  1. Invision Community’s new Live Community features offer an immersive, real-time experience for members. Clients on select standard plans now have access to live components that drastically change how their users engage within the forum section of their community. These live features are included in the new Smart Community section in the Admin Control Panel. When enabled, Live Community allows a community to track and display hot spots where members are most enthralled. Admin Control Panel -> System -> Smart Community -> Features -> Live Community Our Live Community components include: Who’s viewing an area live Who’s typing a response live Who’s Viewing Our new Who's Viewing feature shows a list of members who are viewing any area within the forums application. Sound familiar? We previously created a "Recently Browsing" block that shows what members are viewing a topic, however that block was a snapshot over a small block of time. The new Who's Viewing feature shows a list of members who are viewing a topic (and when they leave) in the present moment. Who’s Typing We also implemented a live Who’s Typing feature. If you're quick, you’ll see a member typing a reply in real-time when formulating your own reply at the form located near the bottom of a content item. These live community features can enhance your community by inspiring members to stay engaged within the community for longer, as well as feel connected to the other registered members. Whether you’re patiently waiting for a comment to come through because the reply form indicates a member/multiple members are typing, or gauging who’s viewing what in real-time, Invision Community’s new live features will elevate your community’s experience in the here and now. No time like the present; that's why it's a gift! The Live Community features are available in our new version, 4.7.1. Wyświetl pełny artykuł
  2. When you share your Commerce product pages on social media sites like Facebook, the website’s default sharer image will currently be used, but this is not very appealing and will likely result in a low click-through rate. This plugin will use the title image uploaded for a Commerce product and set it as as Open Graph image (“og:image”), so social media sites (Facebook, Twitter and more) can use it as thumbnail image to represent the link. The process is fully automatic. There are no settings and no image needs to be picked manually. What’s needed: Commerce application Notes: The plugin should work on all Invision Community installations using the stock theme. The functionality on custom themes cannot be guaranteed, when the Commerce templates differ from the stock templates. This plugin only adds the attachment image to the source code, so Facebook and other social media services can pick it up. There is no guarantee, that the image will be used instantly and that later changes to the forum images will be used by social media services. Facebook caches the images and loads them asynchronously. So when you share an URL for the first time, the image might not show instantly. If you want to test what Facebook is picking up, go to https://developers.facebook.com/tools/debug/sharing/ If you don’t see an image for your topic URL or it is an outdated one, click “Scrape again” until the correct image is loaded.

  4. Community managers and moderators have a simple but powerful new tool at their disposal: scheduling a topic's future publishing date. Previously, if a community manager wanted to draft a topic for a future release, they would have to craft the content elsewhere. It wasn’t the best experience. After listening to client feedback, we implemented a path for those with moderator privileges to create topics now, but have them go live in the future. Set this new permissions setting in the Admin Control Panel -> Moderators -> Content -> Can set a future publishing date? Notice the Publish date and time fields at the bottom: Here are a few examples of when this would be useful: Welcoming new members A community manager can compose a topic welcoming members from that week, but set it to go live the next week. It’s a powerful, engaging and visible way to acknowledge new sign-ups. Pair this with our new Alerts System. Anniversaries Big day coming up? Create content around it now, but set the topic's publish date on the actual day. Content calendar If you are in charge of creating community content, budget a chunk of time towards creating engaging topics. Set their future publish dates apart so there’s space for members to engage accordingly. It also allows your team to visually see the content and weigh in with changes (or hoorays!) before members see it. Related: Announcements Scheduling an announcement inside a topic, in tandem with our Announcements workflow functionality located in the Moderator Control Panel, allows community moderators to create space for feedback from loyalists. Promo campaign As a community manager, time is a commodity. Setting up a promotional campaign for a future product release sets you up for success. When planning intricate marketing projects, organization and editing are paramount. Setting a future release date creates space to ensure the messaging is clear and effective. This feature is available in 4.7.1 Beta 1 (out now). View our release notes. Thoughts? Let us know what you think in the comments (preferably now ). Wyświetl pełny artykuł
  5. See how long, on average, members ascend from one Rank to the next. Screen Recording 2022-07-20 at 14.58.14.mov We are excited to have added this new chart to our existing statistics that shows Rank Progression. This addition, available for all plans, is included in an upcoming release of our latest version 4.7. You can find it in your Admin Control Panel -> Stats -> Users -> Rank Progression. Ranks display a members’ perceived value to the community. The higher a members’ Rank, the greater their influence. Members with higher ranks earned those through their engagement and participation in the community. Actions like commenting, reacting and should your community be utilizing the Achievement system, through those Rules that award points. The more points, the higher the rank. Learn all about our Achievement System and Points in this previously shared Blog. Why is our new Rank Time Progression chart important? Understanding how long it takes members to move from rank to rank helps you strategize a user journey. You want meaningful contributors to feel rewarded for their engagement and participation in your community and receive an increase in their Rank. This chart provides a better understanding of how long it takes members to change Ranks. You will now be asking yourself insightful questions like: Am I happy with that timeline? Are my members happy too? Are any ranks being achieved too quickly or not quick enough? Are the ranks that I want to be “exclusive” and reserved for my star members, appropriately adjusted and take long enough to achieve? Ranks, Rules and all things Achievements can be adjusted and changed. Ask yourself these questions and make changes to better support and reward engagement from those valuable members. Related: Help Guide on how to set up Ranks in your community Let’s take a look at this chart again. Here, the Rank Progression average shows a curve, meaning the time, on average, it takes a member to jump from rank to rank increases. If a member reaches Grand Master faster than you intended, you’re now armed with information to adjust the Ranks. Ultimately, the shape of the line on the chart depends on your goals. Flat line = no time between ranks Rising straight line = similar amount of time between ranks Rising curved line = increasing amount of time between ranks This new addition tracks Ranks for all registered members from day one. Want input setting new Rank Progression goals? Please post in our community forum or leave us a comment. While you’re at it, feel free to leave a comment and let us know what you think; we're looking forward to hearing from you! Wyświetl pełny artykuł

