    In our spirit of keeping everyone up to date, this topic will serve as a running list of what's new in IP.Board 3.2.0. As we make changes we will update this topic so check back now and then. This is not yet a complete list as we are still making changes, adding new features, and doing other work. If you don't see what you're looking for here just yet please check back later! As always with IPS, everything listed here is not part of a "possible" roadmap. We will only post items on this list when they are 100% complete and included in IP.Board 3.2.0 so you can trust that what we post in public is what you will get. Calendar Improvements SEO Improvements: Consistency: RSVP: Simplification and interface changes: iCalendar support: Moderator Functions Report Center improvements: Editing Member improvements: Moderator Control Panel: New Text Editor New editor and auto-save: Cleaner interface, quick reply, quick quoting: New post alert while typing reply: AdminCP New style: New "like" reputation mode: Easy member management: Improved restrictions: Forum Management: Remote skin editing: Core Functionality View new content and topic marking improvements: and part 2: New Photo Editor: Shared media: Tagging and prefixes: Notification enhancements: and New mobile skin: Miscellaneous Changes "Delete All" button has been added to the SQL error logs page Linear+ and Outline modes removed for topic viewing (they're a hold-over from an older time on the web and it's time to retire them) Support for IPv6 You can now use the member management tools to search for incomplete members Pagination added to the incomplete members page of the ACP If only one skin or language is choosable, the dropdown selector at the bottom of the page will be hidden Member photos and member avatars are being merged into one function: member photo. There was too much overlap between the two features. IP.Calendar and IP.Chat will no longer be bundled in the IP.Board download zip to reduce the size of the download. This also allows clients who have no interest in IP.Chat or IP.Calendar to choose not to download or install those applications. Of course those who do wish to use those applications can easily download from the client area and install them. Rebuild FURL cache button has been moved to the cache management page. It is now possible to rename the “hooks” folder to something else editing the constant IPS_HOOKS_PATH in initdata.php. You can now edit each group’s report center permissions directly from the group management area Report center now supports item marking to remember and indicate which reports you’ve viewed Customers who have purchased Copyright Removal no longer need to enter a separate Copyright Removal key. The copyright will automatically be removed when activating your license. New settings for attachments to limit size of files stored on disk Separate ACP restriction options have been added for managing spam users and incomplete users (access to these areas were previously controlled by the option “can manage banned users”). “Show X Last visitors in profile” now shows always the last 5 visitors if the setting is enabled rather than having a 3, 5, 10 dropdown choice. New ACP tool to create the cronjobs to rebuild sphinx indexes When adding a ban filter in the ACP you will now have an option to enter a reason visible to all admins (the reason won’t show in the public side). Pinned, polls, and moved topic prefixes have been moved to language files (they were previously in the settings area) Many redundant or pointless settings removed. Other settings moved to more logical locations. Some settings groups merged to create fewer groups to go through when setting up your community. System Settings menu item moved to a top-level menu item under System tab so it's available with one-click anywhere in AdminCP. The note box in your My Settings (UserCP) area has been removed. It is a hold-over from years past and doesn't seem to make sense in community software. If you are one of the very few people who use this: make a copy of your notes before upgrade. The unread topic marking system will now remember what page of a topic you left off reading rather than assume you read the entire topic on the first click. Other Important Changes IP.Subscriptions, our simple application to allow you to sell member group promotions on your community, will be updated to work with IP.Board 3.2 but this will be the last update to IP.Subscriptions. IP.Subscriptions has been around for many years - long before communities were assumed to bring in revenue - and it's time to retire it to focus on our more modern application: IP.Nexus. With the release of IP.Board 3.2, IP.Subscriptions will be considered end of life (EOL) and will no longer be supported. Clients should switch to the new IP.Nexus product which is continually updated and contains many more opportunities to monetize your community. A member of our community, Andy Rixon, has agreed to take on continuing development of this product so those of you who use it will still have a solution. The Portal application in IP.Board has existed from the very early days of our company. It was only ever intended as a simple portal and demo of the software but grew a bit over time. It has had minimal updates and the feature set is very minimal when compared to today's expectations of community owners and operators. The Portal application will not ship with IP.Board 3.2 and should be considered EOL. It will be available in the IPS Marketplace after IP.Board 3.2's release for those of you who do use it so you can still upgrade to 3.2. We will also post information on how to easily replicate the Portal's functionality in IP.Content which offers all that the old Portal did and much, much more. A member of our community, Andy Rixon, has agreed to take on continuing development of this product so those of you who use it will still have a solution. As IP.Board 3.2 will have a whole new default skin, the CleanCut skin will become redundant and will therefore no longer be updated by IPS.

