    Speaking as a client not as staff: They sometimes say the simpler ideas are the best, and this is one of them. Works very well and does "exactly what it says on the tin"

    Joel's top 5 reasons to buy this plugin: One of the best Titles in the Marketplace. Honestly. That alone is deserving of a tip to Flitterkill. Awesome support and responsive conversation by Flitterkill. I made two minor aesthetic suggestions to Flitterkill, and within 24 hours he had another version out. That means a lot to me. Pulsing icon for IPS updates. How awesome is that?? And in a nod to IPS' policy, even includes non-dismissable pulsing red icons for security updates! It's a slick UIX change that transforms your front-end update reminders from obnoxiously-in-your-face to trendy. Yes, your IPS 4 updates will become trendy after you buy this plugin. Promise. Really good descriptions per setting that make it very clear what you're changing. Even includes helpful hints or examples. Really does include everything but the kitchen sink, and the kitchen sink is planned for v3. (Kidding, but not really.) Tons of small but aesthetic updates. Customize the breadcrumb, customize the User Bar, customize the search box, customize the lightbox, customize your forums, customize your posts, etc. Here are some personal highlights in how I've used the Kitchen Sink on my own community: In between all of the settings for the User Bar, I've totally transformed my User Bar from the IPS default into something that's simpler, yet more expressive and more informative. It contains more information in less space to help me better manage my community and my activity: Fixed one of my biggest pet peeves in all of IPS 4: when you're in the Profile, stopping the cover photo area from shrinking / expanding when viewing Activity. I have no idea why IPS built that in. It's useless. It's such an annoying animation. Just make it stop. Elegantly hides all of the options (edit / quote / report) in every post into one icon, which gives a cleaner look to the post and hides functions that most of my users will never use: Lastly, pulsing icon for IPS updates. It even includes more frequent pulses for more recent upgrades. Yes, it's that cool. Totally worth the price, and easily one of my most favorite plugins in the entire Marketplace. I don't often give in-depth reviews to Marketplace purchases, but if you've read my other Marketplace reviews then you know I only give reviews to those that I believe are well-worth the value. I think every IPS Admin will find the Kitchen Sink to have at least one useful feature they can use, and most likely tons they'll end up falling in love with. This is such a multi-purpose, all-functional plugin with so many small but useful aesthetic improvements that you're bound to find so many things you'll like. I'm definitely excited to see what new settings Flitterkill will add to future versions of Kitchen Sink, and to see his Kitchen Sink for other applications when they get released.

    It works well, so a star for that - and it looks nice, so another star for that. I don't like how the more colum is displayed regardless of the fact it's not being used. The shamless self promotion is pretty over-done - plastering your name in both the admin area and the top of the actual tool multiple times, which you're charging money for on top of that. It add two donate buttons to the admin area, after we've paid for it, which seems pretty dis-respectful in my opinion to the fact we've already paid you for the work. This also change the admin homepage from the system overview to the game server overview which is also pretty annoying. A small bug: when you click the "Show Players" button it just pops up with a list of brackets like below, respective to the amount of players online: There's a lot which could be improved on, especially when you're asking for donations on top of the purchase price, and plastering your name around like a proud daddy.

    If I knew that this Application was plastered with the developers copyright notice and domain name, then I would never have purchased this application in the first place. I have no issues with copyright notices, if the script's are open source and free as I believe in giving something back (long time open source developer). But, I am certainly not going to pay to advertise your domain on my site just to help your Google ratings, sorry.

    I had been in search for Wordpress & IPS integration since long and nothing was found over internet (including those messy bla bla plugins which just suck in your $$$ and do nothing) that completely integrate/sync the WP and IPS. Until now, I found this plugin that exactly does what it says so. Now my Wordpress website and IPS forum are completely synced/integrated with this superb SSO plugin. It's pretty simple to install and setup, just entering one line of API code and Forum's URL, and you're all on-the-go. It hardly took me 5 minutes to install, setup and sync WP & IPS. Here I would appreciate the developer who is very forthcoming and readily available for support or answer the queries in quick time. Although the price is bit higher, however it's worth buying because there exist no other WP & IPS SSO plugin on internet except this, as the developer owe his hard work. I would urge the developer to please don't stop the upgrades or go away with its future development (as normally the other developers do), so that we can get support whenever there is a problem. I would recommend anyone who is looking for integrating WP & IPS, to not look elsewhere but this plugin. A MUST BUY!

    If you want forum links to be transliterated after installation of this plugin, you need to clear SEO strings (that is in russian now) in forum database. Here is an example for topics, posts and members. Please add db_prefix_ if you have one. You need to do it also for calendar, annoncments and other applications installed on your community suite.

    Chatbox FREE

    Great app! works perfectly fine, very well integrated with the suite. Thank you for the good job, and for making it free! Before upgrading to IPS4, I would use the IRC-like BlueImp AjaxChat, customized with a personal hack with IPSconnect for minimal login integration, but it didn't work anymore after the upgrade. I didn't feel in the mood of spending more time coding on a deprecated solution. My users LOVE the chat functionality, I would have had a riot if no chat had been available after upgrade. You kind of saved my life I have a number of questions / suggestions (and would be happy to contribute to code if you're interested) is it possible to have several, distinct chatboxes ? (Not the same chat appearing on different places in synchronized boxes - I know how to do that - but really two different chatboxes ? typically, one for all members, and a private one that would only appear on a page which would have restricted access to some group? if so, would it be possible to include such a "subcommunity chatbox" box as a feature in a club? would it be possible to develop IRC-like actions, like the good old /me, /kick for moderators, etc? would it be possible to add a chatbot with customizable reactions like triggers (someone says "hello", the chatbot automatically answers "hello, welcome on the chat" for instance) as other people, a list of online members viewing this page (not the online standard box with all connected members) would be really great! I don't request all of this of course, just wanted to know if @onlyME thinks it would be possible with some work on my side (or if it's already possible and I just didn't find how). Thanks again

    Great addition but can you allow this for articles within pages database?

    I got Adriano to make this file for me as i saw we had MANY guest views every day, but most would spend hours going through the records in our various databases but never register and contribute back to the record authors with likes, comments, reviews etc. So i wanted something specific like this that would allow guests to view through a configurable amount of articles per database to get them "hooked" then lock them out for 24 hours with a message saying they need to register then they can view an unlimited amount.. The result? It completely worked! Our daily registration rate sky rocketed up from about 1 - 5 per day to 25+ per day. This plugin worked perfectly for me, and install was a breeze with zero errors. Grade A+ plugin here folks, purchase it if you use IP Pages

