Often sites like to run contests for referrals, or members just like to be credited for those they refer to your site.

An easier way to do this is to use a referral link that automatically credits the user if the person they refer registers after using their link to get to your site.

You can add such a link into the USER CP shell so that if they wish to use the link to refer people to your site they can easily obtain access to it, copy it and paste it into e-mail, etc.


In Template USERCP_SHELL find:

Below that add:

This will place your link in the USER CP under the "Your Profile" area.

I install it, when I click on the user cp, then on the referral link, what is it supposed to do? I thought it was supposed to be able to say who referred you. Thanks for the help.

It gives each user a unique link that they can use when they are promoting your site. Any person who clicks that link and then registers to the site will automatically have the username associated to the link as their referrer.

Basically it makes it so they can get credit for referring new members.

This works best for sites that are having contests for member drives.

I took it out because it only adds itself to the user CP shell nav which is on the left side of my usercp, it lists itself as... a choice, I want it to show up in the contact field and i tried it but it only gives my ID on everyones contact slide...

mytalkcarolina.com is where it will be at and ill put it in if you want to look at it and see what we can do???

Do you have a test account? We may be able to get it to show up where you want it, then add it. It shouldn't be too difficult.

Okay, and I need to know exactly what effect you are looking for.

I wanted my users to have quick access to their referral ID without having to know the full url in their head, so I created a quick little link that they could use.

Are you looking to have it somewhere special? I wasn't able to find a contact box using your test account.

We can likely put the link anywhere you want it, I just need to know where you want it and see the template coding...
