Intergrated Shop

Post by Paradox RP on July 8th 2011, 2:30 pm

This has no doubt been asked but all I keep finding is this link http://help.forumotion.com/t41194-points-shop-ideas so...

I really need help. I am working on an RPG site where there will be a currency in place. The problem is I !need! a shop and the link above's idea wont work for it.
I need it so that when a user clicks a button on a html page it either sends a PM or email with set info contained, without client side email software. (No one I know uses this so its pointless.) I have searched high and low for a remedy but the only things I can find need access to a server for php.

Using a forum like the above link would ruin the overall feel of my site and be complicated for users. There has to be another way.
Please help me. I can't open my main boards untill I have this implemented.

There has to be someway to do it. With codes of some sort.

I would seriously like to know the thinking behind adding this type of points system when you cannot use it for anything. Seems like it was pointless to add.

I have a rp board too. The way i have my shop set up is with a post indicating whats for sale. My members just post a reply that they want to by that item or whatever it is. & I have my points (money) system set up so that every time a member post in that topic it takes away 10 points (money). Im not sure if this is what you were looking for but its pretty efficient. I just have to check the topic see, who bought what and deliver it to them. No manually taking away points. Hope this helps.

It would make it messy. No offence. I don't mind editing the points manually. I just need a way that will make it easy for members. I guess I'll have to just write a code that they cope and paste to a PM.

Is there a way I can make a button like the ones in user profiles that will open up the PM thingy. I know thats not clear, sorry. I don't know how else to put it.

ummmm...do you mean this?

http://yourforum.forumotion.com/privmsg?mode=post ,or you can add a &u=# to it so it automatically puts the username field with the user id you entered.

so if the founders name is "bla" and if you put http://yourforum.forumotion.com/privmsg?mode=post&u=1 it will have the username field filled in with "bla"

You could link the query to this thread & make a new thread. That shall work too.

Do you have a query now? If no, we will lock the topic. Smile