  7. See what members are currently most engaged with in real time in your community by using our new Trending Content feature included in our latest release, 4.7.0. Our new Trending Content feature, available on our Business & Corporate/Enterprise plans, automatically rounds up a list of engaging topics that are most active in the present moment within your community and proudly displays them for other members to see and contribute to. Trending Content is one of the best ways to stay on top of popular and current topics, as well as engage with other members in the here and now. It’s also a powerful method to inform search engines that your community is an authority in its niche because your members are constantly fueling the community fire. How does the real time Trending Content feature work? Our platform applies a value to different forms of engagement. This informs the Trending Content feature as to what it should display without delay. This criteria is weighted and includes: Replies: most valuable ️️️ Topics that receive replies are the clearest sign a piece of content is trending. Reactions: valuable ️ Your members are engaging with other members’ topics and replies. That’s great in helping to decide what is trending, but ultimately we want members to comment. Views: somewhat valuable ️ Visibility is important and plays a role in deciding whether a content item shows in the Trending Content section. The Trending Content may be visible in a block, or on your community's leaderboard. Trending Content block: Trending Content section on the leaderboard page: The Trending Content feature may be turned on or off by visiting your Admin Control Panel (ACP) -> System -> Smart Community -> Features -> Trending Content. Examples of useful Trending Content blocks in different types of communities: Enterprise communities If you’re in the corporate realm, displaying a list of trending content gives your influential clients and members an opportunity to see what’s shaping the ecosystem of your big-named brand. It also provides the company with an opportunity to monitor trends, then focus on more content like it to create another set of trending topics. Educational communities Display a list of trending content amongst your students. If there’s a particular question that captures the attention of your e-learning audience, chances are it’s engaging and thought-provoking. By including a Trending Content block in prominent areas of your community, students (and teachers) have an opportunity to weigh in and reach a solution together. Gaming communities Include a Trending Content block inside your gaming community to drum up interest in new releases, share insider information and rumors about your favorite games and consoles and gauge what your fellow gamer peers are engaged with. Support communities Should a critical support issue arise, your team will see what content items your clients are contributing to, assess, then solve. News communities Don’t be the last to know. When breaking news strikes, members tend to flood to the content item and share their two cents. Including a Trending Content block in a news community is the most efficient route to quickly keep your members in the loop regarding live news. Our new Trending Content feature is available in version 4.7.0. Thoughts? Drop us a line in the comments and let us know what you think. Should this blog post receive great engagement, you'll see it in our Trending Content feature located in our community forum. See you there! Wyświetl pełny artykuł
  8. Uniform Dark Uniform is a dark, modern theme focused around a background picker which applies a single background image throughout the entire forum, including category bars and forum icons. The theme is packed with customizable features which can be easily enabled or disabled from within the Admin Control Panel. Theme Features Theme Settings Easily enable, disable or modify theme features such as background images, logos, social media links and colors. This makes modifications and upgrades very simple since little code changes are required. Background picker If enabled, your members can choose their own background image or color from a predefined selection. Their choice is saved via cookies and automatically load each page visit. HTML logo with slogan Easily add/edit your text logo and slogan from within the theme settings. If required, the text can be replaced by an image instead. Guest message A customizable message can be shown to guests, prompting them to either register or login to your forum. Two designs, "billboard" and "alert" (shown) are available.

