Highlighted Features
Updating Your Server

Please remember to check over the NATS server requirements whenever you or your host plan to make changes to the server where NATS is installed. Changes may include upgrades to PHP or Mysql, modifying the configuration of your server or making changes to any software to which NATS would have access (i.e.: ChartDirector/zip/unzip/ffmpeg/mplayer). If you are unsure of how any changes being made may affect NATS, please put in a support ticket with us here. For details in regards to our server requirements, please visit our online documentation here.

Server Move Support

Let us help you move your NATS installation. Too Much Media offers a service to help move your NATS or CARMA installation from one server to another. This service includes transferring files, checking that database connections work correctly, updating necessary configurations, and assist with your host to transfer the database if necessary. We provide this service for the fee of $300. To request a server move, please put in a support ticket with us here.

NATS Gateway One Step Join Page

Members will sign up using one page rather than two Would you like members signing up through your Gateway Billers to see 1 join page instead of 2? Within NATS, Admins can set their Gateway Billers to use a Gateway One Step Cascade. When using this process, a new member signing up will see both membership and payment details on 1 page instead of 2.

To set up a Gateway One Step join page, visit your Billers Admin and create a new cascade. Once created, you would add a Gateway Biller to be the first biller in this cascade. Next, edit the cascade itself (), change the weight to be set to "Gateway One Step Cascade" and save your changes. Like any other cascade, you would set the cascade rules () to make this cascade available for the sites you wish. While making these changes, please take note of the Cascade ID.

The next step in setting this up would be to modify the look and feel of the sign up page that will be displayed to a new member. When using a Gateway One Step, NATS will no longer use the "join" template for the affected site(s). Instead, NATS will use the "gateway_onestep_join" template within the given site. To edit this, visit your sites admin, click the Edit Site Templates icon () for the appropriate site, find the "gateway_onestep_join" template and click the appropriate icon to make changes to this template.

Once you have set up the cascade, set up display rules, and have updated the appropriate site templates, you will need to update the links to your join page to include the Cascade ID of the new cascade. An example link would look like this:
Adding "&cascade=3" (3 being the ID of your new cascade) to you join links will tell NATS to always use the new Gateway One Step Cascade and display the appropriate template to the member. For further details in regards to this set up please visit our documentation here.
