  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. Discussion forum management

    Enable better management of discussion boards by moving threads to different topics, etc.

  5. 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…

  6. 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…

  7. Back Button to Forum Summary

    My site really needs a back button to the Forum Summary after a commenter posts. It's a critical flaw. I've never seen a message board that doesn't have this function. I've already gotten complaints about it from my membership calling the software bulky and non-intuitive.

  8. Number of topics in the forum list

    It would be nice to be able to configure the number of topics that are listed per page. The current setting of 10 is VERY low and our members are used to seeing quite a few more than that.

  9. See the post you're replying to

    I'd like to see what I'm replying to without having to include the whole thing in my reply (as with quote). Also, the nomenclature is not what a user expects... most of my users didn't bother to even try "quote" before asking how to get that type of functionality.

  10. 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…

  11. 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.

  12. 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,…

  13. 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!

  14. Add "Anonymous" Commenting Option to Profile

    Currently, anyone commenting on a Forum has their name displayed with their comment. The only way to comment anonymously is to remove all outside access to the profile.

    On the premise that people might be more willing to participate in a Forum if they could easily create anonymity, adding a profile option to permit anonymous commenting would be a helpful feature.

    An alternative approach might be to direct the commenter through a process allowing removal of their name, substituting of a "nickname" or simply "anonymous" to identify the commenter.

  17. Custom sorting options for forum subjects

    This is similar to Paul's. It'd be nice for admins to be able to sort forum subjects in different orders. We can only "pin" one item to the top of a forum. If we can sort them by subject alphabetically, or manually number them, that'd be dandy. Last to first is

  18. Add a Report Post link in Discussion Forum Posts [7490]

    I see a Wish List about forum moderation. But I would like to see a "Report Post" link in every post that would allow any reader to report the post to the site owner. Nothing fancy. Just click the link and a message comes up that says "This post has been reported to the site administrator. Thanks for your concern". The admins would then get an email or maybe it would show up in a section in the dashboard that would let the admins investigate any posts flagged by users and then they can decide whether to edit, delete or…

  20. Include initial description along with Forum Title

    It seems that every other forum I have used always lists the initial description with the title of the Forum Topic at the top. Replies to the topic are listed below. Your own WA support forums work that way!!

    The current forum gadget treats the initial description the same as one of the replies, so that it may appear at the top or bottom . depending on your settings. This is a problem and should be fixed.
