  1. 🤔 Strange. I went ahead and upgraded from 4.5.2 to 4.5.3, deleted the theme I had previously installed, and installed the current version. It seems to be working ok, but I'll let you know if I encounter any problems.
  2. This theme seems to be working so far so good for me on 4.5.2, but it appears it isn't compatible for 4.5.3 Do you happen to have an update for version 4.5.3? I was reading the Theme Differences Documentation and it seems like there are only a few minor changes that need to be made.
  3. My old flash games from 2010 I had on my 3.x Arcade worked fine; I assume that the 2.x Arcade flash games should also work. 🙂
  4. We currently have these Social Profiles available to add to the bottom of our IPS4.4: Facebook Twitter Youtube Tumblr DevianArt Etsy Flickr Foursquare Github Instagram Pinterest LinkedIn Slack Xing Weibo VKontkte I'd like to add a few others like: Soundcloud Twitch Mixer It'd be nice to have an option to add costume one letting us upload our own images. 🙂
  5. Are you doing anything fun with your community? I'm telling my members we're shutting it down. I've closed my in-game clan chat on RuneScape which is the game we play. They're all falling for it. It's so funny. Many haven't checked our news on our Discord nor the event on the Calendar yet. đŸ¤Ŗ Live on twitch atm:
  6. We used to ask for first names since we kept our community as a tightly restricted family, but I always had to edit out whenever people posted full names and it got awkward when we had new members who didn't want to give out any personal info. Nowadays I just ask people what do you prefer to be called?
  7. This has been a growing concern for me recently as one of our admins caught the coronavirus. I guess that right now if I die, the community dies with me. But ideally, I would hope that other admins would contact my family and keep the community I built alive after my death. 😐
  8. Yeah... I've just been avoiding social media for the past 15 years. Sometimes I feel like an old fart who hasn't caught up with technology, but Social Media is a lot to manage. I don't know if you have any advice for social media marketing or social media management. I asked around and one thing they recommended me was using Hootsuite, but I feel like I need a staff member in charge of that. It's a whole different thing and it's really hard to manage a website while at the same time trying to maintain social media presence. A lot companies just spam social media sharing new blogs, article
  9. I didn't fully understand how these modifications help when someone opts out. Where are users opting out? PS: Google lets you opt out of target advertising on your Google Account settings. It also wouldn't hurt to link this on your Privacy Policy: https://myaccount.google.com/data-and-personalization
  10. This explains so much. 😲 Support for this feature to be added. 👍 IPS 4 currently does not support any authenticated methods for Google to use to login. ☚ī¸
  11. So far I'm loving the Downloads. They look really really good and it's a good place to earn some money with Amazon Affiliate links. On previous forums, I only had forum redirects to downloads and although they got a bunch of clicks I always felt like I couldn't describe them as good as I wanted to. The Downloads section lets you basically write an entire Page about it where people can comment as if it was a forum. What else can you ask for? 👾
  12. All this is good, but while self-hosting I've experienced all sorts of attacks including Brute force attempts, SQL injections, DDOS attacks, etc. There is always someone bored with nothing better to do than try to break your site. I feel like IPS Communities need a WAF and CDN more than WordPress websites. There are a few things you can get like Cloudflare, SiteLock and Sucuri. GoDaddy acquired Sucuri so they also sell it at a discounted price. Hopefully this helps someone. Don't wait until your site gets hacked! ☠ī¸
  13. 1. Interest Discoverability I think that a "Getting Started" article visibly linked or a private message sent to new members would go a long way. I remember on my old site, I even made redirection forums for registering and some people clicked it because I assume they didn't know the sign up button was at the top right corner. Stuff like that helps. 🧐 I'm still deciding what the best way to design my new site is because I wanted to keep the registration form small to encourage people to sign up. But then I want to slowly have people dip their toes into all of the sections of the site
