  1. I think I like that decision (not sure yet), but I expect people to ask what to do for points. At the moment, when you click on the dropdown menu in the top right corner to go to your profile, settings etc., you see a very prominent bar, which indicates the progress towards the next rank. RIght below that it says "X points until your next rank". Maybe a site displaying what do to for points isn't the worst idea? It could be optional (an option to turn it on/off). And/or: Badges could have an additional option to show/hide the point logic on said site. Then the user can decide which rule/badge to reveal.
  2. I actually like the current look. There are already so many things centered in the postbit.
  3. Are the badges that you show both in the video and here on this site default ones that come with 4.6? Will there be a pre-designed page where all the available ranks and their requirements are being listed? Can a user earn multiple badges? If yes, which one shows up in the postbit? Can the user decide?
  4. FINALLY! I love that these will be core features now.
  5. Finally someone who supports this feature in their core software! Great addition and much needed especially for support forums.
  6. Maybe I am blind and do not recognize an option that already exists, but how can I restore older revisions of content that has been edited by a user? Example: A user posts an answer in a topic. After 5 minutes he edits it. Now I want to restore the older content. I can see the revision history, but there is no option like "jump back to this revision". It seems all I can do is to 1.) open the revision history, 2.) Ctrl+C the content that I want to restore, 3.) close the revision history, 4.) edit the post of the user 5.) paste the older content and then 6.) save the changes. Is there an easier way?
  7. Thank you very much. That seemed to work on my test installation. I wonder though why IPS is not offering such functionality in the AdminCP? 🤔 Some button to remove orphaned language strings, or even better: Just remove them within the update process.
  8. Over the years (since version 4.0) so many language strings have become obsolete. However they still show up in the translation tools. How can these be removed? Just an example:
  9. 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.)
  10. I feel the same. I deactivated this feature just because of the fact that everyone can see it.
  11. 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 for). Suggestions: Please add a usergroup-based options: Display profile badge YES|NO (If YES, then 2nd option:) Edit profile badge: Background color (color picker) Icon Remove badge from moderator permissions (not needed anymore with the above option based on usergroups) For recently joined members, please add an option to choose for how many days the joined-recently-badge will be displayed.
  12. No, I am talking about the ability to see the block. Pre 4.5.x the screenshot above is what I was able to see as both being logged in as an admin and as the user. Now (4.5.2) the screenshot is what I can see as the user. As an admin (visiting the user's profile page) I cannot see the block anymore.
  13. ?? A user has always been able to see that block on his profile page.
  14. I was under the impression, that if you visit a profile as an admin, you always see the block, whether it being activated or not. If the latter, you could activate it. But no, the block (if deactivated) is only visible to the member itself, not to anybody else. Not sure if that has changed with v4.5... I am pretty sure as an admin I was always able to see the block in earlier versions. Thanks for the linked plugin! I consider using it for activating this block globally.
  15. Currently I have this weird situation: On some users' profile pages, I can see the block with last profile visitors (activated or deactivated). Now I realized that on some profiles the block does not show up at all. Even as an admin, I cannot see it. Is there a setting in the AdminCP that I might have togged on or off that handles the profile visitors block? Also, is there a setting to activate/deactivate said block for all users globally?
  16. 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 reaction score went down by 1, but cannot see where exactly the -1 has been given. Of course this can be confusing ("Why did my score go down?"). In that case the option could work slightly different: Display the reaction, but do not show the user who has given the reaction.
  17. However that did only work after I uploaded the 4.5.2 package from the Client's Area manually in the first place. 🤔
  18. In 4.4 I was able to allow/disallow anonymous logins (AdminCP > System > Login & Registration). Now in 4.5.1 that option seems to be gone? Even the AdminCP Search does not help (no results). All I can find is a new group option (Allowed, Forced, Disallow), but how does that work exactly? Well, it has a description, but when I click the link there, it simply takes me to the page mentioned above - with no option at all. Maybe I am stupid here, but what am I doing wrong? 🤔
  19. 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..."
  20. 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 actually handle everything manually. While I hope to see such functionality being added to Invision Community: I know about a plugin that added such functionality once, but it seems as if it is not available anymore. Does anything similar exist? (Seached for it, did not find anything.)
  21. 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 changing it to "... of %s" does work. Usually it does not. I am sure a flexible translation system is a huge undertaking. So all I am saying is that if there are plans to improve the system in a future release, talking to foreign language speakers in the first place will be very valuable to get feedback regarding much needed improvements.
  22. 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.
  23. ...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.
  24. Even seven years later, this is still a (very) good suggestion!
