  1. One of the overarching goals for any community leader is to shine a bright light on your members. Their contributions should be publicly recognized. Now with Invision Community’s new Achievements system... you can! Achievements is Invision Community’s native gamification system baked into our latest update, 4.6. We’ve dreamed up innovative actions for community leaders to publicly recognize members who show up and participate in meaningful ways. Award Points and badges based on conditional Rules! Here’s what you need to know... Points Our Achievements Points system keeps a running tally of Points. Members may earn Points in a multitude of ways. Essentially, it’s achieved by participating in the community. Create a topic? Points! Post a reply? Points! Follow another member? Nothing. Just kidding… Points!!! This is done through creating Rules. Rules Rules are actionable processes set up in the admin panel. Here are what members can earn Points for: When a... Member joins a club Reaction is given New poll is created User follows a content item Review is posted Member logs in for the first time that day New club is created Content item/comment is promoted or featured Comment/reply is posted User follows a forum, blog, gallery, category etc User votes on a poll User is followed New content item is posted Post is marked as best answer There are also corresponding When/Then Rules for each item listed above. When this action happens, then this subsequent action happens. Example: when a member posts 10 times, then this Badge is awarded. Badges Community leaders can also create specific Rules when deciding what actions earn Badges. For example, reward your members with a Badge for visiting your community for 20 days. Once a member reaches 20 visits or more over 20 days, the Achievements system will automatically award them a ‘20 Visits’ Badge you’ve previously created. Ranks In 4.6, we’ve completely revamped our Ranks system to communicate with Achievements. Achievements’ Ranks system will replace our previous Ranks system* Set up different Ranks based on how many Points a member earns. Ranks display a members’ perceived value to the community. The higher a members’ Rank, the greater their influence because the more they’ve participated. Ranks are currently for prestige at the moment. Here's our example for a pretend Coconut community: There’s a lot of information to absorb here, but if there’s anything to take away from this blog post it’s this: empower your contributing members with Achievements and watch your community grow. It creates an immersive and elevated experience for your die-hards. And hey, who doesn’t love to earn? When 4.6 and Achievements is officially released for all, we’ll hold a live Q&A event for you to join and ask any questions you may have. Props? Concerns? Comments? Questions? We’d love for you to sound off in the comments! Not only because we want to hear from you, but because it’ll earn you some sweet, sweet Points, too!

  2. Few months have passed since our last post here, so let's get ready to rumble🙂 Supported PHP & MySQL Versions: The PHP min version was increased to PHP 7.2 in IPS 4.6, this means that your marketplace submissions are required to work with this version, but keep in mind that few clients are going to use php8, so I would really suggest to try to get your code working with both versions, which means that you'll need to implement some changes to avoid some BC breaks in PHP8. Here's a great list https://www.php.net/manual/en/migration80.incompatible.php Security Improvements: I have mentioned this change in another topic today, so let's recap it here too:) We have a new IN_DEV code check similar to the slash check, which will inform you about any outputs containing the CSRF key in the URL. This is a bad practice allowing attackers and 3rd parties to obtain the users CSRF key, so please try avoid this at any cost! We're not going to reject MP submissions because of this, but please try to avoid this as much as much as possible. Withdrawal Requests: Please keep in mind that you're permitted to have only one payout request per week;) Since this didn't work out that great and to avoid any drama about canceled requests, this is going to be handled now automatically. As long as there's an open request, you won't be able to submit any new requests! But don't worry, you'll still be able to cancel it and create a new request!

    Multiple owners/authors

    I’ve complained before that wiki editing shouldn’t have an original author, or owner, at all. While the authors/editors should be in the editing history the listing itself should never truly have a single author. It should be possible, especially in pages, to set multiple owners. You see this behavior on major websites such as Microsoft where the people that have contributed/have ownership of the listing are listed as “contributors”. I would like to empower my users to allow secondary editors to some of the contributions so those people also have the ability to edit their content. Sort of like adding a moderator to a forum, do it at the listing level in pages.