    We've recently spoken about how we've brought our Gallery and Blog apps up to date with interface overhauls to bring them inline with the high standards our customers expect. Keeping this in mind, we're thrilled to announce that we've taken Commerce right back to 2009. This needs an explanation. Way back in 2009, Obama was inaugurated as the 44th President. Minecraft was put into beta, Slumdog Millionaire was released to critical praise and we had a product called IP.Subscriptions. IP.Subscriptions was a lightweight member subscriptions manager that allowed members to purchase elevated permissions via a user group upgrade. It was a fine little app. However, on the horizon we had a brand new eCommerce app in development. Then called Nexus, now called Commerce (we took months to come up with that). It made sense for us to merge the products into one app given they both had overlapping functionality. They both could create packages to promote members to a new user group. Commerce was much more developed as an invoicing and billing system. Everyone was happy. Almost. Commerce has grown to be an incredibly powerful app. It can sell anything from physical products like t-shirts, to digital products such as license keys and it can even manage your hosting set-up. We use it for our support and billing systems, so we know how robust it is. While it's an incredibly powerful commerce system, setting up basic subscriptions packages became a little more complex. Over the past few years we've received a lot of feedback on this. We've listened. Commerce Member Subscriptions We've built a brand new section into Commerce specifically for membership subscriptions. Let's take a look at this in more detail. On the front end, there's a very clear and easy to understand page for membership subscriptions. The main subscriptions interface Here you can see all the available packages, which one you're currently subscribed to and the upgrade and downgrade options. A simple way to upgrade There's several choices for costing upgrades in the Admin CP, here we have chosen to charge the difference between packages. Get to your subscriptions easily Your subscriptions are easily found in the user menu. If the Admin allows, the package you're subscribed to appears as a badge on your profile. There's also a little widget showing the packages which you can drag and drop to the sidebar for an additional prompt for non-subscribers. This gives Invision Community a very clear and easy to understand interface for subscriptions which lives outside of the Commerce store and its packages. Now, let's dive into the Admin CP The main engine for this feature is the package list. This is in a separate area within Commerce. The list also shows the number of currently active and inactive subscribers. This links to the list of subscribers. Other than Bob having a total nightmare, you can easily view which members are currently active. The buttons link you to the Commerce invoice and purchase. If you wish to add a member to a subscription without charging them (you generous soul, you), then that is easily possible. Creating a new subscription package is very straight forward. We've built a new form which is stripped down to the fundamental items you'll need for a subscription. As you would expect, there are several settings to control the system. A few things worth mentioning here: You can force new members to purchase a subscription on sign-up You can show or hide the profile badge indicating which package they purchased. You can choose to allow upgrades or downgrades. You can choose how you'd like to charge for upgrades or downgrades Thank you to everyone who has provided feedback over the years. We're really pleased to present this new feature and hope that it'll make your daily lives just a little easier. Let us know what you think!

    Now that IPB3 is here, I think its really time to address the way emoticons are managed because times have changed and boards no longer have just 20 of them, many have accumulated 100's of them. Large, small, light, dark, seasonal etc. Surely there has to be a better, less confusing way of managing them for Admins, and I seem to recall suggestions in the past have been confirmed as having to wait for IPB3 because of its improved programming structure. Sorry I'm going back to basics here, because after several years I still don't understand or have forgotten how Emoticon Management is supposed to work in the AdminCP, and there is still no documentation for it. I don't understand why it is that you can add numerous folders of smilies in addition to the default emotion group, if IPB doesn't automatically include them (the default folder and all additional folders or child folders) when you actually come to post? I also don't understand why you can't turn entire groups of emoticons on and off. One possible solution... Lets say for example you have 150 smilies on your board, consisting of: 50 general ones 50 Halloween theme50 Christmas themed (a little OTT but will do as an example!).It could just as well be large, small, adult, whatever... You wouldn't need to have the 100 seasonal emoticons available to click all year round, and you wouldn't need to have access when posting to the Christmas ones when posting near to or at Halloween, and vice versa. So why not have a folder for each group, and have a check box in the Emoticon Manager to instantly enable or disable each group of smilies as required, and a separate sub-screen to enable, disable or delete individual emoticons within each group, either one at a time or all? This would make things much more manageable for this with lots of smilies, and all smilies would still show in older posts because they are still on the server, just not all in the clickable list all at once. You could take it a step further, by adding tabs (suggested so many times before) to the Show All Emoticon box, so that clicking on default or general would show those, then a tab would be available for the Halloween, large, small etc as defined by the groups in the AdminCP Emoticon Management screen.

    New: Delayed Deletes

    This entry is about our IPS Community Suite 4.2 release. I am sure we have all accidentally clicked delete on a post in your community and then realized you needed it. Luckily we now have Delayed Deletes to easily restore deleted content. Settings in AdminCP You can delete just as you normally do as you moderate and your posts will be removed just like now. The main difference is that you can now view recently deleted content and restore as needed in the Moderator Control Panel. Easily view what is pending delete All you have to do is click the deleted item and you will be taken to that item in context of where it used to be. This makes is much easier to understand why it was deleted and decide if you should restore. Restore and view deleted content in context Delayed Deletes is a feature that could be a life saver for your community and we cannot wait to get it out to you.

