  1. It's a first step, though I'd wish to see more important features like automatic unsubscription of bounce emails. Bounce email handling would be really helpful, for those who don't use commercial email providers. The plugins in the marketplace can't handle them efficiently, either they are only made for paid providers or you have to manually add email addresses to a list (...my list contains more than 100.000 subscribers)
  2. Hide sub-levels (f.e. all third level subforums or specified subforums that shall not be shown) in fluid view navigation. My navigation forums list currently contains 150 forums -> and hence makes the current fluid view implementation unusable.
  3. I'd like to ask if it could be possible to change the "Description Text" field type to a full text area field with formatting options. This way, we could place some additional links in there, f.e. to other forms or to the privacy terms. Thanks.
  4. All members of selected groups. This would be really great. I have no mail limits 😉
  5. I'd like to suggest a new feature: If an (allowed) member has a birthday "today", then send an email to all members of allowed groups. It will be an inspirational reminder! Cheers.
  6. Hi, I'm interested in this plugin. I have a huge member database that has grown for more than a century. What I want to realize is, that I can automatically "unsubscribe" inactive members from "bulk mail" if they haven't visited for x days ( so they will even be triggered by a task without having to perform any online action ). Nowadays, email marketing has to be handled with high care, also because of the GDPR, and there is no known option so far in the IPS universe, that can unsubscribe inactive members automatically and on a regular basis, and still keep these members in their original member group. Could this be a good suggestion / a function of interest for a future version of your app/plugin maybe? Thanks.

    Hi, here are some suggestions for enhancements to the app: Show opt-ins for each newsletter in the ACP. -> Let administrators see how many and who is currently subscribed to an individual newsletter -> show the current sendout counts (how many emails have been sent?) and maybe a monthly history Implement additional sendout member filters / more filter options -> currently we can only filter for member groups (who will receive, who may opt-in....) -> requested is a functionality, where I can filter regular member groups AND ON TOP OF THIS -> # joined the community more than/equal/less than x days ago ("registration filter") # last visit newer than/equal/older than x days ("inactivity filter") # has reputation count higher than/equal/lower than ("quality filter") # custom member profile field value is/is not xxx ("custom filter") Upcoming birthdays / birthday list -> show the x upcoming birthdays or all in a day/week/month/year -> use the data from the member profile (birthday field) Problems I am experiencing with the current version: The html previews don't look like the final versions -> line height and paragraphs are not honored correctly Test distribution doesn't convert the newsletter fields like "unsubscribe link" and others The time format of my topics, files, images in the newsletter is corrupt -> in my live community all time formats in topics, blog entries… are shown correctly and translated (foreign language set as community default) -> in the newsletter they are in english and not translated unfortunately (maybe due to different languages being turned on?) -> in the newsletter the entries show time with timezones, but I only use 1 timezone, where I live, it's confusing Images don't resize according to the device display size/dimensions -> I'm using the default template code, and if I import downloads files with their images to the newsletter, the images shown in the distributed newsletter extend the device size -> results: either images are moving out of sight on the right edge of the device OR images are shown correctly and the newsletter text becomes so small that I almost can't read it anymore (so I have to zoom in again) Best regards
  8. Please report to us if you get any news. I have a big problem with emails to Microsoft domains (outlook.com / hotmail.com) and I never found out what the reason is. I don't even know who to ask about this. Every other email provider like googlemail works absolutely fine for me. I'm not listed on any blacklist either. And my admin confirms, my email setup is absolutely fine and no complications resulting from this side. And I'm not talking about bulk mailing only. Not even a single registration email is arriving on Microsoft domains. I never misused any data nor did I unconventional using. Absolutely weird.
  9. Good idea. I think the "member inactivity" (=last visit or real last visit) should get more attention f.e. only award reaction points if member's last visit isn't older than x days only award response posts points if member's last visit isn't older than x days only award weekly/monthly/yearly points if…. only award bank interest if ... There are many cases where it would make sense, if we could exclude inactive members from receiving points, if they are offline for a longer time. If my members would know, that they won't receive anymore points after day x, they would login more often and it would drive up the community engagement. Similar to the "inactivity rule" it would also be great to do the same with f.e. "bulk email opt-ins", so we as admins can choose to not award members, that are currently not subscribed for bulk email. That would help the email marketing a lot.
  10. Some concerns I'd like to remind for consideration for the announced upcoming big update please: Promote item to promote to secondary member groups It would be really great, if you could consider the "promote member group" item could promote to secondary member groups. My regular subscriptions promote members into secondary premium groups, so the item, that can be purchased by points, should also follow this functionality or it'll probably create a lot of chaos if primary and secondary group promotions get mixed up 😉 Points for (1) reaction giver and (2) points value differentiation between "reaction areas" Monthly points if subscribed (opted-in) for bulk email This would really make sense, to drive and push the opt-ins into our newsletter Points depreciation after inactivity time x As an optional setting # reduce points by x% per week/month/year if longer inactive than x days I don't want to create trouble with bringing up old suggestions, but I kindly ask for consideration as they are important for my app usage. Thanks you.
