  1. It would be extremely useful if we could set the store to deliver a key from a list of pre-generated product keys. This would allow us to distribute Steam keys automatically when a product is sold on our site.
  2. We sell some products directly through our site, but other products are only sold through other marketplaces (other websites). It would be convenient if we could set an optional URL for a product so when the user clicked on the product, it sent them to the product page on the external site.
  3. Shocking!

    I copied and pasted an old record from a database I am deleting into a blog. Then I thought "Hmmm, I should reupload those attachments so they don't deleted". When I went to upload a file I saw all my content that had been pasted into the blog body was ALREADY an attachment! That saved me soooo much time!
  4. IPB NEEDS A DECENT EMAIL MARKETING SOLUTION!

    However, Mailchimp's RSS import really sucks. If IPB had the ability to automatically send a mass email of each blog, I'm sure it would be much better.
  5. IPB 4 is really good

    I've been using IPB4 for a couple of weeks, and it really doubles down on making the basic functionality better. The interface for both the user and the admin panel is MUCH simpler than IPB3, and I don't feel like anything was lost. The attachments, replies, and notifications are really well done. Thanks!
  6. IPB NEEDS A DECENT EMAIL MARKETING SOLUTION!

    Apparently MailChimp also has automatic email campaigns. So if you set up the MailChimp plugin for IPB that should handle everything you need. The only problem an IPB feature would solve is that Mailchimp is quite expensive for large lists.
  7. Suggestions Forum

    The questions-style forum already has this functionality and it would just have to be slightly modified to support a suggestions forum, where people make requests for products (kind of like this forum). Users would be able to vote on the topic itself, but the replies to the topic would not have any voting. Instead of "vote for this question" it would say "vote for this suggestion". It would be a really good way to track what the community feels is a priority. I will not use the "questions" style forum for this purpose because people would just get confused.
  8. IPB NEEDS A DECENT EMAIL MARKETING SOLUTION!

    Hubspot would charge about $7000 a year for this functionality. If IPB added another app for automated marketing and it was really well-tested I would gladly pay $1000.
  9. Mass delete users

    I get to spend the next ten minutes of my morning deleting a bunch of Russian accounts that are variations on the same name and post the exact same thing over and over. There's no guarantee I won't be doing the same thing tomorrow morning or tonight.
  10. I believe Google penalizes broken links, and there's no way to avoid this if your community has been around for a while and gone through changes. A tool to evaluate posts and remove broken links within the community URL would be helpful.
  11. IPB NEEDS A DECENT EMAIL MARKETING SOLUTION!

    You also want to have the server send out one email a day after they register, another email three days later, another one seven days later, etc. to keep the customer engaged. You just preconfigure a bunch of emails to automatically send out in scheduled intervals. Hubspot costs big money to do this.
  12. I can't tell you how many people didn't know how to post an image on our forum with the 3.x topic editor. This is much better.
  13. This is the best forum notification system I've ever seen, and hooking into the OS is amazing. The whole site feels very alive.
  14. Status Updates

    I just updated our community from 3.x to 4.1 and I'm wondering where our status updates and blog hooks went. Without having those on the main forum page, they will never get used. We might as well get rid of those features entirely.
