      It's Christmas and I'm feeling generous so here's a free add-on. Beside that, it's a very short simple add-on.

      This add-on for vBulletin Raffles allows different usergroups to have different entry limits for each raffle.

      It comes as a result of a request from a forum that has over 170,000 members and has run raffles with over 60,000 entries (which is a record for the raffle system so far as I know).

      This add-on is designed for use with vBulletin Raffles vB4.x version 1.3.3 or higher.
      It WILL NOT work with earlier versions of vBulletin Raffles.


      * INSTALLATION *
      -----------------------
      1) Import the product XML file (product-raffleentries.xml) into the Product Manager in AdminCP.


      * USING THIS ADD-ON *
      ---------------------------
      1) Go to AdminCP->Raffles->Edit Raffles (or Add New Raffle) and you will find there is now a new selection, Usergroup Entry Limits.

      2) To give different usergroups different entry limits, enter the usergroup and the number of entries allowed for that group with a pipe symbol between them (example: 2|100 would allow usergroup 2, 100 entries).
      You can enter more than one usergroup if you like, just separate the entries with a comma (example: 2|100,6|10).
      Any usergroup not entered will get the number of entries set in Maximum User Entries Permitted.
      The number of entries for a usergroup will show in the Entries per User display of the Raffle Detail page. So, each member of a usergroup will see the proper number there.

      3) Save the raffle.

    Absolutely no problem.

    Even though I don't post very much, I enjoy your site.

    Besides, a couple of years ago Digiblur helped me out a little with a programming project so this just pays that back to some extent.

    Does this work with additional usergroups too?

    EX:
    Registered members can have 1 ticket
    Level 2 members can have 2 tickets.

    A user has a primary usergroup of Registered Member and a Secondary usergroup of Level 2. How many entries will they have? 3?

    It does work with additional groups, but the entries are not cumulative.

    The highest usergroup ID the member has is used for the number of entries given.

    Ok. You mean the usergroup that has the highest number of entries allowed is used right?

    No, I mean the highest usergroup ID.

    IE: If a member has a usergroup of 2 and an additional group of 10, the entries for usergroup 10 will be used.

    I've been limiting our entries for different classes of members from month to month. This is a much better way of doing it, thanks for writing and releasing it.
