[SOLVED] Not understand: "7.3.1.5 Settings icon à Global tab à Automation settings frame"

2 months 3 weeks ago - 2 months 3 weeks ago #304710 by lucablue
Hi,
I'm reading the CBSubs manual 4.1 and I'm not understanding the paragraph in object.

I don't know which options I need to use.

I'd like that any user can buy my subscription, without any auto-renew, and this subscription is valid for a period of 365 day since he pays, just this.

So how I need to configure:
  • Mass expire subscriptions method

  • Automated payments

Thank you

You'd just create a new subscription plan and set its duration to 1 year. Plans default to single payments only.

So how I need to configure:
Mass expire subscriptions method

Automated payments

Configuring automated payments contradicts what you've just said above so I'm unsure what you're needing at this point. Mass expiration method depends on how you want to expire users. You can have subscription expiration's trigger from backend access, frontend access, or a CRON task. My recommendation is set "Mass expire subscriptions method" to "Cron task and admin access (100 max/page) " then setup a CRON task to run a wget call on "Url of cron task".

As explained in my previous reply just create a subscription with a 1 year duration. That's all you'll need to do to have a subscription that lasts for 365 days and does not auto renew.

Can you explain, also, with an example what are needed the Automation setinngs frame? To do what?

Set it to use CRON then configure a CRON Task at your webhost to do a wget call to the URL supplied in CBSubs > Settings > Global otherwise leave it to trigger expirations on backend access and be sure to visit backend once a day to trigger expirations (can also be configured to trigger on frontend access). See the below for examples on how to call that URL from CRON. If you've no experience with CRON at all then contact your host as they may be able to help you.

Ok,
now I've understood what's needed the cron function.
Thank you.
