  1. This will be a welcome addition and can I can see also the potential for other uses.
  2. @Ehren H congrats on joining the IPS Team :) The redesign looks nice but I'll +1 to the dark side fans too 😉
  3. My community uses it a lot. @Alismora's solution is a good way to enhance your community with Discord but it wouldn't work for us (people are lazy and they'd just go to the competition who "doesn't make using discord a hassle"). I use the option of notifications when something (anything really) is posted on the community so the people know and can take a look but out community is the type that got lazy... And took most of the discussions to discord despite staff animating and trying to redirect the traffic. This might be caused by the life-stage the community is in (we're mostly about Sta
  4. Discord frustrates me too as you can repeatedly ask people to do the support questions and stuff on the forums and it gets ignored. On the other hand people who wouldn't be active at all do something there at least. I hate that it's some 3rd party we have no control of (read the TOS/EULA...) but getting rid of it would unfortunately bring more trouble than benefits. And the competition who would still use it could make it a "selling point". Yes, thinking of another ways to engage and grow the community is the only way I think... The problem is that most of the members don't give a f
  5. That'll be really useful. Our users wanted something like tapatalk (which we didn't use due to privacy concerns) for a long time.
  6. I find this whole hashtag business so impersonal... On top of that for me it always feels forced and artificial. Probably this is because I've started my adventure with the web around Y2K, so the community aspect looked totally different. Those communities were much more closer-knit and even in larger ones people still acted differently - and this is something I still try to look for and foster although in many cases it's growing more difficult. Anyway, I think that good example is Serif who have a really fine community where you can ask for tips on how to use the software, suggest new fu
    To begin with - IMO this functionality should be a part of the base package so it's wonderful that the author seen this need and created a splendid solution. This plugin is highly configurable (you can tweak parameters of rich embeds if you wish, not only pick between "big" or "small" embed which is a considerable asset for me) and makes using the community easier for lazier users. Let's be honest, most people won't "waste" time to make links they paste look more attractive - they just paste them and are done. With this installed instead of unsightly long link we get a nice snippet in the
  7. Can confirm, thanks @A Zayed for excellent support 🙂
  8. Hello @A Zayed, for some reason the plugin suddenly has stopped working. I've updated to the newest version, uninstalled it completely and re-installed it anew, repeteatedly cleaned cache, removed other plugin that that has been added since then - nothing helps. Issue persists on different browsers and accounts. Pasting any link results in following code being generated (here is an example for google). <a href="https://google.com" ipsnoembed="true">https://google.com</a> This occurs regardless of the contents of embedding blacklist too. I have no ideas how to fix this, pleas
  9. @GTServices manual staff tagging adds quite much work for staff which is problematic especially for small communities (i.e. I have to be a webmaster, head editor, admin, mod etc). Do you have any good suggestion how to best do this? Currently what I use is a mix of automatic tagging (autotags are based on subforum / gallery category that the user posts content in) mixed with fixing tags when I notice that there's a need. I also periodically go through tags via backend to get rid of errors, things that should be merged and similar. So the users have freedom to tag as they see fit (some use
  10. Oh yes, those things do help - one thing to be on the lookout for though - with hack #4 a moderator should look at least sometimes on the topic if the community has some passionate but hotheaded members 😉
  11. Hmm to iterate on this: is it possible to ban multiple domains at once? Adding one-by-one would be tedious work, as there's A LOT of those. Sure I could do that via SQL query but if there's another option I'd prefer that.
  12. Hell no, it always should be just an option and I can't imagine forcing users to show their real names if they don't want to.
  13. The only thing missing for me from IPS is an app so people can get notofications instantly (about PMs, likes etc - that should be configurable like forum notifications). We have a webhook on discord for posts and stuff, but that's the most important missing thing that comes to mind which could help in community building for me.
