  1. I don't know if I'm late to the party on this and it's already been mentioned, but: I'd really, really like to be able to create file categories (which function like sub/folders) to organise Club files.
  2. Great ideas which do lots to underscore the value that forums can bring in the age of quick-fix social media. Thanks Invision! 👍
  3. Cool! I'd still really like to see notifications sent to members who have unread PMs (after x amount of msgs. accumulate, or if left unread after X amount of time - you get the idea), whether user or admin-confgured. But these are some great improvements! 👍
  4. I do back up my invoices regularly and keep them elsewhere, but when dealing with users on the website it's obviously far, far more convenient to have the information at-hand when logged in to the adminCP. Your privacy points are well-taken, although I'd assume (following Brandon) that keeping the user name in this case (for followup, customer service etc) would be a perfectly legitimate reason (especially since the address and other information is kept on the invoice when the name is deleted). But I don't claim to be an expert on GDPR.
  5. More great additions to the suite! Not to make lives difficult or to sound ungrateful, but I wonder if opening from the top/going to newest comment/going to latest comments I haven't read shouldn't be a per-thread choice? If I'm revisiting a thread I'm heavily engaged in, maybe I just want to see all the newest comments (kudos to whoever had the great idea of filtering for only unread posts!); if it's a new thread I don't know much about, maybe I want to start at the top. Would this be possible using a quick filter button by the thread title or something? Anyway, just thinking out loud. Keep 'em coming! 👍
  6. I've noticed that if members on one's site purchase services and invoices are generated for them, if those members' accounts are deleted then the member's name disappears from not only the invoice listing, but also from the generated printable version of the invoice itself! So when you go to print an invoice or save it as PDF from the Invoice screen, all you have is an address without a name. My two cents: this is a bad idea. Could we please keep the original member name on invoices which have already been generated before the member's account was deleted, even if it doesn't link to anything (as in the Invoice list page)? It's just more professional from a record-keeping point of view IMHO, and very useful in case one needs to correspond with a member re: their account, services, purchases, etc. after the fact if said account was deleted. Thanks! 👍
  7. This is a great feature which makes it so much easier to add visual flavour to content. Thank you, Invision 🤗
  8. I plan to expand my use of Clubs ("Spaces" on my site) so that clients who need tuition or mentoring over a longer period can have a private space with multimedia galleries, a writing blog, and a versioned file storage space for essays etc. But because I also use Spaces for academic reading groups my only setback is that I really, REALLY need categories for Clubs so that I can organise things, as different classes of student use the same resources independently of each other. So, yes....great additions, and I'm looking forward to them. But hey - you wanna see me reach for a cigarette after upgrading (and I don't even smoke!)? Clubs categories!! (Come on...you even made me do a social media cat thing when I have Hegel to read!)
  9. I don't know if anyone has mentioned this or not, but: I have discovered a somewhat obscure glitch when using AF and sharing Gallery items to Facebook: If you want to share a Gallery image to FB if you have AF installed, it must have a description. If you try to share an image which doesn't have a description (just title and user comments etc.) AF seems to interfere; one of the blocks' text content appears where the description should. I disabled AF and was able to share description-less images without problem.
  10. Thanks Adriano! I assume this new version effectively replaces the Auto Follow Club plugin?
  11. Thanks for that. I had always assumed the "support ticket" system was generically different and incompatible, but I'll look into it. 🙂
  12. I hadn't thought of that. My dialogues with my clients can get pretty detailed (which is where the mouse-swipe-and-quote feature of the forums really shines), and my clients often attach files, so I assumed that the Support ticket system wasn't design for that sort of robustness.
  13. Thanks for your response Daniel. Yeah, I am involved in active dialogue with all of my clients; I had originally tried your suggestion but it didn't suit my needs, and @jair101 that's an interesting idea, but yes, I'll be making multiple threads. In fact, Clubs may also offer my clients some added functions they may use to their advantage. So yes, I'll be creating Clubs for each of my clients. Is this the time to inquire about getting a categories option for clubs in a future version so different kinds of Clubs (i.e. group/client) can be organised separately? 😉
  14. I want to vent my frustrations at the problems I see in the Invision platform with creating operational private forums. I currently have a forums category where each client has a "private" forum where they and I can interact in detail on projects. At first, these forums were password-protected so that only the client and myself could access the forum. The big problem with password-protected forums, however, is that new reply notification, while enabled, is non-functional - even if you set new reply notification on a thread in a private forum, notifications will not be sent. After some time attempting to troubleshoot this, I submitted a support ticket asking whether this was intentional or an oversight, and was told that it was indeed intentional. I asked why, and the answer Support gave me was something along the lines of: if the password were changed, then people would get notifications for a forum they couldn't access (I'd include the quote I got from Support anonymously, but the new Support system seems to have toasted my past ticket submissions 🤔). This makes no sense to me - a responsible admin would, well, you know, tell the new password to those who needed to know it! The only way out of all this seems to be to create each client as a separate Member group, then order forum permissions around that, which is time-consuming and cumbersome. Soooo, I currently have a forums category with permissions set for the client group only - this is not a perfect solution, as clients can freely browse other client forums, which I really do not want just on principle. Unless I'm missing something, I think this is a serious design flaw which IMHO was justified using rather dubious logic. Thoughts? Just thinking out loud, but would it be possible to create an app which would allow for fully-enabled and completely private forums without creating each client as a member group?
  15. Dig it, baby....dig it. https://www.instagram.com/p/B3urGzLnJiC/ (I hear his #1 request is "Ace of Spades" 😁)
  16. LOL yeah got that at last...thank you! 😀
  17. OK, but I have no option to download - only the $30 purchase button. Am I missing something?
  18. So wait a second...since I have Clubs Enhancements do I have to apply for a discount or something? I don't have a download option - only purchase. NVM....read the original message. 😄 Will PM you.
  19. I've been wrestling for a little while now with the lack of granularity in the existing notifications system. For those of us who run businesses online, it would be nice to set weekly digests for general forum-related matters, but be able to have instant notifications for groups of, say, paying clients or students who have questions and issues they post in private forums which need to be addressed sooner (or right away) rather than later. E.g., it would be nice to set weekly digests for everyone but instant notifications for new content from member group X. I understand this could get unwieldy if one tries to create new notification schemes for every group, but hopefully I'm getting the point across, e.g. that some of us have priority groups who have paid to have a more direct line to my/our services. 😁
  20. This is a great idea and I'm interested, but since my site is academic/educational I'm wondering if there is a choice as to what games are on the platform? I mean I'm sure there's choice, but I'm more inclined to have word and brain games on my site instead of arcade games.
  21. @Rikki made a dark theme for the core suite some time ago if I'm not mistaken. Not sure if it's been recently updated though.
  22. Awesome,,,works great. Many thanks for the update. 😁
  23. Couldn't you use a password-protected forum (or password-protected topic, which @Adriano Faria has an app for)?
  24. I've mentioned this before, but I'm hoping a future update will include a somewhat cleaner listing for different databases in the default search interface. As it stands right now, if you have several different databases e.g., one for "learning resources," one for "reviews," one for "articles," another for "entries," and if you use any of these nouns over more than one database (e.g. if you have several different DBs with "articles" on something or other), when you browse the Search in menu it can get rather messy. Moreover, for those of us who use DBs more extensively than others, there is no indication which database one is searching in! That is, if you have three different DBs which have "articles," when you browse Search in all you see are three different options called "Articles" which do not specify which DB that option points to. Might I suggest a more graceful organisational approach to this for DBs, such as something like a "Databases" flyout menu which lists all the "articles," "reviews," "entries" iterations (or whatever) along with the DB name?
