    Price hike, no more ticket support - enough signals from Invision

    The announcement of a price hike combined with no more ticket support is reason enough for me to reconsider my strategy. I rarely need ticket support, I usually solve the problems myself. But having no ticket support for a software is simply a no-go for me. And having a newsletter that tries to...

    Jumping back in... so what Software to use? XF or IPB?

    Full disclosure, I used to run a forum powered by Invision and loved it. My last version was 2.0.2 I think. So it's been quite a while. But it's time to jump back into the game and I'm trying to decide what software to use. XenForo wasn't a player back then when I was into it. I like the...

    No access to previous versions of IPB

    Absurd that if you do not renew your license, you are not able to access even the previous versions of the software that you had access to.

    Invision power services is pulling a fast one on their customers

    Pay more get less. Thats IPS new business model since version 4.5. Some of you probably already know but i have not been using IPS for quite some time. Well i decided to start a new website in 2021 and found that IPS is the best software for the job. Xenforo is also very nice but for this...

    Why there is so much animosity about IPB on TAZ?

    This is something that I have noticed for a long time btw. I was wondering as to why is that? It looks like Taz is playing favorites here by placing xf over all the other forums. Should someone not prise xf here, they get muted and even banned in some cases. Whereas if people go over board by...

    After 10 years, I'm done with IPS

    The direction in which Invision has decided to take with their software has left me with no other option but to seek other venues unfortunately. I will most likely be switching over to Xenforo because of the availability of support and access to 3rd party developers. With the recent changes at...

    Invision 4.5 (new!): sign in with Apple

    Sign in with Apple is built on similar technologies as other login buttons such as those already available in Invision Community from Facebook, Google and Microsoft. The difference is Apple’s unique focus on privacy. On certain community types users can be reluctant to sign up when they fear...

    Invision Community 4.5 (NEW!): Topic view summary and more!

    A topic is more than a collection of posts; it's a living entity that ebbs and flows over time. Evergreen topics can see month-long gaps between posts and longer topics spanning numerous pages can end up hard to navigate through to find useful content. With this in mind, we've added numerous...

    4.5: Mark as "Solved"

    We've had a formal "QA" mode in Invision Community for a while now, but we were often asked for a simpler way to mark a post as the solution without allowing up/down voting of replies and changing how the forum listing looked. Happily, this has now been added to Invision Community 4.5...
