    Inactive Members

    Inactive Members and Real Last Activity is a suite of tools and enhancements for your IPS Community, designed to help you measure real last activity, notify users based upon real last activity, and ultimately manage inactive members.  
    Are you looking to re-engage old or inactive members?   Are you looking to automatically clean out inactive members?  Are you looking to overcome the hidden activity of anonymous users? Inactive Members and Real Last Activity by @Fosters adds three powerful tools into your admin toolkit to help you intelligently manage the activity of your members.
    Inactive Members
    Inactive Members adds new rule-making capabilities to your Members tab in the ACP which empower you to engage inactive members and attract them back; manage inactive members by automatically moving them to another membergroup or permanently deleting them; and automate the entire setup  in a seamless and constant back-end process.  
    Choose the number of inactive days.  Select the action.  Save.  
    Other features on Inactive Members include:
    Write multiple rules such as 30 days, 60 days, and 180 days based on your own community activity and needs Exclude certain membergroups so they stay protected from changes Draft custom email messages using the powerful IPS tag system to customize it to the recipient Real Last Activity
    Real Last Activity adds a new measurement metric to every user profile on the user's actual recorded activity.  This can be used to overcome the activities of users who mark themselves as anonymous and participate in the forums without showing their activity.  
    Bulk Mail Filter
    A new filter is added to the IPS Bulk Mail feature.  This can be used to sharpen your Bulk Mail targeting to include or exclude anonymous users based upon their real last activity on your community.  For users who want to stay anonymous but who actively visit and participate on your website, you can now target them better with your community newsletters and mailings.

    Slack Notifications

    Connect your IPS community with Slack, a community chat tool with native apps for desktop, iOS, and Android.  Bring the power of Slack notifications to your IPS community by bridging the two softwares together and creating notifications in Slack when important events happen so you're always in the loop.  Use the same chat service that IPS developers use in private!
    What is Slack?
    Slack is a powerful real-time messaging application with advanced features like feature-rich messaging, file sharing, archive search, videos calls, and more.  Here are a couple of Slack's greatest features:
    Channels -- Organize your team conversations in open channels. Make a channel for a project, a topic, a team, or anything—everyone has a transparent view of all that’s going on. For sensitive information, create private channels and invite a few team members Direct Messages -- Send messages directly to another person or to a small group of people for more focused conversations.
    Calls -- Take a conversation from typing to face-to-face by starting a Slack voice or video call in any Channel or Direct Message. From there, you're one click away from sharing your screen, so everyone can follow along.
    Drag-and-drop Files -- Not just your messages, but all your files, images, PDFs, documents, and spreadsheets can be dropped right into Slack and shared with anyone you want. Add comments, star for later reference, and it’s all completely searchable.  If you use any services like Google Drive, Dropbox, or Box, just paste the link and that document is immediately in sync and searchable too
    Search -- Everything in Slack (messages, notifications, files, and all) s automatically indexed and archived so that you can have it at your fingertips whenever you want. Slack also indexes the content of every file so you can search within PDFs, Word documents, Google docs, and more. With one search box and a set of powerful search operators, you can slice and dice your way to that one message in your communication haystack.
    Slack offers free pricing for new or small teams, and paid plans for larger teams.  
    What does this app do? 
    This application connects your IPS4 installation with an existing installation of Slack, and will push notifications to Slack.  Implemented notifications:
    A new member creates an account A content item is reported An unapproved new content is created IPS\Log::log() function will send content to slack if you're in dev mode ( \IPS\IN_DEV ) This app does NOT integrate or sync your members between IPS and Slack.

    Linkfavicon

    Linkfavicon adds a fun new way to show off links anywhere in your community.  It seamlessly blends favicon art into your text and makes websites immediately recognizable.  This lightweight app automatically adds favicons to all areas of your site, including:
    Forum posts Comments and Reviews Status updates And all other content from official IPS apps and also 3rd party apps Get LinkFavicon by @Fosters and bring linking to a whole new level!
    What are Favicons?
    Favicons are small square images used by web browsers to show a graphical representation of the site being visited and show on many places: browser toolbars, bookmarks, tabs, address bars, and desktop shortcuts.  They provide immediate identification of their represented sites, and play a critical role in site branding and product recognition.  You have probably seen many favicons before, even if you don’t know what they are.  
    Will this affect my site's performance?
    This app relies upon a fetch to Google's Shared Stuff (S2) service, so your server is not affected by the favicon pull.  Images are in PNG format (not ICO) and will render correctly in all browsers using the proper <img> tags.   Finally, this all happens asynchronously, so there is no delay to the page.
