Question Paid Subscription Question

Hi all,

I am thinking of using the paid subscription option on one of my forums. I currently use GAB (banner system) successfully on that site and it has an option to choose which usergroups to display ads to.

I have created a new usergroup for the paid subscriptions and tested that all works ok.


As many of my users have secondary usergroup membership that can see the do I set up the paid subscriptions so that these groups are removed automatically once the user pays for a subscription and is promoted to the non-ad usergroup?

Thanks for your time.

Very simple, simply setup conditionals around the ads. It would check to see if a user is part of a specific usergroup (that being your paid group) and remove the ads.

Search "Vbulletin conditionals" and you'll find them.

Permissions are inherited from the bottom up. So if a user is a member of a group which is exempt from advertisements, he/she will not see them even if they are also a member of a group which is not exempt from advertisements.
