    • forum size limit

      Increase forum size limits to 100KB or more. Right now the limit is 50KB, which really limits forum posts to only text and can't include low res graphics. I would like to see the forum size limit increased or allow administrators to set the forum size limits in the settings.

      • Include initial description along with Forum Title

        It seems that every other forum I have used always lists the initial description with the title of the Forum Topic at the top. Replies to the topic are listed below. Your own WA support forums work that way!!

        The current forum gadget treats the initial description the same as one of the replies, so that it may appear at the top or bottom . depending on your settings. This is a problem and should be fixed.

        • forums and Facebook

          Build a connection between forums and a closed facebook group. Members are saying that they don't use the forums because it is a pain to log into a system they don't already access on a regular basis... but most are on Facebook daily...

          Or, is there a way to auto-subscribe members to certain forum channels? Any advice on easing the process for members to comment/interact?

                • Allow limiting of forum administration to specific admin role

                  Currently it appears that any level of administrator can perform administrative activities in a forum: a member or events admin, for example, can move messages between forums, delete messages, post pictures in a forum message, etc.

                  I feel that forum administration should only be allowed by someone with the "website" admin role.

                  Ideally, there needs to be a new "forum administrator" role so that trusted members can act as moderators without gaining other unrelated administrative privileges.

                  • Automatic live links in member forums

                    In member forums, make the links that members post go automatically live instead of having to add them manually. Thanks!

                    • See how many views a forum post has received

                      I've had a number of our members ask if it is possible to see how many times a forum post has been viewed. All our forums are 'Member' only and this feature would be very useful to review and judge member engagement. I hope there are others who would find this a useful feature if it was deemed acceptable to be introduced.

                      • Add more forum admin functions

                        Administrators should have the ability to set all members and/or specific groups to: subscribe to a forum, unsubscribe to a forum, and set default email frequency. Right now admins can set this individually on the member account but there is not option to do it for all members/groups at once.

                            I would like to see the ability to close a forum post to further comments without needing to delete it. The only options I presently see are edit, merge, move or delete.

                            • Easier tools to archive/manage old discussion forum threads

                              Help! We're getting overrun with old discussion forum posts that never age off the forum, so admins have to go in and manually delete the oldest. This is inefficient (an hour each week for me). A better way would be to: a)have a 'best-before' option (i.e. 3 months) where anything older is automatically deleted, or b) offer an admin tool that lists all posts, allows sorting by multiple fields, and allows delete or archive of single or multiple posts.

                                • Allow deleting all topics older than a certain date

                                  We have some forums where there are 50 or more pages of topics - some of which go back 4 or 5 years. I know that topics can be deleted manually, but only one by one, and the way it works now, if you remove the oldest topic, it takes you back to the top of the forum.

                                  I would like to have a way of removing all topics older than a specific date. This would allow pruning of the forum backlogs in an orderly - and much more efficient - fashion.

                                    • Uploading documents and photos in forum and blog posts

                                      Is it possible that you could correct the function of the forum and blog pages to not only allow someone to add a link, but also to add a document to the page?

                                      What downfall is there in providing this function?

                                        Hi Supporters!

                                        We are happy to inform you that we have started to develop the solution. We have prepared a presentation to make you understand what exactly we are developing and releasing this year, and what we will do next steps:
                                        https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/15gIOfqylI7hEY3-czhHO-O5yD1QvAAsb33j8r6THJq8/pub?start=true&loop=false&delayms=5000

                                        Key changes:
                                        1) Ability to attach files to post and comment
                                        2) reCAPTCHA
                                        3) Notification about new posts and comments for administrators by email.

                                        Will be glad to hear your comments!

                                      • Managing email subscriptions to forum updates

                                        Current behavior:
                                        Members can subscribe to receive updates about forum posts by email - by going to the forum and clicking on a subscription link in that forum or topic
                                        However, there is no way for administrator to view their subscription status or change it.
                                        If administrator wants to subscribe them manually, the only way is to log in under member's profile (so he has to know the password) and subscribe to forums as if he is this member - very crude workaround.
                                        Admin can only remove subscriptions from member records.

                                        Desired behavior:
                                        - Allow administrator to subscribe member(s) to…

                                        • Add moderation of new forum posts

                                          Current behavior:
                                          All posts and replies are published immediately (subject to the user having appropriate access rights on the particular forum)

                                          Desired behavior:
                                          Ability to moderate posts/comments

                                          Implementation ideas:

                                          - Administrator can specify whether forum should be moderated or not (maybe by each membership level?)
                                          - Administrator can assign moderators
                                          - All new posts/replies according to settings go into moderation list
                                          - Moderators receive notices (probably option: each message/daily digest)
                                          - Moderators have online list of messages to be moderated and can approve/reject/edit them
                                          - once approved, message is displayed.
