  1. Do you consider adding that feature to future versions?
  2. @Adriano Faria When promoting the first post to article, will the other posts be "promoted" to comments as well? I think it's best to have a perfect synchronization between the article and the topic.

    Hi @Mike John: It seems that the Portal plugin is not compatible with IPS 4.1.7. Could you please check?

    A suggestion to @Mike John: The current layout leaves a wide space below the avatar. Although this does not seem to be a problem on larger screens, it should be optimized for phone screen. I suggest Mike to resize the avatar and put it into the title bar.
  5. Error when posting a comment (on your demo website). And after that, the comment was added twice. Sorry, there is a problem Something went wrong. Please try again. Error code: EX0

    Oh I didn't know about that app. From what I have read in the description, this app is similar to Pages, right? There is an option to create a discussion topic for the news, so News and Topics are separate, i.e. just like Pages, there are two different databases. Is there an option to promote a topic to News? By the way, is there a demo? If you modify News content, will the content of the corresponding topic be updated? And vice-versa? Since my website is forum-centered (just like most of IPS websites), I don't really like the idea of having two different items with the same content (SEO is one of many reasons).

    For websites with forum-based content, which I believe is most of the cases of IPS websites, the idea of having a separate database like IPS Pages does not appear to be a good idea. Besides, I think Pages is beyond the need of most of the websites of this kind (though it still lacks many fundamental or important features, and is not easy to use). On the contrary, the current Portal app is just too simple. I suggest something in the middle of the two, with the following features: Display: Truncating options to set length, to choose whether to keep the formatting (i.e. rich text). Article thumbnails (generated from images in the post, if no image available then choose a default one). Article management: To ability to manually modify the displayed articles: remove or re-order/rearrange them (so that old articles can go on top if needed). Currently the list is built from a set of chosen forums, with a predefined order (based either on creation date or on the date of the last post). Category: the ability to define a category for each added article. The ability to remove/add/re-order an article in a category. Permission: which groups are able to manage the list. Moderations action in topics: promote to or de-promote from Portal (can choose category). With these feature, the app does have a database, but it is very simple: just a list of arrays of topic IDs. Each list corresponds to a category, which contains the name of the category and an array of article IDs in this category. I strongly recommend @Mike John to make a paid app with these features, as a Pro version of Portal. I believe it will be a success. Of course I would be very happy buying it If somebody else is also interested in this, please let Mike know. Thanks.

    Upgraded to 4.1.4 and no longer have this issue. I think you are seeing a hidden post on the Portal because you are an admin. Try with a guest or another account to see if there's a difference.

    I'm using 4.1.3.2. I created an account for you but could not add it to the admin group since there is a bug. As soon as a fix is released I'll do that and then please have a look. Thank you in advance.

    @Mike John: If there is a hidden topic in one of the selected forum, then there is an error when opening the portal: Sorry, there is a problem Something went wrong. Please try again. Error code: EX0 Could you please check?
