    Badges are important in the sense that they allow a quick visual to know a little about the credibility of the writer of the message if I may say so.
    Maybe a simple registration date and a number of messages on a profile would be enough for some like you.
    If not more widely, they also allow to integrate a gamification system in order to encourage participation especially towards new registrants and to make the profile system more informative and evolving.
    This is the very first version and like very first version it is not the best but it will surely be improved over time just like IPS 1.0 was.
    Whatever thing we're dealing with, whether it's writing an article or setting up a web page, I have learned over time that the best I think is not to render them. heavy things with lots of written or visual repetition by seeing the user as a person who does not understand anything at all and that must be repeated as many times as possible or make things that are immediately obvious with lots of colors or big visuals with the goal that he can not miss anything that we want to convey to him. Rather, it may make things difficult to assimilate and to scare away because it is too tiring.

    Badges are a good thing but are not part of the main message for regular (and majority) users when opening a page.
    Therefore, it should be less intrusive. Maximum a single icon can be on the main page of the message and with a maximum of discretion.
    Because the goal is not to convey the main message of the page but to bring information to a new reader on a question which he asks himself "who am I in front?". He will have to search and he will find even if the information is discreet.
    Regular users know that such is the moderator, credibility in his posts etc.
    The gamification system is also becoming less useful for regular writers I think.
    unlike instagram and other social networks, i don't think the old editors here are looking to have as many likes and badges as possible but rather to have their post read and accepted.

    it would be nice if it is possible to propose different groups according to the main group.
    If you are a member here are the public groups that you can join.
    If you are moderator, here are the public groups that you can integrate.
    ....

    also that certain groups are only available by select box. it's this one or this one

    Are you asking ... 
    1. Cancel their account registration? 
    2. Cancel their paid subscription where they pay money? 
     
    If #1, you need a third party tool like Account Deletion by @Makoto or the user contacts the admin, and you manually delete.  
    If #2, yes users can cancel their paid subscriptions from their Purchases.

    [data-pageid="1"] #elContextualTools { padding: 0px 15px 0px 15px; margin: 65px -15px 0px -15px; transition: box-shadow 0.3s linear; } The page ID section makes some alignment changes.  Just play around with the CSS to achieve the look you want.  Much of it is alignment issues that really annoy the hell out of me; my designer OCD kicking in lol.
    Let me know how you get on and enjoy 🙂

    Forum name is under the image as opposed to being over the image and the last entry is shown below.  It just makes things look neater and tidier, at least it does for me 🙂

    annadaa got a reaction from kmk in IPB as a LMS   
    in fact i don't know if you know what you are talking about and know what an LMS is?
    you say IPS is starting from scratch. A sufficient LMS is based on the presentation of courses in video or pdf format and the validation of these by validation quizzes.
    where is the head start?
    it is rather IPS which disposes it by the management of user group and member ...
    the only head start they have over IPS is in smartphone use because IPS has not been seriously concerned with this point for years.

