Payment Processing Script

Yioop software supports keyword advertising and supports charging credits to access groups. These can be enabled under the root account using the Server Settings activity. To create ads, advertisers purchase ad credits, and then use those credits to bid on keywords. When a user creates a group they can choose to charge a certain number of credits to join the group. By default, Yioop does not come with any payment processing mechanism for the purchase of credits, and so credits are essentially free. A script to enable purchasing credits for dollars on a credit card in Yioop 3.1.0 or higher using is a available from Seekquarry LLC for a fee of $30 at the link below:

The Yioop Coding Guidelines explain the form your code should be in when making a patch as well as how to create patches. You can create/update an issue in the Yioop issue tracker describing what your patch solves and upload your patch. To contribute localizations, you can use the GUI interface in your own copy of Yioop to enter in your localizations. Next locate in the locale folder of your Yioop work directory the locale tag of the language you added translations for. Within this folder is a configure.ini file, just make an issue in the issue tracker and upload this file there.
