Push Subsciptions, Add On for Spam-O-Matic

I am still using Vb4. Once I registered on a site and they had a modification very similar to the one I am presenting, but of course developed by someone who knows what they were doing (not me). I did my best to replicate their idea.

The idea really goes well with Glowhosts Spam-O-Matic. Spammers won't pay to bypass the registration system, so I decided to offer a $2.00 bypass to an unmoderated, fully registered membership. I won't say it makes a pile, but every little bit helps and there are people who don't want to spend $12.00 for a supporting membership who will drop $2.00.

What it does is ad a colorful table when a user register as soon as they complete their registration. The table displays the various subscriptions available. The table is also presented on the subscriptions page found in the user settings.

By posting this, maybe some coder will pick up the idea and develop a good plug in that can work a little more smoothly. I tried, but couldn't succeed, to be able to purchase a membership directly from the "Registration Complete" screen with out going though the subscription template.

Sorry, no support. I hope I have touched on all the points needed to give you a successful installation.

First (optional) install GlowHost's Spam-O-Matic ( )

Go to Admincp > Subscriptions > Add New Subscription.

Create a new subscription called "Registered". A suggested price might be $2.00. Check "Recurring" is off.

As mentioned, I have spent quite a bit of time trying to get the phrase modification to bypass the template modification and just go to the order screen, but gave up. Hence the extra step of going to payments.php and not directly to payments.php?do=order when someone's interest is peaked after registration.

Go to

-Veiw the source and search for "cost".

-Here you will find the links for the buttons you will use in your phrase and template modifications in this example there are two subscriptions available between line 380 and 413.

Go to: Admincp > Languages & Phrases > Phrase Manager. Use "Search in Phrases", search for "registration", find "registration complete".

Modify it to something like:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Go to:
Admincp > Styles & Templates > Style Manager > Edit Templates > Subscriptions (Paid) Templates > subscription

Modify it to be something like this:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

To get the subscriptions available into your table, the template: subscription_availablebit will have to be modified something like:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.
