DAP v4.3 Beta

Share this

Hey there Dapper!

We’re absolutely ecstatic to announce the release of DAP v4.3 and LiveLinks v1.8!

This release is jam packed with oh-so-many goodies: Tons of new features, UI and Usability improvements, enhancements to many of the little nagging items, and of course, a few bug fixes too.

And with this new release, you can now also install and use DAPTicket, our support ticket plugin fully integrated with DAP (details further below).

New WordPress Integration Features

  • NEW: When you log in as WP admin, or browse any part of WP admin, you’re automatically logged in as DAP admin (DAP admin user with the least user id, in case you have more than one DAP admin user). No more having to log in separately to DAP. This is also configurable (default is YES). In case you do not want WP admins to be auto-logged in as DAP admin, then you can set this to NO under Setup > Config.
  • NEW: When you log out of DAP by going to http://YourSite.com/dap/logout.php, you will now also be logged out of WordPress, whether you are WP Admin or regular WP user
  • NEW: When you log out of WordPress, regardless of whether you are WP Admin or regular WP user, you will now also be logged out of DAP.
  • NEW: Reverse sync from WP to DAP now available. So, if a regular user goes to the standard WP profile page, and updates first name, last name or email id, their corresponding DAP record will also be updated. This also disables regular users from even updating their password in the WP profile page. So, the only place they can update password is via the DAP profile.
  • NEW: Shortcode [DAPUserLinks]: Allows you to heavily customize how the links are displayed when you use the merge tag %%USERLINKS%%
    [DAPUserLinks showProductName="N" showAccessStartDate="Y" showAccessEndDate="Y" showDescription="Y" showLinks="Y" orderOfLinks="NEWESTFIRST" howManyLinks="10000" errMsgTemplate="SHORT" productId="ALL" dateFormat="YYYY-MM-DD"]
  • NEW: "Coming Soon" Shortcode [DAPComingSoon]: Allows you to display links that are coming soon.
    [DAPComingSoon showProductName="Y" showAccessStartDate="Y" showAccessEndDate="Y" showDescription="Y" showLinks="Y" orderOfLinks="NEWESTFIRST" howManyLinks="10000" errMsgTemplate="SHORT" productId="ALL" makelinksclickable="N" dateFormat="YYYY-MM-DD"]
  • NEW: Merge tags for WordPress: %%USER_ID%%, %%PASSWORD%%, %%SITE_NAME%%
  • NEW: Shortcode Features:
        – "publicUntil": You can set a date UNTIL which a blog post is public (no protection or rules will be applied from any other shortcode parameters.
        [DAP publicUntil="2012-12-31" hasAccessTo="1"]This message will be completely public UNTIL (and including) December 31st, 2012[/DAP]
       
        – "publicAfter": You can set a date AFTER which a blog post will become public (no protection or rules will be applied from any other shortcode parameters.
        [DAP publicAfter="2012-01-01" hasAccessTo="1"]This message will be completely public AFTER (and including) January 1st, 2012[/DAP]
       
        – "hasNoAccessTo": A much requested feature. You can now specify a list of products that a user does NOT have access to, like this:
        [DAP hasAccessTo="2" hasNoAccessTo="1,3" ]This message will appear only to active (current) users of product 2 but don’t have access to 1 or 3[/DAP]
       
        – "startday" and "endday": Now you can specify "startday" and "endday" in the shortcodes to make the contents stop being shown after a certain end "day". Previously available "day" variable has been deprecated and replaced by "startday" instead. However, if you already are using it somewhere, it will continue to work as is. However, if you wish to use the "endday" variable, you must now also use "startday" instead of "day". Very useful for, say, displaying a message on the Welcome page only on the first day.
        [DAP hasAccessTo="2" startday="1" endday="1"]This message will appear to you only to users of Product 2, on Day 1 and no further[/DAP]
       
        – Negative Days: "startday" and "endday" can also be a negative number.
        For eg., [DAP hasAccessTo="2" startDay="-6" endDay="-3"]Howdy[/DAP]
        This basically means, the message "Howdy" will be shown starting 6 days before the "Access End Date" of the user’s access to the product with Id "2" (specified in hasAccessTo). So you can use this to display a special message – or specially priced offer (buy button) – for those whose access has not yet expired. Last day (same day of access end date) is day 0. Day before that is -1.
       
