  1. Sure, but how do you connect these forums? As the only difference between these forums is the language, surely they should be connected. The same goes for articles in the CMS. If you write an article in English, but you also have a French section, then it should be possible for members to translate the article and post it as a translation. This means that readers will have to be able to find the French translation when looking at the English article. Its a basic CMS function.
  2. Uhm.... you forgot the localization and translation of content. How about having the same content (articles for example) in multiple languages? How about having a forum subject covered by a forum for each language?
  3. But with a popular framework vulnerabilities are found quicker. I much doubt that popular & robust frameworks like Zend would dissappear, so thats an unlikely scenario. Using such third party framework would also be a boost to the addon community. Anyway, I hope that you will produce somethign even better than Zend and CI.
  4. Currently it is not possible to share cookies across domains. But the question keeps coming up again and again, so I hope that IPS will implement this function soon.
  5. What does a dev need to do to get certified? I cant see the application and am interested to know what standards are used.
  6. The issue is that there is not one cookie law. Each country has its own implementation of the EU directive into national law. The Netherlands is one of the countries that implemented the EU directive in the most strict way. Meaning that all website cookies need to be fully described on the website and any cookie which is not necessary for the user needs to be agreed upon before it can be placed. Its nothing short of idiotic, but it is what it is. At least at the moment. A major issue is that EU countries need to start giving out hefty fines starting this month. In the Netherlands the Watch
  7. Because:it behaves strangely (adds an extra line break, when you remove this the quote breaks, etc)it does not display the needed information (who you are quoting)quoting multiple texts is confusing.for some reason you need to find a light switch, click it, then find out why all buttons in the editor stop working and then go learn complex code to deal with it all.Try testing this on a forum that mainly has elders as a member base. Its easy to predict that it will not fare well.
  8. I think that new features for widespread use should not be released unless they are granny proof. The quote function is not.
  9. A hashtag and a topic tags are essentially the same thing: a hotlinked tag that links to topics on the same subject. The only difference between a hashtag and a topic tag is that topic tags are not in posts, while hashtags are/would be. It would be useful to have such in-post tagging functionality. Mainly so that people can follow a tag.
  10. Many of the questions of my site are titled: Urgent question!!!! Please HELP! I think it should work like on Yahoo! Answers. But frankly speaking, this 'best answer' feature is just one feature that makes Yahoo! good at answers. Without the rest, and specifically the way questions are asked (with autosearch) the function is incomplete at best.
  11. The IB Cerberus product indeed does this. Its freely available on vb.org. There are developers who offer advanced functionality for Cerberus. I have been running it for some time.
  12. The icon is not very easy to find due to its size, changing icon and the fact that its sometimes not clickable. It would be nice if there would be a setting to control this behavior and allow admins to let the main link go to last unread, and the icon to go to the first post. Most people on my big board go straight to last unread. I fear this is especially confusing for users who are used to vbulletin and this therefore makes the transition to IPS more difficult.
  13. This concerned the converter which was frequently updated. None of the bugs are marked with a version. Probably is because no suitable version is in the tracker drop down.
  14. OK. I will report it then as it seems that comments are being missed and bugs left unfixed. It seems to me that its useful for developers to easily see a list of open issues. With 'open' I mean issues that need to be addressed. A fixed issue may be open for comments, but the issue is resolved. If semantics are important, then a petition to 'mark as unfixed' suits well. At least that flags the item as in need of attention. Alex just asked me what issues I am stuck on with my conversion while I have been waiting on response for a over a week. This is very customer unfriendly as there is no
  15. Shortly after this site went normal again, xenforo.com became slow and then unreachable. Could be related. Anyway, it would look professional and be helpful if social media would inform why customers cant reach your website.
