    Sonya* reacted to ahc in No-code automation with Zapier   
    I'm just going to be upfront with you.
    I will remain slightly bitter until the automation and gamification options we could build with Kevin's app become a fully integrated core feature. I cannot overstate just how crippling losing the 30+ custom rules I spent hours building myself was to our site. I'm a broken record about this, but you can go into my post history and find examples of how I used this app to really get Invision going to its full potential based on the needs of my community, which was a lot.
    I'm not talking about just "fun stuff" either, I'm talking about automation that increased the staff workflow tenfold, boosted engagement with custom emails and front-end notifications for too many things to list, added extra functionalities to downloads, commerce, and groups (clubs) that were missing that should come standard (in my personal opinion), etc.  And the biggest kick in the throat is that we also were able to improve on the apps that Invision barely updates, like the gallery for example. That's one of the most used apps in my community, second to pages which features a lot of gallery based content.  I know they just do basic maintenance on the other apps because forums is their bread and butter, but god damn they treat the gallery like their red-headed step child. Since moving here in 2017 I have suggested so many improvements that have fallen on deaf ears it seems.
    We've had to backtrack so much that when I heard of the Zapier integrations, it almost brought a tear to my exhausted, frustrated eyes.  Finally a light at the end of the tunnel for my community... but now it's locked behind their cloud service. 
    Invision charges $590/m for 100GB storage in their cloud service (that's the option I would have to select if I were to switch)... that is more than my yearly server and storage costs combined, and that's PER MONTH.  I pay $7/m for 1TB storage, and if I go over that, it's only an additional $6 per TB.  I don't want to leave Invision.  I'd rather just stick with the software even if it's not perfect to save my community the hassle of having to move again, but that is just very unrealistic.

    It does indeed.
    We had some fun with this plugin on our community, creating a ubuesque collective user, but it's no longer working now on 4.5.4.2
    Invision, please bring to your platform the key features of this plugin.
    Make it so only selected groups can post anonymously.
    Make it so posts can appear as posted by a selected user.
    Pleeeease.
    Estimate time or arrival?

    I have gotten a lot of complaints about how the selected answer is taken out of order and placed right after the question because it breaks up conversations.

    Good idea! 🙂
    In my case, I would use it but only for chosen forums [not globally].
    For forums like news, feedback, contacting the mods I find it useful. But for Chit-Chat-like forum it would be unnecessary. Thanksfully we can set in CSS where to display the badge and where to hide it. 🙂

    This looks very similar to the great plugin Post Anonymously in Forums by @TSP.
    One question, though: Will this feature make it possible to tell different anonymous members apart, like the plugin does, or will all anonymous posts in a topic look the same?

    The links I can see in AdminCP in mobile settings are:
    for AppleOS https://testflight.apple.com/join/bzsWOXFO for Android https://play.google.com/apps/testing/com.invisioncommunity.communities I have no idea, why you cannot see those links in your AdminCP. 🤔

    Nope, nothing there.
    I got an official reply, that there is no app, only beta version (which I can't access anymore). I'm really confused now, to be honest.

    In your AdminCP go to System->Mobile App->Settings. You will find there links to the App Stores. This has worked for me.

    Sonya* reacted to Interferon in 4.5: Blog Categories   
    Right, because end users are going to come up with sensible categories they will all share.
    I have to rename the majority of our submitted files in the downloads system because people can't use capitalization properly, misspell words, or add weird symbols to their titles. Probably 100% of the time I have to rewrite their descriptions because they don't use complete sentences. If you allow users to screw things up, they will any way they can.

    Sonya* got a reaction from Interferon in 4.5: Blog Categories   
    A user has to create (or choose) category for every entry within his blog. Those categories are for this single blog only, not general for all blogs or users. When he submits another entry to the blog later on, he can choose already created category (one of the previous entries) or create a new category.

    Sonya* got a reaction from Interferon in 4.5: Blog Categories   
    There are two kind of categories:
    Categories for blogs, e. g. General, are there to structure blogs. They are managed in AdminCP. Categories within a blog are there to structure entries. They are entered by users who submit blog entries on the frontend.

    I'm starting a new community shortly and I just don't want my users to use deprecated features. Not a big deal, but if a feature is deprecated, I don't want to have someone use it and then react negatively when it goes away. Users don't like change (especially feature removals), in my experience.

    Sonya* reacted to Adriano Faria in 4.5: Language System Updates   
    We (those who make/update translations) need a tool that can tell us which new language bits was added between versions so we can update our translations easily and faster.
    The UNTRANSLATED filter isn't practical in this case because there are hundred of language bits that I (and a lot of people here) didn't translate (like countries, emoticons, etc) and they are there so it's a "false" positive in this case.