    Minor releases are almost always just maintenance releases. We gather up a fistful of bug reports and fix them to ensure that every month or so, our clients enjoy more stability and efficiency with Invision Community. However, more recently we've noticed that we're running low on bug reports, so we've managed to squeeze in a handful of improvements in Invision Community 4.4.5. Let's take a look and see what's new in Pages. How should the canonical tag behave? While this isn't the most exciting name for a feature, it does explain it reasonably well. We had a recent discussion on the forums where it was pointed out that the canonical tag directed search engines to the first page of any record. While this makes perfect sense for an articles or blog system where the content you create is more important than the comments, it makes less sense if the user-generated content (aka the comments) is more important than the content you put up. A good example here is where you put up a video or link for review. You don't want the canonical tag pointing to the first page as it will ignore the reviews themselves. If you didn't understand much of that, don't worry. The idea behind this feature is to provide Google and friends with a better hint about which content is more important. A happier Google bot slurping your site is a good thing. How about that Admin CP menu? When you create a new database in Pages, it is shown in the ACP menu under 'Content'. This is fine, but when you get a lot of databases, it starts looking a little cluttered, and it can be hard to find the correct one. We've reworked the menu so items have their own section, and can be re-ordered using the ACP menu re-ordering system. Member fields are now filterable. Pages allows specific field types to be filterable. This means you can sort by them with the table's advanced search box, and you can drag and drop a filters widget next to the table to refine the rows shown. Now a member custom field is filterable, which is handy if you use them in your databases. Other areas of the suite. Messenger search A while back, we made a change that removed the ability to search messenger by the sender or recipient name. We also limited the reach of the search system to one year and newer. Unsurprisingly, this wasn't very popular. We've restored sender, and recipient name searching removed the one year limit and re-engineered the internals of search, so it's more efficient and returns results much faster. How many members do you have? You can see quite quickly if you have the member stats widget on the front end, but finding out via the Admin CP is a little more tricky. Until now! We've added a dashboard widget that not only shows the number of members you have registered, but also a break down of their email opt-in status. A happier autocomplete. Apple has this cool feature where if you receive a text message for a two-factor authentication login, it offers to auto-fill the code box for you. We've had a sweep throughout the suite to ensure two-factor authentication fields allow this autocomplete to happen. While we were at it, we made sure that other fields are more easily autocompleted. That wraps up the new features in Invision Community 4.4.5. How many have you spotted after upgrading? Let us know your favourite below.

    A picture says a thousand words, they say. If getting those pictures online is troublesome, some of those words might be a little choice. Gallery has been an integral part of our community suite for just about as long as T1 Tech Mark Higgins can remember (and he has many years of memories). It has seen many interfaces changes as the years have rolled by. The most recent version received a fair amount to feedback on usability. We've listened. We've re-engineered most of Gallery's key interfaces to make uploading new images to your community frictionless. Lets take a look through the major changes. Improved submission process Submitting images has to be simple or else users will give up and your gallery will be underutilized. We have spent a lot of time simplifying and speeding up the submissions process for your users. The first thing that will be noticed is that the submission process is not presented as a wizard anymore, and the choice to submit to a category or album has been significantly cleaned up and simplified. Choosing a container Here, I have chosen the category I wish to submit to, so now I am asked if I want to submit directly to the category, if I want to create a new album, or if I want to submit to an existing album. Choosing one of those last two options will load the appropriate forms to create an album or select an existing album, respectively. Afterwards, the modal expands to full screen and you will naturally select your images next, and there's a lot to talk about here. Overhauled submission interface First and foremost, the interface has changed significantly to both simplify the UI and to make actually using the interface easier. When you click on an image, the form is loaded to the right immediately without an AJAX request needed to fetch the form. In addition to quickly setting the credit and copyright information for all images at once, you can now set the tags for all images quickly and easily without having to edit each image individually. Images support drag n drop reordering in the uploader here, which means that you can drag n drop images to different positions to control their order. Many users previously would name images "Image 1", "Image 2", and so on, and then set their albums to order images by name in order to control the order the images were displayed in. This is no longer necessary now that you can manually reposition the images. The default description editor is a pared down textarea box, but you can still use the rich text editor if you wish. The ability to enable maps for geo-encoded images and to upload thumbnails for videos is still supported as well, and those options will show up when appropriate in the right hand panel. The 100 image per submission limit has also been lifted. You can now upload many more images in one go with no hard limit imposed. Upon clicking submit images, you will see the typical multiredirector to store all of your images, however you will notice that it processes much faster than it did in 4.2 and below. Better submission control Administrators can now configure categories such that can accept only images, only albums, or both. This means you can now create categories that cannot be submitted to directly, and you can create categories that albums cannot be used with. This is a feature that has been oft-requested since the release of 4.0, and we are happy to report that it will be available in our next release. Additionally, album creators (if permitted) can also now create shared albums. When you create a new album, you can now specify (under the Privacy menu) who can submit to the album, with your available options being: Only me Anyone Only the users I specify Only the groups I specify Prior to 4.3, albums have always been owned by one user and only that user could submit to them. Invision Community 4.3 will open up albums so that anyone can submit to them, dependent upon the album creator's preferences and needs. The choice is yours as to who can submit to your albums New image navigation Another major change with Gallery 4.3 is that clicking an image now launches that image in a lightbox to view it and interact with it. This lightbox is context-aware, allowing you to visit the next and previous images in the listing, whether that is a category or album listing, or the featured images or new images listings on the Gallery homepage, for example. The new image lightbox Firstly, I will note that you are seeing the image here with my mouse cursor over the image area, exposing the title, tags, and some various buttons. When you mouse away from the image those overlays fade away to highlight the image itself better. As you can see, you can navigate left and right here to view the next and previous image in this context, and you can otherwise interact with the image as you would have if you had visited the older-style image view page (including the ability to rate, review and comment). The new Gallery release will introduce a new advertisement location in the right hand column to allow you to show advertisements, even in the lightbox. If you follow a link to a full image view page, the lightbox will automatically launch when the page loads, still allowing you to interact in a familiar manner. Additionally, if you move through enough images in the lightbox to reach a new page (for example, if you click on the last image in the album listing and then click on the next image button), the listing itself behind the lightbox will update for easier usability if the user closes the lightbox. One final thing to note is that the interface has been made more mobile friendly, particularly through the introduction of swiping support. You can swipe left and right in the lightbox, and in image carousels, to see the next and previous images. Notable performance improvements As we mentioned at the beginning, we recognize there is a balance between performance, usability, and attractiveness, particularly with regards to an image Gallery. For that reason, we have made Gallery's performance a major focus in 4.3, and have implemented some changes that bring with them a noticeable performance improvement. Firstly, we have adjusted the software to only store two copies of an image (in addition to the original), instead of four. In previous versions, we stored a thumbnail, a small copy, a medium copy and a large copy of an image, all of which arbitrarily sized and designed to best meet our layout needs without showing an image too large or too small in a given space. We have simplified this vastly by storing a slightly larger "small" image, and storing a large copy. Diskspace usage is reduced dramatically as a result, and bandwidth usage is actually lowered as well since only two copies of an image need to be delivered to the browser instead of four. Next, we have implemented prefetching of the 'next' and 'previous' pages when you launch the lightbox image view. This means that when a user navigates to the next image in the lightbox, it loads immediately instead of waiting for the content to be fetched from the server. From a UX perspective, this provides a much snappier and responsive interface, making users more apt to interact with the site. We have additionally sped up the submission process as previously mentioned. The order of execution for certain events that must happen during submission has been moved around a bit, resulting in a faster experience for the end user actually submitting the images. Because we know the details matter, we have implemented other smaller improvements as well. For example, the link to rebuild images in the AdminCP previously resulted in a redirect process that rebuilt the images while you waited, but now a background task is launched so that you can continue with what you were doing while the images get rebuilt in the background. From start to finish, the Gallery UI and UX has been touched on and improved, and we hope you enjoy these improvements when you start using the new version.