        – Error Message From File: You can now specify a file name whose contents are to be used as error message. Use the existing errMsgTemplate field, but add a "file:…" to the beginning, and make sure the file name is a fully qualified URL starting with http:// and your domain name. So you can say…
        [DAP hasAccessTo="2" startday="1" endday="1" errMsgTemplate="file:http://YourSite.com/customMessage.html"]This message will appear to you only today[/DAP]

New Affilate Features

  • You can now show your affiliates more information about their referrals in their affiliate report. In Setup > Config, you can now configure the following info to be shown to the affiliate (only for their own referrals, of course):
    First Name, Last Initial (Default) (or)
    First Name, Last Name (or)
    First Name, Last Name, Email (or)
    First Name, Last Name, Email, Phone
  • Ability to remove associated affiliates (including making user "UN-Affiliated" – meaning, no affiliates attached to the user any more)
  • Ability Re-assign a new affiliate to a user
  • Instant Affiliate Credit enabled even for Free signups. So new free members no longer have to log in for affiliate to get credit – it happens instantly upon signup.
  • Both you and your affiliates can now view referral data for free sign-ups too. Just add a commission row for each free product with 0.00 commissions (if you don’t wish to pay a PER LEAD commission, but still want your affiliates to see the details of the referral). And then, when an affiliate refers someone to your web site and the visitor signs up for a free product, your affiliate can see the new sign up as a "Lead" in their affiliate report.

New DAP Admin/Usability Features

  • NEW: All real-time emails to be sent using SMTP (if configured)
  • NEW: Drag & Drop rearranging and re-ordering of links within same drip day, is now possible (on "ContentResponder" tab)
  • NEW: Newly signed up "Free Signup" subscribers will now be instantly logged into the member’s area. But NO auto-login for double-optin enabled products – they must confirm first. And NO auto-login for those who are already a member, and are only signing up for a new free product.
  • NEW: You can now have a limited-duration one-time product. Previously, all one-time signups were assigned "9999-12-31" as access end date. No longer necessary. You can set a limited duration – like 30 days, or 90 or 365 days as the duration of your one-time product. And if you set the "Membership Duration" to 9999, then as before, it will set access end date for user to "9999-12-31".
  • NEW: New Config item: To allow "display" of protected links in the menu even if the user does NOT have access to it (regardless of Sneak-Peek)
  • NEW: New Config item: Is Free Product?
  • NEW: New Config item: Allow Free Sign-up?
  • NEW: New Config Item: Global Sales Page URL (for when a user has access to more than one Product)
  • NEW: New Config Item: Global Error Page URL (for when a user has access to more than one Product)
  • NEW: New Config item: Allow Auto-login of WP admin as DAP admin?
  • NEW: LiveLinks to use new global sales page url and global error page url
  • NEW: No more having to worry about free users not having access to paid content. It is all controlled by whether or not someone has access to a product. If they have access to a product, free or paid, as long as access dates are OK, they will get access to the content assigned to the product.
  • NEW: Ability to sort Products ordered by Product Name or Product Id – ascending or descending
  • NEW: Affiliate referer links shortened in referral report for both Admin home page as well as Affiliate report page
  • NEW: To improve performance, number of rows in affiliate referral report now restricted to just 2000 on Admin home page
  • NEW: Login count field is now updated for each successful login attempt by user. Not yet exposed in DAP Admin area. Will be available in the next release.
  • NEW: Logs were showing last 1000 rows. Instead, will now show all logs for the day
  • NEW: On the "Content responder" tab, next to the heading "Protected Content", it now shows how many links are protected as part of the product. Eg. (# of protected links: 8)
  • NEW: Product list now shows up as a drop-down at the top of the Product screen tabs, so that it’s always visible even when moving across tabs.
  • NEW: On Products page, moving from one product to another will keep admin on same tab even across different products. So switching products (only when using drop-down) will NO LONGER make you jump back to the new product’s "General Settings" tab. You will remain on whatever tab you were on previously.
  • NEW: ContentResponder tab’s contents can now be "popped out" and shown in large window, so you can even see long links without any part getting cut off from the display. And then you can pop the window back in once done.
  • NEW: Now you can mass-delete all Autoresponder Emails from Product in one click
  • NEW: New lines in /dap/inc/language/english.php
    //———- Added in v4.3 ———//
    define("USER_LINKS_COMINGSOON_TEXT","Coming Soon…");
    define("USER_LINKS_COMINGSOON_PREFIX_TEXT","[In XXX day(s)]");
    define("MSG_UNSUBSCRIBE","[In XXX day(s)]");
    define("MSG_MANDATORY","Sorry, all fields are mandatory. Please go ‘back’ and fill up the missing information.");
    define("MSG_INVALID_EMAIL","Sorry, the email address you entered is invalid. Please go ‘back’ and enter a valid email address.");
    define("MSG_INVALID_COUPON","Sorry, the coupon code you entered is invalid. Please go ‘back’ and enter a valid coupon code.");
    define("MSG_MISSING_COUPON","Sorry, coupon code is a required field. Please go ‘back’ and enter a valid coupon code.");
    define("MSG_PAYMENT_FAILED","Payment failed. Please contact the site admin. ");
    define("MSG_THANKYOU_SIGNUP","SUCCESS! Thank you for signing up. Please check your email for further details.");
    define("BUTTON_UPDATE","Update");
    define("SUCCESS_CREATION","SUCCESS! Your account has been successfully created! Please check your inbox for login information…");
    define("NO_AUTH","Sorry, you are either not logged in, or not authorized to perform this operation.");

