    Sponsors page links/adverts
    Hi @Robin I have just noticed that you have a sponsors board containing links on this site. Would you be willing to share how you did this? Not that I have any sponsors yet (site in early stages) but for the future but I thought i could use the method for paid advertising.
    i hope you can help and don't mind me asking.
    Thanks

    Priority Support Service
    Hi SE Staff

    Can there be any chance to have a high priority support service which can be made paid in case something is critical and need to be addressed quick.

    Why I thought it should be an option, today we are having problem accessing our website, we can't even access admin area and as its all hosted on your server the only way to address is to write a support ticket.

    Support tickets sometime get answered quick and sometime it takes up to 24 hours which is alright in most cases and I never had issue with that but today really want to get this answered as soon as possible or at least something to tell us status of our hosting account.

    I think our hosting account should have some sort of warning/ service status display area to show health of our hosted account / server.

    Hope it can be sorted out quick.

    Thanks

      Kimmie I had this issue as well. I was not able to view my site by domain but could view it voicebee.socialengine.com. In the Admin Panel (Site Info) I had my domain listed as voicebee.com. Then I changed it to www.voicebee.com and it corrected the issue. Hope this solves your issue.

      Jung Kim Hi Jag, I can't seem to find a support ticket from you, but you need to update your DNS IP to 184.169.138.136. Please open a ticket and ask for me if you have any questions!

      JAG Thanks [1007,VoiceBee] and [124,Bogdan].
      Yes http://aquariumwall.socialengine.com/ is working and I will be checking my domain name configuration to see what got changed.


      Cheers, Jag

    Linking to a chatroom (mobile view)
    That space is pretty handy,so why not link it to a universally mobile friendly chatroom?

      eric I did buy it lol. I actually purchased cometchat but to get the mobile integration was a higher price [250,Drew Frey] I may in the future upgrade it though.

      Kimmie [250,Drew Frey] , this is awesome. Thanks for sharing.
      • 2
      Drew Frey 1st of all, that is an incredible case. You should buy it.

      2nd - Have you looked into CometChat? It works on all mobile devices and allows users to chat from wherever they are! Here's some more info: http://www.socialengine.com/blog/2013/03/21/cometchat-socialengine-cloud/

    Image name and SEO
    Hello,
    I think photos name is one of the important things in SEO of our network, so I always named my image before upload to the site, but I see that the images will not keep original name after posting. It will display as numbers or something like that. Anyone can help to keep original name of images or SE have any plan to make it possible?
    Thank you.

      Rick Von Ruden SE Cloud uses photo post title as alt for pics automatically.

      seTweaks alt and title attributes in your image tags helps and if you're linking the images use a anchor text relative to both the image and your content and remember not to overdo it.

    Why don't you add a nice slider in your header?
    Did you know that you can create a new hearder for each template you use.
    I create a header2 and add it in one of my template!

    Can we make to see the full content of the link post?
    Hi there,
    I am learning about SE cloud. As you know, when we post a link it just show a short description of the post. It means that if member want to see full post, they have to point to the original. It can take your member to competition site maybe.
    Anyone can help to pull all the content of the post in the popup window?
    Thank you.

      Trieu Thanh Tuan [1007,VoiceBee] [2440,Robin] yes, I know it can violate the copyright in some countries. My community in Vietnam and we can do that. Anyone can help me? Thank you.
      • 2
      Kimmie Wouldn't that cause copyright problems if it pulled the entire content of a link post? I'm cool with it linking out to the source of the link. We don't allow postings to competition sites and at this point haven't ran into any problems with members violating this. If it does violate our TOU then the moderator will delete that content.

    What are the biggest challenges you're facing with your community?
    Feel free to share anything/everything here that you're struggling with.

    What would you have done differently if you were starting from scratch today?

    Thanks in advance guys.

      Kimmie I would say better communication with the SE teams about SE Cloud challenges. I know SEC is new and some information you may learn as support tickets come in, but there are some information we should have been made aware of. Namely, Private Site option is a problem with search engines, alexa and any others out there that need to crawl your site. Also, not all admins are coders, designers, developers and we have to pay others for these services. Therefore, communication needs to be a top priority between SE Team and admins so we don't have to spend money due to lack of communication.

      Next, I would say traffic and marketing, especially when you are on a budget.

      This is the only feedback right now but want to also let everyone know, overall I am 1000% satisfied with SEC and feel it is the best option for any new site.

      Edwin Rivera Here are my two cents!
      1. How we can improve or change the Mobile Design independently? Also, could we develop some documentation as seen with the widgets and themes (they are simple/helpful)?. Mobile applications are also key of success.

      http://community.socialengine.com/post/13750/idea-new-sections-page-templates-css-themes-for-mobile-applicati

      2. How we can share multiple or combination of posts (topic/link/photo etc.) in a single post?
      http://community.socialengine.com/post/60664/collage-post-idea-to-follow-the-trend-of-sharing-multiple-or-a-c

      I think those changes will help to improve the standards of SE cloud. However, we truly believe on this platform and we are not going back to SE PHP or other platforms that we carefully assessed; since I do not think that there is a platform as trendy/funcional/reliable/fast and constantly improving as SEC and with a great support team/global community/software development team. Together and focused, we will beat competition and we will create great niche communities.

    This cloud is looking o.k but very hard for beginner to get a grip of.In PHP version It was easy to d banners, ad new pages and ad codes.with this on..one has to be pretty advance to do anything at all and the way I see it I wont go past my 14 days trail...just to complicated to do anything

      Kimmie Hi [95,Marian Baranowski] . Welcome to the SEC community. You have stumbled upon a great platform, just give it a chance. It may seem overwhelming at first but you will get use to it. I don't code, design or anything but I have learned a lot from my new found friends on here, namely, [2440,Robin] and [6223,Arnfinn Ingebrigtsen] . These are my new friends and go to buddies and they are always willing to help. So give SEC a chance and give us a chance to help you. In a few weeks I betcha you will be helping all of us. Pray you are here to stay for the long run.

    Show nearest post by ( Visitor location )
    I'm working on a project but it requires that when users visit the site the first posting they could see would be related to their nearest locations, then if they want they can do custom search if they want. Just like every major dating site has. It's that even possible on SEC ?

    Also require for members ( show nearest member first to the visitor )

      Robin Me imagino para que lo quieres! Creo que una Api de Google puede ser añadido para identificar el lugar de la IP. Ya lo miraré.
