Script for team members to join your team on all BOINC projects
We have added a script to our download section here that team founders can add to their own team website to allow team members join their team on all BOINC projects with one simple click. This is a major benefit to teams as currently team members have to visit every project individually to join their team.
To use this script and get it working on your team website, you will need access to your host server and a basic knowledge of installing and editing php files. If you install this script on your team website, its essential that you read the "READ_ME.txt" file that comes with it. You will need to edit some of the files to make the script work for your team. Out of courtesy to the script developers, please leave the credits and links intact.
You must register on the forum and login to download the team join script! You can register HERE and login HERE!
Where can i see this working?
I have an unedited version of the script installed here as an example. Don't use the script or you will be joining team Ireland; http://www.boincteams.com/testpages/join_team_script/join.php
You can see what this team join script looks like fully installed and edited on the UK BOINC team website here; http://www.ukboincteam.org.uk/ubt-joinus-page.html , or on the team Ireland website here; http://www.irelandboinc.com/join-team-ireland. I suggest you don't try it out on these example websites because the script will make you a member of that team!
Where can i get help and ask questions?
Help is avalable to answer any questions you might have on the forum in the general messages section. Or chat about the team join script in THIS message.
