Situations when we would like to see a list of each user's posts would include: when I know I posted something on a particular topic and want to follow up on it (and I forgot to subscribe to the topic) and I can't find it because the forum is large and I don't have time to sort through it all. Or, when I find a particular user's posts more helpful or informative than others, I would like to see what they had to say in their other posts on different topics. Also, we encourage members to be active on our forums and offer a reduced membership fee for a certain amount of participation - tracking this would be much easier if each member had a list of their posts. And of course, having the ability to see who is subscribed to a forum would help administrators communicate more easily with certain members depending on the member's interests.
I agree, it would be nice to see who is subscribed to a forum.
It would also be useful to see posts by each user - like in these WA forums when you click on the user's name and it brings you to a page with a tab that shows all of their posts. That is how I found this post; I was reading it in the general forum where Dmitry asked Chuck to repost it in the wishlist. So all I had to do was click a couple links instead of searching the wishlist forum.

I agree, a report like this would be nice. I received a survey from Wild Apricot and one question asked to describe our membership growth pattern over the last year. My answer was my best guess because I don't have specific numbers. The only way I can think of to get exact numbers is to look at each member's renewal date, but I don't have that kind of time. It would be very helpful to have a report on the number of active members in each calendar year.
My members keep adding new comments to existing topics/threads thinking that they are adding a new topic. Just wondering if there is any way the forum buttons could be more user friendly?
Currently, a member is given the option to "reply" or "new comment" Maybe the "new comment" button could change to "comment".
I would also like to clear the payment transaction log or have the option to delete some transactions, especially useful for all the transactions I entered as tests.
All posts and replies are published immediately (subject to the user having appropriate access rights on the particular forum)
Ability to moderate posts/comments
- 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.
First off, I really do love your software. Secondly, any idea on when forums will be able to be moderated? It would be perfect if I had the ability to approve/reject messages, that way I could reject any spam messages.
It's in the member only section (not publicly viewable) on association ce (dot com)
Is there a way to remove "administrator" from a Forum Summary page? I would like to have the label "administrator" removed from my name in the "last message" column on the summary page. Shown below is the code I currently have. The code below does remove it from the actual post, just not the summary.
/*remove administrator from forum posts*/
/*remove author from gadget*/
/*remove administrators name from blog posts*/
