Topic: [extension release] pun_invitation_only

New extension pun_invitation_only has been released!
It allows to limit new registrations on your forum. New members can join only if they get an invitation letter from forum administrator or from users to whom administrator gives a permission to send invtations.

You can find more information about pun_invitation_only on the Wiki page.

Let us know if you find any bugs or if there are the ways this extension can be improved.

Re: [extension release] pun_invitation_only

This option is interesting, it would be good to indicate that user on your forum to invite more people to be registered through the, this way one could give a prize or a promotion

Re: [extension release] pun_invitation_only

in the function show_invitation_form  (functions.php of extension)

you have

    $forum_page['main_head'] = 'Invite new user';

that isn't set in /lang/ file english

EDIT: so

    $forum_page['main_head'] = $lang_inv_sys['Invite new user'];

is what it should be replaced with in functions.php


 'Invite new user' =>  'Invite new user';    

added to lang/english.php

Re: [extension release] pun_invitation_only

A feature request for this extension:

I've noticed that when an invitation is sent, there doesn't seem to be a way to personalise the email.

1. It might be good if instead of just 'Hello!' the invited persons email address was in greeting.

2. It could be usefull to add a personal message to the email being sent, for example a short message saying why the forum is recommended.

Re: [extension release] pun_invitation_only

It would be nice to be able to control invites on a user level, under management, and also to see who invites who.
One more thing, maybe show who the user got invited by under profile?

I also found a bug. If you click cancel, it sends the invite anyway. If there's no adress in the textbox, it sends it to the latest one.

Re: [extension release] pun_invitation_only

Two things:

The "Invitation" link replaces the "New Messages" link for Pun PM.

Maybe you should change the placement of that link and also change what the link says, like "Invite a new user" or something to that effect.

Re: [extension release] pun_invitation_only

Well I installed it, but in doing so it sets up the invitation link right where I can my "new messages" link for pm's. 

Anyone know a workaround for this?

Hello blackbookboard!
Right now we are finishing new version of pun_invitation_only. In this version invitation link will be moved to another position.


Re: [extension release] pun_invitation_only

Try new pun_invitation_only 1.2.0!
Here are the changes in comparison with the previous version:
- Now you can either use standart invitation template or write an invotation message on your own. If there is no text added by user on invitation page, standart template is used. In case user wants to compose an invitation letter on his own, this text will be used instead of standart template.
- Link to invitation page changed it's place.
- Information about a person by whom a user was invited and information about all the new members user invited himself have been added to user's profile.

Feel free to report bugs and request new features!

Re: [extension release] pun_invitation_only

Finally, have been waiting for this release for a while now. Good job! Found one little typo so far in pun_invitation_only.php, under the invite page it says "New user's emil", easy to fix though. Thanks for an awesome extension, really appreciate the work you guys put in to this. smile

One thing though. Still missing a way to control each specific users invites under the Users och Management section. It would be nice to award specific users with invites, or vice versa.


Re: [extension release] pun_invitation_only

thx guys for this really good extension! i want to report a bug. when you are accessing the invite page and simple click the submit button without completing the email box, an invite letter will be sent to unknown adress.
also i want to ask how to make the invite and registration link look as the folder based url scheme? hope to get your help soon! Thx


Re: [extension release] pun_invitation_only

jordi, thank you for your feature request and bug report. We will take all this information into account and improve the extension soon.
