  1. Fully adjustable additional pages.

    Dear Oxwall DEV team.

    Can you give us possibility to create page with page customization option, colums and Custom text/HTML widgets (like main page)? I thik people want to create news pages with sections, but they can't :( ,becouse in custom pages is only one HTML text section, it is very complicated to create normal page with only one HTML section.

    Why Oxwall do not give us custom pages with widgets, colums, and customization button ,like dashboard, main page, and profile page have?

    We already have a facebook and google +, I want that my site would be different from…

    • Comment time refresh like FB.

      With facebook whilst staying on one page the comment autoupdates/refreshes the time instead of manually refreshing the page. I would love to see this implemented as I was disappointed to find that cron does not autorefresh the time and it needs to be manually done from moving from one page to another.

        • Tag user in posts,photos,and videos like facebook

          Users can tag other users in stuff and they will receive a notification for it like on facebook this would improve user interactions a lot.

                • Improved Forum Tools ("Today's Posts" and "New Posts (since last visit")

                  Dynamic forums like PHPbb and Vbulletin have clickable links to view "today's posts" and "new posts" (posts since last visit). These bring you to a search of all the most recently active threads depending on which search you complete. This would be VERY useful. As it is now, in order to find new activity on the forum, you have to look for "new" flags and then explore that subforum area for "new" threads. It'd be easier to have a one stop shop to view all the most recently active topics to reply to them. Would increase forum useability and should…

                  • Download area

                    There should be an area where members can download music/files/images and videos.

                      • Group Chatroom/chatbar

                        The site instant messenger only lets you chat with friends, unless you remove the friends feature, which is not really an option for my type of site. If we could have a chatroom feature where everyone could chat interactively, which is conveniently fixed at the bottom of the page like the instant chat, that would be awesome. Ning used to have this feature, but they updated their platform and it no longer has any chat.

                          • Make Comments Editable

                            It would be good for the comment owner to be able to go back and edit a comment after posting. Sometimes the there are spelling errors or the wording just doesn't come across as intended. Rather than deleting the comment and starting over it would be nice to be able to edit the comment. Additionally many bulletin boards have this feature and go step farther and show the date and reason for the edit.

                              • keep Gif images active and attachable for all of oxwall

                                GIF images .gif have been and will continue to be as much a part of being social and social sites as font and color choices. We need to keep GIF images fully attachable, fully includable, and fully usable within the oxwall framework. Even if that means we need to develope a new class branch and directory all by themselves.

                                    • Group Organization - Tabs, Categories and/or Alphabatize

                                      I have over 80 groups on my site and the list is growing. I would love to organize these into Categories or separate them into tabs within the Groups Page. Alphabetizing the list of groups would really help a lot too.

                                          It would be nice if we can allow user to have private photo album
