  1. So, it seems members of the +Clients group are the only ones still blessed with these red pips: I remember them being used by everyone and their mother back when the name of the software was IP.Board. But what is the purpose of these small squared pips today? They are not present on non-client members, and those who do get them get the same amount of pips. Is it simply an oversight, or a reminder of something that once was? Questions like this keep me up at night. 🤔
  2. Any comment, @Matt or @Lindy? Surely this can't be an issue limited to only a few unlucky visitors. SSL Labs marked the certificate as invalid from four different servers, and other SSL testing tools did the same. I understand that you might not be able to reproduce the security warnings, but there are clearly some issues with the certificate or your load balancing setup.
  3. If I accept the security risk (in Firefox) and continue, I no longer see the warning. Maybe everyone at IPS has already accepted the certificate? Anyways, the certificate on community.invisionpower.com is not valid. See the test results from SSL Labs: Edit: The actual test results:
  4. I don't know if this is the right place to report bugs with this community, but here goes. Links in the descriptions for the following forums point to an old domain (community.invisionpower.com), resulting in security warnings and in one case a 404 error: https://invisioncommunity.com/forums/forum/320-client-lounge/ https://invisioncommunity.com/forums/forum/442-contributor-chat/ The links in questions are: http://community.invisionpower.com/forum/307-ips-customer-services/ http://community.invisionpower.com/forum/451-community-resources/ (dead) http://
  5. I'd just like to add that I'm currently working on a huge update for 4.5, hopefully to be released later this weekend or early next week.
  6. For everyone else, I'm currently working on a huge update with support for 4.5. The new version will be an application instead of a plugin, as this makes it far easier to provide new functionality. In addition to official support for 4.5, I'm working on the following new features: Choose between multiple markers when marking a topic. Set custom background color and text color on the marker badges. Choose marker badge position (before or after topic title). Send notifications to topic starters when their topics are marked and/or unmarked. Support for "Question
  7. I haven't tested Clubs, but I'll take a look! That's a good idea, I'll see if I can make this an option. I'm working on a new version now, hopefully released later this week or early next week. What you're describing here is the built-in tags feature, though I'm not sure if you can require one or more tags. My plugin currently does not and will probably never allow you to mark a topic with more than one marker. I'll take a look, but I don't think that's something this plugin will be able to provide. After all, the plugin is named Mark Topic, not Mark Topics and
  8. A personal message will create a conversation on your community, so if the member replies you'll get their answer to your inbox (or the inbox of the member you set as sender). If you send an email, the conversation and their replies will not be a part of your community. I had the same issue, and posted about it on page 27: https://invisioncommunity.com/forums/topic/410417-auto-welcome-support/?do=findComment&comment=2830633 Not currently possible, it seems.
  9. I love the design, @bchan009! But for me (Safari 13 on macOS 10.15) the background image flashes on every page load. Are you aware of this?
  10. I believe it might, as the map style used by default by Invision Community is streets-v10, while the supported style is streets-v11.
  11. Interesting, that article gave me the impression that WebP is not the wonder child of image formats I thought it was.
  12. Have you set it up to be sent immediately or with a delay? And have you checked both the Error and System logs?
  13. Until the plugin isn't updated anymore, as the numerous topics here over the last weeks have shown. I don't want to argue with you. I respect you and highly appreciate your valuable work. You have your opinion on this and I have mine, and we'll probably never agree and that's fine. I only want to tell others reading this topic that editing a template file isn't necessarily a bad thing, as long as you know what it means for future updates. Your argument is that editing the template means you'll have to do it again after every update or risk being outdated. My counterargument is that edi
  14. Then we've got different priorities, and that's obviously okay. For me it's a waste of time to look for, install, and keep updated a plugin when all it does is add four lines to a template. Also, I fail to see the issue with editing the templates. Why wouldn't that be okay, if you're comfortable with it and know what you're doing (and what it means when you update)? The updater will tell you exactly which templates are outdated, and with two clicks you'll see what's new and what changes you'll have to make. The whole point of the templates is being able to customize them to your liking. I
  15. It'll only take you a few minutes to click "Show default" after an update and make the necessary changes to the template.
  16. @JTHastings and @James101: Would you be able to be a bit more specific regarding what doesn't work? It works for me (finally), with PMs sent immediately to new members.
  17. If you only plan to host a blog, not use the forum or any of the other applications, then there are far better options. But if you really want to use Invision Community, have you considered their cloud option? If not, it should be easily installed on every serious hosting provider.
  18. You don't need a plugin to show the number of views in the topic summary. Simply add the following four lines to the theme file forums > topics > activity: <li class='cTopicOverview__statItem ipsType_center'> <span class='cTopicOverview__statTitle ipsType_light ipsTruncate ipsTruncate_line'>{lang="views"}</span> <span class='cTopicOverview__statValue'>{number="$topic->views" format="short"}</span> </li> Insert the code on line 18, and the number of views will be shown next to the number of replies:
  19. I don't think we're using the same versions. According to your themes, you must be on version 4.4.x, right?
  20. That's weird, I'm using 4.5.3 as well. Have you given yourself permission to promote topics and posts? Here is an image of the "Promote" button (it's translated, so "Fremhev" means "Promote") in the section above posts: And an image of the ACP menu:
  21. Isn’t this easily fixable by editing the theme yourself?
  22. Both topics and single posts can be promoted! To promote a topic you'll have to click the "Promote" (or translated) button at the top, to the left of the "Follow" button. If the topic or post contains images you can include those, and I believe they'll show up on Facebook. Or, to set a default image to be used when no other images are available, you simply edit your theme go to Customization > Appearance > Icons and Logos and upload "Default share images".
  23. I don't think you can do it automatically without using third-party plugins, but you can use Promotion to share topics and posts to your Facebook group. Edit: I've never used IFTTT in combination with Invision Community, and the Zapier integration is not yet available.
  24. I'll make you a plugin to automatically embed Imgur content. Give me a few hours and I'll message you!
