infinite scrolling, threaded and undisclosed ids these are all huge improvements for discussions... all of these upgrades make keeping a discussion on track much easier... nice work...
I think that it would be helpful to have the ability to click on a user name to see all previous posts by that user. For example, clicking on John Honovich would show me all of John's previous posting activity.
Ability to sent PM to other members
It would be good to have the commenter's website/company name appear next to their name on each post - makes it much easier to remember who's who.
Any suggestions to prevent unintended formatting within posts?
Font size appears to vary widely on my posts. I don't notice this on others' posts, so maybe I'm the only problem child :)
When I view internet explorer html source of my posts which show normal and small fonts, small fonts are always wrapped with this html code:
<p><span style="font-size: 11px;"> little font stuff </span></p>
I often take a while to draft comments, sometimes moving parts around by cutting and pasting. Maybe that's an issue?
So (don't know how this will turn out) I'm going to set up line 1 and line 2 below, then reverse their order by cutting line 2 and pasting it back above line 1.
Otherwise, any suggestions?
Horace, I filled a bug to fix this. I think it relates to our wysiwig editor (tinymce) in general. Sorry about that.
It becomes difficult to find the latest post in a discussion when there are recent replies nested under the original post, rather than at the top or bottom. Could you offer an option to sort all posts by date; perhaps with each having a pointer to the original post the poster was replying to?
UBB (ultimate Bulletin Board) does that Carl.
It is used on many of the forums I participate it.
It's not very expensive either, if John ever decides to look for alternatives: http://www.ubbcentral.com/purchase.php
The ability to minimize a single thread of replies.
Colourised replies if they're new so you can quickly find new comments.
After I've read an article or discussion, I still enjoy revisiting it to reviewing the ongoing community discussions. I am hunting for the chronological order "switch" so that I can efficiently read just the more recent contributions that I haven't yet seen.
Is it possible to allow users make a profile selection to view discussions in either chronological or threaded order?
Right now, that "swtich" is below the entry article or comment, which vary widely in length. If it were either at the top or at the bottom of the web page, you could quickly click it without paging about looking for it. If you could set your personal default sort order, you might wish to click on it very infrequently. Any of those approaches would be a convenience feature that would save a little time and trouble.

I think you guys put alot of thought and effort in to this. I hope you keep the classes simple to understand just like class 1.
Not sure if this should fall under discussion improvements but here is my 2 cents:
I think IPVM has grew quite much... do you consider rolling out an app for Android or iOS?
With perhaps some of the tools (like the camera finder, etc)
And or viewing the latest discussion trends (sort of a facebook format / twitter) <-- related to this topic.
Of course with a monthly fee for the APP. I think it will be a good value for the customer.

Using Firefox, its spellcheck does not work when writing a post. Would be a "nice to have" if there was some way to permit it to work.
I just have issues overall viewing the site on my smartphone using Google Chrome. Even after logging in it acts as if I still haven't done so. Any thoughts as to whether this a user, app, or functionality issue?
Email reply to discussions.
If we are subscribe to a discussion and get an email alert when a new post has been added and you want to reply to that specific post and you click on :Read and respond at: http://ipvm.com/forums..............." in the email your directed to the top of the post. You have to scroll for the post you want to reply to that the post came from, if a discussion is short it's easy to find but when the discussion is long it takes a while to find the one you want.
Hope you understand this?
John IOS iPad and iPhone most of the time, when in office use a windows laptop in Chrome also or Explorer, honestly never replied from the laptop.
So its IOS problem
Weren't we able to edit a post after it was posted maybe three years ago?
John thanks for editing the website discussion I started..
