    As the functionality stands now you get a running list of Stock Replies that you have to scroll through to "hopefully find one that is appropriate for the area you are in currently.

    It would be nice if IPS created categories that you populate in the ACP and then choose on the front end to find a set of Stock Replies pertinent to a particular use case.

     
    Once you click on a category it would bring up a list of relevant Stock Replies you could choose from.
    Access to each category would be set in the ACP and would only appear on the frontend if the user had the appropriate permission.

    Hello Dears
    It's great to have an almost certain timeline for future releases, as I've already discussed with Jordan.
    For example, we now know that version 4.6.7 is scheduled to be released in the first half of October.
    Or, for example, we implicitly know that version 4.7.0 is scheduled to be released on Jordan's birthday on 2022.4.7! 🎉
    If there is a sidebar widget (or any other better idea) on the forums page that indicates the release date of newer versions, it would be great, and community leaders can plan for that.
    For example, pay attention to this design (sidebar widget) :

    Thanks for reading, Sajjad. 😉

    What if people want to buy it for their 4.4 or 4.5 installation? It's the only way people on older version can have this function. I see no need to remove it NOW. I understand it sucks with the price-change news and all but don't let all that get to you.
    BTW you have done TONS of mods, some of which really seem that should be in IPS as core functions. You can't expect that one day these will not be implemented into IPS by the company. Instead focus on making and improving other great mods which are unlikely to be picked up by IPS: like quizzes, jobs and many others. 😉 stay positive 🙂

    Is there a way it can be even more personalised by detecting the username from the original topic?

    [USERNAME], thanks for your reply.

    Jordan - Congrats
    Matt - What does this position actually mean for clients?  How will he triage, prioritize, and escalate client feedback to the IPS team, all of whom can and do visit the forums themselves? What are the parameters for clients to help highlight and channel our feedback in an effective manner?  And finally, as a community advocate, what does he actually advocate?  Whom does he represent, and to what extent?  
    Until the company articulates - and the community can validate - these above questions, this new position is entirely aspirational.  
    Invision has attempted multiple community engagement tactics over the years.  And I have a long history of memory:
    I remember IPS Release Notes when Charles said you were going to provide a roadmap.  That quietly disappeared and failed.  I remember Tagging when Lindy said you were going to tag the status of features.  That quietly disappeared and failed.   I remember how you removed Pre-Sales and merged Feedback from all product lines together.  Product Feedback is now a mess.   I remember how you recently launched a Slack channel for Marketplace devs.  How is that going?   I genuinely and honestly don't mind you guys trying new things - that's great.  Every community (and company) should always be experimenting and launching new initiatives.  But the past history of your community engagement is littered with no follow through.  How is this time different?    
    To be blunt and on behalf of all of your retail clients, we don't need a Community Advocate to post memes.  We need a Community Advocate with the power to deliver and communicate on meaningful actions to drive our communities forward.

    Hey again, Joel. Jordan here.
    First off, I want to say that I genuinely appreciate your passion for community building. We spoke about a year and a half ago via Skype because you genuinely care about the subject and offered me a lot of valuable insight. It really doubled down the importance of online communities. I've always appreciated that convo we had and want to publicly give you props for that. Thank you. 🙏
    You bring up a lot of great points! That's exactly why (I believe) Invision decided to include me in an official capacity, because first and foremost we want the community to be heard and taken seriously. I've been a frequent visitor of the Invision Community; I have a lot of experience regarding the customer side of things and wanting XYZ change. I understand the feeling of wanting my ideas/concerns/feedback heard and hopefully implemented.
    That is one of our goals with my role is to listen, assess and take decisive action.
    I do feel confident I can be an advocate for you and other Invision clients, as well as be a sounding board for the official team. Picture me as an Invision Bridge that connects this community to the team. I believe this takes trust, which I must earn, and I look forward to that.
    You make a lot of great points. The community does not need a professional meme poster. We need someone who has the power to deliver and communicate on meaningful actions to drive our communities forward.
    I do believe I can serve you and the rest of the community in that regard.
    However, I know actions speak louder than words, so I'm looking forward to the future and the upcoming opportunities to show that. 😊
    And just cause I love me a good cat meme.
     


    If you need anything, @Joel R, please feel free to reach out to me via PM. I'm here for you and the rest of the community.

    Great work as always IPS. Love the focus on mobile, this is very important, as more and more people are visiting our forums on mobile these days.
    --------------------------------

    This stands out to me: Is it possible to have the Follow text centered, even if the following count was in the thousands, there should still be enough room to keep the Follow text centered.

    I was going to say also isn't possible to put the < Go To Topic Listing and the Next unread topic > on the same line? But would there be a circumstance where there would be more words for either, which I would then see how they both couldn't fit on the same line.

    Too much empty space. It looks like an abstract Dribbble-layout for a portfolio, not for real use.

    I love the new look; overall changes.
    Hopefully, overall DOM size has been reduced.
    Have you guys tested and compared speed improvements between 4.xxx and 4.5? Mobile? Desktop? 
    Mobile should be just as fast as desktop (or close to it). I believe Google PageSpeed/Lighthouse default tests speed are Fast 3G/Slow 4G.
    That's definitely not the case with the current Forums site. HUGE difference.
    Yes, we all know that it's not the same as the default platform or how each site will run. But, it is the first thing that potential customers will experience/test.
    I'll attach screenshots of the CURRENT speed per Google PageSpeed ... and when IPS converts site to 4.5 I'll share those screenshots as well.
    Personally, I just want to see before/after results. 🙂

    This all looks amazing and so much neater, but there is one thing that really bugs me a lot - it's probably the designer in me - is the inconsistency of the side bar top alignment; see below:

    The gap between the top of the sidebar and the topic header.
    Yet here it is aligned perfectly:

    I presume there is a reason for this, or is it an oversight?
    I don't mean to be picky as you've done a fantastic job on the update, but this one little niggle is a bug for me lol

    I don't like current behaviour of highlighting because it works for every posts, does not matter if this post important or not (i.e. "official staff answer" or "staff member's comment on kittens photo"). I'd prefer to have an option below editor. Posted this also as suggestion in feedback and ideas section. Please support(reaction/comment - any activity) this topic if you need it too.
