  1. very exciting stuff... I see the CSV option (YEA) in stats (Registrations) ... I hope this means we'll see some improvements in Reporting 😜
  2. Great to see these changes 👍 I also love the neutral theme color/style choices. I'm hungry for this release!!
  3. What's New in Version 1.0.4 Fixed bug when having multiple languages. Public Name is now a required field. Added a new option to Restrict Group Type as either Primary or Secondary Groups. (Previously, it was set up as default.) Minor CSS/Template changes when displaying group icons in Profile. Added error messages when appropriate Some language changes
  4. Thank you for posting this. It saves me a lot of time.
  5. @fix3r It's actually possible but you will have to edit your postContainer template.
  6. There are no special "fields" for members to fill out after joining a group. They just have the option to join group. The same options are found in Registration as well. There is no "confirmation process". The goal here is to make it as easy as possible for members to take action. When a member joins a Public Group(s) we can use this information to onboard the members. For example, we can use Bulk Mail or Announcements to target specific groups. With this information we can easily onboard the members to take whatever action that you want them to take. ie. fill out a form
  7. UPDATED TO VERSION 1.0.2 Fixed bug with Public Name not savingFixed bug with Account Settings tab showing when no Public Groups existMade a minor change to groups in templates to display smaller text (ipsType_small)
  8. This is our first PAID APP. To help celebrate, we are launching with a SPECIAL BLACK FRIDAY SALE PRICE. BUY FOR $15 (25% off)
  9. The IPS Groups system is POWERFUL. It’s the best way to reward contributors. But, it’s missing some features. For starters, allowing members to join certain Groups can provide you with additional data. It will also help members connect with like-minded individuals. When you provide a mechanism for members to join public groups you empower them. You give them the choice to choose what's best for them. This is one way to retain members and increase engagement. FEATURES in Members | Group Enhancements NEW: Option to edit the Public Name of each group. The Public Name of a group is the name displayed on the frontend (to your users). Let's say you may want to break up your Members group into newcomers and active. Normally, the community would notice two new groups when doing this but with GTMG they could still see 'Members' (Public Name for each group). NEW: Option to set a group as Secondary Group Only. I have 20+ years experience in managing a forum. I can tell you from experience, adding new groups (and members to groups) can be a daunting task. The best thing to do is to CLEARLY separate your Primary from your Secondary groups. Use Primary Group as the base when it comes to options and permissions. Use Secondary Groups to add (options/permissions) to the base. NEW: Option to display multiple group badges in Profiles and Posts. Group Badges will be a favorite in your community. The minute you put this up on your site your members will ask you “What are these badges?” and “How can I get one?” NEW: Option to hotlink badges in Profiles and Posts. Link could go to a landing page explaining the group (selling its benefits, why it exists, etc) or you could link to the Directory or a Club. The goal is to inform your audience about each group. For example, we have a badge linked to the store (for premium group), another to our "group badges" page, and another linked to a page for recruiting influencers. NEW: Option to create “Public Groups”. This option empowers members to join the group(s) they best fit in. Members can join Public Groups via Registration and Account Settings. It’s getting harder to get users to share personal information. I use Public Groups as a way to get information that I can use for business purposes. For example, if I ask members via Registration or Account Settings which military branch they belong to it will likely be ignored. But, if I create Public Groups for Army, Air Force, Marines, and Navy they are more likely to take action. NEW: Option to create a directory of your favorite Groups. Directory can be a standalone feature or integrated within the Leaderboard page. I personally use this to attract influencers. It’s sorted by activity so the more active they are the more eyeballs on them. This increases participation in the group. BONUS To help you with your Groups Management, we are providing you with the following additional features: Group Options (Permissions) Matrix - An efficient way to compare static values Sort Groups - Sort groups per personal choice. TIPS ✔️ It’s best to use small Group Badges when displaying multiple badges in posts. ✔️ Members will have questions regarding your Public Groups. The best thing to do is to create an information page and hotlink the badges to the page. ✔️ When you enable Directory, keep ‘Time Limit’ and ‘Page Limit’ low. On large sites, a high setting may cause the page to load slower. ✔️ Use the new groups to your advantage. Use Bulk Email to target specific groups. For example, you can onboard the New Member group. SIMPLIFIED FEATURE SET Backend (ACP) New Group Settings Public Name - Display different Group Name on the frontend. Description - Add a group description to use for Group Directory. Landing Page URL - Allows admin to hotlink Group Badge to a page. eg. directory or custom page Set As Secondary Group - Restricts group as secondary group only. Public Group? - Allow members to join group Show in Directory - Control which groups can be found in Group Directory. Sort Groups Frontend/Backend - Sort groups per personal choice. Compare Group Options Matrix - A quick way to compare static values. Frontend Members can join 'Public Groups' during Registration Members can edit 'Public Groups' in Account Settings Group Badges (multiple) in Posts Group Badges (multiple) in Profile Group Directory Can use as standalone feature Can integrate with Leaderboard Can choose default index group GETTING STARTED Install App Edit each Group in Members > Groups Public Name (required) Show in Directory Directory SEO Slug Group Description Group Landing Page URL Set As Secondary Group Only Set As Public Group Now, go to Members > [GT] Groups Settings. IMPORTANT: If you have a custom style some of the template changes may not work properly. If this happens to you just private message me and I will help.

  11. 2 things could be happening... You added the css in the wrong stylesheet. Or, something is overwriting it. Try using... font-size:48px !important;
  12. Short and to the point - sharing it (without the emojis)!
  13. Follow the above instructions. Be aware that SendGrid has different options.
  14. The more I look at this it's likely IPS decided to not breadcrumb the landing pages (makes sense)... but, the "forums" breadcrumb does show for the Forums landing page. (We should follow one or the other. Either have it on landing page or not.) The breadcrumb for category pages are really screwed up on Google. It shows the page slug instead of the category title. Maybe this is something with Google and not really IPS?? Or, maybe it's the lack of info in the structured markup ??
  15. I'm not sure if this is an oversight, a bug, or "working as designed"... But a complete BreadcrumbList does not show in category pages. Take for example... The BreadcrumbList (html source) for https://invisioncommunity.com/forums/forum/307-community-led-resources/ is <script type='application/ld+json'> { "@context": "http://schema.org", "@type": "BreadcrumbList", "itemListElement": [ { "@type": "ListItem", "position": 1, "item": { "@id": "https://invisioncommunity.com/forums/", "name": "Forums" } } ] } </script> Shouldn't it be 2 levels deep? Like... <script type='application/ld+json'> { "@context": "http://schema.org", "@type": "BreadcrumbList", "itemListElement": [ { "@type": "ListItem", "position": 1, "item": { "@id": "https://invisioncommunity.com/forums/", "name": "Forums" } }, { "@type": "ListItem", "position": 2, "item": { "@id": "https://invisioncommunity.com/forums/forum/307-community-led-resources/", "name": "Community Led Resources" } } ] } </script> Anyway, this causes the following problems in Google SERPs... The first result goes to https://invisioncommunity.com/forums/forum/307-community-led-resources/ The second result goes to https://invisioncommunity.com/forums/forum/503-customization-resources/
