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.
VERSION HISTORY

1.5.0
A new, commercial release.

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] Fixed Bug, which continued to show the invite form after it was submitted, even if there were no more invites left.

1.2.0
[+] New Config Option: Usergroups that May Use Invite Manager (Optional Override).
[+] New Config Option: Initial Registration Usergroup (only pertaining to registration by invites).

1.0.2
[+] Ability to send unlimited simultaneous invites, within the bounds of invite count owned.
[+] Improved invite interface (see screenshot).
[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
[+] Administrator can now edit invite counts manually using Admin Manager
[+] Administrator can now specify which usergroups cannot use Invite Manager
[+] More descriptive AdminCP Hack Options
[F] Added TABLE_PREFIX to the Install Code
[F] Fixed a Typo in Registration Code

That's a problem with the e-mail provider of that friend.

Mail not sent

I'm testing this as admin on the board 3.5.5.

After I type all info for the new invite and click "Send Invite" I can see that it goes to a pending state at the bottom. At the top it has this message "1 Invite(s) Were Sent Out Successfully To The Following People:" but the mail never gets received and the status stays on pending.

I send mails from the board so there should be no reason the mail function shouldn't work. I re-imported the hack. I double checked the template modifications and all according to the "readme".

What is confusing, I turned of "register on invite only" as I want any visitor to be able to register. In the setup (AdminCP) of the invite system it has this comment "The cron that gives out new invites will not run either" if set to no". This couldn't be the reason could it?

The status will stay pending until the person acepts it.
The fact that mail is not delievered could be caused by one of the following:
- The source and destination emails are the same (e.g you send it to webmaster@yoursite.com while your site send emails from that address also.)
- The receiver mailbox puts emails from your domain into junk box
- The message gets marked as spam by an anti spam program

The only thing it can be is:

- The source and estinatimails are the same (e.g you send it to webmaster@yoursite.com while your site send emails from that address also.)

I created a second e-mail account for myself and it still doesn't send although it says it did.

taxick, I think we have the same issue, we solve one we solve both . Keep you informed..

EDIT: Something must be wrong in my reputations. I changed the setting to -1 instead of 10 and now it works

"Minimal Reputation Required to Receive Changes in Number of Invites"

Hi,

Does anyone know what code to add unto the Invites code so that guest/visitors who are not logged in can not see the Invites link?

Thanks in advance.

AFAIK, only logged-in members who have actual Invites in their UserCP will see the Invites link.
