  1. It should link to the solved post and show the photo from the member who solved it.

  2. WAIT! Before you try it, is that Wordpress website self hosted? Because if it is, you can't. I'm sorry, couldn't help myself. Yes, I know, that was mean. But also preventing us from getting features because we want to have control over the experience our site's visitors have. OK, that's it. I'll stop now 😄

    2 UI little issues

    So, just to make sure I understand what you understand, you think a user who sees Page 1 and Page 115 doesn't intrinsically understand there will be a Page 2, Page 3, and Page 4 in between them? More importantly, how does adding a Page 2, Page 3, and Page 4 help a user understand the magnitude of a long topic that is 115 pages versus 15 pages versus literally any page length of 5 or more? In any case, other thoughts: 1. Everyone is a critic of the default theme. 2. The default theme is grossly inefficient in certain areas. On desktop, nobody cares. On mobile, we have to care. 3. I think the better question to be asking is: based on heat analysis map or navigation pathways, do users actually click on Pages 2, 3, and 4 in a 115 page topic? My gut instinct says no. I think the smartest approach would be to intelligently tie those pagination numbers to topic pages that are especially important, as per the Topic Summary. 4. There's this whole area of research and investigation that should be done on ultra long topics. How do we get users to be able to efficiently absorb the entirety of the topic? How do we create intelligent splits and divergences within the topic?

    We need webp NOW

    1. Webp is not a niche image format anymore. Full stop. While I could understand that argument in 2015, webp is now almost universally supported by all browsers: https://caniuse.com/?search=webp 2. The grand irony - or perverse absurdity - is that my own website delivers images as webp via my Cloudflare. I literally have users who have downloaded my site's images, but can't upload them back to my site! That comes across as distinctly discrepant.

  5. This is a bit of a slap in the face to self hosted clients. Nothing to celebrate here. 👎

  6. Hey team! @Jordan Invision here. Slipping into my other account on Sunday funday to see what your thoughts are on this idea I've been thinking about. For many years, I've been interested in removing ads from my forum, but I think the standard subscription model for my community wouldn't go over well. I don't have any concrete proof, just a hunch. Now, if my members could actually earn money via Stripe for posting engaging content within our rules, that would be epic. --- Recently, I've been writing articles on Medium. Their business model (to me) is brilliant. Everyone wins: Medium, the publisher and the readers. They explain in detail what it is (if interested check this out). In a nutshell it's this: A subscription model at $5 per month for unlimited reading Guests can view a few content items per month without an account/subscription Publishers can earn revenue on the content items they post Publishers earn revenue by subscribers reading their post The amount the publisher earns is based off of how many articles that reader read on Medium that month For example, someone pays the $5 and only reads 2 articles on Medium in total that month, you get a larger chunk of their $5 Or, someone could read 50 articles on Medium that month (including one of yours) and you receive a smaller chunk of their $5 --- I think the concept might sound a little confusing at first glance, but it's relatively simple. Essentially, the publisher is rewarded with money for posting engaging content. The community benefits by having people post content they want to engage with. The community is also incentivized to post engaging content as well because they could earn some of their subscription back and possibly make a profit. And the community owner of course takes a cut. Because the community is generating revenue, ads are no longer needed. This would need to track what content items users visited, then allocate an amount to that user based on their usage over a 30-day period. To me, this could be a game-changing application baked into Invision Community. I am writing this to see if anyone finds this kind of business model appealing, or think it's a waste of time, or...? Perhaps there are some huge drawbacks/downsides to this for a community. I'd love to hear your thoughts!

    2 UI little issues

    In a topics list item contains 2 links useful, one is the title (orange) , another one is the last post (orange). 1. Please add a little background (or whatever you think is better as human design) to these elements, the purpose is have these elements as visible buttons to touch or click it in this Mobile age. (sometimes new users just touching the item wherever because the app habit use) Green arrows, these elements cause confusion to new users, when they touch the item card sometimes these links just take these users to a wrong place that is not what they want, sometimes old user happen too this accident. 2. Disable these unused redirect links that cause accidentally confusion. **** I think these 2 issues mentioned is a UI design problem of entire IPS.

  9. Thanks for your kind offer to consider suggestions for the upcoming update. Unfortunately I don't have sufficient understanding of the apps capability now to know how it might be improved upon. Once I put the forthcoming update through its paces I "might" offer up a suggestion or two for a subsequent release.

  12. I know this model very well. I think it makes most sense for big players, where there are millions of users and a lot of money to go around. For smaller sites, it feels a little over the top. You have this complicated setup and then when you split the money among all the participating members, you maybe pay out $1,50 to a single one. 😉 No one really benefits from that. And it will also need a lot of oversight. If there is money to be made, there will be people who try to cheat or use click-bait in an extreme way and so on. But sure, the model is fine. Or to put it in more general terms: Letting members earn money with a cut for the site is always good. At the moment, it’s reserved to downloads and clubs. Options for content types such as Pages articles or forum topics are certainly interesting. Tricky, but interesting.