    annadaa got a reaction from OptimusBain in IPB as a LMS   
    I'm sorry but despite what you say I'm still pretty confident.
    A promising LMS application was released in the summer of 2018 and it's almost 3 years since it is still in beta without any real evolution at the present time.
    The logic of things is that one should stop believing in it and be realistic in seeing it since its development is clearly neglected.
    But it seems that very soon a version with the integrated Quiz should finally be released.
    Frankly, an LMS is really nothing special, complicated that cannot be done on IPS.
    It is just a matter of being able to present schools, subject categories, lessons in video or downloadable PDF format, and make the school or lesson categories payable.
    Thing that IPS can do very well as they have Commerce.
    Regarding the management of groups and members, IPS is its strong point, word press is far behind.
    Lots of things also on word press can sadly only be done from the admin panel.
    And what is done from the admin panel here, IPS is much better and more user-friendly
    The big problem is knowing it and understanding what is blocking at IPS, why today in 2021, they are still not a progressive web app.
    And I do not understand that we can write a blog post just to announce the possibility of being able to post anonymously.
    Normally a monthly article should contain at least 5 new items of this type as this is not an extraordinary addition.
    The future of IPS, and it's what seems to be happening, I only see it in the core of its cms, chat, group management, member, user profile, private messaging and interactivity (hopefully) between member: points, badge, trophy, ranking.
    By having integrated Zapier, IPS accepted that we may need an external alternative specialized on a typical product because it is their specialty.
    IPS has its members, its groups but offers the possibility of using Zendesk for customer service because Zendesk specializes in this and IPS is not its foundation to focus on a powerful database for customer management.
    If all you need is simple customer service, IPS offers you something for that integrated and not very expensive in comparison, but if you want something more powerful, here is zendesk that integrates easily.
    The same can be done with someone who wants to write a sales page using the word press environment, with a registration on thrive cart, and then registration and management of the member in the IPS environment.
    There is a different vision of the web and its future.
    Regarding this point, LMS, I do not think that the strong point is in the simple possibility of being able to make the environment also available on a mobile application because that is the real concern, difference, for me that I see here between learn dash and an LMS on IPS.
     I do not see anything extraordinary, to present lessons by categories in video format or in download. IPS can do this very well.
    Regarding the interactivity between member or group, I am convinced that IPS is stronger but also in the user-friendliness concerning the administration as well as the admin panel for the webmaster.
    I do not expect much from the design to display video or pdf, except for simplicity so no comparison to make here.
    If I had to compare two LMSs my question is which LMS achieves high engagement and result rate at the lowest cost.
    This is because the dropout rate in distance education is extremely high.
    Design and everything else is only secondary ... especially what's best and simplest today is what's uncluttered and heavy with a lot of unnecessary stuff.
    I expect more real progress on a rate of engagement and success for the students and this at a lower cost, because it requires careful monitoring of each member.
    It is not possible to make everything automated, at some point you need to be in front of a real human, a real follow-up, and to have encouragement from a real human and no more from a score given by a quiz.
    I think that gamification through achievement badges, points, scoreboards, and collective mutual aid in clubs can relieve the costs quite well in order to make it easier to bring real things into remote teaching.
    Without it, the teaching and study environment will be boring and dropouts extremely high.

    Clubhouse 101 is the new “forum” sensation based on audio.
    For some time I have been asking for a better gallery APP to better support for video and to allow stories.
    Maybe we should also consider audio posts, that could be translated to text by cloud services from google or amazon and vice-versa.

    Regarding this point, LMS, I do not think that the strong point is in the simple possibility of being able to make the environment also available on a mobile application because that is the real concern, difference, for me that I see here between learn dash and an LMS on IPS.
     I do not see anything extraordinary, to present lessons by categories in video format or in download. IPS can do this very well.
    Regarding the interactivity between member or group, I am convinced that IPS is stronger but also in the user-friendliness concerning the administration as well as the admin panel for the webmaster.
    I do not expect much from the design to display video or pdf, except for simplicity so no comparison to make here.
    If I had to compare two LMSs my question is which LMS achieves high engagement and result rate at the lowest cost.
    This is because the dropout rate in distance education is extremely high.
    Design and everything else is only secondary ... especially what's best and simplest today is what's uncluttered and heavy with a lot of unnecessary stuff.
    I expect more real progress on a rate of engagement and success for the students and this at a lower cost, because it requires careful monitoring of each member.
    It is not possible to make everything automated, at some point you need to be in front of a real human, a real follow-up, and to have encouragement from a real human and no more from a score given by a quiz.
    I think that gamification through achievement badges, points, scoreboards, and collective mutual aid in clubs can relieve the costs quite well in order to make it easier to bring real things into remote teaching.
    Without it, the teaching and study environment will be boring and dropouts extremely high.

