  1. It really doesn't matter what they see really. Invision really doesn't have any feature that's a good landing page for members. You either have all the forums, which can be very overwhelming for a new member to see as they're not always sure where to jump in. It's like standing next to a spinning merry go round. They want to ride but are scared to just jump on. I tried creating a newsfeed for them to land on based on status updates, but this too wasn't working because you can't comment, like or interact directly on the feed. We ended up connecting our site to WordPress so that we could create a dashboard that shows them all the stuff they have access to. It's been working great. So as you develop the new version, please think about the new user experience and ways we can help new people have a better experience. We do love InvisionCommunity though. It's the best one out here. 🖖👽
  2. They could but that's not very efficient. I'm looking for them to be able to add individual events to their Google calendar just by clicking a link.
  3. Is there a way to allow people to add events to their google calendars? I am shocked this isn't a native feature from IPS. We have many community members who use Google Calendar, and Android phones. Is this possible with your app?
    Just added this to my site today, and it adds so much to the look and feel of the notifications! GREAT work! I like that I CAN customize them, but I don't want to. They look great right out of the box! 🙂
  4. We really work hard to nurture our community. Out of all the choices we had to build our community on, IPS made the most sense, as it has some amazing features. I just wish from the core, the developers would think more about DISCOVERY and ease of finding information, as well as navigation. The whole 3-4 clicks to get anywhere, and then have to scroll all over hoping to find a link BACK is crazy. We can only do the awesome things you said in your article WITH the right tools to keep community members happy. I do not at all regret my decision to move our community here, but I do want to really work with the devs here to focus in on what is MOST important. The way that I always approach UI is ask myself, what are the 20 things people do MOST on the site. Knowing those 20 things, I make those the easiest to find and do. And then I build backward from there. Now that those things are easy, how can I stack without losing that flow. It seems like development on here is more about the functionality of the plugins. Which IS important, don't get me wrong, but you can have all the amazing features in the world...but if navigation and discovery are hard...then those things don't matter. Anyway, sorry for the rant on your post. It is just that I can see you think the same way we do. I want to know that we made the right choice to move our AWESOME community here. 🙂
  5. I am not sure why the gallery likes etc are laid out totally different than they are on forums etc. Doesn't look like they need to be at all. It just makes for a poor user experience, as it does not look good. Would be great if you could keep those elements consistent site wide so that people aren't confused when they get there. Is there a reason that they are set up the way they are?
  6. Downloaded this today, and for some reason, I keep getting an error saying my BOT doesn't have the correct permissions, when it has every permission possible. I can see the chatroom that people are able to join in the dropdown, but when connecting get the error... https://gl.d.pr/Mxyntd That's the error I am getting. Any ideas?
  7. Our users haven't had any issues at all, and none of them are gamers. They are all small business owners. Even older people (60+) are using it and liking it. 🙂
  8. Wow! Says this is easy to set up. Not finding that to be the case. Is there a guide anywhere? This seems very confusing, as it is not clear how to add the bot to my Discord server...
  9. @Makoto if we already have a discord server, and we embed this to work with specific rooms, would the permissions of that room not be picked up in the embed to not allow "guests" to chat, and only allow it via roles set to the person that is logged in? I plan to use another app called Brilliant Discord to handle the roles/member levels...and your app to embed the chat on our pages. Should this not work? Thanks in advance!
  10. I am in need of the same thing. Can't use it otherwise. 😞
  11. Discord is in no way JUST for gamers. We are not gamers and use it, and I know MANY content creators who use Discord for their communities as well. It has everything that you are looking for if you use apps to connect it to your community to bring members in based on their member levels on IPS. You should relook at Discord. 🙂
  12. I think I may have figured it out. A video would be nice 🙂 I think these are going to look great! THANKS for the quick response.
  13. I already have SuperGrid, and would like to get this new one as well, but I just cannot seem to figure out how these work. I cannot find good documentation on how to set them up anywhere. Can you provide anything? I would really like to set my site up to look this good.
    So far so good. There is a link to this seller in the footer on the mobile version, and I cannot figure out how to get rid of it. I will change to 5 stars once that is fixed, but so far, it does exactly as it should, and looks great. Well worth the price tag!
