Invision Insight: 4.7.8 Beta 1 and first preview of Live Topics!

Recommended Posts

Welcome to this week's Invision Insight!

The changelog has had a significant hit this week with bug fixes by the amazing dev team, and a special thanks to @Ehren for all the amazing UI changes! The majority may go unnoticed by the odd individual, but it has definitely made things look so much nicer.

We have had a very productive week and ran a live preview of Live Topics right here on Invision Community! 🥳 More on that below.


Live Topics

In a nutshell, Live Topics is a hosted live chat and question and answer event that is converted into a forum topic upon completion. Check out the blog post below for more info!

And if you were one of the lucky few to participate, the IPS Team came together to give a live preview of this new feature; the very first time Live Topics has been shown and used by our community. Check it out and give us your feedback.

I'm finding it difficult to distinguish between the boldness of the text of an unread topic title and "unboldness" of the text of a read topic title. Could just be my eyesight though. There was more distinction prior.
