    Considering it's free -- while its a premium quality theme, with superb support and being kept up-to-date with all IPS 4.x releases -- it's simply second to none. And IMHO it really should be the default front-end theme in every IPS installation.
  1. have to ask, cause if the aim is to have quality content and not have much of interaction? What made you chose IPB/IPS in favor of other solutions? ( a sincere question) Cause while I do love everything about IPS; I find myself still on the fence around my own personal projects. For example: wouldn't it be easier to then run a site with WP, Medium, SteemIt, Kartra or many other solutions out there? Or were you referring to SEO vs. SM traffic? Mind if I PM you? Interested to learn how you interact with a professional audience on a forum type of solution.
  2. @opentype that's okay I need to get back to site development anyway. As having the features at our disposal is one-thing; realisation is a differerent matter altogether. Consider what I shared the summary of about all articles in: https://invisioncommunity.com/news/community-management/ *edit* or the other news tabs and specific articles in them like this one (the 'diet' case) with a walkthrough on the setup.:
  3. Ah, glad you responded (as this ties in directly with the Patreon API discussion) ? What I 'reject' (read: consider oldskool) is the organic SEO traffic strategies, and doing social media promotion to gain +1 / likes towards promoting FORUM content.Cause when the end-goal of running a forum is to monetize it through ads? Then it's far easier to engage directly with an audience on SM without having a site indeed. So the usual applies; it all depends on goals / marketing / audience. Will throw in a more practical example towards attraction marketing: let's say I know an admin who runs a f
  4. That's legacy thinking. Without being offensive. Its like deploying SEO strategies of two years ago in the present. Some of it still works, but 'the market' has moved into newer avenues. Moreover SM+ SEO is not about promotion, but engagement (on SM) to give a potential audience a warm fuzzy feeling towards loyalty (hence why all the ecommerce brands provide Q&A and aftersales on SM). Focussing attention now to just FB? Is a way. Not the best way (and do recommend to use it for obvious reasons). However, considering FB is extremely behind on 'money over IP' compared to the Chinese wechat f
  5. Hency why the release of 4.3 was a wet dream come true. No other forum or CMS solution has the features, bells and whistles around the topic of gamification, fanbase creation and viral growth like invision community does. And we tested LOADS of them before migrating from IPB3 (forum-only) to IPS 4.2 (and now 4.3.x): https://invisioncommunity.com/solutions/fan-communities Extend those with marketplace plugins around accumulating points. And... I haven't had much sleep the past few months. ? IPS is not a forum solution ... it can be used as such, but it is sooooooooo much more. IP.board est
  6. I love to have that together with your plugin, except quickly browsing around the site I only see mention of "Send 15,000 emails/month and get 30 days of support with our free developer account." And no other free packages. So how did you accomplish that?
  7. sendgrid, sparkpost, amazon ses, mailgun, mandrill (part of mailchimp), etc. are all examples of "smtp relay services"; its to bypass the limitation set out by hosting providers for daily sending limits. A limit put in place to prevent spam. From an admin perspective using a smtp relay server (with or without API) also increases the deliverability to an users inbox instead of going straight to junk email. *edit* ah your question was about smtp vs. rest api? sorry
  8. you have to slide it out first. At around 26seconds in the video you see a tiny grey arrow at mid left of the screen. Press that to slide the widgetbar out.
  9. Found a display bug in the desktop sticky menu:
  10. yes, we have it running. Excellent! Just what I was looking for! But ... .. was hoping this would be a configuration option through ACP. Is it possible to create a language / flags dropdown for us (or is that part of premium version of plugin)? As all these parameters are readily available: https://developer.paypal.com/docs/classic/api/locale_codes/#localize-the-buyers-checkout-experience or atleast match the lc value to the IPS default language value?
  11. Thanks you both, totally forgot about that OAuth2 support is built-in these days. Nothing worthwhile is ever easy, but definitely seems doable now. And didnt know that either about Steam. Glad you developed a plugin for it. ;)
  12. guess I missed something again. You mean that tool that doesn't empty the cache whereas this free plugin does? https://invisioncommunity.com/files/file/8076-clear-cache/ and thus never looked into the tool again. So what else can it do? *clicking around my ACP backoffice*. Oh ... a great deal of things I will use next time ? oopz. On a serious note, has the clear cache thing been fixed too? *edit* that plugin solved most of our custom theme issues last year. *edit2* And yes invision tier 2 has a nuisance of repeatingly pointing to a 3rd party theme developer first, even when we tested it
  13. can you include a couple of screenshots how it would look on the frontend? and with prior comments in mind, does it work on 4.3.x ?
  14. Currently doing some research at how we can entice/make it easier for other nice markets to create an account or login with IPS4 powered sites. And after running into a couple of authentication plugins for Steam in the invision marketplace provided by @Aiwa and @Lavo , I'm wondering if there's something similar available for Behance (a platform used a lot by Adobe and multimedia creators )? The behance API docs are available, but have not yet found an IPS4.3 plugin for it. Is that something on invision's staff radar, or can be created easily by someone?
