A Massive Pile of Micro-Changes, Improvements, and Customizations for Invision Community 4.5+, Everything Including as They Say...

Entirely re-written for Invision Community 4.5 as an application. Inserts most CSS after any Invision application's CSS but before your custom css directory files. That means 3rd-party plugins and your own custom.css file will always take precedence.

  • You can allow any topic creator to edit their first post in topics within the forums of your choice.
  • Set both post count and topic count as stats displaying in Forum indexes.
  • Scrunches down review stars.
  • Collapses (with optional max-size) embedded images in posts AND displays them in-line. No more massive stacked image posts!
  • Font Awesome 5 support!
  • Speed up animation speeds for pop-ups and other elements. 
  • Customize the default error page that displays with a background image, custom text, more!
  • Full Messenger box warning for users.
  • Forums Topic and Post embeds customizable! You can make them look really nice...
  • A hell of a lot more... 

Here's a slightly longer but probably still partial list:

See the screenshots for a better look at most of what is on offer (but not all). Screenshots of Kitchen Sink Settings in the ACP may appear different than stock installations as Spacious ACP allows for custom ACP fonts and formatting and my ACP has, obviously, been customized 😃

 

Can I ask for something to be changed or included?
Yes, absolutely! That's kind of the whole point of this. This is a LIVING application. You can expect things to come and go over time. There are some basic rules though. If I think it is too involved, or I think that once I start it that it would be better off as it's own plugin I'll pass. Just ask in the support topic and we'll go from there. The primary focus here is TINY small things that would normally get lost in the shuffle. Tweaks, flips, nudges. That sort of thing. I decide in the end and you may or may not like my decisions...

What if IPS changes something and...
If they add something into the suite that I fixed/added here then it will probably be removed from Kitchen Sink. No need to duplicate functionality. If something in this plugin breaks due to a change in the IPS Suite I'll of course try to fix it if it is fixable, or I might remove it until it can be fixed; I expect things to change over the years - you should too.

Seems to be forums heavy...
Yep - that is the flagship application for the suite so... There's still plenty of good stuff for the Core and other apps too!

Anything on the ACP side?
No but...

Get that! (if it ever gets 4.5 approval)

This <feature> isn't working on my site!
If you have custom.css or a 3rd-party plugin that conflicts, or your custom theme has moved elements around, and so on, there is not a lot I can do. I can give you some help in the support topic but the further you (or theme authors) move away from the default IPS structure the harder it will be for hooks and CSS calls to work. Most of Kitchen Sink should work for everyone. I do not support modified themes but I'll lend a hand as I can time permitting. This plugin has been tested on a fresh 4.5.3 installation of Invision Community with no other plugins loaded and no custom.css. 

 

To get most of what Kitchen Sink offers you would have to hope for devs to provide a surreal amount of free plugins - to get all of it, many of the more involved Kitchen Sink features would set you back at least $10 a pop (the new 4.5 Marketplace minimum). I've wrapped it all up in a single application for a convenient low price! 

 

Thanks Everyone!
