- What's In and What's Out

MySocialSpace is a Social Networking Script as many others is the market, having the same functionality. But at that point stops any other similarity. What makes it unique are not the included modules, but the way that it uses these modules. If you're looking for fancy features like "paint your page green or black", sure MySocialSpace is not what you're looking for. I decided to give power to your Members (and so, profits to Admins) and not dolls to play with. Go on, read the Highlights and find out great ways to get profits from your community.

- User Highlights
  • He can build one or more fun clubs, setting them as Public (everybody can participate) or Private (registration requests need his approval)
  • He can setup his own questions per club, which are used as registration form to members who want to participate
  • Each of his clubs has it's own forum for discussion with the other members of his club. On these forums he has full Moderator rights to "clean up" unwanted posts.
  • No need to turn off the whole club or whole photo gallery if he wants to hide a photo. Every single part of the club (photo, video, blog etc) can be turn off.
  • He can not only upload videoclips, but he can add his ready YouTUBE, Yahoo etc code.
  • There is no need to mark his full club or gallery as "Adult" if he just wants to upload a sexy photo. He can mark only the specific photo as "Adult".
  • He can not only post an Ad in classifieds section to sell something, but he can sell it in real as he can accept payments with PayPal (IPN istant notification is also available).
  • He can not only post an event, but he can accept registrations and payments for the registrations, using his PayPal account (IPN istant notification is also available).
  • He can not only post his blogs, but he can index them by setting categories.
- Admin Highlights (or how to get profits)
  • By having 3 choices per module (eg can create clubs, how many clubs, unlimited clubs yes/no), he can setup an unlimited number of usergroups setting them free or paid.
  • In every category of classifieds he can setup a fix amount that users must pay to post an Ad there. Using PayPal's IPN the Ad becomes active and visible only after a successfull payment.
  • Even if your site is a free one, you can earn morey by turning Donations on.
  • Google AdSense (and any type of Banner) ready. 11 different banners at the top of each part (Clubs, Blogs, Photos etc), plus a nearly unlimited number of banner places at the bottom of page, as you can add different advertising code per category. That's great if you someone wants to become sponsor of a specific category in a specific part of your site.
  • MySocialSpace is vbSeo friendly
- Minors' (and Visitors') Protection

Unlike other scripts which don't take care to protect minors and visitors from unmonitoring posts (photos ot text), MySocialSpace has a build-in filter to show only posts marked as "non Adult" content. This switcher is avaliable in all pages and by default it's turn on (filtering on). So, it's up to your visitors to turn it off if they want to see all the content. Much more, to avoid repeating actions any time that he/she is visiting your site, this setting is storing in cookie. Also if a Member wants to participate in a Club that has adult content, he is getting a warning message about it and he must click "I Agree" to continue the registration procedure.

- Member Clubs

Clubs are the heart of MySocialSpace. Any single item from Blogs, For Sale, Galleries, Videos, Events and e-Cards belong to a Club. Depending on user's decision a Club can be Public (viewable from all Members) or Private where Members who want to participate to this club must register answering the questions that the club's owner maybe has setup and then await the authorization from the owner to be able to enter and use it. Also Club's owner must categorize his club as Adult or non Adult. Finally the owner has the ability to temporary hide his club or any sibgle part of it.
A great feature is that the owner can setup unlimited questions for his registration form using radio buttons, checkboxes, droplists, multiselect list, text and textarea. This way he can get usefull information for his decision to accept the member or not.
Each club has it's own forum where he has full Moderator rights. This is good to avoid spam posts or any post not interesting for others. Common features like Rating, Bookmarking etc are also available.

- Blogs & Articles

Blogs section has nothing special but for sure nothing less that all other blogging mods. It's special point is that the owner, can setup his own categories and so to categorize his blogs. Also it supports outgoing RSS feeds for all blogs.
Articles is the only section that currently stands seperate from Clubs, so all articles are public viewable but of course after Admin's approval. You can use them as site's news, or setup categories like Jokes, Comics etc etc.

- For Sale (Classifieds)

Another common(??) section in Social Networking scripts? But if you check it you'll see that is not just a classifieds section. It's a real mini-cart. Members can post Ads for sale, setup the price and their PayPal address so they can accept real time payments thanks to PayPals IPN system. Need more deep features? They can setup different PayPal address for each item for sale. And if Admin setups a category "Donations" for free post of Ads, then they can accept even donations from their Club's members. Members can rate and bookmark items for sale.

- Meet Me (Dating like)

This is a clone of the well known MeetMe. It's a funny Dating like module (A real Dating module with powerfull features will be realize soon). The way that it works is: Jack is seeing Mary's photo and he likes her. Then he clikcs on "Meet Me". Mary gets a message that Jack likes her and she is seeing Jack's photo. If she likes him then she accepts the invatiation and a double mach has done. From now and then they can communicate with no restrictions.

