  1. Sure but it just feels like this is not the best solution to a problem like this. The dashboard should have a separate timout to the rest of your scripts running in a location. I guess it's just my opinion though.
  2. Hello, One thing that frustrates me endlessly about WHMCS is the short timeout session when logged in to the dashboard. After a while I will do a search on the top right and then it tells me that my session has expired. Refreshing the page refreshes the session without having to login again but this can be a real PITA. After doing some research on google, other people have also complained about this and was just told to increase the php session timeout setting on the hosting account but then this will apply to ANY PHP script session running on my hosting account. If I'm not mistake, this specific php value is the session.gc_maxlifetime value. I do know I can set a dedicated php.ini in my whmcs directory ONLY but then any custom plugins that have automated tasks will have the same session timeout. Not that it is a big deal but I don't want to set a 3hour timeout on my php sessions just so that I don't have to refresh my whmcs so often. Is there really no way to implement a session timeout just for the whmcs dashboard only?
  3. Hi All, I have run in to an issue. I have a client who purchased SpamExperts as an addon to one of her hosting packages. She has since moved her account on to a VPS server which means the shared hosting package needs to be cancelled. The problem though is that she wants to keep SpamExperts addon as she uses the spam facility but this addon is linked to the hosting package which needs to be cancelled. I need to convert this addon to a separate product so that the client can continue to use the service without interruption. I have other clients who bought SpamExperts as a standalone product and not an addon so I know it is possible but I do not know how to convert an addon to a product. Any suggestions?
  4. Ok, I see now what you are saying. It's a little misleading. I clicked the "Release Notes" within WHMCS where it told me about the update and that's where it took me. I didn't bother to look at the heading at the top. thanks for the clarification.
  5. Exactly as the title says, I see that 8.1.1 has been released and I normally am quick to implement a maintenace release in order to ensure that all bugs and patches are implemented and relevant. Don't get me wrong, I love it when new features come along but according to Wikipedia, a maintenance release is a release of a product that does not add new features or content. See: Maintenance Release However, upon looking at the release notes for 8.1.1, I see the following new features are being implemented: New Twenty-One Client Area Theme Updated Templating System OAuth2 for Email Importing Automated User Deletion Disable Outgoing Mail Now I am aware that along with this release, there are a number of fixes as well but should the above be included in 8.2 perhaps? Just wondering here as some of the above new features seem to be pretty big features such as a whole new templating system and an entirely new theme. Your thoughts? Am I completely off the mark?
  6. Hello I am reselling VPS servers and these servers can either have cPanel or DirectAdmin as a panel choice. So I'm trying to create a welcome email that will display the cPanel URL details or the DirectAdmin url details based on whichever panel they chose during checkout. I have the following choices for the client: DirectAdmin Personal DirectAdmin Lite DirectAdmin Standard cPanel (5 Accounts) cPanel (30 Accounts) cPanel (50 Accounts) So if the client chooses any of the DirectAdmin options, then display the DirectAdmin content and the same applies for any cPanel option chosen to show the cPanel info. I have the following code: {if $service_config_options|strstr:'DirectAdmin'} DirectAdmin Access ============================= http://{$service_dedicated_ip}:2222/ {else} WHM Access ============================= http://{$service_dedicated_ip}:2087/ {/if} But everytime I try sending the email, I get this error: So I'm not sure what could be wrong with my syntax because it looks ok to me. Anyone have any ideas??
  7. TBH I gave up on this. I went the old route of making a complete copy os SIX and just performing a search and replace on all files to make sure the name was now the custom template. I then made all my changes as needed. I dont want to waste my time on this ridiculously bad coded Parent-Child relationship that WHMCS put together.
  8. Dude, my last post was like 2.5 hours before yours stating that I wasn't near my machine so I think that is a big no.
  9. I'm not near my machine now but it's not that the code in the custom.css file works or doesn't work, It's that the custom.css file is not loaded on all pages. At least on my side it doesn't always load.
  10. LOL! I tried that too...even though it SHOULD NEVER be necessary as !important is scoffed at in the CSS world but it didn't work either...
  11. Sorry if my post was confusing! So I am simply trying to make a child theme of the SIX theme. but it just doesn't work!
  12. I tried those things too but they didn't take effect either. I eventually gave up with the parent child and copied EVERYTHING over from six in to my custom template and then ran a search and replace and edited all the files to reflect my new template name. things are working but the parent child relationship is completely borked!
  13. Well I posted it in the dev community as this is related to development and I thought the 8.1 release was not related because since 6.1.x already the parent child relationship has already been implemented since then so I didn't think it was a "new" thing. Yes, I am very sure this happens. I showed screenshots 😉
  14. RANT INCOMING! I'm SO frustrated with this stupid template system! There HAS to be a stupid bug somewhere! I noticed that the common.tpl file checks first to see if there is an existing custom.css file and if there is, it will load it. BUUUTT it doesn't load it on every page EVEN IF the file does actually exists. It's SO FREAKING annoying! And yet it wont load when choosing your domain options but WILL load on the product selection?? What the hell??
