Three day rental - how does it work?

Hi there,

We have figured a three day rental.
http://geneticroulettemovie.com/rentgrm/

I see that I need to set up API settings. Can you explain the reasoning for this? Will the web browser not remember the viewer if they return in day 2 to watch the video of their three day rental? I was able to create the Twitter API.

What do I need to do to create the FB App? On the API settings there is a URL that goes to: https://developers.facebook.com/apps

What steps do I need to take from here and what type of app do I need to develop?

Many thanks!

    Hiya @irt_it

    Greetings and thanks for posting on the forums.

    I see that I need to set up API settings. Can you explain the reasoning for this?

    API settings are required so that your site can communicate with Facebook and Twitter to provide social logins to your site.

    Here is how you can create a facebook app : https://premium.wpmudev.org/forums/topic/how-to-make-a-facebook-app

    Will the web browser not remember the viewer if they return in day 2 to watch the video of their three day rental?

    If you have setup Pay Per View, then you need to ensure that the cookie is set accordingly for 3 days. If that is setup, the browser will remember the viewer unless the cookies are deleted.

    In your case It seems that you are using a Daily pass. So in this case, cookies will not play a role as the authentication is done via their login. So they can access the content via any browser/computer.

    I hope that helps. Please feel free to ask if you have more questions on the same.

    Cheers

    Thank you for this information. However, I was just told in another post that I made on this forum that the API setting didn't need to be turned on?

    What if a user doesn't have a FB or Twitter account?

    In that case, they can simply use the standard WordPress login process. API login is an option and not a requirement.

    A user has to be registered in order to buy a daily pass. So you should simply ask the users to register on your WordPress site and they can then subscribe to the daily pass.

    Cheers, PC
