  1. I don't miss the confused reaction but I do miss the sad reaction. We are living in a tumultuous time right now with a global pandemic, and more. You don't always have the words to express that you are feeling for that person's difficult time and seeing a bunch of empty "I'm so sorry"'s in a thread I think is just as damning as no one replying at all to someone's rough time. The sad reaction gave people a means to offer support, show that they read the post without replying with an empty platitude that means even less than a supportive reaction.

  3. Yes, the purchases are deleted. Transactions are not, however, which would be the appropriate way to track financial history. Income reporting in the AdminCP, for instance, uses Transaction data, not purchase data.

  4. It sounds like your server no longer meets the minimum requirements for Invision Community. The DomDocument extension is enabled by default (and is perhaps missing from your PHP 7.4 build) and is required to run a lot of PHP based software. Please run our requirement checker to see if anything else is missing If that doesn't show anything missing, I would next suggest re-uploading a copy of Invision Community, overwriting your existing files.

  7. Yes everything is correct. I am using the standard filesystem. {{if $verification->inProgress()}} <div> <img class="ipsImage" src='{file="$verification->photo"}' alt='{$verification->__get( $verification::$databaseColumnMap['title'] )}' itemprop="image"> </div> {{elseif $verification->isVerified()}} The problem is hiding here.

  8. Ah, okay. So you use the local file system to store files or another one? I need as much information as possible to reproduce the issue. Please send me as much information as you can in a private message. Then I will try to find out what's going wrong here.

  9. Hi, can you please verify that the images can be found on the file system? Maybe it's a permission or upload issue.

  10. @Jordan InvisionI imagine you were feeling a bit sad at the thought of leaving us one day... Well the feeling is mutual. Instead of expressing that "sadness" you didn't write words, you resorted to a single emoji as there wasn't an appropriate reaction to capture what you were feeling. Why did you not write something out like you advocated for above? Don't you deserve that little extra attention? How many different interpretations of a single emoji are there likely to be from everyone that skims through this thread? Did I read your emoji accurately? Maybe, maybe not. Alas, forum communication can become quite nuanced and what might seem obvious to the writer might not be so to the intended reader or the rest of the community.

    Widget for Google photos

    First, Gallery need more improvements to improve UX... Second, Gallery will kill me by the storage... All my photos on Google photos... I THINK IS GOOD don't duplicate more files and upload again in another server more... After a widget connect with a shared album, is nice life just a have to add or remove images or videos to that album....

    Email Drip Campaigns

    Version 1.4.0

    41 downloads

    Introducing email drip campaigns! Drip campaigns are a defined series of emails that are sent automatically to members. For instance, you may want to welcome new users who register on your community, and then send a follow up email a month later to make sure they're getting the most from your site. Or you may wish to send a user a series of marketing related emails when they purchase a specific product on your site. The use-cases are endless, and email drip campaigns are a powerful and versatile tool in any marketer's toolbox. Until now you would have had to do this manually, maintaining lists of email addresses and remembering dates that you've contacted them. Not anymore! Now you can put your users on "set it and forget it" email campaigns with just a few clicks. How does it work? In the AdminCP under the "Members" tab, a new area is available named "Drip Campaigns". You create one or more campaigns in this area, and then one or more steps for each campaign. It's perfectly fine to create just one step if you wish, such as an introductory email to new users. Or, alternatively, you can create multiple steps - as many as you want. When you create a campaign you define whether the campaign be automatically or manually assigned? Currently you can automatically assign campaigns by: New user registration User is moved to a new (primary) group User purchases a product or subscription from your site User makes their first post User creates their first blog User creates their first album User creates their first club After creating the campaign you will then create one or more steps in the campaign. When creating steps you can configure: The title and body of the step. You can use a WYSIWYG editor, or a code editor for finer control. Whether the notification to the user should be sent via email or personal conversation. If using email, whether to use the email wrapper or not If using personal conversation, the conversation starter account You can use bulk-mail style tags for a more personalized touch How long since the last step (or since the campaign was assigned to the user for the first step) before the contact should be sent, including immediately. And then that's it! If the campaign is set to be assigned automatically, you don't have to do anything further. If the campaign is not set automatically, or you wish to manually assign it, you can do this from one of two manners: When viewing a member account in the AdminCP, you can see which campaigns the member has been assigned to, the current progress, the date the next step will process, and the ability to cancel, resume or restart any campaigns. You can also assign new campaigns when viewing an individual member. Alternatively, you can mass-assign members to any specific campaign. A member search form will be presented allowing you to define which members to assign, and all members that match your filter selections (the same selections available when sending a bulk mail) will be assigned. I'll be looking out for feedback as to new ideas and auto-assignment requests as well, so leave me your feedback.

