  1. Just a question, since I need a system to reward people that join my new website, Is it possible to add the new member to an specific group when he/she accepts the invitation and registers ?
  2. And, just like I explain here: If you create a blog in a club section, only the leader of the club can write. It's not a collaborative blog effort.
  3. Yes, I wanted to be through , just in case.
  4. I think I have detected a small bug. I will detail it. I created a club. Call it "New club" I created a forum in the club. Call it "New Forum" I added content ( maybe this is not related but I added 2 topics ) Moved the 2 topics to another forum, (not in the clubs) I deleted the forum "New Forum" But, the "New Forum" still appears in the list, not only for the group leader, but also for members. You can click on the link and it redirects to the club main section, since the forum no longer exists. I tried to clear cache using the support tool, just in case it was something stuck there, but the issue still there. The bottom line is that when you delete a forum in a club, it does not disappear. Using version 4.4.3
  5. Achieving a new group level can, sometimes, include a series of "prezies" linked and deserved with such rank. Sometimes users are unaware of that. When members pay a subscription that allows them to have his own gallery, his own blog or his own club, it's very possible that they immediately start creating the content they paid for. It makes sense. I think the "group promotion" tool in the ACP should also allow the admin to display those achievements, adding a window similar to the "profile completion", but warning or forcing or suggesting the user to create the new content they are allowed now. Gallery is an example, but it could be a club, a file, a blog or posting a new a forum section, even a third party application or a database. What I say is that "group promotions" could include more options at the end of the process like suggesting users to create or explore the new assets. Right now, group promotions only moves the user to the next group level, but it doesn't even warn him/her and "profile completion" doesn't allow admins to suggest users to create content like galleries, database entries or blog entries, for example. It can be useful, especially when you are encouraging users to create content. A rule could be... if a user reaches the "gold group" they will be forced to create their own club or their own blog or their own gallery .. or one of those 3 things. What I try to say is if you encourage participation and you have a user that reaches a milestone, then the tools should encourage him/her to keep working with the new features. Right now, unless you use a complex set of conditions in the "rule application", most of the milestones are silent.
  6. Sorry to be the one asking for more features (I hate it,) but ... would it be possible to add the option to allow members of the club to write blog entries for the blogs in clubs ? Right now, only the club leader (or any moderator of the website) can write in a blog included in a club.
  7. I know the blog application is probably the least used of all applications, but I'm not asking a whole rework; only what the Galley application already has or does for clubs. For what I have seen, right now, only club leaders or users with moderator permissions in clubs can write in a blog inside a club. This is the most restrictive permission possible. This is also the case, even for public clubs and it means that the blog application ignores the type of club and has the same permissions. Galleries in clubs have the option to decide who can post images in that gallery: the owner, any club member or anybody. I think blogs should have the same options enabled. so that members of the club could post blog entries if the club leader agrees. Edit to add.. Oh! πŸ˜ͺ only an admin can add a picture cover in a club blog. πŸ€·πŸΌβ€β™‚οΈ and blog cover pictures can't be added while creating the blog. First you create the blog, then you add the cover. This explains why most of my community blogs have no cover at all.
  8. https://coverfriends.org/landing-page/ Website is not working as a guest visitor. I have been trying to check this template for 4 or 5 days now.
  9. Hi ! Would it be possible for a future upgrade to add an option to copy the "messages" of the topic as an extra data ? Messages are those boxes with an editor you can add at the top of the topic. I use that feature a lot, with 1, 2 and sometimes 3 messages in a topic, and It would be very helpful. Thank you
  10. Not stealing. The idea is to use the contact form on their website, introduce yourself and investigate the option to convert their community and merge it into yours. It's all about being polite; saying something like "my software is better and my niche is probably bigger, so you would fit and keep your independence." Many of these guys have issues, like poor servers, poor software and as Joel says, there is always something you can offer that they don't have. In my case, most of these websites have such a small niche, that they would fit perfectly into a club. For example, one of the communities has 4 forums and 1 of them is for the rules. What my community need is users and what they probably need is infrastructure .. so this is more like a mutual agreement. ok .. I thought you could only use the migration tools at the beginning. I didn't know converters could import data from anywhere. I think the most difficult part for me will be to convince them to move, since I'm newer and they are older in this niche. My expertise and reputation is based on adult communities, nothing to do with this new niche I'm interested in. Since I'm the rookie, they might be afraid that I get tired and close. And there is also this thing when you have a bigger idea, you can easily look arrogant if you use the wrong words. For now I plan to work for 2 months and start contacting them.
