Invision Community

Released 06/29/2015

Key Changes

In addition to many bug fixes and performance improvements, some specifics include:

New Features & Settings

  • Legacy PayPal gateway to allow for older PayPal Subscriptions to still be recognised.
  • Attachment Type Restrictions: You can now choose from three options for file attachments in any post content: No files, Images only (this will actually check to make sure an uploaded file is a valid image) or All files (this is default) - If you choose "All files" you have the option to provide a list of allowed file extensions.
  • Merge Concurrent Posts: If a user makes a post or comment and then makes another post or comment on the same item before any other user, the posts will be merged. There is a setting to disable or set the time limit for this to happen. There is a clear, visual indication when a merge happens to avoid confusion to the end user.
  • Moderators can click and hold on topic and other item titles to quickly edit.
  • New setting to optionally set products in Commerce to have a grace period to remain active for a period of time after expiration.
  • New setting to specify domains to exclude from having rel='nofollow' added to links.
  • The "+ Create" menu at the top of the page now has an option to create an announcement.
  • New button to post a status within the status updates widget
  • You can now embed Pages database entries by pasting their link.
  • New widgets for blog entry, gallery images and downloads files feeds.
  • Widgets displaying content feeds can now be given a custom title.

Other Improvements

  • The subject lines for emails sent about new content have been changed slightly so email clients can group them better.
  • Some widgets providing duplicate functionality have been merged. For example, "Latest Topics" has been merged into "Topic Feed".
  • Announcements now show on every page by default (but can still be removed).
  • When upgrading, if you have a large database you are presented with an option to run queries manually. You can now opt to run them anyway.

Disabling Applications

  • New ability to disable but not uninstall an app.
  • IPS apps that are not up to date will be disabled on upgrade to prevent things breaking.
  • The Support system in the AdminCP will now disable non-IPS apps in addition to all plugins as part of its diagnostics. It will also show you a list if what it is disabling to help you find problems.

Notes for translators

  • The public-facing navigation tabs now have language strings separate from the application title (this means translators will need to re-translate the application tabs upon upgrade).


Update was released to fix:

  • Making a post might not work on older versions of PHP
  • Editing permissions for a module may not work
  • Issues with widgets after upgrading
  • Some clients seeing apps turning offline on upgrade was released to fix:

  • Fixes an issue where comments on Blog entries may not work
  • Fixes an issue where custom drop down fields in Pages databases may not work
