Renewal Payment ?


Say link is paid and not set to expire for 9 months, link owner goes to modify a link and sees this:

Renewal Payment, Why?

This line in link.html

<%if paymentsEnabled%><a href="<%config.db_cgi_url%>/modify.cgi?do=payment_linked;process_payment=1;modify=1;ID=<%ID%>"><%if not wasPaid%>New Payment<%else%>Renewal Payment<%endif%></a><%endif%>

I believe it makes sense to only show the Renewal Payment link when a link is about to expire or is expired?

Feedback Please!

How About Something Like This:

<%if paymentsEnabled%><a href="<%config.db_cgi_url%>/modify.cgi?do=payment_linked;process_payment=1;modify=1;ID=<%ID%>">
<%if not wasPaid%>New Payment<%else%>
<%if expiry_links.length != 1%>Renewal Payment<%endif%</a><%endif%>

Showing the link allows the user to renew their link early (like renewing your domain, you should be able to do it at any time, not just near the expiry date), and also allows the user to upgrade their payment level (although they do lose the time between the time they renew and the expiry date). It's easy enough to change if you don't wish to show it, although you'll have to write a global to do the date calculations.

Thanks for answering my question, I think it's best not to change it.
