Invision Community 4.1.13

Released 07/05/2016

Key Changes

This is a maintenance release to fix reported issues and add refinement to existing features. This release also contains a security improvement for older versions of PHP.

In a recent change to their API, Google now requires an API Key to access their Maps API. After upgrading to 4.1.13, follow our Google Maps guide to restore this integration. This is especially recommended if you are using Commerce which uses the API for address input autocompletion.

In addition to bug fixes and performance improvements, this release also includes following enhancements

  • New per-group setting to highlight posts made by certain groups. 2 theme settings control the color and border, which are editable in the easy theme editor.
  • New setting to make providing a billing address optional for purchases in Commerce.
  • Personal conversation management improvements:
    • Can now filter personal conversations to just read/unread.
    • Can now move multiple personal conversations into a different folder at once.
    • Can search by recipient/sender name.
  • Notifications about Calendar events now include the event date.
  • New setting to control which images sizes should have a watermark applied in Gallery.
  • New setting to control which IP pool to use for SparkPost if you have purchased dedicated IP addresses.
  • Better handling of upgrades if files have been modified.
  • The sidebar widget for showing Downloads files can now show just free or paid files.
  • When searching templates or CSS files in the AdminCP template editor, it will search for templates or CSS files with a name matching the term provided, in addition to searching the content of them.
  • When viewing a log in the AdminCP, it will now show you on which page the log occurred and by which member.
  • When the search index is being rebuilt, a message is now shown on the search results page to indicate why results may not be complete.
  • The "details" modal for applications and plugins now has a tab which shows the hooks associated with that application or plugin.
  • The placeholders that display on date/time inputs (e.g. "HH:MM") can now be translated.
  • Rebuilding the search index, and rebuilding posts after a 3.x upgrade now processes newest posts first for a more user-friendly experience after upgrading.
  • When a file is deleted, a log is created and a new setting controls how to keep these logs for.

The following Pages features are also included:

  • HTML pages are now editable via Designer's mode.
  • Ability to rename, or delete a group of Database templates
  • Ability to ensure the Page's title remains in all database generated links (categories, records, forms, etc)
  • Reciprocal linking when using relational fields
  • Date and time fields, and Yes/No fields are now filterable.
  • Filterable custom fields now available when creating a record feed block
  • Ability to make some custom fields unique, so that only one record per database can have the same value.
  • Ability to delete a folder in the media manager
  • Ability to use $record->field_key_name_here programatically to get and set values, instead of relying on $record->field_11 which may change when you export and import databases.

Additional Information

Information for 3rd party designers

The new feature to highlight posts made by members in a particular post adds to the article.ipsComment element a .ipsComment_highlighted class and a data-memberGroup attribute with the group ID (so a site could do different colors for different groups, though the default implementation does not do this). On the default theme, the new CSS is:

.ipsComment_highlighted:not(.ipsBox_transparent):not(.ipsModerated):not(.ipsComment_selected) .ipsAreaBackground_reset {
	background-color: {theme="post_highlight"};
.ipsComment_highlighted:not(.ipsBox_transparent):not(.ipsModerated):not(.ipsComment_selected) {
	background-color: {theme="post_highlight"};
	border:1px solid {theme="post_highlight_border"};