    Next time anybody suggests that the Invision Community team doesn't listen, send them to this article. There's so much here that I've seen people bring up over the past year. What an amazing product. You lovely, lovely people.

    So I just did an absolutely fresh install of 4.1.19.4 on a site I am preparing for an academic grant application review. For some reason it installed and yet was utterly unusable because no CSS or template styles were loading at all. Timeline panic made me hit the Outage button. Long story short: @Rhett responded in one minute. Problem fixed in 15 minutes. Before I crawl back into my workhole, I just wanted to say: THAT is service.

    Stripe is the most popular payment method in Commerce, allowing communities to take payments by card securely with easy setup. While there's no doubt that credit cards are still the most popular methods of making a payment, digital innovations such as Apple Pay are increasing in popularity. For 4.3 we've deepened our integration to support some of their latest features. Apple Pay & Google Pay Apple Pay allows users to pay quickly with their iPhone, iPad or Mac (with Safari and either a paired iPhone or using the MacBook Pro with Touch ID) using the card details stored on the device, authenticated with Touch ID or Face ID. Apple Pay Google Chrome (on desktop or Android devices) supports a similar feature allowing users to pay with card details stored in their Google account with Google Pay, or stored in Chrome itself. Paying with card details stored in Google Chrome Both of these features are now supported through Stripe in Invision Community 4.3. Setup is simple - for Apple Pay you simply need to verify that you own your domain by uploading a file you obtain from the Stripe dashboard, and nothing special is needed for Google Pay - and then create the payment method in the AdminCP. Stripe does not charge any additional fees for either option. Commerce will automatically hide the option if the user's device does not support either method. 3D Secure Also known as Verified by Visa, Mastercard SecureCode, and other brand names, 3D Secure is a system that is used to verify a customer's identity before purchase is completed and transfers the fraud loss liability from the merchant to the cardholder bank in case of fraudulent disputes. After the user has entered their card details, they are redirected to their bank's website and asked to provide additional verification. Our integration with Stripe in 4.3 now supports this process. A new setting allows you to choose if you want to use 3D Secure just for cards which require it (i.e. cards which would decline the payment if 3D Secure is not completed) or for all cards which optionally support it as well. Amex Express Checkout American Express cardholders can use Amex Express checkout to pay by using their American Express login rather than providing their card information. This is also now supported through Stripe in 4.3. Amex Express Checkout Alipay, Bancontact, Giropay, iDEAL, SOFORT These are popular payment processors internationally (Alipay is popular in China, Bancontact in Belgium, Giropay in Germany, iDEAL in the Netherlands, and SOFORT in several European countries). The checkout experience is similar to PayPal with the user being redirected to the appropriate site, authenticating the payment, and then being redirected back. All of these are also now supported through Stripe in 4.3. Dispute/Chargeback Handling A dispute (also known as a chargeback) occurs when one a cardholder questions your payment with their card issuer, which causes the funds, plus a fee, to immediately be taken from your account until evidence is provided that the transaction was legitimate. Anyone operating an online store knows how frustrating this experience can be. In 4.3, we've made dealing with this situation a little easier. When a dispute is created, Commerce will now mark the transaction as disputed, which will immediately revoke any benefits from the purchase (for example, if it's for a subscription that moves them into a different group, they will be placed back into their original group; if it's a Downloads file, they won't be able to download it any more; if it's for a physical item that hasn't been shipped yet, the shipping order will be placed on hold). Disputed Transaction All transactions with currently open disputes can be accessed quickly from the transaction list. The transaction page will show you the status and reason for the dispute, and links to your Stripe dashboard where you can respond. When the dispute is resolved, the transaction screen will be updated, with either the transaction being marked as refunded if the dispute is lost, or going back to paid if the dispute is won and the funds returned to you. A dispute that was lost A dispute that was won Radar Radar is Stripe's suite of fraud detection tools using machine learning and customisable rules to help detect fraudulent transactions. Stripe will automatically blocks transactions is considers highest risk already. However, for "elevated" risk transactions, while Stripe would alert you of them so you could review them, Commerce would process the transaction normally. In 4.3, Commerce will place any transactions which Radar reports as having an "elevated" risk level on hold for manual review, so you can decide whether to approve or not before the funds have been captured. In addition, the transaction details screen for Stripe transactions now provides some additional information about Stripe's checks on the transaction, including the Radar risk level, if the CVC check passed, and if the billing address provided matches the card's billing address. If a fraudulent transaction does make it through, you will now have the option to indicate this when refunding the transaction to help Stripe's anti-fraud systems learn.

