  • Where is referrer located?

    Referrer
    Enable the referrer system? If yes than a user that visits your forum through a link that contains "referrerid=XXX" will give referral credit to the owner of the referrerid when they register (where XXX is the userid of the referrer).
    I have set this to YES. But I can't find this anywhere in the forum?

    You will find it in your Admin CP under Users->Referrals. You can choose the time frame within you want to see the referrals.
    The user enters the name he was referred from if he fills in the registration.

        By giving a link to http://www.forums.com/index.php?referrerid=x , where x is your ID.

          Thanks.

          But where can I find this link in my forum, where users can view them?

            Nowhere.

            The "referrer system" is used for encouraging your mebmers to get new users to sign up at your forum.
            So, if they want, they can plugging your forums, and adding their id to the url. That way, when users will sign up thru that link, the referrer member will get credit for it.

              Ok, is there a way I can make it dynamic just like SitePointForum?

                How is this dynamic at SitePoint forums?

                      I don't know, but if you are a registered member in SP then goto the private message and you will see a link for referrer there.

                        I added this code into my UserCP Template..

                        Code:
                        Your referral link is: <a href="$bburl/index.php?referrerid=$bbuserinfo[userid]">$bburl/index.php?referrerid=$bbuserinfo[userid]</a>
                        Just muck around and find a good position for it, and your set.

                        AdminCP -- Templates -- User Control Panel Templates -- usercp

                            Another option is to put a link to the 'What are referrals?' section of your faq. This will automatically display the correct URL and referrerid for anyone viewing it.

                            Here's the link for these forums:

                            http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/misc....ge=2#referrals

                              I have to say that a link on the frontpage for someone to refer would be much better than a something in an FAQ... you have to know that some of the people who visit just aren't going to know what to do.
