    Can admins "give" a gift away, and therefore bypass billing?

    @Rob just to be clear... it would be something like if an admin gift's a member an account upgrade... It'll be automatically be added, bypassing the payment gateway?

    Yes, but the alerts should still be generated telling the user they're upgraded via a gift. I guess admins (whoever has permission) should also have the option to gift anonymously.

    A few more lines of code will do the trick :D Going to push this feature on the next release :)

    Unfortunately I cannot install this, as it alters the xf_post table. It stalls my board out so long I have to terminate the processes. We have 15M+ posts. I guess I could close the board down sometime, and see how long it'd take to complete.... I killed the "alter table xf_post" process about 10 minutes after this screenshot. Hmm...

    looking for an answer, I found that all the other methods will also take time to execute, so I think putting the site on maintenance mode will be best.

    You can view any upgrade by changing the id on the following URL:
    http://example.com/account/upgrades/gift?upgrade={id}

    This will allow you to see any upgrade, even if it is not active for gifting. This can be a bit misleading (if someone links it) as you can pay for it via PayPal (and be charged), but you don't actually get the upgrade (as you shouldn't). So instead, you should obviously get the same response if you were to enter a non-existent id ("The requested page could not be found.").

    Hi this is an interesting add-on, can the "admin gifting" be automated?
    Also, I saw on a screenshot there's a tag on a thread to mark it as "gifted", but I don't see any button/function/call to action where people are encouraged to send this poster a gift. Like a "buy me a beer" kind of link. If you want people to use this opportunity, it needs some kind of advertising. Or did I miss it?

    Can you please elaborate on this? :)

    The button didn't show up because the screenshot was taken as logged in as the same user as the poster (you can't gift yourself ;) ), I've updated the screenshot with what other users will see: View attachment 94553

    Well like an automatic gift when a user triggers some action like a trophy, a promotion, or a purchase (an upgrade, that is)...

    Ahh thank you, now that's interesting :)