    This entry is about our IPS Community Suite 4.2 release Improvements to our Gallery application, both in terms of new functionality and minor enhancements, are coming in 4.2. One area that was identified early on for improvement was the Gallery image view page and specifically how the lightbox feature available on this page behaved. We adjusted the buttons that overlay the main Gallery image to use icons instead of text If you click to view an alternative image size, we improved the header styling of this page as well for clarity and to allow easier downloading of the image you are viewing When viewing an image, you can open the image in a lightbox by clicking the icon at the very top far right corner. When doing so, there was previously a button at the bottom left hand corner of the lightbox if you wanted to download the image. We modernized this experience by implementing an overlay that you can click on in order to download the full size image instead. You will notice there are now left/right arrows in the lightbox view here. You can click left/right to scroll through the images in the container, just as if you clicked through the images in the photostrip immediately below the image on the main page. You can also use the left/right arrow keys on your keyboard. While this would navigate through the photostrip previously, it will now also navigate through the images in the lightbox as well. When viewing on your mobile device, the lightbox has been cleaned up allowing more image to display which is a welcome change for your mobile users. We have more changes coming to Gallery in 4.2 which we will be revealing soon but in the mean time we hope you enjoy these useful improvements.

    Suggestion! in the features

    The day IPB becomes like Facebook is the day I switch to different forum software. 3DKiwi
  22. 25 points
    Hi Guys IPB is awesome and far better than any other forum software available in market. IPB team working very hard to implement new feature every month i appreciate their hard work But now in smartphone world everyone is using mobile devices that have apps to access their favorite content. people don't like first open browser, then type url and then type username, password. Mobile friendly websites are no longer a solution. Forums are facing competition from Telegram groups, discord server, Facebook Groups, Whatsapp Group @Charles PLEASE HELP US !!!!! I know it is very difficult to maintain native app. so Now companies use hybrid approach to cut cost for mobile app. It would be great if IPB team develop the in house Progressive Web app for IPB. IPB theme already mobile friendly so every little to do Just need to implement 1. Service- worker for Offline uses 2. Push Notification for Notifications 3. Login and signup screen (that remember the user name and password) Here some Key Benefits Of PWA over Native App IPB4 team already have brilliant javascript developers. I think it would not too difficult for them to do this. I would like to Pay for this feature separately if it will be developed. It would be Milestone for IPB 4 as compared to other forums software. Others IPB members if you are agree please vote this feature as much you can and share your's feed back too and don't Forget to Participate in Above Poll Question Companies Using PWA!! PWA is not just another Buzz word, PWA again transferring the power back to Web Developers which was lost during native mobile app era. I think REST API based apps for IPB not right approach, From developers point of views, it will make mobile apps hard to maintain and compatible with every new version of IPB and updates of hundered of IPB plugins. However PWA just uses Mobile Responsive of Website. Forums Founders spent both Time and money to make his/her community sustainable. sometime new users like the forums but forget url and browser history deleted,at that time website looses one member ? this same things happened with me many times and may be other members share the same experience. For iOS users or Android users there is more chances, new users of clients Forum website click on App icons (Installed by PWA ) again than open browser inside the mobile, remember the website URL and hit the enter. No matter whether PWA support push notifications for particular mobile os or not :) PWA fully supported in Window 10 redstone 4. We can't ignore the billions machine running window 10. Window 10 PWA app would be huge opportunity to keep the website users engage with website. Just imagine clients Forums apps are installed on users PC. Even They don't open browser and enter forum URL, with single push notification you can make users again engage to your website ? More and more adopting the window 10 This is my humble request to IPB team please please develop in house mobile app for IPB others wise our communities websites will loose the competition in mobile app age. THANKS :)

    The last bit about showing multiple users sharing the same device is very important to me as an admin. Very nice addition! If you can take this one step further and create a page that shows ALL devices with multiple users, that would be an extremely useful report. This allows you to more easily catch people creating multiple accounts, especially handy to help catch trolls who are trying to evade a ban. Thank you!

