  1. list of forum subscriptions

    I would love to see a list of all those that have subscribed to the many forums on our site. Currently, I can see if a given person has subscribe within their email settings, but that is cumbersome to search through 100 people to find out if 15 of them have subscribed to one of the forums.

  2. Hierarchical Forum/Sub-Forum Structure

    Some of our board members have requested the ability to have sub-forums. I am trying to create a workaround using Forum Summary widgets and sub-pages, but this is not as easy to navigate (or search) as a forum with a hierarchical structure. This structure seems to be a common feature of fora I have seen elsewhere. How about it?

  4. Allow administrator to set forum subscription option for a whole class of members but allow those members to opt out if they wish.

    Right now the default option for forums requires all member categories to subscribe to the forums they are interested in. We believe that the administrator should have the ability to set the default of a member category to subscribe and each member in that category would then have the option of unsubscribing from the forum or topic if they wish.

  5. Add ability to add custom columns (Fields) to forum topics

    We have numerous forums that would benefit from having a custom icon or status in it's own column. Example is an "Items for sale" forum where we use a topic for each item and then the discussion becomes the bids and questions from the members. We would like to be able to include a "status" column in the list of topics to indicate where the item is in the inventory life cycle.

  6. Forum responses not useful or organized

    The Forum is really hard for people to use. You can't quote an original question in a response, and your response is not threaded with the original question. So a person must read through all responses to get to the one they want.
    Needs better organization.
    As it is, the Forum is not very useful.

  7. Allow changing the order in which sticky topics are displayed.

    Allow changing the order in which sticky topics are displayed. We have quite a few in some fora, and the order they were entered in is not generally the reverse of the order in which we would like them displayed.

  8. Connect Forums to Tapatalk

    The forums cannot be easily accessed from mobile devices, and should either be able to connect to Tapatalk, or another mobile app that allows for mobile access. Or include forum access in the WildApricot Member App

  9. Idea to enhance forum functionality

    Look into using discourse.org functionality to completely replace the forums feature. They already have options to embed a discourse instance into an existing web site for this purpose. Adopting discourse.org tech would resolve at least 25 feature requests I have reviewed today!

  10. Open Forums

    There should be a option in forums to be an open forum (where you do not have to subscribe)

  13. Allow limiting of forum administration to specific admin role

    Currently it appears that any level of administrator can perform administrative activities in a forum: a member or events admin, for example, can move messages between forums, delete messages, post pictures in a forum message, etc.

    I feel that forum administration should only be allowed by someone with the "website" admin role.

    Ideally, there needs to be a new "forum administrator" role so that trusted members can act as moderators without gaining other unrelated administrative privileges.

  14. See how many views a forum post has received

    I've had a number of our members ask if it is possible to see how many times a forum post has been viewed. All our forums are 'Member' only and this feature would be very useful to review and judge member engagement. I hope there are others who would find this a useful feature if it was deemed acceptable to be introduced.

  15. close a forum post to further comments

    I would like to see the ability to close a forum post to further comments without needing to delete it. The only options I presently see are edit, merge, move or delete.

  16. Easier tools to archive/manage old discussion forum threads

    Help! We're getting overrun with old discussion forum posts that never age off the forum, so admins have to go in and manually delete the oldest. This is inefficient (an hour each week for me). A better way would be to: a)have a 'best-before' option (i.e. 3 months) where anything older is automatically deleted, or b) offer an admin tool that lists all posts, allows sorting by multiple fields, and allows delete or archive of single or multiple posts.

    I would like a list of users that are subscribed to a forum. If not the list, maybe a count.

  18. Enable "No Access" Forum Setting for Public

    Hopefully this is a small change, but a useful one.

    I would like to create a forum for private discussions among Board of Director members.

    So as not to rub it in members' noses that there's a forum they are excluded from, I don't want it listed in the Forums List page.

    So I restrict it to members of the Directors group.

    Good: Members can't see it in the Forums list page.

    Bad: Public visitors can see it. So can Members if they log out.

    This thread http://forums.wildapricot.com/forums/308929-general-discussion-and-questions/suggestions/8825143-how-do-i-restrict-forum-access-to-members-only explains the reasoning behind disabling Public No Access. That's fine if you…

  19. Customize forum notification emails

    I'm going to have a hard time getting people to subscribe to our neighborhood association forum vs the "next door" forum that has been building over the last year here. I'm attaching visuals for reference.

    The wild apricot email summary is visually uninviting and instead of asking people to engage by hitting "reply" it offers them a chance to "unsubscribe" first.

    It doesn't include a picture so it's not as personal as it could be and I don't see an option for people to sign up to receive every message in a forum as opposed to a daily summary should…

  20. Managing email subscriptions to forum updates

    Current behavior:
    Members can subscribe to receive updates about forum posts by email - by going to the forum and clicking on a subscription link in that forum or topic
    However, there is no way for administrator to view their subscription status or change it.
    If administrator wants to subscribe them manually, the only way is to log in under member's profile (so he has to know the password) and subscribe to forums as if he is this member - very crude workaround.
    Admin can only remove subscriptions from member records.

    Desired behavior:
    - Allow administrator to subscribe member(s) to…
