    Hi,

    I just bought AwoRewards and AwoCoupon to enable rewards for liking our site on facebook. But I did not find out how to setup AwoRewards and AwoCoupon to manage that.

    This is the task:

    If somebody likes us on facebook he shall get a reward/coupon that will grant him a € 2,- EUR discount on our online shop (hikashop).

    Can you provide me a step-by-step documentation/tutorial on how to set everything up so that it will work?

    Regards
    Michael

    Hello,

    First you setup the coupon template in AwoCoupon:
    http://awodev.com/documentation/awocoupon-pro/tutorials/how-create-coupon-template

    Then in AwoRewards, you create the rule:
    Rule Type: Like our facebook fanpage
    Username: Enter the fanpage vanity url
    Also enter marketing header/description
    Credit Type: Coupon - AwoCoupon
    Coupon Template: select the coupon template you created
    Profile: Select a proofilek, configurable in awocoupon->tools->profiles
    Save


    In aworewards->configutation->external api, make sure facebook is enabled and you have entered an application id

    ok, thank you.

    Last question: how can I make this function/reward available on my website? I mean, there should be some promotion text with link (like button) so that people click on it and go to facebook and like us and get the reward, shouldn't it?

    Yes, there should.

    There are 2 ways, either through a module or a promotional page:

    Hi,

    2 issues:

    1. your plugin AwoReward seems to disturb checkout process of hikashop:

    Error:
    1146 Table 'hoerschi_ff.laxv2_Hikashop_address' doesn't exist SQL=SELECT CONCAT(address_firstname," ",address_lastname) FROM laxv2_Hikashop_address WHERE address_id=2

    I am sure it is AwoReward, because when I disable all AwoReward plugins, checkout works fine without any issues.


    2. I installed the module and it looks fine except the box (iFrame) that opens when trying to place a like: it is way too small to show its content (in Safari Browser) and so nobody can like us. Also I am not sure what to set for "consumer key" in configuration? In Firefox it opens a new modal window, and asks me to login into facebook. After doing that, nothing happens. "Like us" seems not to work :(

    Could you check/fix the issue on our frontend? live-site: http://demo.hoerschiff.at/vorbestellung

    regards
    Michael

    Hello,

    1) Yes, the database is case sensitive, and AwoRewards is calling the table
    laxv2_Hikashop_address

    instead of:
    laxv2_hikashop_address

    To fix please edit this file:
    www/administrator/components/com_aworewards/helpers/estore/hikashop/rewardshandler.php, line 47 is this
    <?php
    $db
    ->setQuery('SELECT CONCAT(address_firstname," ",address_lastname) FROM #__Hikashop_address WHERE address_id='.(int)$order->order_billing_address_id);
    ?>


    Please change it to this
    <?php
    $db
    ->setQuery('SELECT CONCAT(address_firstname," ",address_lastname) FROM #__hikashop_address WHERE address_id='.(int)$order->order_billing_address_id);
    ?>




    For number 2, I believe the problem is the module is not checking to see if the user is logged in on not. So when clicking liked not logged in, it tries to give the reward, but cannot find the user details. You can see in the promotions link, the user is forced to log in first:
    index.php?option=com_aworewards&view=promotions

    I will send you a private message with an updated module.
