      * DISCLAIMER *
      Laws about how raffles should be handled vary from location to location. Be sure to check with local authorities and to comply with any laws that may apply to you. The author of this add-on can not be held responsible if the use of this add-on results in any violation of local laws.
      By downloading this add-on, you agree to abide by local laws and to hold the author of this add-on harmless for any damages that may occurr from the use of this add-on.

      NOTE: Except for bug fixes, this mod is no longer being updated.

      1) Upload the contents of the 'upload' folder to your forum's root.
      (If your forum's location is, the root is /forums/)

      2) Import the product XML file (product-raffles.xml) into the Product Manager in AdminCP.

      3) If you want to view raffles on your site while the raffle system is turned off, go to AdminCP -> Usergroups -> Administrator Permissions select yourself and set "Can Admin Raffles" to 'Yes'.

      4) Anyone you want to be able to administer raffles on your site must also have Administrator Permissions and have "Can Admin Raffles" set to 'Yes' or they will not be able to administer raffles.

      5) Take some time to set the options in Raffle Settings.

      6) Set up a raffle.

      1) Upload the contents of the 'upload' folder to your forum's root.
      (If your forum's location is, the root is /forums/)

      2) Import the product XML file (product-raffles.xml) into the Product Manager in AdminCP and be sure 'Allow Overwrite' is set to 'Yes'.

      3) If you are already using vBCredits you will need to go into Raffle Settings and set 'Use vBCredits' to 'Yes' and set 'vBCredits Currency' to the currency you are using. If you are using any other credit system, you will need to provide the information on what table, field and userid field are used by that credit system.

      The whole system is pretty self explanatory, but there are a few things to keep in mind...

      1) A default raffle image is supplied with the add-on. You must always supply an image for your raffles. You may change the default image if you like.

      2) The entry period for raffles always end at 12:00am (midnight) on the day the raffle is to be drawn. (ie: Draw date is set 12/21/2011.. members can enter through 12/20/2011, the moment the date changes to 12/21/2011 no more entries are possible)

      3) The scheduled task to draw the raffles is set to take place at 10:00am the day the raffle is to be drawn. You may change this by going to AdminCP->Scheduled Tasks->Scheduled Task Manager, find "Draw raffles", click on Edit and change the time of the draw to what you want it to be.

      4) There are replacement variables used in several phrases. These are what the variables are:

      raffle_agree: {1} = Forum name
      raffle_eligible: {1} = Forum name {2} = Raffle name
      raffle_message_body: {1} = Raffle name {2} = Draw date
      raffle_message_close: {1} = Raffle admin name {2} = Phrase (raffle_admin_title)
      raffle_message_salute: {1} = Winner name
      raffle_recent: {1} = Time remaining before a user can enter again
      raffle_winner_multi: {1} = Winner names for multiple raffle winners {2} = Raffle name
      raffle_winner_one: {1} = Winner name for single raffle winner {2} = Raffle name

      5) When adding a custom user profile field for this add-on, be sure to 'Private Field' is set to 'Yes' and 'Field Searchable on Member List' is set to 'No'.

      6) If you don't want to have Raffles in the community menu, you can use a forum link to raffles.php.


      Bug fixes will always be released here first.
      Release on will take place within one week after release here.
