    What's new with CLOUD Addons etc ?
    Hey all

    I have a few active socialengine clouds, which helps to reduce the cost of building the site, and all the customisation needed. However, I find there's not enough change and I want to keep adding value to my growing audience.

    What's in the plan for this year in terms of themes or other widgets and services ?  There seems to be nothing added since December, and only one widget CometChat.

    Request an Invite response
    Hi there

    If someone requests an invite, do they get an email automatically sent back to them prior to the invite being accepted ? If not, is there a way to do that. I want to use PAYPAL subscription to get people to pay a subscription prior to joining and some people are already REQUEST INVITE instead of SUBSCRIBING first. So if the REQUEST INVITE, and receive an email saying they need to subscribe first, then I would have a better hit rate.  Alternative is to remove the REQUEST INVITE button I guess or linking that button to the PAYPAL subscription.

    Different types of members
    I read somewhere that you can have different types of members, but I can only find MODERATORS and ADMIN. I'm looking for a way to give some members more access than others (.e.g Premium can post, Standard can only view). Is there a way ?  (CLOUD)

      seTweaks SE PHP has different profile types with different access levels.

      Stepan Mazurov no, once you're a member you can only be promoted to moderator which will give you limited access to help with moderation or an admin which will have full backend access.

      Douglas McFarlane Yeah, thanks. This is where my misunderstanding came from.

      Member roles

      Create different titles, labels or ranks for your members. Reward key members with more visibility and responsibility.

    Any CLOUD Widgets, features, subscriptions
    Hi all

    I've seen lots of THEMES for SocialEngine CLOUD, and plenty of widgets for the PHP version, but are there any 'widgets' of any sort out there for CLOUD ?  I've just gone subscription based using a PAYPAL button and manually sending out invites, to those who subscribe, but sure there's a better way ?  What about POLLS ?  I'm hoping that it's not all a case of IFRAMES etc ?

      Douglas McFarlane Thanks for replies. Membership fees is super, I'd be pleased to discuss my experience with getting my first lot of subscribers via the Paypal route and keen to know when you'll be planning to announce the new code.

      I've used Iframes and it's not great, but embedding Javascript might be the way forward. I'll focus on those.

      Stepan Mazurov Hey Douglas, iframes or javascript is your best option. There is plenty of "native" ways to embed javascript though, so it depends on the provider of the feature you're requesting.

      Having membership fees is something we're looking at adding internally.

      seTweaks There are no 3rd party plugins for SE Cloud, only a handful of themes. SE Cloud is not as extendable as SE PHP.
