Starting to worry about seeing this product update :P No offense.

 

None taken, I realize it doesn't inspire confidence with some other major mods being abandoned by there developers. I'll just point out that I've been working on the Donation Tracker for nearly 4 years now and I definitely plan on continuing to support it.

 

I have had some real life distractions that take me away from modding, I won't bore people with the details but just say that after driving 12 hours from midnight to midday, I don't have much free time left over. But I'll see about setting Wednesday aside just for Donation Tracker updates, starting this Wednesday. Also if need be, I'll finish the most popular new features first and then issue another upgrade after like how IPS did IPB3.0 / 3.1 and now 3.2.

First Wednesday update, got a few hours today free and got the member rewards area started (admin side). This is the area that will allow you to setup donation price points and rewards members based on donations amounts. More details on this previous post here.

Second Wednesday update - Didn't get a chance to post this last night but it should still be Wednesday somewhere in the world. :tongue: Still working on the back-end code for the member rewards, nothing really screenshot worthy yet.

Nice progress so far Michael. Have you looked into the subscriptions or adding subtractions and having a ending money pool? :D

More infomation about those can be found here

 

The basis of this idea is.

1) Tracker keeps track of Subscriptions.

2) Subscriptions are automatically added to the Monthly Goal

3) Have A Clan Balance System. Each Donation Adds to it, While a admin can add a Subtraction Manually.

Third Wednesday Update: Worked on the admin side of the Donation Tracker today, optimized a fair bit of the code. I'll also be working some more during the weekend, Saturday my time.

I haven't started work on the subscriptions part yet. Support for payment gateways is in place so I may need to work on a Paypal (subscriptions) gateway separately from Donation Tracker v3. Like IP.Subscriptions current Paypal gateway that supports Paypal's inbuilt subscription features.

I had a little free time on Sunday as well, so I'll update what I did over the weekend. Working on finishing the hooks, completed the top donors and latest donations hooks. Also starting to work on the Topic View and Profile View hooks. As I alluded above, I'm going to have to put some features aside for the next version so I can get this completed sooner in preparation for IPB 3.2.x. As this point, the most likely choice is the subscriptions feature, I will still try to include some type of reminder, so members can choice to be reminded to donate in a week, month etc...

I saw on Facebook that you were working on an upgrade for the Donation Tracker. I was wondering what exactly you were looking to do. Cause I have some questions about it, but don't want to ask first if you are going to answer some of my questions by posting what's going on in the update.

 

 

Thanks for your help!

It has been delayed but I'm working regularly on the Donation Tracker now and expect a solid beta/RC by the end of this month. In terms of features, I've pretty much have a finalized list.

The update will work with IPB 3.1 or only IPB 3.2

 

It would be nice with both

Yes both versions will be supported. Depending on the take up rate of IPB 3.2, going forward the IPB 3.2 version is likely to receive additional features later. This is more and more unlikely, going forward I will most probably have an IPB 3.2 release only.

Finishing off the member rewards area now. I've moved the points and member group promotions to here as well. So you'll be able to give out points and group promotions based on the donation amount. And also further to that, award a certain amount of points or group upgrade for a certain amount of days based on the dollar amount or per donation. E.G You have a $0-$10 donation range where you upgrade a members group for 30 days. For the $10.01-$25 donation range you can upgrade a members group 5 days for every dollar donated. (A donation of $15 would upgrade their group for 75 days)

Not exact date yet but put it this way, I'm trying my hardest to get this out before IPB 3.2 goes final. I want to get a solid/stable Donation Tracker for IPB 3.1.

 

 

Will this support payments from other gateways like alertpay?

 

You can add additional payment gateways, only Paypal will be included by default however. If there is documentation available from alertpay, I can look at support it.

As development is now finished I'll close this topic. I'm now beta testing and expect a final release soon, for those available for beta testing, please register your interest via PM. There are still a few major features I wanted to add but was unable to this version. As mentioned before I will be revisiting these in Donation Tracker v3.1 in the near future once IPB 3.2 is out of the way.
