I thought of delivering 3.0 with the next step: implementing another entities record to store the inviter with, but since Mary is so impatiently waiting on something to show up, I created an intermediate version dedicated to her: showing the usage of
ossn_extend_view. Here, in order to display the inviter on the admin backend.
It makes sense anyway, because the question goes to Balamurali: What exactly do you want to display?
We have learned that the
'user', 'created', callback is returning only a user guid, thus displaying something like invited by 1234 wouldn't be really helpful.
@Mary, there is no GUI right now this is under development and the whole component is meant for Balamurali discussion as a guidance.
Superb. Thank you for 2.0. I will test this and let you know if any issues.
I still dont find where to see the note on who was invited by whom. I even used the Version: 2.0 but everything is the same - there is no mention of who invited whom.
Version 2.0 is available now, creating/updating
ossn_entities records of type
user and subtype
members_invited (see new code in SuccessfullyInvitedMembers.php)
For testing I recommend
ossn_entitiestable (reverse the ordering to see the latest records on top)
Thanks Z-Man. I was thinking in the Admin UI, under edit user we add a display-only field "invited by". This will also help in auditing to know who invited.
Also, for the invited user, next to their name, near user points, they could see the Referrals counter similar to the points.
We wanted to give a free lifetime membership and the more they refer they also get a free lifetime premium membership. Just so the invite could bring more users to the platform.
Hope this makes sense. Thank You.
Hmm ... I don't know exactly where Balamurali's idea is aiming at, ask him. ;)
But where does it appear who is the inviter ? It will be visible in some section of the admin panel or somewhere else?
Fine, so the code is working correctly. ;)
As I wrote, Version 1.0 is just a skeleton, a starting point to implement your idea.
Actually, there is nothing visible up to now.
Have a look into the com file and turn your error logging on, let an invited member register and watch the flow in your
Next you should start phpmyadmin or another database tool and have a closer look at the ossn_entities table. Because that's the table where we have to add and update the counter records in Version 2.0
I installed and tested this.
Z-Man, where do I see the Counter in the UI? I checked the timeline, user account settings, in the user points area etc, but couldn't locate. Please advise. Thank You.