List of Improved Features

  • IMPROVED: Category protection error message.
    • If a category is protected as part of just 1 product, and someone doesn’t have access to it, then DAP will redirect to Product-Level Error Page URL. If that is blank, it will use Global Error Page URL.
    • If part of multiple products, goes directly to Global Error Page URL.
    • If DAP tries to use Global Error Page URL (however it got there), then if that field is also blank (or defaults to /dap/product-error.php), then it will use "In-Page Error Message with Padlock".
  • IMPROVED: Logging in thru Login/Logout widget on any page is now considered a primary login.
  • IMPROVED: When DAP Admin removes welcome/thankyou mesg, now shows a WARNING
  • IMPROVED: When Product is saved, if there is no welcome mesg, now shows a WARNING
  • IMPROVED: If Product is recurring, you can no longer set "recurring count" to null or 0 (in Products page)
  • IMPROVED: Clicking on the link to a post that’s part of a product’s available content output from %%USERLINKS%% no longer opens that post in a new window
  • IMPROVED: Product description may not be more than 127 characters. Cannot save product settings if it’s more.
  • IMPROVED: Changed default templates for new installations: Forgot password subject and body, Locked email body
  • IMPROVED: One-time products with access end date of "9999-12-31" will no longer be highlighted with a warning color.
  • IMPROVED: Enter key works during login now
  • IMPROVED: If recurring is Y and recurring cycle 1 is not set, then show ERROR

WARNING: READ THIS BEFORE YOU UPGRADE

There a few critical things you need to remember to do BEFORE and IMMEDIATELY AFTER you upgrade.

BEFORE UPGRADING

This release is BETA – not for use on already LIVE web sites with ongoing sales

If you’re already running a live web site that’s generating sales, then you should probably skip this beta release, and wait for the final release.

However, if you’re just getting started with DAP, or if you are at least a week or so from launching, then we highly recommend that you upgrade to this version, as it has so many usability features and fixes to nagging issues from the past, that it will make things a LOT easier for you during setup and maintenance.

Make sure you are not mixing FREE and PAID users in the same DAP Product.

Starting with DAP v4.3, if a user has access to a product, they will get access to content within the product (as per drip dates and access expiry, of course). The only thing that changes is…. you no longer have to make sure that content is marked as FREE in order for FREE users to be able to access it, or worry about mistakenly adding a user as FREE to a paid product, and forgetting to mark them as PAID, and then they have an issue accessing the content. This is the biggest issue for most people starting with DAP, so we’ve finally decided to fix it the right way.

So the thumb rule here is…

If User has access to Product, it doesn’t matter if they’re a free or paid user, it doesn’t matter if your content is marked as free or marked as paid – they WILL get access to the content in the product (depending on their access start and end dates, drip days/dates, etc – no change to those things).

AFTER UPGRADING

Revisit ALL of your FREE products and set "Allow Free Signup?" = "Yes"

DAP 4.3 has a new field on the "General Settings" tab of the Products > Manage page, called "Allow Free Signup?". If you are using a free DAP signup form (also known as "Direct Signup Form" or "Free Signup Form" in DAP) to sign up people for free to a DAP Product, OR if you are doing Aweber-to-DAP integration (where you sign them up for free to Aweber first, and then have Aweber add them to DAP), then be sure to set this new field to "Yes" for all such FREE products.

You need to do this only for your free products. If you don’t do it, your free DAP signup forms will no longer work.

