sobrenome reacted to Jon Erickson for a file, AWS Simple Email Service with Bounce Management
This simple lightweight application allows you to send emails from the Invision Power Board platform through the AWS Simple Email Service API. This application sits on top of your configured email delivery methods and overrides your default settings. With the click of one button, enable and disable the service. The application also features several complaint and bounce management actions that may be applied to members to help improve throughput and deliverability.
Amazon SES is one of the most robust and cheapest transactional email service providers on the market. While this application is extremely lightweight and easy to configure, most of the work to correctly set up will occur within the AWS Console. Follow the following steps to correctly configure AWS to send emails.
NOTE: When you initially begin to use AWS Simple Email Service, you will be in a non-production, sandbox environment allowing you to test the email service without affecting your deliverability and reputation. Once you are ready to enter production, you will need to request access from AWS under the Sending Statistics section. The form is self-explanatory and will not be covered here.

Simple Email Service Installation For Sending Emails:
Create or Sign In to your AWS Console. Proceed to the IAM section of the AWS Console. On the left, select the Users section and add a new user. If you already have a user you would like to use, proceed to the next step. Enable programmatic access for the user account. Attach the AmazonSESFullAccess policy to the user account. Finish creating the account, adding any tags you'd like for easy identification. Copy and paste your Access Key and Secret Key into the corresponding fields within the Invision Power Board ACP settings. Proceed to the AWS Simple Email Service section of the AWS console. Select your closest region in the top right corner. Copy the corresponding region identifier and input it into the corresponding field within the Invision Power Board ACP settings. Save your Invision Power Board ACP settings. Back within the AWS Console, select Domains -> Verify a New Domain to add the domain you wish to send emails from. This is called Verified Identities - Add Identity, if you are using the new AWS console. You may enter as many email addresses as you wish to send email from. Make sure to check the "Generate DKIM Settings" checkbox. These are enabled by default if using the new AWS console. This will help with your deliverability. Update your DNS records for the domain you are verifying by adding the TXT and CNAME records that are presented. Make sure to not update the MX records as this will affect your ability to receive the emails. We are only configuring sending emails. For each verified identity you add, enter the same email address in the corresponding field of your Invision Power Board ACP settings. Once an email address has been verified, you are ready to start sending emails. Fill in the Default Sending Email Address field of your Invision Power Board ACP settings. This will help your Invision Power Board website not send emails from unverified domains. This may happen through third-party applications. While in the sandbox environment, you will need to add your test receiving email address under the Email Addresses section, or else you will receive a sending error. Once everything is configured, proceed back to the Invision Power Board ACP and proceed to Email Settings. You can use the built-in Test Email Settings feature to test AWS SES. You will see the corresponding logs under the AWS SES application and any generated errors. Simple Notification Service Installation For Handling Bounces/Complaints:
Create or Sign In to your AWS Console. Proceed to the IAM section of the AWS Console. Select the user that you created/or designated when setting up Simple Email Service for sending emails. Attach the AmazonSNSFullAccess policy to the user account. Proceed to the AWS Simple Notification Service section of the AWS console. Create two new topics for handling bounce and complaint notifications, one for bounces and one for complaints. Make sure these are Standard topics. Name them for easy identification. Proceed to the AWS Simple Email Service section of the AWS console and click on your Verified Identity/Domain used in sending emails. Click the Notifications tab and edit the Feedback Notifications. Select your newly created SNS topics for their respective field. Make sure to "Include original email headers". Once your domain notifications are set, proceed back to your Invision Power Board ACP settings and proceed to the REST & OAuth section. Create a new API key and make sure to allow access to all endpoints under the AWS Simple Email Service application. Enable logging for both endpoints as well. Once you have created the new API key, click on the API reference tab and copy the example API POST URL for each AWS Simple Email Service endpoint; bounces, and complaints. Proceed back to the AWS Simple Notification Service and create a new subscription. You will create two subscriptions as well, one for bounces and one for complaints. Choose the matching topic and select HTTPS for the protocol. Paste the appropriate API POST URL you copied from step 11 and attach the ?key=APIKEY query parameter to the end of the URL. For example, the entire URL should look something like: https://community.deschutesdesigngroup.com/api/awsses/bounces?key=APIKEY. If you do not utilize Friendly URL's (the default setting), you may have "index.php" in your URL. Make sure to create a second subscription for complaints - you should have two subscriptions, one for bounces with the bounce API URL and one for complaints with the complaints API URL. The AWS Simple Email Service application will take care of confirming the subscription for you. If the subscription does not show Confirmed, your API endpoint may not be configured correctly and you should submit a support ticket for assistance. AWS should now post a notification every time a bounce and complaint is encountered and Invision Power Board will process the notifications based on the email address using the Bounce and Complaint settings saved in your ACP settings. Bounce and Complaint Notifications can be tested by sending a test email through Invision Power Board's Test Email function to email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org. Logs for each notification should be seen in your settings.
