Hi All,

1. We are at present using version 7.58 UBB and going to update to the latest version 7.60 and have a question about introducing fee based registration.

2. Is it possible to have a fee-based registration process for UBB 7.60.

3. At present we allow guest to be able to view and read all post but not allowed to post or download files unless they are registered.

4. In some areas we have a subscription fee based (where they pay and are able to download information in those areas).

5. We are looking to simplify this so that all registered users can download all information from all forums once they register and pay a small fee (using the same format for subscriptions via PayPal but having it for all forums on the site when they register) .

I have read this request on the UBB forum before but it appears that no one has made it possible to date.

Any assistance or advise would be appreciated.

The process is quite simple:
1) setup your subscription levels and enter your payment details (checks/money order/paypal).
2) make all your forums require a certain base access level (these will be for your paid subscribers)
3) make a new forum which guests and "non paid members" can browse.
4) put a sticky in that forum with the instructions and links to all the items you want those unpaid users to download/view.

register a new account, and test.

EDIT: I believe this setup is working quite well for these guys
They've been around since at least 2006

Thanks for the heads up on how to apply the adjustment. I found it extremely helpful.
