  1. 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…

  2. Add moderation of new forum posts

    Current behavior:
    All posts and replies are published immediately (subject to the user having appropriate access rights on the particular forum)

    Desired behavior:
    Ability to moderate posts/comments

    Implementation ideas:

    • Administrator can specify whether forum should be moderated or not (maybe by each membership level?)
    • Administrator can assign moderators
    • All new posts/replies according to settings go into moderation list
    • Moderators receive notices (probably option: each message/daily digest)
    • Moderators have online list of messages to be moderated and can approve/reject/edit them
    • once approved, message is displayed.

  3. have a list of users that are subscribed to a forum.

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

  4. FORUM - include full posting text in email digest

    Because the daily forum summary only includes topics and links, users are not willing to switch from Yahoo groups. We'd rather not maintain both systems, obviously. People want to read the post on their mobile device email instead of having to logon to see them.

    We need to be able to specify if our daily digest will include just the topics and links, or contain the full text of the new postings. Would be nice if users could switch their individual setting from the site default if they don't want full text, for example.

    Our forum activity isn't very high,…

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. Customizable username for forums

    Does anyone know how to change how members show up when they post a comment in the Forum?

    Because we have members real names blocked, all members that post show up as "Anonymous Member" in posts.

    When members apply for membership, they select a "Profile" Member name.

    Is there a way for this discreet "Member / Profile" name to show up in posts instead of having to unblock their real names or only show "Anonymous".

    Any help greatly appreciated.

  8. 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.

  9. 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…

  10. 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!

  11. Order forum summary other than alphabetical

    When using multiple forums, the forums are listed in the summary in alphabetical order. I would like my discussion forum users to see the forums in an order that I choose, not alphabetical. I would also like to leave the forum names as is, instead of re-naming with a prefix to get the correct order.

    For example, I would like my users to see the "Rules" forum at the top of the forum summary and my "Everything Else" forum to appear at the bottom. Currently they appear within my forum summary where "R" and "E" fall in the alphabet.

    Thanks!

  12. Default setting for forum email frequency

    It would be useful to have a global setting for the default forum email frequency -- immediate or weekly. If this is not feasible I think that the default should be weekly. Many members object to
    receiving too-frequent emails.

  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.

  15. Allow deleting all topics older than a certain date

    We have some forums where there are 50 or more pages of topics - some of which go back 4 or 5 years. I know that topics can be deleted manually, but only one by one, and the way it works now, if you remove the oldest topic, it takes you back to the top of the forum.

    I would like to have a way of removing all topics older than a specific date. This would allow pruning of the forum backlogs in an orderly - and much more efficient - fashion.

    Frank responded

    Thanks for posting Rick, we’ll need more comments/supporters before we can proceed, but it’s a good suggestion.

  16. Renaming buttons on the forum for replies and new threads

    I have noticed that every time my forum users start a brand-new topic, they do so by adding it as a comment to a previous topic. I'm sure this is because the New Comment button is the only one they see as they are reading through the forum (unless they go back a page, which they don't know to do).

    I would really like have a New Topic button on that page, too. I'd also like the "New Comment" button changed to Post Response which I think makes more sense to users.

    Thanks! -Bradley

    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.

  20. 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.
