So I need to get an idea of what addons I may need developed. Here is my list and I'll even break it down for you. If you know one or more add-ons that do the following (or at least part), let me know. It's also possible some of these are already in Woltlab Burning Board or planned and I just have missed it.
So here is the list of addons I currently use and would be happy to find out if there is something to replace them (or will I need to have them developed).
"Stay Logged In" checked by default
I assume I can do this myself with a little css work. But if there is something else required, please let me know.
This isn't exactly needed, but sometimes people do like to post anonymously. I can live without it though.
This is a must... I need something that will let me use Mandrill.com as I will never, ever have a local mail server (ever). If anyone knows of such an add-on let me know. If not, look forward to this being developed and released.
What this does is it caches the sidebar and allows you to add your own widgets. It would be nice if there is an add-on like this. If not, I could live without it.
Desktop Version For Mobiles
This provides a link which forces mobile devices (cell phones or tablets) to view the full-screen version of a responsive design. It's helpful, but not required.
This is a must... This basically reads personal messages (pm's). I've had issues in the past... One example is someone was sharing torrents in pm's and they obviously were not going to report themselves. This little add-on made me aware of it and so I could remove them ASAP. So for security, it's required and if no one has such an add-on, expect me to seek a developer to release it.
This is a bb code trick where if you type [you] it displays the username of whoever views the thread. It's a cool little toy, but not needed.
This helps add amazon referral code to any amazon url link. Not needed, but would be nice.
This is prefered. This make the whole row clickable on a forum or thread and not just the text. Helpful for mobile devices.
This is prefered... This changes hotlinked photos into attachments. Good way to make sure a photo is always there. Also saves you from having to save it on your PC, then upload it.
Disable Invisible Status
This is prefered... I find people are less active if they think no one is online. To many people being "invisible" is not a good thing. If there is a default option to prevent people from doing that, all the better... If an add-on, also acceptable.
Email Idle Users
This basically emails people who have not visited in X many days / weeks / months ... You can set the time. It's nice, but not required.
Follow Me Postbit
Adds a follow link in the postbit. Not required and I am the developer of this add-on, so technically, I'm sure I can port this over myself. But if someone else has already made one... It would save me the trouble.
Total Forum Thread Views
You know how you can see how many times a thread has been viewed? This adds that function to the forums as well. It's nice if I can have it, but not required.
Back To Top
This adds a "back to top" button on the side. I know WBB has those on every post, but for the few places it doesn't have it; it maybe nice. It's not required.
This is sort of a bb code trick. You ever use IRC chat? /me changes into your username. It's not required.
Automatically sends out a monthly email once a month to show all the most recent threads. Would be nice.
Basically lets me make my own notifications. Can even assign it to individual user groups and urls. Can see an example of my "cookie notice" on my site http://sociallyuncensored.eu It's not required, but it would be helpful.
Number of Posts to Send Personal Conversations
This is a must... Keeps spammers and general spammers from going straight to the pm box and sending out mass pm's. If there is no alternative to this, I'll seek someone to develop it.
Password Strength Check
This tells a user when they are joining or changing their password if it's strong or not. Not exactly required, but would be nice.
Adds more ratings beyond just like or dislike. Not required, but would be nice.
This automatically detects a user's location and changed their prefered time zone for them when they first register. Not required, but would be cool to have.
s9e Media Pack
Adds more than youtube and other video sources. This is actually free open source; so I imagine it can be ported easily. http://s9e.github.io/XenForoMediaBBCodes/configure.html
Allows me to see what people search for. Not required.
Separate Sticky & Normal Threads
Suspect I can do this myself with a little css, but if someone has done it already, that would save me time.
Set Remember Me Cookie Time
Allows me to set the cookie time and how long someone is logged in for. Good for browsers that cut things short and need settings higher.
Shows all deleted post in an easy search. Not required, but helpful.
Makes a sitemap to submit to Google
When someone uses the "contact us", this automatically turns that "contact us" into a thread in the forum of my choosing.
Prevent double post
Helps prevent mistaken double post. Helpful, but not required.
Send an email to staff when someone click the report button.
Stop Spam Here
This is a must... Basically checks the StopForumSpam.com database when a user registers (joins). Good to prevent spammers and spam bots from joining.
Would be nice, but not required... Displays user moods (happy, sad, relaxed, ect...).
This does two things
1) Changes url into a friendly formats
example: http://www.google.com becomes Google
2) When you hover a url it shows you a small preview images
#1 is more sought after than #2, but it would be nice to have both.
So that is my list.... Some of these may already be part of WBB and some of these may already have alternative add-ons and maybe I've overlooked a few things. But any help would be good to have. Thanks in advance