  11. It's a good idea to restrict the link parser somehow, so it won't generate unlimited links. This should be configurable. Why? Google shouldn't crawl my pages and detect a linking overdose. An option would be useful to restrict links per post, links per author, and links per page. If you have too many keywords linked, and many keywords are used by the poster, this sometimes results in in a huge amount of links per page. It would be nice to see the custom link CATEGORIES come back, to better organize links if you really have a lot of them. In my case for example, I'd like to have 20 categories (for the thematic and synonyms), and each keyword/keyphrase is linking to the same link
  12. No, unfortunately not but highly requested. Not sure if there was a small plugin or a code workaround to switch the "About me" and "Activity" positions? We've been talking about this in another topic already... For my community, it would make sense to offer "commercial users" the "About me" page at first profile call, so they can at least present themselves as a commercial vendor, instead of showing their reactions… Finally, the members profile requires a total makeover, as there are many uncomfortable default views and - for commercial vendors - there's a high requirement for a complete member shop by letting them show their introduction text, their products, their own advertisement banners, discount deals, customizable widgets and more. Just found the discussion:
  13. Hi, I registered for your FlySpray Bug & Suggestions System in September, but I still have no access, so I guess I haven't been manually approved. The registered name is the same as here in the community. What is wrong? Without access, I can't report bugs and suggestions, there. Thanks for granting access hopefully soon.
  14. This request is very old 😉 If you've read the latest IPS blog entry about "4.4 app manifest & icon management", they talk about "if you upload png files, size them 2x for retina display optimization" (as svg not natively supported). But it isn't even possible to upload a png image in double size (which should show only in half the dimensions) IPS, please implement this improvement also for member group icons, for the sake of a consistent sharp and crispy retina frontend look. Thanks.
  15. My score is 4,9 / 5 I only forgot about the image alignments (that they don't stick to their own rows/lines and are positioned as fluid beside text) and I just wanted to code an own editor button for this as I've done during BBcode times before 👍 Now I can remember. 💥
  16. Hi, I'm interested in this app, just to know how many emails are actually going out every day, and in which cases emails are sent mostly. Though I have some other questions / suggestions for it: Will this app work with other apps, f.e. "mail bouncer" or other email modifications, that will "ban emails", that can't be delivered for any reason? Or will "delayed emails" by your app lead to an "address ban" initiated by other apps? What happens if emails are restricted from being sent (due to too many emails in the queue), but there won't be any capacity later on to send them, as too many prioritized emails are waiting to be sent? Will the lower prioritized emails be deleted at any point of time? I'm asking as I don't want my members to receive low prioritized emails 1 month later for example. There should be a cut-off date. Is there any notification if emails won't be sent for a long time or never? For the member himself? For the admin? For my purposes, I'd like to split the sending of emails to different email providers. F.e. I'd like to send registration/password recovery emails via a paid service to go for sure that they will be delivered, BUT other notification emails should be sent via my own server (php email). This isn't possible with IPS. Is this something that might benefit your app in a future version? Or would this be better for an independent app? ^^no. 4 is one of the solutions I'm looking for for a long time. I want to use "free emails" from paid providers to sent the most important emails, but avoid other costs for follower notifications aso. Thanks for a short response.
  17. I had a similar request before around a year ago in this topic. Every communication channel should be individually selectable. Telephone as well as email. I don't want to allow/show both. In some cases this might be a GDPR violation, especially if adverters want to deny their personal informations at a later time or if they entered them by mistake (not knowing that it could be used publicly). Or if they NEVER want to be informed/contacted via email. Classifieds should honor communities with anonymous members and only allow exceptions if: the seller consciously accepts this. It should only show/offer telephone AND email contacting functions if the seller accepts this the allowed informations should ONLY be shown to purchasers after the sale is flagged as "sold", and no other member should ever be able to contact a member in any other way than PM after the sale is completed, these personal informations should totally disappear, for all members, and not be available anymore forever It's a common problem, that interested members will ask the seller to close deals out of range of the community admin to avoid additional costs/fees. We as community admins lose control about the classifieds. And it might be a big violation with GDPR... edit: just saw Adriano replied with a great solution for the "other" field. Thanks. This should be implemented by @InvisionHQ in the app directly, for "other" as well as for "email". Thanks.
  18. I'm also using cron. Birthday greeter is set to send PMs and Emails only (but it never did trustworthy during the last months). In the ACP, the birthday greeter task is shown as locked in the dashboard continuously (and I still have the problems with duplicate PMs (or even 3 in 1-hour intervals), sometimes no PMs at all...) Another bug I detected: In Birthday Greeter, General Settings, Date Format -> if I activate the checkbox "use default" and save, it saves, but as soon as I come back, the checkbox is unflagged again.
  19. Support Requests !!! Notifications about open/new/unopened/due requests should be displayed in the ACP notifications AND in the frontend notifications please. Maybe itt would make sense to make ACP notifications configurable, what ACP notifications can also be displayed on the frontend. And have a secondary notification icon in the frontend header showing the counter 😉
  20. Maybe name the current "Content" tab -> "All Contents" or "Expose individual areas" Move your ^^ description to the tab top for quick explanation as it's too important to miss this information I've really been searching for this advice too. Some members probably never switch/uncheck the "Content" tab settings, or they forget about them. Features that "expose areas" should be somehow highlighted or be placed for prioritized display (on a higher level). Only my thoughts and a suggestion… 😉
