3 Improvements to Spam Management in 4.6
Spam is as much a part of life on the internet as emoji overuse, serial GIF abuse and regretful tweeting.

But I'm not here to talk about how I conduct myself online; I wanted to talk about three spam improvements coming to Invision Community 4.6.

A Kindness plugin has arrived!
Invision Community third-party developer Nathan Explosion developed a kindness plugin available free of charge.

Drum roll please… announcing Achievements!
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!

Take Your Community to the Next Level With Content Curation
In the past, I focused my efforts on writing news articles (in Wordpress) while my Invision Community community ran rampant. I felt my presence needed to take center stage. That cast a shadow on my community and thus my members. I unintentionally muted their voices by exclusively promoting mine.

Facebook & Instagram embeds fixed! (upcoming update)
Hey guys, as I'm sure you're quite aware, Facebook made some changes recently that affected their embeds (along with Instagram) from showing up in Invision communities. 

There was a plugin created for the time-being (🙏), but I wanted to share with you that we developed a fix and will release it in an update in the near future!

Have you missed this feature? Or did it not really matter in your community? Would love to hear from you in the comments.

Pages app – what would you like to learn?
I am planning to run live webinars and online courses about using Invision Community and Pages in particular. Apart from a walk-through which would cover all the parts (pages, databases, blocks, templates), are there any particular things you struggle with or want to learn regarding the Pages app?

The Importance of Moderation, err... Community Guidance (New Video!)
Guidance is an essential component to any thriving community because it creates structure and boundaries for the community.

Oftentimes, people think community guidance is about restriction, but in reality it allows your community to express itself in a healthy way.

All communities run into issues unless there are clear guidelines laid out for all members. It only takes a couple of toxic trolls to bring down an entire community of thousands of members.

As a community leader, it's important to find the balance between allowing freedom of speech and restricting what people can and can't say.

Invision Community has an exciting opportunity for an experienced PHP developer to join our team!

As a back end PHP developer, you will be working closely within a tight nimble team. You are a clear thinking problem solver and are able to demonstrate skills in creativity and innovation with the ability to meet deadlines. You thrive when given a brief and create well structured efficient code.

Help me, Invision Community. You're my only hope: from administrator to community leader
Shifting your interpersonal narrative from administrator to community leader can profoundly change your community’s culture for the better.

As a community leader, you’ll inevitably perform administrative tasks, including the nitty gritty like group promotions, moderating and reputation (all critical functions for a high-functioning community). However, it’s possible to execute said functions while cloaked under anonymity that the administrator title can provide (that’s not necessarily good or bad, it just is). An important component to community leading is visibility.

Web push notifications, native sharing & offline support

Updates to our community
You’ve probably already noticed that something looks a little different in our community today.

As part of our ongoing community improvements, we’ve performed some housekeeping to streamline the forum structure, make more distinction between areas and open up a few areas to guests and friends.

The big visual change is that we now have four separate areas: support, community, marketplace and developers. It should hopefully be clear what each section does, but let's go through a few examples.
