  • Referral ID question

    How do these referral IDs work?

    from what I understand it should be

    something like:

    www.forumname.com/index.php?referralid=bgray

    but instead the only thing that works is a number instead of a username.

    Where can I get the number users are supposed to use?



    Thanks,

    Hover your mouse pointer over someone's 'profile' button, the one you see at the bottom of every post.
    You should see their userid in the status bar of your browser.
    Alternatively, click the profile button and you should see their userid in the address bar of your browser.
    Your userid here is '25750', mine is '16141'.

      I have a question. Is there a way to go into your options and add someone as a referral after having registered?

        Unfortunately you can not do it from either the UCP or ACP.
        If you have db access you can run a query in the form of:
        Code:
        UPDATE user SET referrerid = {somone else's userid} WHERE userid = {your userid}
