    My files with discount for the Black Friday: https://invisioncommunity.com/profile/114025-adriano-faria/content/?type=downloads_file&sortby=file_updated&sortdirection=desc
    —————
    A little bit more for Black Friday: buy any file with price starting from $12 (original price $15) and get one free of $9 (original price $10). Just send a message with the chosen file and you will get it for free. 
    1: This is valid while Black Friday is happening. File won’t be added after Black Friday is over, even if you purchased it during the Black Friday.
    2: Send a message if you purchased a file yesterday so I can add a file to you.

    Quoting and attachments are both supported in Commerce tickets, both when pulled in via email and when a client manually visits the site and replies to a ticket. 🙂

    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? 😉

    Is it a one way communication or are you also creating topics? If only your clients are creating the topics, you could use only one forum for al the communication with your clients where you'll disable the "Users can see topics posted by other users?" setting.
     
    But as @opentype said, you could also use clubs and create a club for each client.

    liquidfractal got a reaction from OliverKapunkt in How to make a "Random Quote"/"Tip of the Day" widget   
    Hello,
    So the following is really just a bit of PHP code I found and have been using for a while that lets you create a custom widget which picks and displays a random line of information from a file.  Random quotes can be very useful for engaging your members obliquely - giving them food for thought or ideas they may carry with them throughout the day after they leave your site, or they may even become topics for discussion or debate in your community.  Random tips are extremely useful for those of us (like myself) who don't yet have time to develop FAQs or "how-to"s for the suite's many functions.  You can use this to offer useful tips unobtrusively to your members, giving them a chance to explore the site's functionality while they browse your community.
    I'm sure there are several similar solutions out there, but this is what I've been using for some time now and it works just fine.  I offer this as-is, with no promise of troubleshooting or guarantees.  This code is not mine and I do not take credit for writing it.  If you have problems you can respond to this post and I'll help if I can, but I do not guarantee any technical support - I'm just sharing what works for me.
    You will need Pages in your suite in order to use this tip.  You will also need access to your site or server's folder directory (e.g. through CPanel or equivalent).
    So:
    Go to Pages in the AdminCP and click Blocks.  Then click the the Create New Block button.  For Type, click Custom; in the Content Editor category, select Manual PHP. On the next (Create New Block) screen, fill out the information as you want (name, description, key, etc) in the Details tab.  When finished, click the Content tab and copy/paste the following code into the text box:
      $file= "yourfile.txt"; $quotes = file($file); srand((double)microtime()*1000000); $randomquote = rand(0, count($quotes)-1); echo $quotes[$randomquote]; do not enable caching as this will be a dynamic widget whose content will refresh every time the widget is loaded.
    Save your new custom widget.
     
    The next thing you need to do is create the file referenced in the first line ("yourfile.txt" for our purposes; name it whatever you want, but make sure the first line matches the file you're about to create!).  With these default settings, this file needs to be in your root (public_html) directory.
    So make a blank yourfile.txt, and to add an item of data simply edit the file and add a line with <div> tags.  For example, to add a quote:
    <div style="font-family: Georgia;">Life can only be understood backwards, but it must be lived forwards. - <i>S0REN KIERKEGAARD</i></div> One instance per line.  Change the style to suit your needs with whatever on-the-fly code you like.
    One more example I use: to insert a random tip on using the IPB suite, just create another custom widget using the above directions, and rename the file to something different (tips.txt or whatever).  You can do something like this:
    <div style="font-family: Verdana; color: green;"><strong>TIP:</strong> Put your mouse pointer over a Forums topic to generate a brief preview of its content.</div> Again, one line like this per line of the file.  You get the idea.  So now, wherever you place your custom widget, every time that page is loaded you should see a random selection from your file.
    I'm not a professional developer at all, but the only possible drawback this might pose is that every time this widget is invoked it calls a PHP function which reads and references a file, which in theory may slow things down a bit if you have a ton of users.  But this might be negligible.  As to whether or not this would work better than creating an Invision database of quotes/tips and calling that, I have no idea.
    At any rate, I hope this helps someone out there who, like myself, was looking for an easy, straightforward solution to generating random quotes/tips.

    liquidfractal got a reaction from Joel R in clean up Search listing for databases   
    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?

    liquidfractal reacted to Matt in Invision Stories   
    There's a few barriers here.
    The technical: to allow 'stories' to be posted, you'll need a fair bit of storage for the videos, you'll also need a queued system to take in raw video and transcribe it into a more friendly and compressed format which is beyond the reach for most self-hosted sites.

    The strategic. No one comes here to see what I'm up to. They come here for help with their Invision Communities, or they come here to post advice for others, or to learn how to manage their communities.

    Forums are discussion led platforms. The discussion is the star.
    Social media are people led platforms. The person is the star.

    Allowing random members to upload stories about what they're doing and so on cross-circuits the purpose of a discussion led platform.

    Social media is great at being social medial. Forums are great at being forums.

    liquidfractal got a reaction from RObiN-HoOD in FEATURE REQUEST: notifications for unread PMs   
    I think it would be nice if admins were able to configure the suite to email reminders to people that they have unread PMs, e.g., if they have PMs x days/weeks old which haven't been read, then send a reminder which would be repeated X times (so a reasonable non-spamming limit could be specified).
    In addition, this could be limited/configured by group (or even perhaps by specific member for situations requiring more granularity).  As a bonus, it would be even nicer to be able to use tokens to customise the notifications, e.g., "You have unread PMs from <member>." (lol...tried using square brackets and it doesn't show).
    A lot of people seem to rely pretty heavily on the PM system (including myself), so I think this would be a nice feature to have.
    It would obviously be preferable to have this as part of the core suite, but perhaps some ambitious third-party developer wants to think about this....
