This plugin is a fusion of Curverider´s Invitefriends Plugin and Invite Friends module from Openinviter API. You can, in the same form, invite your friends in the old way, typing one e-mail per line, or invite your friends using Openinviter API.

Features:

  • Invite messages uses the same layout from original invitefriends plugins.
  • Send invite codes in the message. (Allow mutual friendships in registration).
  • Multilanguage support. (English and Brazilian Portuguese in the package).
  • Only two files were changed. Future upgrades will be easier.

Installing:

Unzip the plugin in the "mod" folder, download the latest version of Openinviter API from http://openinviter.com/download.php and unzip in the \vendor\openinviter folder.

Configuring:

Disable the original Invitefriends plugin. Edit the file \vendor\openinviter\config.php like the example below. You will need a User Name and Private Key. You can get it registering in openinviter.com website.

Example:

<?php

$openinviter_settings=array(       

"username"=>"YourUserName", //Your login in the openinviter website.    

"private_key"=>"YourPrivateKey", //Your private key.       

"cookie_path"=>'/home/admin/tmp', //Path to store cookies and plugin cache.       

"message_body"=>" "       

"message_subject"=>" "       

"transport"=>"curl", //You can use wget too       

"local_debug"=>"on_error",       

"remote_debug"=>FALSE,       

"hosted"=>FALSE,       

"proxies"=>array(),       

"stats"=>TRUE,       

"plugins_cache_time"=>1800,       

"plugins_cache_file"=>"oi_plugins.php", //Plugin cache filename.       

"update_files"=>false,       

"stats_user"=>"", //Required to access the stats       

"stats_password"=>"" //Required to access the stats    );   

?>

Final notes:

  • This plugin was writen from scratch, merging a elgg plugin and a openinviter api example.
  • Only one file from original Invitefriends plugin was changed: \views\default\oi_invitefriends\form.php. I added the line "include($CONFIG->pluginspath . "oi_invitefriends/oi_invitefriends.php");". This will make future upgrades easier.
  • The code responsible to send invites through Openvintier API is a "elggfied" version of example.php, supllied in the package.
  • I will use in the plugin the version numbering from Openinviter API. So, this plugin starts with 1.9.4.0 (Openinviter 1.9.4, minor release 0)
  • I am using in a production enviroment, but I am a C# developer, not a PHP developer, so be careful. :)
  • If you like it, recommend it! Recommending, you don´t help me: you help the community, showing the best rated plugins and saving hours for new users.