  14. I hear you guys. I can see what you mean about wanting to use a "sad" reaction as a means to show someone you saw their comment, but may not necessarily have the words at the moment to write a reply. I think that's interesting. I'd like to challenge you to explore that: why not write something out every time you feel compelled to use a sad reaction? I imagine it'd make the person you're quoting feel seen and heard far more than a sad reaction. I'm not completely opposed to adding the sad reaction back, but I am also having trouble advocating for this change. Communities are designed for members to contribute and convey emotion. Sadness is an emotion (imo) that deserves some extra attention. 😕

    Mail Bouncer is a fully automated app to handle email bounces and spam complaints via 3rd Party Email services SparkPost, SendGrid, Mandrill or Amazon SES/SNS. Hard Bounce If a hard bounce is detected, all email to that user will be instantly disabled, they will be placed into 'validating' status which means that IPS4 will prevent them accessing the community until they have updated their email address. Soft Bounce Soft bounces are counted over a number of days, if they exceed 1 bounce a warning message will be shown, if they exceed 4 bounces it will be converted to a 'hard bounce' Spam reports via Mandrill, SparkPost, SendGrid or Amazon SES/SNS are when a user clicks on 'Spam' in AOL/Gmail/YahooMail etc, this user is blocked from having emails sent to them. The user is presented with a message on every page that tells them that they should update their email preferences instead of marking an email as spam. They are offered a chance to opt-in to emails again, once they opt-in the Mandrill side block is also removed. Removing 'Spam' users from the services reject list may cost a small amount of reputation. To prevent a user exploiting this they are only allowed to opt-in once. Reject Mail Bouncer app will learn your existing reject list as emails are sent to them (this won't hurt your reputation), This allows the app to start telling users to update their email address right away. This app is a zero-configuration app providing your Mandrill/SparkPost/SendGrid API Key setting is present (zero configuration does not include Amazon SES/SNS). Amazon SES/SNS Setting up Amazon SES/SNS is a more involved process, you will be responsible for configuring SNS and ensuring that it is functional and sending data to the Mail Bouncer SNS endpoint (details displayed after app installation). Requirements You must use Mandrill, SparkPost, SendGrid or Amazon SES Email Services cURL Ability for your server to communicate with 3rd party APIs (external connections) Support If you require any support for this product please create a Technical Support ticket in the Client Area. You will need to register an account if you do not already have one. You must supply your IPS Community email address.

  17. @The Old ManYour original posting could have benefited from further elaboration. After many comments its becoming quite clear that the issue you brought up is a lot more complicated and nuanced than it appears at first glance. I gave your pizza comment a "like". Speaking of pizza, its great 24 hours a day hot or cold. Everyone: A community can add value to a conversation via commenting or reactions and sometimes both. "If" reactions are to be added to the mix then they should offer a wide variety of ways to express support or lack thereof for a particular comment or exhibit various emotions. As humans express a multitude of good and bad emotions there should be means of expressing them in ways that convey an emotion without the weight behind it that might stir an overly averse reaction from receiving it. If a reaction choice is a tad on the negative side it should convey a value of 1 out of 10 scale. Using such a reaction should be meant to make a subtle point not as a means of moderation. That's a job that should be reserved for the forum administrators if someone shows a propensity of straying outside of community norms. In those cases where a reader is feeling less than positive about a topic or situation being described there should be a way of expressing that via a reaction. Doing so shouldn't mean they feel less than positive about the commenter overall. We can agree to disagree on occasion and still get along if we are to be a successful community, whether here or your place. If you limit the reactions too much you limit their overall usefulness. If you click on the reaction button there should be an option for every conceivable "useful" use case. Their usage should be of value to the recipient as well as the rest of the community. Limiting reactions is akin to asking a wordsmith to limit themselves to only using 1000 random words to convey every conceivable thought or emotion. It's simply too limiting. If a reaction appears to be under utilized it might not mean its a poor choice for inclusion in the grand scheme of things, it simply might mean there were few instances where that reaction was appropriate. The choice of reactions should be readily identifiable by the whole community and shouldn't be tied too closely with any particular administrator as they come and go. If someone reads an old comment and sees a bunch of reactions from a prior community admin they might not understand the significance of a "cat" reaction for instance, or some other favored reaction from the past. That's not to say reactions can't be fun and whimsical, I'm simply saying they "might" have a short life span of usefulness or understood by the whole community, especially if it has an international membership. Reactions should not be implemented exclusively from the top or by a group of power users. That's why I've refrained from making specific suggestions on changes, additions or deletions of the reactions here. The entire community should be included in the conversation as "they" are going to be the ones to use them or not if they don't meet their collective needs. Maps have keys to convey the various icons used. There might be value in providing a page (or pages if you have different reactions throughout your site) that shows each reaction along with their appropriate usage. This should help set community-wide expectations on their usage.

