  1. Finally someone who supports this feature in their core software! Great addition and much needed especially for support forums.
  2. There is no such functionality in Invision Community. I wonder why one would need that... What I agree with though is that more automation would be very helpful. (And no, Zapier does not cover it at all unfortunately.)
  3. I feel the same. I deactivated this feature just because of the fact that everyone can see it.
  4. With 4.5 we got those nice and shiny badges: However there is not much we can do with these. No way to edit the icon (I know it can be done manually, I am talking about AdminCP options...), to way to change the inverval for how long a "recently joined" member is getting a badge, no option to display badges based on usergroups (not just if someone has moderator permissions) etc. Also the "hand icon" for recently joined members has received quite some negative feedback. It is misinterpreted for restrictions being in place instead of a waving hand (what I suppose it should be taken
  5. Then however the whole reputation system becomes obsolete. I like the idea that users have a reputation score based on feedback they get by other members. The real issue with negative reactions is that most users take it personally. They are not able to distinguish between content that one disagrees with and the user itself (which one can still "like"). I always wanted to see an extra option, allowing me to use, but not to show certain reactions (e.g. negative ones) at all. This way the user who received a negative reaction does not even notice -- or maybe just notices that his/her r
  6. Partially. It might send an email, if user X creates a topic in forum Y... (Can it though?), but what I am looking for is more Invision Community specific/working with data and values of Invision Community: "If custom profile field X of user Y has value Z, then do..." "If file X has been downloaded by user Y then do..." "If user X is member of club Y and posts a topic in forum Z then do..."
  7. One thing that is really missing in Invision Community is automation. Sure, we have group promotions (which have, sadly, very limited functionality), but that is about it. I'd love to see a feature, that allowes to create scripts that do stuff automatically. Be it a user that posts in a certain forum and gets a notification, a user that downloads a certain file and gets a group promotion, a user that updates their profile picture and gets whatever... With a flexible system anything should be possible. It would be very helpful to let stuff happen in your community without the need to actua
  8. If you are referring to my statement: I was writing about improvements within the 4.x releases. Pluralization is great. The same goes for the possibility to swap positioning of %s placeholders. And you are correct that with 4.5 there are some improvements regarding language string handling. But regarding translating the software, at least for me, the real problems lie somewhere else. Fractured language strings are just an example. Those cause so many problems: grammar-wise, reference-wise... Two more have just been mentioned above: Then there is the usage of "%s's". Sometimes
  9. It is a huge problem that many phrases consist of language string fragments. While this works in English, it is a serious problem for many other languages. Sadly the translation section of the software has not seen many improvements in the past (and I highly doubt it will at all in the 4.x lifecycle). I hope that for version 5.x IPS talks to some foreign language speakers to get some feedback before a new translation system will be created.
  10. ...which, again, is still a great suggestion, which I do support. I highly doubt that this will ever make it into the 4.x series, but I am pretty sure version 5 is already being worked on - at least planning/gathering concepts. So it cannot hurt to renew the general interest in seeing additional moderation features being implemented in the software.
  11. Even seven years later, this is still a (very) good suggestion!
  12. No guarantee, but very likely. A great addition, especially for support forums, would be an option to jump from staff post to staff post within a topic. And an icon on the forums list indicating that a staff member has posted in a topic.
  13. Looks good! Nothing super spectacular, but a very nice update for 2020. I also like the new header. Will there be an option to make it sticky? Can't wait to see this in a live environment (this site). 🙂
  14. A huge step in the right direction! I love the fact that the Forum App is very powerful, but the software needs more flexibility regarding content creation in general. More CMS features (since the Forum App is already great). 🙂 Back to the Page Builder Widgets: Maybe you want to add a WYSIWYG editor to the text area, which would make content creation a lot easier. And I hope those widgets can be displayed based on group permissions. Sadly you never clicked the visibility tab... Is that one for permissions?
  15. Will it be possible to make categories available to certain usergroups only? Right now blogs do not have much permission-based settings. On each blog level, it is either everyone or certain users only (not even usergroups). When there will be categories, permission settings (similar to categories in Pages) will be even more important. Edit: Just saw this, so yeah, same question I guess. 🙂
