$17 · Renewal Term: $7/6 months

   (5 reviews)

5 Screenshots


  • Punch up those member hovercards!
  • Expansive backgrounds!
  • New "Yearbook Quote" feature!
  • Let your members flash some personality and drive member engagement!
  • Profile Fields available for use on the hovercard!
  • Can disable the hover feature and turn it into a click feature - makes these cards available to tablet and phone users!

This mod swaps out the usual member hovercard for a new template; one that emphasizes appearance and personality instead of just dumping profile information in a list which they can get by just visiting the member's profile anyways. The screenshots tell all!

What's there?
Big full-sweep coverphoto (support for default as well), all the new badge stuff, registration, online status, and more.

Where's that image coming from?
That's the member's coverphoto! If they don't have one the Invision Community default profile background stuff is used.

New Yearbook Quote Feature?
Although I debated sticking in a member's status update as the centered text, there are too many reasons not to, including not everyone is using status updates, often times those updates are throw-away notes about nothing, updated rarely, and so on. With a specific quote feature your members have the opportunity to flash some personality - be it describing themselves, Tinder-like blurbs, using a quote from a movie or video game, and so on.

Why not use the About Me feature from the profile?
That's a full editor field - images and lots of other things can go in there. This is meant to be simple and direct.

Can I change that name to something else instead of Yearbook Quote?
Yep! In settings. Hoverboard Quote, Hovercard Quote, Quote, Say Something, Tinder Blurb, whatever... Call it what you want!

Is this stuff also on the profile pages?
Yes - it's also where they add/edit it. Click the gear icon to have at it.

Can I use the Yearbook Quote feature but not the new fancy hovercards?
Sure. You can toggle on/off the use of the new hovercards in settings. To completely disable everything just toggle the plugin off in the ACP.

Profile Fields Too?
You bet! Select which ones to pass through to the template (admin-only and editor fields excluded at the moment). See the support topic for how to customize the display of these. Fields with short (length) text will work best here.

All the little content bits are in flex-boxes, including your profile field adds. Look at the screen shots to get an idea how they will flow in.

What are "Click Cards"?
You can actually disable the hover functionality of these member hovercards. When you do that, users will need to click the member avatar to trigger the display of the card. When the cards are set to hover-mode, they appear when the mouse cursor hovers over a member avatar and these will, since it is a mouse hover action, only appear to desktop users - tablet and phone users never see these cards. When you toggle the cards to click functionality that covers tapping and thse will now display to tablet and phone users just fine. This is a usability decision to be made by you and you alone. If you ask for my opinion I'd consider how many of my visitors are tablet/phone based before enabling this feature. If you have more mobile than desktop, go for it! You can always turn this off later. Version 5 adds the ability to apply this functionality to the user names as well.

Of course. If a member has not entered a quote yet, the box will appear only that member and no one else (mods and admins included), with text telling that member to add a quote. Once a quote is entered, the quote will appear to everyone AND mods and admins will have to power to also edit those quotes. Mod permission is being able to edit profiles, if a mod has that, they can edit these. And yes, mod/admin actions on these items will appear in the Moderators Log in case you have some mods/admins deciding to mess with people instead of actually correctly moderating inappropriate content (whatever that is for your community...)

Anything in the ACP?
Other than the plugin settings and entries in the Moderators Log, no, nothing in the ACP Member view or anything like that. All moderation takes place on a member's profile page in the Yearbook Quote block. If you have a member who continually abuses this quote feature by inputting stuff you don't want, the solution isn't adding more permissions to disable this feature on a member by member basis - the solution is to ban the member. 

Anonymous Users?
Yes, accounted for. Anon users can browse with little worry of being "found out".

Customs Available?
Sure! Some communities may want some community-specific information to appear on the hovercard. Not a problem. Expect to pay a (nominal one time fee) if it is something that can benefit all users of this mod in which case you are sponsoring a new feature for everyone (and paying to get it done now instead waiting for me to get around to it) or a (nominal one-time fee X 2) for a mod specific to your community only, provided it is doable.

V12 will have dark mode support. I've got some ideas on a few large improvements and that will take some time and likely push this into an application (its a plugin right now). I'll probably grandfather in old purchasers unless I lose my mind re-working it.



  • If you have other mods that push something to the member hovercards there is probably a 100% chance that this mod will not accommodate them as it is an entirely new template.
  • Version 11 is for 4.6 exclusively


Support available for the time being in the IPS Marketplace topic. You are allowed to use this, after purchasing a license and downloading this from the IPS Marketplace, on one live site and any test/dev sites you have. Additional live sites require additional license purchases. Renewals (per purchase) entitle you to updated versions and ongoing support. Support is limited to the default IPS theme and is for IPS license holders current on the application/plugin renewals (with a generous grace period). I'll give a hand, time permitting, to help you figure out what is wrong with your custom theme if there is a conflict but fixes in those cases will need to be made by your theme provider.

I received this file before it came out for free; to help the developer find bugs with it. But I purchased it the moment it appeared on the marketplace.

I have played around with this, and it's a very good plugin, a must have for anyone looking to modernise their members hovercards across the IPS suite, it also displays GIF's very nicely if you have that set up on your community too. I highly recommend this plugin and this developer who makes top notch; quality applications and plugins for IPS and has fantastic support! It's very easy to use and both as an Administrator and as a User, and it's an exceptionally good price.

I give 5 stars not only to the plugin, but to its creator. @All Astronauts is quite helpful and reachable. He promptly helped me with some issues and resolved all of them. Thank you very much.

Love this plugin! 

My goal for this is to make SOME members stand out. Similar to a business card - to use to promote themselves. I could then turn this into a "premium" perk while the default is turned into a more generic hovercard. (I just need to make this a per usergroup option which is missing.)

Response from the author:

And so it has...
