Seems like IPS is the only way to go on community software. You're miles ahead of the competition. But, why does the demo lag behind the look, feel, and functionality of this website (which also runs IPS)?
First, I know IPS can be made to do anything. But out of the box, the stylish menu and header this website has should be standard in IPS instead of the clunky tabbed version in the demo? It's an expectations thing: see attached photo. There's no way to replicate the look of this site's header/menu in the demo with the point-click style/them editor without coding. And a lot of understanding of your css.
I know IPS can be made to look like anything, but new people are unlikely to be able to make changes of this nature. And why include a dated look when you have a much better one?
There are other examples too. The "News" part of this site resembles the Blog in the demo, but it's different. The News here (like the header) is just better looking for announcements than the demo's blog. I'm pretty sure News here is a Pages app that anyone very experienced could learn to do. But why not include that with the stock software? Like the header, you already have it coded!
Why not include examples of what Pages can do, already coded and loaded? I know you have examples--they are here on your site in Documentation, Bug Tracker, News, etc. But include them inside the software already loaded. In addition, with just 20 employee hours could produce several sample Page apps that people could modify and be included with the software. Even if not a single person ever uses your Pages examples verbatim, modifying is alwaaaays easier than creating from scratch. Especially when you are new to a system. Especially when the product isn't exactly intuitive. The included examples could vary in complexity from very simple to the more advanced...
Even the footer, so much better on this website than the demo!
You've worked hard to create this stylish, well presented invisionpower.com website and a lot of it is discarded (or obscured) in the demo. Again, I know you can hire someone to change IPS. I know it can be changed. But you have a sexy new car on the show room floor (this website) and dated model for sale (demo).
