  1. I hope this "no" means "Well, not now, but may be later". 🙂
  2. To view entire blog or this is per entry feature? How about special friends entries only list?
  3. Great news! And I still hope for grammar module. No more "1 users" please. :)
  4. Sharing, tagging... My dreams are coming true! I'm so exiting and... impatient!
  5. [quote name='c u l8er' timestamp='1300309383']False,I already found a bug :) look at picture #2. Shouldn't that say 1 user is online? Instead it says 1 users are online. Well, still no grammar module...
  6. Well, I can understand your Apple style policy, but you should understand your customers too. We don't know what to expect. Sometimes it's a matter of money. I need some features I have in IPB 2 now and do not have in IPB 3. Bad news is we still don't have such big number of mods for IPB 3 like for IPB 2 and most of the 2.x mod developers didn't upgrade their mods for IPB 3. Now, to migrate to IPB 3 I have two options: to spend about $1000 for customizing my IPB 3 or to wait new IPB 3.x version, that possibly will have some new features I need. The problem is I know nothing about new features and I have only wait and pray. Will IPB 3.2 have gallery posting tool or I need to hire programmers to write it for me? I don't know. This makes me nervous. :unsure:
  7. Because this is just impossible. There is no "bug-free" software more complex than just the "Hello World!". And bigger software
  8. Maybe I'm looking too rude, but you are wrong. Every forum and blog engine is being targeted by spammers. LiveJournal is being targeted by spammers last months, and reCaptcha does not always help. Now in LJ they started to use linguistic algorithms to detect possible spam and screen such comments. One of the most popular vBulletin boards — skyscrapercity.com with about 40 millions posts is being targeted by spammers now. This is not just an IP.Board, this is a global Web 2.0 challenge. And IPS was one of the first companies who tried to response globally using it's anti-spam service.
  9. Well, but we can skip the last confirmation if we are using the recycle bin forum
  10. Well, you don't need to do it yourselves, you only need to add the ability to add some custom grammar logic and add the ability to to store language strings as arrays (and let the forum to use them). As you don't make translations yourselves, you don't need to make foreign grammar logic yourselves too. Just let do it to foreign people. Maybe not in plain complicated PHP, maybe in some kind of abstraction level, like you did it with procedures in templates. I think it's very useful even for you and for the most popular English
  11. Searchengines like keywords in title tag, but not always we can put keyword we need in forum or topic title. Sometimes we have keyword only in description. Make a custom title for every topic by hand is boring, why not to let the forum display a description in title tag together with title: "Topic Title. Topic Description" as an option. Of course forum description in title tag should be without any BB or HTML tags.
  12. This is fantastic! This is just the same warning system I use on my IPB 2 forum! The list of warnings (but not integrated :( ), verbal warning, suspensions (actually premoderation, read only and ban) and all other. Maybe exept warnings view
  13. How funny, we say just like that (Pardon mon French) when saying some offensive in Russia. :) As about topic preview, these popping out panels really irritate.
  14. I just know nothing about grammar in different languages besides Russian, English and French. But I think the idea is in special methods which can analyze the number near the noun and maybe some information about this noun (if its kind influences the form) and then select appropriate language string from lang file. You only need to write a special grammar class once and connect some new logic when adding new language. For English we need two forms in lang file: $foo = array ('singular' => 'foo', 'plural' => 'foos'); And this logic: if ($num < 2) { $foo['singular']; } else { $foo['plural']; } For Russian: $foo = array ('singular' => 'foo', 'plural_1' => 'fooa', 'plural_2' => 'fooov'); if (substr ($num, -1) == 1 && $num != 11) { $foo['singular']; } if (substr ($num, -1) >= 2 && substr ($num, -1) <= 4 && $num < 12 && $num > 14) { $foo['plural_1']; } if ((substr ($num, -1) >= 5 && substr ($num, -1) <= 9) || substr ($num, -1) == 0 || ($num >= 11 && $num <= 14)) { $foo['plural_2']; } Hope I was not get wrong with logic. :) We have to modify lang files this way: $lang = array ( 'approve_img_mem' => array ( 'singular' => '<i>There is <b>%s</b> pending image for this member</i>', 'plural' => '<i>There are <b>%s</b> pending images for this member</i>')); Different language files can have different number of strings according to language logic, for example: $lang = array ( 'approve_img_mem' => array ( 'singular' => '<i><b>%s</b> изображение ожидает подтверждения для этого пользователя</i>', 'plural_1' => '<i><b>%s</b> изображения ожидает подтверждения для этого пользователя</i>'), 'plural_2' => '<i><b>%s</b> изображений ожидает подтверждения для этого пользователя</i>')); Maybe some other people from different countries tell us about their grammar rules to see that my suggestion is (or not) enough to provide all forms.
