  1. Add a spell checker for members when posting to forums

    I have been getting complaints from members saying there is no spell checker to use when they are using the message and discussion area. For months I have been telling them there was as I use it every day.

    The problem is they were correct all the time. I have one in admin mode but when I changed to member view the spell checker was not there. This is a MAJOR problem for me. People need a spell checker to post messages. Please let me know how to fix this problem asap. The message and discussion area is the most…

  2. 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…

  3. Customizable username for forums

    Does anyone know how to change how members show up when they post a comment in the Forum?

    Because we have members real names blocked, all members that post show up as "Anonymous Member" in posts.

    When members apply for membership, they select a "Profile" Member name.

    Is there a way for this discreet "Member / Profile" name to show up in posts instead of having to unblock their real names or only show "Anonymous".

    Any help greatly appreciated.

  4. FORUM - include full posting text in email digest

    Because the daily forum summary only includes topics and links, users are not willing to switch from Yahoo groups. We'd rather not maintain both systems, obviously. People want to read the post on their mobile device email instead of having to logon to see them.

    We need to be able to specify if our daily digest will include just the topics and links, or contain the full text of the new postings. Would be nice if users could switch their individual setting from the site default if they don't want full text, for example.

    Our forum activity isn't very high,…

  5. Order forum summary other than alphabetical

    When using multiple forums, the forums are listed in the summary in alphabetical order. I would like my discussion forum users to see the forums in an order that I choose, not alphabetical. I would also like to leave the forum names as is, instead of re-naming with a prefix to get the correct order.

    For example, I would like my users to see the "Rules" forum at the top of the forum summary and my "Everything Else" forum to appear at the bottom. Currently they appear within my forum summary where "R" and "E" fall in the alphabet.

    Thanks!

  9. Insert photo from album to Forum topic

    Be able to INLINE a photo in a forum post from a users photo album(s). If it's all mostly one DB instance anyway, how hard could it be to ask for a "insert link/photo from album" that leads to a dialog to select a photo and have it display inline with the forum post. I'm sure not as simple as I suspect, but why have data in a database if we can't get to it at convenient moments, like posting a forum entry with a small photo inline..

    If this is already possible, pardon the RTFM moment on my part.

  10. Custom sorting options for forum subjects

    This is similar to Paul's. It'd be nice for admins to be able to sort forum subjects in different orders. We can only "pin" one item to the top of a forum. If we can sort them by subject alphabetically, or manually number them, that'd be dandy. Last to first is

  11. Add a Report Post link in Discussion Forum Posts [7490]

    I see a Wish List about forum moderation. But I would like to see a "Report Post" link in every post that would allow any reader to report the post to the site owner. Nothing fancy. Just click the link and a message comes up that says "This post has been reported to the site administrator. Thanks for your concern". The admins would then get an email or maybe it would show up in a section in the dashboard that would let the admins investigate any posts flagged by users and then they can decide whether to edit, delete or…

  12. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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?

  16. Renaming buttons on the forum for replies and new threads

    I have noticed that every time my forum users start a brand-new topic, they do so by adding it as a comment to a previous topic. I'm sure this is because the New Comment button is the only one they see as they are reading through the forum (unless they go back a page, which they don't know to do).

    I would really like have a New Topic button on that page, too. I'd also like the "New Comment" button changed to Post Response which I think makes more sense to users.

    Thanks! -Bradley

  17. Default setting for forum email frequency

    It would be useful to have a global setting for the default forum email frequency -- immediate or weekly. If this is not feasible I think that the default should be weekly. Many members object to
    receiving too-frequent emails.

  18. 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.

  19. 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!

  20. Auto Generate Event Reports?

    My board members like to see a weekly list of registrations for all events, as well as reports frequently to see how many people have signed up for events. Is there a setting to create an auto generated report to go to the event creator so this doesn't have to be done manually?
