    I have arduino uno which is connected with Ethernet shield interfacing wireless Vibration sensor but I am looking for some IOT friendly solution in which want to send the data to internet cloud server database and display data on smartphones,
    But I need better solutions which help me to send the data of sensor directly to internet cloud.

      • photo

        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.

        • 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

          • Make Forum and Topic subscriptions consisten

            The inconsistency of subscribing to forums vs. topics is very confusing and difficult to explain to members.

            Current behavior for subscribing:
            You subscribe to forum on the forum page and then go to your Profile to change frequency. When you Create a Topic you get an option to subscribe and set frequency on the new topic page and don't need to go to your profile. Why can't you do the same for the Forum?

            Emails:
            If you subscribe to a forum you only get the titles as a summary. If you subscribe to the Topic you get the full post.…

              • 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.

                                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.

                                    • 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.

                                            Thanks for posting Rick, we’ll need more comments/supporters before we can proceed, but it’s a good suggestion.
