[ABD] Highway Referral Invitation MOD - 0.1.0c

Postby Highway of Life » Mon May 21, 2007 11:42 pm

I am abandoning this version of the MOD temporarily until the next version is released. I’m not particularly happy yet with the MOD in it’s current state and as such am not willing to provide support for this version, yet because the topic is open, people are expecting answers.

Until the next version is released, I’m closing this topic.

MOD Author: Highway of Life
MOD Title: Highway Referral Invitation MOD
MOD Description: This mod adds the ability for users to invite friends via email, and keeps track of how many referrals they have. -- Adds a field to registration page which allows new users to enter in the member who referred them.
Gives the ability to use strictly invitations for registration on the board.
Admin can limit the number of allotted invitations per user.
Integrates with Handyman’s Cash MOD
MOD Version: 0.1.0c


Features and planned features:
Features planned in first released version of the Referral Invitation MOD:
    Referral Features:
  • Field on registration page that allows a user registering to enter the username of a current user
  • Every time a referral is added for a user, their referral count increases
  • The board will keep track of who referred who
  • A widget can be displayed anywhere showing the top 10 users with the most successful referrals
  • A widget can be displayed anywhere showing who last referred who and a link to invite YOUR friends
  • Option to allow referred users to become friends upon successful referral


    Invitation Features:
  • User can enter the emails of users they wish to invite
  • The board will keep track of the status of every invitation
    • Invitation Sent Status - with an option to send a reminder.
    • User Joined
    • User is active (made at least 1 post)
    • User visited (but did not join) - with an option to send a reminder.
  • User can have a limited number of invitations or unlimited
  • If the user has more than one invitation remaining, they can enter more friends emails to invite.
  • Invitations can expire after a set amount of time, and the invitation will be awarded back to the user.
  • Administrator can set the limit for invitations and assign additional invitations to groups or users manually
  • Administrator can revoke the permission for a user to use the invitation system -- useful if a user abuses it.
  • Ability to disable board registration, in which case an invitation key would be required to register. -- for private boards
  • Administrator can set the format of the invitation e-mail, or use a default template provided in multiple languages.
  • Memberlist in ACP will show how users with the most invitations left, and the users who have depleted their invitation count. This is useful if an Admin needs to assign users more invitations to pass out.
  • Users can donate invitations to other users
  • If a user is inside of a group, and they have permission to invite others to that group, the user invited will be automatically added to the group upon successful invitation. -- useful to provide group or forum specific invitations.
  • Option to set number of additional invitations awarded to users based on number of successful invitations
  • Option to set number of additional invitations awarded to users based on post count
  • Administration options will be included for all of these features, so you can set the invitation to be extremely simple, or utilize ALL of the features at your option.

I’m putting a few extra features in it... it’s about 90% complete (actually works with Beta5, but don’t think it works with RC1 yet)

No scheduled time though, just when I get to it. ;)

Hi Nick,

First post updated... see if that has the features you are after.
for the phpBB3 RC1 release, I don’t plan on putting the "invitation only" feature in there yet.
But I do have that planned for a later release.

Very nice.

It would be better if they had an special url to register out, so they don't have to put in the user who showed them it in an text box. And then the url has like the username in it so it saves it.

It's a bit more advance but would be cool.

I don’t quite get your meaning...? :?

When you come to the site, and register, you have the ability to fill out the referral field or leave it empty.

If you send a referral to someone, via email or elsewhere, and they click that link, it automatically credits you for the referral.
The referral field is just there in case the referral variable is empty. -- which would mean the user did not click on a referral link to come to the site.

this mod looks good =]

maybe you can have an option to put statistics at the bottom of index.php, showing the top x referrers and how many people theyve referred?
also making it work with the cash system is a great idea :) how long do you think it will be before you release this with cash mod integration?

Well, I don’t plan on adding that to the MOD initially, but any Stat MOD would be able to generate that data. -- I do have a Graph/Stat MOD planned, the graphs are done (on STG), but it’s further off, and I don’t want it high on my priority list, so I’ve not posted the MOD here on phpBB.com
expx wrote:also making it work with the cash system is a great idea :) how long do you think it will be before you release this with cash mod integration?
Hard to say, first thing I want to do is get this in Beta for RC1, and the Cash MOD for RC1 is not quite ready, so it’s too difficult to determine at this time. ;)

Hmm... alright, I’ll do it. :D

But not in the first version... first version just needs to be updated to RC1, then I can work in those extra features. ;)

Cant wait for this mod to be released :D

I never thought these kind of referal mods worked, until I installed one on phpBB2 - my memberlist shot up!

Highway of life - thank you for creating such a mod :D
I know its ready when its ready, but what type of time scale are you looking at roughly?

Nice mod!

Can you make a referral invitation mod for selected forum only instead of the board? or maybe you can make two different type of referral invitation mod?

Thanks. :)
I already have a basic (simple) referral MOD for Beta5, so I just need to update it to RC1... I can go ahead and do that right away, but some of the more advanced (Invitation features) won’t be available until the next version.

Not sure what you’re getting at...
What would it do?
