    ... and that's it from me for 2018 - i'm taking a break from here for Christmas & New Year! 🎄 i'm thus avoiding both the 7.7 beta releases and the possibility of Chris enabling the Christmas lights and animated snow effect again. ❄️ with the v7.7 betas, there should be more than the usual minimal WHMCS staff floating around this place to answer the threads - so take advantage of them being around, because once the beta testing is over, they'll disappear back into the ether as usual! 🙄 if you want to ensure that I look at a particular thread on my return, just mention me with @brian! and i'll get a notification. I expect to be back here around the second week of January 2019... enjoy yourselves everyone! P.S - for anyone yet to have paid what they owe me, the PayPal account and bank don't close over the festive period, so I will look forward to receiving payments - I won't forget if you don't pay!

    That's why I hate WYSIWYG editors. They copy text including HTML and leave a lot of unnecessary and invisible tags. You have to options: Learn to use Edit HTML Source it's an icon in the editor Dont' paste text directly into TinyMCE. First paste it txt file then ctrl+c and ctrl+v in TinyMCE. This way you are not pasting HTML tags

    you could do that if you had to - for example, a straight copy&paste of your homepage code, plus a link to your hosting.css stylesheet, into products.tpl will give you this... if you were only ever going to have one product group, with one currency, you could get away with doing that as a starting point... though ideally, you should take the code apart; convert it to work in a foreach loop and then start pulling the required information (name, prices, description etc) from the existing variables already available to that page... you also shouldn't need to link to hosting.css as it's messing up the navbar and who knows what else, so just take the relevant css for these pricing panels and add it to custom.css another alternative might be to use one of the Comparison templates (Supreme, Premium or Pure) as a starting point for your conversion - but your existing pricing code is reasonably well laid out, so you should be able to convert it directly.

    @wp4all Considering that the vast majority of backdoors have been crafted to hack the most popular CMS (eg. Wordpress, Joomla, Drupal...), why should you take this unnecessary risk? I'm not saying that Wordpress sucks regarding security but lamers focus their efforts in hacking the most used and popular system so that they can get more in return. Not to mention that people tend to update their crucial platforms like WHMCS as frequently as possible. Wordpress is not crucial therefore people are more willing to skip updates because who cares? Losing news, blog posts is not a big deal. That said, since Wordpress installations are intrinsically less secure, what's the point of making your WHMCS bullet-proof when lamers can simply enter from Wordpress skipping all your security measures?

    But he's right. Having WP and WHMCS on the same hosting package is like shooting yourself in the foot. Here we're not talking about securing WP and WHMCS individually. The question is that if someone manages to upload a backdoor in WP, he can easily navigate to your WHMCS, get your database, domains, servers etc. Here is why you should keep systems separated. This way if someone cracks your WP he can destroy your WP but not WHMCS.

    I was wondering how is everyone handling the lack of hosting renewal notices in WHMCS (there's a 5-yr-old feature request for it) and the lack of a "renew hosting" button. I have a third-party module that handles this but it's been extremely buggy over the years. There must be some other solution. Or do you people simply accept that WHMCS will send an invoice with a big red "Unpaid" text on it, with no further explanation and that's the hosting renewal notice? How do you handle when a customer wants to renew in advance? Or a change in billing cycle, from monthly to yearly for instance? I wonder if I could create a button in the client area that opened a ticket automatically for these requests. It's really weird that a hosting automation platform has a ton of renewal notices and options for domain renewals, and nothing for hosting renewals.

    not easily because you only get to the gateway choice stage at checkout - by which time, you've already added all your products to the cart. this wouldn't be achievable via any admin configuration, it would likely require the skills of a developer to write a custom solution - you could post a thread in Service Offers & Requests and any interested developers would reply, or you could get one of the moderators to move this thread there (by reporting the post of via Community Assistance).

    Hello WHMCS, I came across a possible bug. Users that accepted a quote don't get an automated invoice related to the quote. Inside their email (Quote #6... Accepted) they get : There seems to be no invoice generation action. I'm running the latest stable release of WHMCS. Anyone else having this issue?

