  1. Easy Mode Editor doesn't allow you to change a color brightness. That makes it useless for me, unfortunately. Also, there are some elements which can't be recolored using Easy Mode Editor or affect other elements. Hope this will be improved in IPS 4.3.

    As for me, I would really appreciate if IPS provide several default color schemes with a perfect combination of colors.

  2. @Maxxius but in the official blog I see the latest two posts:


    Invision Community 4.2

    May 16

    Invision Community 4.2 is now available as a beta in the client area. The final release will be later in summer 2017.




    Update on Invision Community 4.2

    July 5

    We are working hard to get Invision Community 4.2 ready to go!


    Be sure to keep an eye on announcements for the full release expected in the next 3 - 4 weeks.


    And nothing else.

    I have to voice disagreement. In the current atmosphere of online services, any hint of a data breach can be overwhelmingly crippling. Being able to "double lock the door" with accounts that have elevated access to the forums, even if its just mod tools (which can allow access to confidential conversations), is extremely helpful. 2FA is now a web standard for services that deal in any sort of personal information, which many of our communities do. This is a welcome addition, and the way it was implemented by IPS was extremely thoughtful in terms of the various use cases. When you say very few people need this, I'm not sure what group you are talking about. Any community of any significant size is going to be targeted at some point or another for vulnerabilities. It could be as simple as a mod who reused a password and account name from another company who got hacked and had usernames and passwords dumped who gets exploited. This helps protect against that, and I'm grateful for it being in IPS4.


    You can't help people who use the same passwords on all services because there are a lot of less secure websites than IPS these users are registered on. The only way to help them - force using autogenerated passwords, but it's not too user-friendly.

    The only thing deserves 2FA in IPS I can imagine is Commerce module or an admin account. I bet less than 1% of IPS users would use it while significantly more users need faster forums, better usability, and fewer bugs. A lot of good suggestions are totally ignored while such questionable features are implemented every release.

  4. Most of these bugs are very specific. It's hard to face them. Bugs in IPS 4 appear when you are trying to do common things. Right now try to find something which has results (for, example, word "test"). After that insert something which doesn't have results into the search field and push Enter button. Voila!


    It's a very common scenario. I don't understand how the developers test their software if they overlook such mistakes. It looks like IPS doesn't have testers and has a lack of developers.

  5. Bugs will always exist. That's right, but the difference between good and bad products is in their number. Try to find bugs, for example, in free and open source phpBB (2, 3 or 3.1). You will never face one.

    IPS continues making new features instead of finishing and polishing previous for the sake of marketing.

    Guys, if you don't have enough resources to maintain your own product, make your Git public and let other enthusiasts help you. May be in this case your customers finally get a high quality product. Because now it looks like many bugs in IPS 4 will never be fixed, like it was in IPS 3. Yes, IPS 3 still has bugs! Don't you think it's ridiculous?