    Advanced Topic Feed

    This application is amazing, it makes posting very efficient and I can see it being very useful to maximise the amount of posts members with less time can do - simply because it provides an overview of the topics setup within the feeds configuration. Giving members a time saving platform, which comes with handy feature such as the ability to like comments and see the whole entire discussion. I think this has a wide range of possibilities. 1) It could be used as a means to give something back or add value to member groups such as VIPs (people who help support users' sites) 2) An alternative to the inbuilt activity streams (promoted within a site as a means to reduce loading times etc) 3) Used as a way to generate engaging discussions (maximise the detail in the discusses, get people involved and then plug on social media to draw engagements in) I would also like to add that @onlyME has added several of my suggestions already, and provides excellent support. The advanced topic feed application is a serious must have community addition for anyone serious about their community enjoyment/members. With the support of others, I would like to see the following features considered as I feel it would improve the application even further (please give this a like if you agree or like the feedback). ** Ability to quote comments in replies. This is a feature I would most certainly love to see added, as it would allow members to have the full topics functions when posting via the application. With the addition of multi-quote function, it would be a simple but effective feature. ** Add icon to identify if a topic is new or has been replied to by the user. I'm hopeful this would be added, as at a glance you could forget if you have replied or not. Just a simple font awesome circle for new content and a star for content which has been replied to already. These markers would make it much easier to identify new content which needs supporting, whilst giving a visual presentation to know where you in terms of posting. ** Comment updates - 'User(s) has replied notification' in line with the advanced feed. This would be somewhat tricky with the notification sounds, but it would be a great feature in my opinion. Sometimes when you're writing a reply, a member will come along and beat you to the punch or maybe write something add even more value to your own comment. Rather than editing, having a function to see where and all the updates would be a pretty cool feature, if it could be handled in a way whereby it didn't become distracting or annoying. ** More feed settings, so the ability to list new topics only, topics without replies, unread topics only. Please, please, please can we have more useful ways to configure an advanced feed, I would welcome ways of filtering what is new, what hasn't gotten replies and unread topics. This would allow us to set up other effective feeds, which can be targeted towards finding newly written or unseen content. * Ability to close/minimize the post field for comments. If you load a lot of topics up which you decide to not reply to at that moment in time, it would be useful if you could return it to its normal state - i.e minimise it. I realise that you could simply refresh/reload the page, however, if you tend to spend a lot of time reading and actually sitting on the page. Having a way to reduce the size would be beneficial. * Ability to minimise the 'submit' a new topic if loaded but unwanted. I know you can reduce it by clicking "cancel" but I do feel this might not be as obvious as a minimise option in the right corner, this is something more people would look for and would be a simple addition. Just to stress, I am not suggesting these changes to dictate or attempt to get my money's worth - I feel the price right now is a very fair one. In fact, I believe it to be value for the purchaser, yet I do like to make suggestions and hopefully come up with detailed features which could add value to others who may use it. Again, I don't want to overload OnlyME, but I have spent the majority of this past weekend finding bugs (which was very quickly fixed) and thinking about how richer the application could be. Thank you to OnlyME for taking the time to support, release and create this wonderful application. Be sure to give this a like if you value what I had said or like the suggestions, this would show the dev that others would find them useful. Buy it today folks! You won't regret it.

    Works flawless. I always missed this coming from Xenforo. Makes your forums so much more tidy. Should be included by default with IPB. Maybe they can slip it in 4.2

    It's great appliacation. This is better from IP. Chat (paid). I miss one thing with the IP. 3.4. An automated message about the new post / topic on the chatbox. It was something like this: https://community.invisionpower.com/files/file/6070-shoutbox-extender/ What do you think about my suggestion?

    First I must say, Ryan (The author of this application) is superb when it comes to support, he actively assisted me with a few teething issues I had moving to the IPS 4 version. Definitely worth the support cost The application itself is wonderful, it helps us organise the forum much easier. Personally I find prefixes much easier on the eyes when browsing for content, as you can easily get lost in the masses of similar looking threads. Keep up the great work!

    Thats like the worst piece of code I have seen in years. I bought this to see if it works, sure it works, but causes a CPU load that takes your Forum down if you go over 10 users. Maybe because you just use foreach instead of storing queries in a variable and then passing this over. Also you don´t set anything free for the garbage collection which causes the RAM to overload. Sorry but for that you don´t deserve more than 1 star.

    Support is FANTASTIC! I went back and forth with @onlyME for about 2 hours this afternoon trying to address various issues, and he has always been very helpful and supportive. This video application is a very full-featured application. You can define your own custom categories *"Action" or "Mystery"), collections (eg. "My Favorite Action Movies of 2015"), custom fields, reference pages, and custom media tags. Everything is bare bones when you first install the Videbox application, so you'll need to have a good idea of how you want to structure everything. What really impressed me are a dozen-or-so widgets you can use to create a very powerful portal page for your Videos, including widgets for Most Viewed / Featured Videos / Latest Comments, etc. There's also a really nice Nivo slider you can use. I'm still trying to figure out the custom media tags, but I'm hopeful it will be fixed soon. As a premium application in the IPS Marketplace, this is well-worth the price and the support is great.

    Increases price to $60 to provide better support to fewer people.. Then doesn't provide any support at all. The author is very inactive and support is almost nonexistent besides a few people who actively help. Not to mention they only check in once every few months which is unacceptable for this price.

