Thank you very much, I am looking for this sort of system for our forum to use for rewarding the top referees monthly (which we will do automatically).

Can't wait for the planned features, specifically the first one which will be a big plus! :P

Goodluck with the development of this mod, please don't abandon it! :P

I'd rather have one where members can also type in the referral name at the registration, but I guess this mod is good enough. it's simple, and it's just what I need...

When I tried to install the MOD on testing board with AutoMOD it edited all the files without problem, but the link for installing database changes doesn't lead to "referral_mod_install.php" , but to "......./forum/Array". So I installed it manually, created the contest and it seems that there are some problem with non English characters. It shows contest name

Code: Select all

testovac?? sout????
instead the

Code: Select all

testovací soutěž
(I wrote in ACP)

Also I played with the MOD on test forum and after 20 minutes I still have no an idea what this MOD does. To me it looks like invitations with contest (invite more people than others to win), but how should I use the "Your referral link"? Firstly I thought that I wrote it (referral link) to post to refer the member, but there is not any change in statistics in UCP. Can somebody explain me it, please?

I've released version 1.1.1 in which I fixed the UCP friend invite page title issue and the issue with non English characters. Download link in first post.

Update instructions: Replace referral_mod_install.php, includes/ucp/ucp_referral.php and includes/acp/acp_referral.php and then run the installer.

The referral link you see in the UCP can be used to refer others. For example, as a member of your board, I can post my referral link on twitter and if one of my followers access the link and joins the forum, that member will become my referral.

As for referral contests, you can start a referral contest to gain more members on your community. In the contest statistics in ACP you will see all the referrers and the members they referred during the contest.
