Good Afternoon Everyone,,
The first major section of the update is complete. All of the website advertising is now completely integrated with the upgade section of the script. Here's how it works.
YOu choose to purchase an Ad Buy, on the form you will see Number of shares to purchase, payment method, Ad Tititle, Ad URL, Ad Language and the preview button.
Once you enter the information you will be given a confirmation page and a button which will whisk you off to E-Gold to make your payment, once completed you'll be returned to the thank you page where we'll do just that and remind you that you need to confirm your Ad URL and give you a button to do so.
In the background e-gold will post back your purchase information, and all associated Ad Buy information ie: name, url, lang, and credits for this ad to the appropriate table in the DB.
We've run about 50 tests and it's worked perfectly everytime without fail, so that's great.
The next step is to begin working on the surfbar, and once that's complete we'll relaunch. The questionnaire will come later as I don't think that's necessary to get started.
Just to clarify - you answer one 5 question questionnaire at the END of your surfing for the day - not one after each website you look at.
If I can get the surfbar completed today we'll re-launch at Midnight. Understand this will take some serious coding on my part as I have to re-write the surfbar from another piece of software to fit into our program. Our programmer that we were hiring decided to take a pass when all the fun began on Black Thursday so I have to write it all myself.
I closed the comments on the previous thread as it was starting to get a little silly over there.
