Tech Note: Automatic Ad-Free Subscriptions
I’ve just finished integrating the PayPal Instant Payment Notification system with our ad-free subscriptions, so that ad-free viewing is now automatically enabled if you subscribe while logged in to your LGF account. (And if you cancel your subscription, the ad-free flag will also be turned off automatically.)
This means you no longer have to contact me and let me know your username after subscribing, and I no longer have to manually set your ad-free flag in the LGF database. Easier for everyone. Yay!
Here’s the link to subscribe at PayPal, if anyone would like to help test this cutting edge new feature. (How’s that for a tricky way to hype subscriptions? Did I mention that LGF loads 2 or 3 times faster with the ads turned off? And it’s only 33 cents a day to subscribe? OK, I’ll stop.)
Note that you must be logged in to a registered LGF account before clicking that link for the automatic feature to work.
Meanwhile, here we have the tech geek/open thread for a Tuesday afternoon.
