    Dreamlander got a reaction from liquidfractal in why is search so bad?   
    I agree with maidos, the search must be improved.
    Now days many engines works default, with Stemming Search,with no  wildcard asterisk added,the users don't know this and it's risky losing content on search,like RevengeFNF said.
    The search engine is bad since the old versions ,it is outdated you must do something about it.I thought in the new version was upgraded also.It's so shame.

    @Lindy and if i search for "Tests" and i expect it to show results for "testing", "tested", "test", etc etc?
    This is Stemming Search, where it reduces words to their word stem, base or root.
    Sphinx and Elasticsearch supports this, Invision Mysql Search does not...
    Sphinx even supports Lemmatization, where for example, if you search for "Run", it will also return results for "Ran"

    for many users they want to search for stuff but cant completely remember the name so they type incomplete names example
    a person want to find a topic called ABC DEF but ends up only remembering and searching ABC DE and that would yield 0 results if you have the search phrase to "and"
    sphinx never had that issue, it would had resulted the precise result of ABC DEF even though he searched for incomplete name of either both words even though search type was set to "and"

    Dreamlander got a reaction from Wei Ting Lee in Embed Attached MP3 Files   
    I think this is because of the compatibility issue after upgrading, the old BBcode that embed mp3 is no more valid, it is changed with a new one.Every time we upgrade there is a possibility the new BBCODE doesn't work with the old one.This is a huge problem with the ips products when we update to new versions, we assume the risk that:addons, BBCODE,applications,plugins etc. dont work anymore.If you have the knownledge you can change the code in order to work again, if not you have to pay third parties for doing this job.

    Dreamlander reacted to chilihead in Video Embeds to Gallery   
    I've seen that app, it's very cool, my issue with 3rd party apps is I don't like them handling major content. If the app goes unsupported, poof, you can lose years of content. Content that could be in Gallery.
    It's a very nice app but I'm hoping they add embeds to Gallery. Enough people have raised the concern and they have been adding a lot lately. Fingers crossed.

    Dreamlander reacted to Ankit Aggarwal in Feature Suggestion: A simple invitation system   
    It is such a common thing these days that communities starting out as closed community to preserve quality of discussions inside. Quora and Forrst are two such examples. But in that case, only way to spread the word is through invitations so that people with similar interest can joun in.

    I am not in favor of importing gmail or facebook contacts in bulk, but there should be a feature that a person can enter 2-3 emails manually to invite their friends. The no. of invitations per person can either be fixed/month or can be based on amount of contribution.

    Can we expect something like this in future?

    Dreamlander got a reaction from HighlanderICT in [SUG]Calendar IPS app - No Limit Year option for recurring events   
    Hi,
    It's more useful also, for the recurring events, to have the possibility to check an option like "yearly recurring events with no limit" instead of setting the year limit.
    In my calendar I have celebrating recurring yearly events, and there is no reason to set a year time limit in this time period, because they are repeating every year (endless).

    I wish so much, you implement this.

    Thank you!
    Best regards!

    Dreamlander reacted to omarf in Email integration ?   
    Is this feature still under consideration by IPS?

    It exists for phpBB2, and it's been in (stalled) development for phpBB3 under the name mail2forum. It also exists for vBulletin 3.x as a supported extension called Email Integration.

    One of my forums makes extensive use of mail2forum, and it adds significant value to the members because it allows those who prefer email communication to be active, while those who prefer an online interface can avoid emails if they wish. Best of both worlds!

    Mail2Forum handles attachments, too. The way it works is fairly simple: Each forum is assigned an email address and registered users can send an email to that address thereby starting a new topic. Users "subscribe" to individual forums and each time a post is made, all subscribed users get the post (and attachments) by email. They can reply to the email message, and their reply is threaded in the forum thread. It's a very neat idea, unfortunately the development stalled for phpBB3, so we're stuck having to use phpBB2 which is getting old and doesn't support much of what modern forums offer.

    I would love to buy the IPS community suite if it included the email integration feature!

    So, what do you say, IPS? Can you do it?

    Cheers!

    I opened this topic in order to make a list of features removed from version 3.1.4., in the new version 3.2
    I hate this because 3.1.4 has some features that are very useful and now we have to find hooks doing those.

    One of this is status online/offline of the members in topics.
    You can find the hook here

    My opinion is that it sounds like a nice feature, but could cause large databases to grow in size greatly. This (database size) can be a real problem for very large boards.

    Dreamlander reacted to m3rk0rd in Calendar needs List View   
    I would like to suggest the Calendar application have a List View (like the Agenda View in Google Calendar), in addition to the current options of Month View, Week View, and Day View.

    My board typically has dozens of calendar events spread out over the next several years. Its just not practical for visitors to skim through many months to find out about new events.

    A simple List View would solve this, in which the list of upcoming events would be displayed with the dates and titles, and perhaps an option to show part of the description as well.

    I'm thinking why ips had to remove the features from 3.1.4 in the new version, it looks to me like a downgrade.
    Maybe they will consider and implement again these features, rather than finding and depeding of some hooks.
    It's so simple, to resolve this and make peace to all, please make some options in control panel to enable or disable the features removed.And those who doesn't want it to disable and those who wants to enable them.
