Sitelok plugins for Mailchimp, PDF watermarking and Disqus

Mailchimp plugin

The plugin is free of charge for existing Sitelok users within their support period and requires Sitelok V3.0 or above. For more information and to download visit the Sitelok Plugins page.

PDF Watermark plugin
This plugin can dynamically watermark PDF files as they are downloaded or displayed in the browser. The watermark can contain data from the users account such as username or email address for example. This can help prevent sharing of documents or to ensure your site is credited. The plugin costs just $19.95 for existing Sitelok users within their support period and requires Sitelok V4.0 or above. For more information and to download the manual please visit the Sitelok Plugins page.

new login form

You can now adjust the default login form style from inside the Sitelok admin without using CSS. You can also
add a 'Register now' or 'Not Signed up' link as well if you wish.

edit default login style page

New login method added. Calling /slpw/login.php will display the login template and can the redirect the user
back to usergorup start page (or any other page if required).

If the 'No Access' URL is a login page there is an option to redirect the user after login back to the calling page
or to the usergroup start page.

Follow Up Email plugin for Sitleok

We have released the Sitelok Follow Up Email plugin. We know a lot of you have been waiting for this one!

The Follow Up Email plugin can automatically send a sequence of emails to users after they join usergroups (like an auto responder service). So for example you could set it up so that when users join the SILVER usergroup they are sent a welcome message on day 1, a news email 7 days later and then an upgrade to GOLD offer 30 days after that. You can setup any number of emails in the sequence for each user group as well as a global sequence that is sent to all users. You can also set emails so that they are only sent out if a user is or is not a member of another group. So for the upgrade to GOLD message in our example we could choose to only send that if the user has not already upgraded to GOLD.

The plugin costs just $19.95 for existing Sitelok users within their support period and requires Sitelok V3.0 or above. For more information and to download the manual please visit the Sitelok

Using Sitelok with web analytics

A number of web analytics services allow you to set the ID of the visitor if known, Sitelok supports this which is great as you can look through your visitor data and see exactly who is viewing what. We have tested this with both Clicky and Visistat and it works well. What's more is that Sitelok download links automatically show up in Clicky as well showing when users download certain files.

getclickylogo

To setup ID logging add the following line (the part in blue) to your Clicky snippet.

<?php if ($slusername!="") echo "<script type=\"text/javascript\"> var clicky_custom_session = { username: '$slusername' }; </script>"; ?>;
<script src="http://static.getclicky.com/xxxxxx.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
<noscript><p><img alt="Clicky" src="http://static.getclicky.com/xxxxxx-db6.gif" /></p></noscript>


vslogo

To setup ID logging add the following part (in blue) to your Visistat snippet.

<script type="text/javascript">var DID=31190;</script>
<script type="text/javascript">var DID=xxxxxx;
var MyID=<?php echo $slusername; ?>;</script>
<script src="http://sniff.visistat.com/sniff.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

Sitelok V2.10 released

We have just released Sitelok V2.10. As well as a few bug fixes there are two new features.

Search engine access
We have added an option to allow search engines to access an index secured pages. You can define which group or groups the search engine robot will have access to. You can define this setting globally or on a page by page basis if required. Although we think that most sites will still want to block search engine access to their protected pages (this is the default) we have had a number of requests lately for this feature.

One click MySQL backup
Although most hosting control panels provide MySQL backup features we decided to add a simple one click backup to the Sitelok control panel to make this as painless as possible. The backup downloads a standard SQL file (zipped up) which contains all the data required to recreate all tables and data. The SQL file can be restored using most mysql managers (such as phpmyadmin).