    This is a really great skin and at a fair price too. One of the best aspects of this skin is the creator himself who is very active in helping you with any problems and responds very quickly, he also takes your good ideas and puts them into future updates, DICE should learn him this guy it's great to see such a dev help and take ideas in such a quick manner. If you are going to invest into a skin you should choose any of the ones TAMAN makes as IPB updates do break things but with someone so active you can expect it to get updated quickly. The skins that ipsfocus make are okay and are the same price but they are the same skins just updated over and over for like years now, I never see anything new or fresh from them, so I hope TAMAN plans to make newer skins especially ones that focus around gaming communities because so far his work really is slick and he's made it easier to edit things around to make the skin fit into your community better.

    I can see already that many of you will hate the price tag. Sure it is steep, but again, if you really need this functionality don't hesitate to buy it. I reached out to many wordpress developers and the lowest I was able to get an estimate on was around $350, most were over $400 and didn't include the other cool API functionality that is included with this. It installed easily and worked without issues. Support was very quick to answer any questions I had. I am very happy I purchased this, it was a big question mark on my to-do list for a while and it delivers. Remember this plugin allows you to keep your forum as the master system. If you want to handle all your users and everything else in IPB and not migrate your users to WP, this is the system you need. The other SSO plugin for WP is great, but that is better if you already have a WP site and want to add a forum.

    Would give it a five stars IF it would show the previous month instead of the current month. For example, my forum members vote for the member of the month at the end of January and that is for January's member of the month. Basically works a month behind. That isn't possible for this app at the moment. For this app, people vote for February's month during February, when the votes for feb are all in (at the end of the month) the member will be selected but not be shown in the widget during March. Is it possible to vote for the previous months member of the month, makes more sense, so for example, January is over but during January people voted that member X was the best member. I click on that member to make them Member of the month for January, during the month of February, January's member of the month will be show! Thanks for the app. Hopefully you can change it slightly.

    Great app, brilliant fast support! Highly recommended but you need to be careful to limit the refresh if on Shared Hosting, just like Shoutbox as all these types of apps hammer the server. Mine is now set to 2-3 min refresh as a result of server resources. Not a reflection on Chatbox though. Two issues I've noticed: When you edit a message as an admin, there is no obvious way to save the edited message, no button or anything, so not figured that out yet. I have to delete it and retype. Almost all of my members say the sound notification alert of a new message is intermittent and many don't hear it at all despite using a PC and having the audio option switched on. I've experienced the same on the developers site too. Difficult to replicate and so very hard to track down. Great app, highly recommended!

    I installed it since Shoutbox is not ready yet and I like it. One comment...I'd prefer newer shouts showing at the top instead of at the bottom. I don't see any setting for it.

    EasyPopup

    onlyME delivers again! I built an entire guest registration popup campaign around this application, and have already seen increased registrations because of it. Simple install, setup was a a single switch and building each popup was clearly laid out and easy. Excellent addition to your community.

    Fakes some users on your forum. Great for forums just starting up, your forum goes from a ghost town no one wants to bother with, to a place that people take the time to register. No performance hits and dead simple install. Works hand in hand with WhoWeAre app, to show a vibrant lively community that new people will want to be part of.

    Who We Are

    I begged Jose to write this plugin, it took weeks to convince him. On my old 3.X board this was the most used plugin on my site, everybody started their day by using it to immediately see who had been on, who had replied to posts I was engaged in and what new posts were made, all in one place. The lack of this plugin was really the only thing stopping me from upgrading to 4.X. Jose finally agreed to do it for me, and it came out perfectly, he made it so there was no extra load time, no unnecessary hits on the database and more options than I could possibly want (I didn't need the vertical sidebar location, but he made it so it can gracefully degrade into the sidebar). Overall, it is a beautiful plugin that really engages my users, I am sure your users will be equally happy with it. Highly recommended.

    Why is this not an official app for IP Suite 4.0? This is an incredible addition to my website and the moment I installed it, my community was jumping up and down for joy! I have yet to find one bug on this new app and Kevin (the programmer behind this masterpiece) is very easy to get in touch with. 5/5 hands down! Great work!