By default, after upgrading to v4.3, all of your DAP Products will be set to "Allow Free Signup?" = "No" – so there will be no impact to your existing paid products.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do ask them via the comments section below.

Cheers!

  1. Hi Ravi, it the Beta version looks good…however I didn’t see a previously requested feature: NOTES
    Whenever we add a member as “Free” or “Paid”, we need to be able to make “NOTES” as to WHY we or one of our staff gave them a Free or Paid membership…
    PLEASE give us a NOTES add-on for EACH of our members.
    thanks,
    Bill

  2. I am going to cry. I’ve been waiting for these upgrades ever since you hinted they were coming! There are so many that I have wanted that I am giddy with joy. (If you can imagine a 70 y.o. geezer being giddy with anything!)

    I could kiss you both! Well Ravi, maybe not exactly both.

  3. WoW! Nice work guys. Now, I would like to know how do I download it because I cannot see in my DAP admin.
    Thanks

  4. Thanks for this guys. One of the thing that did bother me has now been fixed. That was the separate login from WP admin to DAP admin.

    Thanks for the updates!

  5. Sounds great ! Many improvements…I especially like the wp – dap accounts sync for users.

  6. Ravi & Veena: Wow! Awesome! Thank you for including the Affiliate Upgrades allowing affiliate tagging for Free Signups. That’s sweet! I have many affiliates who are going to be excited about getting credit for generating leads. I can now use my proven follow-up auto-responders to motivate the leads to buy…AND the affiliate will earn commissions from those leads. Win-Win. Thank you for listening and incorporating into DAP. You two rock!

  7. Very excited the beta is out. Going to install on dev site now.

    Tons of features/fixed that I have been waiting for.

  8. Wow! Thanks Ravi & Veena – this is exciting stuff. I will use the New Affiliate Features right away and am glad to see that the “Free Signup” subscribers will now be instantly logged into the member’s area. Lot’s of goodies here!

    Dave

  9. You guys are “gettin’ it done!” Thanks for your excellent work, customer support, and industry-knowledgeable thinking. You’re the best. We need to start a “Veena & Ravi Fanclub”!

  10. Ravi and Veena – great improvements indeed. I’ve been waiting since 1.0 for ordering of the products and pages, since I have about 30 courses with 2-15 modules in each 🙂 in IMSuccessLibrary.com – and they’ve been all jumbled up. How long do you think until final release?

    Bob

  11. Bravo! Will you be releasing a demo video soon to take us through the new features, as many of they are hard to comprehend/appreciate with just a text description?

    Thanks!

  12. There are way too many things here to say thank you for individually, so most of all, I’d like to thank you for the sync between DAP and WordPress. That will make my work so much smoother.

    I also love the “hasnoaccessto” feature that will let me tease my members – GREAT!

    Hopefully, the one feature we talked about will be ready for the non-beta release (PayPal adaptive payments). I’m chompin’ at the bit for that one. You guys are already light years ahead of your competitors and continue to do amazing things, but that feature will blow everyone out of the water and give us DAP marketers an additional edge that no one else has.

    Thanks for all your work, Veena & Ravi!

    Sincerely,
    Eric Michael Moore

  13. You guys really set the example of how to run a business. I have not purchased the product. I’ve just been watching on the sideline while I figure out what I can sell. Great job.

  14. Thank you! I also love that I don’t have to login twice each time I want to access the DAP dashboard!! And so many other items. I have just referred 2 new clients to create a member site using DAP!!

    Evelyn

  15. What an amazing update. I can’t believe how much you guys get done. I’m always amazed at how much just a couple of brilliant people can accomplish.

    Two questions…

    1. Will this update contain the ability to see where customers are in a drip/autoresponder sequence?

    2. When will this be “Outta-Beta” so I can install this puppy on my site?

    Thanks again Ravi & Veena! You both ROCK.

