Hi guys,

I am really new to ocPortal - just found it 2 weeks ago and amazed with how much you can do here.
But sometimes it's just very hard to find what I want in the Admin Zone or even in different files or database tables.

My need here is to offer a life-long subscription.
I think 100 years would do.
Right now the default max length is 5 years.
I have been struggling for a few days and cannot find this parameter anywhere.

Thanks in advance.

Please go ahead and list any little usability issues you find or need for additional documentation, and it can be considered for possible future development.

In this case, the 5 year maximum comes from PayPal's limits. A subscription really is a subscription, not a one-off purchase, and IIRC PayPal doesn't allow more than a 5 year one.

We could adjust ocPortal to allow usergroup subscriptions to be handled as one-off payments instead. I've added that to the tracker (0001017: Support for lifetime usergroup subscriptions - ocPortal feature tracker).

Was I helpful?
  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • 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.
