Hey guys!

I want to use the usergroup subscription from ocportal. I've setup everything, but how my members can subscribe to the usergroup? How can I create a button on my website or my forum to let my members subscribe to the group?

Thanks!

Hi,

I believe it will show upgrade links if you click the account button near the top right.

You could place those links (which are just deep links into the purchase module) anywhere you like into your page content / templates.

Using the Comcode 'if_in_group' tag should let you add the link only to members not already in a group. E.g. this targets non-administrators:

Code

[if_in_group="*,!2"]test[/if_in_group]
(administrators=2, so this is saying "members in any groups but not in group #2")

Best,
Chris

I can't find anything on the account section to upgrade to a specific usergroup subscription.

How my members can subscribe then?

Is this v9, or a heavily rethemed v10?

In any case, the account button isn't in this design – but the side_personal_stats block does have these links if you want to put that somewhere.

Otherwise go to /site/index.php?page=purchase, and pick a subscription, and copy the address bar URL into a link somewhere in your design (could be on a menu, for example).

Or, you could link people directly to site:purchase for them to pick from the list here.

It's a heavily rethemed v9. I'll ask my website manager to have a look at v10. If you upgrade to v10, does we have a lot of change to make? Do we have the account upgrade section in the account section?

They'd need to go through this upgrade process:
Upgrading from ocPortal v8/v9 to Composr v10 - Composr
This includes some amount of recreating the website theme.

Do we have the account upgrade section in the account section?

No, that's not currently a feature. I've added it to the tracker as it's an interesting approach.

There's not really a reason to upgrade to v10 specifically for this, unless you're going to change the design to include the buttons at the top of v10 (similar to how you see them on this site).
So, someone just needs to read over what I said and implement some subscribe links somewhere on the site - it could be via a menu, it could be for example on a new page, it could be in a template (e.g. so they show in the footer).
