    There should not be categories section for databases that do NOT use categories:

    When you have a section that has many subsections, it is impossible to go thru each section because it will collapse the tree each click and you have to find the section you were in and open in t again.
    it would be most helpful if there was a dynamic previous/next links at the end of the article on the content page

    Bootstrap has a solution to this. Well, actually two solutions:

    I think this is better as a plugin.
    It's a seriously infected issue that will cause division in the user base. Personally I would never add it, unless my community is based around a community that think this is important. The reason for that is that it is pretty much a safe bet that people will behave just as bad as on Twitter and I think we have enough trolls to worry about to not add strife amongst our members if we can prevent it.
    I am all for expressing yourself and adding whatever labels you feel is appropriate to your community, but this is what custom fields are for and this is what plugins should be used for in my opinion.

    Abies reacted to Matt in Has member title been removed?   
    To recap:
    You do not need to enable the new rules, badges and ranks. There is an option pre-upgrade that asks you if you want to switch to the new system or not. If you choose not to, then you retain the existing ranks you already have.


    The upgrade will also move any custom titles across to a new custom profile field.

    If you want to show the custom member title under the user's photo in a post, then just switch on these custom field settings which are off after the upgrade.

    Abies reacted to Afrodude in Copy Topic to Database. "Suggestions"   
    This is an amazing option we have with Pages, yet it does need some new feature that will make admins work whenever they decide to use Pages easier.
    First suggestion, we need a "Copy forum to database" option. It is really hard whenever you decide you want to make a new database for new project that already has been using forum has 500 topics more or less, and then move them one by one. 
    Second suggestion, whenever you copy topic to database it has all options, but the time stamp. It's really would be great if you guys add this.

    Abies got a reaction from SeNioR- in Filter reactions by given and received   
    Hello,
    Currently all the reactions (both given and received) in users profile are mixed all together.
    Problem: What if I wanted to check what posts I've reacted to, or what posts of mine are the most "reactable"? 😉 ☢️ It's quite challenging to scan the whole list to get a quick overview.
    Solution: The idea is to add a switch between Reactions given and Reactions received.
    Quick visualisation:

     
    In my eyes this could make the list more useful and easier to use. And what's your view on this idea?
  9. Thanks
    Abies reacted to Rhett in Scheduled Posts   
    I have brought this up internally for further review, I can't promise anything at this point, but it's being considered for a future version.  Thank you for all of your feedback on this item.

    Abies reacted to JMSetzler in Scheduled Posts   
    I think it would be really nice to have the ability to create a post and schedule it to be posted at a later date/time.  This would allow me to do a LOT of work ahead of time on my forum.

    Abies got a reaction from Ibai in User profiles - hide unnecessary filtering   
    Hello there!
    The main purpose of user profiles is to make discovering user's content easier. I've found a way to improve the process a bit.
    1. Content discovery
    Let's take a look on my profile and especially on the filtering options:

    Problem: It's quite a long list that grows with every new app or a content type. I find it confusing as during my time here I've posted only a topic and some posts.
    I don't think I'm able to post anything in the documentation, release notes, providers, guides, IPS Blog etc. But I'm still able to filter my results by those options [basically to get no results note].
    Solution: The idea is to hide all the empty-result-filters. Thanks to this we exactly know what type of content certain user posted, and save our time on scanning the long list.

    2. Reputation view
    I wanted to check my reputaion activity and this happened:

    Problem: The page shows no results. Quite confusing as the sidebar clearly shows that I do have reputation activity. This is because by default the resulsts are filtered by Status updates in which I have no activity. And the list of possible filters is also very long (as stated above).
    Solution:  As we have All activity filter in user's content page by default, we should also have All reputation activity filter in user's reputation page. And limiting the possible filters would (as above) make the experience more intuitive and clear.
    In my case it would look like this as I have reputation activity in blog entries, blog comments and posts:

    Thanks for reading! 🙂