    IPS 4 Stability

    And mostly due to IPS policy.... hear me out. Nearly every update of 4.x breaks a multitude of sites. Updates are often quickly (sometimes as little as 48 hours) followed by an update to an update. IPS has released security updates on Fridays, and most recently on a Friday just before a 3 day weekend when IPS is closed. Anyone who works in in I.T. knows that you NEVER EVER upgrade production until you've tested it out on Dev. Right? Here's where IPS's policy is failing not just them, but all of their customers. If you encounter an issue when upgrading a DEV environment, IPS will do NOTHING. They won't even LOOK at the issue. They expect you to upgrade your production environment... and if something breaks, let your site sit there broken until they get around to fixing it. As a site operator, that is terrible terrible business practice. From a customer service standpoint, that is terrible terrible business practice on the part of IPS. Here is the scenario that just went down: I upgraded my Dev site from 4.1.12 to 4.1.12.1. After the upgrade, I can no longer create blocks. Get error EX1364 I open a ticket with IPS. They reply that because it is a DEV board, they can't help. I ask if they can give me a hint on where to look. They say no, But they've already had to escalate this same error to Tier 2 support for someone else. I offer my Dev board as another data point for investigation, but they decline and the ticket is closed. I open a Bug Report for the EX1364 error IPS says they cannot recreate the issue (It's magical how often that happens) They close the bug report because it is a development installation. I post this post. IPS management comes in here Explains they listen to customers. Repeats the policy in spite of it not being helpful to anyone on either side. Closes the thread because it is critical of their policy. Now, just to be clear. I am not expecting IPS or support to fix my DEV site into working order. It's a Dev site and it is made to be broken. However, if we customers are going to be forced to be beta testers for every release of the software, then IPS needs to actually work with us to resolve the issues that we report either via ticket or by bug tracker. Furthermore, IPS should not be expecting us to beta test in production. Yippie that Andy Millne cannot reproduce the error.... I CAN, and according to Marc Stridgen apparently so can other people who are running in production. Instead of throwing away customer feedback, IPS should be saying something like "Well, we're not going to fix your Dev board, but we'll take a look to see if we can find the root cause.". If the root cause is some server configuration that is outside their control, then let the customer know and move on, but if the root cause is a flaw in the IPS software that should be corrected, then that is an opportunity for further improvement of the software. And no... buying a second license just for development is NOT an acceptable solution. I'm not buying a second license just because you don't have a QA process. Get your QA process right first before you start pushing out updates.

    Quick request if you have 2 minutes...

    Hi all, I have a request that will only take a few minutes of your time, and will give you something in return. We're finally getting around to creating books and guides to help new customers get comfortable on the Invision Community platform. I'm looking for a few positive quotes and 'soundbites' we can use on a few pages around the site, on social media and in these guides. Hopefully you've got nice things to say. @LaCollision gave us a very nice quote a while back. So things like: That sort of thing. If you have a specific use for Invision Community, then we'd love to hear from you. If you are happy to leave a comment, please also leave your name and URL to your site. If the site is safe for work, then we'll link back to it when using any quotes on our site and on social media. We get a fairly health bit of traffic so I'm sure you'll get a good number of click throughs too. If we get 20 useable quotes, I'll post an exclusive picture of Charles and Lindy holding a hotdog from 2008. I did not seek their permission before making this promise. Thanks for reading!

