  1. 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.

  2. Enable tagging members in discussion forums

    Enable tagging members on discussion forum posts so they are notified that they've been tagged and so other members can quickly view that members' profile.

  3. Search inside a selected forum

    It would be really great if there was an option to search within just one specific forum. REALLY REALLY helpful. It's great that after a search is put in one can choose to only show the results of forums, but being able to search within one selected forum would be even better.

  4. Make forum accessible via email

    We have been using the forum gadget for our discussion forum. We suggest 3 sueful additions for this gadget:
    1. Receiving an email for each message that is posted, with the whole message contained in the email
    2. Being able to reply to an existing message by replying via email
    3. Being able to post a new message to the forum by sending it via email

    It would be great if this good be implemented at some stage. Thank you!

  6. Q&A forum, let anybody create a topic, but only a subset of members can reply

    Hi,

    We'd like to create a Q&A style forum, where any of our members can ask questions (ie, create topics), but only a subset of our members with expertise can answer the questions (ie, reply to topics). Is this a permission option that could be added to the forum feature?

  7. Export Forum Post Archive

    I would like to be able to download an archive of all forum posts. With text formatting would be ideal, but not sure if that is feasible.

  8. Don't arbitrarily reject content types in form post attachments.

    Attachments to forum posts are accepted or rejected on the basis of content type (various image and documents accepted; mp3, mp4, etc. rejected). The excuse given is about file size. A single JPEG image can easily be a larger file than many minutes of MP3 audio, yet up to 20 files of 20MB each are accepted of the approved content type.

    Content type is not a valid proxy for file size.

    As musicians, small audio clips are our lingua franca, and rejecting these from forum postings drastically devalues the forum as a tool.

  9. The pinned forum post should not be pinned in the forum summary gadget.

    We're just starting out, but the one forum that has a pinned post is showing that pinned post as the first entry on the forum summary gadget. It shouldn't be pinned there at all. If I limit that gadget to 5 entries and there are 5 pinned posts, that gadget will never update since it'll always be showing the pinned posts.

    At this point, I'll need to exclude the one forum using the pinned forum post. -OR- I'll need to unpin the post and add it as a notice above the forum gadget. Neither option is ideal.

    Most search engines allow you to put a phrase in quotes or use the AND (find items with both repair AND invoice. Our forums are getting pretty big and it is very time consuming to go thru all the matches without having the search results limited more effectively.

  11. Force acceptance of waiver at renewal

    We need members to accept our waiver every year.

    We. We’d a way to force this for renewals. We may have to switch away from wild apricot if we cannot did a way to get this to work with wild apricot.

    Competitor system can include waivers as part of the renewal process. When the members are renewing, a note can be provided reminding them to “Please update your waiver”. There will be a provided “box” that when checked off, the waiver is updated. If the check box is not checked off, the renewal process will stop.

  12. Vary the dates and times of WA Webinars

    I am very interested in your webinars and would like to attend them. However, they are always held on Tuesday's at 1 pm my time, when I have other committments. Have you thought about varying the time and/or the day of the week so that those with commitments on Tuesdays have an opportunity to attend, too. There is no way you can accommodate everyone's schedule, but varying the days would allow everyone to attend sometimes. The recordings are a big help.

  13. need immediate notification when a member posts in a discussion forum

    I recently created a discussion forum and subscribed to it hoping to see when others posted a comment. I now understand that the email notifying me that there has been a post is only generated once per day. I would have thought that it would be more immediate. It would be helpful if those who subscribe could be notified as soon as there is a posting in their forum or in a specific topic. Being notified late at night is counter-productive to having a real-time discussion. Yes, I know that I can periodically check the page for updates but an…

  14. Thread quoted replies to keep them together on forum lists

    Forum presentations that have quoted replies are clumsy and unsatisfying. If a reply is made to a comment using a quote, and it appears pages later, no easy way for a user to know there is an explanatory reply to be found later in subsequent pages. Quoted replies should be indented below the reply commented, or sorted to, or at least with a link on the original to see the replies. Right now, it is nearly useless to see the reply string to a comment on a topic.

  15. 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.

  16. Support for Voting on Forum Posts

    Similar ideas have been posted here before, see https://forums.wildapricot.com/forums/308932-wishlist/suggestions/34133521-thumbs-up-in-forum and https://forums.wildapricot.com/forums/308932-wishlist/suggestions/9904584-idea-management-voting-system-gadget. However, these presuppose the develpoment of new functionality, and the latter is evidently considered already addressed by the "Polls" feature. However, this is not the case. The polls require a fixed list of options, all of which are known in advance and determined by an administrator. What we need is exactly the voting functionality of this Wishlist forum, which is open-ended and encourages user participation. We already have two forum categories where this would be useful:

  17. 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?

  18. 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.