    I started a thread in the developer corner when it should be here. Admins please feel free to delete my other post. Hi I need help to fix a problem with the workflow of the order process that is a serious problem. I'm happy to pay for a developer to do this work for me. Here's the problem... On the latest version of the six template, (comparison order form) VAT is calculated before checkout, but the VAT calculation is optional and is open to abuse by the customer. In fact, it's an invitation to the customer to commit VAT fraud, either on purpose or accidentally. The "estimate taxes" option is a small tab next to the tab where you can add a discount code. Here are the problems... 1. Most customers won't even see this, or bother to use it. This will set the VAT rate incorrectly. 2. Entering the country and state are optional at this stage in the order process, but this is the point where VAT is calculated, so it's vital that this info be collected here. 3. The customer can change their country at the next stage in the process, after they have "estimated taxes", but changing the country at this stage doesn't change the VAT rate - so they can easily influence the price. The form invites them to choose any country they like for the tax rate, or not to bother, then set their country correctly so as to avoid suspicion. This will result in deliberate avoidance of the correct VAT and people paying the wrong amount just because they didn't notice the tab, or didn't understand it. WHMCS seems to think that paying the correct VAT rate should be optional, and that collecting accurate info from the customer during the order process is not important. Calculating the correct taxes is important, it's not an afterthought. What needs to be done? I have two possible suggestions... It would be preferable for the VAT to be calculated at the final stage, just like every other shopping cart system. Doing this would require the summary box on the right not to include the VAT calculation until checkout, so if this is not too difficult to do, an additional stage needs to be added into the process. Here's my first suggestion which is my preferred solution... 1. Remove the "Estimate Taxes" tab. 2. Remove the VAT calculation from the summary box until the final stage, so a sub total is only shown until they submit their address info. 3. Separate the final checkout process into two stages, entering and submitting info, then finally choosing a payment type and getting a correct summary - so that once the customer has entered their details, they have to submit and go to choose payment options, which will be on a final checkout page. To elaborate on point three, what I mean is that you have to submit the country and state before tax can be calculated - so moving the payment options to a final stage allows you to submit that data - and allows for the summary box to contain the VAT calculation at the last stage. Then the final page will just contain the payment options and the final summary box, terms and conditions checkbox. essentially, you're chopping the checkout in half and shoving the last section onto a new final step. This removes the need for a specific "estimate taxes" option, which is a stupid idea anyway. My second suggestion for a quick fix would be to keep the workflow the way it is currently, but.... 1. Remove the "Estimate Taxes" tab and instead add a section below for the customer to provide their country and state, so it is more prominent on the page. It must be mandatory with validation to stop them continuing unless that info has been entered. 2. When the customer enters their full address details later, they must not be able to change the country or state at this stage. Sure they can go back to the previous stage and change it, but they shouldn't be allowed to enter conflicting details. It is a fundamentally basic requirement that VAT is calculated on orders, but the way this currently works is just open to so much accidental or deliberate abuse. If I'd known it worked this way I wouldn't have upgraded to version 7. Now that I have, I need a fix for this problem as soon as possible -so if you can take this on, or you have any questions please let me know. Many thanks.

    I noticed the same thing. The registrations started about 2 weeks ago. The default captcha was enabled, but it seems that's no good enough to stop automated scripts. To try to help that, I've enabled Google reCaptcha. Now I'm waiting to see if it that will help.

    this could be a couple of things depending upon where you're seeing the monthly price. one checkbox you may want to look at is... Setup -> General Settings -> Ordering Tab -> untick "Monthly Pricing Breakdown"

    Is it possible to move an invoice from one account to another? We have a client who used to run a web-host business. They have now given that up, but rather than disappear, they have tried to minimise any impact on their former customers by creating separate accounts for themin WHMCS. The idea is they can move domains and services into those separate accounts and the customers can administer them on their own. What I can't see is how to move Invoice nnnnnn from Johns account into Janes account. Is this possible? Trevor

    The following is directed at no one in particular, even though I quoted the above: [personal opinion] If you're in business and you don't know how to do something you either learn, hire someone to do so, or make do with what you have. I believe that the entire hosting/design industry would be better served if it were harder to get started, making it more of an investment in learning how to operate instead of simply buying a cheap reseller account, a "point and click" client manager (though WHMCS is much appreciated compared to previous products) and selling $1/month unlimited accounts they probably don't know how to support and repair either. If a "host" won't invest in learning how to manipulate the products he uses to do what he wants without being able to simply click buttons on and off, he needs to either conform to what's given or choose another occupation. [/personal opinion] Editing and altering WHMCS is quite simple compared to other products I've used such as M-bill and A-Pilot (plus several others). Even though it's mostly encoded, the templates are straightforward, variables are named intuitively and templates are as well. There is decent documentation, and quite a few selfless people on this forum that offer assistance to those that aren't as adept at edits. In addition to that, the folks behind the product are responsive and available to help with nearly anything that you can't figure out. What seems to be the issue here, that it's not spoon fed and one click fixes? See above.