    Version 2.8.7.1

    194 downloads

    This is the self hosted version of babble chat. it requires you to have access to nodejs or provide nodejs for it. this is a unconditional requirement for this application. if you are interested in this program, but can not provide access to nodejs, there is a service version located here: Babble is a real time chat system using node.js and sockets. It uses less resources and doesn’t rely on long polling or interval scripts to check for new message. Babble is fully featured with those features laid out below. Demo: http://codingjungle.com/babble (you will need to register or logged in to be able to see or use). If you would like private demo of Babble, you can send me a PM here or on my site. Discussion Thread: This thread is for discussion only, Support information is provide on file listing. NOTICE: If you are upgrading Babble, you will need to restart your babble.js application. if you have moved it from the default directory you will need to take the updated one, verify the information it contains, and replace the one you removed and then restart the babble.js app for node. Requirements: A modern browser that supports web sockets. (Firefox/IE11/Edge/Chrome/Safari supports websockets. For mobile browsers, I will only be supporting Safari and Chrome). Node.js installed on a local or a remote server that can run a node.js script. I have only tested the last 4 versions of node.js, but the latest version of node.js you can install, the better. nodejs v4.x+ (v0.10 and v0.12 do not ship with ECMAScript 2015 enabled by default and might have other version related issues with third party libs in use for babble) and npm to be installed. Note: babble requires node.js. This is an unconditional requirement. So many of the features of babble are node.js dependent, that there isn’t any fallback to another web technology (like ajax/long polling). With that in mind, Babble is very javascript dependent, it will not degrade gracefully if javascript has been disabled in the browser,if you have any tin foil hat wearing members, they will not be able to use babble. Note 2: Cloudflare, cloudflare only has a limited range of ports that can be used if you choose to use this particular service, you will need to contact them about what ports are available to you. the only alternative to this is to use a sub-domain (not tied into cloudflare) and/or the servers IP address instead of your sites URL for the NODE URL in the ACP. Note 3: **if you are running a server that doesn't use a LAMP ( Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP) or LEMP (Linux, NGINX, MySQL, PHP) server, I will not be able to give support for. AFAIK node.js/socket.io will run on windows and mac os x, but configuration might prove difficult. As for *BSD servers, they should operate similar to a Linux server. Refunds will be given at my discretion, this does not mean I will not provide them for any reason, but for a valid reason. Each purchase only entitles a installation on 1 live site and 1 dev site. If you wish to run babble on multiple sites, you will need to purchase babble for each site. If you are found in violation of this agreement, I can choose to revoke your access to future updates and support until the matter is rectified. If you purchase a copyright removal, Babble will occasional make a call home to http://codingjungle.com to validate the copyright removal key. Copyright Removal keys will need to be purchased for each purchase of babble if you wish to run it on multiple sites without branding. Features: Rooms: Babble comes with two default rooms that can not be removed. The “Babble” room is used by default for Babble, and the Widget Room is used by the “Widget” (the widget can be configured to use the default room). Each room has permissions that can be set like “View, Message, Whisper, Edit, Delete, Upload, and Archives”. Each room also has the ability to be configured independently of each other on uploads (what types and sizes), how many messages to show by default, rules to show before entering the room. Rooms can also have 3 bots they can configure (more on bots later). Rooms can be password protected. Uploads: Each room can be configured to allow uploads. If the upload is an image, the image will be “lazy loaded” and resized to fit the dimensions of the message area better. If it is a non-image upload, it will display a link to download. NOTE: Groups who can see the room, can also download and view images. Sounds: Babble comes with a collection of sounds for send, receive, entering, leaving and whispers. Users can enable or disable each sound as they see fit. The sound files can be replaced at any time in the ACP by pointing to the corresponding sound setting to the new location (this is to avoid future updates from overwriting your sound files). NOTE: due to some limitations in mobile OS’s (iOS and android) even if the sounds are enabled by the user, there is one additional step they must take to hear sounds on the effected OS’s. On mobile devices a Speaker Icon will appear, that will need to be activated to be able to hear sounds, this action must be done each page refresh. Whispers: Whispers are private messages that are sent in between users. They will open in a “tab” in the room and will flash when a new message is received if you aren’t currently active on the tab that is. Whispers only work inside the room, you currently can not “whisper” to some one who is not logged into the room you are in (at a later date this might change). Browser Notifications: A user can set how many new messages they receive in a room before a browser notification is triggered (or they can disable them all together). Currently these do not work on mobile OS’s, in the future I plan on adding notifications for iOS and Android. New Message Order: By default babble will order messages newest to oldest, for some users this might not be ideal, so they can reverse the order to oldest to newest. Any new message after this will honor the setting. Group Content: You can set a min. content count per room for each user group before they can send messages. You can use this feature as a reward to your members for participation on your site. Note: Messages made in babble will not increment content counts. Command Aliasing: you can set any number of aliases to existing/custom commands, this will help if you want to "localize" the commands. Stats - if stats are enabled for a room, you can keep track of basic stats like how many messages have been made in a room, the most online ever in a room, the current day's tally of how many have been in a room, and the top 5 users who make messages in a room. Archive - if enabled, a user can select to load messages previous made in the room. this is a group permission. BOTS: Babble comes with 4 bots, each serve a different function and are triggered in different ways. 3 of the bots can be configured per room, where the 4th bot can be configured to which rooms it sends messages too, as most of its settings are “global”. Hopefully Babble Bots can help you accomplish some pretty amazing things and enrich your users experience with babble. Time Bot: the time bot can be configured per room*. This bot can be configured to send different messages at different times**. You can use HTML/BBC in the bots messages. This bot runs from a task, so its HIGHLY recommend that you have your task configured to run as a cron job to see the best results. If not configured to a cron, this bot might not function properly. * you can configure this bot to store its messages in the database or not. Due to a technical limitation with node.js the bot is unable to check to see if there are any users in the room or not, so instead of having the chat history filled with messages from the time bot, they will “go away” on a page refresh. ** this is in minutes passed since the bot was configured, if you set a message to send every 10 minutes, then the first message will be sent 10 minutes after you configured the bot, and each additional message will be sent 10 minutes after this. Count Bot: This bot can be configured per room. You can configure this bot to send messages after x amount of messages sent by users*. You can also send different messages x amount of messages sent. You can use HTML/BBC and special variables(1) in your messages. * this does not include whispers sent or messages from other bots. Phrase Bot: This bot can be configured per room. You can configure this bot to send messages when a match to a word/phrase is made. You can have multiple matches for the same message or multiple messages for different matches. You can use HTML/BBC and specials variables(1) in the messages. Notifications: This is the bot that has a global configuration. This bot will send messages out when new content is posted to the supported applications*. Permissions are honored on these notifications, so if the user doesn’t have access to to view the area in question, they wont see the notification. This bot can only be configured to tell it which rooms to run in, the rest of its settings are global due to its nature. * IPS applications are the only ones support for notifications. In theory any application that uses the content item class should work, but I have only tested my own application that use this and they will work with it, so I’m pretty sure it will work with the other 3rd party application that use the classes. Babble has some API elements to it that will be document on my site later, so any application it doesn’t support, the application developer should be able to create a hook without much of a problem. (1) There are special variables that the count bot and phrase bot have access to, that can be used in the message, to show the name of the person who triggered, the bot’s name, and the match (this is for the phrase bot only). Bots can use commands, if it the command requires a the members name, use the special variable #member# Commands: Commands can perform special functions when issued. The commands can be issued thru the chat area (similar to how IRC does it). Some commands have group restrictions. You can add commands in 2 ways, in the ACP you can add basic commands , if you need more advanced functionality you can create a “command” file. Commands have been expanded greatly in 2.1, you can now "alias" them and the phrase/count bot can now use commands (the time bot can as well, but it wont have access to the #member# special variable). Command list: Announce – adds or removes an announcement to the room Ban – bans a user for a room. Unban – unbans a user for a room. BanList – Show’s who has been banned from a room. Ignore – Ignore a user in a room. Unignore – Stop ignored a user in a room. Kick – kick a user from a room. Me – an action command for a room. Mute – Mutes a member for everyone in a room. Unmute – unmutes the member in a room. Mutelist – shows a list of users who have been muted. Notifications – disables or enables notifications from the notification bot. Topic – adds or removes a chat topic from a room. Rules - Show the rules for a room if they have them. Password - sets a password for a room Purge - deletes all the existing messages in a room Stats - displays a rooms stats if enabled Rand - display a random GIF from giphy.com and many more!

