Never try for a customised payment gateway. I had a bad exprrience. In worst case you can try the advanced payment gateway addon. Or better , request/beg/threaten :) phpfox team to have major payment gatewyas ( including RazorPay ) in the core module :).

Right! I have spent a few lacs of hard-earned money on customizations and then gave up and installed a fresh copy of the core script. because customizations and core bugfixes/ feature updates complement each other in torturing the script owner.

Sorry, been away from the computer for a bit.

Friends Only Profile  NOT SURE WHERE THIS IS

Just type in the search field in the admincp... Friends Only Profile

If that doesn't bring you to it then go to Apps/Friend/Settings


For Friends Only (Feed)  NOT SURE WHERE THIS IS

Just type in the search field in the admincp... Friends Only

If that doesn't bring you to it then go to Apps/Feed/Settings

I know they are not the issue as you stated, but I thought I would tell you where they are anyways in case you need them someday.

OR hear me out - how about a follow system - like IG - someone follows me but I don't have to follow them back. SIMPLE

I agree, but if the site has that kind of follow system the way phpfox has the settings is still complicated. Without the friend system members who create pages and groups will not have the ability to assign admin because you can only add admin which are your friend on the site, and without the friend system it's impossible 🤦 phpfox needs to add more setting options to their product and save us all a headache. Sites these days are not using a friends system it is so outdated. If Facebook get rid of the friend feature only then will phpfox follow their lead and add it as a feature.

Hi guys.

What server provider are you using? 

Xservers, from 2008, but unmanaged. They have an "extra managed service", but it's expensive.

It seems to be kind of policy to deliver a core software where not many features do work correct and then 3rd party developer try to offer customization of apps which are actually already part of the core software, but just do not work fine...and they offer that for high prices ..

Hello  Shashank,

Regarding IM, you can follow our guidance in this article to set up IM server:

If you aren't comfortable with this setup by yourself, we'd like to propose 2 options:
1. Order our IM Setup service with $60 to install IM on your own server. We will need SSH root access to proceed with this work.
2. Use our IM hosting service, it costs $5/month. With IM hosting service, you don't have to pay for IM Setup Service as you will have server instance configured properly for IM.

Have a great day ahead and stay safe!
