Paid Subscriptions and Advertising Mods

Post by bray0620 » Wed Oct 18, 2017 7:55 pm

I have searched this phpbb website for information pertaining to anyone who has written a mod which allows a board owner to charge a subscription fee. I have been directed to several pages which are anywhere from 5 to 8 years old. I can't for the life of me find anything current as in "2017".

What I am looking for is a mod that allows me to charge a fee to view certain forums on my board. This would be something like VBulliten's system I guess. Permissions and member levels etc.

Advertising mod would allow a subscribed member to "advertise a good or service" using a per click or time based system. For example, a board admin could set up different scenarios like 7 days for X $.

Do we have anything like this in a current mod? If so, can someone please point me in the right direction. I would be very interested to know if anybody else would be interested in such mod's.

Thanks for your consideration.

There are no mods in phpBB 3.2, extensions are used instead. I suggest (if you haven’t already) having a search of the extensions forums and if you don’t find anything useful make an extension request.

Not exactly an "one stop" solution, but you could use the PayPal Donation extension and once you verify payment you can add them to a group with permissions to utilize those forums.

This is the closest I could find ... extension/

It's not perfect but it does have auto group. There is now way to auto expire so you have to do that manually.