  26. Giphy's mostly do - but they don't necessarily describe the image in the way it's being used, which could lead to some hilarious unintended consequences - unless the poster modifies them to reflect what they would otherwise have said. Thanks for the links. Looking forward to seeing how they develop.

  27. Is this the place to request a late addition to 4.6? Only half joking, but thinking granular control of what folks can post in topics and comments might come in handy. I for one am not a fan all of the street furniture that's appeared in this 'community' over the past couple of months, but appreciate of course, that for every one like me, there's probably several who think the complete opposite. With this in mind, catering for both sides of the divide makes sense to me, allowing administrators to control what can be posted beyond the current globally allowed file types. I do believe @Nathan Explosion has a plugin that achieves some of this (which I hope to purchase in the near future), but it doesn't as far as I know have a 60+ OAP switch allowing oldies like me to be able to browse forums just like we used to 20/30 years ago. On a more serious note, such functionality, both in the hands of the administrator and end users would allow us to control what we see at the individual forum level, beyond being able to hide signatures. Of course hiding or preventing the use of animations and the like (I own a VFX business, so I'm not totally averse) would of course mean that many comments would, for many of us, go unread. Which at the moment some might say isn't a bad thing, plus of course, folks suspecting they aren't being 'read' by the topic's entire audience might well instead resort to that old favourite - letters and words. In saying that, perhaps the creators of Giphy and the like have missed a trick. Shouldn't they have designed (or have they already?) their witty delivery mechanism to include a native alt attribute so that post/comment authors could include real words for those blocking the graphical part of the content. Or, in lieu of this, perhaps Invision could allow our humorously minded friends the option of adding an alt attribute to images of all types (without needing to add a CKEditor image plugin), so that we can see what they meant, even if we decide to block what they intended. To the principle reason for commenting. I think Invision Community should be both proud and thankful that so many of its clients are still around after so many years. For example, selecting solely from this topic, @The Old Man and @Chris Anderson have both (if I've interpreted their joined date correctly) been here for 17+ years and @Kjell Iver Johansen, for 9+ years, whilst evidently, also caring very much about the platform. As for me, I'm relatively new here, but older than most it seems, but I share with those mentioned a deep desire to go about my business in the most efficient way possible, if only because at my time of life (61) time isn't an endless resource and I'd rather spend it as frugally as possible. Finally from me tonight, I do hope the community can pull together here. I've made representations to @Matt about this just recently. I am very pleased to see that an investment has been made in hiring a (semi?) dedicated resource in @Jordan Invision, but I would ask that more care is taken to involve the community as a whole. Otherwise as others have outlined, some of us might find it difficult to contribute. Now although me holding my tongue might suit some of you, I do feel the community will suffer disproportionately if some of the older, more experienced regulars here, stop contributing in the ways that they have done. Looking forward to 4.6 and beyond. Thanks for a great platform.

  28. You had me at pizza but the other expression is almost as good. In fact, thinking about it, I may start a new dialogue (I promise not to) about why Jordan didn't add a pizza reaction instead of a cat. I mean it cures everything, right? Negativity, sadness, leprosy, people who still say Message Board, senior men's problems, people who still call it IPB and so the list goes on. 🍕

  30. Appreciate you taking the time to write this @The Old Man! My logic for removing the "sad" and "confused" reactions was two-fold. For one, they were extremely underutilized according to the reports. More importantly (imo), if someone feels confused or sad, we want to encourage you guys to write out a response. Those are more fragile emotions, so I felt, and still feel, that if someone is sad or confused about something, that it's important they take the time to respond why they feel that way. If they're confused, it gives them an opportunity to seek clarification from someone in a reply. And if they are sad, it allows them the freedom to explain why. Most platforms stopped offering a "dislike" option because it causes unnecessary conflict. I can attest to this personally on my own community. A few members were using it non-stop to essentially start fights - especially if their posting was restricted (they can still use reactions as a form of communication). We removed the option to "dislike" replies and it created a friendlier environment. YouTube is one of the only places left where you can dislike, and this past week they've started quietly testing out what their platform would be like if they removed it. Ultimately, I am aiming for our community to feel more high vibe. 😅 Would love to hear what the rest of the community has to say about this! If the majority want the ability to express negative emotion with reactions, if that will really elevate this community and your day, I'm open to hearing that and making a change. It just has to be for the overall betterment of our community 🙂 🙏