    I'm sorry but despite what you say I'm still pretty confident.
    A promising LMS application was released in the summer of 2018 and it's almost 3 years since it is still in beta without any real evolution at the present time.
    The logic of things is that one should stop believing in it and be realistic in seeing it since its development is clearly neglected.
    But it seems that very soon a version with the integrated Quiz should finally be released.
    Frankly, an LMS is really nothing special, complicated that cannot be done on IPS.
    It is just a matter of being able to present schools, subject categories, lessons in video or downloadable PDF format, and make the school or lesson categories payable.
    Thing that IPS can do very well as they have Commerce.
    Regarding the management of groups and members, IPS is its strong point, word press is far behind.
    Lots of things also on word press can sadly only be done from the admin panel.
    And what is done from the admin panel here, IPS is much better and more user-friendly
    The big problem is knowing it and understanding what is blocking at IPS, why today in 2021, they are still not a progressive web app.
    And I do not understand that we can write a blog post just to announce the possibility of being able to post anonymously.
    Normally a monthly article should contain at least 5 new items of this type as this is not an extraordinary addition.
    The future of IPS, and it's what seems to be happening, I only see it in the core of its cms, chat, group management, member, user profile, private messaging and interactivity (hopefully) between member: points, badge, trophy, ranking.
    By having integrated Zapier, IPS accepted that we may need an external alternative specialized on a typical product because it is their specialty.
    IPS has its members, its groups but offers the possibility of using Zendesk for customer service because Zendesk specializes in this and IPS is not its foundation to focus on a powerful database for customer management.
    If all you need is simple customer service, IPS offers you something for that integrated and not very expensive in comparison, but if you want something more powerful, here is zendesk that integrates easily.
    The same can be done with someone who wants to write a sales page using the word press environment, with a registration on thrive cart, and then registration and management of the member in the IPS environment.

    I am using an LMS for invison power which is still in beta today.
    Word press is great for writing a sales page with optimiz press or whatever, and why not also for a nice shopping cart page with thrive cart using Zapier.
    Surely Thrive cart can be used with IPS once Zapier is available here.
    Following my research for learn dash on word press or another LMS like Kajabi, I found that it was possible to do better with IPS and that it would meet better expectations.
    This is because IPS has a core that is really centered on members, groups, communities, social, ...
    IPS is also cheaper.
    to know that learn dash needs a lot of external plugins which can then cause problems during updates.
    all that I saw if not on these two cms, it is possible to have them here, to see much more and in better.
    except that it is true that they have a mobile application unlike there.
    what we really need is to come up with a site with high engagement and course completion rates and not the best design and full of options that concretely bring nothing to the end results.
    And I must say that on learn dash or even kajabi learning seems to me quite monotonous, not very lively, ...
    So the solution I found is to use a real individual follow-up through the use of coaching accompanied by community learning for those who wish in small classes of 5 students maximum using clubs as mentioned by @Jordan Invision.
    What will help create the right groups for clubs, and know who to interact with, are the validation badges. it allows you to easily know the level of each and the profiles are alike
    understand better then that my question here is how the student will be able to access and see in front of him on a single page, his coaching, his current courses, his calendar, his points etc.
    I find it too complicated and tiring to navigate between lots of menus
    I want to use the kanban method available here "stratagem"

    this is surely difficult for many of us to understand what is blocking the implementation of an option that seems so minimal. without being a developer, it seems even surprising that it takes so long or that it could be a break in the functioning of the site if it is implemented in the near future. I read in the blog that we would no longer wait for major releases to add options. Isn't it better to take a break from your very long-term work, to focus on the small additions. it often happens to read "We've had this on our internal roadmap" but what is blocking it so that it lasts so long? I'm trying to tell myself that surely there must be major work in the codes of thousands of lines of files that we do not see, concerning the correction of bugs, improvement ... but here we are wondering whether it is about small additions or the progress of the mobil application. I'm sure if you hire a developer who is dedicated to adding all of these small changes, customers will get them done faster. or maybe you have to remove the coffee machine (joke)

    Some thoughts:
    I've been watching the IPS forums for many, many years and I've seen an average of 2 year turntime from product suggestion to product implementation.  For most suggestions in the IPS forums, they ignore.   IPS gets feedback from many sources, including enterprise clients and managed clients -- you know, people who pay more money than you.   When you have zero expectations, you're always surprised!

