Shift: A color-picker theme by ipsfocus
Shift features a simple colour scheme changer, allowing your members to choose their own colour combination from a preset array. Perfect for any community, it's very easy to set custom default colours or even add/replace the existing preset colours with your own!
Easily enable, disable or modify theme features such as background images, logos, social media links, guest messages and colors. This makes modifications and upgrades very simple since little code changes are required.
Color Scheme Editor
Your members can choose two colors to create their own color scheme from a predefined selection. This feature can be disabled easily if required.
Background picker (if enabled)
Your members can choose their own background image (or color) from a predefined selection and their choice is saved via cookies. This feature can be configured or disabled within the theme settings.
Display a message across the top of your site with important announcements. Once your members have seen the message, they can press the Dismiss button to remove it (until you configure a new one).
A customizable message can be shown to guests, prompting them to either register or login to your forum. Two designs, "billboard" and "alert" (shown) are available.
Social links can be enabled/disabled and customized to your own URL, allowing you to easily link to your social network pages (facebook, twitter, etc)
HTML logo with slogan
Easily add/edit your text logo and slogan from within the theme settings. If required, the text can be replaced by an image instead.
A mega footer with configurable column numbers and content can be enabled and customized all within the theme settings.

Wouldn't it be nice if the Invision Community editor could re-use whole replies, text snippets, and even reply templates?
As we get ready to welcome more customers into our staffed community support area, this feature idea has become a reality to help form personalized replies.
Invision Community has a saved actions feature that allows the community team to perform multiple actions on multiple topics. For example, you might want to add a title prefix, move the topic and add a reply. This works great for 'canned' responses and actions, but it is less useful if you want to edit the reply to personalize it.
Stock replies allow you to set up entire replies, partial replies or even reply templates.
Stock replies via the editor
Once you have these set up in the Admin Panel, they are visible on the editor.
Stock replies are configured in the Admin Panel
You can choose multiple stock replies to build up a message with handy re-usable reply snippets.
Each stock reply has full permission capabilities, meaning you can specify which member groups can use each stock reply. For example, you may wish to create partial replies for your team but encourage members to use a reply template to report bugs, etc.
Using stock actions as a template
We hope you like this feature, which is coming to our 4.6.7 October release.
I've just installed the 4.6.7 version, which brings the exciting new Stock Replies feature.
However, in the editors configuration screen in the ACP, I don't see the lightning ⚡ icon to be added. I tried to reset the editors to the default config, but the icon is still not available to be selected and added to the editors. See below.
