    Submit a ticket and we'll take a look. I haven't seen this happen before.

    I just installed and I’m testing on my board. Invoice will expire in 24hs. I’ll let you know how it goes and will release a fix if necessary.

    These are some common feature suggestions from my community regarding the clubs feature.  A lot of them are based around giving club owners more control over their own clubs and members. If there are any plugins/apps that can provide any of these functions, please point me in the right direction!
    Move "Edit this x" option from the drop-down menu to a button next to the tab title.  The current placement for the edit option when a member wants to edit a specific club tab is not too user-friendly. Most would not know that they would have to click the club management menu just to make changes to one specific tab. An example of the new placement can be found on the calendar tab, which has a settings cog next to the tab title that is pretty useless since it has nothing to do with settings, which also confuses members. Add content creation permissions on the club level. Currently, there is no way for a club owner to set who can create topics in a forum tab, who can submit images in a gallery tab, and so on and so forth. It's basically all one blanket permission for the entire club which we get many complaints about. Some want forum tabs for informational purposes, or galleries to showcase their own artwork as a portfolio, for example. Ability for Owners/leaders/mods to mention the club member group and add club mentions as a notification setting option.  This is a popular feature request due to platforms like Discord that allow you to tag members based on user groups/roles. People prefer to be mentioned or "tagged" for important replies instead of following content and getting spammed with notifications for every reply or action performed. Allow club owners the ability to change the club type on the frontend. (Public/Open/Closed/Private/Read Only) I'm not even sure why this doesn't exist already? Any other platform I've been apart of that had some kind of group system allowed owners to be able to change this freely. Currently, our members have to submit a support ticket for us to change it via the ACP and this is a need we would like to eliminate. It's common for owners to create a private group so that they can take the time to set it up before opening it up for invitations. Add membership tiers. Some of them would love to use our clubs as Patreon/Ko-Fi alternatives, but are held back by there only being one membership fee option. Allowing them to create however many tiers they need personally would be great, but if that's not possible, having at least 3 tier options built-in would be a great compromise for now. Then some permissions to choose who can view which club tabs based on their membership level would round this out. Ability to hide the "Overview" tab. Quite simply, some don't like it and would prefer to hide it, but this one isn't that important.   Edit to clarify: With the ability to create custom pages added to clubs, they now prefer making custom pages as the new overview page without the activity feed, so that they can stylize it however they like with the use of tables and css.  The overview tab becomes redundant and some owners would like to just hide it if they've chosen to replace it with a custom page.

    Everyone here has great points to make, and I'm leaning more to the side of it just being a custom thing that the few communities who would need it could take advantage of it rather than it being suite-wide.
    While my community has thousands of members on the LGBTQ+ spectrum, I wouldn't want this or have it enabled either. I've seen first hand what these pronoun labels invite on social media, such as Twitter and TikTok.  It basically puts a target on the person's back for anyone who disagrees with anything that isn't cisgender or heterosexual.  No amount of tools, staff, or community management style can effectively suppress that behavior. There are numerous studies that show how toxic social media in general is and how despite best efforts, this will never change until people themselves change. This will never happen because, well, humans.
    Right now, we have a couple custom fields that invite members to provide information about themselves in a broader sense.  If they're comfortable enough to add that in, great, but I don't want them to feel pressured in any shape or form by having multiple fields for individual traits.

    ahc reacted to Sonya* in CKEditor 4 end of life - alternative editor consideration   
    I think there are two different use cases:
    Editor for user-generated content. Should be simple, not too many options, clear and foolproof. I think that the actual IPS editor fulfills the requirement. Editor for articles wrote by admin. Should be powerful, have many options (text positioning, blocks, columns, grids, custom code pieces, custom styles, extendable with SEO and other plugins, have additional extensions via Marketplace etc.) For this case, the actual IPS editor is not enough.

    Quick report,
    With this enabled, we can't merge member accounts.  We receive an error halfway through and some information will have been merged while some won't, and both accounts will still exist with duplicated information.
    Merging works fine when we temporarily disable it.

    Having the rank image there period is kinda ugly.  Something I'll def remove if we upgrade to 4.6.  Post profiles in general are really lacking structure and it's not cohesive at all in the style.  For example on this website, you have rather large blurry rank images on top of small circular profile photos, the contributor image has weird capsule shading, the Invision Staff image looks like someone randomly screenshotted a logo from somewhere else, and the client pips... The staff badge is also kinda useless since there are multiple other visual cues that make it obvious someone is staff.
    First impression is that a handful of people all had very different ideas and someone allowed them all to contribute one thing each to make them happy.  🤣  Unless they reorganize some things or maybe even make the profile photo larger, it all just looks like clutter to me.  I've heavily edited my postcontainer template to get rid of the everything-center approach.

    ahc got a reaction from Maxxius in Group Mention   
    Just wanted to drop a note here that after testing on both our live and test site, it seems groups with a lot of members causes issues.  Data below.
    Moderator Group
    Members: 21
    Error: None
    Notification Verification: All moderators received a notification that they had been mentioned in test topic.
    Member Group
    Members: 4591
    Error: A redirect to a generic 500 server error occurs after attempting to mention this group.  A page refresh will show that the post/mention was actually created even though you receive this error redirect.  I'm assuming this error shows up due to timing out, but I'm only speculating and could be wrong.  My assumption is based on the website being stuck in some sort of loading/pending stage after hitting the submit button for about 10+ seconds before it finally gives up and errors out.
    Notification Verification: No one could verify that a notification was received with proper notification settings applied.  I asked roughly 60 members and also checked random accounts for the notification and couldn't find a record of one.
    Secondary Member Group  (Promoted to this group after x amount of content.)
    Members: 871
    Error: None
    Notification Verification: Several members verified a notification was received.
    Additional Notes: The website hesitates for about 5 or so seconds compared to the moderator test, but the mention is sent without error nonetheless.
     
    Similar test results were received on the test site with the exception of being able to verify the large group issue due to not having that many accounts for the test.  Is this something on my end I'll need to look further into or is the application itself struggling to keep up when the group count hits a certain number?

    The notification I received of the update almost made me jump up and down.  I'm so HAPPY to have this application back!  Downloading it as we speak to fully test it out.  
    Update:  I am back after some extensive testing with the filter options.  Most of my tests went through without issue which is amazing, but there were a couple that didn't work as intended.  I'll be posting my results below for the ones that didn't work.  Please let me know if it's because I did something wrong or if the filter option isn't working correctly.
    -----------------
    Test #1 
    Filters: I selected all of our administrator and moderator groups with the "Groups" filter option.  All other options left at default. 

    Results: It says it sent to 21 users, but none of those 21 that should have received it did.  However, I tested this again after some other tests and they did receive it, so I'm not sure if that was a one-time hiccup or what.  I'll let you know if it happens again.
    Test #2 
    Filters: I selected Administrators & Moderators with the "Member Type" filter option.  All other options left at default.

    Results: It sent the notification to everyone in the default new member group assigned after registration.  (Currently 13,650 users are in that group.)  The admins and mods did not receive the notification.  I deleted the test after taking the screenshot so it would not be sitting in their notification list.
    Test #5
    Filters: I selected a subscription option with the "Member has purchased a Subscription" filter and checked that it only counted expired subscriptions from any time.  All other options left at default.

    Results: It once again sent the notification to everyone in the default new member group assigned after registration instead of filtering it to those with the expired subscription option selected.  The notification should have only been sent to a few thousand people total.
