I've been playing around with OCPortal the last few days and am really impressed with the functionality - thanks for a good product!

My question is, is it possible to turn off the gift points system and get points only by contributing content such as forum posts? At this point in my site's development, I'm only interested in using points for ranks and I don't want people to be able to buy their way into higher ranks by trading gift points around. The tutorial suggested turning off view permissions to the points module and editing block options to not display them, but they're still displaying on profiles and the "your membership information" in the forum. Anyway, I don't mind members seeing how many points they have and how they're calculated, just don't want the gift points system.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

Hi,

I'd give the same advice (in fact probably I wrote it into the tutorial, lol). You said it still displays… and then you don't mind members seeing how many points they have – unless I'm not following right, that's a contradiction?

  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.

Is it possible to turn off/get rid of the gift points system though?

Not directly, no. Well, you could template it out of POINTS_SCREEN.tpl I suppose and remove any reference to it in the 'points' language file.