sobrenome reacted to opentype for a file, OG Image for Forum Topics
When you share forum topics or forum posts on social media sites like Facebook, the site’s default sharer image will currently be used, which doesn’t work well as representation of specific forum discussions. This plugin will use the first image uploaded as attachment in a topic and set it as as Open Graph image (“og:image”), so social media sites (Facebook, Twitter and more) can use it as thumbnail image to represent the link. The process is fully automatic. There are no settings and no image needs to be picked manually.
Forums application Note:
This plugin only adds the attachment image to the source code, so Facebook and other social media services can pick it up. There is no guarantee, that the image will be used instantly and that later changes to the forum images will be used by social media services. Facebook caches the images and loads them asynchronously. So when you share an URL for the first time, the image might not show instantly. If you want to test what Facebook is picking up, go to https://developers.facebook.com/tools/debug/sharing/
If you don’t see an image for your topic URL or it is an outdated one, click “Scrape again” until the correct image is loaded.

Please leave your feedback. Whether positive or negative, your feedback motivates me to work on the topic.
In version 1.1.4, an option will be added to hide the large category and section title on the forum home page.
In version 1.1.3 for mobile, I wanted to highlight user-generated content in user profiles, not user-generated information. The user does not have to swipe to the middle of the page to post a new status.
Version 1.1.2 will bring unread and new content buttons where newbie users will notice them immediately. There are small children in my community who, without these buttons, are poorly versed in site navigation. And these buttons help them a lot!

sobrenome reacted to Makoto for a file, Attachment Watermarks
Watermarks is an application that allows you to apply watermarks to image attachments uploaded within your community, just as you can for images uploaded to the IP.Gallery application.
Version 2.0.0 is a continuation of the original Attachment Watermarks plugin. If you are upgrading from this version, please note this is not a direct upgrade. You will need to uninstall the plugin, and then install the new application afterwards.
This new version includes many highly requested features, including..
The ability to retain backups of original attachments, which you can restore freely at a later date The ability to apply watermarks to existing attachment uploads Watermarks that scale dynamically according to the original images size The ability to freely change and update watermarks in the future (as long as you leave attachment backups enabled) Attachment Watermarks is currently the only watermarking application on the marketplace supporting all of these features!
After installation, just navigate to the settings page to get started. You'll first be prompted whether or not you want to retain backups of non-watermarked images.
It's strongly recommended you do, unless you are very constrained on storage space.
Once this is done, just upload your watermark and adjust the other settings to your preference!
At this point, you can optionally go ahead and apply your watermark to existing attachments through the "Rebuild attachment watermarks" option at the top right.

Custom Fields anywhere and everywhere.
The Template System allows you to customize anything in the suite - forums, calendars, gallery categories, blogs, etc - and to create forms for the user to populate when posting new content.
Create custom fields Group custom fields into Sets for individual containers (e.g. forums) Customize the layout of the field values when viewing content Allow multiple Sets per container to give users a choice of which form to populate Mark individual fields as required - preventing users from creating content without populating the additional fields By default, you can add
Custom fields when creating topics Custom fields when creating calendar events Custom fields when posting blog entries Custom fields when uploading images to the gallery Custom fields when submitting downloads files Note that the system will detect other areas of the site (depending on the 3rd-party modifications you have installed) and will allow you to place custom fields in those areas. However, support for those areas is not guaranteed.