  34. Started another deep dive into "Social Promotion" since I think this is one of the more interesting additions to 4.2. Things I like: Scheduler Bitly URL shortener (didn't see this in the preview, so this must be new) Our Picks page. Major things to improve: Manage Promoted Items -- I'd like to be able to 1. rearrange the order of picks and 2. publish immediately. This can be important if I choose a bunch of picks while browsing my community, but then need to arrange them in the proper order. Promote Content -- Please verify that all content items are promotable. For example, gallery images do not have promote option, but the gallery comment does. Use Image on IP.Download, IP.Gallery -- If you're promoting an item like an IP.Download file or IP.Gallery image, it would make sense to auto-use the respective screenshot or image. Minor things to improve: Upload images -- Should change dropzone color "Are you sure you want to delete this promoted item?" -- Change to "Are you sure you want to delete this promoted item from Our Picks?" Add button on 'Our Picks' to 'Manage Promoted Items' -- I shouldn't have to go through the User Menu. When uploading more than 1 image, choose which one is cover-- Like IP.Downloads screenshots Widget still shows right-arrow when no picks to load Things that confuse me "Don't share to the community on this occasion" -- I think this means don't push to Our Picks? Based upon my testing, I think that's what it does. Not sure why it closes the text editor. Manage Promoted Items > "Successful share to internal" -- I don't understand the difference between the two icons "Successful share to Internal" and "Also shared on internal." One is gray; one is green. Both virtually say the same thing. While IPS carefully ponders and implements all of my excellent feedback, here are some juicy screenshots of Social Promotion in action: The all-new Our Picks page. Beautifully responsive. Notice how you can upload multiple photos to a promotion. Manage Promoted Items. A new menu option for users with permission. Notice the time history (eg. Sent 4 minutes ago). Widget is ... okay.

  35. Hey all, I am displaying multiple Db/Tables on the same page which causes them to no work properly. I am assuming this is because the javascript functions are trying to be called on each table etc. How do I differentiate the tables so that the javascript only works on one table at a time and does not call the other one? Do I need to create separate table controllers for each of them? Thanks!

  37. My philosophy mirrors that of the consulting guru from the 80's, Tom Peters: stick to your knitting. In other words, focus on what you do well. IPB does forums well but I feel that there are ecommerce solutions out there that are more robust simply because those companies focus on ... ecommerce. Similarly, same with chat and with gallery. I feel the same with blogs but the security issues surrounding Wordpress made me move our blogs to IPB. So you're wondering what this first paragraph has to do with the Spring Fashions in Milan? I tend to expound. What I am trying to explain is my philosophy for how we run our community. If you follow that philosophy, I also feel membership software is a security specialty and it is focused on working with other third party software in what the industry calls Single Sign On, or SSO. In the past, there were problems with getting IPB to bridge with other third party software. Single Sign On allows a person to login on one platform and all of the database information is passed to all the other third party software, including updates. So when a member updates their country, their address, their email, whatever it is that you choose, those fields are passed to the third party software. So we use aMember as our membership platform and login gateway. It in turn allows our members to login in to the following platforms and instantly update all of the databases and field values of our members as they change their settings. We use IPB for calendars, forums, blogs, and social groups, and some other customized applications. We use Prestashop as our ecommerce platform. We use 4images as our gallery platform. We will be using a third party chat platform. Why? Because that platform is focused on Chat. IPB has delayed and delayed and delayed chat improvements. Yet when you look around at the world of online users, they are using some form of chat be it messaging or snapchat or kik or who knows, on every device. Clearly this is an extremely important feature and it needs to have continuous focus for improvement. Only software companies that focus primarily on that area will give it the attention it needs. Once again, aMember will be the connecting source via SSO. So our members' database is maintained in aMember and it connects to Prestashop. Yes, the latter has a database devoted to ecommerce and has fields that capture sales and shopping carts but the security and access to Prestashop is still funneled through aMember. Look them up and hopefully you'll get what they do.
