    Social Search

    Track and display guest and member searches throughout your community! Two front-side widgets! Display recent searches, Display Popular Search Terms (90/30/7 Day tabs) Optional block on search results page displays the same! Search Wall! Menu add-able custom page showing up to 1000 of your communities most recent searches. Text or configurable colored tag blocks! ACP Dashboard widget graphing last 90 days of search activity, guest/member search ratios, and more. ACP Search Ledger! All those stored searches. Browsable and terms are quick-searchable! ACP Statistics! Term, word, and tag use tracked over 90, 30, and 7 day periods! Know what your users are looking for right now! Tracking consists of recording every search made via the quicksearch box (usually located in the main menu) or via the advanced search form. Unintentional searches such as redirects to search results pages via login/logout, visiting member profile pages, or viewing streams are excluded.
    Since this application has a substantial front-end presence every search is run through the profanity filters as a safety precaution (regardless if you are using them or not - if you haven't configured them, then nothing will be found of course and all continues onward). Searches that trigger this are discarded from being recorded but will continue to work for the user of course.
    For the time being, only whether a guest or a member has made the search is stored. I'm... not necessarily against tracking member searches and associating them with members, its a trivial thing of course... just that I'd rather hear some thoughts on the matter before hand from end users and site admins. Customs always available regardless. Just ask.
    Directly stored for now are timestamp, term searched for, tags searched for, author searched for, and vs. or search, titles only or everything, the complete search URL sent, and guest or member status. The direct storage of additional variables such as app filters, club filters, date filters, etc. are all possible but for initial release have been put aside. Note that storing the complete URL means regardless of whether I stored those bits of information separately in the database, the search remains "intact" and complete with those additional variables good to go!
    Your site users via the widget, search wall, and search block on the advanced search page, will now be able to see the last x-amount of searches and run them themselves with just a click!
    The links on the front end for each individual search display the complete search term, any tags searched for, and any single author the search was limited to. They can be configured to display as just text or with a randomly chosen (but shape-able randomness via your settings choices) background color:

     
    Front Side Widgets:
         
    The above just with simple term searches. Widget displays just text links. I tried colored blocks but it got a bit busy so removed for now. By request, Version 3 adds a popular search terms widget. Note that the data behind this is ran via task, and that updates every 10 minutes. New installs and upgraders will either need to manually run the task to populate the widget with data or wait at least ten minutes for the task to run. Keep in mind popular terms needs two or more matching instances to be counted.
     
    Advanced Search/Results Page Block:

    Just text here as well. Colored tags distracts from actual page content. This can be above the search term line or below. This block and the front widget are data-buffered via a task that runs every few minutes so you will not get a performance hit on busy sites - the searches displayed will be a few minutes back of course as a result.
     
    Search Wall:

    Don't mind the colors too much. This is all configurable in the ACP including limiting the random color generator to limit itself to just a few colors so you can better match your site/brand colors. Plain text available as well of course. This page is entirely optional. After installation, just go to your ACP menu manager and add it to your site menu to make it available. Or not. Data here is a live, up-to-the-moment view, not cached. Don't mind the spam, I had to generate a lot of searches for testing :). And seriously, you can craft the color blocks - ignore the clown car above. You can roll with grayscale, or blue shades, or blue AND gray shades, etc... We can also get better iteration on this in future releases.
     
    Dashboard Widget:

    90-day graph, guest to member ratio (or percentage if you like). 90 day search-per-day average, and today's count (90 day graph does NOT include the current day's searches). That and a handful of recent searches for you to run if you like (not displayed in this image). This data is live generated.
     
    Search Ledger:

    Feel free to browse via the ACP all your stored searches! In settings you control how long the searches are stored for. From 90 days back to forever! Options to remove searches from the database if needed along with a detail view right there on the right side.
     
    Statistics:

    Terms, words, and tags all collated and broken down into member, guest, and all counts in addition to 90/30/7 day periods! You now know at a glance what your community is looking for!
    See support topic for further discussion on this. 
     
    Pricing:
    $40 and $10 every 6 months. Feel free to skip renews unless you need any new features or bug fixes, but also feel free to keep hitting those renews - always nice to be appreciated!
     
    Support/Requests:
    MP topic forthcoming. Otherwise shoot me a PM.

    Redirect on Login

    As requested. Usually you can accomplish what you need by setting whatever IPS application you like as the default under the Applications menu in the ACP but apparently there are still instances where this may not accomplish what is needed.
    This is nothing fancy - you must enter the complete URL in settings. Be sure not to copy/paste the URL from your browser address bar that includes stuff like CSRF= and so on. Keep it simple and you'll be fine.
    Tested on 4.3.6, probably fine on all of the 4.3 versions, and likely on 4.2 as well (but that is, and will remain, untested by me)