    IPS is always auditing our software to improve security at the code-level but these improvements are not really visible to you even though they protect your site all the time. We are implementing some new features that you can use to enhance the security and privacy of your site. Many of these features depend on your personal preferences, local laws, or the policies of your own organization. Here is a list of what's new: Birthday Control You may wish to make birthday viewing only show to admins or you can completely disable prompting for a birthday if you consider that information sensitive. Member Delete Name Retention When deleting a member in the AdminCP, if you choose to keep their posts the system currently names the posts with a display name of "Guest user" where user is the previous display name of the member you deleted. You can how choose to retain their name in posts or not so you can either have it as it is now or simple "Guest" on member delete. Password Strength Password Strength You now have two new options for password: show a strength meter and require strong passwords. You can choose to either just show the meter as a suggestion or you can also choose to enforce a password strength. You can choose between three levels of password enforcement parameters depending on how strict you choose to be. Guest Terms Banner Guest Terms Banner There is a new option to show a guest terms of service banner when a new visitor first visits your site. You can set the text shown in the display and you can also put in two special tags to automatically link to your Terms of Service or Privacy Policy page. Age Restrictions Age Prompt We have always had COPPA support in the Suite but we have extended this to be a more generic age restriction feature. You can now set your site to reject registrations from anyone under a certain age you specify. For privacy, the birthday entered on registration is only used to calculate permission and is never stored. This change will be in version 4.1.17 which is scheduled to be released in early December 2016.

    I'm not a theme designer, just a customer that created a dark theme for my own site and was never intended to be released to the public, but due to interest within the community I have uploaded this theme on to the marketplace....for free. The theme contains zero template edits, only CSS changes which can be found in the custom.css file. Fully compatible with all IPS apps!

    Congratulations

    May I please congratulate Invision Power Services on their kindness in helping me with my board, as a registered blind person IPB 4.1 is an absolute godsend to me, nice to work with, and the staff and help are brilliant. You have made the suite that I can now use myself, or its very easy now to get help, and members really want to help. Its nice to still be able to do things myself and 4.1 allows me to do that, for how long I dont know, but for now I can and its a joy at last. Once again congratulations and thank you. Gerry & Calvin (my Guidedog)

    Happy 4.1 users

    My 3.4 to 4.1 upgrade wasn’t a walk in the park. It took me weeks to test everything, solve problems, redo all my IP.Content templates and so on. But now the new site is online and I switched from shared hosting to a managed server at the same time. The site is now running better then ever and despite the expected “getting used to new and changed features” complaints, the users really love it. One just wrote and many agreed: This is the most user-friendly and modern forum that I know! It’s really fun! I just wanted to pass this on to IPS, since while directed at me, that quote reflects IPS’ achievements, not mine.

    New Embed Options

    We have updated a few of our embed options in version 4.1.9. Our goal was to make the embeds more user friendly and give admins more control over embed in general. When you paste in a link from common services like YouTube, Twitter, and so on the system tries to embed a nice box instead of just a link. For example, if I pasted in this link: https://twitter.com/invisionps/status/708019275521363968 It would create this box: New in version 4.1.9 you can now optionally choose to revert the automatic embed back to a simple text link. So in the above example, when I pasted in my Twitter link, I saw a bar come up giving me the option to revert back to a link. This is useful when you do not want a formatted embed box but instead simply want to reference something and get the visitor to click the link. It is also useful when you want to reference something as part of a single sentence and not have a break in the flow that an embedded content box creates. There is also a new AdminCP setting to completely disable embeds across your entire Suite. Some clients have communities where they like to keep things down to just simple, plain text. You could always disable formatting option button in the editor and now you can also disable automated embeds. As a reminder, the following formats are supported with our embed system. Simply paste a link to any of these services and you will get a nice, rich embed experience that really encourages engagement on your community. College Humor Facebook Flickr Gfycat Google+ Hulu Instagram SoundCloud Spotify Ted Twitter Vimeo Vine YouTube You can also embed links to anything inside of the IPS Community Suite. So you could paste a link to another forum topic in the comment on a Gallery image and it will show a preview of that topic rather than a simple link. We are always open to suggestions so feel free to post in our feedback forum. Thank you!

    -=[ IPS4 Chill Pill ]=-

    -=[ Chill Pill ]=- Some of us (including myself) purchased a license to be able to test IPS4. We all downloaded well within the knowledge that we were testing BETA software and accepted that as part of our decision. A few people seem to be getting a little heated in some of the threads here and in the bug reports about downloading a new version and being hit by bugs. Yes it's frustrating, yes it's annoying, however it's a problem that we all volunteered for. So if you find yourself getting a little heated under the collar then step back, relax, come back in a week and play with the RC versions instead which will be supported. Life's short, weekends are shorter, step out and enjoy it.

    When is IPB 4.0 ?

    IPB 4.0 | Anti-Something...

    Anti "something" ... I mean honestly. You posted a topic to literally be against "something" just because. You cannot even be sure what "that" is as this point because you have not seen it with your own eyes. As has been pointed out sevearl tiems in this topic, a screenshot does not give you any sort of feel for how the software operates. And, yes, we are WAY more concerned with how the software operates (user experience, performance, ease of use, etc.) than how it looks. Why is that? Because every single client in the history of ever makes their very first task after installation to be changing how it looks. So, yes, we make a very generic look that flows well and is easy for users to understand. We do this on purpose so our clients can easily change it to suit their personal design styles. No: we are not going to force pretty icons, gradients, RSS buttons everywhere, and a million ways to like a post at you. That's so last year. I am going to lock what I believe is a topic that serves zero purpose than to be negative for the sake of being negative. You all know the slang term for that. Obviously some will cry censorship but no we welcome constructive feedback but we do prefer it has a direct purpose and focus :) ... and we also generally prefer you actually use what you're giving feedback on first ;)
