## This mod is based on a mod that was done by omen but the site is no longer available
## So I have redone parts of the mod and updated it to actually work.
## Omen < omen@modpros.com > (Damien A.) http://mods.modpros.com
############################################################## 
## MOD History:
## v.9.1 Initial Release
##############################################################
Right now this mod will take care of subscriptions to your site. Subscription renewal is handled automaticly.

Any questions please ask as well as any feature resuests.

I have been working on this diligently and if there are no bug reports then this will be renamed 1.0 and released as a final.

the only reason this is not named final is in case i get a few feature requests. It is completely functional and working though.

Meh I guess I was wrong I thought others would be inerested. I see about 44 people have looked and no offers for help. I also get no responce on how to use the dev kit thats fine guys if nobody wants to help. I'll do it all myself. It may take longer to release though and on top of it all dont be suprised if it's not just a simple little free download.

If anybody else really is interested and are not just talking about wanting this then let me know otherwise I dont see the reason to waste my time on free support for something nobody wants.

You can see it in action here:

http://www.webmedic.net/groupcp.php

since it is group realted you will have to have a user account. Sorry no way arround that one.

and in the main forums I have forums setup that use group permissions to allow or disallow access to them. here
http://www.webmedic.net/index.php?c=8

the mod will automaticly do the subscriptions on a monthly/weekly/yearly basis and you dont have to do anything it is all automatic.

Setup a cheaper group and I will send money. But from what I can tell this is exactly what the doctor has ordered. Looks to be working fine, directs properly to PayPal site with all info in there. I wanted to test it so bad you almost made $45 off me... Haha.

i want this mod very much indeed :D Allthough im not sure what i can do to help because my cat knows more php than I do =/ I can just about hobble scripts together from bits of code and examples from elsewhere, but they rarely work as desired =/

So find me a job and ill do my best to do it ;)

Hi webmedic

I think this is a cool idea. I know that previously omen worked on a similar concept but he suddenly disappeared from phpbb.com and his site isn't working anymore.

I want to set up a subscription site, but rather than being directed at groups, I'd love to see a version of your mod that will grant you access to the whole phpbb board, the reason being that my board will be more directed at chatting, blogging, user profile searching, etc. etc. Also, I want a flat subscription structure (no platinum or premium levels, just one that will give access to all areas).

Maybe you have some ideas on this? Keep up the good work

Cheers

Fordfairlane :D

um well that is an easy one all you have to do is set your whole forum and everything in it to private then make a group and give that one group access to everything. Then you sue this mod to let users sign up. When their payment goes through they get access to the group. It will automatically take care of payment options, price plans and renewal notices. In your case if all you need is a single group then only create one group with one price plan.

In my case I'm using integramod and it is very easy to add static html pages also. In this case I will set up a page explaining the groups and what you would get and then direct it to the sign up page rather than the groupcp page which is not as friendly.

I have found though that I had a few users that tried to go through and for some reason only one of them actually went all the way through to paypal and after the transaction the fields were not properly entered into the database.

I'm very close though hopefully by the end of next week to figure out the rest of the problems.

Thanks for the responce. If you have any other questions for some reason this thread did not email me correctly please post here:

thanks I'll update things as fast as I can and try to get the demo to a state where I can have testers again.

Really looking forward to this mod, I'm suprised all other similar mods have been abandoned, as this seems very useful.

I have been doing more research on this and have setup a sandbox account account with paypal for testing it. Unfortunately I have a trip to go on and will be back in about a week and a half. At that time I'll get things back on track. Sorry for the delay. It will be much easier for testing with the fake paypal account though and so when i relase it it will be working already.

I dont think I'll need anymore testers as it will simply work once it's finished.
