  1. The new activity streams feature is looking great and I can't wait to put it into use! However, I noticed that while it can filter content to show only specific users, it doesn't have an option to show content from certain groups. An additional option to only use content created while the user is/was actually in the group would be nice, too. Alternatively, when content highlights are eventually added, the ability to create activity streams for certain highlights would be a good way for me to achieve my goal as well. (I want to show developer posts for a game, and not every single post is relevant to the entire community.)
  2. I think one thing that IP.Board has been lacking in the past is an easier way to manage user groups. As new permissions are added in new versions, it becomes rather time consuming to update every user group to ensure these are set how we'd like, especially for anyone running a board with 10+ groups. It would be great if we could just have each group (optionally) inherit permissions from another group, and the ability to leave a permission blank in order to inherit it from the parent group. Right now, the only way to get anything close to this would be to assign tons of secondary groups, but in the end I think that just makes it more confusing to manage everything.
  3. Keep in mind that in order to accept credit card payments directly on your site with a service such as PayPal, your server should be PCI DSS compliant. Even though, as Mark said above, Nexus doesn't support PayPal Advanced yet, it does include a payment gateway for Stripe, which allows your customers to enter their credit card information directly on your site, but the actual credit card number never gets sent to your server (it gets sent to Stripe's servers, which sends your server a 'token' to use that card). You'll probably also be happy to learn that Stripe doesn't have any monthly fees. You can learn more about IP.Nexus' most recent updates to payment gateways here, which also has more information on how Stripe works.
  4. So, does this mean that you'll also be adding some sort of pay-as-you-go credit feature to Nexus? If so, that would be awesome!
  5. The little things really add up. Some of these features are going to make my day just a bit easier, which is always a good thing. :)
  6. Regarding letting users know why their post was deleted, why not add a new option (doesn't even need to be per-group) along the lines of "Allow users to see own hidden/deleted posts and reason?"
  7. With the recent addition of actions (and much more) to Facebook's Open Graph, are there any plans to take advantage of this in future versions IP.Board? More information about Open Graph is available here:
  8. I like how the IPS enterprise demo request form has 'Over 9000' as an option for number of employees.

  9. Not working for me, either. I've tried adding a new mobile UA with just "Windows Phone OS" as the regex on my own and that doesn't seem to work, either (I'm still using 7.1, HTC HD7). Brandon, if you're interested in testing it yourself, the Windows Phone SDK includes an emulator. Otherwise, I'd be glad to keep checking back and testing as well.
  10. Unless there is a specific issue I did not test for, the editor here works fine in Firefox 3.6.13 for me. See my test post:
  11. When you click Download for IP.Board, you'll get a dropdown. IP.Converge is an option from there. I've never used Joomla with IP.Converge, so I wouldn't be able to help you much with that. Install IP.Converge first, then try that again.
  12. You can, but instead of permission masks you'd use IP.Board template logic show it only to your staff groups. You'll need to use PHP's in_array if you want to show it to more than one group. <if test="$this->memberData['member_group_id'] == '4'"> parse the blocks </if>
  13. If you want to be able to use the same login details across your Joomla and IP.Board installations, you can do that with IP.Converge. IP.Converge is included with every IP.Board license and can be downloaded from the client area. The Joomla module for Converge is available here:
  14. When you create the page that you will place the blocks on, one of the steps will be to set permissions. You should set it something like this:
  15. It's not possible for your physical RAM sticks to contain a virus. RAM is volatile memory, when it loses power (shutdown, taken out of PC, etc), everything that was on it is erased permanently.
