  1. Zapier Enchantments for self-hosted communities was the right word choice, though
  2. Just 2 features, you might be interested adding when updating this application.😇🙏 1. Possibility to use the "Linked accounts - post as" for links, but also for the comments & reviews section (if you have the plugin installed, of course) 2. The possibility to include the categories in the main forum board like "Club Cards on Forum index" plugin.
    It's not a game changer, but it's a must-have for every blog application owner. It works as described. I can confirm that blogs have a complete different taste on the front page with the block widget. The widget is more appealing and it's easier to redirect users to the blog entries. It's a simple idea that invision should have added by default to the Blog App long time ago. I'm not using the default theme and it also works perfect with my theme. I'd like to thank ReyDev for his time developing this plugin.
  3. Hey Adriano, I recently updated my website to 4.5 and, for some unknown reason, this application can not be updated. It says something that the ID is already in use, but I do not recall installing it on another website. If I ever did (which is possible, but I do not remember it) , it was to test something about a year ago in a website that no longer exists. This application was always meant to be running on the website where I can not update. Is there something I can do ? I don't mind paying again if I have to, but I don't want to lose the links I already have on my website. let me know how to proceed. sorry for the hassle 😔 it's not urgent.
  4. Hi Martin. I still have a 4.4 community installed and I could test the previous version which is free. However, in the free version you can only add one location per category and user. In the paid version description it's not clear if you can add more than 1 location per category and user. Is it possible ? It says "Create unlimited marker groups with unlimited markers for member meet-ups, exhibits, landmarks,.." I want to have a category called: "Favourite Stores", and each member should be able to add as many stores as they want in the map for that category. Someone could add 5 stores, while other users might only add 1 or 2. Or I could create a category where I would add 100 locations.
  5. There was an old third party mod for 4.2, If I recall. I was using it and paid for it. then ... poof 🤷‍♂️ You could click on a topic and be redirected somewhere else. And here we are stuck again with another interesting feature that nobody wants to code. 🙄💨 or update

    Hey @Adriano , I have 2 questions about this application. When I import a movie, where is it saved? Do you grab the info from TMDb and add it to a table in the IPS database ? or it shows the info directly from the TMDb database ? I say this because if one day the API is not working, my website would lose all the info. If the movie info is saved in the IPS database then is it possible to update it ? For example, if there is a new season for a series. Same question for the pictures. Do they link to the TMDb website to show the picture of the movie ? or the thumbnail is copied and saved in my own server ? Thank you
  7. 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 ?
  8. I use 1 application that allows me to select clubs using the block included. You can select all (forums and club forum), or then select club forum and forums one by one. https://invisioncommunity.com/files/file/7436-bim-topic-thumbnail/ You can also use: https://invisioncommunity.com/files/file/8805-clubs-forums-on-forums-index/ or this one for club awareness: https://invisioncommunity.com/files/file/8924-clubs-card-on-forums-index/
  9. 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.
  10. What am I missing here ? I never cared about this h2, h3 thing til I started to deal with blogs in different communities. Now a few bloggers have asked me the ability to add h2 and h3 titles in the editor, but I can't find the option, unless I grant them html privileges in the editor? Is this something we have all forgotten? Even wordpress has the option to insert a h3 line and others, in the editor. I don't think the website could be vulnerable if we allow users to use those tags, right?
  11. Yes, I wanted to be through , just in case.
  12. 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
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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! 😪 only an admin can add a picture cover in a club blog. 🤷🏼‍♂️ 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.
  16. 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.
  17. 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
  18. 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.
  19. You can have your moderator group, and specific users with moderator permissions in specific forums. When you add an account as moderator in the AdminCP you can specify all the permissions for that account in particular. It's very very useful for communities that focus on different content and require different moderators with different levels.
  20. Yes. You need to create a new moderator in the AdminCP Members - Staff - Moderators Add a new user with restricted permissions. My advice. Unselect all, and then enable whatever you need. In the forums sections, you can decide which forums he/she can moderate and exactly how many features are enabled. for example, you can have a moderator that can not delete content, but can hide it.
  21. 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.
  22. 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.
  23. Hi ! Having problems with "Display Posts in Forums in Newest to Oldest Order?" feature. it works if you select it for all forums, but if you select only a few, the data is not stored. When you close the window, and click on the widget again, no forum is selected. Using latest version 4.3.6