  5. This site has been running 4.6 Alpha for only a few days now. Based on previous 4.x releases, it will take several beta releases before IPS makes it available for download in your client area. Once it's available there, it will take several 4.6.x releases before its "really" considered stable and the marketplace developers begin releasing updates to their products. If your site doesn't use marketplace apps a stable 4.6 will likely be available 2 to 3 months from now. If you are dependent on marketplace apps it could be many months before they get updated especially if the developer has lots of apps to update. There are a fair amount of apps that haven't yet been updated to 4.5 so it seems that updating isn't as easy to accomplish as it would seem. This timeline is based on IPS keeping Achievements "as is". If they should decide to take customer feedback into consideration and include their various suggestions to change, add or delete functionality then the timeline could be extended much further. Time will tell...

  6. Hi, Why was the "last visited" field removed from User Hovercard? It was a very useful option here. It does not significantly extend the block: I see this report: but I don't think this is bug.

  7. Hi, here is a feature request. For personal sticky notes – how about having a "read" receipt? That will be very handy for administrators who are trying to contact individuals but without going back to the admin CP, it's not possible to see whether or not the sticky has been read. A little read receipt would be very helpful

  10. Hey team, I was thinking this could be a cool feature and wanted to hear your thoughts: On Twitter and some other social media accounts, often times they guide you to "follow" a few niche topics upon signing up. This way your timeline is populated with some content you might like right from the get. It could be cool to implement either a page or something similar upon registering to a community. I think our Activity Stream feature is incredible, and I want more people to begin using it on the regular (versus my community's homepage which is curated news content that is the same for all - I'd love if each member had a homepage that was specific to them!). My thought is if they are forced to follow some suggested tags / forums / members to follow, they'd begin getting used to the Activity Stream right away and it'd create a more tailored visiting experience. Also curious to hear if others have seen success with Activity Streams in their community. Love to hear some feedback! Happy 420 😜

  11. I removed the option to set the order in block, as they doesn't make sense in events, and they're ordered now by the event date, just like the Upcoming Events widget. New version will also have a Guest Block, so you can add a message. It will also display the Sign In and Sign Up buttons on it.

  12. I love this suggestion. I have found many instances when featuring a member's topic, I will add some additional information to their post, which looks like the OP wrote it. I want to clarify to people that there are now two authors, at least a contributing author, so no one's words are minced.

  15. I was thinking how and where do I store member's badge for my still in progress poker game, I guess I know now! So many possibilities to award member with badge earned to show off advancement by designing game rules to obtain them besides getting the ones from forum legacy. My work in progress of achievement in pic shows earning a nice Third of a Kind badge, I can't wait to call REST API to persist achievements! Kudos to the team to make this happen.

    Again, I don't think this is a feature that needs to be added to forums. This is a feature that needs to be added to pages. Pages has its own thing and I think that Topics need to be unique to the users and SHOULD NOT be shared by multiple people. Pages articles/records, on the other hand, should have this capability especially on large sites where you want content submitters but not necessarily a million moderators. Its like "group blog" adjacent but at the article/record level of pages where you can add those that are permitted to make changes to the article that are non-staff members. So: I own an article but I need you @Jordan Invision to be able to edit the article because you're a person that knows about the subject/article/company/listing/thing that the article is about. I add you as "additional editors" or whatever you want to call it. Now, even though you're not a mod/admin you have the "can edit" functionality on my article, you can click edit and make changes as needed but I still own the article. Then, lets say you are no longer the business on this article and or no longer interested in updating it. I can remove you and add someone else to edit said article. That mod only works if you are also using the "account switcher" mod and you allow people to create accounts that multiple people can log into. Which is technically the only solution for what I'm asking for at the moment but the account security there makes me cringe.

  18. You can easily create a robots.txt files with wildcards: Check the section: "How to Use wildcards in robots.txt" here: An SEO's Guide to Robots.txt, Wildcards, the X-Robots-Tag and Noindex (builtvisible.com) for example. To prevent the report URL or other sections being indexed we use this e.g.: Disallow: /*?do=reportComment* Disallow: /*?do=add As the robots.txt file is very site and version specific and there are other methods, see article mentioned above, I think every site owner has to create his own robots.txt file or "no index" mechanism.

