Enabling e-gifts in phpFox

This article will show you how to enable e-gifts in your phpFox based website.

The e-gift module in phpFox allows your members to send gifts with their messages to other members. You can set this up so that these gifts can only be sent on birthdays, or on an everyday basis. You can also set that these gifts are free, or cost money to send.

To setup the e-gifts you first need to create Categories, in your admincp select Modules > Egift > Manage Categories.


On the Manage Categories page, the key field to pay attention to is the Schedule Availability field. This is the field that will either allow your gifts in this category to be available only on birthdays or at any time, within the scheduled availability time frame.

To set the category to be available only for birthdays, select NO for Schedule Availability. Type in the name you want to call this category, and select Add Category.


To set the category to be available at any time, within the scheduled availability time frame, select YES for Schedule Availability. Type in the name you want the category to be, and the time frame that you want the category to be available. When done, click Add Category.


Next you will need to create your e-gifts! Select Add E-Gifts in the left column. On the E-Gift page, set a title for the gift, upload your gift image, select which category the Gift belongs to, and set a price for the e-Gift (if you want it to be free, you will need to leave the price at $0) When done, select Add E-gift.


Congratulations! You can now create e-Gifts in your phpFox website
