    The people near you function is no longer working - it is returning zero results

    Can you send me a PM with access info so I can investigate this please? I'm not seeing any issues locally.

    Sorry, there is a problem
    We could not locate the item you are trying to view.
    Error code: 2S136/I

    If I strip of the ?do=getNewComment manually, the page loads as expected.

    Not sure if this is a core or app issue, or what template and where to strip out the NewComment action.

    I have submitted a new version that should resolve this issue. Thank you for letting me know.

    Does this work on regular topics as well as pages? And do you still have a 4.4 version to download?

    This is intended for a single Pages database only, it does not generate a news sitemap for discussion topics. Support for regular sitemaps in topics is built in to Invision Community.

    Unfortunately the 4.4 version is no longer available but you're missing out by not upgrading to 4.5 😄 

    4.4 is still available and can be accessed from the changelog on the file listing.

    That being the case, what exactly am I supposed to put on this field?



    This should be the name of your publication e.g. "Wall Street Journal" although it is no longer required to exactly match the name in your articles at Google.

    Recently updated to 4.5 and installed latest update via marketplace etc. For some reason the All Competitions page (/index.php?app=competition) is not showing the images as it used to do.  Tried default theme, couple of browsers (safari, brave, firefox — desktop and IOS) all no-go. Ran support tool, no-go. Display of entries fine; voting works, etc.. Pointer to what I've overlooked welcome 😛  


    The app now allows you to set a cover photo image for each competition. You can set these in the competition settings in the admin control panel.

    @Andy Millne, you never answered about my display issue, nor for the feature requests... it is to bad your support is so slow because the app is great and could be even better..

    Please feel free to send me a PM with ACP access so I may investigate this.

    @Andy Millne Is it possible to make the horizontal block a little bit shorter?

    The theme is editable via the admin control panel as with all apps. Unfortunately I'm not able to assist with customization requests but there is a directory of 3rd party designers in the resources section at https://invisioncommunity.com/third-party/providers/

    I have a little Problem with the text editor. 

    If i try to add a text with my defined format, it looks well in the editor mode. 

    After i publish the text the format looks not the same. 

    Your screenshot is not showing and I'm not able to reproduce this locally but if you send me a PM with an admin login I can investigate that.

    @jesuralem and @Nathan Explosion There isn't any native support for videos currently. Any file uploaded will show as a downloadable link. I can look into adding video playback however.

    No, I'm the "super admin". The app is there, but the icon doesn't appear.

    Please send me a PM with access info and I will investigate.

    hi @Andy Millne
    perfect app... Thanks for adding my feature request. Thanks so far...

    I've purchased it now.

    Can i add two feature request again ? 

    1. During the competition & voting should be my competitors anonym. If you Enter new content from start till the end of the competition no member should be able to see who have uploaded the content ... 

    Only Admins and Mods can see the original author.

    If the voting has end everyone can automatically see who have upload the content.

    2. The delay function is nearly perfect... 

    One feature could be added. If i activate for a competition the delay function, no one should be able to upload new content after the voting starts. So during the start and delay time everyone can upload their content, and if the time is over, the voting starts and adding new content should be stopped.

    Both features must have an option toggle button. Thats not a general setting for competitions, just optional.

    and last question !? 
    is it possible to change the task from hourly to every 5 minutes

    Thanks these are some great suggestions. I'll see what I can do for the next version.

    It is set up like this currently - http://prntscr.com/t9ba97

    Ah I see, it's the vertical menu that prevents a sub item. It's not possible to add a link Link as in your screenshot unless you're comfortable making theme edits in which case you would edit the "competitions" template. Alternatively you could edit the "There are no competitions available" language string to include a link.

    Hi Andy, any idea when the major update with new features will release?


    I don't have a date yet but it will likely be inline with the Invision Community 4.5 release or shortly after.

    @Andy Millne - I have a manual photo competition button in my Navbar which directly takes to the contest page. I removed the default navbar Photo competition option as we did not have enough space.

    Doing so has removed the ability to find old competitions/winners unless I add the link to it to the Navbar. Is it possible to have a button on the active competitions page somewhere that would link to the results page.

    Something like this if possible - http://prntscr.com/t8n5u4

    If you still have a primary nav bar for the contest page you could add an external link type as a sub item using the menu manager. Would that work?

    Thank you for taking it into consideration. Hopefully you are able to figure something out in the future.

    I am having an alignment bug on the photo contest - http://prntscr.com/sz822x

    Contest 1 and 2 are aligned properly next to each other but 3 and 4 are not. 

    Can you please send me a PM with admin control panel access and a link to the issue so I may investigate this?

    Is it possible to have an option to show or not show terms and conditions?

    This is a bug. The rules should only show if any are set. I have fixed this for the next release.

    Is it possible to have an option for NSFW? I was thinking of having a NSFW Photo contest but don't want users to see a naked picture on the active contests list.

    This is in interesting idea. I think this could work by blurring images for competitions marked as NSFW until a user toggles a preference. Their preference could be stored per session.

    Since the update I have a small CSS bug. The ribbons of the metailles that overlap

    Does it happen on the default theme? Could you send me a PM with an admin login so I can look into that for you? I'm not able to reproduce the issue locally.

  14. I have released a new version to address the latest reported bugs. I have also been working hard on 1.4 which has some rather large changes now so I think I will target 4.5 for this. I will still be doing bug fix releases for 1.3 on 4.4 for the foreseeable future.

    @misfit76 Can you PM me about the horizontal widget issue please? I'm not able to reproduce that locally.



    Does anybody use the scheduler? I'm thinking of removing it to reduce complexity but will leave it if people say they are using it.

    You will still be able to create competitions with future dates in advance but they won't be automatically created on the weekly/monthly schedule.
