Plugin Description: This happens to be one of my favorite plugins to use. It allows a simpler method to invite people to your forums.

Invite form with captcha
Referral link for easy copy and paste
A toplist page to show top referring members
SQL and XSS preventive measures for higher security
Installs with no manual template edits
Language Compatible
Link in Usercp to "Refer a Member" inside miscellaneous navigation area


1. Upload the file from the zip


2. Login to your admincp and ACTIVATE the plugin (Easy Refer) in the plugin manager.

3. You will see a new setting under "User Registration and Profile Options" for "Show Referrals" which allows you to prevent members from seeing other members referrals.

4.(optional) Edit your header template and add an Invite or Refer link to refer.php.


I guess that's it. Enjoy.

Oh and feel free to use the Invite image I have on this site. It's from Linspire Clear and it's free to use.

Good icon. But if anyone's looking for consistency with the rest of MyBB's icons, this will work well, from FAMFAMFAM's Silk set (almost every icon MyBB uses is from this set):

Great release! It would work best if it is combined with MYPS too, so as each member has a referral to the forums, they earn MYPS points too.

RE: Easy Refer 2.0 - labrocca - Sep 22, 2008

MYPS will have a "per referral" setting in the next release.

RE: Easy Refer 2.0 - DAMINK - Sep 23, 2008

The MYPS integration will be great. Give added incentive for members to get referrals.
Cant wait to see MYPS evolve. By that i mean modules integrated.
Must have plugin i would say.

RE: Easy Refer 2.0 - LaptopFreak - Sep 23, 2008

Then thats great. Good luck in improving ^^

What about a version like on Facebook where you can refer a load of people from peoples hotmail, gmail etc?

RE: Easy Refer 2.0 - MattR - Sep 28, 2008
