E-cards project

E-cards project: Other work in progress... will be great when it works.

 

JE Greeting Cards modifications and integration with com_alphauserpoints.

 

Need some sample cards to start off...

JE Greeting click here Cards/ Com_AlphaUserPoints solution

 

1, Ability to Define number of columns and rows for the "Events" in admin...

 

(number of items are controlled in line 106 in /models/events.php [

{
        $app    = JFactory::getApplication();
        $config = $app->getParams();
        $limit = $config->get('cartegory_limit');

        if( trim($limit == '') ){
            $limit= 10;
        }

         return (int)$limit;
    }


2, E-card events Category module (to display categories user position left/right) perhaps also with expandable subcategory /05/03/2012/ created a menu item with sub menus poining to each event, now possitioned user left. Nice to show (number of items) per event
3, option- Search only in the e- Cards i.e.  card element only search function
4, option- Display featured on "Events" landing page, for example when it is Halloween this would then be the featured card event set.
5, Just another idea but perhaps css template or set to auto/selection for the season?
6, allow admin to define "Event" landing page features, i.e. number of cards to display per page, display featured event cards only etc
7, hide/show sub categories - needs more thought
8, allow admin to select a Watermark for all images.
9,  Event Category image size must be set to proportional resize.
10, Light box type mouse over thumbnail to enlarge image.
11, Remove price only display "token" if card is more than 1 token to send for use via integration to Com_AlphaUserPoints rules or similar.

Flash or other card creation object:

12, Selectable background theme i.e. Sustainable planet...Halloween, Mothers day etc..
13, issue with current message box when editing the right text place it needs to be movable or it must be in front of the "preview" / "download" buttons.
14, add save for later option to Preview page.
15, add accept and send option to preview.
16, auto save and view, delete saved cards.
17, add email addresses from address book, csv, or delimiter separated email address entry box.
18, Facebook integration
19, admin to set the max allowed to send option at one time option or send control.
20, enhanced email send feature (send queue or schedule mail out feature)
21, expand e-card to include e-invites
21, all cards to have a link back to sustainable planet for delivery acknowledgement
22, recipients acknowledgement landing page nice invite to join Sustainable Planet or just send a thank you/confirmation acceptance to the sender.

 

Others items for clarification :

Events = All Categories i.e. Birthday, Christmas, Valentines, Mothers Day
Events Sub Categories: Humour, Traditional, Hand Made, Animated etc
Event =  One Category i.e Birthday
Event Sub Categories: Humour, Traditional, Hand Made, Animated etc

Cost value $ is equal to x number of tokens, a token last for one year.

More on the integration with Com_AlphaUserPoints or similar:

Member is granted say for example 5 tokens for joining Sustainable Planet

Member token rules... i.e. can gain x number of tokens by
    (i) a friend joining from the link on a card > gain 5 tokens
    (ii) refer a friend option gain 5 tokens on sign up
    (iii) admin assigned/granted token points
    (iv) Like us on Facebook gain 5 tokens

thought: Members can upload and donate their own cards with their own logo which can be displayed alongside ours on the back of the card.

Token expiry reminder email.

Better if the card text is visible as it is being written on the card, multiple font/colour glitter option  selections.

Ability to handle animated cards with definable messages.

Drop down list of card backs with sustainable planet logo and little ditty from article or tip section.

Option to send a the card via a site LINk or email. Recipient must be able to reply to each card sent by reply or from link and is offered signup as above.
