Hello,


Your answers:


1: Yes, there should be a default affilate widget, or if not, you can code an affilate widget.
2: I don't know, be creative Very Happy.
3. Yes, if you have a paypal account, you can create a donation button that is hooked up to your account.
5. Yes, paypal is a method you as an admin can use to purchase credits.
6. Do you mean the copyrights? If so, you can get rid of these using credits.
7. Yes, of course, why wouldn't they be Razz.

-Brandon

You can buy credits using paypal by going to the miscellanous area of the admin panel and hitting buy credits, you should see a paypal option there. There are total of 3 options for payment I belive, Skrill only being 1.

You can a forum 'private' by creating a group, then in the 'forum' permissions, have it so that group and above can and/or post in that forum. I would suggest being in 'Advanced mode' in both the admin panel in general and on the forum permissions screen.

Hmm that's weird, I just checked on my forum, I see paypal as an option:




May I ask what country or area you live in? Depending on that, the option may or may not be available to you in your area.

Unfornatelly, if paypal is not available in your country, then it can't be used as payment method from Lebannon or another country with restrictions or limitations on it, this is beyond Forumotion's control and unfornatelly I don't see this being changed. There is nothing you nor I can do about this, sorry Sad.

Are you trying to connect a private Paypal account to your Forumotion account? If yes, it is not possible.

No @SLGray , he/she wants to buy credits using paypal, however, its not available as a payment option probably due to the country he lives in (Lebannon).

Correct. We have no control over which countries allow PayPal. You will have to contact PayPal directly about that.

When I say communities, I am referring to the different language communities like English, French, German, Arabic, etc.