    Awesome Member Hovercards

    Punch up those member hovercards! Full-panel backgrounds! Joined and last visited times front and center! Text color changes based on online, offline status - anonymous members are accounted for too! New "Yearbook Quote" feature! Let your members flash some personality and drive member engagement! Profile Fields available for use on the hovercard! Can disable the hover feature and turn it into a click feature - makes these cards available to tablet and phone users! This mod swaps out the usual member hovercard for a new template; one that emphasizes appearance and personality instead of just dumping profile information in a list which they can get by just visiting the member's profile anyways. The screenshots tell all!
    What's there?
    Joined Date, Last Visited (color changed based on online/offline status), Name, Primary Member Group (colored if group colors have been set), Yearbook Quote, Reputation, Content Count (as posts)
    Where's that image coming from?
    That's the member's coverphoto! If they don't have one the Invision Community default profile background stuff is used.
    New Yearbook Quote Feature?
    Although I debated sticking in a member's status update as the centered text, there are too many reasons not to, including not everyone is using status updates, often times those updates are throw-away notes about nothing, updated rarely, and so on. With a specific quote feature your members have the opportunity to flash some personality - be it describing themselves, Tinder-like blurbs, using a quote from a movie or video game, and so on.
    Why not use the About Me feature from the profile?
    That's a full editor field - images and lots of other things can go in there. This is meant to be simple and direct.
    Can I change that name to something else instead of Yearbook Quote?
    Yep! In settings. Hoverboard Quote, Hovercard Quote, Quote, Say Something, Tinder Blurb, whatever... Call it what you want!
    Is this stuff also on the profile pages?
    Yes - it's also where they add/edit it. Click the gear icon to have at it.
    Can I use the Yearbook Quote feature but not the new fancy hovercards?
    Sure. You can toggle on/off the use of the new hovercards in settings. To completely disable everything just toggle the plugin off in the ACP.
    Other settings?
    Limit the quote length from the old Twitter limit of 120 characters up to 1024 characters. The last visited text has color applied to it when the user is online, configure the color here. Some translatable strings.

    Profile Fields Too?
    You bet! Select which ones to pass through to the template (admin-only and editor fields excluded at the moment). See the support topic for how to customize the display of these.
    What are "Click Cards"?
    You can actually disable the hover functionality of these member hovercards. When you do that, users will need to click the member avatar to trigger the display of the card. When the cards are set to hover-mode, they appear when the mouse cursor hovers over a member avatar and these will, since it is a mouse hover action, only appear to desktop users - tablet and phone users never see these cards. When you toggle the cards to click functionality that covers tapping and thse will now display to tablet and phone users just fine. This is a usability decision to be made by you and you alone. If you ask for my opinion I'd consider how many of my visitors are tablet/phone based before enabling this feature. If you have more mobile than desktop, go for it! You can always turn this off later.
    Moderation?
    Of course. If a member has not entered a quote yet, the box will appear only that member and no one else (mods and admins included), with text telling that member to add a quote. Once a quote is entered, the quote will appear to everyone AND mods and admins will have to power to also edit those quotes. Mod permission is being able to edit profiles, if a mod has that, they can edit these. And yes, mod/admin actions on these items will appear in the Moderators Log in case you have some mods/admins deciding to mess with people instead of actually correctly moderating inappropriate content (whatever that is for your community...)
    Anything in the ACP?
    Other than the plugin settings and entries in the Moderators Log, no, nothing in the ACP Member view or anything like that. All moderation takes place on a member's profile page in the Yearbook Quote block. If you have a member who continually abuses this quote feature by inputting stuff you don't want, the solution isn't adding more permissions to disable this feature on a member by member basis - the solution is to ban the member. 
    Anonymous Users?
    Yes, accounted for. The Last Visited text will always say yesterday (if consensus is to change it to something else I can do that in a later version) and it will never have the online colors applied. Anon users can browse with little worry of being "found out".
    Customs Available?
    Sure! Some communities may want some community-specific information to appear on the hovercard. Not a problem. Expect to pay a (nominal one time fee) if it is something that can benefit all users of this mod in which case you are sponsoring a new feature for everyone (and paying to get it done now instead waiting for me to get around to it) or a (nominal one-time fee X 2) for a mod specific to your community only, provided it is doable.
    What's next?
    I have another template in mind but I wanted to get what I thought was the best out in the open first. Have an integration or two as well bubbling about. That's for later though.
     
    Notes
    If you have other mods that push something to the member hovercards there is probably a 100% chance that this mod will not accommodate them as it is an entirely new template. 4.3 compatible - maybe 4.2 but have not tested.

    Kitchen Sink

    All the things you want changed or restored in one single plugin! Everything including as they say...
    Restores topic stats! Topic authors can always edit first posts! Customize the breadcrumb! Remove the Create menu! Better IPS update notifications! Change the lightbox! More!
    Why?
    There are many small things with the IPS suite that need to be customize-able or restored from the 3x series. I could write a bajillion single-use plugins or I can put some effort into it, pile them all into one plugin, and make a few bucks for the work (and she is wrapping up her second cancer in three years so yes, money good...)
    New in KS 23:
    Full sweep, see support topic. Lost all the screenshots... again... Uploaded just settings for now, not all settings displayed due to some settings not in an enabled state. New in KS 22:
    IPS Internal Embeds Formatting Options! Remove the author header, remove the image block, add a border. Patched Searchlight feature for uncommon FURL/IPS Pages conflict. Searchlight totally reworked as a result, also can now be toggled on/off in settings. KS css file now renamed aa_ks.css - pushing it to the first in line (or close to it) postion in your COMPILED custom css file. New in KS 21:
    Fully 4.3 compatible! Reworked Javascript bits, ditched a library no longer needed. Patches setting search results order setter for 4.3. Misc. whatevers. New in KS 20:
    Final 4.2.X version! Bug fixes for Forum Posts Sort Order and Searchlight function. Add Member avatar/name to movie menu option. New in KS 19:
    Searchlight returns! Search results content gets search term highlighting! That's a restored 3x feature. Customizable too! Set the default sort order for search results: relevancy or newest. Sort posts in topics by Desc (newest first) order. Other stuff I forget...
     
