  1. I do love your quizzes app and have had a really solid experience with it. It's definitely worth the money! Do you ever plan to add weighted answers / more advanced scoring though? That's the one thing I've really been wishing it has.
    This app allows you to specify which user group(s) [in which Forum(s)] can create an "Event" tied to a particular forum and allow a certain number of people to sign up (with just a single click) for that "Event". People who click to sign up receive an SMS text message through integration with the Twilio SMS-gateway service on the back-end. (Note: these events are not related to the IPS Calendar/event system) A user's phone number must be defined with a pre-existing custom profile field as a telephone number that does need to be pre-populated (i.e. it won't ask you for a number if your profile doesn't have one yet). You have to add the widget to your forum layout. The event can include something like a URL, password, or discount code for use elsewhere. The functionality is very basic at this point, but it definitely works as I describe it. To be clear, it does not do anything more advanced like let you send later (bulk or individual) SMS reminders, nor see who all who signed up for an event (though you can see phone numbers on the Twilio management console side of things). Lastly, it does not use the Twilio API to verify international number formats are in the required E.164 format, but for US/Canadian numbers it does work without difficulty [e.g. the profile field must have "15551234567" not "(555) 123-4567" as neither Twilio nor this App reformats or strips down the phone number]. It also does not support more advance features like accepting input (replies) from users sent an SMS. You can get a Twilio account phone number for $1/month, pre-paid ($20/minimum buy-in), and Twilio DOES let you control whether you want to automatically top-up or not, so that is really, really nice. It only costs a fraction of a penny for each message sent. Twilio also let's you search for words as phone numbers, so that's nice too. Although the functionality is very basic currently (sort of a "usable proof of concept"), it's a great inexpensive option for some minimal one-way SMS event-notification integration into IPS, without needing to write your own custom code (which is the norm for Twilio), plus I'm pretty impressed with Twilio itself as the back-end service provider. Hopefully, if there's enough interest the author will decide to enhance it further down the road! But, even as it is right now it's a great addition to IPS. As the screenshot shows, you get a text message in the form of: "Hello <IPS Username>, You've sign on on event in <Topic Name> at <Date/Time>. Address: . Event code: <the data in the field you define goes here> <IPS Username of event creator> Tested w/ IPS 4.4.4 running version 3.0.1 of this Events System app.
  2. Hey again, so I did have a chance to test it and I have to apologize as I think the problem was on my end and I think you're all good! I think there may have been some formatting in my Notes App that I was using to copy and paste to/from. The bottom line is that your plugin has no problem embedding pasted links, whether they are plain text or rich text, so long as there is no additional formatting within the URL (like the URL is bolded or some such). This is the same functionality level as the built-in embedding, such as Youtube links. Thanks for jumping on this, even though it turns out it was all my bad!
  3. Here's the one I uploaded as a test: https://streamable.com/s/ruo04/rojzrk https://streamable.com/ruo04 I tried using both the main URL and the "embedded" link URL it provided and both had the same results.
  4. I'm on a Mac as well, using Safari and Mojave. So if I do a normal "rich" paste of a URL using CMD+V it doesn't get converted, but if I do a plain-text paste using CMD+OPT+SHIFT+V it does get converted properly. The built-in processor for Youtube URLs in IPS handles this fine (works either way) but your processor I could only get when force-pasting plain text. So for example, take a streamable URL and paste it into the Notes App and press enter. It gets underlined and converted to rich text. Copy and paste that into IPS and it won't work with your processor (for me anyway!) but does if it's a Youtube URL. And although I mention this as a specific test you can try, even copying plain text (like from a Safari URL address bar) still seems to get pasted and presumably IPS is automatically converting into a Rich Text URL causing your processor to fail based on my testing. This testing method (copying, pasting, and recopying from Notes App before) is meant to make sure the text in the URL is in fact rich text. I hope this explanation helps maybe? Anyway, I will test this out again and also try some other browsers. I can also try this on older versions of macOS as well to see if that makes a difference and let you know.
  5. Thanks for making this! Although there is one small thing: it only works if you paste as plain text and not as rich text which is the default, so for the majority of users who don't know better this won't work for them. In contrast, the built-in embedded support in IPS (like for youtube URL's) works fine with rich text pasting. I think this would be a fantastic little upgrade to your plugin.
  6. Minor Feature suggestions: For study-mode quizzes I think it would be nice if it had the option to have the explanation auto-appear instead of having to click the explanation button. It would be nice if one could use rich text formatting for the quiz question itself as well (not just in the explanation).
    This should really be built into IPS. Still working great on 4.4.4. I was working on another IPS site much newer than mine and totally forgot the functionality of this application was NOT part of plain IPS. I was really annoyed thinking they (Invision) removed it, but nope I just forgot that my normal 4.3 site has your application! Not sure why people are experiencing any problem with it, but here are some tips: It works fine for me with external links. Are you using the full http or https url? Make sure you're using the right FA icon names for FA ver. 4.7 (not 5.0...unless you are the rare person who's gotten that for IPS). For example: fa-globe, fa-home, fa-photo, etc. It does require the "fa-" prefix. See: https://fontawesome.com/v4.7.0/cheatsheet/
    Zarąbiście! Thanks for making this! I love it. Working great on 4.4.4.
  7. I love this plugin widget! Running 1.0.2 on 4.3.x it worked great, and it still worked great after upgrading this week to 4.4.4. However, I updated to 1.0.3 and it stops working properly: instead of just showing the new members of the past 24-hours it lists everyone who has logged in the past 24 hours instead. I uninstall and tried again from scratch on version 1.0.3 and it does the same thing. 🤨 So I uninstalled and re-installed the previous 1.0.2 version and it works fine once again.
    Definitely recommended. Makes things much cleaner.
    Some very few themes handle the background around the profile name text well, but the vast majority look clunky and awful... thus this plugin really helps with those!
    Love it! Was using it on 4.3 no problem, and just upgraded to 4.4.4 and it still works great.
  8. I hope you update this! Loved it last winter on 4.3, but 4.4 appears to have broken it.
  9. From what I have seen this is Theme-specific. Some themes give it to you, some themes don't, and some themes even optionally give it to you but let you turn it off.

    However there is a great plugin called "Add Items to Mobile Navbar" that I have used to add up to two custom icons to the mobile navigation bar.
