  1. 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!

  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?

  3. 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:

  4. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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

  11. 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!

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  20. 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…
