  1. Looks good. How will it look on mobile?
  2. He simply means automatic renewals only happen when the user saves their card, and as it's an optional field a lot of members don't save their card and are therefore required to manually renew. He would like the option to force people to save their card to increase the number of automatic renewals. Similar to how you can force anyone who purchases a subscription through PayPal to create a billing agreement. I think he's right in a way that for items that renew, the saving of a card could be forced initially, and the customer can remove or change the card manually in the client area later if they choose. A lot of companies do use this approach when selling plans/subscriptions/memberships.
  3. Broken for me on Chrome on Windows 10 desktop. Image link: https://invisioncommunity.com/site_assets//images/solutions/fanexamples_small@2x.jpg

  5. Thanks for posting. Although looking at Stripe they have pretty bad reviews too and I've never had an issue with them. It seems the only people who go to these review sites are ones that have had a bad experience so they can vent frustration.
  6. Are there any noticeable differences between using Stripe and Braintree to accept and store card payments?
  7. It would be nice if the "show prices" widget appeared (or had the option of appearing) on the product view page in the store. Because a lot of the time people land on the product view directly and don't go through the categories; therefore, do not get a chance to select their currency.
  8. Yes, from a customer's point of view that would look very strange too.
  9. Agreed. It almost needs to be that desktop and mobile use two different themes, different JavaScript, etc. A good example is the release notes page: Works pretty well on desktop but is awful on mobile, because it was built using this widely used responsive design tactic of just collapsing everything on top of each other.
  10. Or if you're willing to put in the work, you can download the icons you need as an svg file and host them locally. Added bonus is that's one less external call your site has to make.
  11. I wonder what happened. Would be nice if they could bring back some kind of programme.
  12. Translations should not come from the marketplace. The people that are posting free packages are hurting the production of translations. It might seem like a nice thing to do, but anyone that would be willing to create a translation and sell it cannot in fear of someone undercutting them in the future. Just as an example, I had the idea of investing in creating a french translation of IPS for my community, which would be damn expensive, and then selling that translation here to make back some of the cost. But no way will I do that with the possibility of a week later someone releasing a free version. An alternative could be to sell them as an addon with a fixed price by IPS when people buy their product, and can be clearly promoted on IPS's website as a feature. IPS could do it themselves or offer a kind of partnership programme where translators can provide them with the translations and get a commission based on the sale of the translation addons. Ideas off the top of my head: These translators would get early access to new string sets before new releases so that translations are available from day 1. There is a greater incentive here for translators as the returns will be much higher and secure as they don't have to worry about people offering translations for free in the marketplace. If a translator is unreliable they can be removed leaving space for a new translator to come in. Users can leave ratings on the quality of the translations I'm sure there are problems with this idea, but I guess my main point is that the current eco system does not work well and a new one should be considered.
  13. The amount of translation options here are really lacking. https://invisioncommunity.com/files/category/161-translations/ There is no French, Chinese or Hindi for example. These are major languages, and should really be offered. For example MyBB have a much more exhaustive list: https://community.mybb.com/mods.php?action=browse&category=19 I understand that it's a community driven thing, however I think IPS should try and create more of an incentive for people to create and support translations. Surely, this would open the product up to more markets...
