I just finished this for my website and had it tested, every thing seems working fine
except the basic design i made, hopefully someone would redesign it and submit it

What is this ?
Like major websites, they grew using Invite systems , and prompting their users to send invites to their own contact lists.
This is a vbulletin clone, made as much simply as possible, to do its job
I am not a designer, that will explain the simple tables and designs used.

REQUIREMENTS : PLEASE PAY ATTENTION
You need PHP COMPILED WITH CURL WITH SSL FOR THIS TO WORK and can open remote urls.
The script works fine on many major hosts and custom configurations but the requirements cannot be bypassed.

Demo can be "viewed" on http://www.tchatting.com/forum/inviter.php
However, you need to be registered to test it and will send invites to my own forum.

Features :
Group Permissions , you can specify permissions for every group to be allowed to send invites or not.

Imports contacts from hotmail, live, yahoo, mail, lycosmail , indiatimes, rediffmail and aol
I have tested those mail successfully ( thanks for those who provided their mails to test upon as i didnt have time to register on all these sites )

Installation :
Import 1 xml file
Upload the rest to corresponding folders
EDIT postage.php BEFORE uploading
You will need to modify
$subject = "you are invited to join us!";

$from = "[email protected]";
and optionally $message variable to suit your own liking

I will try to support this as much as i can, to better help you please confirm with your host if curl with ssl is compiled at your host before asking.
If your running on Major Host companies, mention their name perhaps other members could help too or i might know of.

Thats it for now ! Be Kind , Click INSTALL !
If you appreciate this kindly reserve the copyright text, or contact me about branding free options.

As its the first release of this addon, provide feedback to help improve this product.
I will try to support it as much as i can but be aware that occasionally these mail providers change their structure, so there is no guarantees on working time.


Here is a demo on my test board http://www.dotleb.org/upload/inviter.php
This demo will NOT SEND MAIL OUT ! , it will import you contacts but will not send even if you click send ! ( we dont want inviting to a test board do we ! )

April 29th : Updated the zip file, for missing line in myhotmail.php resulting in not showing the send button for old hotmail style inboxes.

April 30th : Luky added another redesigned template here

In progress : Check invites against database to avoid inviting current users by Zia's suggestion

May 3rd :
Two changes were made
a-) Moved all files with proper changes to folder /inviter/ in forum root ( this is due to the fact that even though most hosts do not require chmod but seems some are still having this problem, especially when writing yahoo temporary files, also this cleans up a little on your forum root .
b-) Added a check array on emails against db,
This will check emails that are being sent against your own database, thus if someone is inviting a person who already exist as a member, will not receive the invite email !
Technical details : The line
$comma_separated = implode(",", $my_array); // you can change the , to another separator if you want
You can also use the variable $comma_separated to print a warning in the invite_code2 template , for example

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Also note, that I did choose not to add the emails being invited to database because that is more like stealing user's contact list emails!

UPGRADE INSTRUCTIONS
Delete all prior 11 php files on the forum root, and upload the new folder structure as
inviter.php and postage.php to forum root, and the folder as /inviter/

No other changes are necessary !
If you want to keep your folder structure and just obtain the DB Check feature, just replace the postage.php file !



Godaddy Hosting and Wild West resold hosting Note :
You will find pages loading and returning no result, that is because ythey use a curl proxy, for every file in the hack find

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

and replace with

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

This will enable the hack to work on their hosting setup !

MAY 30TH :

First sorry for not supporting this as much as earlier i did but due to the busy incidents at lebanon and my actual job in a local newspaper department there was no time for personal hobbies .
This update, with a special Thanks to The Bish who volunteered his ftp access to fix the Yahoo import error .
The script itself had no problems, but due to different servers configurations the problems he faced could also be yours .
Download and update your script with May-30 Project zip file ONLY IF all other scripts are working EXCEPT myyahoo.php !
Extra NOTES to avoid myyahoo.php errors :
chmod folder inviter 777
chmod *.php files (inside the /invite/ folder ) 755 ( ie: myyahoo.php mygmail.php etc )
chmod *.txt files (inside the /invite/ folder ) 777

Another issue was noted when using VBSEO script is to EXCLUDE inviter.php & postage.php from vbseo config administration page ( you should know how to when using vbseo )

These steps has resolved the errors caused by yahoo importer when other importers worked but not yahoo !

yes these are viewable , just scroll down to CURL section and see if it has SSL, such as OpenSSL

Kartik , yes it should work on all previous versions that support installer,

yes the uploaded postage had uncleaned code i updated the attachment
For you just open postage.php remove the first lines
<head> <meta http-equiv="Content-Language" content="en-us"> </head>
and save, that will fix the headers issue.
Sorry, i uploaded the first attachment first time !
