This is one of the best plugins ever.

Since we have started using it on a site to entice guests to signup and link to the signup page our registrations have increased phenomenally

Besides that it is an incredibly versatile app to provide all sorts of calls to action.

Simply wow! Installation was a breeze and the response needed for the generated license key from the developer theJackal84 was almost instantaneous. Just created our first Sticky Note and targeted the desired user groups. Wrote out an instructional "how to" for staff. What I really like about this product is the ability to send a note to a specific member anonymously. On my board specific staff members have a problem of being targeted at times by disgruntle members and if staff issues them a warning the action is interpreted as throwing fuel on the fire. This allows for a soft warning by an anonymous staff member which may hopefully address undesired behavior before Staff actually issues a formal warning. Not to mention it can be used to encourage a specific member's behavior, issue technical advice, bring new features to the attention of others etc without starting a pm conversation.

Top notch product!

Thank you,

Sticky Notes is a very nice and lovely addition to every forum. It gives your users a very special way to communicate with each others. I plan to give this feature members of a paid usergroup. Developer is very supportive. Thanks.

This is a great app with a lot of potential to engage current members as well as entice some new ones!  A very short learning curve for an app that works exactly as described.

@TheJackal84 is also one of those conscientious developers who listens to feedback and works diligently to implement new ideas.  That's the kind of thing that makes me want to look at his other apps and, if I purchase them, to purchase with confidence.

Keep up the great work!

Great app.  It really has increased the social experience on our discussion board. 

One suggestion for the next update would be to have the users name appear in the post. This would really create a more personalized experience.

Great app.

Fantastic little addon to make sure someone doesn't miss out on something important.  One problem I have though, I made a test note with a pic and the picture won't go away when I edit the note.  The text will change, but the picture will remain there.  Small issue, but the overall addition outweighs this.

I wish it was possible to allocate different star ratings to different aspects of the application/plug-in.

I've given it three stars here – but that's because of the installation problems and also a glitch and also a missing feature.

In terms of usefulness – it's definitely five stars. It's a great application once I had it installed and all the teething problems were sorted out. Bear in mind that it's only been fully installed this morning so we've only had a few hours of experience with it. Also, it's clear that the installation problems that I'm going to refer to don't seem to have been experienced by anyone else giving these reviews.

We have a very large forum. We recently converted from vBulletin and we are all trying to get used to the new environment.

We had a previous version of stickynotes installed and I have to say that installing that was problematic and it took several goes to get it working – including having to clear the cache and disable the small number of plug-ins that we had at that time. Bear in mind that at that time our forum was almost a virgin Invision installation but unfortunately the one modification which caused problems was this stickynotes.

This time we decided to upgrade stickynotes and by now the forum has quite a number of plug-ins and applications – although the theme is absolutely standard except with some colour changes.

The installation didn't go smoothly. The process had to be repeated several times and eventually it nearly brought the forum down and we were obliged to revert to default, disable plug-ins, clear the cash et cetera.

Eventually the application installed – I have no idea why it suddenly happened – but we then found that a large number of our settings had been changed – sometimes to defaults – and sometimes it simply just changed.

It's taken a couple of hours to win things back to the way that we wanted.

However, the stickynotes application is in place and so far it seems to be working very well indeed. It's extremely useful because it means you can message people instantly and place a very prominent message in a prominent place on their screens and there's no doubt that anybody is even mildly attentive is going to see it. There's also an opportunity for those people to reply to you.

One great thing is that you can into the permissions so that only the site team can send the stickynotes but anyone can receive them and any recipient can reply back to the site team.

There are two ways of sending stickynotes. One is global – and that means that you effectively send a message out to anybody in a particular group. That can be all of your users if you want – and we have almost 400,000. Alternatively, you can send out personal messages addressed to a single user. Very nice touch is that at the bottom of each post is a link to send a sticky note and the message form pops up and will automatically find its way to the author of that post. This is really convenient and it's a great way to send instant messages.

One surprising thing seems to be that if you want to send personal messages, you can only send it to a single addressee. It's a bit of a shame that it's limited in this way – and I'm not too sure why this is although maybe there is some very practical coding reason for this. However, if you are sending private messages you can send them to as many individual recipients as you want and I'm surprised that the stickynotes system doesn't allow you to do that – or at least I don't think it does – because this would save having to prepare several duplicate messages if you want to send to more than one person.
You can take that as a feature request. If there's something I've misunderstood – then I apologise now – please let me know how you can send personal stickynotes to several people.

Secondly, this seems to be a bit of a glitch in my view. When I tried to send a sticky note containing a URL, URL didn't wrap and in fact went beyond the stickynotes. Of course the message did its job – but it didn't look very elegant.


Once again, it may be a coding problem that prevents this being addressed – but it would be nice if the URL would wrap and that the entire message appeared within the confines of the to connect.

As I've already said, I'm not aware that other people have had a similar installation problem – but if you do, then maybe it should be reported here. Once it gets working, it's brilliant.

Once it is installed and settled it's definitely a five-star application


However, the problem with the non-wrapping URLs continues and it's a bit of a bother


I'd be very interested to see if anybody else could try including a long URL on a sticky note and seeing whether or not it wraps.
It spoils an otherwise very nice looking application

This program is worth its weight in gold! What can be said, the good ol' post it, now digitized! 

Recommendation: Take My Money

All in All: 4/5 stars! Great product! Mr. @TheJackal84, you have earned this consumer's medal of gold standard, you are both professional and polite with your work, even the small stuff. I appreciate you taking the time to show me step by step, and actually coming over to help me when I need it. Again as a consumer, we are in large, not programmers, so it is nice to be walked through the process! Your work is GREAT! The reason for 4 out of 5 because we can't have your head get to big.
