Few suggestions :)
« on: August 25, 2013, 01:41:17 PM »
Hello.


I have been working with this package for long time, and I have never seen an option to forbid someone from writing something on the chatbox of the simple portal.

I think that there should be added an option like ban list, and there, we will be able to temp ban, perm ban, and unban:
Accounts
IPs
Emails
Hostnames
etc

And of course that there should be ban list too.

Also, I think that there should be added an option for 'Removing your own shout', that the selected membergroups will be able to remove their own shout. It can help to prevent spams in case someone has a lot of typing mistakes, or giving one more feature to V.I.P members on the forum.

In addition, I suggest adding log to each time when a message is getting removed on the chatbox.

In case my first suggestion about banning someone from the chatbox will be accepted, then I also suggest adding logs to these bans and unbans from the chatbox too.

Moreover, I suggest options to let blocks to be seen by selected members and not only selected membergroups.

Furthermore, I suggest having an option to select membergroups to edit selected blocks, or chats, etc.


Thanks for reading, and I hope that at least one suggestion will be applied. :)

The majority of your suggestions can already be done via permissions.
Daily backups mean less headaches

I may be no coding expert but I am willing to help where I can.

In case my first suggestion about banning someone from the chatbox will be accepted, then I also suggest adding logs to these bans and unbans from the chatbox too.

Currently only members can post shouts in the shoutbox. So like we did here on this site, you can create a new group and deny this group's access to the shoutbox via shoutbox (custom) permissions. Then you can add the members that you don't want to use shoutbox into this group. I think it's a lot more practical than a ban system.

Also, I think that there should be added an option for 'Removing your own shout', that the selected membergroups will be able to remove their own shout. It can help to prevent spams in case someone has a lot of typing mistakes, or giving one more feature to V.I.P members on the forum.

In addition, I suggest adding log to each time when a message is getting removed on the chatbox.

I have considered this while I was coding the shoutbox the first time and decided that it's not worth the effort. I mean, it's just a shout after all. It shouldn't be a problem to have typos here and there. There might be a mod around here adding that functionality though. I'm not sure.

Moreover, I suggest options to let blocks to be seen by selected members and not only selected membergroups.

This sounds like a specific case and again having something like this in the default package isn't viable. You could again do this by a custom membergroup and permissions.

Furthermore, I suggest having an option to select membergroups to edit selected blocks, or chats, etc.

Blocks aren't modified very often, so this probably won't be added by default too. However you can give the Manage Blocks permission to trusted members of yours.

Thanks for reading, and I hope that at least one suggestion will be applied. :)

Thank you for your suggestions and sorry that we can't apply many of them because of various limitations.
And slowly, you come to realize... It's all as it should be...

How about adding an option to edit someone/your own shout on the chat? :D

In case someone swears, but he has an important information or something like that on the shout, but swearing is not allowed on the forum, we cannot really know what to do...

It can be useful also for mistakes, etc. :D

Editing shouts had been considered as well. That along with removal of shouts for members could be added in the future but they aren't on my priority list at this time.

I also suggest adding logs to the logs section, or simple portal section, and there, we will be able to find log of all the actions that forum staff members did which is related to something of the simple portal, like changing the configuration, something with the blocks, or articles, adding/removing/modifying a chat, and maybe also removing a shout from the chat. :D