    So this includes...?
    Global:
    Customize the breadcrumb! Remove the last element, swap out the home icon, etc. Control appearance of Mark Site Read and Unread Content (just words, just icons, or move them out of the breadcrumb to the user menu). Square up the appearance of the search entry area. Customize the light box! Full screen effect? White instead of black? Yes! Customize the error page. Change the FA icon, swap it out  for an image, more! Enable a compact star rating display! Userbar:
    Disable the Create menu. Replace the Create menu appearance with just a FontAwesome icon. I recommend fa-pencil. Remove all horizontal separators in the userbar. Change the member menu dropdown link. Leave it as the default avatar and member name, just member name, or just avatar. Calendar:
    When you scroll down, the view title (day, month, week, etc.) is pinned to the very top edge of the browser. Adds padding to make it look much better. Square up those calendar and event tags from those rounded monstrosities. Make the cover photo header area for events much bigger (larger event title font too). Forums and Topics:
    Restores the 3x series topic count statistic on forum index views. Yes, it's back! Can choose to display post count, topic count or both on forum index views. Add a locked icon badge in front of topic titles in topic view when a topic is locked (similar to pinned and featured posts). Change start new topic, moderator option, etc. links in topic view to appear as buttons instead of text links. Disable reply to topic button if you like (no one really uses it anymore...) Fully customize-able new posts separator in topic view. Set some basic info in custom.css and then use the full editor here to add content!  Change number of topics listed per page on forum view (same as one of my free plugins). Disable both the quote and multi-quote buttons in post view to force users to select specific text to quote instead of entire posts. First posts:
    Allow all topic authors to edit their first posts regardless of any edit time restrictions in the ACP. You can even configure this on a per-forum basis! Post view:
    A bunch of structural options. Hide the multi-quote button. Move the quote and/or edit buttons under the options menu. Change the options menu to a single gear icon. IPS Upgrades:
    For admins with permissions to view upgrade announcements this replaces the full page width upgrade announcement header with a pulsing download icon in the userbar. Clicking it displays a popup with the complete upgrade information.
    (The pulse is sped up for the gif. It's slower on normal upgrades; security upgrades will pulse faster but not this fast (and they pulse red!)
    I've probably forgotten some stuff. And there is more to come too!
     
    Questions
    Can I ask for something to be changed or included?
    Yes, absolutely! That's kind of the whole point of this. There are some basic rules though. If I think it is too involved, or I think that once I start it that it would be better off as it's own plugin I'll pass. Just ask in the support topic and we'll go from there. I decide in the end, you may or may not like my decisions...
    What if IPS changes something and...
    If they add something into the suite that I fixed/added here then it will probably be removed from Kitchen Sink. No need to duplicate functionality. If something in this plugin breaks due to a change in the IPS Suite I'll of course try to fix it if it is fixable. Or I might remove it until it can be fixed; I expect things to change over the years - you should too.
    Seems to be forums heavy...
    Yep. I can only target what I'm most familiar with. If you need something with the other applications speak up! The focus of this plugin is on the Core, Calendar, and Forums. I can fold in some stuff from the other apps if they are small things but otherwise I've got something else in the works for Gallery, Commerce, and Downloads (yes, another all in one...probably).
    Anything on the ACP side?
    No but... Spacious ACP! Get that! 
    This <feature> isn't working on my site!
    If you have custom.css that conflicts, or your custom theme has moved elements around, and so on, there is not a lot I can do. I can give you some help in the support topic but the further you (or theme authors) move away from the default IPS structure the harder it will be for plugins to work. Most of Kitchen Sink should work for everyone. I do not support modified themes but I'll lend a hand as I can time permitting. This plugin has been tested on a fresh 4.2 installation of the IPS suite with no other plugins loaded and no custom.css. 
     
    Cost
    $25 to buy, $7 every six months. Regular renewals keep me perky enough to want to support this wonderful monster. Your renewals get you support, bug fixes, and new features too! 
     
    Terms
    One buy, one site. Feel free to use on your test site if you have one of course. If you lapse on renewals so long that I tell you to buy it again that does NOT mean you now have licenses to two separate copies. All rights reserved, etc...
     
    AFTER INSTALLATION
    Be sure to drag KS to the top of your list of plugins in the ACP. The order of the plugins in that list is the order in which they are built out into the IPS system and given that KS does so much stuff, to avoid conflicts with other plugins, drag it all the way to the top!
    Thank You!

  6. $20.00

    Pages Searchable Text Fields

    4.2.x and 4.3.x Compatible!
    How does this work?
    During the indexing process for an IPS Pages database record the field you have flagged as "Content" is processed by the IPS indexing method. After that is complete, this plugin checks that the overall item is indeed a Pages database record and looks for text, text area, and editor fields that are also a part of the record. If those fields have been flagged by you with this plugin to be included in the search index those areas are then collected, stripped of HTML elements to retain only the pure text content (Editor fields only), and then appended to the end of the initial indexed data (that field you have marked as "Content").
    That field content is now in the search index and, naturally, searchable!

    When does this actually apply?
    When records are saved (initial creation) and when edited of course. Also during search index rebuilds.

    What happens if I remove this plugin or disable it?
    Those additional fields will no longer be indexed. Any of those fields previously indexed with records will remain in the index until the record is edited again or you rebuild the search index. I can't stop you or your other admins from doing... interesting things. This plugin does EXACTLY what it says, no more, no less. The plugin also is not psychic so when one of your admins decides to do some server work and disables this (and other plugins) but people are still making entries on the front end the result will be pretty much what you expect...

    What happens if IPS decides to finally include this functionality themselves?
    Remove this plugin, do whatever is required of the new IPS functionality, rebuild the search index. This plugin only appends the additional text to the search index entry (which for Pages database records is whatever the content of the field flagged as "content" contains, minus HTML code) and makes no actual changes to the record content itself. 

    Why hasn't this been included by IPS before?
    Appending specifically? Permissions. Searchable fields in general? A structural challenge with the overall IPS content model.

