  1. Almost ten years ago we launched the Marketplace; a place to connect Invision Community owners with talented developers creating new functionality. Over the decade, the Marketplace has grown to hold thousands of applications, large and small. For many Invision Community owners, the Marketplace has become an essential resource. Our aim was always to have the Marketplace available inside your Admin Control Panel to make it even easier to purchase and install extra functionality. I'm pleased to say that as of Invision Community 4.5, this is now a reality. You can browse the Marketpla

    4.5: Two feature additions

    As the deadline slowly comes down, two last feature additions race towards the descending door and slide in underneath with seconds to spare. If you've never seen "Raiders of the Lost Ark", then you probably think this is a weird way to start a blog. As we wrap up development for Invision Community 4.5, we squeezed in two extra features that I want to talk about today. Per Topic Post Approval The first is a way to cool down a heated topic without locking it. Right now you can put an entire forum on post-approval. This means that moderators must review and approve all new post

  3. We've been on a little journey together since we announced the first Invision Community 4.5 feature way back in November 2019. The first feature we announced was a revamped Admin Control Panel interface which created more visual space and brightened it up. Actually, we made it so bright that the first feature request was to add a dark mode (which we did). In the space of three short months, we had spoken about Club improvements, invites and referrals, RSS feed improvements, blog categories, the simple stock photo picker, search insights, security enhancements, user interface updates,

  4. Since the feature was announced at last yearโ€™s World Wide Developer Conference (WWDC) we have received lots of requests to implement Sign in with Apple in Invision Community. Weโ€™re pleased to announce that as of 4.5 this is now available. You will need a paid Apple developer account to use it but once enabled users will be able to sign in using their Apple ID and all the convenience that brings. Touch ID and Face ID is supported natively where available and works across all your devices. Choose to share or hide your email address Isnโ€™t it just another login button?

    HOMERUN!

    All I really got to say is IPB knocked this one out of the park. HOMERUN! I better add also I'm also really impressed with low bug count in betas. The dev team is organized better than ever.. It's taken some years to get everything on the track it is but I feel it was well worth it and well worth the wait. Should I be giving @Lindy some credit here?? If I do will @Matt pull the Lindy factor line on me? ๐Ÿคฃ This is really such a well rounded product now all the way around. Great awesome job IPB!

    Support Needs

    Sometimes I feel compelled to speak out with regards to a service, it doesn't happen very often but today I do feel compelled to say something about the support given by Invision. It's First Class! I've noticed, over the years, that some users post quite disparaging words for the support given, but I've never experience this myself and I truly believe that you have to give praise where it's due, just as much as you have to voice concerns when things are not going right. I'd like to say thank you to all of the staff who have dealt with any issues I've raised, but in particular to

    #Hashtags

    We have talked about hashtags a lot internally over the years. The core issue is that we're just not sure how useful they are on a forum. They work on Twitter because it's the only way to create a 'channel' of similar discussions. There is no other way to separate out conversations. So adding the tag makes it clear you're talking about that topic. Obviously, with a forum you have categories, forums and topics. Adding a hashtag would be largely superfluous. We have a tagging system for content already, and I would say that 98% of Invision Communities do not use it, and of the 2%, a sma

    Awesome! Thanks for the positive feedback - that's exactly what we wanted to hear! I'd love to take credit, but it's definitely not me - it's really a cumulation of an amazing development team, new processes and the addition of @Olivia Clarkto the team last year. I'm extremely proud of everyone at IPS; we're very fortunate! Thanks again. 4.5 is the best yet. ๐Ÿ™‚

  21. I've said it many times. Apple will never make PWA a first person citizen on its platform; this means complete with full service workers and notifications. They do not want a mass App Store exodus. They want that 30% in-app payment slice. https://www.theverge.com/2020/6/18/21296180/apple-hey-email-app-basecamp-rejection-response-controversy-antitrust-regulation We can definitely do more with our PWA implementation, but we decided the sensible approach was to create native apps.

    FA4 was rather amazingly last updated in 2016 and almost 3 years since FA5 was released, but despite multiple requests from clients, IPS didn't/wouldn't support it. Somewhat frustrated, but fortunately not in a sexual way, we chuckled cheekily that FA6 would be out by the time FA5 was integrated, but more seriously it is IMHO still a missed opportunity as there were a lot of really good features like Pro, Duotone and Light icons and of course the super useful themed Icon Packs. So I personally think, respectfully and sadly, that IPS 'dropped the ball' by not utilising a team member to upd

  26. Please add the ability to add a poll to a pages record or by itself as a record. I run a news site, forums are not part of a local news site in general, but the ability to add a poll would be fantastic. Since the software is sold now by app basis, pages would be deserving of this ability imo. Thank You

    #Hashtags

    I want to throw out there that hashtags (pound signs for us old people) mean something different on different media platforms. So making an educated and good decision on this is, and should be difficult. For example you use a hashtag in discord and other chat programs to link to separate rooms. Whereas they are used to link other content on social media streams. Its not quite the same thing to assume that a hashtag is just one thing. When you have a limited space to type content I can see how a hashtag is super important but you don't have a limited space on a forum. TO ME, I think t

  32. Banning, blocking and moderating problematic users is all well and good, but if the user decides to open a new account and the site's admins can't detect it as a duplicate, all those tools are pretty useless. I saw that through the years there have been a few plugins developed by the community, but I think that this should be a built-in integral functionality of the suite. Also the plugins are currently not available for purchase so I'm salty ๐Ÿ˜„ What do you guys think? Should we have a built-in tool to help us find and intercept trolls and toxic users?

  33. I use both Xenforo and IPS and whilst technically they may appear to be on par in terms of coding, they are very, very different in so many ways. If I could afford another IPS licence I would drop Xenforo in a heartbeat. The admin side of Xenforo is horrid with great long pages of options that are so easy to miss - Xenforo is also forum only (with a couple of 1st party addons) unless you want to invest in a whole bunch of third party apps which may or may not be supported for long periods or even be updated when version upgrades take place. It can be a nightmare juggling all the different a

    4.5: Commerce Trials

    One of the most popular requests we get for Commerce is for a free trial period for subscriptions. We've heard from many clients that wish to allow their members a free, or reduced cost trial period before auto-renewing the full price. I'm pleased to say that we've now added this functionality into Invision Community 4.5. Let us take a look at how it works. Initial Terms In 4.5 you can now specify an initial term that is different to the normal renewal term for any subscription plan or product.
