4.5: Two feature additions

As the deadline slowly comes down, two last feature additions race towards the descending door and slide in underneath with seconds to spare. 

If you've never seen "Raiders of the Lost Ark", then you probably think this is a weird way to start a blog.

As we wrap up development for Invision Community 4.5, we squeezed in two extra features that I want to talk about today.

Per Topic Post Approval
The first is a way to cool down a heated topic without locking it. Right now you can put an entire forum on post-approval. This means that moderators must review and approve all new posts before they are allowed to be publicly displayed.

As of Invision Community 4.5, you can now choose to set a single topic to post-approval regardless of the forum setting.

This is a great way to let a topic cool off but still receive new replies to review before adding to the topic.

Club Terms and Conditions
The ways that clubs are used throughout the many communities that run Invision Community are becoming increasingly varied.

A popular request is to allow members to agree to a set of club-specific terms and conditions before they can contribute to the club.

Invision Community 4.5 now allows the club owner to set up its own terms and conditions. You can optionally enforce that members agree to them before continuing.

That's it for feature announcements. We're excited to be closing development on Invision Community 4.5 and move towards a beta in the coming weeks.

This was implemented as a MetaData extension, meaning that you can utilise the feature in any of your apps 🙂

Can we have this for blog comments as well

I wanted members to answer the question... but also wanted that they cannot read the answer posted by others....

Even I can ask for puzzle and let every one answer and later we can open it for the result.....

I can implement my concept now.

Thank you

Will you be bringing forum jump back in 4.5?

Thats not been here since 3.1, I moaned about it being removed no end I was in the habit of always using it at the bottom of topics. I'm not sure I'd use it now if it was there as I tend to just use the Unread Content link

Happy 🙏one side because 4.5 come here soon, sadly 😞 because we are living in an age of e-commerce, but nothing improves and exciting features (specially members stores inside the community concept) of Commerce included.

It would be great if it was an option to use or not. It's tireless going through each and every forum otherwise.
