    What Social Network Should We Integrate Next?
    LinkedIn or Google+

    Which one would be more helpful to you?
      • 4
      Edwin Rivera LinkedIn is imperative and I would prioritize it over other social networks- Some of our networks will target specific niche markets (i.e. professionals) and the integration with Linked in will be imperative for our success. Please include it in the Sign-in process, the Invite friends section and other areas that can be integrated as Facebook/Twitter.
      Thanks for your continued improvements and outstanding job with SE Cloud. We truly appreciate it.

    Moderators can see "social engine" logo in the admin panel.
    i'de like moderators to see the sire logo in the admin panel rather than the SE logo. no offense, you logo is great and all. :)

    Photo Post - MULTIPLE PHOTOS
    it would be so cool if a user could upload multiple photos in one post. like a little gallery. even if it was limited to 4 or so.
      • 2
      Alex Benzer Do service do you (and your users) use to store photos? Dropbox? Google Drive? Instagram/tumblr?

      Might be really interesting if we integrated with a storage service to let you post photos you're storing there, rather than desktop uploads. Thoughts?

      Rick Von Ruden I suggest you fix the IE9 photo upload bug first.

      Soundman i think instagram is the way to go.

    SE5 Access to 3rd Part Developers
    Hello SE Team,

    How can we access SE 5 to start developing for it ? I know the API is not launched yet and I'm talking about the custom themes.

    Will you give access to the developers ?
      • 3
      Alex Benzer So currently, you can easily download one of our stock themes, make any changes you want, and re-upload it. Or you can just edit it right within the theme editor - but if you want to separate it from one of the stock themes, it's smart to make a copy this way.

      In the next few days, we'll be publishing a full doc explaining all the widgets you can use within the themes, their parameters, syntax, etc. This should really open up the theme system to designers/developers, and should enable you to create almost anything you want. We'll be rolling out more widgets in the coming weeks, as well as a more formal API.

      Hire-Experts I'm sure that Webligo will provide special access for SE Cloud for 3d party developers. Hope to see them as soon as possible so we'll be able to go ahead and develop great things for SE Cloud platform :)

    Need feedback: Likes vs. Upvotes
    I have a question for everyone. For your SE Cloud site, do you plan to use up/downvotes or likes for reactions to posts and comments?

    We are trying to know what we should make the default for new SE Cloud sites. Thanks!
      • 2
      monti I would use likes because i don't want any negativity. a user getting down voted heavily will probably never come back again.
      • 1
      Kimmie It should be "likes" only. I have chosen to use up/down voting for my site and came up with a cool way down votes are to be used. At least I think it's cool ;-).

      Soundman i like the up/down arrows.

    Shawn's Feature Requests
    Not sure if any of these have been proposed before:

    1. To be more organized, under "hot" "new" "top rated" tab, the ability to select which category's post to display. For example, to only display the "hot" "new" "top rated" posts under the "feature requests" category.

    2. The ability for admin to create multiple categories, For example, for a community sharing news and tips for smartphones, the ability to create the 1st category based on companies (Apple, Sumsung, Nokia....) and 2nd category based on phone types (for Apple, iphone 4, iphone 5...., for Sumsung, Galaxy S2, S3....).

    3. To echo other's thoughts about the commenting system, a powerful commenting system would be key to the success of a community based on SE5 which is all about sharing and commenting IMO. It should be able to

    A: handle hundreds of comments
    B: handle multiple layers of comments
    C. easily browse first or last comments
    D: ........

    I hope you can consider some of these features. Thanks!

      Drew Frey Thanks for these awesome suggestions [242,Shawn Ye]

      monti Shawn, I love and share your suggestions.

      I want the sub category idea as well: https://community.socialengine.com/post/1005/sub-categories-for-posting
      • 1
      Alex Benzer [242,Shawn Ye]

      1. That's already implemented, just not setup here on this demo. The feed widget lets you specify a category and sorting method, and you can create multiple pages with any label you want for each combo of these settings.

      2. Currently the admin can only create one set of categories. But we'll think about a 2-tiered category option.

      3. Totally agree with you. This baked-in commenting system supports flat comments or layered comments, voting or likes, etc. You can also easily replace it with Disqus or Facebook Comments

      Edwin Rivera Team- I am wondering when do we expect major changes on this platform and re- focus on product development vs just fixing issues with cosmetic changes. We do really desire to develop strong communities and our businesses as you evolve; however we can not do it if your goals are not in alignment with our needs. I am customer since 2012 and I am not fulfilled to launch our community.

      seTweaks Is there a technical limitation in the application/database that won't allow you to make posts editable ?
      • 1
      Rick Von Ruden Sure would be nice to see the SE Cloud development roadmap very soon. I really want to start a new cloud site but am waiting until I can see SE development plans for SE Cloud. Need member ability to edit posts and comments before I try SE Cloud again.

    SE Cloud Maverick Homepage (coming this fall)

    SE Cloud Maverick HomePage


    I tried several times to find a way to create a great homepage without the inconvenience to create a new template or to use invitation mode.

    "At the end I found it with only few CSS & Jquery changes" 

    Features: 

    - Full Screen Size
    - Sign In or Create Account (instead Invitation)
    - Search
    - Use your current homepage
    - Few CSS & Jquery
    - Available for Board Theme

    Let me know if you're interested!
      • 1
      Robin Dear followers,
      If you use Board Theme you can try to add this jquery in the header to get a similar aspect.

      <script type="text/javascript">
      $(document).ready(function() {
      if ($(".profile-link").length != 0) {
      $("#page-hot #header_wrapper").css("height", "40px");
      $("#page-hot #header_wrapper").css("position", "fixed");
      $("#page-hot #header_wrapper").css("background-color", "#F8F8F8");
      }
      else {
      $("html, body").css("height", "100%");
      $("#page-hot #header_wrapper").css("height", "100%");
      $("#page-hot #header_wrapper").css("position", "relative");
      $("#page-hot #header_wrapper").css("background", "url('http://media.ieverythingtech.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/06/W8IdvVk.jpg') no-repeat fixed center center / cover rgba(0, 0, 0, 0)");
      $("#page-hot #header_wrapper .left").css("display", "none");
      $("#page-hot #header_wrapper .right").css("position", "fixed");
      $("#page-hot #header_wrapper .right").css("left", "40%");
      $("#page-hot #header_wrapper .right").css("top", "50%");
      $("#page-hot #content_wrapper ").css("display", "none");
      $("#page-hot #footer_wrapper").css("display", "none");
      }
      });
      </script>

      Enjoy!

    Communication
    [250,Drew Frey] [52,Jung Kim] [37,Alex Benzer] Just wanted to start with you guys are always the best and have always attended to all our needs. So please do not take this in the wrong way. I run my site like I do a business, and just like you probably do I want to know when something might happen. If all possible, could you please help SportzHype and all other SE members by giving a heads up when the site will go down and a rough estimate of how long? I rather plan for it, then get caught of guard. Thanks and have a great weekend!
