    Auto Welcome Support

    thank you @Mike John for your answer, i might change my way of welcoming the way @iacas is doing it. instead of a pm, a welcome topic in a forum that the user can only see his own topic, and will replace the conversations inside the inbox. it seems like a better solution for handling the incoming questions or do member guidance.

    Auto Welcome Support

    Hello, but then i d have to also delete the messages that will fill the inbox of that account, (so maintenance for a second account = extra work) and also, more importantly i wont be able to track the answers that many members give to that welcome pm - i have enabled the possibility for the members to answer to that message, and many do, so that is very helpful and easy way for them to know how to connect !!!! . ...would a donation help you do the workaround faster ? thanks in advance!

    Auto Welcome Support

    Hello @Mike John ! Am using it on 4.3 and its just fine - with one exception, I cant remember how this setting was enabled : Before updating, i had the settings so that the outbox messages that are sent from the admin account, are not saved/shown inside the pm box. I have many registrations and prefer that message to not be saved otherwise i have to be deleting pms all the time. Can you remind me how i deactivate the saving of those sent pms? thank you very much in advance!

    RSS Feed Import

    @joshuaj thank you for that - i already have a few of Fosters plugins and they work very well and were needed. I will consider it after reading the support topics. of course manually adding an image everytime for every article that will be in the rss , is something that makes the procedure not ideal. Oh i just saw, it needs the pages app.... which i dont own since i want that import to happen from my wordpress homepage. . So,... that plugin is a no no for me.

    RSS Feed Import

    Hello! is there any news on this - does something already exist, a plugin maybe? thank you very much in advance! @joshuaj what i am searching for is something that will take the latest WP posts, and show them in IPB board, ideally with an image and a title!

    (NB41) Enhanced Advertisements

    Hello Newbie Lac! I just got advice from support saying this method only works for images but not for code tags. They referred me to you 🙂 can you give me directions how to best implement code a for desktop code b for tablet code c for mobile ? for the same placement ? ) am now just testing it on "After post 1 " placement but at a later time will want to implement this also on other placements via your app and plugin

    Default Guest Language

    Hello @Fosters is this plugin compatible with 4.3 ? thank you!
  9. I understand. This is my concern too. From my perpective if you cooperate with known developers who are respected, they will always be heads-on with the updates and i guess this shows a certain kind of professionalism. I have seen that from the ones i have purchased items from. So, maybe sometimes the plugins are not that ill fated as we may fear. I think also that through the plugins that are used more often, and successfully, the invision team might see how many actually need a feature and maybe actually do incorporate it in their suite if it also is tested by the many users that already have been using the plugin. This is just an hypotheses ofcourse 🙂
  10. for me , a) sending a warning can have all the info about the why a post was hidden by a mod (i have many warning texts depending on reasons ) b) if i dont want to send a warning, and the why is too obvious, or part of a simpler list , the plugin @TDBF has made helps the member to know what has happened. his plugin sends an automatic custom message, whenever you hide a post, (via the queue or via a thread) that will instantly inform your member that his post was hidden/removed and can include this simple list of reasons of why it must have happened i.e. double post, other problems very convenient, so either with a or b, your members will be notified no matter what. @Mr 13 i think the plugin tdbf made really answers the need @daveoh mentioned ! I agree it should/could be nice if it would be part of the suite!

    Topics By Tags

    This is an amazing tool, how you use it, depends on how your subjects are spread in your forum - the good thing is that it very much works as a teaser especially if you put frequently used tags in your forum, as the extra tabs. first tab is always all the latest topics, and second third fourth etc tabs, are the tags you choose. I have set a "suggested" tag, with topics that i think are the first topics a new member should participate in, for example , for the first get-to-know post, or frequent questions - thread, must - read topics etc. very thankful that Adriano has added the no-follow option, since from what i have read about google's policy, any group of links/keywords that repeat themselves exactly inside every page, (as any widget with links that are the same, or tag-clouds) is not a good thing for seo and pagerank.
  12. Hello, this happened to us once, and we could save it with only creating a permanent 301 redirect for the old existing link, (that was appearing in search results and was a frequently used topic with backlinks to it) Moderators, usually are needed to merge new topics into existing old ones, so as to not have double discussions of the same subject, and to guide new members to the older existing answers where they can read or ask more. Its a relatively not risky permission to give to a moderator. When you merge topic B into topic A the url link of the topic you selected (B) is deleted. Old links though, have an importance with seo. So when you merge an old topic into a new topic, you are distroying a link and creating a 404 error page, where you wouldnt want one. This isnt good when it happens accidentally or even unknowingly, if a moderator is not aware of it or just does not care and does otherwise. A warning that would appear when you try to merge an older topic into a new one, would be useful, saying You are trying to merge an old topic into a new one - are you sure you want to do this; and / or even: This will mean the old url (and all the backlinks you have on it) will stop working/existing and you will get a 404 page on it.

    (DP42) Custom Bad Words Filter

    Its very useful, invisions own in-built filter does NOT include already posted words, so this plugin is filing an important gap there - with it you can remove any given bad word (or other word you need removed for legal or other reasons) within all of your already existing content. This should be a core feature!

    TDB Hiding Posts

    very useful - and its kind to your members you can notify them that they will be informed shortly about the specific reason of the hiding of their post... or you can have the automatic pm that is beeing sent, already containing a set of rules saying "oh, no, 🙂you must have done one of those things a) b) c) so we had to hide your post! if there is something more to it, you will get a warning that includes the specific reason! " i think its a great feature that the suite would benefit having by default!
  15. For me, our website has 88% organic traffic, and 65% percent mobile use. We are not running pages, we would need it in the forum. We are running MANY plugins, that run ads, make language appear the way we want it, and all that is crucial.. So 1) if we would go amp, we would still get good traffic but wont be able to monetize it so well, and maybe should change our model. 2) if we dont go amp, traffic will worsen, but monetizing still will be the same As someone else noted, the web is a forever changing platform. I d rather be preparing for change from now on, than wait until everyone else has moved forward . we would be interested for amp on the Forum and NOT only for guests. For us it would be all right if the user gets a message that shows him, maybe the first 5 posts of the thread in amp, as a teaser and if he wants to read more, then him seeing this text/having to press on a button: "this version of our site is read only, so that you can enjoy faster use. if you want to read more answers, send pm, comment, search, visit our non-amp site so that you can benefit from all " would that be possible? its something that should be tested....! .. @opentype i find your approach very interesting, is it depending on those percentages i am mentioning in the beginning? does something change with that or you think not? do you have any recommendations (discussions) specific to invision forum, about the fastness/loading time of the website for all of us who try to optimize more in the shadow of the amp fastness ?:-) . anything will be appreciated!
