  1. Agreed. The nofollow thing seems like something that'd work best as a per usergroup option. That way, trusted groups can post links without nofollow, and then it can maybe be an option in the link prompt/URL BB code for those members in case they do want to nofollow a link.
  2. Because I was reading this topic here earlier about a PM conversation that another member here wanted to turn into a topic: '?do=embed' frameborder='0' data-embedContent>> And dealing with a situation on my own site where a bunch of reports would be better off as topics due to members getting the report link confused with the reply one, and thought: Why not make it so you can change these types of conversation to a public topic if need be? All we'd theoretically need was both: A: These types of conversations to use the same technical structure as topics do (except wit
  3. I used this free modification: '?do=embed' frameborder='0' data-embedContent>> Hope that helps.
  4. So, guess there's no interest in updating the ranks system then? Okay I guess. Never knew people wanted everything purely post count based.
  5. I already mentioned this a long, long while ago, but I guess I'll reiterate it again now... we seriously need forum/category icons as a default feature in the next major version of Invision Power Board. In case you don't know what they are, they're basically forum specific icons you display next the forum name/description on the board index and by sub forum names on the forum topic listing, and look a bit like this: Or this: Or this (from my own site): They're a common feature on many forums (and a lot of big boards), they've been available as a modification for
  6. Could IPS make an option to do this in future? Because at the moment, I have to say the whole 'promote member if they've posted X amount of times' thing is kind of too easy to abuse, and I think the solution would be to have a system sort of like how Lithium does usergroup promotions. How did they do this? They made it so you could set users to be promoted based on things like days registered, topics/posts/content viewed, time online, etc as well as posts, and so you could mix different criteria for each promotion. So for instance, on the official Nintendo forums, to reach the rank o
  7. That's a good point. Even if you don't want the forum classed as a blog, you'd probably want this markup used on member blog posts and IP Content related stuff. So it should be a default for these.
  8. Seems like a good idea. I know I've seen this as an add on for various scripts (I think The Admin Zone uses something like this with vBulletin for the purposes mentioned in the first post), and making it an official IPB feature would be an excellent idea.
  9. I had a mod that did this, and I feel it's something that should be made into default functionality. Because at present, it just makes no sense to have username colours only present on the who's online and some other areas yet not in topics/posts/profiles, and it feels terribly inconsistent. So every time usernames are shown, they should retain all group formatting/CSS options.
  10. Currently, if someone tries to access a folder they're not supposed to, they get the following text: But it only ever links to the IPB site. Why not change this so: A: The page looks like it's actually part of the person's site, like any normal error page and B: It links back to the site home page? Doesn't that seem to make more sense?
  11. From what I hear you can, people can login to connected sites on different domains, they'll just have to login on each site rather than staying logged in across all of them.
  12. That doesn't mean there shouldn't be an option to choose whether their names show up or not. Many might be spammers or trolls no one wants to remember. And its a case of what the license owner wants, if people want an option it should be considered regardless of anything else.
  13. I have to say, I'm really interested in this add on, but I just wondering: 1. Will it be easy/possible to write modules to connect IPB to third party forum scripts like vBulletin/XenForo/MyBB/etc? Because I'd ideally like to use free forum software for additional forums to start with and migrate them to IPB individually in future. 2. Will it be an application like the blogs/gallery/downloads and at much the same price?
  14. I agree. I'm pretty sure something like this was used on the official Nintendo forums some time ago where you got promoted based on time online and since registered, post count, messages read and various other factors. Likes and reputation as criteria for promotion should definitely be an option as well.
