member referrals

Post by steve8675537 » Wed Aug 29, 2007 10:22 pm

How could i go about having a referral system on my phpbb board? so my current members can reccomend other users and get credit for referring them like an affiliate of any site would.

I'm just looking for a few ideas?

thanks

steve

There are at least two referral MODs that I am aware of, but the folks that are more likely to be familiar with them and be able to point you to their related topics are going to be in the MOD Requests forum. I will move your topic there now, thanks.

I'm trying to get the mod that is recommended above but the link says:

Sorry, but this board is currently unavailable. Please try again later.

any other way of getting the 'advanced referral mod'?

Hi,

temporary download link has file to download.

in acp referral settings are ok! but there is no referral signup page / referral fields in registration!

i added all .php... files as mentioned in mod file except sql (those insert statements).

i think it's not working!

if anybody successfully implemented this mod, let me know your url and implementation procedure.

thanks,

Then we can take it you didn't update your database to handle this mod ?
You skipped this step ?

Does your host not provide you with a database management ?
If not. Do you know how to use a db_update.php file ? Download rp_140_db_update.zip.

There isn't so much a page to sign up, as it is, each user gets his or her own unique referral link, then as your members use their link you can see who has referred who & what.

Hi,

thanks for your kind replies. still problem was not fixed.

The install instructions are step by step. :?
Do you have room to install a pre-modded phpBB2 forum with the referal mod pre-installed, (looks like 2.04 MBs). phpbb2_w-referer_mod.zip, I just did a quick test to see if it would install view results, remember this is only visible and available to registered/logged in users. ;)
