Facebook Gifts Modification - Paid Gifts
Mod Version: 1.5 Beta 1, by Cole2026 (Member) Cole2026 is offline
Developer Last Online: Jul 2020 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

vB Version: 3.8.2 Rating: (5 votes - 5.00 average) Installs: 47
Released: 20 Jun 2009 Last Update: Never Downloads: 389
Not Supported Uses Plugins Auto-Template Additional Files Translations Is in Beta Stage  

Facebook Gifts for vBulletin 3.8.x

This is what I would call the next release, so to speak, of the original gifts modification released by Christian8a. I was the coder of that product, and I am releasing this next iteration of the product with several more useful features.

In addition to being able to send gifts in the same fashion as facebook, this modification has several new features, including:
  • A new custom credits system that is integrated with Paypal. You can now charge for certain gifts using paypal seamlessly.
  • Mass Gifting and Crediting -- Administrators can now send out gifts in mass quantities through the admincp. They can send them out according to usergroup. In addition, the administrator can mass credit people (credits are used to buy gifts) and edit user's credits through the administrator control panel.
  • Usergroup Specific Gifts - Administrators can now define certain gifts as available for only "select" usergroups.

This release will be considered a beta until I can get accurate reports on bugs and problems with the system. I worked on this update over a year ago for a client and am now releasing it publically. I cannot remember how much I changed the codebase since I worked on this modification for Christian8a, so I am not sure which bugs currently still exist or which don't. In addition, this version is feature incomplete. I would like to get feature requests from users in order to figure out what would be a useful addition.

I do not have any web space currently for a demo. If anyone would be so kind as to provide links to their forum that has it installed--I'll put it up here.

Installation Instructions
  1. Unzip the provided "Gifts Modification" zip file.
  2. Upload the contents of the "upload" folder to your forumroot (with the gifts.php file going into the forum root, the gifts.php in the admincp folder to your admin folder, the two xml files to the includes/xml folder, and the images/gifts folder going into its respective area)
  3. Import Product file (in the root of the zip file it is called product.xml) -- Currently I am not supporting upgrading from the old Gifts modification, so please do this at your own risk. I will not support upgrading until this comes out of beta.
  4. Configure Gifts Settings (under Gifts category in admincp, click on Gifts Settings. Be sure to include your paypal email at the bottom if you plan on using credits, or else it will not work correctly).

I will provide support for this product as I have time.

I am not responsible for any data loss or damage caused by this product. It is provided "as-is" and install at your own risk. And of course, vBulletin.Org is the only place where a download is valid. Hosting this product at any other website is strictly prohibited without explicit permission from me. In addition, you are only permitted to use this product if you have a valid vBulletin license (which goes without saying).

Thanks, and have fun!
DO NOT INSTALL IF YOU USE VBCREDITS - There is a huge compatibility issue regarding common field names in the user table.

Installed, but I get this message when trying to access gifts.php

Steve, you do not have permission to access this page. This could be due to one of several reasons:

1. Your user account may not have sufficient privileges to access this page. Are you trying to edit someone else's post, access administrative features or some other privileged system?
2. If you are trying to post, the administrator may have disabled your account, or it may be awaiting activation.

Thanks for this mod.

Just curious, when can we expect the mass add feature to be implemented?

Please add ability to sort categories as well. Better yet, ajax implementation would rock

Thanks for this.... i'd like to make a little request if I may.

Can an option be added to disable the giving of gifts so this can be used just as a credit system which my users can use to buy credits via paypal only?

I run a photography community and I want to use this for a new photo challenge feature but the only part of it I need is the credit buying piece....

If not, no worries.. anyone else know if of any other mods that will do just the above... allow members to pay for credits.. all I need is credit integer value in the db so I can integrate with my own photo challenge system.

Thanks.

I noticed there is no way to disable the credit system.

Am I missing something?

You have to configure usergroup permissions for each usergroup. Sorry about that, I did not outline that in the directions.

Okay, noted. This will be ready for a future release (hopefully the next one).

Certainly. Marked for future release.

Yeah, you can't (yet). This is code nearly directly from a client, so the system is setup just for that client's needs. This first release was moreover for a technology preview so that everyone knew that this project was not dead. This will be in there for sure in the next release.

The next release should be released by the end of the week, just so everyone has an idea.

Certainly, albeit it will be one credit every 100 posts instead, so to speak, since credits are the primary way of buying gifts.

Cool Thank You

Great mod and thank you for your work.

You may view the mod here: http://www.masterofwar.net/forums


Click on the user name PHOENIX profile to see how it's displayed. (thats me) lol

Some notes:

Even though I uploaded everything in it's place. I had to use the add new gift function so the mod would see the gifts that originally came with the mod.

For those that have dark forums be prepared to edit your gifts in photo shop so you don't have the white background.

On pm notification: A image of the gift is not displayed, just the name of the gift.

When performing mass credit to user groups the credits are not deducted as gifts are sent. Unless I missed a setting which is most likely the issue

This is a fantastic start for a great mod addition.... Again thank you so much for your work!!!!

As I make gifts I will help make them available to help pay this forward

Thats cool, just maybe in the notification pm they get when it happens if the phrase can say something like

"Congrats you've received a free $1 credit based on your forum activity so you can buy someone a gift, Enjoy!"