    What do you mean?
    Every database field can have custom permissions. For example, you can create a bug tracker where there are publicly view-able fields and then other fields that only staff can see. However, there is only a single search index content entity that is searched - not separate searchable entries for every field. That means that every field you append to the search index with this plugin MUST be a field you want everyone to be able to see. When viewing a record those field permissions will of course apply, but with this information appended to the single searchable index entry you risk the chance that a search result will display with that formerly staff-only field and now everyone will know your admins are calling other members "buttheads" or worse. Be careful!
    For IPS to solve this, they would need to treat all additional text, editor, and text area fields as totally separate entities to be inserted into the search index. The management of that endeavor will require some engineering. We didn't get additional searchable fields in the 3x line, not with the initial 4.0.x hotness, and with 4.3 now it still appears to be a distant dream. I got tired of waiting. For my use case I can write a totally custom app, with separate databases for every "field" I want to be searchable and then handle everything with joins and all that on the back-end, or I can just append the two text fields I need searchable to the main content field with this plugin and call it a day. It might be possible to swing this by using the relational functions in Pages but I've never gotten them to work all that well to be honest.
     
    Future development?
    Looking at filtering out content from being indexed by entering a regex equation. If the content of the field matches your regex, this plugin will not append it to the search index entry. This will cut down on search index spam if the text fields you are appending often contain repetitious entries and you'd rather just index out the more unique ones.
    Maybe numbers? Both the above and this are totally doable, but let's just get this out the door first shall we?
     
    OK, great, but I already have a massive database. I installed this and set the fields I wanted to be indexed in this database. I get that new records going forward will have the field values added to the search index but what about old records?
    Manually edit each one (edit and save, no need to change anything) or if that is way too much work (it probably is) head into the ACP - System - Content Discovery - Search and rebuild the search index. That should do it!
     
    Can't we rebuild just a single Pages database search index by itself?
    Nope, sorry. IPS does not have the ability to just rebuild a single application's search index at this time - or if it does exist it is not available in the ACP.
     
    $20 to buy, $6 year renew but honestly consider the renew a tip jar as this is more or less "done" as it is.

  7. $35.00

    Spacious ACP

    There's a lot to go through - let's get started!
    Theme Tweaks:
    Header, primary, and secondary menu background colors fully configurable. Header, primary, and secondary menu font colors fully configurable. Change background color of message information and message warnings. Option for tighter row spacing throughout. Page fade-in animation effect for an app-like feel. Secondary menu options have mouse-over hover effect so you can actually see what you are about to select. Secondary menu options have expanded hotlink area across the entire list element instead of just the text: easy navigation for you! Change the name of the ACP to whatever you want! Un-sticky the ACP header to gain more screen-estate when scrolling. Optional modern-style dashboard widget format. Square-up toggles. Change animation speeds on dialog popups - strongly recommended as these often act as speed limiters. New Suite Version announcements and ACP warnings new look. Lots more!

    Login Page:
    Add a background or just change the color. The login box is totally customizable as well including transparency and the option to add additional text. Swap out the full Invision logo for just the icon.  
      
    Dashboard Patches and Updates:
     
    3rd Party Apps and Plugins that use the update push functionality still only indicate updates on the application and plugin pages in the ACP and unless an admin has business on those pages they are rarely seen. Spacious ACP lets you add buttons to the dashboard to handle this. When a 3rd Party app has an update, the button will appear on the dashboard - click it and a dialog will popup showing the the app, when it was updated, and if the app author has provided it, an update button that will take you to the download page to get it. Of course, that is just a link to the item - the user will still need permissions to download it (for example, many times this link just goes to the Invision Marketplace listing)
    Invision often pushes out silent patches. These are not announced publicly and are only available if you re-download your copy of the suite from the client area or if you hit the support tool - something isn't working - if a patch is available it will list it there. This doesn't seem ideal so like the 3rd Party update button I've included a button for these silent patches. If a patch is available, the button will appear on the dashboard. Clicking it opens a dialog window listing what the patch addresses and a button to apply it. Although any ACP user will see this information, users will need permissions to apply patches/updates in order for the button to work.
    In both the above cases, if there are no updates, no buttons will appear!
     
    Additional System Tweaks:
    Plugin versions displayed alongside plugins. IPS News widget reformatted to not waste so much space. Online Admins widget now with avatars! (Note this widget should be renamed to ACP Users as that is what it is actually displaying, not admins online in your community) Your most online stat is ALWAYS being tracked, not just tracked when the stats widget is on a page on the front end! Restores ACP favicon. Upload whatever you like (ico format for now) or use the giant black IPS ico provided. PM members from the member page! S3 file methods will now display endpoint and directory structure in their listed names allowing you to actually tell the difference between various S3 entities. PHPInfo on the support page now fires off in a new tab/window instead of hijacking your ACP session. Add a Wipe Caches button to the dashboard and skip hitting the support tool! Can also add a link to the tasks list, admin logs, and moderator logs to the dashboard! Stuff I've probably forgotten...  
    New Widgets!
    Spacious Widgets are flagged with a block "S" in the Add button dropdown list. The downward pointing triangles next to the widget titles can be toggle on or off in Spacious ACP settings. The 90-Day graphs that some widgets have are configurable for fill style, color, line width, etc. They will by default pull whatever color your ACP header is set to.
     
        
     
    System Overview
    Real-time server load, IPS installation size, IPS database size, memory available (or free), storage space available, options for Community in the Cloud customers, database details including your database engine and character search limits. Graph colors match your chosen ACP header colors, option to over-ride. When memory/server space becomes critical graphs go red! You configure when the memory and server space warnings kick in! Details button for more information - server location map if Google Maps, etc. is enabled. That little blip you see on the right in the diskspace rail in the screenshot above is the size of your local IPS installation (anything within your IPS directory plus your IPS database size) - you get both the actual numeric size and a graphic representation against your drive.
     
