Quick request if you have 2 minutes...

Hi Joel,

Please do not post these names.

We looked at Drupal Commons, OpenSocial (early version), OpenAtrium, SharePoint and I think one or two others. There were a number of reasons, but the primary was the level of foundational development work which was needed to have any hope of attracting and retaining members through core functionality and features.

Hey, I loved your article on providing true value to Members. Good job on your thought-leadership and good writing, too. I wholeheartedly agree.

Some interesting and broad choices in there.  I was just curious to see how you discovered Invision Community as a choice within your search.  

Thanks for the compliment on my article.  I sometimes say smart things and impress myself, ha.

We're finally getting around to creating books and guides to help new customers get comfortable on the Invision Community platform.

Thanks Matt, Looking forward to them. 

Screencasts (tutorials) work great too if you have the time. 

Or If you create a place to put them I'd be happy to record my screen as I learn and then post what I've learned for others.

I've been using WP for years and my frustraction with Invision is the User (me) lol.  I know it's just another learning curve I have to go through, I'm guessing the frustration is an age thing 🙂

Looking forward to finishing my site.  I know the real work will come later (I listened to the last podcast interview you did and enjoyed and found it very informative - Thanks)

Soon, I'll give you an awesome sound bite ... soon, but probably not soon enough.  

FYI, I've been searching for years for software like this and I gave WPMU Dev a ton of money over the years as well other plugin and theme companies.  I almost signed up over the past year with Brilliant Directories (came very close) and Member Mouse, MemberPress and others from Theme Forest.  Just as I was about to go click (with the visa) something stopped me and you guys showed up on the next google search and so far I'm glad you did.  I like what I see 

Cheers!

Invision Community remains under active development, support and extensive interest in (year_name) currently 2019.

IPS4 is my starting point to build a lasting community of engagement and dedication. Where features end, communities on Invision begins.

For me Invision Community is the software I started using way back when the version number was 1.x. It's constantly improved, reliable and easily extendable. You can build what you need without programming knowledge using resources on the Marketplace, advice on on official forums and help from really supportive community. That paired with quick, proffessional and reliable support makes it a solution which is a pleasure to use for both the users and the staff.

(Suffice to say I've tested phpbb and various modifications, smf, vb... stuck with Invision, even when it went commercial I've bit the bullet and bought the license - never regretted it.)

Are you still looking for quotes?  I'm guessing you didn't get 20 quotes as I don't see the hotdog photo in this thread.

Always! 🙂

I'm in this for the long haul. I came to Invision when I realized, pretty quickly, that free options are wholly unsuitable for the longevity I need. When your "free" forum disappears after all you've put into it, you'll have absolutely no recourse. With a paid option there is accountability. Invision has stability and a track record you can count on.

 

@Matt,Hopefully that's one more you can use. I'd really like to see that promised pic!

It looked to be a tall order, creating a site in another language, allowing people to sign in with Facebook or Twitter, and customising the appearance and functionality. Invision Community came with an extendable stepladder. Job done!
