing my community. All these new features are great, Invision as a company is at its prime right now, I love the updates, the new features, the support and the articles! Please keep this up! 🙂 However, 70% of my visitors are on their damn mobiles. I know the struggle of mobile systems reducing what you can see on a screen and the functionality... but Invision, you need to be smarter! All these new features don't get a ray of light on your mobile theme. What's the point of gamification, post counts, promoted content, subscriptions, rank/member group promotions etc if members don't see or easily access them? 😞 It just acts as a guest book forum from early 2000. You see posts and you make posts. As I already said, you are pumping out some fantastic features but only to the minority of my audience and I can't be the only one who has similar usage figures on mobile platforms? I'm going to think of some suggestions on improving this and post later but for now, food for thought. Thank-you. 🙂
  3. I've used IPB for over 10 years and ever since the beginning had a "classifieds" forum area, where people could post topics to sell things. Still, I use this in the same way but feel I'm not making the most of v4.3 and all it has to offer, what would be recommend to make this better? Is there new ways of displaying topics, or am I best creating a database? Is it all SEO and mobile friendly? Members don't like change, so I'm just looking at the best options with what the latest version of IPB has to offer! Thanks in advance. ?
  4. It would be nice to see more priority on this. It's not some freeware/opensource package mod I downloaded, I paid for a system that should be powerful and customizable, it just feels like corners have been cut on very reasonable features. And also fix the ridiculous subscription system. When a user has purchased a subscription package and it expires, if they try to add it to their basket they get this message: I understand this as they must pay through the invoice but it would be a lot better if this screen redirects to the payments for invoice renewal, instead of an error that is confusing to the user. Both this inconvenient address and invoice issue makes subscriptions extremely inefficient compared to before, as others have said the impact is noticeable. Subscriptions and digital content don't require an address. We are not posting anything.
  5. It would be nice to see a few more options to the mass mail feature to control who receives a mail. Some I can think of: Member Post count Expired Subscription date from Commerce Custom Profile Field filters
  6. But would an option have an impact to your forum? No... it wouldn't. So I don't understand why you are against feedback that would benefit others.
  7. Read the thread so we don't go around in circles. PayPal provides address information if required, there is no need to enter it again when it's already available, it's an unnecessary step. A lot of online stores use PayPal to do this.
  8. I have an articles homepage, that automatically does a topic in the forum when submitted. It displays the attached image in the article but not in the topic, it would be nice to have an option to embed this image in the topic somewhere too.
  9. When a user has purchased a subscription package and it expires, if they try to add it to their basket they get this message: I understand this as they must pay through the invoice but it would be a lot better if this screen redirects to the payments for invoice renewal, instead of an error that is confusing to the user.
  10. I've had a great experience the past 12 years with IPB until v4 then there has been a noticeable slip, I understand new major releases take time and I feel now at v4.1.1.0, is enough time to of ironed out all the issues. But it seems every update I do, I encounter problems, it's frustrating for me and more so my members to the point they are "exhausted" of the site not working correctly. I submit tickets, some get resolved quickly, others I feel slightly brushed away with a standard reply. Not the quality it was before. You've done a great job but I almost feel everything is rushed lately, then you are tripping over yourselves trying to fix it and causing more problems on the way. Are you understaffed? Have key experts and managers left? What's the deal here, I hope it improves.
  11. I want to bring this back to the developers attention as it's driving me insane and losing me money, as well as the members patience. If a subscription expires they can't simply add the subscription back to the basket, it says "You have already purchased it" but they can't renew as the invoice has "Expired" so I have to manually renew them in the ACP. If I turn the expiration off, finding the area to renew the invoice is not straight forward, When a subscription package expires, it should be as easy as adding it to the basket again and making a new purchase for that subscription.
  12. I've seen this mod but for IPB to expand on this feature seems like a logical step forward.
  13. I like the idea of predefined prefixs but it can only be set for all the forums, would it be possible so the prefixs configured can be forum specific?
