    Has Socialengine Cloud improved? - NO STATUS UPDATES YET?
    I am revisiting the Cloud version of Socialengine after a while away to see if there have been any improvments and it saddens me to say that the one feature I would have thought would have been added by now is the 'Status' update option for members when they post something.

    I am not talking a topic post, a photo post or a link post - the most used feature on any social network has to be the random 'status update'.

    It engages communities and drives interaction - and even the social engine php has it - so why is there a lack of direction with the cloud version of social engine by not covering all the main basic social networking fetaure options?

      Sam Why is it that this company starts something but never finishes it???

      marc In my opinion the cloud version of SE was rushed to ride on the 'cloud' tag. It realistically should only have been launched with the full SE PHP feature set built in.

      Arnfinn Ingebrigtsen It seems that the development on SEC is going slow..

    Deleting post returns user to sites main homepage
    When deleting a post from within a list the user is then re directed back to the sites main home screen/stream - I think the member should be re directed back to the content list within the list they were viewing

      Kimmie Makes sense and good idea.

      Robin I think it's just an error!

      monti I think it should be a page that is clearly telling him his post was deleted.

    Mobile Version Re Think Required - make it more like an App!
    On my IOS device the mobile version displays the sites media content very well, but after that all the sites options and features fail very badly.

    All the links (choose image for upload / members personal profile data) are way too small for the user to see correctly.

    When adding a post the pop up window is not correctly displaying on the device and as a user you end up having to zoom out to complete all the post details (category selection etc) - its as though the main site goes super small then adding a post it goes super huge.

    Maybe there should be more of an App feel to the mobile version instead of just showing a responsive version of the site.

    Give members a lading/homepage with IOS type buttons that offer the sites options - e.g. (Media Stream) (Make Post) etc

    simple wordpress theme example :

      Robin They've just inaugurated but I don't think they will change a lot.
      It will better for everybody to be able to do it by CSS when they clarify how we can manage it.
      That's in the roadmap [250,Drew Frey] ?

    Website icon on members profile
    Asking various test members about the profile design all of them did not realise that the blue website icon was actually for a link to the members website.

    I think we should have the option to have the link in text on the members profile, which simply says : Website Link

      Rick Von Ruden I like the icon as is. As others have stated you could create a page explaining how things work such as a FAQ or help page.

      Robin Yes see the new about page of [1134,Rick Von Ruden] on his new site. It's very nice and very usefull!

      Kimmie Hi Marc. Perhaps you can help them out by posting it on a FAQ page or a demonstration on a HELP page. Just a thought.

    Video Embeding - is there a whitelist built in?
    Tried adding videos to my test site other than YouTube and they wont embed - is there a built in white list of acceptable sites that the script uses?

      Robin I would try to add iframe in your post HTML tags settings and add your video in the comment

    Feature Post by admin from front of site
    currently you have to go to the posts made on your site within the admin control panel and select the feature option for the post from within there.

    Can we add a link for Admin's and Mod's on each post that we can just click to Feature that post?

    and an option from within admin to show 'only' featured posts?

    On the pop up image window on the pintrest style theme there isn't an actual link for the member to click to close the window, or i cannot see one on my test theme?

    Image rotate option
    maybe an auto rotate option for images, not everyone knows how to edit their photos before they share them

      Trieu Thanh Tuan You can integrate 3 party as photo editor. Just create a page and embed this code
      <center><iframe width="100%" height="600" src="http://pixlr.com/editor/"></iframe></center>

      Drew Frey Good idea [2380,marc] . What other options are you looking for? Maybe your top 3. I agree that it would be nice to add a photo editor but keeping it light and simple is really important too.

    Allow Status Updates for members
    Yes i see content is the focus with SE Cloud but I think that the little social features need to be extended to allowing members to just post a 'Status update' - a "what i'm doing/thinking" post.
      • 0
      Trieu Thanh Tuan Great idea, and I think you guys need to improve the "topic post", for example, have a button or somethings like that to add photo, link, format the text,...in this zone. Check the topic that I was posted at http://community.socialengine.com/post/3336/posting-feature-request. Thanks

      Drew Frey Where would you want this status update post to? You could create a 'Status Update' category so that members of the community could (like a Topic) share what it is they're doing that way.

    iOS mobile members profile not viewable
    Using the Pinterest theme I'm finding you cannot view a members profile correctly. Anyone else having same issue?

      marc interim fix given by support, many thanks.

      This error was only happening on the STREAM Cloud Theme when viewing a profile on an IOS device.

      The interim fix is to go to > Appearance > Page Templates page and replace your profile.html template with the following:


      <script type="x-engine/func" data-func="template" data-name="header"></script>

      <div id="page_profile">
      <div class="profile">
      <div class="widget fg profile_info">
      <div class="photo">
      <div class="left">
      <script type="x-engine/func" data-func="member-photo"></script>
      </div>
      </div>

      <div class="stats">
      <div class="right">
      <script type="x-engine/func" data-func="member-name"></script>
      <script type="x-engine/func" data-func="member-options"></script>
      <script type="x-engine/func" data-func="member-about"></script>
      <script type="x-engine/func" data-func="member-stats"></script>
      </div>
      </div>
      </div>
      </div>
      <div class="main">
      <div class="widget fg widget_lists">
      <script type="x-engine/func" data-func="member-lists" data-lists-max="10"></script>
      </div>
      <div class="widget fg">
      <script type="x-engine/func" data-func="feed" data-type="member" data-gallery-mode="true"></script>
      </div>
      </div>
      </div>

      <script type="x-engine/func" data-func="template" data-name="footer"></script>
