I got it now where if I put in a direct link it will show an image. But with a default blank entry box is when the issue arises. somewhere in your code you have it adding the BBcode I would imagine.

There is no BBcode used for the image. It's a regular <img...> HTML tag.

Is there any way that it can be changed from a minimum Required posts to a minimum Posts Per Day

The problem with minimum posts is that users post like hell to reach the minimum post requirement then stop posting.

If it was set to look up the posts per day, this would encourage people to keep posting ?

Or even better, if you could set it to x amount of posts in the last y amount of days

I think you missed this in the description of this add-on..

NOTE: Except for bug fixes, this mod is no longer being updated. I strongly suggest upgrading to vB 4.

Slow to load -

Hi - I have Raffles setup and they are working fine. People are able to enter and the drowning happens as planned -

but when I pull up the raffle page with all entries it takes about 20 seconds to load- we currently have one active and 3 completed raffles.

When pulling up the individual raffles the pages takes about 5 seconds to load:

http://www.dfwareamoms.com/forums/ra...do=raffle&id=5

We have a large board with over 2 million posts but running on a dedicated server and everything else on the site is fast....

Running VB V 3.8.7
Running Raffles V 1.1.2

any thoughts?

Thanks in advance.

If you have a large number of entries for a raffle, the raffle must take the time to compile the list for the template. That is what is taking the time. I'd suggest not allowing people to view who has entered.

Also, to reduce the size of the table in the database, I'd delete all entries for old raffles.

I would like to have people BUY tickets for the raffle on PayPal.

Can this be done?

If so, can you tell me how?


Thanks,

Nelson

Sorry, was out of town for a few days. I see you have solved the problem on my site.

Nelson58 09 Mar 2014 15:31

Not exactly.....

I created a currency in VBCredits II named "Raffles". You go to PayPal to buy that currency. Then you should have it in your VBCredits II account.

You set your Raffle mod to accept "Raffles" instead of "Credits" as payment (some phrases need to be edited in the phrase section to replace "Raffles" with "Credits").

However- here is the problem.

I tested it a few times. The Raffle mod does not subtract the amount of the Raffle you joined from the amount you have in your account, so you can keep buying raffles indefinitely.

Yes, I want members to be able to buy as many Raffle chances as they want (revenue for the site), but I want what they buy subtracted from their account.

Can you help please?

Thanks!

Nelson

Your problem is that you didn't completely set up the 'Raffles' currency.

You need to set up an 'Adjust' action for the 'Raffles' currency.

Just make it identical to the 'Credits' currency 'Adjust' action.

Nelson58 09 Mar 2014 22:55

I looked, and cannot find an "adjust action" in VbCredits. Can you tell me where that is?

Thanks.

Nelson

Found it! It worked! Thanks a lot!!

Nelson58 10 Mar 2014 15:52

I changed the name of the "currency" to "tickets" so as not to cause a problem with PayPal. I made the adjustment for the currency in the action screen.

I made the cost of each ticket $3 and the raffle takes 1 ticket each. It is working very nicely.
People can buy the tickets from a link on their postbit in their posts, profile, transactions page, etc., and then take a chance.

Thanks for the very nice mod!

If you ever work on this again- a suggested upgrade- allow people to specify how many tickets must be sold before the raffle is closed, so that it is the period of time specified OR the number of tickets sold, whichever is first. So that, for example, if you want to raise $600 by doing the raffle, they could specify to keep the ticket selling period open for a week or until 200 tickets are sold at $3 each.

I'm not sure if you're using the vB3 or vB4 version since here you post in the vB3 section and on my site, you post in the vB4 section.

The vB3 version will not be updated with new functions.

Also, I'd be VERY careful about selling tickets. It is not legal to do that in most places. Check your local laws.
