Invision Community 4.3 Release

Invision Community 4.3 will be released soon and contains numerous new features, updates, and upgrades. Most of the changes will be transparent to the end users (all of us), but a couple of them will improve community engagement and our RPG writing experience.

 

The two that will affect us the most are:

  • Setting so when someone is typing in an editor, other members will see a "Member X is typing..." status in the editor view.
    • This means that when we are editing a Joint Scene (post) to add answers to tags, we will be able to see if anyone else is editing at the same time. This will help us avoid accidentally overwriting someone else or even our own work.
  • Wordpress OAuth login method built in.
    • We use Wordpress to host our wiki as it has large document-friendly features, it is easy to organize, and supports easy upload and management of various media. This enhancement means we can sync logins and members to our wiki site so that everyone can add articles with relative ease. I will post more on this as I work out integrating our Wordpress powered wiki with this site.

New Feature Added: @ Group Mentions

 

We have added a new feature to our site! It is now possible to mention Groups (like in Discord where you can mention specific roles like @ members.

 

If you are setting up an open tagging thread (meaning anyone can join in) or need to get admins' attention on an issue in the Help Me forum, you can send notifications to the specific group.

 

To send a Group Mention...

  1. Go to the Group Mentions dropdown at the bottom of the editor.
  2. Select the group to notify.

Use this feature sparingly!

This feature sends out notifications to every member of a specific group. Therefore, in the case of an Open Tagging thread, you might want to select Players so that a single notice goes to each individual Player instead of to all of their characters!

 

@Administrators @Players
