Okay, after 14000 lines of new code, the voucher system is live  :yippee: and this is how it works :

If you are watching this video from the Xmas email:
The gift is a credit and not a voucher.
This means there is no voucher number required.
You can add items to your cart as normal, then at checkout you will see there is a Minus Block below the items in your basket.
Inside that block you can either enter a voucher number or select how many credits to use.
In this case you need to select how many credits to use.

To see this in action forward to 2 minutes and 50 seconds into the video below to see how to use your credits

how to use the voucher system

you can also gift a member directly in the forum by clicking this icon (it will only show if you have credits available):

Very impressive and, really quite brilliant Nolan!  :clap: :clap:
I can't start to imagine just how much skill and work is required to create such a system.
I like how you've added these gifting options. I look forward to lots of Xmas credits heading my way from the other members! lol :) ;D

Wow - what a nice surprise!   :thankyou:  Nolan and Dennis :santa: .   I ordered Photo-editing for Artists.  I wanted to take that back when it was live, but for some reason couldn't, maybe I was out of town.  So - I'm excited to get it now.  What a nice Christmas present.  Love you guys -  :1hug: - to both of you!
And,  :thankyou:  Nolan for your hard work getting the voucher system up and running in time for Christmas!  As if there isn't already enough to do to get ready for this holiday!  :pullhair: Now, can you rest for a bit and enjoy the season?  :coffee:    :party:  I sure hope so.   :peace:
