This application allows you to define redirections to either dynamic IPS links like a members profile, or to hide links and to allow only specific members to visit them based on the group permissions.
For example, some of you noticed probably notes like
// see https://fosters.tech/links/project-permbug in our source code which allowed our support and developers to get to the JIRA bugreport without revealing the real URL to others;)
This is also a great way to create "lifetime" links, so you'll be able to change the redirect target frequently, but the URL to access this page (for example docs ) will remain the same ( IPS is doing this with their docs )

The GDPR sets out the principles for data management and the rights of the individual. GDPR covers all organizations that deal with data of EU citizens, so it is a critical regulation for online communities and forums with EU citizens. GDPR came into effect on May 25, 2018.

Invision Community 4.2 includes beautiful new Richer Embeds for links to internal content, which automatically expands to a large and beautiful preview of the content. However, one problem with the Richer Embeds is the constant display of the topic's first image, even when the topic contains more posts and attachments. Embed Enhancements by @Fosters gives more control to you over what images will appear in IPS Rich Embeds and it allows you to also set the og-image tag.
Per-Forum setting to show first image or last image Add a custom embed image in each topic Moderator permissions Adds the missing og-image tag to topics (and to any other content using this app when an image is selected) If you change settings, please run the ACP Support Tool to clear the cache.

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.
