This application is amazing, it makes posting very efficient and I can see it being very useful to maximise the amount of posts members with less time can do - simply because it provides an overview of the topics setup within the feeds configuration.

Giving members a time saving platform, which comes with handy feature such as the ability to like comments and see the whole entire discussion.

I think this has a wide range of possibilities.

1) It could be used as a means to give something back or add value to member groups such as VIPs (people who help support users' sites)
2) An alternative to the inbuilt activity streams (promoted within a site as a means to reduce loading times etc)
3) Used as a way to generate engaging discussions (maximise the detail in the discusses, get people involved and then plug on social media to draw engagements in)

I would also like to add that @onlyME has added several of my suggestions already, and provides excellent support. The advanced topic feed application is a serious must have community addition for anyone serious about their community enjoyment/members.

With the support of others, I would like to see the following features considered as I feel it would improve the application even further (please give this a like if you agree or like the feedback).

** Ability to quote comments in replies.

This is a feature I would most certainly love to see added, as it would allow members to have the full topics functions when posting via the application. With the addition of multi-quote function, it would be a simple but effective feature.

** Add icon to identify if a topic is new or has been replied to by the user.

I'm hopeful this would be added, as at a glance you could forget if you have replied or not. Just a simple font awesome circle for new content and a star for content which has been replied to already. These markers would make it much easier to identify new content which needs supporting, whilst giving a visual presentation to know where you in terms of posting.

** Comment updates - 'User(s) has replied notification' in line with the advanced feed.

This would be somewhat tricky with the notification sounds, but it would be a great feature in my opinion. Sometimes when you're writing a reply, a member will come along and beat you to the punch or maybe write something add even more value to your own comment. Rather than editing, having a function to see where and all the updates would be a pretty cool feature, if it could be handled in a way whereby it didn't become distracting or annoying.

** More feed settings, so the ability to list new topics only, topics without replies, unread topics only.

Please, please, please can we have more useful ways to configure an advanced feed, I would welcome ways of filtering what is new, what hasn't gotten replies and unread topics. This would allow us to set up other effective feeds, which can be targeted towards finding newly written or unseen content.

* Ability to close/minimize the post field for comments.

If you load a lot of topics up which you decide to not reply to at that moment in time, it would be useful if you could return it to its normal state - i.e minimise it.

I realise that you could simply refresh/reload the page, however, if you tend to spend a lot of time reading and actually sitting on the page. Having a way to reduce the size would be beneficial.

* Ability to minimise the 'submit' a new topic if loaded but unwanted.

I know you can reduce it by clicking "cancel" but I do feel this might not be as obvious as a minimise option in the right corner, this is something more people would look for and would be a simple addition.

Just to stress, I am not suggesting these changes to dictate or attempt to get my money's worth - I feel the price right now is a very fair one. In fact, I believe it to be value for the purchaser, yet I do like to make suggestions and hopefully come up with detailed features which could add value to others who may use it. Again, I don't want to overload OnlyME, but I have spent the majority of this past weekend finding bugs (which was very quickly fixed) and thinking about how richer the application could be.

Thank you to OnlyME for taking the time to support, release and create this wonderful application.

Be sure to give this a like if you value what I had said or like the suggestions, this would show the dev that others would find them useful. Buy it today folks! You won't regret it.

Brilliant application turns the forums into a social feed, you can keep the forums or choose to let them act as an archive. With the automated title update it eliminates the need for topic titles and makes the post more like a status update. You can use this as the default module or else in the background. This is hands down the best application I have seen on the marketplace and has the ability to be the heart and soul of any community. The developer offers great support and he implemented all of my suggestions within 2 days. 

Thank you for the ongoing support.

Overall a great tool. I would love the option to filter "all" and only "unread topics."

Topics feature in clubs is very cool.

My only complaint is that photos and other content don't automatically re-size to fit the feed on mobile devices (iPhone). Currently works best with "Rich Content" turned off in the settings.

@onlyME messaged me and found the plugin conflict same day. Fixed the issue on my site and is going to put fix into next update. Awesome support!

I have bought this app and I absolutely love it! Since my members love status updates so much I believe this will compel them to participate more in topic discussions due to familiar interface and accessibility of it all. 🙂

I needed a customization which @onlyME made the next day, support is perfect! 😉

A really awesome addon for a very good price, things like this should definitely be a core feature.

Something like this would be a very good addition for clubs that don't have/need a forum too, like described in this topic...

I have created the feeds (no issue).  But they don't show from the widgets menu at all.

I am using Invision Board 4.4.4, and have reinstalled this application twice.  Still same error.