        
    System Errors
    Lists the last five system errors so you can actually see what problems are occurring under the hood. Those last five errors are on a look-back basis meaning the five most recent system errors that have occurred between three to seven days ago (configurable). Two errors over the last five days? Those two will display. No errors within that time span will display the "All Systems Go!" look as seen above. Widget will always provide a numeric count of the last 30 days worth of errors though that number will not be totally correct if you have set system error logs to purge less than 30 days. I strongly recommend having this on your dashboard. Just because your system appears to be running smoothly does not mean 3rd Party apps and plugins, or Invision apps even, are not throwing errors. These may be pointers to server problems or bugs that need to be reported. This widget provides direct links to the actual error reports and a button to the full list of system errors. 3rd party developers do not have a built in error reporting system like IPS does right now and we can only fix what we know about.
     

    Gallery Overview
    Mostly a rework of the default Gallery widget but with better formatting. Note the default widget (and this one) only tracks the storage space of the original images, not all the copies actually made and used by the IPS system - those stats are not saved anywhere. Includes the four newest images along with the four most viewed. Widget is fine wide or side. Not shown is the 90 day graph. This is configurable on or off as unless your site sees daily Gallery uploads the graph can look pretty barren.

     

     
    Forum Statistics
    The most glaring IPS omission. Tracks graphically 90 days worth of topics started and responses made. Includes live today counts. Also include a ratio-rail so you can easily see if topics are being started but no one is talking... Some basic lifetime counts plus a look at who your recent positive contributors are.

     
    Explaining the New 90-Day Charts...
    These are unified across all of the widgets and work as follows. The graph itself is 90 days worth of data starting from whatever constitutes "yesterday" (i.e. not today) and then 90 days back in total. This way there is no partial data of "today" involved. Directly beneath the graph are blocks for the last seven days with the actual numbers for the data within. In effect the last seven days on the graph is just duplicated in numeric form underneath the entire graph. You get the best of both worlds in that you get 90 days displayed graphically, including trendline, but without x and y axis involvement, and you can still see the most recent hard numbers at a glance. The graph is live of course - just hover over the line to have the data points pop up. Opposite of the graph title if applicable, you will get the current "today" count of the thing being depicted. If you are still confused just ask in the support topic.

     

     
    Member Statistics
    Still getting worked on - more to come! A rail that shows the counts and ratio of your community members. From right to left members active the past seven days, the last eight to ninety days, the last ninety-one days to one year back (not shown in this screen shot). All remaining registered members that have not visited your community in the last year are flagged as inactive. If you are having your members list their birthdays, you can also get a rough median age for your members. Naturally this statistic is not worth all that much as often times members input false birthdays but in large communities this number will probably give you a decent idea of your member age.

     

    SimilarWeb
    A website ranking/tracking service. Two SW default widgets for tracking visitor types and relative rankings, embedded in a single IPS dashboard widget. The rankings widget can have two additional websites added for tracking alongside your own site. These widgets are a free service of SimilarWeb.

     

    Alexa
    Get your Alexa ranking (for whatever that's worth...) right in your dashboard. Both global and national. Updates daily and flags trending up or down from previous check. This widget is also undergoing additional dev as Alexa things have changed. Next Spacious version or two will see this one perked up with some longer term tracking.

     

    Most Active Topics Last 3 Days
    As stated. Based on topic responses only. Maximum of five listed. Useful for large boards where admins can likely miss where the action is at any given time.
     
    More widgets on the way...
     
    Version 14 and higher is EXCLUSIVELY for Invision Community 4.3 and higher. Do not use on 4.2. There are older versions of Spacious ACP available in the version dropdown if you need a 4.2 compatible version - appearance and features will be different from this current description of course.
     
    Installation:
    There is just a single application file (tar) and an optional IPS black browser .ico file. Install the tar like you would any other application. All Astronauts application all have their settings in the ACP under a new AA tab. You can't miss it - and that's it!
     
    Heads Up!
    Widgets with Google Charts in them can sometimes render weird when you first drag them onto the dashboard. Just refresh the page. On install AND upgrades, Spacious tasks are automatically marked as never ran (this behavior is standard for all app tasks as of 4.3). Some widgets rely on pulling saved information that is generated by these tasks. Feel free to manually run any Spacious tasks to spark the process along if you do not feel like waiting 10-15 minutes (or longer for some stats).  
    Notes:

    Some of the new widgets give you a sampling of statistical information you probably want about your site and though you can request that I add some things of this nature to Spacious Widgets they will probably NOT be added as that will require storing substantial information in the database. That's well beyond the scope of an ACP theme and some add-on widgets. Better off in a separate application where it can be done right. Be sure and look at the default statistics tab: somewhere along the line in the 4.2 series they've improved things there a lot.
    In some server/hosting situations some data I try to read for the System Overview widget may not be accessible. Do not buy this if the Server Overview widget is the only thing you are interested in. No refunds will be approved due to some elements of that widget not working correctly on your site.
    Specifically, you will need allow read access to the /proc directory on Centos/Red Hat/Ubuntu systems and in some cases you may have an Apache setting called open_basedir preventing this. A simple file edit on your server will usually solve this. VestaCP users will need to edit some configuration templates to change this variable. 
     
    Cost/Allowed Use:
    $25 and $7 every six months. Basically $14 a year once you get going for a customizable ACP and a bunch of new dashboard widgets (with more on the way!). Renewals keep us devs going! Licensed for your IPS site bound to your IPS account plus any/all dev boards (localhost or otherwise). Other sites should/need to get their own licensed copy of Spacious ACP. All rights reserved, etc.

