Update the theme variable and liquid documentation to include all variables and tags

It feels like documentation was the one thing that gets constantly overlooked, leaving us to work everything out by trial and error or hunting nuggets of insights from scattered answers on this site.

Time to do a total stocktake of your variables, functions, tags and filters. Let us know what we can use, so we can build more awesome nations.

Add RSVP's directly usings filters and lists

I would like to be able to directly add the results of a filter search (or, less good, a list) to the RSVP's of an event.

NB could do it all

Our campaign used Basecamp in addition to NB. Others have used Google. It would be worthwhile for NB to incorporate a list-serve option for threaded discussions & document collaboration. After that, maybe you'll want to build in project planning software, with a functionality similar to MS Project with Outlook. Meanwhile, NB is a great base for effective campaigning.

Single Sign On

We're working with a client who is using Nation Builder as their CRM, as well as the overall place to manage users within the application we are building (every app user must be in Nation Builder first, and we get the new users via API).

Unfortunately this means that the user ends up having 2 passwords: one for Nation Builder, and one for the application.  The cleanest way to avoid the awkward 2 password usability would be if Nation Builder had single sign on functionality.  I think the clients will get by for awhile with the multiple passwords, but I was wondering if there are any plans for a single sign on?

Add an "autoresponses" options alongside SEO & Social Media in the CMS

It would be great to pull up a list of all of the autoresponses in a Nation in the same way the SEO & social media tabs pull up a short cut to all the excerpts & default tweets in a Nation.

Allow Admins to set stricter password requirements

It looks like Nation Builder only requires a password to be 4 characters long.  Can we please have the ability to edit these requirements so passwords must be more secure?

Cutting Turf Via Household

Instead of showing number of people in the turf, show me how many HOUSEHOLDS are in that piece of turf.  Much more useful when setting up walk lists for volunteers.

Email blasts for both the prospects and the supporters

When sending an email blast one must decide whether it will be sent to the supporters or the prospects. In case you want to send it to both the prospects and the supporters you have to send the blast twice for each group which is a bit annoying and makes the dashboard look chaotic.

Could make it possible to send the blast to both prospects and the supporters at the same time?

Bootstrap Framework: Staged Donations

I have been using the basic bootstrap theme you are given the option of creating when creating new custom themes. However, it is not straight forward to add Staged Donations to. Having that either be stock on the theme (perhaps both staged and not stages with staged in comment tags) or a separate Staged Donations kit. This would make the feature's implementation on custom themes far easier.

Request To Add Primary Address Options

I would like to submit a system's enhancement suggestion.
Issue: When adding a New Person, the address field defaults to 'Home' as primary after saving the form. An address of an individual could be a work address and the form would save as 'Home (primary)'.
Suggestion: Include options to select primary address as 'Work', 'Mailing', 'Billing' as well on the initial New Person entry form. 
Workaround: If a work address is to be made primary, leave address field blank. After saving the new Person entry, navigate to the newly created entry and add the work address via Location/Work tab. Form saves as 'Work (primary)'.

enhancement of the redirect page

Suggest modification of the existing redirection code to translate a complete URL, including subpages and file names to handle situations where a new site with the same structure has been created from an existing sub site. In pseudo-code...

1 capture the complete incoming URL eg //www.site.org.au/subsite/xxx/yyy/zzz.pdf

2 translate the specified slug (subsite) into the redirection URL (http://www.subsite.org.au/)

3 append the text after the slug to create a new URL http://www.subsite.org.au/xxx/yyy/zzz.pdf

4 redirect the connection to the new URL

This code could would work that same way as the existing page if there is no text after the slug. It could even include an option to convert some or all of the URL text after the slug into other text for situations where the file structure on the new site is different from the old.

Email blasts in the activity stream of the recipients

Now it's possible to see emails sent to the recipient in his activity stream. Yet one can't see the emails sent to the recipient via email blast. Would it be possible to ad a feature that would enable the blast sender to see emails sent via blasts in the recipients' activity streams?

SCSS Source Mapping

Short and sweet: it'd be a great help to the Architect community if NationBuilder generated Sass source maps for "theme.scss" and "tablet-and-desktop.scss".

Thanks for thinking about it.

Form on Facebook Page to join Nationbuilder email list

I recently read that Mail Chimp offers a feature of adding a form to an organization's Facebook page that allows people to sign up for an email list through Facebook.  I'd love that feature on Nationuilder.  Here is what their website says:

MailChimp's Facebook integration makes it easy to add a signup form to your Facebook page.

Having your subscribe form connected to your Page is especially useful because it keeps your Fans from having to leave Facebook, or even your page, to sign up for your list. When you make things easy for your Fans and followers, they’re more likely to take action. And since they don’t have to leave Facebook, this makes your page more interactive and more sticky with very little additional effort.

Add Prefix variable into Email Blast

I'm looking for a way to add our supporters Prefix (eg. Dr, Hon) into an email blast - I note this isn't currently in the list of variables.  Is there a way around, and if not can I request it's added as a feature?

Keep carriage return in excerpt

When you display the excerpt of a page with {{ child.excerpt }}, you can't see the carriage return that you typed when you filled the excerpt in the backoffice. 

It'll be usefull to keep these carriage returns.

Suggestion Box as Forums: Call Array of Multiple Page's Activities

I have been able to build a forums-like system utilizing the suggestion box feature and thus far it is highly stable and effective. That was suggested in a previous feature request. However, I can not find a way in LIQUID to consolidate all the suggestion box activity from multiple suggestion boxes into a single stream. Each suggestion box page being a category. This feature would create a "Suggestions" widget which is very important in any forums system.
