    Can I purchase an account upgrade as a gift for someone on the forum?

    Okay by me, but Thunderfall would have to implement.

    I would like to gift it with the option of yearly or permanent. Could it also include a link to the description of benefits for the user to read?

    Request if I could attach a message to the gifting so that user knows who it is received from.

    This is holiday season, it could be an attractive option for others if it was implemented. :)

    I installed the "Gift Upgrades" addon, but can't seem to figure out where the gift option could be found. :confused:
    I have reached out to the creator of the addon for help.

    If you figure out before I do, let me know. :)

    I figured it out! :woohoo: It was due to the gift option is not set to true by default. I have enabled it for all Registered users.

    You can see the gift option when you click on a user profile or on a post next to the like link.
    You can also see the gift button on the Account Upgrades page.

    adan_eslavo was given the gift but it hasn't applied yet. Does he has to accept?

    Thanks for letting me know the issue, Ryan.

    I have applied the upgrade to adan_eslavo manually for now.
    Will follow up with the addon creator to see why it was not automatically applied.

    Thanks for your support!

    It is more blessed to give than to receive.