  19. You could use the live meta tag editor to add robot instructions to the pages which you don't want to have indexed. That said, we made also several improvements in IPS 4.6 to remove the CSRF key from URLs

  20. The hostname of the link you posted contains an underscore. Underscores are not supposed to be used in hostnames and violate the RFCs for valid hostnames. My guess would be that CKEditor is doing something with this link. Posting it here as a test. Test link

  22. What's New in Version 1.1.2: Removes the option to choose the order events will be displayed in Calendar Events block. They will be ordered by date event, just like Upcoming Events widget. Adds a new block: Guest Block. You can add a multi language message. It will also display the Sign In and Sign Up buttons.

  31. What's New in Version 2.0.8: Enhancements: New setting: added ability to choose which apps and their content (main item, comment and reviews) to give/remove points when you react/unreact to the content. Rework in some templates Fix: Fix error (entry generated in System Logs) when posting replies to topics (although the post was saved) Fix: points given/removed only when reaction to posts. Converted several hard coded strings into language bits

  34. Yes, can we please get an option to configure the default selection? The current behaviour is so annoying. Every single time I have to change "Everywhere" to a specific forum or other section I'm currently in. I do that in every IPS based forum including here and I get just exhausted.

  39. Yes, the badges you see here will be included by default in Invision Community 4.6. There are many pages in the ACP. On the front end, viewing a member's profile shows you which badges they've earned. I'm not sure if we are going to do a "here's all the possible badges you can earn". I'm not sure of its value. We don't want to turn the community into a game. It's designed to reward good contributions and not encourage pure engagement for engagements sake to win points and badges. Yes, it does work across all apps. The profile link is also in this screenshot 😄 Not yet, but we already have this down as a future expansion idea. You can rebuild points and ranks at any time including post upgrade. It's what we did here. We had 21 million data points to look at, and it took about 5-6 hours. Reputation and points are still separate. One thing to keep in mind is that we don't want to turn a community into a game. An early rule I put in place was that we were not going to show point logic and show people how to specifically earn points, and which actions earned the most points because that will start to erode the purpose and people may decide, if you said that you earn 5 points for a post and 10 points for a gallery image, to reduce posting and start uploading random pictures just to earn points and rank up. We do not want this. The achievements system is meant to be a reward for great contributions, and not the purpose of the community. To this end, we will not be showing how you can earn points, and the rank thresholds. We do have on our list a way to give you a weekly update about how many points you earned, so you may get an email with "You earned 205 points last week, that's 20 more than the week before" for example to keep you updated on your progress. You can opt in to notifications to get a push notification / inline notification / email when you rank up or earn a new badge. You are seeing the entire system from the perspective of a user. There is a "recognise" system that allows you to manually award points and/or badges for content. Yes you can manually give points and/or badges. Yes, you can add a "location" "and" clause to specify just forums, or whatever app and set up points per thing differently.

  41. Hi, I have a few suggestions for Pages App that I miss a lot after switching from Wordpress. The application itself works great and is very flexible, but it still lacks a lot of options, which I will try to describe below. First of all option which I miss on start is a Poll/Vote option, because I cannot add a poll with voting in any way to article, which is available only in the forum application. It would be great to see possibility to adding a poll into our articles. Tables - it is not possible to insert tables with a certain number of columns and rows. This option isn't available in any of the apps, but it would be nice to see one in Pages. For example, I am adding a table with 3 columns and 5 rows, e.g. for movies. The columns contain information such as the name of the film, Production Year and Genre, which can be sorted in ascending or descending order, while in the rows we complete the data related to the columns. Author Box - as simply as the name suggests, adding the option to insert a small window about the author of the content and a short description of it, which would be added as a widget from the side panel in any selected place, e.g. under the content of an article in Pages. These are all my suggestions so far, I hope one of them will be in a newer version of Pages.

  44. There are various options to keep the DB small, in the context of server optimization using Redis for caching instead of MySQL and Elasticsearch instead of a MySQL search index helps. So if you don't use the caching method MySQL and for example not the MySQL search index, both keeps your database smaller.

  45. Hello @Karina Harumi To have a clickable image: Upload the image of your choice, then insert the photo in your post (you can do that but clicking on your attachment, which will add it into the post). Highlight your image the same way you would highlight text in the editor. While your photo is highlighted, click on the link icon in the editor, and add the URL of your choice. At the end of your URL, add the following, which will ensure that a new tab window will always be used /"target="_blank
