    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...