Fields can be created for individual areas or shared across multiple areas. (Example: I can create TextFieldA for topics, or I can have TextFieldA available for both topics and blogs.)
Different fields can be used for different items within each area. (Example: TextFieldA is visible for Forum1, but DropdownA is visible in Forum2.)
Fields can be grouped differently for different areas. (Example: Forum1 will have TextFieldA, but Blog1 will have TextFieldA and DropdownA.)
sobrenome reacted to rebraf for a file, Modern Gallery Homepage
Looking for a more modern Gallery homepage? Well look no further!
This simple plugin completely transforms your Gallery index page into a modern, sleek and simple consumable Gallery. The main features of this plugin:
The Gallery homepage completely transforms to a "masonry"-style layout using flex CSS to ensure everything fits nicely. Infinite scrolling! No more page 1, page 2, page 3 clicks....new images are loaded right into the page as the user scrolls, allowing them to more easily consume the images stored on your site. The built-in Gallery lightbox is still supported, so you can click on an image to view more details. You can still easily click back to the standard Gallery index page via the "View Categories" button at the top. Images zoom in and show a box shadow when hovering to help visually indicate where the user is about to click. Really that's all there is to it. Enjoy!
sobrenome reacted to Makoto for a file, Makoto's Gallery Enhancements
This plugin contains various tweaks and adjustments I have made to the IP.Gallery application to make it more suitable for my own personal use.
After losing the original code for this plugin and having to reverse engineer the last build I made of it in order to apply a minor bugfix with the latest IPS release, I have decided to go ahead and open source my modifications here to submit as a general suggestion to IPS in regards to changes I'd like to see to the IP.Gallery platform.
What this plugin does
1. Changes the scaling of images in the gallery. I find the default gallery window way too small for most use cases. This plugin, by default, modifies the gallery window to utilize up to 65% of the browser window.
Here is a before and after demonstrating this:
16x9 aspect ratios can cleanly fill the entire box with this setup, while other images still are able to be viewed at much more reasonable resolutions.
2. Allows you to disable the gallery lightbox.
The gallery lightbox is neat. It's nice to have in certain areas of the site, like when clicking on a gallery image linked in a forum post.
It is not, however, nice to have literally everywhere you go in the gallery. It does not replace traditional gallery navigation for me, and based on the vast amount of user feedback I've seen, most members I've interacted with do not like this system either.
This is anecdotal, but shares my personal experience.
This plugin will let you disable having the lighbox open when you click on images in category and album overview pages. You will instead be directed to the normal image overview page.
3. (Or more 2.1), disables the gallery lightbox when loading an image link directly.
Why is the lightbox being forced here? It's redundant and not any more user friendly than just looking at the page that's already been loaded. It's just an annoyance. So I've disabled it.
4. View full image actually opens the full image.
This I consider more of a bug. The "view full image" link does not, as its name implies, open the full image. It opens the large, scaled down image in a new tab instead.
This plugin fixes it so that it links to the original image instead.
5. Adds a download button to the lightbox
After bashing the lightbox overuse so much, I decided to wrap up by adding something to it. This includes a simple tweak that adds a "download image" button to the lightbox.
6. Adds two new options to control the number of albums and images displayed
By default, the gallery displays 25 albums and 50 images per page. If you utilize categories that make heavy use of both albums and direct image uploads, you may wish to tweak this like me. Personally, I prefer limiting the gallery to 10 albums per page.

