    Hi Seyi,

    I have created a coupon template with a Start Date and have selected it in my AWORewards rule. The rule has Coupon Expiration set to 30 days.

    In the Profile email I have the following: The coupon is valid until {coupon_expiration}

    However when the email goes out the tag {coupon_expiration} is not populated ?

    Hope you can advise,

    regards

    Hello,

    Just tested this on a registration rule using the latest of both AwoCoupon and AwoRewards, and it works fine for me. Can you verify {coupon_expiration} is not misspelled? If that is not it, can you give me the details of the rule you created in AwoRewards?

    Hello,

    Thanks for the access. Just had a quick look, and in the profiles, one is correct, the other is not:

    Like Us on Facebook: {expiration}
    Follow Us on Twitter: {coupon_expiration}

    It definitely would not work in facebook. Where you testing twitter?

    Also I just tested your twitter template locally using a follow us on twitter rule, and it worked fine.

    Hi Seyi,

    I'm just testing the Twitter one at the moment. Its in the email the customer gets where its says "The coupon is valid until {coupon_expiration}."

    {coupon_expiration} is empty for me in all the test emails ?

    Ah, I see now. The key here is it is a parent coupon template. The code used to copy the coupon does not check parent coupons, I think because initially parent coupons did not have an expiration date.

    Ok, so here is the fix:
    in www/administrator/components/com_awocoupon/plgautogenerate.php, around line 39 is this:
    <?php
            
    if($crow->function_type!='parent' && !empty($expiration) && ctype_digit($expiration)) {
    ?>


    Change that line to this:
    <?php
            
    if(!empty($expiration) && ctype_digit($expiration)) {
    ?>


    That will fix it.

    Hi Seyi,

    Thats works. Thanks for your help with this. The file was actually in /administrator/components/com_awocoupon/helpers/

    Will this be included in the next update, or do i need to keep an eye on it for my circumstances ?

    Would that be where i would change the format as well ? Currently it comes out as YYYY-MM-DD but we prefer UK english DD-MM-YYYY

    Hello,

    It is part of the next update. Also in the next update the date will be in the format of your shop. To do this now,

    go to www/administrator/components/com_aworewards/helpers/estore/estorerewardshandler.php, around line 1485 is this:
    <?php
                array_push
    ($dynamic_tags['replace'], $coupon_row->coupon_code$coupon_row->coupon_price, !empty($coupon_row->expiration) ? date('Y-m-d'strtotime($coupon_row->expiration)) : '');
    ?>


    Change it to this
    <?php
                array_push
    ($dynamic_tags['replace'], $coupon_row->coupon_code$coupon_row->coupon_price, !empty($coupon_row->expiration) ? JHTML::_('date'$coupon_row->expiration) : '');
    ?>


    That should do it
