  1. Hi, Currently QA forums have similar approach as StackOverflow. It helps much if comes to real DEV or configuration specific questions and not discussions. However, comparing to StackOverflow the IPB's version misses ability to add comments like in Stack. Why it is so important? To keep answers as clean as possible. We noticed the answers are often used to ask additional questions, where it would be better to add additional clarification questions under specified answer instead as a reply (answer). Hoping you will consider the request, at least as optional option to activate. Thanks.
  2. @bfarber As we are in the area of forums types and discussion design. I would like to suggest to improve QA forums in 4.5 to allow comments to specified answers, same as in stack overflow (may be as optional option). It really would make the QA's nicer and not so extended in length, so people may ask additional questions to specified answer instead posting answers as additional questions to already answered questions, got it? Currently lack of ability to add comments to answers is biggest flaw of QA's forums.
  3. @Matt, you gonna offer the "solved" forums as new type or as replacement to current QA forums? I hope you won't remove QAs.
  4. I just wonder, why over years IPS did not improve Commerce to ship it along with better customer assistance tools. It would be great to have there a live chat feature, with rooms and queue. I realize IPS wants to implement only features that are essential, however the chat is being requested over years and years. I also noticed they prefer to implement support of third parties, what is understood-able, less to handle by IPS directly. Anyway, I think live chat, with queue and auto-assignment of potential customer to a agent would be great addition as a part of commerce. Third party services get more and more expensive, by simple solutions from IPS you could save a lot of money of your customers and therefore slightly instead price of your products. This way people will be happy to pay you slightly more than spending millions on third party services linked to IPB. Over years the biggest plus of IPS solutions was that we had all in one place, no tones of additional services to manage, pay, remember, configure, adjust, change. We had our IPS software and it was enough for 99% of users but I see it is changing.
  5. It would be nice to implement pastebin, so pastes can be pushed via editor directly and inserted into post. Pastebin is widely used to provide range of pastes, read more: https://pastebin.com/api It is also a good way of avoiding long content posted by users as a paste what is pretty annoying and common issue. Pastebin is free to use but also has paid features, less than $50 lifetime, so it is not expensive, worth to implement.
  6. What is the discussion about. IPS should add other option as requested and every forum admin may decide how to use the ignore feature. I sometimes doubt whether single additional option that could be done within 20 minutes is worth multiple topics and writing a book, no offense!
  7. Hello, @Rikki, I try to use it within Pages, in templates but I get unrecognized ips. error in console. What I miss? I use default IPS wrapper. <script type="text/javascript"> var dialog = ips.ui.dialog.create({ url: '{$record->url()}', modal: true, title: "Dialog Title" }); </script>
    Nice addon, stopped working in posts in 4.4.10. Appears only while adding code block to post for first time, after submitting is not longer visible. Hoping for a fix.
  8. @bfarber, any contribution of yours to the subject? 😄
  9. I meant to introduce some improvement into it, like now we need to click to select a stick action from drop down list, often scroll down and then click submit where we could just press CTRL+1 and that's it.
  10. Thanks! I searched the forums before asking but often the relevant topic titles are named the way it is not possible to connect it directly to searched content.
  11. Hi, I wonder whether it would be possible from IPS to share their Blog Front Index template (https://invisioncommunity.com/news), so we can contribute together as clients and bring similar blog page created within Pages to the community. @bfarber was kind to share a piece of guides section there, would be nice to get the front page blog template too. The template could be provided AS-IS, we can adjust it for general use. Thanks.
  12. Hello, Replying support requests sometimes may take even most part of work day and is highly irritating for "nowdays" full-stack developer who additionally handles after-sale support 😉 Commerce needs some better way of applying pre-defined stock action into editor. I see two possible improvments. 1) Right side panel with all actions available, full list, scroll-able with load after single click selection instead select field 2) Keyboard short-cuts configurable for every stock action. Additional, optional option per action would be to auto-submit after shortcut what saves extra step of clicking submit.
  13. Hi, I believe many looks for that. Not a new technology but highly expected. Make able to download invoices as PDF but generate them on fly basing on HTML template. So, once client clicks to download it is being generated on fly - viola! This way you made a day of 100s of IPS clients!
