    Trying to get a handle on that now, will get back with an update as soon as I know more.

    Let me know if there is anything I can do to help!

    Does not work on 4.4.10 does work fine on 4.5.4 I installed it ok on my 4.5 test board and then installed it on my live 4.4.10 board so I could upgrade it when I upgrade that board to 4.5

    I'll see if I have a copy of 4.4.10 somewhere to test. Do you get any error messages or does nothing happen at all?

    Any advice?

    Which version of Invision Community are you using? And does this happen with any other plugins you try to install? Also, could you take a look at your System Logs and Error Logs, in the ACP?

    Is https://wordpress.org/ right idea for a blog?

    WordPress is an option, yes. It depends on your requirements and plans for the future of the blog, but WordPress should work well.

    Pages is amazing and powerful. It allows for you to build a community around your blog as you grow.

    I agree, but for a basic blog without any significant community features there are far better options. It's like living in the city and driving a huge SUV everywhere. Yes, it works, but maybe a smaller car would be better?

  4. For this years Black Friday Sale, and because I'm in a good mood, this plugin will be completely offered at a quite significant discount (33% off) for the duration of the sale. Get it while you can!

  5. As mentioned earlier in the topic, there is a bug when sending private messages to members after X hours. If you set the message to send immediately after signup, nothing bad happens. If you set any delay, it will send the message to everyone.

    This is a bug, not a missing option. I just hope @Michael.J responds soon, as this can be quite serious.

  6. What’s new in version 2.0.0:

    The plugin is now an application! This means a new location in the ACP (under the "Community" section), but apart from that everything should work as before. When updating, the application will automatically move all of your markers and marked topics to the new database so you won't loose anything. After the update is complete, the old plugin will be uninstalled and removed.

    Another change is the price. The new price — which only affects new purchases — is $15 plus a small renewal fee of $7.50/6 months. This will ensure the application is kept up to date with new versions of Invision Community, and give me room to add new features when suggested by you, my customers. The total price for one year will be around $0.08 per day, which I think is acceptable.

    Now, let's take a closer look at the changelog:

    New features

    • Users can now choose between multiple markers when marking a topic, if multiple markers are available.
    • Notifications will be sent to topic authors when their topics are marked and/or unmarked by anyone else.


    • Added options to customize marker badge background color and text color.
    • Added option to customize marker badge position (before or after topic title).
    • Added option to show marker text in topic page titles.
    • Added live preview of marker badge style when creating and editing markers in the ACP.
    • Added option to prevent members from unmarking topics.


    • Fixed marker badges displaying incorrectly (in some cases not displaying at all) in "Question" forums.
    • Fixed a few small annoyances in the markers sections of the ACP.
    • Improved the handling of marked topics in the database.
  7. 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:

    The links in questions are:

    There are possible alternatives. Mark Topic for 4.4 works ok on 4.5

    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.

    One of my sites is about clinical pathology.  One vendor was being sued by another vendor over price fixing.  They felt my site may have discussed these two vendors and their price fixing schemes (we hadn't) and the offended vendor subpoenaed my database.  Not a big deal, I just sent them a copy of the database.

    Thank you for the explanation! I assume you're not in the EU, as sending a copy of the database to a third-party would be a rather big deal for me. With that being said, I understand your decision.

    I've been sued once and was required to turn over my database, I'm sure it can happen again.

    I'm interested in hearing more about this. Is this something you can and want to talk about?

  11. 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 "Questions" forums.

    I hope to release the new version later this week or early next week.

    Suggestions for more features are always welcome!

    1. It support clubs forums? 

    I haven't tested Clubs, but I'll take a look!

    2. After each mark action, it will send notification to followers? 

    That's a good idea, I'll see if I can make this an option.

    3. When it will upgraded to 4.5?

    I'm working on a new version now, hopefully released later this week or early next week.

    4. Can I set some marks as required when members create a topic? But it should be selectable for specific forum. Then moderators change the marker? Example, required member set markers "Bug" or "Issue" for club topic, then if the topic receives solution or meet some criteria, moderators add one mark more before the "Bug". Finally the topic will contains 2 markers, the newest should appear before the oldest. 

    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.

    Could you add marks available for post? After a post is Marked, the Marker badge and 3 lines post content appear in the Topic Summary as redirect link to the original post? 

    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 Posts. 😄

    What's the difference between sending a Personal Message or an Email. If I send the former, they already get an email notification. Is this redundant or am I missing something?

    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.

    Is there a way to only apply this plugin's settings for new members? I turned it on and it automatically sent a million email messages and status updates that I had to delete?

    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

    For the status updates and topics section (since they're public) is there a way to have 4 or 5 variations of "canned" text that it could automatically cycle through? The way it is now, our members will see that I type the exact same message to new members and that will look a little weird.

    Not currently possible, it seems.
