NOTE: This special page functions different from all other special pages. It appears as a pop-up over the "Subscription payment" special page. See below.


Purpose of the subscription expired special page

The subscription expired special page informs members that their subscription has expired, and is shown when they cannot access timebank functions. It can be used to offer instructions on how to removes the limited access from their account. The contents of this page are displayed in a pop-up box when:


  1. the payment feature is enabled for the timebank AND
  2. the timebank me mber is overdue with their payments to ther timebank AND
  3. the Restrict member access feature is activated AND
  4. the timebank member is logged in AND
  5. the timebank member clicks on one of the following
   Timebankers' Talents
   Members
   Offers
   Requests
   Post offer
   Post request
   Record an Exchange

The pop-up appears over the the Subscription payments special page which is shown to the timebank member at the same time.


If the timebank clicks on Offers by Category or Requests by Category they will see a list of categories with the number of offers, but when they click on a sub-category, they will also be shown this subscription expired pop-up.


Although the timebank member cannot use the offers, requests, timebanker's Talents and record an exchange, they will be able to see and edit their own profile.

  3. Become that member
  4. Click on a timebank function such as "Offers"
  5. You will see that your special page about subscription payments appears and on top of that the pop-up about subscription expired.