  16. Thanks everyone for your comments :).
    Your appreciation and support means a lot to us.

    >>Do we also need to re install all the WickedCool Plugins? << No, you do not have to re-install the WickedCool Plugins. The DAP Ticket Plugin is also ready for install. We will add documentation for DAP Ticket later today. The download is already available in your WCP member's area. >>Will you be releasing a demo video soon to take us through the new features, as many of they are hard to comprehend/appreciate with just a text description? << Sure, we will do a demo video for some of the critical parts of upgrade. The most important thing with this upgrade is how we have simplified the content access for paid/free users. We were addressing many support tickets related to isFree=N in ContentResponder section. So instead of setting content level free/paid indicator, we have completely simplified the approach. If a user has access to a product, they get access to all content dripped under the product based on drip day/date settings. You just have to designate at product level whether you want to allow free signups or not for a product. If it's a paid product, set "Allow Free Signup?" to "N" (that's also the default setting for the products). If it's a free product, set "Allow Free Signup?" to "Y" in DAP Products page. That's it. Now if a user signs up using the free signup form (free product), they will have access to all content dripped under the free product (based on drip day/date). The isFree indicator will NOT be used going forward. If you set "Allow Free Signup?" to "N", then the ONLY way a user can get access is by making an actual purchase (OR DAP admins can give users access manually). You cannot generate a free signup form if "Allow Free Signup?" is set to "N". Pls read the "WARNING: READ THIS BEFORE YOU UPGRADE" instructions very carefully before you apply DAP 4.3 on a live site.

  17. As a user of DAP for over a year now, it’s great to see it being actively developed as there is a lot of software out there that gets launched with great fanfare and then is forgotten.

  18. Hi Frank,

    >>Any updates to the SSS plugin? << Not in this release but next release will be all about SSS. It's going to simply awesome. We have a big list of changes / upgrades planned for SSS. It will take SSS to a whole new level. More to come soon!

  19. Hi Bob,

    >>How long do you think until final release? << 3-4 weeks. Even if it's not final by then, it will be stable enough for you to apply to your site.

  20. Hi Veena & Ravi.

    Great Job Guys, outstanding, looking forward to the stable version.

    Curious, How will it go with Vbull and 2co? Will it slot in ok? Through the updrade.

    Also are you guys looking at ways to improve the Vbull integration, as a user can change their accounts in vbull, then DAP curls its toes and makes the user unable to login to their DAP account.

    Also ‘sometimes’ DAP wont pickup a ‘username’ coming from the 2co process, when this happens a new user cannot login. We are kind of having to check ‘every’ user after signup, and then go through the login processof DAP to make sure that account works.

    Just another idea, when a user does signup, their First & Last Name becomes their ‘username’. This then is displayed in Vbull, some dont like the fact that their Full names are being displayed. (if they try to change it in Vbull, again DAP curls its toes…. A member cant update their username in their DAP profile (which is fine, to a point) but maybe adding a ‘Display Name’ Field for them to change themselves – this would reduce the complaints and then the admin having to change every request. (just a thought)

    – again, you are doing a great Job, I am very happy with your product and your support has been A1. From what I have read here, you guys have been working hard, the changes and additions will be very welcomed!

    Thanks 😉

    Cheers

  21. Will the new version let me see which members are
    logged into the site, and record their visits? This is
    key to me switching all my member sites from Wishlist
    Member to DAP?

    Lauren

  22. Hi Lauren,

    >>Will the new version let me see which members are
    logged into the site, and record their visits? << It's not possible yet but we will certainly support it in a future release.

  23. Hi Shan,
    >> Curious, How will it go with Vbull and 2co? Will it slot in ok? << We did simplify VBulletin integration rules in dap 4.3. The 'Registered Users' usergroup is no longer added as the default/primary usergroup. Whatever rule you add in the DAP admin -> VB forum mapping page.. will now be used to add as primary usergroup instead of primary usergroup being defaulted to ‘Registered Users’. This way you can better control VB forum access (restrict view/post permissions).

    In the older versions, dap defaulted the primary usergroup to ‘Registered Users’ during VB sync and there wasn’t a easy way to just allow FORUM view but prevent POST access for users. The default permission of ‘Registered Users’ usergroup in VB is both view and post access.

    If you want to upgrade to 4.3 but do not want VB stuff updated, you can easily revert back to 4.2.1 or prior version of VB by simply backing up /dap/plugins/vbulletin/Dap_Vbulletin.class.php before the dap 4.3 upgrade. If things dont work the way you want with VB after 4.3 upgrade, you can revert back to older version of /dap/plugins/vbulletin/Dap_Vbulletin.class.php.

    >>Just another idea, when a user does signup, their First & Last Name becomes their ‘username’. This then is displayed in Vbull, some dont like the fact that their Full names are being displayed. (if they try to change it in Vbull, again DAP curls its toes…. A member cant update their username in their DAP profile (which is fine, to a point) but maybe adding a ‘Display Name’ Field for them to change themselves – this would reduce the complaints and then the admin having to change every request. (just a thought) << You can configure dap to NOT auto-sync to VB. You can configure to ONLY sync when users pick a username. If you want dap to auto-sync to VB but still provide a way for the users to update their username later, we will look into it in a future DAP->VB upgrade.

