Invision Community Blog


Managing successful online communities


Free Bug Extermination

One of our major goals is to support our modification community and today I'm excited to tell you about a new venture to help the mod community. As many of you know we have our own internal bug tracker that we use on these forums. We've had numerous requests to release it and now we're ready to do just that, at no charge to our existing customers. The bug tracker will soon be released to IPS Beyond for everyone to download.

This is going to be a unique project for us, we're going to have the IPS Beyond community run the bug tracker project. We'll be selecting a few IPS Beyond members to help us manage this project, they'll be responsible for reviewing and integrating community code contributions. Everyone will be welcome to submit a code contribution for approval.

We're really excited about this project and hope that all of you are too. There will be more details coming soon, such as license, availablity, and who will be heading up this project. We're still considering people for this, if you're intersted feel free to email me at josh@invisionpower.com, please include both your IPS Forum user name and your IPS Beyond user name. Please note that I may not be able to respond to everyone, but we do appreceiate anyone that offers their assistance.

This is just the first in a string of changes to both IPS Beyond and IP.Board that we hope will further energize our already great modding community. Keep checking this blog for news on future changes, they aren't far off. We'd also love to hear your feedback on this and any suggestions you have, please leave a comment and let us know what you think!

Thank Heavens, this I think is one of the best things that IPS has done and will distinguish you from other forum companies since you take users suggestions and appeal to the community as a whole. ^_^

That's excellent news!

I need a simple bug tracker for people to report bugs about my products, but was always wary of using the mod which offered this functionality due to worries about security. Now, IPS will release their official bug tracker I am much more confident adding it to my site :)

@Metalfrog, that's just cuz we were too lazy to remove them. :whistle: Templates have really always been there lol.

Same as the files. They're actually in the IP.Board subversion repository, but our build scripts remove them when making the download package.

I started to compile a list of obsolete templates at one point and got discouraged a few minutes later. :P
