This contacts importer script is integrating with content management systems (aka CMS) like phpFoX, SimpleMachines Forum (SMF), Joomla, JamRoom, Social Engine, Wordpress, phpizabi, myBB, joovili, jamit job, PhpBB, Boonex Dolphin, PunBB, Dating Pro, Joomla1.0, PHPMELODY, symfony, Drupal, vBulletin. Open Inviter is written in PHP 5 (no database required but cURL or wget required) and running on any webserver (tested on Apache) offering advanced tell a friend features. OpenInviterTM is a free self hosted solution that does not use a third party gateway (or API) to import contacts.

Install Instructions
1. Upload the oi_settings.php to the adminCP dir.
2. Import the product-openinviter.xml

Done for my side of things.

Go to: http://openinviter.com/
1.Sign up for an account and download the package for vbulletin.
2.copy the Openinviter folder to your root vBulletin
3.Do nothing with the oi_settings.php and product-openinvitervbulletinediti.xml that come with their version.

If you use theirs, there is a security hole which I have patched in mine. I am waiting for them to email me back.

What did I change?
Changed how it is displayed in misc.php not index.php.
Also changed how it is displayed on the page in its own table instead of above the header.
Made the admin panel page alot nicer to look at.
Fixed security issues.


Fixes for their code.

We have this mod tagged, as it looks very interesting.

Could you confirm. Does the open inviter, when connected, link you to your respective addressbook within whicheever 3rd party you chose eg."gmail"

What happens next, does it import every single person to your vb account, or give you a tick list of people on that addressbook to invite to your forum ?

Please could you confirm, as we dont want generic invited being sent to everyone.

I for instance have 10-20,000 contacts within just one gmail account.

It imports them to a list then you have check boxes of who you want to invite.
You set one message that is sent and the user can enter their own message.
It will then send both messages to the users email box.

Thanks for the reply.

May I ask, the importer, does this in any way, store user contacts in 3rd party areas, which would / could present security issues.

Is the username / password md5

Currently it doesn't call home but they plan to make it call home to track user and api key. Which I will not upgrade when it calls home. It runs completely on your server and logins directly to the provider you choose. The login looks as if it came from the users computer.

My biggest concern with this is security.

Its not encrypted.

The user and password being sent to aol, gmail etc?

If I make it encrypt the password on my server then send it to aol, gmail etc. It will show the wrong password as being entered. If you have any ideas how to get myspace, aol, gmail, etc. to accept encrypted mails let me know. I don't see this as any different then logging on to any of the services over your browser with out using https.

I mean if someone was sniffing your connection sure they will see the plain test password. Turn on ssl on your server. Problem fixed.

Any possible way you can select the contacts you wish to send the invite on? I tried the demo at : http://openinviter.com/demo/ and it grabs all the contacts right away.