    SuperScroll

    SuperScroll
    Awesome page scrolling, custom scrollbars!
    SuperScroll is an IPS 4 plugin that changes the default scrolling behavior when browsing IPS 4 webpages. With SuperScroll you can can control the speed and feel of how all IPS webpages move (with easing) and change the look and feel of the browser scrollbar. SuperScroll is based on Nicescroll, a jQuery plugin. 

      Page Movement: SuperScroll attaches to the entire HTML element and binds to mousewheel, up/down keys, and the spacebar. All IPS webpages will now scroll smoothly with the settings you specify, easing to a stop after the input has ended. Any additional interior elements (such as editor boxes, etc) that have scrollbars will NOT be affected and will behave as usual. You control the speed and the distance!

    Custom Scrollbars:
    When using SuperScroll the browser's native scrollbar is replaced with two divs - one used as the background rail, the other for the cursor that travels up and down overtop the rail. These divs collectively float over top of your page content. The screenshot provided shows a few quick examples but it really is up to you how this looks. You can customize nearly everything for both divs!
    Such as? Add a fixed background to the rail with a branding/theme element from your community. Maybe cut a sponsorship deal and stick a static ad as the background for the rail. Change the cursor to a circle. Set both the cursor and the rail to transparent - still grabbable but no one will ever see the scrollbars on your pages again! How about an image as the cursor? Animated? Why not!

     

    Settings:
    Page Movement: Distance each wheel notch/key click will move the page in pixels. Speed of that movement. 
    Entire Scrollbar: Auto fade out on/off, fade out delay time, opacity of the entire scrollbar on full-fade, opacity of the entire scrollbar when fully visible. Z-index number to ensure the scrollbar never gets hidden by other page elements, move the scrollbar from the right side to the left side of the page.
    Scrollbar Cursor: Width, Color, Radius (to round the edges or make a completely round cursor), Minimum cursor height, fixed cursor height, top and bottom buffers, CSS borders, right padding to nudge the cursor away from the edge of the page. Transparency with the RGBA toggle. Set an image as the cursor!
    Scrollbar Rail: Width, color, full control of CSS background call (including transparency and image).
     
    Allowed Use:
    Single public site and all of your development instances (hosted or localhost). Have another site? Get another under that account please.
     
    Price and renewals:
    8 now, 3 for yearly renewals. Honestly though, the renewal fee is mainly to protect me if the plugin needs to get completely rewritten due to IPS changes. As it is now, the thing is pretty much future-proof so you can probably ignore the renewal invoices when they arrive. Unless you want to shower me with beer money. Please do!

     
    Future Features:
    Check out the support topic for more information. Short version is rail positioning, ease speed, better CSS handling, bumper effect, and drag/drop background image handling. For some of this it's complicated...
    Hit the support topic for some pointers on some standard settings as well!
     
    Note: Works with all 4x series. Probably needs some better css targeting to exception out anything other than the browser scrollbar.

    S3 Compatible Downloads

    Non-Amazon S3 storage services do work with IPS 4.1x. Add your endpoint, key, secret, and sub-directory and custom url if needed, assign to some file category such as attachments or Gallery images and off you go!
    However, these Non-Amazon S3 services are NOT officially supported by IPS - that's because some of the internal methods have not been altered to handle them. These methods are hard-coded for Amazon S3 exclusively.
    If you are merely displaying images and the like on the front end, none of this is a problem. It becomes a problem if your end-users are going to download these files - that is when you hit the exclusively Amazon S3 code and the downloads will fail. For example, if you assign non-Amazon S3 storage to save IPS Downloads files, those files will not be downloadable. When the system attempts to make the download URL, it crafts that URL as if you were using Amazon S3, not some other S3-Compatible storage service.
    The two major areas that this will impact are IPS Downloads files and Attachments (this is what the file storage is called in the Files list in the ACP - it encompasses all attachments such as those you would have anywhere the full editor is used and there is an attachment dropzone.)
    This plugin intercepts the the URL creation method called on Amazon S3 file storage objects, checks to see if it is an actual Amazon S3 request, and then just passes it on through as usual. If it is NOT an Amazon S3 request, it must be an S3 compatible method, in which case I provide a rudimentary URL to patch this up. It isn't anything fancy: just enough headers to push out the actual file name and trigger your browser to download it. If the attachment or file in question is an image your browser might just pop it up in a new tab, in which case just right click and download it there. This has been tested with the usual modern browsers (minus Safari), and various file-types. All testing was successful.
    BTW, as an aside, external FTP storage for files is NOT COMPATIBLE with IPS Community in the Cloud. Might want to note that...
    Free, support through the IPS Marketplace topic for now. Free also means lay off the instantaneous demands for support. I use this too so it's in my interest to keep this going. Support, and this plugin's existence, continues until IPS gets around to actually officially supporting Non-Amazon S3 storage.
    WARNING!
    The only item in the entire IPS Suite that marks files as private is IPS Downloads. This plugin will flag them as public. This means a few things:
    1) If you are monetizing or otherwise require to fully control access to IPS Downloads files this is probably not the plugin for you. You will need to wait for complete 3rd Party S3 support, or at least specific mods to support obj.space, Digital Oceans Spaces, and so on. It really is just some hump work on getting the signatures correct (and it might be a V2 vs. V4 dance with varying providers as well - IPS just has a hard-coded-to-Amazon V4 method). Give it time, it will happen.
    2) If you are using this plugin on an already existing bucket with Downloads files, those files will need to be flagged as public-read for them to download correctly. Again, this plugin is just getting rid of the signatures to allow public files to download correctly from 3rd-party S3 providers. 
    3) IPS Downloads users on IPS Community in the Cloud may need to wait forever and ever before the plugin will work correctly (forever and ever being defined as more than handful of minutes) as CIC caching takes some time to get things working. You *will* need to be infinitely patient. Like, install and then go drink something for awhile, read a book, etc. Then test. Don't yell at me saying this is broken., It isn't. Tested and verified on both own-hosting and CIC.
    Enjoy, good luck, etc...