  24. I am a DAP user. Does this upgrade allow us to see when the last time a user accessed their account? This is such an important feature so that we know how many users are still actually active. Please someone answer this as Ive trawled the net for this information or how it can be attained?

  25. Some users reported this error during DAP 4.3 BETA install on a NEW site:

    Fatal error: Class ‘Dap_Config’ not found in …/DAP-WP-LiveLinks/DAP-WP-LiveLinks.php on line 54

    We have a fix for this and the fix will be uploaded to our site shortly. I will add a comment here after the fix is uploaded to our site.

  26. It looks like two Adam are here.
    I added J letter to mine name.
    Veena, where do I find download link?
    I’ve already asked at the very beginning.
    I cannot see in DAP mbrs area.
    Thanks

  27. We have uploaded the fix.

    Pls download livelinks 1.8 and upload to /wp-content/plugins/ folder overwriting the existing DAP-WP-LiveLinks content.

  28. You guys rock… making an awesome product even awesomer! I’ve got a quick question…

    My sales funnel (like many) is that the user goes to a squeeze page, opts in, gets a few free bits of content, then I sell them something. Something I was dying for that until this release was missing was the ability for affiliates to know how many leads they sent… so that is great… but here is my question…

    Am I better off making 2 products, 1 for the lead, and one for the sale… or should I just make it 1 product, and use the “free user” optin code for the optin, and the paid for the paid. If I do it this way, will the affiliate still be able to see the leads they have generated? What are the advantages and disadvantages (if any) of each?

  29. You mention that we should ‘Revisit ALL of your FREE products and set “Allow Free Signup?” = “Yes”‘. When I do this then hit “Save”, the page refreshes, and changes “Allow Free Signup” back to “No”.

  30. Hi Dan,

    It’s possible that the upgrade didnot go through fully.

    Pls open a support ticket and we will troubleshoot it.

  31. Wow! A lot of great features. I’ve been waiting to be able to order a product to use DAP on my main site.

    I really need the ability to see a customer’s progress also. I mean when they last logged in and where they are in the course. I didn’t see this as a listed upgrade.

    Is there another way around this?

    Tomas

  32. Hi Tomas,

    No, dap 4.3 does not show ‘when the user last logged in’ info.

    As far as where they are in the course is concerned, you can maybe use the NEW: “Coming Soon” Shortcode [DAPComingSoon]. It will display links that are coming soon based on where the user is in their drip schedule.

    We will adding a lot more reporting features for the admin in a future release of DAP.

  33. Hi Adam,
    >>Now, I would like to know how do I download it because I cannot see in my DAP << Pls open a support ticket so we can take a look at your account.

  34. Upon upgrade to dap 4.3 beta, if you are not able to set “allow free signup” to “Yes” because it switches back to “No” OR if you are not able to save changes to product, pls do this:

    Clear browser cache/cookies, logout of dap and WP admin panel, then log back in first to WP admin, then to dap. That should fix it.

  35. Veena/Ravi – Do update the comment section and/or send out an email to Dappers when the final version of 4.3 gets released. I am holding my DAPTicket installation till then.

  36. Ankur,
    It’s pretty stable now but yes, we will send out an email when the final version is released.

  37. I love the new option to customize UserLinks, but I have a separate page for each product. Is there any way to customize the Products_Details merge tag, too?

  38. Hi Nicole,
    No, can’t customize Products_Details yet. We plan on first adding “shortcode based customize userprofile” feature and then add more customization options for other merge tags.

  39. Hi Veena,

    Thank you for great support as always.
    I renewed yesterday and now awaiting for 4.3.1 appear in my DAP admin.

  40. DAP 4.3 is FINAL now! You can download dap 4.3.1 and LiveLinks v1.8.1 from your members area on our site and upload to your site.

    Pls read the ‘WARNING: READ THIS BEFORE YOU UPGRADE’ in this blog post before you upgrade.

    Thanks,
    Veena

  41. Are there merge tags equivalent to STARTDAY that can be inserted in the new ErrorMsg file.

    For example, if I wanted a logged in user to see a message such as:

    “Your access to Product A will begin on %%STARTDAY%%. Come back then, Oh Favorite Subscriber of mine.”
