Just a thought

With viglink now rolling out with 3.2 to try and generate some revenue for phpBB will we see how much has been generated and what the money will be used for?

Speaking from experience people like to see figures and also what funds are used for as well as targets if phpBB has one in mind

Having something like this could encourage more admins to enable viglink if they see what funds are used for

That would be 2.384.785 $ per year just for this board alone.

How about a progress bar so we can see how much people donate on top of the website and ask people to donate?
Like on http://www.fsf.org/
I like to see the progress bar, it feels like we are going somewhere. If it moves that is.

You can set a goal for 6 months and let it run and see how maybe will be donated.
If the bar does not reach the goal you write "Donate or VigLink extension will be enabled but default".
I agree with what this user says

I would make my donation to PHPBB3

I can't believe I was so far behind updating my forum that I'm just seeing this. :oops:

I'm not going to read through ALL the pages to see if this has ever been mentioned but I was wondering, could PHPBB make a youtube channel they could use for income? There are a LOT of things people come here to get help with. you could add videos to some, or something. Even if you just put out videos discussing future updates and things of that nature... There could be SOME revenue there I'd think. Just a thought. I'm guessing it's been thought of before but it never hurts to throw a thought out there right? :)

We don’t request money for anything, that’s the way we roll, you get 1-2-1 support for free so there’s no need for videos.

Also YouTube changed their monetization policies recently so now you have to have at least 1000 subscribers before any revenue is generated by your videos.

Re: Discuss: phpBB to ship with VigLink extension - phpbb 3.3?

Post by CentaurAtlas »

Hi,
Just following up on this, is VigLink still working with 3.3? I personally didn't have a problem with it, but wasn't clear on the status.

The extension is still in the ext/phpbb/viglink directory in the 3.3.0 full install download, but in the "Manage Extensions" it shows ">=3.2.0-b1,<3.3". To me that seems to say it is not working with 3.3, but I am not clear since it is still included with the install.

So,
1. Is it safe to activate it?
2. Should we wait until there is a 3.3 update?

Thanks!

I can't find the string you posted? (you're probably looking at a pre-3.2.9 install (and post- 3.2.0-b1 ;-) )

composer.json states

Code: Select all

"require": {
		"php": ">=5.4",
		"phpbb/phpbb": ">=3.2.0",
		"composer/installers": "~1.0"
	},
	"extra": {
		"display-name": "VigLink",
		"soft-require": {
			"phpbb/phpbb": ">=3.2.0-b1,<4.0.0@dev" 
Spelling is freeware, which means you can use it for free.
On the other hand, it is not open source, which means you cannot change it or publish it in a modified form.

Great, thanks! Figured I'd ask since it doesn't specify that. :-)

Can't Convert

Post by PaulHB »

I am trying to convert this to my Viglink account, and can't.

When I click on "Convert account" I end up at Sovrn, which took over Viglink some time ago. It rejected my existing account, so I started over and set up a new one. But I see no indication it has changed in PHPBB. I have a code, but nowhere to put it.

I am also trying to do the same but can't get passed the login/create account!

I had the same problem as the last couple of posters.

I actually use svorn for some advertising banners and I could not mix the 2, when contacting them after making another account they said they have no agreement with phpbb.com and to show them where I found the link.
I think the person at the other end though it was a scam, but obviously it's not.

So how do we make a viglink account lol

Mine is, or wasn a Viglink account. But since it was bought out it doesn't seem to work with this extension.

I wonder if phpBB is still getting anything out of it?
