Anything that you can think please post a topic. on ezPortal.
Could be new ezBlock ideas, bugs, layout changes anything that you think would be helpful.



If you are no longer using ezPortal what are the reasons why? If it is another portal what does that portal offer that ezPortal did not.

I have been using easy portal for a few years, tried another one but this was my favorite one and I have no plan to change it.

I don't have many suggestions to improve  ezPortal but there is a couple features I would like to have for block permissions.
- Being able to set permissions based on members groups to collapse or not the blocks.
- Give block access or not to members based on post count.

About bugs, I don't know if it is one but when you don't use the portal home page fonction, it seems there could be a duplicate content with the URL such as domain.com/index.php domain.com/index.php?action=forum

I use SimplePortal but I'm testing in localhost is EZPortal that DreamPortal.
Unfortunately, I encountered problems with EZPortal:
- Once installed you can not uninstall it correctly: it gives errors in many files. Php
- The shoutbox whack with some skin as Dolphin_22 (do not read the message on)
- The management of the configuration of the blocks is unclear, complicated and not intuitive.
- No translation into Italian

For now I have found these defects though, continuing in the tests, I'll find them recommending other

I just came back from vacations and saw this. I want to create an elaborated reply with some ideas but I wanted to know when will you stop accepting them for this next release of ezPortal.

I think the most important is a better and deeper integration with other SMF Hacks products, in my case, the Gallery Pro and Ad Seller Pro.

Here's some suggestions I would like to have:

General:
- Bring "Powered by ezPortal" to the bottom of credits where is also the SMF and other credits (on the Gallery there are 2 "Powered" that are not even aligned...  doesn't look good)
- Create a Facebook, Twitter and other social networks block to like/subscribe/etc


Gallery Pro:
- The Recent Picture block could be more similar to Recent Pictures mod, ie, have the ratings and the "List All" link on the title
- The Recent Picture block to have the option of number of photos to show
- Had a block for the Top Rated with a defined period of time (in days so it can be defined per day, week, month, year)
- Create a search Block for the Gallery
- On all blocks containing images from the gallery, have the possibility to choose what to show (poster/number of views/number of comments/rating)

AdSeller Pro:
- Create a simpler mechanism to associate Ads defined on AdSeller Pro and the Blocks. The best would be define an Ad on AdSeller and then on the Block, we should only have to identify the ad number.

For now is all that I remember. I will try to bring more suggestions later.

1. ezBlok: A new ezblock for creating pop-up menus

2. ezBlock "News": Option to view new posts only or new and replies.  (see here)

3. Option to insert code, to view text, image, or menu anywhere in the portal and not necessarily within the block or in the header. So you will not be affected in the case of ezPortal updating.

4. All language strings inside the language file.  (see here)

I have some ideas/suggestions for ezPortal:
1. If admin set a Board News Block at the Mainpage, let him get option to show Pages: [1] 2 3 ... 11 at the Bottom of the Block (like SimplePortal).
2. EzPortal should have Guestbook Module.
3. Return the preview page when member logged in.
Thank you!

Create a ezBlock with a slider that can be used for diverse circumstances, ads, gallery pics, featured topics, etc (example: http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=2972 )

Create a ezBlock that can be feed from twitter by searching Hashtags and Twitter Lists (and not only Twitter Usernames). Btw, I can't seem to have the Twitter block working (message is always the same "Twitter feed loading") so I don't even know if it only shows tweets from that username or tweets where that username is mentioned but the best was to include mentions and retweets.

I'd like very much to see a Front page option that lets you parse, selected Categories, to display and also have panels options or line up panel options example:
