DESCRIPTION

A complete invites system for your vBulletin board.

STATISTICS

File Uploads: 3
Template Changes: 4
Products to Install: 1


FEATURES

Configuration Options:
  • The system can be turned on and off.
  • Registration can be set to either require invite code to sign up or to continue allowing regular registrations when the system is on.
  • Invite Expiration Period.
  • Minimal Posts Required to Receive Changes in Number of Invites.
  • Minimal Reputation Required to Receive Changes in Number of Invites.
  • Number of Posts Required to Get One (1) Invite.
  • Number of Invites Received or Subtracted per Reputation (+ for positive, - for negative).
  • Initial Number of Invites Given on Registration (Sign Up).
  • Usergroups that May Not Use Invite Manager.
  • Usergroups that May Use Invite Manager (Optional Override).
  • Initial Registration Usergroup (only pertaining to registration by invites).
  • Do or Do Not make users linked by an invite mutual buddies after the completion of registration of the person invited.
  • Single / Multiple Address Line Field.
  • If Multiple, Number of Fields to Show.
Miscellaneous Features:
  • Upon invite-based registration, the person who issued the invite is set up as a referrer of the person invited. Therefore, free specification of a referrer is restricted during such registration.
  • Image (GD) Verification.
  • Administrator can manually edit any user's invite count.
  • If a user is permitted to issue invites (based on both the number of unused invites and the system permissions), that user has a link to invites of usercp home (says "Click here to invite new users!"). When a user has no invites left, the link does not show up. Nevertheless, as long as system permissions allow access to the Invite Manager, the usercp navlink continues to show up, so that the user would have access to his/her invite history, which is available just below the "Issue New Invite" form.
  • If registration is set to require invite code to sign up, the navbar register link becomes hidden.
  • If registration is set to continue allowing non-invited sign ups, the number of invites available to any single user is unlimited. Therefore, the number of invites left does not show up.
  • Invite History in UserCP, on the bottom of the invite manager.
  • Single-Line AddressField, with Unlimited # Of Simultaneous Recipients, within the bounds of invite tokens.
  • Multiple-Line AddressField, with Limited Configurable # Of Simultaneous Recipients, within the bounds of invite tokens.
  • Unregistered Users, Banned Users and Users with No Forumview Permissions cannot use invite manager. Therefore, you do not have to specify those usergroups in the list of usergroups that may not use the invite manager.
  • Invite counts are automatically updated once a week, based on the admincp-configured settings.
  • Per-user invite usage restriction.
  • Inactive users, who do not post anything new, will gradually lose all of their invites.

1.3.0
[+] New Config Option: Single-Field / Multiple-Field Address Line (Default: Multiple-Field)
[+] New Config Option: Number of fields to show if multiple option is chosen.
[+] User Option, which lets an administrator restrict invite system usage for that single user.
[F] Fixed Bug, which prevented a user from registration if COPPA was enabled.
[F] Fixed Bug, which prevented a user from sending out an invite if he had zero invites and dependency on registration was turned off.

[F] A couple of hard-coded forgotten phrases have been moved into the phrase system.

1.0.1
[+] Amount of posts required to get one invite is now configurable
[+] When a user can issue invites, he/she has a link on usercp (which says "Click here to Invite a New User!")
[+] When invites are required to register, there is no direct "Register" link in the navbar
[+] When invites are not required to register, there is no limitation on invites, and therefore the number of invites left is not shown

[+] More descriptive AdminCP Hack Options
[F] Added TABLE_PREFIX to the Install Code
[F] Fixed a Typo in Registration Code

So how are new invites given, if at all? I'm just curious how invites are sent around. It doesn't really say anywhere.

Obviously, it sends invites via e-mail, because it cannot send them via PM to not-yet-existant users

The answer to your question has been added to the FAQ post

......

- Weekly Cron adds or subtracts from users' invite counts based on their posting activity during each week

I know. Like... how many posts do they make to get one invite? I'm trying to figure this out because I don't want them getting one invite per post.

They get one invite for every 5 posts they made during last week.

Okay... In the update_invitecounts.php file... can I change the amount in the following line to a new number?


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

Can I change the number five to say... thirty... and it will give one invite for every thirty posts?

Yes, that's right.
Should that be configurable in the next release?

I think it should be. Forums with a lot of active posting may not want to be giving out that many invites. For example, a site with 400,000 users who are each making 200+ posts per week would probably either kill the sites bandwidth that next Monday, or never have the time to use all of their invites. Yeah, I believe it should be added in the next update.

I appreciate your help. =D Great hack!

I'm back!!! ._.

I have a few users saying that the email is not being sent after they make the invite out and submit it. It's been half an hour and nothing. What could the problem be?
