Subscription Notifications -- Drive paid subscriptions & renewals
Mod Version: 1.2.3, by Ted S (Coder) Ted S is offline
Developer Last Online: Dec 2016 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

This modification is in the archives.
vB Version: 3.7.x Rating: (12 votes - 4.75 average) Installs: 168
Released: 19 May 2008 Last Update: 24 Dec 2008 Downloads: 884
Not Supported Uses Plugins Template Edits  

vB 4 beta version: http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=241224

Paid Subscriptions are a means of driving revenue for thousands of forums but what do you do when a subscription is about to expire? On most forums, if the subscription does not recur automatically, users lose their status and only if they notice a change in benefits do they think to renew. By proactively informing users of their subscription expiration you can help increase paid subscription renewal rates and decrease support inquiries from subscribers.

Notifications Options & Customizations:

The Subscription Notifications System can appear on your Forum Home and/or User CP pages and can display the following messages:

Expired Alert
24 Hour Alert
48 Hour Alert
7 Day Alert
1 Month Alert
Long Term Membership
No Membership

All of these messages can be configured using phrases and customized with HTML code to meet your forum's needs.

Each message is enabled/ disabled through your vB control panel with a link provided to modify the message contents using the phrase system.

Modifications/ Instructions:
Template edits: 1-2
Plugins: 1 (adds 1 template and several phrases & settings)
SQL Queries Added: 1-2

This addon should take under 5 minutes to implement and customize. Note: Minor template modifications are required for this addon to show up (see instructions file for more details)!

Compatibility with 3.6.x versions:

This addon will work with 3.6.x but the admin cp phrase links will appear broken. Users of 3.6.x versions will need to manually search for the phrases to customize.

Updates:
- 12/24/2008 - Minor bug fix to support table prefixes
- 08/26/2008 - Minor bug fix to change expired subscription message.
- 06/12/2008 - Update recent subscriber feature
- 06/06/2008 - Update to fix urls to relative path
- 06/05/2008 - Update to resolve bug with date format and multiple subscriptions

Credit goes to tspore for providing the original idea for this addon.

Well the standard vb does send out a notice on subscriptions... I'm surprised nobody has mentioned this?

Something weird is happening with the new version of this mod. In the top left corner of all my styles is the word "no". When i disable the mod, "no" goes away and when i enable it, it comes back. I've done this back and forth many times and its the same thing every time i enable it.

Why is it doing this?

Sorry about that... I left my debug mode on. Please download the new version.

The email is wonderful but it's only one touchpoint and comes out just before the susbcription ends. Reminding people via email gets them thinking but they may forget to act... seeing it again when they're on the site is just another way of reinforcing the message. For some forums all the messages make sense, for others just one or two and of course for some, none.

It seems there are some path issues. It thinks it is in the root directory of my website when it isn't so therefore the link is not correct on the "Click Here". I don't see any place to adjust this for the path so I am assuming I need to do that within the xml itself?

Ted, thank you very very much for this!

Its almost the same mod as you made only a few more things like a subsciption title phrase and a .. days left till your subscription expires phrase.

I would like to see this to in your mod if you have time to do that.
I had that mod installed. It was awesome but doesn't seem to work on 3.7 and is evidently outdated/in the graveyard. Counted down the days, had an optional checkbox to not show the message again, etc. Not bad. Ted, if you want to evolve yours, might want to look into it. I can send you the code to review, I have it somewhere.

Which brings me to this question for this mod...

How long does the notice stay on the screen for the person viewing it?

If I do:
24 Hour Alert
48 Hour Alert
7 Day Alert
1 Month Alert

Does that mean the 1 month message will remain until the 7 day one replaces it, etc.? Or do the messages show just for that visit? Sorry if this has been answered, I looked.

Good question Jason. At this point the messages show up until they are no longer relevant (i.e. the next one takes over). I'll likely add something to let the user close them down soon.

Ted I like the idea of adding something for the user to be able to add an ignore but only if that is admin adjustable. Certain users only if you know what I mean. Again thanks for this mod. I love it brother!

Tom, you can put them into a usergroup and ignore that group all through the admin options.

Has this been rectified? I had to uninstall in the meantime.

This is not a bug to be fixed... urls are setup using the standard but you can edit any of the phrases/ links to match the individual forum needs.

Note: Downloading this version may not give you the latest changes as they are released. Using third party versions of addons is not recommended and may not be supported.

The latest version of this addon uses relative urls to point the user to the same path they are already in. If you wish to customize your urls beyond the defaults you can easily do through your admin control panel by visiting the Subscription Notices System.