- Photos & Videos
  • Members can upload their fun/home Photos & Videos and put them to various categories
  • Members can input external embed tags (such as YouTube, Yahoo! Videos)
  • Members can organize their photos in Albums (Galleries)
  • Other members can view Photos & Videos, vote for them and leave comments
  • Ability to search for Photo & Video files
  • Ability to browse Photos & Videos by category
- Events

With features that I didn't even found in expensive Calendar scripts, this section will become very popular in your community. Depending on his permissions, every member can cost events, accept registrations and ..payments for participation!! Yes, that's right. If the member has a Premium or Business account with PayPal, can accept online payments. PayPal's Instant Payment Notification auto adds the participant on the list after a successfull payment.

- e-Cards
  • Ability to send eCards immediately or on date.
  • Membrs can personalize the cards by uploading their own photos.
  • Members can personalize the cards by using special fonts, colors using vbEditor.
  • Receiver gets the full card in the email and not a link which nobody clicks.
  • Other Members can vote on cards and leave comments for them.
  • Members can choose the right card by browsing them by category.
- Donations (More than a simple Thank You)

To get donations especially for a website is something very difficult. Do you know why? Because none webmaster gives attention to show donors in public. Just a "Thank you" email is not enought if you want to get donations from your members. Everybody wants a special care in exchange for his donation. The Donation section (in case that you'll activate it) will helps you by giving a special place for your donors with many features like top donors, most active donors etc.

- User Control Panel

A well designed place full of power. Anything that a member wants to do is there. Create anything, editing anything. Following up his sales & event registrations. Adding, removing bookmarks. Reading latest post of Club's forums that he has subscribte. Making a donation, or checking his permissions for what he can do and what not in the community. In addition, most common vB's control panel actions are there. For example, changing his profile or signature, adding photo or avatar. You must see it and you'll love it.

*** Installation ***

Step 1

Unzip MySocialSpace.zip and upload all files and directories including at vbulletin directory to the directory where vBulletin is installed.

Step 2

CMOD following directories to 777
  • photos (inside mysocialspace directory)
  • videos (inside mysocialspace directory)
  • tmp (inside mysocialspace directory/photos)
  • thumbs (inside mysocialspace directory/photos)
Step 3

For security reasons backup your database AND turn your board off

Step 4

Check at your AdminCP->vBulletin Options->Plugin/Hook System that Plugin system is enabled.

Step 5

From your AdminCP->Plugin System->Manage Products choose Add/Import Product and import the product: product_mysocialspace.xml

Step 6

If you want to add a link to your nav bar then you must edit the NAVBAR template:

Search For:

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

Add Below:

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

....or use any other word you want

Step 7

By default none usergroup has permissions to use vbMySpace, so you need to give permissions to any group. Goto AdminCP->Usergroups->Usergroup Manager and edit any usergroup you like to give permissions.

Step 8

Still in your admincp select Scheduled Tasks/Add New Scheduled task. Fill in:
  • Varname = sendcards
  • Title = Send eCards
  • Minute (0, 10, 20, 30, 40, 50)
  • Script path = ./mysocialspaceecardssender.php
  • and press Save.
Step 9
If you've installed vbSEO, Login into vbSEO Control Panel, click "Custom Rewrite Rules", insert rewrite rules (vbseorules.txt) and save settings.

Well I have installed it and even though I have set up all my group permissions, it just says nobody can do anything. It just says nobody has permisson to do create anything. Which is odd. But once I work out why that is, I think my site will really enjoy this feature.

Its mainly bizarre because if I dont give a group permission to use it or I do, that works, but when creating a club or adding a picture, it just refuses that we have permission.

In addition to my previous post for template redesign, I've forgotten to add this:
- The code is working perfect. But when I was coding this module, I was taking care just to check the code if it works or not. So, I used the standard "No permissions" message. Step by step I'll replace all these messages with the right ones. It's just a routine work.
In your case the problem is not really the usergroup permissions, but (most probabbly) that you're trying to add something (Blog, Photo etc), without to have an active club first. As I wrote Clubs are the the heart of the program, and everything (except articles) need a club to be assign to.

No, it's the full version. You don't need to buy or pay anything. Just give me the credit by letting my copyright there. I believe that I deserve it.

Thanks for posting it, even if I know about this bug. I've tested it many times, and I can guarantee that this bug is not coming from MySocialSpace or vBulletin. Most probably is coming from a confusion with another vB mod, even if I believe what you wrote that by disabling MySocialSpace it came back to normal. But this will also happen if you disable the mod that really causes the problem.

At: http://www.++++++++++.com/demoarea/ I've an out of the box vBulletin installation. Without any 3nd party module. Login there with demouser1 / demopass1 and you'll see that Go Advance is working perfect.

Mary - so I assume that this means that you do not want any help fixing the numerous bugs. Too bad - that is the beauty of vb.org, IMO - coders helping coders.

Just delete it. And this is a proof that it's 100% the commercial version which had a file (functions.php) encoded. I remembered to delete key directory but I forgot to delete ioncubecheck.php
From the other side, it's so easy to check the files to see if they're encoded or not. And I know the rules of vb.org

Its her program she can set whatever rules she wants, she doesnt owe anyone anything.

Anyway, I tried creating a club and got the same message. Im guessing this is something wrong at my end now since other people dont seem to be having this problem.

Maybe selfish, but I believe that I can fix the bugs. But just for history, the only bugs that found since the first release were some incompatibilities. You can check it in my site's forum.
