Hi,

first of all I apologize if there is already opened topic with same question, but I searched forum and couldn't find anything similar.

I'm looking for nuke modification where I will be able to manage premium / payed users on my site (no banners etc.).

Can anyone give me hint where should I look or if such mod already exist?

Thx!

The subscribed users option already exists in phpNuke, but it is not integrated with any payment system (Paypal IPN, etc). You'd have to manage which users have paid manually

I think the module from Western Studios would probably do the job.

It works....but only so so. I am using it now. It is very hard to alter in any way. The admin interface is about as confusing as it comes and the support is only OK. The thing that really gets me on the down side of this mod is how the install instructs work. After your "membership" is up.....and you have to reinstall anything you have to go back and beg for access to the instructions. BE smart and copy them from the site and save them with your files.

At some point...I hope there is a better way.

Just my .02

I think I will do my own pay mod. Users in my country doesn't use paypal so often, so I will have to write bills by my own. I don't think this will be so hard, just few new rows in nuke_users tables (user_pay_status and user_pay_end). Smile

Then few modification in theme.php files to disable banners and so on... Smile

Don't alter core tables if you can help it as it can become a maintenenance headache. It would be better to use a different table and link them based on username and userid.

If you are going to do it....tie it to groups so you can control just about anything.

You pay your money....You are added to Group X for Time Y. Group X has access to Z or does not get banners or whatever. I would think making several payment options would be key here including PayPal. I use a lot of this kind of stuff. If you need some help from the end user or webmaster standpoint let me know.

Sorry to bring back an old post but, I am looking for something like this as I have a custom old membership module that only half works.

Basically I am looking for a module that will


Automatically take payment from paypal,

Then add the user to a NSN group which will then add it to the forums group with all correct permissions

Assign the user a membership number

Change members rank automatically

Email users reminders when membership is due to expire

Remove members from groups when expired


Dawg as you have used this would you say this module would do all or most of these, I know there are forums on there site but you have to subscribe to access the installation forums

So any feedback would be appreciated

Thanks Kenno

Yes, It works. It is OK. It leaves alot to be desired IMHO but it does work.

I tried to hire someone to build us a GOOD one for RN....But it did not happen. Maybe this summer when I get FATT and happy again.

The one I have currently is a custom one that is quite old and only adds users to the forum groups and does not automatically assign a number or remove them from the group at time of expiration.
It also does not have an admin panel accessed through the admin area, this is accessed just via a link

If you want this to have a look at maybe sometime in the future to add, improve and modify it then that would not be a problem, but it would need a lot of work to make it 100% usable.

I might give the Westernstudios module a try then, its gotta be better then a member having to manually add user details to spreadsheets.

What are your main concerns with this module to make it only OK

Thanks Kenno