    Pages Category Images

    Add an image to every IPS Pages database category for use in your templates!
    NOTE: V1 plugin users please see note near bottom for installation instructions - short version is do NOT uninstall the plugin!
    Any settings?
    Nope. Just install and go. When editing/creating a category in an IPS Pages database this application appends a new tab where you can upload an image. That's it.
    And how do I use this?
    Images are stored wherever you have set the Pages Category Images file handler set to store them and you can access the image anywhere the $category variable is available to you in Pages templates.
    $category->pcimage = The local url to the stored image. You will rarely use this by itself as it will return "uploads/monthly_07/thisismyimagename_34erjfhrufhdheh.jpg" or something along those lines.
    {file="$category->pcimage"} = The COMPLETE url to the stored image. "https://myawesomesite.com/uploads/monthly_07/thisismyimagename_34erjfhrufhdheh.jpg". Just sticking this in a template will output that as a line of text.
    <img src='{file="$category->pcimage"}'> = The image will be displayed in your template at this location at full size.
    You get the idea. From here you can format the image with css, use it as a background element, and so on. 
    Why am I using this again?
    Give every category its own image. Format it like an icon and stick it next to the category title in your templates. You could create a large section background for your categories using this image. And so on...
    Why $category->pcimage and not just $category->image?
    If IPS ever adds something like this to Pages database categories themselves I predict with 99.999% certainty they would use the word "image". I added the "pc" in front to hedge against that potential future conflict.
    What happens if I disable this application?
    Everything will continue to work, you just won't be able to add an image to Pages database categories until you re-enable it. You are just disabling the category edit/create category image tab when you disable this; that's all. 
    And if I uninstall this?
    All of your uploaded images will be deleted of course. Consider that you will be editing your Pages templates to add calls to these images too. You'll need to edit your templates to remove those calls after you uninstall this.
    Did this used to be a plugin?
    Yep. Now its an application with a proper file handler. 
    I have the plugin now should I uninstall that or...?
    DO NOT UNINSTALL THE PLUGIN! You'll lose all of your files and have to re-upload them again. I've set up the install routine for the new application to handle it all for you.
    Install the app just like any other app and it will automatically take over the file handling from the piggybacked core_Attachments handler, remove the plugin uninstall routine that would normally delete your uploaded images, and then uninstalls the plugin for you. If for some reason you install the plugin again afterwards you're on your own... Seriously, delete any copies of the plugin you have lying around. Only bad can come from those being used after you've installed the app. 
    Cost
    $10 / $5 renew.  
    Terms/License
    One buy, one site. Feel free to use on all your test sites if you have any. No uploading to warez/pirate sites which really should go without saying and yet here we are...

    When I inherited this file there was a bug in the uninstall routine. A tiny syntax error. If you've never attempted to uninstall this file before just upgrade to the latest version and you should be fine. If you have attempted to uninstall before you may end up with problems trying to reinstall this ever again. You can try to clear out database elements (many places) and clear your IPS server directory of the plugin files and that may help or maybe it won't. All I have to go on is someone's very broken IPS installation and honestly I don't even think this plugin was ever the problem but it did get caught up in the mess.

    Group Colors on User Links

    This plugin forces most user links throughout the Invision Community to display member group color/formatting.
    This applies in all places where the \IPS\Member object is used to produce links to a member.
    Your user name in the cover photo and also on profile hovercards (when you cursor over a username/photo and the mini profile appears) remain un-formatted and probably should remain that way as background images will nearly always conflict with the group formatted color and should remain white. See below.

    If you are wondering why some areas do not have formatted names and others do that is because there are many different ways the userlink is created throughout the suite. If the IPS\Member object is used the group color will be applied automatically. In EVERY other instance additional coding is required. Sometimes easy, other times not. 
    Search and Stream Results are particularly challenging as they actually involve language files with variable passed directly to the language construct. As is right now you will see Search and Stream Results do have group formatting applied but the trailing possessive does not - i.e. Fate's topic. There may be away around this but it will require new language bits and that means translations and so on...
    Version 12 is 4.3 compatible and FREE - find it attached below.
    Version 11 is the last compatible version for 4.2 and is also FREE - find it attached below. 
    Both version 11 and 12 are no longer supported! Version 13 and onward is paid and supported (as far as future Invision Community system changes will allow me)
    This mod is beer/coffee priced. $7 with $4/year renewal. Just got to the point where the support requests (and patches for IPS changes) took too much time away from other things.

