    • I assure you, we too :-)

      Can't wait to start using these

      Can you talk a bit about the "Wiki" module by giving some examples of use? Is it something like Wikipedia?

      • Can you elaborate on what each module does?

          more like https://www.notion.so/ - it's a very exciting developmment, essentially creating a new way to create pages and compile content - also including the macros that Andrew Boon demonstrated here: https://una.io/page/view-discussion?id=4393

          • Wiki is a completely system feature and a module in UNA and by far the one with most potential. There will be more modules made around the system wiki tooling, too. AlexT Is writing a manual now, so we will be posting more details about it, but in a nutshell it’s a way to create any type of structured resource repositories with collaborative editing and versioning. It also has its own URL composition, outside of the usual UNA  /page... model  

            For example, you can create things like:

            • HELP section with URLs like domain/help/xyz with user tips, FAQs, tutorials, etc. Media can be embedded  from other site modules using Macros.
            • DOCS section for a product documentation with collaboration tools.
            • LIBRARY for educational projects pulling together links, texts, attachments, etc.
            • NOTEBOOKS for personal free form note taking. 
            0 0 0 0 0 0
            • Each one warrants a post of its own. So only in short for now:

              Credits - your own on-site currency, which can be bought or sold, can be used as payment method in Market or for paid levels.

              Badges - special visual identifiers assigned by Admins. Can be used to give “verified” status or as “insignia“ of sorts that isn’t tied to membership levels.

              Audit - admin-side actions tracker for reviewing what actions each member has performed.

              Wiki - collaborative page and content publishing with Macros.

                • Will it have docs, sheets, tasks, etc. like notion?

                  There will be the ability to create custom templates/styles for different requirements, similar to Notion. These templates/styles will be exportable and shareable, perhaps could be sold via Market. FYI we are still coming up with a name for Wiki templates/styles as both templates & styles are already used, any suggestions Mr Wordsmith?

                    • Yes, that’s what Macros are for - embedding content from other modules - like say video, posts, files, etc. And as we develop more modules you’d be able to embed tasks, charts, etc. Variations of the Wiki will offer predefined structures, much like Notion templates.

                              • I like "credits that can be used in the Market". How will credits be different than the points system? Differences? Similarities?  Also a suggestion that I was holding off on for the points system but I think would be beneficial if credits Is to come out. A credits integration button that users can sell art, files, sounds uploaded on timeline. The user can post say an art picture file that sells for $5 credits. Another user can buy a digital copy of that file that when paid for would allow the buyer to download the file. The file or picture, sound, etc would be auto deleted after purchase or deleted after a certain amount of purchases determined by the user. Another example a user is selling Art and wants to sell 3 limited downloads. After 3 bought downloads the art image deletes itself.

                                • Credits is just a currency medium essentially. Points is about rewarding activity   They can be used together - buy/sell points for credits may be a good idea to decouple points from actual money to protect from fraudulent withdrawals In cases when Points are accrued through some unexpected spam technique.

                                  You can use credits to directly mimic real currency - $ € £.... and run it as a way to simplify checkout on micropayments, or as a way to collect commissions from community vendors (By buying back credits from them at reduced rate).

                                                      • Hi guys, great developments. I will like to be excluded from auto update for the new beta version. I've successfully made my website stable for a couple of months and members are gradually picking interest in the website. It won't be a good time to implement new updates for me. So until I'm sure about this new version 11, I don't think I want to update for now 

                                                        I guess I just need to turn off auto update from the studio settings right?

                                                                        There are so many other important features a Business Directory should have that I haven't listed.    I'm not sure I have the skills and/or time to build such a project.

                                                                          Other features to allow or limit on each business listing:  

                                                                          - Featured  (ad displayed more prominently , allow for  Logo, Link to business website, Title size (character limit), Phone:, Fax:, Address, Zip code, Map (e.g. openstreetmap), Hours, Email, Email to a friend, Print, Reviews (text), Ratings (stars), QR Code, Social Links

                                                                          3)  each plan can time based, e.g. Set to expired in 30 days, 1 year, etc. 

                                                                          4) automatic email or some sort of automatic notification of:   registration, listing ad approved by admin, notice of listing ad expiration in 30 day (or whatever # of days prior to expiration a notice will be sent, rejection notice, etc.

                                                                          5) payments system set up so when payment is made, business listing is automatically set up to expire at the end of determined time (30 days or one year from payment date. 

                                                                          6) Search feature to no only search for business base on: country, state/province and city identified but search searches:  title, and tags (I'm assuming searching body text is not advisable).  

                                                                          7) ban IP addresses

                                                                          8) ability for users to flag a business listing as:  fraudulent, etc,

                                                                          There are so many other important features a Business Directory should have that I haven't listed.    I'm not sure I have the skills and/or time to build such a project.  

                                                                          It would be great if UNA would have a Business Directory module... for this is something website owners can directly monetize on.  

                                                                          Hi Simon - thanks for this list of specifications, it looks like a great solution. We don't have a turnkey solution that fits this spec - I'd say that what we do have most of that functionality already within existing modules.

                                                                          Ads & Wiki module are both designed as skeleton modules, that along with other existing functions & modules, such as paid levels, payments, permissions, search, anti spam, reporting would become a robust business directory. This configuration would of course require some custom configuration, and perhaps a small amount of coding, but should be fairly readily achieved by one of our UNA developers or another develop you might find here. If you are interested in exploring further, please send me a PM and we can set up a meeting.

I tried to buy some just to test it out and a popup warning told me I cannot buy from my own store. When I pressed the OK button it lead me to the storefront checkout despite not having anything in my cart. The purchase buttons were too small and made the word purchase show outside the button. I had to change "purchase" to "buy" in Polygot. Fraola Editor now shows 3 sets of dots where the editor buttons used to be. I suggest when writing a comment that a popup like Facebook or have automatic Full window view that would give plenty of room for all the editor buttons on top while space to start writing.
