  1. Great point. They look a bit blurry at the small size. I assume we can upload our own images for all the badges, but would be good if the built-in badges looked sharper and clearer.
  2. Seems like a great new feature - thanks to all those involved! I do agree with several previous comments that being able to 'spend' points would really take this to the next level though. The badges are a very nice touch, but I suspect they will appeal mostly to the community's existing power users. Whereas if the points could be integrated with commerce and downloads, it could become really powerful. Seems really promising though. 🙂
  3. @Jordan InvisionI know this is more of a bug than an idea, but I would be keen to hear your thoughts on this. Surely there should be the option to hide the 'buy now' button after someone has purchased it, since a lot of Downloads files are not things that need a license and to be bought multiple times.
  4. I understand there may be some cases where purchasing multiple versions of the same file is needed, but surely for the majority of sites that is not the case? I thought it was a glitch - I can't believe this is a built in feature that can't be adjusted. @AtariAgejust wondering if you found a workaround, or @Adriano Fariaif you created a plugin around this? I just find it really odd that there wouldn't even be an option to disable the buy now button after someone has bought the file.
  5. Agreed! I've seen this suggested several times before here, and personally I would definitely use this. Ideally the option to re-arrange emoji categories (especially putting custom emojis higher up), and even customise which emojis show in the emoji box, rather than a simple yes/no of whether to show emojis. Right now you either have to have thousands of them, or none of them.
  6. Is the downloads cart you had made available for download/purchase? Or is it specifically customised for your site? I really feel it's an important feature that's sadly missing in the core software, and looks like you first requested it 4 years ago.
  7. Completely agree. I would love to see both of the following options: Only display individual forums for clubs that the member has already joined (so rather than them seeing all 50 clubs in this scenario, they would just see the ones they've joined and are actually interested in). Have one category/forum for 'clubs' within traditional forum view, and then once you click on that, have a list of all clubs (essentially the same as the sub-forum idea @AlexWebsitesalready suggested - although I think it would need to operate very slightly differently to normal sub-forums, because it would still look a little messy in traditional forum view homepage having 50+ sub-forums). Either way, for communities with a lot of clubs, the forum view just isn't practical with the current setup.
  8. The Tag cloud in this is great, but as mentioned above, sadly the app has been abandoned. Would be nice to see IPS incorporate a tag cloud widget by default, as we found it was a really popular feature. And if we're really dreaming here, it would be even better to have the option within the widget of whether to show all tags for the entire site, or specifically tags for the current app. By which I mean, if you're in the gallery, you could opt to have the tag cloud show only tags used in the gallery, and when clicking on a tag, only show gallery items with that tag. Same would apply if the widget was used on the forums, or in downloads and so on. But either way, any sort of tag cloud (that shows a clickable list of all the different tags used) would be a really useful feature.
  9. Thanks for clarifying. My initial instinct was that I must be missing something, as it's the kind of thing you'd just assume would be included - which probably suggests it would be a very useful feature. I imagine if this were an option at least, there's a lot of Downloads customers who would want to enable this for their sites. From a user perspective, I am far more likely to buy multiple things at once, than go through the checkout individually one at a time (especially for small cheap files). I'd probably use this feature on the IPS marketplace too. I can already imagine adding a couple of themes & plugins to my basket as a bit of a shortlist, then ordering them (all at once) later on. The topic of chargebacks came up recently as well - this would help with that. It would be better for someone to buy several things in one transaction, than lots of things in separate transactions, as that significantly increases the total amount of chargeback risk & fees that could be incurred.
  10. Thanks, that's great to know! Presumably the admin cp lazy loading setting has to be enabled for the loading="lazy" code to work? We are in an odd situation where we actually don't want lazy loading for forum attachments, but would like it in other areas like profile pictures.
  11. Maybe I am missing something, as I agree it would be surprising if it wasn't a thing already. But within downloads, I can only find 'buy now' button, and so you have to enter your address, payment details, and checkout every single time. As opposed to a normal online shop where you'd press 'add to basket', then browse through other files and maybe add a couple of others too before checking out all in one go. Much more convenient for the user. But also likely lower fees and more sales for the site owner.
  12. I am surprised there has not been more momentum behind this request. Individually checking out for every download item surely reduces the chances of bulk buying. An 'add to cart' button would be incredibly useful.
  13. Exactly. Option to have custom emoji at the top would make so much more sense. I also feel it would be good to be able to choose which emoji appear in the emoji box. Obviously all emojis could still be used on the site, as people could use the built-in emoji keyboard on their device. But in the emoji box in the editor, we don't really need 100s of flags and symbols to be loaded every time - would be nice if we could just select which emojis to show in the emoji box in the editor, since a tiny fraction of them get used.
  14. Could you confirm what you're using to achieve this please? Is it a plugin from the marketplace? And have you found it had any negative impact on SEO, or can you allow crawlers full access still? Thanks!