  9. In a digital world with no shortage of places to connect, a beautiful theme will help you stand out from the crowd. We previously touched on the importance of branded communities, and now we’re unveiling new functionality that will help make your theme more functional: easy access to header and footer tabs within our new simple theme editor. Invision Community already has a powerful and advanced theme editor allowing total control over every aspect of your community’s UI, however this power comes at the cost of ease of use. We often get asked if there’s an easier way to add a site wrapper, or header and footer with some tweaks to the CSS without learning the complexities of the theme editor. Now, we do! Invision Community 4.7.0 comes with a simple theme editing mode. Utilizing a clean interface, this editing mode allows you to quickly and easily add header and footer HTML, along with any CSS. When editing a theme, after clicking the big green button that says "Use Simple Theme Editing," you're taken to a simplified theme editor page where you can add in code for your header and footer, as well as custom CSS. Previously, this option was not available. Before, community leaders had to sift through a theme’s template structure to modify anything within the header and footer code by manually editing Core > Global > GlobalTemplate and work out where to put the HTML. Now, there are header, footer and CSS tabs for easy access. The same Header and Footer tabs are also viewable when editing a theme. TL;DR? We streamlined an important theme editing process. Our mission is to further simplify the more complex parts of the Admin Control Panel without losing the extensibility and customization Invision Community is famous for. The simple theme editor is a single step in that direction. The new, easy-to-use header / footer / CSS theme options are available to use in our new release, 4.7.0. Wyświetl pełny artykuł
  10. As IPS's implementation of forums and other features within clubs doesn't allow for nesting, I had this app developed by CodingJungle to visually mimic such behavior. This app will provide a drag-and-drop interface that allows you to create complex club menus. The underlined menu items are "Labels" and are not "clickable". Their purpose is to allow the categorization of content. You can also create "Pages" which are "clickable" that you can drag features underneath. Pages would be ideal if you want to provide information to the user about that particular category. You add all of the features you want to include in your menu via the "Add Club Feature" below. Once you have added the features you want you click on "Manage Menus" where you can drag and drop to your heart's content. Upon clicking on the "Manage Menus" option the following screen pops up: If you want to create a nested menu, click on the "Add Parent Group" button. Click on the "Pencil" Icon to rename the Parent Group to whatever you want. You can click on the "+" sign to create a "Label". Rename the "Label" to whatever category you want, repeat as necessary. You can drag "Features" into the new Parent Group in whatever order you desire. You can place them within a "Label" or "Page" or by themselves. For orphaned "Parent Groups" you can go ahead and click on the "X" to delete them. If you don't, they won't show up in the menu if there are no "Labels" or "Features" within. You can also reorder "Parent Groups", so they show up in the menu in any order you desire. It takes a moment for the program to write changes in the background so it's best not to rush your mouse movements. This app will afford you an opportunity to try out a multitude of different use cases you may have never thought clubs could be used for. If you have a less than robust server and lots of people using clubs, please limit the complexity of your menus. I would recommend a measured approach. Add a few new features to a club and observe how it impacts your server. If it seems to handle things well add a few more new features to a club and observe how it impacts your server. You should readily determine when you're about to reach your server's limit, when that happens back off from adding any new features to your club menus. I would recommend "Quality" over "Quantity" when it comes to utilizing this app to its fullest. Przejdź do sklepu

  12. This application lets admins add a VIP Status to specific members promoting them to a different group. It can be either a permanent promotion or a temporary one. It can be used to give higher privileges to helpful members of the community (for example hiding ads for them). Features: Setting to specify which group VIP members are moved to. Setting to specify which group expired VIP members are moved to. It also supports "Original Group" as an option. Option to send a PM notification to members who are promoted to VIP and when their VIP status expires. Every VIP status change is logged in the member history in ACP. A new icon is added in the user bar near the notification icon while the user is in the VIP group. Expired VIP Members are automatically moved out of the VIP group by a task.

  14. Take control of your community messenger inbox. Topics, replies and reviews are an incredible way to engage with members in a community, but sometimes a conversation needs to be had in private. Invision Community's built-in messenger is a powerful system that allows members to privately message another member, or a group of members, directly within your community. However, allowing your members unrestricted access to reach out could clog up your community inbox (and mind!). There are times when you may want a little space from receiving new messages. For example, when you are… Going on vacation Working on a project that requires your complete attention Needing a moment to catch up Currently, your only option is to disable the entire messaging system. That is effective, but it means you cannot engage with existing messages, send replies or message other members. We’ve developed a solution! Invision Community 4.7.0 allows for more refined control over your messenger by allowing you to disable the inbox. The benefit of this is that you can continue existing conversations and start conversations with others while preventing anyone from messaging you (except staff members) either directly or via the Alerts System. The "Disable my messenger" link has been replaced with "Disable my inbox". The warning pop-up makes it clear what this action will do. Of course, administrators can still completely disable the messenger for themselves and other members of the community, which prevents them from accessing the messenger entirely. The new disable your inbox feature, included in Invision Community 4.7.0, will be available to all in the near future. Thoughts on the disabling the inbox feature? Let us know what you think in the comments! Related: Wyświetl pełny artykuł
