  1. Leaders automatically have permission to edit, just as they do for adding. ๐Ÿ™‚
  2. Without a doubt, clubs is one of the most popular features added to Invision Community in recent times. Invision Community clubs allows you to run sub-communities on your site. We've seen clubs used in many ways, including managing geographically local groups and clan groups for large gaming sites. This popularity drives us to keep incrementally improving the feature set for clubs, and Invision Community 4.5 is no different. One thing that was raised many times was a way for club owners and leaders to create simple pages with general information members need. Happily, in Invision Community 4.5, this feature now exists (and more!) In addition to the title and visual editor that allows full formatting of the page content, there is an additional visibility setting which allows owners and leaders to define which types of members can view the page. This is perfect for showing a page that is only visible to non-members which informs them how to join the club. Likewise, it is a great way to display moderation guidelines to the club moderators only. Of course, owners and leaders will always be able to see all pages added to a club. Additionally, once a page is added to a club, a tab will be added alongside others, and the page can be re-arranged just like the rest. Using this, owners and leaders can create an alternative unique index page for the club. default-view.mp4 This is just one of many club improvements finished for Invision Community 4.5. We'll be talking about these in a future blog!
  3. It was mentioned before, but browsers are beginning to roll out CSS options for light / dark mode preferences. https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/CSS/@media/prefers-color-scheme
  4. Setting this aside, the manifest file is generated dynamically based on various setting, rather than as a static file. Moving it to a cookie-less domain would require downloading a static file every time any of those settings have changed (of which, there are many spread throughout the suite).
  5. Personally, I recommend Two Factor Authentication with Google Authenticator or Authy. That way it's tied to your mobile device.
  6. I still get tickets for $20. In fact, I'm going to one next week.
  7. My brother owns an SG, which is very nice, though I prefer Les Paul's. The Les Paul is a bit more versatile than the SG - you can listen to really any type of music featuring a guitar, and not be surprised if a Les Paul is used.
  8. Hi, For future reference, it's usually best to submit a ticket via the Client Area, even if it's affecting our site, to get noticed faster. I only saw this because it was pointed out to me. ๐Ÿ™‚ I've pushed a change which should resolve this for now, while we investigate the full cause, so feel free to try again in a few minutes.
  9. It could definitely be integrated, likely via a plugin, but is the minimum age requirement setting not sufficient? ACP > System > Login & Registration > Registration. Under "Allow New Registrations?" select "Yes, with full registration form" and you will be given an option to only allow registrations over a certain age.
  10. This is actually a good suggestion, so I'm going to move this topic to the Feedback area. ๐Ÿ™‚
  11. It depends on the method in use. If PHP is performing the conversion, then we can track what row it's working on in the table and update the converter accordingly. This method, however, is a lot slower. If MySQL is performing the conversion, then we can't track what row it's working on (because it's done in a single query), however this method is a lot faster than using PHP. So it's a double edged sword, really. If PHP were to perform the conversion, those 7 hours would have likely been a lot longer.
  12. ACP > System > Community Enhancements.
  13. If you haven't already, please submit a ticket so we can take a look at your account.
  14. With our new release notes policy, anything removed is also included, no matter how minor it is. From the 4.3.5 release notes:
  15. Not really - it was upgraded to 4.11.0, but anything else would be in the Blog.
  16. No, none of these changes will require adjustments to your htaccess file.
  17. I wouldnโ€™t get too excited, unfortunately. ๐Ÿ˜‰
  18. Actually, this is very simple to do with some template logic and a little bit of PHP - no Pages needed (though it gets easier if you do have Pages, because you have a lot more options). {{$tips = array( 'You can use the @ symbol to mention other members in a post.', 'If you hover over a members name, you can see a brief overview of their profile.', 'A star marked on a topic means that you have already participated in that topic.' );}} <p class='ipsMessage ipsMessage_info'>Did you know: {expression="$tips[ array_rand( $tips ) ]"}</p> I plugged this into the forums/index/index template just above the <section> tag:
