vbCoupons v1.4


About this mod:

This hack allows the user to input a coupon code that deducts the value of it from the subscription costs before they go to pay for a subscription.

For example:
1. You advertise for new members and have and advert saying 'Join before the end of April and get 40% off the first month! Just register and enter coupon code OFFER1"
2. In Admincp -> vbCoupons you configure a coupon called OFFER1 with value of 40, and set a date for the validity of the coupon.
3. User registers, and enters coupon code OFFER1 on the payments.php page. The page updates the normal subscription prices to reflect the offer. Then they go to pay for it.

Notes:

1. Since the offer code expires when you set it to, the users will not be able to renew with that coupon unless the subscription runs out before the coupon validity does; thus it's better to use short-validity coupons and constantly change them.
2. The value of the coupon in the Admin Panel is given as a monetary value, e.g. a coupon with value 3.50 will give $3.50 (€3.50; £3.50, depending on currencies activated) off paid subscription before the user goes to pay for it.

Features:

* Manage Coupons: Singly Add/Edit/Delete; Mass-delete.
* Set coupon valid for particular subscription ID's.
* Limit use by date or times it can be used.
* Mass-Generate coupons for distribution.
* Generate coupon discount codes and post to a new thread in a specified forum. A message may be sent with the codes. You can decide the thread title too.
* Input on features you would like to see for this hack is very welcome, but may not be possible to implement.

Time to install: 5 mins

edit: uh oh. Maybe not in your one.

Siúcra (expletive).
The damn updated xml wasn't packaged with it.

Upload the one attached to this post to your ./includes/xml/ directory and it will show for you when you refresh your admincp.

Sorry about that - obviously I'm the thick one around here

I have updated the original zip with this xml file.

Suggestions: Can you auto generate (md5) the coupons names with a prefix that we set, e.g. Easter-1x54uy6yzt

Can you add an option to generate multiple coupons at once?

Like bulk-add some coupons that you can then use to distribute and track in various places?
That's entirely possible with some simple options.

Explain the use of this more so I don't get it wrong, please

You've got it right: bulk adding them so you could mass mail them. Tracking will be nice

Actually, I went off and had a think about what you said Lionel, and I don't think your suggestion is needed for this hack (not in the way I'm thinking about it anyway).

For example: if you create a single coupon, it's valid to be used by anyone who has the code.
So if you create the coupon 'Easter' and email it to certain people for a 50% off offer, they can all use that code. The hack only takes the value of a particular coupon off a persons potential payments; it doesn't discriminate about who owns the code.

Unless you mean to add person-specific coupons to people, in which case they could post theirs all over the internet (the same way as if there was only one code in existence) and everyone who had it could still use it.
It would defeat the purpose of anything if a single code were assigned to a single person, creating a great many queries for your board with little comparative return.

Unless, of course, you mean something entirely different in the first place

Do you have admin permissions 'Can Admin Users'?
I would presume anyone installing or using this would.
Go to Usergroups -> Administrator Permissions and check yours, just to be sure.

Force a refresh of your admincp, i.e. the whole page, so that the panels on the left are regenerated.

The ./includes/xml/cpnav_vbcoupons.xml is what makes the link in the admincp, so if you have that file, you should have the menu too.

I even downloaded v3.7RC1 to check, and there's nothing in this mod that shouldn't work on it, and it should even work on 3.5.4 as well.

Minor Update for those who have installed this mod at this time:
Go to Plugin Manager -> Find Fetch Coupon Template -> Edit.
Change hook location from paidsub_list_available to paidsub_complete or the coupons bit will show multiple times on the payments.php page.

Everyone else: never mind this if you're just downloading the mod after this post
