September Marketplace Recap and upcoming developer changes

Recommended Posts

Deprecation of the interface directory

In order to ensure Invision Community is compatible with modern cloud infrastructures we are deprecating the use of the interface directory in favour of a proper front loader system.

We're working on a new solution which will allow HTTP requests to the interface directory.
This means, any JS, HTML, GIF files uploaded there will work, even PHP will work, BUT you'll have no access to the IPS framework there.


Last months common submission issues:

All in all the quality increased, but there are still 2 common issues which are worth to be mentioned.

  • Versions (again) 😉 
    Please try to pay more attention to this. We're thinking about including an check for this to forbid any submissions where the new version is lower than the previous, but until this happens, please, please pay more attention to this.  It's one of the really unnecessary reasons for a approval delay..
  • Editors
    Please keep in mind that you can't just use any of the existing EditorLocations in your 3rd party applications and plugins.
    There's a lot going on in the background and there's a lot logic related to the specific area used in the EditorLocation Extension, so one can't just use e.g. the Admin EditorLocation for the editor field in his custom form.

Last but not least, please try to install your application or plugin on a local test instance and also run the upgrade from the stable last release before you submit it to the marketplace. You'll be surprised how often we get submissions which result in an error while the installation.
