[BETA] SMS Intregation

Post by christhatsme » Thu May 18, 2006 6:43 pm

MOD Title: SMS Intregation
MOD Description: Intregates SMS into your forum using the SMS provider ClickSMS (http://www.clicksms.co.uk).
MOD Version: 0.6.1

MOD Download: v0.6.1
Before I say anything - I am not promoting this provider, just making a MOD that uses it. This is not a ploy to get you to use them.

This MOD will use http://www.clicksms.co.uk to allow users to send SMS via a form on your forum

I have now made one for smskaufen.de, which you can download at the link bellow, it contains a few more features, which will be added to the clicksms version when I get round to it.

SMS Kaufen Version - German and English anguages included

phpBB3 Topic: http://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopi ... 0&t=544083
Features

User Side
only allowed to send to someone using the board
mailing lists (each user can have x amounts)
Send to number outside your board
Number validation (6 digit, sent to phone)
Buy credits (1 credit being one text) - via paypal (automatic IPN)
add your number to the board database (no one will ever see it)

Admin Panel
Set cost per credit
Set free credits per user per month in ACP
Add a powered by message to all texts
set currency
disable sms*
disable single sms*
disable new credits
disable lists* - will only disable create etc - so admin can still make.
give user free credits
set amount of mailing lists per user
ban user from SMS sending
ban user from sms lists**
Set username/password/account type (clicksms)

* If the user is admin, they will still be able to
** still allowed to join lists

in green are the features in SMS kaufen which will be added to the clicksms version

Feedback Welcome.

Chris

All MOD downloads should be back now - Sorry for that and serious lack of support! - If anyone wants to take over or help with any of my MODs the offer would be apreciated as I have little time for phpBB Modding recently!

Again very sorry for not supporting these MODs recently.

not pay me, I will get no profit.

You pay for the SMS's and then this script will do the sending via your board.

The people who you pay are clicksms

I first looked into it, as you could make some profit.

say you buy the texts for 5p each, you can then charge 9p (12p is most service providers charge) you make 4p profit, doesn't sound much, but over say 5000 SMS's you make about £200.

too sum up, you pay for the SMS not the script - the script willbe GPL

will do.

Some new features added above - mostly permissions based stuff.

User side core code done (the code that does the jobs) just need to make the user interface

admin side not started

MOD is about 40% complete

i got it slightly wrong.


I believe it is now about 40% - 50% done - but a lot of work has been done since i said 40%

I need to finish off user side php code
make user side template files
do admin panel (shouldn't take long)
do admin template files

then finally make a mod file...

the user side php alone is many many many lines - mainly mailing list stuff

EDIT

finished user side php at just over 1,050 lines i think..

I suspect so, I havn't purchased yet, not until this is finished.

Started on user side tpls now

when they are finished (excluding mod file) that will be about 70% of MOD, with mod file 60% as i need to right up all the lang vars (find them first! as i forgot to take note as i went along!!!)