  11. Hey @Joel R I'm considering contacting old communities based on php nuke and phpbb with a similar niche than mine to offer the possibility to work inside my project using clubs. However, I have the feeling that the first question they will ask is, can we export what we have already published? at least the main topics? Have they ever said something like this ? and not sure if that is possible, I guess not.
  12. Hi @opentype I'm aware I'm not always very smart when dealing with "pages stuff". I've been considering to buy this system, but I have a doubt. Imagine I want to review items in Mode#2. For example, a service. Can I have categories on the right side of the page to sort them out? Let me add an example. Imagine I want to review concerts. I'm the "expert" and I review the concerts I pay for. So I have/create categories, 12 categories that belong to months. January, February etc. So in January I create a record for a review with all the data from a concert. Well, in fact let's say I review 3 concerts in january. 2 concerts in february, 5 concerts in March etc.. Visitors should click on the category right side and select a month, and all the reviews of that month would appear listed. Would this be possible ? Maybe it's obvious, but I have serious issues with pages, it's difficult for me. Thank you.
  13. When I click on a letter without content starting by the letter, I get the standard blank page of the empty forum. So far normal, but the letters bar disappears. In order to filter again, I have to click backwards on the browser. I tried with the standard template and it does the same thing. Would it be possible to keep the letter bar visible when there are no results ? for future upgrades at least. It's a little annoying but also not very important since most of us using this plugin will have lots of topics to sort.
  14. I agree 100% with you in this point. Merge should work in both ways. You should be allowed to decide which title you want to keep from both topics. That would make things smoother. Let me say that in one of my communities I used to merge a lot of content. I never had any issue, but I have to admit that none of those topics had a lot of replies and 99% of the times you keep the old topic, not the new one. So no backlinks lost. In order to avoid that, the system should create some kind or redirect topic, like the ones created when you move a topic from a forum to another one. During the merge process, the system should ask if you want to create a permanent relink.
  15. Hi Everyone! It wasn't til last year after summer that I took a deep look into the emoji world. For me, emojis were something related to board discussions and emotions, you know: πŸ˜‚ πŸ˜” happy, sad etc. For more daring and sexy conversations, the cats: 😸😻 Then, after summer I started to reorganize my forum written instructions a little bit and suddenly I understood how useful those pesky emojis could be. I changed this: For this: or sometimes this: The bottom line is that I could highlight what it was really important. I could stress the important rules while also listing the less important. Visually it made a lot of sense. By the end of last year I also decided to make some forum rules more visible and I realized again how useful those emojis could be. It's obvious that β›” means forbidden and ⚠️ means "be careful" Another interesting thing about emojis is that you can adapt the size for different situations and use the emojis more or less important. More or less rude. This year I finished my newsletter to the community signing like this: Another interesting thing about emojis is that you can add them to Category Titles on the forum, you can add them to Forum Names, you can add them to the Forum Descriptions and you can also use them with the Forum rules, plus the blocks & widgets with a text editor. And yes, you can make your community look cheese if you abuse them, but I think they are a nice resource that you can use to highlight important details and to escape from boring texts that nobody reads. An Emoji in the right position can make a difference. I thought someone could use this tips, specially the ones with β›” & ⚠️ If you have any more tricks using emojis, I like to know. Please share them If you have or there is a reason for not using emojis this way, please also let me know too.
