  1. On behalf of the Invision Community staff and company, I'd like to wish our clients and community warm blessings and gratitude for the New Year. We're proud to be the community platform of choice for you and your organization over the past year (or decade!), empowering you and your users with the space to debate, discuss, investigate, solve, innovate and celebrate a shared sense of purpose. The ability to positively touch and connect with the lives of others regardless of location is one of the most transformative benefits of the modern web -- and there's never been a greater demand or

  2. Almost every time I try to click these arrows, instead of switching to the next/previous image, a new tab opens with the current image. This is really annoying, especially on mobile.

  4. Hi @Joel R yes, 1) is for me a pain point too. Our community is 18 years old and we have so so so much stuff. New users are overwhelmed by the many threads and other content. We're using "New Member Follow-up“ for short mails in the first days of membership. A better lead during sign-up is needed too. If I remember correctly I saw such lead during my registration at Reddit or Pinterest. But with a builtin better newsletter tool IPS would have a point. I am always jealous when I receive automated mails from other communities in my subject area. They have

  5. Here is an example that I’m talking about. Right now, I’m posting this reply from my phone. this paragraph did not auto capitalize. I had to swipe up on my iPhone about 8x to reach the bottom of the page to click the reply button. even though I read the entire thread except your last post, Sonya I was taken to the very top of the page, which caused uncesessary scrolling. as I’m typing, I have to scroll down more to click the post reply button. some easy improvements: take you to last reply. It is hit or miss. Add a feature similar to how flarum has it, where y

  6. We have a forum with 2-3,000 people online during the afternoons. We are 55% mobile, 43% desktop, 2% tablet. Invision is mostly desktop here IMO because we are all developers and do content creation from a desk/laptop. Content ingestion on the other hand is mostly mobile. Which is where the pageviews and monetization are from ads. I'm against mobile apps that do not monetize as good or better than a responsive design that caters to mobile and desktop. We HEAVILY leverage Google DFP w/ prebid and a large stack of media companies. Mobile app usage may be good for view-ability but if i

    Linked Accounts allows your members to link one or more accounts then quickly switch between them. You have a full range of options about which usergroups can use the Linked Accounts system and which usergroups cannot be linked to. The POST AS feature allows the user with linked accounts to create/reply to a topic using a Linked Account. Each action is logged so you can keep a track of what linked account users do. The Linked Accounts system could be useful for fan fiction forums, roleplaying forums, or just those of you with multiple accounts (e.g, John Doe, Administrator, Forum News).

  10. Hi everyone I wanted to open a wide-ranging discussion on pain points of forums and online communities (and yes, I know there are a lot) and solicit a broader range of thinking. There's no "right" or "wrong" here, only discussion on what's a challenge and how it can be improved. There are some areas where I think forums and online communities fall short. These aren't modern challenges, they've been around forever but social media has raised the bar for all of us. 1. Interest Discoverability All of our forums contain multiple sections, forums, and interests that can be qu

  11. After upgrading my local test / dev installation (I hadn't touched it in over a year), I ran into some errors that were solved only by updating the dev files. During the upgrade process, there is a screen that asks to disable IN_DEV mode. It may be worthwhile to add a note in the footer to remind users to upgrade the dev files as well once the upgrade is complete! (Or any other notification elsewhere, for that matter)

  12. A lot of communities I visit do not have any welcome (landing) page, some words, what is the community about or what is the benefit to join it. There were literally some that I could not sort out what they about A modern landing page describing in short terms what it the community about - is important. It should not be a start page, at least something like "About Us". And I do not talk about this but something like this. We do not want the user to register but talk. So adding something like "Ask your question and get answers from the communities experts now!" is better than offering "

  13. I did not touch the notification settings of IPS because email level and on the site I do not find them disturbing. Notifications are not disturbing I think when it comes to quality content that interests us. This is rather good news. On fiverr, following the words typed in their search bar, we are sent an email with links likely to interest us, it's not bad because it is an email following a search on our part ... it would be nice to be able to send a nice presentation of article suggestions by email A community functions around users, so to function at best, it is necessa

  14. It should only throw a E_DEPRECATED error now, which can be suppressed in php.ini. Based on the path in your error stack I'm going to assume you have access to that. error_reporting = E_COMPILE_ERROR|E_RECOVERABLE_ERROR|E_ERROR|E_CORE_ERROR PHP will only die on errors after you change error_reporting to this. The other option is to go back to PHP 7.3.

    This is by far the most important plugin on the marketplace for me, and its existence is the reason why I purchased an Invision Community license. I was searching for a new forum software for my community, and due to the specific nature of that community we really -- really -- needed to utilize a Linked Accounts / Post As plugin. For me, it was basically make or break. Finding this, along with the support that the creator has provided with keeping it working after upgrades and fixing bugs drove it home. Honestly? If the author asked for it, I would even pay a renewal every 6 months to

  19. Again, vanilla is not the forum solution I am talking about. I'm talking about IPS out of the box, with no modifications/themes etc. You have to understand that Discourse/Flarum are mobile first approaches, but Flarum is not even a released software and IPS has been around for how long? At least 15 years, right? All I'm trying to tell you is, IPS needs to put more emphasis at making Mobile more of a game player when most of the entire WEB is mobile instead of focusing specifically for desktop use and supporting mobile, but not making an emphasis. The end goal is to provide the featu

  20. I should think that the existing experience will influence the desktop/mobile split. For example I prefer to use Discourse on mobile because the desktop experience is so bland. So perhaps, immaterial of the current metrics, if the IPS mobile experience improves, so will mobile usage.

    Push for Mobile first

    Absolutely. This site, notably visited by individuals developing communities, will be disproportionately skewed toward the desktop side. The subject matter and audience will be large factors into that split. Our community is at 85-90% mobile.

    Show a legend of your groups in the Who's Online and Recently Browsing widgets, sorted in the order you specify and linked to the search system. Handy so that people know what those group prefixes and suffixes mean. FYI: Be sure you are running the latest version on the newer versions (4.3.x) of Invision Community. Also, if you end up with errors in the logs that seem to implicate GNI make sure you have EXIF installed - that's the root cause of the problem and the plugin is just getting caught in the crossfire. Version 5 is for IPS 4.4.5 and above. Untested on earlier versions. Versi

    Excellent addition to Videobox. Developer is one of the best IPS developers. He responds to requests quickly and is always a joy to have discussions with. I'd rate both the developer and the app 10 stars if I could.
