wow, great features!! I hope to give it a try one day.

Does this mod require anything else to be installed? I noticed CH was mentioned. Is that required?

Thanks for working on this.

@ *=Matt=*
No problem... :)

Let me know what you think. Also if you have any ideas on things to add or make it better let me know.

Thanks

No it isn't required. There are two versions, one for CH and one for PhpBB. So if you should ever install CH you will still be able to use it.

Will you have a demo setup so we can give it a try and test it's features? If not, maybe show some screenshots in your first post. Thanks!

I will post either screen shots or the demo board url a bit later today.

Since I need to setup a demo account by the rules here and cannot ask people to register to try it, I need to decide how to approach this. The email could be sent anywhere and abused, so with no accounting for who sent it from a demo account I am not sure this is a good idea.

I will give some thought to this and post one way or the other in a bit. :?

I wasn't thinking when I asked for the demo. It could get abused, so screenshots with key areas/features would be better.

Just some ideas:

-active/pending referral list

-multi level referral (ie: my referral registers=10pts, my referral's referral=5pts, and each one after=1pt )

-only points upon referral's activation

-turn on/off per user/group (especially those who spam/abuse the system)

-trackback to original referrer

  • -active/pending referral list: hmm.. well they either join or they don't so it would seem to be alot of code for tracking and would probably have to track by emails sent. I will think on this.
  • -multi level referral (ie: my referral registers=10pts, my referral's referral=5pts, and each one after=1pt ): This deserves some thought. Kind of a pyramid thing. Have to give thought on how to implement that on registration.
  • -only points upon referral's activation This is allready the case. No longer does credit or rewards get added until user actually registers. One of the first fixes handled.
  • -trackback to original referrer Not sure what you mean here. Please explain more. A page to show all referrals from say user A referred user B and user B referred user C, D, E etc? This can be acheived pretty much allready by viewing the user profile and you can see all members that user referred. Maybe just another entry in the view log to show the users referral list? Or admin log allready tells how many referrals each user has.
I will add some screen shots. See what you think and if you like, install and maybe give me a better idea on last suggestion.

It is in the install doc. You set the amount you want for referrals before you run sql. Also choose points or gold before install. This is the reason for 3 different install docs.

All other settings are cash mod settings and I did a fairly extensive bit in the author notes on how to set it up.

At this point you would need to do it in mysql. Change the value in phpbb_config rp_gold to whatever amount you would like the users to get for referrals.

I will try to highlight this part of the notes in some fashion so it is easier to understand.

@ bbus3r and anyone else, I added some screenshots to the first post.

I assume you are speaking of the ACP Settings, if so...
I think that is an excellant suggestion!

I will look into it. Never really thought about changing it once it had been sat.

I didn't think you where a noob, just thought you missed my author notes. I updated the docs to try to bring closer attention to this issue, since it happened to you it could happen to anyone. :)

thanks for the suggestion

Not sure if you tried activity mod, but they have an option to choose the cash/point system on the administration side.

Maybe you can include cash/point option on the administration side:

Points system: O Yes O No

Cash system: O Yes O No
If yes: reward field ________ (ie: user_points)

I just noticed you have screenshots ...

posting points - are these referral points? if so, does this add to the total user_points of the member?

total referrals - does the description auto wrap around to the next line? if not, maybe invite friend should be on another line.

ie: invite friend: use this link to receive credit for all your referrals

just a thought ... nothing more.
