Bonus Content Management
Location - Plug-Ins

Configure options are extensive and include options for an overlay image as well as the size of the preview thumbnails to use for each bonus content item.

In order to use an overlay, upload a transparent gif or a png file to your /members/content/ folder. In the Overlay Image form field, enter only the filename of the overlay. For example "overlay1.png" and upon clicking the submit button your image will be resized and the overlay will be applied. For best results we suggest using a png for all watermarks and overlays. Note - the system will not resize the watermark image.

Add/Edit:
The Bonus Plug-In provides control for individual items that need to be managed separate from other content. By default, the system accepts 4 types of bonus content. These are bonus sites, feeds, audio files and erotic stories. XSL template support is required to give each content type a unique layout, look and feel.

Bonus sites can be scheduled to be released by date or by days visible if the Timed Content Release System is enabled which is especially useful when adding a large package of feeds or syncing the addition of new news or blog entries with the display of new bonus items.

Thumbs:
This page controls the thumbnail image associated with a bonus item.

You can set a specific thumbnail size for uploaded thumbs and have the system resize and crop the image to these dimensions as well as set the compression level for specific thumbnails.

You also have the option to add a custom overlay (watermark) image for thumbnails. In order to use an overlay, upload a transparent gif or a png file to your /members/content/ folder. In the Overlay Image form field, enter only the filename of the overlay. For example "overlay1.png" and upon clicking the submit button your image will be resized and the overlay will be applied. For best results we suggest using a png for all watermarks and overlays. Note - the system will not resize the watermark image.

Priority Field:
The priority field is used to assign priorities to preview thumbnails. Priorities can be used to determine the listing/display order of thumbnails on a page. We also use priority to manage multiple thumbnail sizes. For example, there might be a large and small thumbnail that represents each item. The priority value lets us display the correct sized photo in the intended location on a site.
