Hi all

Have been intrigued with the possibility of gifting Supporting membership for another user. I clicked the link in the banner stating about it but could find only monthly or annual membership for myself. I it because I'm using chrome on my android phone? Will I find it if I use a Windows pc? Also what are the options for gifting? Can it be a month or does it have to be a year's membership?

Cheers

I have just checked on my tablet and it works for me, If you use this link then click gift you should see a pop up box with a space where you enter the name of the member you want to gift it to.

The first link should take you directly to the sign in page the second will show the page mentioned above.

Nope, all I get are options to purchase or subscribe for myself (take me to PayPal)

Could it be that I have an ad blocker enabled?, I'll try on a Windows pc later and see what happens

I have now also tried it on my phone with Opera browser which has a built in ad blocker and I still see the two pages as earlier, could a few members try the links and post what you see inclining what you are using to access the site and which browser, thanks.

Could i ask a few members to visit THIS PAGE then click on the "gift 1 month" button (see picture 1 below) and let me know if you then get the pop up box in picture 2.

Could you let us know if you see it or don't and what you are using to access the site including which browser, thanks.

Thanks, i logged out then visited the page and there was no option to gift (as below) only to subscribe so it looks like you are right and only Supporting Members can gift it to others.

I found where one user group did not have the gift ability turned on. I've double checked all member groups and all can now gift. Please check it out to make sure I didn't over look anything.