    Keyword being almost. 10% of unsupported users of those being tracked is quite a lot of users. I would still argue that unless the format is officially supported as an industry standard and fully supported in commercial platforms, both for producing graphics and for displaying graphics, it is a risk to add it to your commercial software. Besides, it even says so on the page that webp is already being challenged by an even better standard in AVIF that is developed by AOM. Do you really think that Google will come out on top with a BSD licensed image format against an open format backed by the giants in the AOM? At the end of the day it is IPS decision, but I would rather see support for vector graphic than webp in the near future. A plugin for those that need webp should suffice over it being a native feature as it would mitigate official support taking time from other, more important issues. That's just me though 🙂

  14. Well, there is no setting or anything like simple that. But any Pages field does have the “topic format” setting to control what happens to the field content when the entry is posted to a forum. I guess with some custom HTML in there for the Content Field, it could work. Maybe someone would help you with that in the Peer-to-Peer forum, as this Pages functionality is unrelated to the SuperReviews product and its features.

    Friends

    Hi Very nice app ! I wonder why this is not a native feature on Invision Community, as it is a key feature of any community : link with other members as any social network Two requests : 1) when receiving a friend request, it is hard to see where it has to be validated (not very visible in left sidebar of user profile), it whould be a popup asking "do you want to accept this request Yes / No as it is now, many of our membres told us they dont know how to accept requests 2) The ability to restrain access to MP / profile view to friends is a good idea, but not relevant for all communities (member settings) admin should have the ability to disable those privacy settings for all users Thank you !

    Fair point. Although I cannot test it since I no longer use Windows, I imagine Microsoft Edge could open a WebP without a reg edit. But I digress. Your point is valid.

    Anything that requires doing registry edits means it's not something that's accessible to the common user is my point. Until it just works out of the box, without needing you to manually enable anything, it's still a problem, and why you should work to avoid having users download files in WebP format to begin with. Me personally, I use Directory Opus as a drop-in replacement for Windows Explorer, which has its own photo viewer that is vastly superior to Windows', so the issue doesn't apply to me personally, I'm just thinking in regards to the average end user. This is not at all an argument against supporting WebP as an uploadable image format, just an observation.

    FWIW if your users download images as WebP, they probably can't open/view them on their desktop either. Windows, at the very least, does not recognize WebP as an image format. You should avoid having your users download images in WebP format. Serving them in-browser is fine, but the original downloads should always be PNG, JPEG, GIF or so on until this changes.

  20. Thank you, I will look into a VPS. 😀 No one is going to wait 5 minutes to upload pictures. The good thing is the website is only 3 days old.

  21. Hello @Odiss Presuming you can confirm you are not experiencing any connection issues with your internet service provider (ISP), I would indeed assume this sounds like a hosting issue. Hawk Host is primarily a shared hosting provider, and many shared hosting providers oversell their resources. They (shared hosts in general) can usually do this successfully because the resources they promise will likely never be used to their maximum potential by most people. Using a "resell account" still means you are on the same principle. You only happen to have a few extra features that a standard shared account would not have, and it does not mean you have dedicated resources that a VPS (virtual private server) would provide.

    Hi! I actually think it's important to show the pagination so someone seeing the topic for the first time can grasp the magnitude of what they're about to walk into. 😇 Love your mockups 👏 I like that it simplifies things.

    I agree. But the mobile view needs additional changes. 1. There is no need to display pagination, and buttons "2", "3" and "4" make no sense at all. Seriously, who will click these buttons and why? 🤦🏻‍♂️ 2. The words "replies", "view" and "updated" take up a lot of space and don't fit on one line in many localizations. They should be replaced with icons so as not to interfere with viewing and to save space. Before: After:

  28. This means that the actual clock on your server appears to have drifted (in other words, it's 5:01 pm UTC right now, but your server's clock may be set to 5:45 pm or 4:30 pm, etc.). Make sure you are running something like NTP on your server. This message is not regarding your timezone.

    It does indeed. We had some fun with this plugin on our community, creating a ubuesque collective user, but it's no longer working now on 4.5.4.2 Invision, please bring to your platform the key features of this plugin. Make it so only selected groups can post anonymously. Make it so posts can appear as posted by a selected user. Pleeeease. Estimate time or arrival?

  30. Review data used to be valid for Article object types in structured data, but Google has since changed their mind and no longer allows you to include review data for articles. We are looking into this.
