    Ryan Thomas got a reaction from stepy in Blog is Kind of Thin on Features. A handful of improvement ideas   
    Yes, I agree with you guys.
    And how do you feel about the main featured image missing?  I was surprised that this was missing, because all of my 3.4.7 blog images do not carry over to the IP Blog 4.0 which is mind boggling to me.
    Plus, by not having a featured image, how do Wordpress users convert over to IP 4 blogs since Wordpress utilizes a featured image?
    Still confused by this decision...

    Ryan Thomas got a reaction from stepy in "Featured Image" for IP Blog 4.0?   
    Hey guys,
    For latest blog posts, I noticed that it only shows the title and profile image of the blogger.  However, is there anyway for most recent blog posts to display a primary "featured" image, just like Worppress does?
    This is very important for the community I plan to build since the featured image has always been used to grab the attention of my visitors and it summarizes the blog post in a single image.
    Anyway to accomplish this?

    @LaCollision and everyone else, I have attached the enable status feed plugin to this topic for you guys so that you can download it.  Just install it as a plugin onto your IP 4.0 board and enjoy!
    Btw, if you would like to enable the status feed automatically for existing users, just run the following SQL query by going to  ACP => system =>support like so:

    Run the following SQL query to update existing members so that their status feeds are updated automatically:
    update ipb_core_members set pp_setting_count_comments = 1, create_menu = ''; Anyways, don't thank me....thank the programmer who took on the job!
    Enjoy  ​

    Ryan Thomas got a reaction from Markus Jung in Make activity stream the homepage?   
    Yes, if there is anyway to include the status feed or activity stream inside of a block, that would be awesome.  I really wish it was already included under "system" blocks.  This is the most disappointing omission from IP 4.0 in my opinion.
    If anyone would developer a plugin or provide the code to put inside a custom block, I would be more than happy to compensate them of course!

    Ryan Thomas got a reaction from SJ77 in Enable status feed by default? Users cannot use global status feed by default...very confusing.   
    Hey guys,
    So I decided to open my site today but noticed that the global status feed does not work for new users.  They have to go into their profile and manually click on "enable status feed" to even post on the global status feed.
    So, is there anyway to enable the status feed for all users by default or at least allow them to post on the global status feed so they do not have to go in and manually enable it on their profile every time?
    Thanks for the help!

    Ryan Thomas got a reaction from Shawn Tierney in How to create subscriptions with commerce? And how to do a test of payments?   
    Hey guys, 
    I am a noob at the Commerce app within IP 4.0.  I don't believe there is any documentation for it, so I guess I will ask here as I'm sure there are many experienced IP users out there.
    1) How would I create a monthly or yearly subscription?  And is there anyway that this subscription will automatically charge the client's credit card or PayPal account?
    2) Also is there a way to have donations as a subscription, like auomtically monthly or yearly donations?
    3) And finally, how do I test payment methods before going live to make sure everything is really working?
    Thanks guys for your help!

    Okay this would be awesome Kevin.  Will this be included in the next update for the Collaboration app then?  And how soon do you think it will be ready.
    Thanks again for your help on this and your app is definitely the best third party app on my website.

    I'm looking into some ways that I can make the sql queries run a bit faster for you. It looks like most of those queries you showed me are from widgets pulling content from the whole site, and therefore must sql join and filter based on permissions for collabs.

    Seems to be part of the stock status updates widget, as I've used its general structure. I'm already aware, and it will be fixed in the next update  (option for showing the uploader).
    I just turned it off on my site, so it's not the same issue we had with the default Rich Text. Make sure you reload the page before trying to turn it back off, as the JS doesn't update automatically from the Block Manage view.
    I'll enable 0 status updates per page for the next update, though I'm not sure yet if multiple blocks of ASU can be used.

    Thanks for your inputs

    ​But what happens if the mod is not supported later on though?  Or if IP Board upgrades to a major version number and the developer decides to not upgrade it as well?  I am so tempted to check it out but worried about these questions because I do not want to end up relying so heavily on a mod that becomes unsupported later on...

    Hey @Storyteller, thanks for the link and it looks quite impressive but I'm always nervous about relying on a mod for such a massive feature of my website that so many users will be dependent on.  I do not see anything mentioned by IP Staff or in the upcoming features list about this so this mod might be a good option after all.