    Hey @annadaa, Jordan here. Very interesting! I like the idea of personalized micro clubs mainly because it's a concept I haven't thought about with Invision, and I like where your head is at. 
    Wondering... have you considered doing micro groups instead? Each private Club has ~5 members. If there's coaching involved, perhaps it might be a good idea to allow your clients to form relationships with one another while they're on their journey. Would there be a disadvantage to that? 
    Curious, what kind of coaching is it?
  20. Thanks
    annadaa reacted to Joel R in Clubs (or something similar) for 1 member only   
    This is already doable in Clubs, especially with their improvements:
    You can create paid clubswhere fans need to pay $$ to access You can add a club calendar for coaching You can download Club Enhancements plugin to add custom widgets to sidebar You can make club forum node to be question and answer You can add custom pages  What else do you need?  Pretty sure everything you want is 100% available today either in vanilla IPS or in the Club Enhancement.

    If we want to make available a paid subscription formula, we must bring a real plus.
    I think, why not use something like clubs.
    After joining, this will open a club or something else, with a "private member area" page that might look like a club page but better.
    The goal is to provide quality support and private follow-up to each client, and offer them a beautiful personalized page specific to each one.
    - schedule for coaching
    - widgets for each information specific to this member
    - private forum for questions and answers with the team
    This may be possible today by creating a specific group for each member, etc., but this goes beyond the use by which we have been creating clubs and user groups.
    Who says groups means several members.

    annadaa got a reaction from SUBRTX in UI experience : greatly reduce navigation on the site   
    Thank you for your contribution
    I find that Word press does not reach the level of IPS at all in user profiles, user management, quality of admin panel, ease of use etc. The IPS top is much further ahead
    Word press exceeds IPS in the number of applications, the value of certain (less risk of abandonment because they are the largest companies behind) but does not exceed I find in the quality and the precise contribution to specific users, I speak in any case of my needs. I find them quite poor in functionality, and not very attractive.
     
    a lot of things can only be done from a not very attractive admin panel

     
    On word press, I believe that we are also faced with concerns when the apps are not updated, interference between them ...
    I thought about going to word press but the quality and the greatest maneuver to manage specific users and groups, it is especially here that I will find it.
    (if you want to write articles and only that without the need for user monitoring, then yes word press will surely be better)
    But in choosing IPS, the basis is that you choose to bring things to specific users or groups.
    What interests me about IPS is its strength in user management with its groups, and ease of use.
    Even though, as I mentioned, some things need to be improved, it is possible to do some very good things. I still believe in it, I don't find them behind on everything.
    I must say that I am a little behind in my knowledge of some new web applications like (slack, reddit etc) but I believe that these are two totally different uses and therefore incomparable with IPS

    For a while, the sites could be full of colors, lots of menus, lots of different sections. This posed no problem for Internet users.
    This is over today. Internet users no longer have the time and want direct access to what they need.
    If a page is too heavy, too many widgets, too bulky, and you get lost between the categories, that scares people away and doesn't make you want to stay and read
    IPS is FORUMS, ECOMMERCE, CMS, FILE SHARING, CALENDARS, GALLERIES, BLOGS and CLUBS
    Do you think that today Internet users (with the distractions of social networks and others) find the mental strength to navigate between all this?
    Will you tell me, that in part there are notifications, no need to navigate to know the news, but that makes the site heavy and scares people.
    It is a subject which deserves I think a long work of reflection to know how one will easily offer a quality article (which is sought after today) with at hand what goes with it as a downloadable file uploder on downloads, available and associated directly in the article, the same for the discussion, etc.
    Another example here:
     

    You have to click on additional information, then on support topic to finally find yourself in the discussion.
    Is it not easier to make the discussion topic directly visible in the tab.
    we can no longer afford to want to force the member to go to the forum to access the discussion of the file.
    I hope that one day, it will be easily possible to associate an article, with a file on downloads, a discussion on a forum, a physical article sold on ecommerce without having to complicate the task with lots of widgets etc.
    as said that surely requires a work of thought to find the best thing to do, but nothing that to see under the title for example of the clickable links of all that is associated would be good:
    1 discussion - 1 image - 1 product ....
    There to do something like that, we play a long time with the tags, or a widget to go to the article, another to the discussion etc.
    When you are the creator of the site everything is easy, simple to understand, to navigate, but take the advice of potential newcomers
    I'm almost certain that there will be a lot more reading, downloading, contributing by avoiding navigating the site if things are linked together
