  1. this is a great idea, and seems essential to drive traffic back to the site. however, we're hesitant to purchase because i'm afraid we might miss white-listing something important... would it be possible to have a "Simple" option which would apply the plugin only to email notifications about posts and PMs? that might cover the bulk of use-cases from your average IPS forum style site. of course you would still have an "Advanced" mode which causes the plugin to apply to every email except for white-listed templates. also +1 for the requests to exclude user groups (both for admins and as a way to reward paying members). thanks!
  2. great idea, but it seems rather than attachments, most users these days just paste links to external images (which IPS thankfully auto-embeds)... therefore, i was going to ask if you might add support for using the first embedded image. however, i just read that Facebook and possibly other major social sites will be enforcing that the og:image URL be from the same domain as the page (or a white-listed domain) - so i guess adding such a feature would only be practical if our site was using the IPS cache-remote-images feature. so instead - would you consider adding a way to specify a fallback image per-forum for when there are no attached images on a post? then at least we could have an image that is more appropriate to a particular link than our default site-wide og:image. thanks!
  3. so the justification for not addressing these concerns is that admins are too stupid to handle any options that could have significant implications?!? that would mean you should just eliminate 90% of the admin settings. having a basic community gallery feature while not absolutely murdering my hosting storage space allotment seems like a reasonable and straightforward use-case. not to mention it's very technically doable as proven by other common forum software that has been around for 10 years or more.
  4. vBulletin 3, 4, 5 all resize uploaded images that are larger than an admin specified dimension, using GD or ImageMagick. i recently migrated to IPS4 and just assumed that any modern community software would work this way (i know, my bad). anyway, i just realized the lack of this sort of feature is why i'm suddenly running out of space with my host after moving to IPS. membership and traffic are still growing at our normal slow rate, yet disk storage consumption suddenly grew by leaps and bounds. ridiculous!
  5. x2. We are migrating our community to IPS now and were trying to decide between the newer Subscription Plans feature versus using Store products for the same purpose. The store products route has some issues and we prefer the simplicity of Subscription Plans - BUT - not being able to offer a free Subscription that takes the user to the quick-registration form is a deal killer!
  6. Regarding this part of the OP's request: I agree with the intent here, and have 2 possible fixes to suggest to IPS... Suggested way to fix this #1 (easy to implement!) Change the admin Subscription Plans > Settings area to offer 3 choices instead of just required = yes/no... Offer subscriptions when registering?: No = Users get the standard registration or quick-registration process (whichever type you have selected in the Login & Registration settings area already). Yes, as optional = Show subscriptions during registration, but include a "No thanks, continue without purchasing ->" link at the bottom just like already happens when you offer products from the "Store"module during registration but do not require a purchase. The link takes you through the standard registration or quick-registration process and DOES NOT show the checkout or billing-info/customer fields! Yes, as required = Same as turning on the current "Force Subscription purchase when registering" setting. - OR - Suggested way to fix this #2 (my preference, more flexible) Just make it so that when you create one or more zero-cost subscriptions, the "Subscribe Now" button for those free subscriptions actually just takes you directly into the normal registration process (either standard or quick-registration depending on your existing choice in the Login & Registration settings area). Most importantly, these zero-cost subscriptions should not actually act like subscriptions and MUST NOT show the checkout or billing-info/customer fields! A bonus would be to also have Subscription Plans > Settings area option for "Price to display when subscription plan has no cost: [text field]" - which would allow admins to have those plans show their price as whatever they wanted... i.e. "Free!", or "No Charge", or still "$0.00", etc. Thanks for considering, - Kristoffer
  7. +1000! this would seem to be the most common use-case, yet it is not supported well. IPS team, please fix ASAP! Exactly! extremely important because otherwise users are presented with real name & billing address fields, as well as every profile field even if you've selected the quick-registration option in the admin area. yes, that brief dialog is annoying and when it just flashes by it makes the site seem broken or sketchy
    works as advertised in v4.3.3 - thanks for making this!
  8. Anyone know if this still works in v4.3?
  9. i noticed the download for this was updated on 2/22/2018, but the version stayed the same and no changelog - what changed? should we upgrade? thanks!
  10. good stuff but i'm really hoping you fixed the "Complete Your Profile" / "Quick Register" feature to also work if purchasing a subscription while registering. currently every single profile field is shown to users that purchase a subscription while registering, even if "Quick Register" is enabled!
  11. feature request... could you make it possible to set a priority for each ad (when the global circulation setting in IPS is configured for "random")? for example, be able to have some ads show about twice as often as others... or have an ad that only shows about 5% of the time. basicly adjust how the pseudo-random rotation is executed. i'm coming to IPS from vBulletin and was using a free plugin for rotating banners (https://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=188328). they called the attribute "likelihood" and did it in the form of a percentage. this feature is sorely missed as we had some non-profit and self-promotion ads that we set to only show very occasionally in the mix. thanks!
    Seems to work perfectly in 4.2.6, thanks!
  12. I think the point is that people would like to see the product roadmap. It's quite useful to allow us to lookup the status of known bugs & feature-requests, and even up-vote or add additional information to them. It's fairly common practice in most modern dev shops to provide a customer interface to a product's issue/feature tracker. In fact, I just posted on another issue/suggestion topic in this forum as there was a link to the old bug-tracker posted but now that doesn't work and there's no further posts about the status of the issue. If the tracker was semi-public, I could have easily seen if the issue was still known problem and gotten an ETA for fix or voted for a fix.
  13. Could someone confirm this is still a problem in 4.2+? The link to the bug tracker above does not work for me and I can't seem to find anywhere to set a custom error message when post limits are reached.... If this is still a problem (which it seems to be), then it makes the post limits feature useless as the post/upload/comment type buttons seem to just disappear when the limits are reached. There's no explanation and users would indeed just think the site is broken and become frustrated. Instead, when the post limits are reached, all content creation buttons that are normally available to the group should remain enabled but take the user to a customizable "permission denied" error when clicked.