    Searchlight

    Remember when clicked-through search results highlighted the search terms on the content pages themselves? Sure, we all do. And now, lo, those times have returned again.
    Highlights search terms on the clicked-through-to content pages! Customize the searchlight: background, font color, bold, all caps. Wildcards supported! Do you already have Kitchen Sink? Hey hey! I'm including this for free in KS!
      Where do these things get highlighted?
    Anywhere within #ipsLayout_mainArea. All the header stuff is avoided, the left/right sidebars are external to mainArea and the top/bottom sidebar areas have been CSS'd out.
    Your code or...
    Yep, but for the actual marking of results I'm using mark.js, an MIT licensed library. Support is wide ranging for all modern browsers. The latest builds are marked as failed for the bleeding edge Android and Safari browsers but those may be automated tests and not indicative of actual performance. Those mobile browsers are all marked as good-to-go for previous versions so even if there are problems on the bleeding edge stuff this is an actively maintained library and should get fixed up soon enough. That said, as mark.js goes, so goes this plugin, otherwise I'll need to code up the marking code myself (PS: I won't be doing that ? ). 
    Really? Wildcard searches are supported?
    Yep. If you search for monkey* and you get hits on the results page for monkeyshines, monkeyshines will be highlighted on the content page when you click through. You search terms are pushed through and then the js library itself will do the wildcard matching without me having to persuade Cold Outer Gods to parse the precise wildcard hits in the results list and push those through. No thanks.
    Requirements?
    JavaScript enabled, modern browser with local storage capability, and that's about it. Naturally, your IPS experience is... not pleasant if you disable JavaScript so this shouldn't be surprising. 
    Those screenshots...
    Those screenshots show the search results page so you can see what is found, and then what Searchlight does on the content itself once you click-through. I do NOTHING on the search results page as regards the appearance of those highlights. You'l also note that when you wildcard search, IPS does NOT highlight the search hits on the results page. That's them, not me.
    Exceptions?
    Pages for guests are cached. When guests click through on a search result they will (probably) be served a cached page. That might be a problem (for them at least) Non-Latin languages are only partially supported. Full Arabic/Cryllic/Etc. language support for the mark.js library will be included with version 9.0+ of mark.js. Current version is 8.x Elasticsearch has the ability to do similar term matching. This plugin is working with what the user directly inputs as search terms. Naturally, those similar words will 99% of the time have one of the search terms somewhere within it so this really isn't a problem. For V3 I've ditched anything to do with appending information to the url to both lighten this plugin and to get around a tricky FURL/Pages conflict. Since this now uses the referral url as a trigger if a user, when on a search results index page (list of search hits after searching for something) and then proceeds to NOT go to a search result page but instead goes somewhere else in the suite, if by chance any of their search terms happen to be on any of those pages they will get highlighted.   
    Cost
    $6 to buy, $3.50 every year.
    If you already own Kitchen Sink there is no need to buy this as I'm including it for free there. Consider purchasing Kitchen Sink if you don't own it already, a few bucks more gets you a whole lot more... Yes. I'm trying to entice you to get Kitchen Sink instead. How could you tell?
     
    Terms
    One buy, one site. Feel free to use on your test site if you have one of course. If you lapse on renewals so long that I tell you to buy it again that does NOT mean you now have licenses to two separate copies. All rights reserved (for the stuff that is mine), etc... No complaining to me that IPS should have included this themselves.
     
    Thank You!

    Sound Board

    With Sound Board you can:
    Set a new default notification sound for your community! Allow members to customize their notification sound! Administrators can limit this ability to specific member groups. Choosing only the guest user group will force everyone on to your new default customization sound. Allow members' custom notification sounds to be playable on member profile pages. Disable the public display for your more naughty members and their naughty notification sounds... NOTE: Version 2 is for 4.3.2 or later EXCLUSIVELY! Do not use with 4.3.1 or lower!
    The playing of the notification sound flows as follows:
    1) If a member has a custom sound, and has group permissions to have a custom sound, that sound will play for them when they get a notification.
    2) If not (member has no custom sound specified and/or no group permissions), and you have set a new default notification sound in the Sound Board ACP settings, that will play instead.
    3) Otherwise, it will fall back to the usual IPS default notification sound.
    Members with group permissions to have a custom notification sound have a menu option right in the usermenu drop down. Drag and drop MP3, WAV, OGG, FLAC, or ACC files and that's all that's needed.
    If you choose, you can toggle on the public display of a member's notification sound on the member's profile page. An HTML5 audio player holds the sound giving any visitor to the page the ability to hear it. This is a simple social feature, nothing more; a conversation starter or something along those lines. Naturally nothing will display unless the member is in a group that has permissions to have these custom sounds, and they actually have set one.
    Does a member have a notification sound that is not quite up to your community standards but you still want people to have their notification sound on their profile pages? Go to the problem member's entry in the ACP and toggle this feature off for this member. They still get to use their custom notification sound, but your community won't be exposed to it.
    Audio Formats/Limits:
    MP3, WAV, OGG, FLAC, ACC.  I have a 5 meg limit on file size as well - no real reason other than it seems reasonable. Can be removed if needed.
    Instructions:
    Install app, find it under the new All Astronauts app tab in the ACP, configure settings, enjoy!

    Notes:
    This only changes the notification sounds that are sent out. It does nothing with the where/why/how of how notifications are generated. CIC users may need to be patient post install and after members add a custom notification sound as the CIC system takes a few minutes to duplicate/cache/CDN the sound file. Please. please. please be patient. CIC is notorious for cache delays affecting acp settings changes and the like. 
    Hey it says "Choosing only the guest user group will force everyone on to your new default customization sound." How does that work even?
    Guests are not members and do not receive notifications. If you select that group, and only that group, and also have a new default sound set, all of your members, admins, etc. will pull the new default you set without the ability to set their own personal defaults. 
    So that means I do that and I have a new community wide default notification sound that everyone has to use?
    Yep!
    Cost:
    $10 to get, $6/6 months.  Renews are mainly a tip jar and to protect myself if IPS changes force me to work this over again. And it's already happened with 4.3 (twice already!)
    Support/Etc.:
    Support available for the time being in the IPS Marketplace topic. PMs are ok but the topic is far better. Keep in mind most devs here have other lives - we often will read a PM but we may not actually reply for quite sometime; please be patient. You are allowed to use this, after purchasing a license and downloading this from the IPS Marketplace, on one live site and any test/dev sites you have. Additional live sites require additional license purchases. Renewals (per purchase) entitle you to updated versions and ongoing support. Skip a renew if you don't need a new version or support. Support is limited to the default IPS theme and is for IPS license holders current on the application/plugin renewals (with a generous grace period). I'll give a hand, time permitting, to help you figure out what is wrong with your custom theme if there is a conflict but fixes in those cases will need to be made by your theme provider.
