  1. Please, go ahead with that plan. I think that'd be interesting. If you do one thing, take your time with this and every app you make. As a developer, there's nothing more rewarding then when you pay attention to detail in a dedicated, and if necessary, or needs be, a slow and purposeful manner. that way, you remember what you already have made changes to, and can still make new features happen as they come up without losing sight of what you've already built as this can run away on you which is where bugs happen. I'll tell you this. You're an excellent web author and I'm excited to see wh
  2. Yeah I'm with you there. All I want is the bar of Arrowchat. That way all the widget based stuff is optional, and you can just minimize it responsively when people want to actually look at the site footer. It'd be really cool to have two way bots. Where you can make a real time chat room into an updated thread or list of threads for private and public conversations sent to the site. either in blogs, forums or which ever else. This would make it similar to telegram where you can view things like files, links, messages sent to the room.
  3. Does this remove the ability to use optional widgets? And if the admin default room on all pages is private, or will only show to members, not guests for example, does this mean just the room won't be visible to people who can't view it, or will the entire site be unavailable because a portion of the page is only viewable to certain people?
  4. Presales questions 1. What exactly can you raffle off? Does this work similar to draws where people can put money in a jar and a certain percentage of it goes towards a final win? 2. Say you can collect money with this, is it received via account credit or some other method?
  5. Hello, I haven't purchased this app yet, so please know that I am keeping a close eye on developments because: 1. I'm unhappy with IPS store. I don't like how difficult it is to integrate payment methods through it. I bought points economy to fix this, but Kevin made it so that Rules app is required. It's blacklisted in the marketplace. The lite version doesn't really do it justice. I hate that where developers give a free version but they make you have to buy it off site. Anyways, there's no way to manage points with it. But from what I'm reading, IPS store has very minimal integrat
  6. You're welcome. You strike me as someone who enjoys a challenge and likes to beat it. Glad to help!
  7. Thank you for tagging me in the topic. I should've come here earlier, but I'm new to IPS so am not quite sure how it all works yet as far as the community goes. But I really love what I see here. I love how observational and attentive you are. Your consideration of my ideas here means I'm already hooked but also appreciate your talent and ability to engage in people, as you treat us like we matter as not just consumers, but admins and community relations managers with people, members, and valued users of the forums. Here's some more features to consider if you think of it. 1. Im
    What's not to love about Chat by TheJackal84? The basic difference between this chat app and the Chatbox by The Only Me, is that: 1. TJ84 Chat has private message controls. 2. TJ84 chat app has bots. 3. TOM chat has different modes for displaying chat only. 4. TOM chat app is cheaper. *copyright branding removal* If you care about white label, you'll need to purchase this service by TheJackal84 if you install the chat. It's non obtrusive, but I had to set the chat app so that guests and Google Bots couldn't view the chat because of this feature. When you click the
  8. I already have. After the run around from a few different people, it turned out to be a bug on their end.
  9. Is there any way to archive that forum? I wanted to view one specific sales prequestion that I had about content imports and unique display names. But it keeps saying I have no permission to access the Google Search result that is associated with it. So this must've happened recently.
  10. I can't get any buttons on the CKEditor to have custom permissions.
  11. So you want a group comment wall and have the group be the title. That's easy to do. The app I'm referring to here, refers to custom fields everywhere.
  12. My only problem with notifications, is that they aren't automatically popping up in a lite box overlay window when they are received and I'm online to get one. Also, it is a lot of work to have to go through several screens just to turn notifications on for most account features, as IPS likes to leave them off by default. I get that it's a preference, but it should be a preference to not get them, as opposed to never knowing they are there to look at. Having to manually click follow reply to topic for example, won't even guarantee I get an email to look at it when I have a new reply waiti
  13. Well let me say this. Google doesn't know to look for your site, unless it is pinged and then regularly referenced using keywords, backlinks and pinged again. Then it keeps track of how many people actually visit by keeping tabs using a bot tracker. Why do you think Word Press does so well? And IPBoard V3? Pings. Yes, they still work. And that's how news sites gets their stories published via RSS pings and site maps. Having said that, to control what topics do crawl pings, is very important. But it's not as important, as Gooogle knowing that you have something available to ping.
  14. I really dislike 2factor authentication. The idea was never really completed very well. 1. I really think a way to verify browser bookmarks via cookies is a safer, and more device cross platform convenient way to keep session tables stored and regularly updated. That way the admin could set maximum sessions to remember, and ones to drop support for via notifications to a browser regardless of whether the person visits the site or not. 2. I have an Iphone, but even if I didn't, if I reformatted my Ihpone, I'm locked out of my account. Rather than have admins reset my data, I want to b
  15. How do I say this without sounding critical? Discord is for gamers. And shout boxes are for these social sites and making things feel like Facebook. A good chat app lets you coordinate live on site meetings on sunday nights where you listen to a live stream and hang out with other members. A good chat app will get you communicating beyond a text editor, and a few emails back and fourth to understand each other. Chat has always been a staple for active, busy forums. It's a place to meet others who want to be met with. Whereas the forum is a place for people to learn informat
  16. "It's true. IPS is bringing back the chat feature. Complete with-" Hang on a second, I'm sorry to disappoint... "With the switch from IPBoard to IPS community suite, we've decided to skip chat entirely and shut down the service for existing IPBoard V3 account holders." Thanks but, no thanks. Lets bring chat back! Five reasons why: 1. Guess who you're paying for integration if IPS has no chat? 1.1. Comet chat. Bad company, terrible support, third party cloud platforms costing more than the highest IPS plan for starters. Considering that company originated from
  17. You know I hadn't realized view counts weren't a global feature until you pointed this out?
  18. I seen an app that lets you have custom fields anywhere and everywhere you want them. So group topic templates could have them as well. So you could for example, disable club forums, but enable something new like club postables.
  19. To be honest, I am thinking the exact opposite.
  20. Can you not add file upload custom field to the articles template area?
  21. Invision Community remains under active development, support and extensive interest in (year_name) currently 2019. IPS4 is my starting point to build a lasting community of engagement and dedication. Where features end, communities on Invision begins.
  22. Dear Invision community, Since IPS4 was released, the creation of a CSV import tool hasn't gone unnoticed or unwelcome. It has been developed to be far more extensible than any other software I've seen. Including the other popular behemoth VBulletin/Xenforo. There's just one problem. Even after disabling login handlers under standard/display names, so members just login with an email address, the importer runs into an error. Intentional or otherwise, it's the worst kind of problem one can face, when importing member profiles. "Fields were imported, some rows were skipp
  23. Well, a custom fields area would give you that.
