  1. I'm disappointed nobody actually used #hastagtical #hashtagsfordays #justiceforhashtags #hashtageverything Ya'll need to up your hashtagging skills! 😀
  2. Tagging @Daniel F, he's talked about a 'tour' before. The difficulty with these kinds of systems is that every community is different. You may launch with the forums, but another community may launch with a custom homepage. I think the best thing you can do within the ecosystem are things like a slider, profile completion, or info boxes that only show to new registrants.
  3. You can request additional features in hsi support topic.
  4. The oAuth 2 integration in Invision Community doesn't include syncing of any sort. You could potentially check out wordPress SSO by @stoo2000 in the IPS Marketplace to see if he can sync profile pictures.
  5. Make side you don't have adblock turned on your own browser! (Or test in incognito mode)
  6. What version of IPS are you using? If you're able to reliably reproduce the issue, then please submit a ticket that can duplicate the double posting.
  7. One trick to not look like a ghost town: Instead of using the block for Online Users, use the Members block. Show the last X users, sorted by Last Activity. Then simply name the block as Online Users or Recent Members or whatever you want.
  8. @rebraf is as close as you will get to a Tier 3 IPS developer in the IPS Marketplace, so you can consider his files to be on par with core development.
  9. IPS already contains a Member Overview via the Leaderboard > Top Members. (The Leaderboard - and all of its sub-sections - is probably not talked about enough as it's a very powerful source of information and trends across multiple aspects of the community: time, content, and members). You can link to the Top Members tab via https://invisioncommunity.com/topmembers/
  10. You're welcome to search the Marketplace for Discord integration. There are reviews and links to the support topic where you can investigate more.
  11. IPS contains a simple referral system for members. You can test it out by registering on InvisionAlpha.com with my referral code: https://invisionalpha.com/?&_rid=21 You can potentially investigate third-party files in the Marketplace that enhance member referrals and / or commerce selling : Referrals by @Fosters -- https://invisioncommunity.com/files/file/8360-referrals/ Sales Portal Pro by @Spanner -- https://invisioncommunity.com/files/file/8123-sd-sales-portal-pro-classifieds/ On a final note, I can tell you that any affiliate system from the IPS ecoysystem won't be nearly the same level of features or as developed as something like WooCommerce. However, you can link your WordPress installation + Invision Community using the built-in OAuth bridge:
  12. I think you're going to start to see a growing distinction between Invision Community and other legacy forums. While there are plenty of hobbyist forums on IPS as well, you'll see that the future of the platform - its features, vision, and audience - is going to be driven by "professional" communities who treat it a little more seriously. This won't be an overnight change, but you're already starting to see enterprise-level features like Zapier Integration and Search Insights being built into Invision Community. As IPS develops more enterprise-level features, it elevates all of our abilities -- whether you're a hobbyist, professional, brand, or corporate -- to compete at another level.
  13. You need to find a way to differentiate yourself beyond just 'conversation.' You need to offer compelling value above and beyond -- whether it be online tools, a sense of community, branding control, news, educational resources, or data that those platforms can't offer.
  14. As far as I'm aware, no Marketplace plugin. You can request in Customization Requests. Just curious, can you explain what's the benefit of opening all links in a topic? Are you using topics as a reference list of some sort?
  15. There are enhancements coming in Invision Community 4.5 that can help you design a homepage. You will need the Pages application:
