Coupons (Groupon style)
by Christos Teriakis (aka ChrisTERiS)


Please note that from
11 Aug 2013
you can get support only in my site
http://www.teriakis.com


Demo: http://www.christeris.net/dev42/coupons.php
Demo Accounts:
demouser1 / demopass1
demouser2 / demopass2
demouser3 / demopass3
1.- How it works
  • Depending on his usergroup permissions a user can post a discount coupon for a product or service. He can set the discount percentage which appears in a nice way in the frontend to attract members.
  • Members of your site (having permissions to order) can browse per category, or search in many ways (eg location), to find out the best offer.
  • After clicking "Get Coupon", they'll get a confirmation PM, plus the seller's contact details, to obtain the product in discounted price.
  • Simple ....but works fine.
2.- Features
  • Unlimited depth of categories
  • Unique and very nice interface
  • Use realtime countdown for coupon expiration
  • Has PM templates for:
    • PM user when admin approves the coupon
    • PM user when admin rejects the coupon
    • PM buyer a confirmation message with seller's contact details
    • PM seller when a user places an order
    • PM seller when a coupon goed out of stock
    • PM seller when a coupon expires
    • PM Buyer who won, on the Auction's expiration
    • PM Seller with Buyer's details on the Auction's expiration
  • Supports 5 statuses:
    • Open
    • Hidden
    • Expired
    • Out of stock
  • There are listings for:
    • Category coupons
    • Timeframe (What's New) coupons
    • Search Results
3.- Usergroup Permissions
  • Can Access the Coupons section (See the Tab menu, see listings).
  • Can Post a Coupon
  • Can Order a Coupon
  • Coupon posts needs or not approval. For trusted usergroups set it to No
  • Maximum amount of concurrent (active) coupons
4.- Installation
  1. Download and unzip the file Coupons_XXXX.zip
  2. Upload the content of upload folder to the directory where your vB installation is. As a check: coupons.php must be on the same directory as global.php, forum.php etc. This Mod os not working out of vB installation directory.
  3. CMOD 777 the directories:
    1. christeris/coupons/photos
    2. christeris/coupons/photos/thumbs
  4. Goto Admincp and import product-coupons.xml. Double check before if you have another product with the same name.
  5. Set the various settings in Coupons->General settings
  6. Set usergroup permissions
  7. Check and modify if you want PM templates.
  8. Set categories
5.- SEO URLs
  • If you're using vbSeo open the file Coupons_vBSEO_Custom_Rewrite_Rules.txt and add them to your vbSeo installation.
  • If you're using .htaccasse file copy the contents of htaccess.txt and add it to your current .htaccess files. If you don't have such file and your server is compatible with such files, upload htaccess.txt to your vB directory and rename it to: .htaccess
6.- Copyright Link

Since the time that DBTech released their Copyright Manager, I've removed my own copyrights. I found their action insulting me to maximum. Their wording "Site is powered by vBulletin AddOns and Modules by Dragonbyte Tech" (and not "Some parts of this site"), means that everything there is their own work, ignoring on the worst way the fact that there are 100's of other coders and designers who are supporting this community for years. So, I'm letting the glory to them. No copyrights from my side.

Enjoy it

OK, I think I get it. And I think it'll be pretty useful! As CharlieDelta says, though, the layout is broken on your demo site.

I've installed this and played a little. Looks cool!

Couple of issues:

- the red/green price colour font changes don't work [Edit - that's weird. it's suddenly working now!]

And feature requests, if you're taking them (don't worry if you're not):

- where something is $0 it really should have "free!" or something there

- and finally: is there any way it can calculate the % drop or the price drop if the user enters one or the other? I had a devil of a time trying to remember how to work out what % $3 off $12.99 was! Haven't done that in years!

Spoke too soon.

OK, so I enter a coupon, but it's cutting it off after 25 characters. The site I sell my products at (rpgnow.com) has much longer coupon codes than that.

Same layout issue as reported above. Fixed it my removing width=50% from the first line of the coupons_categories_bit, but I don't know how permanent a fix that is! (Edit - yeah, adding a fourth coupon then makes things worse; it's trying to squeeze them all into the first row).

Exactly this. Another example is the Auto classifieds. They're normal classifieds but they're using different layout and different questions relevant to autos.

Let it to me . I read Charlie's report from the email, but I had an unexpected personal issue so I haven't the time to work on this. Today I'm free so I can work on any reported issue.

Bit confused over approving user coupons.

I can see there's a coupon waiting, and I can approve or disapprove it. I can't actually look at it n order to decide whether it should be approved or disapproved though. Am I missing something?