sobrenome reacted to All Astronauts for a file, Super Search and Stream Results
Searchlight navigable highlighted search terms on the content items themselves Select-a-Search highlight text to search feature on commenting content More Precise Search Result Snippets Faster Search and Stream results Customize Gallery stream results Truncate Stream descriptions
Highlights searched-for terms on search results content pages. When your users click a search result link, the content page that loads with those results will have their search terms highlighted! SSSR has some major improvements over the earlier standalone Searchlight plugin. Marked terms can be navigated via a side-page navigation element that also notes how many marks there are on the page and which mark is currently navigated to. Admins can configure not only the mark styling but create separate styling for the "active" mark on a page. Version 4 of SSSR incorporates major improvements into the marking routine
With 4.0.0 I've reworked the Searchlight functionality to effectively remove any double marks that would break the Searchlight highlighting and navigation, added more formatting options for the search mark navigator, and a few other things. SSSR 6 now includes a toggle to turn the marks on/off and also will no longer mark out common small inconsequential stop words (the, a, an, etc...) when marking words separately. They are still marked when the full query term is marked out.
On comment content, which are any commenting areas in the Invision Community suite, most notably Forums, IPS provides a feature where you can select text and are then presented with the option to add that selected text as a quote in a new comment/response. SSSR with 4.0.0 now piggy backs on that feature to allow you to instead search that selected text instead! Admins can just add the single option to search for the selected text as individual terms or as a direct phrase (quote). Yes, expanding this to other non-comment areas is on the punch list but it will probably require adding in a 3rd party tooltip library. Not the end of the world, just means I'll take some time before doing it.
Better / Faster Search Results Snippets
Prior to Invision Community 4.5 IPS pushed out the ENTIRE content item for every search result. That was... not ideal. So I had a Truncate Search and Stream Results plugin that lightened that load and also incorporated it into an early version of this plugin. IPS got religion with 4.5 and now natively truncates every search and stream result to 600 characters, which naturally removes the need for my truncating plugin. The hitch though, is that it is always the first 600 characters of the item. If you expect search results to have some of your searched for terms highlighted in the snippet, unless you have a hit in the first 600 characters, that ain't happening. For streams this is nothing - there is nothing to mark out. For search results this is a problem. I went out of my way with my earlier plugin to ensure at least something highlightable was returned in the search results snippets. For 4.5 this is, as you can see, still needed. SSSR skips common English stop words (Elasticsearch list, to skip common things like 'a', 'the', and so on) and looks for the first instance of a search term in the content item, grabs some text forward and back, and pushes that 600 characters out for the search result snippet, ensuring you will, usually, have something highlighted in each result returned. Works spectacularly for quoted search terms; see the screen shots for the rest. Its pretty solid though I do have an upgrade in the hopper that will take the longest of your search terms and use that as the one to mark out instead of just the first term. Either way, this is a nice search upgrade.
Invision Community 4.6: IPS pulled the truncation of search and stream results they had with 4.5. SSSR was truncating anyways for search results to get better matching snippets presented but with SSSR 6 I've re-inserted the truncation on stream results. They are, of course, quite perky now without needing your browser to truncate all that content text with JS.
When users make custom Streams, all of their choices for content appear in the description underneath the stream name. That can be a rather large amount of text. SSSR provides an option to truncate all that down with whatever remains available under a 'read more' click. See screenshot. Gallery stream results can be quite heavy, often times loading in 15 or more images per Gallery item. That's a lot of weight for a page. SSSR let's you truncate that all down to whatever level you are comfortable with. When users are on the advanced search / search results page, they probably do not need to be told in the page title that they can 'Search the community'. SSSR provides an option to kill that and replace it instead with the terms searched for with the same appearance as the page title.
Make sure you toggle the Searchlight feature ON in the plugin settings. Same for Select-a-Search. Searchlight should work most places in most apps but Gallery has been specifically exceptioned OUT due to the post-pageload image popup modal. I might come back to that later. IMPORTANT! For select-a-search, this piggy-backs on the built-in IPS quote highlight function. That feature ONLY fires if a user is able to actually quote something in a comment area. That means it will not fire for guests if you do not allow guests to post, or any forums/topics where the member is not allowed to post, locked topics, and so on. Yes there is still more to come with this mod. Search junky? Check out Social Search. It's slightly paused as IPS now natively tracks search results but my tracking is more precise and there are some neat social features around search. IF we get some more interest there I'd love to get back at it...
Any questions just pop into the support topic.
