Recent Updates
New Price For Server Moves

Effective immediately, the price of a NATS or CARMA server move has been dropped to $195. 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. Click here for more information about this server move. To request a server move, please put in a support ticket with us here.

Mod_auth_mysql and Apache 2.4

As of Apache 2.4, mod_auth_mysql has been discontinued. We have tested functionality of an alternative Apache module, mod_authn_dbd, which may be used as a replacement for mod_auth_mysql. Details on how to set this up to work with NATS can be found in our online documentation.

Highlighted Features
Mobile Tours

Would you like to cater to mobile traffic on your NATS join pages? In NATS, you can create a separate mobile tour where traffic will be redirected. Once set, NATS will identify surfers going through mobile devices and redirect the traffic accordingly to the new mobile tour set in NATS.

Admins Choose the mobile tour to use in the edit sites page

Setting up the mobile tour redirect in NATS will require a few steps. First, visit your Sites Admin within NATS and add a new tour for the appropriate site. As you add the tour, set the "Tour Type" option to "Mobile". Once you new tour has been added, edit your site details for that site. Find the option labeled "Mobile Tour" and select new mobile tour that was created and save your site details. Next, you will want to edit the any "_mobile" templates (Ex: join_mobile) within this new tour, since these will be displayed to any surfers visiting your join pages. Lastly, make sure that the appropriate programs are set up to be used for this tour. Once everything is set up, NATS will redirect any mobile surfers going through a tracking link to your new mobile tour for that site.

NATS Affiliate Postbacks

NATS allows Admins to grant special postback privileges to your affiliates. With this enabled, NATS will post transaction data to a URL (specified by the affiliate) each time a member transaction is reported to NATS. This may include when a member joins, rebills, and more.

Affiliates can set postback scripts once allowed.

Postbacks to affiliates work the same way as postbacks you would set up in your Admin area. Upon completion of any particular transaction, NATS will post to the URL specified, with all details in regards to the member. To allow your affiliate to receive postbacks you would first go to the Affiliates page of your Configuration Admin. On this page you will find a section labeled "Postbacks" that includes a list of postback types that can be used by your affiliates. Simply check off the appropriate type and click save. Once saved, each affiliate can visit the "External Postback Settings" section (on their My Account" page) to set their own postback URLs.

For further details in regards to setting up this feature or how Affiliates would use it, please refer to our on-line documentation here.
