  1. I built websites back in 1996 when the web was just getting going and I've been in tech since that time. I'm not stupid dude. I know it's basic stuff but it's the language used by the developer of this app/plugin. It has nothing to do with my technical abilities. I'm just trying to figure out how he's using those two terms. I appreciate your replies.
  2. So when I go to my inbox when I'm in the forums and I send a message that way, is that (according to the Auto Welcome settings) an email or a PM? I'm guessing from what you said it's the latter. So if I send a regular email from within the forum software and they hit reply in their email, where does their email end up?
  3. Thanks @iacasI can change the H to an M but not sure how to change the cron table. Is it easy? Within the forum software I have an inbox where I can send "emails" to other members. I'm guessing that @Michael.Jis calling this a personal message and an email is an actual email that ends up in a person's gmail or yahoo account? Because neither of those things are status updates. I know the difference between email and PM but not in how they're being used in the description of this plugin/app. I hope that makes sense.
  4. Hey @Michael.Jis there a way to add a minutes setting? Like maybe 5 or 10 minutes instead of an hour? Is there a way to auto follow new members while turning off the make public option? Right now I manually send personal emails within Invision and also follow all new members. This way I know that anybody I'm following, I've also sent a welcome email to. But I uncheck the box that asks me to make my following them public. Is that possible? What's the difference between a PM and an email? Both have subject lines. Finally is there a way to create templates for status updates? Since other forum members can read them, it would be nice to type out 5 or 10 different templates so that people don't think I'm using automated software? Thanks!
  5. @Michael.J one question. I used the plugin a couple months ago and it it automatically send a thousand welcome posts (that were public and it took me hours to delete all of them) as well as welcome emails. If I upgrade the plugin and reactivate it, will it do the same? If not, how do I turn that setting off? Thanks!
  6. I do have that field here! 🙂 And here's what it looks like. We have over 1200 people in our Invision Community and I'm still a little unsure about how to add them all to the map. Do they do it, or can I run a process and add them automatically? I just updated to your latest version and it works great! Thank you @Martin A. Is it possible for you to have a different group that they get put into if they cancel? We have a group called "Non Members" that people get put into if they cancel or pause their account. This would be great because the map would only show our "Active Members" so it will be more accurate.
  7. Hello @Martin A. I have a couple of questions before I purchase.... Will a person be able to search by zip code, city, state or zip? For example can I search 5 or 10 miles from where I live to see if a member is in that area? I'm guessing I might have to pair your plugin with this one to pull this off? What happens if a member cancels or pauses (we use Memberpress along with the SSO plugin to sync up their Memberpress account to their IC account) their account? Is there a way to make sure they're no longer included in the map and results? Do I have to manually add members (or have them add themselves?) or can it happen automatically? We have over 1,100 current members and don't want to have to add them all manually myself. Thank you! Justin
  8. Ya it's crazy. It ruined my night last week. I had to spend horus fixing it! I don't know why a setting like that wouldn't have been put in from the start. Hopefully @Michael.J sees this and adds a workaround or update of some kind!
  9. @optrexnz I had the same problem. It took me hours to fix so I disabled it. I wanted to have a setting or checkbox that could apply to new members only. I'm not using it until that happens cause that ate up 2 hours out of my day! @Michael.J
  10. Thanks @Runar Is there an option in the works (or live) that would apply these setting for any "new" members rather than anybody who joined in the past @Michael.J?
  11. @Nathan Explosion you're the man. Thank you. Just upgraded and it works like a charm! Now I'm going to test it on the front end!
  12. Hey @Nathan Explosion I'm guessing this is what's happening here? If that's the case, would you be able to send me the patch file? Thanks!
  13. @Nathan Explosion they take their sweet time don't they?! 😉
  14. @Michael.J 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? 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. thanks!!
  15. @Michael.J I just installed your Auto Welcome app. Very slick! 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? Thanks! Justin
  16. @Nathan Explosion thisi s awesome! I have 4.5. Can I install it even though it says previous versions? Exciting!
  17. @Michael.J I have a couple questions before I buy. I looked at your first screenshot and it seems pretty complex. Here's what I want to do... On the 16th of each month we start a new 30 day cycle of questions people can ask us in a certain forum. I want to only allow 25 questions (or new topics) to be asked and/or lock the topic at 30 days, whichever comes first. When the topic is locked, I'd love to be able to edit or add some text telling our members what to do next. Would be even better if I could add a video too, but text would be good too. Can your plugin do this? UPDATE: I just purchased your plugin but not sure how I adjust the settings (the term filter is confusing to me) to only allow 25 topics per forum. Also how do I test it as an administrator.
  18. @Adriano FariaI hope this will work for us. We have a particular forum where members can ask us questions. We only want to take 25 questions per month total. Will this pluging be able to lock a forum or prevent there from being more than 25 questions? I see above you mentioned it's per member not per forum.
  19. @Adriano Faria this is exactly what I need. Is there a way to edit or customize the error text when the maximum number of topics are reached? I'd like to give specific instructions on what to do next. Our members aren't very computer savvy and they'll think something is wrong with our forum!
  20. Hello @Boris_ I sent you a private message about your community member applications and if they'll be updated to version 4.5 of IC. Was curious when that might happen? Thanks!

      Hi sorry for the delay in getting back to you. I've just replied to your message, but just to say here too: I have just submitted updates which set all of my plugins as 4.5 compatible, however no changes were required. IPS needs to review all plugins with 4.5 compatibility, which hopefully will happen before too long.

  21. @Nathan Explosion I know you probably have a lot on your plate but is there any ETA on when it might be 4.5 compatible? Thanks so much!
  22. @Nathan Explosion ahh great. I was just hoping you hadn't abandoned it as I just purchased it not knowing I couldn't use it. Thanks for letting me know!
  23. @Nathan Explosion just curious if you plan to update this app and if so when might it work for 4.5? Thank you!
